Here’s another Applebridge Bio for the project I’m developing with CCat. Tara here is the older sister mentioned in Josh’s bio from a few days ago. Several of my characters in Applebridge are based on or inspired by existing characters I’m fond of, but I think Tara’s probably the most obvious of those. Still, I’m happy with how she turned out, and I hope you all like her, too.
So, as I’m sure most of you know, I’ve been collabing with my artist friend CCat on comics. Mostly y’all have just seen our Christmas ones, but we’re wanting to branch out into non-seasonal fare. We’ve got a bisexual and yaoi comic both under way, but CCat was hoping to get a straight comic, too, so she’d have something to work on regardless of where her interests in the moment lie. So I pitched her an idea, I’d rather not spoil it too much here, and to help flesh it out I’m going to try and do some bio pages for the characters in the concept. This not only helps convey to her how they should look and give her a feel for their personalities, but also helps me flesh them out and round them out. Anyway, Here’s Josh, the hero of our little story. He’s a member of Oliver Townsend’s soccer team, though his adventures will be focused more at home than on the field. I think he turned out cute, and I hope y’all like him.
So this is a new character for Applebridge. She’s sort of a work in progress… I imagine most of you immediately noticed she’s got hair poofs very much like Jazmine’s, and that’s because I’ve been wanting to steal that hair style for a while. But Corrine is actually an amalgamation of several half-baked design ideas I’ve had for a while. She’s basically five or so incomplete characters mushed into one new character. I did this pic for a couple reasons. One is to flesh out and canonize these elements, see them come together into a complete image. Another reason is just to try and get a feel for her. Corinne’s mostly a design, I’m still working on fleshing out her character and role in Applebridge. I know she’s a high school student in the same grade as the Twinson sisters, but beyond that I’m still developing her. Sometimes drawing a character an help me get a better grasp on who they are, and I do think I understande Corinne a bit better now. Anyway, I hope you all like her. I can’t say when she’ll appear again, but I’m happy to at least have been able to introduce her to y’all.
So here’s another long-overdue comic update. Like “Lost in the Fright Zone”, Sunkissed Youth is currently outside the regular rotation of my comics until I’m ready to put it into that schedule. This means I just work on it when I think to or when I have some spare time, which makes progress incredibly slow. That’s a little bit unfortunate for this project, since it’s paced much slower than most of my comics, but eventually I’ll get to the point where it’s put into the comic rotation, and then like the others you won’t see it for a long stretch until suddenly I’m releasing several pages back-to-back. For now, though, here’s page two, where Kobi’s looking to try and get a bit closer to his crush.
So this is the bio page for Ty Ray, Kobi’s younger brother. This is actually Ty’s first official appearance, but I’ve been working on something involving him with my friend CCat for a year or more at this point. No clue when that’ll come out, and I don’t want to spoil what we have planned, but I figured it’d be nice to go ahead and introduce Ty to everyone here.
So, I don’t really know much about the Seven Deadly Sins or Gowther, but I tried my best to use what I did know in Gowther’s response here. As I recall, he’s more of an emotionless doll boy than a sex god (or sex doll, lol), but I figured a cutie like him would still garner attention from others in the Near Hentai Studio setting. I went back and forth on who to pair him with (didn’t want to use Goku or Luffy, since I feel they’re both a bit played out), and in the end I settled on using my OC Zak Corrado.
This is the bio page for Mrs. Cordova, the English teacher Mace and Jackie fuck in their second comic. I always intended to make a bunch of different teachers at the Applebridge schools, but so far she’s the only one I’ve gotten around to establishing. I might end up putting out bio pages with some of them just to introduce them? I dunno. Here’s Mrs. Cordova, though, getting a first name for the first time.
So at first I was planning for Oliver to say something along the lines of, “I don’t get involved in that, I’ve got Wren” or whatever, but as I was writing it kinda came out a little different. It makes sense to me Oliver wouldn’t linger too long after practice, though, when he’s got a hot and horny sister waiting to take care of him at home. We haven’t met any of the members of his soccer team, yet, so who knows how frisky those boys might get after hours.
