If you are a past visitor here, you'll probably know that from time to time I post a list of dA galleries I've come across that I've added to my list of galleries that to me are worthwhile visiting again and keeping track of. That list is currently about 2500 or so, since I also routinely eliminate from the list galleries whose artists haven't posted anything in over a year. Otherwise we'd be up around 5000, which is, frankly, ridiculous. Anyway, here's an update of galleries that over the last few months I've encountered that were new to me. I commend them to anyone who wants to see what intrigues me in others' work:

3DFetish / akahime / ApocalypticAtsuko / ArdorinRay / Artiste1955 / axelpablo / babaugaliano / Badger1115 / BigOuchies (this month's winner of the "BnadAid" award) / BrewSeattle (this month's winner of the "Aw Come On Already" award) / bustlebondage / CassidyBryce / CheshireCatSmile37 / Claire-Dawkins / ComiPa /  corset10 / corsetry (group) / cosPharaoh /  Cowcake / crabbyoldman (this month's winner of the "Wish I'd Thought Of That" award) /DarkkArt-666 / DarknessOfAnubis / darkprinceNarrok / DiDPedoTED / donsirphotography / DragonAgeDiD / DragonMP93 / Eclesi4stiK / Enojado / ErotiqueTales / Fantasy-Play / Fastfict / Firagamon / GaggedSissy / Geeklez / Gesperax / Gunsmithcat / H1kar1ko / HardBargainArt / Hhallart / Hidyhole / Jipe77 / KaraBound / LearningTheR0pes / Khallitzburg / LifesLittleStruggles / MadamLogician / Malidine / Masterfrederick / MelinaMcAwesome / Mozer1a0x / mp5stab / Muldrow88 / NineLoops / Nora-JP / Norite-Kinen / PaulWeb / Phyrepheonix / reaperx15 / REDdumpster / RoLeDeSe (this month's winner of the "Get Your Shift Key Repaired" award) / SharpFFFFFF (this month's winner of the "Take Your Fingers off The Keyboard When You Get Tired" award) / Shugarskull / SinisterMarauder / Skygaggedrim / tavishart / TenezisHD / TheOneAndOnlyCaptor (this month's winner of the "I'm Not Bragging" award) / TheSoundInside / Tryst1 / TheThirdArchangel (this month's winner of the "Who Knew?" award) / Tompengpengpeng / Wonder-Delta / Wildcard84 / YvonneCraig

Long list, but then there are a lot of hours in the middle of the night that I've used up.

My list of friends made here at dA continues to grow, even though some of them have retreated from posting here because of the lack of due process in levying penalties for violating the TOS. Can't blame them, since it's infuriating. But I value these new (and old) friends highly. I continue to comment on works of art (stories and images) as the spirit moves me, and some have led to delightful conversations.

My parallel gallery, for posting my drawings and stories (bandmachart.deviantart.com) gets fewer viewers. But if you'd like to see what passes for my own artistic expression, feel free to visit.
"Even a stopped clock is right twice every day. After some years, it can boast of a long series of successes." — Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach,  Aphorisms (1893)

"When you are young you are surprised if everything isn't a success, and when you get older you're mildly surprised is anything is." — Kathleen Norris, Women in Love (1935)



Thought I'd offer a sincere and celebratory "Thank you!" to everyone: I've just passed the "30,000 Pageviews" milestone. 

I know that 30K isn't really a big number; it's a small success. So many of the artistic friends I've made here are into the hundreds of thousands on their pages, and that knowledge keeps me very humble indeed. Still, considering that this is not my art-posting gallery, and that what's here are essays, rants, and dialogue, I marvel that so many people (or so few but very dedicated people) have spent time here over the last seven years. Over 11,000 comments have been left on this site, almost all of them supportive and engaging. Makes me feel really good about being here and continuing to do what I do.

Again, thank you all very much. Onward and upward!

Best,

Danny
Abused And Steamed by clay3570
This is a really intense image. it has a lot going for it, including pose, expression, shading and shadow, lighting choices, and overall concept. Much to like and appreciate.

Special likes: the welts, the clamped nipples, the clipped labia.

A couple of concerns:

1. It's not immediately obvious how her wrists are attached to the lower bar, nor why she should be making fists (except for dealing with overall pain).
2. If she's been there that long, her face ought to be more "drawn" – that is, showing signs of exhaustion, especially with her tongue pierced and weighted. Needs tears, and/or drool, and/or forehead creases, and/or eyebrow curves, and/or more pronounced bags under her eyes, etc.
3. Her thighs don't seem to be long enough, even given the perspective and POV you've chosen. If we're supposed to assume that most of her legs are pulled behind her, then we should be seeing the soles of her feet somewhere, and her torso ought to be canted a bit forward. But if she's supposed to be kneeling on that bottom bar, then she needs more length in her thighs.

This could be a very high potential image; I'm hoping these suggestions are amenable to you.
Vanned by geekling
Overall, this seems to me a very successful drawing. Pose is good, shading and shadowing very effective, adding depth and perspective. Damsel's facial expression is quite nice, especially those eyebrows that convey concern, apprehension, maybe even (of course) discomfort. The pulled-up mini and the panty-peeks are okay, too, but I just don't get the knot-tied blouse, nor the thigh-high boots. I mean that the school tie clearly signifies the "school-girl" thing, but why is it that this type of damsel is always portrayed more as a slut/prostitute than as a helpless victim?

The rigging: everything works well here except for the coils around her calves. Those make no sense. One wouldn't try to tie anywhere there is a strong muscle group: not biceps, and not calves. All she has to do is straighten out her legs, which will change the shape of her calf muscles and...voilà!...those calf ropes come loose, or slide up to just below her knees where they ought to have been in the first place.

One final comment, which I find myself making frequently: if this is a kidnapping scenario, then that ball gag makes no sense. Yes, it sure is nice to look at, very sexy, but completely useless in trying to keep her quite. Ball-gags don't muffle any loud sound, they simply make speech unintelligible. Great for humiliation, but not good for a kidnapping. Stuffing and tape is much more effective.

But, as I said, it's sexy, and so why would anyone care about that?!

Lovely piece of work.
Visitors to my posting gallery will see another 17 newly posted drawings plus one new story! Please do come and visit bandmachart.deviantart.com.

My last load of posted drawings and stories (in August) didn't really generate much feedback. Not that I expect much, but I can always hope. Maybe this lot'll stir up my small but rabid viewership. Any and all feedback is welcome, as long as it's constructive!! Thanks, all.

Amateur artist, professional writer, musician, champion of lost causes, blowhard and pedant, and active commenter and admirer of many (but certainly not all) artists and writers here at dA. I do not much admire the application of power by dA's administrators, however.

I have two accounts here at dA: 1) "dannysuling" is my home base for surfing and commenting, for maintaining personal and professional ties, and for posting story reviews, my own screeds, journals, and essays on topics having to do with what goes on at dA; 2) "bandmachart" is where I post stories I have written and amateur drawings I have done (most of which are adult and transgressive, so be forewarned).

I'm definitely of an older generation. I wasn't around when Washington crossed the Delaware, but I was certainly born well before Bob went electric at Newport. I care about good writing, good art, ethical behavior, the environment; I am a feminist!

I'm frustrated. Every time I sit down to finish up your story, thinking I have a good couple of hours, something happens...kids ringing my doorbell, sink leaking, business phone calls, dinner prep, on and on and on. I need a bodyguard to protect me from time-wasters!!!

Not sure whether I qualify for the category membership, but I'll consider it an honor if it's true. Nothing wrong with developing and using the brain that evolution has bequeathed us!!

Thanks for the note and the visit! I have no time to draw anymore, and only post when I can manage to steal some time to do so. Thanks for the compliments though!
