NHML - Buddy Armstrong
The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for August 2016 is Nancy 'Buddy' Armstrong of the popular RPG Maker series "LISA". I've never played any of these games, but I've been hearing more and more about them this month, though part of that just might be me noticing them more because of this picture.
I only did a cursory bit of research for this picture. What I saw of the games seemed vaguely post-apocalyptic, with most of the game looking desert-esque and having lots of grotesque mutants. I decided to go with a simple approach with the picture and have Buddy paired up with some random guy. I tried to keep some of her more recognizable design elements, since her appearance changes throughout the game(s). This one had a unique challenge for me, since I typically base my art style on whatever source material I have, and here I only had a pixely game sprite and some fan art to go off of. Hopefully fans of the game will still be able to recognize her and appreciate this piece.
Now that this month's entry is posted, feel free to nominate anyone you'd like to see show up in next month's Monthly Lady. Remember that nominations have to be someone I haven't drawn (or, at least, haven't drawn in a few years). One nomination per person, and I'll announce the random winner on September 1st in the cBox.
