The title is just humour and has no connection with the piece itself.

A little sneaky peek at my current project. Those heads are about 5mm wide. If the Mughal miniaturists could do it, why couldn’t I? *Grits teeth* I’ve had to adjust the contrast quite strongly in this picture, but that coin is a penny (the same size as a U.S. cent).

The garments won't be quite so transparent when the piece is complete. Hopefully nobody of puritanical zeal will feel persuaded to report this for mature content as they did with my Kinnaree.

I do so worry about your eyes, but at the same time, how can I complain when you produce pieces like this? It's so delicate and ephemeral. I can't wait to see the project this is a part of.

Also, someone reported anything you did as mature content? :facepalm: People are idiots.

This is absolutely amazing! What kind of pencil do you use that you can get the lines that fine? This is really stunning, and I am simply in awe. Fantastic work!

I'm not sure it's a good idea to "camuflage" your pictures, as some suggested... I mean, come on, would one normally put "mature content" on Venus of Milo because you can see her nipples? It's wrong of those people who report - what harm can there possibly be of young people seeing such beautiful piece as your Kinnearee or Venus? I think it's abnormal to believe it "improper" and sounds Middle-Agey. Sometimes I'm really astonished about how puritanical people get nowadays.
It's a wonderful minature, Niroot! I love painting minatures myself, together with calligraphy - that I liked about Middle Ages! :)

I wasn't sure what you meant about those suggestions at first, as I couldn't recall any. But reading the comments again, I see one which I'm sure was meant to be sarcasm. ;)

This one isn't strictly a miniature, I'm afraid. It forms part of a larger piece of work. Hopefully this should become clear in time. ^_^

Oh, sorry then! I've just heard/seen too many stories about reporting beautiful artwork because - "OMG, her nipples are visible!" I can't understand people who are like that. I hope it won't happen to your works again.

The tiny size is just crazy! How are you going to colour it if it's so little? ;)

Apart from that, this is seriously beautiful, and it allows me to imagine that next project won't be prevalently about animals...
