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.

SEASON'S GREETINGS

...is what I would say if it wasn't already past the new year. HAPPY NEW YEAR, ANYWAY. Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. orz The internet in my hotel room is really bad. I'm in the lounge right now where the internet is better, but there are no power outlets, which is why I haven't really been able to get on my computer. orz BUT UH... YEP. Here's some things I've drawn, as usual. :^D

THERE'S LIKE... A WEIRD AMOUNT OF LAFAYETTE IN THIS POST. I honestly did not expect to care about Lafayette as a character, I'm actually pretty surprised with how much I'm drawing him;;; HOPE Y'ALL DON'T MIND, HAHA.

External Image
Dmitri, Jessica, and Charlotte. :Y I don't draw Charlotte enough;;; IDK SHE'S DIFFICULT.
By the way, before I made Lafayette a character, I was originally considering on just rounding out the couples in Nerdy and Jock by making these three a poly relationship. :Y (LAZY) My original original plan was to have Jessica and Dmitri be a thing, and make another girl character to be Charlotte's girlfriend. But I couldn't think of another girl character... and I kind of liked Charlotte and Jessica together......... And I can't really see Charlotte and Dmitri as having any chemistry, so I don't think the three of them dating would work out. :U
Eventually I made Lafayette, with the intention of him being the "girl character" to pair with Charlotte, but FOR SOME REASON? HE ENDED UP BEING DMITRI'S FRIEND...????? Honestly I don't remember why that happened. I like Dmitri's and Lafayette's dynamic, though, so that's good. It's still canon for Dmitri to have a crush on Jessica, though. :^Y
But yeah, there's that blab. I feel like I could say more, but IN REALITY I SHOULD JUST DRAW COMICS TO EXPLAIN THESE RELATIONSHIPS. "orz

External Image
Aaand here's Dmitri and Lafayette. MAN, I HATE DRAWING DMITRI'S LEGS. Idk what it is about his stupid shorts, but they make drawings legs so asymmetrical and difficult. :^|

External Image
Someone on tumblr asked me to draw Gaius, so here we are. :^D I actually don't really like drawing FE characters. orz THE OUTFITS... ARE SUCH A PAIN.....!!!!

External Image
Drew this when I got to Tokyo. It's an outfit smilar to something I saw someone wearing. :^Y TOKYO GIRLS ARE FREAKISHLY FASHIONABLE...!!!

External Image
Also saw a girl in a winter school uniform at the train station in Tokyo, so I drew it on Lafayette for some reason. I like the color and sleeve length on the winter uniform. :^D
SPEAKING OF SCHOOL UNIFORMS...
MY INTEREST IN ANIME/MANGA/VIDEO GAMES FEELS 10000x MORE EMBARRASSING HERE IN JAPAN THAN IT DOES IN AMERICA.
???????
It's true there's a lot more anime/manga merchandise in Japan, but it just feels so much more judge-y here if you're interested in it as an adult, and especially as a foreigner. xux/;;;;; MAYBE I'M JUST IMAGINING IT B/C NO ONE'S SAID ANYTHING... but that's just the feeling I get. "orz

External Image
Dmitri and my never ending struggle with thin lines. I like drawing Dmitri's pointy ears. :Y Stefan used to be my pointiest individual, but I think Dmitri is pointier. -u-/ (???? idk)

External Image External Image
Some doodles of Laf and Dmitri as kids. I'm thinking of using the bottom picture's dialogue as part of a short comic with the two of them. :^D I saw a comic drawing event on tumblr for January, so I'm gonna try and participate! *U*9
Though I wonder if I should be doing other stuff, though;;; OH WELL...

External Image
Cleaned up sketch that I finished the other day! Gonna try and color this once I get back home and have a scanner, since I haven't done a finished pic of any of my characters in a while. ;o
I forgot Dmitri's tuft of hair in front of his hat when I took this picture, but I added it in. I KNOW YOU WERE JUST SO WORRIED ABOUT IT, SO... never fear. B)

Okay yeah, that's all I've got. Might start working on thumbnailing comic pages or studying vocab, since I have time before bed. :^D Thanks for viewing!

Stuffie Stuff

YO, sorry for not posting here in a while. orz I just kept forgetting. ;u;/ Here's some draws I've done.

External Image
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

External Image
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;;

External Image
A classmate commissioned me to do a watercolor painting for them! I got 35 bucks. B)

External Image
Was practicing drawing Prue a little while ago. I tried using colors I don't usually use, but idk. PURPLE! YELLOW! TEAL-ISH...??

External Image
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...)

External Image
Some SteGabe. I SHOULD DO A NICE FINISHED STEGABE DRAWING, THAT'S WHAT I SHOULD DO...

External Image
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.

External Image
Chibi of Brady from Fire Emblem that I did for someone on tumblr. :u

External Image
Chibi of Inigo from Fire Emblem that I also did for someone on tumblr. :uu

External Image
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. (?????)

Rando Drawings

Back again with more stuff. >:Y

External Image
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.

External Image
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.

External Image
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;;;)

External Image
Gaboooooooo. His chin's a little too long, but I like how this came out. -u-/

External Image
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.

External Image
I just drew this to match the above drawing, I don't really like it as much. .3.

External Image
I tried drawing Estelle. I like her album "Shine", that's about all the songs of hers that I know.

External Image
Something I drew for a class, Idk what it's really supposed to mean. -u-/;;;;

YEP YEP. I need to do work. """"orz

STUFF BRO

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...

External Image
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;/

External Image
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-/

External Image
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...;;)

External Image
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;>

External Image
More Dmitri. This is where I finally started to understand how to draw his hair. >:U

External Image
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-/

External Image
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.

External Image
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.)

External Image
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.

External Image
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

Comics/Etc: Lafayette and Dmitri

HEY, I did a lot of random stuff with Lafayette and Dmitri, yesterday. :^Y Idk why, but I’ve been thinking about them lately and think they’re actually pretty interesting…!!! Honestly, I never expected to do much with Dmitri… although, I had some stuff with him and Jessica planned, which was somewhat interesting... but I never got around to drawing it. (Which I will eventually maybe, aha;;) But since I ended up making Lafayette Dmitri’s childhood friend (I CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER WHEN AND WHY I DECIDED THAT HAHA), I feel like I understand Dmitri a little bit better since I’ve thought about his childhood a bit. So yeah, I’ve been thinking about Lafayette and Dmitri’s backstories.

ALTHOUGH,
I’M STILL NOT REALLY SURE IF A LOT OF THIS STUFF IS CANON… My main issue with coming up with backstory stuff between Dmitri and Lafayette is Lafayette’s gender;;; As far as Nerdy and Jock goes, I kind of want to keep Lafayette’s birth gender ambiguous, or even leaning toward female since Dmitri uses feminine pronouns with him. But yeah, creating a concrete backstory for Lafayette and Dmitri will kind of demystify Lafayette’s birth gender… so idk, maybe this isn’t cannon, I haven’t decided. WHO KNOWS.

But anyway, here’s some comics. I’m gonna be revealing a lot of stuff THAT MIGHT BE CANON BUT MAYBE NOT here, which might be a problem ‘cause I might make a short oneshot comic about Lafayette and Dmitri. SO IF YOU DON’T WANT SPOILERS… IDK… WHO CARES ABOUT SPOILERS THOUGH AHAH.

Anyway, I’ll start with the childhood ones, since that’s what I was blabbing about up there. :U

External Image
LAF AND DMITRI AS CHILDREN.
This is like the first conversation they ever had… Idk how old they are, I think this is like the summer before 4th or 5th grade. Lafayette’s family moved next door to Dmitri’s before the two of them started 5th grade. It’s canon that Lafayette is Japanese, btw, no dispute about that. :U He’s fluent in English now, but I think he mostly spoke Japanese to his mom before moving here (though idk where he went to school and stuff before moving to Nerdy and Jock land.)

HONESTLY… I JUST REVERSE-ENGINEERED LAFAYETTE’S ORIGINAL ENGLISH NAME FROM DMITRI’S NICKNAME FOR HIM… Originally I was trying to find a Japanese name that had “rafu” in it, but of course that didn’t exist. So I just went with Raphael, ‘cause whatever. He didn’t start going by Lafayette until middle school-ish (IF THIS IS CANON). Also, sorry if it seems like I’m making fun of Lafayette’s accent, here, ‘cause I’m not trying to;;;

Dmitri had such a generic short spikey hairstyle as a young babe. Lafayette’s mom’s always let Lafayette wear skirts and dresses, btw. (Though he also wore tutus and ridiculous costume stuff to elementary school like a NERD WHAT THE HECK’S WITH THAT)

External Image
More things of them as kids. The top one’s of Dmitri when he’s in middle school. THAT ONE OF LAFAYETTE ON THE RIGHT LOOKS WAY TOO YOUNG.

Dmitri didn’t find out Lafayette’s biologically a boy (IF THIS IS EVEN CANON) until school started, where at some point they had to break off into groups between boys and girls. Although, Dmitri still thought (/thinks) of Laf as a girl ‘cause that’s just what he was used to. (And even as a kid, Laf didn’t really care if he was a girl or a boy to people.) …idk what I’m saying here, I feel like I’m being confusing. WHATEVZZZZZZZZZZZZ

ALSO, Dmitri and Lafayette used to like playing pretend a lot (what I called “The Game” up there ‘cause whatever), when they were little. (This is actually kinda based on my own childhood, haha. I used to really like playing pretend with my sisters and friends. We called it “The Game of Games.”)
Lafayette’s very into taking on different personas, it’s really fun for him. :U Even as he got older, he just wanted to play all the time (which is kind of why he’s really into acting, now). Dmitri thinks it’s fun to play, too, but he started to get self-conscious in middle school when everyone wanted to start growing up and be adults. It was ‘cause of this that sometime in middle school Lafayette and Dmitri started to drift apart. In high school, Dmitri didn’t really talk to Lafayette as much because he joined and made friends on the football team, while Lafayette spent most of his time in drama club.

It’s worth noting that any sort of COMING OF AGE DRAMA AND POTENTIAL BULLYING goes away in high school, because Nerdy and Jock takes place at a mysteriously beautiful and kind high school. (??? I just want to avoid drama like in A Life Like This when I draw Nerdy and Jock). Personally, I think it’s because Brodney is there and is just SUCH A GOOD HUMAN… A GOOD ROLE MODEL FOR ALL. And since he’s the most popular/known person in school, almost everyone just follows his example. (??? UNREASONABLE, BUT WHO CARES. I LOVE BRODNEY.)

Okay, I’m confusing myself, idk what I’m talking about. NEXT DRAWING.

External Image
Laf and Dmitri eventually reunited as friends during Nerdy and Jock… idk really why it happened, but hey whatever. DMITRI… IS SUCH A BABY, IDK WHY THIS HAPPENED…
Lafayette is so short, though. He’s 5’2, btw, while Dmitri’s 6’1. LAFAYETTE LOOKS SO YOUNG…

**KIND OF WEIRD (?) TALK, MAYBE: I WAS THINKING… MAYBE LAFAYETTE HAS THAT THING WHERE YOU DON’T FULLY GO TROUGH PUBERTY…?
Originally, I kind of perceived Lafayette as like… a eunuch, I guess. But considering there’s no reasonable ethical way for him to be a eunuch (besides being born without reproductive organs which is extremely rare), I got bored and looked up stuff about delayed puberty/etc. Initially I was wondering about Kallmann Syndrome (??), but I’m looking up stuff online again and I’m thinking the less-specific “hypogonadism” is probably more accurate to Lafayette… and is also not associated with specific health-threatening complications. (also this might be kind of immature of me, but I’m so surprised that “gonad” is a technical term.) ANYWAY.

But yeah, I feel like if Lafayette has hypogonadism, it could explain a number of things… including why Lafayette is so short and youthful-looking, his gender ambiguity (to a degree), and also why he’s disinterested in sex. (I know these things don’t need specific genetic explanation or anything, but it’s just what I was thinking about.)
Regardless, I don’t feel like it’s something Lafayette would ever get officially diagnosed for, because experiencing TROO PYOOBERTY isn’t a big deal to him.**
ANYWAY MOVING ON.

External Image
Some losers. Dmitri is Lafayette’s biggest fan. ALSO THESE TWO ART BOTH POTTY MOUTHS… I know Dmitri’s not swearing here, but he does…………. He’s also just rude in general. They’re both rude. Rude fools.
TOO BAD I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SWEARING AHAHAHSLDFKJ “”orz I just write based on my intuition, but I can’t help but feel it’s ALL! UNNATURAL!!!!

External Image
Some random comic where Dmitri wants to have a sleepover with Laf for the first time in a while. SEE, I TOLD YOU DMITRI WAS A POTTY MOUTH TOO….
Idk if it wasn’t already obvious, but Dmitri’s usually pretty self-conscious and concerned with his image and being normal (or specifically, not-weird). He’s embarrassed here because he feels like it’s not normal for a teenage boy and a teenage girl to sleep in the same bed without any implications (even though literal sleeping is all they’re doing.) Idk. I’M SO BAD AT TALKING ABOUT MY CHARACTERS, THESE DAYS!!!!

External Image
Last one. It’s so brief. I’VE TALKED SO MUCH ALREADY, I’M SO SORRY…!!!
There’s actually more to this conversation here, maybe I’ll draw it later. BUT YEAH, it is canon for Lafayette’s Japanese name to be Ritsu. Originally it was going to be Ryuuichi, but Ritsu’s apparently androgynous. So there you go. Bluh. I’m so tired of talking.
Laf doesn’t care if people call him Ritsu, but he somewhat prefers Lafayette.

I WISH I HAD A NICE CONCLUSIVE WAY TO END THIS, BUT TOOOOOO BAD.
HERE’S THIS DUMP OF UNORGANIZED INFORMATION ABOUT MY CHARACTERS. If something didn't make sense... maybe ask questions, if you're interested....... /WEIRD STATEMENT

I feel like this post would be more organized if it was arranged in like a questionnaire format, haha. xD; SOMETIMES IT'S EASIER TO SAY SOMETHING IF YOU KNOW THE QUESTION YOU HAVE TO ANSWER!
