Normally I’d try to avoid doing an Ask with a character who just appeared in one recently, but given how long May sat on the shelf since her debut, I think she deserves an exception. I was surprised to see a number of people celebrating her appearance in Clover’s Ask, I didn’t realize she was popular with Pokémon fans. She’s also one of the few members of Ash’s revolving party who’s in the Studio but not been paired with him on-camera, so I figured we could fix that and get her a little more attention while we’re at it.
Drawing the Totally Spies trio in that previous Ask got me kind of in the mood to do more with those girls. Hopefully that will take the form of some kind of regular standalone art eventually, but for now this Ask was appealing to me for that reason (also I think it’s been a minute since I answered one from this Subscriber). I’d originally planned to pair Clover up with two characters meant to mirror Alex and Sam, but I decided that’d go against the spirit of her answer so I went instead with two basically random characters. May’s been sitting in the 1 Club for years now, and while she’ll probably eventually show up in Hypno’s Harem, she won’t have to wait that long to make her second appearance. I was also never happy with her first pic, so a better one’s been due for a long time. And April’s always a fun character to go to, especially for crossover stuff.
COY stands for Cross Over Yuri. The premise is pretty simple, I have a list I’ve compiled of over 600 cute girls from various anime and manga. I then use a random number generator to make pairing, which I then draw. Every third picture is a threesome.
I have mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand, I’m rather happy with the pose and I think that (mostly) it turned out well. I also really like all three of the characters in this one. I loved Shirley in Code Geass, most because I have a soft spot for school girl woobies. I like May, too, although she’s second to Misty in my list of Pokémon chicks. Jun was a girl I wasn’t familiar with until I started coloring GodOfChaos’s work, and she pops up a lot in his stuff. So I was good on those fronts.
But I don’t know… something’s off. I know what it is, but I don’t want to point it out in case it’s not as obvious to other people. You should know, though, that if anything here looks a bit weird, it’s because it looked weird in the photo reference I used. I checked and double-checked, and it’s just due to the odd angle or something.
