    Men of CA unite!

    Men of CA unite!



    Welcome to men's HQ in the battle of the sexes In this thread we will discuss battle strategies. This battle is unconventional, in that each side must choose the battleground of the other. We will have to put our muscled, hairy brains together to formulate a topic for the ladies that will derail Jenny's plans for world domination..

    We face a tenacious enemy. Jenny, unburdened by our manly insecurities, is able to tackle subjects that would cause a grown man to vomit in homophobic disgust. She is also incredibly determined, versatile and graceful in the way she portrays her subjects.

    Take this fraulein for example:

    Men of CA unite!

    Seemingly harmless. Well boys don't let your back turn on ol' Jenny! Right when you least expect it, BAM! -

    Men of CA unite!

    and right there, all of your hopes in dreams are shattered by a devil in pink!


    So men, let us unite in a coalition of the hairy. If we work together, Jenny won't know what hit her!

    --------------------------------------------


    Ok, now to work. What you need to do is:

    - Pledge yourself to the cause
    - Either submit a possible topic or discuss an existing one. remember, they're going to try to trip us up the best they can, we need to do the same!

    We also need to be ready for whatever Jenny is going to throw at us. If the CA calendar contests taught us anything, it's that Jenny is fully capable of depicting her own kind in sexually explicit ways without resorting to humour, while this is a specific weakness for us males. Jenny knows this. be prepared to depict any of the following:

    - love
    - other feelings (aside from masculine rage)
    - homosexuality
    - female issues
    - other social issues
    - whimsy (little people, teddy bears, sparkly cheeks and the like)
    - my little pony

    Keep your head down, remember your training, and we'll all get through this in one piece.

    I'll be occupied for the night so I'd best get my ideas down now:

    What I think might be unusual for a female to depict:

    Gritty scenes
    Old, tough men (think odin, battle wizard etc)
    gore

    Putting some of that together, I have one cohesive topic: gritty old male veteran after the war which war, what era, how he looks like etc. to be determined by the individual artist. not the strongest idea but it's a start.

    Buwhahahaha yes yes yes YES!! And no Jason I wasn't being sarcastic. The best way to organize a body of people is to pick a leader.

    I pledge my soul body and mind to this cause.

    How about BIG ROBOTS. We havt o assume that most females shirk away form the techno babble that is huge hulking robots.

    I think, to be totally honest, the best form of attack would be from the jugular.
    I also want everyone to come out of this, regardless of gender, with a potentially good portfolio piece. (maybe i'm just being nice)

    Mecha, technical robots.
    Airship battles
    Brutal alien planets

    something of that nature. I'll figure out more specifics later.

    (also, count me in for battle.)

    My suggestions...Dunno...Men's locker room? Someplace they've never been (usually)?

    Gang violence? Ever seen City of God? Something intense...

    And don't they have the advantage of a private forum whilst we have this thread for all the world to see?

    Hmmm. I'm not sure I should, but I'll try.

    As for the girls bit: A veteran mecha and pilot in a genocidal war. Evidence of atrocity must be present. Depiction is of the side loosing, ie struggling to stay alive. A techno war from the loosing end. Cyberpunk vibe. I'll stop there I don't know how specific we are allowed to be.

    awesome speech sarge!

    I second the ideas put forward, about giant robots, military gear and spaceships, the jenny seems to be flawed at technical details and engineering, instead deciding to focus on emotion and compassion...

    Also anything that shows women being helpless in the face of the awesomeness of man.....

    You all seem to be neglecting one fact... Jenny has been training right alongside us hairy types all the while, they have the know-how to defend against our brutally unrelenting thirst for gore and power. We need to really hit them where it hurts if we stand a chance at surviving!

    I suggest we take the topics they most love and twist them into horrible atrocities of their former selves.

    We need to take every form of 'cide" we can come up with and slam them all together into a clusterfuck of anti-girl that will make jenny run screaming for the hills with panties and cosmetics all rolled into one untidy little package!

    ponycide
    shoping-mall-attendentcide
    cosmeticide
    boyfriendocide
    grandmacide
    grandpacide (sorry Ilaekae)
    cookiecide
    pinkocide
    shoecide
    teapartycide
    teddybearcide

    .... and the list goes on.

    Come on furry ones! Surely we can do better than what we have already!

    Women are always trying to get men to cross dress. It's hilarious to them. That one would be poison to us.

    They won't want to paint anything that makes them cry from empathy.

    attack jenny's empathy!

    Anything action, grisly, or robot oriented simply wont work.

    Alright, let's hit 'em where it hurts...

    A self-portrait--waking up in the morning after a three-day drinking binge--no make up, bed hair, stains on everything, zits, no shower/bath for three days, Mr. X from somewhere next to them...

    Exactly. Orcs and robots and stuff are still easily doable, the same with woman dying tragic deaths.

    We're definitely at a disadvantage here guys, so one more time: don't be afraid to get really touchy feely on this one, chances are we'll HAVE to.

    @Ilaekae: OOOhhhhh that's just terrible and I love it.

    This slow website ate my reply....

    Along the lines of what Sepulverture's talking about, I think we need to think in terms of 'emotional gore.' Something that's so terribly pitiful, disturbing or simply terrible that it wouldn't normally phase a guy but would hit a girl right in the sternum.

    leaving weak grandma behind to slow our enemies

    bunny's last breath

    I'm too tired to think of more...

    In the end, the topic isn't the real deal breaker, it's what we do with what we get.

    I know I may be on my own here...but I think randomness works to our advantage.

    That of course leads me to 3CH. Random pairings of people each with their own randomly selected topic...I think that would be completely our advantage.

    Another thought is that if we do go the route of individual pairings like a LMS format, letting the two agree on a topic for their specific battle would always work for me.

    i say something without emotions, girls, flowers, trees, pastel colors, handsome men, birds, animals etc etc. I've been looking through a bunch of girls' work in the galleries, and those seem to be repeating patterns.

    It might be unoriginal, but i say we go for something built for function, perhaps especially killing. Or digging. Like a futuristic stripmining machine, or something like that. Whatever we choose i think it should be something without emotion, since quite frankly jenny seem to be better at that.

    Men of CA unite!

    Reporting for Duty, sir.

    Ideas for Operation M.A.N. (Mighty Art Nads):

    1. Graphic scenes from Mayan book Popol Vuh and/or other related gods/goddesses. Requirement to be gory enough to make weak stomachs cringe.

    2. Child Killer (as in a child who kills...)

    3. Something involving bodily fluids, like being spit on or in that theme (within legal reason <.< >.> wut? I know a lot of girls that bodily fluids makes them run away quite easily).

    4. Boxing action scene (maybe even require them to pick a famous boxing match, ie: Ali vs. Frasier 1, etc)

    5. anything Dead,decaying or otherwise disgusting.

    6. Lovers being separated permanently (death/war/hate/etc)

    7. Self Portraits, but bald.

    Ok, sir, I will report back again when I have more information.

    Private 1st Class, Goforth, out!

    ok well lets start to narrow this down, we have 4 paths that seem predominant.

    *technical stuff.

    *destroying stuff they love. (this one i don't think would challenge them)

    *completely heartless stuff. (eg. little kid with a puppy being taken apart by a pack of wolves)

    *extreme gore masculine stuff.

    so what way do we want to push it?
