Please tell me your thoughts about this one:

You are a revolutionary. You have proven that aging is nothing to fear. Being a teenager, I have wondered what I will look like when I am older and if it would be the end of the world if I didn't look 20 my whole life. Your portfolio exemplifies that it is not our youthful bodies that make us beautiful, it is the spirit from within, and with that spirit women can still model for inspiring art when they are older without worrying about looking "hot" or "sexy". Thank you for doing realistic art and showing young women that looking thin, young, and airbrushed is not what truly matters. You are beautiful, but not because of makeup and photoshop, you are beautiful because of your kind and wise heart that shows through in your pictures.

Thank you so much for the kind remarks smile

I think that everyone is beautiful and there is also nothing wrong with reality. No one will look 20 forever and it isn't the end of the world, I know women who are considerably older than I am who still regularly model in the nude for artists and classes.

You are a spectacular human being. Your portfolio includes photos of all different kinds of body types. You have proven that every body type is just as worthy and beautiful. Some women feel demeaned when they see nude pictures of female models on MM because they are portrayed in an objectifying manner. You do not do this at all, your portfolio celebrates the different types of beauty, and does so in a tasteful and empowering manner. Your photos are top notch.

Thank you! I'm very flattered and really appreciate the fact that you seem to "get it" about my work. I'd much rather celebrate the female form than objectify it. I've worked with women who posed nude for the very first time and who, after the shoot, used words like liberated, empowered, and healed to describe the experience.

I've read some of your other comments and I have to compliment you on the amazing insight and maturity that you show for one so young. You're an old soul.

Namaste

Hello Elise.

I'm a newbie to MM and I am working to improve my retouching skills. Would you mind critiquing an image I just retouched for one of the contest forums?

Thank you,
