This piece is sensual without being nasty. This is definately not porn but ART to my eyes. It doesn't matter what's on her mouth. Controversial? Yes. And that's the main reason why I love it. I totally bow down to Aprella's legacy and the author's work. I like the color's intensity, so warm but at the same time so distant.
ahh, this is what I want to see, people fighting over the controversy of an image, something your brain decided to create for the purpose of stunning the viewer, I was not sure what the substance was, nor do I care.
it is highly flawless technically and nowhere near pornographic.
I appretiate your silence on the matter of this picture. as any great work it has left your hands and is being debated. you struck a cord. I honostly was attracted to the colors in the shot looking at the thumbnail. If i can squint and still love a pic i think it is great. wonderful work
The first thing that came to mind was 'What the hell is Bukakke doing on Dev Art.' And then I minorly blitzed through the postings, and viewed my own opinion.
Though it does appear more watery than wax, I believe the white stuff to be the woman. She's melting. Why? Who knows. The world lights many fires, which burn us each to their own degrees, with embarrassment, Scorn, Hate, Anger and Jealousy, to count a few. She has her opinion about the world, and each and every one of them only makes her hotter in another way, which slowly, gently melts her into the perfection that is the imperfection of human emotions.
I have no clue what I just said, but I was attempting to form a coherent thought, so I typed what I thought about the picture. I am done now.
It is different, but I was thinking it was ice. I do not think that anybody that has an once of art can make a comment like that above. There is a definate line between art and porn. It is probably more evident to an artist than a lehman though. I would have never seen it being anything other than art. Good job!
It's interesting reading all the comments about how to interpret this picture. Sex didn't once go through my mind when looking at it, and to me it's something much deeper, darker if you like.
When I saw this shot, my first thought was Dawn of the Dead actually, she reminded me of some kind of zombie from the preview. Closer up, my next thought was, 'what is that dripping down her?'; thirdly, it's rather creepy, especially the look on her face; and fourthly, i like her hair.
You're right, real art is the stuff that either makes you think, or is very beautiful in some way. But then, that is open to interpretation too.
I've read all of the comments on this deviation, because I wanted to find out what was dripping from the girl in the shot.
And since everyone's mind works it's own way, everyone might see something different. I did, and do still beleive that the substance she is dripping with is supposed to be semen. But you don't hear me complaining. I've gathered that, not only because of the color and texture of the drips, but because of the 'convenient' placement of it on her mouth and chest.
Everyone will have their own opinion on this photo, and some may call it "porn" just because it looks like it does.
But the beauty is, is someone sees it that way, it is porn. But only to them. To me, this photo is more than just a topless girl covered in an oozing, cloudy white substance, but the lighting, pose, colors, textures- not to mention the brilliance of it!
It's just... amazing.
