A Naked New YearFor the record I welcomed 2013 in a proper dress but I did want to address my new fascination with nudity. For years I have been doing shots that have craftily avoided the visual of the "nether regions". Lately I have abandoned that rule and for good reason. It is my opinion that the female body is the most beautiful and incredible thing ever created. I dont see any shame in it and I believe in smashing down the old stereotypes that sex and sexuality is a dirty thing. I have been researching alot on what it is that defines the border between porn and art and I think it is about time that we ladies reclaimed our naughty bits from the dirtbags and the pornogrpahers who have taken sole, visual possession of them. I believe that nudity, full female nudity can be portrayed with elegance and artistry. I also believe that sexuality can be portrayed with absolute and utmost dignity and elegance. I realize that many people think that photos and visuals depicting things such as masturbation and
The Aud Truth of It AllLately I have been blessed with alot of new watchers here on DA and so I have thought it was time to sort of reintroduce myself to all of you so you know a bit more about me and my art. I think to know an artist's back story and interest helps to understand their art and purpose.The Aud Truth of It All3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here is some Aud randomness.
I honestly believe in the idea of female empowerment through art. I believe that through art and through the right portryal of erotica women can finally get out from under the yoke of the social double standard on female sexuality that has existed for nearly 2000 years. I believe in taking ownership and control over my sexuality through art and conventions that I see as positive and beautiful. These photos are a true representation of the very real me.
My origin is an unlikely combination of backgrounds. I am mostly French ( My dad was 100% French) but from my mothers side I have Italian,Japanese, and even some Russian lineage. I am a true cocktail of internationalism. I r

I typed "Lips" to get some references, for female characters, you can guess what type of images were mixed in the deviations.
Most of them extreme close ups of the female organs, but some of them are sooo angry, wish makes me laughing by remembering the movie Waiting, when Reynolds says its "ohhhh god, its sooo angryyyy".

Some of them freak me out and i was afraid to click on next page, i mean comeeee onnnnn, give them make up, or a haircut style or something.
They are photos that look like scanned, so bad quality. Like they dont care about art, just wanted to show their nakedness to the world.
Like i said i dont mind nudity, just give us some advanced fi
Style and Character "copying"srs bsn >:Style and Character "copying"4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It sadden me I have to make a journal about this.
I've been seeing people trying out stuff I do, and I'm cool with it. I feel honored people actually like my work enough to try these techniques themselves. I'm ok with the "copy to learn" thing. But it really bugs me when someone takes what you do, mimics it and claims it to be original...
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to sound pretentious or pompous. But it took me 10 years to get where i am and it hurts me deeply to see "copycats" telling they "tried something new they felt in the morning" when they clearly took a pic as reference and don't bother telling it was the case.
The way I draw is myself, my personality, my dreams, my thoughts, ME. Trying to copy someone's style is like stealing their personality, the way they live, think and see the world. Everybody has their own eyes to see, so why stealing other people's eyes when you can use you own?
If it can help you find your own style, then ok, try. But p
