Is his white hair and change in armour the result of holding the Spear?

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!

So anyway, feel free to ignore me.

Apologetically,

Yeah, I'd forgotten the Conan one (lord knows there are a LOT of throned-king pics); it's the pale hair and spear-like weapon that make me think of Aquaman.

(I started to call it a polearm, and then realized I wasn't sure if you'd heard that obscure a term--or even whether Google Translate would know it.)

ANYway. It's a great pic, and as I said, I doubt it'd be a problem even if a few other readers remembered the Aquaman pic; it's a mild resemblance rather than a close cousin.

Your ardent fan, kinda missing your silly daily sketches now that you're busy on other work,

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!

Now if I could just stop seeing this as Aquaman in a bad mood....

(Yeah, okay; so I'm looking back through all your art here. So sue me.)

Your fan, as always,
