The Rules!

:w00t: Hello and welcome to my new Group on deviantArt Traditional-Nudes- which as described: The focus will be on the nude human form in traditional paper and canvas media only:
pencil, graphite, colored pencil drawings and (non-computer) painting.

:lightbulb: This is NOT a group for photography, cg art, or sculpture.
Subjects must be a human- NO FURRIES. Also, keep drawings and/or paintings tasteful and must appear to be legal age, if you submit something that violates dA rules, it will be reported.

The purpose of my group isn't for my own art, it's to allow a place for critique for those who want to learn how to draw better, or to show off your mad skillz!

:bulletyellow: All works must be on paper or canvas, pencil, graphite, paints, colored pencil, markers, or pen.

:bulletyellow: Realism or semi-realism is preferred, anime is discouraged.

:bulletorange: Pictures can be of one or many people, at least ONE of them should be fully nude to stay consistent with the theme of the group,

:bulletpink: Pictures should display a reasonable amount of effort and time put into it- no scraps or scribbles and NO LINED PAPER!!!

:bulletpurple: Please no more than one submission per day, no spamming with loads of submissions or messages. We reserve the right to refuse a submission.


Despite the strict rules- anyone artist or watcher (please be 18+) and all skill levels are welcome. Membership is wide open at this time- but will switch to moderator approved on March 1st. So hurry up and join :eager:

:snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake:

:dalove: I cannot guarantee critique, but I can guarantee you won't get any for sure if you don't join and participate. Have fun!

Note: Affiliations accepted. :date: "Join mine and I'll join yours" also accepted, if I decide to join yours that is.

Hello everyone I am very glad so many people are joining the Group! I apologize for being in the background (no pun intended) so much and seeming absent. I haven't been- just extremely busy.
There is some nice artwork being submitted and I'm glad there is an interest in human form.
Just a reminder that this group is meant for- traditional materials, such as pencils, paint or sculpture; and must depict a human male or human female full body, without clothing.
To be more specific- for women, shoes or boots, hats, gloves, jewelry, glasses/goggles is okay as an accessory but not hose or bras or underwear, there is no need. The same mostly goes for males. Pictures don't need to be strict M rated for this group, but I expect that most probably will be.

:bulletred: Quick Note;
Just to make sure the group maintains an openness to the entire dA community, let's keep it free of fetishist or sexual acts . I know I didn't set that down when I formed the group, wanted to see where it would go. At this point I must ask that these kind of things not be submitted- bondage, tying up, torture, domination or any kind of penetration- those things are a different concept than nude figure drawing.
I had to remove some stuff from the main gallery that fell in this area. I promise this isn't intended to upset anyone, but I want to keep this club fairly middle of the road so that anyone of any age (18+ per dA rules) and any gender can feel comfortable.
Fetish or bondage, pinup drawings or artwork may be acceptable in another group?

:bulletgreen: I saw some drawings of girls with gothic style makeup on and that is definitely okay!
Some of the works being submitted are also somewhat sexual in pose, which is okay as long as it adheres to strict Deviantart Community rules and does not depict the stuff I outlined in the paragraph above.
There are also some classical poses which are great!
I haven't submitted artwork here since I've been sidetracked but please everyone else keep up the good work!

Hi all!

I'm in the process of making a book, in the slip stream of "Fifty Shades of Grey". I refer to my drawings as "bdsm pin ups"", meaning that they are slightly idealised, and not too obvious. I mainly work with watercolour and black ink.
Hope you enjoy it!

Hey I'm really sorry but I posted Figure Study No. 3 instead of Figure Study No.2; could someone delete it please? It's not really a nude figure drawing :S
VISIONOFTHEWORLD Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011
Please if anyone is submitting artwork it has to be of nudes only- no clothing! It also must be traditional artwork and not depict penetration- this is violation of dA rules. Thanks

Oops! Just saw the note about 'one submission per day". My apologies.
mykopath Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks for accepting my works. I have many more, but will try to submit only a few every now and again. Also, I'll add some male nudity for a bit of balance.
