For a long time now I've been battling with a self imposed barrier. For a while now I've been a strong believer in the beauty of the female body, particularly when clothing is a little limited
. There's something about the curves of the body and of course breasts in general that I ind truly captivating, not only from a sexual point of view but also from an artistic one. It's something about the different sizes and shapes, the way small breasts compliment and suit a more petite body and larger ones work well with a more rounded and possibly curvier figure.
As some of you who followed my old account know, I spent a period of time drawing, well, topless OCs. However back then I felt it was less about the art and appreciation for beauty (which I'll admit has only really come about in the last few years as a result of my own personal growth and maturity) and more about the "Yay, bewbies =3
". As a result of this, I had been reluctant to return to this direction, fearing that my intentions were not for the appreciation and artistic but rather the pervy and potentially even degrading. I bring this up because my piece, Morning Snow -
has been sitting in my gallery for nearly a week now. Thanks to the amazing feedback I have recieved so far I've been able to work on the second WIP and I do feel there is a vast improvement over the first, and I look forward to showing you. However at the moment I am sitting there thinking "Alright, but what next?". I certainly have a picture or two of Snow in mind, including one suggested by *CMBaggs
a few months back but while I am over my "I can't draw this as it may be pervy
" barrier, I am still wondering what would be best moving forward. I have asked a few people how they feel the nudity presented in Morning Snow looks and one said it was "tame and natural
" which was wonderful to hear. While artistic may be an end goal, I do feel my ideas and skills are quite far from that direction at the moment, but "tame and natural
" makes it feel like my current piece is also quite far from the worry I've had due to my old direction.
I do watch an account called ~amazon-warriors
who mainly do photos of strong but scantily clad warrior women. I certainly don't look at their work and find it pervy or arousing or anything like that, so many something inspired could be the way forward? I have also toyed with a piece of my OC Mewrah, who's element is wind, standing atop a mountain topless so she can feel the breeze against her skin. Should I look at making that idea a reality? As always I am curious to hear any thoughts, ideas and suggestions you may have for me.
