Art: Aquarius  
Alright, so, I couldn't find the pose I wanted with an actual model, and had to fudge it.

I know a number of Aquarians, including my mother and grandmother. Also, a friend I thought a lot about while drawing this, who was the first gay man to give me more information than I actually wanted, and who I regret losing touch with. Even if he did drive me nuts. (He found out once that mother was going to raid his room, and he had me hide his porn, diary, and dildo under my bed.)

The constellation Aquarius is that of Ganymede, who was a beautiful young man that Zeus fell in love with, and took up to Olympus to serve at the gods' table.

Aquarians are unrepentant eccentrics; It's a rare Aquarian that truly cares what the world thinks of him or his lifestyle. And if he does care, it still won't stop him from doing what he loves. He'll just start lying by omission. They're also deep thinkers, and unjudgemental, general very objective but idealistic and romantic.

They like a good cause, and will go to great lengths to help people in need, sometimes to point of driving themselves to exhaustion over it. They like getting to know people, but have the tendency to lose interest once they find out what makes them tick; they like to have mystery in their lives.

ETA: You know, the more I stare at it, the more I can see things that can be improved. God help me...

ETA 2: Fuck you, LJ. Fuck. You.

I totally like him! *stares*

Well, I don't see any 'anatomical' problems. Looks like he's half-erect (probably because he's looking at the guy from your previous picture), or is one of the men whose size doesn't change much, hard or not.

I have a question: are his legs crossed? Looks like they are because of the shadow between them and the angle of his right thigh.

Oh, good. The penis is such a weird, floppy appendage that I didn't know how it would lay on his thigh. If it had bones and joints, like any other part of the body, I could figure it out easily, but...

That friend that I mentioned above? I complained to him once (I was sixteen, he was fifteen) that I didn't know the normal proportions of the penis to the rest of the body; he said he'd measure the proportions since he was average. Five seconds later, he came out and said that his cock was nearly the entire length of his hand. I wonder if he realizes now that he's older that that is not average.

It was originally that the top knee came down, and then back up again. But I had such a hard time with the hand by it that I chopped off that section of the picture. So yeah.

Weird, floppy, but very useful.:)

You know, it depends on the size of a hand. I know men, tall and beefy, but with tiny girlish hands. And vice versa. And you can never really guess the size until the 'schlong'*grins* is erected. Some almost do not change size, some you won't even recognize, like in those pictures 'before' and 'after'.

Yup. I'd say that women don't have anything quite that unpredictable, but I guess it can be comparable when a chick has big tits. (I wouldn't know...)

No, he has quite big hands, about 20cm, probably. Italian guy, see. Tall, very dark, big hands and feet. Most likely much more of a "show-er" than a "grower." A big, nelly bottom, too.

Well, there's nothing unpredictable about big tits (but their final size). Believe the owner of a pair.

Tall, dark, big dick, AND a bottom? What a pity.

Oh hey I like this one too! (and LMAO at the "weird floppy" comment).

Gawd, how did I manage to miss so many LJ posts?? I've been doing nothing but sleeping apparently. O_o

I got to make someone uncomfortable with this, too! I'm not sure why, since the girl I showed it to is an art history major...maybe she avoids looking at the penises? Or believes that in our modern world, we shouldn't be drawing people without clothes on? I dunno.

I had a lot of fun with this, though. Even that useless garment was interesting to try. I'm becoming more and more aware what a blessing it is to be able to show the world the beautiful men I dream up.

Strange that some have a problem with nudity - I mean we all have bodies, and nudity is natural (okay maybe not in the supermarket, but geeze - lol). We don't think anything of it here, and you'll see full frontal nudity on afternoon TV. What's the big deal? I don't get it.

And I'm the same with my writing, I feel incredibly blessed to have people read my fiction and actually like it. I never dreamed that would ever happen. :)
MissTeacakesmissteacakes on April 16th, 2012 10:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah, really. It's not like it's a hardcore sex scene...he's just sitting there being gorgeous. And anyway, I think it's weirder that some renaissance artists covered it with the corners of cloth, even when it was blowing in the wind. (Sunny says things like that are "held in place by wishful thinking.")

Although, we don't get full-frontal nudity on TV, unless it's paid for like HBO or Showtime. And actually, they'll put women completely nude long before they do men. It's kind of unfair.

OMG I remember the uproar in the US when Janet Jackson flashed that ugly nipple piercing at that performance at some game. The US was going nuts...we were all like "What? It's only a boob and a nipple! Who cares?" - LOL

Yeah it's kind of unfair, but I guess they feel safer that way since your parts are so neatly tucked away. :/

Well, for one thing, that "some game" was the Superbowl. It's like equivalent of the World Cup for us. I remember it took them like...ten seconds to censor it, too. I can imagine the guys in the tech room having that moment of panic like "OMG, I'M SO FREAKED OUT, I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT KEY TO PRESS!" Tech people don't like surprises at events where the whole country is watching

But yeah, for such a liberal, forward thinking country, the US is very prudish.
Alexanderashmedai on April 16th, 2012 10:46 pm (UTC)
Oh right the Superbowl - sorry, no offense. American football isn't very well known here.
MissTeacakesmissteacakes on April 16th, 2012 10:54 pm (UTC)
Eh, it's okay. For someone who was in marching band for six years, I don't actually understand American Football works, other than what a touchdown looks like. A good portion of the country watches the game for the ads (a 30 second spot on the SuperBowl costs about $6 million now; that Darth Vader kid ad was originally made for the Superbowl, as an example of expectations of Superbowl ad quality) and the halftime show.
Alexanderashmedai on April 16th, 2012 10:58 pm (UTC)
Holy crud! Six million?! That's...*mind boggles*
MissTeacakesmissteacakes on April 16th, 2012 11:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah. That's the price companies now pay to have nearly the entire US watch an ad. So next time you see "Superbowl Ad" in a YouTube title, you know how important it was to them.
