Yeah, this one still comes back to me every now and then but too many of my friends draw girls with this same hair length and color. XD They're not even asian or female! O: I was basing this off of myself.

Ah ha ha ha XD But its still really cool ya know. That's okay, Vera will always be her unique own self. If you think about hairstyle and colour, then a lotta characters out there have that, but it's their personality and unique characteristics that set them apart..which in a way can be a bit of a problem as I suppose you have to think of a certain characteristic to make your character somewhat unique? Hmm, yeah I guess they aren't XD Yeah sometimes I do that. I myself have short messy hair and usually my favourite characters (drawn by me) will have short hair XD I definitely see whatcha mean. So will you be making a character sheet of Vera? :I

This is just awesome on so many different levels.the colours for one and then her expression...like totally awesome
:D

Also love how you kept the background really simple, (empty really) which nicely contrasts with the character.

mmhmm

Aww thanks very much! :D
Yeah, I really like this piece too.. I would have loved to put that sort of outfit into a story somehow but it doesn't really mesh with the kinds of ideas I had been brewing recently.

you're very welcome
Aha ha, well you could always try making a story specially suited to characters wearing these sorta outfits.

But I can see what you mean, it gets pretty tough for me to come up with a plot and so I hardly get around to designing characters and stuff...even though I'd like to. I do come up with ideas, but its just that I can never decide on an ending or how the story will progress.

Yeah I thought about it.. scifi is really hard when you're new to the genre; it's weird XD

Plots are really hard to come up with, I agree! So much conceptualizing, revisioning and research!
One thing that always helps me is to think of a theme for the plot. A theme's job is to enlighten the reader, whereas the plots DRIVE the theme with a sequence of events. If there isn't a theme, then the story is not really a story but.. a sequence of events. Haha.
Another thing that helps me is that I draw characters and then base a story around them. I'm a visual person, so I have to see characters first before I know what they do. What are stories really about, anyway? Answer: it's about the character. ;)

yep
totally

Mmmhm. Yeah, and even when I do come up with an idea, I just cant seem to come up with an ending and even when I do come up with one..somehow I cant seem to be facing it.. >.<
Weird huh.

I like the way you think. I'll try that. Thanks!
I guess it really is about the character...its the characters that makes the story what it is. Yeah me too, I actually start doodling and then get story ideas and stuff. And I should force myself to make proper and complete plots.

:iconnewglomp:

Thanks for the advice. Really appreciate it!

oh
Well its like this. For a story to progress, there has to be some sort of resistance in the plot..or something has to happen, that sort of catalyses the ending. In my case, supposing I've come up with an idea, I just can't seem to be making that something happen. I don't know, but I think stuff like, huh no that can't happen to my character..or something like that and it gets pretty hard for me to finish off a story.

So you see that way, I keep getting even more lazy and never get around to writing a proper plot.

Oh thanks a lot.
:)

Sometimes with plots, you have to go with the flow. Let the character do whatever he/she wants. The character is a being himself; he must have his own thoughts, his own willpower, his own actions. You can't force your own ideas or what you want for him to do (although [subconciously] you could influence him.)
Sometimes the character has to die in the end whether or not you want him to. Or sometimes he lives. A lot of authors have had to go through heart wrenching endings because they're too attached to the character to see him die.. but what can you do? Just like with life, you can't simply stop things. Just let it go.

The only thing with this is that plots sometimes go nowhere, but it's a lot of trial and error. Like an RPG game I guess. haha
Keep trying I believe in you! :D

Mmm I'm not sure yet actually. She's part of a crew of something that's always on the go, maybe in the pursuit of something? A goal to build something or.. to find someone? I'm not really sure. XD

Probably something related to another character of mine. I'm starting to think of a story between the two of them, it's pretty exciting haha. I'll draw him next so that you know who I'm talking about hahah. :3
