The title was dramatic to get you to click on this. HAHA. >:D
So yeah, this post is about Stefan and THE ORIGIN OF HIS DESIGN...
Stefan's character design comes from this character Takara and I drew back in... 2006-2007 ish...? Yeah. That was when Takara was big on bands like Taking Back Sunday and Fall Out Boy and the like. :M And as her little sister, I listend to all those songs with her. xD Well, not all of them.
So anyways, we were drawing one day, and we decided to draw a mini-comic-thing of what we imagined to be the singers of the band Taking Back Sunday. I imagined one of them to look like this:
He was basically this really peevish dude who gets annoyed easily. (That is a redundant sentence... >_>;)
Takara drew him the same way too, BUT SO MUCH BETTER BECAUSE SHE IS SO AMAZING.
And when we finished the comic, that was the end of it. I never drew him again.
In 2009, Tomato was created. Feeling it was necessary to add some characters to his story, I decided to give Tomato a manager. Not having any idea of what the manager's design should be, I remembered my version (?) of the Taking Back Sunday dude. I drew him from memory and VOILA. Stefan was born.
And that's how Stefan came to be.......
GREAT STORY, HM? xD
Stefan's personality was also heavily based off of my version of the Taking Back Sunday guy. Like, he gets annoyed easily and is cocky. HOHOHO...
...I don't want to look up what the real Taking Back Sunday people look like, because I'll probably be disappointed...
ARE YOU CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT STEFAN LOOKS LIKE WITHOUT HIS GLASSES AND SUIT...?
If so, here.
(WHO IS THIS. xDD)
Haha... Graph paper. Something I drew in class that I liked. o3o
So yup... Stefan. I actually like Stefan quite a bit. :P He's fun to draw, and I like his character. Although, I think he's kind of a typical character of mine... He's like a combination of Michka and (my) Marth. xD But not exactly, I think he's more peevish...
Oh yeah, and he drinks too much.
Stefan can also be a hypocrite a lot... and contradictory. But that's also just part of the way he is. :M (SO VAUGE... Sorry, I'll talk more about his character some other time. xD)
Enough random ranting about Stefan. xD;
HEY HO! LET'S GO!
Haha, yeah. xD; Um...
I have some sketches and stuff to post of the My Dear Princess characters. So yup...
Some sketches of Falorin, the main antagonist of the story. He's the prince of the country Endergia, also known as the Phantom Country. :0 I'll talk more about him later... I don't feel like talking much. xD
I drew him in the lovely outfit King-sama designed for him. ;3;
NICHOLAY. Ahaha. xD He's a supporting character and a friend of Isaac's. He's a 12-year-old mage/wizard. He appears to be very powerful, but he uses charms such as rings and bracelets to help him focus his magic.
I changed him a bit from his initial design.... Colors are about the same, though. (Not that you would know 'cause I didn't upload any colored pictures of him. xD)
NEW CHARACTER! Woah. xD Actually, she's been in my head... but I never designed her until now.
Her name is Faida, and she is a neutral character. (Not a good character, but not an evil character.) She leans more towards a "good" character though, because she and Hrafn (her boyfriend HAHA) travel with Isaac and his team. :P I'm not exactly sure what her part in the story is yet... she probably has some PROPHETIC POWERS or something, but that's too typical for someone with her design... so I'm still trying to think some stuff out. I'm open for suggestions! xD It'll help me get thinking.
Faida was fun to design, but she's going to be SUCH A BUTT TO DRAW. ;A; Too much random stuff.... And in reality, it's not all that complex. xD
Oh and by the way, Faida Icelandic for "wings that are folded", while her boyfriend's name, Hrafn, is Old Norse (and Icelandic) for "raven" (the bird). COINCIDENCE, FOR SURE... I was searching names on the web and found these two and liked them. xD
Also. Her dress is not actually a mermaid-cut dress, even though I wrote that on the page... I thought it was when I was drawing it, but then I looked online and found I was DECEIVED.
ANYWAYS, THAT'S ALL FOR NOW. I'll talk more about the actual story later... and once I work it out more. orz
Also, I drew these pics in this weird scrapbook with all these dots in it...I decided to use it as a sketchook. xD
Hey guys. Remember Isaac? You may remember him if you're an OLD LADY like me. xD
Just kidding, you're not old.
I'm not that old, either.
Aaanyways, Isaac is an old character of mine that I created in early 2009.
Well, I decided to revamp him a little, edit his story and design and such...
Here's his new desing:
Obviously, not much has changed from his design; mostly my drawing style changed. xD I did change the collar and chest of his shirt, as well as his hair... but only a little. I'm going to come up with a better color scheme, too. :d I'll give his design some INTESNE THOUGHT....
Oh yeah, I'm also working on his story! 8D
Actually, I'm working on the whole Isaac/Falorin/Charlotte story. It's coming along slowly beacuse I have a hard time piecing together what exactly everyone's point in the story is.... Right now, they're all just random characters. xD;;;;;
I'LL THINK IT OVER, DON'T WORRY.
There's actually a lot of characters in the story. ;A; The main cast is Falorin, Isaac, Charlotte, Nicholay, Lucia, Rinchu, Segran, and probably this theif guy and this gypsy girl. (The last two don't have names yet HEHE...)
But I'll leave that story for another post. :d
I'm having a little bit of trouble with Kasey's color scheme. (Kasey's one of the girls who does Tomato's make-up, if you don't remember.)
You see, I originally intended for Kasey to be fair skinned, so I came up with the colors for her outfit based on that. But when I decided I wanted Kasey to be more olive-toned, her outfit didn't match well. Here's Kasey's color scheme at the moment:
Do you have any color suggestions? I have a lot of trouble with colors, so some feedback would be really nice. :)

IIIIT'S DAAAAAAMIAN. Damian is one of my favorite of my OCs for no good reason. xD; I just like him....
Damian is a 20-year-old living in London, England. He has a pretty crappy job at the moment... He works at an electronic appliances shop. He doesn't have a good job b/c as soon as he graduated, he went looking for a job. He didn't go to college or anything... so yeah. His grades were also mediocre. The thing is, Damian is actually very smart, he just doesn't apply himself. :U He meets his cousin Dare one day when Something Impossible goes to London to perform. But before I tell you that story, let me tell you this story...
Damian and Dare are cousins. Dare's mom is Damian's mom's sister. So Dare's mom is Damian's aunt and Damian's mom is Dare's aunt. You may remember that Dare lives with his aunt. That aunt is Damian's mom. :D
Damian is 2 years older than Dare. He was actually at the hospital when Dare was born. Damian and Dare used to play with eachother when they were kids. When Damian was 5, his parents started fighting and got a divorce. Damian's dad gained sole physical custody over Damian as a result of the divorce, so Damian has to live with his dad and stuff. Damian's mom is also thinking of moving to the United States in order to get a job. (She went to college there, so she has friends in the US.)
In the same year, Dare's parents are financially failing and are unable to take care of their child. Firmly believing that she will be able to take care of Dare, Damian's mom legally adopts Dare and moves to the United States. Dare's mom (reluctantly) lets Damian's mom do this because they are sisters. :d
Legally, Dare is actually Damian's mom's son. However, Damian's mom only adopted him because it would make moving to the US much easier on Dare; Dare was only 3-years-old at the time. Since Dare only lived in England for 3 years, he forgot about his parents and Damian and all that.
But anyways, enough about Dare. Damian grows up in England with his dad. Damian and his dad have a very distant relationship... They talk a little, but Damian doesn't like his dad much for "winning full custody" of himself. You see, there was a court case for the divorce and stuff, and Damian's mom lost.... something like that. Damian's dad may have only wanted to win so badly because he wanted to hurt Damian's mom. Damian's dad isn't a nice guy, you see... He's very smart, fairly wealthy, and supposedly handsome (I haven't designed him yet), but not very nice.
So anyways, Damian and his dad live together. In school, Damian initially tried hard to get good grades, but he never recieved any recognition or praise from his dad... so he stopped trying after that.
Even though Damian lives with his dad, he still keeps in contact with his mom through the phone and FACEBOOK (hahehehhah) and stuff. He also knows how Dare looks b/c Damian's mom puts pictures of Dare on her facebook account. Dare is kind of oblivious to all this stuff... Damian's mom usually talks on the phone with Damian when Dare's at school or something. IDK WHY DARE'S SUCH AN IDIOT.
...anyways again. When Damian graduated from high school or secondary school or whatever it's called in England, he moved out and got a job at an electronic appliances store. WHICH BRINGS ME BACK TO WHERE I STARTED. :D Now I can talk about when Damian and Dare meet. (SPOILERS?)
So one day, when Damian is playing his guitar outside the electronics shop during his lunch break (which he always does), it just so happens that Dare and the rest of the Something Impossible crew happen to be walking by. And so, they're REUNITED AND IT FEELS SO GOOOOD! And it goes on....
Lalala... Now about Damian's personality. Damian is a really really chill dude. xD He's got kind of a "go with the flow" additude. He likes to daydream when he's bored, and is super calm. Like, for serious. He's actually a really nice guy, though. He knows how to talk to people. :D Oh yeah, and he loves music. He's good at the acoustic guitar and he likes to sing. :M
I put up there that one of his special skills is pointing out the obvious. It is a very useless skill indeed... To give an example of this skill, let's say for example he's on his way to his apartment and the door is looked. He will then proceed to say "Oh. It's locked." ....no duh, Damian. No. Duh.
I also put up there one of his nicknames is "D". Dare calls him this once... Idk what the situation was (it's unimportant), but Dare addresses in his American accent and says "Yo, D. Where's the remote?" ...or something like that. (Why the remote? xD;) Damian thinks it's weird that Dare called him "D". No, American people don't usually address people by the first letter of their name. But it's been done before...
Damian also thinks anglophiles (people who admire English culture) are embarassing.
Dare is a bit of a stupid anglophile (someone who thinks English culture is cool, but really doesn't know anything about it).
THAT'S ALL I FEEL LIKE SAYING.
