Monkey D. Luffy Character Ask 9

I almost passed over this Ask, just because I didn’t like the assertion that Boruto is a “big fan” of Luffy. There’s nothing in my work that would lend credence to this, and I was under the impression it was just something that was made up to try and make a particular pairing happen. However, I knew plenty of people would be happy to see Boruto again, and since his dad had already been double-teamed by Luffy and Goku in a previous Ask I figured I had a fun enough way for Luffy to respond. So here we are. Later on I was told by one of my backers that there actually is some sort of gag about Boruto being a fan of Luffy in his own series, I guess? I wasn’t aware of it and didn’t see anything about it when I looked into it at the time, but I’d trust just about anyone’s knowledge about Boruto over my own.

Boruto POV

This here’s another Mini Commission for one of my supporters. I’m not crazy about Boruto, so it’s hard for me to say objectively how well this one turned out, but it’s a position and angle I’ve worked with before so I thought it’d be a nice one to try and get out while working on some larger projects. While I’m not a fan, I know some folks are wanting to see more of this guy in my work and I hope those folks will like this pic.

Naruto and Sasuke Character Ask 1

So this Ask isn’t really up my alley in any capacity, as you might have guessed. Beyond my normal issues with the Naruto franchise, I’m just not that interested in underwear? So this one was pretty boring to work on, but I know there are folks out there who do not feel that way. My hope is this will do something for those of you who like these characters and enjoy underwear. ^_^; It’s been a long time since I watched any of Naruto, but I tried to get what I could remember of their personalities across in the answer. Honestly, the writing part is the hardest part of these “ogle” Asks (to borrow Naruto’s description of them). It’s easy enough to just draw the character (naked or otherwise) standing around to be ogled, but there’s only so much I can do with the answer portion. I do feel like they need to say something, but just saying “Okay!” or “Like this?” or whatever isn’t super interesting. Once I started writing Naruto, though, he didn’t seem to want to shut up, so I ended up with a bit wordier of a response than I’d originally intended (though far from the wordiest).

Yoichi Yukimura Character Ask 1

I couldn’t really, like, illustrate an answer to both of the questions here… Plus I just didn’t have any ideas I was happy with for the part about Hiro, which is why Yoichi mentions Hiro making new friends in the studio. For all the Camp Buddy boys, I have some ideas for similar characters they might get along with (like Kiba, here, who shares Yoichi’s passion for dogs). I think looking to shared interests is probably better than trying to match people based on having a similar personality, since I feel like people who are too similar tend to butt heads. If I was gonna pair him with someone who has a similar personality, I probably would’ve used Bakugou, but picturing them hanging out, it just seemed like they’d fight all the time. I feel like personalities like theirs need a calming presence (Kirishima for Bakugoi, Keitaro for Yoichi), and that dynamic works better.
I also felt Yoichi would have to have a nickname for Kiba. I dunno if “triangle-face” is what he’d use (I don’t like that it’s a bit too similar to torch-head), but I felt it would have to be about the markings on his face, and that was the best I could come up with. ^_^;

Goku and Luffy Character Ask 1

I had a bit of trouble with this Ask, not just because of Naruto’s presence (I’ll get into why he’s there in a bit), but also because I’ve had some recent troubles that have soured my opinion on Luffy. I had a lot of emotional difficulty getting through this, but I’d already settled on the idea and wanted to get it out.
So I knew the visual I wanted for this one almost immediately. Goku and Luffy double teaming a boy from some other series was obvious, and Naruto seemed fitting. On top of my continuing effort to ease my way back into being able to draw characters from his series comfortably, I think he’s appropriate in a sort of Jump Force reunion sort of way. Hopefully fans of these series (or even one or two of these series) will enjoy seeing these three main characters paired up like this. The difficult part was figuring out what I’d have them say, since there’s not much to talk about here…. hence them basically saying nothing. Oops.

Son Goku Character Ask 7

So this Ask could’ve been answered with just Goku talking to the camera, but then I thought it’d be neat to try and show him with some random crossover boy (even though he doesn’t really have an actual answer to the question. I ended up adding two more boys just ’cause… I’d never accept an Ask that demanded this many characters, but since it was my own decision it’s okay. ^_^; I went with three random boys, trying my best to avoid any sort of theme or anything with the selections. Just three boys who would be in the studio. I guess Goku’s pretty popular around the NH Studio, and he’s such an easy-going guy that he just goes along with whatever.

Sarada Gangbang

This is a commission I wrapped up recently, part of the “fire sale” I did to raise money for a friend in need. I don’t usually take Naruto commissions, due to personal issues, but I made an exception in this case since I needed to raise as much money as I could. The client for this one was super easy to work with, too, which helped.
Recently on my site there was a lot of commotion pushing to get Sarada Uchiha the NHML spot. I don’t know if it was one person or several people reacting to each other (the IP addresses would suggest the latter), but either way I hope those who were wanting to see her will like this pic. Depending on the reactions this one gets when it goes public, I might consider revisiting this character again some day.
