Planning for stories and stuff.
note: this intro hasn't been thoroughly updated in a couple years
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 meant to post some of these a couple weeks ago, but couldn't because of con stuff. xD; But whatevz! Here's some drawings.
I WAS GONNA POST THIS TO MY PORTFOLIO...!!!! But then I didn't, and here we are. THIS IS KIND OF LATE, BUT I'M SO GLAD TO SEE ROY BACK IN SUPER SMASHHHH!!!!!! ;U;/ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ It's been too long, my friend. His new outfit is really cool. *u*b
except for the bell-bottoms but HWATEVA
So yeah. Have some Roy to celebrate his return to the Smash Bros universe. :,DDD
Oh yeah, have some Little Mac too, 'cause I guess he's cool or something. -u-
I did this Noland drawing around the same time I did those pose practices in the previous post. :U I didn't use a ref for this, though, just kinda winged it. I like drawing Noland's legs when they're bent. :U
I just wanted to draw a cute Noland.
EVEN MORE NOLAND! Noland likes getting affection (as most people do, I guess). He's kind of lazy when giving affection, he'd rather not do anything. (?)
Someone on Tumblr wanted me to draw Kotetsu from Tiger and Bunny for the emoji challenge. :^D This was emoji b3.
I kinda miss drawing Kotetsu! Maybe I can draw him and Barnaby better, if I try again... :V HM.
Anoter one for the emoji challenge! This was for WyvernWings, actually, of their character Pumpkin Chai with my O. J. :^D This time I put the emojis on the pic itself, so there you go.
Random Gabie-Boo I drew to get away from working on cosplay stuff last week. orz
Drew some Steven Universe fan art, 'cause why the heck not. I've only seen like 5 episodes of this show, so I wouldn't really call myself a fan;;; But it's not a bad show. ;m I wanted to draw Jasper because I like drawing muscles, even though I have no idea what I'm doing.
Idk, I thought it'd be interesting to compare Noland and Stefan's head shapes, since they're the most drastically different from one another. :^D STEFAN IS SUCH A POINTY INDIVIDUAL!
Okay, that's all I've got. THANKS FOR THE VIEWAGE, MY FRIENDAGE. (????)
This wasn't going to be a sequel to this post (because honestly, I forgot about it), but my computer told me I already had something titled "Pose Practice." So I guess this is Pose Practice part TWO.
I've been doing GaiaOnline freebies for people where they send me a reference pic, and I draw their chara/avi in their underwear/bathing suit using that pose. (I figured drawing people without a lot of clothing would be better for me to practice the pose and body.) It's been pretty fun! I wanted to do this 'cause I thought it'd help me get more comfortable with different poses. :V I know life drawings are better for this, but WHATEVER, I'MMA JUST USE PHOTO REFS FOR NOW.
Anyway, here's the ones I've done so far:
(for .~[Misty.Muffin]~., ref used)
I felt like the arms were good practice for this one, since I don't draw arms in that position very often. :V I feel like the face angle in a lot of these, though, was the more difficult thing for me to do, ahah;;
(for MomoShino, ref used)
BACKS. backs are weird.
(for Syrionia, ref used)
THIS ONE! I really like how it came out, for some reason. I think I just like how the head looks, 'cause I hardly ever draw heads tilted that much. (?? idk) It was a fun pose, haha. :D
(for Lea_Suki, ref used)
Eh. Wasn't crazy about this one.
(for Ranma-kun, ref used
IDK WHY THE PERSPECTIVE ON THIS WAS SO HARD, THERE WAS BARELY ANY AT ALL...!!! Maybe I just don't draw people lying down often enough, hahaha.
(for maikaymon, ref used
I thought this pose was cute, haha. :^D
(for Trust Your Story, ref used)
The person who requested this sent me a pic of the undergarments (?) they wanted drawn on their character, but I don't have the link anymore;;; JEWELS EVERYWHERE!
(for Calen Arkadys, ref used)
PERSPECTIVE STRIKES AGAIN!!!! I kind of cheated and used the warp tool on the image, after I did all I could on my own. orz I REALLY NEED TO PRACTICE PERSPECTIVE.
(for Coitus Interuptus, ref used)
Hope this one isn't too steamy for theO, whoop;;; IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE CUTE, NOT SEXY, IMO... I like how it came out, though. :^D
(for phiphty, ref used)
Last one! This one was kind of weird 'cause the dude in the ref was wearing so much clothing, I felt like I had to kind of make up stuff;;; (HORRIBLE) I like how most of it looks, except the leg on the right. BUT OTHER THAN THAT! NICE.
So yeah! There's those.
By the way, if you want to request anything like this, you can, too! :V Just send me a pm or comment here with
- the character you want drawn,
- the pose reference, and
- ref of underwear/bathing suit you want your character to be wearing (optional)
So yeah! There's that. Not sure how quickly I'll get them done since I'm trying to do cosplay stuff for the next two weeks. xD;
Anyway, thanks for viewing!
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;
