This is maybe the simultaneously cutest and hottest page in the entire comic, which is a hard thing to accomplish believe me

I'll give it a shot.

Agree completely. Always excellent when characters are pushed as actual humans would be in this situation. View does a great job of portraying emotion, even when it is just a flicker.

Rules are being established...I bet Alis will prove to be a rebellious little sub.
Mister Flames edit delete reply
Well, sure, that's because she's a bit of a masochist, at least in relation to Sean. I just hope they work out something for safety, for both their sakes.
Sheela edit delete reply
Sheela
Well that, and the fact that she probably still wants to call her "mistress". :)

It should be noted that Alis has repeatedly said she'd say "no" or "stop". You don't need a safeword if "stop" works.

I wouldn't think Sean has it in her to actually harm Alis.

Hurt, sure, but that's different :P
Greebles (Guest) edit delete reply
Alis is so sexually charged at the moment that she's probably not going to be making the best choices, which really puts any amount of safety their activities will have in Seans court. Hopefully she doesn't accidentally break her new toy.

Actually they (we) usually call rebellious submissives who are allowed to rebel "pets".

Because a submissive submits, but you have to keep a pet under control, to an extent. (Alis being a masochist is just bonus points.)
TDL edit delete reply
Wow.

You could tell on the last page at panel 3 Sean was already pleased with and enjoying what she was doing, and the slight grin again here (again in panel 3) confirms it, a certain reveling in exerting an irresistible control. Her actions have the appearance of...steps that she's thought out previously, as almost tests, and it seems she doesn't want to put a label on it right now- but from her language and her control of Alis' body position, I think she's desiring to create an atmosphere in which to exert 'mental' control as well as just the physical, which she'd previously enjoyed.

Alis seems to have picked up on this too by offering 'Mistress' to her; and even turned down, she seems to have attached the same reverence for that title to Sean's name, at least for this duration. The formal 'yes' and the wide-eyed look also suggest to me that this has been an Alis fantasy for a while, as she's probably thought a little about her own conduct and what makes this sexy for her- hence affirming Sean's status over her verbally.

Suffice to say, I'm loving it. Both the physical and verbal language here is superb and the way it's shaping this emerging dynamic is wonderful. It'll be interesting to see what will be reflected in Sean's play that one can look back on previous pages and see the inklings of- perhaps that people can custom-make their own clothes will play into it? Who can say, but it'll be great finding out!

The story won't go on long enough for the custom clothes, but you've seen well!
TDL edit delete reply
Pretty nice to hear that custom-clothes is a concept/idea that will eventually feature in their relationship though, outside what you document. Perhaps at a fitting time it might be neat to do a sketch? I'm pretty sure everyone hear'd be interested.

I can't decide if I like panel 1 or 3 better but in any case panel 5 is fucking great.

Sail free submarine!

Ah ha ha .. oh yeah, the submarine in Alis is strong. :)

Oh my. I love how it goes from the open spaces in the first 3 panels to the tight, almost suffocating embrace in the last four. Throw in that lovely line from Sean and it feels like a complete tonal shift into something much more heavy. I absolutely love it, you capture and display the feeling of dominance very well in this page keep at it.

I wish I could embed sounds, but there is a certain voice clip from Wind Waker that perfectly describes Alis in panel five.

Well now. All this needs is some clamps, and a tanned bottom.

Spanking might still happen.

Happy Alis is Happy.

I'd forget that was a thing too.

Hey View! Hey View! Remember (or not) that stylus I had ordered like a YEAR AGO? Well, F those guys, I finally quit waiting and bought a graphics tablet.

Consider this your good deed for the week... year... whatever. You, of all people, managed to get me back into doing art. And it's a BIG DEAL. I'm over 40, stroke survivor, but for the first time in almost 20 years... I'm trying again!

Now, let's see if I can figure out this Manga Studio software... ;-)
view edit delete reply
view
Neat! Art is just a hobby for me, too, but it's a pretty rewarding one!

Manga Studio is pretty easy as big art programs go, but it might still take some getting used to. The first thing you'll want to figure out is how to edit brush settings, including how to edit suboptions. :)
Sheela edit delete reply

Getting back into art is way neat - Happy to hear it, Eire. :)

Sorry it took so long.

Time is relative! So technically it didn't take any time at all.

Awesome page View, love how Sean takes control, and tempers Alis' (seemingly unbound) sexual aggression.

Btw I got Black Desert Online, a Korean MMO with a very extensive character creator, so extensive that you can save you creation and come back and work on it more later, before you add it to the game world.
Long story short, I decided to use it to see if I could make Alis and Sean, Alis is still a work in progress, can't get her to look right in my eyes, plus the class I want her to be isn't in the US/EU version of the game yet.
But Sean is very close to done, so if you wanna take a look, I took some screenshots: http://postimg.org/gallery/1ggfmq9lq/

Wow, that looks pretty good! I don't generally play MMOs, but I love the character creators they're using these days!
Reathyr edit delete reply
Reathyr
Thanks, I'm happy that you as Sean's creator like it, now I can hopefully put my own perfectionism aside and add her to the game world.
Sheela edit delete reply
Sheela
Oh man, Character creators are fun to play around with.
Some said that the character creator was half the fun when playing the old game called City of Heroes.

That's 90% of what I use Second Life for, is character portraits.
