So, like the last Ask, I needed a it of a simple one to do while I’m working on the monthly comic pages for SubscribeStar. This one stood out to me for a couple of reasons. One is just that we’ve never had a Steven Universe Ask, and I wanted to change that. Also, answering this one’s allowed me to give us our first good look at my version of Amethyst’s body, as her past couple of appearances haven’t really been full-body shots like this. Amethyst is fun to draw, and I enjoyed revisiting her here. As for her answer, it’s always a little awkward balancing a series own canon with my own version of the story, but I tried to have her answer reflect what I thought was reasonable and believable from what we see in the series. I’ve always liked the idea of Rose asking Pearl, Garnet and Amethyst to help her figure this sex thing out in preparation for Greg, and the way Amethyst and Greg interact in the show makes it very easy to extrapolate there might be at least a casual sexual tension between them. However, since Character Asks are limited to just who is in the Studio, Amethyst could only recollect on these exploits, rather than demonstrate them.
I needed a simpler Ask to answer for the moment, and I figured this one would fit that bill well. I like 17 despite not drawing him that often, so this Ask was a convenient excuse to draw him again for a quick pic, but also allow me to explain some of the, uh… Studio Lore, I guess. Gohan talked about this phenomenon a bit in his Spotlight interview, but some characters represent themselves from multiple realities. For those characters, they’re able to access memories and channel emotions form those divergent timelines, though they mostly live life as one simple “default” version of themselves.
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 guess this one’s just an excuse to draw Goku fucking Frieza again, like I need an excuse. I do like having the chance to flesh out Frieza’s bratty dynamic a bit, though. While he’s definitely a tyrant in the source media, post-SES Frieza’s a bit more broken in. He’ll act like his normal domineering self in foreplay, but Studio Frieza just isn’t a dom, and submits to a good dick pretty quickly.
I recognize that there’s a good chance this Ask was looking to see Butt Witch fucking someone more… petite. There’s definitely room for some futa-on-shota with her in the future, but once I hit on the idea of using Goku for this Ask, I started to really like it. I’ve only used Goku on bottom a handful of times, but the idea of the main male top in the Studio getting fucked by the Butt Witch just really appealed to me. I hope it will for many of you, as well.
I was still in a bit of an Avatar mood after finishing the February NHML pic. I liked the idea of doing an Ask with Azula, though I wasn’t sure if hooking up with the original “Gaang” would be her first priority in the Studio. Zuko’s sort of part of that group, and I thought she’d want to reconnect with him. I’ve talked before about how some people’s personalities shift when coming into the Studio, and that’s how you can have villains and world conquerors living alongside heroes and the like. Canon Azula probably could not function in any society where she isn’t in charge of everyone, so Studio Azula’s a bit more stable and sociable. Hopefully this version of her can continue to have a more enjoyable relationship with her brother than what occurred in the show.
I’m not sure how to talk about this one, and I feel like I will probably not represent my thought process well. I don’t really know Luck that well, but I don’t picture him sitting around daydreaming about meeting someone in the Studio like some characters might. I know he likes to seek out powerful opponents, and that might parallel into his Studio self wanting to seek out, like… big cocks or something, but it just didn’t sit right with me. Similarly, I’ve had some Asks I’ve had to pass over trying to pair Luck up with other eclectic-powered characters based solely on their powers being related. I don’t want to do those Asks, because I feel like they’re inviting answers with a lot of electricity flying around, or some electroshock stuff that I just don’t have any interest or intention of drawing. So this is sort of a compromise between a couple of different Luck Asks I didn’t feel I could work with, in an attempt to still give people some Luck yaoi crossover action I hope they will like.
