The Goddess's Consort

Well, the Goddess needs a consort. I can't really call him a god... that seems sacrilegious in some weird way. Hehe. At first I wasn't going to post this because the picture seems a little... strange. But I decided you guys deserve to see the good, the bad, the ugly, the strange. It's not that I don't like him, I just can't decide what's wrong with him. I don't know if it's the rock-n-roll hair (all the better to run your hands through?) or the girly eyes (all the better to gaze upon intently?) or the full luscious lips (all the better to... well, you get the idea!)

I haven't figured out yet what difference in facial features make a face look like a woman or a man. I'll have to get a GQ magazine and study it carefully. I know the square jaw makes a difference. What else? There's something about the eyes too... not sure what. When you see people who have sex change operations and they are in their alternate form, there is still a tinge of their former gender peeking through, what ultimately makes them look male or female, even if it is just a teeny tiny bit at that point. Am I making any sense?

Hm. Maybe he needs 5:00 shadow? Or a Tom Selleck mustache? Hehe.


  1. Hi Lisa
    Here's my critique. I like long hair on men, but it may be that his should be short==I think that his eyebrows are too even and his lips too full-I think you've done a good job on the shape of his face -he does look kind of andryogenous. --I can't spell that word-but you know what I mean

  2. Lisa I think you are doing a wonderful job and I would never have known this is the first male you've drawn. Keep going with your sketches and you will find the balance you are looking for. xo-teri

  3. I love the eyes!! Culture decides what features are feminine and masculine. And the concepts are on a continuum with male and female both found from one end to the other along that line. As far as a god, I am intrigued by pagan, greek, roman, and other gods. I believe they are all images of one spirit. Our goddesses need gods!

  4. He's nice lookin' - as are your other drawings here recently. You're gettin' pretty good with the faces and the goddesses and stuff. I'm enjoying watching as you are making progress! :-)


I am so grateful for every single comment you leave. Thank you for hearing me.
