So, New Year’s may be past (especially by the time this post will go public), but a subscriber commissioned this little pic to commemorate the start of 2021. They wanted to see three couples from the Teen Titans having fun, so we got Raven with Cyborg, Starfire with Robin, and Terra with Beast Boy. It’s been a very long time since I’ve done anything with Terra, but she seems to be enjoying herself alongside the other girls.
I mentioned before I’ve been in a good mood for Raven lately, so even though I just did a pic with her I decided to take on this Ask as the last from the December batch. I didn’t really see a good option for B.B. just picking from what was presented, though, and rather instead liked twisting the answer to Raven’s tastes. I think this approach fits their dynamic a bit better, personally.
I’ve been in a Raven kinda mood lately, so you might see a bit more of her from me in the near future (no pun intended). The first thing I wanted to do, though, was ink and color this older sketch from almost a year ago. I don’t remember why I started this one back then, but I always liked how the perspective turned out and made a point of wrapping it up, even though Raven’s less of the focus in this one.
So here is the image for “April” on the first Near Hentai Studios Calendar. For those who don’t know, the premise of this project is to create twelve random pairings out of the Studio’s top performers (which just means the characters with the most appearances in my work). This is a great example of a crossover that I think would only happen randomly. Raven and her mother were put into the randomizer as one entry, and collectively they ended up paired with the Space Emperor Slut himself, Frieza. I kinda like this pairing aesthetically, Frieza’s white and purple color palette pairs well with Raven and Arella, I think. Outside of that this pairing is complete nonsense, of course, but that’s part of the fun of a project like this.
So this is the One-Shot comic I did for October, submitted by one of my SubscribeStar supporters. This is another one with a variety of pairings in each panel, though this comic has the theme of superhero boys to tie them together. The script listed which pairings should appear in which panels, though the overall posing and such were left to my discretion. I hope you all like the final result.
Lots of people had this idea as soon as they saw a bunch of different Ravens in “Nevermore”, and I’m sure Beast Boy wouldn’t be any different. I knew what I wanted to do visually for this answer right away, but I had some trouble figuring out what Beast Boy would actually say. In the end I thought a reaction like this would be funny, so here we are. I used the yellow glasses Raven just ’cause she was the only one in the episode with a real visual distinction besides her colors, and then pink and grey ’cause I thought happy and sad would be a fun combo.
The next entry in this little series of pics is Raven’s mother, Arella. Arella’s become a bit of a staple in my work ever since One Night in Azarath, and I feel any mother-based series I did wouldn’t be complete without her. I also wanted to do her next because she’s got another pic coming up eventually down the line, though it could be a while before that’s ready.
So I knew immediately how Butt Witch would view this question. I have no doubt she really enjoyed breaking in Twelve and her friends, and would enjoy doing the same with heroes from other universes. I picked Beast Boy as her partner for two reasons. 1) I thought a little green-on-green action would be fun (and B.B.’s not the only green-skinned character I’d like to pair with Butt Witch eventually) and 2) This same person had another Ask for Beast Boy that I didn’t do, but figured it meant they’d like to see him here.
