Nelliel Tu is a character who’s been getting some attention on my Discord lately, so I decided to include her in the most recent First Shoot poll. As you can see, she won that poll, so here she is debuting. Nel shows up in Bleach around the time I dropped out of it. I can’t remember if she’d appeared yet or not when I stopped reading the manga, but I know I never got to her full-grown design. While she’s not my personal favorite girl from Bleach, she is up there, and I had some fun drawing her here.
I don’t necessarily see the Studio as a place where everyone is always ready to bone no matter what, so someone like Johnny who hits on literally every person he’s attracted to will still get plenty of rejections one way or another. Still, I thought it’d be fun to see him hooking up with someone who says “yes,” and Jasmine just kinda came to mind as a casual partner he could have fun with.
When I did Johnny’s Ask a while ago with Velma and Daphne, I saw a number of people hoping to see him get a go at Velma herself. In their crossover episode, Jonny was into Daphne while Velma was into him, and while it’s nice to see him get the conventionally attractive girl in his own Ask, it’s also nice to see Velma get her stud cock. I’d been thinking that it’d be nice to do a follow-up, and here it is.
While I’m sure he probably still comes on too strong most of the time, Johnny’s success rate in the Studio is bound to be better than it was in his original show. The third episode of that show was a fun crossover with Scooby-Doo, and I thought letting Johnny hook up with Daphne and Velma would be a fun and sensible first crossover for him. I don’t know how often I’ll be drawing him, since his stylized appearance and exaggerated proportions don’t naturally translate easily into my usual style, but I really wanted to fit this in while he’s on my mind. In the episode Johnny hits on Daphne, who rebuffs him like all the women in the show do, while Velma’s into him but ignored. I’d like to do an inverse of this dynamic eventually, where Velma gets some Bravo D, but for now I went this route since Daphne doesn’t always get as much love in my work.
Johnny Bravo’s a character who’s canonical proportions make him difficult to work with, but I wanted to take a stab at this pairing so I went for it. Hopefully I was able to find a middle ground. There’s a couple of ideas I’ve had for Bravo content in my head for a good while now, we’ll see if I get to any of them, but in the meantime I think this is a fun first attempt.
