MomSwap

MomSwap – Sora and Mrs. Kaidou

The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. is a pretty fun gag anime that I watched the first couple seasons of a year or so ago. At the time there were a number of characters I was interested in possibly drawing, both male and female, but I think I just had too much on my plate at the time or something ’cause it never happened. Recently I began rewatching the show in order to share it with my sister, and I got the urge to draw from it again. When Mrs. Kaido, the mother of supporting character Shun, first showed up, my sister gushed on and on about how pretty she was. We haven’t yet gotten to the first episode with Shun’s sister, Sora, but I remembered her from my first viewing and decided I’d rearrange my MomSwap plans to put these two up front. I’m glad to finally have a Saiki K. pic under my belt, though hopefully it won’t be the last.

Incredibly Proud MomSwap

Ever since I first started the MomSwap series, I always wanted to eventually do some sort of actual swapping between the accounts we see. I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to do it; for a while I wanted to try doing a full comic focusing on a swap, or maybe a one-to-two page affair. I never felt like those were viable options, though, especially with how many other comics I’ve loaded myself down with, but recently I decided to take a swing at this approach. I picked the Parrs and the Prouds partly because they’re two of my favorites I’ve done for this series, and partly because I liked the punny title that came to mind. I don’t know if or when I’ll do another swap, as I’m far from done making profile pages for this fictional mom swapping app, but I might do another down the line. Are there any mother/daughter pairings I’ve done for MomSwap y’all would like to see make a trade eventually?

MomSwap – Miko and Mayumi Kubota

So I watched Netflix’s Glitch Techs the day it came out, and I knew right away that I would want to draw Miko here with her mom for this series. This wasn’t what I had planned for the next MomSwap entry to be, but I wanted to get them in while I was still riding high on the show. It’s been a good while since I made that decision, now, but I am glad I finally got them done. Miko’s a fun character to have available for the Near Hentai Studio, too, I hope she’ll get to make some more appearances down the road.

 

MomSwap – Velma and Mrs. Dinkley

So, like I did with Daphne before, I’m using the “A Pup Named Scooby-Doo” version of Velma and her mom for the MomSwap series. Now, Velma’s mom in “Mystery Incorporated” is named Angie, but that version of the franchise is clearly in a completely different universe than any other version. That’s why I used the name Elizabeth for Daphne’s mom, rather than Nan, and why I’m just going with Mrs. Dinkley for Velma’s mom. However, like with Daphne, I do think there’s a good chance I’ll draw the “Mystery Incorporated” equivalent of this pairing somewhere down the line, since I do like the idea of Velma and Angie getting it on.

MomSwap – Reggie and Judy Abbott

I’ve been wanting to do Reggie and her mom Judy in MomSwap for a minute, but I had this weird hang-up where I didn’t want to release any Reggie pics until after I finished my “Butt Witch Victory” comic montage. Now that that’s done, though, I have a fair number of pics featuring Reggie I’d like to do in the future. Most of them will probably be with the Butt Witch, but other like this one won’t. This may well be the only time I draw Judy, though, which is why I was comfortable letting her be the main focus of this pic.

MomSwap – Daphne and Elizabeth Blake

I’ve wanted to use the “Pup Named Scooby-Doo” versions of the Mystery Inc. crew for a while. Of them, I think Daphne is especially cute, so I used her and her mom first. Daphne actually has two different moms that appear in the show (there’s no indication they’re different characters, it comes across more like they forgot about her first appearance and introduced a new design when they used her later). The first time we see Daphne’s parents they’re just two rich people stereotypes, but in the second appearance they both look just like, well… Daphne. I used that later appearance here, since the family resemblance is there, and even though she’s not named in “Pup” Daphne does have a redheaded mother named Elizabeth in other versions of the franchise. I plan to do Velma and her mom in a later entry for MomSwap, too, but it won’t be the next one.

MomSwap – Aja and Lucy

So, this MomSwap entry is a bit different than the others. Lucy Blank here isn’t Aja’s real mom (or even, like, a motherly figure in her life). She’s basically just a wacky lunatic that lives with her, but there’s a good in-universe explanation for this pic.
So, you see, Aja Tarron is an alien princess in hiding on Earth, and the main protagonist of 3Below. While posing as a human in Arcadia, it’s necessary for her and her brother to program two “blank” robots to pose as their parents (with Lucy being the mom). Aja is also friends with Claire, who we saw in a previous MomSwap entry. Aja learns about Claire’s account, maybe just seeing her browsing the app on her phone, and Claire tells her what the app is for. Aja decides that, since this is a normal thing for young girls to do in this universe, she should get her fake robot mom to sign up on the app with her as part of their cover. So, here we are. I just absolutely adore Lucy Blank (and Aja’s pretty cute, too), so this pairing was a high priority for me after seeing 3Below.

MomSwap – Cindy and Willow

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope all of you who are able get the chance to spend some time with your mother today.

It’s been a while, but I went on a bit of a kick on A Kind of Magic in early 2016. I knew when I started this series I wanted to bring Willow and Cindy back for MomSwap, since I never did get around to drawing them together back then (was more focused on pairing Tom with them at the time). Now’s the time, though! This is another one of those shows where I’m less confident in how my approach works with the art style, but I think I did better with them now than I had in the past. I might try and bring these characters (especially Willow) back into my rotation more often if anyone would like to see more of them.

MomSwap – Claire and Ophelia Nuñez

So, this is Claire and her mother Ophelia from Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia. Some of you may remember I did a yaoi pic with a couple of the side characters from this franchise last month. I found myself liking this series a lot more than I expected to, and I knew as soon as I saw Ophelia that I wanted to do a MomSwap entry (Claire is also cute, but Ophelia’s more my type). Claire in a honor roll type overachiever, while her mom’s a bit of a control freak who also holds political office, so I tried to tune their app bios based on that (Claire treats sex like something to study for, but her efforts do pay off, while Ophelia is a bit resistant but also deeply and secretly submissive if you push her in the right directions). I plan to do one other MomSwap entry based on the Tales of Arcadia franchise, though I’m not sure yet if I want it to be the next one I do or if I want to break things up a bit. We shall see, I suppose.

MomSwap – Chloe and Catherine

So a while back I watched a movie on Netflix called Gnome Alone. It was alright, nothing special, but as a kid’s movie I thought it was fun. The main thing I took away from it was that I thought the main girl, Chloe, had a really cute design I wanted to use later. I made a point of getting her in on the MomSwap list before I forgot, and finally got around to finalizing that concept.
I don’t know how much more Gnome Alone stuff I’ll do, but I’d like to keep Chloe around. She seems to me like a character I could plug into other stuff, like a Sleepover Raid type comic or something, so if I get the chance I might use her for some crossover content in the future.
