Cool art!! That nipple torture is hilarious and gruesome. The best kind!

I Love the painting with Chesteclese and his horse hanging by their nipples.
The dark colors look great and each color compliments the others giving the scene edge.
I've been trying to do paintings like that in my own cartoons, they never come out as nice.

Alright Jim, I know you've gotten every compliment in the book about what makes your drawings so unique and incredible - people use words like "solid", "meaty", "manly", "epic", etc....but here's one you may not have heard: I just realized that whenever I look at your drawings -ESPECIALLY the Chestaclese ones - and I shift in my chair or lift my arms a little bit....my pecs and biceps actually feel heavier and more toned for a second. Really. No, seriously. I'm not just trying to be funny or original here - THIS IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS.

Zoran maybe this a new way to get a workout. Interesting concept. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!
Kevin I need help the - comic is not quite done. I just need a space to work in. My hotel room is small and no drawing table.
Thanks for all the manly or (womanly) comments.
Joshua, If you have never seen "A Man Called Horse" with Richard Harris, that is what inspired the nipple scene. It is a good movie if memory serves.

Ryan, study some of the great art from old Disney cartoons and the great children's book art by Tenngren, Kay Neilsen, and others. Also some classic paintings from the past, and Frank Frazetta. You no doubt have study some of these but keep doing it. I spent many hours and years copying my favorite artists.
