I'm sure he'll be wearing a tattered loincloth of some sort, JL (at least I hope he is...) ;)
How DID he grow so big? Is it some mysterious power like it would be in a credible comic, or is it something dumb? In other news, the VDSD (Valantine's Day Sex Drive*) is coming up-so I need to do a pinup of one of the characters-anybody got any ideas or requests?

*An event where various web comic artists draw NSFW pinups of their characters and link to one anothers comics.

There's a bit more nudity at the moment but there won't always be this much. BTB has always been pretty raunchy though-One of the first pages ever featured Kazu's boobs growing big and causing her top to fly off.

I guess a part of it is the more vocal readers have encouraged more nudity and I enjoy drawing it-so there's not a lot of resistance to that :)

Drawing sexy stuff makes the comic more fun to draw-which is handy since I spend 90% of my 'free' time on it ;)

I think drawing sexy stuff is the natural state of any artist-most artists have money men around to stop them though (harder to sell toys and pencil cases if you can't market your animation or comic to the kids)-So they are gently steered towards more family friendly subject material. I think we as a society are more used to such fare (particularly when it comes to illustrated material) and so are not as accepting of nudity and erotica in our art-despite these aspects of the human condition forming the very bedrock of the artistsic tradition in almost any culture (particularly in the western culture which is based around the classical tradition of ancient Greece and Rome and the restoration of these traditions in the Renaissance).

Renaissance fantasy art tended to be drawn from Greek mythology and was invariably used as a good excuse to draw a lot of nudity and raunchy goings on. I try to emulate that with what I do. Really, to avoid nudity just for the chance to make more money on merch is an insult to the fine institution of the creative arts.

I know that not all art and cartoons should include adult material but I also feel that if the story in question is aimed at an adult audience then it should be able to include such content without having to justify itself. Erotica should be just as valid a part of entertainment as drama or comedy or tragedy. Hopefully one day it will be :)
Hey, Loopy! :D Yup-That's right XD
Getting Wednesday's page done on time was tough but I managed this one without too much trouble. Maybe I'm getting back into the swing of things again after the holidays :) Yeshka and Arjuna should really make some leaf bikinis or something-How can their clothes be torn off in a highly unlikely series of saucy events if they go around naked all the time?! It's just not right!

Yes-That was a reference ;)
It seems that Alice's legendary tier booty is acting like a debuff to the holy legue! How will they stand against such awesome power? Could this be the key to their defeat?! Probably. This is a rather silly comic after all.

New page! The power of 'defeat by modesty' is beginning to take a tole on the cult...

Next page should be Wednesday :) Current vote pic will be a stage by stage image as I was recently asked to provide one by a friend that's getting into drawing. Stage one is the very basic rough sketch to establish basic form.

I think I found it through google-so anybody else should be able to :) 'Vow of nudity's a new one on me :)
Hmm-That could produce some interesting results :)
That's true-It may all be too much for poor (lucky) Rath ;)

Gotta make time for the family this time of year-That's why I decided to go once per week this month (which was lucky since I've had a load of computer problems as well-I would have been in serious trouble otherwise) :)
New page! Next update is Saturday again but I plan on doing two pages per week for a couple of weeks after that, so there should be about 6 pages in January :) I hope you all had a nice holiday period and got everything you asked for. Happy new year! :D

If it was the kidney I suppose he'd be dead (that's how Jack Tanner always kills Nazi soldiers when he's in stealth mode...)-The again, if he still had HP he'd be fine (as has been established) so I suppose it could be either ;)

This guy can't last too much longer-he's really only mid-stage boss material :)
If you can't be good, be lucky ;)
Merry Christmas, all! XD
First page that was fully drawn and coloured on the tablet-I think it came out okay :) I'm getting quicker, though I haven't managed to get enough done due to seasonal stuff. Christmas is a great time but it makes getting work done a challenge ;)

Ah well-I've given up trying to understand computers-I find tenacity wins out over logic when dealing with that surly and illogical ilk :)
I can only see one comment , JL-unless you count the one where you're wondering about why there are two (which would make it two)-maybe it's fixed itself :)).

You can skip the filler if you like :) There's a dropdown menu of pages above. This batch of filler was posted about five years ago so there are plenty of non-filler pages for you-just skip it :)
Zeen didn't want to be left out :D
