So Yamcha just got to the Studio, but it did make sense to me that the first thing he’d think to do when arriving in an extra-dimensional porn studio is see if Bulma was up for some swinging. Turns out she is, but I thought this dynamic would work best for these two.
This was one of those Asks where I just immediately heard the character’s response when I read it. I really enjoy the combative friction of Bulma and Vegeta’s relationship, and I just liked the idea of Bulma using this Ask as an opportunity to tease/jab at Vegeta a bit. Obviously she’s not serious, but I thought this answer was fun while also standing out differently from how 18 answered a similar question recently.
This is the One-Shot I did for subscribers for September. This one was interesting in that it was a one-sentence concept, Android 18, Bulma and Chi-Chi thank Gohan for saving the world from Cell. It didn’t specify anything beyond that, but I figured I could do one panel for each possible threesome pairing with that premise, and then use the last two to fit in all three ladies at once. I decided to add in dialogue to help carry the premise along, too, though hopefully it’s not too distracting.
I was kinda excited when I saw this question posted, just because Panchy is lowkey one of my favorite Dragon Ball gals. Despite that, I’ve barely ever drawn her, and it’s been a few years since the last time. I went back and forth on which designs to use for the Briefs ladies here, but in the end I settled on their “Super” looks.
So this Ask interests me, ’cause it’s a rare case of being able to have the character answer “no” without removing the interesting parts of the answer. Honestly I don’t have any characters I’d consider, like, a strapon specialist… As frequently as I engage with strapon porn, it hasn’t come into my work all that much. Still, I figured Bulma listing off some other possible contenders but not fully accepting the proposed title fit pretty well. As for Bulma’s partner here, I wanted to use a non-Dragon Ball character (as I always do for Asks specifically referencing the Studio), but I wasn’t sure who to use. I ran a randomizer of characters I’ve drawn, and got some interesting possibilities. A runner-up was Lord Dominator, ’cause I really liked the idea of Bulma hooking up with a hot alien chick, but in the end decided this role didn’t really fit her. Jasmine was a bit different. For some reason it’s really easy for me to imagine Bulma and Jasmine getting along well (perhaps because they both come from privileged backgrounds, or both having an association with the color blue? I’m not sure), and I decided to go with her for the visual portion of this Ask. It could’ve really been almost anyone, but I like this fit.
Here’s a simple little Bulma pic I sketched a few months back. Kinda left it in the WIP folder for a while, but I liked how it looked so I dusted it off for coloring. I added in the Namekian Dragon Balls ’cause I thought Bulma just by herself looked a bit plain (if still sexy), and I like how the complete concept comes together (even if it’s hard to pin this into any sort of narrative).
Also, here’s the Q&A video I did for last month, if anyone’s interested:
Here is the One-Shot I did last month, based on one of the scripts submitted at the time. The script for this one left me with a fair amount of freedom, which I always love, and had the added bonus of using the End of Z designs, which I’ve wanted to do more with for a while. Maybe if this comic is well-received it’ll help motivate me to work on some of the unfinished End of Z pics I’ve got sitting in my work folder. ^_^ Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this one.
