Kirby's Inhumans - Black Bolt

Haven't done a Jack Kirby tribute in quite a while, so here goes..
This is my seventeenth tribute piece, a 1024 x 768 Wallpaper of Kirby's Inhuman King, The Black Bolt done by yours truly...

Wikipedia info on Black Bolt:
Black Bolt (Blackagar Boltagon) is a fictional character that appears in the Marvel Universe and king of the offshoot of humanity known as the Inhumans. Black Bolt was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Fantastic Four vol. 1, #45.
Black Bolt is the son of two formerly pre-eminent Inhumans — Agon , head of the ruling Council of Genetics, and Rynda, director of the Prenatal Care Center. In accordance with Inhuman standard practice, Black Bolt is subjected to the mutagenic Terrigen Mist while still an embryo. As an infant, he demonstrates the ability to manipulate energy, particularly the ability to generate quasi-sonic energy through his voice. To protect the community, Black Bolt is placed inside a sound-proofed chamber and given an energy-harnessing suit. Agon then tutors his son in how to control his powers, until permitted to re-enter society as a young man - having vowed never to speak. His younger brother Maximus attacks Black Bolt upon his release from confinement, in an attempt to prove that Black Bolt cannot control his sonic powers.
