I like this piece, the only thing I'm picky about with this though is that her hand is directly touching the main barrel of the tank while it's implied that it's in mid-fire with that yellow flash off to the side. It would be INCREDIBLY hot and she'd be in some pain. Also, tanks jerk back when they fire so she'd have a tough time being on it let alone in heels. XD It's still a good piece though! I love the amount of detail you put into it!
The piece is indeed colored very well, as well as the detail put into it, both top notch. But I am sort of surprised that the high heels, the heat and the jolt of the cannon are the only realism you take up issue with. The suit she is wearing is beyond unethical, and plus, who the hell is she posing for if the cannon is firing at someone? At least it is firing at someone presumably I know the sex appeal is pretty damn obvious, but if realism is what you are concerned about, she shouldn't be here in the first place. Maybe I am one of a few users out there who is sick and tired of the obvious pandering to the public for sexual appeal. Bottom line, the realism of the situation is that its a pinup, and that's it.
Sooo...attack me because you feel inadequate? Calm your tits.
Tanks don't only fire at enemies/other people, it could be a posed picture like true old-school pinup posters so take that into consideration before you bawk. Also, I didn't say they were the only things wrong with the picture. This is the person's STYLE, if I were going for a completely realistic picture there are obviously loads of things wrong here and I would have done an ACTUAL critique. See, there's no point in being a douche-bag and snapping at this artist because YOU don't like something. Sex sells, plain and simple. And DA is a place for all styles to come together and share, hence the reason for being a community.
Maybe next time, before you attack someone take a look at your own work and improve yourself first before spewing hate.
I didn't mean for it to sound that way, and I got upset because of what I saw. I guess it is because of all the blatant sex only related posts, as I don't feel it honestly respects women, it just makes them out to be sexual objects. Maybe I was wrong about the painting itself.
I wasn't getting mad at you, I was sort of adding to it. I realize my art isn't the best, as I am a beginner, going on only about 4 years.
I wasn't saying you are wrong for liking it. If I made it sound that way, I apologize. It does look nice, but I am saying that not everything about it was perfect. There is a comments section for a reason, I use it to say something a bit more than "Its amazing." Maybe I should have made my own comment, because I wasn't attacking you. But I stand by my point of the over-sexualization of women on Deviantart, as daily front pages usually have at least one nude or a few pinups. Its just my opinion.
Well, unfortunately that's what society wants to happen. Sex use to be a sort of a forbidden topic, but now people blab about their sexual encounters openly. Media does what it can to see what it can get away with and the new generations are just eating it up. People are more worried about what's going on in their phones than connecting with real people. It's a shame what's happening...they're being dumbed down.
I am glad you came back like this, it pissed me off to see someone lashing out at me out of nowhere. Thank you..and I'm sorry I retorted angrily. There are people who work incredibly hard on non-sexual art and get no views...then there are the people who are always on the front page and their art is just T&A and it's not even done well. So yeah, I understand your complaint...I really do, but there isn't much we can do about it. This site is HUGE and more than half of it prefers their art to be done like this.
