I just knew this picture would come in handy someday!
Sorry I haven't been around much, but I've been busy with some real life stuff and I've been glued to the TV for the NFL draft. I want to know what all the teams are doing to upgrade and who all these new players are. The irony is that I HATE college football. Then again, this is just boiling down all the best players from college that will move on and hopefully make impacts on new teams that I actually DO CARE ABOUT! The patriots traded down and took some players I know nothing about, but hopefully in a few months I will know what they can do and hopefully that is get the Patriots to another Super Bowl win!!
I had this picture saved for awhile but hadn't used it. Anytime I did, it just didn't quite seem to work the way I wanted to so I just let it sit in a folder in my D'archives til I had something worthy plot wise to meld together perfectly. It probably was Wendy's preferences that helped the story develop. Being submissive but drawing other people into that trap seemed like a great idea and it worked well with the photo. With the model right in the middle, it gave me the good balance to have both the mirror and her dialog bounce back and forth across the surface, without killing the flow of text .. and while it ping pongs back and forth, you have to keep looking at her face and body, drawing you in further.
While at first I thought it was a basic caption, I think it does much more than meets the eye. There is no doubt that the picture is what sells the caption .. its a sizzling picture! But I think the story and design makes a great framework around it, and really enhances it in a way that another approach might not have elevated it as much as this does.
I am glad that Wendy enjoyed it, and its gotten a few more comments than most of my recent work:
What a wonderful job, to help other girls be free. Thank you Dee, it is perfect. Also an amazing coincidence as I was working on mirror series for you as well.Thank you dear, it means so much to me. Kisses, Wendy.I am hoping to get some captioning done tomorrow, though if its nice out that might just fly out the window. I have such spring fever and the need for some good weather to shine upon my head! Maybe I can do a bit of both?!? Perhaps we'll also have a posting here on Saturday night or Sunday. Keep popping in and maybe there will be something new awaiting you!
and if you aren't in the mood for metal, I give you the following somewhat obscure song from Sparks
Which would probably be a good song inspiration for a TG caption!
