So, here is another edition! And the main theme, for this 5th Art-Trail Contest, will be

Nude/Human body/Anatomic Study

The naked human body is one of the most ancient subject in art. There were nudes in art when art was not... art yet! Representing the naked body means showing intimacy, humanity, nature, frailty, beauty, sensuality, essence. Sometimes all these sides of human being together.

Here is my entry! Thank you for hosting! Looking forward to seeing everyone's work. :)


Thank you for the inspiration!! This is my first art challenge here. Newbie inspired!!
Here is my entry ..thank you

I guess the entry must be with NSFW tag, right?:)


if these are not safe for work maybe its time to change job:p


I work at home, so I even can watch pics of gay lions freely:) But I'm asking becouse it's nudity anyway, and I thought it needs the tag. Just asking:)


I'd say no, since art never is NSFW. but everyone will act as he prefers :)


Oh, I see. Then I will not use it:) Thanks:)


I would say the NSFW is probably advisable, not everyone's attitude to nudity is the same. Simply calling it Art is not a good enough excuse in my opinion especially when a lot of people view their accounts in work time. As an example Deborah De Robertis is a very thought provoking artist but her work is most definitely NSFW and yet it is classed as Art by a lot of people.

I would like to nominate https://steemit.com/art/@federacion45/sketch-for-steemit-11

@federacion45 , personally I am no artist but I really like his sketches

Resteeming for you on Steemit Blogger Central...keep up the great work.


Anytime, hope that helped a little. Need anything I am down to share with our crowd anytime

I can get on board with this!! So excited! Tasteful nudity should not be considered nsfw! :(


no NSFW tag, In my opinion :)


I love that thought. But, until I learn that it is close to a consensus, I'll be erring on the side of caution for my own work. I would love it if my art work didn't need such a label.

This who project is so inspiring. I love that there is so much participation and support for building this artist community and the art itself. Thank you for the mention @art-trail. I'll be sharing your post to be FB'd and Twittered by @sflaherty who runs Steemit Blogger Central. YAY for ART!!


My pleasure indeed!

I think I'll get to work on this, if I still handle d brush like I use to, but I'm excited that I'v got a reason to start painting again. @art-trail more colours 👍

Thanks again for throwing this little shin dig for us. Does a pastel count as a painting?


well, usually it doesn't. but we are not that stringent ;)

I am a Jesus lover and resent art about naked people.

Please excuse my dimwittedness @art-trail, you mean, one submission per each of the three categories, means a possible three submissions for each artist, or, you mean, only one submission per artist for only one of the categories?


3 for each artist, if he wants.
or one can submit just for 1 or 2 categories :)


Thank you very much for the clarification @paolobeneforti. 8)

What about straight pornography? Guaranteed not safe for work and if I remember correct it wasn't as shocking as one might think. I could even make it more subtle.


if it is NSFW, I think it have to have the tag


Usually if it just a drawing or painting it is fine, nude photography usually not, no matter how artful it is. Of course, thIs all depends on your boss. If he is a screaming street preacher you might consider no internet at all at work...or a new job
