A short comic I did for my patreon; Ranma, transformed into a cute lamia, gets pestered by an adventurer.

@lehlatte I'd like to give pillowfort a shot! it seems like the safest option for variety at least.

@lehlatte ooof, definitely sounds rough around the edges. and yeah the thing that really helped with og tumblr was how everyone encouraged each other to use proper tags for things. That's gotta be built up again no matter what site the mass may migrate to.

@lehlatte FurAffinity isn't that bad, except that it's VERY high traffic and almost exclusively for furry art - moreso in the sense that it was made for furry art and so that's what most people expect to see - but as far as NSFW goes, it's free real estate.
I haven't checked out NewTumbl, but I hope it's run by people who ACTUALLY know how to program and not anything malicious. Might check it out if I hear good things.

@lehlatte Oh it sucked, both as a pro-NSFW Artist and Anti-Censorship supporter. Like even CLASSIC ART would get flagged and taken down. Not to mention the bots failed to do anything against the REAL bad stuff that was going on in the dark corners of tumblr.
That's part of the reason that I'll never do a full return to tumblr. Still searching for a new user-friendly place to upload my art to, though.

@lehlatte To that specification, I have no clue. I have been seeing a steady increase in free nips, if just barely, though the rule is still technically in place.

Even if they DID rescind that rule in particular, though, the damage has already been done, and it's yet another instance of tumblr foolery that they shall forever be mocked for.

@lehlatte As far as I'm aware, Tumblr is still anti-nsfw, so long as it's explicitly nude or pornographic visually. You gotta be sneaky about it, as they don't flag written works or generously censored/cropped work and some stuff can slip under the radar..

Small update; Still working on Alien Chaser fic, getting encouragement and tips from an actual writer friend. Also messing around with Clip Studio to get a better feel for tools I hardly use. Think I might go with a combination cell and soft shading with the coloring style for the illustrations, or just soft shading? Also need to find some nighttime/abnormal lighting color pallets to reference...

The biggest news since I last logged in is that I've launched my sexy romcom FAMILIAR. You can read it for free over at familiar.soushiyo.com

Personal mention 

I won't go into details, but basically due to some really fucked up and petty shit that a close and dear friend went through recently, I've been majorly turned off to making smutty fanart, so it's highly unlikely there will be any more of that in the future. I'll instead be focused on making original content, which kind of sucks because I'll need to make a new roster of smut OCs... But the reader stories will also be a thing. Especially once I get writers to collaborate with.

Which design should be used in the Alien Chaser fic?

Poll time again! Time to pick a design for the reader character in the upcoming Alien Chaser fic! Though this time the choices are mainly hair centric :thinkhappy:

Color pallets will be picked next, then alien design!

(Poll will appear in thread)
