Here’s the first of the November Character Asks, this one directed at Beast Boy (though Raven makes an appearance as well). As much as I’ve drawn these two, I haven’t really gotten the chance to show them in their uniforms, and I thought this might be a fun chance to do this while also having them flaunt their assets.
Month: November 2017
Here’s the third page of ben_10mil’s comic “Surprise” colored. I decided to go a different route with the reveal of the second panel (as you can see below, the original version had little lightning bolts). I think the starburst here looks a bit better, and is also just funnier to me. Hopefully you guys like it, too.
So in early 2016 I had a commission client who wanted to purchase a few random manga pages to be colored. Even though this wasn’t exactly my normal style of commission, I agreed to, and the first was an Asuka/Shinji page from a doujin called ASUKA28. I colored it, and the client liked it so well that instead of doing the next page he had planned (which was from a completely different doujin) he asked me to do another page from ASUKA28. At the time he seemed very interested in getting the entire doujin colored, and so I sat on the two pages I had colored for a long time. However, I didn’t hear from him again, and even if I did I don’t know if I’d be able to take on a project like this again today. I just have too much else going on. I didn’t think it was worth keeping it squirreled away, so I decided to release the two pages I’d colored here for you guys. If you’re interested in checking out the full doujin, you can find it here: https://hitomi.la/galleries/764286.html (or just search for “Saigado ASUKA28” if you don’t like this host).
This page took longer than I expected due in large part to the position used. In most of the panels it wasn’t a factor, but a couple of them proved especially time consuming for me, and took multiple drafts to get to look right. Hopefully the final product was worth all the work. I know these pages come out slower than many of you would like, but I can assure you I’m doing my best to get them out as quickly as I can. Page eight is already under construction, though I’m sure it’ll be a while before it’s complete.
This is a picture drawn and colored by an artist known as Er Ar. The story behind this pic is that a couple months ago, Er approached me wanting to do an art trade. I wasn’t 100% on board with the idea, because I knew I likely wouldn’t be able to hold up my end of the trade any time soon, but Er talked me into it by promising that I could take all the time I needed. Predictably, other stuff kept getting in the way, to the point where I eventually offered to pay for the the other half (which was done pretty quickly) as a commission since I was worried about finishing my own. While Er at first told me that wouldn’t be necessary, I guess his financial situation changed and he accepted that arrangement. So I paid his commission price, and figured I might as well share the picture here with you guys.
Here is the One-Shot comic page from October, and the last one I’ll have directly posted to Patreon. At the time that it went up on there it was very timely, but of course the One-Shots get released publicly a month after the fact, so it’s a bit late for Halloween now. I think the picture’s still cute, though, and hopefully you guys can enjoy it even if it’s no longer the spookiest time of the year.
Things are winding down for these three as day breaks outside. This is the penultimate page of One Night in Azarath. Next month the comic will publicly finish as you guys get to see the comic page Patreon sponsors got to see recently. After that, we’ll delve into a new ongoing comic written by my Patreon backers.
For my Halloween pic this year, I’m introducing two new characters in the ghost girls you all saw before. I didn’t want to completely leave out all of my other spooky OC ladies, though, so I’m doing this pic of Sophia Huesos that’ll post publicly on November 2nd for Día de los Muertos (since that’s the source of her inspiration, anyway). This is the first time I’ve ever drawn Sophia’s breasts, since they were covered up in her previous two appearances, and I want to thank Anya Lykke for the idea to give her spider web designs around her nipples.
Here’s Killua’s second Character Ask. I was pretty happy with this one, despite it not being very risque visually. Since I knew I wasn’t going to have Killua doing much for this answer, I decided to try dressing him in a different outfit (one he wears briefly in the anime) that I thought was super cute.
