that guys seems to be in a delicate situation!
I like the point of view and the perspective.

Very nice job of coloring this drawing. Love the highlight coming from below. Really adds a lot of depth to the image. You just keep getting better and better!

What a spectacular colouring job. I love your black and white work, and I completely agree with someone who commented elsewhere that your images only take on more energy when you see the rough spots where the the struggle in the image's creation becomes evident. It is rare that an artist in your idiom really impresses me by adding colour, for it rarely adds much dimension and limits the viewer's imagination. This is one of those rare cases of mastery that truly enhances the work. Well done.

Leeches or slugs, but, not eels. Too short for eels. Still hot!

@Wake: Thanks! I'm generally much more comfortable using pencil and paper--and now that I've learned how to color an image without having to ink it first, I doubt I'll ever ink another paper drawing. Of course, that assumes I'll ever return to doing paper drawings, now that I have a Cintiq. I'm sure as digital technology improves, we'll see the ability to produce art that captures the same textured feeling of pencil on paper.

What's good gets even better. Great job Kalabro! The under lighting on the Tarzan's ripped physique makes it all the hotter. Makes me wonder how the apeman would look fully submerged. Lit by the eerie phosphorescent glow of the slime and struggling against his bonds while enduring an invasive onslaught of bloodsucking slugs.

So hot...

Which Cintiq do you have? I have the Intuos 4 Large, and have to regain my skills after 30+ years of disuse.

Kalabro said...

@Sarissi: I have the Cintiq 12". As it serves as a dual monitor and you can draw directly on it, it really speeds up my coloring time.

Sarissi said...

The 12WX? I had to go for the Intuos tablet that I mentioned above due to budget constraints. I might be getting an Acer 18.4" Core i7 notebook. You have made the transition from traditional to digital media very well indeed.

I don't know if you take requests, but anyway...I'd love to see your Tarzan bound securely, with his poor tortured balls tied to a two-wheeled cart, naked, his body bruised and wounded from abuse, having to use his formidable muscles to tow around a brutal, whip wielding master in the baking sun, the pain of the torture to his sensitive organs, which are stretched to endurance by the weight of the cart, written across his face...

I am new to your blog. What an outstanding artist you are. The scene of Tarzan is so beautifully sketched and inked. It's also highly erotic in an unusual way.

I wish I could buy this as a painting. Keep up the great work!

Could you dip him again..and add more leeches all over his physique??
