Character Asks

Zushi Character Ask 1

So this Character Ask was a bit interesting, just because I think the asker and I have very different reads on this character. I don’t really have any interest in seeing Zushi bottoming for Gon or Killua, and the more I thought about it, the more it seemed he would be intimidated by a prospect like that. If you look at his appearance in Gon’s Ask about him, Zushi’s terrified enough of fucking the two of them, but being on the other end must be pretty frightening considering he views them both as monsters. Nice, friendly monsters, but monsters nonetheless.

Also, for those interested, the fifth part of my look back at the superhero characters I made when I was a kid is here:

Son Gohan Character Ask 5

This was an interesting Ask, since it’s basically just asking if I’m planning a DBZ/Boondocks crossover. Honestly I don’t spend much time planning or thinking about crossover work, but Gohan’s answer here is a pretty realistic breakdown of how likely it is to happen.

In other news, I recently wrapped up my video series looking back at my old superhero universe from my youth. For those who don’t remember, this is a video series where I took these drawings I did throughout my childhood and up through college that were all for a planned shared superhero universe. I talk about what I can remember about each character and what I had planned for them. I was posting these videos on the old site, but when my Google account was taken down I couldn’t access the YouTube they were on any more. I resumed the series once I got access back, and now that it’s done I’m going to just post one video a day at the bottom of my daily posts here until the series is done. These videos contain no nudity or sex or anything like that, but I thought some folks might find them interesting since they’re older drawings and creative ideas from various stages of my developmental years. For convenience’s sake, I’ll be adding the tag “Superhero Retrospective” to all posts with these videos in them (to make them easier to find later).

Huey and Riley Character Ask 2

Here’s another Character Ask directed at Huey and Riley. This one is asking about their first time together, a subject I had actually been discussing with one of the regulars on my blog not too long ago. I had written up a short outline for Huey and Riley at that time, and basically just paraphrased it here for the answer. I misunderstood the crying part, it seems, as I read it as a sad thing but the Patron later messaged me saying he meant it more as, like, crying from happiness. Oops.

 

Link Character Ask 2

I can’t tell you how close this one came to just Link looking into the camera and saying, “…He’s dead.” The timeframe of the game itself really doesn’t leave much room for Link and Revali to have any sort of physical relationship, as I see it, since before the Calamity Revali dismisses Link and sees him as worthless. After the Calamity… he’s a ghost, and kinda stuck inside this big robot bird, so I still don’t see much room for pairing them up. In the end I hit upon the idea of a Revali toy Link might could enjoy in the time after the game’s story ends.

Harley Quinn Character Ask 1

This Character Ask was a unique one for me. Excluding projects where I was not the artist, I’ve only ever really drawn Harley Quinn in commissions. The version of Harley used in those commissions is her more recent comic design, where she’s bleached like the Joker and has the pink and blue pigtails. However, I’m not really a fan of that design. My favorite version of Batman is still the Bruce Timm one, and so I tend to favor designs (for both Harley and Poison Ivy) that are closer to that approach. I almost used the Bruce Timm art style for this Ask, but decided instead to lean closer to the comic aesthetic but using the designs I prefer. If I draw these two outside of a commission (and I have a few unfinished works that will hopefully go up some day), then it’ll be these versions.

As for Harley’s answer, well, it seemed like the obvious choice to me. Poison Ivy is my favorite person to pair Harley with (followed by Dick Grayson, tbh). Despite the way the question was phrased, I do not view Harley and Joker as a sexual pairing (Harley may want that, but I can’t help but read Joker as asexual and disinterested). When my friend Anya suggested the “plant” pun that just sealed the deal for how she’d reply.

Izuku Midoriya Character Ask 6

This Character Ask was kinda interesting for me. I mulled over for a bit how I thought Deku would answer, because the truth is Shoto is one of those characters I can kinda see going either way with Midoriya. I haven’t really drawn the two of them together by themselves before, but I like the idea that they can both switch it up. Then I thought about when they fought each other, and the sort of relationship they have in the source material, and it hit upon me that in sex, like in superhero training, they could push each other by being similarly talented. That kinda led me to answering it this way, where neither one is really on top or bottom and they’re trying something new.
