Planning for stories and stuff.
Word, dawg.

This is a world I made mostly for my own use, but I made it a public world anyways. I'll be posting things about story outlines, my characters, my comics (including fan comics), WIPs, ect... It's pretty much a world where I can store information and/or plan things. xD

Below are short descriptions of my stories to help you know what's going on. xD It also shows which characters are in which story, along with their extended profile if I have one made. Some stories aren't mentioned because I don't work on/think about them often. Therefore, not all of my characters are mentioned.

More Pointless Things!

I post so many useless things and doodles in this world. orz

External Image
Not really a true "Draw This Again" meme, but DO I EVER TRULY DO THEM? No.
Anyways, these are commissions I did of random bunny people, for some reason. The left was for shinshou on tinierme, while the right was for snow-rabbit148 on gaia.
Things that have changed for me as far as drawing goes is digital line art (which is thinner and colored), digital shading (which is usually cell shading + airbrush), and ~*~FACES~*~! Here's a long blob of footnotes from deviantART because I'm not cool enough to type something new.
I've always been really frustrated by the way I draw faces on people, because I never used to draw them with logical sense. I was aware I drew them weirdly, but I didn't bother to try to change them because... I just was lazy.... o3o;;;; But sometime last year something helped me figure out how to draw faces better. Weirdly enough, I think it was a drawing of my Physics teacher I did back in May of last year that indirectly helped me figure out faces. (IT WAS A GIFT, OKAY) Drawing my Physics teacher made me want to make a character with short hair and a different chin... which is how Noland came into existence! 8D Partially. I had been thinking about Noland's personality for about a month or less, but I didn't know what he should look like. He actually does kind of resemble my Physics teacher in the first sketches I drew of him, but that's mostly because of the dark shaded hair.
Anyway, I've somehow figured out a way to draw heads and faces that makes at least more sense to me than it did, so that's good... I really do want to get better at face shapes. :M;;; So far, I can only draw 3-ish vaguely different face shapes. xD; AHA... but I'll get better.

Also, something else about Noland relevant to that large blob of text! My friend from real life commented on this asking if I modeled Noland after a her physics teacher from my high school. I didn't (I had a different physics teacher), but Noland actually is a lot like her teacher from what I've heard. xD; I even found this perfect quote from his "rate my teacher" profile that easily could be applied to Noland:
"No idea what on earth he is doing.. It is truly saddening because you can see that he is extremely smart, and genuinely wants us to understand [English], and he is so passionate about it. BUT, he is terrified of high schoolers."
I actually didn't post that for you guys, I posted it here so I can remember it. THIS IS MY WORLD, I'LL DO WHAT I WANT.
Punks. >:V

STEFAN BEING ALL EMBARRASSED. I like drawing random blushing dudes, okay... ;U;
I have so much less to say about this compared to the previous picture. .___.

External Image
I call this, "Gabe Gesturing at Nothing, Forever."
I wanted to do a quick animation of something, but animating takes so long. ""orz This took longer than I thought, and it's only 7 frames...! xD;; I could've added more frames to make it less choppy, but meeehhhhh... animating is hard. BUT SERIOUSLY, It's really difficult because you have to make everything the same size as it was in the previous slide, and make sure every part of the person makes sense relative to the previous slide... I don't feel like going back and fixing Gabe's sleeves. I KNOW THEY WOBBLE. ;A; Bububububuh. I didn't even give him a tattoo because I know I would mess it up somehow. xD;;;;
As lazy as this animation came out, it's actually more detailed than any of the animations I did in that English project last school year. -u-b

I'm going to get back to studying now. :V HAPPY ALMOST FRIDAY!

Genderbent Danny + Genderbent Jo Concept

MORE POINTLESS DOODLES! 8D Well, this one's actually an idea for this challenge. I wanted to genderbend someone I don't normally draw, so here's genderbent Danny!

External Image
And here's her theme song. (Actually, Danny intentionally acts like a ditz. BUT THE VOICE IS SO FITTING I CAN SEE IT COMING OUT OF FEMALE DANNY'S MOUTH.)

Female Danny (who I guess would still be called Danny) was actually really fun to design! 8D I like how she came out. Danny's always had this sort of "nerd-but-not-really" sort of appeal to him, so I tried to go with that for the design. I thought scene hair would go well with the thick glasses... but scene hair confuses me because I keep seeing it as a mullet. orz

SPEAKING OF HAIR, I've been drawing Danny's hair as brown for a while now. I think I'm going to change it to black, or a sort of ashen color. ...this will only increase his likeness to Christian Siriano...;;;

Idk what sort of differences there are between Male Danny and Female Danny as far as personality goes. Everything feels like it translates over exactly the same. .u. I'LL GIVE IT SOME THOUGHT, I GUESS.

So yeah. There's my post on Danny as Avril Lavigne.

Edit: I did one of Jo, too, because it'd be fun to draw them together. 8D This took like 10 minutes to draw, so SORRY IT'S SO SLOPPY.

This one kind of weirds me out because this just looks like Jo's head on a man's body, to me. He does have different hair and a bigger nose, though...! 8D;

I didn't really know how to translate "stereotypical-looking floozy" into male form, so I just made him look like a stereotypical jerk. (??? HE JUST LOOKS LIKE GABE!) You can't tell from this picture, but Male Jo is wearing the kind of baggy pants that always fall off and reveal BOXERS AGH.

Personality-wise, mostly the same. Probably a smidge more masculine, as Female Danny would be a smidge more feminine. He's still a make-up artist, because WHY NOT.

Also, he is doing the exact same pose as Gabe is in the previous post. Oops.

I ACTUALLY HAVE TO DO MORE HOMEWORK NOW, so there's the end of that. xD;

TATTOO

I didn't know what to title this. Just thought I'd post that I changed Gabe's chest tattoo! 8D I changed it from this monstrosity to this different monstrosity:
External Image
Yep. AGH, SHIRTLESS. I mean...
Colored tattoos are too difficult for me to work with, so... yeah. Black tattoo for you, Gabe. :V I think black design-ish tattoos look cooler anyway, in my opinion. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT TATTOOS. Nothing, is the answer. .3.
GABE, STOP PRETENDING TO LOOK BASHFUL, WE ALL KNOW YOU WANT TO DO THIS:

External Image
Weird anatomy, wooooo! :D I think I drew this like a month ago, and was like, "HAHA. GABE....;;;" when I finished it.

SPEAKING OF GABE, which I guess I have been this whole time... Here's a random comic thing with Gabe, Kasey, and Jo! This takes place 4-ish years before the current OFAV timeline, when Gabe and Jo just moved to France. For the first year or so, the three of them all lived together in an apartment.
Also, kind of PG-13 warning for swearing, and weird conversation topic.
External Image
I posted this on dA just now to get it the right size, so here's the long footnotes I put with it:
Kasey and Gabe's relationship initially is like how it is in this comic. They have some problems because

  • Gabe's never had many female friends and consequently isn't very good at interacting with them as a whole
  • Kasey gets crushes on almost every guy she meets (including Gabe, for a while)
  • Kasey prematurely thinks that since Gabe's gay, she can treat him like a girl/assume gay stereotypes on him. (this one's not really pictured in the comic.)

That third reason Gabe and Kasey don't get along is kind of weird, because Kasey kind of simultaneously holds two (incorrect) images of Gabe: Gabe acts "straight," so he probably likes girls even though he says he's gay; and Gabe says he's gay, so he probably has good fashion sense/watches musicals/etc according to gay stereotypes. They contradict each other to some degree, but... it's Kasey. :V SHE THINKS WHAT SHE WANTS, I GUESS.

ALSO, sorry about the borderline sexist comments from Gabe. HE'S NOT BEING SPITEFUL... and panel 3's "this" means "this action," not "this person." By the way, speaking of Gabe! In the third panel, I'd like to mention that Gabe does flirt with straight guys, but he usually does so to get a reaction out of the other person than to pursue romantic action with the person. (? weird sentence.)

UM. WELL, I HOPE THAT ENTERTAINED YOU TO SOME DEGREE. Slightly regretting posting this. xD;;; I actually have this little story (?) in mind about Jo, Kasey, and Gabe all living together, and how Gabe and Kasey end up coming to terms with each other. (WOW, KASEY IN THE LIMELIGHT?!?!?!?! Or sort of. It'll probably be mostly Gabe. "orz)

AND SO THERE'S THAT, I GUESS.

Note: If you're straight, you probably shouldn't flirt with your gay friends. Same with vise versa. And if you're bi, flirt with people compatible with you, I guess. DON'T FOLLOW KASEY'S EXAMPLE, BASICALLY...

....The end of this post. WOW, SO MUCH GABE!

WIP and Doodles

My sister said she liked this sketch I posted a couple days ago. I told her I'd try to finish it. (This picture was giving me really weird vibes, though, and inking it felt very awkward! Idk why. .____.) But yeah, here's what I've got so far. Sorry for the non-scanned picture. I don't feel like putting stuff into the scanner. :V SO MUCH WORK!
External Image
Gabe is so bendy. Idk.

External Image
I decided to draw Stefan's Boss again! :V You may not remember her. I only mentioned her once. I drew her 'cause I've been wanting to draw Tomato and Stefan when they used to live in New York... and this lady was present. I haven't gotten around to any comics, yet, though. xD;
I still don't have a name for her, but I'm leaning toward something like Taylor Rose.

External Image
Trying to figure out soft shading on SAI. I've figured something out that makes at least somewhat more sense to me, so maybe I'll get better if I keep trying! :V But idk.

REALLY LAZY-TONED POST BECAUSE... idk, I'm sleepy or something. Thanks for reading, if you did! I'm going to take a break from computer-ing, now.

Noland Expression Meme

OH YEAH. Forgot to post this.

External Image

Noland's crying face is the easiest to draw out of my characters, I think. BECAUSE HE IS JUST A BOO HOO BOY. (???) Gabe, on the other hand, is really difficult to draw crying. I have a total of one successful example that I don't feel like scanning.

For the submissive/dominant ones, I never know what to draw. xD; I stuck Stefan in there because I didn't know what to do otherwise. Noland looked basically the same in college as he does now... idk how that's possible, but HAH. WHATEVER... >3>;;; I wrote in his profile that "he aged quickly" or something, but these days Noland looks like a 5 year old. I don't know whyyyyy...... ;A;
Also, the sound effect there is "ruffle," but wrote it as "rffl" for unknown reasons.

For the enraged one, I was a little unsure of what to draw. Noland doesn't really get real angry. The thing I drew is from a scene where Chrystal keeps asking Noland if she can try his cigarettes. I HAVE MENTIONED THAT NOLAND SMOKES... but I haven't really talked about it much, I guess. Here's this, as PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE.

External Image
Not a photo. Obviously. UNLESS THIS IS A PHOTO OF MY COMPUTER SCREEN! Which it's not.
I think this is from September, so it's RATHER OLD.

I think Noland has already undergone CHARACTER PERSONALITY EXAGGERATION SYNDROME. That's not real, but it is now. I believe it's called Flanderization on TVtropes.
BUT REALLY, CHECK HIM OUT IN THE FIRST POST I POSTED HIM IN. It's already been 7 months since I made him, actually.
It's partially because I shaded Noland's hair and made it look dark that he seems different, but he's also somewhat more bashful now than he was. Idk! I think Noland's starting to overlap with Rick too much, so I'll try to fix that somehow.

But uh. Yeah. I should be reading for homework..........
BYE GUYS, HAVE A NICE DAY! C:
