I wanted to draw these two characters together for a while. Aimee Brightower is one of two protagonists in Galaxy High, who I drew back in 2015. Lum is the female lead of Urusei Yatsura, who I drew on commission in 2020. Both girls were in the 1 Club prior to this pic, but I wanted to pair them with each other rather than more popular characters like I do for that series. So, instead, I dusted off the Studio Tour series for the first time in a while. Urusei Yatsura and Galaxy High have an interesting history together. Urusei Yatsura was extremely popular in its day (and has a new series airing right now, though I haven’t watched it yet), and Shinsha was tasked with creating a similar series for the western market, since importing anime was rare back then. They created Galaxy High, and inverted the “alien girl in human school” premise to “human boy and girl go to alien school”. They also traced some animation from UY for GH, including the last shot of the opening credits where Aimee looks a lot more like Lum than usual.
I don’t remember what first got me thinking about these two as a pairing, but I do recall being immediately interested in them. At first I started writing one of my AI-assisted fanfics pairing them up (those fics I’ve done a couple of where I write prompts and let an AI tell the story), and maybe someday that fic will go up on my site. However, I found myself more and more wanting to draw them, so I did this Studio Tour pic to bring the pairing to life. I might do more with them in the future, I’m not sure, and I do have another character I’m tempted to put in a role similar to Pearl later, too… But for now this is what we have, I hope y’all like it. 🙂
So this is a crossover pairing I wanted to do as soon as I was reminded of Mako back when I got a couple commissions for her… I almost did this pairing for the Ask where she ended up with Glimmer, but I’d already decided I wanted to do them for a Studio Tour entry instead. I just see a lot of parallels in their designs, both being brown-eyed, brown-haired, thicc girls with round, curvy designs and hairstyles. There’s actually at least two other characters currently in the Studio who also fit into this category with them (two that come immediately to mind, at any rate), so maybe I’ll try some other pairings out of that foursome of characters in the future. For now, though, I wanted to get out another Studio veteran/rookie type pic while Mako’s still fresh enough to the roster to be called a rookie.
So here’s the latest entry of the Near Hentai Studio Tour series, which serves as a follow-up to the last one where Luffy was in the audience for Frieza’s pole dance/strip show. Seems he found himself backstage later, and that slut was ready to go! It’s a little weird to draw Frieza with someone other than Goku or Vegeta, honestly, but in a good way. I have one other idea for something with these two, but there will probably be a handful of other Studio Tour entries before I do it.
So the title of this one might be a little misleading, since Frieza and Ash aren’t paired together in the traditional sense… but they are the focus of this piece, so here we are. I had the idea a while back (like, before SES) of drawing Frieza pole dancing. I went back and forth on a few different options for the audience for said performance (Frieza’s soldiers or the Giny Force, the Z Warriors, anonymous aliens). Setting the pic in the Near Hentai Studio, however, let it be a bit more open. I still stuck mostly with people he knew before the studio in the audience (same with Ash in the background), but I like the narrative this approach creates. Both Ash and Frieza are sluts for attention in and around the Near Hentai Studio, and this is a fun way of illustrating that. ^_^ I was a bit worried about the colors for this one, but I think they turned out okay.
So the Studio Tour is a series that keeps getting put to the side. As a result, I have several entries for it sketched out, but it’s gonna take me a while to work through them. This one in particular is pretty old, but I’m happy to have it finished. I was inspired for this idea off how I’ve had Clementine answer a few of her Character Asks. Clementine has sort of ended up being a character we see more often talking about the NH Studio and such, rather than in-character talk of her games (mostly due to me not being super familiar with her games). I don’t remember why I chose Raven as the person for her to practice on (or to tutor her, however you’d like to see it), but she is a long-standing Near Hentai veteran. Her first appearance in my work (not counting colorizations) was in April of 2010, so she’s getting close to hitting a full decade on my roster, hehe. Good thing cartoons don’t age.
So it’s been a hot minute, but here’s a new entry in the Near Hentai Studio Tour series! I had the idea for this one early on in developing this concept. Gohan’s gotten to work with both Gon and Killua, and it makes sense to me he’d relate to his new friends his experience in working with Goku in Special Training. Naturally curious, Killua decides to investigate and, well… here we are. I don’t know yet if I’ll portray Gon trying out the Goku dick for himself, but it’s a possibility. ^_^
So this is the result of a concept I’ve been trying to get a grasp on for some time. Originally it was going to just be one character “training” new hires in a series of yuri pics, but I decided to open it up to have a bit more potential with the pairings.
For those who don’t know, a fun little concept I’ve been running with lately is that my content is created within a fictional porn studio, where the cartoon characters gather and live and interact when the cameras aren’t rolling. A number of the Character Asks I’ve done have relied on this idea, but I think this series will let us have a bit more fun with it.
My character choices for this pic are reflective of the potential I see in the concept. In the center is Siat Wildstar, who is an O.C. of mine and sort of the mascot of the Near Hentai Studios. On the left is Chi-Chi, a regular around these parts who’s been featured in many pics I’ve done. On the right is C.C. from Code Geass, a character I haven’t drawn before but who is being introduced through this series.
Even though this series was originally a yuri-specific one, and the main ideas I have for it right now are all yuri, I do not foresee it staying that way. I hope to see straight and yaoi crossovers in this series in the near future, provided people like it enough that I stick with it.
