Built like Oxen and Agile as Gazelles drawn by me

This piece of RRB/PPG fanart is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist by the name of Zofia aka AmberPone, who celebrated her birthday two days ago. So, Zofia, I hope you had a magnificent, prosperous, awesome, and beautiful birthday and I wish you abundant joy in your artistic endeavors. I also wanna dedicate this picture to all of my dearest comrades-in-arms and fellow shippers of Brickercup, Blossutch, and Boomubbles. You all know exactly who you are and I hope you all enjoy this. Ah, Townsville’s very own Team Xtreme. The superhero team where superstrong, dashing, ripped, hunky gentlemen like Brick, Butch, and Boomer have the muscles to do any heavy-duty work as well as give any thug, felon or mugger a huge beating and where gorgeous, agile, graceful, powerful ladies like Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles have the moves to pinpoint their opponents’ weaknesses and strengths as well as attack bad guys with style and elegance. Seriously, having dynamics in which raw power and strength can mesh with agility and grace is a force to be reckoned with and all of these fine ladies and gentlemen of Team Xtreme have it in spades. Think about it. Brick, Butch, and Boomer have the muscles to grapple, wrestle, and/or knock out an opponent in either a camel clutch, a suplex, a bearhug, a backbreaker, a body slam or a neck-breaker, while Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles have the moves and are just as powerful to subdue their opponents with their uppercuts, jabs, hooks, roundhouse kicks, clinches, knee kicks, flying dragon kicks, and judo flips, thus making all six of these superhumans absolutely indestructible as one impeccable team. In Brickercup’s case, one can never go wrong with Brick applying his Olympic-level athleticism by having the strength of ten lions, the speed of a cheetah, and the reflexes of a leopard and Buttercup applying her own brand of combining super strength, agility, and marathoner-like endurance to make one amazing combo. When all is said and done, Brick and Buttercup definitely meet Olympian standards with their brand of unwavering endurance and unrelenting durability. Blossutch’s case is extremely fascinating, as it is a holy matrimony made in Heaven between animalistic, raw, wild power and lethal precision. With Butch’s muscles and raw strength, he can make warriors fall down to their knees and surrender what little fight they have left in their system, thus making him the brawn. Blossom’s cognizance and strategy over her foes’ strengths and weaknesses make her the brains of this action duo. Together, every combo they make will give foes one good reason never to cross their paths. Boomubbles’ case may be a little bit more subdued than the other two power couples’, but Boomer and Bubbles are just as powerful and durable as their siblings. When one thinks about it, Boomer is not just super strong but also really fast, indubitably nimble, and has such abundant endurance to make him all the more astounding as a complete athlete. Bubbles is just as strong, agile, speedy, and tough as her dearest husband in the whole wide world to the point where they complement each other in every, single thing they do. These two can make any marathoner, any athlete in a triathlon, any sprinter and even Looney Tunes’s very own Road Runner himself extremely green with envy, all thanks to these blue-clad lovers running beyond the speed of light. Moreover, any Olympian would love to have Boomer and Bubbles as his sources of inspiration or even “spirit animals”. And there you have it. When you have really strong men pair up with really tough women, then you have matches made in Mount Olympus, baby. Especially if those gentlemen are Brick, Butch, and Boomer and if those ladies are Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles. Thank you all for tuning into this piece of fanart and I will see you all on the flipside. Brick, Butch, Boomer, Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.

The Brickercup Family drawn by me

This piece of Brickercup fanart is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist by the name of Sylina aka AmusedDoodler, who celebrated her birthday two days ago. So, Sylina, I hope you had a most blessed, prosperous, and fabulous birthday, may your life as an artist and as a person be full of abundance, and may you live with grace and beauty as an artist. I would also love to dedicate this to all of my soul sisters, soul brothers, and comrades-in-arms in terms of being hardcore Brickercup shippers. I hope you all take the time to enjoy this pic and the post in its entirety.   They say that the apple does not fall too far from the tree. Well, if you ask Townsville’s very own Hot and Spicy Couple from Team Xtreme, Brick Green and his awesome wife Buttercup Utonium-Green, you will realize that their offspring is just as rambunctious as their parents when they were young. So, we have Brick’s and Buttercup’s tykes flying around being the cheeky, mischievous cherubs they are. Donning Buttercup’s old clothing is two-year-old Brooke and donning Brick’s old clothing are eldest son Blaze who is four years old and is giving the rock on sign and middle son Brendan who is three years old and is giving the peace sign along with the dragon’s kick. Let’s get to know how these tykes came to be.   It was an early August of 2013 when Buttercup found out she was pregnant with Brick’s child. When Brick heard the news he was initially shocked, but then he decided that he and Buttercup were always meant to be together, as they ended up getting married with only one more year of college to go. When Buttercup was pregnant with her first son, she started to crave spicy foods like Tom Yum soup, Kung Pao chicken and/or shrimp, habanero peppers, ghost chili, and basically any food that nearly broke the Scoville scale. The pangs in her stomach, as well as the burning sensations she would constantly feel, gave her the drive to name her son Blaze, after finding out from the ultrasound that it was going to be a boy. Brick knew that he had a pyrokinesis heir in the making. Buttercup jokingly stated that she was probably to give birth to a dragon.   This all came to a head on June 3, 2014, when Blaze Christopher Green entered the world. When Blaze emerged from his mother’s womb, it was discovered that he had heterochromia with the left eye being fire engine red and the right eye being lime green. In spite of this, it was said that he was a jolly bundle of joy and he was going to bring love and light to his parents’ lives. Moreover, when he was brought back to Team Xtreme Headquarters with his parents, a spark of flame flickered from his mouth when he was about to blow something. This surprised both Brick and Buttercup, considering that Brick did not realize he was a pyrokinesis user until Mr. Green came to his and his brothers’ lives as their father and Buttercup mostly used friction by vigorously rubbing her hands to produce fire before Brick tapped into her natural talent for pyrokinesis. Blaze also inherited his parents’ usual powers like laser eye beams, super strength, flight, impeccable endurance in combat, and unparalleled athleticism. In turn, these traits would end up being passed down to his younger siblings to the point where all of them mastered the Ballistic Barrage at such an incredibly young age, thus astonishing and astounding Brick and Buttercup. Blaze is very much the split image of his father in terms of inheriting his first hairstyle, not counting the heterochromia and his mother’s hair color, and bearing his impulsiveness, hot-blooded temper, street smarts, book smarts, cunning nature, strong fighting spirit, the tendency to lead with an iron fist, and the constant need to exude confidence everywhere he goes. He even bears his mother’s perseverance and free-spirited thinking, thus making him an independent yet stubborn little boy who does have a lot of growing up to do, but he is getting there. He even learned how to read before he reached the age of two, thus making his speech develop at such an impeccable rate. As Blaze grew, his fire powers matured to the point where he has a fire version of the eye beams burning anything that comes in close contact and can show that he can either manipulate fire at will or use friction to create said element.   A year later on August 1, 2015, Buttercup then gave birth to another son by the name of Brent Timothy Green. It was said that he was a loud baby when he emerged, probably a lot louder than his older brother, Blaze. When Brent was still a year old, he was able to move pebbles, small stones, and building blocks just by concentrating and using his hands to move them around. Moreover, he even had a go at using pyrokinesis to ignite any pebble. Brick and Buttercup knew that aside from being a pyrokinesis user, Brent was growing to be a geomancer as well, thus combining the best of both of his parents’ unique powers and abilities. Even more shocking was the time when Brent came to his parents’ room asking for a bedtime story by going under their queen-size bed and lifting it much to their astonishment and eventual delight to see how far their son has gone with his Herculean strength. Much like his older brother, he even learned how to read, write, and speak before he reached the age of two, thus showing an impeccable development in his motor and speech skills. Personality-wise Brent is truly his mother’s son but he also bears some of his father’s traits. He is just as impulsive, prone to temper tantrums, anger-prone, and rebellious as his mother but just as cunning and large-and-in-charge as his father. Buttercup even gave Brent…

Ah Si, Ben Mio drawn by me

“Ah si, ben mio, coll’essere io tuo, tu mia consorte, avrò più L’alma intrepida, il braccio avrò più forte. Ma pure, se nella pagina de‘ miei destini è scritto ch’io resti fra le vittime, dal ferro ostil trafitto, fra quegli estremi aneliti a te il pensier verrà, verrà, e solo in ciel precederti la morte ea me parrà!” – Manrico from Giuseppe Verdi’s Il Trovatore (The Troubadour), Libretto by Salvatore Cammarano, first performance on January 19, 1853 at Rome’s Teatro Apollo, based on the play of the same name but in Spanish, El Trovador, by Antonio García Gutiérrez English Translation: “Ah, yes, my love, when we belong each to the other, my courage will be the greater, my arm will be the stronger. But if within the book of destiny it is written that I should fall tomorrow, struck down by an enemy blade, in those dying moments my thoughts to you will fly, and I will know that I but go before you into heaven!” This is my Pride Month art trade with my very dear friend, fellow DeviantArtist, and Brickercup-shipping soul sister and comrade-in-arms, the ever fabulous, ever awesome, and ever fun Paula aka BrickercupMasterX3. I once requested her to draw my Soul Calibur OTP Siegfried/Kilik. In return, she requested me to draw her OCs, Nicole the auburn-haired young lady with dark violet eyes in a blue and white prince’s outfit with the saber by her side and silver boots and Aalyiah the girl with long brown hair and green eyes, a golden necklace, a black and violet dress, and golden slippers. Plus, I even added a little something in the form of ruby rings, as in this picture Nicole and Aalyiah are engaged. Fulfilling my end of this art trade was easier said than done, as I had other obligations to fulfill and OTP and BroTP ships to draw, nudge nudge wink wink Brickercup, Blossutch, Bunnitch, and Boomubbles being my OTPs and Brickubbles being my main BroTP for life, as it was Brickubbles month. Moreover, I was figuratively banging my head, as to how I can make these two girls not only attractive in a lovey-dovey way but what setting I can place them in as well as what theme can I give to them and the overall feel if you know what I mean. Finally, I came to this wonderful idea. We have Nicole being akin to a fairy-tale prince and Aalyiah being the fairy-tale princess that she is, as they are having a romantic moment together on a cliff overlooking the sea on a nice, fair day with blue skies. Growing up on fairy-tales and still loving them to this very day as well as loving the fantasy romance yuri shoujo anime Revolutionary Girl Utena has inspired me to make something like this. As for the song choice, or more appropriately opera aria choice, I decided to pick Manrico’s Romanza “Ah Si, Ben Mio” from Verdi’s Il Trovatore, as it has a beautiful, sweeping, and at times haunting melody which makes it ideal for anything romantic. Now, what happens after this Romanza is Manrico, the titular troubadour, and Leonora, a noble lady and the object of his and the Count of Luna’s love, are about to get married until his vassal, Ruiz, alarms Manrico that his supposed mother, Azucena the gypsy woman, is about to be executed, as she is captured by his rival, the Count of Luna. This causes Manrico to break out in the cabaletta “Di Quella Pira” (Of that pyre), which is very famous for the tenor hitting the High C, even though that is interpolated but has become a tradition for many a tenor to attempt this. There is no need to worry in terms of Nicole and Aalyiah’s moment, as there will be only peace and calm between these two ladies. In order to accompany this picture, I personally think that Jussi Björling’s rendition of this particular Romanza is my cup of tea, as his voice was and will always be seamless, gorgeous, and well-focused as well as emotionally poignant. As someone who also sings, I totally look up to Herr Björling as a role model. So, without further ado, here is his rendition of Manrico’s Ah Si Ben Mio with conductor Renato Cellini along with the RCA Victor Orchestra and this was recorded back in 1952. Happy listening. Well, Paula, I hope you enjoyed this picture of Nicole and Aalyiah as much as you also enjoyed listening to the aforementioned opera aria. Take care and see you on the flipside. Nicole and Aalyiah belong to BrickercupMasterX3.

You’re The Best drawn by me

“Try to be best ‘Cause you’re only a man And a man’s gotta learn to take it   Try to believe Though the going gets rough That you gotta hang tough to make it   History repeats itself Try and you’ll succeed   Never doubt that you’re the one And you can have your dreams!   You’re the best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down You’re the Best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down You’re the Best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down   Fight ‘til the end Cause your life will depend On the strength that you have inside you   Ah you gotta be proud Starin’ out in the cloud When the odds in the game defy you   Try your best to win them all And one day, time will tell   When you’re the one that’s standing there You’ll reach the final bell!   You’re the best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down You’re the Best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down You’re the Best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down   You’re the best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down You’re the Best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down You’re the Best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down   Fight ‘til you drop Never stop Can’t give up Til you reach the top (FIGHT!) You’re the best in town (FIGHT!) Listen to that sound A little bit of all you got Can never bring you down   You’re the best! Around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down You’re the Best! Around!” – You’re the Best, Joe Esposito, Bill Conti, and Aimee Willis, June 23, 1984   This marks my final Brickubbles month submission for this year as heralded by my very good friend and fellow DeviantArtist the ever-phenomenal and ever-awesome Paula aka BrickercupMasterX3. Moreover, this Brickubbles month submission is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist by the name of Ilenia aka DynamisGD who is celebrating her birthday today. So, Ilenia, I hope you have a pleasant birthday and I hope you enjoy this piece of Brickubbles fan art. Tanti auguri a te e tutta la gioia e la felicitá per te.   I know I was supposed to have turned this in days ago, but I had other plans and let’s just say that real life got the best of me. I am really sorry for the delay I hope you could forgive me for this really, really long wait. I wanted to make this Brickubbles month go out with a bang and I think this might as well be the submission to do it.   Here we have our fabulous big brother-in-law little sister-in-law duo Brick and Bubbles, who are engaged in a sparring match and looking like they’re about to give each other their all, what with Brick being the sensei/senpai and Bubbles being the student/kohai. One cannot help but feel immersed by the dynamics these two have with Brick being like a mighty dragon and Bubbles being an elegant and graceful crane, as these animals represent them in terms of their personalities and it’s a nice mesh and clash between fire and water. Plus, one can easily imagine Brick and Bubbles to be the closest of sparring partners on a ritualistic level, where Bubbles respects Brick as if though he were her older brother from another mother and Brick can acknowledge how teachable, adaptable, and skilled Bubbles truly is as a fighter and as a person.   As to be expected, the dragon was an obvious choice for Brick, as it represents might, strength, valor, and ferocity. These are the traits he bears as well as being a skilled user of pyrokinesis. He is someone who demands respect and loves to be heard, but when he does not get it, boy, does he get pissed, so beware.   The crane was an easy choice for Bubbles, as it is very well-known for its grace and placidity. It is also a bird which usually finds itself on shallow waters. Ergo, animals and the element of water are very much those features which resemble Bubbles in terms of her affiliation with these two, as she can also speak the animal language and is flexible, graceful, and fluid like a calm lake.   When Brick and Bubbles are combined together they definitely form a team-up few duos can ever rival. With Brick’s strength, fierceness, and commanding presence and Bubbles’ agility, grace, and fluidity of movement, they can definitely give any opponent a reason to run for the hills. So, Brick, Bubbles, do you have anything to say to our celebrant?   Brick and Bubbles: Sure, we do.   Brick: We hope you have a kickass birthday, Ilenia.   Bubbles: On behalf of Team Xtreme, we wish you a lot of love and joy in the years to come.   Thanks, you guys. Well, that’s it for this submission. During the time I made this I was listening to You’re the Best Around, as I was thinking of a nice song to complement this final Brickubbles month submission. Eye of the Tiger was a bit too overused, so that was out of the question. Then came Joe Esposito’s You’re the Best, which I thought fit Brick and Bubbles as karate fighters very well. So, I hope you also enjoy listening to this song, as it was my drive to pull everything together for this final Brickubbles month submission.   You’re the Best by Joe Esposito as part of the Regular Show soundtrack.   Take care, everybody.   Brick and Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.

The Power OTPs of Townsville

This piece of RRB/PPG fanart is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist, Samuel Aken’Ova aka tmntsam, who celebrated his birthday two days ago. So, Sam, I hope you had a magnificent celebration, please continue to be as awesome of an artist that you are and I wish you a lot of love, joy, prosperity, and happiness for the days and months to come. I would also love to dedicate this to all of my fellow hardcore shippers of Brickercup, Blossutch, and Boomubbles. I hope you all enjoy this piece of work.   A guy like me can’t have enough of my most beloved OTPs of Townsville Brickercup, Blossutch, and Boomubbles. So, let’s not waste any time and find out what makes these three sets of superhuman couples so fascinating and awesome. And to help us get in the mood here’s our good friend The Narrator to tell us, dear viewers, what makes these power couples super.   Narrator: Gladly. (clears throat) The City of Townsville! Home to the courageous, powerful, and daring six-person superhero team, Team Xtreme. Team Xtreme Headquarters! The resident of our superheroes. Oh look, the gentlemen Brick, Butch, and Boomer have just finished their round of Muay Thai sparring. Even their wives, Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles, who almost look like Tekken’s Christie Monteiro, have just finished their capoeira routine. Together these three couples band together to be The Superhuman OTPs of Townsville! We begin with the first one in the form of this kick-butt, fiery action duo Brick and Buttercup.   Brick: That’s our names.   Buttercup: Don’t wear it out.   Brick and Buttercup aka Brickercup aka The Hot and Spicy Couple aka The Fire and Spice Couple   Narrator: Kicking off this power OTP roster is the couple who can kick butt and take names, not take crap from anyone, can be a bit on the rebellious side and can send a shiver down one’s spine if not cautious. This hot and spicy couple is branded by fans as Brickercup. Donning red shorts with thick black stripes and Muay Thai wrappings as well as having the fiercest red eyes and being the hunky redheaded Alpha Male that he is is none other than Brick “The Bludgeoner” Green, the 26-year-old eldest son of Mr. Green and Mrs. Bellum-Green.   Brick (raises his arms to greet the crowd in a proud manner and flexes his biceps): Yeah, that’s right! Brick the Bludgeoner is in the house! And so is my awesome wife, BC.   Narrator: Speaking of BC, donning a gorgeous red top, pants containing a warm-colored fire, green smoke, and green firewood, green gauntlets, and lime-green armbands as well as being the lime-green eyed, raven-haired warrior girl that she is is Buttercup “The Toughest Fighter” Utonium-Green, the 25-year-old middle daughter of Professor Utonium and Mrs. Keane-Utonium.   Buttercup: Brickster! Your toughest fighter is also in the house!   (Brick and Buttercup kiss each other euphorically. After that, they face the camera with fierce grins on their faces.)   Narrator: Just by knowing what one can expect from both Brick the Bludgeoner and Buttercup the Toughest Fighter, one can expect these two to give any opponent a run for his money when one dares to come face to face with these two. Their combat prowess, fiercely independent spirits, never-give-up, rough attitudes, and overall toughness make them a force to be reckoned with. Individually, they work just fine, but together any criminal or monster won’t have a prayer to say before the beating commences.   (Brick and Buttercup beat up muggers who attempt to rob an old lady, a giant monster, and a corrupt politician.)   Brick and Buttercup: And stay down, suckas!   Narrator: What did I tell you? Attitude and toughness. Moreover, their powers truly do complement each other, what with Brick being an expert pyrokinesis user and Buttercup also being pyrokinesis user as well as being a geomancer. Man, talk about fire and earth becoming one.   Brick: That’s right. And do you wanna know why you should never make us angry?!!   Buttercup: You really wanna know why you shouldn’t piss us off?!!!   (Brick’s hands ignite and fire spews from his mouth, as he lets out an earth-shattering scream.)   Brick: It’s because I can roast you alive! So, you better be prepared for me to heat things up!   (Buttercup then telekinetically lifts up a huge rock from the ground and it ignites it. She struggles at first but then she also lets out a powerful scream.)   Buttercup: And I can crush you while seeing you burn!   (Brick’s flames die down and Buttercup gently drops the rock to the ground.)   Brick: You’d have to be really stupid to face us.   Buttercup: Unless you’re really craving for a knuckle sandwich then we have it in spades.   Narrator: Well, that was igniting, to say the least. So, anyway, when this couple is not completely engaged in combat, they are engaged in steamy intimacy. Seriously, the belligerent sexual tension is just so spicy but so invigorating, as they feed off of each others’ impulses and can also be tender towards each other when they’re not pummeling their enemies.   (Brick and Buttercup are making out when the door creaks open.)   Brick: Hey, bozo, move it or lose it.   Buttercup: Before we knock you out cold.   Narrator: Well, there you have it. Team Xtreme’s Hot and Spicy Couple. Let’s move on to the next pair, shall we? And the next one is our brawn-and-brain action duo in the form of Butch and Blossom.   Butch: ‘Sup. I hope you’re ready to feel the wrath of the Baron of Berserk.   (Butch flexes his muscles.)   Blossom (chuckles): Oh, Butch. I think they are. But you need to save it for the criminals.   Butch: Oh, sorry, Bloss.   Butch and Blossom aka Blossutch aka The Beastly Brawn and The Brainy Beauty Couple aka The Watermelon Couple   Narrator: Our…

Team Xtreme Martial Artists drawn by me

This piece of Rowdyruff Boys and Powerpuff Girls, known in my headcanon as the superhero team Team Xtreme, is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist by the name of Rolando Cuevas aka ROCuevas who celebrated his birthday yesterday. So, Rolando, I hope you had a wonderful birthday and I wish you well in everything you do as an artist. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this piece of Powerpuff Girls fanart.   Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you all the members of Team Xtreme in different martial arts attire. From left to right, we have the following.   Brick- Pankration Butch- Muay Thai Boomer- Kickboxing Blossom- Shaolin Kung Fu Buttercup- Kyokushin Karate Bubbles- Capoeira   Moreover, as you can tell from the expressions in their eyes, the pairings are Brickercup (Brick x Buttercup), Blossutch (Butch x Blossom), and Boomubbles (Boomer x Bubbles). So, in turn, I dedicate this Team Xtreme martial arts pic to all of the shippers of Brickercup, Blossutch, and Boomubbles.   In my headcanon, Team Xtreme as well as their closest allies and friends Mitch “The Persecutor” Mitchelson, Bunny “The Bouncing Mountain” Utonium-Mitchelson, Harry Pitt, Julie Bean-Pitt, Mike Believe, Robin Snyder-Believe among others practice different types of martial arts including karate, judo, jeet kune do, boxing, taekwondo, Muay Thai, kickboxing, wrestling, mixed martial arts, and jujutsu both Brazilian and Japanese. So when making this picture involving the main Team Xtreme members I had to consider which martial art could complement them in terms of personality, interest, and overall plausibility. For what I got, I definitely enjoyed getting to know the different martial arts and researching about each of them to make them gel these superheroes and to some extent their fighting styles.   For Brick, I chose Pankration because this martial art is not only a precursor to mixed martial arts but also has its roots in Ancient Greek history. Since Brick is both street smart and book smart, he would have a great understanding of where Pankration came from as well as the many moves and techniques being used. Thus, he would be able to learn about the history of this Ancient Greek martial art. Moreover, Pankration is considered to be a deadly martial art where it involves combining wrestling and boxing. One can easily imagine Brick not only knowing all the moves by heart but also using it rather effectively in both sparrings and in real-life battles. So, for someone like Brick, strength, smarts, and instinct certainly make him for what he is as a fighter.   Butch is an obvious choice for Muay Thai given how warlike, animalistic, and brutal he can be both in his personality and in his fighting style. He is the type of person who fights to live and his life is usually a constant battlefield, where physical and mental strength is an absolute must in order to win. The fact that Muay Thai fighters hit banana trees with their shins in order for them to be strengthened and be rock-hard is actually a phenomenal tidbit that sparked my interest. One can highly doubt that Townsville has any banana trees. So, the Townsville version would have Butch hitting oak trees or any strong tree or any strong material with his shins. Moreover, Butch seems to be a fighter who values close-contact fights, thus applying clinches, elbow strikes, and knee strikes to his opponents. Sure, wrestling could have been a choice for Butch, but I think Muay Thai fits him to a T.   In Boomer’s case, I didn’t solely end up with boxing but also kickboxing, given how fast he is with his hands and feet. Boomer seems to be the type of fighter who combines strength and speed and does so in a way in which he can incapacitate his opponents rather effectively. One can easily imagine Boomer delivering different types of punches and kicks from hooks to jabs to uppercuts to roundhouse kicks to crane kicks. Moreover, I can easily imagine him to not just be a very strong fighter who uses muscle but also rapid speed thus making him a force to be reckoned with.   Blossom and Shaolin Kung Fu really do go hand-in-hand. On the surface, this has something to do with Blossom’s experience with the Chinese language and even the Chinese culture. So someone who is immersed in Chinese culture as Blossom would also know the two types of Kung Fu namely Shaolin and Wing Chun. Shaolin Kung Fu is definitely up Blossom’s alley because of the monk-like self-discipline, diligence, and warrior’s mindset she bears to live up to this particular style of Kung Fu. Moreover, as a fan of the episode Stuck Up, Up and Away, the way Blossom managed to attack Princess Morbucks is not just elements used in Shaolin Kung Fu but also in Wing Chun Kung Fu, given how close-contact it is. At least, that’s what I presume it to be. Let’s also not forget that scientific studies show that a Shaolin monk’s skull and bones are a lot stronger than those of normal people due to the training they do. So, that principle would definitely apply to Blossom.   I went for Kyokushin Karate for Buttercup, as she is someone who applies full-contact attacks on her opponents. Let us also not forget that Kyokushin Karate is very different from Traditional Karate, given that Kyokushin is full-contact but avoids the punching of the face something that Buttercup does to her opponents. Yes, by saying this, Buttercup should have been more fit for MMA, but my headcanon side stated that everyone from Team Xtreme as well as Mitch, Bunny, Harry, and many other of their allies and friends practice MMA. So, with Buttercup, Kyokushin Karate actually ended up being a nice fit for her. Let’s also not forget her experience with the old monk from Makes Zen to Me. I’m fully aware that the old monk practices Shaolin Kung Fu and not Kyokushin Karate, but the variety of attacks Buttercup has as…

Muscles of Steel and Will of Iron drawn by me

This Powerpuff super couples fanart is dedicated to a fine fellow DeviantArtist who is also a very great friend and supporter and always leaves wonderful comments on my works, the one and the only Dolo aka PowerpuffObsessed. So, Dolo, I wish you a most amazing, thrilling, prosperous, and blessed birthday and I also wish you abundant blessings and joy in your work as an artist. In turn, I dedicate this piece of Powerpuff couples fanart to all of the wonderful shippers of Brickercup, Blossutch, Bunnitch, and Boomubbles. Enjoy.   Quick question. What happens when you combine four studly, powerful, badass muscle dude brothers like Brick, Butch, Mitch, and Boomer with four gorgeous, tough, elegant, and sassy sisters like Buttercup, Blossom, Bunny, and Bubbles? Why you get four grand power couples who exude strength, confidence, fierceness, and bravery in everything they do as superheroes. Yes, Mitch may not be Brick’s, Butch’s, and Boomer’s brother, but I would love to think of him as their brother from another mother and their all-time closest friend and ally.   So, we have Brick, Butch, Mitch, and Boomer doing the most muscular pose and being the strong muscle hunks that they are and their darling wives Buttercup, Blossom, Bunny, and Bubbles being rather calculating and fierce showing why neither they nor their husbands should be messed with. Isn’t that right?   Buttercup, Blossom, Bunny, and Bubbles: Absolutely.   Buttercup: Besides, my Brickster here, is in great command of his buff, studly body like a true warrior king. That’s why I’m more than happy to have this guy as my hubby.   Brick: Aw…BC, you are the greatest wife a man like me could ever have.   Buttercup: Thanks, Brick.   Brick: My pleasure, babe.   Blossom: Well, my dearest Butch, is raw fortitude and animal power incarnate. He truly lives up to the mantra “beast mode engaged”.   Butch: Bloss, you are a goddess.   (Blossom kisses Butch on the cheek and he blushes euphorically.)   Bunny: My darling Mitch may be a normie, but he has enough muscle to beat up any baddie out there.   Mitch: My rock-hard muscles and I wanna thank you so much for that compliment, Bunny Rabbit.   Bunny: You’re welcome, Mitchie.   Bubbles: Last but not least is my big, strong, handsome, and sweet Boomie. I don’t just love seeing his muscles but I love touching them too. I can tell he, Brick, Butch, and Mitch work so hard to keep such godly physiques.   Boomer: Aw shucks, Bubs. You always bring sunshine every day.   There you have it. The Utonium sisters are totally lucky to have big, strong, powerful, muscular husbands like Brick, Butch, Mitch, and Boomer. So, any birthday greetings for our dear friend, PowerpuffObsessed?   Brick: Since we’re the gentlemen here, we’ll let our wives go first.   Butch: After all, ladies first is always our mantra.

The Blossutch Family drawn by me

This piece of Blossutch fanart is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist by the name of Jason Tesch aka TheSuperSaiyan10 who celebrated his birthday two days ago. So, Jason, I hope you had an amazing birthday, I wish you abundance, joy, and prosperity in your life not only as an artist but also as a person. Blessed be. I would also love to dedicate this to all of my dear fellow Blossutch shippers, so, I also hope you enjoy this. Here we have Townsville’s fabulous beastly brawn and brainy beauty couple, Butch and Blossom, being the proud parents to their offspring, three-year-old fraternal twin sons Brendan and Blake and two-year-old daughter Belle. Let’s get to know how these children came to be. By the way, Blossom’s shirt says “Boss Mama in the house” all in capital letters. Butch and Blossom were the last couple of Team Xtreme to end up being married and have children, as the first one was Boomer and Bubbles and the second one was Brick and Buttercup. One year before graduating college, Butch went out of his way to ask Blossom’s hand in marriage. Blossom was initially hesitant, but she relented as long as both of them finish college. They were then engaged, which was a blessing not only to Butch considering how much Blossom has meant so much to him but also to Blossom considering how Butch went from being a mouthy, annoying six-year-old half-pint to a roguish yet charming muscular gentleman, who is so willing to keep her safe from danger. Their relationship came to a head when one October, Blossom found out that she was pregnant with Butch’s child. In the ultrasound, it was revealed that she was going to give birth to twin boys. It was when Butch and Blossom graduated college that they were immediately married. Then on July 24, 2015, Blossom gave birth to fraternal twin sons Brendan James Green and Blake Francis Green. Brendan James Green and Blake Francis Green were rather jolly baby boys when they emerged from their mother’s womb though Brendan was a tad bit rougher than Blake. Personality-wise, Brendan is the split image of his father in terms of his first hairstyle with a cowlick and forest green eyes all down to his rambunctiousness, violent streak, wild nature and willingness to pick a fight. Blake, on the other hand, has his father’s second hairstyle but also his mother’s eyes and is the slightly tamer twin compared to Brendan, thus bearing Blossom’s smarts, self-discipline, and willingness to lead, even though he can be a bit wild and bossy at times. There were days when the fraternal twins even read through entire books and listened to classical music, courtesy of Blossom, while they were just a year old. Therefore, their speech patterns were sharpened at an impeccable rate, even though they were still babies. Aside from their prodigious enunciation of speech, Brendan and Blake were even able to demonstrate their equally prodigious powers at such an early age. Both twin boys have super strength, super speed, and laser eye beams, as they managed to effortlessly bench press a bookshelf, their crib, and even the couch much to Butch’s pleasure and delight and Blossom’s horror and shock. They even managed to galvanize a metal pipe with their laser eye beams and fly at such a fast rate, thus surprising their parents. They even inherited their parents’ individual powers. Brendan can create a force field durable enough to absorb any energy attack much like his father, while Blake has ice breath much like his mother. Because Brendan has also inherited a few of Blossom’s powers he can even shoot ice beams straight from his hand. The same thing can be said about Blake who inherited some of Butch’s powers, as he can be able to create a snowball-like force field, which is strong enough to neutralize any heat-related attack. Even at three years old, both Brendan and Blake have one special attack which has become their signature move and that is the Blizzard Punch an amalgamation of Butch’s Tornado Punch and Blossom’s cryokinesis. Bearing concern and slight fear that Brendan and Blake might end up going awry with their powers, Blossom would always see it fit to send them to Mr. Green every weekend for a visit, to which Butch more than gladly consented, as someone who is a supernatural creature like Mr. Green has enough wisdom, experience, and tact to deal with superpowered children. Blake, being his mother’s son, indubitably shows great control of his powers, while Brendan, being his father’s son as he is, has a lot of catching up to do on the control department. Sure, both fraternal twins are still very young, but according to their beloved paternal granddad, Mr. Green, he sees so much potential. Relationship-wise, Brendan and Blake do get along very well, even though their different personalities can often lead to clashes. Regardless, when all is said and done, they manage to be as close as fraternal brothers are, as in they are loyal to each other and are attentive. A year after on July 26, 2016, Blossom gave birth to a daughter who was christened as Belle Marguerite Green. Blossom’s fascination with the French language was what propelled her to name her daughter, as Belle means “beautiful” and Marguerite is the French form of Margaret. Plus, being an avid opera listener, Blossom was even inspired to give Belle the second name Marguerite after the main heroine of Gounod’s Faust and the queen, Marguerite de Valois, from Meyerbeer’s Les Huguenots. Belle Marguerite Green was said to have been a placid baby when she was delivered and given to Blossom. Her physical trait, much like her cousin Blaze, is that she has heterochromia, in which her left eye is forest green and her right eye is pink. Much like her older brothers, she displayed her impeccable articulation while she was a year old, thanks to all of the books which she has read, as…

This submission as part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Brickubbles month is dedicated to a few people I have sadly lost in my life growing up: my maternal grandma, Lydia Aznar-Alfonso, who passed away eight years ago from intestinal cancer, my chemistry teacher in third-year high school, Mr. Nicolas Apelinga, who passed away about three weeks ago, and one of my paternal uncles, Francis Duran, who as stated by my mom passed away today. I would also love to dedicate this piece of RRB/PPG fan art to a fellow filmmaker who I had the pleasure of working with, Steffen Kaminski whose father passed away. May you all rest in peace, you will all be in my prayers and may the Heavenly Father keep you all in His realm.   This is going to be the final Brickubbles Flashback, chronicling Brick’s and Bubbles’ major highlight in college. Technically, this is my second-to-the-last Brickubbles submission, as I have one more coming up. Furthermore, this flashback takes place in June 2014, where Brick, Butch, and Boomer were twenty-two years old, Blossom and Buttercup were twenty-one years old, and Bubbles was twenty years old. This was also the month where Buttercup gave birth to Blaze, hers and Brick’s first son, thus making Brick and Buttercup married while entering their fourth year of college. Moreover, since Boomer and Bubbles were the first to marry while still in college, they had their first three children, twins Bailey and Barley who were two years old and Brittany who was a year old. Butch and Blossom were engaged, as she stated to him that she would rather marry when they graduate college to which he gladly agreed. Enjoy this final flashback to the past. Brickubbles is kept as a loving platonic relationship, while the real couples in this flashback are Brickercup, Blossutch, and Boomubbles. There’s also a bit of Bunnitch here.   Birth. Childhood. Adolescence. Adulthood. Middle Age. Old Age. Death. This is the life cycle of an average human being and is basically what we all go through in life. Everything influences us to be the people that we are from our environment to our family to our friends to our teachers to society as a whole. There will be good days and there will be bad days, depending on what one makes of it. Speaking of which, picture yourself as this young will-to-be parent. The thought of it is rather intimidating considering the responsibilities of being one, but with enough moral support and unconditional love one can definitely raise one’s child to be the best he or she can be. Submitted for the approval of The Brickubbles Flashbacks, I call this story Life’s and Love’s Gift. Brick, Bubbles, please take the floor.   Brick and Bubbles: Thanks, Antoni.   Bubbles: And our many condolences to those wonderful people you mentioned.   Brick: Yeah, man, I hope you’ll be okay.   Me: I will. Let’s dedicate this show to them.   (Team Xtreme Headquarters. Blaze, Brent, and Brooke enter racing in the living room with Buttercup. Bailey and Barley are playing a card game akin to Yu-Gi-Oh. And Boomer enters playfully chasing Brittany and Birdie. They land on the huge couch where Brick and Bubbles were sitting.)   Brick: Well, hello darling, and my little scamps.   (Brick gives Buttercup a kiss and ruffles Blaze’s, Brent’s and Brooke’s hair.)   Bailey: Ha! I got Flaminius. He’s gonna roast you alive. There’s no way you can beat me.   Barley: Well, bro. I got Dasher! He’s gonna shock you down.   (Bailey and Barley realize the attack level both cards have.)   Bailey and Barley: Aww…dangit. Another tie.   (Boomer approaches Bailey and Barley.)   Boomer: I see you enjoyed your game. Now, how about we hop on the couch with your sisters, cousins, mom, your uncle, and auntie?   Bailey and Barley: Okay, dad!   (Bailey and Barley sit beside Boomer, as he has Birdie on his lap. Bubbles has Brittany sitting beside her. Buttercup has Brooke on her lap and Brick has Brent on his lap with Blaze sitting beside him.)   Brent: Dad, I wanna be like you, mom, Uncle Boomer, and Auntie Bubbles when I grow up!   Brittany: Yeah, we get to do all sorts of adventures.   Blaze: Fight bad guys.   Brooke: Fly around the city!   Barley: Help out people in need.   Bailey: Stop fires from happening!   Birdie: And do all that stuff before we go to bed!   (Brick, Boomer, Buttercup, and Bubbles chuckle.)   Brick: We know you guys will be great heroes.   Boomer: There will be a lot of hard work to be done.   Buttercup: But if you’re tough and brave enough, we’re all sure you can make it.   Bailey: Speaking of making it, when are Uncle Butch, Auntie Blossom, Brendan, Blake, and Belle coming back from grocery shopping?   Bubbles: Well, they should be back in an hour. It looks like they’re getting as much good food as they can.   Boomer: Sometimes I still can’t believe how much all of you kids have grown. Bailey, Barley, you’re growing taller and stronger every time I see you. And Brittany, you’re getting a lot smarter than I thought.   Bubbles: And Birdie, let’s not forget about how fast you continue to run.   Bailey, Barley, Brittany, and Birdie: Aw, mom, dad, thanks.   Buttercup: Speaking of growing, Brooke your speech is getting clearer every time. That’s great.   Brick: And Blaze, your mom has seen how tougher you continue to grow. Brent, you’re even fast enough to give your Uncle Boomer and Auntie Bubbles a good race.   Blaze: Thanks, Dad, we’re really happy to have you as our parents.   Brick: Bubs, I can’t even believe how fast we became parents. Even during college.   Bubbles: Yeah, I can’t believe it too. It was clear that Boomie and I were meant for each other. So, getting married while being in college was crazy, but…
