This isn't smut. Smut is a quickly flashed picture of a girl in a compromising position with no time or thought put into the elements or composition of the photo.
Those of you saying it's smut do realize life art classics are sketching nude models right? It's important to have structural knowledge of the body before you can start adding in elements like clothes that cling some places and hang loose in other etc. etc. There's nothing wrong with the appreciation of the human form. The body is a work of art. The proportion the curves, and each is unique.
Open your mind a bit, maybe those of us who are complimenting the artist are the ones with cleaner more open minds. Instead of just looking at this and going "omg sex smut porn bad!" We're not thinking of that, just the lines and the the blends and the pattern. Truly the women is somewhat objectified in this picture because we only see the torso and some of the legs, but it's beautiful.
I love the way the symmetry of this was skewed to balance it out. Not only is her right hand coming up but her weight is shifted to the right as well making that hip and the top of that sock higher. My favorite part of the photo is how the three main elements are all brought together by having the same simple black and white checkered pattern, it unifies it. I love looking at it and being able to see how much detail was put into the tiny elements, down to the fact the fake nails (I think they are anyways) fit into the rest of the photo by being white squares. The corresponding line between the the two pieces of decoration, on on each wrist, with the line of the underwear. Also the tiny white heart on one hip and the jewelry heart on the bracelet mirrors the heart on her belly button ring and the tattoo on her wrist. I feel like so much thought was put into this. It seems to me even the positioning of the hands was carefully considered, both holding the string in the same way but viewed from opposing angles. How many other photos from the shoot was this selected from? It's excellent.
