This is so disturbingly beautiful, that I can't take my eyes off it. This photo hits me hard deep inside, and made me quite emotional when I first laid eyes on it. Without a doubt, this is by far the best, emotional, and coolest picture I've seen on DeviantART.

At first I didn't understand the intent of the image, and perhaps I still don't...but is it a commentary on the awkwardness of being naked?

The strange straight ahead but awkward sitting pose is what got me thinking of the .possible commentary. The lace and feathers, I still don't understand, but then again, who was it that said art is good art if it makes you think or feel a need to discuss it.

This piece isn't the kind of art I would want to display in my home, but it would make a fantastic discussion image in a college art course.

BTW, I don't get why people are like OMFG a penis! Who cares?

PENIS!

Quick, where are my smelling salts?!

*sigh*

Seriously. People need to get over the whole naked thing. This isn't the sort of photography I normally go for but it was intriguing enough to have a looksee... And ain't the idea of art? I would shift it out of the "fashion portraits" category though. This is more concept stuff.

It is really nice to finally see a male model, it's not seen often enough in DDs. Great work. My first impression was " What the hell?" But. I like it. Its interesting. Interesting is good. :)

I don't really understand what the artist is trying to say, which is why I find this unappealing, but I don't understand how women are accepted as an art form and men aren't?

Very beautiful. i love how you have the small bit of dark feathers hidden underneath the lace. it makes good contrast.
i also enjoy the messiness of the lace. you can definitely pull this off.
it is lovely.

Its nice to see male models on here every now and then. And for the haters, if seeing a penis scares you you aren't an artist, at least not yet. Take a goddamn life drawing course, people.

1. He's not peeing.
2. We're all naked beneath our clothes.

I personally don't see how this deserves a DD, but I have no reason to bash at that. I'm more annoyed at people screaming "OMFG PENIS AHHH" over this.
Congratulation nonetheless!:iconballoonplz:

Seems kind of haphazard and not as well thought out as your other pieces. Still you didn't pick this out of your gallery for the DD and the person that featured it saw merit in it. There's no reason for people to attack you over it.
The sad thing is that most people are not looking at this objectively and are just spazzing out over his genitals, which is not fair to the piece as a whole.

Nope. Contrary to popular belief most males don't actually have penises. It's just an illusion we've been taught to form.


Yes it's a penis. Lol

It's fine! Just try to remember the internet is FULL of pictures that may upset you. Trust me I've learnt the hard way :( Don't waste our time insulting the picture, just try to forget about it and move on, and not think about it too much. That's what I do and it works :)

Try not to worry about it :) Just understand that some of us are more sensitive to certain topics or themes, and all we can really do is avoid and accept that we don't like it :)

Porn USUALLY has less pee in it... And some people consume more porn than others :shrug: And some people don't like pee
I know I for one am totally disgusted... I like adult material, but I don't like this. But my reaction was not so extreme! :la:

I don't get your Reply, but I also didn't spend very long on the image before going to the comments.
Thought about it and thought maybe pee means something different where you live? By pee, I meant urine. Maybe that's why. To people who only look once or twice, that feather or whatever looks more like urine than anything else.

And it's hard to live a sheltered life when you're in your 30s.

Probably. But at least they still have a right to complain if they just got emotionally scarred. That person probably needs a hug, not us telling them to grow up. Or maybe they need both... heh

Thanks for clearing that up. I still hate the piece personally, but I'll actually sleep a little better tonight thanks to your reply. Seriously. I mean that. Less pee is good to me.
