Day 6 - Favorite Fighting Type
This one was no contest. Hawlucha’s type matchups aren’t the best, but its design is amazing and its fighting spirit is unrivaled.
Day 5 - Favorite Fairy Type
I wasn’t sure if I should have put down a “true fairy” (aka new ones that were fairy type) or one that had Fairy retroactively added to it, so I did both! Both Florges and Gardevoir were mainstays in my party. Ridiculously so.
Day 4 - Favorite Electric Type
When I really thought about it I hadn’t really used any Electric types.
Anyway it came down to Helioptile and this came about from realizing that shiny Helioptiles look sunburnt to me and combined with their dex entry… yeah that’s how this one came about.
Day 2 - Favorite Dark Type
There were a lot of dark types to pick from but in the end I went with Pangoro since I do enjoy the idea of a bancho panda. I’d say Pangoro was also one of my favorites from X/Y and was a long time member on my team.
Honorable mention to Deino and its evolution line since the Dragon slot is firmly secured by another Pokemon (tune in tomorrow to see who).
Day 1 - Favorite Bug Type
Had this drawn yesterday, neglected to post, oops. Also yes I am posting one of these a day.
I’m sure other people have Scolipede as their favorite but I just cannot deny its amazing majesty. I also nicknamed mine Stumpy because reasons. Playing the Head It game was funnier than I should have found it to be.
(Special thanks to Lurker for helping me find one since the last version of Pokemon I got was Ruby and Not-Fun for telling me about this one many months ago during a stream.)
Call for Cameos (for DeSTRESS)
So obviously dS is still on hold, but I figure I’d let everyone know I’m holding a call for/”contest” to cameo in dS since there are going to be
too many some crowd scenes in the chapter and I might as well put in some cameos.
The original sheet of all of the monster girls. [High Res - Warning VERY LARGE IMAGE].
Also you can have this crappy 1st version of the first three girls (Centaur, Naga, Harpy). [link]
Those of you who are really observant and following Mr. Pilot may find the names Olye and Laroche familiar. I’m pretty certain this will now be their canon versions when they appear in-comic.
ANYWAY, ope you guys like these, I had lots of fun with drawing them!
I can’t wait until I can get back to my pages. /whinewhine
Once again updates/art are in a sad state. I know it’s “okay” and that “other things come first” but I don’t have to ~like it~. Updates of status are updates of status.
The end of schoolwork can’t come soon enough.
*Don’t expect to really get anything meaningful out of these, they aren’t very large pictures.
Diversity is Good, They Said and Didn’t Apply.
Venty, slightly irrational post. Honestly, there are only so many lame excuses I can read of people “defending” why creators/writers/artists don’t “have” to have a diverse cast/world before I waste a post talking about it.
AKA I take quotes and respond like an asshole in the safety of my own blog. (These quotes are typically defending why a 1:1 male:female presence and/or anyone but white people on their main cast is TOO HARD. This can also apply to body types but these quotes were not addressing these but could very well include them.)
DeSTRESS Chapter 6 Page 19 is up!

"You have been warned… I think" (Submitted by bii0sfantasticmustache)
Tossing in a read more since bii0 wasn’t kidding! This contains responses concerning characters and “shock events” such as the appropriateness of traumatic events like rape, abuse, etc. and other general writing opinions.
Warning for mentions of: Rape, Abuse
I am also responding to each chunk in their own block-quote (bii0sfantasticmustache = blockquote, me/blankd = normal text).
(I recommend using the Disqus section in this post if you wish to discuss things.)
Hello Blankd, I have a grotesquely ginormous mass of illogical and random questions I wanted to ask... Just because. Would it be alright if I sent them through submissions instead of questions? What does the submission button do on your end? I don't have one of those so I don't know what it does, does it work like the questions button? You can tell me to go fuck myself if you don't want to read them, they don't really have any rhyme or reason (More like, thinking out loud, curiosity stuff).
Of course you can!
The submissions button basically sends a regular Tumblr post to me and it arrives in my “ask” box, the differences are that I can edit, publish, ignore, queue, or delete it- I would never edit your content of course!
If it is an ask, what I’m likely to do is put your text content in a blockquote so that I can reply normally to it as well as a link back to your Tumblr (if you want it listed).
There are also some tags included in the submission page for if you want it replied to in private or publicly, etc. (I may also include some other relevant tags if necessary, if you have any tags you wish to include, you may provide a list as well as the bottom of your submission.)
Either way, when you send a submission, it does not automatically publish to my blog, I must approve it first, so don’t worry. 8)
I don’t know why I find it funny when random readers will ask if Raz and Mags (or just “everyone”) is gay in DeSTRESS.
I think my reply will almost always be, “I’ll let you figure that one out.”
And some kind of idle pondering is if that’s the biggest concern in the comic. Not offended or anything, I just find some people’s priorities of observation/questions very fascinating.
(If it’s any context, they tend to make this comment around chapter 2.)
Do you guys currently find character sexuality to be a make or break point in
comics edit: media? Did you in the past? What’s your stance now or what do you think is (for lack of a better word) achieved when a character’s sexuality is confirmed/denied by the author?
