I think Satsuki might care a little bit more about her perceived popularity than she lets on here, since she went through the trouble of making sure she had a “fan” on hand when she could’ve just answered this solo. I’ve been wanting to do more with Satsuki for a minute, and I’ve got a good handful of sketches with her, but I just never seem to have the time to get to them. As for her partner here, Kaori’s another lady I wish I’d drawn more often, and I think she makes an interesting pair with Satsuki for this Ask.
This is a crossover I thought about while drawing Gabi’s debut pic recently. Probably because that pic overlapped with writing/drawing the Ryūko Matoi Spotlight interview, but I remembered thinking if I got the chance I’d kind of like to draw Gabi with Satsuki. I don’t know why that pairing specifically came to mind for me, but seeing this question, from a Subscriber who likes Kill la Kill/Satsuki enough to have her in their avatar, I remembered wanting to draw them together and made sure to work it into Gabi’s response. Of course, like any character from a war-torn anime, I expect Gabi is probably mostly just grateful to be in a more peaceful environment in the Studio. I imagine she’s having plenty of fun, like everyone else.
I’ve been wanting to do a pic along these lines for a while now. A few months ago I decided to go ahead and try it out. Originally this pic was just Ragyō with Satsuki and Ryūko, which was kinda the vibe I was going for. I had a lot of empty space, though, and decided to throw Rei in as well. I’ve always liked her look, and I figured using her here would be a good excuse to get her into the Studio. It felt a little weird to include Rei and not Nui, though, so even though I’m not that fond of Nui I decided to work her in for good measure. Now we’ve got a pretty busy pic, something I don’t do that often, but we get three new girls from the series into the Studio, plus some fun Ryūko/Satsuki BDSM.
Here’s a little extra post for today. Decided to make a real quick AMV focused on some of the more explicit interactions between Lady Satsuki and her mother Ragyo.
I wanted to answer this Ask for a couple of simple reasons. One, it’s kinda fun to have one of the characters deprecate me and my shifting interests, but also I think some of Satsuki’s answer here can be applied to most of the characters people ask me why I don’t draw more. One other reason was just that I just felt like drawing Satsuki again. I did that pin-up pic of her and her sister not too long ago, but Satsuki hasn’t gotten to appear in stuff solo so here’s her chance.
So this is a pic I sketched back in December of 2018. I was feeling like doing something with Ryūko and Satsuki, but every time I drew them fucking I wasn’t really happy with it… In the end, I decided to do more of a pin-up thing, ’cause all I really wanted was to draw their bodies and get a look at them. At the time I thought this would be one of those pics I get out pretty quickly after I start it, but it ended up getting put on the side for a long time instead. I picked it up now, though, and we’ve got the final pic here!
So, one thing about Ryuko that I wanted to bring into this answer is how flustered she sometimes gets around sexuality and nudity. I don’t think she’s a prude or anything, but she seems like she can get easily embarrassed, and I like the idea of a more confident girl like Satsuki being able to push her buttons just right to gain the upper hand in a sexual encounter. Every time I’ve drawn these two before it’s been Ryuko chowing down on some Satsuki butt, which she seems to enjoy (and who can blame her), but I wanted to show a different wrinkle here. Ryuko’s not being, like, a BDSM sub here or anything, but she’s definitely taken a more submissive/receptive role now that Satsuki’s decided she wants a taste. 😉
So this Ask is specifically referencing the first time I drew either Ryūko or Satsuki, where the former was rimming the latter. I wasn’t too sure the best way to answer this, other than to take a second go at the concept. Ryūko just can’t get enough of her sister’s ass, I guess.
