Lord of The Jungle 1 by PaulRenaud Lord of The Jungle 1 by PaulRenaud
This is my first cover for the new Lord of the Jungle series from Dynamite Entertainment. Really wanted to get a Jusko feel here (Joe is one of the best Tarzan artist ever), but the character appears to be younger in the sketch designs I've seen, so that's why I went in that direction too.
I'm one of the monthy cover artists here, and very happy about it.
Here for the announcment:
LORD OF THE JUNGLE BEGINS IN DECEMBER!

EXPANSION OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGH'S CLASSIC TALE!

September 21, 2011, Runnemede, NJ - The original Lord of the Jungle returns! Dynamite is proud to announce the December release of Lord of the Jungle! Dynamite's Lord of the Jungle is true to Edgar Rice Burroughs original tale, savage, violent, and uncensored for the first time in its 100 year history! We are so proud and excited about this book, that we are offering the first FULL issue for the introductory price of just $1.00!

Based on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs adventure story, Tarzan of the Apes, the first of his famous series, which initially began publication in All Story Magazine in 1912. The saga of Greystoke begins in December, written by Arvid Nelson and illustrated by Roberto Castro, and featuring covers by Alex Ross, Lucio Parillo, Ryan Sook, and Paul Renaud!

"Tarzan's DNA is in everything from super heroes to space epics," says writer Arvid Nelson. "But I was surprised at how little I knew about him, because the many adaptations wander very far from the original character. His true story is so much deeper and more interesting -- that's we're trying to bring to life in Lord of the Jungle."

"To allow the series to be accessible to fans old and new, we are offering the first issue at the Introductory Price of $1.00 for the full ENTIRE 32 page comic, as well as dedicating both of the Dynamite front gate folds of the October shipping Previews Magazine to our launch," says Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "Get on board for the biggest comic book launch this December!"

I really like your Tarzan and in comparison to the original character in the Burrough novels your image is very much dead on with the one difference being the hair length. Edgar Rice Burroughs had Tarzan trimming back his hair with sharp shells so that while fighting the enemy couldn't pull his hair. :)

I've read the original Tarzan, it is one of my all time favorite novels. I still don't think they have got him right unfortunately. His physique he is much more like Thor or Hercules, maybe even some scaled down versions of the Hulk. He is a mass of brute strength able to wrestle and defeat silverback mountain gorillas. He is able to leap superhuman distances... I hope at least the don't have him swinging from vines.

This series shows a younger Lord Greystoke, that's why they went for a less muscular physique.

Frazetta a beaucoup utilisé cette technique du fond moins "léché". C'est de là que je le tiens pour ma part.

When I saw this, I thought of Jusko, so you definitely nailed the feel. Great job with the colors, he really stands out from the greens of the back ground! Fantastic!
