And so yeah, I kindof don’t remember the model from which these were based. All I remember is that I probably wasn’t really attracted to him, which is why I turned each of his poses into a hot Persuasions character!

And by the way, as a friendly response to one of the comments: The very same day this issue came out, I was on a crowded train and was treated to one of the more blatant displays of public affection I’d ever seen. The girl was in a summery skirt, no underwear, and the boy was in sweatpants, also no underwear. They were looking around nervously but noted only me watching so they totally started to go at it. They began making out– heavily. He sucked her neck while she fondled him through his pants. When he got visibly hard, he looked around again to see if anyone was paying attention. Naturally, I continued to stare, with a bit of a “wtf” expression on my face. This (I think) prompted the young couple to get off the train at the next stop. Also, this very same issue of TimeOut has an article about how NYC is a public sex wonderland.
Humbuged had some pics that he’d drawn on his Nintendo DS. Being the annoying guppie that I am, I always have the latest tekkie gizmos. Before I got my iPhone, I had a really amazing pocket PC smart-phone that was super customizable. At the time, I was friggin’ obsessed with finding a good digital painting program for it. But alas, none of them really worked.
The application is called Colors! and it is a homebrew game created by Jens Andersson. It keeps things incredibly simple for ease of use. And the resulting works can look really amazing. I was never a real lover of any traditional media other than a pens and pencils, but this program makes it look like I can watercolor with the beat of ’em! Haha
My favorite feature of the game is that it records every single brushstroke so you can view an animation of the progress of your drawing! I’m so enamoured with this game, it’s not even funny. The only real problem is since I only really play with it in public (on the subway) I can’t really draw anything all that raunchy. When you have a DS or PSP or whatever, it’s a given that folks are gonna look over your shoulder. I don’t know if I could take the guilt of exposing some impressionable young tyke to a giant cartoon cock.
Finally, I’d like to introduce you all to a phenomenal artist I’ve only recently just met. Anthony Gonzales was perhaps one of the first people to become friendly with me in these drawing sessions I’ve been attending. I noticed his awesome work in the class the first few times and then, one time he brought in his XXX portfolio of personal work. I must say, I was completely in awe of this traditional master renderer with his genuine love and understanding of the male form. He uses mixed media and when I say mixed– I mean MIXED! For example, many of his pieces featured beautiful African-American men with their “bling” done in metallic shimmery marker and sometimes even glitter! And he had this other piece where this guy was drinking spunk from the “tap” and it was done with Elmer’s glue! So brilliant! He gave me one of the pieces, shown below. I like to think it’s my character Drakaar from Persuasions. hehe
And then for my birthday, Anthony brought in these two pieces from which I’m still freaking out over. First up, we’ve got Paxton giving it to Tai, wondering if Caleb‘s unit will fit in as well! Look at the subtle detail in Paxton’s legs.
Anthony does not have a site up just yet but I am pestering him to get on-the-ball about it. In the meantime, I think he is taking commissions via his e-mail addy. And you can also check out some work he did in the recently published Dirty Little Drawings.
I found 2 of Anthony’s pieces online. Not great repros, though.
Preston’s expression here is decidedly serious because people are always saying how humorous my work is– even when I’m not tying to make it funny. So yeah– Preston is SOMBER and CONTEMPLATIVE here! Imagine him thinking about a man he shot last week or something.
Oh– but I guess he wouldn’t he wanking his dick while thinking about heinous crimes he committed. Oh well, whatever– it’s just NOT supposed to be comical.
The dude on the left is Dustin, the bartender who made a minor appearance in Persuasions: Phase 01. Milan is the guy on the right, whom you’ll remember as the young reluctant heir to the Van Bruno empire. So, I guess I’m revealing here that these two are lovers… but don’t worry because there are tons of more surprising twists and turns for their storyline.
In this illustration, you’ll be interested to know that trying to make a room appear “dirty” was far more difficult for me than I was expecting. I tweaked it for days. Hopefully, the idea came across. This is supposed to be one really skankatacious motel.
Also, I’m proud to announce that this drawing, along with 15 of my other favorite pieces, is up for sale as a limited edition print. Visit Shop.Anti-Heroes.Net to get your mitts on them!
And next is a sketch I did on a flight a few weeks ago. It was really annoying because there was this guy who was one of those “I-need-attention-so-I-talk-to-strangers” types, and he kept trying to peek over my shoulder and see the drawing and make conversation with me.
Aaaand, I’m also ploppin’ in the two drawings for Persuasions that I left outta the last post. Now that I know someone actually read it, I feel more confident giving up the cum-soaked “piece de resistance.” haha.
I’ve always liked the soaps and I’ve always wanted to create something similar. I figured since there aren’t really any gay ones out there, I’d try that out.
The format is inspired by video games (hello, it’s ME!) Particularly RPGs or any game with a story mode where you see little icons representing the character that’s speaking. I love it when their facial expressions change according to their emotion.
Also, with Persuasions, I figured I’d give you guys a taste of my erotic writing. You know, I used to write and illustrate X-Men slash fiction and it was pretty well received on the internet. Of course, then I went through a “boycott all fan-art” phase and took all the stories offline. Wish I could find them– or better yet, the drawings I did with them.
Many of the illustrations in Persuasions were created specifically for the series. Some of them, I ended up being so proud of that I’ve started using them as promotional pieces. Particularly the one with Preston and Marq on the bed and the one with Brody and Seb in the shower. There is also one XXX pic that I REALLY REALLY like embedded within the story that I’m not including here on the blog. Why? Incentive for you guys to read the story!
There are also some older illustrations sprinkled throughout PHASE 1, some with new things added. This is because I really wanted to include some of my previously created characters in the story instead of making all new ones.
So hopefully, someone out there will find this series compelling– or hot. Either is fine with me. This is only PHASE 1, meaning that I will put out more installments in the future. I’ve got plans loosely strung about in my head, but am open to suggestions. For instance, like if you guys really despise a particular character, I’ll kill them off.
However, as most of you know, I’ve left Y!Gallery. There were two reasons for this mostly. The first was that I thought their rules and the enforcing of them was too vague and arbitrary. The second was that I thought that if I spoke my mind about anything I disagreed with, I’d be suspended or banned. And I really didn’t want anything like that to happen to me– not because I’d miss out on participation or anything. More because I was afraid of what I’d do in retaliation. I have a vindictive side– most people don’t see it. But if they’d pushed me, they’d have found their computers hijacked with viruses and spam galore. So I thought it was best that I just remove myself from the situation before it escalated.
I still want to find a forum like Y! but for now, I’m going to see what this bloggin’ thing is all about. If I get a similar response to what I got from the friendly Y! users, then I’ll post sketches, finished drawing, whatever! Feel free to comment. Tell me what you like, and what you want to see.
To get the ball rolling, I’m posting this new character. His name is Marq and he is the protagonist in a new series I’m working on called “Persuasions.” It’s themed like a soap opera– only sexy and gay! Marq is a sweet, straight-laced school teacher who’s married but carries on an affair with Preston, the bad-boy anti-hero of the series.
