The main problem I have with these sharing sites is that they don't discriminate. My brief encounter showed that most anything and everything gets posted. One even included a failed painting attempt of mine. I'm guessing the model took and posted the picture without my knowledge. Unless there is some educational purpose for doing so, posting flawed art just lowers the discourse.
So now the question arises: To what extent does, (would, could) the real world of figurative drawing and painting exist without the virtual one?
