Edit: Ok now I have corrected some anatomical mistakes. This image is not a copy of any classical painting. I got the idea of the fur from Delphin Enjolras - La Sieste, but as you can see everything is different.

(Not that I am a real artist of course! but still)
For once, this is not an odalisque but a modern woman, haughty and self sufficient, relaxing in her 17th century villa before she goes on to her job as lawyer or brain surgeon. :)

Very brave of you, Ralph, to tackle something this difficult. It's actually a very good beginning for such a complex scene. The lighting, textures and draped cloth are quite impressive. I'm guessing you're posing her based on a painting, which is always problematic (ask any live art model). Look forward to seeing this evolve.
