These sorts of Asks can sometimes be a bit tricky. It’s easy enough to just pick a position (though sometimes I have trouble even answering that, since I don’t really know much about which positions feel good, just what looks good to a viewer), but I usually feel an obligation to include some dialogue that isn’t, well, boring. I wanted to answer this one though, because 1) I like Marth and haven’t drawn him much and 2) This patron has asked this before and I felt bad not getting to it in previous months. I hit on the idea of Marth’s actual articulation of his answer being muffled ’cause he’s biting a sheet, and I think this works here since we can see the answer well enough without being able to understand him. I thought it was a fun way to handle the response, and I hope you all enjoy it. ^_^
Here’s the newest entry for my Near Pokédex series. The poll I ran on Patreon picked Lopunny for this entry (and funnily enough, the poll was run around Easter time). Lopunny was obviously gonna be picked for this series sooner or later, but I hope her inevitable entry is a fun one for everyone. ^_^
This was one where I knew right away what the visual would be, but I had to think a bit about the actual answer portion. Eventually I decided it’d be worth acknowledging that getting to toy with Ash isn’t a rare occurrence, but due to James somewhat limited critical thinking skills he’s just now noticing how much easier it is to catch Ash than it is to catch Pikachu. Of course it’s the difference one would expect between someone who doesn’t want to be caught, and someone who does. 😉
So the title of this one might be a little misleading, since Frieza and Ash aren’t paired together in the traditional sense… but they are the focus of this piece, so here we are. I had the idea a while back (like, before SES) of drawing Frieza pole dancing. I went back and forth on a few different options for the audience for said performance (Frieza’s soldiers or the Giny Force, the Z Warriors, anonymous aliens). Setting the pic in the Near Hentai Studio, however, let it be a bit more open. I still stuck mostly with people he knew before the studio in the audience (same with Ash in the background), but I like the narrative this approach creates. Both Ash and Frieza are sluts for attention in and around the Near Hentai Studio, and this is a fun way of illustrating that. ^_^ I was a bit worried about the colors for this one, but I think they turned out okay.
Here’s the One-Shot selected from scripts submitted by my supporters over on Patreon. The idea for this script was just to see a bunch of boys thrown together. Panels one and four were left up to commenters, while panel three specified only Nagisa’s appearance and commenters were to nominate boys to pair him with. Three people commented on this script before it won, and I used one suggestion from each of them (one person’s panel one, one person’s panel four, and one person’s partner for Nagisa). The boy fucking Nagisa is Keitaro Nagame, by the way, the protagonist of indy yaoi dating sim “Camp Buddy”. I’ve had a growing number of my fans get into the game, so there’s a chance they’ll be pushing for more content of the characters in that game in the future.
So here’s page two of the new ongoing Patreon comic, Double Love Triangle. This page sees a continuation of the shenanigans between Ben, Ash and Misty. It seems like these naughty sluts are goin’ at it with the tent flaps wide open, too, the scoundrels. Like the previous ongoing Patreon comics I did, each month my supporters can submit their own scripts for the next page, and vote on their favorites. This is the script that won out this time. ^_^
So the last Patreon poll I did for the ‘dex saw Riolu win in a landslide (Riolu had 22 votes, second place had 9). This entry completes this evolutionary line in the male version of the Near Pokédex (though neither Riolu nor Lucario have shown up in the female version yet). Riolu’s not hugely different from Lucario in terms of design and anatomy, so there wasn’t much difference in how I handled the redesign here from when I did NPM448.
So this is an Ask I’ve neglected to answer for a couple months now (sorry WildBlue). I just couldn’t think of an interesting way to have Ash respond that felt, like… right. I believe this Ask is specifically trying to play into a fetish for being nude and being seen nude, but that’s kinda hard to work with, especially when all the Asks are answered in the nude anyway. So if Ash answered “no” (which felt right, honestly, though I also had trouble thinking of how to phrase it), then his answer would be super weird if he was also just standing their naked. When I did hit on his answer that he gives here, though, that felt really accurate for a response. It also gave me the chance to give some more interesting visuals, since he could kinda demonstrate the results of him being nude around his Pokémon. I went with Infernape as his partner since 1) I didn’t want to introduce a new ‘mon I hadn’t drawn yet and 2) While I’ve drawn Infernape, I haven’t drawn him with Ash despite Ash and his Infernape having a really cute dynamic in the Diamond and Pearl series. I think that covers all the explanation for this one, so please enjoy seeing Ash get his ass wrecked by a fire monkey.
