As we do nowadays, it's time to put some art forward and ask the question of What Would It Look Like?

I know Numbuh 3 had her time in the show, but later episodes ended up showing more of certain characters, most notably Numbuh 1. So I requested another pic of her for a later project of mine. Incidentally, this is the first time I asked for a pic from someone of a KND character! Good to feature lesser-known stuff.

Ah, the wondrous joys of not censoring young girls on the basis of them being young girls. It's time once again I remind you that Yes, It Can Be Done!

Today's exhibit comes from Codename: Kids Next Door, a show that I haven't gotten a chance to do art of, but probably really should. Anyway, this particular example comes from "Operation: A.R.C.T.I.C. (Am Really Cold That Is Certain)", where Numbuh 1 orders their command ship to fire something that sounds like a "new torpedo", but when it hits is really a "Nude Torpedo", and unfortunately, it ends up right at them!

The end result is two boys and two girls, all nude with their arms being the only things to hide them. This scene is fantastic, the boys and girls having equal exposure, and the one that shows more doing so because he's big and large. It's a gag that lasts about five seconds long based on wordplay, and there's an added layer to it of it being in the arctic as well, so there's also the cold to worry about. All in all, a fantastic scene with many layers to it.

Although, in a show as driven by continuity as this one, makes you wonder why it never came back...

How Do We Do It? #6

After seeing so many ways that it can be done, now it's time to ask the question of How Do We Do It?

For this look, we're taking a peek at Codename: Kids Next Door, and for this one we have a special guest commentator! My boss, Leonardo McDowell aka Darkton has been writing fanfics for the show for years, to the point where he made a dedicated timeline for the show. If anyone knows KND, it's him. Here's what he said:

"First of all, you're crazy, Arc, for getting me to do this. And not just do this, but do it TWICE! Why didn't you keep a log of what I said before? Ah, still, I'll see what I can do to remind you, because I'm such a nice guy.

Kids Next Door is a series that takes typical childhood concepts and dials them up to eleven to turn them into epic adventures. Eating a Brussels sprout POISONS OUR HERO!! Brushing your teeth IS MUTILATING YOUR MOUTH!! Stuff like that. The two big examples of nudity, BUTT and DUCKY, involved these concepts. He lost his swimsuit at the beach, NOW THE ENEMY HAS BLACKMAIL TO GET HIM TO STOP FIGHTING!! He doesn't want to take a bath AND GETS SUCKED ONTO A SHIP OF LOST SOULS!! Any new story should play off those elements. I bet you could write a rockin' fic about a horrific game of Doctor WHERE THE DOCTOR IS A MAD SCIENTIST!! Still wonder if that'd be better from a girl to a boy, though; Doctor is all based around the differences between the two, and I don't think you'd want it to look like sexual assault (I don't).

There's also those brief, quick gags that cartoons love to use. For example, the Nude Torpedo in ARCTIC that you seem to like (a lot) or Tommy mistaking what a Birthday Suit means to the KND. Stuff like that really needs no explanation, just use it wisely.

One more thing; KND is a show based around the idea of a central continuity, with consequences from one episode taking place in another. This was introduced when the age-changing cigar was brought back for the Season 1 finale, and it's been used all over the place, like with the Boyfriend Helmet from Season 1 being used back in Season 4, or Tommy putting Father's DNA into the Code Module in Season 3 coming back to haunt him in Season 5. Perhaps you could find a practical use for the Nude Torpedo, like destroying a kind of armor of some kind, like an enemy's strong one, or a cursed one hurting a friend.

Anyway, I'll leave you back to whatever you're doing. And lay off the nanos, they ate buildings and objects more than clothes (never)."

That's all he wrote! If you're looking for advice, feel free to ask him for more. His name's Darkton93 on DeviantArt, where he spends most of his time. Tell him Arc sent you!

Sorry for not posting on time as often. I've been very sick these last few days. Often times, late at night, the only thing I wanna do is get some shut-eye and maybe sleep off the illness. Still, this blog is a daily thing... at least I don't have to do two pics a day anymore.

This one is just plain funny! It's a good use of shy embarrassment in a classic scenario. I love the use of the Rainbow Monkey as a cover, and the fact that the people involved are secret lovers who have crushes on each other. Well, while we're here, might as well make it official! Or do you want to play the waiting game some more, Wally? You know she's had enough of it.
