Busted ^^

Two things might put you off : first, the censorship level, I call it “white hole” censorship for good reasons. Second, the play on lightness and darkness, producing HYPER contrasted areas, in which the pale whiteness of the flesh is like leaping towards us, in contrast to the dark backgrounds, and to the shadowed areas of the body itself. This is striking, but either you love it, or hate it, I can’t decide for you.

Two things you may love : an exhib girl masturbating herself in odd places until she’s busted (sex follows, d’oh!), and a very “powerful” drawing style, retaining some animality, the spontaneousness of instinct, like an animal greed for pleasure…

It’s up to you ! =) Thanks a lot to Dark Knight, this was interesting !

Thanks a lot to Darknight for all his hard work, and thanks Oliver for sharing, but I am definitely in the "hate it" crowd. From what I understand, this story uses something called "chiaroscuro shading", which is apparently an art technique used a lot in the 17th and 18th centuries. Although it might work for a singular work of art that you would see on a wall in a gallery, I found it ugly and distracting when used for a work of hentai. An interesting experiment, I guess, but this one goes straight into the recycle bin. :(

From the "love it" crowd here, I think it adds this claustrophobic tension that seems more appropriate for the situation (in the manga). I want to see what else the artist can elicit like this. In a work with a more negative relationship I think something truly disturbing could be made.
