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.

Enjoy Your Stay at Various Planning!
Some stuff from the past week. :V
Stefans! I mainly just wanted to draw Stefan in a vest, but then I had to draw those crazy shorts on him. HEH... I actually really want a vest like that, but idk where they sell them. .m.
On another note, I think I'm finally used to drawing Stefan's torso in a not suit! Usually when I draw him in casual clothes or just a t-shirt, he comes out either looking too skinny, or with huge shoulders. Usually when he wears casual clothes, though, he'll either wear long sleeves or a jacket.
I was shopping for golf clothing with my mom last weekend, which made me realize...
Noland would be so fun to draw in golf clothing...
I actually came up with a short-ish comic with Noland and Prue and the rest of the English department related to this, but idk if I'll ever draw it. I recently realized (as in on Friday) that I'm really out of practice as far as drawing on paper goes. And that Noland's hair makes no sense.
Some sketches I did at like 5 AM one morning, because I couldn't sleep. :V It took like half an hour, in all. I was listening to songs, so I spent like one song on each sketch. I'M SO MAD THAT SKETCHING IS SO MUCH EASIER FOR ME TO DO ON SAI, RIGHT NOW... """orz
I've been re-watching Tiger and Bunny, and Barnaby is gr8. :V So yeah.
Also, Kotetsu is impossible to draw. That, and two eyes. Gah.
I tried something different with the coloring, but I probably won't do it again. xD; WHATEVZ.
I found this while cleaning the kitchen table. This is from like, senior year. A PROBABLE SCENARIO, STILL TO THIS DAY...
In other news, the table is a mess yet again. WHY.
Since I realized how impossible it is for me to draw Noland's hair unless I'm doodling, I thought I'd try and practice. I also wanted to have a colored pencil drawing of Noland with his right eye color, since he hilariously has brown eyes in that one picture... so yeah.
ALRIGHT, so there's that. Thanks for viewing!!
Here's some stuff I haven't posted yet from the past couple weeks. :V
Ned and Jack doodlie-doo. I'm surprised that I really like Jack. Usually I gravitate toward hyperactive idiot characters like Ned, but I think I have more fun drawing Jack. *3* Also, Ned's too tall here. I forget how tall he's supposed to be... like 6'1? Jack's 5'11. Idk.
I was feeling bad for not drawing Stefan and Gabe one day, so I drew this. I draw Gabe in tank tops too often, these days... I'm not as used to seeing him in a t-shirt. xD;
Painting practice on SAI. Idk how this even managed to come out decent, because usually I mess up paintings so bad... xD THE LUCK WAS WITH ME, I SUPPOSE. I didn't feel like drawing Noland's other eye, though, so I just eyepatched it up. :V
More Ned and Jack. Ned looks really scary in the top right pic, sorry. orz
Jack's redheaded football friend, Dmitri. He's a total jerk who can't think for himself, but he's actually a really fun character to draw. :V He'll be appearing in comics from time to time, usually to grump around and be angry at Ned. Yeah.
Here's some random little dialogue. .3. I keep seeing Jack as some little human sitting in a tiny chair, instead of being in the background... .u.;;;
I was staying at my aunt's house about a week and a half ago, and she asked me to draw something on her chalkboard. :V So I drew Noland... aha. xD; CHALK IS SO HARD TO WORK WITH, THOUGH... I couldn't get the skin to have a nice even layer of color. It took me like 4 tries. orz
I did some random sketch of Gabe yesterday, and I actually kinda liked how it came out. SO I GUESS I'LL INK AND COLOR IT...? I know I upload a whole ton of grinning Gabe, but... EH... It's his signature look, okay...! ;u;
And uh... yeah, that's all for now. I have some doodles from the beach that I forgot to scan last week, so I'll try to upload those sometime soon. ;o
Idk why the *u* face has been my smiley of choice, lately, but I have indeed been using it a lot in my posts and things. It just kind of happened...;;; ~*~STARS IN MY EYES~*~
I'm really behind in posting my tumblr doodles to theO, but I will post them all!! (Sorry to those of you who follow my tumblr and have already seen them;;; I do this not just so the people not following my tumblr see my sketches, but also so I can add longer footnotes/commentary on my sketches. BECAUSE. I LOVE TALKING ABOUT MY OCS;;;)
For now, have some Noland sketches from this past school year, and a new character that's part of the Nerdy and Jock crew.
I wrote that Noland doesn't like many sweets, but I think it actually goes like this: He tells people he doesn't care much for sweets, but if offered a dessert, he'll always eat it. *¬*
Stefan honestly does dislike sweets, though. I LOVE SWEETS, SO IDK HOW THIS IS EVEN POSSIBLE, BUT...
My mom also dislikes sweets. I've mentioned before, but I use my mom as reference for a lot of Stefan things... >3>;;;
If I ever get around to doing anything with Teach Me Something Good, there's this one scene or series of scenes or something where Chrys invites Noland to an amusement park and stuff goes down there. I'd really like working on Teach Me Something Good because I think it'd actually be a pretty interesting story/comic/idk what... but yeah, I just don't really feel like I can take the time to draw/write it, yet.
Some random Noland. I was trying to get a handle on his body type. I STILL STRUGGLE SO HARD, BRO... ""orz Consistency is not my strong point. :D;
This was supposed to be like some chapter cover illustration, or something. Maybe I just wanted to draw Noland in a bowtie. I. Don't. Know.... >3>;
I've briefly mentioned the scene where Noland gets asked on a date by a fellow teacher. That fellow teacher is, indeed, Prue. :V This is another scene thing that I'd like to draw/write, if I wasn't hilariously lazy. -u-b
Another chapter cover illustration thing. This pic is also kind of spoilers that I haven't mentioned, yet. I don't want to reveal to much about this, because the ending-ish part of Teach Me Something Good can come off as very "I wanted this to be unnecessarily dramatic hoo hoo look at this story"...;;; I've considered taking out this part so many times... and I still might, idk yet. "orz
(Btw, Teach Me Something Good ends around the time that Chrystal graduates, but Noland and Prue's story continues for years after TMSG.)
The title-word-stuff comes from this band from the 50's called Nolan Strong and the Diablos. :^D I only know about them because I googled Noland Strong this one time...
Also spoilers of the same nature as the previous pic, but yeah. I'mma just leave this here... :V;;;
LASTLY, here's a pic of the new character: Ned's best friend, Charlotte! 8D;
And I'm too lazy to come up with new commentary on this, so I'mma copy and paste this up, yo. >:V
So, uh. Ned has a best friend, and this is her. I feel like I haven’t designed a character like this since 2009, or something. xD MULTIPLE BELTS. CRAZY PANTS. LOTS OF BRACELETS. HAIR OVER THE EYE!!!!
Anyway, yeah. This is Ned’s best friend since 6th grade, and her name’s Charlotte Han. She’s some sort of voice of reason to Ned’s crazy hyper fool thing. Maybe.
I’m so bad at “scene” fashion, but I kind of think it’s pretty cool looking. Tacky, for sure, but SOMETIMES, YOU JUST DIG THE TACKY.
THAT'S ALL FOR NOW! Thanks for viewing, as always~~~ ;3;
Here's some stuff from the past couple week or two! :M
Prue and Nolandddd. :V They're fun to draw together. I'll make a big long post about their relationship, eventually.
I imagine Noland has like 7 pillows on his bed and uses all of them when he goes to sleep.
Some drawing of me. I was explaining to someone how I kind of choose clothes based on my characters... >3>;;;
THE SADDEST NOLAND DOODLE IN EXISTENCE!! I wasn't feeling sad at all when I drew this; I just wanted to draw a really sad crying face. xD; Noland's supposed to be around 22 here, but idk if he actually looks any younger than how I normally draw him;;;
I was listening to this when I drew this. I listen to a lot of Daughter when I draw Noland. :V;;; THIS IS STILL YOUR FAULT, KASA...
I feel like I had a reason for drawing the doodle on the top where Gabe's being a clingy idiot, but I can't remember what it was. RANDOM COMIC, WOO HOO!
Felt like drawing Noland in some outfit he'd never actually wear. RED PANTS!
Some cranky Stefan. Boo yah.
Nerdy and Jock sketches. ONE THING I REALLY LIKE ABOUT THIS GROUP is that they're all high school school kids (which is something I haven't focused on since A Life Like This), but there's no real "high school drama". Idk, I was never really into high school drama fiction like Degrassi or Glee or other things... but I do kind of like Disney Channel high school shows, like Good Luck Charlie and ANT Farm, because they're just really fun! xD So idk I guess this is like my Disney Channel boys love with swearing.
And since it's summer, have a bathing suit pic! 8D These are some friends' and my Fire Emblem OCs. My OC Wybert is the one in the hilarious old fashioned one piece...........;;;
I feel like I've been doing a random "here's some stuff I drew" dump like, every week... >3>; H-HOPE YOU GUYS ACTUALLY LIKE THESE POSTS, BECAUSE I'M GONNA KEEP DOING THEM.
ANYWAY, I'm almost done with the next OFAV strip... I said I'd update every two weeks, but I'm HORRIBLE. So I'll probably finish it tonight and upload it tomorrow morning. 8D IDK, MAYBE I'LL TRY TO UPDATE THIS SATURDAY, TOO, TO MAKE UP FOR IT!!
Anyways, here's some things I drew recently.
After playing Mario Kart 8, my passion for the Koopalings has been REKINDLED. I used to really like them in elementary school, back when Iggy still had rainbow hair like Lemmy. :V They always seemed so hardcore to me because of their spiked bracelets, so PUNK-ISH GIJINKAS, I GUESS...
I also thought Roy (bottom right) had a pink bowl cut, for a while... I GUESS HE'S ACTUALLY JUST BALD...?
Anyway, these were really fun to design, and I might make some more drawings with them. :D
Some sketches of Noland and Prue. WEIRD-ISH CONVERSATION POINT COMING UP...?: I don't usually like drawing girls because I always draw chests badly. BUT. I actually enjoy drawing Prue because her ~pointy bosoms~ are actually pretty easy to draw................................ She's just all around angular, actually. Maybe that's why I like drawing her. I usually draw guys pretty angular because of the muscles....
/end weird topic
I REALLY SHOULD DRAW CHRYSTAL MORE, because she's technically more important to Teach Me Something Good than Prudence. Not that Prudence isn't important.... Idk, she's more important overall in Noland's life than Chrystal is, but Teach Me Something Good focuses on his first year as a high school teacher. Or something. WHAT. EVER.
Maybe I'll talk about Noland and Prue in detail, sometime. Idk, I think they're interesting. MAYBE, YOU, WILL, THINK SO, TOOOOOOO?????
This is actually from a couple weeks ago, but HERE YOU GO.
Soft shading practice! 8U If anyone has some tips on how to soft shade on SAI, THROW THEM MY WAY BECAUSE I'M STILL HALF-WINGING IT. AND ABUSING OVERLAYS.....
This has been happening a lot to me, but I keep seeing DARE IN GABE'S EXPRESSIONS AND IT'S FREAKING ME OUT. I like Gabe and I like Dare, but I don't like thinking "oh he looks like Dare" when I draw Gabe.
~*~sweatshirt with the sleeves ripped off is really pointless!~*~
I was trying to draw an outfit for him, okay. Idk what kind of clothes Gabe even shops for...;;; WHY CAN'T YOU BE SIMPLE AND JUST WEAR SUITS LIKE STEFAN?
I think I've been doodling Gabe a lot because I'm paranoid that I won't like drawing him anymore if I don't draw him a lot.
BUT AKIOH, YOU LOVE DRAWING PUNK IDIOTS!
You're right, you're right. I shouldn't worry. :U;;
I have a doodle like this in my sketchbook, but it didn't look very attractive, so I drew it again on SAI.
In my mind, Stefan tries to act like a gentleman when he's dating Gabe by doing things like opening doors and offering to pay for meals for Gabe, and Gabe can't decide if he should be flattered or annoyed by it.
And my mind is canon because Stefan and Gabe are my mind, so THIS IS CANON.
...okay that's all. HAVE A NICE WEEK, AWESOME POSSUMS.
