So, for those who don’t know, for the past few years on Christmas I’ve been posting these parts to an ongoing Christmas Carol parody starring my characters Mace and Jackie. It was a project that started as a comic idea, then became a series of pics, and then ended up with the pics spread out to one per year just because I kept having trouble meeting the demands of the project. We’re four years into it, now, and we’ve made it to the Ghost of Christmas Future (or, in some versions, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come), usually portrayed as pretty similar to, or even exactly like, the Grim Reaper. I went with a cute albino chick with a hooded cape and obscured eyes. Seems like she intended to show them what dark future laid ahead, but the little scamps distracted her. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to return to this series next year, I guess it’ll depend on how I feel when the time comes. I had one other possible pic in mind, but I may not bother with it.
Here’s another bio page for the Bate family. This time it’s for Nora, daughter of Eleanor, sister to Tori and aunt to Josh and his sisters. I wanted a soft, innocent motherly type in this family, a stark contrast to her sister, and this is what we’ve got. There’s one last bio page for this family in the pipeline, that being for Nora’s daughter, and we’ll see when I can get around to releasing that.
So, my friend CCat has been experimenting with some different inking techniques for her art. She wanted to see how this looked with my colors on it, but of course I don’t have a lot of time for coloring stuff I can’t share. She agreed to give me something I could publish and here we are. It’s sort of like an alternate cover for the comic we’re currently working on, but I can’t really say when the actual comic will be coming out just yet. But here we see Ty with Mr. Flopsy, his beloved stuffed bunny his older brother Kobi gave him for his birthday.
I’ve wanted to add an older woman to the Applebridge roster for a long time, and I knew as soon as I started building this new family I’d want to add in a grandmother character. The main core group of the Bate family has been established at this point, but there’s a handful of extraneous family members I’d like to get bios out for as well. Eleanor’s the first of those, but eventually there will be a couple more Bate family bios to come.
Sorry if this answer’s a little bland. I feel like the question may have been made in hopes of pairing Jaiden up with someone in the Studio, but something about that didn’t feel quite right to me. I did like the idea of drawing her again, especially since we haven’t seen her naked until now, and I figured it would be cute to have her answer this way.
I was pleasantly surprised to see a question for Misae mixed into those submitted for May. I’m quite fond of her, but I wasn’t sure how much other people were wanting to see more of her. I do have more Misae pics planned (I’ve got a couple mother/son pics for her, plus she’s going to be part of the new NHS MILFs series eventually), but I was quick to take advantage of this chance to draw her here. I wasn’t really sure how to answer this question, though, as I’m not sure who she would consider a “rival”. Plus, like she mentions in her answer, when it comes to the realm of “big butts” I think there’s a different realm of women above her. I thought she might just take advantage of the question as an excuse to have some fun, though, since the characters answering these Asks get to decide how they want to present their response. So I was browsing through possible partners, and Amy Brant’s name was standing out to me. I don’t usually pick my own characters for this sort of thing, but I think Amy fits a bit closer into the realm of a “rival” for Misae… She’s a similar age group, similar body type, and like Misae she hasn’t had a ton of exposure in my work so far. Mrs. Brant’s one of my Applebridge characters, one of Mace and Jackie’s conquests, and she’s personally one of my favorites of the women from that project. Even though I like her quite a bit, and have a lot of ideas for ways to use her, she hasn’t gotten to appear much and I thought this would be a good time to change that. Whether you want to think of them as rivals or not, I thought Misae and Amy would make for a fun, odd pairing for this answer.
Continuing with the new OCs for my project with CCat, here’s the matriarch of the Bate family. I wanted a sporty, athletic type mom, and decided to work her into the fabric of the Applebridge setting a bit more by making her the coach of her son’s soccer team as well as the gym teacher at the junior high. At first I was going to put her in her coaching uniform for this bio pic, but I decided to put her in workout clothes instead so we could see her tan lines better.
Yeah, so… I saw the conversation that lead to this Ask on my Discord, and I’m not really sure what the point of any of it was. Like Jean mentions here, his dick has shown up in my work already, if that’s the proof you want, but beyond that his bio page uses male pronouns and he’s just never really been portrayed as anything but male. I kinda felt like addressing the misconception of genitals being the best way to determine someone’s gender though, even if in Jean’s case his junk meets the traditional expectations. At the end of the day, though, this is just a pic of Jean naked, so hopefully some of ya can enjoy that for what it is.
