Homoerotic Art: Romance Among Warriors

Note: Contains sexual references.

A sexual tone is present in Aenaluck’s vast collection of drawings and paintings. Many of her characters are inspired by the open world fantasy video game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. There are Barbarian-style warriors posing their perfectly toned bodies, while others seem curious to have romantic relationships with brothers-in-arms. Her art is indeed her own storytelling of these characters; and it does remind me a bit of a movie I watched: “Gohatto” (1999)—a plot about homosexuality among samurais.
