UNCENSORED VERSION: kmyechan.tumblr.com/post/78434…
[EDIT 6 March 2014]
Regarding the many comments about the blurring/censoring.
I agree that this artworks is not exactly sexual and less explicit by a long shot than many pictures uploaded on DA, whether they are fall under the "mature content" policies or not. I do not make the nudity policy on DA - the uncensored version would have to be tagged as mature content, regardless of your or my feelings about it.
I prefer to keep my DA gallery suitable and accessible to all publics, and let people decide from the censored preview whether they wish to see the full picture or not.
I hope this clears it up.
A personal variation on Schiele’s “Mother and Child 2”.
For the group show “My Master and I”, at Galerie Curiosités. The original is available on the gallery’s website : www.curiosites-galerie.com/con…

Did you decided to put the two in front of a ... gnarled tree?
For the censored part please read the description. I know about the mature content filter, thanks.
I try to keep my DA gallery viewable to all (mature content filters mean pictures cannot be seen by many). People can then decide from the preview whether they want to see the uncensored version or not.
But yeah, I agree that plenty of pictures here are bordering on porn (in my appreciation) and yet pass the "not mature content" criteria, while other pictures that are plainly not porn get tagged as mature. It's just that the site is too big to moderate on a case-by-case basis, they have to define some kind of criteria... which are bound to be flawed.
Which takes us back to the reason why I use censored images here, so that people can see it's nude but not really mature, without flagging as mature content.
I could tell this was a variation of a Schiele even from the small thumbnail. He used to be one of my favorite artists until I discovered fashion illustration with the works of Rene Gruau.
I think you captured his grotesque line work while giving it your own style.
I just try to keep my DA gallery viewable by all, to be honest. Then people can decide from the preview if they think it's tasteful and want to see the uncensored version or not.
Well the mods can't really change the rules on mature content based on their appreciation of whether a particular piece is art or porn - I have had pictures flagged that were a lot less explicit than this one... I prefer to upload a censored version suitable to all audiences these days, and people can decide if they wish to see the uncensored version or not.
