Gohan and Ashido

Alright, so this is a Mini Commission nominated through my Patreon. The Patron here wanted Gohan in a “scissors” position with Mina Ashido from My Hero Academia. Since it’s a Mini Commish, though, only her legs are visible here… The pink skin is meant to convey her identity, but I was a little worried it wouldn’t be clear (if I saw Gohan with a pink woman, I’d probably assume it was Android 21?), so I threw the vest from her superhero costume over the back of the couch. Anyway, hope you all enjoy. ^_^

Also, I decided to go ahead and tag this pic as being part of the Xoverse. I haven’t done much with Gohan in the Xoverse yet, but one idea I liked was that Xoverse Gohan is a U.A. student alongside the MHA cast, under the superhero identity Great Saiyaman. Since I based  the background colors in this pic on the couches in the U.A. dorm I figured there’s no reason not to let this be canon in that setting.

Arella Character Ask 2

In the weeks approaching Mother’s Day, Raven found herself without any clue what to get her mother back in Azarath. Their relationship had been forever changed since she and Beast Boy had visited her a while back, but that only made her desire to get her mother something special even stronger. She had tried talking to Beast Boy about it, but he was predictably unhelpful. Then, with only a few days left before the maternal holiday, Raven and B.B. sat down for a movie night. They popped some popcorn and sat down to watch Requiem for a Dream, a movie Raven had been meaning to watch for a while, but Beast Boy had never heard of. They both had different reactions to the bulk of the film, but they clicked on one scene at the end. As Jennifer Connely found herself surrounded by screaming business men, throwing dollars onto her sticky, naked body, Raven looked over to Beast Boy. He looked back, a wry smile on his face as he’d had the same idea. Arella’s Mother’s Day gift was decided.

MomSwap – Cindy and Willow

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope all of you who are able get the chance to spend some time with your mother today.

It’s been a while, but I went on a bit of a kick on A Kind of Magic in early 2016. I knew when I started this series I wanted to bring Willow and Cindy back for MomSwap, since I never did get around to drawing them together back then (was more focused on pairing Tom with them at the time). Now’s the time, though! This is another one of those shows where I’m less confident in how my approach works with the art style, but I think I did better with them now than I had in the past. I might try and bring these characters (especially Willow) back into my rotation more often if anyone would like to see more of them.

Ikumi Mito NHML

 

So I watched Food Wars a while ago, and found myself liking it a lot more than I’d expected to. Similarly, I thought Nikumi here would be just eye candy without much character, but she ended up being one of my favorite characters in the whole series (but also eye candy, Food Wars isn’t shy about fanservice).I thought I’d do a lot of Food Wars stuff while I was watching it, but that ended up not happening for one reason or another. I get a second chance now that Nikumi (Soma’s nickname for Ikumi Mito) won the NHML raffle this month. I actually did a handful of sketches of these two together, since I had some old interest in them kicked up again. No promises, but there’s a chance one or two of those might end up fleshed out a bit for future pics (or I might forget about Food Wars altogether again, who knows). Anyway, I picked this one to use for the NHML since it showed off the most of Nimumi’s body, I think, and I hope you all like it.

With this post, NHML nominations for the month of June are now open. For those who don’t know, I’ll run down the rules real quick. Nominations are limited to one per person. You can nominate any female character you want, provided I have not drawn her within the past calendar year (though I prefer characters I’ve never drawn, period). Previous NHML winners are not eligible for a second time. Nominees must also not be from the same franchise as this month’s winner, Food Wars. If you violate any of those rules, I’ll let you know, and you can nominate someone else. I know it can be hard to keep track of these things. You may nominate by either commenting in the cBox, commenting on this post, or emailing me (Nearphotison2010@yahoo.com). I’ll compile a list of the nominees in the sidebar of this site, and then on June 1st I will use a randomizer to select the winning character who I will proceed to draw sometime that month. I look forward to seeing who you all nominate this time around!

Vegeta Character Ask 2

First of all, let me apologize for Vegeta’s rudeness here. I don’t think he fully gets (or cares) that the Patrons asking these questions keep the Near Hentai Studios open.
So I had the idea for how to handle this Ask pretty much immediately. Basically, I didn’t want Vegeta to choose, and I think it makes for a better visual anyway if he just refuses to and says “both”. It’s been a long time since I’ve drawn all three of these guys together, so I hope you all enjoy the little family reunion.

Hayato and Daimonyama

This is an Epic Tier commission done through my Patreon, featuring Hayato Hayasugi and Tsuranuki Daimonyama from the anime Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion. I’ve been anticipating a commission along these lines for a while, as this Patron has been particularly interested in Shinkalion and talked about it a lot on my Discord. I watched the first episode of it since I knew I’d end up being commissioned to draw some of the characters at some point, and it’s cute. The show’s a pretty straightforward giant robot kids anime, where the robots are all famous Japanese trains that transform into their battle forms. I don’t know if I’ll watch any more, but I did see some potential for pics that might come up outside of commissions (though I wouldn’t be surprised if we ended up with more Shinkalion commissions as well). The pose here was left up to me (the client just specified which boys to use, and to have Hayato’s robot buddy Shashot watching on with heart eyes) and I tried to have some fun with them. Hope you all enjoy the pic!

ben_10mil – Traveling to Planet Namek 08

Alright, this one’s finally done. I hope you all enjoyed the ride, but I think I’m going to take a little break from coloring ben_10mil’s work. There’s just too much pressure to get pages out with these comics, and I’d rather focus on other projects for the time being. Maybe some day I’ll come around to color a different one, we’ll see, but right now I associate ben_10mil’s comics more with stress than anything. As always, I’ve included the original version of this page down below.

Marth Character Ask 1

So, I feel like this Ask was probably fishing to see Marth paired up with a guy from another series (Asks along these lines usually are). I was having trouble settling on something that I liked, though, but I also felt like drawing Marth, so I made a compromise. Marth’s a character I’m really fond of, despite not having played any of his games, and I’d like to take a few more stabs at him again in the future.

Mia Mezzenga Bio

Like I mentioned when I did Tia, I wanted to get both Mace and Jackie’s moms out in bio form. Mia’s Mace’s mom, who we’ve seen briefly once before. She’s lead a bit of an interesting life, I think, though these days she spends most of her time either working or partying. It’s possible her parenting style has contributed to Mace being the way he is, though that’s not really a problem. After all, the Mace and Jackie series wouldn’t be nearly as interesting if he spent all his time staying home studying or something.
