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.

I don't have a name for his story, but Jamal is a Kingdom Hearts fan character. I figured I'd mention him because I draw him often enough.
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 doodled a picture of high school-aged Gabe on my math homework, and didn't feel like erasing it because I kind of liked it... ;u; EHE. So I scanned it and now I'm going to erase it. YEAH!
By the way, here it is.
Woo, angry man! His hand is kind of big, now that I look at it. xD; Floating youthful Gabe... Gabe's hairstyle in high school pretty much looks exactly like Jo's current hairstyle except with Gabe's color scheme. WOO! Idk, I'm having trouble with hairstyles these days. .u.
Also, I found some original concept sketches and other old things of my characters. 8D I figured I'd show them to you all. I already uploaded most of them when I originally drew them, but here's some stuff that I missed. I'VE JUST BEEN GOING DOWN MEMORY LANE LATELY... Sorry for all the "before-after"-themed posts. xD Hope you find this interesting or something! :D
This is actually a pretty recent pic, and it's also the only decent picture of Jamie that I've drawn. Jamie is Rick's little brother. I haven't talked about him much, but he has his fair share of appearances in A Life Like This compared to the rest of Rick's siblings. xD By the way, he's talking to Tim in this pic. He asked Tim if he likes Rick. So uh.. Spoiler? xDD Idk. BAH. This stuff is so idk. :I
Woo, that basketball looks like a giant lumpy round object and not a basketball... ._________.;
This isn't the first picture of Tim that I've drawn, but what's monumental about this piece of paper is I figure out an easy way to draw Tim's bangs. 8D If you look at the part in his bangs, the left bang used to flip to the left, but then I started drawing it flipping to the right. FOR SOME REASON, THAT MADE IT SO MUCH EASIER TO DRAW HIM...! Once I could draw him, I started drawing him a lot more. So thanks to that one little change, Tim's now one of my favorite characters of mine. xD AND YOU THOUGHT LITTLE THINGS LIKE THAT DIDN'T MATTER...
Or maybe you never thought that. :I
This was drawn before the previous doodles. It was another (failed) attempt at trying to figure out how to draw Tim's hair. xD Tim, you gave me so much trouble... but you were worth it. ;u;
This is the first time I ever drew Damian! He still looks about the same. :D I originally spelled his name "Dameon", but that apparently means "DEMON CHILD"... so I changed it to Damian. 8D;
Damian's actually 20, I think. Yep. Idk why I wrote that beard comment, though.
NO ONE'S TALKING ABOUT YOUR BEARD I think I've become more tolerant of beards, because of Gabe. xD I used to really not like beards at all. Now I'm kind of indifferent. I like drawing Gabe's beard, even though it's the tiniest beard in the world.
...My dad has a mustache! 8D
Here's Jamal's original design. There's a colored version somewhere in my portfolio, too. :m (Compare with this: [click]) Takara wrote his name on there! 8D Because I didn't want to name him Jamal at first... Haha. I'm used to his name now.
Lastly, here's what I planned to be the "default" outfits for the OFAV cast. These are also the outfits I used here. The only one that's remained the same is Dean's. xD I hadn't learned how to draw suits until this summer, so Stefan's only changed recently. I draw Kasey, Tomato, and Jo in random things that I feel like drawing. Gabe usually wears that skull shirt or tank top. TB always wears the same outfit of a green t-shirt and rolled-up jeans, which is why I didn't put him on here. :m
Gabe's shirt just makes me laugh in agony and embarassment... orz
And yeah! That's that. 8D I'll try to upload some recent stuff in my next post.
I felt the need to post some sketches.
I drew this in May, I think...? Back when I was reading The Great Gatsby, which was making me think about flappers. xD So I drew a flapper. I wore a similar outfit to this one to school for a project. :M
I drew this one during school, too. Basically it's a redo of this, but his head came out too big.
I used to think that boys with Dean's character personality rarely exist, but this guy who sat in front of me in math class reminded me of Dean in awkwardness. So maybe Dean isn't such an unlikely guy to meet. xD /random
Random doodly-sketch-plan-things. xD; The top is a picture idea I have for Stef and Tomato. The bottom is a possible redux of Alcott's outfit. I've always wanted to give him a short jacket, and I think this looks pretty alright. :m Although, I'm always bothered by how boring his pants are...
A sketch of Luli and Alcott that I drew a couple days ago. At first I wasn't really sure of what to draw, and it turned into Alcott and Luli. xD Even though it's their profiles, I quite like this picture... ;3; I wish I drew the Dreams characters more often. The Dreams story is probably my favorite of my fantasy stories... but I just don't have it planned enough to do anything with it, and I'm not the best at drawing fantastical things. xD;
Doodles and a random comic with Stefan and Gabe. YOU KNOW... IT'S JUST EASIEST TO MAKE COMICS WITH THEM, OKAY...? ._. By the way, that lady next to Stef is Gabe's mom. Also, that giant block of text next to Dare is just me talking about how I should practice drawing suits. (I wrote that before this.)
Um. COLORED ZACK, WOAH!
Like I said, it's easiest to make comics with Stefan and Gabe. -u- But somehow, these comics became a "Let's learn some random things about Gabe!" moment. xD;
I don't know how to put the accents on the letters, so the French is accent-less. Sorry, French people.
AND THAT IS ALL. Now you know what I've been doing.
And that is absolutely nothing.
HEY GUYS. I'm trying to do a picture completely on SAI, 'cause I don't think I've done that since that one TB picture. You know. That one where he's by the river. Yeah. xD; ...Oh, no wait. I did that one Franz one. ...Whatever. :M
I've been wanting to do an OFAV group pic again, and also a summer picture... so I combined them. 8D Here's the sketch:
ACK, SHIRTLESS MEN. Akioh doesn't know what she's doing and she should look at references but she refuses to because she's just being silly.
...Yeah. I hope to clean it up in the inking process. WHICH IS GOING TO BE TERRIBLE, BY THE WAY. ;A; 7 PEOPLE AGH... The inking may not be very detailed either. xD; This is going to be a pain to finish... but I've been fairly productive lately so I might be able to get it done before summer ends! :D;;;;
And yeah.. that's what I'm working on. I'm also working on a picture of Damian for this challenge. I just need to color the background. BACKGROUND! I know. It's unfathomable coming from me. Actually, I've uploaded a couple pictures with kind of simplish backgrounds recently... So I think I'm actually accomplishing my new year's resolutions from January a little. xD;
Enough of me babbling. Thanks for viewing, as always. ;D
You're in for some fun today! 8D ...Or some weirdness. I was thinking about some of the old ideas I had for some of my characters, and I decided that I'm going to share some of them with you. xD Haha. This post'll probably be kind of long.
I had considered all of these things at one point in time or another...
1) Tim x Jake
HAHA... this is one of the weirder ideas, now that I look back on it... By the way, yes, that's what Jake looks like.
So I had this idea that Tim's best friend secretly has a crush on Tim, and is super jealous when he's going out with Clair. When Tim breaks up with Clair, Jake somehow gets Tim alone in his room and says "It's about time you broke up with that <b-word>," and (I'm dead serious about this)... he rapes Tim.
LIKE I SAID, one of the weirder ideas. The point was that Jake doing it with Tim was supposed to make Tim bi-curious. I decided that that would be kind of pointless, 'cause Tim didn't really need Jake as an instigator to make him think about his orientation. And then Jake's character became kind of homophobic, as time went by.
2) Tim's Grandparents and Swing Music
This was kind of a random thing. I had this idea that Tim was close to his grandparents, and his grandparents got him addicted to swing music. I decided that wouldn't be plausible because Tim's Mom wouldn't take Tim to her parents, and her parents would be too young to be into swing music anyways. xD;
3) Smoking Danny
This idea is still pending, actually. :o I thought that if Danny smoked, it'd be a good way to contrast with his sugary-girly personality and emphasize that he's actually older than he tries to be. I mean, I draw him like a teenager and he tries to act like a kid, but he is in his 20s.
But I also don't want to do this idea, because I don't like having my characters smoke... ;u; The only one who smokes for real right now is Tim's mom.
4) Flirty Rick/Dare x Rick
I considered this waaaaaaay early when I created Rick. There are still some remnants of flirty Rick floating around in my gallery... As for Dare x Rick, I considered that for a small amount of time. Takara always wanted me to do Dare x Rick, and I do think it's kind of cute, but I just don't think Dare has that kind of attraction to Rick. xD
5) Jo x Kasey
You probably already know this, but I originally created Jo and Kasey to be a couple. I actually think they're pretty cute together (and I'm not even crazy about gl), but Kasey's too straight to be in a relationship with Jo. :m Although, it is canon for Jo to have a crush on Kasey. But by the time the timeline reaches the current time in OFAV she's already given up on Kasey.
6) Dean x Kasey
This was always going to be a little bit of a gag pairing...
I still think it's plausible for Kasey to crush on Dean, but they'd never become a serious pairing because Kasey crushes on any attractive boy she meets.
7) Damian x Rick
I'm pretty sure I originally created Damian to be a love interest for Rick. xD Damian is completely straight, by the way...
8) Rick Gets Drunk, And...
This was a weird scene idea for RB:SI, where Rick gets drunk and starts mackin' on Dare. The scene was cliche, so I decided it's not going to be drawn. Rick's too smart to "accidentally" drink alcohol, anyways. :P
9) Emo Dare
When I first created Dare in Rock Band 2, I was planning on him having a typical emo personality. There's still some remnants of this here and here, but by the time you reach this pic, the personality change had already happened.
10) Ginger Cassidy (Tim's Mom); also, "Normal" Cassidy
Having Cassidy be a blonde was only decided last year... I thought that Tim would've gotten his looks from his mom, until I came up with the idea of him looking almost exactly like his dad.
Also, back when Tim was just Tim and had no story, his mom was a pretty normal lady living in a normal house.
11) "Chibi forms" in Dreams; Also, blonde Luli
This is a kind of obscure idea I had. xD; I was trying to give a reason to why Luli looks so chibi while everyone else looks more detailed... and I thought that maybe everyone had a "simplified" form in Dreams and they could switch back and forth at will. xD I don't remember what the point was... I think it was you had to be in a simplified form to get into some certain building... idk. Also, I originally planned for Luli to be blonde. :9
12) Nicholay Crushing on Isaac; Also, Tome Magic
Nicholay still looks up to Isaac like a father, but the idea before was that he was so young that he confused his admiration for love. Yeah... Nicholay's not that ignorant (?), so I scrapped that.
Nicholay also used to fight with tomes (books), like mages in Fire Emblem. Now he just uses rings and bracelets to focus his power, while even more skilled mages use only their MIND AND BODY...
13) Faida Turns into a Bird
I'm still not sure what the outcome of Faida's story will be (not that you know any of it 'cause I haven't posted much about her), but an idea was that she's sick and is going to turn into a bird. ...yeah, idk. Still not sure what I'm doing with her.
14) Old Man Gaelnis
I originally planned for Falorin's main minion to be an old man... and then I made Gaelnis, and decided against that. xD
15) Depressed/anorexic/bulemic Rick
SO THIS ONE'S KIND OF DEPRESSING.........
Even back in the early days of Rick, I had already decided that Rick would have a moment in 9th grade when he comes out to Dare and gets bullied at school for it. But another thing I had considered was that Rick was so upset that Dare didn't like him that he would cut himself, and would skip meals and other stuff to get skinnier (because skinnier = more like a girl = Dare would like him better, or something). In the current story, Rick does occasionally skip dinner and loses some weight... but not because he wants to look like a girl, it's because he's too embarassed/ashamed to be around his family and is busy thinking about things in his room. Nowadays I think Rick's smart enough not to intentionally do anything destructive to himself.
16) Divorced Stef
I didn't know how to draw this one, except to draw Stef in a wedding ring... It's probably on the wrong hand. :U
Anyways, I had this idea at one point that Stefan was married at one point, but decided that was kind of weird. I think I only even thought about that because Takara came up with these weird quotes for Stefan to say. xD One of them was "I tell my wife about you", so wife reminded me of divorce, and... yeah.
NOW YOU KNOW THE WEIRD THINGS THAT GO ON IN MY MIND WHILE I TRY TO DECIDE WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE MY CHARACTERS ARE... Sorry for the ridiculously long post. xD;
I think I'm going to start tagging my posts in this world. ;o It'll help with organization. When you click on a tag in a world, I didn't realize that it brings you to all the posts with the tag only in that particular world. That's pretty cool. It's kind of like google search! Like if I tag my posts with the names of the characters in the post, I'll be able to find all the posts with those characters in it! 8D It's amazing! No really, I'm pretty impressed with this. I think I'll spend my day adding tags to my old posts here, too. :m FUN LIFE.
YEAH. I got a new sketchbook... so I'm going to upload some of the sketches from my old sketchbook, and some stuff from my new sketchbook. :D Just because...
This is ALLLLLLL THE WAY FROM NEW YEARS... I was going to draw Eagle and Kor in a new years picture, but I didn't. xD; I mainly wanted to post this just 'cause I like that random doodle of Dean Johnson... >3> I want to upload a colored picture of Dean someday.
Old sketch of Tim's mom, Cassidy. The legs are kind of weirdo, but eh. :I I like drawing Cassidy's hair, but I don't really like her.... so I don't draw her often. xD
Stefan sketch! I actually like this, but I'm not going to ink it. HEHE... Sorry. xD; But there's a big background... and I hate coloring backgrounds. :I And that's my excuse.
I was thinking of this song when I drew this, because the guitar at the beginning reminds me of raindrops. :m And this band also just reminds me of Stefan for SOME REASON...
Deannnnn. I'll probably finish this picture eventually... xD; But idk, I'm not crazy about it. We'll see.
My friend who created Dean said he looked buffer here. ._.
Gabe and Stefan. I wanted to draw people from the back. :U And then my friend made the ">3< SO CUTE!" comment.
CORN. Okay. I probably won't finish this either... """"""orz I'M SORRY, I'M LAZY!
Doodles from my new sketchbook.... HMNNNHIIIO is surprisingly fun to draw. xD
In my Pokemon game, I named my character Oliver... so I always imagined HMNNNHIIIO to belong to Dare. xD Aha. In my new file I named my character Dare... yeah. DARE IS A POKEMASTER.
Something I drew today... I used a REAL PENCIL and not a mechanical pencil! :O Last time I drew with a normal pencil, I drew Tim also... hm. I probably won't finish this, it was just some random thing that I didn't even know what I was doing. Hence the strange pose.
AND... That's all. :D
