Of Nudes And Prudes by AK-Is-Harmless Of Nudes And Prudes by AK-Is-Harmless
Recently there's been a lot of backlash towards people on deviantART submitting nude photography. I've seen way too many forum topics about the subject. While I respect everyone's right to their own opinion, I think it goes a little too far when people start calling others' artistic abilities or motives into question, all because they don't like to see naked bodies. There are far more constructive ways of expressing an opinion that don't involve being a jerk. Can't we all just get along? :cries:

So enjoy Ben asking a pointless question, a guy making an unfair comparison, a girl being a jerk, and Winslow contributing absolutely nothing worthwhile. :D

(And keep an eye on the girl. You'll see her again.)

Has anyone ever noticed that in ancient times, almost all sculptures and drawings were nude. And then all of the sudden it's a crime to draw nude art or have a character showing a little skin.

Some people don't even like those older works, either. :)

Then those people need to grow up. We'll like what we like and they can like what they like. You see nudity and scantly clad people everywhere nowadays, a few complaints won't change that. And I agree with what you said in the description thingy, it's ok to state your opinion, but calling other people's motives or artistic abilities into question is going a little too far.

Finally, nudes are important to understand the human body for both anatomy and realism. I can understand if your sick of seeing nude pictures posted on a crappy resolution camera, but otherwise it's not all that perverted.
If you go into a figure drawing class expecting the models to wear clothes, your gonna have a bad time.

I don't know if she's being a "bitch" here since, well, somehow underlying the liberties is a pattern that supposedly involves so many naked women...But nothing wrong with "horny male 'artists'" if you ask me! :D
