Red Sonja lived with her family in a humble house in the Western Hyrkanian steppes (this seems to be in modern Ukraine/Russia though historical Hyrcania was on the borders of modern Iran/Turkmenistan). When she had just turned 17 years old, a group of mercenaries killed her family and burned down their house. Sonja survived but was brutally raped by the leader of the group, leaving her in shame. Answering her cry for revenge, the red goddess Scthach appeared to her, and instilled in her incredible skill in the handling of swords and other weapons on the condition that she would never lie with a man unless he defeated her in fair combat.

Conan is a Cimmerian. (It is known from Robert E. Howard's writings that the Cimmerians were based on the Celts, a barbarian tribal group of early Europe.) One of his grandfathers, however, came from a southern tribe. He was born on a battlefield and is the son of a village blacksmith. Conan matured quickly as a youth and, by age fifteen, he was already a respected warrior who had participated in the destruction of the Aquilonian outpost of Venarium. After its demise, he was struck by wanderlust and began the adventures chronicled by Howard, encountering skulking monsters, evil wizards, tavern wenches, and beautiful princesses. He roamed throughout the Hyborian Age nations as a thief, outlaw, mercenary and pirate. As he grew older, he began commanding larger units of men and escalating his ambitions. In his forties, he seized the crown of the tyrannical king of Aquilonia, the most powerful kingdom of the Hyborian Age, having strangled the previous ruler on the steps of the throne. Conan's adventures often result in him performing heroic feats, though his motivation for doing so is largely to protect his own survival or for personal gain.

Yeah, I gotta agree with da Pijster, on both the poses and lighting. Do love the design work on Sonja, though.

 Re: Conan & Red Sonja
I'll leave it to you to decipher whether I'm spouting wisdom or nonsense because I've had a few adult beverages tonight but Sonja and Conan have some decent action poses while it seems like everybody else is standing around waiting for the camera to take shot. Good characters, decent layout but as a scene, it falls a little short (though I appreciate the work involved creating so many characters, who all look great, BTW). Lighting's a bit flat too although ambition alone would be enough for a thumbs up here, there's better stuff still going on. Well done
