Photoshop/mechanical pencil and Photoshop, 2013
Realized I STILL hadn’t posted these up. Blimey.
This was some last-minute art I did for the “Playing Doctor” issue of Shousetsu Bang*Bang and the first time I illustrated a story I didn’t write myself! That honor goes to the lovely shukyou (who idly asked on Twitter if anyone felt like doing some art, and I figured, why not?); you can read the story that inspired these pieces here! Typical disclaimer applies: explicit M/M sex lies beyond.
For doing everything in what amounted to a weekend of mad panic I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. I had fun putting everyone in horrifyingly 70s attire without going for any jokes that were overly easy.
In my head, I like to think the fellow on the stretcher got stuck there during the promo shoot, so they just staged all the photos around him. The “can you believe this shit?” expression is only partially staged! They also tend to pair the lady doctor touching or otherwise closely interacting with the nurse in production stills, which no doubt inspired its own shared space in certain comb-bound fic collections next to the Starsky and Hutch hurt/comfort.
Fans have been doing this a long time, y’all.
