Last week I came across a concept that I hope will grow and grow and grow.
Maybe many of you know that I, beachelf
, who manages this group, live w/ my partner JonJon74
in north Florida. We have enjoyed visiting Orlando and partying at the club The Pulse which was shot to bits last month. Neither governments or educational institutions or even religions are able to stop events such as that one in Orlando, or the one in Paris last year. So.. Really.. What can I do?
Well.. This last week I came across this deviation here on dA..
Hands Before Guns Contribution
I felt a touch of hope pass through my heart as I considered the message on this deviation. I believe this is an impromptu campaign that may have potential. It’s simple actually. There's no one collecting money. There's no one to whom we swear allegiance. It's just us, people from all over the world, saying that we stand together in building a world w/ our hands before reaching for guns. And what do we do? For starters.. Let's flood the internet w/ images containing the "Hands before guns" logo and hashtag. #HandsBeforeGuns
And now.. Let's feature a few artists who have recently entertained us, here in this group, by showing us awesome masculine images displaying beautiful affection between men.
One of most favorite artists showing us digital drawings.. silverjow
I have read that the great artists such as Michelangelo meticulously measured the arms, legs, necks, torsos of numerous men hoping to construct a "perfect" sculpture. I believe that 3D rendering has enabled artists to do this very thing, that is, show the world a perfect masculine body. And one of my most favorite artist of such media is.. Aniwayalone
Using a specialized form of digital art called "Vector".. harckonnen
Taking a look at tradition media.. shharc
Moving to photography.. I was more than delighted to see recent deviations from this artist, after a three year hiatus.. zakharova
Personally.. I adore drawings of ultra handsome men embraced in passion! Pandaphobia
And my heart melts when I see photographic captures of beautiful affection. DanOstergren
And to close this feature.. I have been completely blown away by the images recently brought to us by.. male2male
