11 (who?)
It has been said that the human mind can imagine things a lot more detailed when it has to fill in the blanks.

Being shown something in plain view, our brains just process it as "something".

But when we are looking at something that is either censored, out of view, or concealed, our brains are boggled with the possibilities of what is being hidden - the imagination takes over and it can be "anything"!

That is why naughty images which are censored seem naughtier.

The off-screen monster which we can't see seems scarier.

The Christmas present which is wrapped seems more special.

With that being said...

Does that means if an image is offensive to someone, even though nothing is being shown, they are thinking more dirtier thoughts than others?

I have to admit that an image of lightly concealed female nude - using clothing or body positioning - can seem a little more erotic to me than a flat out photo of a naked woman.

For example:

So... does that mean this image of a redhead wearing a semi-transparent gown is more erotic to people who are already thinking very dirty thoughts?

Are they already associating her with another redhead that they have a obsession with that she happens to bear a passing resemblance to?

Could be...

... but that means the issues that are having is not with the image, but in their own mind.

BTW, I got another image deleted from the gallery today, so this is a kind of save point for this occurrence... let's see what happens now...

Let the deletion fun continue...

Title: TyLee and Suki work out their differences

Head's up other artists, the new character under "special care" seems to be TyLee this round.

Not reposting this one on the blogspot because it was a commission.
If my clients want to repost their commission in their own gallery, they are free to do so.

No stress for me ^_^

loving this piece - did you have fun trying a new approach? don't think I've seen you paint anything specifically gossamer/atmospheric before

It was the main reason I did it - I have never tried it before.

I think its worked out really well - another nice trick for the toolbox (to mix metaphors wildly ;))

Heres a fun idea to add to it, as magician I prey on the fact you mind does work that way.

The attractive young woman entering the box defiantly get more attention that a youthful attractive man. The more violent the saw and blades look the more you watch. I defiantly see what you are saying , and sympathize with your situation.

Good luck, keep up the great art and thank you for sharing. I know i enjoy it.

the whole counter-sexuality obsession some people have really creeps me out...

Yeah, that's why people invented the term suggestive themes. Although what exactly it suggests is not clear.

You know what this explains Donal Rumsfeld scare tactics so much better. "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. " Long and shot I give you the idea that you need to be scared. But not tell you why. I'll let your mind fill in the blanks that there is a threat.
