So this Ask was one I went back and forth on for a number of reasons. This was this person’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.
