1958 by ashren 1958 by ashren
Finally finished :) (possibly) last in the series, though I may add an epilogue with Eleanor as I have once again not included her.

Clockwise from top left: Mugambi (childhood friend of Tora), Tarzan, Jane, Tora (Tarzan and Jane's daughter, for those who don't know), Edward (Tora's husband at this point), Edward jr a.k.a. Eddie, Jane jr a.k.a. Akeli, Eleanor jr a.k.a. Etana, Stefan (Eleanor's son/Tora's nephew/Eddie, Akeli and Etana's counsin), plus Cheetah and Ungo the two dogs.

Setting is Greystoke House in Scotland. At this time Tora and her husband are Lord and Lady Greystoke (though I am still not quite settled on this detail...and am wondering if rather Tarzan and Jane would posess those titles. Tell me what you think. If you care ;) ).

This took me ages.

If you are bothered by the fact that Tarzan and Jane still look young here, then there is a specific reason for it. I'm not going to go on about it. Just think in the direction of Atlantean crystals at the moment ;)

Look in my resources folder in my favourites for resources used (especially the background. I never do seem to be brave enough to have a go at painting my own).

It's very hot here in England, unusually, and I must go now because I'm worried my pug is about to drop dead from the (night time!!) heat :S

Wow, Jane looks a bit like Emma Thompson. To me anyways. But still, awesome detail!

Very nice. You need not go any further the ERB for Tarzan and Jane's youth. One of the later books, mentions a plant extract that retards the aging process.

This is astounding, the realism of this piece is so great! Wonderful, wonderful work and attention to detail, the background is phenominal! It is so much fun to find interesting images like this and also to see Tarzan dressed like that :giggle: I really enjoy the way you styled Jane's hair and how their dress reminds me of a perfect American 1950s family!

Oh, wow! I'm really glad you enjoyed it! When I draw Tarzan and Jane nowadays I like to dress or style them differently from how they normally are, for a bit of variety! It's funny how people tend to draw their favourite characters in their original, iconic outfits all the time...I mean, I've done it too - but I don't know why really!! ;)

Thank you for the lovely comment! :happybounce:

Wow, this is quite the picture... I don't know if I could ever attempt such an undertaking! Everyone looks great, and I love that you have not just family, but extended family (friends) as well. Excellent work!

It was........epic. I've got a feeling I won't be trying another thing like it very soon ;) though I am very proud of it. It was nice to get a bunch of the people who have only ever existed in my head down on paper, and have them all in eachother's company, showing their personalities etc. Thank you for your lovely encouraging comment :)

Silly question - is there any significance to Jane having a wedding ring and Tarzan not?

ashren Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah - only that it was like that in the t.v. series :) Tarzan gave Jane a diamond as a present, and then later it was put on a ring for her (seen in some promotional pictures), wheras there was never any sign of Tarzan wearing one.

I'm guessing he wouldn't have considered it very safe to wear jewellery while doing all that swinging about in trees ;) :P

They are all original characters of mine (though Mugambi is partially based on a character from the original Tarzan books, and shares the same name).

I assume you're referring to my earlier comment about them looking more cartoony than others in the picture.

Hehe, it's funny how some say they don't think she resembles Tarzan and Jane, while others can recognise her :D I'm glad that you feel that way. I really like how she looks, though I think in retrospect I *could* have made a stronger resemblance. But I'm glad you like the picture!! :dance:

I think you've had comments about this in the past regarding your Tora character, but she really doesn't look related to Jane and Tarzan. I can buy that she's tanned, because she and her father have the same skintone, but her actual features make her look mixed. To counter this observation, don't think i don't like the drawing. The hair and fashion and patterns are all beautifully done! That one detail is just kind of distracting.

It's funny because when I was drawing her I thought she looked too much like Jane, so I kept adjusting her features to make them a bit less similar. Now, with the colour and everything as well, she looks too much unlike her. But it was too late to go back and make changes. I've had trouble drawing Tora's look consistently ever since I started drawing her. I also think that Tarzan and Jane look much more 'cartoony' than the other characters in this drawing, so it doesn't all fit perfectly. On the other hand, I'm pleased with a lot of elements of this painting, like the other things you mentioned :) I've just got to keep on working on getting my characters looking right :P thank you very much for your feedback, I really appreciate it :)
