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!
Sorry if this post is super disorganized, it's kind of crowded in the lounge right now which is making it hard for me to focus. ;u;> Anyway, here's some stuff I've drawn. I posted more doodle-y kind of stuff on tumblr, but that was just stuff on lined paper and whatever.
I've been drawing with thin lines a lot, lately. I've also been messing around with soft shading... WHICH I ALWAYS DO AND EVENTUALLY GET FED UP WITH...! But I've decided to keep it simple with soft shading, lately. :Y I've just accepted that I'll never understand crazy complex soft coloring........
Also, Ping Pong: The Animation is a gr8 anime which I highly recommend. B)
GABE. I drew this a while ago. I haven't drawn Gabe in several weeks, and I'm so out of practice. ""orz SAVE ME, SOMEONE...
But yeah, thin lines. This is actually something that Mark McGrath wore, because idk how to come up with clothing for Gabe on my own. ;u;/
Lafayette dressed as Rizzo from Grease, because why the heck not. This is the part Lafayette gets for the big school play that happens in the year that Nerdy and Jock takes place. (Though is Nerdy and Jock even the duration of a year...? Idk. It's just whatever, really.) I ALSO DECIDED THIS BEFORE GREASE LIVE WAS A THING, BTW... I ended up watching Grease Live, tho. It wasn't bad, but I kinda like the movie version more haha. :Y
But yeah. This is like the biggest part Lafayette got in theater in a while, b/c he misbehaved his freshman or sophomore year and was put on THEATER PROBATION (???) or something. He's been stuck with roles like "VILLAGER 3" for the past while. On a not totally relevant note, he usually likes playing girl characters with deeper or old fashion-y singing voices. I usually imagine this song as sort of the kind of roles he likes to play. But idk.
Some doodle of Dmitri and Lafayette. I draw them a lot lately. :U This took longer for me to draw than I wanted, though;;;
Working on coloring that sketch/line art/thing I posted a while ago. I'm stuck on Dmitri right now, though;; for some reason his skin shadow keeps coming out weird, idk.
Some doodles I did of Dmitri earlier today. This is like the first time I've drawn him in something other than that sweater or tank top of his. :U
Okay, that's all I've got. BLUGHGLUB sorry I'm so unenthusiastic right now;;; HAVE A NICE WEEKEND, THOUGH!!!
YO, sorry for not posting here in a while. orz I just kept forgetting. ;u;/ Here's some draws I've done.
I had this dream with Lafayette and Dmitri a couple weeks ago. :Y It was like... Dmitri and this random dude were super suspicious about Lafayette, because Laf was acting all sneaky for some reason and hiding in the basement all the time. Dmitri and Dude-Guy thought Laf was a werewolf or something. (???) So Dmitri kept trying to sneak into the basement to figure out what was going on. BUT! It turns out Laf wasn't the werewolf, it was actually DMITRI, and Dmitri was PURPOSELY making LAF seem SUSPICIOUS so he could go into the BASEMENT when LAF wasn't LOOKING and WEREWOLF IT UP.
Yeah, it didn't make much sense.
Oh, and Laf could talk to cats, which is why I drew him with a cat, here. :^D
I've been trying to get comfortable drawing Laf in clothing beyond just school uniforms. But. He always looks most natural in school uniforms, idk;;
A classmate commissioned me to do a watercolor painting for them! I got 35 bucks. B)
Was practicing drawing Prue a little while ago. I tried using colors I don't usually use, but idk. PURPLE! YELLOW! TEAL-ISH...??
More Prue practice. Slowly understanding how to draw her head.... slowly........
I also think I have a better understanding of her personality, now. It's kind of bothered me that her personality has pretty much just been "not very emotional" because that's so BORING! GAH! But I think if I conceptualize her as "emotionally cool" rather than like "emotionless," she makes a little more sense to me. :Y
idk if that makes sense to YOU, BUT TOO BAD.
I also started thumbnailing a short comic with her and Noland, so maybe that'll happen some day. (I'VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR MONTHS, BUT... OH WELL...)
Some SteGabe. I SHOULD DO A NICE FINISHED STEGABE DRAWING, THAT'S WHAT I SHOULD DO...
Laf looking TOO TALL. Idk what it is about him, but I just can't get his proportions consistent.
Also, Laf sings. Usually for musicals. Sweet.
Chibi of Brady from Fire Emblem that I did for someone on tumblr. :u
Chibi of Inigo from Fire Emblem that I also did for someone on tumblr. :uu
I ref'd the pose from here, number 4G. I wanna do some life drawingssssss guh. orz
YEAH, NOT MUCH ELSE TO SAY HERE... enjoy life, my compatriot. (?????)
Back again with more stuff. >:Y
When I drew this, I could only think about the fact that I'VE NEVER DRAWN O. J. IN FRONTAL VIEW...???? I had no idea what I was doing.
I wonder if I'll ever talk about or draw O. J.'s backstory/plot.
I don't even watch Steven Universe. BUT, UH. HERE'S SARDONYX IN SOME OUTFIT! I might move this to the Fashion Your Life world, later.
Speaking of SU, though, I'm really into this AMV even though I don't really watch the show.
THIS DRAWING KEEPS BOTHERING BECAUSE HIS HAIR IS SO UNEVEN!!! Look at the lack of hair by the ear on the left. ...But yeah, I guess this is Laf's smile, idk. (I ALMOST SPELLED THAT AS "SMYLE" WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME;;;)
Gaboooooooo. His chin's a little too long, but I like how this came out. -u-/
Legz. I like drawing legs, friends. I also really like how Stefan's nose looks, here. *u*b I also initially spelled "nose" as "NOZE" I'M HORRIBLE.
I just drew this to match the above drawing, I don't really like it as much. .3.
I tried drawing Estelle. I like her album "Shine", that's about all the songs of hers that I know.
Something I drew for a class, Idk what it's really supposed to mean. -u-/;;;;
YEP YEP. I need to do work. """"orz
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! Hope y'all are having a good time. >:Y I'm really behind on posting stuff to theOtaku, though... sorry 'bout that. orz. Here's the 10 most recent things I've drawn, starting with least recent to most recent. If that makes sense. IDK THAT'S HOW I ALWAYS ORGANIZE THESE POSTS...
I wanted to practice making my expressions have more movement!! >:U I think I'm somewhat decent at expressions, but I really struggle with HEAD ANGLES and just making my characters more fluid in general. It's something I really wanna get better at, 'cause I really like art that puts a lot of emphasis on gesture. ;u;/
HEY, IT'S THESE GUYS!!! Yeah, got the urge out of nowhere to draw Ned and Jack, one day. I started inking this and it looks oookayyyy... but I'm not entirely sure if I'm gonna finish, yet. -u-/
As I mentioned in the last post, I've been drawing Lafayette and Dmitri a lot... This is their height difference. AMAZING.
I've more or less gotten the hang of drawing Lafayette, but Dmitri's still kind of weird to draw. orz IT'S MAINLY HIS LEGS, IDK...!! Those stupid shorts he always wears just trip me up. WHAT THE HECK, MAN. Also, I know I haven't talked much about Dmitri... you can find a profile of sorts for him HERE. (My poor weebly page is so unfinished...;;)
A Stefan I drew while listening to Imaginary Folklore by Nujabes ft. Clammbon. Btw Nujabes's music is pretty cool imo, yo......... /pointless recommendation.
I tried really hard to make Stefan's lips look really nice here, but I couldn't really get them to look quite how I wanted. aaah I'm so jealous of people who can color really pretty lips. ;u;>
More Dmitri. This is where I finally started to understand how to draw his hair. >:U
I finished the line art for that Nowi drawing! Maybe I'll try to finish coloring it, today... I've already gotten like halfway there. -u-/
Even more Dmitri! I wanted to play with colors a little bit... mainly in the shadow color. I didn't have any real rhyme or reason for the colors I chose, so idk it came out kinda meh. xD; BUT WHATEVZ... I'M PRACTICING.
Average report card grades for the dudes of Nerdy and Jock + Lafayette. I was gonna include the girls, too, but I ran out of horizontal room on the paper. Idk why the football dudes are the smart ones, here.
Dmitri’s actually gets the second best grades out of the cast (after Brodney’s girlfriend who STILL HAS NO NAME). He’s really organized with his notes and studies often.
Jack gets good grades by BS-ing everything, while Brodney studies with his girlfriend/is also just a smart dude. Ned is only good at math and science, which is why his grade suffers overall.
Lafayette just literally doesn’t go to class or do homework.
(Don’t be Lafayette, kids.)
I FEEL LIKE IT'S BEEN FOREVER SINCE I POSTED ANY STEGABE!!! I still doodle them a lot on my notes... -u-/;;;
I feel like I've mentioned before, but Stefan doesn't like being called "baby" 'cause he's an old fool. ALTHOUGH THE OLDER I GET THE LESS I FEEL LIKE I CAN CALL STEFAN OLD... HE'S ONLY 30 WHAAAA.
Randomly had the urge to do some realism, the other day. Idk if this is actually what Lafayette would look like, I kind a messed up on the nose. .3.;
When I was drawing this, thouogh, I felt like Lafayette actually... looks a lot like me......... I USED TO HAVE SUPER PUFFY HAIR, TOO, but I got a haircut in the summer and now I don't. Laf's hair is like a lot more symmetrical than my hair was, though. -u-/
Yeppp. Thanks for viewing, and have a gr8 Halloween! 8D
YO sorry for the lack of posting here, for the past couple weeks. I've been in a bit of a drawing rut, I guess. orz HOPEFULLY THAT'LL STOP SOON, HAHA. Anyway, have some drawings.
WOW the first thing I post is something super embarrassing. I remember being really uncomfortable drawing the profiles, when I drew this. I haven't practiced profiles in a while. orz
This is a emoji challenge request I did of Den-chan's character, Coda. >:U Sunglasses, bro. They make everyone at least 5% cooler.
I feel like I posed this, already... even though I don't think I did. Anyway, this is a Marth and Roy print I'm working on! *U*b It's a remake of sorts, of this old drawing from 2008. ;o Except Marth and Roy are in their SSB4 outfits, now. Even though I've been kind of lazy about working on it (still haven't finished the line art;;), I'm really looking forward to finishing it! *U*/
This is an emoji challenge request I did of Kasa's character, Kin. KASA, I'LL DRAW ELIZA, TOO, I PROMISE...!!! Eventually.
I wanted to draw Stefan in this shirt, and white pants. Yeah, it's a totally normal outfit, idk why I felt the urge to draw it.... I was surprised with how the pose came out, though. :U
BRODNEY DOODLE... My beautiful, shining child of pure goodness.
Also, I think I finally designed his girlfriend...???? I don't really have a strong attachment to her, though, idk how I feel about her. I'll post those sketches later, though.
I liked this when I drew it, but NOW IT JUST SCARES ME...!!! Anyway, I was watching Chunibyo and Free!, so I tried to draw in Kyoto Animation's style.... It's too weird for me to draw. Never again.
Also, this is supposed to be Jack. (????) And the background is from here. (IDK WHAT'S GOING ON IN THIS SCREENSHOT, IT'S JUST WHAT I FOUND THAT HAD A SOMEWHAT OPEN BACKGROUND.)
This is about all the progress I've made on the Marth and Roy pic... I need to line Roy. """orz INKING WHY.
Fake screenshot! I didn't technically draw this, I traced the first panel of this page from the webcomic THIS IS NOT FICTION. >:U I was gonna do the whole panel, but... this was so much easier! AHA;;;
I'm working on a couple fake screenshots of my own characters and stuff, too. Those'll be done eventually. WOO.
Okay, yep. That's all I've got, for now. YEAH!
