Gym Bunny Posedown: Bonus Animations

I was looking at my new short image story, Gym Bunny Posedown, earlier tonight.  I liked the idea of making Skylar's wish come true and had Jacob really flex those muscle buns in a couple of Flash animations.  These, combined, are close to 15 MB, so I'm hiding them behind a jump link below.

Update: Sorry!  I'm unable to host these SWF files anymore.

Gym Bunny Posedown

I had purchased this locker room model not too long ago and had been itching to do something with it since then.  I have a fondness for airheaded gym boys flexing and calling each other 'bro' and 'dude', so that's the first thing I went for.  Here's Gym Bunny Posedown: a short, sweet muscle love image story for you guys!

When Skylar (in yellow) came into the gym one hot summer day, Jacob (in pink) fell head-over-heels in love.

Skylar, a prolific porn star, had just moved to Muscle City and was eager to find work as a model while he pursued his new career in professional bodybuilding.  Jacob, normally not shy around newcomers, was suddenly struck with a pair of weak knees as he fled from contact with the straight stud.  He was terrified that he'd scare the beautiful bodybuilder away from the gym with his gawking.

Two weeks (and several wet dreams) later, Jacob finally got up the nerve to introduce himself to Skylar.  Hatching up a scheme to ease his nerves, the muscleboy waited until Skylar had entered the locker room to pounce.

Jacob burst into the locker room only to find Skylar standing there in his tight yellow posers, flexing at the mirror.  Jacob, his bulging pink strap bouncing with his every step, knew that this was how he would start the lines of communication.  The power of posing would solve his dilemma!

Jacob soon finds out that Skylar had been staring at him for some time, too...

Quick Note: Brr...

Last night at about 10:00, the power went out here and stayed out until today (around 11:00 AM).  There was (still is?) a wintry storm going on in the southeast US and it's extremely cold out -- for Florida, anyhow.

It's been a long time since I've seen blankets of frost and rows of icicles around here.  Brr.

I spent some of last night scratching down notes and paragraphs (on paper by lantern light!) for the Conan vs Thul'rog story, so the downtime didn't set me back too much.

I don't know how you northern dudes do it every year.  I really don't!

Battle for the Gods: Promo

And now, a very special message from the Ogre King...

"While Lucky Stallion gets everything set up here, I thought I would take a moment to tell you little humans what's been on my mind.

You see, I'm not just an ogre.  I'm the king of the ogres.  But that doesn't mean that I'm incapable of love.  I guess what I'm trying to say is... I'm complicated.

Oh, and one more thing.

Superman vs VoodooMaster (Fan Art)

VoodooMaster is an original character of Jungle King Kazar (John Savage).  One of his many awesome stories at his old blog, Rants Roids n Rasslin, involved the muscular African god and powerful master of black magic.

Tasked by a wealthy incarcerated criminal to wrestle the Man of Steel in a freedom challenge, VoodooMaster also fights Superman for the ancient Rak-As-Tar -- a ritual that the people of Krypton and Nubaron used to settle disputes.

Last night, I was looking at the images I saved from his old blog and wanted to recreate one of the panels.  Using the bearhug poses from The Last Battle: Krypton vs Apokolips, I made a 3D version of VoodooMaster and put them in the wrestling ring.

After polishing it up a bit, I sent it to him this morning as fan art and he gave me permission to repost it here for you guys.

You can check out JKK's art at his DeviantArt account here.  There are a couple of images of VoodooMaster in his gallery right now, including the cover art of the follow-up versus Thor.

The Last Battle: Krypton vs Apokolips

It's done!  My first fully-fleshed-out Superman story.  Some of you might recognize the title of this one as belonging to my orcs vs men story.  When I remake that in the future, I'll likely give it the same name with a new subtitle.

I spent a bit more time on this one, teaching myself how to mimic the bubbles used in modern comics.  Either I have no idea how to search for it or there is a total lack of info about how to recreate the look!  I think I did a pretty alright job with that in the end.

I took another couple of hours rendering an animation (in Shockwave Flash format) of a rotation of the last panel.  It's a bit of a big file, but by the time you reach the end of the story, it should be loaded and playing.

Here's The Last Battle: Krypton vs Apokolips!

Torn Costume

Hey, guys.  I'm making good strides with the new Superman vs Darkseid story, and I wanted to post this picture of Superman's torn costume that happens during the fight.  Spoilers, I know, but with a chest like that, how can I not show it off now?!

Apokolips, where the majority of this story takes place, was really interesting to craft.  I'm basically done with it and it looks like a great place for such a battle to happen.

The text part of the story is coming along well.  I'm referring to a few different comics and some wiki sites to make sure some of my story bits and facts are right -- though an awful lot of the stuff I do as an artist takes great liberties with the source material.  I'm sure it'll all be fine in the end, though.

Have a great Friday and weekend, guys.  I'll see you again soon,
-Lucky Stallion

Darkseid v2

I just got done with version 2 of my Darkseid model.  I've decided to go ahead with the Superman story first and work on the Conan tale right after this one is done.

I modeled Darkseid's helmet and belt myself and rigged them with little difficulty.  After that, I painted on his costume and gave him new boots and trunks.  Except for a skin texture refresh, he's pretty much the same studly tyrant as before.

I have a vague idea of what the story will be about already, but it and the scene here are subject to change before it's all done.

Thanks, guys, for your input and interest!  Keep a look out sometime this month for this story!

Beach Fighter

And the summery theme continues!  Agh!  Somebody save me from its evil, warm, sandy, sunny clutches!

I was fooling around with Guile's model a little tonight and had the idea to put the colonel in a pink thong and put him in a chair on the beach.  I think this is the last beach thing I do... for now.  For now.

I was wondering if you guys wanted another Superman story, maybe one involving Darkseid in space?  I was also recently thinking of doing a full story version of Conan and Ogre King.

If you guys have any preferences, I'd love to hear what you think!

Rematch: Tarzan vs Jabari

Rematch: Tarzan vs Jabari takes place on a beach on the outskirts of the jungle.  Before I started work on this, I wanted to have a great location for these two studs to battle in.  It didn't take too long before inspiration hit.  My friend Art (Wildjuba/Cacentcst) has done some incredibly-hot Tarzan series that he shared over time on his old Yahoo groups.  The idea for this wrestling ring comes from his Tarzan Vs. Mandla set and the surrounding environment from a mix of his other sets: Hercules Vs. Nguna and the latter half of Tarzan Vs. Rhino.

In this direct sequel to The New Jungle King, Tarzan has been defeated and loses his title as jungle lord.  He's taken back to Mogu to face a dethroning ceremony by the native tribesmen.  Jabari, the new king of the jungle, takes pity on the white man and casts him out of Mogu.  Naked and ass aching, Tarzan flees into the quiet jungle to heal his wounds in peace.

But Tarzan soon learns that he isn't content with the way things turned out.  He wants a rematch to redeem himself and gain back his crown as king!  Tarzan challenges his greatest opponent to another fight in the ring!  Can Tarzan put the pieces of his shattered ego back together and somehow defeat the only man to ever conquer him?

Boys on the Beach

Okay, so this is really, really early in the year for something this summery, but a friend wanted to see the header's full version, and I figured it might help counteract some of the crazy snowstorms affecting some of you guys.  Well... maybe not that second part, but I can hope!

Four of my studs -- Tuskar, Kugo, Hercules, and Gorg -- are standing around on the beach and enjoying the warm rays of sun baking their backsides.  I think when these big boys get done showing off their bodies for each other, they'll pair off and wrestle around on the beach before settling down for some fun under the sun.
