A lot of umm'ing and ahh'ing between the colour version and this. I still like them both, the colour one might end up in scraps later...

So this is Elli again, looking a bit more babyish here yes?

I must say I was quite shocked by some notes and comments to the earlier pictures about how children shouldn't be seen naked because it might encourage pedophiles etc. I can't quite comprehend how someone even entertained such thoughts looking at those pictures that were in no shape or form pornographic. I am not responsible for anyone's sick mind. To me, children are innocent and pure and there's nothing seedy about babies being naked whatsoever. Child pornography is a whole other issue and I felt quite pissed off about what was implied of my pictures.

And when it comes to these particular kids, yeah they are pretty innocent, their mum doesn't even allow TV in the house. ;)

I love this picture. I had it saved in my huge file of reference from forever ago and had to search through DA to figure out whose it was!

I am starting up digital painting and used this as a reference for my latest picture : ) Thanks!

Pedophiles will be pedophiles regardless of whether there are nude photos of them.

What does bother me is children who are dolled up in makeup and fake boobs for beauty pageants. I don't think it riles up the pedophiles, it's just fucking wrong.

On topic though, this image is beautiful and the expression is so full of life.
