for all artists here on DA: This is AWESOME reference material - as long as you follow the rules and credit the originator! and YES the model does have beautiful ASSets...i could certainly use this as GREAT reference for my own drawings - she has a perfect body!!!
I know a model's whole career is keeping herself looking nice, I don't know if I could stand having a job I had to take home with me!
I think we're mainly upset because this is so mainstream. It's not a rare, artistic gem that shines because of how unique, inspirational, original, and well-done it is. It's what you see on the front page every single day, and it's uninspiring when there are a hundred pictures just like it; so it feels like this one is just the one that got shuffle-picked today.
We want something new, something we don't see every day, something that you can look at and totally remember exactly what artist did it!
I look at this and I don't see a unique, identifying feature; I see a butt. A part of the human body, something I google for a general idea of what butts generally look like. There's no face, no expressions, just a blonde girl showing her butt, which is nothing new.
We don't want stuff that's just lumped in with the crowd, we want something new and original that's popular because of that. We want something different!
And I never said it was original or good =] I just said that it IS art. And my original comment was more geared towards the guys on the first page of comments, arguing that it is not art. I see your point and agree with it. But I also believe that it IS art. lol
By the way, you people who are complaining about "What this place is becoming" and the fact, that pictures like this appear on the front page...
Have you actually seen what is on the front page??? Yes, in any given view of the front page, there's the odd chance that a picture like this might appear, BUT very seldomly mOre than one at a time... 9 out of 10 of the pictures on the front page is another one of the endlees row of badly done manga drawings... THAT is what DeviantArt i turning into..
Do you go to any of those pictures too, writing comments like "Oh, just another one of those badly done manga drawings"???
And by the way: It is quite possible to block selected gallery section from appearing on the front page... If you don't want to see naked skin, just block the gallery sections that show naked skin... End of story
i agree in some point with all of you, but you might consider that the girl in this picture isnt the person who owns the account....the person behind artoriginal is a man who takes photos of women in different ways. before you start discussions like that you might check out their profile. just to see it aint an attention whore, calling her own bum "art".
