I am 100% NOT obsessed with the web comic HotBlood
Not a chance
but if i were I would think Asa gets drunk sometimes and likes to dirty talk to rook
don’t ask me about height
this sure is canon (doesn’t help that Asa’s a fuckin lightweight)
(thank you, the-young-wolf-king!!!)
If someone told me that I would be obsessed with a web comic about gay centaurs in the old west, i would not have believed them.
let’s be real: I’m not entirely sure I would have believed anyone had they told me I would one day be creating a webcomic about gay centaurs in the old west, either
So my copy of Hotblood! arrived today annnnnnd I love it! I also attempted to do a Asa cosplay. Thank you starlock for publishing such an awesome comic! And also if any of my followers haven’t read Hotblood yet you should get on that.
thank you, birdnerd29!!! YOU MAKE A TRULY INCREDIBLE AND CUTE ASA, ONE HUNDRED HIGH FIVES FOR YOU
Anonymous asked: I just wanna say (assuming Feng is Chinese, which he appears to be. At least part Chinese if not full?) it means SO much to me to have a Chinese character in a western who doesn't speak with a kinda racist broken English "accent". I can't wait to see more of him! Consider me excited and even MORE in love with this incredible comic of yours!
(Feng is indeed Chinese) I’m really glad, thank you! Messages like these make my day ;;
Feng, Juniper, Dixon, and the rest of the residents of Larkspur have small roles in the story, but they’re all interesting people I want to draw oneshots about sometime!
More info on Minghua Feng that won’t come up in the comic: he’s 35, he directly manages the mines and employees (Asa and Rook mainly deal with finances, distribution to other facilities, and bookkeeping), and he’s probably the second-sharpest person in Larkspur after Juniper. They get along splendidly.
Because I love the idea Rook and Langley, of Belle Epoque Paris, of Rook and Langley in Paris, and of Rook and Langley in white tie and tails in Paris.
Warning: À la the movie Gigi (1958), there are implications of centaur courtesans.
OKAY DID YOU KNOW THAT MMMBUTTERY WRITES MY OWN CHARACTERS BETTER THAN ME? AND ALSO THAT THE PREQUEL TO THIS FIC IS STRAIGHT UP GRADE-A PORN
all y’all who’re chomping at the bit to see Rook and Asa bone should probably head on over
FUCKING FAREWELL IM GONE FOREVER
Yaaay lookit I SUCK AT DRAWING YET AGAIN
I’m so not happy with this but I tried and I really wanted to do some Hot Blood fan art so here’s a sleepy/sick Rook curled up (I tried okay?) under a blanket…
WOLVESEN NO!!! YOU DON’T SUCK AT ALL, THIS IS SO!!! ADORABLE! you tried and succeeded, this warms my trash heart
Anonymous asked: Can I ask a personal question? How do you overcome or did you ever have to overcome self-doubt? And how did you settle on /one/ idea for a comic? I know they seem a little unrelated, but I always have more than one idea I think would be fun for a comic but then I get stopped by this overwhelming sense of 'well what if nobody ELSE likes that idea?' I guess I'm just scared and maybe a kick in the ass will help me. Thanks for reading this! I both envy and admire you a lot haha
I think that everyone suffers from self-doubt sometimes. For a variety of reasons I won’t get into here, I was a frozen mess of absolutely crippling fear for about four years, and I didn’t begin to thaw until the spring of 2012, to continue the metaphor.
Every person’s experience is different and I can’t tell anyone how to carve their own path. However, I can say that my personal fear, depression, self-loathing, and lack of direction came from an inability to move forward, and not the other way around. As soon as I began putting one foot in front of the other, my life began to improve drastically.
Which ties into the answer to your other question, which is: just pick one and run with it. Who cares what other people think? It’s your story, it should be something YOU care about more than anything. Allow yourself to be self-indulgent. You’ve worked hard to be able to even consider creating a comic, I imagine- don’t waste that effort trying to pander to any audience.
(That said, I very rarely experience fear any more, and if I do it’s a reasonably small amount that I can easily shove aside.)
(I call it Rook’s Daybreak. It should probably be Rook’s sunset or gloaming or crepuscular light or something. It reminds me of Rook’s colors and the sunset in the mountains.)
(I fired my old photography director. I think the shots are better now. Daylight helps a lot. Yarn is Dreaming in Color’s Everlasting DK chili and carolina and Hazel Knit’s Artisan Sock in fudge held double.)
HOLY FUCK??? THIS IS BEAUTIFUL WOW LOOK AT IT
mmmbuttery you never cease to amaze me ;___;
