18’s an odd character for me. I draw her plenty, she made it into the calendar project after all, but compared to Chi-Chi and Bulma her number of appearances is pretty slim. However, I have tons of unfinished sketches of her that just never make it to the inking and coloring stages (usually simple pics of her and Krillin). I decided to rectify that a bit by finishing this pic I started a few months ago. I hope y’all like it.
This is the One-Shot comic that I did for my Subscribers last month. Like all of my monthly One-Shots, the script for this was submitted by one of my supporters on SubscribeStar. Since February is the romance month, the goal for this script was to highlight a bunch of popular Dragon Ball pairings. Several of them brought in a third party (Bulma brought her mom, 18 her brother, and Caulifla and Kale brought in Cabba). The poses were left up to me, and I tried to make each pairing match how I see their different dynamics. I hope you all enjoy.
Obviously there were a bunch of potential partners for Killua in this Ask. Just counting his canonical friends in Dragon Ball, there are a ton of great options. Throw in his Studio friends, and you’ve got even more. I decided to stick with DBZ, though, and a couple of things lead me to this specific choice. One is just that I like when married couples share a younger partner, but I’ve barely drawn that, and another is that there seems to be some demand for more Krillin content in general from my Subscribers. So here we are, with what I think is a pretty fun little pic.
Here is the One-Shot comic I did for Subscribers in October 2021, based on a script semi-randomly selected from a pool submitted by my Subscribers on SubscribeStar. When I announced the winner, there was some disappointment expressed that it wasn’t one of the Halloween-themed scripts submitted last month. To try and make everyone happy, I decided to set it in a slightly darker setting, based off some of the villainous locations in Sailor Moon. Beyond that, it’s a pretty straightforward Dragon Moon X type situation here!
This commission wanted to see Krillin, Tien and Yamcha together, but beyond that I was left to my own devices. Since Yamcha has the biggest “bottom energy” in my eyes, I thought it’d be fun if the two baldies filled his ass up. I don’t have too much more to say about this one, other than I hope you guys like it. This is the first appearance of both Yamcha and Tien in my work, I think, so that’s two more of Dragon Ball’s million characters crossed off the list.
Alright, this one’s finally done. I hope you all enjoyed the ride, but I think I’m going to take a little break from coloring ben_10mil’s work. There’s just too much pressure to get pages out with these comics, and I’d rather focus on other projects for the time being. Maybe some day I’ll come around to color a different one, we’ll see, but right now I associate ben_10mil’s comics more with stress than anything. As always, I’ve included the original version of this page down below.
So I finally got back around to coloring this ben_10mil comic. I know it took a while, but I’m glad I waited until I felt like it. The final page of this is colored as well and is in the Post Schedule. It’ll come out fairly early next month. As always, I’ve included the original version of this page down below. 🙂
