Artist feature, aceoni

Fri May 21, 2010, 5:46 PM
I admit I'm biased when it comes to artwork/drawings/paintings of me.  I really don't think it's an ego thing for me, in fact it may be the opposite in that it helps me see in myself what I would otherwise never see and that feels good to do sometimes.  Still, I'm not going to suggest in any way that I can be objective about artwork I was that directly involved in.  I'm not, and I know it.

Despite that and still, there are sometimes works based on my reference, or live modeling, or whatever, that particularly make me pause and think "I like that!".  This is one of them and I don't think it or the artist is getting enough attention so I decided to try to do my part to potentially remedy that with this quick feature.  I hope nobody minds.

With all of that said, please see Anatomy Study 01 by aceoni by aceoni :iconaceoni:

My thanks to her for sharing her work with me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




If you wish, please use my image/stock to create artistic imagery. I very much enjoy being a part of the artistic creative process as a model and am highly motivated to do it with no direct reward other than the opportunity to see the result.

Please do not use my image to create pornographic/erotic/intentionally sexualized imagery. In my view of things, the world already has an overabundance of sexualized figurative imagery, and I have neither the interest nor desire to contribute any more to that. It has long since been more than sufficiently overdone, in my opinion, to the point of seeming to cloud the vision of far too many. A huge part of my motivation for modeling is to try my best, in my own small way, to balance that out a little with figurative imagery that is not intentionally sexualized, and by doing so, hopefully, offer an opportunity for those who will, to see and appreciate the body for what it is, which in my view is so very much more than a sex object.

For respectful and non-sexual drawing reference purposes, permission is granted to do anything you may wish with your resulting drawing, including commercial uses, etc. There is no need to ask me for additional permission, it is granted. All I would ask, and very much appreciate, is the opportunity to see a scan or photo of your work, and by whatever means you prefer and/or find most convenient.

In addition, and though it probably isn't even fair of me even mention this, I'd also prefer to not have my image obviously "emasculated"/"neutered", for lack of a better way to put it. Intending absolutely no offense to patients having had to undergo such an actual procedure, I have to wonder how many artists would render the undraped female figure with the equivalent of an artificial/contrived mastectomy. I am male, I was born with male parts, and though it took me a very long time to reach this realization, I really believe that's okay. In fact, I believe that every single part of all human bodies is inherently wonderful and beautiful and worthy of artistic rendition, including male bodies. And, all we have to do to see that is to open our minds to it. Let's open some minds, if we can! :)

Lee.

I love your stock, the lighting in all of them is wonderful. They're great for general pose-reference.
I was curious, don't feel like you have to answer if I seem nosey, how old are you?
I'm so horrid at guessing ages.
