Sexy Male Superhero Artwork | POPSUGAR Love & Sex

In David Talaski-Brown‘s mind, Thor doesn’t wear a red cape and full-body armor — he rocks a pink polka-dot robe, green Hulk slippers, and, well, that’s about it. Portland-based artist David is flipping the script with men superheroes, giving them a sexy makeover as a nod to the way scantily clad women superheroes are traditionally depicted.

“There’s always been a lack of sexy male art on comic convention floors,” he told POPSUGAR. “I thought this would be a fun way to create some equal opportunity when I tabled at my first convention last year. I’ve always been a big fan of midcentury pinup artists like Gil Elvgren, and the idea of putting male superheroes in similar poses and situations typically portrayed with women felt appropriate and cheeky.”

And cheeky they are! David’s illustrations, which he paints digitally using the Procreate app on his iPad before adding the finishing touches in Photoshop, show a whole lotta skin, and sometimes even subtle peeks at the character’s derriere. David’s art has garnered positive reactions far and wide — so much so that his Etsy shop, which sells prints of his sexy men superheroes, is constantly selling out. Ahead, admire David’s unique depictions of Star-Lord, T’Challa, Doctor Strange, and more. Our fingers are crossed for sexy Spider-Man and Hulk portraits soon!

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
