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.

Enjoy Your Stay at Various Planning!

Bathing suit doodles, 'cause why not.

I... mostly did these because I wanted to draw Gabe in stupid swim shorts PRACTICE DRAWING GABE'S BODILY PROPORTIONS.... and then I threw some other people in there for the sake of a fun swimsuit time. :^D

External Image
I DON'T REALLY MENTION IT, but Kasey and Gabe are actually total bros! 8D Or bro and sis. Or besties. IDK, I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO SAY BESTIES, SO I WENT WITH BROS EVEN THOUGH KASEY'S A GIRL. They like to geek out over hot celebs and sing trashy pop music together. (???) Yeah, idk.
I actually have a comic idea about Jo, Gabe, and Kasey living together when they first move to France, and how Kasey and Gabe become friends. Gabe's actually a pretty big butthole in that story, but I think it'd be an interesting thing for me to draw, someday. :V
Kasey always wears fun clothes. I should design stuff for her more often. :m

External Image
I have no idea what this dialogue is, or even how I was supposed to write it. I-I DON'T REALLY TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT ATTRACTIVE PEOPLE. HOW IS IT DONE? WHAT IS CONSIDERED ETHICAL AND UNETHICAL? ENLIGHTEN ME.....
As Kasey and Gabe are pretty close, Stefan and Jo are actually decent friends, as well. He considers her more or less the most level headed person out of the OFAV group, excluding maybe Dean. Jo was actually the one who got Kasey and Gabe their jobs with Tomato and Stefan, by the way. :^D

External Image
Idk how to draw Jo's face anymore. -u-b And I don't really have anything else to say about this doodle. Meh. :^D

External Image
I MEAN, WHY NOT DRAW NOLAND IN STUPID SHORTS, TOO... Aha, yeah. While I do think Gabe would seriously wear stupidly short swim shorts, Noland would probably wear knee-ish length swim trunks and some sort of swim shirt or jacket. (Do swimming jackets exist? ...??? Idk.)
On a side note, Prue is so hard for me to draw without thinking of her as secretly Stefan...!!! ;m; I do have some fairly concrete differences between them in that she's 100x more honest/open than Stefan, and is far less cynical. But they both have this cold, intellectual air to them that I don't really know what to do with. (Not that it's even noticeable in the above doodle, but;;;) I guess Stefan's coldness is more or less intentionally put up on his own will, while Prue's coldness is something she doesn't really realize she's doing. Idk. I'LL FIGURE THIS CHICK OUT, ONE DAY.

You may have noticed that I degraded into my usual draw-one-eye-only syndrome. IT'S JUST... TOO HARD TO DRAW TWO EYES AND KEEP THE EXPRESSION I WANT AT THE SAME TIME. ;U;
So yeah. Happy almost winter break, guys! Hang in there, yo. ;o

Random OFAV doodle-things

GUYS, I FOUND ANOTHER COMIC CALLED OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES!! What the heck. Hahaha. xD

Anyway, here's some sketches/doodles I did in my doodle notebook thing.

External Image
Some years ago, my sister left me a comment with her prediction of all the pairings that would happen in OFAV, by character. For Stefan, she said "Stefan >> everyone."
UNUSUALLY PLAUSIBLE, ACTUALLY...
The only one of these that's moderately canon is StefanxTomato, because Stefan has a sort-of crush on Tomato in the comic. (Actually, I keep forgetting he's supposed to like Tomato... but.....;;;)
The next plausible would actually be StefanxDean. (!?!?) Stefan usually treats Dean pretty well (compared to the rest of the cast minus TB), but that's partially because Dean kind of a little bit reminds of Stefan of Noland. So I guess he's a little partial to Dean because of that.
The least plausible is... UH... probably StefanxKasey. I think Kasey is 100% unattracted to Stefan, purely because Stefan is 30 years old. Which is old for her. IDK, KASEY, YOU'RE ALREADY 25 OR 26 YOURSELF...

External Image
This is from some dialogue I was planning out for a comic about Stefan, Gabe, tattoos, and the levels of friendship or something. (????) I never finished the comic or the dialogue... I just took a picture of this because I like Stefan's face, here. 8D I like drawing an annoyed look on his face, hahaha.

External Image
I also really like drawing slightly-bashful-but-not-quite Gabe. 8D;;; This is probably the face of Gabe that I doodle the most in my notebooks....

External Image
Stefan was freaking out about making the monthly quota, or something. (??? idk how to talk in business terms.) Gabe's trying to help him out like an Absolute Pro.

External Image
A little doodle I did based on THIS AMAZING DRAWING THAT GEROCHAN DID FOR ME!!! ;0; ;0; ;0; /i'm totally bragging sorry
The "Stefan and Gabe Japanese umbrella romance" in the background made me wonder if Gabe would draw something like that.
Answer: maybe...

External Image
KISS ON CHEEK, OOOH. yeah. Here's my sort of ref. :V I-I like drawing corny romance stuff, okay...
Gabe's actually not that much taller than Stefan, so HOW LAME OF ME TO DRAW HIM SO TALL. Maybe Stefan's leaning down or something, idk.

SO! There's some stuff. :D HAPPY WEEKEND! I'LL TRY TO WORK ON THE NEXT OFAV...

OFAV: Preview Panel

I'm going to actually try and make OFAV look nice from now on!!! 8D;;;; one thing that I thought would be a good idea to make OFAV look nicer is to ink and color it panel by panel. Usually I do the inking of the strip all at once, and then color it all at once... but I think doing one panel at a time will make me focus on the quality more easily. This panel took a good 2 and a half hours to ink and color, though. Weeehhhh. ""orz THAT'S... a pretty long time. But the fact that I usually rush with my comics really shows in the other OFAV strips, though. THE INKING IS JUST... HORRIBLE... And the coloring hasn't been that great. Meh.
BUT CHECKITOUT, GUYS!! I think I finally have a skin tone that works for Kasey!! 8D

I'm also going to start using this harder lead pencil to do pre-sketches for the strips, which'll help me sketch faster and keep the strip cleaner, I think. 8D I actually managed to sketch the next strip pretty quickly today.
/irrelevant information

MAYBE WITH THESE NEW COMIC-ING TECHNIQUES (?), I WILL UPDATE OFAV MORE!! I actually really do want to, though. My goal this summer is to update OFAV like... EVERY WEEK. ;u; It'd be cool to finally see the story (?) rolling! Who knows if that'll actually happen, though;;;

Anyway, good night people! :9

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.

WIP and Other Stuff

THE TITLE IS MY INTRODUCTION THIS ONE TIME.

External Image
A commission I'm working on for a friend of that Homestuck guy Dave Strider. I do not know the Homestuck well, so I hope this is doing the dude justice. xD; Also, he will be holding a sword, which I have yet to draw. :V
DID YOU KNOW THAT HUGE CANVASES MAKE DRAWINGS LOOK CLEARER?? I always did, but didn't bother with huge canvas sizes because it takes more work. 8D; I think large file sizes affect the way that soft shading looks more than cell shading. And yeah, I'm soft shading this. .u.;;; I still have my qualms with soft shading (in that I'm just making it up as I go), but it seems to be getting easier than it was originally. :V

External Image
This is Jo, but her shoulder and face came out weird. :M;;; WHY SO GRUMPY? But man, I haven't drawn Jo in a long time. orz Maybe that's why she's so grumpy.........

External Image
Some Noland line art from a couple weeks ago that I decided to rapidly color last Friday. Aww, yeah.... that background. It probably took 5 minutes...;;;

External Image
A gijinka of Kyubey from Madoka Magica! 8D My sis wants us to go as "steampunk Madoka Magica characters" for Otakon this year, so I'm going to try to make this... probably not the pants, I'll just buy those or something. And I'll probably just buy some white oxfords as the shoes. And I own a white shirt. BUT THE JACKET, VEST, AND BELT! I will make them.
I don't think this is really steampunk.... BUT I DO THINK IT LOOKS COOL, SO WHATEVER. 8D;

Yeah, that's all I've got for now. SEE YA 'ROUND, FRIEND!
