There's too many things to take in consideration for this, depends on the picture's context, the artists's skills, the character, the story, etc etc.
In specific for your artwork, full frontal, tasteful or partial nudity is my personal favorite because your rendering skills are terrific

I like a full range of skin showing.  I love armored characters in full plate or fanciful leathers. I like the scant livery that highlights the nice bits and I love full nudity as well.  Sometimes a strategic bed sheet, shadow or body part or something can be provocative. I suppose it depends on the character and the setting for that character.

Quite revealing, so imagination can flow and undress. There was an overflow of nudity and barely covered bits for me in life and MMO gaming, so I mostly like something... relaxing to my mind. With such diet beautiful bodies are appreciated at their's fullest potential, especially in action or good pose.

Full Nudity or Nearly Naked. The body is nothing to be ashamed of. If you must undress it, go for broke and let it all show! :la::heart:

Sorry for my bad English...
I can't give a definite answer. If the Fawn or Fairy lives in the deep woods, how they can buy high fashion coat, dress and shoes? And where? : ) I think there will be onli skin and nude on them. And fur of course : )
If a woman puts on the armor for battle, I think it will close not only the chest but also the abdomen and legs. Armor-bra with nude stomach looks cool, but not so natural like full armor : )

...and your works - full nudity or full covered - are terrific : )

It depends on the intent.

What I think is that clothes can be used wonderfully. Some pieces have an interesting history and a large symbolic meaning. It is a large field of symbols and messages can be used very effectively and I would like you to see exploring that, because I am sure that you can do a lot with that.

The thing is that I love the way you do skin - was actually why I got stuck on your page when I discovered it. However, nudity for nudities sake is not my thing, it needs some contexts. So.... hard to pick an option.

Judging by your DA favorites you seem to prefer "Fully dressed" :) Because there are people who have ONLY nudes in their faves, so I guess they'd go for Full nudity. Sorry I should have made this question "what kind of art you tend to +fav the most" but I'm dumb and only just figured it out a minute ago.

Well, if the artwork shows the beauty of the human body with all of its gloriously deformed anatomy (it IS deformed - eg. compare human foot to any animal!) I will fav it regardless how much nudity there are. I have 2 folders dedicated just for people - "Hoomanzy" and "Zdjecia ludzi". And you will find lots of nudes there.
The same goes for clothes. If the diapery is oustanding made, with all the niuances of the folds showcased - I will also fav it. Again, regardless how much the cloth covers the body.
It is even better if I can get two in one: masterful painted cloth with knowledable take of the human body.

"what kind of art you tend to +fav the most"
I would say that one which shows either skill or good thought behind it. I can fav something that others may find lacking, just because I noticed something promising, or intriguing in their [developing] style.
If a nude has the great execution* - I will fav it.
If a partaly clothed has the great execution - I will fav it.
If the armor has the great execution - I will fav it.
Because I see the positives in each.

*or something that I find interesting, intruguing or promising

The only thing I dislike is exploiting the human body or using it for shallow sexual exuse only. I treat it as a downgrade. I'm here for art after all. And even kinks and fetishes can be okay if they are work of art as well, are respectful to the model and show dignity to the human body.

I much agree with your statements, I have pretty much the same thoughts about it and if some other artist posted this poll, I wouldn't know what to choose. I guess why I posted it is just to see if the majority of my watchers are comfortable with nudity or not, but I guess that's silly because I think people wouldn't even watch me if they had problems with the naked human body.

I have no preference! Clothing to me is an expressive accessory, and the body is just hidden magnificence. In the right dose, either of them, whether combined or separate, can look marvelous—not to mention that the more revealing, the more opportunity there is to create anatomically interesting forms without the blindfold of cloth!

If the art is good, it's irrelevant. I've seen great art and terrible art in every one of those categories. So to me it doesn't matter how much skin is showing or covered, as long as the art is compelling and well executed in a style I enjoy.

Oh sure, but there wasn't an option for "doesn't matter as long as the art kicks @$$." Hopefully enough people feel the same way. Who cares what judgmental prudes think anyway? Do what you love and let your audience find you.

I like all of them except fully clothed/armored.
Or armor that covers every little bit. 
But with the others it mainly depends on the picture.

Ok, this is hard. I technically prefer what ever the image calls for.
I chose nudes because that is what I like most in classical painting (Sir Frederic Leighton, William Bouguereau, and Herbert Draper have the best nuuuudes). Mostly because I love to study from them. And honestly because the body is pretty.
But hey, I also love to look at fairy tale illustration and I don't want to see tits for the twelve dancing princesses, but I do wanna see tits for the little mermaid cuz it just makes sense lol
Mostly I want what ever clothing feels right for the image. No nonsense censorship because your scared of tits or a dick, and no nonsense fan service because only porn gets views. (unless the purpose of the image is fan service. Then it's perfectly fine.)

I like your analogy of the princess dressing up because she wants to show off her riches and the mermaid in the nude simply because it's just natural for her. The question is would you choose the mermaid or the princess in the end XD

Your skills in drawing the human body are amazing (maybe the best on DA) and I like to see as much as possible. It may sounds weird, but I especially like your drawings of the penis - it always catches my eye. :D (Big Grin)

In general, I like my characters tastefully clothed. A bit of sideboob now and then is never a bad thing, but one should never have their crack showing. 

But from you, I do enjoy the occasional nude. Normally nudes are shameless and completely sex-oriented, but with you.... well, they're still shameless and sex-oriented, but at least they're artfully done!

Yuni Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2016
I agree, most of other artists who draw shameless and sex-oriented stuff make me feel sick too, I don't even know why. When I draw the nude parts, I try to just forget what the society thinks of it and draw it as if it was just a part of the body (which it is) and work on it as carefully as I work on the character's face. So it technically makes no difference if I'm drawing a hand or a penis, so it may be kind of like nudism in a way :D

This is a tough one and I'm not sure what to vote for. While I do enjoy total nudity as much as the next guy, I do also quite enjoyed certain styles of "clothed". Bottomless is a huge favourite, as is nude + thigh-highs. And then there are full outfits that are elegant and exotic, even sheer, flaunting the body by either revealing it entirely, by see-through or strategically designed/placed fabric, or showing off the figure while teasingly, barely concealing the "little details" yet also blatantly making it clear that nothing is worn beneath.

I like artistic nudes, basically anything that adheres to DA's guidelines, I'm not crazy about sex in images/penetration/masturbation. But i do love a nice nude figure with good muscle tone and a pretty face and an interesting pose. I think that separates it from pornography is the lack of sex and just the focus on the structure and form.

I see SO much with my watchs when i am looking for works to request for my groups.. but my rune of thumb is if your showing it you may as well either cover all up or show it all. Using clothing as a prop is one thing. deliberately trying to hide or cover or "allude" is nothing more than being a cock tease.
