My lovely model in this piece has perhaps the smallest waistline that I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. The design itself was inspired as an extension of her amazing figure. All shadows in this image are painted and are not a result of lighting. Also note that because I absolutely love color, I’ve included multiple colors in some less obvious places.
