No, I am not putting a mature filter on this.

Circle Circle Triangle OH MY GOD PORN!
Followed by myself wanting to hit you over the back of the head and go "No, it is a circle circle triangle. You are the one that has made it into porn."

Goes to show the subtle nature of shapes and that you don't need to shoot a photo of your vajayjay to be seen as "provocative". So for all you people out there that think that the only way to get noticed in the world and be a true "artist" is to shoot photos of your girlfriend's bumholes all I can say to you is "Circle".


Edit: Thankyou so much for all the enlightening, funny, whimsical and thought provoking comments that I am receiving on this from people coming on over from `Pelicanh journal. I honestly was not expecting this.

You have been very genteel in your understanding behind this picture and for that I am very grateful and really happy that one of my images has done that for people.

I have found this has now become somewhat of an inkblot photo with people likening it to a dog, an owl on a bender (which has me giggling so hard to the point that I am going to bring this painting inside and call it "Own on a Bender"), a face, Beaker from the Muppets...

It shows a lot into the people that are responding.

Again, thanks for taking the time :)

Edit: Oh my god! I got a daily deviation! What happened??! I looked through my inbox and all of a sudden it was up to nine hundred messages...

Lordie. For someone that has come back to this site to post their 365day project I am insanely flattered.


Note: This is what started it to be honest.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-01-24
For Day Five by *PoisonedPure the suggester writes, "This piece is clever and humorous. The debate between art vs. porn is ongoing, and will likely never be resolved. This piece however puts those who cry porn at near everything a tongue-in-cheek slap, and those who don't a good laugh. Circle, circle, triangle forever." ( Suggested by Amotu and Featured by tiganusi )

Totally saw a dog until porn was mentioned, spending 10 minutes wondering why porn was mentioned, then giving up and reading the comments.
NightWorldGrl Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow...I must be really innocent-minded today. I thought that it was a dog at first. The two circles being eyes, the triangle a nose, and the squiggly lines the shape of it's muzzle. I didn't know what that people would take it as a naked person until I read the description! XD
ForeignButterfly Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2012
I saw a dog too!
KidShenck Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Honestly, I think those circles are fake.
Hah, I thought it was a face too! The description made me smile. :)
iceofwolf Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Lol. Strike me up as another one linked by Pelican's blog on a random curiosity click after his Easter Zombie greeting. The idea behind the picture is great. What I find most disappointing about some peoples' reactions to any form of art they see is that they can't accept that their reaction is their own bias, and not some unwritten law describing "how things must be". Pared down to its most basic levels, calling artistic nude porn is equivalent of saying it's bad art or it's not art. Since 'bad' is a subjective term, that makes it an opinion. Which is the same as saying abstract is not art.

I think I lost my point somewhere in this. I love the point you made with your art!
AttitoonZ Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011
The first thing I saw was two eyes and a mouth (manga style mouth).

(When I was in high school/early 20's . . . I would've EASILY seen two breasts and a vag.)

I guess this means I'm getting old . . . OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Brilliant job...brilliant ideea...1 lady who supports nudes! If this would come from a male maybe it would not be so surprising for me. This is a straight A! Ps.: Sorry for the bad english! :)

Reading through the comments, I got ashamed that I did see a body...
PoisonedPure Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
LOL! Don't be ashamed at that as I was thinking that I should have been more suggestive as so many people saw faces, dogs and owls. Here I was thinking either 1) People are lying 2) I did a crap job of making a rough shape woman or 3) People have all of a sudden got really innocent and I should stick to chucking up the photos of my cats just to play safe.

I've seen this concept done many times before, I'm surprised it got a DD since one would think the mods would recognize it. :/
PoisonedPure Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
Concepts are a dime a dozen. Pretty much like, well, everything in your gallery *shrugs*

It is how the individual person differentiates on the concept. But feel free to link me to all the concepts that have been done of this and I will put them on a link underneath mine so that they too can share in on this if you are so upset that this has received a Daily Deviation.
celestialwriter Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011  Student General Artist
I'm not upset, merely disappointed.

Concepts aren't so cheap like you think. There are many original things, even in my gallery.
PoisonedPure Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
Originality is only undetected plaguarism- Albert Einstein.

I guess that is why you have got so many Gir images, Link images and even on your commissioned pieces you can not subject yourself to give credit to the original owners of the pieces. That my dear is copyright infringement; otherwise known as "fanart".

Talk is cheap from a person that even their comic pieces are not original ideas. Browse webcomics or I can easilly link you to a few webcomics that I have got in my browse favourites on gaming and gaming related ideas with satire. Penny Arcade is a great example and has been around since 1998. Ctl Alt Delete is another one. Both of them are drawn in similar styles to your own work and I can link to most of your images in your comic where they have appeared in both webcomics on the topic at hand.

Thankyou again for your feedback, again you are more than welcome to link me with those concepts and discuss further your idea of originality but I have a feeling that you will not understand that there are millions of people in the world, themes are a dime a dozen but it is the person's own heart and soul put into the image and how they have put all the elements together to showcase that theme in their own personal way that makes a piece original.
celestialwriter Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011  Student General Artist
Because quoting Einstein makes your argument somehow legit.

I was merely pointing out that I've seen this done before.

I do not have any gir images. I would also like to point out that the jokes made with my comics are whimsickingly fun and my own interpretation. I also do not keep track of other webcomics, and because I don't consistanty update nor do I consider my works to be a webcomic.

Also on my commissions, the owner sometimes requests for me to not post who they are.

And just because someone has a dissenting opinion and isn't gawking over your photograph of a five-minute doodle doesn't mean you should attack them for it, and then make comments about thier gallery.

Naturally I make art to pay homage to my inspirations, but here are a few brainchildren of mine:
PoisonedPure Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
I have asked you three times now for images that are similar to this concept so that I can verify you point of view and opinion. You have not done so.

No attacks, but quite a lot of factual information in concurance to your original thoughts and latter comments backwards and forwards. I don't have time nor need to attack people on what they do.

Again for the third time please feel free to discuss this and GIVE EXAMPLES. So far I have not seen any, and I have stated that I would be interested to see and hear points of views from others that have had this idea and I am more than willing to pay homage and continue this concept and theme further to get more people thinking about it.

If you can not come up with this and continue with useless backwards and forward exchange that is not getting anywhere apart from the fact that

1) you think that the mods are stupid
2) you think that I am unoriginal
3) you have a dissenting point of view and the people that are here are gawking at a five minute doodle with no thought in it
4) you are disappointed because others out there in this big wide world have done this as well

then please feel free to leave as I am quite certain you have not got anything relative to say other than completely wasting my time.

Thankyou again for your points of views.
Have a good day. I am going to lock this down now and ban you as I am really not that interested in hearing back from you now that it has been three times that I have asked you for something and you can not deliver it.
SerenityRed777 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
"Concept" is the key word in your statement.
PoisonedPure Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
For my own personal interest I did do some Google searches to see how anyone else has put together the concept. I put in shapes in porn, shapes that are suggestive (which turned out hilarious results), circles, circle circle triangle, figure studies, shapes in figures, art satire...

Unfortunately my searches turned up fruitless. I saw plenty of images of fruit, furniture and plants that look like penis and flowers or purses like a vagina but none as this person stated.

If anyone does have any with the same concept I would be interested to see how they turned out and what discussions are made around the pictures, so feel free to link away to them :)

My what large, round, eyes you have.

No srsly it looks like eyeballs and mustache.
PhoenixGR Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
art you are touched by and you think about it in a deep way, as this piece does :)
porn is to arouse the sexual senses and for that purpose only to satisfy the eye, two major diferences, Art can never be part of porn at the same time, it might explicit content but not neceseringly porn.

Congrats on DD !

Ahaha, at first I saw a face, but then I realized the symbolism X3 That's hilarious and clever. We really are just circles, squares, and triangles. X3

Tell you the truth, I saw a dog...and then something else, before getting it and laughing. You must be some kind of genius!

CatcherRye Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I thought it was a happy face until the one who featured it as a DD mentioned the idea of the fight between art and porn. Either way, I think this is quite clever and your comment definitely put a smile on my face. :) Congratz on the DD!
Jesterbrand Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
I believe it's pronounced pr0n. XD

very awesome! almost like "anti-art" if I'm using that term properly. either way, it looks very happy for some reason. if it was a face, it looks like mine when I see a nakeds lady. >D

lol... you know your gay when you think that this is a bad drawing of a dog :P
Like the triangle is it's nose and then the two circles are it's crazy eyes. :P
The curves are kind of the way the dog's muzzle would go too.
Anyways yeah, I thought that was funny xD <3
