I first read the original Tarzan book when I was a kid of 12... still love the character today and always wanted to paint him... so I did. Poor impulse control I guess.

Thanks! Jungle king here chose this exact spot just for that lighting... he's a sucker for a dramatic entrance.

Jungle King here is jealous.... he never got a phoenix. Sure the panther is good company, but it can't burst into flames when you need to start a fire on those cold nights can it!

This reminds me of the character John Clayton (Tarzan), played by Christopher Lambert in "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes"

Hi. What a great piece of art. Beyond  the amazing body and style, what struck me was the light. It may be the way you handle it, or just your own vision (I've since the same kind of exactness on your other works), but this is really touching and having an impact on me. Cheers.

Thanks! Clearly all that running around, wrestling Apes and chasing tigers has kept him in good shape :D
