Yeah. I try to make beautiful 3D women.

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 29, 2012, 2:35 AM
Regarding all the stuff that has come up in the last year about women in games, and tropes in videogames etc etc unequality and all that. I wrote this over at polycount but sharing it here.

I'm not sorry at all that I am in the pursuit of beauty in my work.

I'm not going to stop for anyone. I do what I do, because I enjoy it.

For years all I built was big space marines and ww2 soldiers, no one ever once told me back then I should 'diversify' and 'do something else' no one ever hassled me either it's just pretty much accepted. Pretty girls though?

Fucking taboo.

Well you know what, I call BULLSHIT.

If you look at my work and all you see is a sex-doll, that's your business not mine.
I never intended any of my girls to be this way. None. If you ask me about any of them, instead of taking them at face value like so many people do, you would discover that they all have intricate back stories, and all mean a great deal to me personally due to what was going on at the time in life etc.

I've spent years honing specific lines and shapes just of female torsos and faces, in an attempt to try and refine my skill. I still feel nowhere remotely close to getting where I want to be, and I will continue to pursue it until this facet of the craft is no longer appealing to me. I certainly will not be stopping because people have misinterpreted my intentions, nor do I care if people cannot forgive me for falling into the stereotypical trap due to not being a good enough artist to hit my intended goals yet. You can rally against me and boo me off stage all you like.

I only share a fraction of my work online, and yet I have had people express their concerns at polycount and here at deviantart via PM about it, I've had people tell me I objectify women, I've had people tell me I'm a pervert who likes to jack off to my own art, I've had people call me disgusting, revolting, I've had people say that I should be banned from entering comps if I make females, the list really goes on and on. Working on RIFT I even had people tell me I should be shot.

The bottom line is, you won't catch me groping women in the workplace, you won't catch me making sexist remarks or lewd comments, nor will you find me discriminating against any person regardless of their sexual orientation, beliefs, gender or race when I've been in a position to hire, because tbh when it comes down to it, I JUST DON'T CARE if your gay, lesbian, transgender, male, female or what color your skin is, or what you believe in, whether you are in a minority or a majority. Your art, and your passion for your craft , is the thing that tells me all I need to know about you.

If making pretty girls in my spare time, to you, lumps me into the same category as these kinds of discriminatory men, then so be it. Im very proud to be doing what im doing, and again. NOONE will stop me.

thats the thing, it stopped benig personal a long time ago - now its like a chore, like i just take it on the chin and move on because i cant be bothered spending any energy or time talking about it with anyone. Its a good thing to have this written down somewhere - i had to write it once. Now its out there, im done with it :)

Yessss! I've always wondered whether professionals get this kind of judgement and how they react to it. It's refreshing that you're firmly standing by what you love to do as opposed to breaking under the pressure and losing your way for the expectations of those who just.. don't understand. This topic in gaming always pops up at my uni. In my first semester I was heavily criticized for a character concept that people found obscene, whilst I myself had no idea that there was something wrong with it... that stunned me. It comes down to personal taste and what people find acceptable.

I LOVE creating beautiful women (your tutorials are excellent btw!) because it's just what I like to do and I like drawing things that are appealing to me. It's a way to appreciate form and what you consider beauty, this is my sole opinion on the matter. I understand the way that people feel and of course you'll get criticism but you'll also get people who appreciate the time and effort you've placed into your craft.

Who cares if some people disagree with what you create, make a fucking gorgeous woman and be proud. That's what I've come to believe anyway and this blessed post has reassured me on that. Anywhoo Kudos to you for sharing your artwork! Always appreciated.

You know what, I'm a straight girl and I love drawing cute girls. People think it's strange, and you know what? I don't care either. It makes me happy, and I won't stop. I think your work is amazing no matter what, never let anyone stop you from doing what you love. Just 'cos some stupid people doesn't understand doesn't mean you're not amazing, man. Keep on rockin'~~

Well Said. :highfive: Art is like a Football ( I hate using sports as a reference) you throw the ball givening it the information to fly through the air and the receiver interperts the information in order to catch the ball, but once the ball leaves your hand, it changes in the air. whoever catches it will interperts how every he/she wants too. I have the heard the same thing, where it is with photography or sketches. I just wish I had thought the same and follow the path i wanted and not allow people change my direction.

I think you're doing a wonderful job.. so what if people think that you "objectify" women.. a treu artist works hard to make his work perfect.. Noone complained about the sistine chapel, or the mona lisa.. I may not be very good at the polymesh and making models, but i wish i had half the talent you do

Wow, I can't believe people can be so rude. I was mindblown by all the things you mentioned people wrote to you or accused you of. Thats really narrow minded of them to assume so much about you without knowing you. I'm glad you are strong enough to work past that, if someone told me half that stuff I would probably wuss out and quit, or take my work somewhere else if not keep it to myself. I'm glad that you havent, and that you're stronger than that.

Oh i have thought about it tbh: like 'i already dont show most of my work, it wouldnt *really* matter to stop showing everything i do' But then I've thought of the people who have written me over the years saying that my work was the one piece of inspiration that they needed to inspire them to do better. And I would never forgive myself to know that by stopping, i could not have provided that spark in someones darkest creative moment when they needed it most.

Thats why I wont stop. :)

Chainmail bikinis, skintight bodysuits, and battle thongs are somehow the standard for female fantasy characters. It's stupid to blame any one person for it, though, as if they are personally responsible for objectifying all women in fantasy forever, and even worse that people would wish death or harm on you over it.

But if you model lots of generically attractive women in these outfits without ever questioning it, then even if you disagree with the idea of objectifying women, you're still helping to keep the stupid outfits that help propagate objectification the standard.

I dont agree with you or disagree, what i do know for 100% fact is whether im ojectifying women or not is in the eye of the beholder, like i said, thats your business. I dont create work to be used in a 'war' for one side or the other.

Tspuun Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, whether or not you are objectifying is entirely decided by your intention, not whether or not people think you are. I don't think you are, but you are using a lot of the same costuming tropes that people who do objectify women use, and that's where people get the idea from. A lot of it is in the presentation, and a lot of people on both sides of the issue don't get that.

Most people don't make things specifically to take some kind of social justice stance. But art doesn't exist in a vacuum, you know?

I too don't see the problem in celebrating feminine charm and beauty through work of art. Plus, I totally agree with the fact that each drawing and character goes beyond the picture itself and that its backstory is a great part of what gives a picture/character substance. Sadly it's often difficult to get this idea to the viewer in a single picture.

I find it shocking, the amount of criticism you are receiving from the beautiful work you do D: People can be so ignorant sometimes, it's flabbergasting... @_@ I think your work is beautiful, and so does my girlfriend :D She says she loves it and is amazed at your work. She and I both agree that the women in fantasy art in general (like from heavy metal magazine or wutever) are usually depicted as sexy characters, but ALSO very confident and powerful! If all you're able to see is the sexy side, then that means you objectify women more than the people who create the characters.... Again, love your work, screw everyone who doesn't lol

seems a little dumb as far as I'm concerned all the hatred that is art is art regardless or subject matter regardless of stereotypes and beauty or personal taste, I dislike abstract art but it docent mean it not art .. and we are all born naked, nudity shouldn't be something to be ashamed of and heck most of your 3d models are fully clothed so I dont see how thats remotely relative to what you do. I say just do what you love no matter what people think of you. if its a passion its worth pursuing and perfecting to the best of your capability.

I think part of the reason is that people dont understands what goes into digital effects and will assume things without really looking at the truth of the matter. I mean until I acualy tried it I didn't have as much respect for digital 3d work as compared to traditional 3d work, but no art form is easy.

Honestly, I'm still relatively new to deviantart, and re-learning 3d modeling, and I can honestly say that I've never felt you were objectifying anything. Especially when I see your wip posts, and the overall feel of your art, it reminds me of how much work/dedication/love goes into doing what you do. I appreciate your art, as do many people here. Keep it up, good sir. Hopefully, someday I'll be right there with you.
