Nudity isn’t just to titillate the viewer, it can also be a symbol. I’d be the first to admit that a lot of my nude renders aim for the former but in the case of my Samara portrait, it’s the latter. If my aim were to titillate the viewer her expression would be different, I would’ve shown more skin and perhaps posed her in a provocative way but nope, this time around I wanted to portray Samara in an honest way, not as a Justicar but as a mum who’s endured so much. I used nudity as a symbol of her inner, true self as well as a symbol of vulnerability.
Well that was my intent at any rate. If anyone sees the portrait as sexual I apologise but I didn’t mean it to be like that at all. ^_^’
