It’s probably just because he’s cute, but I don’t really see Kaminari topping Kirishima. However, the inverse I thought might be fun to see, and these two haven’t gotten to appear together just the two of them in my work yet.
While I’m sure he probably still comes on too strong most of the time, Johnny’s success rate in the Studio is bound to be better than it was in his original show. The third episode of that show was a fun crossover with Scooby-Doo, and I thought letting Johnny hook up with Daphne and Velma would be a fun and sensible first crossover for him. I don’t know how often I’ll be drawing him, since his stylized appearance and exaggerated proportions don’t naturally translate easily into my usual style, but I really wanted to fit this in while he’s on my mind. In the episode Johnny hits on Daphne, who rebuffs him like all the women in the show do, while Velma’s into him but ignored. I’d like to do an inverse of this dynamic eventually, where Velma gets some Bravo D, but for now I went this route since Daphne doesn’t always get as much love in my work.
When I first drew Mamako I wasn’t familiar at all with her or her series, but I’ve watched Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks now. I don’t know if she’s the type to go out of her way to work with lolis, but I liked the idea of her using her mommy nature on a couple young gals. Anya and Eri are a cute pair I thought would work well for this, so here we are.
So, I was trying to think of bad boys who Kurapika wouldn’t take much issue with. He’s pretty straight-laced, but I feel like it’s hard to really hold a grudge against someone like James. Being completely incompetent while also pretty sweet can help a lot in this regard, I think. However, I couldn’t decide on who I wanted to top or bottom. I was thinking of having James top, but then the idea of them making a good team came into my head, and I really liked the image. So, instead of a partner to fuck, Kurapika could see James as more of a collaborator, and I like this shot we got out of it.
I thought it was funny that the question implies Zofia’s last name is “Rims”, though I suspect it happened due to accidentally copying too much from the title of the pic she debuted in. Regardless, I wanted to acknowledge it, but as for Zofia’s time in the Studio I imagine she’s having fun. The first time I saw her was a scene where she, Gabi, and their friends were experiencing a festival or something, relaxing and having fun away from their training. I think her time in Studio so far is probably similar, dragging Gabi around to different locations and enjoying the sights, sounds and food. I don’t really think she’d jump into new relationships right away the way many have, so I paired her with Gabi again, but maybe we’ll see her in some crossover action down the line.
Basically, I thought it’d be fun to pair Faye and Honey up, two confident women who know how to use their bodies to get what they want from men, both from big Watanabe series. There’s not much more to say about this one than me wanting to do this crossover, though I do like the idea of these two finding a surprising kinship in the Studio. Though they both tend to carry themselves in very different ways, I feel like they’d understand each other if they met.
I don’t really remember Iida being particularly upset with Mei over their sports festival battle, he seemed to me to take it well in stride, but this is another example of a ship I know some folks like that I probably won’t get around to drawing in a regular pic. This Ask serves as a way to get some content of them together, and I hope fans of these two will enjoy it.
Saika’s response here is kinda my own reaction to his debut pic. While he is cute, I didn’t expect him to be as warmly received immediately as he was, but it seems like he may have some staying power. For his partner, I wanted to go with someone I haven’t drawn as much, and while looking through the guys who fit that description, Roy stood out to me. I was hoping to find someone who could play into the “warm” part of warm reception (and there were a few candidates), and in Smash I always see Roy associated with fire and flames. I also like that, when their faces are close together like this, if you squint they almost look like Todoroki.
I know I’ve done it before, but I’m always a little hesitant to, uh… “canonize” lewdness within the original franchises. Like, I’d be fine with drawing Biscuit and Gon having fun together during this period, but for some reason having her say they did feels more like projecting a rewrite onto the source material… I dunno, it’s complicated, but I figured there’d be no reason why we couldn’t see them hooking up more in the Studio.
