There are a couple of reasons why I had to get these pics up on the blog here.
I know that I’ve bitched and complained about some incredibly over-the-top photo shop work on some other gorgeous guys before, but there is a big difference between doing it a little to try to fool people, and then using it as an art form in itself.
I know a few artists, and one of the guys I know is a master when it comes to digital art. He’s a bit of a goth guy, a punk rocker, so a lot of his work is dark and mysterious. But even he appreciates some of the work of other erotic artists.
So in my opinion, these images of the gorgeously muscled Carlos Villar are both really sexy and pretty creative too. You can definitely tell there’s been quite a bit of image manipulation on these pics, but it’s not hidden.
It hasn’t been done to make him slimmer, or more muscled, or to give the impression that he has flawless skin. It’s been done because it makes the pictures look dreamy, it makes them different and it really highlights the creativity of the photographer as an artist.
I love male nude photography, but I have to confess that the artist in me loves these digital manipulations of that erotic male art form too.
