Planning for stories and stuff.
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.

Enjoy Your Stay at Various Planning!
GREETINGS FROM THE BEACH.
I'm a the beach. Anyway, here's some drawings. :^D
STEF. Makes gr8 faces. Such a cool grump friend. (??)
I've been trying to find ways to make digital drawing more fun and comfortable for me. >:V For this one, I was using the brush tool with the stabilizer on zero... which was fun, but looks weird on a large scale. :T BUT OH WELL.
Aha, idk what this is. I just wanted to draw Stefan and Gabe being ~*~cool~*~ in front of each other. Stefan is horrible at keeping his composure. What a loser. :^Y
(I just feel like picking on Stefan today, aha;;)
Extremely sad looking Noland...! Noland's the easiest to draw looking upset. I guess he cries more easily, compared to a lot of my other characters.
I got some new brush settings from here to see if it'd make drawing more comfortable. It's actually a really fun brush to use! >:^V Probably gonna use it a bit.
Also, hey! It's Tim! I was thinking about revamping A Life Like This, but I'm still not really sure how much I want to change the plot and characters. This was an idea for Tim to be a less composed character. :V? Idk, I'm just trying to figure how his relationship with his mom would/could/should affect his personality... STILL KINDA FAR FROM FIGURING OUT WHAT I WANT TO DO, AHA;; I'm thinking of making a post later of all the potential changes and things I could make to the story, sometime.
Thinking about Tim made me think about Dare, too. WAUGH I MISS YOU, MY DARE FRIEND... Dare's still my cool dude.
"He looks like Killua and Gon combined."
Still not quite in my Dare groove. :V Dare's hair is getting so big. I think I need to tone it down... eventually.
Just messing around with lineless coloring. COLORING WITHOUT LINES IS NOT THE LIFESTYLE FOR ME;;;
I just like how pointy Stefan's face is.
Flustered Gabe is my fav. :Y
There was going to be more to this, but then I remembered how small my drawable-pose inventory is;;; I KEEP SAYING THIS, BUT I GOTTA JUST PRACTICE DRAWING POSES SOMETIME. >:V
...So instead of practicing poses, I practice a face. Sometimes my faces get a little wonky, so I wanted to draw with a ref to get myself a little more grounded. My grand ref is Zac Efron.
And there we go. Idk how interesting they'll be for you, but I wanna make some text-y posts about characters and stuff sometime soon. >:V I'll try to add drawings to make it more interesting, but idk. Haha. HOPEFULLY I'LL GET AROUND TO THAT, SOON!
ALSO, THANKS FOR VIEWING, AS USUALLLL!!! :^D ♥
MAN. I feel like I need to post a more character/story-planning type of post to break up all these sketch/etc dumps. Maybe later this week. FOR NOW, HAVE SOME MISCELLANEOUS DRAWINGS.
I hadn't drawn with my tablet in a while, and this was the first thing I drew. ??? Idk, pointless Noland.
I finished the line art for that one sketch!! WOW. Lining wasn't nearly as hard as I expected to be, actually. Haha. NOW I JUST GOTTA COLOR...!!!!!! Idk when I'm gonna get the chance to really sit down and color this, though, since I'm trying to work on cosplay stuff for the next couple weeks. -u-/
WAUGH, SORRY FOR THE SWEARING... I usually try to keep stuff pretty PG rated for theO, but. Eh. Too lazy to censor. orz It's actually lyrics to I'm The Best by Nicki Minaj, because it's a total O. J. song imo. :^D
Anyway, since I've been using O. J. in the TWEWY role play on theO, I thought I'd draw him to help me get in the O. J. Zone. (?) Idk, chat-based role plays are harder than I expected...!!! It's hard to come up with stuff to say on the spot, haha.
More Noland! This is kind of irrelevant, but I've been wanting to try out some new brushes for SAI. I'm mentioning this because I used a small brush for this drawing, which is something I do every so often to try to break up the monotony of digital drawing. orz If anyone knows of any good SAI brush settings, let me know...!!! *u*;;
Prue's head is so hard for me to draw!!!! I think I'm getting to the point where I feel like I can get better at drawing her if I draw her more, though. (? Weird sentence.) We're getting there, Prue. We're getting there.
Also, I can't decide if I want to draw her with lipstick more often, or not.
Idk if you remember Charlotte since I draw the Nerdy and Jock kids so sparsely, but here she is. The gr8 thing about her is that I can draw all the kool klothez I liked back in 8th and 9th grade. 8^D
Here's a little thing I drew for same-sex marriage legalization in the US. :^D I was going to post it to my portfolio, but deemed it too sloppy;;; But yeah.
I drew Tomato and Gabe because they'd probably be the most likely to celebrate. I can't really see Stefan celebrating it up because he's a poop, haha. :^D;;; BUT UH, YEP! Sorry Tomato looks freakishly young, here... I haven't drawn him in a long time. orz I NEED TO UPDATE OFAV!
Okay, I have to go eat, so I'm gonna go now. Thanks for viewing!
HEY, YO, I've been kind of absent for no reason. ;3; Sorry about that. orz I haven't been drawing as much as I usually do, because I haven't felt like pulling out my sketchbook or tablet to doodle. WEH. So here's some stuff from a couple weeks ago. ;u;/
I was on a random Noland kick a couple weeks ago, so these first few are just him. Usually I draw him in this puff sweater when I'm cold in the winter, but I guess I was just missing it the other day. xD Idk, haha.
I'm always just practicing Noland's hair... :V WEIRDLY, his hair is practically easier for me to draw when he's facing the left, which is super weird for me 'cause I don't like drawing people facing that way. I really like drawing Noland, though. Maybe the next comic I do will be a Noland chapter kind of thing... *3* I do really want to work on a comic, right now. They're just a pain to plan out. xD; BUT HMMM... Expect that from me eventually, maybe.
Just a little thing with an emotional Noland and a worried Prue. :M
Gabe hairstylezzzz. I was thinking that for a hairstylist, he doesn't really change his hair up too much... I also know nothing about hairstyles, I need to learn. ;0;/ Idk what I was doing on the top right one, since it's not actually one I use for him, aha... :D;;;
POINTLESS FLUFF. I want more Stefan and Gabe drawings, but I'm too lazy to draw more detailed things of them. orz
Okay yep, that's all. Hopefully I'll get off my lazy butt and do some more detailed stuff soon. xD;
HAHA, TITLES... anyway. Here's some drawings.
I was going to submit this to my portfolio thing, but there's so little context that I thought it would be pointless... Idk, this is a part of a little scenario thing where Stefan and Gabe go to an animal shelter because Gabe likes animals. This happens before they're dating, so Stefan is a fool trying to deal with his emotions, ahaha. :^D Maybe I'll make a comic about this sometime, like I did with this. Idk. Not really sure what I want my next Stefan and Gabe comic to be... :U HM.
Some practice drawing Prue. I actually like how she looks here, I just wish she'd look like this ALL THE TIME... PRUE WHYYYAYAYAYUUSDFALKSJF. orz
On another note, I've started figuring out a couple more things about her story, maybe I'll post about it sometime. I'm still super iffy about her personality, though. I just worry about her being too boring, more than anything. ;0;/
I thought it'd be fun to do a full drawing of Prue and Noland. :^D I don't think I have anything of Prue in my fan art section, in fact... I'm working on coloring this, right now. Hope it turns out okay! :m
Drawing Noland with pillows is a great hobby of mine. -u-
Some homemade stickers of these guys that I made for Kasa, that I'm gonna give her later this month. :V The top picture is how they'll look when they're stuck to stuff. They're about three inches tall. I'm pretty happy with how these look, even though I just printed them with my printer at home. *U*b I'm gonna try printing with my Dad's printer today, though, to see if the quality is any better.
I really wanted to draw Gabe, yesterday. I wasn't planning on this being a real serious drawing, but I actually think it came out pretty decent. Might end up finishing it, idk. :V I kind of want to do it traditionally with colored pencils, because I haven't used them in a while... and Gabe doesn't have any particularly difficult colors in his color scheme, so I thought he'd be good to use to get back into the groove of things. :D The only issue will be... inking..........
Something still looks off about this for me, though. I think its Gabe's eyes, they look to young or something. :T But oh well.
...So yeah. HAPPY JUNE, FRIENDS!!! :D Hopefully it'll be summer break soon, for those of you who are still in school!
YO. I feel weird posting so soon, since I already posted to this world this week. xD; But I've been drawing a lot of stuff, so I want to just go ahead and post the stuff. :U So here we go!
This was Little Mac from that one drawing I did in February, that I don't think I'll ever finish. xD;; It was just coming out too meh for me to finish it. "orz BUT OH WELL! Maybe I'll do a different drawing with some SSB4 characters, some time.
But yeah, just messing around with soft shading... This was kind of fun to do, but soft shading just isn't fun/comfortable for me! I say this every time I talk about soft shading, but I think it is just not the lifestyle for me. *3*/;; But oh well.
Noland in PJs. :^D Because that's what you do, when you're me. Draw Noland in PJs. (?)
AHA, okay yeah idk why I'm posting this. But I am.
Keyblademewkasa and I were talking about doing a The World Ends With You cosplay for Anime USA, where she'd be Rhyme and I'd be Beat. But I am a blind and skinny fool, so here is an artistic representation of my cosplay.
Some coloring test I did on the Roy picture. It was too inconsistent for me to feel comfortable doing, so I switched to the coloring I did in the finished picture. xD
A ~*~dramatic~*~ picture of Stefan and Gabe. I was thinking about how I always used to draw Stefan crying, when I was in high school. So that's what I decided to do, here.
I keep drawing the weird dot-eyes that I usually only do in doodles, but in more detailed drawings! >:U Idk how I feel about this. I've kind of always had a weird relationship with eyes, but eh... something about drawing the dot eyes instead of more detailed eyes all the time... idk what to do about it. xD
/idk if that even made sense
I said I would ink this a while ago, so I finally did, haha. Though inking is a pain, traditional inking is, in some way, strangely relaxing. :^D I just don't like to do it too often, because I always mess up and INK! IS NOT ERASABLE!
I guess I'll get around to coloring this, at some point. Haven't seriously done traditional coloring in like a year, though, so idk how that'll go. HA...
Noland chibi! 'Cause I thought it'd be cute. I haven't really posted a lot of them, here, but I've been drawing a lot of chibis for people on gaia and for charm designs. I think I've finally got the hang of them, hahaha. :^D
When I drew this, I kept thinking "NOLAND LOOKS LIKE SUCH A DAD... SO WHY DO I STILL THINK HE'S CUTE.............."
Idk what that says about me.
Anyway, yeah. Here's Noland either grading some papers, or looking over his own writing. Also smoking is not wise, kids, don't do it. ;U
And. That's my post. :D Thanks for viewing!
