Illustration Friday - "Heavy"

This week Illustration Friday had a kind of appropriate theme for me. HEAVY... I'd been drawing this guy all week as part of my Taormina project.
He's supposed to weigh several hundred pounds... if you take a journey over to The Adventures Of Taormina you'll be able to see this guy in his full glory and read about the peril he represents for our foxy heroine!


I hope you will enjoy the brief tale I have put together... there will be more episodes in the coming weeks!

Love your interpretations of classic characters and your own fantastic creations. This (and your Taormina site) demonstrate such amazing art work and story telling :)

Great pose and facial expression Kevin. The anatomy of the back doesn't work quite as well as the face IMHO, but I love the slime dripping from him though.
