Huge Update!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 4, 2013, 1:03 PM
Hey Guys!

So many of you have been sending me messages asking me why I haven't been as active on Deviant Art.
So here is a big update:

For those who don't follow me on
Name of Image   Name of Image   Name of Image Name of Image
Since January I've been working as a product ambassador (promotional modelling) for Nissan at all the Auto Shows around Canada (No I'm not in a bikini in front of the GT-R, I'm actually quite knowledgeable about each and every vehicle from Nissan).  January I was in my hometown Montreal and in Februar I was in Toronto. But March was just insane with Quebec City, Calgary, Ottawa and Vancouver all in the same month.  One show left to do and that is Edmonton from the 18th to the 21st of April. So if you are from the area come pass by and say Hi!

Publishing


In other news, I have been published twice this year so far as most of you have noticed :D
First was in Ellements Magazine:
 photo 2686fe19-e07b-41bf-8cb5-ca3ba30bfd9b_zpsf4133306.jpg  photo da8f4764-68e2-4a35-bd6c-b0b52466500f_zps6877203e.jpg

And the second one was featured in Maxim Mexico thanks to my awesome buddy :iconsideshowsito:
 photo bf40a586-4d47-441b-bda8-982c810ffa21_zps8639f146.jpg

So the year is starting out great but I still am not satisfied in he slightest. I am hoping for at least 3 more publications this year! (one might be coming quite soon)


Travelling Dates:


May 2013 - Toronto
June 2013 - NYC
September - California (San Francisco - Los Angeles - Oceanside)


Retouching



I have also found a new passion that I am starting to explore.
I absolutely love retouching, and I personally find myself to be decent for a beginner considering all the very terrible self proclaimed retouchers out there.
I am definitely still an amateur, but I have started accepting a few paid assignments.
If you are interested take a look at my work:
laurelleretouch.deviantart.com… Deviant Art Account
www.modelmayhem.com/laurellere… Modelmayhem Account (lots more)

Retiring Nudes



Due to all the negativity towards my censoring + the sharing of my images without permission,
I am no longer posting any 18+ shots of me on DA.
Sorry for those who still appreciated my censored work but I am just tired of all of it.
I am pretty much officially retiring my nude work.
I might still post some implied work but no more censored nor 18+ online.
I realize I might be losing quite a few followers from this but if the only reason why you are watching me is to see my tits,
I highly recommend you quit following me.

My Name



Many of you know my real name isn't MissLaurelle/Laurelle.
I would highly appreciate it if you however did not address me by my real name.
Nor refer any images or fan art to my real name.
Thank you

------------------
I believe those are all the matters I wished to address :)
Once again guys, thanks for all the support!

Congratulations on all your success. you are a beautiful young woman and you do seem to work hard for what you have earned.
I have enoyed all you have offered us of your work. I would dearly love to compare notes with you on the Nissans and others.
I am curious, how did a Canadian wind up in Maxim Mexico?

for my 2 cents i think the censoring is mostly misapplied. I did not see one the undressed picture that was at all erotic or in any way in need of a response of shame. I do like the captioned shots. I thought they are perfectly in tune with your modelling in those. The lingerie shots are much more evocative of a stray erotic thought or two. that was the point of taking them, I would imagine.

As to comments, I used to be an artist. painting and scuplting were my lines for 30 years. However, I could never escape taking the praise as well as the criticism personally and eventually i walked away from all of my art. Too much of an emotional rollercoaster.
I have noticed that the successful artists dont care about the comments, good or bad. what they do they do for themselves. if others like what they have created so much the better for everyone. I could never make it to that level. I would advise you to do as they do and ignore all the comment. dont let others shape your behavior and personality. Just enjoy what you have to give.
Best of luck in all your endeavors.
be well.
Cali

thanks for the advice and compliments!
doesn't matter where you are from you can get published almost anywhere.
And I still don't find myself anywhere near sucessful enough to ignore my fans
I'm thankful for them and they have helped towards my success the least I can do is give back a few thanks.
As for the ones with negativity well I sometimes have fun answering back but most of the time I let them pass

As I wrote in another post, i prefer to praise your work as a model for lingerie and fashion clothes. Of tits and asses, around the web, there are too many! Naked female bodies sold off for nothing. Continue your career as a model in a manner elegant, with style and good taste.
You are beautiful, i appreciate your work and your beauty as it is, without showing her private parts!
In Italian:
Non ho capito se sei al 100% Italiana, ma se lo sei anche solo per il 10%, sei oggetto di vanto per il nostro misero stato.

a greeting from a dear fan

Honestly you were one of the first people I started watching when I joined DeviantArt, I did not see the nudes and didnt care to. You are one of the most gorgeous models I have seen. Keep doing what makes you you and nothing else matters.

Awwwe no boobies. This sucks. But I'll support whatever makes you happy.

Anyhow, how did you get into the paid retouching business and how do you determine how much to charge?

Well it's sort of part of the industry and I was tired of not being satisfied with the photographers retouch jobs so I learned to do it myself and loved it!
I don't charge much as I am still pretty new to it.

Usually around 5-10$ per image.

NO TITS??!??!1?!/?!?1/?!??!/

lol! tevs, as long as i get to see your beautiful face and ridiculously gorgeous eyes, i don't care. i've seen the other stuff, and while it's very well done, i prefer everything done by misslaurelle.

the only way i would stop watching you is if i got married and my wife couldn't handle your beauty in front of me regularly.

or... maybe we'll fall in love and you'll be my wife. win win!

congrats, keep it up!

OMG, really, thats terrible,
Im happy your doing your modeling, if thats your passion and its what you enjoy to do then screw what people say. My girlfriend made me make a choice, either my art like i do now and become an artist or live in a place that does nothing and be with her so I made my choice based on what i love most and know the most which was my art. I have never been so happy! If your choice is to retire nudes because of people looking at you for your tits then ignore them. I know this may sound bad, but 99% of all guys that watch you most likely watch you for the nudes! I would bet money on it. Someone who posts nudes of themselves is most likey going to get attention where as someone like me is not. Do not let something destroy a passion on which you created to know more of yourself with! I love all your work. I have a photography folder and theres nudes in them but when I look at the female body and photograph i dont see tits and ass, i see beauty, why was it taken this way, whats the story in the expression, pose, why is it this color. That my lady is true art and If i met you in person I would say thank you for being a great photograph model and that your beautiful, expressive! Congrats :) I tip my head to you :)

P.S sorry if i made you read a lot :)

I'm mostly stopping nudes cause people are spreading them all over the internet using my real name.
I can't control it anymore.

why did you use your real name in the first place? I use my real name and people know me and they spread my images all over but they link me to my page. Do they do that for you?
Reply
:iconmisslaurelle:
MissLaurelle Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Professional Artist
Everywhere but my facebook page is my model name Laurelle or MissLaurelle.
But because my fan page is older it's my real name and I am not able to change it.

So people will write Laura Baduria a.k.a MissLaurelle
on the 18+ images

hmm, why not use a logo? I think that logos is better then a name, people will use that more then a name these days. Do you have one?

Because the photographer owns the images not me, therefore I cannot put a logo on it.

This has been a successful and very busy start of the year! I'm very happy for you. I hope the rest of the year continues like this. :nod:
On the other hand, I'm sorry to hear that you'll retiring some of your photos. It's always a shame to know that someone has to remove their work as in your case or have to use a huge and obtrusive watermark due to the art theft (like some digital artists I know). However, I understand that as long as there are people who have no respect for the work of others, one's forced to carry out such measures.. :(

you're always on the move so i never ask whats up, cause i know you're busy.
And i find very cool that now you know every inch of a nissan. Speaking of i do often question why they dropped the first engine when they released the new body gt-r for the current one, made no sense to me...

shame to hear about the lack of respect towards your work, and unauthorized distribution of it, some people just lack creativity or class, c'est la vie

now that I have a week off, hell yes I need my dose of video games.

The GT-R is basically a computer now, made to have the fastest departure from 0-60miles possible (2.7 secs)
You barely have to do anything.

It's great that you're not posting nudes anymore. At least they'll focus more on your smile than your tits. What makes an artist, like everyone on dA, including you, is not the many pictures or deviations people put online, but the time and effort that we put in all of our work that counts. And if you lose a few followers it's fine, at least you know that there's a few or many people that are not perverts. This is all I have to say, honestly. Also good job on your work as a product ambassador.

Reply

MissLaurelle Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Professional Artist
They are only truly supposed to be visible on one other website.
But people have gotten a hold on those images and have uploaded them to many other sites without my permission.
Many forums. I used to ask for the shots to be take down but I just gave up asking
