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.
The link leads to the fan comic in my portfolio. If there isn't a link, there isn't a comic yet.

Also, if you want to find posts that feature a specific character, type in the URL http://theotaku.com/worlds/variousinformation/tags/[character name]. For example, http://theotaku.com/worlds/variousinformation/tags/dare will bring you to posts about Dare. :)
Enjoy Your Stay at Various Planning!
I've kind of just been posting these things weekly, haven't I? :M;;; ANYWAY, here's some stuff I've drawn.
Aw yeah, stupid 80's basketball shorts. >:V JUST SO YOU KNOW... I really like drawing Noland in shorts. Idk, I just like drawing sports shorts in general 8D;; Noland in particular is pretty fun. His legs are super inconsistent, though...
He'd never actually wear something like this, btw. Aha. -u-
GAH, UNDERWEAR....!! I've been needing to make a body reference for these guys, because I'm always so inconsistent when I draw them. Gabe came out kind of weird, though... This random thing seems to be a good Gabe reference for me, for some reason. Stefan's probably the easiest one for me to draw, though... The only thing difficult for me to draw about him is sometimes his face shape, and his hair when he's facing the right. (/weirdly specific)
HEE HAW HAW. I was in a really SteGabe mood last week. But then I remembered that drawing two people interacting is pretty difficult.... This was the best I could do, haha. xD
Also, Stefan's not wearing SUNGLASSES...??? I'm pretty used to seeing him without sunglasses, but I don't post pictures of him without them that often.
Some random Noland drawing I was working on. I wanted to practice coloring with ~*~crayzay colors!~*~ And by crazy, I mean blues and purples. I probably won't finish this, though... I don't really like how the shape of his hair and things came out.
Nawland and Proo. :U I felt like drawing cutesy stuff, aha... PRUE NEEDS SOME NEW OUTFITS, YO. Maybe I'll draw some for her eventually.
I've been getting used to drawing Noland's hair when he's facing the right... but it's kind of affecting how I draw his hair when he's facing the left, which I'm having some difficulty with. WHY HAIR, WHY...
Also, my dad has a salmon colored shirt, which I remembered when I colored this. Hence Noland's salmon colored shirt.
Donny boyyyyy. :V I wanted to draw Donnel from Fire Emblem: Awakening. -u-b This dude is gr8, in my opinion. I'm actually making a Donny cosplay for my little sister, for ~*~OTAKON!~*~ Which is next week, woah. o________o I still need to finish my cosplay. I'm going as Kjelle, by the way. ANYONE ELSE GOING TO OTAKON, BTW...? WE COULD TOTES MEET UP AND SAY YO YO MY MOJO JO JO...
I made an icon for my sister's new blog.
WHICH YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT, WOW!
It's about video games and such, so if you like video games, you might be interested. ;D There's only a couple posts so far, but YEAH. My sister. Cool cat. Wow. Awesome. Look at her go.
I'll make another post about this sometime, but yeah. THERE'S THAT. *u*
AND YEP, that's all I've got for now. :^D HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY! I totally thought it was Saturday, aha;;;
I've been sketching a lot in my sketchbook, because I'm out of practice. I'm getting back into it, though, and even started working on some comic I started in March again! *3* I want to redo those pages, though.
I also need to learn how to do backgrounds............................
Anyway, here's some stuff. Yeah.
I've actually since finished that first page, but I'm too lazy to take a different picture of it. It doesn't actually say this in the comic, but the reason Gabe's initially being kind of cold to Noland is 'cause Stefan told him at some point in time that Stefan's ex-boyfriend cheated on him, so Gabe's kind of expecting Noland to be a jerk. :V Not that anyone would get that;;; I was originally going to have Gabe think to himself on the top page about that, but I thought it'd be weird if all of a sudden the point of view switched to Gabe... There's supposed to be several pages before this all from Noland's point of view.
ANYWAY... I like how these pages came out... they're cleaner than how I normally do comics, haha. xD; I wrote the dialogue and general panel plan out before hand, which made these pretty easy to draw. Still working on getting better at dialogue and paneling, though.
I've been drawing a lot of Noland because his hair had been giving me trouble. I'm feeling better about it, now... ;u; Usually I can't stand doing his hair from this angle, but it's getting a bit easier. xD
I also just wanted to draw a cute-blushing-pajama Noland.
This obviously isn't traditional, but Stefan is so hilarious for me to draw. I feel like I don't draw enough overconfident Stefan, but maybe I do. :V
SOMETIMES I WANT TO DO CRAZY THINGS WITH STEFAN'S SUITS, but then I remember he's Mr. Mature Stefan who supposedly doesn't want to look flashy. (YOU SUNGLASSES-WEARING LIAR--) I think a black pinstripe suit is normal enough, right...
AND... yeah. Have a nice Tuesday, I guess! 8D
Some stuff from the past week. :V
Stefans! I mainly just wanted to draw Stefan in a vest, but then I had to draw those crazy shorts on him. HEH... I actually really want a vest like that, but idk where they sell them. .m.
On another note, I think I'm finally used to drawing Stefan's torso in a not suit! Usually when I draw him in casual clothes or just a t-shirt, he comes out either looking too skinny, or with huge shoulders. Usually when he wears casual clothes, though, he'll either wear long sleeves or a jacket.
I was shopping for golf clothing with my mom last weekend, which made me realize...
Noland would be so fun to draw in golf clothing...
I actually came up with a short-ish comic with Noland and Prue and the rest of the English department related to this, but idk if I'll ever draw it. I recently realized (as in on Friday) that I'm really out of practice as far as drawing on paper goes. And that Noland's hair makes no sense.
Some sketches I did at like 5 AM one morning, because I couldn't sleep. :V It took like half an hour, in all. I was listening to songs, so I spent like one song on each sketch. I'M SO MAD THAT SKETCHING IS SO MUCH EASIER FOR ME TO DO ON SAI, RIGHT NOW... """orz
I've been re-watching Tiger and Bunny, and Barnaby is gr8. :V So yeah.
Also, Kotetsu is impossible to draw. That, and two eyes. Gah.
I tried something different with the coloring, but I probably won't do it again. xD; WHATEVZ.
I found this while cleaning the kitchen table. This is from like, senior year. A PROBABLE SCENARIO, STILL TO THIS DAY...
In other news, the table is a mess yet again. WHY.
Since I realized how impossible it is for me to draw Noland's hair unless I'm doodling, I thought I'd try and practice. I also wanted to have a colored pencil drawing of Noland with his right eye color, since he hilariously has brown eyes in that one picture... so yeah.
ALRIGHT, so there's that. Thanks for viewing!!
Here's some stuff I haven't posted yet from the past couple weeks. :V
Ned and Jack doodlie-doo. I'm surprised that I really like Jack. Usually I gravitate toward hyperactive idiot characters like Ned, but I think I have more fun drawing Jack. *3* Also, Ned's too tall here. I forget how tall he's supposed to be... like 6'1? Jack's 5'11. Idk.
I was feeling bad for not drawing Stefan and Gabe one day, so I drew this. I draw Gabe in tank tops too often, these days... I'm not as used to seeing him in a t-shirt. xD;
Painting practice on SAI. Idk how this even managed to come out decent, because usually I mess up paintings so bad... xD THE LUCK WAS WITH ME, I SUPPOSE. I didn't feel like drawing Noland's other eye, though, so I just eyepatched it up. :V
More Ned and Jack. Ned looks really scary in the top right pic, sorry. orz
Jack's redheaded football friend, Dmitri. He's a total jerk who can't think for himself, but he's actually a really fun character to draw. :V He'll be appearing in comics from time to time, usually to grump around and be angry at Ned. Yeah.
Here's some random little dialogue. .3. I keep seeing Jack as some little human sitting in a tiny chair, instead of being in the background... .u.;;;
I was staying at my aunt's house about a week and a half ago, and she asked me to draw something on her chalkboard. :V So I drew Noland... aha. xD; CHALK IS SO HARD TO WORK WITH, THOUGH... I couldn't get the skin to have a nice even layer of color. It took me like 4 tries. orz
I did some random sketch of Gabe yesterday, and I actually kinda liked how it came out. SO I GUESS I'LL INK AND COLOR IT...? I know I upload a whole ton of grinning Gabe, but... EH... It's his signature look, okay...! ;u;
And uh... yeah, that's all for now. I have some doodles from the beach that I forgot to scan last week, so I'll try to upload those sometime soon. ;o
Idk why the *u* face has been my smiley of choice, lately, but I have indeed been using it a lot in my posts and things. It just kind of happened...;;; ~*~STARS IN MY EYES~*~
I'm really behind in posting my tumblr doodles to theO, but I will post them all!! (Sorry to those of you who follow my tumblr and have already seen them;;; I do this not just so the people not following my tumblr see my sketches, but also so I can add longer footnotes/commentary on my sketches. BECAUSE. I LOVE TALKING ABOUT MY OCS;;;)
For now, have some Noland sketches from this past school year, and a new character that's part of the Nerdy and Jock crew.
I wrote that Noland doesn't like many sweets, but I think it actually goes like this: He tells people he doesn't care much for sweets, but if offered a dessert, he'll always eat it. *¬*
Stefan honestly does dislike sweets, though. I LOVE SWEETS, SO IDK HOW THIS IS EVEN POSSIBLE, BUT...
My mom also dislikes sweets. I've mentioned before, but I use my mom as reference for a lot of Stefan things... >3>;;;
If I ever get around to doing anything with Teach Me Something Good, there's this one scene or series of scenes or something where Chrys invites Noland to an amusement park and stuff goes down there. I'd really like working on Teach Me Something Good because I think it'd actually be a pretty interesting story/comic/idk what... but yeah, I just don't really feel like I can take the time to draw/write it, yet.
Some random Noland. I was trying to get a handle on his body type. I STILL STRUGGLE SO HARD, BRO... ""orz Consistency is not my strong point. :D;
This was supposed to be like some chapter cover illustration, or something. Maybe I just wanted to draw Noland in a bowtie. I. Don't. Know.... >3>;
I've briefly mentioned the scene where Noland gets asked on a date by a fellow teacher. That fellow teacher is, indeed, Prue. :V This is another scene thing that I'd like to draw/write, if I wasn't hilariously lazy. -u-b
Another chapter cover illustration thing. This pic is also kind of spoilers that I haven't mentioned, yet. I don't want to reveal to much about this, because the ending-ish part of Teach Me Something Good can come off as very "I wanted this to be unnecessarily dramatic hoo hoo look at this story"...;;; I've considered taking out this part so many times... and I still might, idk yet. "orz
(Btw, Teach Me Something Good ends around the time that Chrystal graduates, but Noland and Prue's story continues for years after TMSG.)
The title-word-stuff comes from this band from the 50's called Nolan Strong and the Diablos. :^D I only know about them because I googled Noland Strong this one time...
Also spoilers of the same nature as the previous pic, but yeah. I'mma just leave this here... :V;;;
LASTLY, here's a pic of the new character: Ned's best friend, Charlotte! 8D;
And I'm too lazy to come up with new commentary on this, so I'mma copy and paste this up, yo. >:V
So, uh. Ned has a best friend, and this is her. I feel like I haven’t designed a character like this since 2009, or something. xD MULTIPLE BELTS. CRAZY PANTS. LOTS OF BRACELETS. HAIR OVER THE EYE!!!!
Anyway, yeah. This is Ned’s best friend since 6th grade, and her name’s Charlotte Han. She’s some sort of voice of reason to Ned’s crazy hyper fool thing. Maybe.
I’m so bad at “scene” fashion, but I kind of think it’s pretty cool looking. Tacky, for sure, but SOMETIMES, YOU JUST DIG THE TACKY.
THAT'S ALL FOR NOW! Thanks for viewing, as always~~~ ;3;
