2007 saw the other Jennifer Connelly manip, and then there is a leap to 2011 when it can be said that I started doing manips regularly again, and posting them. Ph121 and ph122 have not been posted in public before now.

ph121 the second Jennifer Connelly pic
ph122 when actresses go bad, part 1
ph123 a tribute to Taryn, on the 10th anniversary of 911. I think this was the first manip I posted in public after my long break
ph124 I had fun with this, it was supposed to be an old Chinese postcard around Boxer Rebellion time, and showing missionaries/foreigners
ph124a crucified in Peking*. Look carefully and you will see 3 figures, two westerners and a Chinese, two men and a woman
ph124b a, b and c show details of the main picture
ph124c well, I had fun and that's what matters :)
ph125 when actresses go bad, part 2
ph126 these were relevant to events that were occurring
ph127 around that time

* anyone remember the film 55 Days At Peking ?

Yep! With Ava Gardner!

I like that 'Chinese postcard'.
Thanks Lox. I had fun doing it. I did a similar one much earlier, further up this thread.

So, I started again in 2011, and then the years 2012 and 2013 were quite fruitful, as we will see. This next set is more heavily male crux, with a lot of passion play inspired pics. Imagine performing in ph134, perhaps in front of friends, family, neighbours, that cute girl you like . . . . . .

ph128 an early attempt at the classical genre, with a small modification.
ph129 one of those reality competitive shows as it should have been
ph130 more modified art
ph131 this one is quite important to me, but is superceeded by a later version that I prefer, it's intended to be respectful (based on Oberammergau)
ph132 based on the Badlands Passion Play, with obvious mods. You will see this manip in the background of a couple of Markus' pics
ph133 Last Temptation, with the legs spread and equipment visible dangling between
ph134 an outdoor Passion Play with added nudity
ph135 Jesus Christ Superstar with nudity, I like to image performances like this with added authenticity, what an impact it would have

Shit! I did everything right. I played the game according to the rules, was loyal to my team ... and look what happened! The reality show bastards got together behind my back and voted to have me stripped naked and crucified! No fair!

Well, technically they didn't actually vote you off the island.:p:doh::D

2012 was a bumper year, with many manips posted, and some experiments may not have been. The first ones here were a bit of an experiment, I'm not sure if it worked, variations on a theme

ph136 playing
ph137 around
ph138 with
ph139 dark imagery
ph140 adapted from a well known Xena scene, new figure
ph141 a member crucified, he features in several other manips by me and others
ph142 that Xena scene again but male
ph143 having a bit of fun
ph144 I like this one, I've used the background more than once
ph145 and I like the idea behind this one, why shouldn't these works be in a gallery?

The #136 to #139 work very well!:clapping:

The #145 : on display in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp? (likely virtual since the museum is currently closed for renovation).

Well, I for one think that 136 to 139 work very well, especially the last two!
Thanks, there are a few more in that style to come.

ph146 The Last temptation, enhanced
ph147 the final blow (a member as model)
ph148 girls, we know what you are doing at home
ph149 revisited with one of Welsh Webb's lovelies
ph150 Last Temptation again, showing a little more than the film did
ph151 more variations on
ph152 a theme
ph153 I don't remember why I did these last two, Eul can you remember the context?
ph154 Two framed and captive Eulalias, I rather like the way this one came out. Some may recognise this as my avatar on Deviantart

Yes, I soon spotted them, I think my eyes are programmed now to spot naked, crucified figures even from a great distance in fuzzy black and white.

On the theme of the Boxer Rebellion, see Gerembeau's story now posted:

2012 was a productive year.
This next lot seem to be entirely male :)

ph155a two variations on a modified model of the crucifixion
ph155b showing different levels of exposure - me playing around I suppose
ph156 the next two are based on photos donated by a member
ph157 -
ph158 And so are the next two flogging scenes (different member obviously)
ph159 -
ph160 The next four are also based on contributions by another member, suitably anonymised
ph161 I rather like the idea of putting the art on a wall to be viewed
ph162 variations of open and closed legs
ph163 - there were other manips based on this member but they were not for public viewing, sorry
