Here's a sketch continuing the "Exercise Mom" series. While sketching this I decided to give the bottom half of the drawing a little animation. It started out as a happy little accident as I was just playing around with the animation settings in Photoshop. I had no idea what I was doing at first, but as I continued to mess around with it the easier it was to use.
Below is the rough animation I generally started with (click on the image to see the animation):
Then I added more details to each frame:
As you can see things are still in the rough stages. I haven't decided yet if I want to add in more frames to cushion it a little or to make it seem more fluid. It was interesting animating in photoshop. I found it a little easier to deal with than using flash, purely because my lines don't change so much when I draw on a new frame (if that makes any sense).
I think I'll animate a little more in photoshop just for the fun of it. I will still be experimenting in flash, of course, if I ever plan to make a longer animated loop or movie.

Here's a piece that was inspired by the very sexy webcomic, "Bloomin' Faeries!" (bloomingfaeries.com/). In the recent strips, due to a transformation spell Marie the maid was transformed from being slightly overweight into a smoking hottie, and the young Prince Albert was transformed into a handsome man. Then I thought, what if Albert didn't transform... but Marie still did? Since the spell filled her with an overwhelming sensation of lust, she would still grab the nearest male and have her way with him, even a cute prince like Albert.
(If you're interested in the story arc that has Prince Albert and Marie, it starts here: bloomingfaeries.com/?p=1938.)

Here's a simple (and I think, really nice) mother and son commission I made a short while back. During the commission process, I ended up doing a few sketches for the client and I don't think it would be bad to post them as well.
The client described the mother's appearance and also provided a few photos of models for me to use as a reference. I drew two different faces with slight differences between them for the client to choose from. He chose #2, below:
Then I drew a couple of preliminary sketches with the main difference being the angle, or perspective.
The client settled on the angle seen above in sketch #1 (with a more forward point of view) and asked that I reduce the mother's breasts by a bit for the final sketch. After making the required correction, this was the final sketch (result):
The next commission was also simple and sweet. It features two of my characters, Matt and Amira, watching a movie indoors during a rainy day. I was told the reason for Amira having teared up is the apparent plot of the bitter sweet-romance film, with Matt looking slightly confused about the plot.
After I sent over the commission, I was asked for my opinion over what I thought might happen next between them, and I replied thus: "I'd think that Matt, looking up and noticing Amira tearing up, would probably try and be nice (and cute) and wipe away some of the tears from her cheeks and just below her eyes. I'd like to think that as he does this, Amira finds this act so adorable and sweet that she can't help but lean in to give him a 'thank you' kiss and, well... things develop from there."
And before anyone asks, you can expect to see the (long-delayed) next Sunday Hotness strip in a couple of weeks. Pinky swear.

Clean, and Wet w/Motion lines:
I've decided to ink and color a sketch I drew a while back. I got the idea for the piece from several hentai CG sets I was viewing at the time. And I'm happy I did as I really like the piece.

Here are (I'm almost sad to say) the final three pages of the "Bayonetta vs. Kid Icarus" comic.
I started this comic not really sure where I wanted to go with it but I certainly knew I wanted it to be fun. Looking back, it came out rather silly and there certainly wasn't much of a fight between the two, but I'm very happy with the end result (and the positive feedback I've received so far on it).
It was fun drawing Bayonetta's sexy body and writing her dialogue. She has a bit of class and naughtiness to her that I like. She also seemed like the type to take advantage of someone like Pit (which I loved!). Pit was also fun to draw, though I didn't go for his original anime-style appearance but instead went with a more western approach. The only thing I wish I focused more on was the background. When I was drawing the comic I guess I was so focused on the action I didn't pay much attention to the scenery. As such, I just added a few crosses here and there (gosh knows why, I don't remember) and that was that.
Overall, it was a fun little mini comic, and I certainly hope to do more if and when I get the chance.

While this trilogy may have concluded, my love for it has not. When I began work on the "trilogy," drawing April was a real first for me, and it was a lot of fun being able to work on her (that hair! that glorious 90's hair!). The same definitely goes for Elisa, who's look I absolutely fell in love with over the course of this commission (how can you not love a gorgeous detective?). What can I say, I'm really happy with how both of the women came out. I'm also happy that I've been able to share this commission (as well as all the other commissions) with everyone.
At this point, I certainly hope this won't be the last time I draw a comic featuring the sexy April, or amazingly hot Elisa.
