Nature vs Nurture


An ancient debate. Nature vs nurture. Which influences behavior?

Modern consensus agrees on a median between the two - rarely is behavior derived solely from biological or environmental factors.

It's hard to quantify nature/nurture's influence (e.g. 40% bio, 60% enviro factor for aggression) because each individual is unique. But if the possibility arises to find these formulas, it would have great implications on shaping behavior!

this really drew my eyes to it the colors are wonderful together and i think in my mind this fits good because everybody deserves someone who will help them grow and show their true colors

i wish i had a girl ...

absolutely stunning drawing!

the details, such as the human bodies/the anatomy/their poses/their faces+their skin texture, are amazing.
everything in this drawing is so realistic, that you could say that this is a recoloured photo, with new, more cheerful/lively colours drawn on top of it.
its that good!

i like how the young man ''nurture''(?), hugs the seemingly distant lady, which is ''ms nature''.
(i assume that the man is nurture, due to the family taking care of the child, shown in his crown, on the top of his head, while the woman has roses, and a pair of DNA double helix elements on top of her head, thus, making her ''the power of nature'', in this analogy.

their pose, and their embrace looks beautiful, and VERY natural/realistic, thus making this a beautiful picture, with a very strong message inside.

i guess, when it comes to the human nature (on our personality), its mostly nature+a (smaller) part of nurture that does the work.
i guess we have alot of things to learn, but still: people are a mystery, and they always are worth exploring.

overall, this is a GREAT, realistic+beautiful painting, and i would love to see more pics like this from you in the future... you are a very good artist, so keep up the good work!

PS: last but not least, i have to say it: the young couple's faces, vaguely remind me of ''king tommen'' and of ''queen daenerys'', from G.O.T. (a popular TV fantasy series).
its a beautiful (even if slight) resemblance, and i like it alot!
