Well some people find it nice, and good looking! It's your opinion. Call them attention-whores, or sluts (a word that I hate), but you can't take the DD away from them. It's there, and will always be there.

"Mundane," you say? Well, I suppose it's a good thing that you aren't stooping low to the common person's level, but really, I'd say that you should at least try to be less sour. As in, try to restrain yourself, and control your negative emotions. I wouldn't want anyone yelling at anybody else... Work on your self-control, please, so that way you won't accidentally start an argument with anyone else. There are lots of people who'll probably get angry at you for expressing such negative opinions, after all.
o.o ...My... That was rather harsh of you to say that to me for no apparent reason. I don't know what I could've done to make you think that, other than advise you to calm yourself.
At any rate, I suppose that what you said in your first paragraph is legitimate. Well, actually, there's no uncertainty about it. What you said in your first paragraph is completely true. Most people expect criticism when they place their art out into the world.
They expect harsh feedback of people telling them their mistakes so they can figure out how they might be able to improve, yes, but sometimes they just put things out there to hear what people say about it. I'm not saying that this is the case for this deviation, but I am saying that it's something that can and does happen. In fact, that's actually what this website here was intended to be: Something for people to post to see how the world responds to their skills and/or talents.
Now, don't get me wrong. Professional criticism is accepted, and sometimes appreciated, but not everybody is a professional. I'm sure you realize this. They might post a piece of art online that's really poorly made, but they themselves might think that it's quite well put together, hence why they posted it online. Sometimes (I can't understand why) the case is that they know that their artwork is bad, yet they post it online anyways.
What can we learn from this? DeviantART.com is a place where people post things for the fun of it to see what other people think about their creations, whether they're beautiful masterpieces, or simple scraps and sketches. Overall, deviantART is intended to be lighthearted, and friendly. Why go against the creators of this website's intentions and insult people for little to no reason other than being in a cranky mood? Control yourself, my friend. Learn from the mistakes which you make so that you can become better. Good luck, friend.
Pardon me, sir, but I felt the need to voice my complete astonishment at your wonderfully mature reply to :devTowparkradio: Despite his/her's complete and utter disrespect, you replied in a calm, cool, and kind matter, and took no notice of his/her rude words.
And wow you seem like such a ridiculously nice person all around. I'm really still just amazed at how nice you are.
Well thank you, sir/ma'am. I really don't know your gender, so I'm afraid that I'm unaware as to what I can call you. But, yes, I do appreciate what you said about me. I try the best I can to be the best I can, if that makes sense.
But don't leave yourself out of the spotlight, now. You're also a very good person for being able to point out what you have. Thank you, friend, for all that you've said to me. It means a lot!
That would mean I had to throw my integrity overboard and chose favorites. It would be wrong to point out a picture and say that it deserves a DD based on my tastes/sexual orientation. Pictures like this don't speak to me because it's just way to easy to make them and get them on the frontpage. This is for one reason only: sex sells, and because of this I don't think this, or any other press of a button instant 'art' deserves to be on this site, not unless there has been some modifications beyond removing imperfections from the model.
It basically boils down to me not being satisfied with the options offered to filter out certain parts of the gallery on the frontpage. Any other simple image site has a feature to filter what you see and save your settings. If I had the option I would immediately block everything related to photographs and I could stop making these "hate" posts.
(insert dumb smiley) Do something with the feedback, I can't be the only one that thinks this way, maybe I'm a bit more pissed off then others but it doesn't take away the fact that a better filter would do the site good.
However, people rarely actually take the initiative to come and contact me directly, they usually just voice their dissatisfaction with the choice on the poor artists work, which is obviously a bit damn rude as they didn't ask for the image to be featured.
I am many things, but I am not psychic - if you don't tell me what you want featured then I have no option but to chose them myself.
I get that Pinup & Glamour Photography isn't for everyone, or that sometimes the images can be on the raunchier side of life. But I really respect people who are willing to be part of solution, rather than complain about the problem - if you don't give examples of what you do want to see, then I don't understand what you expect to change?
No, not wow as in "You are right," I meant wow as in "*headdesk*"
It's called "seduction." Not "your cheap porn pic." It's meant to give a feeling of lust, or sexual want. Art is supposed to convey a message, and the fact that you think it's just fap material is sad. Or the fact that you expect fap material on DeviantArt is even sadder. Or rather, the fact that your willing to call this piece "mediocre fap material" is all the more sad.
You want to see a girl spread her legs open to a camera, go to a porn site. You'll find plenty of those. Millions of pics.
You may not like the pic, but respect the model, the photographer, etc.
But 'your cheap porn pic' is basically the driving force behind this, if the lady had worn more clothing this wouldn't have had the attention it already had up to this point. People claim to like this sort of 'art' for the mood or whatever other excuse (in reality they only see tits), but they turn their head when a male model is used, or god forbid, a lesser attractive female.
