Big Tarzan (Colored) by kuabci Big Tarzan (Colored) by kuabci
Photoshop
January 2013

After I started my Jane painting ([link]) I decided I should do a companion piece of Tarzan. I have often said that skin and hair are much harder to paint than clothes, and then here I sat painting a character that's almost completely skin and hair. o.O I could probably have spent forever working on this one, but I decided to be satisfied and call it done, even though there are still some issues with it (not least of which are some proportion/perspective problems with the original sketch, but ah well). I still like it overall, it has a nice feeling and movement to it. Tarzan is such a dude.

Original sketch here: [link]

I really like the drawing.  Nice movement and flow and the background colour serves the composition well. Cool. :)

There really is a nice movement and flow in this composition. You can feel the weight of the figure and the tension in the vine. Very nicely done!

Thank you! It's always a challenge to paint skin convincingly, so that's great to hear.

I really like this, especially the background...it's simple, but less is more in this case :D

That's nice to hear, I did think about adding more by way of foliage and stuff, but then I decided to simplify, so he would match the Jane piece better, and so as not to distract too much from the character himself. Thank you!
