RESPECT. THE. MODELS !!!Ok so it seems I'll have to do that too.
I'll keep it simple : read the title.
I've been doing a bit of nude photography these last months and even though the vast majority of the people who visited, faved and commented my photos were totally fine, there's always a small fraction of weirdos/perverts/wathever and that really pisses me off.
I'll say that once : nude/erotic photography is not porn and models are not objects (and that also applies for porn models by the way) !
so everyone have to BEHAVE PROPERLY and RESPECT THE MODELS
you can act as a dickhead with me, attack me, critique me, send me weird messages, BUT... one more time... Don't touch the models.
If you want to write some kind of pervert comment, keep in mind that nor the model, nor the photographer, nor even the people who truly appreciate the photo will like your comment.
You want porn ? Fine. There are plenty of website for that on the net, or even photo galleries here on dA that are more about porn than about nude. Use

MARCH - PISCESMore Like This
March marks the beginning of Spring and capture our attention with Pisces constellation.
So, let's see! :icontruesmiles:
People born under the sign of Pisces have an intuitive feel well developed, They love to work and are very diligent, they follows an exact plan, are dreamers and responsive. Their idealistic principles, aspire to harmony, beauty, peace and quiet. When they realize that life is not perfect, Pisces are seized by a state of anxiety and concern. They love the moments of quiet and solitude when can reflect on life.
Governed by Uranus, natives of Pisces (19 February - 20 March ) put in the forefront of spiritual values, the material is secondary. Also, if they have to choose between old and new, prefer what they know best - they will choose old. Pisces accept with difficulty, changes and innovations, so they try to avoid them.

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

Called it, totally called it! Aya was revealed to be the embodiment of life from the central Green Lantern Battery, forcing herself into existence just like a newborn child in a big big world(or Universe, to be more appropriate). Another thing that has caught my attention from this revelation is that she is also the "spark" of another DC Comics character, another embodiment of life from the Green Lantern energy, and that is the one and only Ion. It would make sense if you put it together, a portion of Ion's spark which was from the life of the Green Lantern energy gave a new life to what we know now as Aya, which in turn you could say can be way the "daughter" of Ion. Tremendous if you were ask me.
Now on to Razer, finally acknowledging his error of the entire series for mistaking Aya as a mere machine, also going berserk at Hal Jordan for almost killing her at the end of the episode which solidify his love and care for her and on how much
The Enduring Enigma of CollageFebruary 21, 2013/by techgnoticMore Like This
Collage is one of those art forms that immediately sets off heated debate about our most fundamental ideas and visceral feelings about the very essence of art itself.
Turn of the century troublemakers Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso began enhancing their paintings with glued on bits of cut out fabric and other materials, thus neatly blurring the line between the art categories of painting and sculpture. They shifted the emphasis or “meaning” of their painted images beyond an attempted interpretation of the painted “text” to thinking about the artists’ “process” – something wholly separate from the paintings themselves.
And with that a whole new Rubic’s Cube of basic questio

Through The Lens 19 ~ Hockney on PerspectiveThe Invention of PerspectiveMore Like This
Filippo Brunelleschi is attributed with inventing linear persepctive in the 1400's. The use of opticical technology, such as camera obscuras (which led to the invention of the camera) and mirrors, allowed artists during the Renaissance to create a more "realistic" image. The celebrated English artist David Hockney spent a large part of his career researching this time period, the invention of perspective, and it's implications on art and society as a whole. Hockney puts forth the notion that when these artists sought to create a more real representation of the world, that they actually flattened the image and immobilized the viewer. The below images of Chinese and Indian paintings offer examples of a "non-linear" perspective.
The wonderful thing about this style of painting is that the viewer is able to move throughout the painting. The viewer is able to see more of a narrative, more time, and more space. Modern viewers of this art, being i

thoughts in form of captions[Reflection 1]More Like This
Photography approaches the philosophical thought more than you can imagine.
Imagining you get to discover a reality that runs parallel to the 'our' reality.
The difficulty is to make it clear to others.
I think the conceptual is not appropriate to 'street photography'. It's like trying to tell a story to a child, having the hiccups.
The search for a language [personal?] often becomes as trying on clothes at a store, I think we should turnaround when we realize it
The difference between 'waiting' photography and 'hunting' (hide) photography: the first is showing you the reality of a moment, the second is showing you a conceptual manipulation of reality; the first gives to the reality the possibility of going elsewhere, the second freezes the reality, plasticizes it.

Every few steps, he paused, reaching out to brush trembling, liver-spotted fingers against certain jars. One with a clipping of soft golden hair. One with dried burgundy-colored rose petals. One with a small plastic baby rattle. Each touch seemed to add just a modicum of vigor to the shambling gait, a little stability to shaking limbs.

My brother wouldn’t ride on the teacups with me because they were ‘too girly’, so I rode on them alone. I loved the teacups best of all because they made me feel really small, like Thumbelina trapped in a human’s china cabinet. I was bigger than my brother, with a belly starting to hang over my jeans like cake batter slipping over the rim of a mixing bowl, but spinning in a large pink cup with the world swirling into pastels like smudged chalk all around me, I felt as free and light as a dandelion seed being blown into oblivion. The nausea made me smile and I chastened the squeals of delight that threatened to escape, swallowing them down with gulps of air.

Creating a balanced characterWhat is a well balanced character?More Like This
A well balanced charater is one you would believe is really existing. Creating a character like this may seem not easy at all and sometimes even impossible but it is all about relating information about your character, a bit knowledge of human nature and psychology with each other.
If you manage to master this combination, you will be able to create characters that can come to life on their own.
Sounds good but pretty complex, right? Let me show you.
First of all: A character should always be the result of many factors being combined as I mentioned above.
-> Never say the creation progress is done when you miss out e.g. on important events in their backstory or did not mention their family/parents!
You can start out with different aspects and then build up the remaining parts very often but to keep some structure let's start with your characters backstory.
What happens to you in your life forms your personality and character.

The Problem With Mary Sue I think with any characterization there’s a point where you empathize, no matter how much of a deviance his or her actions may be from your understanding of humanity.More Like This
Today, sports fans, I’d like to talk about a subject that is long overdue: the Mary Sue (or the male equivalent, Gary Stu). But before I can talk about her, I think I should define what I think she is. This is important because the webs are teeming with varying definitions, and my idea of what she is may not jive with other people’s; the definition I see most often calls to mind Mary Poppins – practically perfect in every way – but I’ve also seen the opposite, where she is described as being impossibly weird. She’s got a bizarre (and an impossibly long) name, eye color, hair color, or other distinguishing feature that somehow signals she’s “special.”

Usually, good things. A basketball, or a cat falling from a tree, or his baby sister, one memorable time, as she fell out of her crib.
It was instinct to him, second nature. He didn't need to think about it—his hands acted independently from the rest of him, completely on their own accord, risk and volition. His hands, to him, were unbearably selfish. They thought very little of consequence. Didn’t they care about the potential pain? Did it matter to them that what they caught might. . . hurt?
He was still rather young the first time he caught a knife that had fallen off the kitchen counter. He caught it, unfortunately, by the blade. It sliced cleanly into the chubby flesh of his little boy palms. His mother saw the blood spilling from his hands and screamed, uncurling his fingers from around the knife. She shrieked at him, her voice shrilly with fear. Why had he held onto it like that? Why did he catch it in the first place

The eyes bright and young in years.
But what this glance is saying
Is as old as the world.
The eyes almost closed,
Snuggled and silent dreaming,
She lies like spilled –
Inwards restless, exuberant.
Stretched out peaceful and easy –
Gentle soul, full of happiness.
I ask myself what she might intend
By her soft glance?
Often, she lies around sleeping
And after a while, she opens
The little mouth and bends the back.
But everything without haste.
Then, when she starts to rub gently
Around my legs, purring –
It is only up to her
When she moves my heart.
When I take her in my arms
And look into her amber eyes,
How my heart warms up
And help me to believe in the good.
Black coat with silken hair,
On velvety paws slightly –
We walk together year for year
Until our journey will have come to an end.
And when once you will leave me, my purring companion,
So, I cover you tenderly with love.
And I think of you fondly what enlightens my spirit:

SpaceX's Mile-High Escape TestBy Marcia DunnMore Like This

SpaceX mile-high escape test of crew capsule next week will feature 'Buster' the dummy.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -- SpaceX is just days away from shooting up a crew capsule to test a launch escape system designed to save astronauts' lives.
Buster, the dummy, is already strapped in for Wednesday's nearly mile-high ride from Cape Canaveral, Florida. He'll be alone as the mock-up capsule is fired from a ground test stand and soars out over the Atlantic, then parachutes down.
SpaceX is working to get astronauts launched from Cape Canaveral again, as is Boeing. NASA hired the two companies to ferry astronauts to the International Space Station to reduce its reliance on Russian rockets.
"It's our first big test on the crew Dragon," SpaceX's Hans Koenigsmann, vice president for mission assurance, told reporters Friday.
