My first thought when approaching this Ask is that Alcina is probably not the tallest lady in the Near Hentai Studios. One could argue that Mt. Lady is cheating here by using her quirk to grow, but I think even without counting superpowers Alcina is still smaller than Aphelandra. However, I really liked the idea of this tall lady having her dynamic flipped on its head, and is now just the size of a fairly large doll next to Mt. Lady. However, Alcina’s still got a bit of a dominant energy, I think, using her feet to pull Mt. Lady’s face in closer while she probes her with her tongue. Even with the size difference she hasn’t lost any of that mommy dom presence people seem to like in her.
I usually try and avoid following the crowd when there’s a big new character everyone’s drawing/cosplaying, but I figure by the time this pic goes public in late April I’ll have safely avoided the label of “au courant”.
I almost drew miss Alcina Dimitrescu in a more anime style, but I’m actually really fond of her face and smile (even more than the whole “tall” thing) and wanted to try and capture the elements of her face I’m attracted to. Not sure how happy I am with the result, but I think she turned out pretty good. I have another sketch of her in my work folder with a couple of her “daughters” that we’ve seen in promotional material, but I can’t say right now if I’ll ever get around to inking and coloring that.
Okay, so this commission is a bit different than what I usually do, but it’s what the client wanted and I did my best with the concept. The idea here is to take two enemy zombies from the Resident Evil games (the Regenerator, on the left, and the Iron Maiden, on the right) and create cute “shota” versions of them. The reason I put quotation marks around the word “kawaii” in the title of this pic is because I don’t know how well I succeeded. The client was happy with it, but I think I’ll leave it up to each of you to individually decide how well it worked.
The pose was given to me by the client, and he described them as being “mirrored”. Despite this, I did not just flip the Regenrator and edit him to make the Iron Maiden, these are two unique drawings. They are as close to the same pose as I could get them, though, in order to achieve the desired aesthetic. I hope you guys like this departure from my usual work. 🙂
