Re: In The Family #25 & 26

Postby web-ed » Sun Jun 03, 2012 10:47 pm

How enjoyable to watch both sets of Dianne's cheeks blushing red! :oops: #25 is my favorite of the two this time, even though you can't tell from this one panel in isolation that she's struggling rather desperately (you can if you look at #26!), because I love the symmetry of her perfectly-aligned buttocks! In both panels we see that the red shading has been carefully graduated to resemble what we see in actual practice when the spanking implement is the hand or a small paddle or a slipper (as in this case).

As to the question of whether the "younger generation" should have witnessed this spanking, I'm not sure. While it is true that witnesses make a spanking more humiliating as we saw conclusively in "One Good Turn", in this case Al and Barbara might have been as embarrassed as Dianne! Most of the witnesses in "One Good Turn" could politely be described as horny old men, which made them ideal for their roles! The daughter there missed part of her mother's spanking because she was so focused on her own stinging rear, but she still qualified as a witness. Still, I think she was less embarrassed than Al and Barbara would have been here - the situation is quite different. And as has been pointed out, our situation here is likely to lead straight to the bedroom, so any characters other than Carl and Dianne would simply be in the way.

And although it might come too late, I'd like to offer a suggestion that the next swat should be shown actually LANDING. We haven't seen a "contact" picture since 023. The other pics look like Al is just waving his hand around.

Lord knows, I too have drawn many pictures of a guy spanking a girl, showing his hand in the air. But those are just individual pics. When you draw a continuing spanking, over several pics, it is a good idea to show some contact in at least a few pics.

Cheers,
Dan

hi web-ed,

i'm glad you're enjoying the blushing :D . in this case i agree with you since i like #25 best of the 2 also. i really got a smile from your comment about the shading of the red bottoms because it's difficult to get that subtle difference in shading in a sequence such as this without getting her bottom way too red. in both these pics i adjusted the color several times and compared them to each other and the previous pics before finalizing it so it's nice to hear you say i got it right :D .

your perspective here is interesting and i agree with your comment that this situation is much different than in one good turn. it does seem like public spankings seem to be the favorites among my viewers but there are indeed situations that require a private spanking and i felt like this was one of those. i enjoyed your comparison of the 2 different toons and those spectators in "one good turn" were indeed horny old men :lol: . thanks, phil

hi everyone,

well, Carl told Dianne that she'd be squalling and pleading for him to stop and it looks like he was right :D . looking at her bottom it's not too hard to understand why either. seems like Carl has given her a bad case of "shiny hiney" :lol: . i'll have 2 more pics next Friday to wrap this toon up and then we'll move along to a different story. i hope you enjoy this week's installment. phil

Once again, Phil, I am in awe of your superb artistry. Your two latest pics for the "In the Family" soap opera are shining examples of your art... and, the way Dianne's bottom cheeks look about now, they too are "shining" or "shiny" examples :D

I have downloaded most of your panels to my files, but not all of them. I realize this is not true of all your fans, but I demur when it comes to pics in which the lady's bare crotch is exposed to view. By sheer coincidence -- or maybe by Divine intervention -- the one panel in which that occurs, your no. 27, also has one other drawback; and that is, a first-time viewer of this panel would probably be confused by the appearance of Carl's right hand. Those of us who have been following the story know that he is using a slipper as a spanking implement; but when you display it sideways, as here in no. 27, it's difficult to make out what the implement IS, or whether Carl simply has a deformed right hand. Ideally, the implement should always be discernible to the reader.

You are greatly to be commended for the excellent modulation you have used for reddening Dianne's bottom. In her first over-the-knee panel, your no. 23, the color of her bottom looks to be normal, even as Carl brings the slipper down on it. But her flesh tones change gradually, as she receives one swat after another, and at the end her bottom cheeks look as bright and as red as tail lights on a patrol car.

You've said that you plan to post two more panels in this story. Since Dianne already looks thoroughly and soundly spanked, I assume those last two panels will feature hugging and consoling from Carl, and a lot of "I'm sorry"s from Dianne. Let me say that, however you choose to end it, "In the Family" will occupy a choice place in the pantheon of great spanking stories.

Cheers,
Dan

hi Dan,

thanks for the kind words. it's nice to know the time and effort i put into these is appreciated :D .

i think we will probably always disagree on the exposure issue but i thought that it was pretty subdued this time so hopefully you didn't find it too offensive. on the issue of the slipper, i noticed that it was kind of side ways but i thought it looked as if he was holding as he naturally would and considering the angle from which the pic is shot i thought it looked good. i'll have to spend some time considering this and if anyone else has comments about them i hope they will free to make them.

as i told web-ed, i spend a lot of time working and re working on the coloring for her blushing cheeks so it's nice to hear that i got it right :D . as you mentioned, the changes are gradual and i have to keep going back and forth between pics to make sure i don't have them out of order.

Dianne's spanking is indeed over so the last 2 pics will be concerned with other things. actually, i'm hoping that at least part of it will be somewhat surprising and perhaps a little amusing. thanks again for the kind words. they brought a grin to my face :D . phil

This has to be one of the most thorough spankings of all time! I'm very pleased by the view of Dianne's red bottom in #27. Although it doesn't in any way detract from this work, I did notice a change between these two panels, not just of the viewing angle, but of Carl's and Dianne's orientation with respect to the rest of the room. It almost looks like the figures have been rotated by an equal angle in the opposite direction to the rotation of the viewing angle. Maybe she's wriggling around so much he's rotating the chair as he holds her down? It doesn't matter - the important thing in any spanking is always what the spanker and spankee are saying and doing, not how they're positioned with respect to the furniture.

hi web-ed,

i'm glad you enjoyed the "view" :D . as far as the orientation of our spanking couple goes, all i can say is that you caught me :lol: . most of these "sets" that i work with are just 2 walls and a corner of a room and i have to be careful to keep the camera pointed where it doesn't go out of the scene. in many cases i have to also rotate the spanker and spankee in order to get the view that i want. in this particular case i had a problem getting everything lined up like i wanted and in the process i let this slip by. by the time i noticed it, i was too far along to go back and correct it. besides, it's been my experience that most folks are concentrating on "other aspects" of the pic and usually don't notice :lol: . i'm glad you enjoyed the pic anyway. thanks, phil
