Year in Review

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 2, 2014, 8:57 AM
Wow, can't believe it's December already.  There's two things I like to do at the end of every year.  I run a poll around the middle of December asking how you think I'm doing.  It would mean a lot to me if you would take the time to vote, it helps me gauge how I'm doing.  The results were good in 2011, better in 2012, and then worse in 2013.  I hope I'll do better in the poll this year.  

The other thing I like to do is look back at the Top 10 deviations of the year.  There's a section in my gallery where you can find the Top Art in 2011, Top Art in 2012, and Top Art in 2013.  I've posted over 150 commissioned deviations so far this year, and will definitely surpass the 156 that I posted in 2013.  There's definitely going to be a lot of great art in the Top 10 for this year.  I received so much good stuff this year that some worthy commissions won't make the cut:

Amazon by elee0228 Blue Mary by elee0228 ChunLi by elee0228 Wonder Woman by elee0228 Korra by elee0228

I am re-organizing my gallery and trying to sort things better.  One thing I will continue to do is post everything in the Featured part of the gallery, so you can always find everything there.  My goal is to make it easier to find art by a particular artist or art of a certain character.  

I started the Awesome Pic of the Day feature on my page this year.  I haven't posted there as much as I would have liked.  I hope you have been enjoying it.

The Pixiv Archive is up to 24 and counting.  Pixiv changed the way it stores images on its site recently, which makes it harder to put together the stuff I feature.  I might have to stop doing these, since its taking longer and longer to do them.  That's time that i could be spending commissioning more art, so I have to think about it.

I colored 36 pages of Magic Muscle, the Fairy Tail doujinshi project led by jsiejkd with art by the awesome Pokkuti.  Amerthen00b kindly contributed some money to fund the coloring.  All the pages of the main story should be colored by early next year.  Some people have asked if I would be coloring the Juvia Side Story or the Wendy Side Story featuring art by bokuman.  The answer for now is no, but that could change if I get more time.

A lot happened in 2014 and I've got a lot more planned for 2015.  As always, keep sending me your comments.  They keep me motivated in sharing my commissions and findings.

There's an update in Ring Dream of a wrestler named Freezer Katakura which is worth checking out:

Nude November

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 24, 2014, 9:18 AM


In the month of November, I'll be posting only nude versions of the art I commission.  They will all be tagged as Mature Content.  If you hide deviations with Mature Content or don't have an account, you won't be able to see these.  I have been falling behind on posting these, so this is a convenient way for me to catch up.  I pixelated the preview pics for your safety.  You'll probably still be able to make out enough to guess the characters.  Which one are you looking forward to seeing most?

I'll go back to posting regular stuff in December, with nudes mixed in occasionally.  I've got a few good things planned for December.  I've got some commissions from ichan-desu, skyraptor, and ManiacPaint that I will be posting.  I also hope to have some by Speeh and DJOK3 done by then.  I really like how this Elsa from Balsamique turned out and thinking of commissioning him again.  Go watch him, he's an awesome artist!

Upcoming Commissions

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 6, 2014, 9:10 AM




I'm a huge fan of ichan-desu and have a bunch of commissions in the works with him.  I just love the way he draws muscles on girls, keeping them powerful and sexy at the same time.  Take a look at the previews above and you'll see what I mean.  I am going to try to commission this artist as much as I can.  I highly recommend him if you are looking for an artist.

The Supergirl one above was based off of female bodybuilder Colette Nelson and I sent it to her.  She was cool enough to post it on her website.  Here are the other works commissioned from the awesome ichan-desu:

Disclaimer, Tags, Screenshots

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 9, 2014, 5:53 AM
It seems a lot of people still think I draw the stuff in my gallery. I commission art, which means I pay other artists to draw stuff for me. I always credit the artist in each picture. Sometimes I will modify or color stuff. I thought it would be obvious with the wide range of art styles in my gallery. I guess it doesn't hurt to remind people occasionally.

deviantART announced they are transitioning keywords into tags to mixed reviews. It seems most people don't like them. I wasn't sure how it would be and wanted to try it before I judged them. There are definitely still some bugs. My new deviations don't show up in tag searches, for instance. On the whole, I like tag searches better than normal searches. One thing that bugged me was that the default search also searched on usernames, so searches for some items would favor artists with that term in their name. You could search for keywords:term to filter out names, though not many people knew that. Searching by #term seems to search only the tags, which is nice if it worked 100% of the time. Right now, both search styles still works, so it is a little confusing. I wonder if they will leave it that way?

Playing Ring Dream is still part of my daily routine. The weekly events keep things fresh. I'm always on the lookout for the muscular wrestlers in the game. Here's a few screenshots for you:

Make-Upper
Manga Muscle Girls「漫画の筋肉娘」



Make Upper (メイキャッパー) by Keisuke Itagaki (板垣恵介) originally ran in Shonen Champion in 1997. It was one of Itagaki-sensei's first works, and he went on to create the popular Grappler Baki series. He has a keen eye for muscular anatomy, though he doesn't usually draw muscular women in Baki. I was surprised to see in this short 3-volume series, there were several buff girls.



The main character specializes in a technique that makes people more beautiful. He applies it to this strong lady in the first book. There's another muscular girl in the third and last volume:



It's definitely worth checking out. Hat tip to Kinnikumusume.com for the information regarding the series.

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 7:24 AM


Happy 14th Birthday, DeviantART.  You've been a big part of my life and my most frequently visited website.  I started almost 10 years ago, creating an account to browse artwork and keep a list of favourites. Back then, I didn't comment or interact with the community much. I was the classic definition of lurker. Here are a few of my earliest faves:

Bikini Beach girl by dcwj Dixey's Bridgette by Arzeno Completely ChunLi by Artgerm 

I started dabbling in writing journals and learning the value of community. I tried to share my findings in the world of female muscle fandom, and started to gain some watchers that liked the stuff I wrote about. Then I started to commission artists for fanart of my favorite game character, Akiko Daimon. Those early days of communicating with artists were very exciting. Getting to be part of the creation process was very rewarding, and very addicting. My earliest commissions of her are still among my favourites:

Akiko Daimon by Refaal by elee0228 Muscle Akiko Daimon by Bokuman by elee0228 Akiko Daimon by Jebriodo Color by elee0228

Eventually, I started to branch out into commissioning fanart of other characters for my gallery.  I started with Chun-Li, and eventually moved onto other characters I liked in anime, manga, cartoons, and comics. I started commissioning gift art for others, too. I got to talk to and work with lots of cool artists, and had lots of great experiences. Many times, it resulted in awesome artwork:

She-Hulk by elee0228 Naruto by elee0228 Korra by elee0228

Before I knew it, I had over 500 commissions, and I don't plan on stopping. Thanks, deviantART, for making it all possible. 

Upcoming Commissions

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 27, 2014, 10:38 AM
I have a lot of new commissioned artwork that I will be posting. I try not to post too many at once so that I don't spam your Message Center. There's some really good upcoming ones that I wanted to give sneak peaks for. Remember to comment, getting them keeps me motivated to share. Keep an eye out for these:

Akai Hato ~Apiru~
Manga Muscle Girls「漫画の筋肉娘」

 photo apiru_03_164_s.jpg  photo apiru_03_208_s.jpg  photo apiru_04_043_s.jpg

I was originally planning on writing about a different manga. itslikeacartoon wrote a comment mentioning a manga that I hadn't heard about before. I managed to find it and it is my new favorite manga. It's called Akai Hato ~Apiru~ (赤い鳩 ~アピル~), which translates to "Red Dove ~Apiru~". I'm not sure what the Apiru part means. It might just be a different reading for the kanji. It is a manga by Crying Freeman artist Ryoichi Ikegami (池上遼一) and writer Kazuo Koike (小池一夫). I've mentioned Koike-sensei before in an entry about another manga called Brothers. Muscular women frequently make appearances in titles by both men, and there's a lot of them in this 6-volume series. It is a seinen title so it features some sex and nudity. It can be purchased on eBookJapan and Amazon JP.

 photo apiru_04_097_s.jpg  photo apiru_05_021_s.jpg  photo apiru_06_148_s.jpg

The series was originally published starting in 1988, so it is an older series. There are three different muscular women making appearances throughout the series, including one introduced in the second volume who becomes a traveling companion to the main character for the rest of the series. She is a lot taller than the main character, it makes for an interesting contrast. This manga is definitely worth reading. The samples images here are my favorites from the series, though there is a lot more artwork to enjoy. Thank you to itslikeacartoon for telling me about it.

New Kinsyo Art

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 18, 2014, 12:11 PM


It is another blast from the past! You probably missed it when I posted this piece in Pixiv Archive 23, so I wanted to point this one out again. Kinsyo had a ton of awesome artwork at his old site (archive.org).  It's cool to see something new from him, and signed with the Kinsyo moniker too. Here's some of my favorite pieces from his old site:

Yoshiyuki Yoshizo

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 5, 2014, 9:40 AM
There was an awesome site a few years back called Earth Color (archive.org) that had artwork by an artists going by Y.Yoshida. His stuff was great, it was one of my favorite sites to visit. I was sad when it closed down in 2008. Today, I stumbled on some familiar artwork at a profile at niconico:



The manga is called Ryokurin no Shugodan (緑陰の守護団) —The Leaf-crowned maidens & The Lord of flame—. Looks like he's publishing it under the name Yoshiyuki Yoshizo, though the art style is unmistakable.  I'm happy to see a manga features a muscular woman. It's also hosted at www.suiryokuan.sakura.ne.jp/. Here are a few nice pages I've come across:



It warms my heart to see this artist still producing stuff.

Six months ago, I hit 4,500 watchers. Earlier today, I hit 5000 watchers! Totally amazing, I find it humbling to think that you like the stuff I post. Thanks for being awesome, DeviantART. I really appreciate all the comments and faves from each of you.

It reminds me that I haven't updated the Watchers Toplist in awhile, I gotta do that soon. Too many projects, too little time. I'm still doing coloring on Magic Muscle and posted a few new color pages, hope you like them. I ran a poll recently and decided to stick with my current name. Here's my favorite recent commissions:
