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!
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!
I never know what to title these, waaahhhh. orz Anyway, here's some stuff from idk when. xD;
Some things of O. J.
O. J. is my homeboy, I am always up for drawing him. :^D
I painted some flowers for Mother's Day. I used a number of refs, but idk where they all are. I searched stuff like "rose stock image" and "tulips" on google, so yeah.
Flowers are flowery. I feel like I've gotten used to drawing roses, but originally I had some marigolds in the top left... but they were hilarious blobs, so I erased them. 8D;;;
Idk if any of you remember my Fire Emblem OC, Wybert, but HERE HE IS AGAIN! 8D He's pretty easy to draw when I'm doodling or doing chibis, but I can never get him right when I'm trying to be detailed. Hence this chibi, here....
Moody Gabe, I guess...? Idk, I was just playing around with SAI.
Fire.Freak reminded me of my genderbent design for Jo, so I thought I'd try and redraw him. xD; idk what else to say about this. 8);;
AND UH. Yep. -u-b THANKS FOR VIEWING!
Hey guys, thanks for the birthday messages on my birthday!!! ;u;/ ♥ Twas very sweet, dohoho.
Anyway, HERE'S MORE STUFF. WHOOP.
I wasn't going to post this because... shirtless Gabe... and butt... but you know, whatever. If it's bothering anyone, I'll take it down.
Anyway, I wanted to practice drawing Shirtless Dudes because idk, I guess that's what I do now. orz I JUST WANT TO PRACTICE DRAWING MUSCLES...!!! I see these people draw dudes with their muscles and they're just SO GOOD. I DON'T WANT TO DRAW GABE'S MUSCLES ALL WEIRD AND BLOCKY ANYMORE, I WANT TO BE GOOD AT DRAWING MUSCLES WAAHAHHEHGH. ;-; But no, it's just been bothering me when I look at old pictures of Gabe, and how I'd draw his muscles... Being angular is okay for Stefan and others, but I feel like Gabe's arms and stuff are supposed to have more round lines than angled. :T
Anyway. I used an abercrombie photo as my ref. Abercrombie photos are my secret to getting shirtless dude refs without actually searching anything sketchy. 8D;;;
I really weirdly like how I drew Stefan's calf in the top sketch. :^D
This outfit looked cooler in my head. -u-; But yeah, trying to draw Jo for the first time in forever. I'm pretty set on having her have short hair, since Gabe has pretty long hair. (??? Doesn't make sense;;;) For her hair, I'm thinking of having it have this sort of spiral shape to it. :V Idk, I'll work on it.
Also, I've never seriously drawn arms in this pose before, apparently. The hands were kind of difficult, aha;;
A smiling Gabe. :^D I'M STILL NOT OVER THE FACT THAT I CAN DRAW GABE FAIRLY COMFORTABLY....
Some Stefans. Stefan is so pointy. ...Idk what else to say about this, aha;;
Killua and Gon from Hunter x Hunter. I've been watching HxH since last semester, but I'm still not done. orz JUST... 50-ISH MORE EPISODES...? Weehhh....
Anyway, Killua and Gon are such cutie best friends!! ;-; So I drew them. I was thinking of making this into a mini print, but maybe... I'll make it a full-sized print, too....???? Idk, I'll just do both, aha. xD;
Older Gon, because IDK. Gon is like 12/13/14 in HxH, so I tried to draw him 16 or 17-ish. :^D I didn't change his outfit because I thought his shorts would still be cool. I just like when people wear shorts, okay. -u-b
LIKE I SAID... I LIKE SHORTS. THEY'RE COMFY AND EASY TO WEAR. Actually, I hate wearing shorts. BUT. Yeah. Noland in stupid swim trunks. 8D
I wanted to draw some Noland and Prue fluffy stuff. :^D Though I still don't really know what I'm doing with Prue. Waaaah, Prue, just reveal your secrets to meeee...!!!
Noland has gotten so cutesy over the years, though, idk what's happening. xD;;; I just like drawing this cute fluffy dude... :M;;
So yep. Gotta go work on stuff for finals, now. ALMOST SUMMER TIME, GUYS...!!! *U*/
Kind of not related, but I've started to go back and replace the images that aren't working. There's a lot of them, so I haven't gotten very far at all, haha;;;; BUT UH, can someone tell me if there are even images that aren't showing up, for them? I wonder if it's just my computer that doesn't want to load the images. The images start disappearing around page 4.
ANYWAY, sup guys. I've been feeling kind of meh about sketching digitally, lately, so I've started using my sketchbook again. :V DRAWING ON PAPER IS SO NICE, BUT IT'S JUST... SO SMALL, AND I DON'T HAVE ROOM ON MY DESK FOR A LARGE SKETCHBOOK... I like that I can zoom in and out digitally and undo and stuff, but I just like the way sketchbooks feel. :V Anyway, have a couple sketches.
Hey yo, it's Gabe.
It's super weird for me to actually like drawing Gabe's hair. xD I FEEL LIKE... I MORE OR LESS UNDERSTAND WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DOING NOW...! It's still a ridiculous hairstyle, but you know. At least I get it. I've been doing some weird stuff with his eyebrows lately, though. I just keep drawing thicker eyebrows on everyone, soon enough no one will have foreheads--it'll just be eyebrows. (?????)
I kind of want to ink and color this for fun, but I'm really uncertain about my traditional inking capabilities. xD Haven't inked in forever, yo...;;; BUT IDK, MAYBE I'LL GIVE IT A SHOT!
Weird quality, sorry. This is Kasey, if you can't tell. I wanted to draw her in that outfit I made for her, again. I'm thinking I'll just scan this and use the cleaned up sketch as the line art, and just color it. It came out pretty good for those Secret Santa drawings, hopefully it'll look good with this! :V
This sort of float-sitting pose is like the easiest thing for me to draw. Idk why drawing people standing is so hard! ;u;/ It's partially because my sketchbook is kind of too small for me to comfortably draw people standing, but I think it's also just that I have a hard time conceptualizing how people balance their weight standing up... So yeah, just gonna stick to float sitting for now.
This is all I've got, wooo. WOW, SUCH A SHORT POST! I feel like that never happens anymore, haha. Thanks for viewing!
