Writing Full Length Stories in the Deviation Description
I know, I know...it is an easy way to have a full size image and still write a story. But it bugs me to look at an artist's deviation stack and see text run down off the bottom of the screen. I never read those stories. I might look at the image, but in general the entire thing turns me off. If you are going to write an entire story...write it as text. If the picture is the point, then a multi-paragraph/page shouldn't be required. A picture is worth a thousand words...let the picture tell the story.
But I hear you say that this is the way you like to do things...fair enough, but I'm not going to scroll down through all that text to your next deviation and that might have been the one I might have fav'd.
Fuzzy, Furry Tied Up Animals
Why is this a thing? I really don't understand. I have mentioned this before and no one has explained it to me. I am not a fan of tape bondage, but I understand its appeal. I have no idea what the appeal is with tied up fuzzy, furry whatevers. Real women don't suffice? Or is it less taboo to tie up a sort of human looking or not animal? Or is it an animal fetish? I mean there are entire groups devoted to this stuff and I have no idea why.
The only thing I find sexy are the female elves...but that is because of Lord of the Rings.
I am not trying to put anyone down here...I just want to understand.
So, can someone explain the appeal to me? Are they just cute? [If they are just cute, why tie them up?] Are they somehow sexy? What is the story? Why is this a thing?
Why do Some Artists Feel it Necessary to Portray Multiple Bondage Styles in a Single Drawing or Image
What do I mean? When multiple damsels are in a drawing or image, sometimes they are tied up differently (rope vs. tape, for instance) and often different types of gags are used. So what's the problem...well, nothing if you are tying to appeal to the broadest possible audience, I suppose. Video producers have done that for years putting in different tie ups and gag combinations hoping that the customer will find one that they want and buy the entire video.
However, it is different with images and drawings, I think....at least it is for me. I am sure there are people who just like to see a woman tied up...doesn't matter how or what is used, but for a lot of us, it does matter. So what happens when an artist puts three different types of gags on three damsels and two of them I don't care for? I sigh and go on to the next image. I certainly don't fav it. Why? I, like many others, have specific bondage tastes. Putting in aspects of things I don't like will ruin an image or drawing for me.
The other problem for me is that someone tying up two or three women is not going to tie them differently or use a ballgag on one, tape gag on another and a cloth gag on a third. It will not happen. Any sense of reality is gone....even in a fantasy world.
So what's the answer? I can hear people now saying "Its artistic license. It is up to the artist" True enough, but it is still up the the viewer as to whether they like the image or drawing. What I am suggesting is use one technique for a specific image or drawing. If one damsel is going to be tied with rope, tie them all with rope...vary the actual ties, if you want, but tie them all with rope. If one is going to be tape gagged, tape gag them all. You can always do another image or drawing with different bindings and gags.
Now some artists have multiple versions of their drawings and illustrations featuring different gags, for instance. They do this even when there is only a single damsel. This solves some of this problem, of course. These artists are tying to fulfill multiple likes and tastes by modifying an illustration. I still personally prefer that an artist have a single vision for a particular drawing or illustration even if it doesn't fit my tastes, but that is just me. Still, this technique does recognize the problem of individual likes and tries to resolve it so I give them credit for that.
