Happy New Year, everybody. Antoni here. It is time to get this jungle heated up with a horde of muscular jungle warrior kings and a couple of well-built jungle queens. Whether I have enjoyed drawing my three favourite Filipino musclemen Fernando from Doodle of Doom plus Init-Init and Bernardo Carpio from the PSICOM comics, my four favourite jungle king brothers in animation George of the Jungle, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli who have found themselves in romantic relationships with one Greek demigod Hercules and two Powhatan warriors Namontack and Kocoum, my seven most beloved jungle brothers in comics and animation Conan of Cimmeria, Ka-Zar of the Savage Lands, Zula of the Wasai, Tarzan of the Dell Comics, Kavandavanda, Malb’yat, and Aroc, and, most of all, the Splendid Seven consisting of Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Ayame, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran with Inuyasha x Ayame and Ginta x Shunran being my two most beloved Inuyasha OTPs of all time, I always enjoyed drawing them. I even hope that they continue to receive a lot more love because it is a lot of fun seeing these jungle warriors do their thing.
George of the Jungle, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli are the closest of brothers, given how they were raised very well by the dear old dad Chief Keewazi, and consider themselves the most huggable of jungle muscle brothers. They are also fortunate to be surrounded by best friends like Fernando, Init-Init, and Bernardo Carpio, for they consider them to be brothers from other mothers. Sure, they enjoy their bodybuilding pose-downs, wrestling matches, and admiring each others’ muscles, but they get serious by building a formidable muscle wall and flexing their tremendous biceps to show to their enemies that they mean business. Their feral sides would then show when they attack their enemies with their bare hands, furious fists, and magnificent muscles. After every battle, they keep themselves warm by huddling to each other in the nude as they fall asleep. In order to keep themselves fit, Fernando, Init-Init, Bernardo, George, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli would partake in weightlifting, bodybuilding pose-downs, wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, swimming, diving, and even hunting and gathering with their bare hands, claws, and fangs. This is especially true since Basuli and Tarzan tend to be the most feral of the brothers.
George’s, Basuli’s, Tarzan’s, and Maugli’s love lives are just as dynamic and beautiful. Basuli and Tarzan have been both happily married to Namontack and Kocoum ever since they were teenagers and have families of their own complete with children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. To this day, Namontack x Basuli and Kocoum x Tarzan are still the jungle’s most beautiful couples ever. George of the Jungle and Maugli are just as fortunate to be in love with Namontack and Kocoum because of how protective and huggable they are to the point where both Basuli and Tarzan do not mind if George makes love with Namontack and Maugli makes love with Kocoum. This is because both Basuli and Tarzan also have a handsome lover in Hercules. Although, Hercules has been the best of friends with George, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli since they were children, Hercules has always fancied Basuli and Tarzan a lot more because they are just as strong, brave, and physically formidable as he is, and he always considered the bond he has with both Basuli and Tarzan to be special. In fact, Hercules has inherited his father Zeus’s signature charm in that he has become the apple of Namontack’s, Kocoum’s, George’s, Basuli’s, Tarzan’s, and Maugli’s eyes. Zeus, Powhatan, and Keewazi even remark how greatly their sons have been getting together with each other. Combining Namontack’s and Basuli’s as well as Kocoum’s and Tarzan’s happy marriage, George and Maugli finding themselves in equally loving relationships with Namontack and Basuli, and Basuli and Tarzan loving Hercules to bits, there is no stopping these jungle warriors from letting their family grow and grow under the mantle of love, joy, and prosperity. Whether it is touching each others’ muscles or making sweet love to each other, with the patterns being Namontack x Basuli, Kocoum x Tarzan, Namontack x George, Kocoum x Maugli, Basuli x Hercules x Tarzan, Namontack x Hercules x Kocoum or George x Hercules x Maugli, there will always be room for that sexy, virile, handsome love. Even their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren love the fact that their fathers and uncles have been remaining in wonderfully harmonious and loving relationships.
Strong brotherly love is just as phenomenal when Conan, Ka-Zar, Zula, Tarzan, Kavandavanda, Malb’yat, and Aroc step to the podium. Conan’s fierceness, Ka-Zar’s endurance, Zula’s loyalty, Tarzan’s formidability, Kavandavanda’s charm, Malb’yat’s toughness, and Aroc’s lovability have brought them together as brothers even to the point where they have become united as a virile family. They have even made names for themselves by making their own jungle gym focusing on weightlifting, muscle-building, bodybuilding, wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, swimming, and diving. With that strong brotherly love comes that sense of competition that unites seven of them as the strongest, handsomest, and most virile of brothers. They always love having wrestling, bodybuilding, and weightlifting matches with each other because they keep each other alive. They even pass it on to their progeny, specifically onto Dan-El, Natongo, Korak, Bomba, Jason, Dick, and Dom, for they have become just as super strong as their fathers and uncles. They would even invite John Carter, Kaanga, Ki-Gor, Zembla, Jo-Jo, Akim, and Tor for wrestling and bodybuilding matches. Therefore, Conan, Ka-Zar, Zula, Tarzan, Kavandavanda, Malb’yat, and Aroc continue to be the super strong and super handsome jungle brothers that they are.
Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Hakkaku, Inuyasha, Ayame, Ginta, and Shunran are in their element when it comes to being jungle warlords. Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and Ayame may be the lord high priest, king, and queen of the jungle, but their surrogate siblings are just as vital, considering that Shuran is the bodyguard of the jungle, Hakkaku is the messenger of the jungle, Ginta is the captain of the guard of the jungle, and Shunran is the peacekeeper of the jungle. These seven jungle yokai warriors could definitely give Ka-Zar, Tarzan, Kavandavanda, Malb’yat, Aroc, Kaanga, Jo-Jo, and Akim a run for their money because of how fierce, super strong, and formidable they truly are. Even Ayame and Shunran could make La of Opar, Shanna, Rulah, and Sheena quite envious because of how equally powerful they are. Sesshoumaru’s, Shuran’s, Inuyasha’s, Hakkaku’s, and Ginta’s mighty muscles, gorilla-like super strength, and lion-like fierceness compliment Ayame’s and Shunran’s leopard-like agility, lioness-like courage, and gazelle-like speed to such a phenomenal degree. Their jungle residence is at the Temple of the Animal Gods which is situated very deeply in Africa. When Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Ayame, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran are prepared for battle, they do what like George, Basuli, Tarzan, Maugli and their Mangani brethren do, exclaim “Kreegah bundolo!” and let out a huge roar. These seven jungle yokai warriors would even let out the signature Tarzan yell whenever they spring into action. Sesshoumaru’s, Inuyasha’s, Ayame’s, Shuran’s, Hakkaku’s, Ginta’s, and Shunran’s claws, fangs, muscles, and fists could rip any poacher and predator to shreds even to the point where Basuli and Tarzan would have to retreat, especially when these seven jungle yokai warriors have their eyes glow a ferociously vibrant red to demonstrate that there will be a lot of blood. Overlooking how fierce these seven jungle yokai warriors are, Sesshoumaru, Shuran, and Hakkaku have a tight bond based on loyalty and allegiance, Inuyasha and Ayame are very intimate as a couple, Ginta and Shunran are unconditionally loving as a couple, Inuyasha and Ginta have a strong bond as brothers from other mothers, and Ayame and Shunran care for each other so much as blood sisters for life. This jungle family of seven will always be there for each other through thick and thin.
I hope to do more of George, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli being totally in love with Namontack, Kocoum, and Hercules, specifically with Namontack x Basuli, Kocoum x Tarzan, Basuli x Hercules x Tarzan, Namontack x George, Kocoum x Maugli, Namontack x Hercules x Kocoum, George x Hercules x Maugli, and all four jungle brothers and two Powhatan brothers show their undyingly intimate love to Hercules; George, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli being the best of brothers, especially with Basuli and Tarzan being really feral; Ka-Zar, Tarzan, Kavandavanda, Malb’yat, and Aroc having the tightest brotherly bond ever with Conan and Zula; and, most of all, jungle-style Splendid Seven consisting of Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Ayame, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran. Jungle musclemen will continue to come top of mind when it comes to what I have been specialising in, and they will never leave my sight.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and have a wild New Year when 2022 comes, everybody.
