BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #109 – On the Drawing Board!

Good morning, my friends…

Today I thought I might do an issue of BTM that is all about the art I’ve been up to in the past week or so. It’s safe to say I have been a busy boy (some things never change) but the past few days have been slightly different from the norm here at Class Comics in that my projects have been a bit more varied.

To begin with, I’ve been hard at work creating illustration for two fellow artists: the fantabulous JC Etheredge, creator of the wicked Anti-Heroes, and the amazing Iceman, who is famous for his naughty depictions of mainstream Boytoons.

For JC, I drew my interpretation of his very hot character, TAI the ninja himbo (as JC Calls him! ;). The irony is that I started working on this illustration some time ago, but every time I went to finish it, another artist would send JC their interpretation of the character! I didn’t want to come across as a copy cat – so I put the illustration off. HA! HA! HA! Well, finally I decided that it was time I just completed my version. So here he is at last!

I wanted to draw this image for JC, because as a fellow creator of erotic male comics, I find his work to be very inspiring and always exciting. Plus we’ve been friends for a while and this is just my way of saying “Thanks for beein’ you, dude!” LOL! Don’t forget to check out JC’s site and Blog. He’s SUPER prolific and is always adding new goodies!

Next up, I received an email from another dear friend and fellow artist: Iceman. I couldn’t be more proud to announce that he is about to release the very first PRINTED issue of MidnightMan, his own comic creation. Iceman asked if I’d be willing to do a pin-up of the character for the issue. Naturally, I could not resist.

I adore his work and I think it’s pretty exciting that he is putting out a printed version of his very own creation! Don’t get me wrong, I think his depictions of mainstream characters are scorching hot, but I really appreciate the fact that he has created MidnightMan and is making this über sexy character available for all us fans.

MidnightMan was loads of fun to draw. He’s very handsome and has quite a strong personality and sexiness about him. Equally important was his setting. He’s a male Tomb Raider amongst other things, and I wanted a backdrop that would feature that side of him.

So Iceman, I couldn’t be more proud of you, my friend! I can’t wait to get my greedy little hands on MidnightMan #1! I’m very pleased that I could take part in the project and I wish you all the success in the world! You totally deserve it.

Check out Iceman’s awesome website people! You’ll find details on the MidnightMan project as well as oodles and oodles of hot, raunchy Boytoons!

In the end, I think both of these images worked out nicely. I am always so nervous when I draw other people’s characters. I want so much to do them justice and I always find something to pick at when the illustration is done… but you know us artists – always out own worst critics! LOL!

Meanwhile, I have still had a lot of Class-related stuff to work on – most of which has revolved around Zahn in some manner.

Zahn #1 is featured on the cover of the March 2008 Previews Adult cover. This is of course fantastic, but I was faced with an important challenge: How to show Zahn off on the cover without showing off his…uhm…barbarian wang! LOL!

And then, Fraser pointed out that the answer was pretty obvious: “Draw Zahn with his belt and pouch covering up his naughties”. So that’s what I did… but Zahn all by himself didn’t seem to be quite enough for me.

I decided that I should draw a couple of villains form the book. Enter Lyrus and Selar, two of the dreaded Bird Men (who appear for all of 1 panel in the book!) from Zahn #1. These illustrations surprised me! I had SUCH fun drawing them and I think that is because when a character is partly monstrous, I am not so preoccupied with the sexiness of the image. I can just cut loose and have fun – which is what I did. I think they still worked out nice and sexy, but also have a nice “menacing” and “weird” tone to them!

But what of their dingles, you ask?

Well, leave it to me to put hours of work into elements of an image that end up being the size of thumbtacks on the finished image. LOL! Lyrus and Selar are on the Previews Adult cover with Zahn, but are very, very tiny. Their naughti
es have been hidden behind Zahn and his cloak, and they are both blurred slightly in order to appear in the distance. This was vital because left unblurred, they just looked like twwny weeny tweeties next to my sexy barbarian! No good!

Ah well… at least I get to show them off here and on the cover of today’s issue of BTM! I remind myself they were not for naught! ;) And since I like them so much, I’ll probably use them in future layouts etc…

Also on the drawing board this week, an up-coming Class comic called “Stip-Tease” which is not only a collection of all my 1-page strips to date, but includes new ones as well. I’ve recently completed one strip featuring DevilHound – remember him? The character I created 2 summers ago? To date had only written about in the adult section of my website. I figured it was time he had a comicbook-based appearance.

I’ve also been up to my neck in commissions, which I rarely do – ‘cause I rarely have the time – as well as Black Inches and Latin Inches drawings AND other Class Comics projects which I must for now, keep hush hush!

PHEW!

I think it’s safe to say that it has been a wee bit busier than usual… but in the end, I am truly a happy camper! All this stuff is just SOOOOO much fun to get to do and I am like a little piggy in the muck when my plate is full of cool art to create!

Enjoy, my friends! And thanks again for stopping by!

Much love,
Patrick XOXO

    Patrick,
    It’s so nice to see your art on your blog again! It’s been awhile ;)
    It’s the real reason I come here.
    While I’m not as good as you, you inspire me a great deal to say the least.
    Your image of Tai is simply stunning if that was my character I’d be super honored that you drew him.
    MidnightMan doesn’t do much for me but those sure are some nice big bull balls lol
    Congrats about Zahn That’s really great man! I’ve gotta ask though how’s that small little pouch hiding his massive member? Unless he’s tucking it ;)
    And now we come or is that cum? to my fave part of your post these bird men!! Lyrus and Selar Simply stunning designs and the fact that they have blue featherish hair is just so sexy to me.
    DevilHound is pretty cute I like the lil bit of hair you put on his body he sort of reminds me of Trent Reznor or something.
    I’d love to see the stages of your art work in a blog some time.
    Best Wishes and lots of love as always!
    -V.M.

  2. Gratz on the ‘Previews’ cover, and I am really looking forward to seeing Zahn in its entirety. Also, you have again done something cool in re-interpreting a creature of classical mythology.
    Good to see that you’re getting so much work, and look forward to seeing more.

  3. Congratulations Patrick! I know that I am one of many who waits with baited breath for every new work of art from your drawing board. I, like so many truly appreciate your efforts. One of the most prolific artists in the boy toons field and you still find the time to keep us up to speed via your blogs. Keep it up!

  4. Wow I can’t wait for Zahn to come out, it promises to be really good. I got a question did you base those hot sexy bird men after some harpies? My little cousin play whatever that card game is called and it has women that look like this guys expect their skin color is blue. Anyway I love DevilHound it been a while since we since that hottie. Take care. Lots of love and hugs.

  5. You *HAVE* been busy!
    LOL!
    Nothing less than expected or appreciated in all your creative juiciness! ;)
    Beautiful, beautiful work, Patrick!
    Both JC and Iceman are amazing talents in their own right, and I’m all giddy with your honoring them and their work with your own.
    Very nice, indeed.
    Looking forward to holding these books in my hands as well, Patrick
    –it goes without saying that you continue to be both a motivating and driving force of inspiration in my own work.

    Huggles,

    ~Z.

    Aw Paddy, your Tai rocks totally!!

    I’ve decided I’m going to call you Paddy from now on lol. For some reason my fingers don’t get on well with typing Patrick lmao.

    But yeah, back to Tai. You’ve done a great job, and whereas my attempt looks distinctly elven with a hint of Link from Zelda, yours subtly captures those distinguishing ears in your own style. And you’ve really captured that cocky masculinity. Cheeky boy.

    The birdmen are quite the achievement – but I have to say – they are BIRDmen, doesn’t quite do it for me lol. I bet its quite fun creating new ‘species’ and trynna make them sexy, but I don’t think I’ve got the guts to create ‘furry’-ish characters – I can’t even bring myself to post proper nudity (woos!!) haha!

    But I have to say the biggest achievement I have noticed on this post is Devilhound. Surprising because the previous image you drew didn’t appeal to me so much, but man what is it about this time that is just SO DAMN AWESOME!! He looks totally hot and dangerous – the stalker-y pose works wonders. He’s like a sexual predator and I love it :P

    Your work outshines so many others’ Paddy, you truly are an inspiration to me.

    Wabbit xx

    Great posting. MidnightMan is beautiful beautiful beautiful. Exactly nice. We’ll meat up with him, in our dreams.

    Awesome PAYLOAD man! So much art– where do I begin!? Well, ya know how I feel about your rendition of my baby! I posted a lil’ thanks on my own blog about that.

    I can’t wait for the release of MidnightMan! I’ve been a huge fan of Iceman’s work for years now and really respect his dedication to the genre. Although I LOVE whenever he releases a new webcomic, part of me is always like, “when’s he gonna release one for me to have and hold in my hot lil’ hands!?” haha. Looks like I’ll have to wait no longer. By the way, loving the heavy sac on your depiction of him, Patrick! Cute face too!

    That image for the cover of Adult Previews is great! Your penises are such an important part of your drawings so it’s interesting to see you churn out something beautiful and sexy without having to rel on the cocks. Just goes to show you’re one of the masters.

    THOSE HARPY GUYS ARE CREEPY!! Leave it to Patrick to make something that kinda creeps me out still super sexy! haha. I know what you mean about the monster-guys being kinda fun to draw though.

    Anyhoo– I guess I’ve written a long enough book here, buddy. Keep up the great work!

  10. Raul Guerra says

    Hey mate,…
    How are you doing Patrick?
    Thanks for the nice comment babe.

    I have to say I love so much those two winged guys!!!, they have such a nice combination of colours.
    I LOVE THEM.

    In fact I love anything that have to do with mythology!!!
    keep well man.
    …I like the new layout of your website as well!!!
    love
    Raúl Guerra

  11. I love the way you draw mean looking blonds, Flamer and Tai would make a hot couple.
    Also, You should draw characters with wings more often. These remind me of the Harpie Lady cards from the Yugioh! kids card game ( a guilty pleasure)

    much love as always, and keep up the good work. I wish I had your talent.
    CONGRATULATIONS ON THE COVERSHOT!!!

    Charvolth… Hey there, my friend. Great to hear from you! Glad you enjoyed the posting and the Bird Men / Harpy Men.

Hugz + Kisses! XOXO

    Vicky… Good to hear from you!!! :oD Glad you enjoyed the posting and are looking forward to Zahn!

Thanks again for stopping by! Much love! XOXO

    Z…always a pleasure to hear from you, dear friend! You are really too sweet! I’m so pleased you enjoyed my renditions of Tai and MidnightMan. I had a great time drawing them.

I can’t wait for you to see it as well! I just hope it will live up to people’s expectations! YIKES! HA! HA! HA! Thanks again for the wonderfully kind and sweet words! Lotsa luv to you! XOXO

    White Wabbit… It’s always a pleasure to read you, my friend…. but no more calling me PADDY, okay! I really do not enjoy it! LOL! ;) Meanwhile, I am really pleased you enjoyed my version of Tai and the rest of the art on this post. I actually thought your Tai was SUPERB! You really managed to do the character great justice and I loved how well you captured him in your own style too! There’s just something about him that makes you wanna draw him! LOL! Also, I am glad to hear that this image of Devilhound has given you a fresh look at the character. As I mentioned to Vaughn Michael earlier, I’ll have to see about making him more visible from now on! :o) Hugz + Kisses! XOXO

    Damian and Trent… You boys are so very sweet! Thanks so much for the compliments on MidnightMan. It was not hard to feel inspired to create the image. Iceman is such a wonderful artist and has really created a great character that I was very honored and pleased to get to draw. Very glad you enjoyed him! SMOOCHES! XOXO

    JC… Hey my friend. You are really too kind. I am beyond thrilled that you enjoyed my illustration of Tai as much as you have! It totally makes my year! HA! HA! HA! I’ve always maintained that I think you are a fantastic artist and that your characters are compelling and DAMN SEXY! It was really an honor to draw Tai for you and I am so pleased you like him! :D Thanks so much for all the kind words!

    I’m really glad you also enjoyed the rest of the posting! The Harpy Men area bit creepy, aren’t they? LOL! But I think it’s cool you still find them a bit sexy too! Guess I did my job right then! LOL!

    Thanks also for the kudos regarding the Previews Adult Zahn cover. It’s good to hear that Zahn is still hot even without his privates on display! Phew! Hopefully, the comic shops will think so too and order up a bunch! HA! HA! HA!

    Much love to ya, my friend. Keep on inspiring me! XOXO

    Adrik… Thanks so much for the lovely words, my friend. I’m really glad you stopped by and that you enjoyed the posting. It’s so cool to know that Zahn has so many fans. I really hope his first issue will not disappoint! EEK! LOL! Much love! XOXO

    Raul… Great to hear from you, you sexy man! :oD I’m so pleased you dropped by! I’m really glad you like my Harpy Men! I too love Mythology and always love doing my very own take on it’s various creatures and such. And thanks for the kudos about my new site. Glad you like the design – now I just have to get the new Adult section up and running! So much to do, so little time! LOL! Stop by anytime, dear friend! XOXO

    Gav… Thanks so much for stopping by and for all the kind words! Much appreciated! Glad you enjoyed the posting. And thanks for the compliment on how I draw blond guys! LOL! I love drawing them too! Tai was such fun to draw… who knows, maybe someday JC’s and my universe will collide and he and Flamer will meet for real!! LOL! As for the Harpy Men, they are actually based upon ancient Greek Mythology Harpies. I had a ton of fun drawing those, and I’m really glad you enjoyed them! Lotsa Luv! XOXO

  13. PS — Vaughn Michael… GOOD QUESTION regarding Zahn and hiding his massive member for the Previews Adult cover! Like that thing would REALLY fit underneath that pouch and belt. At the time it seemed like a good idea! I just hope we can all suspend our disbelief for that one! HA! HA! HA!

    Hugz + Kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  14. Vaughn Michael says

    It’s not an um big erm deal lol
    I didn’t notice really at first.
    But seeing all ur guys lovely large tools I sort of hits you..hey wait…maybe he’s a grower and not a shower lmao!
    Back atcha ;)
    I’d take a stab at drawing you characters myself but I um have some younger people that look at my blog so I don’t know where I’d post them lol I really do love cam though anyone with pointy ears cat man or not is ok in my book lol

  15. Hey Vaughn Michael…

    LOL! Looking at the image of Zahn in question now, I totally get what you mean! You totally do expect that his assets would be showing underneath the pouch. Ah well – you could say he took a bullet for the team on this cover. HA! HA! HA!

    Meanwhile, I would love to see you draw my boys! I look forward to it!!!! :oD

    Much love, dear friend!
    Patrick XOXO
