So I have a particular hate/hate relationship with this "mature filter" option.
I draw cartoons; pencil on paper, circles on circles on circles ...
In my opinion, there is NOTHING mature about a CARTOON boob - I must stress cartoon, because my shit is so obviously toonish/parodyish, I mean, it's not fine art to jerk off too.
Maybe... maybe, maybe if I was drawing.... say, "actions", I might consider it.. But that to is a very slight might.
Now, if the dA staff or whoever put it on for me (as they've done before) then fine... what will be done, will be done... but I am not going to tag a cartoon as mature.
That'd be like rating Aladdin because Princess Jasmine has cleavage. (I don't know if she does, I'm just trying to make a point here.)
My other gripe is that random people are messaging me about mature filter tags.
Random pencil people (not even staff) are demanding it.. typing at me in CAPS and shit.
Come on, folks.. my boobs don't even look all that real - and if she has 6 of them, it cannot possibly be real. (Again, I don't know if this is true somewhere in the world, or under a freak show tent.. I'm just trying to make a point.)
It's actually really annoying to have fellow draw-ers harassing me for mature filter tags considering the amount of actual smut located on the front page..
Non-artsy "photography" and whatnot... (I'm not judging... do what you do... I'm just trying to make my point. )
And the fact that all I'm doing is drawing and posting my deviant art on a site called deviantart... I really don't understand the problem.
So, to all the weirdos and good Christians and whoever it is that keeps TELLING me to tag my work.
You can stop... 'cause I'm not going to do it.
