If you wish, please use my image/stock to create artistic imagery. I very much enjoy being a part of the artistic creative process as a model and am highly motivated to do it with no other direct reward than the opportunity to see the result.
However, please do not use my image to create pornographic/erotic imagery. I love figure-based art and believe in the beauty that it possesses and am saddened to think that such would ever be debased.
I believe that every single part of all human bodies is inherently wonderful and beautiful. And, all we have to do to see that is to open our minds to it. Let's open some minds, if we can!
I've been thinking about the idea of featuring other deviants
here in my journal occasionally, hoping those who watch me wouldn't mind if I did. I'm grateful to each of you who do watch, and do not wish to bother anyone by sharing these entries. However, I would very much like to recognize those who've supported and helped me and made wonderful artwork using my stock as reference
. Of course recognizing everyone at once would be challenging at best and definitely impractical. So, I suppose this will be a first experiment for me, and I hope and expect I'll probably do similarly and/or more, occasionally and with time.
So, all of that said now, and if I may, I would like to direct anyone so inclined's attention to a good friend of mine, namely Andrew ~Andrew310
Andrew and I have shared a passion for and interest in art modeling for some time now, and have managed to meet in person on a couple of occasions over the past couple of years for just a few days. On both of those occasions, we of course took advantage of opportunities to create art reference (stock) images, each of us taking turns both in front of and behind the camera. Specifically, I might note these (stock) deviations of mine that are currently included in my gallery for all of which Andrew was behind the camera at the time:
Andrew is the editor of an art site called Artist-Perspectives. He has conducted 14 interviews of various artists, many of which I also consider good friends of mine, and which can be found on his Artist-Perspectives site, along with a few other articles. The interviews talk about how the artists got started, what inspires them, and tries uncover some insights about their personality and style. I hope you'll find the site of interest. Artist-Perspectives is a hobby for Andrew, and is updated sporadically. [link]
In addition, if you wish, you may see the work of 16 artists who have drawn or painted Andrew as an art model at [link]
Offering my personal thanks and gratitude to Andrew for his friendship, support and help as photographer as well as my thanks to all who took the time to read through this, I hope it was worthwhile to you,
