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.

Old Sketches

I doodled a picture of high school-aged Gabe on my math homework, and didn't feel like erasing it because I kind of liked it... ;u; EHE. So I scanned it and now I'm going to erase it. YEAH!

By the way, here it is.

External Image
Woo, angry man! His hand is kind of big, now that I look at it. xD; Floating youthful Gabe... Gabe's hairstyle in high school pretty much looks exactly like Jo's current hairstyle except with Gabe's color scheme. WOO! Idk, I'm having trouble with hairstyles these days. .u.

Also, I found some original concept sketches and other old things of my characters. 8D I figured I'd show them to you all. I already uploaded most of them when I originally drew them, but here's some stuff that I missed. I'VE JUST BEEN GOING DOWN MEMORY LANE LATELY... Sorry for all the "before-after"-themed posts. xD Hope you find this interesting or something! :D

External Image
This is actually a pretty recent pic, and it's also the only decent picture of Jamie that I've drawn. Jamie is Rick's little brother. I haven't talked about him much, but he has his fair share of appearances in A Life Like This compared to the rest of Rick's siblings. xD By the way, he's talking to Tim in this pic. He asked Tim if he likes Rick. So uh.. Spoiler? xDD Idk. BAH. This stuff is so idk. :I
Woo, that basketball looks like a giant lumpy round object and not a basketball... ._________.;

External Image
This isn't the first picture of Tim that I've drawn, but what's monumental about this piece of paper is I figure out an easy way to draw Tim's bangs. 8D If you look at the part in his bangs, the left bang used to flip to the left, but then I started drawing it flipping to the right. FOR SOME REASON, THAT MADE IT SO MUCH EASIER TO DRAW HIM...! Once I could draw him, I started drawing him a lot more. So thanks to that one little change, Tim's now one of my favorite characters of mine. xD AND YOU THOUGHT LITTLE THINGS LIKE THAT DIDN'T MATTER...
Or maybe you never thought that. :I

External Image
This was drawn before the previous doodles. It was another (failed) attempt at trying to figure out how to draw Tim's hair. xD Tim, you gave me so much trouble... but you were worth it. ;u;

External Image
This is the first time I ever drew Damian! He still looks about the same. :D I originally spelled his name "Dameon", but that apparently means "DEMON CHILD"... so I changed it to Damian. 8D;
Damian's actually 20, I think. Yep. Idk why I wrote that beard comment, though.
External Image
NO ONE'S TALKING ABOUT YOUR BEARD I think I've become more tolerant of beards, because of Gabe. xD I used to really not like beards at all. Now I'm kind of indifferent. I like drawing Gabe's beard, even though it's the tiniest beard in the world.
...My dad has a mustache! 8D

Here's Jamal's original design. There's a colored version somewhere in my portfolio, too. :m (Compare with this: [click]) Takara wrote his name on there! 8D Because I didn't want to name him Jamal at first... Haha. I'm used to his name now.

External Image
Lastly, here's what I planned to be the "default" outfits for the OFAV cast. These are also the outfits I used here. The only one that's remained the same is Dean's. xD I hadn't learned how to draw suits until this summer, so Stefan's only changed recently. I draw Kasey, Tomato, and Jo in random things that I feel like drawing. Gabe usually wears that skull shirt or tank top. TB always wears the same outfit of a green t-shirt and rolled-up jeans, which is why I didn't put him on here. :m
Gabe's shirt just makes me laugh in agony and embarassment... orz

And yeah! That's that. 8D I'll try to upload some recent stuff in my next post.

Full Animation for English Class

Well, here's the finished version of the animation from the other day! :m Only the first part is in color, the rest is in black and white... ;u; But whatever. xD

So yeah. This is an animation based off of a chapter in the book Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov.

Warning: My voice is weirdo sounding. And so is my Russian accent. It doesn't even sound like a Russian accent....
Also, this may not make sense if you haven't read the book.

BAM. Yeah. Not the most extravagant thing, but whatever. I did it in 4 days. "orz I got so lazy with the animating in the last scene...

I may finish coloring it one day... my mom wants me to. xD

SO YEAH. THANKS FOR WATCHING THAT THING. :D

Meme and reeeally short animation

BUH. I need to do homework but I don't feel like it. orz I'll just make a quick post and then be productive.

Hey, want to see an animation I made? YEAH YOU DO. IT'S GREAT. Well, it's not great, but it's not horrendous either.

This is for a school project. Or at least, I want it to be... I wanted to animate a scene from the book I read. But this took like an hour, and it's so shoooort.... ;A; IDK. I HOPE I CAN AT LEAST MAKE SOMETHING...
This is Victor Wind from the book Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov. The book was rather BORING... Pretty much no dialogue was in it. ;A;

And here's a music meme I did.
External Image
I'm too lazy to link to the songs. orz If you click it, it goes to my dA which has the links in the footnotes.

OKAY, I REALLY SHOULD DO SCHOOLWORK. BYE NOW! ;U;

Random Stefan Talk

I'm not sure this'll be interesting to you guys, but oh well. xD;

Just now, I've noticed a recent change in Stefan's speech patterns.
I was reading a comic I wrote last year and was kind of PERTURBED by Stefan's dialogue. Well, not perturbed. More like confused. BUT I TOOK THE S.A.T. TODAY, SO... Actually, I hated the vocabulary section. I'M SO BAD WITH VOCAB! ;0;
Anyways, Stefan's dialogue was really weird! o___o In the comic, I mean. Let me list two strangeo-mabobs...

1) HE'S CALLING GABE "GABE"! THIS IS REALLY WEIRD! Stefan never calls him Gabe... well, almost never. Stef almost always calls him "Gabriel", for whatever reason. (In general, he does this with everyone. He calls Jo "Janet", and Danny "Daniel"... No real reason for it, but it's what he does. It's possibly an attempt to distance himself from other people by not using nicknames... or he just likes talking in lots of syllables. |D)
Sometimes Stefan will call Gabe "Gabe", but that's pretty much only when he's exceptionally drunk, or has a lot of words coming out of his mouth making "Gabe" roll off the tongue easier. (The latter isn't really easy to portray in comics. xD) Although Stefan is drunk in that old comic, I don't think I had him intentionally call Gabe by his nickname. Even when he's drunk, Stef is more likely to use the name "Gabriel" over "Gabe".
/a lot of talk about NOTHING.

2) WEIRDO SLANG...! Look at this! "Sucked", "cut the act"... Actually, "cut the act" isn't that bad. I'll let it slide. BUT "SUCKED"...! I can't even imagine him saying that... xD It's not a bad word or anything (because Stefan's not opposed to swearing), it's just... a weird slang term that I can't imagine in his mouth. It's like him saying "that's wicked" or... idk. xD;;

Basically, his speech seems more casual than it is now. I think it miiight be because of this.
THAT'S RIGHT. Learning how to draw suits has made Stefan more up-tight. xD;;; Actually, that's partially why I had never bothered to learn how to draw suits after I designed Stefan... because then I would want to draw ties, and then Stef would look more official, and then he'd become more up-tight! 8D; Haha. He used to be more ostentatious with his gestures. I think it was because he used to look kind of showoff-y for always having his shirt partially unbuttoned. (?)
But maybe it's my imagination. xD I think Stefan's just gradually become more of a prude over time. :M;; But he's fun.

By the way, I wonder if any of you noticed that some time this year I started drawing Stefan's hair differently?
IT'S TRUE!

...okay, so it's not that much of a difference. But it made drawing him a lot easier! 8D; I initially didn't want to change the way i drew his hair (like how I didn't want to learn to draw suits)... mostly because of stubbornness, but also because it kind of makes him look younger or something. I-I DRAW MY CHARACTERS TOO CUTESY... Somehow, separating the bangs from the rest of the hair = cutesy. Idk.

WOW, RANDOM TALK! I'M SURE THAT WAS INTERESTING! 8D But not really.
Um. Yeah, thanks for reading! xD; I wonder if any of you actually find it fun to read me talking to myself about my characters. But I do like comparing them with how they were and how they are now. :D

30 Day Character Meme: Gabe

Over the last month, I've been doing this 30-day character meme with Gabe. :V Now that it's finished, I guess I'll post it here! Why not. It's kind of ridiculously long, and kind of random... but whatever. xD ENLIGHTEN YOURSELF ON THE ...
