"When the generation engineered for mind-machine interface reached its maturity in the 2120s, the modest trade in Genesis-design "bootlegs" exploded. While the problems with the jack were a tightly guarded secret, anyone could have predicted the problems with finding, hiring, and keeping happy enough upper-class children for even a quarter the applications of jack technology. A generation of bored, indulged teenagers suddenly discovered that their bloodline gained them entry to dozens of illicit clubs and bordellos, where they were freely offered alcohol, drugs, entertainment... and, of course, women. As the trade grew the bordellos grew too, in complexity, diversity, and ugliness. Entertainments designed to draw in the increasingly jaded upper class expanded. Any taste was catered to, so long as a semen sample was the result. Into these "baby factories" was fed a stream of vengee bodies, and out of them came two -- the dead, used up by customers or the factories, and the children, bound for the increasingly massive slave markets....." -- From A Brief History of the Gene Lords
I did this pic ages ago, as part of the background worldbuilding for my comic, and was pleasantly surprised at how it came out. Very much so. It's probably the first outdoor shot where I was decently happy with the lighting, and one of the very few where everything -- pose, character design, set -- really, genuinely worked out the way I wanted it. I'm not on the galleries much any more, thanks to lack of time, but I felt the need to share such a rarity with somebody.
