So, I managed to place 3rd in
's last art contest using his OCs, which won me a character portrait. And what better character than Lady Bondage, who technically began as my OC, but has been completely inhabited and developed by
We started her as a very blatant rip-off of Ms. Marvel - mostly because Laurel had most of the costume and I could Photoshop the lightning bolt into an LB pretty easily. She's sort of a Catwoman character in that she's in between heroine and villain, and will stand up for what's right, but REALLY likes taking down heroines and keeping them as bondage pets for long stretches at a time, impish minx that she is.
Danger did an awesome job with her and then offered that I could add a background and remove his logo, which I removed just for the flow of the image.
As for the background, I discovered the wonderful work of Lelu Anatine, and she was kind enough to allow me to use her picture "Whispering" to add some ambience to LB's world.
Just when you think you're getting better at creating images, you run across the work of someone like Lelu and feel like you've brought a knife to an ICBM fight.

And yes, that's SL.
