Not sure where to put this one... artistic nude or self-portrait...
it is both. The thing on my head is a self made "Hat" made of cardboard. I'm planning to make a whole set of "clothes" with it (not to wear in public obviously) ;)

Excellent composition and I love the lighting and the color.To top it off, Portrait with cardboard hat by ~Liko is a self-portrait!" - and I just want to add: Oh my!, what a self-portrait!!! *faint* ( Suggested by phydeau and Featured by Helewidis )

Nice hat. Looks like one of the turbans that Ingres used.

that was a brainwave ... I love the way it plays against the pose, which is sort of formal but also not - it has a beguiling hint of shyness. Brilliant.

Simplicity. Uncluttered. Clear. Clean. And a Keeper.

This image would hang on a wall most anywhere and not become tiresome. The background and the eyes compliment each other. Was this deliberate?

The model's 'S'-curve is on a slight diagonal bringing a viewer's eyes upwards to the face.

Originality in use of the cardboard "hat" is a nice touch. It is neither too large nor too small. Any change in size or shape would take away from the image.

Arms coming across the chest brings a hint of child-like protective modesty.

Lighting is very, very good. Not washed out, nor understated.

great - the combination of the colours on one hand and on the other hand the combinations of the lines/figures - go on creating your art (in hats and in presenting).
