Jesse Edwards is a professional American fine art oil painter, ceramicist (ceramic artist), and a graffiti artist. He has a very “street” oriented style that is “rough” and vibrant (a style that works well with graffiti as a medium)
Jesse’s first medium was graffiti. His roots trace back to “tagging” and fast wall art all around Snohomish, WA. Edwards consider graffiti as what he calls “installation art,” celebrities, friends, and self-portraits are what his graffiti craft is typically based around.
Also Edwards is known for his erotic art he is also quite versatile with works depicting dead celebrities like Anna Nicole Smith and rapper Tupac Shakur in emotional states.
Edwards’ rough personality that is often attributed to thug culture goes into a lot of his street art and he is not afraid to express himself in a multitude of ways that some art critics may consider lewd (his erotic art has been scrutinized in the past by the art world).
Either way, Jesse Edwards has made quite an impact in the art world in the last 5 years.
Born in 1945, Toshio Saeki took up art at the young age of 4 when his family went to Osaka to live. After attending college, Saeki worked in advertising design where many people continued to take notice of his work.
Although he is Japanese, Toshio Saeki always had an interest in developing his own graphic style and not “following the herd” like so many Japanese people. 1970 was the year he published Saeki Toshio gashû (Collection of drawings of Toshio Saeki) according to the author, “using Japanese motifs for a nightmarish fresco which cause impassioned comments.”
Several exhibitions are devoted to him. Also, his work appears in all kinds of media, fetching a high price for originals from both commercial enterprises and private collectors.
The term “ero” was from his pseudo-memoir works Memories 1970:
A Highly Sexual Play On Mythological Japan (CLICK TO EXPAND)
“When I speak about my work, I often employ the term ero. However recently, somebody whom I know gave me some advice from a museum curator: ‘It would be to better give up the term ero for that of Eros used in art.’ But what he says, am I told! The distinction between ero and Eros, is the essence there?”

Toshio Saeki is, without a doubt, a master of erotic art.
The Witcher has had a cult following among western RPG (Role Playing Game) enthusiasts for some time now. For a variety of reasons the game has been geared towards results and some erotic artwork contained in the game in the form of digital cards called romance or sex cards.
The cards are gained when Geralt, the main game character the player controls, sleeps with one of the female characters in the game.
North America Censored The Art When The Game First Came Over
A throwback to early 20th century novelty “naughty” postcards, each card has it’s own sexy and unique posed female character that is beautifully drawn and colored. Originally, the North American edition of the game censored the cards, thus, obstructing nipples and buttocks with clothing and objects.
Thanks to the Director’s Cut patch uncensored cards are now available in North America without the use of modifications.
Just a few cards are shown in this editorial. If you want to see more, get the game.
Is it realism? The animation? The colors perhaps?
What make virtual sex games “good?”
Well, it depends on the goal of the game producer in some regards at least.
If true realism it to be achieved then photorealism is an obvious approach to creating a lifelike character in a virtual sex game.
Many virtual sex games are built with CGI graphics to meet these photo-realistic sex image requirements.
However, that realism is a cartoon character than the a realistic moving cartoon vixen is the answer. Animation becomes a strong factor in art contributing to virtual sex game development.
Sometimes a cartoon image can be very erotic. The realism is stripped away and just the eroticism remains. Several talented erotic artists have tried their hand at implementing their erotic art into a game. There are a few obstacle, of course…
For starters most artists aren’t software/web developers so essential skills that a game developer may need like coding and, at the very least, familiarity with game development platforms (Flash, Java, etc.) something many erotic artists do not have.
A variety of styles go into virtual sex games and because of that a variety of sub genres are created from the artwork. Some of these virtual sex games are very mature and some are more light-hearted and humorous. The style reflects that a lot.
CGI graphics tends to be used with the most mature games while 2D graphics that use light “cartoony” colors tend to go with the funny ones.
One thing is certain, a truly good virtual sex game depends a great deal on the art being attributed to it.
Original Vargas Prints That Were Once Circulated In Print Can Fetch Thousands In Todays Open Market
Originally from Peru, a craftsman with watercolor and an airbrush. Vargas’ inspiration came from a copy of the french men’s magazine La Vie Parisienne (vintage) with a cover done by Raphael Kirchner, a huge influence in his work.

The Painting Of A Nude Girl Is Harder To Make Appear Erotic Than Most Think
Paintings of nude girls…the phrase alone will make several people’s ears immediately spring up like a dog suddenly hearing a high-pitched sound on a quite afternoon.
The Seduction Of A Nude Girl In A Painting Is Powerful.
The art of painting a nude girl is on the balance of porn and art eternally.
Even In Ancient Times The Lure Of Nude Girls Has Drawn Millions Of Eyes To The Canvas.
Without going for absolute hyperrealism like some professional erotic artists do, it is difficult to establish that connection between the eroticism and the art to someone who otherwise would not understand art even at it’s most basic fundamentals.
Besides The Physical Beauty, The Vulnerablity Is Enticing.
The list of artists is seemingly endless when it comes to those that have painted a nude female of magnificent beauty. Continuing erotica such as nude girls is the test of preservation for an art world they may or may not be overly critical in the future.
Talented 3D Artists Are Obviously Behind ThriXXX’s Virtual Sex Game’s Success
3D sex art has a bad name for itself in the erotica sub-genre of art. Simply put, it’s cheap and undeserving of recognition in erotica as art. Regardless of this, it is still art as a talented artist must visualize and materialize it.
3D Sex Games May Be Criticised For The Tools Used But Art Is Art
And so, terms like CGI Porn and Virtual Sex Art were created. A paint brush and a computer program are both tools to two different type of artists who are artists none the less. ThriXXX’s work is exemplified in this sense as they have been on the forefront of creating virtual sex games for a very long time with amazing artistry going into their sexy virtual worlds.
ThriXXX Sex Games Are Hot In The Visuals

Colors Are Huge In Erotic Pop Art
The Beginning of Erotic Pop Art
Erotic pop art actually has a richer history than what most people would have you believe. Erotic pop art differs from pop art in that there is a blatant and continuous representation of explicit adult depictions in various mediums.
Erotica In The Sytle Of Andy Warhol
Pop art and erotic pop art simultaneously materialized from the ideas of the masses in the early 60’s in the United States when a lot counter-culture movements starting arising, namely how liberal and open people can be about sex.
Using the very commercial and mass-media imagery that represented what so many people despised, pop art flourished in a world of new ideas and erotic pop art soon followed with many well known artists taking part in the movement.
Simplistic Yet Powerful Imagery Is Incorporated Into Adult Pop Art
The Feminist Movement: A Crippling Blow To Erotic Pop Art
Always more of an “underground movement,” erotic pop art took some hits from the second wave feminist movement of the same decade, slowing it’s growth to the point that it’s more obscure now than ever before.
Vibrant Colors And Simple Lines Are Common Ingredients In Erotic Pop Art
Few artists today have talents worthy enough to say that they keep the movement alive. Most greats that really flourished in the 80’s and 90’s have since passed on and many amateurs have taken up the art form to make a name for themselves but few have succeeded.
The Female Form Is Quite Seductive In This Artists Hand
A painter, sculptor and highly skilled artist when it came to creating seductive works of art featuring France’s most beautiful girls.
Master Of The Erotic Pin Up
Born Alain Gordon in 1930, Aslan had a penchant for a woman’s form and he clearly illustrated that in his work. No other artist has captured the attention of the art world simply from drawing and painting naked women.
A Comic Book Approach To Aslan’s Erotic Art
Know for his sculpture work (specifically the Fifth Republic Marianne) but, again, his ability to draw naked females earned him much notoriety and led to him being a contributor to Lui, the popular men’s magazine in France.
Certain Curves In A Woman Were Definetely His Specialty. Hips And Ass Namely.
in 1969 Aslan crossed paths with the work of Frank Frazetta which was chosen in place of Aslan’s for the first issue cover of Vamiprella.
To This Day Aslan’s Art Is Used In A Variety Of Projects Like These Skateboard Decals
It was these kind of happenings that has made Aslan more obscure to critics in the art world and unfortunately kept him from the notoriety he otherwise should have had to the rest of the world outside of France.
Centerfold Pin Up Erotic Art Was At Its Peak In Adult Magazines Throughout The 70s And 80s.
Pin-up art was probably best known in the 50’s. Vintage Americana is really what it is best attributed to now because of the sexual revolution that women went through in the early part of the 20th century.
Linds Style Is Softer In Composition And Presentation Following The Traits Of Traditional 50s Erotic Pin Up Art
When “Flappers” came around and women started to flaunt their sexuality in a more risque fashion, pin-up erotica soon followed.
Flapper Erotica Is Argued To Be The Beginning Of The Sexy Pin Up Girl Movement
“clean” pin-up art where the girl was still clothed was often used in mainstream advertising for soda shops around the country but when nude pin-up art popped up is when the popularity of the art really grew.
There Are Even Art Books Based On Pin Up Erotica
Popular pin-up artists such Alberto Vargas and Baron Gerald Von Lind added to the genre with works of high quality erotica.
Working In A CGI Medium Is A Newer Technique For Erotic Pin Up Artists
Now, the art form is on the verge of death as erotica has only grown more hardcore, thus dwarfing the “cutesyness” of the pin-up girl.
