Hey guys- I need to know people's take on nudity in comics for a NON sexual storyline. I'm working on a Green Lantern fancomic which is about 12 pages long, and I get that I need to label it as mature if I post it here, but I don't want people to be offended by the fact that there's naked constructs in it, and I don't want to do arbitrary censoring of those naked constructs like they do in comics, so natrally, I'll be posting it as mature with filtering here cause that's DA's policies.

The deal is that it's all artistic nude stuff, so there's nipples, and pubic hair, but it's not meant to be sexual. They're just naked. For those of you wanting to read non sexual comics of characters, would you be offended seeing nipples or pubic hair? Below I'll attach a work in progress of what the most problematic page is to me-

Context (Please note- if you are disturbed by artistic nude or are underage, these links are not filtered):-

With nipples and pubic hair

Without pubic hair but with nipples

Please note, it looks WAY too strange to omit the nipples entirely and call her nude, so one of the above options really needs to be what I go for.

Hey guys- I'm a 30 something year old artist which enjoys fine art and making comics. I am a fan of a few fandoms, currently Green Lantern, Phoenix Wright, King's Quest / The Silver Lining, and Doctor Who.

I LOVE OCs- making them, writing about them, finding out other people's OCs, and drawing them.

I also LOVE ART. If you want to talk art, I'm always game to rattle on for hours about art equipment, techniques, books and stuff. If you want to talk about art or get critique, feel free to comment / PM me and I'm more than happy to give text wall responses :love:
