I've tried to draw swans before. But I suck with their necks. (D*mn, long curved necks. -_-) I like the color of the body—the light hue of azure. (By the way, I congratulate you, because I thought Teenink was conservative and wouldn't allow drawings like this.) I love what it represents. Even though it is an animal to the uncultured eye. I think it tells a bigger story than it might seem. (I'm gonna get into my art-critque-posh-alter-ego.) To me, it's a grim view of society and s*x and women in this case. Society view women as s*x products available for anyone. The stance of the swan (forgive me for assuming here) is the stance of a pr*stitue. The swan is a beautiful animal in nature. Women are beautiful; but society views them as that simply. Beautiful creatures made to suffice the carnal desires of anyone seeking a quickie.—I love that you chose to label it as surreal. Surreal art is just amazing. It literally speaks for itself. As does all art. But I think surreal doesn't just entertain; it presents larger stories then ordinary art does.
