Temptation (and more about eye contact in collages…)

What's she looking at? Doesn't she see that little man down there?
What’s she looking at?

One of the things I like the most about collages is eye contact between the little man and the tall woman in it. The easiest way to obtain it is to use source material that already includes a meeting glance between male and female elements.

So that makes it the hardest thing to do. Sometimes I feel as though finding the above is less likely than winning the lottery while being abducted by aliens during a plane crash.

I’m aware eye contact is also a matter of preference. Plenty of collage viewers prefer images in which the giantess is looking at the camera. Images like those, while wonderful for some, are the sort that I initially found when I entered the giantess community, and the ones I found unappealing, and boring.

I don’t mean to be insulting; I’m fully aware of the effort they take and the talent required to cause certain image effects. I just likes what I likes. I’d look at those images and I’d think, Why is she looking at “me”? Why is she not looking at the little guy she’s swallowing / holding / kissing / licking?

Lack of eye contact really gets in the way of disbelief suspension. The collage above is an example of that. My first impression is that she can’t be that interested in the little guy in bed with her if she’s looking away, seeming almost bored. Not as bored as I am.

Oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah.

But with eye contact her focus changes, and I can imagine that the way she’s looking at him, any minute now she’s gonna stop thinking how luscious his size is, and how nice the view is from up there, and she’s gonna whip out her hand and grab him and do all manner of sexy things with him.

When using Photoshop and adjusting a layer of different eyes onto the layer of a woman’s face I often get “crazy” eyes in the beginning, but that part of the process always makes me laugh. Eventually, whether I move the iris or paste another woman’s eyes over the original ones (as I did in the image above), I’m always happier with the result than if I had left it untouched.

Good eye contact makes a collager fan out of me when I find it in collages. There are some scenarios that cannot be helped where both subjects are looking at the camera, but that can tell a story if they are smiling a certain way, or holding a certain facial expression… so I suppose it depends on context, but one of the biggest things that I love to create (and find) in a collage is that interaction between the subjects’ eyes. Yummy.

  1. Can she whip her hand out and grab him now?

    How about now?

    Aside from the sexy tension in the picture, I love your choice of words. Whip. Yes. That makes me feel all squishy inside.

    How about now?

  2. I really like the imagery that accompanies that word. It tells me the motion is impulsive, but being such a comparatively giant hand, it would also have to be calculated, and very very careful.

    How that contradiction is put together forms a big part of the way I tell myself they deal with each other in their world.

    And yes, now sounds good to me.

  3. I’m one of “those” people who do shrunken man photos w/ models and action figures (have done for almost 30 years now, & I ain’t about to stop!), and I have to concur 100%; if the eye contact is not there (provided the tall Woman’s Face is in frame), then there absolutely HAS to be eye contact, at least on Her part.

    Otherwise, really, what’s the point? I don’t really wanna be a shrunken man if my Giant Captress isn’t gonna look at / for me.

  4. NOTE TO THE UNDERSQUID:

    The following is the CORRECTED post. I have no idea what happened to my sentence construction below (could be fatigue, could be the fact that shrunken man / tall women topics make me go “bbbbbbbbbb” mentally!), but the original post is absolutely ABYSMAL!! All apologies.

    Thanks — JA

Provided the tall Woman’s Face is in frame, there absolutely HAS to be eye contact, at least on Her part (the shrunken man can be oblivious to the pleasures about to befall him!).

  5. Hi JA,

    It’s both fun and painful to revisit my old posts and find comments I never saw until now. Well, that’s not entirely true. I had to see them when I approved them, but the glance was cursory and to make sure they pertained at least minimally to the post at hand. At that time, during those months, I ignored my blog for days, weeks, perhaps even a few months at a time.

    Thank you for the comment, and I have to ask: where are your collages posted? I can’t recall the last time I saw an image with an action figure as the shrunken man.
