I like being looked at.

I had high hopes for this picture when I found it.  It's such a feminine activity, putting on makeup.  The caption turned out okay, but it's not my best work.  I do like the soft colors of the background though.  It kind of invites you to relax and just go with it.

Hope you like it.

A New Way

I wrote this caption a few weeks ago, and I have to say, I really like the idea.  I admit that sometimes I get caught up in the back story of my captions.  I can't help it.  I always want to make everything "make sense."  So I find myself concocting these alternate histories/futures where my captions and stories achieve that goal. 

Rather than try to focus on that world-building in a caption which should tell a simple story, I chose to make a caption telling the history.  And I think it works magnificently well.  The picture is very sexy and the caption tells an interesting back story.

For some reason, I love making these kind of plaid backgrounds.  They aren't easy to get right, but I do like the way they turn out.

Hope you all enjoy this one.

I just wanna dance!

I think I enjoyed making this background more than I liked writing the caption or selecting the picture.  I'm not certain why either -- it was actually a really simple process. But I think it just turned out well.

Take a hint!

I did not do a very good job on this picture.  It's the water -- it makes it so hard to get things right.  I almost didn't use it, but I decided to write a caption anyway.  Well, as it turns out, I love the caption.  So, I'll just ask for you to use your imaginations.

It was your idea.

There's something about the background for this particular caption which I absolutely adore.  The picture and the photo go reasonably well together, too, so that's a plus.  I hope you all like it.

Bunny

This photo was really well done, I think.  And the caption was easy to write.  It sort of just flowed. 


Happy Thanksgiving!

"Male" Prostitute

I was watching an episode of HBOs "Hung" the other day, and I got the idea for this caption.  For those who don't know, the show is about a man who becomes a male prostitute with a female pimp.  Role reversal aside, it's a pretty good show, and some of you may be interested in the fact that it had a TG-related pair of episodes recently.  Anyway, I got the idea for this caption.

The picture isn't my best manipulation, but it's far from my worst. I absolutely love the background, though.

I hope you all like it.

Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover...

I really enjoyed writing this caption.  The picture is fun, and the little story fits it perfectly.  And the background was interesting to create.  Hope you all like it.

Yay! It's published!

It's done.  I finished it today, so I figured I'd go ahead and publish A Warrior Reborn on Smashwords.  The way Smashwords works is that the work is available immediately online via its listing on Smashwords (in a variety of formats -- HTML, ePub, etc.), but it takes a week or two to become available on individual devices such as the Kindle, iPads, iPhones, etc. 

So if you decide to read it on your computer, I recommend that you download the Kindle viewer, and read that version.  It's the best in terms of formatting. 

As to the content, the first 60% of the book is previously available here or on Fictionmania.  The last 40% is all new material, and wraps up the tale. 

I put it up for 2.99 -- the book is on par with other erotic fiction (even cheaper than some) and contains quite a bit more content than is typical.  Either way, I hope you all get the chance to read it.

The link to the book is as follows:

A Warrior Reborn on Smashwords

Life After Stardom

I wrote this caption before I had a picture, and I think it's a nice twist on the "actress going into porn" stereotype.

The Cover Art for A Warrior Reborn

I've finished the cover art for A Warrior Reborn.  Followers of this blog will probably recognize that the source image (which I overlaid with my my own painting) was used in a previous blog post.  I think it's changed significantly enough that I don't mind reusing it.  Anyway, I'd definitely like to get your opinions on it before publishing.

Here it is.

How do nice guys finish again? Oh yeah...

I like the idea of a backfired plan.  It's just fun to imagine the unintended consequences of a schemer's plans.  This caption focuses on that theme.

A Warrior Reborn is completely finished now (I might put in an epilogue, but I haven't decided). All I have to do now is formatting and cover art.  So, we're on schedule for a Tuesday 11/22 release.

On another note, I wanted to acknowledge that we passed 100 followers here.  Yay!

Life-Changing Choices

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Was it a mistake? Or was it a clever plan? The world may never know.

When I saw this picture, I knew immediately what the caption would look like.  It took a LOT of modification, but I finally tailored the picture to fit the dialogue I had in mind.  And I think it turned out wonderfully.

I fully intended to save this caption for a more appropriate date (Valentine's Day), but I just couldn't help myself.  I'm impatient.  That's just the way I am.  I guess I'll just have to make another Valentine's Day themed caption in February.

Househusband

Usually, when I do role-reversal, I tend to set it in a world where it's widespread.  Men are feminine and women are masculine.  However, there is something that can be said for the isolated reversal where a particular husband and wife switch roles for their own reasons.  This is one of the latter.

Fans have to watch something, right?

This is one of my favorite captions I've done because it follows a logical (if far-fetched) progression from a real-world issue, and it ends up with something of a role reversal trend. 


The picture is also  a very good piece of work (I don't mind tooting my own horn when I think I deserve it...which isn't very often).  I'm quite proud of this piece, and I hope you all like it as much as I do.

Beauty has no gender.

This picture actually took quite a bit of modification, but I think it turned out fantastically.  I really like the idea that eventually, the idea of the beautiful, feminine man will one day become mainstream.  If it did, I imagine that publications such as Playboy would feature male models.  In the realm of my fictitious ad campaign, it's not a stretch that those models would then speak up, and urge other boys to follow in their footsteps.

I know this might be getting a little far afield from my normal captions, but I do really enjoy making these little advertisements.  I hope you like them too.

Another Sissy and Proud Advertisement

I love the idea of an activist group which promotes the idea of male femininity.  We're not quite there yet as a society, but it can't be that far off.  There are groups which advocate acceptance of nearly every other demographic -- why not boys who are, by nature, feminine?  Too often, those boys (and their female counterparts who are masculine) are forced by our society to conform to the traditional views of how their gender should comport themselves.

So, I made up a little fictitious ad campaign promoting the acceptance of feminine boys (dubbed sissies).  The campaign is named Sissy and Proud.  Do I think such a campaign would be as risque as I like to make it?  Of course not.  But I can't help myself.

Anyway, here's the banner/billboard.

Feminization Station's Believe It or Not

There's something so emasculating about a boy who sits to pee.  I'm not sure what it is, but there it is.  I wanted to stick with the sissy in denial theme for a few more captions, and I think this one does the trick.  Hope you all like it.

A First Attempt at a Motion Caption Story

I hope this video turned out okay.  I've watched it a couple of times, and while I like it, I'm well aware that it is far from perfect (the transitions, specifically aren't a little abrupt.  I really liked the source video, and I enjoy the extra oomph that a video (as opposed to a picture) can bring.  That said, it's a pretty basic story coupled with a very sexy little video. 

I wish I had the time/energy to create a little animation for you all. It would be so much easier to start from scratch rather than having to use existing material that only *mostly* fits what I'm looking for. 

Anyway, I hope to get better in the future.

Another Milestone

I just wanted to say thank you all for coming to this little blog on a regular basis.  We've hit 200,000 page views, which I think is incredible for how young this site is.  Keep 'em coming, and I'll keep give you all new material.

It was supposed to be just a gag.

I wanted to continue with this latest theme with a caption about a boy who goes out with female friends, resulting in unintended consequences.

Suck it up.

I really loved this picture, and the caption is simple but effective.  Lately, I've been trying to branch out from the feminization as revenge captions.  I like the idea of these boys who just can't help themselves.  Hope you like it!

A Public Service Announcement

I couldn't resist posting this as soon as I got through with it.  It only took me about 20 minutes (taking a break from real work!), and I think it's so simple and elegant.  The only tricky part was to get the background to blend with the picture. The idea was to emulate a billboard you might see driving down the interstate, and I think it fits the bill quite nicely.

I love writing stories, usually the longer the better.  Most of the time, I have to police myself when writing captions because I want to tell every little detail.  With limited space, that's sometimes a problem.  So I have to force myself to focus on the theme of the caption, which is really, really difficult for me.

Which makes a caption like this so refreshing.  I knew what I wanted to do with it as soon as I saw the picture.  One sentence, but it conveyed everything I wanted it to.  As most of you are aware, I really enjoy making these advertisement style captions (maybe I missed my calling as a graphic artist for some advertising agency), and this one was no different.

I hope you all like it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

What's Going on Here?!

I love this photo.  Sure, it took a LOT of modification, but I think it's one of the best I've done.  I'm really, really pleased with it.

And the caption is one of my favorites as well.  We've all met people that we're sure are living a lie.  They can't even admit to themselves what they want.  Heck, some of us ARE those people.  This caption taps into that idea, building upon it by establishing a situation where a closeted sissy just can't help himself sometimes.

I hope you all enjoy it.




On another note, I mentioned the video that I worked on yesterday, and I just wanted you all to know that I finished it last night, and I plan to post it in the next couple of days.  It's not the greatest in terms of transitions and stuff, but I think it's an effective ~8 minutes.

As scheduled, "A Warrior Reborn" should launch next Tuesday (barring a major editing fiasco), and I hope all of you will take advantage of it, and purchase the e-book for your computer or e-reader.  Said purchase will help keep me captioning (via a new version of Photoshop) and will make me feel all warm and cuddly inside.

Maybe She's Onto Something

You all know that I like the idea of the unaware male.  This extends to guys not being able to admit to themselves that they're not really into women.  Naturally, I focused on that for this picture/caption combination.  I hope you all like it.


On a different note, I've been working on a video (off and on) tonight that I think you'll all really like.  It centers on a very feminine male secretary and his first visit to a male strip club.

A Birthday Surprise

This caption is one of my favorites that I've done.  There's something about the idea of a boy finally succumbing to his desires.  Sure, he might deny it, but deep down, he knows (at the very least, subconsciously) what he wants.  And I like to document that moment when he finally gives in. 

The picture required way more modification than it looks like (which, I guess means I did a good job).  Getting the chest to look right was really, really difficult, but I think it really adds to the photo/caption combination. 

Anyway, here's the caption.

Ready to Go

Not much to say about this caption, except enjoy!

An Unexpected Reaction

Today's caption was inspired by some captions I recently discovered on Imagefap.  They are the work of Wxhluyp, and they are really quite good.  The only thing holding them back is that sometimes they are hard to read (we've all been there!).  However, they are well worth a bit of squinting as the content is superb. 

Wxhluyp imagines a world where most men would identify as Androphiliacs (attracted to masculinity).  Only those alpha males are truly attracted to women.   The only thing keeping the majority of men from openly pursuing sexual relationships with (real) men are cultural and societal norms. 

There aren't many captions yet (only about 20 or so), but what's there is really sexy.  If it sounds like something you would like, I highly recommend that you check the gallery out.  You can find it HERE .

That said, this caption is really simple in design.  I was going for Wxhluyp's style, but ended up with something of a mixture between that and my own.  Here it is:

Test Subject Two: The Personal Trainer

This series chronicles two seriously unethical researchers as they try to determine whether or not the masculine gender role is genetic or if it is learned.

The first in this series can be found HERE .

I've had this one on my plate for quite a while now, but I just haven't had the time to complete it until now.  I hope you all like it.















Male Femininity and Gender Role Reversal

I remember a while back, one of the sites I really, really liked kind of disappeared.  I'm not sure what happened, but one day it was there, the next, it wasn't. 

The name of that site was Male Femininity and Gender Role Reversal...I'm sure some of you have visited it before.  Anyway, it's back.  You can visit it HERE

It's just like it sounds -- a site dedicated to feminine men and gender role reversal.  It usually has really nice content, and I figured I'd give it a plug since it was one of the sites that inspired me to create my own.

Backed Against a Wall

I had the idea for this caption as I lay in bed last night, trying to go to sleep.  One of the things I'm cognizant of is that some of my "heroines" really aren't.  They change these boys for completely selfish reasons.  Sure, I do like to tie a little ribbon around it, and make sure that it all works out usually, but that doesn't change the fact that what they've done is wrong.

So, I wanted to write a caption with a completely justified heroine -- you know, a woman who lives up to that moniker.  I decided to write a story with an abused wife as my protagonist.

I hope you all like the caption.

Sometimes, you're just in the right place at the right time.

I've had this scenario in the back of my mind for years, but I had never written anything about it.   I love how the caption came together, too.  The picture...well, it's okay I guess.  I have issues when I'm working with a previously altered picture.  Before I started working with Photoshop, I would never have noticed it.  Some of it is really subtle.  This one...not so much.  I knew at first glance that something was off, but it took me getting down to the pixels to really figure out what was wrong.  So, I had to fix that first, and then alter it to fit my needs (which meant reducing the breast size to almost nothing).  It's not horrible, but it's far from the best I've done.

More Visitors!

I just wanted to remind you all that this is a relatively new site, and that we need to get the word out.  You obviously like my work, so share it.  If you visit a similarly themed site on a regular basis, suggest it to those who visit that site.  If you run a similarly themed site, link to here (I try to return any links I get). 

And, I wanted to thank those of you who have already done this.  I do enjoy seeing thousands of pageviews a day.

Thanks for being fans, you all.

The Bachelorette Party

This caption kind of had a mind of its own...and that's how I like it.  It practically wrote itself.  I just set up the situation, and it flowed out. 

I've always had a fascination with a boy getting treated like a woman by male strippers.  We've all seen the videos (or if you haven't, go look up Dancing Bear on Google) of women going crazy at these stripper parties.  I like the idea of a boy going to one of these, and giving in the same way they do (and getting treated just like one of the girls).  So that's where this caption came from.

The photo manipulation isn't perfect (I'm always trying to get better!), but it is light years ahead of where I was even a few months ago.  I think I'm really starting to understand how to work with colors in Photoshop.

As to the background, it's very, very basic.  It's not nearly as cool as the one I did for my previous set of photos, but I think it's effective all the same.

Hope you enjoy it.

Catching Up With an Old Friend

I really liked this set of photographs.  The modifications were a pain in the butt, but I think they turned out pretty well.  And I love the captions.  Enjoy.
