So this Ask was one I had an answer for pretty quickly. It had been asked the month before, but I just ran out of days in the month before getting to it. I did get it this time, though, and I hope you all like it. This Ask is in reference to the Near Hentai Studio, of course, the kitchen of which is staffed by many of our cooking enthusiasts like Mito. As for who’s meat she ingests to keep away from the food supply, I decided on Luffy, though obviously there were a few options given the cliches of anime protagonists. I enjoyed getting to draw Mito again, and I hope I can find the time to do more with her at some point down the road.
So this Ask is in reference to the Frieza/Ash Studio Tour pic from a ways back, where Luffy could be seen watching Frieza’s show from the audience. I have a follow-up to that pic planned, but for now we see Luffy enjoying some private time with a different pair of performers who we didn’t get to see on stage in that pic.
So the title of this one might be a little misleading, since Frieza and Ash aren’t paired together in the traditional sense… but they are the focus of this piece, so here we are. I had the idea a while back (like, before SES) of drawing Frieza pole dancing. I went back and forth on a few different options for the audience for said performance (Frieza’s soldiers or the Giny Force, the Z Warriors, anonymous aliens). Setting the pic in the Near Hentai Studio, however, let it be a bit more open. I still stuck mostly with people he knew before the studio in the audience (same with Ash in the background), but I like the narrative this approach creates. Both Ash and Frieza are sluts for attention in and around the Near Hentai Studio, and this is a fun way of illustrating that. ^_^ I was a bit worried about the colors for this one, but I think they turned out okay.
So for this Ask my main thought was, well, I don’t really see Goku and Luffy keeping score, you know? Honestly, I kinda doubt either of them would even keep count of how many people they’ve been with (they don’t strike me as big fans of counting). However, Luffy and Goku do both enjoy having fun, which is what he was in the middle of to answer this.
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.)
I don’t feel great about doing these One Piece Asks, haha. I still don’t feel like I have a good handle on the One Piece style, and while I did used to read the manga and watch the anime back when it was first starting out, it’s been a long time and I don’t feel confident with these characters’ personalities or mannerisms. Hopefully I didn’t mess up too bad with this response. ^_^;
So, here we have the very first Near Hentai Monthly Lady of 2019! Boa’s been nominated a number of times by different people, so hopefully a lot of you will enjoy seeing her here!
With this post, NHML nominations for the month of February are now open. For those who don’t know, I’ll run down the rules real quick. Nominations are limited to one per person, and if I catch anyone trying to do multiple nominations by changing their names I will remove all of that person’s nominations. You can nominate any female character you want, provided I have not drawn her within the past calendar year (though I prefer characters I’ve never drawn, period). Previous NHML winners are not eligible for a second time. Nominees must also not be from the same franchise as this month’s winner, One Piece. If you violate any of those rules, I’ll let you know, and you can nominate someone else. I know it can be hard to keep track of these things. You may nominate by either commenting in the cBox, commenting on this post, or emailing me (Nearphotison2010@yahoo.com). I’ll compile a list of the nominees in the sidebar of this site, and then on February 1st I will use a randomizer to select the winning character who I will proceed to draw sometime that month. I look forward to seeing who you all nominate this time around!
