You started with an absolutely gorgeously beautiful model and built around that beauty. Your use of lighting gives the picture an other-worldly quality, which paired with the title of "Chaste Portrait" reminds me of sacred art portraits of saints (like the kind one would find used for holy cards). She appears to be naked, or at least topless. Is the lack of nudity even though she's nude the reason this is a chaste portrait? Or is the title supposed to make me think the opposite of the picture's reality? To sum it up, the title is very effective at making me think. You've done a great job, both visually and thematically.

I am really quite pleased with the lack of sharp contrasts between the skin tones and the background. Very pretty, aptly named, well done.

The models eyes are wide and large and lend well to the title theme. The bare shoulders hint at an unrecognized sexuality while still holding the the innocent and chaste theme.

The blue of the eyes is a very nice focal point in the face and is a nice contrast to the overall muted look.

The model herself is quite pretty and projects the title theme really well in her expression.

I am very, very impressed with this deviation.

I like this one more than the full body shot. I think the lightning works better here. Always nice to look at beautiful people. Thank you for sharing your works.

I'm not sure why you're using the word "chaste" for these pictures. A person that is chaste abstains from sex and/or only has sex with their partner. It relates to sexual activity, not nudity and nudity isn't equivalent to sex. So... I'm not sure what you're trying to say with this.

I guess I know, instead. It's the portrait itself suggesting chastity, in the sense of innocency. The expression of the model, her eye gaze suggest curiosity instead of aggressive passion (as most nude portraits suggest indeed in deviantart). The innocent curiosity of an underage girl, fascinated by the novelty of posing nude. Or just revealing herself to someone.

No... On other cases he calls it a "chaste" Version when he crops the image to not show her chest. It's about the nudity, not perceived "innocence."
