Jungle Turns – Chapter 15/16

~Zaftig~

Welcome back for another episode of “As The Jungle Turns” with your host, Jaime Leos. And as always I am joined with my talented partner, Pia Langfeld!  So sit back and enjoy!
We are going to combine both Zaftig and Voluptuous as they both take place at Zaftig’s House of Bodacious Women!
Before drawing Rabble for chapter 14, Pia and I began discussing how we would transition to the word Zaftig.  Pia lived in Germany and told me that the word sounded like the word, “saftig” which meant “juicy”.

After checking on Google images, we decided that we needed to chase Faith and the Twins to a strip club named “Zaftig’s House of Bodacious Women.”  However, because we are still on Faith’s turf the club will be very risky and dangerous.

While looking for reference pictures I came across a draw from one of our Monkey Sidebars members, Straylightv,  who mentioned an artist named Babs Tarr.  I began researching her and found a drawing that would be great for our Zaftig club theme.  There is a restaurant here in San Antonio, Texas called “Old San Francisco Steakhouse” which features an older, gold rush ambiance and a swinging girl from the ceiling.
This picture brought me  home.

I wanted a draw that would give an introduction of the dangerous and disreputable establishment.  A place that was frequented by both politician and criminals.
Mary and Agent W-D40 would begin their search for the Twins and Faith.  Yet as fate would have it, a pair of  “twins” found them!!
The Zaftig dancer led the duo to Heidi, the bar owner.

 Pia’s idea for Heidi was draw a bodacious barmaid and in keeping with the German Zaftig theme, she would be dressed like a Bavarian Oktoberfest lady with a name like Hilda or Heidi!
I immediately thought of the St. Pauli Girl.

Pia drew her in the style of Angelina Jolie with her zaftig-like lips and other ‘juicy’ credentials.    Heidi’s character was that of a savvy business owner.  There was nothing that happened at Zaftig’s that Heidi didn’t know about!  She looked at Mary and demanded a dance on-stage in exchange for information.
Pia’s idea for the dance was to do something that would distract the audience while Agent W-D40 could search for the Twins and Faith.  If there was ever a scene in a movie that strip club patrons were distracted and amazed it would have to be the scene from Flashdance where Jennifer Beals pulls that rope making the water drop on her!  This was the inspiration for Pia’s next draw.

 ~Voluptuous~

When brainstorming for the Voluptuous draws, Pia and I began throwing up ideas that “with all of the voluptuous girls at Zaftig’s House of Bodacious Women, Agent W only had eyes for Mary.”  We wanted to draw an escalating relationship between Agent W and Mary.  We wanted to build something as the next word for Monkey Sidebars was “Incandescent”.

I decided to draw Mary coming off stage with her clothes all wet!
She would come off stage, strutting her stuff yet playing innocent….
“My clothes seem to be all wet Agent W!  Help a lady?”

Agent W being the gentleman that he is decided to give Mary ‘the shirt off his back’ revealing his voluptuous self.  Pia’s idea was to draw a voluptuous male figure since we had all of these half naked women so I drew this for our lovely lady-monkeys.  Claire Austin’s response was the funniest to me because the ‘love-trail’ of hair under the umbilicus made her chuckle.

We continue with the chivalrous acts of Agent W as he assists Mary with the shirt to keep her from getting cold.  I believe Mary is impressed with his gentlemanly gestures!

Agent W and Mary were getting off track and off the mission.  They approached Heidi to gain their information on the Twins.
Heidi led them to the land of voluptuous mountains….Tibet.

We had a lot of fun with these two rounds of words and our fellow Monkey Sidebars friends also had some HOT submissions!!  Freddy Mercury said it best when he said, “Fat Bottom Girls You Make The Rocking World Go Round!”

Jungle Turns- Chapter 13

~Faith~

Hello Everyone!!
Back again to share how the ideas for faith came about.  Several ideas came about between Pia and I.  We spoke about chasing the Twins through dark alley ways since our next word was “Rabble”.  I had an idea to have Wayne calling for backup while before entering the ghetto.  Mary would get too anxious and want to chase them before they got away but Wayne would tell her, “Have Faith.”  We scrapped this idea and came up with the following draws.

While Pia was researching reference draws for “Faith”, she came across several graffiti draws with their faith being depicted.  She went with this idea and got many religions and faiths into her draw.

On this draw, I came up with the quote from Dante’s Inferno while Dante and Virgil enter Hell, they are greeted with the phrase, “Abandon all hope ye who enter here” but we changed the ‘hope’ to ‘Faith’ to go along with the new character we were about to introduce.

I drew Faith as the leader of a ruthless gang.  She would have to be able to move the Twins with little notice, able to obtain weapons, fake ID’s, etc. so she would need to be connected.  Someone who would not want to be arrested nor someone who would be willing to go quietly.  Of course, she would need to be bad ass.  On the captions, I did not want to use “….and this is my ‘hood!!!” but I couldn’t think of anything better at the time.
Posting time was coming up soon and I couldn’t think of another word for ‘neighborhood’ or ‘turf’ due to mental constipation (or brain farts).

Here, I drew Faith wanting to ‘put a hurting’ onto Mary but her priorities were to get the Twins out of the country…. preferably somewhere they couldn’t be extradited.  I drew Faith with Iron Crosses as a symbol of Faith.
Since our introduction of Faith we have only shown her in one draw (Dance) but not recognizable since Faith is drugged.  But we will come up to that in future Jungle Turn posts.  I hope that we can get a great word selected by our monkey friends where we can have Mary and Faith finally face each other and have a great fight with plenty of action or maybe an oil wrestling match!!
