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.

Last Sketches from my Sketchbook

;A; My sketchbook is full. WAAAAAAH. ;A;A;A; That's upsetting; one sketchbook usually last me a year. I got this one in like... I don't know when. But it was less than 12 months ago. D,: The cover said there were 160 pages, but there were only 80... So I guess it meant 160 front-and-back. I don't draw on the back of the pages because the pencil marks would smudge. :I

Anyways, here are the last things I sketched yesterday and today.

External Image
WOAH! It's fan art. xD; I hardly draw fan art anymore, just because I don't. :/ It's hard for me to draw existing characters, for some reason. xD
I've been playing The Ledgend Of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure lately. :d It's fun. But the reason I was inspired to draw this is because I went to Borders yesterday and found a volume of the LoZ: Four Swords manga! xD It was the second (and last) volume... but I got it anyways. It was cute. ;3; Buhuhuh.
Shadow Link almost didn't fit on this page. :o But I somehow got him in there...

I don't know if you've heard or not, but Borders is going out of business. ;A; If you don't know what Borders is (idk if they have Borders outside the coutry), it's a book store where I usually buy all my manga. They have a bigger selection than other book stores I go to.

Since I haven't actually drawn a picture of her yet, you guys probably don't recognize this character. She appeared in the footnotes of this picture, though.
So yeah. The girl calls herself Gliding Eagle, and is friends with Kor Schollen. She's kind of a strange girl. Also kind of a hippie. But I'll talk more about her some other time.
I wanted to draw something really colorful. xD; Idk how to draw pop art or whatever, though... this was my attempt. ;3; I'll probably use my markers to color it.

The words in the bubble above Kor's head mean "what is going on?" in my imaginary language.
He's confused by all the colors. :0
Even though it's black and white right now....

THANKS FOR VIEWING AND READING!!! ;3;
I talk too much. I KNOW IT'S WRONG, IT'S A PROBLEM! I'M FEELING, IF YOU'RE GOOONE! MAYBE IT'S TIME TO COME HOME!

Style of Speech: When he does talk, he’ll sometimes talk in a roundabout sort of way as to avoid the actual question; he's also French, so imagine he speaks in a French accent. xD
Personality: Unbelievably boring, quiet, stoic-ish (MAYBE HE'S VULCAN? no.) (I say stoic-ish rather than straight-up stoic because he's not completely unimotional or indifferent to emotions, his normal mode is just... seemingly bored. xD;)

TB is, obviously, Tomato’s Boyfriend. He’s a self-taught photographer and hopes to be a professional photographer some day. However, because he’s never had any formal photography training, his career isn’t going too well. He currently has no real job except for selling photos at random and sometimes modeling with Tomato. He sometimes models with Tomato because photographers who are supposed to be photographing Tomato will occasionally ask TB to come in the picture as well. Why this happens is a mystery.
TB really wants to go to college.
Besides photography, TB enjoys going to the museum because it’s quiet, calming, and has art.

TB is a very quiet guy. This is partially because French is his first language, and he doesn’t like speaking English often. Usually he says the minimal amount of words needed for a conversation, but if caught on a good day, he’ll talk in a long and circuitous manner as to annoy the listener for his own enjoyment.
He usually does this to Stefan.
But he’s actually not a bad guy. He’s the kind of guy who’ll listen to all your problems instead of voicing his own opinion on the matter.
He doesn’t like Stefan, though. xD He knows Stefan’s got a crush on Tomato, so he tries to keep them as far apart as possible. Which is kind of difficult since Stefan is Tomato’s manager…
Oh yeah, TB will also occasionally slip some French into his speech.

TB has a tendency to look very… bored. He claims it’s a bad habit. As a result, people usually get the impression that TB is kind of aloof and cold. He’s actually just bad at showing emotions. His bored-ness is also shown in his clothes, which usually consists of a plain colored tee and jeans. He just doesn’t like putting effort into how he looks because he thinks it’s a little weird. (That’s another reason why Stefan hates him. :D) BUT HE’S A NICE GUY! REALLY! Tomato often brags about how romantic TB is when they’re out together.
OH, BUT HE HATES WHEN GUYS HIT ON TOMATO. Like seriously. He goes into “I’MGONNAKILLYOUJERK” mode.
Such anger is usually directed toward Stefan.

Besides Tomato, Dean is TB’s best friend. How this really happened is kind of a mystery… I guess it’s because out of all the cast, the only person willing to listen to Dean is TB. Because TB is French, Dean mistakenly calls TB “Jacques”. This is not TB’s name, but he lets Dean call him that anyways. (I guess it’s more comfortable for Dean to call TB a real name instead of… well… TB or Tomato’s boyfriend.) TB often listens to Dean talk; Dean usually talks about Leah, the girl he likes, and Mick, Leah’s boyfriend. TB is basically the only character that Dean has real dialogue with.

Lastly, TB has a fear of GETTING HIS HAIR CUT! 8D By other people, at least. His reasoning is that sharp pointy object + near his neck + in the hands of a stranger = DANGEROUS. So he cuts and dyes his own hair.

AND THAT’S THAT.

Mini Comic Sketch

I'm drawing a 2 page comic of Stefan and Gabe. :D I've actually been wanting to make a comic-type thing with the OFAV characters since I don't normally get to do this. (OFAV is all 4-panel comics.)
So yup. Here's the sketch:

External Image
External Image

HAHA. So corny. xD; But that's the way I am. :M
I really like the first two panels on the first page. :,D But the 5th and 6th panels on that page...
Maybe I'll ink this one day. When I have the patience...

Tegakie Attempt

So I decided to give Tegakie a try again. And here was the outcome:

External Image

I used the weird technique of coloring before lining. :0 It was interesting. And by interesting, I mean AUGH. But that's okay. I'm learning. And I'll keep practicing. I'LL GET THE HANG OF TEGAKIE ONE DAY...
To you Tegakie masters out there: HOW DO YOU DO IT?! ;A;A;

Please excuse the lack of ears. :D;

Sketch: Alcott

For now, he sits on nothing. But later... he sits in a chair...

DRAMATIC! not really.

Yeah. This is gonna be for the Gimme A Lolita! challenge. :> I've been wanting to draw Alcott for a while, so the challenge is a good way to get me motivated. xD The outfit Alcott's wearing here is basically his outfit in Dreams, just without the jacket over top. I actually really like his undershirt, but I hardly get the chance to draw it since Alcott usually wears his jacket... so I was glad I finally got to draw him without his jacket. :D Also, I decided that the ribbon used to fasten his hat to his head was becoming a bit of a hassle to draw, so.... I got rid of it. xD I think when I first uploaded a pic of him, chibi-anna-chan suggested to have the hat fastened with clips or something... so just imagine there are clips on the underside of the hat that keep it in place. :D Oh yeah, I also finally looked up some refrences for shoes. (I'm lazy when it comes to looking up refrences...) I was going to use regular dress shoes... but when I searched "victorian style shoes men" on google, these popped up. I thought they looked cool, so I used them.
...
This is getting oddly long. It's a good thing I'm ranting about this now instead of in the footnotes of the submitted picture. xD;;;

One last thing: I'm thinking of doing this digitally. :o I (legally!) re-downloaded SAI to a different computer since the computer that used to have SAI on it crashed... and my dad hasn't fixed it yet. xD I'm going to try working diligently on this picture, but the line art is going to be a huge pain. ;A; I can just feel it....
