Should I be frightened that DA automatically tagged this for moderate nudity?

I've been working on this for awhile. Actually, to be fair, I spent like 3 days drawing/inking it on and off, and then I let it sit for half a month because I needed to get away from it. I feel like I managed to fix a lot of mistakes by taking the time off, but I still feel like it needs something more. I just can't decide what. But my husband wanted me to finish it for his birthday so here it is.

It was really interesting to draw all these geometric type objects freehand. D: They are unforgiving. I think I've satisfied my need to draw cages for some time. And possibly roses for that matter as well...

As for the background, if any of you ever read the original draft of AE you might remember that there's a white room in the beginning of the story. It becomes a rather important location later on in the story, so I wanted to add it to this image...only issue with that I guess is how do you draw what is essentially white space without looking like you're just being lazy! D:
Probably didn't come off as well as I'd hoped...I may change it later.

EDIT: I realize that the glow effect got really chunky and unnatural looking around the cage and stuff. I think it happened when I resized the image. I took off the glow for now. I'll fix it later.

Wow, this is gorgeous. The designs at the top of the cage are beautiful. I love the blue roses, I think they're my favorite part. The white background really works for this too.

Thanks! I thought blue would be a good color. My husband says they should have been red.

Well red would have been beautiful, but red roses are everywhere so it's nice to see them in different colors :)

Yeah. At first I wanted a blue green to sort of contrast the butterflies and Kali's hair, but then they looked like tiny cabbages to me. lol
