Here’s the third page of our Tournament of Lust! Vegeta steps things up against 18, but she hasn’t lost her bravado quite yet. This match should complete in the next page, and hopefully it won’t take me too long to get it out. I do have other comic projects to worry about, though, so we’ll see how things go.
I was hoping the turnaround on page two would be a bit quicker than it has been, but I’ve had a lot of things slowing down production beyond the normal high workload. However, I did manage to get it done, and now we’re getting into the action. I’m currently expecting at least two more pages of this round; we’ll see how long it takes me to get those out.
This is the first page of a project I’ve been mulling over. I’ve tried and failed to get some sort of competition-based event set in the Studio off the ground for a few years now, and I finally decided to just go ahead and get this variation of it going. I figure if the comic is actively running, it’ll be easier for me to commit to it, though I suspect this one’s gonna be running for quite a long time. The tournament itself is going to be fairly long, on top of my usual slow turnaround for comic pages. I don’t plan to put this one in the comic rotation, though, rather I’ll update it when I can like with Butt Witch’s Busy Weekend and Addicted to My Little Brother’s Ass.
For our first match-up, we’ve got a rematch from late DBZ with Android 18 and Vegeta. Having these two go at it sounded fun to me, and I think their dynamic will make for an interesting first match of the ToL. The match itself will probably last a handful of pages, the first of which I’ll be getting to work on soon, hopefully.
Like all of the older women I draw, I was hoping to eventually pair Genkai up with Corey. Naturally, fans of Corey sensed she was a good candidate, and one such supporter was able to provide me a nice little Ask to get the job done. I figured her dynamic with Corey would be a bit combative, but she doesn’t seem to hate his dick up her ass.
I don’t remember what got me wanting to draw this, but I’ve always liked Genkai and I thought pairing her with Yusuke would be fun. These two have a fun dynamic in the show, and I wanted to play into it a little bit. I know Genkai’s younger form had some fans back when this show was popular, but I wanted to draw her normal look first since she doesn’t get as much love when she’s older.
Normally I probably wouldn’t answer a question like this. I feel like an answer in the positive or the negative here would be kinda boring, but luckily I had an alternative narrative for how these two might’ve met that I thought was kinda fun. I remember thinking Sasuke and Hiei has pretty similar hairstyles when I was a kid, and even wondering if it was just a trope for rivals to anime protagonists to have some variation of Vegeta’s hair, so Yusuke seeing Sasuke from behind at a distance and mistaking him for someone he knew seemed like a fine meet-cute to me.
I’ve mentioned before I typically prefer to use both Ryūko and Satsuki for yuri content, but everyone in the studio is pansexual so it’s okay to veer off the established path a bit. I thought Yusuke would make for a good straight partner for her, since both of them are based off of retro Japanese delinquent archetypes. I don’t have much more to say about this one, I guess, but I hope y’all like it.
I ended up with one extra commission for August than I’d originally expected, due to the move to SubscribeStar (several of my Master Tier people paid twice as a result, and I decided to bump those people all ahead one month for their annual rewards). It’s always been pretty common to pair Sailor Moon (and the other Sailor Scouts, too) with characters from contemporary boys’ anime. I think I’ve seen it most commonly done with DBZ, but they’re far from the only crossover I’ve seen for those gals. The commission here is all about pairing Serena/Usagi with Yusuke Urameshi of Yu Yu Hakusho, with both characters being popular protagonists from shows I watched when I was younger but haven’t drawn much of. This is the first time I’ve drawn either character, as it happens, which now opens them up for possible Character Asks down the line. The client wanted a softer, more romantic feel and I think that comes across here.
Also, here’s the Q&A video I did for my supporters last month:
COY stands for Cross Over Yuri. The premise is pretty simple, I have a list I’ve compiled of over 500 cute girls from various anime and manga. I then use a random number generator to make pairing, which I then draw. Every third picture is a threesome.
Once again, I’m afraid this is a case of my reach over extending my boundaries. I really wanted this pic to be awesome, Amara Tenoh (Haruka Tenoh) is my absolute favorite Sailor Scout, and I really love Kannagi, too. Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready (and, indeed, may still not be) for a pose like this. All things considered, it turned out alright. It definitely could have been a lot worse. Still, I’d love to this pic done better justice some day…
