It’s Homoerotic Herakles, drawn by Hugo Qaherabear — the 7th entry for the Homoerotic Deities Pin-Up Challenge!
ATTN: ARTISTS/ILLUSTRATORS/CARTOONISTS OF G+/Tumblr/Facebook/DeviantArt/Twitter/etc: it’s the Homoerotic Deities Pin-Up Challenge!
I challenge you to make a homoerotic version of a deity of the pantheon of your choice! Racial, ethnic, cultural, age and body type diversity are especially welcome.
Here are some character suggestions for you to homoeroticize:
— Homoerotic Hermes, The Patron of Athletes!
— Homoerotic Cernunnos, The Stag Lord!
— Homoerotic Anansi, The Trickster!
— Homoerotic Suijin, The God of Water!
— Homoerotic Nanook, The Master of Bears!
…and so on!
Yes, Homoerotic Jesus counts.
Your deadline is Sunday, January 20th, 2013. When you are done with your illustration, send the image to email@example.com along with 1) the name you want me to credit for the illustration, 2) a link to your web-presence if you want me to use one with the Tumblr post, and 3) the name you want me to link to on G+ and/or Facebook if you want me to link you there as well. I will post Homoerotic Deities Pin-Ups on my tumblog and on my other online presences with link and credit as I receive them. I will announce category winners after the deadline!
