I don’t have too much to say about this Ask, sorry. I feel like the One Piece characters who are in the NH Studio would likely still hang out together in their new environment, so she probably wouldn’t miss them. Maybe some of them I haven’t drawn, but I’ve got a good chunk of the crew employed. ^_^ Her first appearance in my work was a crossover pic with Videl, so if she has any friends outside of the Star Hat crew, it’s probably her? (Though the Ask wasn’t specifically about friends, just asking how she’s doing.)
The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for December 2016 is Nico Robin from One Piece. While working out various sketches for what to do with her, I hit upon the idea for this pic, which necessitated adding Nami. Since nobody seemed to mind her inclusion, I ran with it, and this is the end result. I tried my best to make it clear that it’s Sanji fucking Nami and Zoro fucking Robin, but who know’s if it’s clear without being spelled out. All four characters are sporting their attire from the Dressrosa arc, as requested in the cBox.
I’ve mentioned before that I have many unfinished pieces floating around in my work folder, and for some time this was one of them. I drew this one all the way bag in August of 2014, and never got around to coloring it until just now. After that much time I usually abandon a pic, but this one held up pretty well, mostly due to it being a solo piece. I think if I had drawn her with one or more other characters, the quality would’ve suffered and I’d be embarrassed to post it now.
That being said, the colors are brand new and I think they save the pic. This one’s a bit of a departure from what I usually do, partly because of its time capsule-esque history. I don’t do many pin-up/softcore pics anymore, and it’s also been a long time since I’ve done anything with One Piece. However, if the response is good, I could see myself doing more of both in the future.
COY stands for Cross Over Yuri. The premise is pretty simple, I have a list I’ve compiled of over 500 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.
This was a complicated piece. Not because of anything with the image itself, but because I got into quite a tiffle with Gelbooru over it. Apparently, it didn’t meet their quality standards because Videl’s mouth, quote, “Looks like a Goomba.” Whatever. For some reason, their policy against allowing Western artists never came up, though.
Interestingly enough, though, I saw this pic on Gelbooru several months later. It was up for quite a while before someone realized I wasn’t Japanese and had it taken down. During that time, it received an extremely high rating and had several very positive comments, probably more than it deserved. Go figure.
