At first this response was just going to be Deku talking to the camera, but after some thought I figured it’d be more interesting if he was demonstrating his point. I don’t have much more to add for this one, since I think he sums things up well enough himself.
So, this Character Ask is in reference to a previous one I did directed at Kota. It seems like Kota and Midoriya have grown closer since then. I don’t know how much there is to their relationship beyond the physical, but Kota’s found he quite enjoys servicing Deku, and Deku seems to be alright with being on the other end from how I usually draw him.
Also, here’s a new episode of “Near Talk”. This episode I mostly talk about my own experiences getting started as an artist and try to offer a bit of advice where I can.
This is the first of a two-pic series focusing on Mei Hatsume and Izuku Midoriya of My Hero Academia. I always liked Mei and wanted to draw her, so when I was looking for something fun and simple to do between larger projects she came to mind. I just love her expression and general attitude. I don’t know when I’ll get around to the follow-up image, but I know what I want it to be. It’ll come around some time.
Also, I’m very excited to announce the release of chapter two of Stained Capes, my ongoing hero corruption fiction story. If you’re interested, you can find it here: http://nearhentai.com/literature/stained-capes-chapter-two-the-breaking-of-nightwave/
Here is the One-Shot comic page selected by my Patreon supporters last month. This is another one of those “four unconnected panels” ones, but it did give me the excuse to finally do some Assassination Classroom work, as well as use Clementine again in something other than a Character Ask. Hope everyone likes the pic.
Also, I did another Q&A video for my Patrons recently. Several of the questions in this one related specifically to Patreon issues, but I still thought some of you might find the video interesting so I’m sharing it here.
So in My Hero Academia, Deku has this little notebook where he writes down information on the superpowers of the people around him for studying purposes. The kanji floating around him translate to something like “mutter” and crop up while he mutters to himself about what he’s writing/reading. My original plan was to have him scribbling down notes on Kirishima’s hardening ability, but then I realized that I’d accidentally drawn him reading instead of writing… I also didn’t have any idea what he’d actually be saying, so I decided to just have him reading the notebook instead. Probably he already has notes on Krisihima’s quirk and is just reviewing while studying the effect with his feet.
Here is last month’s One-Shot comic, as selected by my supporters over on Patreon. I suspect this pairing was inspired in part by the memes and jokes around the idea that Deku’s hairstyle is like a cross between Gon and Killua’s (Killua’s style with Gon’s color). Regardless, the boys had a good time with him here, and mark another of Near Hentai’s top sluts off their checklist.
Also, here’s the tenth installment of my video series looking back at the superhero world and characters I built when I was younger:
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.
