Some more character planning/refrences/sketches/something or other. :D
This is the last of Tomato's hair-and-makeup crew. There are other people who do his hair and stuff when he's modeling, but they don't usually stay constant. o3o
Anyways, this is Kasey (left) and Dean (right). More mini profiles:
Special Talent: Make-up
Hobbies: Reading magazines, make-up, hanging out with Jo
Likes: Pop-culture magazines
Dislikes: Haughty people
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Love Intrest: any "hot" guy.
Personality: Gossip-y, bubbly
She's Jo's girlfriend and does Tomato's make-up. She's into pop-culture and is up-to-date on the latest gossip. She loves to gossip. xD; It says in her profile that she dislikes haughty people, and you may be thinking "Isn't Tomato haughty?"
Well... Tomato is nice and up-beat, so she likes him. :D
Name: Dean Johnson
Special Talent: Hair styling, make-up, following orders
Hobbies: Doing whatever Gabe, Jo, Kasey, Tomato, or Stefan tell him to do. (Not really a hobby, but...)
Sexual Orientation: heterosexual
Love Intrest: Leah
This is actually my friend's character! :D Kinda. She drew him in a picture (along with a girl and another guy), and I named him Dean and gave him a personality. She said I could use him. :)
Anyways, Dean is the hairstyling assistant/make-up assistant/wardrobe supervisor for Tomato. Baisically, he gets all the grunt work. xD; He's also the youngest... he's FRESH OUTTA COLLEGE. :D
He's a super pushover, and HAS NO BACKBONE. (not literally.)
People boss him around a lot.
He has a crush on a girl named Leah, but Leah has a boyfriend.
HEY HEY! I got a sharpener. ;D And I can color again! ;w;
Although, I used my freaky scanner for this picture. It likes to scan REALLY bright, so I usually only use it for sketches, line art, or marker pictures. xD; When I finish the picture, I'll use the other scanner...
Yeah! Here's Tim. This would've been my NYAF mascot, but it's super boring so I probably wouldn't have won anyways. And it's not halloween themed and stuff.
So now it's just Tim in NYC for the New York Anime Festival because he's such an anime nerd.This is what my line art looks like when I actually try. Usually I'm way to lazy and simply just trace over the sketch... Sorry. xD;
I think I developed a different colored pencil coloring style after my "Thank You" picture. xD;
I need to do a new character profile of Tim. I've given him some time to develop, and I think he's become more of a round character in my mind. :) He has a reletively boring story, though. >_>
But anyways, yeah, I'll be doing a character profile of him soon.
Some character planning/refrences/sketches/something or other. xD;
On the top-left, there's Gabe. On the top-right, there's his sister Jo. The colored picture is of Tomato's Boyfriend. (Look at that ugly camera. xD;) Here's some mini profiles, I guess...

He does Tomato's hair. xD;; He appears in the comic, so... yeah. He likes to tease Stefan. o3o

Love Intrest: Tomato
HE IS TOMATO'S BOYFRIEND AND HE IS BORING.
Everyone: But he doesn't look gay. D:
I know. I know. But that's secretly the point.
Anyways... yeah. He's boring. However, he understands Tomato's way of thinking and they both surprisingly get along well. He doesn't like Stefan because Stefan is mean to him. :<
....but secretly, Stefan is just jealous. OHH.
This is a sketch of a comic for the Tomato story thing.
It's actually going to be the 3rd page... I can't think of any punchline's for the 2nd page. ;A;
click me to see what I'm talking about!
The last panel is unfinished. I need to fix it. It's so sloppy.
TOMATO'S BOYFRIEND, YOU LOOK LIKE A ZOMBIE.
Tomato's boyfriend's hair is fun to draw.
Sorry if it's hard to read. o3o It's just a sneak-peak, anyways.

First off, I would like to say how unbelievably embarassing it is for me to talk about Rick.
Because he's so. Freaking. DRAMATIC. Or something. He makes even the littlest of things seem like soap-opera material.
But I'll try to get over my embarassment over him, and type what I can. :D;
Umm.... where to start...
Rick is Band Manager of the band Something Impossible, and Dare's (the bassist of the band) best friend. Even though he hasn't been to college yet and isn't educationally qualified to be the band manager, he somehow convinced the record company people into giveing him the job. I dunno how... but he just did. I haven't thought about how yet. xD; He wanted to be the band manager so he could tag along with Dare.
He is a good manager, though. So yay. :>
Although, he's a naturally timid person who depends greatly on people... But he's trying to teach himself to stand up for himself. ._.
Rick is really good at using and fixing electronics. He owns a lot of electronics like cameras, microphones, recording machines, headphones, music players, and stuff... Yeah. Before Dare joined Something Impossible, Dare liked to do covers of songs, and he and Rick recorded the covers at Rick's house. They also sometimes made music videos for the covers, so... that's why Rick has all this tech-y stuff. xD; YAY.
Since the Rock Band comic is mostly about music, I guess I'll talk about what kind of music Rick listens to...
He likes modern pop, like asldroaswre324;'eu LADY GOO GOO GA GA (Lady Gaga). I don't like Lady Gaga. He also likes that Orianthi song that I don't like (According To You). And yeah..... D:<
Rick's also secretly good at dancing. He doesn't really like dancing for fun or anything, but he's good at dance choreography. Usually the only time he dances is if he's teaching someone how to dance.
Hm. So there.
Oh yeah, and he likes collecting hats. HE HAS A (not so secret) HAT FETISH. But not really.
By the way, Rick's last name is a pun/gag. You see, Rick sounds like brick... so... brick stairwell. Like... a staircase made of bricks. xD; So uh... moving on...
Rick moved to Boston when he was in 4th grade. He met Dare in his 4th grade class. And... THEY'VE BEEN FRIENDS EVER SINCE! 8D
Fun times, fun times.
Rick started crushing on Dare when they were in 9th grade. He started wondering about his sexual orientation when he was in 8th grade, but he ignored it. He started to get scared because he thought it was weird that he liked a guy, so he kept to himself and didn't talk to his family much. Eventually, he told Dare that he liked guys, which confused Dare... so... The two of them didn't really talk for a while. Which... made Rick even more worried, because he thought something was wrong with him.
So he cried a lot in his room and skipped dinner and stuff because he didn't feel like talking, and didn't focus on school...
Eventually, Dare talks to Rick and everything is good in the hood. xD;
FUN. (That was all in 9th grade, by the way.)
AND RICK'S BEEN IN LOVE WITH HIM EVER SINCE.
I don't know.
Anyways, the paragraph above didn't really sound that exciting, but it'd be better if I ever drew it.
Which I probably won't since I'm terribly lazy.
WELL, THERE MIGHT BE MORE I COULD SAY ABOUT RICK, BUT I SHALL STOP RIGHT HERE.
SORRY FOR MAKING YOU (what?) READ THIS POST OR SOMETHING. DX
