    "guys who draw guys"- calendar idea (no pun intended, I mean it)

    Just got a PM from Carniflex, who supported a sick idea I have been stating (thanx, dude) and prompted me to open this thread.


    Okay guys, here's the deal:

    As some of you folks might have noticed, something big has been brewing in the lounge for the last few days. I'm talking about the "female-artists-only-thunderdome" (http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=64096) and the "female artists draw/paint a pinup calendar" (http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=64196) projects, both of wich are fantastic ideas in my oppinion.

    During the discussions about those projects a thought came to my mind that has been hammering in my head for days now: If the women of CA.org are preparing to give us an insight of their idea of female beauty, why shouldn't the males do the same?

    I'm talking about the men of CA.org doing MALE pinups, giving everyone a glimpse of their definition of "sexy men".

    Before I go into detail I wanna make something clear:

    This is NOT an effort to counteract the original ideas, nor is it intended to prove anything stupid like "male supremacy in art" or provoke outings or other silly kindergarten-thoughts one could come up with - this is JUST FOR FUN!

    Be reasonable, folks. We all are old enough not to get stupid ideas like "we're getting back at them females" for no apparent reason and I think we are all open to some new ideas.

    Another thing I wanna make clear:

    If this idea goes beyond the "poll"- stage, I cannot promise that a calendar like that would actually go to print. I dont know how to to do that... if the idea creates interest, a printed calendar could happen, if not - live with the fact that it'll stay in these forums and in your portfolios.


    Okay... now that thats out of the way, lets move on to the details:

    What fascinates me about the idea is the "break from the norm"- factor it has. We draw demons, elves, cyborgs, creatures, enviroments, weapons, armours, dinosaurs, anatomy studies and whatnot. Lets face it: most of the picture topics here cover the categories "fantasy" and "science fiction".

    Don't get me wrong- I love that stuff, but there's something thats actually missing in a lotta pieces that float around here: a certain kind of deeper personality.
    We get paid to do that kind of stuff or we like to draw "cool" things, but do we show a part of ourselves with those creations? Maybe the topic of our pictures is an indication of how we felt at the moment we drew that depressed skeleton or that crying woman, but its all open to interpretation.

    Thats why I thought "Be honest and straight forward with your art, just once!". Throw all homophobic tendencies and misunderstandings aside and ask yourself this:

    "What would make a man sexy for me/how would a man look like that I would find sexy?" (not to be mistaken with stupid questions like "wich male would i like to bunk with")

    I asked myself this question only a few days ago when the female calendar idea came up (surprised myself actually). The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do a pic like that (it will happen anyways, once I'm through with my current assignment ). Apparently Carniflex had the same thoughts.

    I'm pretty curious what kinds of pictures you guys would come up with. I'm not asking you to produce "gay art" or copy those "black and white ripped jeans guy without a tshirt standing at the beach" pinup posters that were on the walls of every girl's bedroom during the late 80's/early 90's, i'm asking you to show everyone here how a sexy man would look like in your eyes.


    Long story, short sense: who would be brave enough to "soul strip" a bit and show the CA.org community a bit of your personality through a painted/drawn male pinup?

    Let me know...

    Cheers,
    Etienne

    P.S.: no dongs- wanna keep it tasteful

    and to add one last thing: we're not gay.


    aight,i voted for it,because the idea fascinates me,and i'm all for "soul strip". i can't tell myself why exactly,but it surely is something i'd like to see happen.
    perhaps collabs aswell? (or like suggested in the women's thread,make two pics for each month)

    p.s.: it's carnifex,not carniflex.

    Heheh, well as a girl, I think it's a lovely idea! I don't think it's a "getting back at chicks" thing at all. Go for it! I'd love to see the end result!

    Magic, never say "I'd love to see the end result!" when guys are talkin' about drawin' guys...

    How does a sexy male look though? I tried to google for sexy males but the results were horrible, then I went into the 4chan Yaoi section, ahmahgawd!

    I'd guess the following:

    Sad -I'm a vulnerable puppy please come and make me whole- eyes.
    Tall.
    Not too muscular, somewhat slender.
    Defined jawbone.
    Symetry.
    Hair you can ruffle.
    Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.

    This is a step behind a "Dicks who draw dicks" calendar.

    I'd jump on this except that the first ideas that ran through my head were

    ripped demon guy coming out of an evil fog
    cyborg zombie
    ninja pirate
    marine
    Fabio



    Somehow I think it'd be better without me, even though I dread seing what some of you come up with. I'm not sure this will end well.
