This is something I kind of drew randomly... xD;;; As I do with most things. :m I've been wanting to draw Tim and Clair for a while, but I've never been sure of how I want Clair to look. She never looks quite right... or something. xD
Tim is supposed to be in 8th, 9th, or 10th grade when he's going out with Clair... but I always draw him the same no matter what. xD; ... "orz I just don't feel like drawing him at a different age than the age I normally draw him, which is 17. How much could he really change between 15 and 17 years old, anyways...? o3o;;
I actually kind of like how this came out, but I was struggling to get Clair to sit on Tim's lap. Her head was drawn up higher than I had anticipated. :M;;; Also, it kind of looks like Clair has 7 toes on one foot... but that's just her other foot showing from behind. xD; No, she doesn't have crazy feet...
Floating bodies, woooooo!
You're in for some fun today! 8D ...Or some weirdness. I was thinking about some of the old ideas I had for some of my characters, and I decided that I'm going to share some of them with you. xD Haha. This post'll probably be kind of long.
I had considered all of these things at one point in time or another...
1) Tim x Jake
HAHA... this is one of the weirder ideas, now that I look back on it... By the way, yes, that's what Jake looks like.
So I had this idea that Tim's best friend secretly has a crush on Tim, and is super jealous when he's going out with Clair. When Tim breaks up with Clair, Jake somehow gets Tim alone in his room and says "It's about time you broke up with that <b-word>," and (I'm dead serious about this)... he rapes Tim.
LIKE I SAID, one of the weirder ideas. The point was that Jake doing it with Tim was supposed to make Tim bi-curious. I decided that that would be kind of pointless, 'cause Tim didn't really need Jake as an instigator to make him think about his orientation. And then Jake's character became kind of homophobic, as time went by.
2) Tim's Grandparents and Swing Music
This was kind of a random thing. I had this idea that Tim was close to his grandparents, and his grandparents got him addicted to swing music. I decided that wouldn't be plausible because Tim's Mom wouldn't take Tim to her parents, and her parents would be too young to be into swing music anyways. xD;
3) Smoking Danny
This idea is still pending, actually. :o I thought that if Danny smoked, it'd be a good way to contrast with his sugary-girly personality and emphasize that he's actually older than he tries to be. I mean, I draw him like a teenager and he tries to act like a kid, but he is in his 20s.
But I also don't want to do this idea, because I don't like having my characters smoke... ;u; The only one who smokes for real right now is Tim's mom.
4) Flirty Rick/Dare x Rick
I considered this waaaaaaay early when I created Rick. There are still some remnants of flirty Rick floating around in my gallery... As for Dare x Rick, I considered that for a small amount of time. Takara always wanted me to do Dare x Rick, and I do think it's kind of cute, but I just don't think Dare has that kind of attraction to Rick. xD
5) Jo x Kasey
You probably already know this, but I originally created Jo and Kasey to be a couple. I actually think they're pretty cute together (and I'm not even crazy about gl), but Kasey's too straight to be in a relationship with Jo. :m Although, it is canon for Jo to have a crush on Kasey. But by the time the timeline reaches the current time in OFAV she's already given up on Kasey.
6) Dean x Kasey
This was always going to be a little bit of a gag pairing...
I still think it's plausible for Kasey to crush on Dean, but they'd never become a serious pairing because Kasey crushes on any attractive boy she meets.
7) Damian x Rick
I'm pretty sure I originally created Damian to be a love interest for Rick. xD Damian is completely straight, by the way...
8) Rick Gets Drunk, And...
This was a weird scene idea for RB:SI, where Rick gets drunk and starts mackin' on Dare. The scene was cliche, so I decided it's not going to be drawn. Rick's too smart to "accidentally" drink alcohol, anyways. :P
9) Emo Dare
When I first created Dare in Rock Band 2, I was planning on him having a typical emo personality. There's still some remnants of this here and here, but by the time you reach this pic, the personality change had already happened.
10) Ginger Cassidy (Tim's Mom); also, "Normal" Cassidy
Having Cassidy be a blonde was only decided last year... I thought that Tim would've gotten his looks from his mom, until I came up with the idea of him looking almost exactly like his dad.
Also, back when Tim was just Tim and had no story, his mom was a pretty normal lady living in a normal house.
11) "Chibi forms" in Dreams; Also, blonde Luli
This is a kind of obscure idea I had. xD; I was trying to give a reason to why Luli looks so chibi while everyone else looks more detailed... and I thought that maybe everyone had a "simplified" form in Dreams and they could switch back and forth at will. xD I don't remember what the point was... I think it was you had to be in a simplified form to get into some certain building... idk. Also, I originally planned for Luli to be blonde. :9
12) Nicholay Crushing on Isaac; Also, Tome Magic
Nicholay still looks up to Isaac like a father, but the idea before was that he was so young that he confused his admiration for love. Yeah... Nicholay's not that ignorant (?), so I scrapped that.
Nicholay also used to fight with tomes (books), like mages in Fire Emblem. Now he just uses rings and bracelets to focus his power, while even more skilled mages use only their MIND AND BODY...
13) Faida Turns into a Bird
I'm still not sure what the outcome of Faida's story will be (not that you know any of it 'cause I haven't posted much about her), but an idea was that she's sick and is going to turn into a bird. ...yeah, idk. Still not sure what I'm doing with her.
14) Old Man Gaelnis
I originally planned for Falorin's main minion to be an old man... and then I made Gaelnis, and decided against that. xD
15) Depressed/anorexic/bulemic Rick
SO THIS ONE'S KIND OF DEPRESSING.........
Even back in the early days of Rick, I had already decided that Rick would have a moment in 9th grade when he comes out to Dare and gets bullied at school for it. But another thing I had considered was that Rick was so upset that Dare didn't like him that he would cut himself, and would skip meals and other stuff to get skinnier (because skinnier = more like a girl = Dare would like him better, or something). In the current story, Rick does occasionally skip dinner and loses some weight... but not because he wants to look like a girl, it's because he's too embarassed/ashamed to be around his family and is busy thinking about things in his room. Nowadays I think Rick's smart enough not to intentionally do anything destructive to himself.
16) Divorced Stef
I didn't know how to draw this one, except to draw Stef in a wedding ring... It's probably on the wrong hand. :U
Anyways, I had this idea at one point that Stefan was married at one point, but decided that was kind of weird. I think I only even thought about that because Takara came up with these weird quotes for Stefan to say. xD One of them was "I tell my wife about you", so wife reminded me of divorce, and... yeah.
NOW YOU KNOW THE WEIRD THINGS THAT GO ON IN MY MIND WHILE I TRY TO DECIDE WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE MY CHARACTERS ARE... Sorry for the ridiculously long post. xD;
I think I'm going to start tagging my posts in this world. ;o It'll help with organization. When you click on a tag in a world, I didn't realize that it brings you to all the posts with the tag only in that particular world. That's pretty cool. It's kind of like google search! Like if I tag my posts with the names of the characters in the post, I'll be able to find all the posts with those characters in it! 8D It's amazing! No really, I'm pretty impressed with this. I think I'll spend my day adding tags to my old posts here, too. :m FUN LIFE.
Hey, I drew some stuff! :D Yeah... xD;
I felt like drawing Dare yesterday, so I did. SURPRISINGLY, I like how this came out! ;0; Usually I mess up Dare's face when I draw him facing the right, but he actually came out looking like Dare this time around. xD Also, I've found that I'M ACTUALLY STARTING TO ENJOY INKING... OH MAN. What is going on. o____o I guess that's a good thing, because it means I might finish more pictures than I used to. xD
Oh yeah, I drew him in the outfit I drew him in here, just like I said I would. >:D
Hey, it's Gabe. Takara showed me this song recently, and now it's been in my head. xD; I drew Gabe because the song's called Graduate and Gabe did really bad in school... The song's not really about literal graduation, I think. But whatever. Gabe's not in school anymore anyways. :D
This took like 30-ish minutes to draw during study hall... idk if that's fast or slow or what, But I obviously get scribbly when I'm trying to draw fast. >3>
Also, I doodled a semi-realistic Gabe because I was trying to figure out what his hair would look like in real life. :d Because obviously I don't know what I'm doing when I'm drawing his hair in cartoon style...
This scan came out really bad for some reason. .____.
Lastly, here's a TAOMAR teaser page. This is a scene from chapter 4, which hasn't happened yet. xD; The basic plot of that chapter is Sheik is helping Roy with his grades so Roy doesn't move to a lower level class.
Yeah! I always end these posts abruptly... xD; I think I've said this before.
Anyways, thanks for viewing. :D
YEAH. I got a new sketchbook... so I'm going to upload some of the sketches from my old sketchbook, and some stuff from my new sketchbook. :D Just because...
This is ALLLLLLL THE WAY FROM NEW YEARS... I was going to draw Eagle and Kor in a new years picture, but I didn't. xD; I mainly wanted to post this just 'cause I like that random doodle of Dean Johnson... >3> I want to upload a colored picture of Dean someday.
Old sketch of Tim's mom, Cassidy. The legs are kind of weirdo, but eh. :I I like drawing Cassidy's hair, but I don't really like her.... so I don't draw her often. xD
Stefan sketch! I actually like this, but I'm not going to ink it. HEHE... Sorry. xD; But there's a big background... and I hate coloring backgrounds. :I And that's my excuse.
I was thinking of this song when I drew this, because the guitar at the beginning reminds me of raindrops. :m And this band also just reminds me of Stefan for SOME REASON...
Deannnnn. I'll probably finish this picture eventually... xD; But idk, I'm not crazy about it. We'll see.
My friend who created Dean said he looked buffer here. ._.
Gabe and Stefan. I wanted to draw people from the back. :U And then my friend made the ">3< SO CUTE!" comment.
CORN. Okay. I probably won't finish this either... """"""orz I'M SORRY, I'M LAZY!
Doodles from my new sketchbook.... HMNNNHIIIO is surprisingly fun to draw. xD
In my Pokemon game, I named my character Oliver... so I always imagined HMNNNHIIIO to belong to Dare. xD Aha. In my new file I named my character Dare... yeah. DARE IS A POKEMASTER.
Something I drew today... I used a REAL PENCIL and not a mechanical pencil! :O Last time I drew with a normal pencil, I drew Tim also... hm. I probably won't finish this, it was just some random thing that I didn't even know what I was doing. Hence the strange pose.
AND... That's all. :D
Dare was complaining because I hadn't drawn him in a while. He also told me to make a new reference-type-thing of him.
(Actually, I just told myself those things but...)
Anyways I doodled up a reference-thing of things that I usually keep in mind when drawing Dare. I think I'm going to be talking a lot about nothing, so be prepared... xD
Yup. I put in Dare's waaaaay old reference that he has a "long-ish" torso, but I've always drawn him with a short torso, short legs, and small shoulders. Idk, I just like to make him look young, which is also in the way I draw him with round cheeks. You probably realize (because I used to mention it so much) that I really enjoy make Dare look younger than his 18 years; I also make him act younger than 18, too. Idk, I just like to emphasize his youth and have people tease him about his age. (People commonly mistake him for a freshman, etc etc...) Idk when this started... oh, wait I do! It was when I made him the smallest height possible in Rock Band 2 the video game. xD; That's also where his short height came from. He's 5'6. Oh, and I was 5'6 at the time I decided on that, so I felt it was a good height for some reason...
I think I'm 5'7 now. 8D Hehe.
Yeah. But I draw Dare with more kiddish and little features than normal teen boys, like Tim:
I've always drawn Tim with a pretty long torso for some reason... I also hate drawing two eyes. DDDD:
If you notice the little note in the Dare picture about his eyes, that's something that I specifically do for Dare. I generally give my characters the same eyes (because I'm terrible. orz), but ever since this picture (KSJFALSKF EW), I've drawn Dare with a dark eyelid (I guess is what it is) and a thick outer lash. Idk why. It just looks Dare-ish to me at this point. xD
Because Dare's so short, I find it hard to take him seriously... xD;;; I think his height and little-kid stature also makes him look less stereotypical emo. He doesn't even look that emo to me, but the hair I guess makes him look emo-ish. Although it's a lot more voluminous than standard emo hair...
By the way if you're new here, Dare's not emo. He gets slightly annoyed when people call him emo...
Although, I can't say that he or I know what classifies someone as emo. I'm pretty sure it started out as a sub-genre of rock.
Speaking of stereotypically emo, I drew Dare in what I consider emo-ish clothes. 8D
Haha. This is something I imagine he'd do for a magazine if he was in one, since he's a rock star of sorts... Aha. I kind of like this outfit. Maybe I'll draw him in it again.
Alright, I'm done talking! 8D Thanks for reading!
