human ugliness


     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.

  1. I can see why you'd suspect that. The smudges near the top DO look like fingerprints. But that's not blood. As you and I and Johnny the Homicidal Maniac already know, it changes color when it dries ; >

  2. I'm not sure why this is human ugliness. ???

    Being an owner of once such object, I see it as great gift. It's like a free candy bar whenever you want! You don't have to go to the store. You don't have to pay anyone for it. Just you and some alone time and Bippity Boppity Boo!!! Of course one of my favorite games is race to the orgasm. It doesn't matter who gets there first, everybody wins!

    Artistically, I am enjoying the background texture and the experimental texture on the cock itself. The red coloring doesn't bother me too very much as they are happier when they are filled with blood. :-)

    I would also like to take a moment to celebrate the phrase “self-indulgent cock painting”!

  3. I often title my posts AFTER I've typed them up. I used human ugliness more in reference to the rape and murder this brought to mind, as I saw this more as a cock COVERED in blood rather than filled with it. I agree there's nothing ugly about a cock in of itself. What some people DO with their cocks, however, can definitely be considered ugly and malevolent.

  4. Definitely looks like real blood! Well done. I'm in love with all the texture going on here. In the background it reminds me of a wall of peeling paint. That which one might find in some nasty basement of an abandoned house in a bad part of town where a rape or murder might take place. It adds an eerieness that is perfect for the whole mood of it all.

  5. You may not believe this, but when I finished this and was letting it dry, I actually looked at the spots that didn't have any paint and wondered what others might think they were. I just saw blank spots on the paper from where I didn't press hard enough while transferring the paint. Thanks for the perspective.
