This was my entry for the Rugby Days contest. South Africa does not have much of a jockstrap culture, not like America where according to Jockalot - the jockstrap was a rite of passage growing up. Luckily things are changing and jockstraps are slowly becoming available here.

Human Anatomy Lessons

Found a great resource that teaches you how to draw the human figure. The Structure of Man Blog has video lessons on all aspects of human anatomy. All the lessons are also available on DVD. I have only watched a few but it looks pretty good...

Artus Interruptus

One of the projects I was working on before the original file got corrupted. The four images are all that is left and shows how far it progressed. Guess I may get back on the horse and finish it one day but it will mean starting all over again. Damn!

The art of Felix d'Eon

Based in San Francisco, Felix's work is collected the world over, by individuals who marvel at his technical abilities, appreciate his mastery of the male form, enjoy his classical narrative scenarios, and enjoy the pleasures afforded by his beautiful models.

Felix d'Eon was born in Guadalajara, Mexico to a Mexican mother and a French father. He attended the Academy of Art University, a school that emphasizes classical technique, and he graduated with honors. He put himself through school and worked for some years afterwards as an artist’s model, but has recently found some measure of success as an artist, and has decided to devote himself full time to his craft.

Be sure to visit his website at and support this contemporary master of classical art.

Graphite Pecs

Not completely realistic... some features like the arms, eyes and mouth have been exaggerated to give it a bit more of a cartoon style. Also tried to make the shading a bit more smooth without any definite pencil lines. I enjoy leaving large parts unfinished as it adds a bit of contrast I think. Pencil on A4 paper that has been yellowed in the South African sun. The image above has been desaturated, the original is below (smaller version) but you can't really see the silvery effect of the graphite pencil properly.

Talented Boy

Damn! Wish I this started this doodle on a better piece of paper. Tried to redo it, but just can't seem to get the same line quality on normal paper. So here is the original in its unedited naked glory. Also, don't really want to get in the habit of drawing oversized dicks but the inspiration for this pencil sketch was pretty talented. Hmmm, maybe a fig leave would have been in order...

Saturday, November 04, 2006


Not sure if I can allow myself to swear on my own blog. So I am working on a few different projects at the same time, trying different techniques etc. Then disaster struck - many of my files mysteriously corrupted themselves overnight. With the new tools my projects are getting more ambitious and the files dramatically larger. Will teach me to save multiple copies in the future. Best to get back on the horse and start over again... Sigh!


This was a test to see how I could migrate my drawing of the seated guy and give it a more painted look in Photoshop. The background is maybe a bit over the top, but it seem to work.

New Profile Logo

Finally got around to making a logo for the profile image. It is supposed to acknowledge the nice and the naughty sides of my personality. Somewhere between the two there is a sort of balance. Anyway, I have nowhere else to host it so I have posted it here to be able to set it as my profile image.

Personal Collection

Oil painting by local artist Rudolph Vosser. This is the only piece of original male art by another artist in my possession at the moment. Hopefully I will be able to acquire more original art and start a serious erotic art collection one day. Oil on canvas board, 20 x 25cm.

Seated Dude

Unfinished pencil sketch on paper that has been Photoshopped to death by yours truly. Sort of a weird experiment - realistic shading on a cartoon style character. (Click to enlarge)

Poolboy II

Another version of the poolboy. Same tan but a bit more detail on the face and some color on the background elements.

Wishes do come true!

Still needs a bit of work...

Falcon God

Pencil sketch of Horus done some time ago. The original drawing has been lost (or stolen) and all that remains is this lousy photo.

How do you write descriptive titles for these drawings without making them sound cheesy? Pencil sketch on A4 paper. (Click to see a larger version)

Hypnos II

Just can't stay away from the mythological themes. An elaboration on the previous Hypnos, but this time I wanted to concentrate on the face only, trying to give him more classical and noble features. Completely ignoring any rules about accurate proportions and shading for fear of overworking it (as I often do) - the drawing came out much 'looser". The idea was to make him more magical, like a fleeting image remembered from a dream. (Click to enlarge)

Saint Fella

Another attempt at digital illustration in Photoshop... this one took forever to complete. Lots of smudging individual color layers around the canvas. At the moment I am still experimenting with different techniques - hopefully a style will emerge that I can one day call my own. The hands and forearms got too complicated and looked messy. So I cheated and covered it up with a gradient on the body out of pure frustration and ended up liking the effect. Adds a bit of contrast - a lot of times these "accidents" have pleasing results.

Figure Study

Process: Thought it may be interesting to track the development of this pencil sketch.

Step 1: Rough pencil drawing.
Step 2: Outline transfered to coloured paper.
Step 3: Switched to coloured pencil for the shading.

Final: The final image needed to be a lot more detailed. Also, darkened the shadows some more and added a few highlights with white pencil for the final touch. (Click to enlarge)

Interview with Stefan

Where are you from originally? I'm French. I live in Paris.

What inspires you? My main sources for inspiration, as you may have gathered from my images, are vintage comics, commercials, ads, etc... I have the greatest interest in everything from the 40's/50's: cars, architecture, movies, paintings and any kind of pop culture of the era, including the "totalitarian art" from the time. Nothing about ideology in this, of course, just aesthetism.

Could you tell us some more about your art? Well... all the above, is re-arranged with a strong gay erotic overtone in my images, but also, hopefully, some humor, sometimes. All this stuff is just fun and not be taken seriously...

Which artists have influenced you, and how? Again, the influence mostly comes from pop culture: SuperHeroes comics, vintage sci-fi, etc... but I guess I find inspiration, too, in the painters and sculptors I like and admire the work of. Could be the great classic French from the XVII th/XVIII th centuries, American painters and illustrators like Hopper or Parrish, or Art Deco artists like Lempicka, just to name a few.

What is your favorite medium? My work is entirely CGI. Most images include 3D elements, but I use less and less 3D, only as a basis and in a very "unconventional" way, I think. The largest part of my work is made with "traditional" digital graphic tools. I just can't get enough of the infinite possibilities they offer. Not a day where I do not try a new effect, a different technic...

Did you have any formal training as an artist? I've graduated at the French National School for Beaux-Arts.

What do you do for fun (besides art)? Art is fun!

What are your current projects? I am currently working on a retrofuture set. I find the retrofuture concept to be fascinating... at the moment, at least ! Enjoy...

Be sure to check back soon for more of Stefans brilliant work...

Beefy Dude

Gotta love a hunky guy with lots of attitude. My favorite drawing so far, just struggling get it digitized properly. Scanning it was not very successful, had to take a photo instead. Pencil sketch on A4 paper. (Click to enlarge)

Champion No.1

A young amateur boxer hoping to become the champ one day. The very first attemp at digital coloring from a scanned pencil sketch. Original idea came from an Greek boxer image found somewhere on the web. (Click to enlarge)

Hypnos in blue jeans

Pencil drawing on A4 paper. In Greek mythology, Hypnos was the god of sleep. His twin brother was Thanatos (Death) and their mother was the goddess Nyx (Night). Hynos has always been my favourite mythological character and I like the idea of Sleep and Death being related somehow. Could also because I have a thing for twin brothers. Tradionally he should have his eyes closed but I guess we don't have to stick to the rules. (Click to enlarge)

Big smile!

My first pencil drawing to be published on the web. Reasonably happy with this one, but it still needs some work. Pencil on A4 paper, scanned, cleaned up a bit and added a tinted background in Photoshop.

In the beginning...

So I just created my first blog. Now what? Should not take long to figure out how the whole thing works. The idea is to have a space to publish some of my own work as well as exhibit the work of others. There are many talented artists out there, all of them creating brilliant Erotic Gay Art, Gay Comics and Homoerotic Paintings - I aim to showcase their talents here for your viewing pleasure. Hope you enjoy!
