First of all: I don’t want to offend anybody. I don’t mean specific people. These are just quick thoughts.
Sometimes I come to this topic – maybe two times in a year. Nude Stock.
Why do we need nude stock? Painters and drawers need naked bodies to study the human body – muscles, bones, sinews etc. Painting human bodies is hard and you really have to know how it works. I had a drawing course and I had to learn how to draw a human. It was hard but very interesting.
Many people know from deviantART what stocks are good for, too. Photomanipulations. A naked body can be the perfect thing to achieve the imagination you have in your mind. People don’t need pretty clothed people for their works all the time.
But there is one big problem I have with nude stock. I don’t think that all nude stockers have this in mind. I don’t understand why people think they should do nude stock just because of the visits. Yes, you get visits with nude stock. You get favs, comments and attention. There are not only artists and art lovers on deviantART. This site is a perfect place for everybody who`s interested in some nude photos. And there are tons of them.
This is nothing against nude stock – this is something against people who need to show pics of their nude body just for attention.
Don’t get me wrong. I like nude stocks. There are some great stockers with amazing poses and ideas. But if you ever browsed deep through the categories of nude model stocks you will find a lot of pics that have nothing to do with real stock – just blurry, dark pictures of people who have to show their boobs, butts and whatever to the world. (Of course not just in the nude stock category) Someone told me because they have low self-esteem – well, this could be one of the reasons.
Actually I don’t care much about what other people do. These are just thoughts because more and more people that I watch decided to do nude stocks. Sometimes I wonder why because their “normal” stocks are great and they don’t need nude stocks. But – of course – I know they just to them for people who could need them.
Will I ever make nude stocks? No.
Maybe you wonder why (while I’m just wondering why I should do it). Do I think I’m pretty? Well, I guess other people think that. But I’m just pleased – with my face and my body. No, I shouldn’t feel ashamed to make nude stock. But WHO needs to see my body? I’m happy and there are hundreds of people who provide nude stock and will provide nude stock in the future. No need for me.
I never will understand why people will ask me for nude stock. They can have my poses with clothes. So why should I do nude stock? Just for all those who interested in my naked body? No, if they like my stock they will like it with clothes. No needs for messages like You should start doing nude photos before you get too old.(Yes, I got this message!)
And I forgot to say: Stock is my hobby. I don’t need people who say that I have to buy special things for my stock. I don’t need people who try to tell me, WHAT I have to do. They don’t pay me. This is not my job. I never will be tired of saying this.
As I said, these are just thoughts. I think I will delete this blog entry later because I don’t need it in the future.
