Yeah, there's a classic cover shot of Aquaman enthroned - maybe '80s or so? - that I used to have, but I've just spent the better part of an hour trying to hunt it down online and had no luck.
Since Aqm's got long blond hair and holds a trident, and sat in a similar pose on a throne--I forget if the back was shell-shaped or just generally sea-themed--it looks similar enough to make me blink, but not enough to be either ripoff or "tribute" enough to be a problem.
If you happen to know anyone who remembers lots of DC covers of that general era, you can always check with him; unfortunately, none of my current friends are real DC fans, and they're a little too young as well. Aaargh!
I had seen this cover and was so inspired by it! And now i find the rest of your work! Amazing! I'm a body painter and I've been waiting forever to attempt recreating this character in the flesh. I finally found the perfect model and we'll be giving it a go at IMATS Pasadena in january! I hope that i can do the image justice!
This composition is sinfully delicious, executed to perfection both in form and composition. Nary a detail is spared--the throne is magnificent, and the master upon it both radiate dark intent. Amazing.
oh fuck!!!!!! *_* jackieeeee!!! I have the comic where this pic appears!!! I loved it, it was one of my favourites. Actually itīs my favourite XDDDD but I canīt believe I had found this on DA....are you really the author? (sorry por tha stupid question U_U)
Wow! you truly set the standard for artist, this is just remarkable. I like how the green really stands out against the darks, it gives me this creepy feeling and also allows my imagination to create the rest of that room.
