Here’s another bio page for one of our Studio Fusions. Trunks and Beast Boy already have a lot in common personality-wise, I feel, so the actual bio part wasn’t too hard to settle on.
Here’s a Fusion Bio page for Chun-Chi. I’ve always had mixed feelings about Chun-Chi, since the two characters she’s mixed from are pretty similar already. That also translates into her fashion, but hey a fair number of people still seem to be fond of her regardless.
Also, for anyone interested, here is the Q&A video I did for Subscribers last month:
I decided to run a new NHS Fusion poll on SubscribeStar, focusing on non-human characters to try and get an interesting/weird result. The Subscribers voted for Zarbon and Sliver the Hedgehog, and hopefully the result is weird enough. I wanted to keep a body type similar to Zarbon’s, though I drew him a bit less muscular. I thought Zarbon’s skin tone would look good with Silver’s hair color, so I went that direction instead of mixing the colors like I often do for these Fusions. I like the skin-toned foot sole look I’ve been doing with Surge’s pics, though, so I kept that for Zilvon here.
Nicola was a Fusion who I felt kina went under the radar. When I designed her, I looked to Ryo-Ohki from Tenchi Muyo as to which animal parts were prominent in making a “cabbit”, which seemed to be mostly bunny ears and tail with a cat’s face. I feel like Nicole’s facial elements ended up less obvious than I’d hoped for, but I still think Nicola’s kinda a fun furry. Since she’s so blue, I hope varying her color scheme with some clothing will help her come across a bit better in this second pic.
Here’s another Fusion Bio page. Gumbaddin was pretty well-received when he debuted, but I haven’t really had the chance to draw him again until now. I pictured his style being a bit like a modern take on Aladdin’s style in Magi, and that allowed me to continue his blue theme from the poll he was first spawned from.
While I’ve resolved to cut back on adding too many new Fusions to the Studio, I do still want to do them occasionally. I had the idea a while ago to run a Fusion poll for Subscribers made up of only First Shoot rookies, so once we hit ten I decided we could celebrate that way. So, of the first ten FS rookies, Yor and Power ended up winning the poll. I can’t say this result is terribly surprising, and I decided to go with the funniest name option I had on my list. I hope you all like Powyor, and maybe we’ll see her again down the road.
Marking our tenth First Shoot is Fa Mulan, star of Disney’s Mulan. Mulan is a character I’ve always liked, and toyed with drawing for a long time. She’s one of several Disney “Princesses” I’ve been wanting to draw for some time, though her inclusion in this First Shoot poll was a bit of a last-minute decision. Here she is now, though, and her random lottery partner ended up being our first Fusion to appear in this series, Catrina (fusion of Catra and Selina Kyle). I ended up liking these two together quite a bit while drawing them, maybe they’ll become friends in the Studio.
The next Fusion on the list to get a Bio page is Shezula. For Shezula’s outfit, I wanted to incorporate some of the aesthetics of Azula’s royal garbs, but on more modern clothes. Of course I also used Shego’s Two-Face-esque fashion sense, hopefully y’all like the result. Shezula’s a bit of a sleeper fusion, since there aren’t as many “loud” elements to either character’s design in her’s, but I like her and I hope y’all will enjoy getting to know her a little better.
