I am astonished to have received a daily deviation after seeing so much incredible photography on this website from people a whole lot more experienced that I! So thankyou very much to all the kind comments.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-01-10
Drowning by ~AethyrGaia The incredible sense of claustrophobia in this image is fascinating to me. ( Featured by Nyx-Valentine )

Very interesting. It's uncomfortable just to look at but he's so handsome! Poor guy, scrunched up in a ventilation shaft...
This looks like grainy cell phone footage from a horror movie, good job! I like it!

While I really like the idea that this is unedited, I think just a little bit of editing could have worked wonders. Maybe softening it a bit and adding more contrast would make the model pop. c: What a way to be welcomed to deviantART, though, a DD right off the bat! Congrats! 8D

No offence, but... Next time while you will be in bathroom, take your shirt off and look at yourself. If you`ll see ribs (most likely) - well remind yourself your own words - its terribly gross. If you wont see your ribs, its highest time to take better care about yourself and maybe start a diet.

Besides that picture has mature content filter on. What means you must be either above 17 or mature (none of those 2 conditions you fill). So no idea what are you doing here?

TheBananaLamper Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012  Student General Artist
I can see my ribs, yeah. And I think they're gross still. Personally, I think I'm gross-looking as a whole, so that's okay, I guess.

You can change your mature content age from your real signed-in age. It's an option you have in your settings, I believe. I'm very mature for my age. I was stating an opinion, I didn't mean it any bit offensively. Thanks for the low blow, too, calling me immature. That was pretty uncalled for. The comment you replied with was very well stated and I understood what you were saying.

Settings>browsing - uncheck 'show deviations with mature content' ;) Age at registration doesnt matter.

If you were mature, you wouldnt made such remark (though about too skinny models you were right, but it was in no way related with commented work). And still at your age you shouldnt have access to porn pictures and other that flood deviantart. But i guess thats your parents problem, that allow you to browse all that gross things without control.

Well he's my boyfriend and I think he is beautiful! Perhaps it's just the photo, as he's actually a climber and is very strong and very fit. But you are entitled to your own opinion :)

Ahh, sorry if I insulted him! I think it may be the pose, all curled up makes the ribs stick out a bit :) Thank you for understanding. Now to ignore the other replies I get from that comment.

Keep your demeaning comments to yourself. Why not post a picture of yourself naked and show us your glorious body!? Don't ever think you can make a deranged comment like this and think you can get away with it.

That comment was very rude. I was stating an opinion: I said he was too skinny. That was an opinion. The second statement was not directed towards him. It was just a sentence I put out there regarding photography as a whole, which you can tell by the fact I said A model's ribs, not THIS or HIS ribs.

hate to tell you this, but ribs show on humans who are in peak physical condition as well, with a lot of muscle mass. Especially on men. The only time ribs don't show is if there's too much excess fat.

only fat lards would say that.
it's normal for ribs to be visible in humans especially when their chest is extended.
an you're wrong, some of the dimples com from his muscles not from his ribs, and that's healthy.

I know, I've settled this with the artist and agreed it was the pose he was in.

And I'm not fat. I'm underweight.

What a rude thing to say about a fellow human being who had the courage to put himself out there for art. How would you feel if someone said something equally cruel about you?

I was simply commenting my opinion in the first statement, and the second statement was not directed towards him. It was directed to photography models as a whole. :)

And it was -still- rude, hurtful, and cruel. It's just your opinion, yes, but your opinion is -mean-. There is no reason to post it, and as a photography model whose ribs show, I'm personally offended, as well as offended on his behalf. I repeat to you - how would you feel if someone said something like that to you? "Oh, all redheads are gross and disgusting." Not much fun to hear.

DeviantArt marked this as mature content. I've seen pictures with full on shots of genitalia on this site with no content filter. Stupid filters TT.TT

You might want to up the contrast, it get's a little flat, but the pose is good.

This image is very effective. It makes me nauseous to look at - I can't tell which direction is up and feel concerned for the safety of the model. Drowning indeed!

Feel free to bring up any concerns with something I have featured with me personally, rather than spamming the artists page with icons.

As a note, there is no "technical proficiency" requirement to receive a DD. It could be shot with a point and shoot, an iPhone, or a Mark D 20, and I still would have featured it.
