Hah, thanks :) Just with the hate mail I realised that everybody has different levels of what they find creepy. The net is a big place. For me channeling medieval art is no big deal, but I guess if your level of previous exposure to art history was minimal then you might find it confronting. That said, the complaint initially was about an image I posted showing K4 with his mesh expanded to make clothes. I removed his head to show the neckmesh and offended someone. The complaint then expanded to my other recent renders.
Just means I need to put a “Mature Adult Only” tag on my threads.
Dude, seriously, get over it. Dismissing those who you don’t agree with as immature, and denigrating them, and calling them “haters” is a bit of the pot calling the kettle black, don’t you think?
Stop playing the poor, misunderstood artist and recognize that there’s a whole world of people out there, intelligent, reasonable people, who might generally agree that some things are generally offensive. It takes a lot to offend me, A LOT, but I guarantee if you show a group of average people at the mall an image of dancing kids with no heads they’ll say “EEEWWWWW !!!”
Not because they don’t have the deep and brilliant background in art history that you seem to think you have, and not because they’re immature, but because CHILDREN DANCING AROUND WITHOUT HEADS FREAKS PEOPLE OUT !!!
It makes no difference whatsoever what your intent or purpose of the image, IT FREAKS PEOPLE OUT. Now your friends here might decide to agree with you, and that’s typical and expected, but try to accept the fact that maybe not everyone is willing to bend their rules of what makes them sick to their stomach just for you, okay?
And how about this:
Why not apologize for not thinking before posting, and for not warning people, and for not showing a tiny bit of compassion for others? Why not try that? Because I know it means nothing to you, but seeing an image of kids dancing without heads, and some of your other images, made me feel really, really bad. And probably made others feel bad too.
Just show a little forethought and compassion next time, okay? Because that’s what a really “Mature Adult” would do, don’t you think?
