The February One-Shot had a very simple premise, to see Goku giving his “special training” to three characters he hadn’t yet in the Studio. It’s a pretty straightforward theme, which I think is nice for the final comic. The three characters this Subscriber chose are Inosuke, Najimi and Kai, who have all been on very different tracks in the Studio so far I think.
I didn’t really like the idea of Yuji palling around with Tanjiro or Zenitsu, I kinda see his and Inosuke’s Studio friendship as removed from either show and more about just them. That being said, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten around to drawing these two actually fucking, and thought finally doing that would maybe soften the blow of not doing Yuji/Tanjiro or whatever else this Subscriber was hoping for with this question.
This is a pretty simple one, but I thought some folks might like it. There was a little bit of buzz over Tanjiro’s butt when I drew him bent over in a previous Ask, and I thought some people might like seeing it again. I don’t currently have any plans to do any more poll tournaments on Twitter, since it was kinda more trouble than it was worth, but it seems Tanjiro’s interested in his prospects.
Also, here is the Q&A video I did for Subscribers last month:
Giyu’s a character I don’t really know anything about, so it’s hard for me to write answers for him even if I think he makes a good bottom. Until I decided to answer this Ask I wasn’t even sure if he was a villain or not, and I still don’t really know anything about him other than recognizing what characters from other anime he reminds me of. I had this itch to have him paired up with, and mocked by, Geto and Gojo, though, just ’cause I think their energy would contrast well against his. Hopefully it’s a fun match-up for y’all, too.
Like last month’s winner, this One-Shot script is a sequel of sorts to a previous one. In that one we saw a variety of characters in the Studio gym, but this time we focus just on A-ko as she pairs with a handful of different characters. Since this was the October script, it was specified that it should be “after hours”, hence the darker color palette than last time.
Here is the One-Shot comic for August of 2023! The script for this comic puts together several pairings that this Subscriber has been trying to make happen in Character Asks, but usually in ways I didn’t really feel I could make work in that format. They finally get to see some of their crossover ideas come to life here, though, and I hope y’all will enjoy the results.
So, on my SubscribeStar I ran a little game with my Subscribers. I’d seen something similar done by other creators, and thought it seemed fun, so we played a guessing game where my Subscribers had to try and figure out what cartoon I was thinking about. Someone eventually got it, and the reward was a pin-up of a character of their choosing. They went with Giyu of Demon Slayer, a character they’d championed in the past, and this is what I came up with. I don’t know much about this guy, but I hope fans of his will enjoy seeing him here.
