(Contains: nudity)
Neal Caffery with the bare essentials.

This is the first in a series of paintings that I'm planing on doing taking known characters and stripping them down. Nothing fully nude, but certainly more skin than usually seen.

I chose Caffery to do first because his character practically lends itself to this. Let's face it, Caffery is always looking for an excuse to lounge around without his shirt on (clearly White Collar is a show for the ladies, I'm a little alarmed by how fond my husband is of the show...). When he's not officially topless he is wearing suits so closely tailored that you can count his femoral pulse.

{Begin shameless self promotion}

On an unrelated note I have started a White Collar fic 'The Nightingale': [link]

{End shameless self promotion}

If you are interested in joining me with this theme just title it Stripped Down: 'Character Name' and send me a link. You'll get a feature in my journal!

Works in Progress can be found in my 'scraps'.

Others in the series:

Tony Stark



Now then time for credits:
Thanks to :iconkeepwaiting: for the skin texture brush.

Thanks to :iconnavate: for the skin color chart for help picking colors.

Thanks to Pose Maniacs dot com for some general references of awesomeness.

Thanks to my watchers for putting up with my WIPs spaming their inbox.

And of course thanks to Matt Bomer for being such a good sport about this even if he has no idea. :giggle: This is what one gets for strutting around the USA Network. Have your lawyers contact my lawyers they can have lunch together (Disclaimer: my lawyers are actual sharks, they work for cheap and get *great* results) (Full Disclosure: they do not have laser beams attached to their heads but my R&D department is working on it).

I'll be sending my hospital bill to you. It is your fault entirely that I forgot how to breathe.

I believe there is a Class Action Lawsuit against me that you can join for this exact side effect. :giggle:
