Thanks for replying :D Have a look at the original that I was inspired by [link](1825-1905)_-_The_Birth_of_Venus_(1879).jpg and Botticelli's even more famous [link] (Copy and paste the web site address) or just Google them. I used to be an art teacher and I'm guessing you are young. Classical art is full of nudity, if it's that which is offending you. I don't think it's pornography. My image is not intended to create a sexual response but rather an appreciation of beauty. I guess it's all down to culture and how we are brought up but I do hope that you will think about it a little. If you were to look around the National Gallery or Tate Gallery in London or many other galleries around the world you will find them full of naked women, I really don't think it's fair to think the Great Master's work is inappropriate. :hug:
