The pond near the linden tree

People from the village had only heard of the Swan Prince.

Yep. Nudity.

I just can't get the image out of my head.

I'm not sure what or why.. but certain words and sounds makes this picture appear in my head.

it's so hard to find people who will artfully portray the male form as much as females are seen nude and otherworldly. i really enjoy this piece, especially for that fact. i feel like the male form is too comically spoken of, and that artists/photographers/cinematographers/etc are too afraid of making males a sort of beauty in their own right. lovely work indeed!

Thank you! It's pretty easy to forget that on you don't consume that much mainstream media, but you're right. I'll keep trying and do my part for the naked men of the world. :D

I like a lot of you works.. but this one... I really love! The way the light fall on the guy maybe. Or how the swan on the right is between his leg and arm. Also how the guy in green seems not able to move.
This image will haunt me in my dreams O.O

Ah meu Deus meu Deus meu Deus :heart:
Seus trabalhos são simplesmente lindos! :love:

Mas eu tenho que dizer que esse é o meu favorito! Adoraria ver mais a respeito dessa história
O príncipe tem um ar de mistério que me encanta apesar de ele parecer intimidador
Mas já que você disse que as histórias são sobre amor, acho que eu ficaria feliz de estar no lugar do homem de verde :iconfufuplz:

Só de curiosidade: o que seriam essas marcas azuis nos braços dele? Tem algum significado?

Continue com o bom trabalho, Ricardo! :)

Kyendo Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2011  Professional
Ahah, adorei este comentário. :') As marcas azuis não têm nenhum significado particular (as linhas são supostamente aquele "exoesqueleto" que os pássaros têm nas patas), simplesmente achei que o contraste ficava bem e no caminho até dava um ar mais mágico à coisa.

Obrigado, Nanda. :)

Thank you! I must admit I am constantly amazed on how this is being received. Half of the feedback I get is on how "classic" and "majestic" it looks, the other half reblogs this on porn blogs. It's quite fun, specially because everyone seems to like it anyway. :D
