Rima and the Beast by LiamSharp Rima and the Beast by LiamSharp
Commission piece, to be featured as a double page spread in the Beauty and the Beast artbook produced exclusively for the Big Wow comic convention in San Jose. Rima was a South American jungle queen, so clearly this is the little known South American gorilla - technically a giant tail-less monkey... :-)

You mentioned a. Wally Wood influence inone of your other posts.  I see some those amazing inking skills here.  It makes me want to dig out my Wally Works.  Tomorrow I think.

Thank you for the flattering comparison! Wasn't my intention to do it as an homage, but he's definitely been an influence over the years... :-)

I know this is a weird question, but, what size paper did you draw this on? was it the size of a poster board or the size of printer paper or...?

Not a strange question at all! I think it was around 22incehes by 18 inches - so pretty big! :-)

Excelent work! Amazing inking. The textures are just right.
Question: Why is the south american queen blonde? I know there are blondes down here, buy wouldn't be more precisce having drawn her with black hair?
Best!

I have no idea! Rima was an old DC character, and I'm afraid to say I have no idea what her origin was... Glad you liked the piece! :-)
