All of the comments here are really kind of sad and mean. That's not what DeviantArt is for guys.

Personally do I believe this should of been a DD, no, but by no fault of the model (except for the right hand on the bottom image, soften it up a bit, it takes away from the fluidity of the rest of the body) . For me the photography is a bit flat and I'm not so into the lighting and composition choices. As an image I see where its going and I really like that, but I don't think that a DD should be chosen by potential of the image but rather the image as a whole.

This in no way is an attack, but seriously Laura, don't even feed the trolls. If you feel that they are wrong, don't even bother. Chances are that they are not professionals, not in the industry, and not really going to affect you in the long run. So don't sweat it.

why would I pay for something I never had any intentions of getting in the first place? Its not a contest you submit to, a photo I uploaded over a year ago randomly got chosen by the person who runs the fetish DD.

Somehow I think your life will continue.

Well I know the model & the photographer. He probably was trying to arouse. Does that mean it's not art?

I have no problem with nudity at all, I just felt that this picture was so bland and plain that the only point of it was to arouse. I got the wrong idea of what the artist was trying to say/do.

Like I said I always check out the DD. Even if it contains a category that doesn't interest me much... For example; I also don't really see what people like about modern art, I still look at it. Every piece of art deserves at least that much. If it's not to my liking, well that's just me, doesn't mean other people don't appreciate it. I simply look at a work of art. I'm no professional, so my opinion is simply that, my opinion. And yes, I will always first ook closely at a work of art, even if I don't like it, before forming my opinion.

And you have to admit, the amount of crotch shots on Devart have nothing to do with art. The piece in question was merely suggesting something, and thus much more tastefull than most of the nude art posted on devart.

The artist of whatever category did bother to make a piece of art for others to enjoy, so I will always make time to look closely at a work of art. Even art that's not to my liking.

I did read your entire comment. I didn't criticize you or attack you over it. I asked you a civil question about it. Why so defensive?

And you still didn't answer my question. You said Honestly I'm not much a fan of nude art.
Ok. Nothing wrong with that.
But since you're not, why check out the DDs in categories that contain it?

I'm not being critical, I'm curious.

I always check out the daily deviations.... And it struck me as odd that so many people were flaming without really saying what was wrong with the pictures. Which I why I gave my honest opinion. I'm neutral, and I clearly explained why.

If you actually bothered to really read my comment it was merely to point out to others to stop flaming/trolling. So please reread the last few words of my comment: "And if you don't like a piece of art, simply explain why, instead of flaming an artist, there's no good reason for flaming."

Well, this has been interesting.

Thank you: to those of you who said nice things. I appreciate it
Fuck you: to those of you who attempted to matter-of-factually proclaim that this is not "art". Fortunately for the rest of the free world, you dont actually get to make those kinds of concrete declarations, because what is and is not factually art is not up to you. You wanna know why? Because there is no all-encompassing definition of art, there is no black and white ruling as to what is and what is not. Youre free to tell me what you think of my work, youre not free to dictate what it IS and IS NOT, just what you THINK about it. But I can tell many of you didnt do a whole lot of that before typing.

And for those of you who are wondering "why post this image when I have so many other 'better' ones?"... heres the thing.

Deviant Art is not my modelling portfolio. I do not use dA, tumblr, FB, FL, etc etc to book work and try to impress the people I want to work with. Frankly those listed websites are just not set up in such a way that is conducive to the type of networking needed to be terribly useful in terms of my modeling as a job.

What they ARE good for, is putting up with that *I* like, but may not necessarily have a place in my working portfolio. This (and many other) photos probably wont get me a paying gig. Thats fine, thats not why I did them in the first place. I did them for fun. This was made possible by an evening with some dear friends who I enjoy being in the presence of any being a part in the creative processes of. I didnt make this to impress you, to try to sell you on buying prints of me or something, or to try to get hired by anybody. Dont be so full of yourself. I did this for ME. I posted it for ME because I enjoyed it and I like to share my enjoyment with the internet. Thats why I post photos that might not be the best of the best of the best of what Ive done, this is the EXACT place for them to go.

I judged you too quickly, I must admit. I do like the art you have posted, (I think it's called) Waves being my favourite. The reason why I don't like this photo is because it's just too, I don't know, plain. Compared to your other pictures, this is just meh.

good art, and mediocore art, are just as worthy of attention. If people didn't criticize the pieces that needed criticism . . . then art wouldn't grow or evolve.

Also I cant stand to see people insulted for "hating nudity" simply because they do not like a particular piece of nude artwork. As if all nude art was created equal and automatically great because the artist couldn't think of something for the model to wear.

as if photography was actually a higher form of art to begin with, sure lighting can be used to evoke emotion . . . but photography largely has to rely on the beauty of the model . . . . which is subject to natural forces, rather than any effort on the photographer themselves . . .

let me put it this way, this image sucks because you used a lackluster medium of art, to convey an emotionless scenario filled with cliches (nudity is cliche) . . .


which is sad because you are better than this . . . as demonstrated . . . by at least half of the rest of your gallery.

your gallery . . . despite being riddled with cliche, is better not bad, you show real potential with the ability to convey emotion. But the work seems to straddle the line between "okay" and "slightly better than okay"

but from what I am reading . . . you are only a model, so you likely are not working with consistent photographers. If I were you though . . . I would put this particular piece in the scraps, worth putting up . . .but not worth showing off to most people who come to look at your art.

No problem. You should be allowed to voice your opinion it wasn't bashing but suggesting. And I feel like this should also be on a type of pin up art thing, I don't really think its art, maybe the rope work but unless she is modeling the shoes for a store then I don t think there is any point. I see too many people that seem like they just randomly go "Oh hey, time to get naked put no work in a picture and make it a dd!" I have talked with some da people before and honestly I think it's more like school. There's the teachers pets and doctors kids and then there's us. Im not hating, just pointing out some views of point (said that way on purpose).

No, I just think if you bother to leave a comment, you should be polite or say nothing at all, because not everyone needs to like the same thing, and if it bothers you that something got a DD, you're being even ruder because the artist themselves didn't choose for that to happen :p

I think NOBODY ever needs to be mean, I'm tired of the attitude that being mean can be constructive in itself. No, no it can't, never has been, and never will be. *Ignoring* what you dislike accomplishes more than complaining at it :p

It was a good idea to restrict critiques to paying members because 99% of people who try to leave a critique end up being rude instead. "This sucks" isn't a critique. Nor is "I don't like this." :p

And I can't just let it go. Instead of a beautiful and inspiring art I must watch somebody's bad taste. Of course I'm mean. Everyone should be. In fact, I think that my rude and mean comments are more constructive than those where is praised the ass.

Besides, I would like to give a critique, but I can't because I'm not a premium member :) DeviantArt has turned to CapitalArt.

You're actually quite wrong there.
You're going off the assumption that ancient Romans were the first to construct Art when they were not.
There are cave drawings that date several hundred years before the Romans were even concieved.

But you obviously don't know what the meaning of the word is, let's give you a refresher course sha'll we?
Art noun. The creation of meaningful or beautiful objects through skill and imagination.
You're peace is only meaningful and/or beautiful to you therefore I repeat myself it is by no means Art BUT I respect the effort you put into making it.
