This is truly an enticing vision, involuntarily raising the pulse (and something else as well). Particularly nice job on the warm tones of the background, and the realistic flesh tones and shadowing of the characters.
Caregan, I "love what you've done with the place" - with the "place" being the stereotypical richly-uphostered, well-stocked mansion library full of rare leather-bound tomes, to which the smoking-jacketed men would retire after dinner to consume expensive cigars and snifters of aged brandy while holding court on all of the various and sundry issues of the day ...
... but your modern kinky take has the dull fuddy-duddy blowhards replaced by two smoking-hot women in a situation that would have made those plain vanilla Victorian/Edwardian/Whateverian gentlemens' florid faces blush to the very limit of their rapidly receding hairlines.
This pic fairly screams for what Hollywood screenwriters would call a backstory, but you wisely elect not to provide one, leaving it up to the viewers' most sordid imaginations. The brief description ("Never accept a dinner invitation from the mistress unless you are very sure of what you are getting yourself into") seems to imply that the blonde gal's situation is not voluntary on her part, so how was she so thoroughly subdued?
She looks rather fit to have been subdued one-on-one, unless the mistress is a mixed martial arts steel cage champion. Failing that, did the mistress drug her, blackmail her, or did the mistress receive help from additional (now dismissed) servants? Inquiring minds want to know!
It is very hard to get a read on the mistress' mood by reading her expression - which probably makes the situation all the scarier for the poor blonde hottie. The mistress' face gives absolutely nothing away - it is neither cruel nor kind, engaging nor dismissive, empathetic nor contemptuous. It is the Mona Lisa without the enigmatic hint of a smile. It is simply ... impassive ... like a research biologist about to dissect a frog for the thousandth time. If she were sitting at the final table in the World Series of Poker, no one would know if she were holding a Royal Flush or an utter bust.
The smoldering sexual subplots really stir things up here. The breathtaking sight of the skintight pink undies on the captive's perfectly-formed ass (or is it 'arse', seeing as you're from the UK?) would make Pippa Middleton green with envy. The slipped-off shoulder strap on the mistress's fetching black designer cocktail minidress, not to mention the riveting position of its now-uber-raised hemline ...
... awww, screw the review. I've really gotta go take a cold shower!
OK, now my evil thoughts are rising to the occasion. In this one, I have a different take, a bit darker, a bit more sinister. Here, mommy is fed up with her defiant daughter and is determined to set her on the straight and narrow. Suddenly, the doorbell rings and in walks mommy's friend carrying a rather large tote bag-designer, of course. "She'll have to stay home tomorrow. She will be in no condition to attend class." "I'll call tomorrow and say she is sick." "Good, now let's empty my bag of goodies." "OH MY, honey, would you look at this!"
Sorry, couldn't resist. It's your artwork. Can I use that as an excuse?
I can picture the bound chick, who I've decided to call Celia, sporting a Ring-gag... I like that gag, but I don't know why I think Celia should be her name... Really good image, nonetheless! The thumbnail preview makes it look like a photograph!
if i'd tied both her 'lags' up to make a full suspension then she wouldn't have been able to move about and squirm a little, which would have been sad! not that i'm against full suspensions - there's one with a lot of rope coming up here: [link]
At least she doesn't have to do the dishes... I like the interesting tie, but especially the look on the face of the Mistress: there is definitely more to come! Too bad the fire in the fireplace is not lighted.
yeah, i suppose the picture revolves around the mistress' expression (which is why after i messed it up the first time i had to sneakily update the version of the picture i posted to fix the original oddity of her expression!)
i suppose i could have lit the fireplace, but flames are hard to draw! (and these days most people have their fireplaces filled with pine cones or pebbles etc. rather than actually using them...)
Something I rather like about this. It manages to be kind of cute yet sexy and kinky at the same time.
Not showing the poor victim's face here is an interesting choice. Though your text does hint that this isn't entirely willing, it allows everyone to put in their own expression. Be it annoyance, glee, or fear. As Bondagewriter said above, the dom's expression is also intriguing, that almost soft gentleness.
Also love the panties. So cute, pink, and riding right up into that rear.
I guess she's "eating and drinking" the scene in front of her The pose looks strict and painfull, yet not so much that she won't be able to stay like that for quite some time. The mistress also doesn't look scary. It's more like enjoying it while watching over her precious sub. As bondage should be like Congratulations on another beautiful piece of art Just wondering, what artistic medium do you use to make these pictures?
Just wondering, what artistic medium do you use to make these pictures? interpretive dance.
sorry, i just had the urge to say that... must stem from this: [link] . anyway, what i should have said was that that this was drawn and coloured on photoshop cs2 with a now rather battered tablet. i also used daz studio to work out the pose, along with hopping about the floor trying to hold the position myself (rather harder minus ropes). there're a fair few different custom brushes and textures in there, as well as the books which were taken from stock photos (not sure that worked, really) i've all my stuff on photoshop since i switched from pen and pencil lineart in 2009... i'm trying to remember when i last coloured something using traditional means, and have to say i really can't remember...
