Okay so this is the first time I’ve put any art up on tumblr - and probably the last, since I never really post anything - but I had to draw some fanart for the lovely people who’ve created Real Men Wear Tights! It’s only half of him because legs are hard, but at least i got the rest of him out? xD
((ps: sorry it’s sucky, my scanner broke. :c ))

This is really lovely! I am very impressed with your shading, even more so considering you used traditional media. I also really like that expression on his face combined with his wind manipulation; he looks like he’s about to eff someone up. Thank you so much for the fanart!

"I have 2 questions. For people in their world, is shipping more common among trolls due to influence from Quadrants, or is fairly even due to the Troll influence on humans? Secondly question, do the use of terms like Boys Love, Shoujo-Ai, Yaoi, Yuri, and so forth exist like in our world, or not due to the fact that sexual orientation was never an issue? I could understand if they do for Genre sake, but I was just curious as to how you guys would handle it in the world."

Asked by mysticvriska

By shipping, do you mean like what Nepeta does? Because that most definitely exists. As long as there are celebrities/fictional works, there will be people with fantasies, regardless of species. It’s the same deal with Karkat reading romance novels; what are romance novels if not shipping fictional characters? It’s not so regular to ship one’s close acquaintances together like Nepeta does, though.

And yes, terms like that still exist for classification purposes. Just because sexual orientation has never really been that big of a deal in the modern age doesn’t mean that individuals don’t have individual tastes. So if someone wants to see two dicks rubbing together, having specific terms relating to sex-specific pairings is extremely useful.

"Alright, you might as well tell everyone the truth. Dad Egbert is hemogolin."

Asked by kumaokea

I thought it was pretty obvious that Sebastian is a cursed troll trapped inside a goldfish during the day and magic-girl transforms into Hemogoblin every night.

realmenweartights Sorry if the pics are a bit blurry I need a new camera. Here is more fan art. Tiny Karkat has scraped kneed and Hemo is tellin his back story. John is wanting so badly to pull his mask down. Well its almost midnight. I need sleep.

Aww, Sollie, this is great! I really loved writing that scene since it was so emotional, and you illustrated it so cutely. The emotions here are really fantastic, and I love how John is reaching for that mask. We wished he’d given into those impulses, too.

Woooow! I really love this! The whispers of John and Karkat’s relationship is super well done, and I just really love the effort you put into it. Excellent job on the colors, as it does a great job pulling the eye. And you made the boys so cute! Thank you so much for the awesome fanart!

"Someone cleared their throat loudly, breaking John’s attention. He looked up to see Hemogoblin grinning over his shoulder at him, swaying his hips a little from side to side, so—okay, he needed to stop looking at the other hero’s butt, regardless of how appealing it might have been. Down boy. It was not cool to just stare at the assets of your potential partner in justice on the second meeting. In his weak mental defense of his blatant ogling, he was positive that he wasn’t the only one who had been looking. The furious typing from one corner of the room had paused for an extended moment before slowly picking back up, and it seemed that someone was cursing after having over-poured their cream until their coffee had overflowed.
“Do you see something you want?” Hemogoblin asked, his voice almost a purr, and John cursed himself mentally. He was completely out of his depth trying to stand up to a flirtatious personality like this. He had never really encountered it before, so the words weren’t rolling off of him as easily as he would have liked. John could feel his face heat up before the troll chuckled, pointing up at the chalkboard behind the counter. “To order.””
Love this one. SO MUCH. Superhero geek out and Homestuck an also holy shit.

Haha, really great job illustrating a really fun scene! I distinctly remember us trying to make that scene as over the top as possible, because come on, it’s two superheroes on a coffee date. And Hemogoblin is laying it on so thick, like holy shit, you are a total dork, Hemo. Thank you so much for the lovely art!

I did this when i should have been doing request.

imsorry

I also kept the back ground separate because  I just like how I made it.

We will totally accept you neglecting your requests to do RMWT art. I really love these split images showing the hero side versus the civilian side. The way you coloured the horns is really nice! Thanks so much for the art!

Heir and Hemogoblin from one of my favourite Homestuck Aus. It’s called Real Men Wear Tights and I highly recommend it! 

PFF. I was like “Oh, Heir! He looks so happy and peaceful!” then scrolled down and saw Hemo clinging to his feet in alarm. Haha! Heir, you are scaring your partner with reckless flying. Really neat perspective! Thank you for the art!

Rmwt fan art with the Wind and Hier!
realmenweartights

this is the cover for my fansong that I did and posted

Aww, poor little John. I’m glad the wind is there to try and comfort him. Windy Mom looks lovely with her pretty dress and wispy hair~! On a side note, I like how our little Homestuck sub-fandom has personified the wind into its own character. As always, thank you for the art!
