Ermine Odalisque by RJBartrop Ermine Odalisque by RJBartrop
Who'd have thought a naked ermine would require rendering so much fabric? Commission inspired by Ingres' Reclining Odalisque.

Stunning. The shading on fur and fabric are almost beyond belief.

But seriously, how many of your followers would even know who would know -- or care, for that matter -- who Ingres was (one of the most outstanding practitioners of Neoclassicism of his time -- even if he never received the honors he was due in his lifetime) or recognize an hommage to a painting nearly 200 years old? Actually, I might be quite surprised; some of the folks on DA are well educated. Considering that one long-standing criticism of Ingres' Grande Odalisque was that her back was inhumanly long (some have said by as many as five vertebrae), the choice of an Ermine is quite interesting -- since they have such long backs, anyway. Or was that your intent?

For those still scratching their heads, an odalisque is a female slave to a Turkish Harem.

P.S. Yes, I sat through two Fine Arts History courses. I needed the professor from the first session to sign off that I had completed the course, but, well, the building I registered in was named after him, so I got stuck. Then I saw the professor for the second course. She could pose nude for me, anytime!

FINALLY! An artistic nude that's artistic!
You did a great job on the fur's silky texture. I love her face.
