Things I have learned in 2012: 1  
When doing a Google Image search for 'men's feet', make sure that the filter is set to Strict Safe Search.

You would not believe what Google considers Moderate!

Um. Why were you searching for men's feet?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 1st, 2012 12:57 pm (UTC)
So many possible smutty lies ...

The embarrassing truth is that a friend has a shortage of fanartists for her fest, and I said that I would love to help, but alas, I am not great at drawing the male figure yet, only female nudes and feet. You can probably guess the sequence of events from there ;-)

(Seriously, there were multiple penes in some of those moderate shots!)

I thought you had a live subject in your house ;P

No use, he's playing Skyrim! Also, I need a few pairs of different looking ones. I think I'll have to haul out the art books ...
ravurianravurian on January 1st, 2012 01:43 pm (UTC)
LOL. I'm assuming it's not just feet you need, but attached to figures in various poses? If so: Brammers, ur doin it rong. You just need to make a post to your LJ asking your f-list to post their favourite pics of barefoot celebrities...

D'OH! You're completely right! But I've broken out the art books in a bid to look for some classical references tonight. It's ever so likely that I'll not be able to get the foreshortening right at all -- I think I'm six months off being good enough at shading to carry that sort of thing off well.

And GET WELL!

I'm honestly a lot better than I was - it's just a reaction to the inoculation rather than full-on typhoid, so not all that bad really...

*Snort* Despite your evil ways, I am so not writing Draco's Spare Feet For Those Who Judge By Toe Length ;-)

And HURRAH for getting better!

Oh it's about a 10% chance -- I am passable at female forms, but not great at male. NEXT year, we could be in luck ;-)

*giggles* I'm afraid to ask where those men's feet might have been.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 1st, 2012 01:05 pm (UTC)
I think in a couple of cases they were thinking feet in the '… and inches' sense!

My brain would NEVER HAVE GONE THERE. Oh my god.

SORRY!
★ariannagray on January 1st, 2012 01:36 pm (UTC)
Of course I had to try this. Interesting results. xD
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 1st, 2012 01:48 pm (UTC)
I actually went to check that I hadn't entered Men's feet and blowjobs by mistake!
★ariannagray on January 1st, 2012 02:00 pm (UTC)
Hehehe.. yeah, there really was a lot of peen, considering you were looking for feet.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 1st, 2012 02:02 pm (UTC)
Bwahahahahahaha!

And me. I am so easily led. Also now educated ;p
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 1st, 2012 02:01 pm (UTC)
I knew that you would ;-) Treacle totally will, too, if she see this!
lokifan: shamelesslokifan on January 1st, 2012 06:14 pm (UTC)
Me too!

HELLO THREESOME ON PAGE #2, I WOULD NOT HAVE EXPECTED TO SEE YOU.

Now if, like me, you had googled 'Feet male' the most exciting image you'd have got is a USB plug connector. even on my 'anything goes' filter.

Feel rather prudish now ;(

(Am also wondering why, as something of a feet-fan, I do not have an appropriate icon.)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 1st, 2012 02:21 pm (UTC)
It's not you, it's Google! Who can explain their ways? (I feel certain they have a porn section that concentrates on inserting dodginess where one least expects it!)

And I can;t see most icons at the moment. No idea why, either LJ or Firefox has gone mad, possibly both ...
Nennenenne on January 1st, 2012 02:43 pm (UTC)
I will never get the Google system. You get NWS images no matter what you search for. Almost. It's a bit disturbing really.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 1st, 2012 02:47 pm (UTC)
One of my artists at work cannot do a Google search without receiving porn in response. I think they have spyware in all our computers and record the startled reactions!
Nennenenne on January 1st, 2012 02:59 pm (UTC)
LOL I can definitely picture that! XD
waterbirdwaterbird on January 1st, 2012 03:32 pm (UTC)
That is hilarious. Happy new year!
Jaeenchanted_jae on January 1st, 2012 07:41 pm (UTC)
Oh, the agony of de feet!
silent hallucinationalex_s9 on January 1st, 2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
Nice one.

I'd say I was sorry...
... but it would be a filthy lie. No wonder you got distracted. :oP

9 artists in the end!

Don't think I didn't see that comment about next year, either...
Hueyphoenixacid on January 2nd, 2012 04:23 pm (UTC)
You've made me very very curious...
wedjateyewedjateye on January 4th, 2012 11:15 am (UTC)
How bizarre! I also tried 'gay sex' as a control search and (aside from quite a few John Travolta pics???) mostly ended up with sweet kissing pictures...
