Peanut Butler, Angela, Sand Witch by JohnSu Peanut Butler, Angela, Sand Witch by JohnSu
This unlikely trio of young ladies are on a quest to create a culinary masterpiece to bear their names for the generations to come. So far, nothing they've tried has appeared to jell well with their clients. In hopes of finding butter luck elsewhere, they travel far and wide in search of exotic ingredients and sampling local delicacies. Who knows where their future lies, andwich dish will be their ultimate break through? Only time (and I) can tell.

Individual bios!

Samantha, Sand Witch of Flour Desert
Sammy was raised by her grandmother in the bleached wheat dunes. When she came of age, she reluctantly left her grandmother at home (who then wrangled a pig into caring for her in her granddaughter's absence) on a journey to master the dark culinary arts of food alchemy. Though she doesn't like to talk, she also doesn't like to be alone. And so she met a peanut plant.

Hinatsu, Peanut Butler
Sammy thought the peanut plant amusingly human-like in form, and then had the impulse of completing the likeness by enchanting it into person-hood. The new abomination was named "Hinatsu" and offered the job of Butler (which, though traditionally a male occupation, was justified by Hina having more nuts than any man). Hina is a diligent servant and a stickler for details. She is also a big fan of Mr. Peanut, and hopes to meet him in person one day. She also hopes to make a manga about cats one day, too, but she is bad at drawing because she is still just peanuts.

Angela, Cherry Jelly
Angie was the third to join the party. They met at the edge of the desert, where the presence of an extraneous s-shaped creek has transformed it into a dessert. A wild jelly had squirted out of a donut to attack Hina, and Sammy tried to save her by blasting it off of her. However, she hit "cancel" instead of "apply" when trying to switch spells, and so hit the jelly with the same gijinka enchantment that had produced Hina. Whoops. Looks like you've made a new friend! She is very huggy and likes to pick up things and put them in her mouth. There is also the possibility that she has an incomplete digestive system, but I do not like to think about the implications of that.

Peanut Butler / Angie Time by JohnSu


Production Notes:

Originally this was just going to be "Peanut Butler and Jerry," but then when I tried to make a jelly boy, it was too cute, so now it's Angie. Peanut Butler could have been a man, but my I-Want-To-Draw-Cute-Girls sickness was too strong by then. Sorry, ladies - no classily dressed men for you...yet
In the end, I think Angie and Sam were my favorites to draw; sorry Hina. 

I drew this as a vector/line-less exercise because I've found that it's much faster to do things this way. Still not quite as detailed as work with line art, but I think there's still a lot of room for this technique to grow. I'll get there one of these days!

You do have the mostly wonderfully off the wall ideas for characters.

Angela is very huggy? I suppose she hugs with her hair, because she doesn't seem to have any arms. (Oy.)

So it's a little like Fighting Foodons, but with the limp knockoff Pokemon gimmick replaced by actual plot, character depth, and cute character design.

It's a little presumptuous for me to claim "actual plot" and "character depth," but I'll gladly accept "cute character design"!

Well, "actual" might be ambitious, but at least "more" plot is present here.
Ever flesh out any of your drawing ideas behind the scenes or are they kidn of one and done?

One and done, sadly. There have been times where I've toyed with the idea of a visual novel, but to date I have nothing to show for it.

Well, I can't pretend I'm good at keeping on things. I should be writing a movie script right now.
Maybe not a full VN, but little comics like your AN recountings would be fun to do?

I'm sorry John but against my better judgement I have to ask: What the heck were you smoking when you came up with these characters???????? ^^;  Or rather what did you eat???????   The puns......THE PUNS!!!!!!!!!! Nuu I guess this means Hinatsu is not friendly to those with peanut allergies then! :D  Another brilliant yet insane picture John...I don't know which it is but I must fave it nonetheless!:dummy:

I don't remember what I was eating. Maybe graham crackers?

Hinatsu loooooves people with peanut allergies! She is so curious about them, like how they get so puffy and pink and difficult breathing.

So then Hinatsu is into allergies.......^^;

You could call it "Peanut Butler Angelie" if you're willing to alter the name a bit.
