Questionable Artwork (Non-idolatrous)
My question doesn't have to do with idol worship, but it does have to do with artwork.

Is it forbidden to paint or draw the nude figure with sexual organs showing, even if it is done in a non-pornographic manner? For instance, if I were to paint Adam and Chava in the garden before they ate of the Tree, would I still be required to place branches or leaves over certain areas of the body, even if the painting itself is innocent in nature?

Or another example would be if I were taking an art class, and a specific project is to paint/draw the nude figure. Is this forbidden?

I ask this because I am an artist with some ideas in mind for paintings... I also plan on going to art school in the near future, and I know nude study is required.
