PurpelBlur, also known as "The Ringmaster", has became an extremely familiar and friendly face within our community. Throughout Travis's time as a volunteer within the Community Relations Team, he excelled in showing real community spirit, promoting contests as well as raising awareness of any community events that were taking place.
PurpelBlur is now a Senior member of our community and continues to show true ringleader style by his constant participation and desire to encourage others to follow that path. It's for all this and much more that we are delighted to bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2011 to PurpelBlur.
The Stigma of Male Nude ArtI am writing this to kind of get the word out to all the people that appreciate male nudity, whether it be homosexual in nature or not! I have seen a good many amazing drawing, painting, and photographic genius' pushed to the brink of quitting their amazing talent just because they are taking, painting, and drawing photos of nude men and not nude women. What is even more bothersome is that when these photos depict homosexual moments of romance or sexuality, it is marked as disgusting or a Terms of Service violation.The Stigma of Male Nude Art by iRetrala
This is odd to most of the nude art community, as it does not happen when a photo of a nude female or a nude heterosexual act is depicted near as often. I am 100% sure that this is an online community of Artist's of all kinds. Why should nude male artist's be belittled and called "fags" or "degenerates" just because they find the male form to be their muse, instead of that of the female form?
This is not only biased and wrong, but, homophobic and unneeded. If you come upon
|things that make my heart beat faster and my trigger finger itch <3|
Hello! I be Donna, feel free to use my real name, i'm not one of those paranoid types |
Primarily I'm an alternative portrait and wedding photographer, a mum of 2 amazing kids and married to my irish toyboy (win!)
But i'm also the Community Volunteer for the Artistic Nude gallery here on dA, i have a passion for amazing, eyecatching, thoughful, inspirational photography and i'm very proud to be able to show you some of the fantastic art that is created and posted here right in this little corner of cyberspace.
i am always ALWAYS happy to impart advice on photography, life and the universe. i am also very good at sniffing out the latest dArama and rolling around in its dirty mess and getting its stink all over me. oh yes, i can be relied upon to provide the lulz. in fact, i think some of my watchers watch me for that very reason. why? because its a website, and as much as i love my friends and my art, it amuses me to see how much people consider it to be the be-all-and-end-all of life, like the opinion of someone 3000 miles away means so much to them.
