Orko by TJ Dietsch

Hey gang, TJ Dietsch of UnitedMonkee here. I've been blown away by Zach and Ben's reinterpretations of Orko and decided to keep the ball rolling by drawing him as a cross between one of his burly Masters of the Universe brethren (hence the furry briefs) and one of the Spartans from 300 (the DVD cover of which I clearly swiped the pose and sword from). The idea of his furry drawers ending with no legs and his tunic acting more as a cape in this pose really tickled me. And speaking of pastels, this is the first time I can remember coloring something with pencils in ages. I've tried using makers, but they streak, pool and smudge more than I like. Well anyway, here it is. I sure wouldn't mess with him.

Neat idea, nicely done. I dig that sword too. I suck at weapons.

Gah! The image isn't showing up for me. I hate my computer.

Zach, you gotta see it, you inspired it via email! Maybe it's a browser thing, do you use Safari, Firefox, something else? I haven't had a problem using Firefox.

Rad TJ! He looks like a badass Arabian-Genie-Barbarian. Matter of fact that should totally be your pitch to a TV exec. "We're bringing 'badass Arabian-Genie-Barbarians' back to Saturday mornings, Mr. TV Executive."

Man, I hope those are fuzzy panties amd not just a serious case of Orko peach fuzz. And how can I get abs like that? (Keeping my legs, preferably.)

Zach Oat said...

Nice! I didn't even know you could WEAR a loincloth if you didn't have legs. It's not something I ever thought about.

Elastic, duh. Ooh, or magic!
