This started out being about the feather, and ended up being about the shadow. I really love the pencil-sketch quality of it.
I got home from work with an hour and a half before dance class, the sun rapidly setting and no idea what the photo of the day was going to be. This project can be challenging, but when I get things like this, so worth it.
Yep, I'm very happy with this one.
Absolutely, totally, AWESOME!
Yes, there is a pencil-sketch quality, or pen & ink. Wonderful fine-line tracery.
ETA: Right. Been back several times to view this now. Making it official. ::hauls out file, takes it to serial number:: I am Officially Stealing This Idea. Though I promise I shall use a different background. *BG*

Heh. Hope she's not ticklish. *BEG*
Ah, you are on to my secret. *BG*
Hmm, would you care to be added to a filter? I am aware that not all of my subject matter suits everyone, so some is filtered.
Yeah, do that. Do you use cuts, or will I have to put you on my NSFW list?
When I post the figure studies, besides filtering to the art group I also use cuts. I don't think that any of my work transgresses into p0rn, but one blokes art is another blokes evil. The cut text usually provides the caution. One recent entry didn't alert in the cut text, I included bold text about making ones' own choice about viewing in work/public places.
So the succinct message is, Notification Is Provided, Images Are Cut.
I'll often use cuts for photos in general, even if blogging them off of Flickr by editing later, as you do. In part, this is because I live with that slow dial-up connection. In part, because others may as well. Always, if the image is large. Though some of these non-figure studies do slip through without a cut. They usually aren't as eyebrow-raising either.
It's just that the question of the distinction between pr0n and art is really not one that I want to get into with IT and HR with respect to what's on my monitor, so I'd prefer to err on the conservative side. Your policy sounds fine and I look forward to seing your work - at home. :)
...really not one that I want to get into with IT and HR ...
Indeed. Which is the reason that, while I will use my own photographs to be my 'wallpaper' on the Hospital monitor, one will not see those photographs as said wallpaper. *G*
And you should be able to see the work now.
