We recently got to ask Achilles of Achilles Heel Art how he comes up with his sexy gay tickle fetish art. He said he starts with a basic idea and sketches it out. In this toon, he wanted the guy to be tickled by a machine, and also wanted a pulp magazine vibe. As you can see, Achilles started out with a prisoner of war theme, but decided that was too heavy, so he tried a a scientist with a playful look, then filled in the details. Next he cleaned things up a bit, added contrast and colored it in. After the shadows were added, which really brings the guys to life, Achilles added the masthead, text and 'aged' the cover a bit, and voila! The finished product - a sexy guy handcuffed and tickled for science!
