A beautifully pleasing picture...I like the way the rings look against her skin, her body.

Well done on the "fantasy illustration" style...it's really got the flavor of a Vallejo painting.

You must be as healthy as a lump of lard...here's an insight for you, there isn't meant to be an inch of fat between the ribs and the skin so if you raise your arms above your head & suck in your tummy and can't see the outline of your ribs then it's time to lay off the cheeseburgers

I really , really hope this is indeed your work that your posting on here, because I saw a belly dance CD online, with the exact same photo as the cover.

To be honest the implication that I may be posting work that isn't my own is mildly offensive. I've been on dA 8 years, have over a half dozen daily deviations and a large fan base, why would I want to put that at risk by posting other people's work?
Perhaps next time you suggest something like this you should take a look through that person's gallery and see if the other work there matches the style and quality of the piece you are questioning. This particular shot has sold on stock thousands of times so it's not surprising you've seen it somewhere before...people do make a living by selling their photography you realise...

I meant no offensive and yes people do make a living by selling their photography, but it's not something I've come across until recently. It took me by surprise and since I couldn't find who the artist was on the album cover, I felt it was best to just come right out and ask you. I'm not sure if there was a better way to go about it. I apologize.

It certainly does have a fantasy painting feel about it - I thought it was a traditional media work when I looked a tthe thumbnail. Well done.

waaaw ! so nice she is so beautiful ! ^^

but i have to tell you this please don't understand me wrong but ! -> ( harem means wemans ) and it is better if you call it ( Sultan harem ) or some thing like that !

Actually the word Harem technically means both the women in a Muslim household and the part of the house/palace in which they reside. It can also be used to describe a group of female animals accompanied by a single fertile male. In popular western culture 'Harem' is used mainly as a noun to describe a group of women belonging to a Sultan etc or as an adjective describing a particular woman (as in the latter scenario).

Obviously by your suggested title you got immediately and instinctively which use of the word harem I meant, which means as far as I'm concerned the title is good enough. I don't put much stock in titles anyways, a picture is about the picture, not the words above it...

Cheers

I absolutely love the posture of the model and the way you can see her tendons...very finely captured. I was wondering: might I use this as a reference for a bigger painting? It'd be the woman, surrounded by water from a waterfall.

Not bad, but she's very skinny.
Reply

blueblackhusky Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2010
Hm, honestly I think it's more because of how she is stretched out that you can see her ribs so well. I mean, to me, the arms look quite normal. Reminds me of myself - I tend to look skinny-ish, but it gets absolutely shocking when I stretch out, as if I was underfed my entire life :blush:

I can tell you're a thinker...

This lovely lady by the name of Jess has never worked as a "stripper" in her life. Oh and by the way there's a Y and an O in the word "you", it's an easy word, I'm sure you have at least the brain power to come closer to spelling it correctly.

Being as the line between porn and art is purely a subjective one you statements say everything about your own state of mind and nothing about the actual work. Also your obvious attempts at trolling make other, even louder statements about your life and level of adjustment. I pity you.
