In the spirit of honoring my origins on tumblr (3 times terminated U_U) I thought it’d be nice to have an ask-box similar to the one on my blog for those who are too shy to reach out publicly <3.

If it’s a commonly enough asked question, it’ll end up over on the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION section – which may be worth checking out before you ask your thing here.

Otherwise though, have at it!

Your question has been sent! It will appear on this page once I've answered it 😀

    do you know any places to find reference images for female bodyhair? i have myself, but only one reference point isn't really enough, since body hair would look different across different women. google images just absolutely stinks for this. it's very hard to find images of various different women with bodyhair all over their bodies.

    Am I getting your URL wrong or did you get terminated AGAIN..
    • rustyhearts replied:
      Sorry for the confusion! I actually just changed it. I read somewhere you can get unshadowbanned if you change it. But alas no such luck. It's an acronym of my original url. 3 letters hyphen art

    I saw that the TIFs were revealed on a stream due to what happened to your Patreon (so sorry btw) and I was wondering if any of the other Patreon exclusive characters were going to be revealed now that the page is down? This is coming from a former donator who vaguely remembers a flowery lady and her punk gf along with a tired febfem who I related to way too much lmao. Keep up the good work!

      First of all thank you so much for your generosity!! I am so grateful for you and all the other patreons and deeply miss our lil group. As for the other ladies yes! I will be releasing them early as well - but closer to the time they appear in the comic. Because the gendies will be showing up in ch11 it seemed like an apt time to show them off. If you ever leave a non-anonymous comment with a legitimate email I'd be happy to send you the bios tho 🥰🥰

    Hi! I wanted to say that I really like how you build frames in your comics, fit characters into them and how you work with color!

    Hey. This might be kind of a heavy question. I'm a long-time reader of leasebound working on my own art project. However thoughts of doubt are making my life hard, specifically I'm terrified of the idea of people sexualizing my characters (the fact that they're talking animals certainly doesn't help). It's gotten so bad that I don't know if I still want to share my art at all. Do you have fears like that? How do you cope with them? Sorry if this is worded weird, my mind is cloudly from crying. Love, F.

      Hey F, Thanks so much for reading LB! Sorry your fears are making it difficult to create your art though, that really sucks <\3 I don't know if I would call what I experienced fear re: people over sexualizing my characters, but it was something I considered as a possibility considering how many disagree with me. And it has happened. I've had people send pictures of my lesbian characters performing oral sex on men. For me it was really just another reminder that they'll try any form of harrassment to get me to go away. I know this isn't the extent of sexualizing characters. Lots of people do it not to be vindictive/intimidating but because that's how they show (however twisted) appreciation for the characters someone else made. It might be useful to ask yourself what scares you about it. Is it the idea of your characters being degraded/disrespected/completely misrepresented? Is it the idea of having to see other people's depravity reflected in characters you made? Unfortunately you can't control how other people interact with what you create. But there's definitely tools/ways to curate what you see and how you interact with them. And regardless of how others see your work, only you know what it truly means to you. I hope you're able to overcome this and keep creating. Thanks again for messaging ❤

    Hey, not to seem like I’m rushing but when do you think chapter 11 will begin? Mainly asking since Im unsure of how long chapter 10 will be and know you take breaks between chapters, if I remember correctly. (Mainly ecstatic to see the trainwreck that will be Jaden witnessing the TIF Troupe, haha)
    • rustyhearts replied:
      I'm aiming to get it started before the end of the year! This chapter has about 4 more scenes left before it concludes and I can put my full focus into ironing out chapter 11. Regrettably with ch10 I didn't finish FULLY scripting before I started working on it. It's resulted in some much needed script changes and I'm very happy with how Jaden's story has taken shape now, but yeah. I always get so worried that I'm taking too long I jump the gun sometimes And figure I'll ffigure it out later/ as I go. Gonna try real hard not to do that with chapter 11. You're in for a treat tho. I've got some really fun gags coming up for it! Glad you're excited, I am too! 🥰
