A - Artistic Nudes
Aaahh... what better to start off our ABCs with some nekkid photos... Artistic Nude's popularity has somewhat increased in the past 7 years of deviantArt's history. Photos of flesh not only excites, turns on, and make us get off (depending on how pervy one gets), it also shows the intricacies of how much details we see in each different human body with no strings attached. Artistic nudity does not reflect on porn at

Everything Japanese
Many Deviants are fans of Japanese culture and art.  Some use Japan as a starting point for modern interpretation.

Others like to work in more traditional styles, such as the ink and wash method of Sumi-e.  For more information about this method, check out this

The real Japan - 'Kawaii'
These articles are created in the spirit of showing the Japan loving crowd on DeviantArt what Japan is really like through photography rather than the stylised super popular Japanese pop-culture. This article however would seem to re-enforce many of the stereotypical views of Japan due to the 'Kawaii' theme of this article. However, I wanted to show those who find it hard to understand why words like 'Kawaii' and other popular words from the Japanese language are used in comments on DA and becoming more commonly used in everyday speech. The reason is physiological in nature and can hopefully be explained by a blog I found on the subject:

Hi all,

It's been a long time, and I'm currently giving my best shot at my final year project, the final final project before I graduate!

My project's a short 15-minute film that tells the story of a HIV positive overcoming her fears and accepting her loved ones over a course of a motorbike road trip.

And, I'm looking for Make-up Artist & Art Director for this project! For make-up, we will need some special effects like scratches and dirt.

Production shoot is scheduled on 2nd week of January 2011.

Token sum, food & drinks will be provided. For those residing in Singapore only.

Interested please drop me a mail at
