Anya and Tina in 11" x 17" Color! (7-14-13) SOLD

Tina and Anya, Ink & Marker on 11" x 17" Bristol, $149.95

So, I'll admit that this one has taken me a lot longer than it should, because I ended up starting over twice before I got it to look like I wanted it to.  But, I've also been spending more time studying my books and videos lately, which has led to a lot more experimentation.

  1. You really captured some very nice emotions in this one. Love it!

  2. Agreed! The emotions in this one are very feminine and intimate, not something one sees in this type of work too often...really nice. Taking that one step further, the way the figures are arranged seems to create a rather elongated heart, but a heart nevertheless. I also like the intimate nature of the pose, especially how Tina's right arm is positioned between Anya's breasts as she wipes away Anya's tear...there is a rare vulnerability here that, again, is all too rare in subject matter of this sort.

  3. Thanks, guys! I'd like to do more pieces like this. I think raw aggression is too prominent in a lot of bondage art. I hope I'm not offending any of my supporters, but I never have liked bondage art that continually strives to be more "extreme" than what came before it, escalating into increasing degrees of violence. I often think it appears childish, like the work of someone who needs to better manage their frustrations in life. It's okay to have some subject matter that gets rough from time to time, but I believe it belongs at one end of the spectrum, or the body of work as a whole will go nowhere and do nothing. As for this piece, it's something I wanted to do a long time ago, but have finally learned enough to get the effect I wanted.
