Just wait until we have the vr 3d
Can't wait :)

For a moment, I was thinking you had started a 'spot the 7 differences' thread!;)
It was a bit like that :)

And on that note, we'll take a brief break from the trip down memory lane. Here is a brand new manip I did for one of our members. It takes the form of a before and after, and a wide and narrow angle view. Spot the differences.

Context, German warrior suffering a form of sacrifice in the Roman arena. The lady is a priestess, handy with a blade.

Back to 2012, and into 2013, another productive year

ph164 I liked the body, gave it a new head and face, and a background, I think it works.
ph165 Playing around with nude beaches and public punishments
ph166 } The following are pictures playing with classical style paintings, I really
ph167 } liked the way they came out
ph168 } Taking this to the next step, and putting them in
ph169 } a gallery
ph170 } I liked how these turned out as well
ph171 These two are variations
ph172 on a public crucifixion, or a realistic passion play
ph173 The Romans failed to catch the pirates, but they found and punished their women

Ph171 and 172 are very nice, with the tree just partially obscuring the arm of the cross, they don't look like manips at all! :)

The Romans failed to catch the pirates, but they found and punished their women

They know they don't need to chain or tie us,
or manhandle us to the crosses.
They are everywhere ...
our men nowhere ... far at sea, perhaps already lost.

There's nowhere to run, no point in resisting.
Being a pirate's bride was one could say a choice
(even if, for some of us only a slit throat and dumped into the sea would have been the alternative)
... still a choice, with some benefits we've had, now we pay.

Don't judge us too harshly, we did try to grab our weapons and fight,
but there were so many of them, they were so strong,
and they came in the darkest hour.

We've spent the dawn and morning under their command,
tearing down our cabins,
where we'd hoped to raise families,
so there will be wood for bodies to hang from ... for us to squirm on...
our children destined now to grow up slaves of Rome.

Now it's time,
just one more moment,
then we'll split up and go to our fate.
For each of us at the waterline,
our death-cross waits, eager to drink our lives,
looking out to Rome-owned water.

One last time the sand under our bare feet and between our toes,
soft and sinking first, firmer then when the calmly lapping waves are near.
The last ground our feet will walk upon.

I'll get up on the barrel and lift my arms up high,
they'll rope me tightly and let me hang,
as my crucifier steps up, and nails sink between my bones.
Then they'll let me hang screaming,
till I beg them to nail my feet,
which they'll gladly do.

And then remains the hard work of dying,
crying, thirsting, burning, squirming,
slowly drowning,
staring out across a silver sea,
suffer under godless sky.

Still 2013

ph174 this one came about because I noticed a resemblance between a reasonable well known crux lady and the lady looking at pictures in this photo
the back story was that she was the lady of the manor and her latest portrait might startle the weekend tourists
ph175 Tied by the wrists and nailed through the palms
ph176 These next three were inspired by the girls, I don't remember why now, someone must have posted them as potential victims
ph177
ph178
ph179 This one was a long time coming. For years I had wanted to illustrate a story by Severianus Latro, the Punic Cross, which I first read in 1999. Finally I decided that this girl offered a reasonable launching point for a manip. Here's the story https://www.cruxforums.com/xf/threads/the-punic-cross.3657/#post-108795
ph180 I don't remember the backstory here, devotees of the crucified virgin?
ph181 Prison punishment
ph182 Chinese justice

The next pic requires another pic to make sense of it, so that's it for today I've hit my limit

My favorite amonog these even before reading the notes.
I've only now read 'The Punic Cross' ... it was posted during a time I wasn't active on the forums ... anyway the Phoenician cities might be a setting that could be more often represented ...

View attachment 901534 The pic keeps giving me the creeps, since the priestess's looks ressemble a good friend of mine.
The day she will show up in such a red dress, I better be vigilant and cover my balls!:eek:
I don't know, Lox, it could be the start of an interesting role play - just don't take it too far!

ok, 2013 still.

ph183 The original is not mine, but it inspired me to change it around so that the victim was female rather than male, I think it worked.

Great works, I especially like ph 186, 2 variations of Trafalgar, Titulus at her feet is amazing. Nice artworks sir.
