It doesn't really surprise me that this one has a DD, just an awesome piece :D

I do wonder why the heart thing isn't a bit more textured since the whole image has some sort of texture while that thing is very clean. Keep up with the good work :)

Wow, once I drew something similar. The rose with a plug part. But you have it much nicer :)
You have really good stuff! :)

I was thinking more along the lines that passion is powered by emotions that the heart gives,, but either could be correct.

I think it could be a play on how Venus is the Goddess of love and beauty, and how the one can create the other. Love (the heart) is ultimately the power source of beauty (the rose). :shrug: Or something like that... I have no idea what the artist's real intention was, or maybe there was no specific intent :giggle:

I'd also recommend not commenting on the comments you get on the Venus deviation, just remove them. It gets you nowhere to say "shut up" to people. Just let it die on its own and focus on all the pretty art here instead. :aww:

I don't think you understood the intent of my post as I was not questioning the rose or the heart, but the reason for the plug and outlet attached to them. The mixing of water and electricity is what I find distracting on this piece as the metaphor of the Goddess of love holding symbols of love still exist without the plug attached to the rose. Because of that inclusion it both changes the meaning that may be taken from the piece, which since I am not the creator I cannot say what meanings are placed, and also adds the touch of surrealism which may be the very reason those are included. What I had meant by distracting was that I had trouble getting past the electric plug to enjoy the piece on a whole as I, as I have said, felt it was out of place, thus my mind asked why the plug was there.

As for its section, it was linked to me, so I didn't see the section it was under when I posted. Have a good evening.

excuse me. release the air from your head, no need to be rude and so assuming. it was a simple question about the piece, nothing relative to the nudity,

I feel odd for saying that the heart and the rose, in my opinion, are the entire reason for the piece. I have this feeling that you took one look and saw "naked woman" and anything else was just in the way. Please note that the painting is listed as "surreal", not in the "nudes" section.

I love this concept. I love the body type being athletic and not just thin, the unique shape of her breasts, everything. It's a unique take on Venus and I'm really glad I got the opportunity to see it.

It's a matter of personal choice. Maybe the artist wanted to break away from the standard that women "have" to shave their pubic area. I think it's a very bold stance that meets people on either end of the argument in the middle (pun intended). Venus represents love and femininity and beauty and I think the fact she has hair at all is a bold move that I appreciate and whole hearted applaud.

I feel odd for saying this as no one on the first page seem to gave noticed, the rose has a plug at the end and the heart has an outlet... Interesting but distracting to me, I can't help but ask why.

That was very considerate of you, to help that person out like that. The previous commenters complained that he/she? was immature, when in fact they were showing themselves to be juvenile, intolerant, impatient and rude.

I appreciate your kindness...it's refreshing to see instead of hate. Merry Christmas!

It's more than a little too big; that's how you know it's completely abstract in this image. If anything, it's meant to resemble a simplified illustration of a heart in a textbook. Your heart is only about the same size as your fist.

"Well it is a planet...
NOT A NAKED FEMALE O.O"

*facepalm*

The planets were named after the Roman Gods & Goddesses. Who were originally stolen from the Greeks & renamed.

I adore surreal works! I'm not much one for the naked female form, but I can appreciate it, especially when it's done tastefully.

This reminds me quite a bit of Salvador Dali's work. Was he perhaps an inspiration?

Either way, amazing interpretation of the goddess! I see you used the heart, and the rose, which are both commonly used to portray love, and given that she's the goddess of love, I don't think you could've picked better. =)

Congrats!
