|“||What I learned from comic book artists is exaggeration. My stuff is exaggerated, even when it looks "realistic." It's never realistic. I exaggerate proportions, I exaggerate expressions, poses – hands are raised extra high, legs kicking, faces really distorted. It's action. Just like in the comics – when Captain America would punch someone, he wouldn't just give `em a poke in the face, they'd be knocked across the page. So a lot of that ACTION is something I try to get into my drawings.||”|
|— Drooaygah, 2008|
Drooaygah is an American spanking artist. He has been doing spanking art for more than twenty years (as of 2006), but until he became a web person in the mid-90's, he believed he was the only one. He was quite pleasantly surprised when he discovered others shared his strange hobby.
Drooaygah's work is primarily about juveniles and is often in the form of comic book stories. He has said on several occasions that in his spanking drawings, his identification is entirely with the juvenile protagonist: "that kid getting spanked is always ME." This is true even in the case of his most frequent character, Cynthia Kim, a young Asian-American girl. He occasionally does X/m scenarios as well.
He views his artwork as a way for him to experience the fantasy of being a youngster getting a spanking, and this is why he most often uses the comic book format - it allows him to experience more of the entire scenario of being spanked - the spanking itself and the buildup and aftermath.
Drooaygah has been lurking around online communities such as alt.sex.spanking and soc.sexuality.spanking for a decade, but only began posting artwork in 2003. Very little of his earlier work (pre-21st century) survives. Drooaygah has cited as his primary inspirations American comic book artists of the 60's, 70's and 80's. Among spanking artists he feels closest thematically and technically to Ron Wilson, 3mfd, and Ann.
Drooaygah's work has primarily circulated privately. Several pieces have appeared on the Handprints site, Anime Brats (now defunct) and Anime OTK. In June 2009, Anime OTK deleted some of Drooaygah's artwork from the site, and when this happened again in September 2009, Drooaygah decided to leave the site that he had previously supported, as his artwork was apparently no longer welcome there.
