So, it's been a few weeks since I uploaded to Pixiv. Have I learned anything from the experience?

...Nope! XD

Well, perhaps I've not gained any new knowledge about myself/my art, but I have confirmed a few things.

For one, my characters are who they are/who I've claimed them to be, esp. where it pertains to Ribbon, Ball and Timmy.
Drawing 'Timmy frontals' didn't reveal he or my pikas as secretly 'horny' characters or any such---the new freedom offered by Pixiv didn't see my pikas do anything they wouldn't do ordinarily, neither did Timmy/his situations shift gears in any way (ie, every one of my Pixiv subs could be redrawn in the usual, censored way without losing anything meaningful).

In short, though I had greater freedom, there was nothing to take advantage of.
From my perspective, Timmy has always been 'naked'. Is he more so now? ...Debatable, but I'd lean towards 'no'.

So far as my watchers were concerned, the feedback I received had been generally positive (this wasn't unexpected).
I can say I'd received confirmation from some watchers that I'm not alone in saying 'I have mixed feelings about nude art/cuddly fur scenarios'. I appreciate the honesty. :3

I don't worship the status quo (I draw nude 8-year-olds, nuff said!), neither am I convinced absolutely that God is against my art (I've seen some evidence to the contrary), but in saying these things, it's difficult to find (yet imperative that we do find) a comfortable balance with artistic expression and religion/culture.
Western culture demands we keep our clothes on, yet is obsessed with taking them off (for entertainment, etc---America is both very Puritan and very oversexed ...and I'm not unconvinced one doesn't beget the other).

There is a temptation to say if we can understand and explain away our feelings, we're free to deny them. We are not. :3

Society isn't wrong in keeping us dressed (albeit there's room for improvement), and neither is it good to believe our bodies and sexual feelings are inherently sinful (though our actions can certainly lead to sin).
There's a balance that must be found, esp. if we're to understand ourselves as sexual beings (ie, don't suppress every feeling that comes along---allow yourself to meditate on it, to understand what it is and from where it comes ...if it leads to a bad place, so be it---at least it's understood).
I've used art to this ends, and I'd say it's worked out fine (and has managed to entertain some fellow furs in the process). :3

...So, what's next for Timmy and company? Likely the same ol, same ol---the pikas will continue to provide Timmy with cuddles; the skunk has many pounces left, and Timmy has many poofs ...the wolves are mean as ever and the foxes remain (well) foxes. And that, I think, is how it should be. :3

well   this is not a good place to discuss borderline topics as politics religion or cultural issues...

yes it is a cultural shock to pic on some topics... and nudity is one of them...  many artist self cencored them to avoid public alienation... but even so  the works are actually done...  and there will be always people who whant to see more... (maybe because they really enjoy the art or the are just so twisted in mind than a normal inocent pic could mean a lot of dirty things for them)

Aside from that...   many galleries got different topics... Inkbunny seems to be a furry cub art gallery...  and pixiv... is more anime, manga, oriental society, aimed gallery; and the cultural bassis there are a lil different...  for a part they understand Draws, digital models and histories are part of the fiction... sore there is no crime to pursuit... (maybe it is a bad taste... or a hentai thing... but really a crime)

you are is good... i like it....  more of your draws are cute ^^   as for Timmy...  well he looks an angel for me... (As for myslef I always distrust the heavenly creatures) but he seems agood guy... too inocent for now... and i got the feeling he will be more developed in the future... and probably he will be looking even more Celestial in the future  who know....  he can be turn to the dark side if you don´t take care of him...

remember in the end...  the Animal/Beast in use could overtake our action if it is left unleashed and as human beings we got the priviliage of choice... and if we choice badly sometimes could lead you to inmense joy... but most of the time lead you to suffer... (talking from a mere biological and natural point of view)

for now... be proud of you... you have done good so far...

I've always been open with my watchership about the whys and hows of my art---most here know I'm Christian (some have seen me freak out about it, even) and have strong feelings about my art and its merits/shortcomings.

I've written a bit about the possibility of my art becoming dark: https://inkbunny.net/s/1761641

My Timmy arts are absolutely viewed differently by different persons ...and I allow and even embrace that. Such is one reason I allow certain works/stories to be ambiguous/open-ended (with the understanding that, canonically, nothing 'too something' happened). :3

I really don't care about Pixiv, save its AUP allowed me to conduct this experiment. Otherwise, the art would have gone here (where my watchers are). :3

As for my animal side...I'm aromantic, non-sexual. I have 'feelings' and all the body parts work ...but I have no interest in sex (been there, done that). My art (in part) reflects how I feel about it. :3
