I think I’ve mentioned before not being crazy about Bakugou and Deku as a couple, but Kirishima’s a much better fit for him in my mind. Nothing against anyone’s preferred ship, of course, but for my tastes this is a much cuter and more fitting pairing. There’s also just something about Bakugou’s personality that makes seeing him on bottom work well for me, and hopefully you all will agree.
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/
So I enjoy a lot of homemade porn, and I’ve seen a lot of girls do a shot similar to this. I got the urge to convey something similar, and after a little thought settled on Ochaco Uraraka from My Hero Academia. For some reason this fit her in my mind, and honestly I feel like I haven’t drawn her as much as I would like. I usually get a little nervous portraying characters in pics where their face isn’t visible, but I decided to double down and just show the back of her head. I think her hair design is distinct enough that she’s still recognizable.
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.
The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for July 2018 is Mandalay of the Wild, Wild Pussycats in My Hero Academia. When deciding what to do with her, I went back and forth on either something with her young nephew, Kota, or her teammates Pixie-Bob and Ragdoll. In the end I decided to do both, leading to an unusually crowded picture for an NHML entry. Mandalay gets to be the center of attention, since she’s the featured lady. I enjoyed all four of these characters during their time on the show, and I wouldn’t mind returning to them some time in the future.
With this entry released, it’s now time to start collecting nominations for next month. The rules are pretty simple, everyone gets one nomination of any female character they’d like, so long as I haven’t drawn her in the past year. Preferably she’ll be someone I’ve never drawn, but if it’s been over a year since the last time then that’s fine. She also cannot be a previous NHML winner, even if her win was over a year ago and I haven’t drawn her again since. Also this month I’m adding that she can’t be from the same franchise as the current winner. Last month’s was also from My Hero Academia, and I’d just like to avoid having the NHML get too repetitive. I will compile a list of all the nominees (visible on the side bar of this site), and on the first of August I will use an online randomizer to randomly pick one name from the list to draw some time during the month.
Usually I say you can nominate by commenting below or using my cBox, but during the weekend I’m posting this I am out of town visiting friends and going to a convention. This means I won’t be on as much and there’s a chance I’ll miss nominations made in the cBox. You’re still allowed to use it, of course, but if you’re nominating during the weekend that this post went up then you might be better off using the comments. Cheers!
I’m not sure where I got it in my head that Mina Ashido from My Hero Academia was, like, a gymnast or something. Maybe it’s just ’cause her superhero outfit kinda looks like 80’s workout clothes, but at some point I just started assuming she’d be the flexible type. So when I saw a girl in this pose I thought it’d be a cute excuse to draw Mina again. I don’t do solo pics often, but hopefully I can do more with her and a partner soon. It’d be fun to try out more gymnast-style poses.
