The Art of Saolin1234

Saolin1234 - Hunter the Pirate

With muscles, bondage and erotically-torn clothing this image comfortably qualifies for posting at mitchmen. Saolin1234 is a relatively new arrival on the gay erotic art scene, but you can see he's already skilled as a renderer. This is - no was - a well-dressed pirate before those disembodied hands found him defenceless and that crisp neatness is a hallmark of Saolin's art.

Saolin1234 - Soldier76 Memories

His characters are refreshingly mature or at least, well beyond boyish. If fact one of his stock characters is the battle-scarred Soldier76, who is so old (!) he has to dream about the sex he used to have. Would that every man looked like this in old age, it's clearly a young man's perspective, but that does not detract from the sensitive quality of his image, nor the restrained depiction of some nice muscularity. Shorts are always a welcome ingredient for me.

Saolin1234 - Soldier 76, bareassed

In this image, Soldier 76 is allowed to show his best asset, largely unsullied by time and experience.
I have always thought the combination of a bomber jacket and bare ass would make for a sexy picture and Saolin demonstrates it here.

Saolin1234 - An Old Man's Love

I won't take my coat off, I'm not stopping!
That trusty bomber jacket seems to have done the trick for Soldier76 this time.
I think we must put the apparent age-ism down to language translation difficulties.
But I love the picture not least because it makes his scars a positive ingredient.

Saolin1234 - Thor

An attractive but fairly routine tentacle picture although the companion piece (shown below) has an innovative milking mechanism. Thor seems like a younger version of Soldier76. His shorts look great and the tentacles sliding underneath them are genuinely erotic. I like the white singlet too.
This image also has the virtue of not going for overkill, thus there's no anal or oral invasion.

Saolin1234 - Thor

 This sequel with all clothes gone (or going) shows that the tentacle creature utilises a skin-tight membrane for milking  and is secreting a gooey substance over the captive's body. I like that idea, but it primarily works for me because the captive human is extraordinarily attractive and thanks to those shorts I can imagine him as a rugby player in need of rescue from imminent probing.

Saolin1234 - Title not known (One is not enough?)

Another hero held as a captive has his clothes ripped apart as predators close in.
The olive coloured vest and socks suggest he's a military man
I like the detail of the ripped garments with broken threads projecting,
also the pec-grabbing hand.

Saolin 1234 - Anal Power Battle

This whimsical piece showing anal 'power' as a ring sport is genuinely original and provokes the imagination as you try to visualise exactly how the rules of this contest work. Is it about gripping strength or passive endurance perhaps? The little cameras capturing the state of the contestant's erections suggest it's actually about who comes first. Even then there's lots of room to speculate about tactics.

Saolin1234 - Title Not Known (Smokin'?)

This picture of a big boy relaxing with a ciggy won't appeal to everyone but I like the chunky thighs and unselfconscious projection of sexuality. Saolin's use of socks is a particularly sexy detail and to my mind he shows that a clothed crotch is no less alluring than the full monty.

Saolin1234 - Fuel Dispenser Leakage

This final character harks back to Soldier76 but he doesn't bear the same scars.
The heavy duty glove and translucent underwear say it all.

This artist's images are beautifully drawn with interesting characters.
The more interactive of these pictures suggest there may be even better to come.

More ideas for 'Seven Vintage Wonders'

I've had these nominations sent in for the Seven Wonders of the Vintage Era. My original list of sexpot vintage men depended heavily on clothes (as is my leaning) but there are some great bodies and faces in this selection! Keep 'em coming! (via my profile address)

Billy Joe Carr (WPG) nominated by 'Jakester81'

M:I'm tempted to agree, one of the cutest men ever to don a G-string (my fave image of Billy Joe)

Clint Walker nominated by 'Jakester81'

M: Yes, an impressive chest and widely lusted after. Out of the 60's TV Cowboys, I used to prefer Ty Hardin (cute) and Robert Fuller (sooo sexxxy) but I might be inclined to upsize now!

Dick Dubois (with the whip) nominated by 'Jakester81'

M: Yeah! This poolside image of Dick surely rivals Vic Siepke in my original list

Ed Fury nominated by 'Jakester81' (beauteous, he says)

M: He certainly knew how to fill out a posing pouch neatly and I could have worn my tongue out on the younger version if I ever had the chance!

Gregg Stromm (Zeus) nominated by 'Jakester81'

M: Great man, but I'd put him down as a contender for a slightly later era 80's-90's
(of which more anon!)

Richard Bennet nominated by 'Jakester81'

M: I agree, voluptuous muscle and those nipples have got to be a 'wonder'! (my wonder image of RB)

Robert Conrad nominated by 'Jakester81'

Robert Lichtenberg (Scott) nominated by Otherguise

Otherguise:- From what I can research Reinhard Lichtenberg was probably a 'straight' bodybuilder, who must have got talked into this fabulous pose. So glad he did.

M: Agreed. Great body and fab shorts, the Brian Cross variant edged it for my top 7

Rodger Smeall and Ned Jaros nominated by Mitchell

M: I overlooked this wonderful image of Rodger (or Roger) Smeall  seemingly yearning for his buddy

Rodger Smeall buttoned up nominated by Mitchell

Seven Wonders of the Vintage Era

Some of the images from years-gone-by make an indelible impression. 
They're more than just a pretty face or a great body. They've got that SeX-Factor!

These are my suggestions for the top 7 wows.
But I'd like to hear what you think, what are your incompable images of the 50's-70's?

1. Vic Siepke's G-string (1950's)

Has anyone, then or now, come up with a sexier G-string picture?
Compressing his tackle but barely covering it up,
and even then revealing all.

2. Scott's shorts featuring Brian Cross (1960's)

How did he get into them?
How was he persuaded to get into them?

3. Ledermeister's Cowboy (1970's ?)

That belt action in combination with a bulging jock pouch is soooo erotic!
I love the buttock squeeze and glimpse of jockstrap between the legs.
It's clearly exciting enough to make you spill your tea!

4. Keith Ericsson (right), with George Roth, (1960's)

Keith was cute as a kitten and George sexy as hell in those open fly shorts
These two conjured up fantasies of freedom and mischief below decks!

5. George O'Mara's Cadet (1960's)

Looking boyish and inviting in the bare basics of a uniform
Possibly the inspiration for Etienne's Cadet series
(Photo: Kris Studio)

6. Peter Berlin (1970's)

Invariably sexy, outrageous and often bizarre
with equipment aplenty to match his swagger.
A prophet of free, self-expression

7 Royale Studios Soldier-Sailor (1960's)

Fred Collins (foreground) and John Skilling
They dress each other, swap uniforms and receive punishments
in the FJSS series, 'Soldier-Sailor' sometimes known as 'The Drum'.

There must be lots of other contenders, like Mike Arlen's greasy cocks and do you remember Big John by Cain Studio bulging out of his jeans? There are no fetish bondage images here, I may publish  a separate Fetish Seven Wonders. I'd like to hear what you think, what are your incompable sexy images of the 50's-70's?

Zamok's Art - A New Exhibition at mitchmen

Zamok - Athlete Subjected to Long Term Extraction (click to enlarge)
Zamok has created this amazing new 'milking' picture to mark the launch
of a new Exhibition at mitchmen, entirely devoted to his fascinating art.
This exhibition contains all of his pictures published to date (link below).

The new piece it is infused with his usual attention to erotic (and engineering!) detail. It shows a muscular young athlete who is being held as a captive in a scientific laboratory. He is stripped naked, tightly clamped and forced to provide semen samples over and over again, day after day, stimulated by attachments and injected fluids. The bottles containing his samples accumulate in the chill cabinet behind him, but no-one will tell him what they are being collected for
..........or why he was chosen to provide them.

In this lab refusal to donate is not an option!

Mitchell's Gay Art for June

An audacious rescue attempt by a US Soldier in the steamy jungle.
He's making himself a tempting target in those sexy shorts!

I love those skimpy khaki shorts US personnel use off-duty,
  strictly speaking I'm probably misusing them in this situation.
(Comments and corrections are welcome!)

This image is tentatively pencilled in for my long-lost series "The Lost Patrol"
There are other fragments at this blog:   Captured GI, Shipping Out, Luke in the Can
('After the Storm' is a contender too)

You will see that the men in this Patrol are blessed with splendid physiques and a variety of unusual uniforms. I published a few other pictures from the series at the mitchmen Yahoo! site when it still had a photo archive, but haven't yet transferred them to the new archive at Adonis Male because I'm still deciding whether to finish the story or just keep adding new images. It looks like I'm starting to make that decision with this post!

This entire story group is of course related to my youthful obsession (recently revived) with soldiers as they are depicted in war comic imagery. This image (like Devil's Work) is one of the more interesting fruits of that idiosyncratic obsession. I suppose you'd call it 'fan art' these days and this particular image could easily morph into a superhero intervention with sexy tights if I was inclined that way.

In fact this image is closely based on the Gate-Crashing image included in my last War Comic post - Flirting With The Enemy. I've completely redrawn the hero soldier to make him sexier, but kept his original pose (and boot!). I copied the original bamboo stockade in it's entirety to enhance my figure sketch. The bamboo posts are not without phallic connections of course, those in the right foreground could be interestingly mirrored just to the right of the soldier's boot but I'll leave that to your imaginations!

'After the Storm' uses the same technique of enhancing my image with another artist's background, sadly I can't credit those contributors because I don't know their names.

mitchmen at war No18 - Flirting with the Enemy

In the last post in this series, English Captain Davis was despatched to the jungle to help a group of stranded Aussie soldiers (quite why they couldn't send an Aussie Officer isn't spelt out!). The dramatic image above is the climactic scene of his mission. Naturally, in the context of the story, this reunion is more than just a gallant rescue, because these two have 'History'.

This story has a number of nicely drawn, homoerotic images which I have extracted for this series of posts. Some are presented as originally published, some I have coloured, others I have subversively tweaked to add or enhance their gay interest.

 This picture of Davis parachuting into the conflict zone is a nice study of chunky legs and shorts. The strapping of the parachutes passing between the legs, particularly of the aircrew member on the left, also has a passing erotic interest, which you sense is not entirely accidental. Well I do!

Down in the jungle Davis meets up with an old acquaintance called Ward.
You can tell they have 'History', this discussion has all the appearance of a lover's squabble.
As in the previous scenes Davis has his hands in his pockets as if he's doing naughty touching.
The portrayal of Ward crouching by the fire is a nice study showing off his chunky arms and legs.
You can tell that this artist likes men.    

Another clash with what appears to be homoerotic undertones*. In my wilful misreading of the story this would be Ward taunting Davis after hearing about his antics with young Aussie soldiers. But the friction between the two men in the 'official' version has a different cause which resurfaces soon after this when they encounter an enemy patrol.

*to be fair, in this era, unchivalrously shooting an opponent in the back (with a gun that is) was a common way of blackening the character of fictional villains.

Ward, it transpires, is a coward. He's run out on Davis before (forgive my mischievous gay pun!). He bolted then in the face of the enemy and left Davis to take the blame for their failed mission. Now he does it again.

Notice how Davis (left) gets the hero treatment by the illustrator, trampling over the fallen enemy in another reckless charge while Ward's masculine traits are painted over with a wash of prissiness as he flees, desperately picking his way through flying bullets and tree roots and even loosing his helmet. His characterisation is so exaggerated that it's easy to mistake this figure for that of a soldier being heroically riddled with bullets, except that he's not holding a weapon, so he can't be.

As Ward flees his uniform inexplicably starts to degenerate into tears and tatters, symbolically taking away his soldierly identity and his dignity too. At this point, I perhaps ought to reassure any anxious Australian readers that Ward in the story is 100% English.
I rather like the jungle imagery here.

Eventually Ward blunders into an enemy patrol and by this time all of his equipment has gone and his clothes have been completely shredded. Those chunky arms and legs now seem to have become weak and weedy (although it's actually about right for a realistic, average, male build).

This radical transformation is a phenomenon that defies rational explanation (even in the steaming jungle) but it serves to underline his inadequacy as a soldier, transforming him into a pathetic wretch.
In this scene it also creates a tingling sense of vulnerability as he faces his worst nightmare. Notice how brief his shorts have suddenly become, a detail that surely has erotic origins in the mind of the artist.

By contrast the portrayal of the enemy soldiers in this picture is very straight-forward, showing them as formidably well equipped and trained - and well built too with a shapely backside centre stage. Views of bottoms like this are a rare phenomenon in this comic genre, they are usually hidden in shadow (as in the 'parachute' and 'run-away' pictures above) or else they're obscured by equipment like the water bottle, far right. This 'reveal' in a very masculine, open-legged stance to me seems deliberately homoerotic and it's interesting that it's assigned to an 'enemy' soldier.

This genre was often guilty of casual, racist language and I've removed a minor example from the speech bubble here, but like the previous image, this portrayal of Japanese soldiers being briefed over their evening meal also has some interesting characterisation. At first sight the geeky-looking figures in singlets seem dubious caricatures, but the artist has actually shown us an unexpected insight into the reality of conscription on both sides by portraying these soldiers as immature, slightly scrawny, young men. Their elongated slender necks are not without appeal for me but the character on the right with his cute haircut and five o'clock shadow is delightful. The Officer himself would easily pass as a GI. All in all it's an unexpectedly neutral portrayal.

 That neutrality is even more striking in this nicely drawn image where the fallen Japanese soldier is simply depicted as a typical man (attractive too, hopefully he's only unconscious!). You'll notice that he has finished up draped over one of the few boulders in the vicinity leaving his rear-end up in the air. There's an interesting visual conjunction with the rounded bottom of the retreating attacker (albeit one disguised as usual by the wealth of equipment carried by the Japanese soldier). You don't need to have my twisted mind to read homoerotic into this! I thought it deserved a better outcome.....

My plea for International Peace!
(or an International Piece)

For this variant of the image I shortened the Australian Sergeant's shorts as well as the obvious pants-down change made to the kneeling soldier.

This image comes from an earlier part of the story where Davis and Ward are still squabbling like frustrated lovers but it's obvious that the main point of interest for the artist (and us) is the Australian soldier in the foreground. He's shown as rugged and handsome, optimisticly heroic with a gratuitous dash of sex appeal in the revealing neckline (unlike Ward seen previously, he's wearing an undershirt!).  However compare this with the previous image and you'll see that the artist is not differentiating at all between the two sides, they're all men and all men are nice.

Davis and his squad attack the enemy camp and hear pleas for help coming from behind a stockade.
He deals with the obstacle in British Bulldog fashion which makes another great picture. It would lend itself to more erotic treatment with skimpier or tighter clothing.

Inside the stockade of course he finds Ward, whose captors have been giving him a hard time. Happily they've taken away the untidy remnants of his shirt and his torso turns out to be his most attractive feature so far, but it would be naive to hope to see anything more revealing in this medium. There is another image in this sequence (below) but we don't get to see exactly what happened to him.

This is a difficult perspective to draw and the artist has cheated a bit but he gets a good impression of height. I haven't altered this picture (view the uncoloured original).

I've added this scene to the 'Bizarre Punishments' subset of these articles (listed at the foot of this post) but a fetish enthusiast might consider that it's not really that bizarre!

Even in the fierce heat of battle these two find time to bicker.

This follow-up image is a bit of a car crash and inspired me to try an adaptation

 In my re-imagining, Ward is stripped of almost everything and made to wear a loin cloth which makes a sexy combo with his belt worn low and adds a element of scary ceremonial to his torture. The imperfect display of said loin, part hidden by the gun in the foreground, was pretty much forced on me by the constraints of the original frame sizing. But sometimes glimpses are more sexy.

With the enemy counter-attacking Davis relents and frees Ward. He hopes that this will persuade him to help clear his name. Ward realises he must fight for his life this time and miraculously transforms for a second time, now becoming a valiant warrior. His chunky muscles return and by standing up to fight he even seems to have assumed Davis' mantle of reckless bravery.
Unfortunately he's not got the same luck as Davis.

It makes another great image.


Once again it falls to Davis to be the rescuer.
He scoops up the wounded man and carries him under fire to a waiting evacuation boat.

Men being carried, caveman style, always makes for a sexy image, but I wish his shorts had stayed briefer!

  Fatally wounded, Ward is carried away in the rescue boat
Davis watches thinking ungenerous thoughts about his belated bravery.
Fortunately for him, Ward does clear his name before he dies.

However it's the sailor in the foreground that makes this image interesting,
check out the detailing of his neck
and imagine what might happen when Davis spots him.

The original images in this article are taken from War Picture Library No 1696 'The Darkest Hour'
The cover appears to show Ward in hero mode,but his tattered shirt syncs with a different part of the story when he's picked up by the Japanese in headlong, cowardly flight
