Trials of Eros 2 The Escape - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

Hephaistos, the god of the forge, found Eros in the wastelands. The beauty if Eros seduced him and he freed Eros of his chains. Eros then called Artemis, who sent the birds, and Eros’ escape from the wastelands complete!

This is a really different style than I normally do. I wanted something that looked like it was a painting from the 1700’s.

Harold kinda says it looks like old wallpaper! At least I got the Old part right. {g}

Publication Date: April 30, 2012
“The Men” is a collection of images and words that follows Michael Taggart’s journey as he developed his photography and PhotoShop skills to create the unique and vivid artwork that he is now recognized for throughout the world wide web.

Michael creates composites using the models in a studio setting and combining them in PhotoShop to create different scenes. This gives the ordinary photo a story, texture and history that makes it much more interesting and creates an entire fantasy world.

This book follows his journey from his first attempts at creating story worlds and continues through to his Photoshop mastery. The 141 images within cover 7 models and includes such web favorites as “Hitchhiker”, “Fallen Angel”, “Dragon Hunter” and “Alter Boy”.

Michael, a self-taught photographer, also gives his thoughts about the artwork as well as tips for beginning photographers.

So the theme for this week is the 4 elements – which most people know as Earth, Fire, Water, Air. However, the four elements are also know as Man, Woman, Thought, Feelings (matching man to fire, woman to earth, thought to air, feelings to water).

I was inspired by the element of thought. What would my Thought Bubble look like?? This is what I came up with. Hope you like it!
