Combative women by Pauline Goodwyn



Pauline Goodwyn from United Kingdom is a well-known 3D digital artist. In the large DeviantArt community her nickname is 'PaulineG1'.

Pauline’s favorite artistic subject is combative women. She knows the ropes: being an athlete herself in her early years, she enjoyed practicing several sports not common for girls a couple of decades ago: wrestling, boxing, football (soccer). Besides, she is a sports fan and frequent sporting event visitor. Pauline was a decent amateur boxer in the earliest days of female boxing – when it was not taken too seriously and it was difficult to find a gym to train or an opponent to fight. Although then women’s boxing was not as unrelenting as it is now, she fought in full force giving her opponents good beating. Then Pauline became a distinctive character in the virtual boxing: she was chosen as a featured fighter by Denav, a pioneer in the digital arts, where she participated in a few boxing matches, particularly distinguishing for her victory over Lacy Jones by an impressive knockout. After that Pauline began her own artistic career (as a hobby) depicting combative women (including herself) practicing boxing, bare-knuckle fighting, wrestling and catfighting. In fact, Pauline handles herself without gloves – she does not hesitate to depict herself losing a bout or suffer an injury.

She kindly authorized us to use her artworks to illustrate the unique "manual" for female recreational combat written by famous Barbara the doctor: "Go and Fight".Moreover, she created new illustrations and adjusted some old ones. The great digital artist in the combative genre measures up the great amateur wrestling enthusiast!

You depict combative women very knowledgeably. Do you use photographs as models?

I do look at a lot of photographs, especially of boxing, and try to get my pictures from similar view points of real time photographers. So, I tend to have quite a few pics from low camera angles as if viewing from up through the ropes from the ring apron, obviously if I am trying to tell the story of a whole fight I sometimes have to pull back and look from higher up to show where they are in the ring.

Please describe your methods creating artworks.

Using a 3D program called 'Poser', I start with a base figure, then I modify that to look the way I want it, I have a lot of ready-made faces that I can adjust which does make life a bit easier then I work on the bodies making them fatter thinner more muscly or whatever, add a skin texture to suit for my own avatar its usually a really pale skin, dress them or not as the case may be I have a massive library of pre made clothing and hair props. Once I have the character figure the way I want, I can then pose them, think of the figure as a very advanced computerized 'Barbie doll' or 'Action Man' ('GI Joe' in the US). After the figures are posed I have to set the lighting and then render (photograph) the result. If I'm lucky it comes out the way I want, if not I go back make a few adjustments or alter the lighting and render it again/ Finally I post the results on 'Deviant Art' and add a description.

What is special for you about women practicing boxing or wrestling?

Ah well, I grew up in a time when women boxing or wrestling was seen as something that just wasn't done; young ladies played tennis but they didn't try to punch each other’s lights out, and women wrestlers were thought of as a freaky side show or borderline porn. I was tomboy, I played football and fought with the boys and could never understand why boxing and wrestling was taboo for girls.

Why did you select this subject for your artworks? What attracts you in women's physical contest?

Kind of by accident, being bored and playing around with the 3D figures, I made a pic of two women fighting; I quite liked the result and posted it on my old Yahoo blog. It got more comments than anything else and many requests for more and soon I was illustrating other people’s ideas and short scenarios (I was originally using the 3D software to create more interesting things for the wall displays in the school where I worked. I can't draw or paint with traditional mediums but the software gives me a nice head start.)

Do you remember when you depicted fighting women for the first time?

Would have been sometime in 2007 and extremely primitive compared to what I do now.

Can you tell us something about your family? Does your husband support you in your hobby?

Married for 29 years with three grown up sons. I am a former debt collector, currently working in the security industry. My husband is retired and thinks my pics a bit odd while he spends his time playing with trains or toy soldiers. :-)

Have you ever practiced any combat sport?

Yes, when I was in my late teens, I joined a wrestling/self-defense class for girls but I was more into playing football - then girls' football was just taking off and I was a pretty good central defender. Then I practiced some amateur boxing: at that time, women’s boxing was not taken too seriously (except by my ring opponents :-)) and it was difficult for a girl to find a gym to train or an opponent to fight. All my fights were held in the gym: each bout consisted of tree one-minute rounds. Frankly, I never quite grasped the defense, I preferred stormy rush and attacks; that way I lost some of my fights although I always did put my opponents on their bum. I also did a boxing fitness class after my last son was born, which was quite good fun.

At that time, what other people thought about a girl who wanted practicing boxing?

It was thought of as weird and we weren't taken seriously at all in any so-called "male sports"; as for boxing if I had walked into a gym as teenager and said I wanted to box, once they had stopped laughing they would have thrown me out. A lot has changed in the last 30 years though.

Do you have any experience in so-called recreational wrestling - the activity which was promoted by famous Barbara the Doctor whose page on our site is so well illustrated by your artworks?

Yes, apart from when I was a teenager, I had a friend (unfortunately no longer with us) that I used to wrestle with for fun and it helped keep us fit. After I became married, I wrestled my husband time to time (under special rules to counter him being stronger than me and make it fairer).

You just mentioned football (soccer). How long and serious was your involvement in the sport?

I played football for years in one of the first women's leagues, it was one of the things that attracted my husband. Now when I get the chance I watch my youngest son play - he is a really good player and top scorer in his league this year now he is playing for a reasonably talented side.

Are you watching competitions in combat sports?

Yes, thanks to my father (he wanted a boy) I grew up watching boxing and wrestling every Saturday on TV when we weren't at football matches. Dad was a huge fan of Muhammad Ali. I still watch a lot of boxing on TV. At a friend’s wedding reception once I even disappeared with half the men that were there to watch Barry McGuigan win his world title.

Do you consider physical combat as a good activity for women?

Yes, as long as it is in a safe controlled environment.

Why are you depicting only female boxers and wrestlers?

I do mostly female characters because that's what I have been asked to do and each new set gets more requests to see 'girl A against 'girl B' in whatever contest. I have done a male boxing match too but it's not posted on DeviantArt as I did it before I joined it and lost the files when my hard drive died last year. Also I am not very good at making my own props and the male figures aren't so well supported by the excellent artists that make and sell 3D content.

Why the most of your combative women fight topless or even nude?

My boxers are topless mostly because it far easier to depict them that way, clothing models don't always stay in the right place when I repose the figures and it can be time consuming and fiddly to refit tops each time I move someone. There is probably a very simple solution to the problem but I haven't found it yet.

Do you consider women's combat activities erotic even for a mature married woman?

Don't think of boxing as erotic – it is more feral and exciting; wrestling on the other hand is a much more sensual and I have to confess sexy activity.

Do you mean the activity which Barbara calls ‘sexfighting’ or you experienced some feelings as a spectator?

I don't really understand sexfighting, however wrestling is terrific foreplay. As I said, I wrestled my husband and we had some wonderful sex after.

What is erotic about combative women? Why fighting women turn many men even more than women in other activities?

I think fights no matter what sex is involved are a very primitive thing and stir up basic instincts to want to mate with the strongest partner, like with most other animals it’s all down to survival of the fittest. The one odd thing I don't get is men that want me to depict their wives or girlfriends losing a fight.

I guess though, many men like delicate fragile women but since contemporary western women are quite strong, they might dream about their loved ones being defeated. But defeated not by the brute male force but by another woman.

As for blokes wanting their wives girlfriends to lose, I think that is more to do with them secretly wanting something better, or what they think is better but I don't really know it just seems strange to me, if I was in a fight I would expect my husband to want me to win.

We have a page illustrating boxing techniques with old Denav’s artworks. I have come across a few old virtual boxing illustrated reports with you made by Denav. You looked great and your victorious fight with Lacy Jones was incredible. Good job! You are powerfully sexy! ;) Actually, Denav depicted you much heavier than you depicted yourself and bigger than you really are. Do you know Denav?

Yes, I know the boxing illustrations which have been done by the excellent Denav; he put me in a couple of his stories and he is one of the best story tellers too. His images may look primitive but there is a lot of stuff in them that he made himself, also he uses or did use "Poser 4" a very early version of the same software I use, I am currently using "Poser 10".

I noticed that you do not hesitate to depict Pauline losing fights, having black eyes, bleeding nose or skin bruises at the breasts. Don't you feel bad about that?

Pauline loses fights because no one is invincible, it would get very boring if she always won, the bloody nose is because I am prone to them.

Would you like to participate in creating a page illustrating various boxing moves and positions? Since the most of your boxers are topless, let them be topless...

My knowledge of boxing is limited to what I learned in my boxing class and what I see watching the fights, however I do have access to a qualified boxing coach, my middle son did an ABA boxing course to add that to his collection of qualifications as a multi sports coach. So, we can try in the future.

Being familiar with photographs of real Pauline Goodwyn, we witness that artist PaulineG1 created a perfect likeness of herselfl!
Denav's Pauline (see below) also resembles the original but the real Pauline is more feminine and not that heavy.
