Honestly I usually find 'artistic nude' to be mostly 'nude' with little 'art' - just people posing in little or no clothes for attention.

However that said I am the first in line to admit that sometimes I get proven wrong, and well done to you for that!

The piece is well done, much is shown while a lot is hidden in a very clever manner; it takes little talent to take a picture of breasts and upload it however to take a picture of a naked woman and make it not only artistic, but classy as well, now that is impressive.

Her pose is an incredibly strange amalgamation of comfort (her position), pain (her elbows), though (the hand on the chin), desolation (the environment) and, strangely, work (the office chair).

I believe that people who can look past her nudity and not simply sit their open mouthed will be able to get a cacophony of messages out of this image.

There's something indescribably exquisite about this photo. Your expression is some mix of mystical and flirty and it drives me mad in a great way. The lines created by your arcing back and then the reverse your legs create is beautiful. Even your toes are interestingly positioned. You look at ease, almost floating, and yet I'm sure that it must have been a hard pose to hold; that fact really is a testament to your talent as a model. I love how your hair falls across your face, another perfect line, and how it falls gently to your elbows. It's all very connected and well done and just. Great. Love it, as usual!

I'm sorry, yes, I did.  However, the stool would have been for MY bum. Nothing too fun, just $$ and there were no models involved. :(

yoga helps create miracles in the most unlikely spaces and places... you look as if you could "levitate" there for hours. somehow calling this "beautifully posed" seems highly inadequate for its reality. :rose:

I have a technical question: when modeling nude in such unsanitary environments, do you take precautions?  For instance, using a sanitary wipe on that old chair before posing on it? 
Reply
:iconmelannc:
melannc Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2014  Professional Artist
Not really, I mostly just get filthy and hope for the best.  There's not actually that much you can "catch" that would be truly harmful, so I don't worry about it too much, it would really slow down the shoot.
I stay up to date on my tetanus shot, I don't touch my eyes or face when I'm in these locations, I bring hand sanitizer for use between different locations, and I pay attention to each and every step I take to try and avoid sharp objects.
Despite being careful, I've been cut by glass/metal, had bird poop, ashes, and all manner of dirt in my hair etc.  Not knowing what to expect is kinda part of the fun, and a hot shower after feels sooooo good.  ;)

Of the recent crop of offerings, this one has to be my favorite.  Sorry about all the bumps and bruises, but if it matters, I'd say it was worth the effort.  On the other hand, I hope you took a scalding hot shower when you were done.  

Onward, though.  What appeals to me is the balance between the strain in your body and the calm of your face.  And, as always, that luscious mane of hair you were blessed with plays its role.  
Kudos to the photog as well.

Nice work, kid.
