Amazing body, excellent effects of illumination, Love the way you lay back, looks really artistic the whole picture is amazing, i think the concept is very abstract and very easy to digest, excellent pose and excellent shot.

You got an exellent body, you should keep doing this photos, the way is edited got an air of mistery around it, very intriging, i feel that you were aiming for it, your hair is also very beautiful and all together gives sensuality to the picture making it more beautiful also, i would personally recomend you to make frontal pses but with intrigue and you know covering a little, let the imagination flote, other than that, perfect.
What do you think?

I am deeply moved by this pose... and by the form... and by the excellent display of gracefulness of the human physique. This is absolutely classical in its execution and it feels reminiscent of the Renaissance era in terms of artistic integrity. You are absolutely breathtaking in this picture. It is not sexual in any way, but it's brutally honest. The lighting is also well done and really illuminates your body in flattering ways, such as the defining lines of your musculature. This piece is so wonderful it almost doesn't seem real. Amazing work.

Again... I am moved. Beautiful capture.

A Long time ago I contacted you about other images. I ended up painting one in 2012 and one last year in 2015. I had your images printed and saved for a long time but lost you on deviantart. I have finished them and would like to share them with you now that I have found you again!

No, this was taken before I ever discovered his work, and I believe this image existed before he even started modeling/doing self portraits.
