Natasha Zare -the spider throne

A love of entomology and spiders in particular inspired this commission for Natasha Zare .

“Include something about spiders and a throne please”

So the spider throne was born .

Dressed in a tight fitting costume Natasha teases her bound victims with her bizarrely-shaped heels, ridiculing their attempts to approach her.
In the background the detritus of a previous conquest remains captured within her silk web.

Portrait of DomDeLuXury

A throne scene in watercolour-but with a twist this time.

An orchid blooms. Incense rises up from a high spout.
Domdeluxury plays with her whip and looks down from the high throne at her new gift. Her maid, Pammy, (the commissioner of the painting) stands before her in traditional maid’s outfit presenting a precious new female slave, tightly bound in ropes.
She kneels and gazes up at the beauty of her mistress then adores her new mistress’ high heels.
I rarely draw female submissives or conventional rope bondage, but I’m pleased with the bondage depicted here and the dynamics of the composition.

The commissioner of the painting Pammy (and also wife of Domdeluxury )also has her own site.

Portrait of Princess Miki Aoki

For this digital portrait of online idol and manipulatrix Princess Miki, I was given a reasonably open brief-to depict her as a cult leader if she were to do it physically.

So the title of Princess suggested a magical kingdom, a leader perhaps with a chariot drawn by her devoted admirers. A Graeco-Roman type scene and maybe – why not? – some strange looking doves flying to either side, accompanying the Goddess of Love itself.

The mixture of the purity of her dress and cool poise, together with black leather gloves, whip and reins creates a powerful look which expresses her online personality.

Portrait of Ibicella 2

This watercolour of Ibicella was inspired by a painting of Samson and Delilah by the French symbolist artist Gustave Moreau.
Samson lies asleep on the lap of Delilah, who gazes out at the viewer langorously and knowingly, before cutting off his hair.

Ibicella is here shown seated on a throne inspired by the petals of the Ibicella lutea flower, after which she takes her name.
Perhaps it is the end of a bacchanal, and she looks out at us with a similar gaze, her hair circled with ivy leaves, and her slave has collapsed over her knee, drunk from wine and her passionate embrace, his chalice fallen to the ground, but still bound to her by long tendrils which run the length of her palace. He wears a mask reminiscent of a fools’ cap, for he is in the best sense a “fool for love”.
In the background another slave has been holding a tray of wine for the evening’s debauchery.

Ibicella unveiled the painting during a webcam in which she thanked the commissioner and myself .

Portrait of Mistress Jade 2

A further commission was ordered for Mistress Jade at the time of the previous portrait

Mistress Jade herself was asked how she wished to be depicted in this one.

On a moonlit balcony she stands in a long night-blue dress and holds a whip. Before going out to the garden to whip a slave who is chained to the tree branch, she pauses for a drink presented to her by her favourite slave-girl. Ivy runs round the walls and creeps up a human lamp-holder, totally encased in leather.

Portrait of Mistress Jade

A very classic scene in classic monochrome.
I usually try to avoid a dark dungeon location but occasionally it works well, as in this portrait of Mistress Jade of Boston , U.S.A.
The commissioner of this portrait kneels before his adored mistress and awaits his punishment at her hands. She will start with a very robust face-slapping and then will take the objects on the table for more intense torments.

Portrait of Mistress Celeste 2

A beautiful spring day and a gentle breeze.
Daffodils bloom, sheltered by the endless extent of Hadrian’s wall, a short journey from the chambers of Mistress Celeste in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
Her expensive thigh-high boots crush the grass underfoot as she takes aim with her single-tail whip.
Her muscular slave, bound by taut ropes, tenses in anticipation and waits for the first lashing.

Mistress Kelle Martina in fur

A surreal setting for this drawing of Miss Kelle Martina.
(See previous portraits)
I was given a free rein to pursue an imaginative line drawing provided the art included leather, gloves, boots and bondage.
So here she sits on a throne in her palace. A miniature toy beside her, wrapped tightly in bonds and attached by a leash, symbolically portrays her dominance.
Through the window we can see a high tower with a high heel pinnacle, and perhaps through the window of that tower a similar scene is happening?

The Rocking Horse

 

rockinghorse_final

An abandoned lumber-room at the top of the house.

An enchanted rocking-horse in gleaming leather.

Was this once a man, now destined to wait for Mistress Sakura Strike to come upstairs to play with him?
She gazes up to the moon above, ignoring the groans beneath her and muses on her next adventure.

In the corner of the room, a gentleman puppet in top-hat and tails, who fell for her charms. He danced and dined with her once but now lies discarded in the corner, waiting like the rocking-horse for her occasional visits.
