Shaman King

The 1 Club – Lyserg and Gon

Lyserg is a character from Shaman King I drew ages ago for a One-Shot featuring several SK boys partnering with boys from other popular anime. I haven’t drawn him sense, but I pegged him as a good candidate for this series a while ago. It took me some time to settle on the pairing I wanted to do for him, but I finally got around to getting his second appearance here with Gon.

NHS Fusions – Yorapakura

So the poll for this fusion was another themeless one, just ten characters I like. Of those, though, Kurapika and Yoh won out. The way these two mixed seemed pretty self-evident to me, so sorry if there’s not much surprise to this one, but I think the resulting Yorapakura is pretty cute. I decided to let him keep Yoh’s headphones (or, more accurately, get his own red ones), just ’cause I think they’re cute and I don’t see why he wouldn’t have the same habit as Yoh for wearing them.

Yoh Asakura Character Ask 1

So, Yoh and Deku haven’t worked together directly, I’m pretty sure, but there has been a lot of crossover between Shaman King and My Hero Academia in the past. Yoh’s buddy Ren has worked not only with Deku, but Deku’s pals Kirishima and Bakugou in the past, so I do think they have some association there that I don’t see with Boruto. Also, I’m just biased to like MHA over anything tied to Naruto. In the past for Asks like this I’ve usually just had the character answer the question, but I decided to go ahead and put them together here. Maybe they’ve already hooked up off camera before this, but regardless I think it results in a more interesting answer, visually.

Horohoro Character Ask 3

I’m not sure how much it showed in the Ask I did with Yoh recently, but I’m trying to shift the way I draw the Shaman King characters to more closely match the newer anime, now that it’s out. I think the style of that show fits into my work a bit better than the classic show, or even the manga. Horohoro’s design is more distinctly different in the new show than Yoh’s, though, so I think it’s pretty clear I drew him different than usual here. I thought this Ask would be a good way to try out the new look, since it’s not only the first time I’ve drawn him in a little bit, but the Ask itself is focused on his growth/change since debuting.
As for his answer, I figured it’d be funny to answer mostly visually, with a simple one-word explanation. Compared to his shoot with Luffy, Gon and Killua, Horohoro seems to know his way around big cocks now.

Monkey D. Luffy Character Ask 15

I find it a little hard to picture characters in the Studio walking around calling each other heroes, or anything like that. I think most probably don’t really know much about the franchises/worlds that other characters come from. With Goku, who we’ve seen fucking a lot of different protagonists, I feel like he finds out later that he keeps ending up with “heroes”. That being said, I have been thinking about drawing Yoh again, and this Ask seemed like a good chance to do that, while also pairing Luffy up with a protagonist that Goku hasn’t been with in a pic yet.
Of course, there’s a possibility this question is instead asking about people who are heroes of the Studio, like the top performers, but I think it’s asking about protagonists.

April ’20 One-Shot

So this is the One-Shot I did for April, based off one of the scripts they submitted for that month. The supporter who submitted this script is a fan of Gon and Killua, but also is really into Shaman King’s Horohoro. Since I’ve only drawn Horohoro a handful of times, the concept he wanted to try out was the experienced Gon and Killua instructing Horohoro on how to be a good bottom in the Near Hentai Studio. The top they chose to help him practice was Luffy.
