I work hours... by sam-ely-ember I work hours... by sam-ely-ember

Yeah, it's supposed to be "on" not "in", get over it, I am not going to change it now

*sighs* I'm sick tired of that. How is it possible that pictures of naked people make it to the front page when those pictures aren't even real artistic photographies?

It has to be offensive for those photographers that actually make a wonderful with nudity.

I decided to make this when I saw a pic of a girl showing her breasts in the main page yesterday, probably a couple of you saw it.

I am not saying that nudity isn't art, it IS, but there's a big difference between art and porn.

And about "good pieces of art", not that I'm the ultimate artist or that I deserve a DD every single time I submit something, but anything is better that seeing a girl showing her intimate parts each time I enter DA. And it isn't fair that we work hours, days, weeks, even months in a piece and it never gets the attention it should have beause someone decided it was 'artistic' to take photos of their parts.

Also, if you're going to bash me for this stamp, know what? STFU, there are KIDS on here and porn is NOT the thing they should see when they enter an ART website. Because these people don't even use the mature content warning >->

That's all I have to say, I guess. Fave and use, let's spread the message.

even though i haven´t seen any porn pics on the site so far (karma good, i think?), but it´s upsetting to read the decription that non-porn work get more attention, especially for people that just wants to try a new hobby..

The representation of passion in any way or the natural body is art. Most of the deviations that have nudes on it and get to the front page are those. But there's always horrid exceptions, as, for example, "cherry pie" a woman with fake breasts. Perverts are perverts.

Sometimes, to tell if some nude art is art, i imagine the model as an overweight woman. It's strange, but it works.

I agree
phenoxfire Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think it honest depends on the person's perspective of the pic in question. While it may be 'porn' to you, it could be beautiful art to someone else :T just saying XD

Agreed. I wanted to look up some games... it came up with pages of disturbing stuff I wish I never saw.

...I understand your pain...

One time I looked up colors on dA, and when I typed up 'pink'... *sigh* I kept getting pictures of girls in their underwear, of their breasts, and even as far as seeing their vaginas up close!

I mean, I have nothing against nudity or real art that has nudity in it, but sonovabitch! That is ridiculous! I really wish these nasty people would keep their nude pictures and fetishes off this site because there is a difference between art and porn!

I DEFINETLY have to agree with you. :)

I would love to use this on my page. The main piece on my page took me about a month or 2 to fully refine. and it annoys me how 'artistic nude' gets more appreciation than my dedicated REAL art.

Thank you sooo much for making this stamp!
I saw a Cheap, Low effort, badly colored anime girl with large breasts, i also saw a girl taking pics of herself naked, so people could follow her on tumblr, BOTH IN THE FRONT PAGE. :fork:

All I see is generic anime crap.

Thats why i only browse between the artist i watch.

I agree with you on there . . . unfortunately, I am pretty much a Newgrounds type of person; meaning the porn on DeviantArt is nothing compare to all the hentai on Newgrounds (even though that stuff have been put second to all the jokes on the sites that are either video game related or cock joke related).

So I guess, I am pretty much indifferent as usually. But if its true about DeviantArt is going soft on nudity pictures, well I guess its safe for me to post that Watchmen fan art I was working on and not get harassed by people who thinks it is wrong for Dr. Manhatten to be naked.

dA conspires to turn this site into a Porn site D:

Luckily, I have safesearch on xD

But aye, the stamp speaks the truth. It is ultimately disgusting and lame that those pieces of "art" get featured u_u

But I guess that's what the audience wants to see (sadly)

I know right my parents hate porn and nudity and as soon as I log in I have to rush to my account so It doesn't get noticed. I think DA should check and make sure people appropiatly use the mature content warning button.
KicsterAsh Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011  Professional Filmographer
You go Girl. I totally agree with you. I see stuff like that all the time, it's to the point that it's sickening.
The-Sanrio-fanboy Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
I agree it even when i mature some of them and a couple day's later i get a note back from DA saying that they didn't mature it since they can't see any sexual reference's.Not to mention all most ever week nudity is all most on ever DD that's count's for furry/anthro art(no offense to furry/anthro lover's).But it's getting old
Brainstormer623 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The sad part is the stamp is absolutely right.
Misty-Mkay Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2011  Student General Artist
I totally agree, people spend s good amount of time on a piece of art. Then someone goes and uploads porn for pageviews. I've seen it happen. :(
Cokuruscana Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011
Total truth.

I'm not saying that nudity can't be beautiful and artistic, because some photographers can pull it off well! But I can guarantee that nearly every time I log in, there will be some simple picture of some person's butt or boobs, or something. It's getting to be annoying. :I

Yup....=/. I rarely look at the homepage anymore because of it.

Birdgirl90 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011
I agree with this so much. The stuff I get on here to see is the kind of art that you do - the fan art, the art that people put effort into, the poetic stuff. It doesn't seem right.

BTW, I love your stuff. :)
sam-ely-ember Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah, it's unfair for those good artist that always get the second place against that.

Thank you <3

Replace "porn" with "yaoi" and i'll use it.

Oh man, there needs to be a stamp for that too. :lmao:

+1! I've been considering leaving DA for just this reason. I hate looking through the favs and seeing Pron! And the mature tag isn't good enough!
MiraKHall Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
How about another stamp that says 'demotivational posters'? I'm pissed at those more so than the porn stuff (though I do agree with your statement).
TiffanySketches Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
If it bugs you so much just turn on the censor option. :shrug: Otherwise, your pieces probably aren't making it to the front page because they don't match the caliber of the other pieces.
Blank-Muse Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It is disheartening to work ages on a piece of art an it only gets one or two favorites or comments, but nude photographs, bases, and so forth send 90% of their time getting massive views/favs/comments..

Ah well..
lawlieet Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011
you are totally right D':<
it is really depressing /:
Ced75 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Pics like these are reason enough for me to leave the mature filter on.
Tokoyonokuni Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011
Yeah you're right, I'm a kid myself and I entered this site to see arts not porn.
Kuzlalala Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Student Digital Artist
That's what Mature Content Filter's for, right?

And it's also not fair that our artistic non-porn works gets less views than non-artistic porn works.
lawlieet Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011

I did. Don't worry about it.

The porn can be quite annoying, but hey, it's the internet. And everybody knows what the internet is for...
Illuminated-City Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah...unfortunately, that's kind of true. Scratch that, it IS true.
I mean, I've never gotten a DD. I would run around in circles if I did.
But even if it doesn't look like it, I spend a LONG time on my art, ESPECIALLY my recent Kingdom Hearts "series" of drawings that I plan on doing, starting with the Axel I posted a couple of days ago.
Tienes razon! XD
sangheili13 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011
Estoy de acuerdo contigo! Hace poco invité a un amigo a ver DA y se encontró con esa imagen! No me saca de pervertida¬¬.
Deberían hacerle más publicidad a tus fabulosos trabajos. Pero bueno los que que compran AdCast tienen la publicidad:(

Mind-Adrift Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011
THANK-YOU for posting this! I am so sick of seeing non-stop pictures of JUST female genitals, or a web-cam picture some girl took of herself naked just so the perverts on DA can tell her the disgusting things they want to do to her...

Only thing is... It should be "I work hours ON", not "in".
Jiosen Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree 100%. Nude for a thought-provoking message. That's fine. Nude because... just because? No. That's not art. That's just taking HD pictures of naked people. B( You make a good point that some of it doesn't have a mature filter so younger deviants are being exposed to this. >8C

Oh, just to let you know, it's ON a good piece of art, not IN. 8) Tengo una amiga que hace eso mucho. XD
Ratta-Tatta Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
this is true even though i am farly new to DA i just used to look around and see all these nude pics and was lk wth?? so thanks for making this X3
