Camp Buddy

Hiro Akiba Character Ask 2

This is an Ask I’ve had submitted a few months in a row now, but I wasn’t sure how to handle it. I felt the answer was… really obvious? And I don’t know any other way Hiro could’ve responded that would’ve been satisfying. I also didn’t really like the idea of drawing him cooking or handling food in the answer, personally, but I decided a simple show of affection would be cute.

Yoichi Yukimura Character Ask 2

I’m three for three on crack crossover pairings so far in Asks for this set!
So, I had some reservations about how to handle this one. Yoichi’s very gay in his game, but everyone in the Studio is pansexual. It doesn’t seem like to much of a stretch to me that he’d be willing to get with a girl here and there, but I don’t think he’d be into tsundere types. Yoichi himself is basically the tsundere of Camp Buddy, and it seems unlikely to me that a tsundere would be drawn to another… What Yoichi’s to embarassed to say in his answer here is he’s drawn more to people like Keitaro. Kipo here is a similar sort of protagonist, I think. Honest and compassionate, wanting to be friends with everyone, I think she’s got a lot in common with Keitaro, so I can see Yoichi connecting with her in a similar way. Also, her purple color scheme matches his well. I almost didn’t draw them actually fucking, just standing around, but in the end I decided to go ahead and go all-in with it. If any Camp Buddy fans are upset seeing Yoichi with a girl, all I can say is sorry, but I draw canonically straight characters in yaoi porn all the time. A tiny bit of the reverse won’t hurt anyone.

Hiro Akiba Character Ask 1

So the concept behind this Ask is kinda an old one, and one I’ve discussed on Discord a bit, but I know some folks have been anxiously awaiting for the talking points of those talks to be brought to life. In the Near Hentai Studios I do imagine cliques/clubs of various character types forming, and the cooking characters getting together to prepare food for the Studio is a very old concept I haven’t really gotten the chance to explore. It makes sense to me Hiro would gravitate towards those characters, and Yukihira especially seems to me like someone he’s get along with. Like he says in the Ask, he’s got a lot in common with Aiden, so it’s easy for me to picture him idolizing him in a similar way (even if, due to screwy anime ages, Yukihira is actually younger than Hiro despite looking much older).

Yoichi Yukimura Character Ask 1

I couldn’t really, like, illustrate an answer to both of the questions here… Plus I just didn’t have any ideas I was happy with for the part about Hiro, which is why Yoichi mentions Hiro making new friends in the studio. For all the Camp Buddy boys, I have some ideas for similar characters they might get along with (like Kiba, here, who shares Yoichi’s passion for dogs). I think looking to shared interests is probably better than trying to match people based on having a similar personality, since I feel like people who are too similar tend to butt heads. If I was gonna pair him with someone who has a similar personality, I probably would’ve used Bakugou, but picturing them hanging out, it just seemed like they’d fight all the time. I feel like personalities like theirs need a calming presence (Kirishima for Bakugoi, Keitaro for Yoichi), and that dynamic works better.
I also felt Yoichi would have to have a nickname for Kiba. I dunno if “triangle-face” is what he’d use (I don’t like that it’s a bit too similar to torch-head), but I felt it would have to be about the markings on his face, and that was the best I could come up with. ^_^;

Hunter x Felix

Here’s another Epic Tier commission off my Patreon. This one features Hunter Springfield and Felix Clermont of Camp Buddy. Hunter’s one of your date-able options in the game, while Felix is more of a side character. They’re both gentle, sweet twink boys, so that’s why they’re paired up here. It seems like there’s been some good response whenever I do Camp Buddy art, so hopefully y’all will enjoy this one two. ^_^

Yoichiro

This is the second of two Master Commissions that came due in July. The Patron behind this pic is the same one who’s been pushing Camp Buddy the previous times I’ve drawn it (and probably future instances, too). Hiro and Yoichi have a cute mutually-instigating relationship where they both keep getting on each other’s nerves (especially if you’re doing a route where you’re dating one of them), and have one scene where they hint possibly fooling around but don’t (usually). The idea for this one was to pair them up in the cabin they all share in the game, so here they are. Hope you all enjoy!

Keitaro Nagame Character Ask 1

So this is Keitaro, the player character in Blits Games’ Camp Buddy. I’ve had a growing section of my followers expressing interest in this game and its characters, and Keitaro made it in as one of the boys in June’s One-Shot comic. I spent a lot of time thinking about how to answer this one… I had a long list of characters I could imagine him pairing up with. Then I realized that, due to him being a player character in a dating sim, he’s really compatible with almost any personality type. A version of the Camp Buddy story exists for him partnering with a variety of different personality types, all of which are equally plausible for him. So I decided to do a more vague answer with several boys… First I was gonna do a blowbang-type pic (and I might still use the sketch from that version), but changed to this ’cause it fit into the Ask picture size better. They were originally anon cocks, but while I was inking in Photoshop I decided to add some identifying clothing (and in Kirishima’s case, his hair) to make it more fun.

June ’19 Patreon One-Shot

Here’s the One-Shot selected from scripts submitted by my supporters over on Patreon. The idea for this script was just to see a bunch of boys thrown together. Panels one and four were left up to commenters, while panel three specified only Nagisa’s appearance and commenters were to nominate boys to pair him with. Three people commented on this script before it won, and I used one suggestion from each of them (one person’s panel one, one person’s panel four, and one person’s partner for Nagisa). The boy fucking Nagisa is Keitaro Nagame, by the way, the protagonist of indy yaoi dating sim “Camp Buddy”. I’ve had a growing number of my fans get into the game, so there’s a chance they’ll be pushing for more content of the characters in that game in the future.
