He's Just A Simple Caveman by markwelser He's Just A Simple Caveman by markwelser
Another in a series of messed up Hanna-Barbera cartoons for rock flyers. Decided to post this one without all the pesky show info, background and tinted colors.

Always loved Captain Caveman and wanted to do something like this for a while.

Dig it.

"Kill it! Kill it with Fire!" JK I wouldn't have that reaction, but there are many people that would. GREAT WORK!

Interesting! I've heard people say this reminds them of Tim Sale, Jack Kirby, Erik Larsen and now Frank Miller! I'm not complaining about any of those. Thanks a lot!

If you think of it, all of those artists have similarities in style (of course, originating with Kirby)

Yup! Everything always comes back to Jack! I think anyone interested in drawing comics is inspired by him even if they don't know it!

So very awesome! It only needs a trio of super sleuth ladies fawning over him in the background.

Yeah, this was initially done for a flyer and I didn't have much time to put it all together. I guess I could revisit this with a proper background someday. Thanks!

Thanks! It's funny that I can't even see the Kirby influences anymore but I know they're in there pretty good.

You're welcome! It's mostly in the shape of the fingers/toes, the details of the club, and your shadows. It's all very Kirby, but not to the point where I'm thinking you ripped straight from him. In short, it's perfect.

markwelser Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011
Yeah, I get it--I've spent over a year drawing things specifically to look like Jack drew them so it's no surprise that some of his stuff is spilling over into my other work. Also, I've been influenced by Erik Larsen for many, many years and he's got a very Kirby-inspired style himself. It all just comes back to Jack, I guess.

Ah yes, having said that, I can definitely see Mr Larsen in there, most notably in the posture. You're right -- it all comes back to Kirby, in the end.
