My Bio

Gay male digital artist working since 2007 to depict compelling male faces and physiques using 3D digital tools such as DAZ Studio. The bara genre in which Desouza works is a United States version of the storytelling and artistic style originating in Japan in the 1960s. Bara works are created by gay men intended for a gay adult male audience. This style depicts masculine (not feminized) males usually emphasizing muscles, physical health and strength, and macho men. Bara is distinctive because it depicts gay male, same-sex feelings and sexual identity of masculine, muscular men who sometimes behave in aggressive, violent, or exploitative ways towards one another. This is not about romantic gay love or lovey-dovey hearts and flowers. Bara is wild, adventurous, and unflinching in how it mirrors real life behaviors of male aggression, power trips, violent tendencies, and exploitation.

On July 4, let me spell out the dictionary definition of independence: freedom from control, influence, support, aid or the like, of others. To me, independence especially means no support or aid of others. I do not make any money from the creative works that I produce for gay adult men. I give away, absolutely free of charge, my science fiction time travel adventure with sexually explicit man-on-man scenes named Moon Men Deep Inside. My digital illustrations do not generate revenue for me. All of my illustrations (located at various places online include here at deviantART) are absolutely free of charge, too.
