As a follower of Christ, I don't belief drawing, painting, or sculpting a nude person is pleasing. Not in the sense that our bodies are an abomination, but the viewer is not going to be looking at a piece with the mindset of the art worlds definition of 'this is okay'. I don't want to draw something that will cause a person's mind to stumble.
So, getting to the point, my art teacher for drawing is going to have us draw a nude model. I asked if I can do a different project instead. She gave me a lecture on how 'you're supposed to suck up your religious beliefs and do the project' and 'only good artists can draw anything, even a nude'.
That's the first aspect. My other question is about graphic pictures. I'm a more physical person when I get mad. I have to hit something. Don't worry, I don't hit anyone! But I've broken several springs in my bed and I once broke a punch bag... Anyway, when I don't get my anger out by punching something I'll draw something graphic because I'm so mad.
Here's an example. It's not too graphic, but Is this an okay way of managing anger?
So...Here are my two questions.
What is considered the correct path in drawing nude models?
And Is it okay to draw graphic stuff to get my anger out over punching things and possible people?
