Daily Deviation

Given 2014-07-07
061914 - 13.2 by DixSteele There is something delightfully fetishistic about this otherwise classical art nude that makes it highly intriguing. ( Featured by Nyx-Valentine )

It's strange, minus the accessories it's a regular nude, but with the hat, boots and handcuffs it takes on a different meaning, great work! :)

Because of the reasons listed in the DD description box. If you have further questions or concerns about why I featured something, feel free to note me.

I'm a straight girl, but the homoerotic subcultures with beefcakes in leather and halfway nude uniforms are such a turn-on for me. This guy's muscles look great in this modest but sensual pose... well done!

I couldn't agree more!
I'm a straight guy who always thought those leather/nudes were incredibly sensual, and could never understand why they weren't appreciated more outside the Gay community. Even the photographer who took this thought it was, well, kinda' goofy! They were my props and gear that we decided could be incorporated into the image. I took the photo and cropped it, stripped out the color, and adjusted the levels to get the classical "Look" and deep shadows.
  Thanks for the appreciation

Ah! That is so cool to hear from another straight person! I always got the weirdest looks from my chick friends when I was younger because they'd be all over teen idols who are thin with nice hair, and I'm drooling over macho guys in leather chaps, haha. I'm a comic artist and in my designs I like to use a lot of leather belts and straps and muscular men, so seeing a photo like this makes me want to get my pencil out and start drawing, especially models with such clear musculature!

You have a beautiful body!! I'm sure you work very hard to maintain this look, and it is very much appreciated! (and your name is great, haha)

Thanks Again!
  Actually, I'm an erotic artist, and if you look through my other folders, you will see that my art is done in a comic book style. I'm 60 years old, and my earliest artistic influences were comic books, specifically Marvel comics, from the early to mid-60's (Especially Jack Kirby)
  In those comics, there were ads for muscle building courses. I sent away for some around 1968, and was introduced to bodybuilding magazines (They were very hard to find in those days) Some of the earliest magazines I saw featured an outlandishly muscled specimen from Austria whose name was hard to pronounce, Arnold Something or other...
  Also, I've spent the last 22 years working as an artist's model. There are, quite literally, 1000s of images of me floating around out there...

Oh cool! It's neat to hear how comics have an influence on people!

I think I'm the only girl I know who gets "excited" by the old Arnie as Conan movies. I have such a barbarian fetish thanks to those flicks, haha. He was just so big and strong and manly... and no body hair! Always a plus. My husband is Asian (I live in Japan now) and he knows what I like and tries to get burly for me, but bless his 140 pound soul, I just don't think he has the right physical makeup for it (he's at the gym right now, actually, haha).

Wow! Now I'm really impressed that you've kept your physique in tip-top shape for so long! In this photo your face was covered so I couldn't tell your age. Simply amazing!
