Entangled Shapes of Feet, Veins, Olive Tree Roots, etc


I was always wondering, since English is not my mother tongue, how to express in words about qualifying adjectives for shapes in feet, in veins, the same as some "capricious" olive tree roots: freaky? funky? crazy? kooky, weird? I was trying Google translation with images related, and the closest result I found for this was the adjective "entangled" or "tangled", although in spanish it doesn't sound satisfactory to me, because it just means "twisted together in a confused mass". I rather like the expression "capricious shapes" but the adjective word in english seems to be applied for unmature female behavior, so I am even more confused. Would someone help me on this? To put an example, for this cowboy's "extreme arched" feet: is it vaild to say that he has capricious-shaped feet or what???

I don't know, english is not my mother tongue neither, but I think that what you want to express is more than clear in your wonderful drawings.

Well my problem is when I gotta explain something in my interviews, I gotta think on how to tell this or that in american or british english, some things like the origins or reasons or contents behind each drawing. I love to talk about shapes and physonomy and that's even more complicated.

Capricious describes behavior, not objects. Veiny, muscular, abused, broad, masculine all come to mind in viewing your artwork.

Oh thank you, Jay... but what about the arabesque's shapes or the crazy roots of an oak tree???

Hello Mr. Feet!
It strikes me that the feet in the drawing you've posted here have a similar curve to the back of a bucking horse or a leaping whale. I would recommend adjectives from the animal kingdom. Bucking, breaching, thrashing, leaping, twisty, mountainous, thunderous, pounding and swooping all speak of the wild energy and motion of your art. I think you have spectacular taste in men and a beautiful talent. You've made me more interested in men's feet! My fetish is more focused on hair, pectorals, and great rubbery nipples to play with, and your artwork certainly works on those points as well! Thanks for your great and sexy work.
