I love this pic, when I saw it I saw two of characters of my next cómic, they look like them (Rick & Michi) .... it's awesome. I want to ask you if I can change a little this pic to make my characters, only to my personal use. Not a business.
You see, the power of the piece lies in what is under the initial sexual appeal. We see one of the boys holding onto a chain, which is connected to a collar which the other boy is wearing. At first, this seems to be purely an act of sexual deviance. But what lies under this? Is it a visual metaphor for the struggles the artist endures in his daily life? Does he feel chained into a relationship which gives him sexual pleasure, but always leaves him feeling emotionally devastated? It would be foolish to claim knowledge of the true meaning of this art; for we can only wonder.

Closing Comments: A work of both nearly unmatched artistic ability and potential emotional meaning. I haven't seen such a piece in all my years as a professional critic, and I doubt many will trump this particular one. I applaud Archiri. Bravo.
