Caption Stories

This is where I'll be posting my picture stories.  Previously, I had them all on different pages, but I thought that felt a little clunky.  So I decided to put them on a single page.

Revenge is a Dish Best Served Feminine 

 

This was actually one of the first caption stories I made for this site, and looking at it now, I'm still pretty happy with the result.  Although, I have to say that my favorite frame is the title page.



















Three Strikes and You're Feminized


This was my first real attempt at painting in my photo manipulation.  I simply couldn't find a suitable set of pictures from which to draw the modifications, so I just painted them myself.  It's solid as first attempts go, but I've definitely gotten better since then.
















Subject One: My Roommate

 This is an ongoing series (which I'll be getting back to at some point) in which a pair of amoral scientists study gender roles by feminizing unsuspecting boys.  I actually started this one because I liked the model, and thought she'd be easy to manipulate for my purposes.  As it turned out, I got mixed results.  I admit that I rushed a bit on some of the photos, but on others, I was really quite pleased (and still am) with the result.





















Subject Two: The Personal Trainer

 This is the second in the aforementioned series, and I think I did a bit better job on this set of photos.  The results may not show it, but they were quite a bit harder to manipulate.

















Catching Up With an Old Friend


I absolutely love this series.  The layout stands as my favorite background that I've done.  I think that it could almost stand as a work of art on its own accord.  And then there are the pictures.  I think they have absolutely top-notch photo manipulation.  I remember having this set of photos sitting on my hard drive forever, and finally, over a weekend, I broke down and decided to really give it a go.  It was difficult and time-consuming, but I think the results speak for themselves.









Turning the Tables

This was a bit different than my typical caption stories.  I didn't do much (if any) manipulation of the images.  I just made a background (which didn't turn out nearly as well as I'd hoped), and started writing.  The story is really fun, and I love the twist at the end.












Let the Past Stay in the Past? Nah, I'll Just Feminize my High School Tormentors.  Thanks for the Suggestion, Though

I love making these sort of plaid backgrounds.  I don't know why.  They don't look terribly great in this context.  Anyway, I thought that, though it was a very simple modification job, the photos turned out very well.  And the story is a personal favorite of mine.






The Time Article Series

This was a fun concept I had that started with the cover and blossomed into two full articles.  I love the idea of gender role reversal, and I decided to incorporate that into this article series.  The layouts were kind of difficult at first, but after a few hours, it felt like second nature.  And it turned out better than I ever could have expected.








From Boss to Secretary

I love the idea of a sissy secretary, and this caption story was meant to capture that idea.













Be all the Sissy You Can Be

I remember being relatively proud of this caption series when I finished with it, but it didn't get the response that I thought it might have deserved.  Maybe it's the general concept of it, that we'd pluck a sissy from basic training and force him to serve his fellow soldiers as little more than a sex toy.  I don't know.  Either way, I'm still proud of it -- especially the modification work.









The Feminizers

This little series was born from the cover image.  I don't remember where I found it, but I quite liked the role reversal.  The woman in the tuxedo surrounded by beautiful women was just too much to resist.  And so, I created a little gender role reversal contest to justify that one picture.

It's a little ironic, really, that I chose to make it an Entertainment Weekly article because some of my modification work is sub-par (I didn't really have time to do it justice, and some of the pictures just weren't cooperating).  The irony, of course, is that EW is known for its shoddy Photoshop work.








The Womanizing CEO

This short caption story was created from a picture series I didn't even remember I had.  I was just looking through my library, and when I saw them, a story popped into my mind almost immediately.








Justice

This is my longest caption story, but I think it's worth pushing through.  I had one goal when I started this caption story; I wanted to show the actual transformation of the main character, rather than pick up the story after he's already been through the changes.  To do that, I used four different models throughout this story (with varying degrees of modification).  The first photograph only had the eye and face shape changed to be more in line with the model I used for the majority of the captions.  The second model was largely untouched (the face is partially obscured, so you don't really see the differences so much).  However, I did modify the eye shape a little.  The model had slightly slanted eyes before.  The third model was the most difficult, because I had to completely change the face (I've only done it a few times, as it's kind of difficult to make it blend properly).  The fourth model is the final product, and was the subject of my typical modifications (mainly adding a penis in a couple of frames).  This was one of my most ambitious projects, and I think it turned out really, really well.






























Sons of Anarchy Tribute:  I Had It All

This is my favorite caption story so far.  It looks short because of the number of frames, but it's really quite a robust story.  Couple that with the fact that it is meant as an alternative future for the television show (one of my favorite shows, believe it or not), and it really takes the idea to a different level.  I also really, really love this model, and I think that this story's modification is some of the best I've done.  The layout was kind of fun, too.  I wanted to do something different, and I think this was a good change of pace.












Feminized Husbands


 I've always loved the idea of a reality television show in which men are feminized, so it's no surprise that when I saw TGTales' Feminized Husbands (the second one is HERE)videos on Youtube, I was enamored with it.  All of her videos are fun, but that one stuck with me from the moment I first saw it.  So I decided to put my own little spin on it.  Yes, I went a little more in-depth with the characters, but that's just my style. 

When I was posting it, I decided that I wanted to extend the story a little, so I let you all vote which one of these characters you wanted to see again.  You chose Joey Kennedy.  My favorite?  I was hoping for Leo Samuels because there are so many great pictures (and it would have been a much more erotic story), but if I were voting for the most interesting character, I would have picked Randall Starks.  Either way, it was fun to see how you all voted!


























Feminized Husbands: The Winner

This was one of my more interesting projects, and I actually put it off for a while.  Originally, I was just going to write a quick text story (10-15 pages) detailing Joey Kennedy's experience on the show, but more and more, I wanted to create a caption story.  So one day, I sat down, found a series of suitable pictures, and got to work.  The modifications were the bulk of the work, but the story took a little longer than normal.  I really wanted to blend the eroticism of the changes with the reality of what it would do to a marriage.  This marks the first time I really wanted to include a "before" image, and I think it turned out pretty well (even though it took me hours to get right).




























The Bachelorette Party

This one isn't a terribly complicated caption story.  I didn't really do much in terms of modification or anything, but it is one of my favorite concepts - a feminine boy at a bachelorette party. 













The F-Virus

With this set of captions, I didn't want to do too much in terms of story.  I know that sounds a little strange coming from me, but I wanted to leave this little world open for later.  Basically, it's just an account (told via mocked-up medical records) of the inexplicable feminization of random men.  I did enjoy the photo modifications here, though. 




Can I Tell You a Secret

This one was really, really fun to do for a few reasons.  First, it let me start toying with the idea of showing a feminized boy still trying to be a man.  I was lucky enough to find the first set of photographs which made that possible.  Second, the source model was just so darn cute!  This story doesn't break new ground or anything, but I think it great for what it is - just a story about a feminized man.

















The Evolving Male Body

I did a series of gender role reversal stories in which I recounted how a specific aspect of male life had changed.  The first of these was one depicting a half century's worth of changes to the ideal male body.  With this set of pictures, I was beginning to experiment with my artistic capabilities within Photoshop.  Love the idea, still not crazy about the execution.  But it was a vital step toward creating more original art.  You can find the original post HERE if you'd like to see my commentary.







Men's Fashion

With this set, I wanted to show the different stages of how men's fashion had changed (within the alternate role-reversed future).  From suits to skirts, it was a fun little idea.  You can find my commentary HERE .







The Extinction of the Japanese Man

I've seen quite a few stories about how men in Japan are becoming increasingly more feminine (in their attire, mannerisms, and cultural expectations).  So I chose to create a short history depicting their feminization.  You may find my commentary HERE .









The Power of Suggestion

As I was modifying these pictures, I thought that, at the very least, this could be very special, visually speaking.  I was lucky enough to find a male model that resembled the female model I planned to use - or at least he looked enough like her that, with only a few minor tweaks, they could pass for close siblings.  Same face shape, eye shape and the like - I really only had to slightly alter the jaw line to get it to the point where it was acceptable.  The caption stories are always so much more fun when I can show who the person used to be as a male.

I typically know the story I want to tell before I even start on the modifications, but with this one, I sort of did it backwards.  It wasn't until I was almost finished that I hit on a theme - show a character as he goes through hypnosis, and slowly have him "come out of it."  

The story isn't terribly original or anything, but I do like the added realism of a drug which enables the hypnosis.  

As I wrote it, however, I started to really get a feel for the characters, and the story just sort of took off.  I think of this as probably my best-executed story I've posted onto this blog.  I particularly enjoy the "fantasy" scenes.  So often, I don't get to describe the scene (that's the shortcut the pictures provide), but with a fantasy, I can put ideas into the readers' minds.  And that's all a writer can ever hope to achieve.






































Step by Step

This particular caption story was really, really fun for me to create because it allowed me to do some really neat things with the photo modification, the layouts, and the story.



The first thing you probably noticed about the first frame is the unique layout.  I don't usually put the title in my captions (and definitely not in individual frames of a caption story), but I just thought it would be kind of a different approach.

This picture actually took a really, really long time to get right.  Properly transplanting someone's face onto another person's body can be really time consuming.  There are issues of skin tone, lighting, blending of the textures...it can get very frustrating at times (and this one definitely frustrated me).

For those interested in how I did it, I started with two separate pictures  - one of the model I wanted to use (a porn actress named Julia Bond), the other of a random man who had the hairstyle I wanted to use.  I won't go into how I blended the two (a combination of the eraser tool, the patch tool, the clone stamp tool, and the paint brush), but eventually, I got it right...except for the lighting.  For that, I simply made a gradient overlay.

After some touch up (removing the fake eye lashes, softening the mascara, etc.), I was done.  And I think it turned out almost seamless.


One of the hardest things I sometimes have to do when modifying pictures is removing hair.  This picture originally had long hair, but as you can see by the caption, that just wouldn't fit.  I wanted to show an extra stage of transformation, so this was it.   I also changed the lighting up so it would look a little more dramatic.

This picture had some pretty heavy modification in the chest.  I actually created the upper part of her right arm completely from scratch.  

This picture was originally a captured frame from a movie.  The biggest thing I did with this one (aside from removing the breasts) was a pretty heavy color correction process.  I also removed some tattoos.

This one was pretty easy - just the removal of a lower back tattoo, removal of the breasts, and the addition of some dramatic lighting.  

This one gave me fits.  I'm still not happy with it (I think it's the weak link in the series).  Originally, the model wasn't having anal sex, and of course, she had breasts.  

I love t his picture.  I'm not saying it's the best job I've ever done, but in terms of degree of difficulty, that bikini bottom was absolutely nightmarish.  Oh - and I also removed the breasts here and added some dramatic lighting.

This picture is such a fun picture, and it accents the story of a really feminine boy so well.  However, outside of adjusting color, I didn't really do much to this one.  I will say that the title of the caption was a little difficult to wedge into the frame (poor planning on my part), but I think it turned out okay.

 I had to do some pretty heavy tattoo (and piercing) removal for most of these frames (and in some difficult places), but that's pretty much all this one took.  I tend to blend unmodified pictures with heavily modified pictures so that the reader gets the illusion that, even if they can't see it, they know it's there.


Just tattoo removal on this one.


This picture was really, really difficult to get right.  I spent way too long trying put a penis between her legs, but in the end, I opted to just alter the shadows so that you can only see the barest hint (if you look closely).  Still, I think it looks nice and dramatic.


This one wasn't as difficult to get right as I originally thought it would be - sometimes converting conventional, vaginal intercourse to anal sex can be a bit of a hassle.  But this one was really kind of easy.
 

I love that tiny penis.  It says almost as much about the character as the rest of the body.  Maybe more.  And it's blended really, really well.  Coloring could be better, but overall, not bad.  I also did the obligatory tattoo removal and lighting sweep.

I love this frame so much - the black and white with the red just pops.  The pose says so much that I the caption basically wrote itself.  


I loved using this model because she had a breast enlargement sometime in the middle of her porn career, so it's nice to be able to show phases of the transformation.


This is one of my favorite pictures because it could almost pass for real art (if you didn't account for the fake breasts and the suggestive pose).  Once the body modification was complete, I thought the picture still needed some more pop.  So I created a pretty dramatic light on the right.  I think it stands as one of the better examples of what I can do with a picture.


If I had it to do over again, I would have switched up the color scheme on this one.  That yellow doesn't seem to fit with the red.  Still, I love the look on her face (and that's why I used the picture).


It's not a complicated picture.  Nor is it a complicated caption.  But I think that's the beauty of it - it's soft and simple coupled with a dramatic picture.

I didn't have to do much here - just some tattoo removal, lighting, and a little toying with the background.  But it's effective nonetheless.


I really like the modification on this picture.  I'm usually a pretty harsh critic of my work, but I can't find anything in this picture that I would change, now (and that's really, really rare).  So that's all I can say about that.


This was my favorite title.  I love the idea of a boy who, when he was younger, wanted to grow up to be a cowboy - it's just a fun idea that he ends up riding something else besides horses.


I really dislike this layout.  It was so difficult (with the plants), and finally, I just said screw it, and created a box for the title.  It doesn't fit with the rest of the captions, but I liked the model's pose.  So I still used it.  


None of these scenes were originally of anal sex.  And the way the model is looking back just fit the intended caption so perfectly, I had to use it - no matter how much I had to modify it.

I wanted to end the story with a pretty picture, and I think this one fit that bill quite nicely.  

The overall story here wasn't that complicated in theory, but I think that I actually created a three-dimensional character by referencing past events (and showing doubt and resistance).  Extremely fun story to write, modify, and lay out.


Military Men

I think the thing I'm most proud of in this story is the first frame, in which I did some facial modifications.  I know that most people will overlook it, but it was really, really hard to get it right.  That said, I really liked creating this story as well - it's very different than my typical stories, and I think it ended up working really, really well.























A Reversal of Fortune 

This was a fun one to do simply because it allowed me to let you all see a glimpse of a gender role reversed world in its early stages.  And I did it by showing the effects on both sexes.  I know it's far from perfect, but it was definitely a fun one to create.



























Sensitivity Training

I enjoyed creating this caption story because it presented a very unique challenge in that I wanted to show the protagonist at different stages of the transformation.  To do that, I had to use quite a few different models (to varying degrees of success).  A few look seamless while others are clearly early attempts.  Still, I think it's a very important step in the process of creating true transformation stories (rather than "before and after" stories).



































Making a Living

With this story, I wanted to use a little different narrative device.  Rather than tell a chronological story, I wanted to drop in on the protagonist in the middle of it all.  Then, I would give him hints as to his former life until finally, we see the whole story.  It was a fun idea simply because it was so different from my normal stuff.  That, and I think the "before" pictures were quite good.


























Political Pressure

This one started out as as very short caption story, but quickly ballooned into something quite a bit more ambitious.  I know it's not perfect, but it's as close as I've gotten (at least in terms of my "before" or "transition" pictures).  

I also really like the idea of a powerful father being punished via the feminization of his son.  I'm not sure why, but it's a fun notion.





































Boikini Season

This one is a simple concept inspired by TG Tales' The Feminized Husbands Game Show.  As that might imply, the framework is that of a contest between feminized men.  Should be a fun detraction from my normal, more serious fare. 




















Fitting In

This is probably my most complete caption story to date, in that the photo manipulation is the most consistent I've done and the story is decent.  I know that interracial stories aren't necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but I do believe this is one of the best examples of my work.




















A Tale of Two Sissies

At 48 frames, this is easily the longest caption story I've written, and rightly so.  It's actually two interconnected stories, so it had to be slightly longer than usual.  The story itself is fun, and I think, decently written.  And I've been wanting to use Tanner Mayes as a primary model for a while.  The photo manipulations turned out pretty well, and the whole thing came together pretty nicely.

















































Fake Time Articles

With this set, I wanted to create a set of fake articles through which I could tell an alternate history.  It was pretty fun, trying to get the layouts right - and using a little different style of writing than I usually employ.  








Gynarchy

I originally thought this would be a text story, but as I was writing it, I had this idea that I could insert some modified "selfies" which could give the reader a bit better idea just how far the changes had come.  Using low-quality pictures like this can be frustrating sometimes, but if its done correctly, it can also be virtually indistinguishable form the real deal.  I can only hope that, with at least a few of them, I did it right.  





















RPG


I enjoyed doing this one because the story was very, very different than what I usually do.  I left it somewhat ambiguous because I want the reader to decide what the catalyst for the transformation really was.


















Boikini Season


I had these pictures sitting on my hard drive for almost six months before I decided to do something with them.  I'm always a big fan of feminization contests, and this one fit that bill quite nicely.
