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...

I love it, I hope the puritans avert their eyes and is that a fairy in Landknecht-ish outfit to the left? In any case I'm deeply envious of how much detail you manage in such a small scale. Will we be allowed to see the final result as well?

Indeed he is. Yes, I think I may be sharing some sections of the finished piece. Perhaps that might encourage those interested to show their support by seeking out the published thing itself. :D

It's funny and a little sad (very sad, actually) that someone would think of reporting something like the Kinnaree, and dA agrees with it, whilst certain things one cannot unsee are apparently perfectly safe. I wonder who goes around waving 'mature content' signs in front of Ingres' Valpincon Bather, for instance, or indeed the traditional paintings of kinnaree that are found in temples and palaces in Thailand.

With mature content... I've come to the conclusion that it's just a weird american thing. They seem to think out data protection laws are weird, we think their body complexions are weird. They seem not to mind a naked soul, we do not mind a naked body.
Just as it is, priorities.

"Hopefully nobody of puritanical zeal will feel persuaded to report this for mature content as they did with my Kinnaree."

I think the deciding factor would be whether one can clearly see nipples or not. Maybe you should put highly ornamented pasties on your future Kinnarees ;-)

What lovely little faces!
I really do appreciate such a small scale work, because the art is as much about gesture as it is about precision. I've always admired oil painters' ability to do that, but I think I like it even better as it's drawn.

I was pretty sure it had to be smaller than 0.5, which is the smallest I've seen. Where can I get 0.3?

I have to admit, most of my curiosity was wanting to see how you handle paint on such a small scale. I have little, if any, affinity for paint and am always impressed by your control and wanted to see how you would handle their tiny little features.

I've seen Mughal paintings at the Met in NYC, and certainly their work is amazing. Such detail! I'm excited to see how your work comes along (I'm sure it will be spectacular).
