Question: is this figure considered "nudity" for this forum

Recommended Posts

yea it would be, in general if you can see the business parts then you need to link to it instead of embedding the pic.

also keep in mind you can't use black bar's for some reason, it has to be a link.

business parts ... I hear this the first time.

 

In my opinion this would be no nudity, if it is not painted fleshy. But even then I could not see nudity in a monster like gargoyles and harpies, it is not a human (or elf, or dwarf and it is already beginning to be *gross* with the dwarf...)

 

Even a statue of a human would be not nude if it is naked. But I'm european and I know what american movies think about europeans. :-)

 

I had the same problem with my ghouls, didn't see in them nude humans, only monsters.

 

So I would link this gargoyle, too.

I've posted a figure that didn't show any "business parts" but still got removed. (It had a wide ribbon covering all the bits). So probably you want to err on the side of caution

Im with you on this one but people are bloody touchy about this sort of thing here :ph34r: btw thanks a lot, I'm thinking of nude female dwarfs now and I don't know If I should laugh or cry.

In Jay's case the ribbon was sculpted on, part of the original figure. Kinda like this Sophie http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Special%20Edition%20Figures/latest/01415

Or set up a blog with wordpress and just upload the image to the media area and then link away.

 

The forum, because its interactive, is just judged on a PG rating standard. If you don't see it in a typical Disney cartoon don't post it here, at least as far as nudity goes. (Why the suggestion of violence is ok but the suggestion of sex isn't I don't know. But I suspect its USA ratings related rather than necessarily Reaper staff opinion.)

Yeah, odd as it sounds, minis Reaper sculpts and sells are not always approved for showing on the forums. No idea why, may have to do with obscure US laws about what minors have access to, might have something to do with the laws of their home state of Texas.

 

The general US standard of nudity, as far as I can tell, is exposed female nipples/aureolae (but they are ok if covered even if their contours are perfectly visible), exposed genitalia, and any exposure of the backside cleft below the top few inches (which is sometimes shown for humorous grossout effect, as with the cliché of plumbers in low-slung jeans, but is not defined as nudity). This last may be debatable, but the first two tend to be always included.

I don't really understand that no-nudity policy, but my opinion could be quite controversial here, so I will refrain myself from expressing it ::):

I would think that it has to do with people getting on the forums while at work, near kids or other public places. The US is a surprisingly prude place when it comes to nudity and censorship.

For me it is not important why they have this rules. They are part of the forum, and I accept them. There is no need for me to understand them, if I can live with the rules.

      Hello forum family, my last fatigue was one of the Living Statue (Bronze one), but I chose to paint her like a living human heroine.
      This was a challenge, but a great opportunity to training my NMM and skin technics: the model is really curvy and the lack of edges make it really hard to bland the skin.
      Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the outcome :)

      Links for nudity:

      Front 1, Front 2, Right, Left, Back.

      I hope that you'll like her too :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you.

      Pictures cropped for nudity.  For uncensored results, see here.
      Although I don't think Mariliths are poisonous, I decided to paint her with coral snake colors, which was a bit tricky to get right.

      This is another I did again apologies this one had no top one either.  It's not a personal preference in figures its just I got a bunch of reaper minis on ebay as a starting point for the hobby and there were some doubles of several figures so I started on them first.  Please do not look if nudity offends ( or the painting ! :0) )

      Here is one I did last week and I thought I would put it on here, I searched around at other attempts at it and decided to have a stab at it.  I don't know if I should have censored this because her top half is naked but I did see that it looks like the moderator removes the image if it is not okay.  Apologies if there is any offence.
      I found this figure really hard to do as there was lots going on with bangles and arms plus I have no idea how to do scales.  I have next to no idea about highlighting as you can tell and I am just learning through trial and error so here goes.
      ( oh and the face got too much for me in the end as it this stage in my painting eyes are virtually impossible ! :) )

      This will be the leader of my band of snake women and medusae.  It's a quickie tabletop paint job because the Bones casting isn't great but I used the opportunity to practice some NMM on the weapons. 
       
      Head shot:
