Planning for stories and stuff.
Word, dawg.

note: this intro hasn't been thoroughly updated in a couple years

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.

New Story: Felix + Ms. Layla

Hi guys! Here's a couple more concept sketches of the 3 other main characters from my new story. :)

External Image
External Image
The top picture is the first drawing I did for this story. The guy with the wings is the inventor guy. I've decided to name him Felix Stieber for the time being. :V Yeah, he looks like Rick right now... I need to fix that. xD
Felix is a meek and somewhat sickly fellow whose talents are mathematics and inventing. He gets his income by inventing items commissioned by the townspeople. He also helps with automotive studies, such as building off of the latest trains and cars. Moreover, he uses his inventing skills for helping himself around the house when his physical weakness gets in the way of his productivity. Despite his skills in the sciences, he envies people with lyrical creativity.

On Felix's lap in the bottom picture is his robot "daughter":
External Image
BECAUSE WHAT STORY IS COMPLETE WITHOUT A ROBOT. (?) Also, I can't draw top hats. She doesn't have a name yet. Suggestions anyone? :D)
Felix's daughter is kind of just a stock character right now. The ever curious, naive, but completely adorable child! I'm still trying to figure out exactly what kind of character she is. She becomes a fast friend of Chiminey's.

As it says in the above picture, Felix's daughter was crated in the image of Ms. Layla:
External Image
I don't see the resemblence OKAY, WELL. If it was in color, you would be able to see more easily.
Ms. Layla is Felix's love interest who has little to no romantic interest in him. A lot of the reason Felix wants to learn to write well is to woo Ms. Layla, who wants to marry a famous author/poet. And... yeah. Her name comes from this song by Eric Clapton. 8D;
Designing her outfit was bothersome. orz Even now, I'm not 100% sure about it. But for the most part, I like it. ;u; Her collar is huge, though. Apparently, one's wealth is directly proportional to the size of their collar. A lot of her design was based off of Sophie's Mom from Howl's Moving Castle, though. xD;;;;;;;; As you can see in this fake screenshot that I traced...
External Image
HEE-HEE.
/terrible

And that's all the characters I have right now. :V I'll probably need a design for Chiminey's dad. I'm still trying to figure out these characters, too... we'll see if I actually get this anywhere. I don't know if I'll make a comic at this point. I'm not sure. xD; Anyways, thanks for reading! c:

New Story Ideas + Chiminey

Hey guys! I talked briefly in another post a couple months ago about a new story idea that I have. Since I had pretty much no idea of what I wanted it to be about, I haven't posted about it at all since then. Now that I'm starting to work out some of the characters/etc, I think I can start to talk about it a bit more! 8D I've only got a couple of sketches scanned at the moment, but there are several more doodles and things that I'll compile some time into another post. This post is going to mostly be about the general story, and the main character Chiminey.

I haven't decided on a title for this story yet, so I'll just be calling it "the story" in this post. :m The idea for this story started out with me wanting to draw Victorian-esque clothing and artificial wings:
External Image
(Pic's pretty outdated, but w/e. xD; The characters are a bit different looking now.)
Stories about desires for flying/etc have already been done before, so it's been taking me some time to come up with a story that has machinery and cool things in it that doesn't involve the desire to travel and see the world. Basically, I didn't want to draw an adventure story. I'm just not very good at them. ;u; You know me and my inability to make flowing story lines...

Anyways, the basis of the story is a young girl goes to a middle-aged inventor seeking employment to learn the basics of inventing. The inventor discovers the young girl to be a skilled writer, and wants to learn how to write from her.
There is more, but that's the absolute basics of the story. :D; Not the most action-packed story line, but I always try to interest you guys through characters and character interactions. Hopefully I've been succeeding to some extent so far... ;u; (Although, I've been pretty inactive as of late.)

The two characters in the above picture are the "young girl" and "inventor" in the above summary, and are 2 of the 4 characters that I have so far.

The girl on the bottom's name is Chiminy/Chiminey (spelling still pending; sorry if I interchange), and she's the main character of the story. Chiminey is 14 years old, and is the only daughter of an old coal minor/factory laborer of some sort. She wants to be an inventor so she can create machines to help her aging father with his work. She has no mom (UH OH, CLICHE!), but I haven't decided if she's dead or just doesn't live with Chiminey and her dad.
When Chiminey does begin working under the direction of the inventor, she discovers inventing is much more difficult than she anticipated. Many of her attempts at creating machinery are disasters.
She has a hobby of writing and is rather good at it, but she has no desire to seek a career in literature. When the inventor tells her he wants to learn how to write well, Chiminey becomes his teacher.

Since she was raised by her dad--who is a pretty gruff person--Chiminey grew into a pretty rough girl. She's used to hard labor, because she helps her dad out a lot with his work. I posted a picture of her some months ago with her color scheme, but here's a slightly more detailed (and much more tilted) pic of her without her jacket:
External Image
One thing I kept in mind when I was designing Chiminey is that I wanted to create a female character that would be drawn like a male character (like the arms and legs). I have a couple male characters that I draw like female characters (mainly Tomato), but I didn't have any vise versa. Another thing about her is that SHE'S MY FIRST FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER...! I've mentioned this sometime before that none of my stories have a girl as the absolute main character. I thought it would be nice to have a girl in the spotlight for a change.
What I like about Chiminey is that she's not a supposed "girly girl" (which tends to be my default for girls), but she's also not a tomboy. She does act pretty "guyish" I suppose you could say because she was raised by her dad, but I'm not trying to broadcast hers as a tomboy or as a character that is "thwarting female stereotypes". She's probably not even aware of what it is to be a tomboy. Chiminey is just a girl that has some overlap with standard male personas, which makes her really fun to draw since I like drawing guys so much.
By the way, she's not a tsundere. It kind of seems like that at first, but she's not the kind of person who hides her opinions about someone she likes by insulting them (unlike Stefan, for example). She's just a little difficult to get through to.
I wanted to have a relatively young character this time around, which is why she looks so young in the first picture. She's 14, so she actually looks too young there... but eh.

I feel like I could say more, but I've already typed a lot. xD; Thank you for reading! I'll post about the other characters in another post.

Regular Show Doodles

NO REGULAR SHOW CATEGORY?!??!?!? WHY...
Anyways, I want to do some Regular Show fan art some day, so I made some Mordecai and Rigby gijinkas because I can't draw animals.
8D
External Image
I didn't draw the animal Rigby and Mordecai, those are from tha Goog. :V (Google.)
Kind of heavily inspired by this fellow's rendition of them. 8D

I didn't want to give Rigby glasses, but I also didn't want to give him weird dark circle eye-things, so... glasses it is. :m He kind of looks like a doof, but... he kind of is, so there. 8D

I'll use these designs for a Regular Show picture some day. Some day... SOME DAY, SOME WAY!
Um... and yeah! :D; The end of that. I need to do some physics homework now. ;u;

Gabe and Danny Sketch

My fingers instinctively wanted to type "Gabe and Stef." .______________________.

Anyways, here's a sketch I did just now.
External Image
GABE AND DANNY, WOO! Exciting.

At first, I liked Danny's pose... but now all I can notice is the way his leg vanishes and that he looks like a clapping baby. (??) I've also been having trouble with Danny's bangs recently. I'm trying to make them go back to being the way they used to look instead of looking like Tomato's bangs or something. >3> Not that you would have noticed, because I don't post a lot of Danny. But I doodle him from time to time.

And yep.
I WANT TO BE ABLE TO INK DIGITALLY.
Ahem. HAPPY WEEKEND...?

New Characters in "Foreigner"

I don't think anyone really reads these posts when I post them after 9:00, but whatever. xD (Why?)

Anyways, title's kind of weirdo if you don't know what Foreigner is... but it means I have new characters for "Foreigner" (the story with Kor and Eagle who I never draw).

External Image
The girl is Michelle, and the guy on the bottom's name is "Dailen", pronounced "day-len", for the time being. Yep. They work at Eagle's tattoo and piercing shop.
The text next to Michelle says "Michelle is an extremely thin, tall, and bony woman who works at Eagle's tattoo and piercing shop. Despite her bangs being eternally in her eyes, she's quite good at tattooing. She is most likely older than the clothes she wears [as in the style] and how old she says she is. ([she's] anywhere from 25 to 45.)" I wanted to make a reeeeeeeeeeeally thin character, for some reason. I guess she doesn't even look that thin... but she's thinner than how I draw most of my characters. I MEAN... HER HEAD IS WIDER THAN HER WAIST, SO... I also for some reason wanted to have a blonde girl with straight bangs covering her eyes. xD
The text next to Dailen is "extremely OCD. Insomniac. Asexual. He's pretty skinny, too. Think Drake Bell in physique." I had decided early on that I wanted to have some guy at the tattoo shop be OCD for no particular reason. xD; But I also decided to make him asexual because I don't have any characters who explicitly say they're asexual. Although, I do have 3 asexual characters: Ms. Marigold (who I recently think is really cool), Falorin, and Rick.
You: WHA-- BUT I THOUGHT RICK WAS GAY.
Okay, so. I decided this a while back and never told you guys, but Rick is actually homoromantic asexual. This has no effect on his personality at all, it just means he doesn't want to have sex with people. He actually calls himself gay, but by my word he's asexual.
But enough about Rick.
I want the characters at Eagle's tattoo shop to be kind of quirky, off-beat people, so that's what I'm trying to do with Michelle and Dailen. Trying to do. Yeah.

External Image
A doodle of Michelle on my poetry assignment. :M;;; I tried giving her a different outfit.

External Image
Dailen with a different expression. I'm still not too solid on what kind of personality he's supposed to have. I don't want him to turn into another "random idiot guy character"... which tends to be the personality I give my guy characters. "orz HAHA...

Anyways, this is getting long-ish. Thanks for reading! c:
