This is such a classic comic book look - reminds me of the ones I read as a kid. I'm loving the line work or inking or whatever the real comic people call it!

Also: this dude looks like bad news for someone...

Amazing job with the fish eye perspective in the first panel, and the character at the bottom so reminds me of Conan the Cimmerian!

Thanks! The fish eye was tricky. And you nailed it. Conan is one of the comics that made me want to one day draw a comic!

Looks like a real stand-up guy. Interesting that someone else thought to take on a human companion first...

Yeah. Its actually pretty prevalent. If you look at the history of ancient Rome, you find emperors who actually came from Germanic tribes and a long history of hiring Germanic peoples from outside the empire. Julius Ceasar actually said that civilization makes men soft, and there was over time an admiration for barbarians and a belief that they made the best fighters. I wanted to reflect that kind of complex relationship between the invaders and the subjugated peoples because its never black and white in real life.

He smells no good news...
(Ah, good fish eye perspective in the 1st panel)

That looks like..

No, not "looks like". That *is* Conan! O.O

Fair enough. But any square jawed white guy with long black hair is going to look like Conan. This one is modeled after actor, Mads Mikkelsen.
