WHOAAA OKAY I KNOW I know I said I wanted to explore the dragon bathhouse idea for my first full-length comic! And I still want to explore that.
The story for it felt only half-baked for me and needed more time in the oven. I knew in my heart that I wanted to create a comic and finally put it out there. Some of you might remember the game I had in mind, “Lewi’s Noodle House for Wayward Demons”. The story for that was entirely fleshed out and ready to go! But I didn’t have the time to put together the game I wanted just yet.
I figure it would be great to adapt as a comic first and release the game later. Lewi’s Noodle House has a story that’s deeply personal to me with a bit of my own experiences mixed in. I feel strongly about moving forward with this as my first real deal comic.
Thank you for waiting while I posted this, this week. A lot of it was stage fright. But after getting a pep talk from a good bud, I’m ready to share this with those who support me and my creative works as passionately as y’all do. 💜💜💜
I have 6 pages mostly thumbnailed and ready to be revised into full pages! Gonna experiment with keeping consistency and uploading a finished page each week.
I really hope y’all dig this series. Thanks to you I’ll be able to work on more serious projects that truly matter to me. Gonna be pouring all I am into this!! ✨🐺✨
He's getting a lot better about asking to be spooned. 💜
EDIT: Thought the comic would be a bit cuter and more humorous if Wolf referred to spooning as “jetpack”. Inspired by some good sweet friends. UwU
Here's Thomas!! A totally sweet and charismatic striped hyena who thinks he makes the best lasagna in town when really it's about as good as the frozen ones. But don't tell him that! He's got fangs but he's very sensitive n just wants you to enjoy his mediocre food and company. UwU
BIG ENORMOUS THANK YOU to Gnoll Breath! Thank you a ton for being this month's Culinary Creature! Working alongside you to breathe life into Thomas was such a relaxing and smooth process. You freaking rock, man. Your generosity and patience means the world to me. ; w ;
Hope y'all enjoy his new boy!! 💜🍖💜
This month's Culinary Creature, Gnoll Breath, wanted a ref sheet of his striped hyena character, Thomas! He doesn't have any art of his character made just yet.
There's something so gratifying about drawing someone's character and giving them form for the first time. Probably the most endearing thing about doing commissions for me. ; w ;
I'll have a SFW and NSFW version for him, too! I'll have updates for that in the coming hours.
Thank you for following along so far! See you in a bit. UwU
Hey, Sweets! Hope y'all had a nice weekend. My body still kind of aches from all of the gardening I did. Feelin pretty satisfied and rested for what I have planned this week!
WELCOME NEW PATRONS!
First I want to thank Aaron Richardson, absurd_nobody, Arturo, Ashen Natura, Dewald, Eric S, Ivan, Jason, John Doe, N-Shang, Oscar Lambert, Ponpokora, Rick, Rocket, TechnologicRy, and Vaska for supporting me this month!! In these days it's important to take care of yourselves and those close to you. The fact that y'all have space in your hearts to fund my works means the world to me. Thank you so much! 💜🐺💜
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK
This week I'll be working on this month's Culinary Creature Commission for Gnoll Breath! He asked for a ref sheet which is super exciting for me since I haven't worked on a proper furry ref sheet in a while! Gonna load it with personality and do my very best to help convey the character of... well, his character! I'll be dropping WIP's of it by Wednesday after they get approved by Gnoll Breath to make sure I'm on the right track.
That about does it for the update! Lookin forward to sharing my doodles with y'all. Thank you so much!! 🍭🐺🍭
Wolf is lucky to have his player 2. UwU 💜
Nothin quite like loving every inch of your best bro. Worshiping every bit of them that makes them so special to you. 🐺💜
Thank you for holding tight while I wrapped these dudes up! Wanted to put a bit of extra tongue in this week's piece since this will be the last pinup I do for a few weeks. Shifting my attention to comics for a bit!! Super excited about it. :3
Hope you like it!! Got a Patreon commission queued for next week then going all in on the comic. STOKED ✨🐺✨
Okay so haha
Took so creative liberties and started this guy over. Wasn't super crazy in love with the initial idea's layout. Wanted to do a lot more with it. Felt more like involving him with another character and do some more kissy stuff.
Hope you like this new take on the week's piece. :3
I'll work on having these boys done for y'all by Friday! 🐺💜
Since this will be my last pinup for a little while, I wanted to have another go at one of my older character from not too long ago! He's a big ol tattoo artist who made a pretty successful career for himself.
He'll have full-body tattoos that elegantly lace about his contours which I haven't added yet. He had them done to celebrate getting over his body issues and working towards having the body he'd always imagined himself having. Thought it'd be nice to draw him in the middle of a moment with himself. Lookin over his hard work and hardships. UwU
Thanks for stickin tight while I got this put together! Gonna move towards refining the sketch and laying down the linework next. See you soon! 🐺💜
Before we dive in, let me first thank Gnoll Breath for becoming this month's Culinary Creature!! Next week I'll be working on a custom commission for him of a ref sheet! Gonna do something a bit special with it so it's both functional as a sheet and giving it my own twist. Gonna be a lot of fun to work on! Thanks again, friend!
I also want to extend my sweetest thank-yous to Azel Stoltz, Clive Palmer's Secret Kangaroo Hentai Stasher, Darwen, Devon Coley, Howlie Tigerpaw, Jeremiah Alexander, JojosAverageAdventure, Lyle, Milo, Tomei Shepski, WarBird, and Zander Monkey for subscribing this month! Seriously your support during these times means everything to me. Looking forward to showing y'all what I got in store for you this month!
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK!
This week I had an idea to do a sort of tastefully-erotic, elegant sort of pinup involving a tattooed polar bear I drew a few months ago! I like his rounded design and the fact he's a tattoo artist. Inspiration hit me pretty hard when I saw photos of my friend who's covered in insane full-body tattoos. I want to explore that with a tasteful pinup of my bear and give him a reprise much like how I did with one of my other previous characters! It's gonna be real good, I can feel it!
I'm giving myself this week and next to finish pinup style works for a little bit. They aren't going away completely! Lately I've been more interested in exploring comics. I've had a lot of practice with the Star Ship comics as well as my 30k piece and I'm itching to do a narrative.
UPDATE REGARDING PSD's!
A while ago I made the decision to stop hosting my PSD's here on Patreon and upload them to my Google Drive. It was alright in the beginning, but after a time I realized updating who had access to the files, sending mass invites (Google has a daily quota so I'd have to send them out in daily waves), and a ton of other headaches made me reach the conclusion that I'm better off just hosting the files as attachments here on Patreon. I'll be getting around to posting the remaining PSD's here as attachments so they're more easily obtainable to everyone! Thank you for your understanding and my deepest apologies for the neglecting that content.
MY PATREON MESSAGING & CONTENT UPDATE
Last quick update! I haven't updated any of the dialogue or messaging on my profile since I created my page. I'll be going through it this week to give it the facelift it needs especially since I'm moving on to do more experimental works. The only thing that will be getting a change is I will no longer be uploading Patreon Exclusive works. It can be a decent driver to bring more people to my Patreon, but I'm feeling more confident that my works and my Patreon can do better standing on its own without the use of that strategy.
That about wraps it up for this week's update! I'll see y'all my Big Biters here for WIP Wednesday in a few days! Stay safe and clean out there, sweets. :3
Fox is on one of his rants again. Thankfully Wolf is there to keep him grounded. UwU
It’s hard to condense the last 6 years for me in a 3-page comic, but I did my best!
Gaining a following of 30k in such a short period of time scared the heck out of me. I wasn’t sure what to think of it at first, let alone what people would think of me. Some of my concerns were legitimate, but an overwhelming number of my fears were all in my head. Internal fears became a reoccuring theme throughout my creative life that impacted my thoughts and decisions. From the day I quit my job even through today. There’s no getting past it. You can only try to midigate it.
I’m not as strong as I’d like to be, but I’m sure as heck a lot stronger than I was when I first started. Understanding my own worth and respect took years for me to recognize and practice. If it weren’t for my friends and supporters like you, I wouldn’t have the confidence to keep trying new things and improve on what I’ve been building within myself for so long.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being with me. 💜🐺💜🐺💜
Got the first page done!! Just two more to go. Sheesh making comics takes so long. It’s a lot of work, but it’s great practice since I’m wanting to do them more often!
This entire project is a bit personal for me, which is why I’m really taking my time with it to make sure what I’m trying to convey is coherent. Not gonna get too deep with this, though. But I do wanna at least go into some things about what all this growth has been like and what it means for me. :3
Gonna start working on the next page! I’ll update y’all again when it’s finished. The last page isn’t very heavy with detail and info, so I hope to have this entire thing wrapped up by tonight or tomorrow. 💜
I hit yet another unexpected threshold over on my Twitter. 30K!!? It’s pretty wild for me to think about... I went from 20k to 30 in just a few months. Thank you all for helping to make that possible. ; w ;
When I hit 20k, I wanted to draw something special to commemorate the milestone. I was so bogged down with work and projects that I wasn’t able to create something special on the side. This time I wanted to create something special and open up a little on my feelings with garnering a large following and what that means for me. I’m making that my focus this week. :3
Here are the thumbnails for it so far! I’ll be working on this throughout the day and sharing updates as I progress. I think it’s important for me to go into my background a little and my journey into freelancing. Starting out with only a few hundred followers and the rampant growth that affected me in deeply personal ways. It’s been nice settling down a bit and thinking this project out. I hope you find it interesting. :3
I’ll share another update here in a few hours! Thank you. 💜🐺💜
Wolf has a hard time accepting that he’s not in the shape he used to be. But to Fox, he loves him no matter what shape he takes. UwU
Tucker and Andre had been neighbors for about 10 years now. It’d never occured to them that they might one day find themselves falling in love with each other on Andre’s cheap rug.
Tucker had moved in from far out of town. Burning his bridges after realizing nothing was tethering him to his hometown anymore. A mind and body ready for new experiences and friendships. Although determined, Tucker feels his life lacks direction. College felt like a bust, so he left before he was in too deep in a degree he didn’t want. He needs something else, yet he doesn’t know what that is.
His new neighbor, Andre, was a much older gentleman who had seen and done it all. He spent his years building his own restaurant empire in town, simply called “Andre’s”. Opening 4 locations downtown and running it all like clockwork. He can do the business stuff just fine, but Tucker had always felt at home in the kitchen. It’s one thing to eat baked mac and cheese. It’s another to have Andre’s mac and cheese. Everything he cooks comes with years of direction and experience. Failures and successes. But all that amounts to the things he’s missed out on. He’s been in love, sure. But not for 20 years. His work was his lover. It took as much as it gave. It was always there for him.
After Tucker moved into the apartment next to Andre’s, his sensitive sniffer picked up the delicious scents the meal Andre had prepared to welcome his new neighbor. Still, he acted surprised when Andre invited him over for supper. Before long the two became very close friends. Sharing meals, stories, and everything about themselves. Tucker would try to cook for Andre, but would usually resort to takeout by the end of the endeavor.
This went on for a few years until they could both feel a sort of friction between them. Not the friction of anything ominous or concerning. More like the feeling of pieces coming together. Pieces fitting into the empty spaces they had in their own lives. Something about the times they’ve shared together was making them feel whole.
It all came together after they celebrated Tucker’s 10-year mark in moving into the neighborhood. Andre and his friends surprised Tucker at Andre’s restaurant with incredible food and laughs. During dinner, Andre’s eyes met Tuckers and they both felt the friction come to a snap. Their surfaces were now complete and smooth. No sign that anything was missing. They knew they were in love.
The night ended with Tucker back at Andre’s house where they had their first kiss. It escalated pretty quckly as you can imagine. Nearly a decade of desire that was kept between them exploded into something to finally put an end to the things they had been missing. Andre had helped Tucker find a more clear direction in what he wanted out of life. Tucker had helped Andre find love in something other than his career. Those thoughts and emotions manifested into every kiss and grope they pressed onto each other. Taking form into several rounds of lovemaking until the night became day.
Finally, they were together at last.
Ya’ll I’m really wanting to do more pieces like this. Having a wonderful time putting this together. 💜
Gonna spend a few more hours on these guys before doing the final renders tomorrow. I wanna wind down this evening by starting Monday’s Star Ship comic strip.
Thank you for following along!! Gonna get these boys ready for their debut on Friday. :3
Whew!! Thanks for holding out while I got this far!
I’m really, really loving this piece a lot. It’s taking me a while for sure, but it’s a pace that’s helping the illustration come together organically. I’m really loving the puppy’s face a lot and him having his glasses askew a bit adds a bit of personality to the piece.
There are still a few things I wanna fix. I don’t like the cat’s placement of his left paw but that’s an easy fix!
Gonna put a few more hours into this before I call it a night. I’ll share the flats if I’m able to get to that point tonight. If not then I’ll definitely make an update on Thursday!
Hope you’ve enjoyed following along so far tonight. The updates are spread pretty far apart but I wanted to wait until I reached certain thresholds before I posted anything. This piece means a lot to me already and it ain’t even done yet. I’m glad I can share it with folks like you. :3
WHEW okay!! Gave the sketch a bit of a facelift. Really pleased with the more dramatic pose and expression. Just the sort of new rigging this piece needed!
I’m also thinking about thumbnailing my coloring more in my sketch. I feel like after a certain point beyond the sketching phase I sort of just “wing it” or work too loosely with an idea. Gonna experiment with thumbnailing my progression more so I have a much clearer direction with what I’m gonna do.
Anyway sharing the lineart here in a couple of hours! Stay tooned. UwU
Hey!! Got bit by the Spring Cleaning bug today and took the time I had away from work to do some tidying up! I was working on this between breaths and wanted to show you were I’m at so far!
It’s still VERY much in the beta stages. I wanted to move the pup’s head closer to his friend’s maw to finally draw some make-out action! I adore adding romantic elements to the adult content I make. The sex alone can make something rather adult, but the feeling of romance is an element I love adding to up that special factor. A little long winded explanation but it’s how I FEEL, friend.
Anyway I’m done cleaning for a while! Gonna make this my main focus and share a tidied up version for you here in an hour or two! Gonna keep taking my time with this to make sure I make something truly special. 🐺 💜
Thank you very much!
All I’ll say is drawing someone being picked up by the nipple... I was visibly uncomfortable drawing it, haha. But that just comes with the job sometimes. 🐺💦
I love making these comics so dang much. Hope you liked this one!
Hey, y’all! Hope you’re as safe and cozy as you can be right about now. I’ve been holding up alright myself. The biggest thing for me is missing my friends a lot. Seriously looking forward to going out and seeing them again when all this is over. Taking it all day by day as best as I can. :3
WELCOME NEW PATRONS!!
Got quite a bit of you to thank!! Special thanks to Bismutt for becoming this month’s Culinary Creature!! I finished his commission last week, showing off his partner Howlite dadding it up! Had a blast creating that piece for you, bro. So happy your man loves it, too!
Big, buttery thanks to Carlos Gonzáles, Bauske Destad, MightyBeast1506, Darren, ylsun, Woebbi, Gloober, Winged0ne, Pixrent, Dominic Cortez, McHaunch, Morgan Zephyr, Robster, Rolan Jackal, Large Gut, Snelly, Baruke, Jakob Garner, Pewger, and D for becoming this month’s patrons!!! Gosh, so many of you! Thank you all so, so much for supporting me, especially considering the days we’re living through right now. Your support means everything to me. Thank you for helping me and finding value in the things I create. 💜
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK
I’ve had a lot of ideas spinning around my head this week. First of all I’ll be finishing up this week’s Star Ship strip here in about an hour after this update. I have all the linework finished. Just gotta throw down the colors!
I’ve wanted to do a lot more experimenting with comics and other ideas. So pinups will likely be taking a backseat so I can focus on some of these bigger ideas. While I have some pretty decent ideas, I think they need just a little more time to bake in my brain before I can commit to the idea. Some of the comics I have in mind are going to be more than just 4-panel bits. I hope to make them into a full on multi-page series if possible.
Part of the main reason why I’ve been doing the Star Ship comics is so I can get back into the flow of making comics. Haven’t made any real comics in a few years so I want to be sure I’m as confident as I can be when I fully commit to one again.
In the meantime, I want to do a cute, sexy singlet or underwear piece. Something with the quality I expect from myself while also not going super overboard. I’ll play around with some sketches this week and have something worth sharing by Wednesday!
Thank you all so much for following along with today’s update! Although the weeks a months to come are going to be tough, the best medicine for me is continuing to stay creative and productive. The work I create brings so much joy to me and so many others. Providing creative comfort motivates me to keep my head high and put 100% of who I am into the things I make. I have y’all to thank for that motivation.
Stay safe out there! 💜🐺💜
Major shoutouts to Chadwick for becoming this month’s Culinary Creature!!
He got the slot so he could gift his boy this surprise illustration. Man has a heart of candied gold. There’s nothing I love more than going all in on personal art pieces for someone, especially when it’s meant to be a surprise for someone! Hearing that someone is a big fan of my work and working on something for them in secret tugs at my heartstrings, haha.
Here’s Howlite, all dad’d up and ready to share some bedspace with you. The night is warm enough to sleep with the windows and the patio door open. The smell of the fresh air mixing with the intoxicating aromas the big, burly badger gives off provides a blend of comfort and arousal. It’s hard to explain... But it becomes more clear to you after hearing the bellowing of his confident voice, calling you in for a close cuddle. It’s so warm you don’t even need any blankets. Just each other. 💜
Thank you all so much for following along with me this week! Looking forward to another creative week with y’all. Got some comics mostly doodled up. I’ll try and share them before the weekend is up if I can! Trying to keep things real calm and organic for me so I don’t spin myself out. 💜🐺💜
Thank you for waiting up! Took some time but I was finally able to lay out the flats colors. He’s a very detailed boy, but I’m SUPER happy with the composition and everything so far. Giving this boy all I GOT! 🐺 ✨
I want to thank everyone for following along on this week’s piece! The highlight of my week is sharing my progress of my pieces with y’all. It’s one thing to get the traction and interaction through Twitter, but sharing my progress on Patreon is a bit more personal for me. Your feedback, jokey bits, and wholesome comments gives me the light I need in these darker times. I appreciate it a lot. :3
I’ll be sharing the final of this on Friday!! See y’all then! 💜
All clean and tidy! Now if only we could do something about those bedsheets...
Even though I don’t take commissions very often, I get find a lot of joy in creating a custom made piece for someone. Especially when it’s a surprise gift for someone! Giving this one my all. So happy Chadwick loves it so far!
Slappin on them flat colors next! Update coming again soon. :3
Here’s the sketch for this month’s Culinary Creature commission for Chadwick! He’s dedicating the slot for a surprise piece for his boyfriend, Howlite! But he doesn’t know about it yet. No spoilers!!
I’m running each pass to Chadwick first before I post any updates here. I wanna make sure I nail his vision before the updates come in. Moving onto refining the sketch and adding all them necessary, delicious-daddy details!
Cleaned up version coming in a few hours! 💜
The origin story of how Fox learned to love extra spicy Thai food.
Also I like to think that after this happened Fox has to be Wolf's guide dog for a couple of days.
Hope y'all like it!! I love making these comics so dang much.
The strip and my update is coming a bit late today. The start of the week got ahead of me but I'll posting my weekly update here in a bit! 💜
The more I worked on this piece, the more a narrative came to mind involving a guy who explores dungeons and falls in love with a minotaur. Seems silly, and it should! A plot like that has a lot of potential for romance, comedy, and steamy bits. The more I thought on it, the more attached I got to these characters.
I'm wanting to explore different types of content more. Lately comics have been on my mind. The Star Ship comics were an unexpected success that started out as a joke I wanted to put to paper. The motivation to try out new characters and ideas is pretty strong. Haven't felt that way about comics in quite a long time.
The thoughts on this post are a bit of a tangent, so I apologize!! Just some thoughts I had while creating this piece. I want to sketch out what a comic involving these two might be like over the weekend. If I come up with any fun concepts I'll share them here for y'all to see and get some feedback!
As a reminder I'll be taking next week off to get some much needed creative rest. I won't be going hard and all in on illustrations next week, but I'll be doing my own fun doodles and sharing them here so it's not dead air for an entire week! I hope you'll understand. :3
Lastly I'll be uploading files to the Drive here next!! Thanks for waiting while I got to that task.
Thank you all SO much for your incredible support for the last couple of weeks. I'm extremely grateful to have folks like you encouraging me to do what's right for me creatively and personally. Enjoy your weekend and as always stay safe! 💜🐺💜
I wanted to draw them squabbling and shouting at each other but remembering how much they love each other. Because love can stink a little (or a lot) sometimes. 💜
Thank you for hangin tight!!
Been super pouring myself into this piece this week. Hot dang I'm so inspired right now. I think a lot of it has to do with some self revelations and some insecurities I've gotten over in the past several days. Feeling super refreshed and calm. UwU Much like these boys!!!
Man I can't wait to put more work into this tomorrow and Friday. Gonna take it real chill and let progress happen organically.
Thank you all so much for supporting me and following along today! This WIP Wednesday has felt particularly satisfying. Felt like I was at my best the entire way through. Looking forward to having these two lovers finished by Friday!
Take care of yourselves until then! 💜🐺💜
Thinkin that the dog there probably fell in love with this beastie while dungeon crawling. After a few trips down the catacombs they soon fell in love! The narrative needs some work... but it has a lot of potential for a cute setting! I wanna add a dungeon-y background and probably have the dog dude's adventuring gear nearby.
It's been lovely letting go and working on this at my leisure today. Hope you're liking it so far!
Gonna slap on some colors next and sketch out the bg. See you in another 2 hours!
Been aching to draw a Minotaur again! They're so hunky and dorky. I love them. UwU
Taking my time with my progress today. Don't wanna rush it since I'm feeling real good about it already! Took some extra time to figure out how I wanted to position the guy on top of him. Hoping to make this a horny/romantic piece. :3
Gonna focus on having the linework version in the next 2 hours!
My first koopa-sona. Which is sort of a weird thing to type out loud... "koopa-sona". But heck it makes me happy to give him a name and an image! Honestly while the trials leading up to the finished image was a lot for me at first, the end result is something I'm truly happy with.
Y'all have my deepest thanks for your patience last week. I've realized I don't need to put so much pressure on myself all the time. You gave me the lift I needed to give it my all and more on this piece as well as with myself on a personal level. Super grateful to have a base as wholesome as you. :3
Get ready for some Minotaur realness tomorrow!!! The layout for the next bit is looking so dang fine.
See you then, Big Biters!!
Hope you’re keeping life safe n clean. Let’s get into what I got goin on this week for you!
WELCOME NEW PATRONS!!
First I want to thank 💜Zaffytaffy💜 for being the next top-tier patron!! Dude I can’t thank you enough for signing up for this particular tier. Given our current climate, it means so much that you’re willing to provide for me and all of my creative endeavors. Deeply and truly, thank you. :3
And the same goes for SwatKat, Regal, Sin, Roylee, JrSonic 2003, Stefan Vincent, and Ant for supporting me, too!! The kindness from people like you and all of my other supporters gives me the lift I need to keep pushing forward with my projects and challenges. Looking forward to another amazing month with y’all. UwU
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK
For starters, I want to thank all of you for the encouragement while I put together last week’s illustration. I feel the restart was a super good move for me. While I’m still in the midst of coloring it, I should have it completed today!
Thursday I had scheduled a 1-week vacation to go to Hawaii with my friends, but that had to be cancelled for obvious reasons. So my vacation has turned into a staycation! Thing is... I’ve had a really difficult time forcing myself to not work. I felt it necessary to keep working on my Patreon work during my vacation. This space has been so therapeutic for my creativity to flow more freely and focus on the projects that matter to me most. But part of that process is knowing when to take time off for myself. Knowing when to cool off is important if I want to keep creating content.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how I want to keep making content here and give myself the balance I need to stay motivated and healthy. I’ll be giving myself a week off Patreon every 6 weeks or every other month. On top of the work I do here, I also work full-time in the games industry as a concept artist. It’s a LOT of work to do my job, Patreon, and my own personal projects at the same time. These breaks are something I need. I hope y’all can understand. ; w ;
In terms of what I’ll be doing this week, I have a concept for a hot-as-heck Minotaur illustration! I haven’t sketched him out yet, but I’ll definitely have something to share in time for WIP Wednesday! After that, however, I’ll be taking the week off to refocus and take a much deserved breather.
I hope y’all understand where I’m coming from. A year and 3 months of solid, weekly illustrations and comics without a break isn’t healthy for anybody. Taking these breaks will help lift my mood, ensure newer projects can come in, and will directly impact the quality of my work. I want to make stuff I’m proud of. Not for the sake of keeping a schedule, but for the sake of my own happiness and fulfillment.
I don’t say this enough, but I’m genuinely thankful for the friends and the fanbase I’ve made over the past year here. Thank you for sticking with me and for genuinely the best group of supporters ever. 💜🐺💜🐺💜
So far so good!! Still a few more adjustments I wanna make before I lay out the colors. I’ll update y’all again with the flats when I have them!
Basically today is going to be a WIP Wednesday but I’m opening it to everyone since I wasn’t able to make my usual post on Friday. Hope you’re digging the process so far! 💜
I can’t thank you enough for all the encouraging comments from my last update. :3
Going in I felt pretty defeated, but your kindness gave me the lift I needed to regain my confidence and try again! I’ll put a few more hours into this tonight and post the lineart later tonight or tomorrow. 💜
Also, shoutout to Coal for suggesting the Bunny!! I realized I hadn’t drawn one at all since starting my Patreon! It was a refreshing challenge. 🐺 ✨
This week’s illustration is turning out to be a real puzzler for me. I’m having so much difficulty drawing in the extra character at Klank’s rear. Earlier I reached out for suggestions on what species you thought the character should be and got some great ideas from y’all! But even after sketching out all of the examples a few times, I realized more and more that I may have drawn myself into a corner here.
Right now, I have 2 options:
1. I can keep trying to make this one work. I tried having him just riding a toy, but that wasn’t what I originally had in mind. One of the driving ideas behind the piece was to have him engaging with a character that the viewer can easily see themselves being. I’ve also been wanting to do more duo illustrations to up my character interaction pieces. It might take a lot of edits with what I have, but it could potentially be done.
2. The other option, and one I’m sort of leaving towards, is starting over with another illustration but with the same character and concept. I have an idea for another angle that would be much better suited for the idea I have in mind. The downside is I would likely be drawing it well into the evening, so it would be a much later upload than usual. As troublesome as that is, I’d much rather be late posting something I’m proud of rather than something that’s on time and feeling rushed.
Thank you for being patient with me. I take a lot of pride in maintaining a rather consistent schedule here with my Patreon for more than a year now. Having to make an update like this makes me feel a little bit vulnerable to be honest. But for me it feels like the correct thing to do is to be honest with myself and honest with you, too.
I think for now I’m going to sketch what the alternate take on the piece and share the sketch here for feedback. If you want me to keep going with the original idea, then I’ll do that! But if you feel happier with the alternate, I’ll move forward with that direction.
That sound ok? 🐺💜
Gettin there!!! I don't want to force too much on myself while I work on this. Still needing to conceptualize his partner there in the back. Any suggestions from the crowd on what species of friend who's snackin on him back there? :3
Gonna work on some day job tasks and come back to this later tonight! Technically I'm on a 1-week vacation so I'll be doing a LOT more relaxing than drawing for a change. Going at this for over a year without a proper break is tough. Whew.
Gonna have Klank and his friend finished up for y'all by Friday as usual! Thank you for helping to fund this illustration and for your engagement. I look forward to all my posting days to share what I've been working on and get y'all's feedback. 🐺💜
Rounded him out in a way that I'm MUCH more comfortable with! Nothing more satisfying than improving on an old concept sketch and bringing it back to life. Super digging this guy and this piece again. :3
Left some parts un-inked because I want to do a more painterly fade with his tail and possibly his ponytail. I'm also not super set on the design of the guy behind him just yet. Gonna ponder that some more as I move towards the coloring phase!
Updating you again in another 2 hours! Thank you for following along so far. I love sharing my progress.
A little while ago I wanted to make a Koopa-sona for myself. Sketched out this big beastie to play around with some size difference stuff. Probably has his a good bud behind him snackin on his rump while twistin his crank.
There are a few alterations I wanna fix with the sketch. Mainly just readjusting his chest so it's more forward rather than twisting to the side a little. Still, I feel this is a great start!
Gonna make some corrections then post the lineart version here in about 2 hours!
Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening, sweeties!
Hope you’re all holding up as best as you can. I’m doing pretty good myself! Staying indoors, listening to music, playing Animal Crossing, cooking, and putting more time into hobbies I had to put on the back-burner. The very least I can do is keep making the content that makes me and so many others happy. Let’s get started, yeah? :)
WELCOME NEW PATRONS!
Big, big thanks to Noah Infusino and JamesThePolarBear for becoming my latest patrons!! During times like these, it can be difficult to make generous contributions to artists. It means a lot to me that you and so many others here are willing to make the extra effort to support me and my projects. Your generosity is taken to heart and that love will go directly into my future works. Thank you very, very much! 🐺 🍭
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK
March of Dragons is nearly over now, huh? Came and went so quickly!! Still, I have an obligation to make a sultry, swole dragon to wrap things up! And what better way to do that than with a Koopa??
Not Bowser, I’m afraid. A few weeks ago I designed my OWN Koopa sona—Klank!! He’s a big, beefy, dumb, horny, gooby.... well you get the picture. I wanted to break him in using this month’s theme. Thought it’d be a perfect way to wrap up this month. Already got this weeks illustration pretty well drawn out! I’ll queue up the posts for WIP Wednesday now so they’ll be ready right off the bat!
Super looking forward to ending this month’s projects. Got plenty of goodies planned for next month. Can’t get too excited for those just yet! Gonna take it day by day. Thank you all so much for your amazing support. Couldn’t do it without you. :3
You could probably make a well balanced list of the pros and cons living with Gus. As a dragon, he can be a bit cocky and a huge slob. On hot days he'll strip down to his nothings and just splay on the sofa, leaving his clothes and ice cream wrappers scattered about the living room. He's hygienic where it counts, but he can get rather ripe in a few days, too.
Gus only has 3 pairs of underwear. One he considers his "lucky pair". The elastic barely holds up and the holes in the fabric leave nothing to the imagination. Making for the perfect thing to bite down on when getting an eye and lung full of his junk. No need to replace em if they serve their purpose just fine.
Thank you all so much for supporting my piece this week!! If it were up to me I'd draw dragon boyfriends all day, every day. But this will do for now. Hope you like. :3!
Thank you for waiting!! Here's what they look like with a lil bit of color.
I wanna have a groovy, cozy living room with a balcony going on in the background. Since y'all are roommates, it makes sense that you n Gus practice your rituals in the comfort of your own home.
Super jazzed to have this finished for y'all by Friday! See you then. :3!
Hooo yeah!! I still wanna put a rugged, torn a-shirt on Gus here. I’ll work on that during the flat color update.
See y’all again in 2 hours!! 💜
Ho yeah. Somethin a little more scandalous this month! Got all that romance out of my system. ;3
Gus, your kinda lazy, stanky roommate has a lot of the same urges as you. And what a pair you two make... 💦
Posting the lineart version in 2 hours!! Super stoked for this one. 💜
Ho boy. It’s only Monday and what a week it’s been already!! Hope everyone is staying sanitary and safe. Been thinking a lot about my distant friends and just everyone in general during this time. Be well and stay safe, y’all! 💜
WELCOME NEW PATRONS!!
Holy smokes—so many of you!!!? I’m tremendously grateful!! Thank you to trendain, selis, tecwyn, sir gull, mia, valcre, GammaBlu, Marcus, Hamilton W, Wakewolf, Austin Miller, sewer gator, hYpErRiFiC - Buddy Goodboy, John Hawley, Jeffrey, Patchhes, Hound, Isaac Padilla, and NackV! I pour all that I am into the pieces I make. It’s so much fun coming up with new concepts and characters and bringing them to life. Being able to share those experiences with folks like you has so much meaning to me. Thank you all so much for driving me forward. ; w ; 💜
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK!!
With the Gavin piece finished up, I’m ready to move onto a new dragon boy! Already got a lot of headway into the illustration already!
This feller bein a sort of grungy, grungy, but warmhearted dragon who also happens to be your roommate! He spends a lot of his time at home, lounging in some old briefs and a tattered t-shirt that should have been replaced years ago. He’s a real treat to be around though.
You’ll see. ;3
Thank you for following along with today’s update! Came in a little late but I’m so excited to put more time into my projects this week! More updates coming this Wednesday as usual. 🐺 ✨
After a long, impassioned lovemaking session with Gavin, you two spent the entire night just talking. About everything. Each topic organically spurring into another. Laughs and heartfelt exchanges of support warmed your hearts as the sun began to beam through the stained glass windows to the bedroom. Time seemed like an afterthought as you realized you had kept each other in good company all night long. 💙
A little somethin on the romantic side this time! Gavin is such a hunk. He seems like the sort of dude who’d get so engrossed in what you’re saying. Sometimes losing himself, just staring back at you with romantic delight. UwU
Thank you all so much for your support this week. Couldn’t do it without ya. :3
Real smooth, Wolf...
