as long as it's tasteful and expressive it's ok.

It's fine with me as long as it's tasteful. The human figure can be very beautiful if you get the right light and pose, but too often I see smut poses or oversized and out of proportion breasts or some such. All too often the nudity is marred by the artist's juvenile mentality, but you do find those rare gems every so often that express the natural glory that humans can exist as.

sometimes a picture needs it to exagerate the atmosphere of the design, artist's choice-viewers filters

It depends on the context and what is shown. I like the classical style nudes but I'm not a fan of over inflated boobs or focus on genitals! In the end though as others have said, it needs to fit the theme and feel comfortable within the theme.

oh yes! I personally am not so fond of seeing genitals in art either. I'd hide them since it still has to be tasteful.

I think it depends on the picture but in many cases you might be right.

I'm personally not fond of nudes in art. I like to keep my own artwork family friendly. If you want to, that's your choice. No one's here to tell you what to do. We do have the mature content filters.

I don't think they're as bad, but in my own work, I wouldn't do it. An open back doesn't bother me. I personally don't enjoy seeing anyone's tush, :XD: That kind of thing doesn't actually appeal to me. Shirtless guys are fine. I'm actually wanting to do a merman sometime soon.

That's why I say do what you want, because it's *your* artwork, not mine. I'm not going to tell you all this crap about stuff. Sure, I have my own beliefs, but I don't shove them down someone's throat. You're free to express yourself as you choose. I just allow my beliefs to be reflected in my artwork, and make sure I don't harm someone with them.

yeah, I was just asking anyway and I found it was an interesting question for a poll :lol:
Besides it's easier to work with naked people when you want to manipulate parts of their body, that's the main reason why I'm working with nudes. :P

Hahaha. In a sense I guess it is. No clothing to cover up, and you can paint clothes anywhere you like, lol. Meanwhile I have to mimick the skin that isn't present, lol.
