Oh, and you're not mistaken... the punchlines are cheesy. And once again I find myself approaching the frightening territory of the "Furry" (if you don't know what that is I suggest a google search then a cleansing of the eyes and brain). I suppose it's inevitable when you attempt to "hunkify" fictional characters. I even gave the Wolfman a tail for an upcoming joke.
Frankie's pose is loosely based on one of my favourite sculptures, Bernini's David. Even though I didn't copy it I love the look of determination on David's sculpted face.
Y'know, so far the hardest Universal Monster to "hunkify" is also my favourite -- The Creature from the Black Lagoon! He's a fish man! That's not really all that sexy. Not to me, at any rate. The easiest one to do is the Invisible Man!
And wait till you see Igor!

This is a newly inked version of an old drawing I had lying around. I tried a new chest hair technique (which I think is a "brush" in Photoshop now;) and drew armpit hair for, maybe, the first time. It's only subtle there. The problem I always had with drawing armpit hair is that when it's there it's all I notice about a drawing. Don't analyze why, that's not important. But it is why I haven't done it in the past.
Now that that's cleared up let's discuss how hot torn jeans are. And how cowboy boots are both totally sexy and yet so dorky at the same time. Maybe it's their dorkiness that makes them sexy.

Eventually I'd love to do a sweaty sword and sorcery epic with all the cliche Barbarian stuff. As a kid I watched all those terrible Conan rip-offs like Yor The Hunter From the Future, Beastmaster, Hercules, Krull, Deathstalker, the tv series Wizards and Warriors (which had what I thought were cool drawings before and after commercial breaks leading into and out of the live-action).
Not really a barbarian movie but awesome nonetheless was the He-Man movie. I read once that the director thought of the movie as an adaptation of Jack Kirby's Fourth World.

Oh, I love Frank Frazetta's artwork. I thought when I came up with this image that I would end up swiping a Frazetta piece whole hog...but as it turns out I was conglomerating a bunch of Fritz paintings in with a bunch of his black and white stuff...in the end I used the chest harness thing from a John Carter of Mars painting (I think) and the delicate, beautiful, ornamental designy-ness of his space clothing. Plus the pose is totally cliche Spaceman/Barbarian with slave-girl/alien chick. And then I inked it with a ham fist and erased any chance that Frazetta comparisons would be drawn!

I still love martinis, just not the lychee. (I've got a whole bottle of Soho Liqueur for anyone who wants it.)

Two posts in one day...but I was just so happy with the way this guy turned out! In my old neighbourhood there was constant roofing work being done. I have no idea why that was. Sometimes I'd run two or three errands in a day depending on how good looking I thought the guys might be just so that I could walk past the work site. I suffer from bad vision so more than likely they were best viewed from such a distance lest I shatter my delusions.
