1) Do you want to tell us something about yourself and your art?

Hi, I’m Jynthewise. In my personal life, I like to dabble in writing, and I listen to music and play a lot of video games in my spare time!

Leggi tutto: Tickle Artistis #8: Interview with Jynthewise

I’ve been in the tickling community since I was in high school, and I knew I always wanted to make stuff to share my love of tickling with others. What used to hold me back was the fact that I couldn’t draw, but then I discovered MMD (MikuMikuDance) and found that I could manipulate models to make pictures and animations, so for the past three or four years that’s what I’ve been doing!

2) What techniques do you use to draw? Do you have a favorite artist that inspires you?

MMD is what I use most. I find it doesn’t take much to make an animation with it, certainly not a still image, but what it does take is patience and inspiration. My biggest inspirations when it comes to tickling animations are cesar3o0, Anitickle, and Elektratouch. Their work is so beautifully done that it makes me want to be a better animator!

3)How much was the passion for drawing born in you? And the one for the tickle?

I knew I always wanted to do something artistic even before I knew I was into tickling, but drawing was too intimidating for me because I could never get it just right or settle on a style that felt 100% me. Writing seemed to be more up my alley since I felt I could best express myself through words, which also led to me getting interested in roleplay! As for tickling, I’d always loved it since as far back as I could remember. There was a time though when I didn’t want to believe it was a fetish since I’d associated the word “fetish” with being weird and I just wanted to be normal. But as I got older and started surrounding myself with people that were into tickling the same way I was, it helped me learn to embrace that part of myself more!

4) What are the tickling scenarios that you prefer to represent?

I enjoy depicting scenarios that I often fantasize about, like group tickling and such. But my favorites are more playful scenarios, where tickling is done as part of a game or as a means of teasing someone. I’m very much into the NSFW side of tickling, but I try to walk a fine line between SFW and NSFW since I feel a fun mix of both could help those outside the community better understand why tickling is such a big thing for us.

5) What are the aspects of tickling that you intend to represent with your art? Example: the laughing, the wriggling, the relationship between tickler and ticklee?

The two aspects of tickling I tend to focus on are mischief and trust. I have a series of pics and animations called “The Tickle Table”, where they mostly just involve a character being strapped to a table and tickled all over their bodies by robotic hands; I love doing these because there’s a playful mischievous aspect of the scenario that is quite attractive to a lot of people. But dedicated tickling sessions between two or more people involves them having to trust each other to let themselves be vulnerable to them, so that’s something I definitely want to make sure is present in most of my work.

6) Online there are countless photos and videos of tickling sessions. In your opinion, what do illustrations offer more than images of real scenes?

When someone watches a video of a girl dressed as April O’Neil or Harley Quinn being tickle tortured, they might get some enjoyment out of it, but it’s still just a girl dressed as April O’Neil or Harley Quinn and you know they’re just pretending to be those characters. With drawings and animations, you can actually have April O’Neil or Harley Quinn being tickled. It doesn’t require you to use your imagination, you can actually see the real character in those situations. I think art also allows you to be more creative with the scenario. There’s no limit to who can tickle who, where they are, or what’s going on. I think it’s the thought of someone creating every aspect of the piece, and the way their enthusiasm comes through in their work, that also makes it much more appealing.

7)In your opinion, what makes tickling so interesting for fans of this phenomenon?

I can only speak for myself, but I think what makes tickling so appealing is that it’s intimate and also very playful. It makes you feel powerful when you tickle someone, but being in an environment where you can also feel comfortable giving up power, and trusting someone enough to let them have power over you, is a very freeing experience! I think it’s a very healthy way of releasing stress and just letting yourself laugh and have fun!

8) What are your works of which you are most proud?

I’m proud of all the work I do! If anything, just to see how people react to it! Since I started, my goal has been to help people like me learn to embrace the tickle-loving part of themselves the way I eventually learned to do. And to hear people tell me how much my work means to them, and how much I’ve inspired them, is genuinely humbling and moving! I will say, though, the stuff that’s the most satisfying for me to complete are the animations because they take a lot of time for me to do. And of them, I’m quite fond of the group tickling pieces!

9)Do you have any particular artistic goals for the future?

I just want to keep being true to myself and bring more smiles to people’s faces. Personally though I hope I can improve as an animator because, if more people are going to pay attention to my work, I should make it better for them. In a perfect world I’d like to help contribute to a movement to normalize the tickling community and show people that it can be a fun and joyous one. I feel like a lot of members of this community have been ridiculed for being into tickling at some point in their lives, and that makes them feel like being into tickling is wrong somehow. So I want to help them realize that there’s nothing wrong with it at all, and show others why it isn’t wrong!

10) ) Do you think AIs will end up enriching or impoverishing the art of tickling representations?

This is a pretty difficult question because I genuinely think AI is capable of some pretty amazing things. But I’ve experimented with it before, and whether it’s an issue with the software or me not giving it enough information to work with, I don’t think AI is at a point yet where it can naturally generate that kind of artwork. I also don’t believe people should rely on AI to do all the work for them if they want to be an artist. Not to say it can’t be a useful reference tool or something like that, I just don’t think AI should be used as a substitute for work put in by actual human beings. Whether you’re confident in your skills or not, you shouldn’t let them hold you back. It shouldn’t matter if you use Microsoft Paint or Photoshop, find what works best for you and work with it.
