Namor by Patrick Fillion

Good evening my friends…

Well, I didn’t get around to completing an issue of Boytoons today…but that is because I have been working on this little gift for you guys: My own version of Namor. I call it “IMPERIUS EREX”! HA! HA! HA!

I opted for a more stylized coloring technique for this one. I find it lends a touch of elegance to the image, and feels very poster-ish! Well in any case, I hope you will all like him.

My friend Robert Guttke pointed out that he never understood the point of Namor’s little green shorts… and that’s a good point! I know if I was the monarch of an undersea kingdom I’d be skinny dippin’ all day long! Well, I figured Namor SHOULD do the same!

Sweet dreams, my friends! I’ll see you all tomorrow!

  1. Really great work again. The whole picture’s just perfect, and if it weren’t for the whole all-ages thing (and annoying fanboys that go up in arms if guys show any flesh) a guy like Namor really would just let it hang loose all the time. Not like he’s got any reason to be modest or anything.

    Also, those fish are totally checking him out, lol!

  2. Hey Patrick,

    As always, Beautiful.

    And the title speaks for itself.

    You have now made it hard (no pun intended) for me to go to the beach this summer, I’m going to be comparing Sydney Lifesavers to Namor!

    Patrick, you have corrupted my world!

    Licks & Chews!

  3. MJR Charlie says

    Wow, you’ve done it again Patrick, you’ve managed to convert Namor, often known for being slightly uptight, into a ‘free spirit’ lol.
    Very hot stuff! Not planning on doing one of Colossus are you?

  4. That’s just EERIE!

    I was thinking to myself, “What Marvel Universe character would I want to see Patrick tackle?” Although he wasn’t one of my personal favorite characters (yet iconic), I was thinking that number 1 would have to be Namor, just because he was such an object of lust and that you would make a REALLY HOT Sub-Mariner.

    But keep in mind Sue’s got Mr. Fantastic in the sack. LOL.

  5. Good morning Patrick,

    thank You very, very much for that beautiful work. Again, it’s one of my favorite characters in the Marvel-Universe and I always thought it might be cool to see Namor drawn totally in the nude =D

    I remember one particular issue in which Namor and his (female) cousin Namorita visit a street-party and she refuses to cover up her legs because “a lifetime of swimming has made mine […] to die for.”
    It’s clear to see the same goes for Namor, too. =D =D


  6. Charvolth says

    Great illustration, I’ve never been one for the Marvel Universe, but I thought the golden age version of the Sub-Mariner was a cool concept, an anti-hero, and eco-terrorist in the 1930’s, in a way, veryahead of their time, but they eased up on that approach over the years.
    Besides I liked his minimalist look, just the green briefs, and a muscular physique.

  7. TJ, Manny, Charlie, Gymtwin, Phrog and Charvolth… You guys, I am really touched by your comments! :o)

    You know, you have given me the opportunity here to create illustrations for the fun of drawing them, and for the fun of sharing them with you! Before this Blog, I used to think it was maybe a waste of time drawing my version of MOTU or Marvel characters because I could not use them for my Class Comics work… But in this Blog I have found a great reason and outlet for those drawings…and in you guys, some great pals to share them with! Thanks so much to all of you!

    And oh yes…time permitting, there will be more Marvel, MOTU and other POP culture Boytoons to come!

    Fraser and I think that what makes these characters so fun for me to draw is that they aren’t Boytoons we are used to seeing in the buff! I had a blast drawing him and I’m thrilled you all liked my Namor!

    Have a wonderful Saturday, my friends!

    PS — Charlie…I am definitely keeping the Colossus suggestion in mind! ;)

    PPS — Gymtwin… I ADORE Mr. Fantastic… If I were Sue, I would have had a really hard time choosing! Maybe a Mr. Fantastic pic is in order for the future…Hmmm, the stuff I could do with that one! HA! HA! HA!

  8. Do it!
    Do it!
    Do it!

    (Colossus also!)


  9. Omigod! Daily doses of Patrick. My prayers have been answered!

    Seriously behind in catching up with all the goodness on your bountiful blog, but I just had to give a yelp over the Namor and Stratos images you’ve been so kind to burn into my retinas. All I can say is MORE, PLEASE!!!

    Definitely want to see your talented hand on Colossus and Mr. Fantastic (love a well-endowed geek), but don’t stop there! More Eternians like He-Man, Zodak and Tri-Cocks (um, Tri-Klops). How about Duke and Flint (in his hot little beret) from G.I.JOE? Han and Luke? Flash and Baron (née Sam Jones and Timothy Dalton)? Supes? Bats? Green Lantern? (Hal Jordon fills a mean pair of tights). And about a million more that come to mind…

    …oh, and Aragorn, Boromir and the mighty Legolas! They deserve a mention in their own paragraph! Talk about your elfin magic…

    I think you’re definitely on to something, mon ami. Keep up the jaw-dropping (aching?) work!

  10. Hiya Gymtwyn and Ichabod!

    Thanks for your encouragement, guys! HA! HA! HA! I really appreciate your enthusiasm and I will certainly whip up more Pop Culture boys in the near future…but don’t forget…I still have a Comics company to run! HA! HA! HA! So I should probably work on that stuff first and foremost…but I will certainly keep your suggestions in my mind for when next the muse decides to call! So stay tooned… you never know what I will end up posting here!

    And hey, Ichabod… welcome to my little Blog! Thanks so much for your great comment!
    Have a great day, boys!
    Patrick XOXOX

    Sweet! Glad I found this blog, Patrick, been a big fan of your art and am loving these Pop Culture boys! Any chance of seeing some Thundercats show up some time soon? Lord knows Panthro and his S&M leather outfit fit the mark already.;)

    Oh and sad to say Namor wears a full set of clothes on land and is still a big jerk. Off. >:)

  12. Hiya Junglekid…

    Great of you to stop by, and I really appreciate your comment. It’s cool to hear that people are enjoying the “Pop Culture” boys done my way. I will certainly have to keep the Thundercats in the back of my mind for possible future illustrations. You are not the only one who has made the request! They seem pretty popular. LOL!!!

    Thanks again for taking the time to write! You can be sure Namor will never be overdressed on this blog! HA! HA! HA!

    Hugz + Kisses

  13. I love Namor…
    So vewry handsome in the nude.
