Bunk Buds

By | commission, muscles, Persuasions, Unzipped Media, xxx | 12 Comments
Here’s what I’ve been working on for the past few days. It’s for Freshmen and it’s to accompany a story about two college roommates who share a bunk bed, but of course, end up porking each other.

And next is a sketch I did on a flight a few weeks ago. It was really annoying because there was this guy who was one of those “I-need-attention-so-I-talk-to-strangers” types, and he kept trying to peek over my shoulder and see the drawing and make conversation with me.

Miami Review

POST EDIT (5-01-07): Colored the other two pieces.
Anyone liking this pastel look?
POST EDIT (4-27-07): I colored the “DEREK” character. Have a looksie.

So I’m back home. My partner and I jaunted down to sunny South Beach in Miami, Florida. It was very relaxing. The food was great and I saw enough fake titties to last me a lifetime.

For some reason, I was expecting the gay scene down there to be a lot more happening than it was. I had this idea that South Beach was one of the more infamous gay locales in the U.S. We ended up grabbing a few tourist guides before we went, and they further emphasized that South Beach has become more “straight” than it used to be. But it didn’t really hit me till we actually saw it.

It was still fun though– I mean, hell, I got to sleep on a beach every day! Of the few gay clubs that still existed, my favorite was Twist. No cover, eight bars, and hot gogo boys = a smashing good time. One thing that kind of disappointed me though was that the clubs and bars down in South Beach are very low-key any day but Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. You’d think that since Sunday is still a weekend day, that there would still be something going on in the clubs—but nope. I guess I’m spoiled living in New York where the clubs are in full effect every night of the week.

You’ll notice a few hot-guy drawings I put up along with this post, all inspired by my stay in South Beach. Oh yeah, that’s another thing that shocked me about that place—the lack of hot guys! Well, I’ll admit, the percentage of scantily-clad muscle boys did increase on the weekends. But during the week, the beach was pretty flabbalicious. My partner and I concluded that many of the locals must specifically come down to South Beach on the weekends only.

I’ll be coloring these pics eventually but for now I’ve got a ton of work to catch up with.

Peace Out

Hey kids. Just wanted to get one quick post in before I go on vacation for a little while. Enjoy this drawing of Zeker I just whipped up while watching Flavor of Love. (LOL)


Mii Obsession

By | Anti-Heroes, Caleb, Nintendo, rant, Tai, video games, Zeke | 3 Comments
So we bought a Nintendo Wii a few months ago– not because there are any cool games for it or anything– just to keep up our appearance as the obnoxious gay yuppies that have every new tekkie thing to come out.
One of the coolest thing about the Wii is the interface. You can create little avatars called Miis and play as them in certain Wii games (like WiiSports and WiiPlay.) Of course, I made the Anti-Heroes, as you can see below.


And below, take a look at some of the other Miis I made. Back Row: Large Marge and New York. Middle Row: Ripley, Two Weeks, and Nomi Malone. Front Row: Rhoda and Rosie O’Donnell.

Happy B-Day, Kitt

By | commission, elves, Fan Art, muscles, Unzipped Media, xxx | 12 Comments
So here we have a birthday present for my good buddy, Kitt. She is like the female version of me– into games, comics, animation) and is a fellow artist. I’ve been promising her an ElfQuest fan-art for months now and finally figured, hey, I’ll do it as a birthday present (since I’m extra-broke these days! haha)


I admit to never really being into ElfQuest. I remember my uncle had cases and cases of the original comics and when I was a kid, I’d sneak looks at them. For some reason I thought there was something implicitly dirty about ElfQuest. Something about it just made me embarrassed to admit I was interested in it. Maybe it had to do with the effemininity of the male characters… or the fact that they were quite often bare-chested. Whatever the reason, I didn’t really get into it.

We actually met the creator of Elfquest at NY Comic Con a few weeks ago. She and Kitt were going on like they’d known each other for years– it was weird. Anyhoo– this is “Cutter,” the main character of the series. Of course, on my site is the nuder version. (Natcherly!)

And next up is a piece I’ve done for Freshmen magazine. Hopefully my working relationship with them will become more regular because not only is getting paid a great motivator (heh,) it also makes for some interesting pieces for my portfolio. The story here is about a high school kid who gets “invaded” by a mysterious masked intruder. Again, on my site is a raunchier version.

The Heat is On

The scorcher above was originally an unused sketch for a job. I figured I needed some more variety of genres and man-types in my pin-ups so I modified the characters and turned the sketch into a promotional dealy. Inter-generational man-sex, dude. That’s a thing, supposedly. Oh but the young guy is over 18– promise! haha.


Aaaand, I’m also ploppin’ in the two drawings for Persuasions that I left outta the last post. Now that I know someone actually read it, I feel more confident giving up the cum-soaked “piece de resistance.” haha.

Persuasions: PHASE 1

By | hairy, muscles, Persuasions, twinks, xxx | 12 Comments
So after months of fiddling with it, I’ve finally decided to knuckle-down and launch this little thing I’ve been working with called “Persuasions.” You can find it in the EXTRA section of the Anti-Heroes site.

It’s an online gay erotic cartoon soap opera! …

I’ve always liked the soaps and I’ve always wanted to create something similar. I figured since there aren’t really any gay ones out there, I’d try that out.


The format is inspired by video games (hello, it’s ME!) Particularly RPGs or any game with a story mode where you see little icons representing the character that’s speaking. I love it when their facial expressions change according to their emotion.

Also, with Persuasions, I figured I’d give you guys a taste of my erotic writing. You know, I used to write and illustrate X-Men slash fiction and it was pretty well received on the internet. Of course, then I went through a “boycott all fan-art” phase and took all the stories offline. Wish I could find them– or better yet, the drawings I did with them.

Many of the illustrations in Persuasions were created specifically for the series. Some of them, I ended up being so proud of that I’ve started using them as promotional pieces. Particularly the one with Preston and Marq on the bed and the one with Brody and Seb in the shower. There is also one XXX pic that I REALLY REALLY like embedded within the story that I’m not including here on the blog. Why? Incentive for you guys to read the story!

There are also some older illustrations sprinkled throughout PHASE 1, some with new things added. This is because I really wanted to include some of my previously created characters in the story instead of making all new ones.



So hopefully, someone out there will find this series compelling– or hot. Either is fine with me. This is only PHASE 1, meaning that I will put out more installments in the future. I’ve got plans loosely strung about in my head, but am open to suggestions. For instance, like if you guys really despise a particular character, I’ll kill them off.

OK, I Know I’m a Freak

But I couldn’t resist! Birdie, Ibuki, and Akuma came in the mail today and I just had to spazz out for a second. Now my collection is complete! Kinda. Don’t have Sodom or Remy– but I didn’t want them anyway.


Isn’t the bucket full of extra heads and fists creepy?
Next post, we’ll get you guys some porn– promise!

Haggar Lays Pipe

By | Anti-Heroes, Capcom, Fan Art, muscles, video games, wet, xxx | 2 Comments
Glorious nostalgia was once again brought to me as I popped “Capcom Classics Collection” into my PS2 a few days ago. Me and wifey were in the game store and wanted to buy something but were peeved at their selection. So we bought a used copy of CCC becasue it was cheap and actually had the original Final Fight on it. I figure since I’ve been going on and on about Streets of Rage, I might as well remind myself of the game that originally got me into SOR.
Everyday after school, I’d stop by the local bodega where they had the Final Fight coin-op and popped in as many quarters as I had left from my lunch money. Some days, I purposely ate light just so I could have enough money to play it sufficiently. I never got very far. But I always picked big ‘ol Mayor Mike Haggar. He was my favorite. I don’t know why– I wasn’t into bears or big burly men or anything. Maybe I was just responding to what an ingenius character the guy is. This former Street Fighter, now Mayor of an urban hellhole, takes the law into his own hands, along with a couple knives or pipes.

When Street Fighter 2 replaced Final Fight at the corner store, I was awestruck and immediately forgot about Final Fight. Little did I know back then that Street Fighter and Final Fight were created by the same guy. And get this– SF2 was originally supposed to tie-in to Final Fight with the inclusion of Haggar! Sometime during production of the game, however, Haggar was changed into a new character, Zangief. This is the real reason why Zangief and Haggar have the same moves. To explain this in the storyline (now that Final Fight and Street Fighter are truly united) it’s said that Zangief and Haggar trained together. Sadly, Haggar hasn’t been playable in a Street Fighter game yet even though all his lackeys have. So this is my tribute to my favorite Mayor and a truly awesome game. (Which I finally beat since Final Fight on Capcom Classics Collection has unlimited continues! It’s almost the equivalent of popping about 10 bucks into a coin-op! ^___^)


I’m also including another censored Splash Page preview from Anti-Heroes Issue #3. This one features Nuke, whom I talked a little about in my last post. Enjoy!

Spotlight on the Bomb Squad

By | Anti-Heroes, muscles, Tai, Zeke | 8 Comments
Sorry ‘bout that last post. You know how it is when you have your own public space to say whatever you want. Sometimes ya get a lil’ ranty.
Anyhoo, I decided to give you guys a cool post. As you all know, I am an X-Men fan. For as long as I can remember I’ve been designing my own superheroes based on the idea of the X-Men. Such is the case with the Bomb Squad, my super-powered heroes for hire. If you are cool, then you bought Anti-Heroes #2, where the team makes its first appearance. Issue #3 (which is coming soon) will pit the Anti-Heroes against the Bomb Squad in a fierce battle! In this post, I thought I’d give you guys a bit of info on my bulgy new team and treat you to some sample panels of Issue 3! (Note: The image above is a very early incarnation of the team. Zeke and Toni have different roles in my comics and the character “Clod” was completely omitted.


NUKE
was probably the first c
haracter I created for the team. He is potentially the team’s most powerful member, able to generate explosive bio-nuclear energy. He is romantically linked with his teammate, Headcase.



PARASITE, AKA Rene Benet is another character I’ve been drawing for a really long time now. As Caleb’s ex, she’ll, of course, make our gun-toting, salami-packing, anti-hero question his sexuality. I won’t reveal her powers here because I think they’re going to come as a real shock to readers.



Up next is VISCOUS. She has the power to convert herself into a slippery liquid form. She’s a lesbo and I’ve paired her up with Canine. Shes a former club-kid and has problems with drugs.



CANINE, as her name suggests, can morph into a lupine state. She’s wild and savage and says whatever’s on her mind. She’s also got a humongous pair of knockers.


HEADCASE is a telepath and will have a grand psi-battle with Zeke, the Anti-Hero’s telepath. She’s somewhat demure but confident about her powers.


Then there’s WAIF. As many of you will guess, she’s my signature character. When I first designed her, I was erring on the side of grotesque, but when my friends saw her, they thought she was absolutely beautiful! I guess they were responding to the fact that she wasn’t built like my usual big-tittied, monster-thighed divas. Again, I’m not revealing Waif’s powers here because I think they’re integral to the progression of the story. All I’ll say is that she “morphs.”



BINKY has been added to the team to appease my partner who is obsessed with helper monkeys. Don’t quite know what a team of superheroes would actually use the monkey for, but I’ll figure it out… I guess.


The next three characters will actually not make an appearance in Anti-Heroes#3 as they were created after I started work on the issue. You will notice, the characters who did make the first cut are mostly chicks. I dunno why that came about. I think it might be because I wanted to focus a lot on the relationship between Caleb and Rene and I thought if I introduced too many male characters, I’d not be able to fight the urge to have them all screw each other. When the Bomb Squad makes their next appearance, you can bet these new boys will enter the fray.

First up is BLITZ, whom you’ve seen if you go to my site at all. He’s supposed to be a little on the grim side and has acids running through his big, throbbing, pulsing veins of his. I’m going to change those shoes though becasue they look like old-school Christopher Robin.

Then there’s REXTILE, the rough, gruff, man-lizard. I dunno what I was thinking making him hairy. It just dawned on me now that that doesn’t make too much sense—what with him being covered in scales. Ah well—that’s why this is a sketch.

Finally, meet FLUX, whom I just designed a few days ago. He can teleport things—kinda like a remote control Nightcrawler. I see him as a leader, a stiff upper lip type.

And there you have it! Crazy sexy superheroes, all worthy to fight alongside Marvel’s mighty mutants—just too cool to do so. Haha. I’m sure by the time I’m ready to do another issue centered around these guys, I will have thought of a kabillion more characters to put on the team. Ah well, such is the life of a gay fan-boy. Oh, and if this post looks a little wonky, layout wise, sorry. Blogger is misbehaving. Why do the compose and preview windows look nothing like what’s actually published? >__<>

Eff Capcom

By | Capcom, rant, Street Fighter, video games | 3 Comments
Warning: Nerdy Rant Below

Yesterday, I caught the review X-Play did on Street Fighter Alpha Anthology. I was really excited to see what they had to say about it because I like X-Play’s in-depth, hard-hitting, no-nonsense game reviews. However, I was dissappointed to see that they gave SFA Anthology the most glossed-over, sugar-coated review ever. All they said was, “We like Street Fighter,” over and over and reminisced about the old games included in SFA Anthology.

Anyone who really likes Street Fighter will not like SFA Anthology because, duh, they already own all the games. I’m sick to death of all these candy-ass reviews heralding SFA Anthology as the best thing since sliced bread. You already own these games! Why go out and buy them again?

Yes, I want a new Street Fighter but I’ll take what I can get, like most Street Fighter fans out there. Give us just a tidbit of new content, and we’ll eat it up– even if 98% of the rest of the game is recycled (cough cough Capcom Fighting Evolution cough).

The supposed new content on this Anthology is apparently the new ISMs. But get this, the new ISMs are only available to certain characters. I was so excited at the possibility of playing with a Marvel-ized version of Blanka or Sagat. But no, we get Ryu. If I wanted to play with the Marvel-ized version of Ryu, I’d pop in X-Men vs. Street Fighter.

Or Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter.

Or Marvel vs. Capcom.

Or Marvel vs. Capcom 2!

See my point? We’ve seen it over and over again and if we’re real fans, we OWN the games already!

In addition to that little slap in the face, they also didn’t decide to include the PSP or GBA versions of Alpha 3 which feature new characters and are essentially upgrades to Alpha 3. In truth, Street Fighter Alpha Anthology isn’t really an anthology because these games aren’t included.

I urge anyone who is thinking about buying this game to simply pull out whatever version of Street Fighter Alpha 3 they own and just play that. I mean, it just makes me mad because I want to buy it just to show the world that there are still people who like and want 2D fighters. But I should want to buy it to PLAY it, not to make a statement. And nothing about this game makes me want to play it.

That is all.

Streets of Rage Reborn

By | Fan Art, muscles, video games | 6 Comments
ZEKE: So, here are the finishes on those Streets of Rage characters. I’m still in disagreement with JC over his decision to make them non-pornographic, but he promises that if I’m good, he might make hot butt-nekkid cum-soaked versions of them. So let’s all keep our fingers crossed, shall we?

He switched it up a little on us by coloring these hotties in marker. He felt that he was relying too heavily on digital tools. But as you can very well see, he ended up ploppin’ them into Photoshop anyway– and the addition of only a few minor digital details turned into an 8-day Photoshop marathon. Oh wait, sorry. He wants me to tell you all it was only 4 days.

Blaze is cute… I envy her streetwalker outfit. Fuggin’ little slut. But let’s talk about the guys, Axel and Adam. I told JC to wipe those ridiculous fruity smiles off their faces (as they had in the original line drawings.) Damn him for making these studs clothed! Now it’s harder to fantasize. Ooh, if I got in the middle of a fuck-train with these two, we’d be a gradient!
