WWOTM - LaBarbara Conrad

I somehow found the time to wrap up my WWOEC Woman of the Month pic for December. I went through several ideas for this one, including an incest pic with her son and something involving limbo. In the end I went this route, mainly because I needed to keep it simple in order to complete it on time with all the Christmas fuss distracting me.

Originally Barbados wasn't in this pic. My reference pic and my original sketch neither showed the guy's face. However, after realizing how shocked LaBarbara looked (my intent had been moaning, but she looked shocked to me after I inked it), I decided to add the infidelity angle to pull it together. I think a negative side effect of that decision was Barbados' body not lining up perfectly with his head, but I tweaked the lines some and I don't think it's distracting.

I was really concerned when I started this that I wouldn't be able to adapt the Futurama/Simpsons style well. I've always found porn of those shows very subjective, and I think only very talented artists can successfully pull the style off and keep the picture sexy. While I don't feel I completely nailed it here, I think I did well enough that I'd be comfortable doing other Futurama or Simpsons work in the future. I definitely think there are a few characters I'd like to draw, so if I find the time I may do that.

Toothless and Astrid Commission

Here's a commission I recently did of Astrid and Toothless from DreamWorks' "How to Train Your Dragon". This image presented a unique challenge in Toothless, who differs greatly from what I'm used to drawing. Still, it was fun to learn a new body type, and I'm pretty satisfied with the end result of his scales, which was also something new I had to learn. Hopefully everyone will enjoy this picture as much as I did making it!

Eromugen Page 33

I feel like my "skills of an artist" have been improving a lot as of late, but then I looked at some of the recent Eromugens and didn't see that reflected there. So I'm trying to put a bit more focus on the comic artistically, changing up some aspects of how it's drawn and my approach to the characters. I don't know if it's working, but if you see an art shift in this page, that's why.

I like that we get to see some of Siat's thoughts, here, since she's been kind of a voiceless character for the past few pages. My only real regret with this page is that it moves a bit too quickly, but I feel we may have spent too much time as it is with this scene. I want to wrap the flashback up and move on to Chapter Three, so pacing may suffer for it.

Don't forget that there's an ongoing contest right now to get your OC not only in Eromugen, but to have a whole chapter dedicated to him or her. For all the details, go here:

Commission - Persona 2 Girls

Of the multiple commissions I'm currently balancing, I somehow found time in the midst of holiday preparations to actually finish one! This is a picture of Eriko Kirishima, Maya Amano and Lisa Silverman of Persona 2. I've always found the Persona games to have remarkable style and design to them, to regretfully I've never played one. Still, it was fun to do this picture, which was commissioned by the same individual who did the earlier Maya pic.
