Is it cray cray to message a male model some images you drew of him based on his Facebook page unsolicited?

    So there's this hot model I've been a fan of for a while. He doesn't know me and is out of my league (nothing would ever happen), but while on his FB page today I came across an extrordinary hot picture of him that inspired me to draw him. As a few RJers know, after getting acquainted with some people I like to draw them if I find something interesting about them.

    After tellng my friend this he thought I was some lunatic stalker.

    Was it crazy (I'll admit, it was a bit stallkerish) to draw this picture and FB email it to the model unsolicited? And no we're not facebook friends so he"ll probably never see it.

    I see..but there was nothing sexual about my message to him. I just wrote "Some artwork inspired by you." I didn't mean anything flirtatious about it. I mean, nothing would happen between us in 1 milion years.


    To quote Prince

    "She's so cool, and I'm so ugly, I'd be a fool to think she could love me." LOL

    Some people would find it creepy, some would find it flattering. It depends.

    Well, a lot of guys on RJ are gym rats and love showing off their progress. I'm sure they're flattered when someone notices and decides to draw them. Makes sense.

    I'm sure your male model might feel the same way.

    Some people would find it flattering. Some people would find it creepy. It's best to ask first.

    I'd like to see the drawing.



    The artist is nothing without the muse, right?

    I'd love to show the work but it's not online it's just a jpg and I don't believe you can upload jpgs on realjock.

    No, it's just 14 year old girl behavior. Sign it , Amanda.

    All acts of affection can be perceived as either cute or creepy by the receiver.

    Don't worry about it too much. You're clearly not violating anyone's privacy or rights (he's a male model with his pics on the internet, all you did was draw one).

    Anyone in this thread would find that to be cute if they received it from the right person at the right time.

    Fans have been sending celebrities drawings of themselves for as long as there have been fans.

    It is not creepy. It is quite common.

    I would encourage some interaction first. Just contacting him and saying, "hey I drew you" would probably be a little odd. Sort of getting a couple of steps ahead of the game.

    I would say, if you want to be outgoing, but respectful, send him a note and tell him you've been a fan, your like his photo and as artist, would like to
    draw him (and tell him why). I would say adding things like, "you enjoy doing that sort of thing for friends" might help reduce the oddity of it.

    Just understand he may never respond and if not, draw him for your own enjoyment or just move along.

    Agreed. Present yourself as a fan, not a troll. It'll be fine.

    I had someone do a giclée piece of work based on a pic of me. Honestly, I was flattered. Would have liked to own it. I had a black leather harness, hat and gloves on and not much else. I really liked the spin he put on it. I wonder who owns that pic now, lol.

    Just keep in mind that that person has never heard about you. He has no idea what is going on in your mind and what are your intentions. It may come of as being a creep, specially considering he may be a constant "victim of actual creeps/stalkers".
