Critiques

shadow wolf by moppaa
by moppaa

Simply put this piece is amazing. It has excellent use of photoshop creating a believable blending of the images. You see lots of anime...

The Demonic Succubus by HolyNiwa

This piece is remarkably eye catching mostly because of the way you have the shadow playing across the character. Nearly all the reason...

Philosophy Friday #36 ~ Metaphysics of Society

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 27, 2014, 7:53 AM


Before I touch on this weeks subject I want to remind people that I'm by no means an expert these are just my own thoughts approached from a questioning philosophical point of view.

Secondly this week I'm going to talk about some things that some people might find offensive and I do not necessarily agree with all of the points I'm going to touch on this week. Please keep this in mind.

With those two things said lets get into what I mean by this weeks title. Metaphysics of society in the situation I'm going to touch on is the way that our society defines different things as right, wrong, healthy, unhealthy, perfection, beauty, etc.

Our society and cultures have created some idealistic views on some of these things. For example beauty for women is defined by the physical appearance the woman might have. How skinny is she? Does she have large breasts? Does she have a big nose? These things shouldn't be what we use to decide if someone is beautiful or not. As I put it to a friend recently when discussing this. "Hot is hot whether you are skinny, muscled, or heavyset." Our society does not agree with me on this. Society states that you have to be of a certain body type in order to be considered beautiful. Society perpetuates this by only using the people that look a certain way as the models for advertisements.

Next we get to a touchier thing. There is a huge "feminist" movement on tumblr and other places on the internet right now. One of the discussions is on how rape is never okay which I agree with. However not that long ago in our history it was considered okay for waring tribes to take the women from the other tribe and essentially rape them. So that you weaken your enemies while strengthening yourselves. So while I agree that it is not okay various cultures in our history have at points considered it okay within certain sets of criteria. If we hadn't moved into the "civilized" society we are in now it might still be okay.

Last is probably the idea that is going to upset people the most. I enjoy the work various artists do around the internet because of their art styles. Recently an artist got a lot of abuse because they did a piece using characters from a cartoon in a NSFW situation. The characters are yes considered underage as teenagers according to what the show states about their age. This created a large argument over if it was okay or not. On one side you have the of course it isn't as the characters are even stated as being underage. Next you get the side of the argument that has to do with the characters being "FICTIONAL" and having a proper understanding of what reality is and isn't so what does it matter.

We run also into our own history here. Such as that in feudal Europe many women, and men where married before they where out of their teenage years even having children. Part of this was because it was the expected norm but also because life expectancy was shorter.

So between the factor of our own human history, and the characters being fictional we run into a situation that might make you wonder is it truly something our society should consider wrong or is it something we need to be more flexible on depending on the content, fiction/reality, and our own human development.

Ultimately our society tends to place the world int blacks and whites. While in reality we have far more shades of grey than we do blacks and whites.

Before I go I want to remind you I'm breaking down things as an over arcing question of does our society force us to see things a certain way.

Until next time relax and enjoy life.

Artist | Student | Varied

An aspiring artist currently getting a degree in animation. I work hard at what I do and no matter what piece of art I create or how I create it I attempt to put an artistic uniqueness to it. Over the last two years my art has grown greatly but I feel like I am struggling to discover where my inspiration truly lies.

Hope that my art inspires some people as much as other artists over the years have inspired me.

Best advice I was ever given is that no piece of art is bad; but it is never finished until the artist dies.
