Two Lion Dogs by humon
Two Lion Dogs


My site humoncomics.com/

A Shi (a mythological lion/dragon/dog creature often called Foo Dogs in the west) and a Shizi Gou (a real dog breed known as Shih Tzu in the west).

A lot of people mistakenly think the Shi is supposed to look like a Shizi Gou, but it's the other way around. Shi means "lion", and Shizi Gou means "lion dog".
It's unclear if the likeness was on purpose or if the Chinese accidentally bred a dog that kinda looked like a Shi and named it accordingly.

Too much testosterone by humon
Too much testosterone

More Cracked fanart.

Orange drawing is from this www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ6gNB…
A normal day in the life of action heroes written entirely in action movie cliches. Under all the one-liners, random suspense, and mountains of testosterone, it's a rather innocent story of an action hero and his husband inviting another couple who recently became parents over for brunch, where they enjoy the food their friend cooked and fawn over intense baby pictures.

Blue drawing is Soren from After Hours www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNQFF_…
and Ben from Escort Mission www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsCl11…
Nothing suggests AH and EM takes place in the same universe other than Michael being in both, but I always wanted Soren and Ben to meet because they're two versions of the same type of character.
Soren is a handsome jock who's an asshole and secretly a geek. Ben is a handsome jock who's surprisingly nice and only knows the most basic geek stuff. Soren is super embarrassed about his friendship with Daniel and can be quick to knife him in the back to save face. Ben doesn't seem embarrass by Mike (even wants to bring him out in public) and is very calm about their growing romance (He has made a few comments suggesting he's bi, like one of his reasons for wanting to watch football was the "real asses")

Short hair by humon
Short hair

I cut my hair last summer because it was too damn hot. I was afraid I'd regret it, but I couldn't be happier with it.

I've seen a lot of people claim they know what "good art" is or isn't, so I I'll just add my two cents.

I spent a very long time trying to make my own art more realistic (never got close to realism, but there was an attempt) but then I realized I didn't even like realistic art and the only reason I was trying to achieve it was because others had told me that's what I should strive for.

It's not that I think realistic art is bad or that other people are wrong for liking it. I can most certainly see the appeal of it. It's simply that I'm personally not that interested in it. When I see realistic art I tend to not notice the work put into it. It's more like a photo to me, even if it includes a lot of fantastical elements. Again, that's what a lot of people like about it, and that's great. I just happen to like when a drawing is unapologetic about being a drawing, like the styles of Bjørn Wiinblad and Tove Jansson.

There are only two things I personally think are important to learn when drawing: Body proportions (how long are arms compared to the body, how long are legs when folded up, how far are eyes from each other and so on) and perspective (how much smaller does an object get the further it moves away and so on).

Those things will help your art look more balanced, even when you develop your own style and maybe decides that you like your characters to have short legs and arms. Subconsciously you'll keep those things in mind and know how to make it all work together. Then you can decide for yourself what you think is important to your art, like light and shadow, or how fabric works, or whatever you want.

Again, just my personal philosophy on the subject of art. I like to keep the rules simple and let people do their own thing. We get more interesting styles that way.
Underground Travels by humon
Underground Travels

My site humoncomics.com/

"Niels Klim's Underground Travels" is a 1741 book by the Norwegian-Danish author Ludvig Holberg.

Holberg thought religion should be questioned, Europeans were big headed, nobility was ridicules, and women should have equal rights, and he put all those opinions in this satirical fantasy/science fiction story.

It's about Niels Klim who after studying in Denmark for many years, returns to Norway but falls though a deep hole in a cave. It turns out there's a whole solar system inside the Earth with it's own sun and planets. He lands on one of them where he meets many different species.

First he meets a tree-like people who live in an utopian society.
Being a European (white), Christian, well-educated man, Niels thinks he's hot shit and should get an important job with the king, but he quickly learns that non of those things mean anything to them. They have no idea what a European is so they just see him as a form of monkey, they believe in a higher power but also that this power can never be known so no religion is better than the other, his education is useless in their eyes because he spent a lot of time studying many things but never became the master of even one of them, and men and women have equal rights because they strongly believe that the most qualified should get a job and not be held back by their birth (He first learns this when he meets a very respected female judge). On top of that, they tell him he wouldn't be a good leader, maybe even a bad one.
Instead they "normalize" him by teaching him their language and dressing him up like them. Because he has long legs and can walk faster than them he's sent out into the country to write about the various less utopian provinces. His book becomes very popular, but when he still doesn't get a promotion he notice one of the highest positions in the country is taken by a woman so he suggest to the king that women should be stripped of all power. The king is not impressed with this suggestion. In fact Niels is exiled from the country and sent to a nearby land ruled by monkeys.

This monkey land is ruled by foolish, vain, jealous, and spiteful creatures. They too dress him like them (even giving him a fake tail) and he manages to reach nobility and a great deal of power by introducing them to wigs like those in Europe. Unfortunately the queen falls in love with him, and when he denies her because he doesn't want to sleep with a monkey she tells her husband he tried to rape her. As punishment he is made a slave on a ship.

During his sea travels he visits various strange countries, eventually ending up in a land run by animals. A pig woman lusts after him and his master tells him to sleep with her, but when he refuse she attacks the ship and everybody has to flee. In the panic they end up in a storm and the ship sinks.

He is saved by a people that looks like dark-skinned humans and he helps them achieve greatness through war. They make him their emperor but like the tree people predicted he doesn't make a good leader. He is blinded by power and becomes a tyrant killing people for looking at him wrong, and is eventually chased out of the country. While hiding he falls through another hole, through the planet and is flung back up through the original hole, back to Norway. Here he is told he has been gone for 12 years.

Yooooooouuuuu should think about making or allowing others to make some little Scandinavia and the World characters for the Don't Starve game. They would be just right. (Just a thought)

Dear humon, can you make something that is not a part of your sick fetishes?
I understand that DevianTART is a place where sick fucks, fags, furfags, and other mentally ill people find their heaven, but you aren't like them, am I right?

I would just like to say that your ability to create such rich stories with complex characters and intricate plots is astounding. What is it like to be inside your head?
