A little while ago I was thinking about possible ideas for commissions. One of them was my pokesona as a Postal Dude, because I love Postal game series. But I didn’t want to commission ZiPo for that, I think his art style wouldn’t fit the theme, even though he likes Postal games as well. Nix was out of the question too, I mean, come on, cute Postal Dude? I needed something more crude. And artists I didn’t know personally wouldn’t be too happy with my lack of a reference sheet. But it so happens that my friend Jim has just the right style.
Back in May, during a Friday evening I was having some beer as I tend to (when I’m not on medication) while watching Markiplier’s sonic.EYX video. I liked how Tails looked there, or rather I felt a strong urge to comfort him. That’s how I came up with a prompt for this commission. ZiPo was glad he finally had an excuse to draw Tails because he had been wanting to for a while. I still had to wait almost five months because life happened, but here it is.
Originally ZiPo didn’t draw the sneakers because his reference images didn’t have them. I don’t know why he used these particular images or how it happened to be barefoot Tails, but I kinda liked how he drew the paws, so I asked to add the sneakers as an additional version rather than the only one.
Well, a couple of days ago I had a fun evening. Kinda proud to be a wannabe prepper.
Anyway, I came home after work at around 7PM, tired and hungry, inserted the key into the lock, turned it - and the key broke off with a half of it still being inside the lock. Nobody was at home and wouldn’t be for days. Great.
This one is pretty straightforward: my pokesona looks lovingly at yandere Twilight who’s in a schoolgirl outfit. Done, of course, by Nix. Did I mention I absolutely love yanderes? Although just the obsessive types, not the possessive ones.
For the longest time I had one avatar: a Terriermon with byakugan, a spiked collar and a tattoo. ZiPo came up with it for me after I told him how much I liked Terriermon from Digimon Tamers. But in 2016 I came up with a pokesona, Glaceon, an OC I could call my own. This is my attempt to show they are the one and same - me. I liked duality images kinda like this one from Poor Yorick, so I wanted something like that. ZiPo proposed the idea of a broken mirror and a butter knife which I liked. The mirror also means that the image is flipped, so the tattoo on Terriermon’s head is on the wrong side and reversed. Anyway, the result looks cool as fuck.
I was watching Sonic Boom (amazing show, very self-aware and funny) and started liking the character of Tails. He’s kinda like male Gadget Hackwrench. Then I saw this art and thought to myself: what if Tails meets his genderbent self? Cue Nix who drew this. Genderbent selfcest FTW.
In the first couple of episodes of DuckTales reboot Webby gave me very strong yandere vibes. Her elimination skills coupled with almost maniacally forcing herself on her cousins gave me that idea. So I asked Nix to draw Webby being yandere. Don’t know why she never published this piece anywhere despite posting something as grotesque as Rainbow Dash on a meathook.
I kinda like Dashabuse. I don’t know why. It’s in the same vein a number of people were into Scootabuse at some point (or maybe still are, but I haven’t seen that tag on Derpibooru in a long time). But I like Scootaloo and don’t like Rainbow Dash as much, also Cupcakes, so I wanted to see Rainbow Dash on a meathook with torn wings and disemboweled but still alive. Torn wings idea came not from Cupcakes (surprising, I know; but Pinkie was using a hacksaw to remove 1.5 of Rainbow’s wings) but rather from SWAG.MOV by hotdiggedydemon. And as a sort of a joke I commissioned Nix to draw all of that to test the limits of what she would draw. To my surprise, she agreed. It took some time, but here is the result.
RD is tough, she can take it.
Just a silly idea I had. Momentai kinda sounds like “мой минтай” (my pollock). So here it is.
Among other images I commissioned Nix with there was Detective Pikachu in noir style: his partner was shot, his wife left him and took the kids, he is drunk half the time etc… You know, Detective Pikachu from the game, not the movie. At least the original voice and the fact that Pikachu wasn’t at all agile made me think of such image. Actually, while I was waiting for her to finish (which took some time), someone made an entire animation of basically what I wanted to see.
