So would you? Or would you not?

I guess it would depend on how strictly you define "naughty". Pornographic depictions of my characters are not allowed, even as custom commissions. I do intend at some point to spoof the more sleazy aspects of mainstream comic books and will probably feature some lightweight cheesecake in the service of satire. For that matter, I posted an Archie-style "pin-up" of Kung Fu Meghan just this week...but she's definitely fully clothed. I don't really consider that to be particularly scandalous but others might disagree. Of course I also reserve the absolute right to do whatever I'm in the mood for. I'll be curious to see if anyone else has thoughts on the subject.

Me too. But I'll be very surprised if I'm ever in the mood for "naughty pictures". I'm not into them when other people do them, so why would I ever want to do them myself?

Yeah, I would say it's pretty unlikely anyone will see that kind of stuff from me but I never say never. Who knows how I'll feel in 20 years? For now though, it's off the table.

Most of my characters are all adults with perfectly normal ... and healthy sex lives, none of which is stuff they should be ashamed of! Not "naughty" at all. But as it happens, all of that is like the background worldbuilding that we writers have in our heads but don't actually write out in our stories because it's unnecessary.


Sometimes, for me, some of it gets out of the background and into the plot. "Naughty pictures", however, have nothing to do with plot, they're about titillating the viewer.

If someone would do some very naughty fanart of my characters that would fit into their personalities, I wouldn't feel insulted and i would be really curious to see it (and appreciate it if well done), but I would not put it onto my webpage if it is very NSFW.

Right now I think I only would if someone commissioned me to do it, and I wouldn't post it online.


That's great but why not online. How is anyone supposed to enjoy it? Haha.

I'm really not into that kind of stuff, so no.

My main character is also a teenager so I don't think that would be appropriate. Though I do have a lot of adults to choose from. Still no though.

Well, if it's a commission, someone IS enjoying it - and they paid to do so.

Each year, the Valentine's Day Sex Drive brings webcomic artists together to celebrate their characters in the nude. Participants post new art on their websites every February 14th, and everyone links each other, which drives a lot of pooled traffic.

The VDSD is an NSFW event, and art ranges from conservative pinups to more hardcore styles, and male characters make up almost 50% of submissions.

There are very few rules, registration opens in December/January, and it's a great way to make new webcomic friends and gain new readers.

I did not know something like that existed. Cool.

What really irritates me is the American adult cartoon industry (not necessarily porn, but non-children's entertainment, Family Guy, Simpsons, etc). This moronic trend towards minimalism and outright ugly art vexes me. American adults can't admit that they're watching cartoons because they enjoy them, so they have to pretend that they're making fun of cartoons. This results in a lot of sub-par animation intended to be mocked, instead of enjoyed. In my opinion.


I don't think I understand your objection. I enjoy Family Guy because I think it's funny. In terms of the art and animation, it doesn't look that different to me than most cartoons that are on TV.

I was thinking the decline in animation was because it's cheaper, not because they're trying to make it mockable.

It's much easier to animate Homer Simpson talking than, say, a Disney Princess or Bugs Bunny. And when it comes down to it, you're most likely to watch a cartoon for the joke. If the art is really beautiful that'll draw people in, but shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force or Archer obviously are joke-heavy, crude, and doesn't really need higher animation quality. So why even spend that money when they can just move their vectors around a little?

In contrast, any classic Disney movie and Bugs Bunny in his heyday would suffer from lower animation quality.

Naughty images of my characters?
Hmm, maybe I'll draw someone getting coal for my Christmas Special.

In a more serious answer to the question, I find it ironic that this question comes up so soon after I got about as close to it as I ever will. In this Wednesday's comic I've got a shower scene, and I'm covering things up with some censor bars. Even so, when I drew the character in the buff, even though I didn't bother with any details that would just be covered up, it still felt so very, very wrong.
My characters are starting to become like my children, and drawing them naked is just wrong, so very wrong.

Thankfully, I felt much better about the artwork once the censor bars were in place.

I suppose the best way to illustrate my point is to ask: Would people still admit that they like the Simpsons if it was drawn in a less garish style? What if it was drawn by Disney? Is being ugly inherently part of what makes the Simpsons appealing? If so, why?


I can't speak for others, but If it was still as entertaining in a different style, I would certainly still admit that I liked it. I don't think Disney animation would lend itself well to the style of humor, though. I don't know how to explain why, it just doesn't seem like it would fit.

As for Family Guy... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xlk36vgygh4

vulpeslibertas, you're kind of fighting against what fits a particular genre. Shows like The Simpsons and Family Guy are super heavy in cultural references and basically tell a lot of glorified fart jokes. The shows don't take a lot of thinking to make you laugh, and the artwork matches the content.

How many hard sci-fis out there are done in a cartoony style?
How many early-childhood programs are done with dull browns and greys?

I think that video nicely illustrates that an art improvement isn't needed for Family Guy. It looks a lot better but the jokes are all the same. And I feel like it makes the pace of the show slower so, yes, it actually does take away something by improving the artwork.

I don't think The Simpsons or Family Guy look "ugly;" that is your opinion. It's fine if you don't like the artwork or the shows. But the reason the artwork is crude is because the humor is crude, which is how a lot of the popular media is now.
