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

I’m Raz Toermentor and I make 3D images portraying tickling, foot BDSM and slapstick. Most of the scenarios I create revolve around me and my wife Tickletou having fun with BDSM in various forms, but I also create scenarios with adult video games characters for my Patreon and DeviantArt.

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

I mainly use a 3d software called Daz3d which is a program that allows me to create my scenes. It’s a very intuitive piece of software that relies on posing and morphing already existing models but the possibilities of it are actually huge. Whatever I can’t get I make using Blender and I use Photoshop for retouching and added effects like smoke and motion blur. I used to draw actual pictures but I mostly stick to 3d now since that is what I know best and my fans enjoy the most.

There are many artists that inspired me since the beginning: FTKL, Cheshire Caterling, Kamiano, RedScript77, GrippedChimp just to name few. But the one that inspired me (and still does) is BAC. His art made me fell in love with tickle art and for sure had a huge impact on my taste in scenarios. I absolutely adore his style and I draw a lot of inspiration from his stunning art.

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

I always liked to draw and create stuff since I was a kid, especially tickle stuff. I found it to be my way to create scenes and comics I was unable to find anywhere. My fascination with tickling started when I was around 8 years old with the scene that created like 85% of ticklers today: The April O’Neil scene from the episode “Case of the Hot Kimono”. That was the moment I realized that I like tickling women’s feet. I’m not sure how much of my passion for tickling was developing earlier than that but that episode was clearly a milestone in the development of my fetish.

Since then I would be on the lookout for similar scenes on TV and in all media and eventually I started to draw my little tickle comics on torn out pieces of paper that I would take out from my school notebooks. Unfortunately none of them survived. After I got my own computer that was powerful enough to handle 3d software I made the jump to 3d images. I’ve been making 3d fetish content for myself for over 11 years now.

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

My favorite scenarios include my wife in peril in some sort of fantasy/medieval setup. All of which revolves around her feet being tickled for various, nonsensical reasons. I find those to be the most fun for me since they are a fetish love letter to her. I try to include her in most of my work, whether in her goblin or human form. I made tickling scenarios with her since the very beginning of my 3d work because she is really my muse without who I would not be making anything. She was the one that encouraged me to go public with my work and so the things I make now that people get to enjoy are thanks to her.

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?

I think I’m best known for my expressions of laughing hysteria. The thing I focus on the most in my images is to make tickling seem torturous and intense, so I include a lot of bondage and torture scenarios. I don’t do soft tickling, it’s just not my interest. I think I’m a bit more of a sadist than a tickler. My wife is very ticklish and I like to show that in my art. I also think it is thanks to BAC who’s characters always had the best expressions of hysteria. I would like to add thou that even thou I portray “torture” scenes I always intend to make sure people know it’s a consensual role-play and not actual “torture”. To me BDSM is about testing your limits but it is still a way of a sexual play.

The relationship between the tickler and the ticklee is also one of the things I try to focus on and it is something I really want to make sure it comes across in my art. To me tickling is a great way to enhance and enrich a relationship between real life partners and I want to use my art to promote that message. I know my marriage would not be as exciting and filled with love and trust if it wasn’t for BDSM and tickling so I’m very grateful that it is part of my life. And just to make it clear… my wife was NOT a tickle person (or a fetish person in general – a good ol’ vanilla girl) when we met 😉 Ask her!

6) I see that most of your subjects are women in the pillory being tickled at the feet. Are these real medieval torture scenarios or “historical fakes”?

Good observation! Again none of what I do is “real torture”, it’s more of a BDSM role-play in a medieval setting, so I think it’s safe to say those are “historical fakes”. I draw my inspiration from other artists and TV shows and pretty much anywhere I can get inspiration from. I think the work that made me do what I do was BAC’s “History of Tickling”. I think of my scenarios similarly to what he did in that book… seems real but it’s just a fantasy.

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

I think for most of us it’s a fetish that we didn’t choose so the interest here is obvious… we are wired to like and desire it. It’s hard to tell what would be interesting in this subject for somebody without this kink or fetish. I know however, that even people who are not fetishists or kinksters could greatly benefit from adding tickling into their love life. It’s a tremendous way to build trust in sexual play, it’s very erotic even for somebody outside the lifestyle, and also it’s a great gateway into BDSM for people who want to try it out and see if that is something they like.

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

That is a layered question for me. When it comes to being proud of the overall skill and composition it’s usually the latest sets I make since I always try to one up myself with every image. Recently my favorite set for that reason is my “Gorean” set. However the images I come back to the most are my anniversary images, my Halloween set and my Valentine’s set, so I would say my seasonal images. I like those the most because they were 100% inspired by my relationship with my wife and they feel most in tune with the reason I started to make stuff.

9) I see that you often represent female goblins being tickled. Is tickling in the fantasy world highly appreciated?

I’m glad you asked that question so I can finally set something straight. I’m not into goblins per say 😄 I just like their design and I feel they portray our kinky, fetish lifestyle very well. Goblins are mischievous and kinky, and I’m a fan of Warcraft goblins ever since I was 8 so I feel those go hand in hand. The reason I made me and my wife into goblins was to separate the real life and fantasy. I’m a private person with a job and a family so I didn’t want people to look at my images and figure out who we were since I tried to make our 3d models as close to what we look like as I could, so dropping a goblin filter on it seemed like a great solution. But now it has grown on me and I think it’s a great avatar, so I’m keeping it 😊. Also, contrasting pink soles on a green skinned goblin girl look extra ticklish in my opinion 😉.

I’m often very surprised on how good of a reception I get whenever I make my goblin-centric scenes as I would assume people are not into that kind of stuff. I also get some requests to drop the whole goblin shtick and just do humans but… I won’t. There will be always room for green skins in my art.

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

I think AI is just a tool, and like any tool it can do a lot of good but also a lot of bad with it, depending on how you use it. I don’t think it will ever replace traditional art, since humans are able to portray emotions and make art that will shake you to your core or at least resonate with you to some level. I don’t think AI will ever be capable of that. It is here to stay and there is very little that can be done to change that. With that said I think that truly creative people will use it to be able to achieve even greater heights in their professions and use it as a valuable tool in their work. When it comes to tickle content I think, there will be a lot more of it since many people will now be able to turn their ideas into a visual medium, which can be inspiring to others and enrich the subject in the long run.
