I really like this. It is my type of bondage drawing...it tells a story and a dramatic one.

Things I really like.
I like the shading that is used that that highlight the curvature of the bodies.
I like the knotted cleave gag and the fact that it is patterned like a scarf or bandanna.
I like the fact that she has pulled the phone cradle off of the bed stand and that 911 is on the receiver.
The expressions on the girl and guy are spot on.

Things I think could be improved.
The guy's proportions don't seem quite right to me.
I don't think that the sharp lines defining some parts of the bodies work well. For instance the line on the guy's leg looks like it might be a deep cut. Also the shirt has the same type of lines. I realize the artist is trying to make the muscles and folds stand out, but a slight softening of the lines might be better.

About the action...

I love drawings like this...it tells a story. Things that bug me a little. Where did the guy come from? He wasn't standing there when she started this attempt to use the phone, I assume. Wouldn't the door be open if he came in and saw her? Why wouldn't he be diving for the phone instead of standing there looking mean? Perhaps he is simply that confident? I admit that this is a very dramatic moment and I am second guessing the plot.

Overall, an excellent illustration. I gave it a fav.

As the commissioner of this wonderful artwork, I'm able to put the scenario in context for those of you who may need some "backstory." The beleaguered damsel happens to be my OC Jenna Coverdale. I wrote a story featuring her, since withdrawn from my gallery because the Couples in Distress theme wasn't working for me or my Watchers. Briefly, Jenna is tracked to her father's Florida condo by an obsessive ex-boyfriend, roped and gagged, and stashed in a closet while awaiting a one-way trip fifty miles out into the Gulf of Mexico. Being the plucky and determined heroine that she is, Jenna escapes the closet and struggles her way to the landline phone only to be caught trying to call 911.

Yes, it would make more sense to have the psycho ex just coming through the door, but that's my fault. As is, Geekling was able to take a rough idea submitted to him entirely via Note and turn out a finished product in the space of one or two days. The end result is this depiction of a favorite DiD trope, the Thwarted Escape Attempt. Loving the attention to detail, from the "911" digits visible on the phone display, to the pattern in the fabric of the bandanna gag, to the rings holding (barely) her swimsuit together. This is the first Geekling artwork I've commissioned, but it won't be the last.

I don't have any formal critique...at least, not this time. But I thought the concept was working quite well, and all the little humorous touches helped with the visual story line. Didn't need the commissioner's actual storyline to enjoy this.

And, truthfully, I LOVE the "couples in distress" theme, so I'm disappointed that Bound2thetrax caved in to the preferences of his viewers. Push the boundaries, I say. Isn't that what art is supposed to do?

I wonder if she knows that he's watching her and is probably waiting for the police to pick up so he can snatch the phone away. Maybe use the telephone cord as a hogtie line...

"Phone? Phone? What phone? Oh, I thought this was the television remote."
Excellent work as usual, Geekling. Your damsels are always beautiful and their expressions always clear even when gagged.
