You know, I'm really glad that someone still has traditional methods still in their workflow. It just gives a piece a different feel compared to a purely digital work. Keep the tradition running, your stuff is bloody awesome!
i forgot to say thank you for your plug on my comic! so nice of you ... i'm still nervous about its reception and crap brushwork. i seriously have not inked with a brush in ages. thanks so much for the shoutout for it!! <3
Well I really like it so… yeah! And if that was crap brush work, well, I wanna see your best now >:U cuz I super enjoyed it, especially when motion was being expressed. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
So, how hard do toons have to work to stay clean? If one gets covered in dirt, do they have a few hashmarks/smudges on 'em for the rest of the scene, then are back on-model? Would a toon who's typically shoeless have to worry about his/her feet getting grungy?
Any instance of being dirty one moment and clean the next is a fabrication on TV shows through make-up and special effects — if Toon walks around barefoot, they’ll probably get dirty, though how dirty is dependent on a lot of factors.
So Bongo doesn’t like to wear shoes and this is a legit reason for his girlfriend to be pissy.
I noticed when someone mentioned drawing Fran and Claire together, you said Kelly would be jealous but didn't mention Mac. Is Kelly just super jealous or does Mac not care or is it a mix of both??
Hahahaha. Mac gets jealous but only if he’s straight-up being neglected in turn; if he’s getting lovin, he’s got no reason to complain if she flirts or what have you (though that’s out of character for her anyway).
Kelly is incredibly insecure about relationships and Fran even admitting she’s attracted to other people is enough to make her get flustered. So yeah, Kelly would get mad out of fear and insecurity.
You are epic at drawing lips and bodies and junk.You're one of my many inspirations ^-^. Would you mind if I do a quck doodle of claire or some of the other characters and upload it to my tumblr. I'll credit you as the creator and junk.
Haha aww, of course that’d be fine! I love fanart :3
I really like Boyakke, one of the new gay Slipshine comics. It is drawn really nice and I love the brush work and the character construction and… THOSE DICKS they are some nicely drawn dicks. Let’s not forget priorities. This is some great guy-on-guy action, I am into it.
GIVE SLIPSHINE YOUR MONEY RIGHT NOW this isn’t me thinking of my own interests I just WANT THIS TO BE A THING THAT CONTINUES.
Seems like a lot of people wanna see the LMN characters naked. If you did would you do the guys too? Not that do much for Mac who seems to go pantsless alot
I don’t want *any* of the LMN cast naked, not even the girls. Like I drew Fran in her underwear for a reference but the joke was the underwear was staying on.
I know this is probably weird coming from a porn artist, but… not everything needs to be naked. And with the comic having Toons there are questions I straight-up don’t want to answer and would rather leave unspokenly resolved or up to the imagination.
I mean, I battle with this a lot. I think nudity is okay, it’s natural. And I want to be sincere. There are so many scenes in the future where a character could easily be naked that I write to be censored or just write the nudity out, and it feels less sincere… but I also don’t want to have nudity for the sake of it, or to sexualize anything.
It’s something I think about probably more than I should and I’ve never come to any kind of resolution about it. I talk to my critique partner all the time about it, and our last conversation on the subject and I seemed more in favor of it then.
There was a part of me that was just as happy people thought Claire was sexy during that scene where she was naked with Mac, because I was happy people liked a “chubby” lady and thought I drew her well, and there was a part of me that was upset because… it’s not meant to get the audience off. It’s supposed to imply a level of intimacy and a “moment” with those two characters.
I really just want to portray everyone as real people that fits with my world views, but I also know people are not always well-intentioned with their interests in nudity. So I think about this a lot and I’ve yet to come to any sort of conclusion about it.
I look forward to doing future comics that are just as sincere as this one but afford me more wiggle room with depictions of nudity.
:C The comic isn’t about tits.. Please don’t do a boob chart.
I don’t plan to! I’m mostly trying to answer frankly and be polite. I don’t want to like be dismissive but… yeah, a breast chart isn’t really something I want to do or will happen. It doesn’t serve much of a purpose and singles out the women of the comic for their having breasts.
maybe you should do a 'bust chart' kinda like las lindas did recently
That would be weird for this comic. I’d rather to a body-type silhouettes chart or something. I think girls are made in so many different shapes that the size and shape of breasts is dependent on so many more factors than how they fill a bra, especially in this comic. Claire would have a drastically different profile if she were stretched 4 inches taller.
Well I wanted to draw some new Sailor Moon fanart, as I got bit by the bug, but I got some stuff to do this week first. But I remembered I drew this and had it on DA, so why not put it on Tumblr too!
This is about 2 years old and a lot of people seemed to like it, just some redesigns trying to keep all the incarnations of Sailor Moon in mind, even the live action series in spite of me not liking it.
I’m just so happy about the new english manga, guys, I’ve been waiting for that since I was 12 :O
Sailor Moon 4 Life
Weh you don’t like PGSM? I found it so delightful and camp and Usagi is so much more bearable in it. Okay yes stuffed animals but also CLUB HOUSE KARAOKE??? And tears.
I didn’t like the karaoke stuff, and I actually thought Usagi was LESS bearable. It was like, suddenly she went from being this fun bratty girl who wasn’t THAT stupid but was pretty dippy to… an overgrown 5-year-old who was a lot sweeter but that much stupider, to the point that I was happy for any scene where she wasn’t talking or reacting to something.
Usagi was always my favorite character in the anime and manga for how childish she could be, but could snap out of it on her own when push came to shove — there was this inner strength there that was integral to the character. But PGSM Usagi took SO LONG to tap into that, I just wanted to put her in time-out, give her a cookie, and pat her head so I could retool the show to be about all 4 of the other girls.
I even drew a comic where PGSM Usagi could only communicate with Ami by bumping the table with her face.
Though I loved the PGSM version of Usagi’s mother, that was adorable.
that awkward moment when you have to keep updating your comic even though your art is in this weird stylistic flux or some metamorphosis that isn’t done yet and you cringe to look at it but oh well
This. Every time I pause LMN to do a porn comic, when I come back there’s always this jump in quality or a style shift, thanks to pornographic work being really, really good practice. Usually it isn’t a big deal, but this recent chapter has taken me months and months to draw due to going to the hospital, domestic life drama, work problems, on top of the chapter starting right before I got my Slipshine job. There are like 4-5 pages throughout where you can see this major difference as I’ve gotten better as a draftsman… problem is, for the sake of consistency, I can’t let it change too much mid-chapter. So now I’m waiting for the next chapter to start before I can really flex my draftsman muscles, and in the meanwhile trying to make this hodge-podge work.
I like making whiskey sours because I like to drink them, so I enjoy the smell of it rather vicariously, especially considering I on average drink one alcoholic beverage a month… possibly every two months.
