"Beautiful," by Josh Wilcoxon
Considering that I just ripped of our mutual friend Joe for his shot of the badlands, it seems appropriate to give a visual shout-out to the portraiture of friend and fellow South Dakotan Josh Wilcoxon
From the artist's comments:
Another one of my great models showing us her curves. What I love most about this picture is that the light I used perfectly bounces where I wanted it too. I have to say that she had about the best skin that I have ever shot. Why did I leave the seams colored on the panties and corsett??? Its just wrapping people...I just wanted the mind to follow the lines..it also looks great in just black and white...but I have a thing for color in most of my black and white shots...I know it can be overused...but if you use it right in most contexts...it really adds...thanks for viewing
A modified version of this portrait is found at the home page of Josh's studio
Dan, I hate to break this to you, but those are not the South Dakota badlands. This, from someone who has always considered the badlands his favorite place on earth, done many crappy oil paintings of them after studying the different hues of color, and studied the geologic formations extensively in college (Geological Engineer from S.D. Tech). The colors are too red, and the vegetation is wrong. It looks like Utah, maybe Wyoming or Arizona. I'm very sure it's not the S.D. badlands.

If I would have read even trivially closer, I would have indeed seen they are from Arizona.
Still, at least they mix well with the icon...
