I know, I know. Here I go again with the cocks but this ended up being more than just an immature, self-indulgent cock painting. I mean, sure, it STARTED that way but (as you can see) it ended up being pretty dang artsy fartsy, especially for me. The colors really came together pretty well, if I do say so myself. The blood vessel look came from simply sandwiching a liberal amount of paint between two sheets of watercolor paper and applying some smoothing pressure with a heavy metal ruler I had laying around. It’s a really fast, fun technique to use and (depending on the colors you use) the texture ends up looking like blood, leather, vegetation, etc.
As for content, I think this turned out pretty obscene. I’m definitely no stranger to obscenity in my art but there’s something about the vivid red from the acrylic just makes me cringe a little, like I just witnessed, well… a rape. Or a murder. Or both. Yeah, a little nauseous maybe. Heh, maybe I shoulda saved this for the OPG. The best horror always includes more than a little real, human ugliness in it.
