January 1, 2000; 00:00 - Reply Ket-Ralus: [gallery] <!--more--> This past Sunday evening I was in another oC session since I finally got my pen tablet drivers working properly. As usual, I couldn't decide what to draw, so I had Aquacoon suggest a subject, which was Dry Bones and Koopa Troopa. <ins datetime="2009-11-27T01:06:37+00:00">The session ended up crashing while I was still working on the sketch, but I took it into Photoshop to finish it over the past few days.</ins> I tried my best to stay away from poses I've done in the past, because I have a bad habit of unintentionally reusing poses, and that makes my work stale. My inking and coloring was somewhat influenced by the style of the Mario Hoops 3-on-3 character art, but that is actually very much like my usual style. The background was quick and lazy, but I added random bones as props (one actually being used to reposition the Koopa's penis), which should evoke the sense of some dismal lair the Dry Bones has taken the Koopa to (wherein he strips the Koopa nude and has his way with him). November 27, 2009; 05:26 - Reply temp_anon: Well, I guess I'm way too ecstatic about finally getting some great Dry Bones porn that I didn't have to make myself to really get this dismal feel you had in mind. Mmm, so delicious I can't give any criticism without a huge bias to it. =9 November 27, 2009; 12:24 - Reply Ket-Ralus: You make Dry Bones porn? Consider myself intrigued. =} But thanks for the compliment. I guess you can owe it to my friends for continuously requesting me to draw Dry Bones. My personal interest fixates more on the <em>living</em> Koopas. November 28, 2009; 08:32 - Reply temp_anon: http://games.adultfanfiction.net/story.php?no=600083967 It's a short, violent bit of fanfiction, hopefully it's your bag. I must say I do prefer the living variety just a tad more compared to Dry bones though, since they usually have this nice little belly to them. November 28, 2009; 12:29 - Reply Ket-Ralus: Definitely too violent and disturbing for me to be aroused. (Also there wasn't a whole lot of sex.) But, wow, I have to say it's incredibly vivid and emotionally provoking for such a short story. I personally felt a bit sad as I read towards the conclusion. However, the last sentence doesn't really make sense to me; it could have been fleshed out more or better built up to earlier in the story. Regardless, this is a good fic that brings some realism to a somewhat overlooked "cartoon"-ism, if that made any sense to you. Anyway, I think you've got some talent at writing and I hope you keep at it. Straying off topic, but as you should know, I liked your stories "Arctic" and "Summer Dreams". I'm gonna read a bit more of your stuff too. =} November 29, 2009; 10:37 - Reply temp_anon: Mmm, I can always count on you to give me something in-depth to consider. Originally that ending was in place for a potential, dreary sequel where the Dry Bones keeps his lover even down in an underwater Koopa outpost, drowning the living koopa troopa and other resulting gruesome imagery. However, it just fell through without any drive to create it. And yes, I do like taking "cartoon-y" sort of concepts like the idea that a Dry Bones is just magically created from a Koopa Troopa skeleton and using a realistic sort of approach to just how it happens. I like that sort of dichotomy between cutesy characters and overly violent or sexual content. The very same idea is at work here too, if you don't mind me making the connection, since the idea that a dead Koopa Troopa would have enough sexual desire and criminal intent left in him to capture and then rapes him is also particuarly unsettling. Yet you present it slanted with a healthy dose of cute style that helps to dampen this impact, making it that much more pleasing to see and far less awkward to masturbate to. November 29, 2009; 20:46 - Reply Ket-Ralus: You're exactly right. I don't need to explain it any further than that. On a related note, as for my personal outlook on violent imagery -- or more generally any "negative" emotion -- there's a point where it can get so intense that I become shocked or saddened, and feelings such as sexual arousal go out the window. Of course, I always commend stories that can make me feel these kind of depressing emotions, regardless of what it does to my penis. I suppose I'm just kind of like Iceman in your "Arctic" story; I need to have my mind filled with pleasant thoughts in order to get my gratification. This erotic indulgence may lack in realism, but it's all fantasy anyway. December 1, 2009; 08:11 - Reply temp_anon: Ha, you and Iceman, that's a nice comparison. Anyway yeah, I really don't get off on gore, despite what the fic may lead you to believe. No, my bag is more in depression and general sadness, which it has in spades after the fact and all. Cute, adorable sorts of situations are a close second though. December 1, 2009; 08:39 - Reply Ket-Ralus: Well, Iceman minus the Sergeant to be more specific, hehehe. No split personality here. And what you enjoy sounds perfectly fine to me. Can't have rainbows and sunshine all the time, right? =} I personally like exploring a range of emotions myself, and it's something I'd like to try to incorporate more of in future works. December 1, 2009; 08:55 - Reply temp_anon: Oh? Exploring a range of emotions? Like a little comic or series of images maybe? December 1, 2009; 09:25 - Reply Ket-Ralus: That sounds like a good idea to try at some point. But I was just thinking about using a wider variety of emotions and expressions in my art in general. I tend to focus too much on the character models and forget about their personalities. It's an ongoing learning process.

December 3, 2009; 20:35 - Reply Joseph8276: no prob sweetie (8} I don't think the little koopa troopa enjoys the sex.. I read the story that is on adult fanfiction. It's a sad story but sexy and O.O violent.. December 3, 2009; 22:45 - Reply Joseph8276: I cried when it was the end of that story.. That Poor Koopa Troopa.. got thrown in the ocean and ripped open too.. and the red koopa troopa sobbed.. soo.. sad.. December 31, 2009; 10:24 - Reply Ket-Ralus: Your second comment here got marked as spam and was invisible. Whoops. I've corrected that. Yeah, the Koopa in my picture is being raped and not enjoying it. I'm not big on rape but I'm big on variety and wanted to depict something different. I still get to see Koopa cock so it's a win for me. =P January 4, 2010; 05:32 - Reply Joseph8276: rawr <3 March 21, 2010; 01:07 - Reply Joseph8276: I wonder if temp_anon has an email.

If you want to get in touch with him directly, I will ask him in private if he wishes to get in touch with you. December 24, 2010; 00:30 - Reply Ket-Ralus: Thanks. =} Even though you only see the back/side of his head, a little sweat drop and a few "shaky" lines go a long way. December 26, 2010; 14:17 - Reply temp_anon: Sure yeah, I'd be willing to at least listen to what he's got to say. None too thrilled about leaving my e-mail here, so I send it off via Ket if that's alright. December 26, 2010; 18:30 - Reply Ket-Ralus: Yeah temp, I'll give your info to Joseph privately.
