I’m not sure if this Patron already knew when asking this, but the first time I drew Matt and T.K. together it was a three-way pic that also included Nancy here. It was meant to combine two of my favorite pic concepts I don’t see too often, smaller boys topping older ones, and MILFs pimping out their sons. With that in mind, I felt like this response was probably the most apt. I don’t at this time have any intention of doing anything with Hiroaki Ishida, since he doesn’t fit into the dynamic I’ve been running with so far.
I feel like it’s worth noting that Izzy’s answer here isn’t the definitive truth, only his opinion. ^_^ I’ve had this pose sitting waiting to be used for some time now, and for whatever reason when I was looking for a question to answer I got the urge to plug Izzy in for this response. I feel like there’s a good chance the Patron was hoping to see Izzy topping whomever he picked, but hopefully they won’t be too disappointed with this outcome.
My first thought reading the question for this Ask was Jessie’s original response. Jenny and Joy both seem like returning characters, but there’s actually very few times any of them make return appearances in the show. Jennys even get unique designs (especially in later seasons), though I went with the more standard design for recognizability’s sake. I had a few different ideas for how to convey the concept here, but in the end this is what I went with.
I don’t have too much to say about this Ask, sorry. I feel like the One Piece characters who are in the NH Studio would likely still hang out together in their new environment, so she probably wouldn’t miss them. Maybe some of them I haven’t drawn, but I’ve got a good chunk of the crew employed. ^_^ Her first appearance in my work was a crossover pic with Videl, so if she has any friends outside of the Star Hat crew, it’s probably her? (Though the Ask wasn’t specifically about friends, just asking how she’s doing.)
I had a bit of trouble coming up with an answer on this Ask. I thought about it for a long time, before eventually just letting Killua voice my thoughts on the matter in his own words. I’m not 100% sure what the asker was hoping for in a response, but I think Killua sums things up well here. Killua and Gon are good friends, and they help each other out mutually. So it doesn’t feel quite right for Killua to just, like, do something for Gon to thank him.
I don’t have too much to say about this Ask, since I think it kinda speaks for itself. The Zangya bit comes from an old conversation on my Discord (which I touched on in Zangya’s Studio Tour appearance). After that, I thought it’d be funny if Mina just couldn’t stop thinking of girls she’d like to work with, hence the gag where her speech bubble goes off the page.
So I intentionally put this one off until after Christmas for two reasons. One was, like Frosty says in the pic, I just had a bunch of Christmas content already lined up for the holiday and didn’t need more. The second reason was, I wanted something interesting for the answer portion. I feel like just having them go, “Sure!” and then fuck is pretty boring, and going the opposite route and having them come up with some reason why they couldn’t would be disappointing, I think. This way they can talk about being past the holiday itself, but hey, at least it’s still winter so Frosty hasn’t melted away yet.
With this Ask I thought it’d be a little fun to highlight the different ways Gohan and Zangya approach a problem. Gohan’s figuring they’d have to run experiments to answer faithfully, but Zangya doesn’t have any concerns about that and just trusts her gut. Of course, if she thought about it more, Zangya would probably be all for an ass-eating competition with Gohan. Grab a handful of people from around the studio and then have them compare the techniques of both her and Gohan. I’m sure she’d have a great time of it, but for the moment she’s too caught up in her ego and bravado to realize just what Gohan’s proposing.
So this Ask could’ve been answered with just Goku talking to the camera, but then I thought it’d be neat to try and show him with some random crossover boy (even though he doesn’t really have an actual answer to the question. I ended up adding two more boys just ’cause… I’d never accept an Ask that demanded this many characters, but since it was my own decision it’s okay. ^_^; I went with three random boys, trying my best to avoid any sort of theme or anything with the selections. Just three boys who would be in the studio. I guess Goku’s pretty popular around the NH Studio, and he’s such an easy-going guy that he just goes along with whatever.
