KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!

December ’19 One-Shot

Here’s the One-Shot I did for December, selected from nominations sent in by my supporters. Of course the holidays referenced in this comic have now passed, but it was more timely for my supporters. ^_^; This one presented a couple of unique challenges. First, was that I have very little experience working with the Fairly OddParents style (I’ve drawn it before, but it’s been ages). I did my best to find a compromise between my more realistic approach I usually use and the uber-stylized designs of the original characters. Also, the last panel was left completely open to me (except the dialogue). I decided that, since the pic was presented as a message from the Studio versions of characters, I should use Siat Wildstar, who’s sort of the mascot of the Studio. Since her panel is all about looking forward to the new year, too, I decided to work in a “look forward” theme, with her training three new characters (or, in Kefla’s case, a combination of two characters already in the Studio). Darkness is the last of the main KonoSuba girls for me to bring in, and Nessa’s a popular new character I’ve gotten a few requests for. Seras in the first panel is also new, though she’s been nominated for NHML maybe a dozen times. It’s also fun to bring in Mrs. Claus from the comic I did with CCat for Christmas 2018, paired again with her favorite boys, Mace and Jackie.

Birthday Fun

This is an Epic Tier commission from one of my supporters. The birthday referenced in the title is the client’s, as this commission was his birthday present to himself. He had a pretty sizable list of potential girls to fill into these spots, but he settled on Olive and Maps from Gotham Academy (since it’d been a while since he last commissioned them from me), plus Aqua of KonoSuba and Ochaco of My Hero Academia after discussing his options with other fans on Discord. Hope you all enjoy! ^_^
Also, here’s the Q & A video I did last month, for anyone who’s interested:

Megumin NHML

So here’s the Near Hentai Monthly Lady for December this year! Megumin is a magic user in KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! (or just KonoSuba). The main joke with her character is that she only practices explosion magic (she refuses to cast anything else, and insists on casting an explosion spell once per day despite the level of magic needed completely draining her each time). Whenever she does cast magic, she yells out “Explosion!”, hence the joke here (though she’s not casting a spell in this pic, the explosion is a bit further south). I came very close to doing a yuri pic for her entry, and maybe some day I’ll still do some yuri content with her, but this time around I decided to pair her with KonoSuba’s primary character, Kazuma Satou.

With this post, NHML nominations for the month of January are now open. For those who don’t know, I’ll run down the rules real quick. Nominations are limited to one per person, and if I catch anyone trying to do multiple nominations by changing their names I will remove all of that person’s nominations. You can nominate any female character you want, provided I have not drawn her within the past calendar year (though I prefer characters I’ve never drawn, period). Previous NHML winners are not eligible for a second time. Nominees must also not be from the same franchise as this month’s winner, KonoSuba. If you violate any of those rules, I’ll let you know, and you can nominate someone else. I know it can be hard to keep track of those things. You may nominate by either commenting in the cBox, commenting to this post, or emailing me (Nearphotison2010@yahoo.com). I’ll compile a list of the nominees on the sidebar of this site, and then on January 1st I will use a randomizer to select the winning character who I will proceed to draw sometime that month. I look forward to seeing who you all nominate this time around!
