A tip of the hat to Robert E. Howard’s barbarian woman

Here is a tip of the hat to Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian age. I have always felt the campy fun and extravagance of the swords-and-sorcery genre has a strong appeal. The barbarian woman has been a part of kitschy adolescent-male fantasies for a long time. What this particular barbarian woman is running from, I do not know, but it is likely a huge, really scary monster. However, the likelihood of an enormous pelt wearing male barbarian rescuing her seems great. I created this drawing with pen and ink.
