Anya Forger Character Ask 1

I don’t usually pick up this type of question, on account of it having too thin of a basis and also being a bit too specific. However, I answered this one for a couple of reasons. One is that I felt I needed to get an Ask for this Subscriber, but also I thought I could tackle a couple of different things here. One is the fact that Anya, despite her appearance, is not at child-level intelligence in the Studio and as to get into character to do the baby talk she does in the show. Another is that I thought this would be a good chance to hint at Anya’s opinion of Makima, as what she describes here is basically how I see her relationship with any of Denji’s acquaintances (at this time). With Anya’s abilities I’m sure she’s self-censoring a lot with her statement here, as I’m sure she has pretty strong opinions on Makima and Denji’s relationship with her. Originally it was going to just be Anya here talking, but I decided to go ahead and have her bring in Nimona just so she could weigh in with her take, too.

Asami Sato Character Ask 1

This Ask is in reference to “Chi-Chi’s Fan Appreciation Tour,” an incomplete story in the Literature section of the site. Asami is one of several Studio residents who wins a fan trip with Chi-Chi in the story. I don’t know if this Subscriber had that in mind with this question, as I suspect they might’ve just been hoping to see Asami with any random new character I thought she’d pair well with. However, I don’t have many good opportunities to “canonize” written stories set in the Studio like this. I think this is the first time I’ve drawn any pairing from this story, although I can’t be certain. Regardless, I thought it’d make for a fun answer.

Nappa Character Ask 1

I can recall at least one time Nappa and Vegeta meet after Nappa’s death, maybe there are others I’m forgetting, but I think in the Studio they’d probably have a slightly different dynamic. I don’t really see Vegeta putting the gang back together with either Nappa or Raditz, personally, but I’m sure they’ve reconciled a bit. I really don’t think Nappa would have the balls to try and go behind Vegeta’s back at all, but I do think Vegeta would be fine with letting Bulma use Nappa for some good side dick.

Chilchuck Live

This is one-half of a Lord Tier commission, featuring Chilchuck from Delicious in Dungeon (or Dungeon Meshi). The idea here was to do something similar to an old Mini Commission featuring Ashido and Gohan, but with Goku instead. The commenters and stream title were picked out by the commissioner, but the actual comments were written by me.
I’ve been toying with doing some kind of Chilchuck/Laios pic for a while, but I can’t say for sure if or when I’ll get to it. Thanks to this commission, Chilchuck ended up getting in first from the DiD cast. Learning about phones, how to use one, and then hosting his own stream all so soon after getting brought into the Studio is pretty impressive.


Megara NHML

I’m not sure if I’ve talked about it outside some Discord convos, but I have a list of Disney leading ladies I’d like to eventually fully cover. Megara’s on that list, and has been on my radar for a bit, even getting included in the First Shoot polls. Unfortunately, nothing came together for her until now, with this NHML win. I’m happy to finally get her drawn, and while I could’ve paired her with Phil or Hades, I decided to go the simple wholesome route and give her her Wonderboy instead.

With this post, NHML nominations for the month of August are now open. For those who don’t know, I’ll run down the rules real quick. Nominations are limited to one per person. You can nominate any female character you want, provided I have not drawn her within the past calendar year (though I prefer characters I’ve never drawn, period). Previous NHML winners are not eligible for a second time. Nominees must also not be from the same franchise as this month’s winner, Hercules. If you violate any of those rules, I’ll let you know, and you can nominate someone else. I know it can be hard to keep track of these things. You may nominate by either commenting in the cBox, commenting on this post, or emailing me ( I’ll compile a list of the nominees in the sidebar of this site, and then on August 1st I will use a randomizer to select the winning character who I will proceed to draw sometime that month. I look forward to seeing who you all nominate this time around!
