Anybody up for a little group storytelling?

i have a LOT on my plate this summer, but I’m craving a fun, fluffy summer project!

Anyone wanna make a character for a webcomic?

All I know so far is it includes Leap and Pip, two royal kids who hang out together and solve mysteries/fight bad guys. Leap’s from the winter kingdom, Pip’s from the summery one, and they’re best friends! Also a recurring bad guy is Professor Doombringer, but haven’t drawn him yet cuz i’m currently finishing up a li’l project!

Totally open to there being other kingdoms/species of character/even having these dudes not be the main characters!

hm

funny coincidences!

I work at a Adobe and Tech help desk at USC, and we get some questions about wordpress sometimes. One girl came in with some URL issues, and I was trying to show her what a normal post permalink should look like and I was like oh god, what’s a wordpress site I could use?

dogs.wordpress.com

That was me, tryin’ my best.

I’m also trying to do some daily sketches! Idk if I should post them all here cuz that feels spammy, but I just like STOPPED drawing because of thesis panic. We just pitched today (Mine got approved!!) and it’s a relief to have the pressure off… but still, there’s a very long way to go.

So here’s day 1. Sorry world.

oops

HI ALL!!

COLLEGE HAS BEEN CHAOTIC RECENTLY!!

How is the COLLEGE SEARCH going for all y’all who are on it?? i hope everything is going well!

Halloween hit… and it hit hard. I had 4 costumes (see ’em here!), participated in a 10PM-10AM shoot in a comic store, and saw an advanced screening of Trolls! (I really enjoyed it!)

Also corgi beach day. MY FAVORITE!

Anyway, story-wise, I’ve actually started trying to think of stuff for my Thesis film! Here’s just a couple bullet points, let me know what you guys think/like best!

-Fire girl?
Story about a girl who’s got fire powers and an explosive temper. about learning to control yourself and be responsible for your own actions.

-The Six Swans
That fairy tale where the girl’s brothers get cursed and she has to knit them sweaters. Maybe with sisters instead of brothers to personalize it. i dunno i just like that story!

-puzzles
an hour long video of my roommate solving puzzles

These are the 2 things I know I want:

-MUSICAL NUMBERS

-a girl with really long flowy hair

What are some stories y’all have been cooking up?

QUICK RECESS

SORRY for being so inactive!! GAH the past week’s been insane! A couple weird/notable things that have happened:

  1. I made $30+ in tips for 3 days in a row
  2. I was told I “look like an english scholar, and probably get good grades on all my essays” (I hope it’s a prediction, not just a statement–I’ve got a writing class to take in the spring!)
  3. I was offered a job somewhere else… while working at my current job (I didn’t take it, I’m only here for another week)
  4. MY EMBROIDERY MACHINE CAME!!

I’ll add pics later, my phone is kind of poopy atm so getting pics to and from is a nightmare

But I have a big deadline coming up, so I may not be very active still for the next 2-3 days. But after that, I should be good to go! 😀

What are some weird/notable things that have happened to you this week?

 

YAY!!

1) Sorry for being so inactive! I’ve been working full time as of late because I’m one of two employees who aren’t on vacation right now 😄

2) I FINISHED MY FIRST SUMMER SEWING PROJECT!!
I really wanted overalls, but I wanted something very specific:
PUPPY PRINT OVERALLS!
My friend and I headed over to the fabric store about 2 weeks ago and found some puppy fabric. I’ve been working on them for the past week or so, and VIOLA! They’re finally finished!

This is definitely the most work I’ve put into a sewing project in a while! Most of the stuff I make is just costumes I don’t plan on wearing very often, so the task of enforcing the seams get kind of haphazardly disregarded. I do plan on wearing these a lot, though, so I spent a lot of time trying to make sure they had good, sturdy construction!

3) THE WEBSITE LOOKS GREAT YOU GUYZ!! I really like it! 😀

I’m currently trying to finish up a lot of work for one of my projects so I can send out an update, but after that I’ll have some time to get started on stories and such! I have 2 days off this week and am not working any double shifts, so my schedule should be a lot more relaxed!

Have you guys ever wanted a really specific, weird article of clothing? If so, how did you go about finding/making it?

Yeehaw Cowboys

OK, so here’s a story idea i’ve actually been working on with my friend for quite some time!

A gang of bank robbers in the wild west vs the sherrif’s team.

I thought it could be fun to create characters for it!! (Mainly because the characters in it are totally based on my friend’s and my IRL friends LOL!)

The only important existing characters are:

BANDIT TEAM:

As a rule, they don’t kill… typically. They originated in the wild, wild towns of California, but after an unfortunately fatal incident and an unexpected betrayal, they were forced to move east, to the wilderness of Wyoming.

Rosie (“The Girl”) and Daisy (“The Wild Card”)

Rosie:

 

Rosie is the… “Distraction”. She’s a very good actress, and is very good at playing “confused pretty woman 27” or “damsel in distress 38” while simultaneously planning the incapacitation of the gentlemen assisting her. Level headed and quiet, she may seem like just “the girl”, but is usually the mastermind. She proceeds with caution, loves to have a plan, and loves it even MORE when everything goes according to it!

Daisy:

She’s Rosie’s best friend, and isn’t allowed to have live ammo. She’s not crazy, she’s just a little… reckless.And a bad shot. Wild, fearless, and stubborn as they come, she strikes fear into the hearts of meek bank tellers with one wild-eyed look. While actually quite capable of being a manipulative, cunning strategist, she prefers to figure it out as she goes and break as many rules as she can, while she’s at it.

SHERIFF TEAM:

By law, they don’t kill people… unless they want to. They were your typical Wild West law enforcement–corrupt, lazy, or ill-respected… until a newcomer came with a vendetta, a list of names, and a plan.

Sheriff Billy Barlow:

An ambitious, fresh-faced young officer sent to the Wyoming law enforcement from California. A stickler to the bone, he does everything by the book. He lacks confidence, but doesn’t let it affect his decisiveness in the field. His work is his life, and he’s a hard and dedicated worker. But sometimes his ambition gets the best of him–he’s not afraid to burn a few bridges to get what he wants, even if it means letting people get hurt.

(no drawing cos i have work in 7 hours lol. but let me know what you think!!)

Re-Introduction (Old Lady Style)

Hello, the name’s Katie, I go by Nireth, but you may remember me as the one who’s way too old to be here.

I try not to look at my old post, but I think the most embarrassing part has got to be my old art.

Ouch

I’m now 20, but people still think I’m in middle school (true stories). I’m gonna be a Junior Animation + Digital Arts major at University of Southern California, and omg i love my life!

I like dogs, sparkly things, and buying cryptic (vaguely threatening) t-shirts from thrift stores, animated TV shows and movies, drawing, and making goofy projects!

I REALLY love the band Eisley and I’m still embarrassingly into Dutch symphonic rock bands (Delain being my fave–Leaves’ Eyes is tied but they’re Norwegian so they don’t count).

I WOULD LOVE IT IF WE COULD KEEP WRITING STORIES!!

-we could do more BotB stuff (i have a new badass story arc for nireth planned, in which she will not be a whimpering sissy because i’ve learned that you can have a cool character and not auto-god mod)

-we could do something new! (i like the we all create characters things idk why. probably because i’m to lazy to create my own WHOOPS THERE IT IS)

AND ALSO HIT ME UP IF YOU WANT ANY ILLUSTRATIONS DONE FOR YOURS!!

That’s all for now!! BUT I AGREE WITH BOTH OF YOU
I DONT THINK THE BLOG HAS SEEN ITS LAST BREATH
AND I WANNA START WRITING AGAIN
LETS DO THIS!
