For my followers who appreciate Hindu mythology: Would you consider it a religious offense if I drew Ramayana tickle fetish art?
Happy Earth Day! Also I FINALLY HAVE KUKULKAN'S VOICE PACK IN SMITE EEEEE
Ne Zha: The Cutest Lotus Prince by Shadow-Aspect
Ne Zha: The Cutest Lotus Prince
Since I'm in a bit of a SMITE mood lately, might as well leave this here ;)

My original fiction series features a lot of mythological figures as characters, and honestly I think SMITE is influencing how it's shaping up a lot more than I thought lol. I honestly owe it to that game for inspiring a character of mine whom I've taken quite a liking to and yet haven't drawn even one picture for: Li Nezha, a.k.a. Ne Zha, Nezha, the Third Lotus Prince, Mr. Hot Wheels, etc.

Like SMITE's Ne Zha, this cutie here is based on the mythological figure of the same name, though my handling of the character and Hi-Rez's take are a tad different. Having played as Ne Zha and had way too much fun with his ultimate, I'm happy to see that they adapted his original tale and accompanying artifacts quite well in his lore, but I've gotta be honest here... I'm not actually that fond of his latest model. Only partly because it's got shoes, mind you ;P

To wit, compare this: vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/s…
With this: hydra-media.cursecdn.com/smite…

Not quite as adorable and a little too girly, sorry to say ^^; It's a really nice model, though, I'll give it that, and his voice is super-cute to top it off. I'm kinda holding out for Hi-Rez to offer the old model as an alternate skin in the future (and to give him more skins in general, really), and I'm probably not the only one to think that lol. In the meantime, I've decided to vent a little by finally drawing my own take on the lil' guy, with some additional preliminary concepts about how I feel his "gameplay" will be handled. Yes, he's heavily inspired by the old SMITE Ne Zha model. That's how salty I am that it's been cut. :XD:

While SMITE's Ne Zha is a melee assassin (And he'd be quite good at it, too, if only his Armillary Sash were a dash rather than a sort of reverse grab!), mine is a ranged fighter whose battle style predominantly revolves around going "PEW PEW PEW". The Wiki article states that he spits rainbows in some stories and that some of his art shows him with three heads and six arms, so I decided that it would be nice to take a cue from those aspects. Ne Zha has three stages of progression as he fights: the basic stage with four arms, a second stage with six arms, and a final stage with three heads. I'm debating whether to give the playable fighters in the "game" of my fiction project melee basic attacks like in Smash Bros. or either melee or projectile like in MOBA games, but I do know that Ne Zha would attack with his Universe Ring in melee and as a defense buffer, his Flame-Tipped Spear (which seriously needs a redesign, IMO) and frickin' laser beams would be used for ranged combat, and the Wind-Fire Wheels and Armillary Sash would be for a vertical air-dash attack and an extra-long tether-grab-dash, respectively. This kid's biggest assets are his mobility and ranged prowess, which actually isn't a mile off from how Hunters operate in SMITE. Come to think of it, SMITE's Ne Zha would actually be pretty good as a Hunter with a few changes to his kit - just make his autoattack a spear-throw like Anhur and change his Armillary Sash to a dash that can grab-stun, and you should be good to go. (And now I'm thinking that it would make more sense for my Ne Zha to throw Flaming Spears as his basic ranged attack, since that kinda works better with his theme and depiction. Thanks, Anhur!)

And yes, my Ne Zha is ridiculously ticklish, especially on his big soft cute feet. And he's barefoot all the time, because he is in a lot of artwork and I like me some barefoot cuties anyway. He's practically asking for a tickle like, all the time - and as for how he doesn't get a hotfoot even though he's floating over a pair of flaming buzzsaws all the time, per the elemental clan effectiveness I have in mind for my "game", fire tickles him rather than burning because yes, he's totally fireproof. ;)

I have to thank BoneBoneKing for introducing me to both this character and SMITE in general! I personally promised him that I'd have my own version of Ne Zha posted publicly soon enough and I hope this doesn't disappoint. I'm still sorting the details out before I finalize his design but for now I hope this enough cute ticklish girly-boy for you to handle! :meow:

Loki's Imprisonment by Shadow-Aspect
Loki's Imprisonment
"No more dirty tricks for you, rapscallion!"

In Norse mythology, the trickster god, Loki, was punished for his assassination of Balder, the god of light, by being sealed in a cave deep within the earth. Tied to a rock by the entrails of his own son, to this day he is besieged by a serpent, hung over his head by Skadi, which drips venom onto his face. His wife normally catches the poison in a bowl, but when she has to empty it, the venom gets in his eyes, and his throes of pain are, supposedly, the reason for earthquakes.

Being both a mythology buff and a tickle fetishist, I decided to spin my own silly little twist on this tale, and have the serpent torment the other end of Loki's body. ;P And while I'd gladly use the Marvel version of Loki, who's sexy enough in his own right, I figured I'd go a little off the beaten track and use a more underrated depiction: the Loki who backstabs people for shits and giggles in the amazing MOBA, SMITE. :dummy:

hydra-media.cursecdn.com/smite…

As you may have noticed from some of my recent journals, I've become an avid fan of this game, and just as well. It's basically a mega-crossover crackfic of seven different mythologies and the various gods and goddesses and even some of the more prominent monsters get to beat the crap out of each other a la League of Legends. It's ridiculous and infuriating and fantastic as heck, and I'd totally recommend giving it a try - especially because the actual game is free to download! :w00t: In-game purchases are a pain, though.

From what I've experienced of gameplay involving Loki, he's both really fun to play as and stupidly annoying to fight against, with a combination of cloaking and an ultimate that can one-shot you if you aren't careful. While he isn't the most broken god I've faced as of now (that honor goes to Thanatos, at least in my opinion), he could very well be in the top five, though the main reason he isn't right on top is because I myself don't play assassins very well. That hasn't stopped me enjoying his personality and voicelines, though, and gods, that giggly laugh of his. :giggle:

The pose and bondage for this pic, particularly the straitjacket, is based directly off of Kenny's straitjacket predicament over at MyFriendsFeet; I thought it would be appropriate, though it does beg the question of how the Aesir got such a restraint item far before the 18th century. And just for the funsies, the serpent in this version is none other than Kukulkan, the Mayan equivalent of Quetzalcoatl, in his Sir Pentsworth IV, Esq. skin - which also happens to be my all-time favorite god and skin to play as in the game! :D

I've got quite a lot of other gods on my to-tickle list, and way too little time to draw nowadays! Gaaah! DX Anyway, hope you like it, y'all! ;)

Just giving this Picarto thingy a try. Hop on over to see me art! :D

EDIT: Apparently, I should've asked if people wanted to drop in first! Sorry, guys!

I'll try again tomorrow, but for now, let me ask y'all right now... Do you really want to see me mess around with Photoshop for an hour or two? :D
