So at first I thought it’d be best to put Gon in an outfit like a french maid or whatever, some kind of stereotypical fetish outfit. But then I remembered the Gold Dust Girl, a trading car/video game NPC in the Greed Island arc which is basically the only character Killua shows attraction to in the anime (that I can recall). This joke in the show is probably just based on the fact that her trading card image shows her naked in a tub, but regardless I thought it’d be cute if he projected that interest to Gon by wanting to see him cosplay her. Also it was fun to put Gon’s hair in a different style.
So this Ask was one I went back and forth on for a number of reasons. This was this Patron’s second question this month, and the reason he deleted his original one in exchange for this one was that I let it slip that the question he’d asked was only going to be a “character talking to camera” type thing (probably kinda like what this one is, if you removed Raven from the picture completely). Knowing that he wanted something more sexual, I tried my best to think of sexy presents (and actual presents, nothing that would really be a present for BB or anything like that). I kinda gave up on that ’cause it just didn’t feel right. Instead I thought it’d be funny if Beast Boy went out of his way to try and get something thoughtful for Raven (I can almost picture a montage in the style of the show of Beast Boy going through mysterious book shops and maybe even exploring ancient lost civilizations and such in a really funny way). She likes musty old books of magic and sorcery, right? Naturally he thought she’d like this one, and she did, but as we can see this book contains more than just words inside its pages. Anyway, I was really happy with this final concept, even if it’s not a full-blown XXX type thing or whatever. Also, I just really enjoyed getting to draw Beast Boy with a more exaggerated comedic face like the kind he’d sometimes pull out in the show.
Horohoro doesn’t socialize much with the other talent around Near Hentai studios, preferring to just hang out with Yoh and the others from Shaman King. Even so, he seems to know who the most popular talents are, at least. I tried doing this one as “standing around doing nothing but still naked” like before, with a shot of his cute little butt. Hope y’all like it!
I went back and forth on how to handle this one for a long time. I felt like the asker was probably hoping to see either Meowth fucking Pikachu or Pikachu fucking Meowth, but something about that just didn’t sit right with me. Given the relationship Meowth and the rest of Team Rocket has on the show, where they’re mostly antagonists but occasionally allies, I can see how shipping could occur between members of the two groups. Meowth was even a part of Ash’s team for a few episodes in Best Wishes (though it was ultimately just a ruse). So maybe somewhere along the way they would’ve had the chance to hook up, but ultimately the status quo is that Meowth wants to catch Pikachu, and so Pikachu would likely never trust him enough to consent (outside of those rare moments where they’re allies), and Meowth’s attempts at catching him are ineffective enough that he probably wouldn’t get the chance to do much in a non-con type of way. So, this is the response I felt best reflected their relationship.
So my version of Blackfire basically just exists to play with Starfire. I don’t really think of her in any other capacity, so her interactions/relationships with other Titans in my work is based purely on how she can use them to toy with her sister. This here’s a good example of that. Originally I had toyed with the idea of Robin being in a full Starfire cosplay for this one, but honestly this drawing was already more complicated than the vast majority of Character Asks I do so I decided against it. Instead I just had Blackfire slap a wig on him, specifically the one she wore clubbing in her debut episode when she was trying to take Starfire’s place so that Star could take hers.
So, like I’ve mentioned before with some of the other Character Asks directed at these two, Riley is in complete denial about his relationship with his brother. He can write off the physical pleasure of sex as a mutually beneficial arrangement (in my work they’ve both switched between top and bottom with each other, and Riley secretly enjoys both), but when it comes to displays of affection he gets too uncomfortable. Unfortunately his homophobia makes it hard for him to entertain the idea of things like kisses, or snuggling, or anything of that nature.
I liked doing this one. ^_^ This is the first time I’ve been able to actually run the answer I wrote past the person it’s being asked towards. The Noel that works for Near Hentai studios is obviously different than the real life Noel Cypress, but it was still cool to see her reaction to this answer.
The interesting thing about this Ask for me was the fact that, like Huey points out, he has appeared in at least one threesome with us here at Near Hentai. While I think there’s plenty of potential partners for Huey, outside of his core group of Riley, Cindy and Jazmine it’d kinda be a case-by-case basis. Those three are the ones he’s had the most experience with and would be the most comfortable around, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t work with people outside that group if the right situation cropped up.
