It’s rare that I find male models on Model Mayhem, and it’s even rarer that one contacts me. But Jonny did and volunteered for the Tarot deck. Which was perfect because he had exactly the right look for my redo of the Tower Card. He was looking for some TFCD work in my style and in particular liked some of my motifs I use a lot (martial arts weapons and the comic posterization for the tarot deck). So it all worked out pretty good.
That’s not how you hold a katana. But I guess it looks more aesthetic like this *grin*
How very cool that you had a chance to shoot with a male model
wimdejonge: yeah modeling is frequently not about reality. If you look at a lot of my sword pictures, you’ll see the blade is sideways from how it should be. People stand in ways that are uncomfortable. Even kisses are overposed for effect.
Besides it’s a wonderful phallic symbol… whether it was intended to be or not. Well done, I say!
