Happy Pride! by ScaredStoked

Happy Pride!


Happy (albeit quite late) pride month! Yay!

I thought now would be as good of a time as ever to talk about sexuality (or lack thereof) in relation to my art. While I understand some may find it surprising, or in some way contradictory, none of my art is intended to be sexual and it's honestly quite disparaging to get so many sexual comments on my art. On one hand, yes, I'm grateful that you enjoy my art, but on the other hand, I find it extremely off-putting to have someone think of my work in such a way. If you couldn't tell by now, I'm a sex-repulsed asexual and don't understand much about sexual attraction. I draw my characters in such a way because it's aesthetically pleasing, in the same way you'd find a nice old car or a room filled with nice green plants pretty. There is no difference to me. And so it's often discouraging to have people brush off my art as just soft-core porn, because that isn't what it's supposed to be at all, and it feels like people don't care about the time, effort, or meaning I put into my art. And my art really isn't even that sexual in the first place. Nipples aren't sexual. I don't include any genitalia in my art for a reason, and this is why.

My art was never and will never be intended to arouse or elicit any sexual feelings in others. It is only ever supposed to be appreciated for the pose, composition, and color, just like any other painting you'd find at a museum. Not as porn.
