and let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that michaelangelo had probably never seen a girl naked and when he want to sculpt or paint them his mentality seems to be “wow, everyone likes women….they must be like…..buff dudes. i love buff dudes. women are buff dudes but with little chest lumps and no wiener”
And my personal favorite, Adam and Eve

It’s a day I just can’t make myself do homework so it’s a day when I doodle a Carrie Kelley instead.
Fem Art Friday Feature: Kara Walker
Contemporary artist Kara Walker deals with the complicated issues of race, gender, and sexuality in her art pieces. These themes are often explored through her well-known silhouettes pieces. In her own words…
“I was really searching for a format to sort of encapsulate, to simplify complicated things…And some of it spoke to me as: ‘it’s a medium…historically, it’s a craft…and it’s very middle-class.’ It spoke to me in the same way that the minstrel show does…it’s middle class white people rendering themselves black, making themselves somewhat invisible, or taking on an alternate identity because of the anonymity … and because the shadow also speaks about so much of our psyche. You can play out different roles when you’re rendered black, or halfway invisible.” [Source]
I learned about Kara’s work for the first time this past summer and it completely captivated me. It’s whimsical yet still political and very disturbing at times. I love it.
All of the above.
Hey, all you dudes complaining about the Hawkeye Initiative: See how Lady Sif is still hot even though her battle uniform is actually practical?
And observe how she is not standing in a way that thrusts out any perceived ‘assets’ but is standing like a Real Actual Person™.
Here she is - She-Hulk! I was thinking up ways on how to hint at her strength while still maintaining a graceful stance. Decided on this pose (somewhat inspired by images of Atlas bearing the world on his shoulders). She-Hulk may not be burdened by the weight on the world on her shoulders, but she CAN carry a hefty amount of weight - something which I *hope* I was able to depict here somewhat figuratively. Hope you all like! Thanks for looking :)
that is carved
THAT IS A ROCK
I have no idea how the artist manages to make it looks like not just cloth, but TRANSPARENT cloth. Amazing.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE HE PUT IN A CHAPEL? THIS BITCHING PIECE OF MARBLE.

Reblogging because batshit insane sculptors and horny statues are funny.
oh my fuck bless the shit out of this post
I thought this experience I had recently might interest you guys! I think it’s an exercise a lot of artists could benefit from.
CC: Thank you so fucking much for submitting this. Seriously.
Yes at that bottom line. When will white people learn they are the global minority in the realist sense of the world and the world don’t revolve around them. This exercise is super interesting as well cause I’m not an artist but wow, mentally what that takes is so interesting.
