Not Just A Sex Object by LJ-Phillips Not Just A Sex Object by LJ-Phillips
Originally in "Under My Skin Interlude 1" [link] they were going to be coming back from a work-out session and Vinnie was going to be shirtless. However, I decided against it for 2 reasons:

One - it was unnecessary fan service (sorry, girls and some guys)

Two - It gave the scene some -ahem- undertones between Vin and Rabbit ( esp. given Rabbit's expressions there) that weren't appropriate for that scene.

However, I couldn't resist adapting and posting the shirtless scene here in a little breaking-the-fourth-wall episode. Also, I got to draw an embarrassed Vinnie, which is alot of fun :)

Feel free to check out Skins [link] and the lighter companion strip "Under My Skin" 1 [link]

Be careful what you wish for, big fella - you get too demanding and you may find yourself in a corset, thinking that shirtlessness would definitely be the preferable option...

Vinnie's blushing!
and he looks pretty damn good without a shirt
and Rabbit...great smirk
he always looks good, naked or dressed

I know, right? Something we seldom see :) But then, Vinnie's not an exhibitionist like Rabbit.
Ah, so glad you think so :) I'm a fan of chest hair so it was fun to paint Vinnie shirtless. Obviously, Rabbit doesn't have chest hair etc because Smokes are pretty hairless and Tyr shaves most of his body hair off. 
Heh, Rabbit smirking at Vinnie's embarrassment. And shirtlessness. While some folks may say Vinnie sometimes views Rabbit like a substitute kid brother, I've never said that Rabbit's view of Vinnie is the least bit fraternal. 
Oh yes, he certainly does!

I like no chest hair, or light chest hair on my men, but Vinnie has the perfect amount for him. It's sexy.

I think that Rabbit views Vinnie as a fantasy bed partner, and if Jordan and Vinnie ever gave him the green light, he's would be there in a heartbeat.
Of course, now that he's finally with Tyr, I'm not sure if he would take it out of fantasy.

AH, you're like my sister :) I agree with you - I think this amount of chest hair suits Vinnie! So does Jordan ;)

You know, you're one of the few people to pick that up :squee: Certainly all of Rabbit's male bed partners bear an uncanny resemblance to Vinnie (big, burly Alphas etc) Oh, Jordan's always suggesting extras for the bedroom to Vinnie - you know, toys, handcuffs, Rabbit...Vinnie's response is normally a resounding NO!
True, true - I think that would be a deal-breaker for Tyr. He's pretty possessive of his Bunny and he would hate the idea of Rabbit and Vinnie.

I think Tyr could handle almost anyone in Rabbit's bed better than he could handle VINNIE in Rabbit's bed.

AWWHH, Vinnie you know that objectification of yourself is kindasorta fanservice that we all appreciate. very much

Hee hee, poor Vinnie. He thought Rabbit would be the only one ever painted shirtless ;)

Don't worry - I think Jordan's also pretty bad about objectifying the guys. I mean, there is the one time when they were wrestling and instead of acting as ref like she was meant to, she was filming in on her cell phone -
