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!
THE TITLE IS MY INTRODUCTION THIS ONE TIME.
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
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.........
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...;;;
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!
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!
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;
I didn't know what to title this. Just thought I'd post that I changed Gabe's chest tattoo! 8D I changed it from this monstrosity to this different monstrosity:
Yep. AGH, SHIRTLESS. I mean...
Colored tattoos are too difficult for me to work with, so... yeah. Black tattoo for you, Gabe. :V I think black design-ish tattoos look cooler anyway, in my opinion. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT TATTOOS. Nothing, is the answer. .3.
GABE, STOP PRETENDING TO LOOK BASHFUL, WE ALL KNOW YOU WANT TO DO THIS:
Weird anatomy, wooooo! :D I think I drew this like a month ago, and was like, "HAHA. GABE....;;;" when I finished it.
SPEAKING OF GABE,
which I guess I have been this whole time... Here's a random comic thing with Gabe, Kasey, and Jo! This takes place 4-ish years before the current OFAV timeline, when Gabe and Jo just moved to France. For the first year or so, the three of them all lived together in an apartment.
Also, kind of PG-13 warning for swearing, and weird conversation topic.
I posted this on dA just now to get it the right size, so here's the long footnotes I put with it:
Kasey and Gabe's relationship initially is like how it is in this comic. They have some problems because
- Gabe's never had many female friends and consequently isn't very good at interacting with them as a whole
- Kasey gets crushes on almost every guy she meets (including Gabe, for a while)
- Kasey prematurely thinks that since Gabe's gay, she can treat him like a girl/assume gay stereotypes on him. (this one's not really pictured in the comic.)
That third reason Gabe and Kasey don't get along is kind of weird, because Kasey kind of simultaneously holds two (incorrect) images of Gabe: Gabe acts "straight," so he probably likes girls even though he says he's gay; and Gabe says he's gay, so he probably has good fashion sense/watches musicals/etc according to gay stereotypes. They contradict each other to some degree, but... it's Kasey. :V SHE THINKS WHAT SHE WANTS, I GUESS.
ALSO, sorry about the borderline sexist comments from Gabe. HE'S NOT BEING SPITEFUL... and panel 3's "this" means "this action," not "this person." By the way, speaking of Gabe! In the third panel, I'd like to mention that Gabe does flirt with straight guys, but he usually does so to get a reaction out of the other person than to pursue romantic action with the person. (? weird sentence.)
UM. WELL, I HOPE THAT ENTERTAINED YOU TO SOME DEGREE. Slightly regretting posting this. xD;;; I actually have this little story (?) in mind about Jo, Kasey, and Gabe all living together, and how Gabe and Kasey end up coming to terms with each other. (WOW, KASEY IN THE LIMELIGHT?!?!?!?! Or sort of. It'll probably be mostly Gabe. "orz)
AND SO THERE'S THAT, I GUESS.
Note: If you're straight, you probably shouldn't flirt with your gay friends. Same with vise versa. And if you're bi, flirt with people compatible with you, I guess. DON'T FOLLOW KASEY'S EXAMPLE, BASICALLY...
....The end of this post. WOW, SO MUCH GABE!
Hey guys! It's 2 minutes to midnight as I'm typing this. :D Happy almost new year's, everyone!! In the new year's spirit, I did some OFAV new year's doodles. C:
This is the first one I drew. :D Champagne for Stef, and beer for Gabe 'cause I guess he's not classy enough. (?) Idk why Gabe's winking. Drawing laid-back and happy Stef was weird, but it's nice to see him causal(ish) and friendly every so often. :9
I like drawing random dialogue. The main reason Stefan likes new year's is because he has an excuse to drink and not worry. I actually had him saying something along that line, but I accidentally cropped it out. xD;
This isn't related to the previous comic-thing. The premise is that everyone's basically like, "We sometimes think you don't like us Stefan, but it's nice that we got to be your friend this year again! :D" And Stefan is emotional when he drinks.
This bit of StefanxTomato is dedicated to Wakusei Aoshi, who used to ship them and maybe still does.
Actually, there is no drinking age in France. It's illegal to sell alcohol to people under 18 years old.
Dean doesn't drink. Jo does sometimes, but not really much. Pointless information.
Okay, it's 22 minutes after midnight where I am now. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! Happy 2014! :D Let's have a good year this year!
Yeah. I have a lot of old sketches and doodles on SAI. I can't show you all of them since I can only post like 10 pictures in one post, but here's a couple of them. Hooray! 8D
I posted this on my DA, so this might look familiar. This is Stefan's boss! She's the head of the New York branch of the modelling agency that Stefan and Tomato belong to. :D She probably won't appear in the comic, but she appears from time to time in Tomato's backstory. So if I ever draw that, you'll know who she is.
She doesn't have a name yet. :m Any suggestions?
I totally thought I posted this on theOtaku, but... idk, I can't find it. xD; This is a mock sticker sheet of the main characters from OFAV! :D I actually did make stickers out of these using my sticker machine, and stuck them on my physics binder. (why? xD;) I like how Stefan and Dean's came out, but my least favorite is Kasey... Kasey's always my least favorite. Her hairstyle just looks so weird to me... I want to restyle it, but it's already too late, I think. xD;
I also thought I posted this on theO, but... ONCE AGAIN, I GUESS NOT! If you were looking closely, you could see it in his "character development meme" I posted several months ago. This is actually really old, from November of last year. This was probably when I realized that I really enjoy drawing Gabe. :D;
This is REEEAAALLY old, from last year or something. Just some random stuff on alcohol and drinks, I guess.
I think Gabe looks hilarious here, for some reason.
I drew this last month, I think. I was drawing pictures to the song I was listening to. Drawing something in less than 5 minutes is really hard! ;u; And no girls, because I'm a buttox.
I don't remember what song I was drawing to in the last picture, but I think it was Motorcycle Drive By.
Idk when I drew this, but it's pretty old. I had a sudden urge to draw HMNNNHIIIO and Dare, since HMNNNHIIIO is technically Dare's Pokemon. Idk, I thought it was kind of cute despite its sloppiness. xD;
Stefan and Gabe doodles in comic form. I actually doodle stuff like this all the time in my doodle notebooks........
along with, y'know, actual stuff like OFAV comic strip plans and stuff. *cough cough*
Timmeroo! Tim. I had a sudden urge to draw Tim some weeks ago. I keep drawing that head angle, but idk if I'm even drawing that head perspective right. :M;;; OH WELL, WORKS FOR ME I GUESS...
And more Tim! I've missed Tim. I think I drew this the same day or the previous day as the previous one. My handwriting's even worse with a tablet, so if you can't read it, sorry. xD;
By "Gabe idiots", I mean people who are "idiotic" in a similar way that Gabe is. DOES THAT MAKE ANY MORE SENSE? NO! 8D
Luli doodle from yesterday. Woo! I haven't drawn her in forever. I made a Luli outfit in Animal Crossing, though! 8D It looks weird! But oh well.
This is a grapefruit gijinka I did for someone on Gaiaonline. I do a lot of freebies on Gaiaonline, but I don't bother posting them because they're pretty lazy. xD; This one came out cute enough, though. I like a grapefruit color scheme. :V
And yeah! I should probably work on other more important stuff, now...
