Sunshine Day!

This guy was tough, let me tell you. I drew him first with a lot less clothing...but the anatomy was awkward. I tried to fix him a few times but in the end the best solution was to use clothing to hide the mistakes (hopefully their hidden). I actually really like the t-shirted version more. I think it's more colourful.
I know how much you guys like skin so I'll post 'em both and let you judge for youselves whether the addition of clothing was a good thing

Yee haww!

When I draw I like to listen to music that fits the image on which I am working. Usually that means pulling out a few soundtracks from movies with a similar theme (last post's barbarian was inked to the Conan soundtrack, and a collection of old movie music called Now Playing). This cowboy called for a different sort of music. Thanks to Mr. Paul Dini I was introduced to Bob Wills and the song Roly Poly which I stuck in the player alongside Loretta Lynn. I capped off the music selection with a heaping helping of my personal favourite country music star Miss Dolly Parton. Boy howdy, I love Dolly! :)

I think the background to this one would have looked more natural as a brown or tan. But there was so much brown in the costume and lasso that I went with blue. I have yet to go through all of the finished pieces to this ongoing theme but I think so far blue is the most common background colour.

Y'all come back now!

Viking! Hammer!

This one is one of my personal favourites in the continuing theme. Mainly because I love John Buscema's Conan artwork which I looked through when drawing this. Also because I inked with a brush instead of the Pitt pen (whish is how all the rest were inked). This one needed to be brush inked because I wanted more roughness and texture in the fur and muscles (read that as mus-Kulls, like how Popeye would say it). I especially like how the Hammer looks...imagine getting cracked on the noggin' with that hefty piece of stone? This guy is truly a God of War! ;)

This was a tough one. When I set out to draw the s**** of the ****** I didn't want to draw anything anthropomorphic. My own little rule proved challenging when tackling this I opted to ignore it. And why not! I used to love drawing mer-people when I was a kid. Clash of the Titans was (and still is) one of my favourite movies and this guy's lower half reminds me of the Kraken. I also used to watch the Hercules cartoon and drew a lot of centaurs and satyrs. I suppose this guy could have ended up half goat...

All right...this is THE closest to nudity you're probably gonna see on this blog! I know that more of Adam's bits and pieces should be visible but you won't see it here so please don't ask. :)
So this is image number 2 in the continuing theme. I think everyone already knows but I appreciate the fun of prolonging the "mystery". As a hint...this is Adam before the fall. That means he still a virgin!

More to come!
