The arguments on this image are strange. Anatomically i'm sure she's legit. But I'd also be willing to bet photoshop was used to touch up areas, or alter lighting or filtering or whatever. But i'm not saying there's anything wrong with that at all.
Posing is sexul, sexy, provocative, whatever. But not against site rules so reporting this for anything is a bit... silly. Her shirt is a little transparent, just a little. And yah I see nip. But this is tame as hell in comparison to the actual porn crap people post on this site. I don't find this pornographic- just provocative. But the posing and expression is well done, the composition itself is framed nicely. Not a huge fan of the background but it fits.
I have to say overall I really like it. It's sensual, not so much sexual. The fact that her 'sex' is not in your face and the main focus lends me to think some effort was put into this and the focus isnt her genitals it's just HER. And I love that. Its sexier in my opinion that shoving tits in your face. Hot, very hot.
I can see you out a lot of work into the picture! And it looks good! But the hip is VERRY unrealistic At the groin region of this woman you threw proportion out of the window Also her lips were a bit too obvious of a touch up so was her eyes As I said I can see you put a lot of work into this picture But you can touch things up without being so excessive
it was. not shape-wise, but the skin lacks texture, pores, etc. its even lighter in tone on the left than it is the right. its been warped to all hell. the original should have been left alone, her figure can do the work.
thats the point of retouching: do it so slightly and gradually that the untrained eye cant catch it, and keep going until its distorted beyond recognition. then, we just accept that distorted vision as reality, giving us unrealistic expectations of beauty.
I can certainly understand your opinion though I do not necessarily agree in such an extreme manner. The heavily worked up stuff that makes people look almost ENTIRELY different, yah that's a bit much and in some cases grossly unnecessary. I can see how it affects unrealistic expectations. But by the same logic it's morally wrong to enhance our eyes with liner or shadow, our lips with rouge, or our cheeks with blush because it's not "real". It all depends on how you look at what the "adding" process lends to the final work. The person working on this isn't trying to "sell you" any kind of products it was simply to make the girl look more desirable, attractive, fit? or whatever the case may be. If you were creating a drawing wouldn't you want to enhance it to make it more appealing to look at? Erasing sketch lines, darkening the final outlines, adding colors and blending... not everything is uber awesome sexy beautiful on its own, some things need a little oomph. Not saying this model is ugly or even NEEDS that kind of work, but if the image was worked on, i'm sure it was to make the final more appealing not to make people think "I want to kill myself because ill never look like that"
As a massage therapist I did take anatomy classes. Plus its in my field of study to STUDY body structure, how a person gait is, how they slouch, how they bend and flex, in order to see what ails them. And as an artist, well BAM! Studied body structure.
If you take a closer look, you would understand that her right hip is cocked up in order to support the balance & weight of her upper anterior body that is flexed outward, plus she is slightly supporting herself while leaning forward. Her main support is on *her* right leg (not our p.o.v. right btw) which will cause it to look strange. Plus her posterior is jutting outward behind her, not forward. She is perfectly fine.
You can take this image to any professor and they will tell you the same thing, but in more eloquent terms.
