Nude Art – Artistic Modeling – “Victim”

Nude Art - Artistic Modeling

Anshu Christa Jacobson - Nude Artistic Mode

Photo: VICTIM
Model: Christa Jacobson

Many of you know that I am a model and also do “nude” modeling. The reason that I separate the modeling from the nude modeling as a description is because so many people have a problem with anyone that is nude.

Nude art is a work depicting the vision of an artist working with the human form naked. Be it paintings, photographs, or mixed media, the nude art is a term attempting to give an artistic depiction of a nude human form. Some of the earlier artists who used nude models for their art were Michelangelo, Botticelli and DaVinci.

Above is an artistic piece that was digitally enhanced to portray the artist expression.  The name of the art work is called “Victim”.  The original picture comes from “Artistic Expression; Book One” which can be found on Amazon.com.

If any of you want to follow my artistic blog, you can find it here:

I hope that you enjoy the artistic photography, and see the beauty in the human expression of art.  Thank you all for your support within the martial arts, as well as the human expression of art called life.

I wish you all the best.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Darkness

“Just as the ninja operated in the shadows centuries ago in Japan, a new master of the art again comes from the darkness. Training you has been my greatest accomplishment, and it is clear the student has surpassed her master.”

Kobayashi Ichiro; 20th Soke Tomo Ryu
(The day he awarded Anshu Menkyo Kaiden & Sokeship)

*********************

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett
(“Terry” Pratchett – English Novelist)

*********************

Art is the desire of a person express them self, to display and share the reactions of their personality to the world.

In this photo I wanted to use the contrast of the room so that people would look at the arts behind me, yet keeping my body / silhouette directly of the middle of the picture, to help with the “IN / YO” of the photograph.

Just as the screen behind me shows the dramatic difference between tiger and dragon, the photo also shows the contrast between light and dark. This in itself is also a major lesson of ninjutsu.

The screen behind me was painted by Kano Tanyu in the edo period (1602-1674) The piece is called Dragon and Waves; Tiger among the Bamboo.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson.

Take Care, Be Safe and Good Luck in your Journey of Budo

I hope that you all enjoy the book, this is art, this is not porn, all of the poses are from the renaissance era, strongly emphasizing the works of Michelangelo.


This is not a pornographic book. The images contained in this book have been created with the sole intention of portraying the nude body as art. There is a difference between beautiful artistic expressions of the nude body and the portrayal of explicit, indecent sexual acts. Those who have not been exposed to different levels of nude art will often find that they cannot see the difference; thus the result is the common thought of all forms of nudity as an indecent pornographic act which leads to closed minds and lack of artistic understanding of the human expression. Artistic Expressions is here to us help see the beauty of the human body as art and to show the world that nudity does not have to be distasteful or indecent; it can be portrayed as a natural artistic expression of the life that we live.

Thank you again for all of the support, I hope that you all enjoy the book!
