Father Nature

Father Nature

Punishes disobedient critters.

Bad lemur! Mustn't steal! Mustn't use plastics when Mother has made perfectly acceptable biodegradable alternatives for nests!

A color portrait of this hero can be viewed on Bearskinrug.

Father Nature held the coveted title of Current Champ from Thursday, August 20, 2009 to Monday, August 24, 2009, heartily vanquishing The Lid Lemur to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Artist Son.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Kevin .

Audience

Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  1. I wish I could articulate just how uncomfortable the rendering of that lemur's asshole* makes me.

    *editor's note: rob is referring to the original drawing, that looked like this, except gray.

  2. Try to think of it less like an asshole, and more like the compartment in which you smuggle drugs.

  3. @ROB: Exactly! Especially since father nature is in the buff.

  6. Wait.. Where did father nature get the belt if he was in the buff?

  8. Did you illustrate this text—namely, the lower?

  9. this is so wrong, i thought i was visiting the wrong site for a minute. rob's comment made me laugh out loud in the office and well, of course now everyone wants to know why i'm visiting sites of naked men and asshole bearing rodents. (or whatever they are)
    and where did he get the belt? and I hope to mother nature its not leather!

  10. Adam - Nope! I decided to set the title and description in ITC Clearface, to pick up sort of a seventies throwback layout vibe. After I was done, the illustration just felt like that was the way to go.

    Everyone Else - Man! You're all reading WAY more into this than I thought. Notice that I have now edited the damn thing to preserve the REAL joke.

    In the interest of not being a prude, I will include the original here. In its original glorious color too, to emphasize the redness of a freshly-whupped bottom.

  11. Love the original colour rendition! Why don't you upload them in colour?

  12. We would NEVER have been able to have gotten this site off the ground if the illustrations would be in color. It would just have taken too long to produce each hero. I only did this one in color for a little practice.

  13. Can you say a little bit about the process you use to create these? How large are the originals? What materials do you use? How long do they take? Do you start with a pencil sketch? Etc.. Thanks!

  14. Looking back, this hero will probably have the funniest back story, what with the discomfort of anal depictions.

    I'm still wondering where the hell he got that belt.

    Vercalos | [ a ]
  15. Don't know where the belt came from - but seeing how he's using it, we know why he doesn't have pants.
