Normally I like your work but this Conan is kind of scrawny looking.

The narrative itself has complex times gone by. Howard at first wrote a tale called "The Frost King's Daughter", featuring Amra of Akbitana. When that didn't sell, he rewrote it as "The Frost Giant's Daughter", but still botched to find a market. In conclusion, he submitted the original Amra chronicle to The Fantasy Fan, a non-paying fanzine (or whatever they were called back then), which published it as "Gods of the North". An "edited" version of the Conan story ultimately saw print in 1953, and then, finally, Howard's own version of "The Frost Giant's Daughter" was in print in 1976 in Donald Grant's deluxe hardcover collection of Conan stories. Alas, that means the version here is the edited one.
