This photo has proven to do everything we wanted it to do.

Provoke.

i have comments telling me its completely disgusting, too far... stupid, pointless, not art, not worthy of being looked at... funny, amusing, amazing...

im being both congratulated and ostracized for this image, and the DD

so i want to thank ^RockstarVanity for having the courage to post something that was certain to stir up such emotions from the DA community.

I dont care if you hate it, if you love it, if it makes you sick, if you think its too much, not enough, or just stupid and pointless. it is everything I wanted it to be.

and thank you for checking it out and having whatever feeling you have toward it.

i welcome all your love and all your hatred. :)

well... when i first saw the photo all i could thought was WHAT THE FUUCK??? but after spending two more seconds seeing it i started to like it and two second more and i loved it. really powerful, and funny. (that is the expression i made when i had my first period XD)
aand, i know you want to kill beauty, but... would you be mad if i say that all you do (being yourself) is really beautiful? (and you have a gorgeous face, too)

Personally, I like the concept as it does in fact stir either the emotion of disgust or humour in others.

Although I dislike the photo itself, as it look as though Jeffree is bleeding from the ass and it splattered all over the floor as he sat and assumed a pad would somehow help...

The photo could have turned out better in my opinion. But once again, it is my personal opinion/critique.

:hug: You're very welcome. There are a lot of people who don't seem to grasp that they don't have to like everything they see on dA or everything that is featured as a Daily Deviation. I hope those people learn to accept that the sun does not rise and set on their personal tastes, cause life is a lot more fun when everything doesn't have to be sterile, bland and censored for the benefit of the fragile little minds :)

Plus, art's meant to be conflicting, combative. Every artist of past ages who could have taken note of current conformism would be in a fit of rage if not for pictures like this one =p

...shouldn't be called art?

IMHO, I think anything that pushes perception and stirs emotion IS art, as opposed to 'safe' topics (not knocking the cutsy, the cuddly or the mundane).

I like it! Why? Because the look on my face when I first saw it...the sense of WTS that came over me, the feminine part that says 'Say whaaaa!?'...honestly, as much as some piece of me is repulsed, another admires the frank tart honesty that comes with this piece...bravo!!!:D

And congrats on the DD :)

Haha, it is interesting. I would love some more info about what you were trying to depict, though; I'm just not sure what exactly I should be seeing.

I've yet to meet Jeffree besides a passing hello at warped tour but I know his music manager Mike. Great shot by the way and congrats on the DD.

It was an amazing concept, beautifully executed.

Don't mind the haters.
They secretly wished their period was as hot as Jeffree's.

I thought the piece was a bit disgusting and (I don't really like Jeffree Star honestly,) but it made me laugh pretty hard and I thought it was cool. It's also true that art is something that provokes emotion.

I myself was offended only that more people praise gore and such than political art (Although it may hit harder). I have drawn some pretty...non-offensive Nazi things and I've gotten lesser, more-concentrated slack than I saw on any comments of this . So somehow gore is less than politics...

Anyhow, I thought it was great. Keep doing what you're doing.

some art’s all neat and clean

Very cool :evillaugh:
Also ironically like my own reaction to the first time, a combination of WTF and Oh my god, I’m dying :faint:
If everyone followed what polite society deemed appropriate then there would be no art.

It is a genius way to get attention! And the Psychology behind is that any attention is better then no attention (for us Artist's)! And if you have no shame u bust out with "weird and shocking"...

Someone once defined "art" as anything that stirs emotion or responses.

Thus, what you have produced is DEFINITELY art.

Warmest congratulations for a job well done, friend. :aww:

Well, in the end the only opinion that really matters is yours. And very few artists can look at something they created and say, "Yeah, that's exactly how I wanted it to come out."

So forgetting the DD, praise, and venom, I'd say congratulations based solely on that! :clap:
