If anyone's interested, there's a lovely extended bondage sequence in issue 3 of 'Three Little Kittens'.
You can pick it up cheap on Comixology...
...or read it here: readcomiconline.to/Comic/3-Lit…

Just letting you all know, from now on I'll be uploading super high res images (because I just noticed they look awful on tablet devices with resolutions larger than 1920x1080).
This might mean that the pictures look ever so slightly worse previewed on their respective pages, but the downloadable versions will be big and beautiful!
I've already re-uploaded the Detailed Checkup strip if you want to see what I'm talking about.
My commission for :iconbunglebing: is finished. Go check his lovely characters knocked out and splayed on the floor: Tales of Somneria - Captured by Bandits! by BungleBing

I'm starting a new web-based disease! Wherein I take a close look at and break down three of my favourite DiD pieces and then cough on another member of the DiD community here on DeviantArt! ... For academia's sake.
I think It will be fun.
Here we go.

UNDER THE WATER by GREAT-DUDE
 UNDER THE WATER by :icongreat-dude: (Who really deserves more attention, by the way) featuring Lady from Devil May Cry 4.
There's plenty of trapped underwater bondage pics, it's a fairly popular subject (Disney strikes again) but I don't think I've seen a piece that takes advantage of it as well as this one. With the flaps of her clothes, her necklace, her hair, all drifting against gravity, her sunglasses drifting away by the current, like there's an invisible force constantly tugging on her on in all directions, making her peril seem all the more intrusive.
Her expression and her contorted pose are both lovely on their own, but they play together to create even more emotions. Lady isn't going to take this sitting down, but it's not like there's a lot she can do about it. So her asymmetric expression wants to match her defiant body language but is also still shocked at the desperation of her situation, which loops back around to make her struggling form look all the more doomed and helpless.
If there's on take away I think it's that - the power of asymmetric facial expressions.

Number 2:

Birthday President by we-r-nomad
 Birthday President by :iconwe-r-nomad: Featuring :iconcristiandraws:'s character Shakti at the mercy of Nomad's own Nomoko.
This is, hands down, my favourite DiD piece ever. An example of how even stuffy old principles of general art can enhance eye candy like this. Nomoko's pose and the silhouette of her dress form a swooping triangle that leads your gaze up to the main star of the piece: Nomoko's face, Shakti's face, and Shakti's lovely baggage. It was wise to leave plenty of negative space at the top of the picture, it leaves this focus point of the image right around where the rule of thirds says we naturally expect to see the most important thing in the picture.
Notice that even the ripples in the fabric of Nomoko's skirt form a swooping motion guiding your eye. And even Shakti's lower legs, which would seem to interrupt the triangle silhouette, are still angled to catch your attention and then lead it back towards the action; due to perspective, her feet are the closest to the foreground, and it's natural your eyes trace where the feet are coming from.
Something I've made an effort to learn from in Nomad's art is how he takes full advantage of the soft, squishy properties of the not just the muscle bellow the skin, but the fatty deposits as well. The way her shoulder is being squeezed and deformed around the tricep by the tape, and how not just her breasts but the surrounding flesh in her chest is all being pushed upward and restricted. Combine that with how perfectly drawn the seems and stretched reflections are to display the tension in the tape. It's immediately communicated how tightly Shakti's been wrapped up.

Do you copy?! by Kusujinn
 Do you copy?! by :iconkusujinn: featuring Mercy and Roadhog from Overwatch.
It takes a careful touch to dip into full nudity, but this is a great example of using it's powerful implications of fear and vulnerability instead of just a more blatant than usual peepshow.
Light is used very effectively here, with Roadhog being obfuscated, large and imposing, in shadow while Mercy is hung out in the light, like the whole universe's attention is unwantedly on her. Combined with her pale flesh tone, she almost looks to be glowing, which matches the ethereal vibe she was designed to put out in the first place.
When I first saw this piece I thought the text balloons were extraneous, but now I think they do add something. It adds a flow of time to how one experiences the image; it creates a scene in one's mind where in this monologue, oblivious to the situation at hand, is answered with powerful silence and a single still image.
I actually can't tell the angle of Mercy's head; if she's letting her head drop in dejection, or if she's looking Roadhog (probably fearfully) in the eyes. But maybe that's just gravy, that we get to pick. They're both appealing to imagine.


Well those are my three pic picks!
And now I will tag... :icondamselbinder:
I want to see what pieces demonstrate the aspects of DiD art that really make the difference for other people. So of course, anyone who wants to join in, don't feel like you have to wait to be tagged.

This question got asked at a house party after a few too many ciders, and now I pose it you.
What's your most hated film?
Not the film you think demonstrates the poorest of film making, but the film that personally hurt you the most?
  • Reading: Wytches
  • Playing: Skyrim
  • Drinking: A bit much
Hey all. If you've been following my amateur comics for long then you'll notice that my style has swerved all over the road in the last few years while I find the way I enjoy working. I've gone from attempted realistic, painterly style to more contemporary line art style. Very recently I think I've really found how I want to draw, the most recent page of Luxuria feeling like the best I've ever done ^_^
I'm not that good at rendering (the process of adding light and shadow detail into the colours) nor do I enjoy it that much, so I've been adjusting my style so most of that light and shadow information is handled in the line art and beta stages (beta is when you fill in big blocks of black around the line art) so that the image looks complete even with a flat colouring scheme.
I still have some learning to do, and I've wanted to draw in black and white as a way of forcing myself to learn how best to achieve this effect, the challenge being to make the pages look clean and easily readable without any colour to assist.
But I've already got too many commitments in Luxuria and Out of Reach, so I thought what I'd do to kill two birds with one stone is to do these two comics in black and white, then colour them and submit them like I have been, but then submit the black and white versions to my scraps folder.

  • Reading: Southern Bastards
  • Watching: Rick & Morty
  • Playing: Night in the Woods
  • Eating: failed pad thai
I got some sweet new brushes, and they're paying off immediately!



I really want to draw a comic in black and white. I feel like once I can do that the flat colouring technique will be easy. But what? Of all the projects I have in my head, they all seem to demand colour.
  • Listening to: The Fat Rat
  • Watching: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable
  • Playing: Dream Daddy
  • Drinking: Cherry Cider
I'm still alive!
I know, it's been like 33 years since my last submission. The comics will continue. I was worried my Mass Effect 2 story would wrap up when we were all playing Mass Effect 15 and the 'kids these days' won't even know who Liara or Commander Shepard are anymore, but then Andromeda came out and shamed the franchise into hyper-sleep, so now it looks like I've still got time.

I've been working on some pages, for Luxuria, but here's the deal. Some things are going to change.
The last few years have been really great for me in terms of artistic growth. The reason Luxuria changes art style every few pages is because I didn't know how I wanted to draw, and I was trying lots of stuff out. Over the last couple of months I've come to understand that there is no 'picking' an art style, one's style develops as a result of them drawing as feels natural to them. So that's what I've been doing and what I'll keep doing.
Drawing has taken me so long because I've always been trying something new. If I just do what comes naturally, my style will become consistent and I will become a faster worker in that style. And I've been fretting for a while because I can't please everyone, and some people might not like my new look. But it's the look I'm keeping and fuck you!
I don't owe you anything!
It's free!
Free comics!

The thing is, I'm not that fond of rendering, the process by which drawing objects are given depth using complex colour work. So I've been studying contemporary comics with flat colour styles, and the accompanying penmanship that makes it work and not completely 2d and dull. Lots of black and shadow in the line art to do a lot of the toning so the colours don't have to.
And the other thing I've been looking into and practicing is abandoning local colour. 'Local colour' refers to the colour of something in a neutral white lit environment. My local colour for example is a pale pinky colour because I'm a pasty little white girl, but if I went outside during a full moon I'd actually look quite dark blue.

My pictures so far have been almost completely rendered in local colour. I managed to kick that somewhat in the Mass Effect comic, but I really want to make an effort to stylise my pages now, theming them and differentiating scenes with different coloured light environments.
If you want a taste of what that will look like, I recently completed the first page of a three page commission for :icondamselbinder:, who was kind enough to lend me his characters so I could test this new style out:

Enhancegirl + Spectra: ''Tendrils of Darkness 1'' by Damselbinder

I like it. I'm happy with it, so that's how it's gonna be!
So I was recently in Taiwan visiting a friend, and perusing a doujinshi convention that was on, I came across somebody selling an interesting little read.
It was called DMC4 Luxuria. Well actually I don't know what it was called. I can't read Chinese. But the art sure was familiar.
I didn't know what to say, so I just asked him (actually had my friend ask him) where Chapter 3 was.
He told me he's working on it. I certainly can't wait to see it. :)
Fate has been kind to me this day. www.flickeringmyth.com/wp-cont…
:icondamselbinder:'s written adaptations of Luxuria has now caught up to Chapter 2, and can be read in the artist comment section on each page.
Fellow Deviantart member :icondamselbinder:, a saucy fiction writer with a mutual interest in DiD stories, has written up some passages telling to Luxuria story (shibaji.deviantart.com/gallery…)
So I'll be putting them up in the comment description of each corresponding page in my gallery. So if you'd like to read Damselbinder's adaptation of the Luxuria comic, just work through the pages. And if you like what you read, go and check out their page: damselbinder.deviantart.com
