Two guys wearing sailor hats and wrestling singlets sharing a kiss by the docks. In the background, battleships can be seen from a distance, all depicted in oil paintings inspired by American Realism, à la John Singer Sargent.

I’ve decided to incorporate the styles of various LGBT artists into my works, and John Singer Sargent is one of them on my list. You can expect to see more artists in the future, though the influence might not be immediately obvious.

The reason behind this decision stems from a comment made by a mentor. While I prefer to keep my identity semi-anonymous here, I shared my works with a few people I know and respect in real life, including some who identify as gay. This particular mentor happens to be a highly esteemed designer, having served as the creative director for several well-known brands you encounter daily. He’s also gay, and I consider myself fortunate to have met him during my freshman year in college.

My Master and Apprentice series, in a way, explores the experiences I’ve had with men like him — men who’ve entered my life and taught me invaluable lessons about both life and this profession, all due to chance encounters in online communities that bring us together.

I forgot to enable ADetailer for these renders, but in the end, the differences are not too big, since most of their eyes are closed anyway. I usually prompt for closed eyes for my Kiss series, since it always look awkward if someone’s eyes are open during a kiss.
