Loyal watchers, you may have been surprised by my recent uncharacteristic output. No, I have not given up 3D rendering in favor of becoming a morph artist. I just wanted to mix things up a bit.
I have dabbled in BBW photo manipulation for a long time, though it's rarely been successful enough to merit public display. Any else remember this crappy old software called Kai's Power Goo? Man, I churned out some monstrosities with that. Of course I've tried my hand at the typical WG morphs done on slim models, but I've really done best with additions to photos of women who were already plus-size: putting ice creams or other goodies in their hands, making them stand on scales, stuff like that.
In recent times I've done a few of these things fairly competently for my personal amusement. When I got a dynamite idea for the Cleo Fernandes piece, I decided it was time to try tossing a few of these into my dA gallery. I've had some technical frustrations with DAZ Studio crashing on me of late, so this is a good time to give the McIntyre gals a vacation. Photoshop work is a big part of my usual work anyway, especially on series like Fati Seduction and Fatkini Season. I'm no digital retouching professional, for sure, but I don't think I suck like I used to anymore.
The point of reluctance I have in posting these manips is not my abilities, though: it's the fact that I'm using real models and celebrities. I know my Lard Biscuit Hot Chicks pages have been seen by some of the women posted there, and some may end up seeing these Photoshop jobs. The copyright holders and photographers may not be pleased, but I'm more concerned about offending the ladies themselves. Especially if my photos get taken out of context and abused elsewhere online to ridicule them or fat women in general. That's always the danger with the Internet, and frankly I'm surprised I haven't yet seen stolen Misty images in "One Weird Trick to Lose Belly Fat" ads.
I got the ball rolling with a holy goddess trio of plus-size models: Denise Bidot, Cleo Fernandes and Tara Lynn. Candidates for future appearances include Mariesther Venegas, Mizuki Tama, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence, Caro Emerald, and maybe a Kardashian or two.
So anyway, I hope these doctored photos can be viewed as harmless entertainment and no one gets offended or hurt. At best, I hope viewers will see whether I use my digital characters or photographs of beautiful women, the same lighthearted and fun Lardmeister style comes through, with good will towards all.
P.S. Check out the awesome Misty tribute drawn by the talented berserker1133! I will be doing a version of his cute Lucy character in my return to the DAZ format, very soon.
