No Resistance WIP

You know, this is what difference using references makes to my work. This is why I say people should never be ashamed to use reference... it makes your work better! Having listened to the sage advice of *keight I went away, thought about it, and scrapped the original wip, which can be found here: [link] Harsh, yes, but sometimes, it's no good labouring with a piece when you know something isn't quite right and it gets worse the more you try to fix it.

This, however, there is no question as to whether I'll continue... I'm really happy with it so far, it captures the first real clinch these two have well. Still need to tweak Jay's face as i've settled on a shite-awful angle to get his squared off jawline in. *eyeroll* I never make things easy. Not to mention the resolution I'll be working on this at, around 5500 pixels along the height. I'll finish it.. sometime. Maybe.

Inspiration may be a form of super-consciousness, or perhaps of subconsciousness - I wouldn't know. But I am sure it is the antithesis of self-consciousness.

Fabulous! I'd really like to see this one finished, although it is kind of cool in an unfinished state. May I ask where you found the ref for this piece?

Apologies for the late reply on this.. I forget this account exists most of the time! There's no one specific ref for this pic, it's actually a medley of a lot of different pictures as can be seen here [link] Most of the istockphotos are ones I've bought specifically to finish this image (which is taking some time!)

Better late than never. ^_^
Thank you very much:love: --it looks like there's a lot of great reference photos on that site. I should look into it.

I hope you get it finished soon. ^_^

This is a really nice piece so far. I love the pose and the emotion behind it.

Even though this is a WIP, the sensuality just jumps off the screen. I can't wait to see the final version.

I should really do more to this... though I've kinda come to like it in it's really rough state.
