RENDERS - Probably going to be awhile before the next few...

Every so often I hit a bit of a flat spot. Lack of motivation and that.

So to that end I've completed a couple because they were either something I felt like or easy to do along the way.

Limited narrative this time, we'll lift that again in future also.

In the meantime, absent another motivation lift I'll be asking everyone for more patience than normal even.

Priya likes her choke holds, which is why in the first instance she's going for a pro style leg lock.

Later she's got a good defensive position from guard. Normally that's pretty safe. That assumes of course you know how to see the Ezekiel choke coming and defend same. Oops?

There's a really good breakdown of this technique here on YouTube.

Corveena gets hers back later. And then Jacelyn even gets a similar version (in reverse) on Kimiko of all people, from a standing position no less.

Nap times all around?

RENDERS - Over at Rival Angels

Ok, you already know all about Rival Angels.

So I'm already officially repeating myself.

Which is why none of you need to be told that you need (right now) to go here (the RA website) and check them out.

I'm humbled to have some of my renders put there.

Recent examples as follows.   :)

RENDERS - Corveena and Diana pins style

You can find out more about Corveena and Diana both here.

If you don't already know them you need to read up for (all of) the rest of this to make sense.

Mid tier roster members

Both have elite national grade backgrounds in amateur wrestling. In fact that's how they originally met.

A spiteful affair where Corveena basically managed to wrestle dirty better than Diana.

A long time ago and lot of water under the bridge all is cool now.

Talking about it the obvious question is, want to try that again?

Both still have a top flight game.

It's long and hard and dead even.

Then Corveena's shoulder blades both touch the mat.

"Yes!" is the response from Diana.

Corveena's response is a bit more chilly.

"You pulled my hair...."

"Oops." The grin is a pretty poor attempt at contrite.

"No hard feelings still?"

"Hmmm... Best of three? Keep it clean this time - yeah?"

"Ok."

Both are grappling clean again.

Corveena gets one of Diana's feet, and doing something Diana has seen only once before. She'd forgotten. Now she remembers...

And now she's on her back and her legs are tied in a knot with Corveena.

Twisting to keep one shoulder up, Corveena gets one arm under Diana's chin.

For anyone trying to keep up go read Diana's bio in the link about...

"Now this brings back some memories..."

Diana is trapped and going no place.

Except instead of making the choke illegal, Corveena does keep it clean.

Doesn't mean it's not rough. So leaning forward down onto the mat her arm scissors on Diana's neck.

Diana has two choices.

She can roll back to avoid choking out. That means a pin fall.

Or she can go to sleep...

The inspiration for this render is from the video here.


Freestyle pin

I'm unsure I have the words to explain how awesome this particular pin is. I'd only add that I hope the poor young woman who loses the fall is ok. It is no joy at all for me to see her upset or injured, which is odd because it is "something" for me to see her struggling the way she must before the eventual loss.

When all is done not much is settled today. At least it ends of a laugh. Still no hard feelings.

RENDERS - NSFW (seriously NSFW)

I'm unsure if anything I ever upload here is "SFW" per se?

Some things are definitely less "SFW" than others.

Some are simply NSFW full stop.

I'm going to wager these fall into the latter category.

If you scroll far enough down you will see what I mean.

As in topless.

And this isn't what was actually requested, it just seemed the way to go when I did them.

Fortunately this did not generate significant objection.

In response to a commission request from someone who deserves it, and then some.

My pleasure.

RENDER - Clearing up some things

Lena is trying out a green bikini for an upcoming fitness show when the other woman approaches her.

"Hi, you're new here."

Lena picks up that this is a statement, not a question. Lena checks out the person speaking to her pretty quickly, says "hi" pretty curtly, and resumes checking herself out.

The other woman, wearing a bikini also, gets to the point pretty quick.

"Let's roll."

Again this is not a question.

In fact it's not even an invitation. It's a statement of what's going to happen next.

Lena sighs and rolls her eyes. "Fine. Give me 5 minutes to change and I'll see you in the ring."

"I don't need to change and I don't need a ring. The mats right here will do fine."

 Now Lena is paying attention.

Ok.

Fit but not that big. Lena reckons she's got this.

-------------------------------------------

"So when was the last time you rolled with someone stronger than you were?"

Jessica shrugs, a little bit embarrassed.

"Now seriously, when was the last time you rolled with guys?"

"It's been awhile I guess."

Have you never rolled with a guy, one that had solid technique, that was stronger than you were?"

"Yeah."

"Did you manage to tap them out?"

"Yeah."

"And how did you do that?"

"By being better than them."

"Better how?"

"Faster, smarter, better technique."

Jessica is getting frustrated. She knows exactly where this is going and wishes someone would just get to the damn point.

"So trying to overpower someone that's stronger than you are doesn't work so good. You need to use better technique."

*sigh* "Yes."

"And you've gotten a bit lazy. Everyone you roll with these days; you're stronger than they are. And when someone powers up you guess you can just out-do them?"

"Ok - point made. For crying out loud you don't need to make it look that easy."

At which point there's a laugh.

"Well I've had a lot of practise rolling with someone that's stronger than me. If it makes you feel any better she is pretty good. Just not that good. But you were that stupid."

Jessica's temper rises a bit; no one likes being called stupid. "Are you going to let go of her?"

"Why should I? She hasn't tapped."

"We've talked about what I think when you pull this kind of B.S. on other people."

Lena still isn't quite sure what's going on, so Jacelyn fills her in.

"Nothing personal.  I wanted to see what you had going for myself. Now hurry up and tap out or I will put you to sleep. My girlfriend is angry and I need to make it up to her."

Lena has spent the past 15 minutes either getting swept from top position onto her back or defending an octopus that was latched onto her back. She was never even close.

Now she gets it.

Time to tap...

RENDER - (NSFW?) Something a bit differnt and jumbled, or is that jumbled and different...

It's been very hectic and a little weird in the real world lately.

All in a good way.

Just very much in a way.

I've said before (because it's very true) that all (almost all) women are beautiful.

Obviously there are some who are not so much so, but to me that is about attitude and personality ahead of anything physical.

This said, there are certain examples who do turn my head more than others.

Obviously I need to call out women like Ivy95 and Cassidy Bryce.

More generally though, there are certain physical traits that do give me pause more than some others.

So putting aside the long list of specific beautiful women I could name, who are all shapes and sizes. Slim and curvy. Buxom or not. Blonde or brunette. Long hair or short. Any ethnicity....


I think strong shoulders and a v-shaped back on a woman are awesome. A toned stomach? Yowch! Strong curvy legs and glutes.. Some (not too much) muscle definition!! Wowwwww....

So basically a woman that we'd now describe as a fitness model.

Now let me repeat. Almost all women are gorgeous.

With the exception of European runways models (*way* too skinny) and women who have lifted (and I daresay often taken drugs) to get super massive, not so much.

So no anorexia or looking like men for me.


Leading on, at the risk of dating and aging myself I tell everyone that I remember very clearly the first time I found the Michael Scott agency website online in the early 00's. All of those women were amazing. I did have a few faves and one quite specific fave after that.

This was also around the same time a company called Premier Productions was releasing wrestling videos of female bodybuilders and (again by today's definitions) fitness models.

They are still around - go check them out here at Premier Productions online.

I had one very specific fave among the Premier Production models also. Yes a lot of these matches were topless (not normally so much my thing). Also often the technique was, well, pretty non-existent. She was wont to use a sleeper hold with some frequency though...

So for all of that, over the last few months another OC has entered my mind and this one has made it to naming and bio, and that has even led to a little side story...

-----------------------------------------------

Lena was originally a law student, paying her bills clerking at a local firm.

She was always a gym and fitness junkie. She particularly enjoyed lifting weights.

Not a power lifter, not quite. Closer to a bodybuilder.

At one point she did get a bit bigger, but then she decided she didn't like that so she cut back.

So she had the figure of what we now know to be a fitness model.

And because she could she even got herself breast implants.

One day she sees an ad looking for fitness models. Lena has always been outgoing and looking at herself asks the obvious question. Why not me?

Turns out the correct term is why not indeed.

She's going really well and, one day, discovers that she can make a career as a model and personal trainer.

Basically she gets paid for doing her true passion.

Hanging around the fitness model circuit there are a few interesting elements on the periphery. Lena is open minded so she has no problem with women who make a few extra dollars wearing less than a full bikini. So do more than that. Again she's cool.

It's just not for her.

And then one of the other models asks her about wrestling.

"Like in mud or oil?"

No. Legit and it's competitive no less. There's more to be made if she's willing to do it topless but if she wants to try she can wear a one piece suit, just the more revealing the better...

So Lena gives it a go.

And gets her ass kicked in the process...

Well that won't do.

So Lena decides to find a place where she can learn to wrestle, and ends up in a BJJ acadamy.

That was over a decade ago. Lena still goes to the same place for lessons.

Three times a week.

She also runs her own fitness studio and does seriously well as a personal trainer and physio therapist (changed majors obviously).

Her nick name at the first place is "monster".
Between black belt technique, size, and power... Well if she gets you on your back on the mats that nickname makes very clear sense indeed....



Of course Lena ends up in the gym. Watching for a bit she finally makes up her mind.

There is a protocol to these things. It's not a hostile or mean thing. It's just that in a place like this when someone calls out you accept. No hard feelings. Just time to roll.

Lena is still a bit nervous and holding back a bit.

Big mistake.

Jessica has her back like that. And before either even break a sweat she's planted face down on the mat and tapping out.



Jessica notices that she's dealing with a power house. Lena got on all fours like nothing and was crawling around. Lena's only mistake was not knowing that Jessica is a power lifter. What that means is that Jessica has leg and back power off the charts, hence the fact she can still stretch out Lena.

Lena has that one now and asks to go again.

This time Jessica gets guard....

Then Jessica gets monstered.

Making the mistake of letting ego in Jessica tries to combat power with power.

By the time she realises what a mistake that was she's gassed and Lena is still going strong.

Lower body back and legs Jessica can go with anyone.

Upper body, no one can out power Lena.

So once Lena gets the arm bar there's only one of two things to happen next.

Jessica pulls her arm out, she is a powerhouse and has even escaped her sister's arm bars that way a few times, or not.

Jessica's arm does feel like it's pulling out.

Of its own shoulder socket.

Time to tap.

Lena asks, "Best of three?"

Jessica answers, "Definitely, but not today. I think my shoulder is twinged."

Lena is genuinely apologetic. She wasn't trying to hurt anyone.

"It's cool. Give me a little while and we'll figure it out."

Hands shaken and no hard feelings...

--------------------------------

Or so it seems?

Later Jessica and Jacelyn are hanging by the pool at Marielle's place. Without warning Jessica grabs Jacelyn around the neck.

"What the hell?"

Jessica is actually stewing over the arm bar earlier. She grappled strong and stupid.

Was it just arrogance or, would Lena still take her even if she'd gone smarter?

"I'm in a lousy mood. Just tap and I'll stop."

Jacelyn has gotten to know Jessica pretty well. She decides a tap isn't what's needed.

Jacelyn has already gotten one leg out of place so it's almost easy for her to spin out and get into Jessica's half guard.

And now Jessica is asking, "What are you doing?!?!?"

Jacelyn laughs. "Just tap and I'll stop..."

Jessica doesn't tap. She's not speaking right now either...

Jacelyn doesn't laugh this time. She just brings her mouth down on Jessica's...

RENDER - Cassiy (and Corveena) again

Really, does this even need a narrative?

Go check out the real live (and much better article) here:

cassidybryce.deviantart.com

And again my thanks to the awesome and gorgeous and lots of other superlatives woman.  :)

That is all.   :)
