Its been amazing watching your reactions to this poster of the week!
Truth be known: This was chosen as POW by Kendra. Why? She loved it. I'll let her explain her thoughts in her own words if she chooses.
Some of you guys take the POW status way too seriously. We are not judging what is best. We are just basically picking a poster we like .. so that there is always at least one good poster on the front page for new visitors to see... get it?
>>>"I took the photos (over 70) of the model here"
And where can I see those?
"It looks like an ad for a strip club."
I don't care if you took 500 photos, this just strikes me as extremely unimaginative. A topless chick with a dog collar between her legs and a flame background. And really boring type.
I'm sorry...but are gonna tell me that of all the posters that came in, this deserved POW? I'm not saying this sucks. There's a hell of a lot worse. But POW???
I don't get it?
MAXFLO - I never said it was exploitve. Cadre did. CADRE.:P I LIKE the poster and agree that it is well done. I was agreeing with this statement "it's just another poster focusing on girls and flames". Nothing more.
I'd be a hypocrite if I said this was exploitve. :D
I still stand by my original opinion:
Fucking HOT poster, not POW material.
tuffy- this poster is great! It is fresh and dosen't languish in the milieu of typical pin-up. As for this comment: "I used my vegan girlfriend to promote a band called Red Meat," I say shame on you, man! :)
A lil more about this poster:
The clubowner is the one who kept pushing me to put naked girls on my posters. I was very resistant because I think it's overdone with little thought. Most of the naked chick posters I've seen on this site are images stolen from websites or magazine with some bad font thrown on 'em. It's even better when they obscure the face or eyes so as to totally objectify the woman.
I took the photos (over 70) of the model here and the one I did last week that no one seemed to take any issue with.
This poster, and the first in this series, sold like hotcakes to both guys and gals. People have asked to have the models sign them. I nearly sold out of posters at a psychobilly show - a crowd that is notoriously cheap.
If you want to check out exploitive, check out my other naked girl pic - I used my vegan girlfriend to promote a band called Red Meat.
Anyway, thanks to everyone for their comments good AND bad. I understand a lot of the criticism and I think it's a good thing to discuss.
The only thing exploited here is the public's desire to see someone's half naked little sister all heated up & ready to get her groove on.
I'm guessing there were other photos from this shoot that could have been considered, and probably other girls as well.
The choice of this one seems thought out and makes for an interesting composition. Those eyes follow you around the room.
Compare this with other T&A themed posters, from Coop's perfectly scullpted 36-24-36 devil girls to others on the site for bands like Nashville Pussy, etc. The shapes of those women are way more stereotypical, sometimes to the point of excess. Much less of that here, and yet so much more. This drips with naughtiness, and I don't see it as just another semi-nude pic. This is a nice tight (sorry) design.
I don't see it as exploitive at all Cerdo. This kind of stuff is hardly "shoved down our throats" everyday. No effort clip art design shit is whats shoved down our throats. This poster is well designed and does it's job perfectly.
POW? I don't know, but doubt it was picked just for the T&A. Not many POWs seem to have that type of imagery.
I agree with Cerdo and Zach. Yeah, it's hot but I don't think it warrants POW. However, maybe it was the only cool thing submitted this week...which would explain everything. Again, awesome poster but I don't see it as a POW.
By the same token, would you exclude it for POW because of the same elements?
I think this is great. This same formula wouldn't always come off so well with another girl, different flames, different layout. This just has the right combination of those things to pull it off.
The choice of photo is EVERYTHING here. The pose & expression are killer. Subdued colors except for red are awesome. Color for the nipples & shorts is rad. White of the eyes & teeth pop. Small breasts are way hot. A buxom chick here would have been over the top cliche, since this is pushing it already.
Fucking great design, very well-deserved in my opinion.
This is really cool, but for some reason I don't find it as sexy as the Mike Thompson "girl with her hand holding her panties" poster--it's like this girl is trying too hard to give that "sultry" look. it seems forced or something. She should just act natural-- she's beautiful. She doesn't need that silly pose.
I'm sure you guys disagree though, right?!
HOT, HOT- HOTTER THAN HELL
Good lawd, there was no way I could look at the thumbnail of this without clicking it. Very tight design, but what obviously makes this is the perfect model with the perfect curves in the perfect pose. The facial expression & the slight hair across the face is fucking devilishly hypnotic. Although my wife may disagree, I think this might be my perfect mate. At least temporarily. Even the shitty logo at bottom left can't take away from that stare.
