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

Anyway.
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

This is gorgeous. Quick question- the lineart is really smooth and crisp in this piece, and others I've seen in your gallery. Do you use photoshop's pen tool for your inking?

I use Manga Studio to draw/ink/color my works. There are a variety of pens in the program based off actual drawing pens used by mangaka. The one I usually go with is the School pen.

D: I guess the only thing I can think of as far as needing something ... is the bars of the cage seem kinda unfinished.

Now I want to draw a nekkid person just to see if I will encounter the same thing. xD

Cool beans.

I used a texture on the bars (because when I shaded them it looked too distracting to me) but it's hard to see at this size. Maybe I should try increasing the opacity.

She's completely nude, even if you can't see anything it implies. Other than that I wouldn't worry about it. She looks great~

Oh yes, I know but usually you have to click buttons. I just uploaded the file and right away they labeled it for me. lol I wonder if their programing looks for skin tones?
Thanks! :heart:

Hmm, maybe. There are so many underage though, I am honestly not surprised.
You're welcome, does this mean we'll be getting more story stuff soon?

D: I hope! I just got a new writing program that's helping me organize thins better. I'm so far behind. Seems like every time I get in the swing of things something crazy and life interrupting happens.@_@

D: It's a horrible problem. Especially since I seem to be and all in or nothing sort of person when I'm writing. If I can't dedicate my full attention to it, nothing gets done.
