Quick Note: New Year, New Header

I finally updated the header for 2015.  This is the 9th banner I've made so far for the blog.  I wanted to keep the tropical theme going and make it a bit less crowded to open up the area more.

Billy Cade vs Superman [YouTube Wrestling Match]

While working on After Hours (which is coming along well and is on track to release sometime this month), I decided to open my new copy of WWE 2K14 and give it a look to see how different it was compared to the 2013 edition.  A while later, I had a few original and a couple of fan characters made, and I finally came up with a new match and mini story to post to YT.

You can check out the match here and also the completely different alternate outcome here!  I also have some other matches which can all be viewed at my channel.

Billy Cade has been in and out of (mostly in) juvenile hall most of his life.  On the run from the law for several serious crimes, the 24-year-old punk was finally nabbed by Superman while attempting to rob a jewelry store.

A charismatic and cocky young man, Billy convinced Superman to fight him in a pro wrestling match for a full pardon of his crimes.  The Man of Steel took an interest in trying to turn the criminal-in-the-making's life around before it was too late.  Should he lose, the Mohawk-haired punk agreed to obey whatever Superman ordered of him.  But should he win... Superman had to completely submit to the aggressive new wrestler named Punk Rage.

To make the match more even, the all-American superhero agreed to wear a kryptonite cock ring, effectively making him no stronger than a normal Earth muscleman.

The high-stakes fight was on!

[Gift Art] Super Macho Man!

By some cosmic accident, I won a random drawing by the super-talented Unknown Wolf and I was allowed to pick someone for him to draw.  I chose the studly Super Macho Man from Nintendo's Punch-Out!! series. :D

Even though he was unfamiliar with the series and the character, I really loved the way he depicted the narcissistic, musclebound boxer, capturing him just as he is!

Release the bogus!

Ax Battler [2013 Unpublished WIP]

Golden Axe is one of my old favorites from my childhood.  Ax Battler is a studly barbarian on a quest to destroy the evil Death Adder and prevent him from conquering the world with the power of the Golden Axe.

It was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at a model of Ax, but I just didn't think what I made was good enough to attempt anything with, so I kept him in one of my many art folders for later on.  This was early in 2013.  A while later, after I had learned some new techniques in lighting, I went back and refreshed his model a little and version 2 is what he looked like after.

I'm still not very happy with it.  I made the belt from scratch and the necklace and diamond spikes on his boots are mine, also.  I had planned on making Death Adder's helmet, but my skills aren't quite at that point yet so he remains uncreated for now.

I'll almost assuredly return to the raven-haired stud at some point in the future, but for now, I just wanted to share him with you guys.

After Hours (Sneak Peek)

I've been a little lax on developing this story over the past week or so, only writing a paragraph or two when the mood struck.  I've gotten back into it and have made a couple of new renders that take place in the very beginning of the story.

This is Office Ronnie working out at the gym he co-owns with his pal from high school, Frank.  It's late at night, but he's there for a while longer, building his body before he has to go out on patrol with his partner, Ken.

I'll keep at it and hopefully have After Hours up on the blog for you to enjoy sometime this month!

Happy 2015!

2014 is just about done and we're rocketing fast now to the new year!  I'm spending my night here with you guys and watching the New York ball drop on TV like my usual tradition.  I'm hoping for a better year for all of us.

Also, I wanted to announce some new permanent price reductions on my PDFs!  Just about everything is getting a meaty cut for 2015.

You can check out my Lulu Spotlight here or my Selz shop here.  Thanks so much for your support!  I always appreciate it!

Happy 2015, everyone!  Onward!

Happy Holidays! + A Sneak Peek

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays from Barbaric Brawn.  I hope that your holiday season has been going well and that your new year will be even better.

I also wanted to send a note of thanks to everyone who picked up a copy of Hercules vs Sergios on PDF.  Your support really means a lot to me and it helps to fund new projects and keep the site ad-and-subscription-free!  I hope that you find it worth every penny -- I always strive to make that true for every comic I produce.

Speaking of new projects, I have a couple of teaser works-in-progress to share with you for now.  This is a story based on an idea discussed between reader Sharlin and myself about two Marines working out and wrestling in a gym.  This gym is co-owned by my original character Officer Ronnie and frequented by two new original ebony studs, Nathan and Deshaun.

I'll have more info on this project early 2015.  Take care, everyone, and stay safe and warm this December.  Unless you happen to live in Australia, New Zealand, or the like... in which case, you guys should keep clothed in what Nathan and Deshaun are wearing as frequently as you like. :D

Hercules vs Sergios PDF

The total remake of one of my earlier stories, Hercules vs Sergios, is now complete and ready for sale!

This time, I did something a little differently than before when I add a new PDF to my store.  I've also created a 16:9 widescreen version in addition to the standard 9:7 ratio.  Both are exactly the same story with the same number of pages and the same content.  The only difference is the ratio of the image.

I was able to get the Widescreen Edition for sale on Lulu for you guys who are unable to purchase it through my Selz storefront!

This remake of the story includes the alternate ending from before and the story has been refined and beefed up in various ways.  There are more panels now, some bonus images not seen in the original, and it's an all-around better experience.

I hope you guys enjoy this remake of Hercules vs Sergios!  Thank you as always!

1,000,000 Hits

Wow.  While I was working at getting the remake of Hercules vs Sergios done, the 1,000,000th page view count came and went!  I can't believe I've already hit a million views.  Thank you guys so much for hitting that milestone for me.  It feels pretty surreal, especially on the cusp of the new year.

I remember back when I started Barbaric Brawn and was only getting about 25-50 views a day.  When that number crawled up to 200 a day I was ecstatic -- like, over the moon happy.  Now it's a little over a thousand views a day and I wanted to say that it's thanks to you guys that I have the drive to keep writing and creating.

All my best,

In Hercules' Arms (WIP)

The remake of Hercules vs Sergios is coming along swiftly.  I'm aiming for a release of before Christmas at the rate it's going.  We'll see how it turns out. :D

In this panel (in what will be page 68), Sergios and Hercules have been fighting for a while and have built up a pretty good sweat under the sun at the younger buck's campsite.  Hercules has gotten the brown-haired stud in his crushing bearhug and refuses to let go!
