I love artistic nude.
I love what the human body can do.
I love using it as an accessory for a good shot.
I would do artistic nude much more often that I actually do.
Every so often, I will have a look at the Photography/Artistic Nude category of DA.
Not the most popular, but the newest deviations.
I may be naive, but I still feel like DeviantArt is a community about... ART.
But what I see, too often, looks more like a pr0n site that an ART community.
Snapshot of dicks and pussies, and I'm not even talking about those not even in focus, or all blurry, claiming it's art! (yeah right, you just want to you yourself off, but you don't assume it completely).
I'm a huge fan of dicks, but those deviations are just gross.
I'm really not a fan of pussies, but I'm able to appreciate a nice artistic shot of the female private part.
I know we can't define art precisely. Everyone express their art as they please.
But I think we can all realize when a picture is just someone who wants to show his/her genitals.
Of course, with that kind of shots, you'll have comments.
We're still human and sex sells.
Of course a close up of a pussy will make some men hard, they'll like it (yay, free pr0n!) and comment.
Most of us are not asexual. So it's normal that those shots attract users attention. (Most of the time though, they are guys, and it's a 15 pictures set of their dicks, names 1,2,3,4,5,6 and so on.)
But.. please... I'm sure there are a LOT of websites where you can put pictures of your naked body (or, like 95% of those pics, only the genitals, because there is NO WAY you'll show your face, right? ).
DeviantArt is an ARTISTIC community.
Can we keep it that way?
My two cents.
