Mistress Elita’s dark dream

elita_darkdream

The commissioner of this portrait of the stunning Mistress Elita had the good sense to ask her how she would like to be depicted instead of imposing his own fantasy on it. She came up with a rather dark but powerful fantasy shown here.The slave males are processed through a workshop, arriving at her end with less than they started – to start a new life as  her personal item.

Needless to say she was delighted with this but wishes to stress that it is a complete fantasy and should not be taken as a service on offer!

A Classic Scene

kneeling

This commissioned line drawing states a simple but timeless message-beautiful mistress with whip, towering over a devoted kneeling slave…no particular mistress was requested, simply ‘anyone beautiful’.
Sometimes it’s good to go back to the basics. I welcome simple themes like this as much as anything unusual and complicated.

The Funfair set of paintings

Following on the Gag-shop series, made for Japanese magazine “Goddess love” (女神の愛)  for my next “a la ronde” series where one frame leads to the next and back to the start, I requested four famous English mistresses to be models in an enactment of scenes from a femdom funfair.

In the first frame a pair of swing boats, supported by males tightly bound in black leather, showing the main participants in this series, Joanna Lark and Mistress Elizabeth Swan in the foreground and Mistress Evilyne and Mistress Elita.

In the second a carousel with male horses! Mistress Elizabeth is here riding one of her favoured real-life submissives ‘puck’ and behind them Mistress Evilyne with ‘kurdy’.

Then on to some stalls with a specialised form of femdom humiliation. The Shell Shock stall presents the ladies with the opportunity to humiliate males by throwing eggs at them. Mistress Evilyne enjoys the effect that a cracked egg makes as it trickles down the poor male’s head.

In the last frame a much darker scene – the “Torment Tent”. Mistress Elita touches a very suggestive lever of one of the electric shock-boxes, noticing the fear in the victim’s eyes, while Joanna Lark peeps in curiously.

 

If you live in Japan you can buy the present issue -No 12 – from Amazon.
Regrettably the magazine cannot be bought overseas.

Portrait of Ms Jaded Halo 2

jaded2_blog

Ms Jaded Halo loved her first portrait so much she wanted a mirror image to make a pair.

This time she is seated receiving a new pair of shoes on a platter from a worshipper while another delights in the ones she is now wearing. She sits beside a wall of security boxes containing other expensive brands, gifted to her by her legions of admirers, but only she possesses the key to open the boxes…and of course their hearts.

See Ms Jaded Halo’s site.

Portrait of Lady Ambrosia Noir

ms_ambrosia

This portrait, in classic black-and-white watercolour, shows Australian Mistress Ambrosia (a devotee of anal play) in latex nurse costume, in front of a diabolical milking and insertion apparatus. A pause to pose for us then she will turn around to render added excitement to the sissified victims with the electric wand in her hands.

Portrait of Princess Sheridan

sheridan_blogscan

Princess Sheridan sits in a cool dark forest glade, having her feet worshipped by adoring slaves while in the background two others are fed by a bizarrely formed natural spring – what would that be? No matter, they venerate it in their devotion to her.

This portrait was unusually commissioned by a group of Princess Sheridan’s most loyal submissives who split the cost amongst themselves, with one acting as ‘paymaster’.

Princess Sheridan was delighted with the work and has posted a short video thanking her team for the gift.

Figure Drawing

Every few years or so I like to spend a few months reviewing my knowledge of anatomy which forms the basis of my figure drawing. Starting from the head down to the feet I test my knowledge by sketching all the bones and muscles in the human body.
I think it is imperative to be able to draw any human figure from imagination if need be. If you can find good reference so much the better but you cannot be reliant on it. These days of course reference is abundant and free…you search the big G for “man bending over to kiss woman’s heel” and there is the photo or even video, with or without the original creator’s permission. Previously the model for such a subject was simply not available so you’d draw from imagination. A reference though will only provide an indication to work from. Unless you thoroughly understand what you are drawing  you might slavishly copy the outlines but it will fail to look convincing, distortions that the camera might make will not be understood and the drawing will look inexplicably wrong .
So how do you learn to draw human figures? By studying human anatomy -there is no way round it. The books that were published when I started learning many years ago were and are still of varying degrees of usefulness. My all-time favourite is “Figure Drawing” by Richard G. Hatton (1904). I foolishly lent and never got back my original hardback but still have a now well-thumbed paperback Dover reprint.

A typical page from “Figure Drawing”
Other books will teach you basic proportions but I found most rather lightweight and insufficiently detailed. There is a recent vogue for books teaching you how to draw figures in Anime style or superheroes. I am no fan of either but I think it is necessary to be able to draw figures as they are first, then modify the features afterwards to a style rather than pursuing the style first.
On no account attempt to learn artistic anatomy from a medical textbook. This will not distinguish which parts of the body are relevant to figure drawing. You’ll only get distracted by features that have no relation to what an artist needs to know, and may even imagine you have “every ailment except Housemaid’s knee”.
Figure drawing at art college often involved a human skeleton with an amusing name like Harry. We mused whose bones he might have been in life before he was hung up for our benefit. It was useful to examine his bones to understand their form so he may be reassured his bequest to us was not in vain.
One development I recently discovered, which would have been very useful when I was first studying, are apps that allow you to see muscle insertions and skeletons at any angle by rotating a 3D model. One in particular -Visible Body -is highly commendable.
I recommend these however as adjuncts to an explanatory book or website to further elucidate what is not so readily understandable in print.
I’ll leave you with one of my favourite figure artists – Watteau, 1684 – 1721. A consummate French draughtsman equal to many of the Renaissance artists  but a greater lover of female beauty and more delicate.
