i was told at another site that nudity and art should not mix. this left me feeling quite confused because i feel the human form is art and we were all born naked. how would i paint a beautiful woman without showing all her wonders? can you imaging the statue "david" with a loin cloth? i know i cant be the only one out there that thinks nudity is acceptable in art as it does in nature..any support out there?

Hi. You have got my support too. You need paint what you want and your talent ask for. I'm a artist too and understand what you mean. All censorship is stupidity. Exist many kinds of art; if you like, well. If you don't like well too. So, don't care about that.

it's perfectly acceptable in my eye,as long as they keep the different styles separate. i sell on one of the art sites,and people are always trying to sneak hardcore by. i have no problem with hardcore either,but 1 wrong pic can get a site shut down.

thank you scarlet_woman for your reply..i did not understand when you said " keep different styles seperate"? what makes something "hardcore"? can someone be hard core by themselves? i was searching around the web today and saw that hoorid dying dog "crap" and was feeling so much better about my own style..i would love a pm link to see your images:)
