It was five years ago on this night, September 16th, 2006, that I was kissed by a muse. I had watched the movie "Xanadu" for the first time, and almost immediately after logging on the web, my friend :iconhigalack: introduced me to a big muscle girl with great proportions and super-cute pigtails. That girl was Layla K. Richardson...and the rest is history. It's bizarre that five years later that this girl would be one of my most well know...but somehow I think Kira had something to do with it.

Now, five years later, after a great week of looking back and rewatching the movie that started the whole thing (still as fun as ever...but then again I'm one of the few people who admits to liking "Xanadu" for the millions who say it's terrible), a new Layla pic...but a special one. Not merely a random pic of Layla during a stage of her growth...but an actual, female muscle growth sequence of Layla growing from cuteness to massive cuteness! And the bringer of this sequence: :iconb9tribeca:, the artist behind my recent Sheri/Brownie TF and one of the big femmuscle artists of recent times! (some would probably note one massive difference between this Layla and how I typically depict her but...I always let artists have their own say on a character to not impede. Thus...yeah, it should be obvious but it's still great) I wish I sort of had a tale to tell tonight alongside it but...a tale is coming, believe me on that one! While I don't write as much for her as I used to, she still is one of my favorite characcters and I'll always remember her and everything associated with "that night" for a long time! And I thank every and all people, from the artists to the fans, who have supported me and Layla for all this time...considering she probably was my first true star on this DA as well! A big thanks and may many more commishes and (really stupid) stories come!

no one had better be knocking on Xanadu - I really liked that movie as well :)

so which muse kissed you? ONJ? :)
Reply
:iconstrangerataru:
Strangerataru Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
My guess is it was Kira...besides, muses are strange taking whatever form that pleases them. I'd say ONJ except people would consider me nostalgic and probably not of this era...which I am accustomed to in this day and age. Who even knows what sort of muse people would imagine today...well depends on who you ask or what type of thing they're into because it could be cute to downright wrong.

I'm afraid if I ever create my own muse character it's going to ruin the luck I have had though.

Dude, don't bitch or talk about how it's impossible. It's art; let the artist have his way with his character. If you don't like it, don't look at it.

No, he doesn't mean the muscles are too large, but that some of them don't exist. Entire muscle groups have been added that simply aren't present in human beings.

Respectfully and sincerely, then, I must ask, "So?"

It hurts willing suspension of disbelief, among other things. Especially when not consciously recognized, can create awkward feelings of "this doesn't feel right." Etc.

If one doesn't care about such things, then no, it doesn't matter. I cannot speak for the original post in regards to why it may have upset him or her.

I'm sure, though, that he/she would be surprised that a complete stranger came to their defense. For that, I sincerely tip my hat to you.
