Art ratings?

A question - particularly for my fellow artists, but I'm interested to hear everybody's opinion.

The ratings that are gernerally ascribed to fanfiction - G through to NC17 - do you think the same standards should apply to art? Or should they be higher because it is a visual medium?

I ask because the picture in my icon - the full version of which you can see here - Passionate Ron/Hermione, was just labelled NC17 in a forum and, I'm sorry, but I would never have classed that pic NC17. Yes, it's suggestive, but that's it. There is no cock to be seen, no sexual act in progress, not even a breast.

Personally, I'd have rated it M (15+), just to be on the safe side. Am I too liberal? I mean, my kids have all seen this, and they range in age from 15 down to just-turned-9. They weren't horrified or traumatised by it. And, to counterpoint, none of them have seen the 'quickie' slash drawing I did for shocolate the other day, because I know that would squick them, and that one I do regard as NC17.

So what's the consensus? Would you rate this painting NC17?

And, out of interest, what would you rate this one while we're at it?

Soo...first thnigs first!

Hmm...the "Passion" Ron/Hermione pic (you what I mean)... I think R is just fine for it!!! I mean, you see nearly nothing...just passion and love I mean...I've always wondered how some sites rate their pics.

The 2Quicky" is NC-17 and not becouse it's two guys (likes Harry/Draco *licks lips*) but becouse of what guys "have" :P

Anyway, I for my part would say the pic with the baby...ermm...PG? I mean...oh yes, you see boobs, and so what? I see them everyday walking through the city when some mother is feeding her baby!! This breasts have nothing to do with ...erm...the-making-love-process, they're just something a women must have!



btw: I started reading NC-17 when I was 15, now I'm 18, and I don't think I died, went crazy, or whatever...
