A sailors life is a life for me

Heres a new image which was mostly inspired by the character design of Popeye or mostly his bulging fore arms. The character design of Popeye is an interesting one, he is probably the only character that I have seen where they have used large fore arms against the pole like biceps. 

On another note, I am planning on updating the work on my website soon. I prefer doing hearty updates so this will include a lot of new work both self promotional and Commissioned pieces. I don't know when the ETA will be but more likely to be in a few months time.

Target Practice

I initially started this image with the intensions of creating a very muscular indian behind possibly a small indian chief (might still make another image based on that concept) but after cutting out the shape of the head, it seemed to better suit that of a child and so i developed it further with the 'william tell' esque idea of the apple on top.

As for the background, the idea of the tepees, trees, etc in the background was already set but at first i was going to keep most of the back ground white. further down the line though, after adding the stream it seemed better to add a nice neutral colour to help bring out the nice vibrant colours in the character in the foreground.
