I know I don't speak for ANYONE but myself on this website, but the paintings you changed the viewing age on were some of my favorites and the thought that they might be offensive to some never occurred to me.  Out of curiosity, what made you decide to change the filter?

A couple of sensitive souls felt the need to police the vaguely painted nipples on a small figure study I posted. Admin chose to tag it mature for me, a distinction I didn't want to make. I feel that if the user is not mature enough to handle a simple figure study, then they are probably not mature enough to appreciate the rest of my paintings or, you know, most of art history. Until DA modifies its policy on illustrated nudity to catch up with the former nipple police at Facebook, I'll continue to tag everything mature.

I'm so sorry about that! The nipple police must have a lot of time on their hands... You're still a great artist and I can wait two years, haha. Good luck on everything!

I may have gone overboard with the explicit tag. Going to try to downgrade to moderate. Sorry about that.

Your portraits are just beautiful. You manage to capture colours and details so perfectly, and your art has so much life in it! It's really inspiring. I hope you don't mind me using one of your pieces as reference for a study (this drawing).
