So here we have the first and probably ONLY animated entrant in the Brutal Ballers anthro chara design project.
I’ve wanted to draw this guy for as long as I’ve been doing this series, but when I actually started, it took way longer than I ever imagined. There’s definitely a reason why most animation doesn’t have a ton of detail and shading.
But I really wanted a smooth morph, so it was important to fully render all 3 of those transition frames to the same level as the two main keyframes.
(The semi-transparent elements get really compressed when saved as an animated GIF so please also check out the still PNG versions below.)
Read Blowhard’s interview and then become my patron on Patreon to see this spunky twink and his little nub become a burly beast packing a fat sea monster!
INTERVIEWER: Hello, Blowhard. So you’re the 61st Brutal Baller to hit the scene, an anthro pufferfish. First off. I’ve gotta admit, I’m surprised to see a hairy fish man.
BLOWHARD: It’s not hair, it’s spines.
INTERVIEWER: Oh? It looks a lot like hair.
BLOWHARD: Well I’m part human so that shouldn’t seem that unusual.
INTERVIEWER: Yes but you rarely see a fish with hair.
BLOWHARD: (Puff Mode) I FUCKING TOLD YOU IT’S NOT HAIR, IT’S SPINES! FUCKIN AYE, BRO CAN WE DROP IT?!
INTERVIEWER: Yikes! Ok, please don’t hurt me! Those spikes are serious!
BLOWHARD: Spines, dude, not spikes. And yea, it’s the ultimate defense mechanism.
INTERVIEWER: I’ll say. Are guys in the league threatened by you?
BLOWHARD: Haha, they better be! But nah, they’re mostly turned on! Especially the chubby chasers. They like how big and powerful I get in Puff Mode. And they all love how fat and girthy this dick gets!
INTERVIEWER: It does get quite puffy. Have any of them actually had it?
BLOWHARD: Plenty of them.
INTERVIEWER: Can you give me any names?
INTERVIEWER: How about a hint?
BLOWHARD: (Puff Mode) I SAID NO! DON’T ASK ME AGAIN!
INTERVIEWER: Ok, sure. It’s just a little surprising because most of the guys say they’re afraid of your spikes. I mean spines!
BLOWHARD: Really? Well tell them not to be afraid. I can go Puff Mode without spines.
INTERVIEWER: Interesting! Can you do that now?
BLOWHARD: I don’t feel like it.
INTERVIEWER: So you’re saying you can control separate aspects of your Puff Mode, as you call it. Can you stay small and only put your dick in puff mode?
BLOWHARD: Of course I can.
INTERVIEWER: And you won’t do it now?
BLOWHARD: Not right now. I gotta be turned on.
INTERVIEWER: Fine. And for the record, Maelstrom, the giant octopus, known for topping multiple twinks at the same time, says he preferred your twink form last night.
BLOWHARD: (Puff Mode) I’D LIKE TO MOVE ON TO ANOTHER TOPIC! NOW!
INTERVIEWER: Fair enough. Can you explain why your jersey isn’t covered in holes right now?
BLOWHARD: Oh no one told you? Our jerseys are nanotech. They can appear and disappear whenever we want, sometimes float around us with sparkles and shit, like Sailor Moon. That’s how you guys in the media get all those half naked pics of us.
BLOWHARD: Yea, man, how do you think the cow and the reindeer get a shirt on?
INTERVIEWER: I don’t know… seems a little convenient.
BLOWHARD: (Puff Mode) FUCKIN’ MAGIC CLOTHES IS TOTALLY A THING MAN!
INTERVIEWER: A very implausible thing…
BLOWHARD: (Puff Mode) DA FUCK MAN GET OFF MY BACK! IRON MAN DID THAT SHIT IN THE LAST MOVIE! WE CAN TOO! YOU ASK TOO MANY FUCKING QUESTIONS!
INTERVIEWER: Security bots!
