Hey all, I’ve been on hiatus so I couldn’t post a bunch of art from the OK KO episode I’ve worked on but I’m back now and I can post some of it! Here’s some select art I did for the episode “I am Dendy” working off of the great boards by Mira and Geneva.
I had a lot of fun doing the designs for the arcade and air hockey machine, it’s always nice to be able to add personality to props to help build the world and story!
FYI for those that remember the situation with the Yuri on Life art having the rings removed by the publisher, despite the original artist having drawn them on (you can read about it here), it looks like the publisher actually listened to the uproar this time.
The back cover, the poster included, and the acyrlic stand/keychain do have Yuuri’s ring.
This is good for us who want the poster and the acrylics as merchandise to display. Now it’s accurate (though I wish Victor weren’t wearing gloves so his ring were visible as well).
It absolutely confirms that this was blatant censorship by the publisher (which is again, not MAPPA but Fusousha), and it does show there might be a potential for fan outcry to actually change things again in the future? I don’t think it will have impact on generic anime magazine images where they’ve chosen to not allow rings, because by the time they preview those, they’ve probably already gone to print, but we’ll see what happens in the future on YOI exclusive publications like this, at least.
This is a situation where Japanese fans were literally planning to outright refuse to purchase this book (which being that it’s the Animate Exclusive, is a good 30 USD book) if the ring was not added in, which frankly, good for them.
That combined with the artist letting it slip that the ring was erased from their art, when they had drawn it on in the original image, put the publishers in a tight spot. However tbh I thought Fusousha would still go with it as planned.
I’m giving them zero pats on the back for changing it back to having the ring because it never should have been removed in the first place, but I am giving Japanese fandom all the props for sticking to their guns and expressing their dissent and being assertive until someone was finally forced to listen, because this continued erasure (because it is that), is bullshit.
(No love to any fan who harassed the poor artist though.)
Modern!AU You hate James Barnes with a burning passion and the feeling is entirely mutual. Just when you think things can’t get any worse, you are tricked into attending his sister’s wedding as his girlfriend. Stuck with a bunch of strangers, you come up with a set of rules that are not going to last long.
Warnings: Hate to Love, Fake Dating, Snarky Remarks, Language
A/N: Okay, just a warning, there will be a lot of OCs in this series (mostly Bucky’s sisters and parents) Hope you like the first chapter :)
You loved Natasha’s apartment. It was spacious and bright
and she had a great view of the city. There was just one teeny-tiny itsy-bitsy
problem… you hated her neighbour.
James ‘Bucky’ Barnes.
Natasha introduced you to Bucky a little over a year ago. Her
fiancé, Clint, adored him and Bucky always stopped by their apartment. The boys
would stay in the living room and watch TV while you and Natasha gossiped and
drank wine in the kitchen.
Hi! I'm sorry to bother you but I was wondering if you've ever done an icon tutorial? Your icons are really the most beautiful I've seen, and I'd love to know your secrets 😊. But if you aren't interested in posting them I totally understand. I hope you're having a great day!!
EXTENDED ICON TUTORIAL
Hey sorry this took so long to get around to but I finally felt inspired to make this. A couple things first. I want to give a special shout out to argetnallison cuz I learned how to make icons from her tutorials here. I picked up a few tips and tricks that aren’t included in other tutorials so we’re gonna call this an extended icon tutorial. I’ve also been told I explain things well but if there’s anything from this that needs clearing up later just send me a message and i will be happy to help guide you through it. This Is my first time making a tutorial so bare with me if I ramble.
Warnings: NSFW, 18+, Oral (both receiving), masturbation, bondage, biting, daddy kink, literally 90% of this is PURE FILTH
Notes: I had no restraint on this. Y’all can blame @minhosmeanhoe for literally demanding this from me, and giving me things to add to this because we would just talk about everything kinky with Void. Lemme know your thoughts!
Requested! Love this one, super fluffy. Oh and don’t forget to answer the question at the end. Thanks.
Incoming call: Shawn <3
“Hey Babe.” You answer.
“Hey.” He says, it sounds like he’s driving.
“Get your blankets ready.”
“I’m coming over.”
“Why do I need blankets ready?” Your mind going to a dirty reason.
“Nap date.” He says.
“Oh my god really?”
“Yeah, I wanted to take a nap but naps are always better with you. I’ll be there in 5, be ready.”
“I love you, be safe.”
“Always am Baby, always am.”
“Ok then speed a little bit.” You giggle.
“Already am Baby, already am.” He laughs.
“Shut up and get here.”
“Love youuuuuu.” He says before hanging up.
You giggle and jump grabbing trash and your lunch plate from the coffee table.
The door opens and heavy feet walk in as you are in the closet grabbing blankets. You are trying to reach the top shelf, standing on your tip toes reaching out to get it. That’s when a chest is pressed against your back and a hand reaches up and grabs the blanket you are trying to reach.
“Thanks.” You say going to turn around as the blanket is thrown on your head and you are picked up. “Ahh Shawn.” You scream as he throws you over his shoulder.
“I said be ready.” He chuckles.
“I was getting there.” You defend, hitting his back. “Nice ass by the way.” You say watching him walk. He laughs and then throws you on your bed.
You are still wrapped up and covered completely in the blanket he threw on you. You hear him laughing and feel him trying to find you.
“There you are.” He smiles freeing you from the blanket.
“Here I am.” You say meeting his gaze.
“How’s my Blanket Monster?” He asks, propping himself up on his elbow, head resting in his hand.
“Pretty good, ready for a nap.”
“Well that’s good.” He smiles.
“And how’s my super good looking boyfriend?”
He blushes and shakes his head, dropping his head to hide himself.
“Tired, and misses you.” He says looking up.
You scoot closer to him and kiss his pout.
“I miss you too.” You whisper looking into his eyes.
He doesn’t respond but fiddles with his fingers, looking down.
“Hey.” You caress his cheek, making him look at you. “What’s up?”
“I just feel like,” He starts but cuts himself off.
“Talk to me Shawn.” You say taking his head in both hands. He still refuses to look at you, looking everywhere but your eyes. “Shawn.” You say a bit more stern.
“I just feel like, maybe I’m not enough for you.” He whispers, finally meeting your gaze.
“Shawn.” You sigh, leaning your forehead on his. “Why do you feel that way?”
“Because you are always here and I’m not.”
“But you’re here now.” You crawl into his lap, straddling his legs.
“But not for long.” He says, eyes sad and broken.
“Why are you doing this?”
“I just, I feel guilty.”
“Why? Shawn I knew what I was getting into when I said yes to dating you. I knew that you were going to be on the road a lot, and that’s okay. I would give anything for you to have your dream and if that means I only get to see you for a few days every few months then its worth it. You’re worth it.” You run your fingers threw his hair.
“Are you sure.”
You let out a breathy laugh.
“Yeah I’m sure, absolutely positive.”
“I love you.” He says tilting his head up a bit.
“I love you.” You smile at him, pecking his lips.
This nap date doesn’t have much napping, but mainly cuddling.
Somehow he has lost his shirt, and you have shed of your sweat pants leaving you in your boyshorts.
He’s laying on his back, slightly facing towards you playing with your hair. You are tucked into his side, drawing random shapes on his bare chest, legs tangled with his.
He’s connected to the speakers her insisted you get, playing John Mayer softly in the background. With just your desk lamp on, leaving the room dim but bright enough to cast light onto his face, illuminating his beautiful features.
“Can I ask you question?” You ask silently.
“Was that your question?” He jokes. You push his chest, chuckling.
“Shawn.” You whine.
“Of course you can ask me anything. What’s up Baby?”
“Promise you won’t freak out on me?”
“Promise, although you are kind of scaring me.” He stops playing with your hair.
“Do you,” You start, regretting bringing this up.
“Babe?” Shawn asks softly, making you look up.
“Do you ever think about the future?” You ask, finally getting the nerve to.
“What about the future?” He digs deeper.
“Like, um, our, um, our future?” You stutter.
“Our future?” He says, a small smile appearing on his face.
“Yeah,” You say as he just holds eye contact. “Okay so this is where you say something because this silence has me worried that I just fucked up,” You say starting to become nervous.
“Yeah, I do.” He says chuckling at your reaction. “Keep asking me questions.” He says rubbing your back. You look back towards his wall and continue drawing shapes on his chest.
“Do you ever think about marriage?” You ask, feeling so small.
“Maybe.” He coos.
“Do you see us getting married?” You ask looking up at him. “Do you wanna marry me?”
Your heart stops when he closes his eyes and leans his head back. He gets up and starts to walk away.
“Shawn?” You ask sitting up. You watch as he walks to your closet. “Shawn Peter Raul, don’t walk away from me.”
You get up and follow him. He’s rummaging threw the drawer you cleared out for him, he’s taking his clothes out, looking for something. Until he finds what he’s looking for.
He turns to you, holding a small black box.
“Oh my god.” You say quietly. “How long has that been there?”
“Not long.” He says looking at the box in his hands.
“Shawn?” You ask softly.
“So yeah to answer your question, Yeah I wanna marry you.” He says a small smile creeping on his face. “I need you to answer a few questions.” He says looking up.
“If I ask you, what would you say?” He says, Adams apple bopping.
“You’ll have to ask to find out.” You say as he comes closer. You cover your mouth as he drops to one knee, taking your hand.
“This is not exactly the way I planned on asking you.” He smiles looking up at you. “But with you everything is perfect, you make me so happy Y/n. I can’t imagine my life without you. I don’t want to. Y/n, Will you marry me?” He asks looking down at the ring then back up at your smiling face.
“Of course.” You say softly. He smiles and quickly takes the ring out of the box, disregarding it to the floor before slipping the beautiful ring on your finger.
Looking down at your decorated finger, you don’t ever want to see it bare again.
“God I love you.” He says hugging you, arms wrapping around your waist since he’s still on his knee. You smile and pull him up to his feet so you can kiss him.
You pull away laughing and he hugs you, tight.
“This is the best date I have ever been on.” You say into his ear.
“I hope so.” He laughs, his breath tickling your ear.
“Okay, I have another question.” You say pulling away to face him.
“If this is about kids, can we wait a bit on that.” He says taking your hands. You laugh and shake your head.
“Yeah I think we can both agree to wait on that.”
He leads you back to bed sitting so you can stand between his legs.
“So what’s up?”
“What was earlier about?”
“Earlier?” He quirks an eyebrow.
“When you got here, and you brought up how you felt.” You say, playing with the curls at the nape of his neck.
“I think I was, for myself, needing to know that you were okay with us.” He says staring up at you.
“But, if you had the ring weren’t you already sure?”
“I was sure that I want you for life, I think I needed to make sure that you felt the same.”
“Did you get your answer?” You tease as he smiles at you.
He takes your left hand and runs his thumb over the rest of your finger that isn’t covered with the ring.
“Yeah I think I got the best answer.” He says letting the other hand that was on his knee grab the back of your thigh and pull you closer.
You move so you sit on his lap, straddling him again.
“Have I ever told you that I really like when you don’t wear pants?” He’s got a cheeky grin, fingertips dipping past the waistline at your hip.
“Getting hands there Mendes.” You smirk at him.
“It’s hard not to, soon to be Mendes.” You smiles.
“I like the sound of that.”
“But seriously, why haven’t you worn these before?” He asks still playing with the waistband.
“Because their new.”
“Yea?” He asks.
“Yeah, wanted to try em out, glad they got a thumbs up from you.”
“Make your ass look great.”
Now you’re blushing, hiding your head in his neck.
“I’ll get more then.” You say nodding.
“Please, please, please. If you do anything for me in life, please get more.” He begs.
“Okay,” You laugh. “If you wanted you could even come too.” You whisper in his ear, making his grip on your hips go tighter.
“Like a bride and groom shopping spree?” He giggles. “I’m in.” He nods.
