Concepts & Sketches

Some recent sketches and things!

This is my character, Nari.

And then this was a drawing I did with some inspiration from another artist.

First Official "Eventures"

So these were the first two Eventures where we officially came up with the name Eventure. These were the first ones where we actually wrote them out using mIRC too, so that's where it all started. And they are still done that way to this day.

The Nays arrive in a mysterious new World called C R I M. Their airship is ambushed by a dragon, so they crash land in a desert where they meet Sally Bullrider. 

The Nays crash land on Time Fabric Island where they are ambushed by Leopold. Veetoff takes it upon himself to kill Leopold after a fight though.

Digimon Doodles

I just beat Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth last night! Overall a really great game.

I digivolved my Mega Seadramon into a Plesiomon and he was really good. He ended up being one of the ones that saved me in the final boss.

These were some various Digimon doodles I did after work one day.

Nays Reuniting

Some Eventures where The M and S Nays are about to come back together (soon).

 After Haru starts his training with Gair, he reveals that his son Gallu wants Gair to be the next World Leader of PS World once Haru is gone.

When The Nays are returning back to the main part of Tag World, Elfno runs into Kaenah, who reveals that he is related to one of Elfno's friends.

Redone Eventures

Fun fact: We didn't take the Shard of the Orient Eventure out of the Ducklin Returns Eventure folder until about a year after it was finished. Because that meant renumbering EVERYTHING afterwards! I finally did it like a week or so ago because it had to be done.

 Piko returns and reveals that he is now an M Nay. Shortly after, his sworn enemy Ducklin makes his appearance.

After being found on a Linkship, Lt. Talcum takes The Nays in for questioning. Boney doesn't remember what Yaro's name is and only makes his situation worse.

Lunch Break Doodles

Yesterday I doodled a few characters during my lunch break since I had ate faster than usual.

Back on Track

After a detour of drawing earlier Eventures that I meant to draw more of, I am now back in the present of drawing them in order!

When The Nays enter the Demon World, a demon named Snull takes a liking to Ralphie.

Topaz and the other Nays witness Z murder Bobby in The Gek World.

Digimon Doodles!

So I got Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth from the library and it's REALLY GOOD! I've never played a Digimon game this good before. This game really reminds me of a mix between Persona 4, .hack, Pokemon, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions. And then the beginning had major Summer Wars vibes. So I'm really enjoying it a lot!! Especially because I was not expecting it to be this good. All of the Digimon games I have tried in the past were not so great, so my expectations were pretty low, haha.

I just digivolved my DemiDevimon into Devimon.

And Patamon is one of my favorites. I have Angemon on my main team!

Timer Afterwards Sketches

Back-tracking a bit since I realized there were technically four different parts of Timer Afterwards, so I should probably draw all of those individually.

This is on Inferno Colony #3 where Veetoff is training Gojo so that they can survive.

Ted is lost in an illusion when he finds out that he is Shaw's imaginary friend.

Here are some things that I've drawn for other people recently.

This was for my friend Jinny since she drew my character!

So my regional manger set out a drawing challenge and I couldn't resist participating. I think I may have gotten a little carried away though.

Akuma & Haru

These are getting to the times where I used to write stories to progress The Nays (known as The Worlds at the time). Some parts of these were even written in notebooks if I remember correctly.

Akuma rescues Sarah from Trekkon after her Dark Vaiyo powers are awakened. 

After Cipo kills a criminal in PS World, Harukame (the World Leader) lectures him.

ComiPo Fun!

So about a week or so ago, I tried out this new program called ComiPo. It lets you create your own characters and create comics about them using some pre-made assets. This was a fun little activity that I did one day. Even if the assets were very limited, so I didn't get to make them look quite like my characters.

 This was my first test. I made them talk in their own fonts and colors, also. This includes Zandra, Gair, and Mar.
And then this one was a bit more planned. This one's about Piko, Kali, and Clove.

And then I decided to quickly throw sounds in and and turn it into a mini-motion comic in Premiere.
(Sorry for the bad quality, I didn't upload this anywhere else!)

Before Things Get Serious

These are the two last official Eventures that were done before stories/Eventures happened! Also this is the part of the story where we said it would turn into The Nays Z or The Nays Shippuuden, haha. Like when things get more serious, but it's not an actual time skip, if that makes sense?

 The Nays come face-to-face with the destruction of Timer World.

While Zandra is playing a video game, Gojo climbs up on her back and keeps on annoying her. The Nays also participate in the Master Bird Tournament and meet Bram and Ram, the Baron sisters.

Seraph of the End

I haven't seen a new anime that was really good and kept me extremely interested since like... I don't even know. It's probably been 10 years though. But I have been really enjoying Seraph of the end.

For those of you who have seen Seraph of the End, you probably recognize this quote. Yuu is probably my favorite character, even though in the first episode I was certain it was going to be Mika.

And this here is the whole cast!

Clove, Muyo, and Sarah

I'm getting to the Eventures where Clove, Sarah, and Kominushu were main. And when they came and really started to become friends. I like drawing all three of them a lot, so that's good!

Clove and Ralphie get into an argument, so she ends up running off on her own. It takes Ralphie awhile until he realizes she went missing, so when he texts her later, she isn't even happy about it.

Muyo finally finds his childhood friend Sarah and gives her a big hug to celebrate (though she hates hugs).

Nays 2084 Preview - Storyboard Animatic Complete!

This is a project that I've been working on recently. It was inspired by my brother's animation that he did back in 2008, where it was a preview of stuff in The Nays that was to come that year. This one is about what is to come in the next year of eventures (in their year, which is 2084). Some of these things may happen in 2085 though, since some is very far future, but close enough!

On another note, this is still in the rough stages, but I finally finished drawing all of the storyboards so I wanted to compile what I had together so far. Sounds are still very rough/unedited, and I haven't added sound effects yet. But the timing is pretty solid for what I'm planning for the final. Same with the compositions. 

I also want to point out that a couple of the scenes towards the beginning were drawn at least two years ago, so that's why some of these look a bit lower quality than others. Those are also the ones that have old recorded sounds that are probably gonna be redone when I get time to.

But overall this has been fun and I'm excited to start working on the actual animating! It's taken about 8 hours and 30 minutes so far for the drawing, compiling, and recording parts. But I'm a lot happier with this than I was with my previous animatics for this project and others.

Yaro & Squidwik

Some recent Eventure Doodles!

 Amber and Murou are ambushed by a gang, but luckily their leader Yaro turns out to be a pretty nice guy.

Grenna returns to his home World and reunites with his childhood guard and friend, Squidwik.

Rocko Comic

Last weekend I was in the mood for making a comic, so I decided to choose a journal entry that I wrote and turn it into a comic page. You can read this whole entry here.

Here's the final comic page!

This is the very last part of the journal entry, so you'll have to read it to get a bit of context.

But since I haven't done something this finished in a long time, here's the process I went through!

So I started out by drawing a bunch of comic layouts to figure out which scene I actually wanted to do. 

I decided on which journal entry I wanted to do and just started sketching it out from the beginning (pretty much).

I decided to go with the last one.

And then I cleaned up the sketch so it had a lot more details. I also put in some of the final text.

I drew in clean lines for all of the panels.

And then I put in some base colors.

And then came the shading!

And finally I blurred some parts to create a focus, and added a sound effect to the first panel.
