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.

Slightly More Diverse Sketch Dump

HEY GUYS, IT'S A SKETCH DUMP THAT'S NOT JUST STEFAN, GABE, AND NOLAND! I mean, it's mostly them. But whatever. *U*;

External Image
I've been bizarrely obsessed with trying to make my characters look more consistent, so did some practice drawing Noland. I still hate inking Noland's hair... I think he came out looking fairly close to how I want him to look in the sketched drawing, but I drew his neck larger than I wanted to, in both of them... RARGH.
it's not a good thing that I'm so fixated on this consistency thing. I'm thinking I should just deal with the fact that the way I draw my characters is going to keep changing. :V;;; I did draw some good Nolands on lined paper the other day, though... Maybe I'll post them sometime this week. :m

External Image
I asked someone to draw Danny for me on Gaia, and they asked me for some of his outfits... So I drew some outfits. :V
I FORGOT THAT DANNY IS FUN THOUGH, GUYS. Danny's and Gabe's interactions are pretty fun to think about, but mostly because Danny's such a 24 year old baby snob. (???) I want to draw him and Jo some more since they are eventually a couple or whatever, but I have trouble drawing Jo... Her clothing style just doesn't come easily to me! ;u; I need to just sit down and have a day where I research clothing styles for Jo.

External Image
I want to have something Stefan and Gabe to put on my wall, so I drew this. :V IDK, THOUGH, I KIND OF WANT TO DO IT DIGITALLY, BUT AT THE SAME TIME... I haven't done something traditionally in so long. I just hate inking traditionally... Mehhhhh. ;m; And messing up a picture traditionally is so much more painful than messing up a picture digitally. PHYSICALLY TEARING OUT THE SHEET OF PAPER AND THROWING IT AWAY... IT'S... IT'S JUST SO HARD...
I'll figure something out for this, eventually.
ALSO, WHOA, STEFAN'S NOT WEARING A SUIT! This is a random note, but when Stefan "dresses up" for dates, he really just dresses down... Drawing Stefan in a not suit used to be really uncomfortable for me, but now I'm pretty used to it. *u* STEFAN'S WARDROBE HAS INCREASED SO MUCH SINCE I FIRST MADE HIM! Gabe's wardrobe, on the other hand.....;;;

External Image
OJ is really fun to draw! I think it's because I like drawing arm muscles, but I also like drawing big butts. (???? WHY WHAT IDK...;;;) I'm still kind of confused about his character, but I think he's turning progressively more and more jerkish... GAH. I wanted him to be a sort of gag character whose arrogance was silly, but now I'm not sure. Idk.
Also, I've decided to make him 19 years old. AWESOME.

External Image
WHOA, WHO'S THIS LADY? This was actually an old-ish concept drawing I did of Noland's mom, but I don't think this is going to be her final design. I think I've talked a little bit about Noland's childhood, right...? Idk. Yeah, I briefly mentioned her here.
I might be talking in really vague sentences, but here's some stuff about Noland's mom, I guess: Noland's mom isn't a bad person, but there are some weird undertones in her relationship with her son that make her appear kind of antagonistic-y. She babies Noland a lot, even when he's in high school and also as an adult. She's been fairly overprotective of him for a lot of his life, and usually had control over the kind of people Noland would associate with. (In general, Noland didn't socialize with people pther than his mom very often.) I think the main reason she "gets away" with keeping Noland on a short leash is because he's so obedient in nature, and because Noland's mom was the person he was closest to, growing up. Or something, idk. So for most of his childhood, his mom's overprotectiveness doesn't really bother him. (Well, it bothers him more and more as he gets older, but whatever I'll talk about that some OTHER TIME!) ...uh, what else to say... She's also very conservative in terms of romance and dating, and feels like she should have a fair amount of say in who Noland does and doesn't date.
...IDK WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT, ANYMORE! If you've read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, she's like a softer version of Billy Bibbit's mom. I FEEL LIKE I KEEP ACCIDENTALLY MAKING WEIRD ANTAGONIST-Y MOM CHARACTERS... Like Tim's mom. Not that I really think about Tim, anymore... STEFAN'S MOM KIND OF, TOO, THOUGH...! Though to a much lesser degree. And both of Stefan's parents are kind of cold, in the first place. Gabe's mom is a nice lady, though. :V ....hm, I think that's all my mom characters...
A weird thing for me to think about Noland's mom is that since she had Noland when she was 19, and Noland was born in 1980, Noland's mom is younger than my dad............................ My dad was born in 1960, by the way. BUT UH. YEAH.

External Image
SO. UH. I WAS THINKING IT WOULD BE FUN TO DRAW LIKE A BOXING/FIGHTING CHARACTER. So I drew Gabe as a fighter dude, because yeah.
I TRIED REALLY HARD TO MAKE HIS ABS MAKE SENSE, THIS TIME!! The arms, on the other hand... I'm making up my own anatomy, I'm sorry. orz I'm also not sure about the perspective on the arm on the left, but I'm just rolling with it. THIS POSE DOESN'T EVEN LOOK THAT COMPLEX, WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO DRAW IT?? ;U;
Gabe's hair looks different every time I draw it. -u-b Idk, I kind of like how it came out, though.

OKAY, NOW THAT I'VE THOROUGHLY DISTRACTED MYSELF FROM MY HOMEWORK... Have a nice week, y'all. :D

Danny and Jo doodle

Late night posting, woo!!! 8D;;
External Image
Danny's bringing the sass. Those lyrics are also wrong, but they're supposed to be from Scream and Shout by that Will I Am guy. Drawing Danny makes me listen to weird pop music... and I still am because I'M IN THE POP ZONE. YOU DID THIS, DANNY.

But wow, I haven't drawn Danny in ages. His hair came out hilariously incorrect. xD; It's fun to draw clothes for him, though. Maybe I'll draw him more often.
I also do like Jo and Danny as a pair. :^D They're fun. NOT THAT YOU'D KNOW; I NEVER DRAW THEM! 8D

Danny thinks he's some sort of hot stud here, but he looks 12...
I swear he's 24...;; HE SHAVES, EVEN!

...yeah, I guess that's it. Sorry for the random post.

Genderbent Danny + Genderbent Jo Concept

MORE POINTLESS DOODLES! 8D Well, this one's actually an idea for this challenge. I wanted to genderbend someone I don't normally draw, so here's genderbent Danny!

External Image
And here's her theme song. (Actually, Danny intentionally acts like a ditz. BUT THE VOICE IS SO FITTING I CAN SEE IT COMING OUT OF FEMALE DANNY'S MOUTH.)

Female Danny (who I guess would still be called Danny) was actually really fun to design! 8D I like how she came out. Danny's always had this sort of "nerd-but-not-really" sort of appeal to him, so I tried to go with that for the design. I thought scene hair would go well with the thick glasses... but scene hair confuses me because I keep seeing it as a mullet. orz

SPEAKING OF HAIR, I've been drawing Danny's hair as brown for a while now. I think I'm going to change it to black, or a sort of ashen color. ...this will only increase his likeness to Christian Siriano...;;;

Idk what sort of differences there are between Male Danny and Female Danny as far as personality goes. Everything feels like it translates over exactly the same. .u. I'LL GIVE IT SOME THOUGHT, I GUESS.

So yeah. There's my post on Danny as Avril Lavigne.

Edit: I did one of Jo, too, because it'd be fun to draw them together. 8D This took like 10 minutes to draw, so SORRY IT'S SO SLOPPY.

This one kind of weirds me out because this just looks like Jo's head on a man's body, to me. He does have different hair and a bigger nose, though...! 8D;

I didn't really know how to translate "stereotypical-looking floozy" into male form, so I just made him look like a stereotypical jerk. (??? HE JUST LOOKS LIKE GABE!) You can't tell from this picture, but Male Jo is wearing the kind of baggy pants that always fall off and reveal BOXERS AGH.

Personality-wise, mostly the same. Probably a smidge more masculine, as Female Danny would be a smidge more feminine. He's still a make-up artist, because WHY NOT.

Also, he is doing the exact same pose as Gabe is in the previous post. Oops.

I ACTUALLY HAVE TO DO MORE HOMEWORK NOW, so there's the end of that. xD;

Gabe and Danny Sketch

My fingers instinctively wanted to type "Gabe and Stef." .______________________.

Anyways, here's a sketch I did just now.
External Image
GABE AND DANNY, WOO! Exciting.

At first, I liked Danny's pose... but now all I can notice is the way his leg vanishes and that he looks like a clapping baby. (??) I've also been having trouble with Danny's bangs recently. I'm trying to make them go back to being the way they used to look instead of looking like Tomato's bangs or something. >3> Not that you would have noticed, because I don't post a lot of Danny. But I doodle him from time to time.

And yep.
I WANT TO BE ABLE TO INK DIGITALLY.
Ahem. HAPPY WEEKEND...?

Yeah, Memes!

I did a meme. FUN. Well, I did two, but I only had to draw for one of them. I'll post them both.

External Image
The only detailed panel is the last one. I'm so sorry. orz Gabe's skin color came out kind of weird here.
MAN, I NEED TO DRAW SOMEONE ELSE.
AAAAAAAAAAAGH.
I have longer footnotes on dA, but I don't feel like copying and pasting them here. xD The link on the pic leads to the meme on dA, if you care about reading footnotes for some reason.

External Image
I've actually only heard the last two from someone. This is more like a lookalike meme to me, than a "fantard" meme. xD;
So yeah. We have Danny >> Christian Siriano, Gabe >> Mark McGrath, Jo >> P!nk, and Kasey >> Nicki Minaj. YAY, CELEBRITIES...;;; Well, Christian Siriano is a designer.
Nicki Minaj looks kind of gyaru........ but maybe it's just the light hair and tan skin. xD;

YEAH!
Also, I don't think I'm going to be able to finish the summertime OFAV picture. ;~; Sorry about that. I'm also moving soon, so I won't be able to use the desktop with SAI on it for a while.

Thanks for reading, as always! :D
