Applebridge

Sunkissed Youth, Page 01

So it was a few months ago that I got into a discussion on my Discord about my desire to do a long-form Applebridge comic. That is, a comic set in the Applebridge universe that uses a slower build instead of the usual 4-5 panel stories I tell with those characters. This has been a background project for a while, and will continue to be one until I’ve finished a few more of my ongoing comics. This means it won’t get frequent updates or anything, at least not for the time being, but it will be something I work on when I’m in the mood for it (if that makes sense).

 

This comic follows the story of Kobi, who just graduated from Applebridge High and is on a group beach trip with his crush, Brooke. He knows this will likely be his last chance to tell her how he really feels, as she’s going to be leaving Applebridge for college soon. The comic’s focus is going to be straight for now, but if it goes well I have a second chapter planned that’s more yaoi/bi.

 

This week I wasn’t able to find the time to record a Near Talk episode, but hopefully I’ll have a new episode next Saturday. However, I am excited to announce something I’ve been wanting to introduce to Near Hentai for a while now: Erotica! Or lit porn, or whatever you wanna call it. Right now the literature section only has one story, the first chapter to an ongoing storyline called Stained Capes. However, I hope to expand it with more stories, not only by me, but by some other writer friends. Since this site’s dedicated just to my work, the stories featured in this section are going to be limited to only those written by me or those written based on my art. It’s egocentric, I know, but it’s my site. ^_^ You can find the lit section in the link above the cBox on the right-hand side of the page, and I’ll be sure to announce in the art posts whenever a new story has been added.

Mickie Cummins Bio

Here’s another biography for the Applebridge series! This one’s for Applebridge’s resident futa and the partner of Terry Birch, Mickie Cummins. Her bio lets us fill in a few of the gaps from what information I’ve shared about her before, since I’ve mentioned a few things in her handful of appearances but haven’t explained them in as much detail as I have here. I’m trying to do at least one of these bios each month (though who knows, it’s certainly not set in stone). I haven’t decided who will get the next one, but there’s still a lot of characters to work through!

Loren Cox Bio

Took me longer than I thought, but here’s the third Applebridge Bio page. This one’s for Loren Cox, who’s quickly become quite popular since I first introduced him a while back. He seemed like the natural choice to go with after Mace and Jackie for one of these. I decided to dress him up in the sort of outfit he’d probably wear for a night out on the town trying to pick up guys.

August ’18 Patreon One-Shot

Here is the One-Shot comic selected by my Patrons for August. This is another “each panel is a different pairing” one (as is the one I’ll be making public next month), with an all-yaoi bend this time around. Our first panel features probably the three most popular boys from my Applebridge setting, Loren, Mace and Jackie, while the second panel is Chris with Sonic, Knuckles and Silver (who to the best of my knowledge was never actually in Sonic X). The bottom two panels feature crossovers, with one being the ever-popular DBZ/H×H, and the other a unique Pokémon/Inuyasha/Blue Exorcist blend. Hope you all enjoy!

Jean Spears Character Ask 1

So this Ask is of course in reference to the one other time I drew Jean. Carly Sims, one of Jean’s classmates, recorded him on her phone while he was blowing another boy in class. Maybe later I’ll get to explore Carly’s relationship with Jean a bit more in comic form, but for now they’re at least close enough that Carly later showed him her recording and emailed him a copy that he can enjoy in private.

Mace Mezzenga Bio

I’ve been thinking about doing something like this for a while, and a couple different times people have asked me to do bio pages for the Applebridge characters. The main reason I haven’t before now is just that I don’t really know how to, but… Well, here goes. This is Mace’s bio page, and hopefully I’ll get around to making ones for all the Applebridge characters eventually. 🙂

Loren Cox Character Ask 2

I was super happy to see Loren get not one, but two Character Asks the first month after his debut! Since he seems so popular, I’ll definitely have to think of more excuses to draw him in the future. As for his answer here, Loren’s got a real thing for studly men who can pin him down and fuck him senseless, so Goku is a natural fit out of the characters in the Near Hentai Studios. However, he’s hear rumors about Luffy, who’s also a bit of a newcomer to the studio, which is of course the person he refers to but doesn’t know by name.

Loren Cox Character Ask 1

I’m always really flattered when my OCs get Asks, and Loren seems to be a hit as he has two right after his debut! This one is questioning his success rate with picking up older men to fuck. At first I was gonna have him mid-fuck while answering, but the thing is I’ve had this pose stuck in my head for a while and I decided I didn’t have any better ideas for when to use it. Something about him grinding on the guy through his jeans is really enticing to me.
