Develop Your Story / 12 Starlit Gems
« on: March 23, 2019, 07:46:25 PM »
This post is going to be very long, because this is an idea that I’ve had for a long time, and it’s gone through several modifications. I’m going to go back and edit this post frequently. Feel free to ask questions, or post suggestions. I just wanted to know if it was too similar to Sailor Moon or other magical girl series.


Synopsis:

A 14-year old Gemini girl named Misty Tash, nicknamed “Trash Bag” by her classmates always wanted to be someone better than herself—someone prettier, thinner, more athletic, outgoing, and fair skinned. One day, she finds out several new things about her life. First of all, her name isn’t even Misty Tash, it’s Claira Stelling. But more importantly, she can transform and gain elemental powers based on her Sun signs attribute. In her case, the stars. She becomes a gorgeous blonde Birthnkight named Estrella Alexandrite. Life seems like it would be much better...but then it becomes so much worse. The Birthknights have a reputation for destroying property and the environment, and a lack of teamwork. Now that her inner thoughts are blurted out without reservation, she finds it difficult to get along with her fellow Birthknights. And she discovers that people everywhere are dying because they stand out in society. But only she and the other Birthknights know who is really killing them.



The Orgin of the Birthknights: In ancient times, a genderless divine being called Celestis visited a man stranded in a desert. He was exiled from being different. Celestis rescued the man and brought him to a different civilization. The first Birthknight was created.

I did some research on birthstones, and I found something about the Breastplate of Aaron, which is one of my inspirations. The Stones on the Breastplate will shine brighter the more the Birthknight exhibits that quality both in and outside of transformation. But when a Birthknight dies, the gem turns black and dull, like charcoal.

Naming: The given names of human identities of the Birthknights are the quality of their personalities, and their last names are named after their elements. Earth names are the easiest, and the most plentiful. Water names are usually bodies of water, or fish, or even blood. Air names are usually after birds, since air names are not very common. The hardest and least common names to find are fire names, so I usually go with last names that mean sun, lighting, or warmth.

Superpowers: The powers will be in the same element family as the Birthknight’s Sun Sign. If a Birthknight practices the attribute his or her birthstone that they need to show the most, then their powers will be amplified and their corresponding birthstone on the Gem Plate will shine. If all 12 birthstones shine consistently at the same time, they could summon a great power.




Main Protagonist:
Misty Tash, aka. Claira Stelling (“Shrouded in mist” and “Ash tree”, and then “Clear” and “Star”. Basically, the name she has been given is the wrong element.) Birthday: 06/06/2006. She was adopted as a baby and given the name Misty. The only information that was left behind was a piece of paper with her birthday on it. She lives with an overbearing father, whose word is law, so she’s afraid to express herself and develop her own personality. Her father has several affairs with shallow women, so she has no strong female role models as a mother. The only relative she really got along with was her sister, 10 years older than her. But her sister committed suicide. But when 6-year-old Claira found the body, she discovered that it was sparkling. What she didn’t know at the time was that her sister was a Birthknight turning into stardust.

Side characters:

Aria Nespola (“First song of the opera”, “Tree”) Birthday: 05/08/1998. One of the few survivors of the last Birthknight team. She is a vegetarian, and animal lover, and an Eclectic Wiccan. She was opposed to Claira changing herself so much, and she worries about her, almost like another sister. She is currently living with her father, even though she has a teaching job. She was a very early bloomer in her childhood, and tallest in her family, even though she is the youngest, and she is uncomfortable about the attention she gets. That is why she asked to be young forever during transformation.

Alfred Petroski: (“Gentle”, “Stone”) Birthday: 09/14/1999 Is just an intern, but he possesses a great knowledge about psychology and first aid. But for the time being, he isn’t allowed to use it in front of his superiors. He’s criticized for being the brother of the principal. He is trying to overcome all of his own psychological difficulties. His other skill is cooking, and although he wasn’t allowed to pursue it as a career, he is still very talented. He is short and feminine, and he used want nothing more than to be strong and tall like his older brother. He has a lifelong crush on Aria.

Herman Petroski: Birthday: 01/10/1996 He has always been a genius since childhood. Because of that, he had great expectations on his shoulders. He stopped believing in Santa at 5, entered high school at 12, and graduated from high school at 16. He lost a leg as a boy, and although he is the physically strongest of the Birthknights, wished to get it back. He is sarcastic and cold, but he harbors a lot of secrets, especially about his sexuality. He will be represented by Garnet. His powers are very strength based, as in, he can lift more heavy objects and destroy even sturdy foundations rather than conjure up an element.

Ekaterina Cejkowski: Birthday: 10/09/2005 She is seemingly perfect. She’s on the cheerleading team, she gets straight A’s, and she’s a social butterfly. In reality, she’s done nothing but obey all her life—the rules of school, the censored and biased textbooks, and the rules of social life. She’s very dismissive and critical towards Claira, even though Claira believes that they are friends. She’s very apathetic towards people she doesn’t like. I’m giving her pink tourmaline as her representative birthstone because there is already a white color, and opal is hard for me to illustrate. There’s so many other colors, but without pink, it wouldn’t be complete.

Joelle Quaine 07/09/2006 She’s very short and child-like. Her hobbies and sports are very feminine—sewing and gymnastics. She will show her emotions at any moment, but not care about who she’s disturbing. She likes to cling to best friends and her step-sister. Her image color will be red, just like a ruby.

Valerie Hawke (Actually, her last name was Crane, but I’m undecided.) 02/11/2008 She’s a sharp tongued 7th grader who’s into debating, karate, and skateboarding. She’s the tallest in her grade, and usually mistaken for an older boy. Not that she totally minds, because she hates girly things with a passion—so much that she’s overzealous about it. Maybe I was thinking about slowly turning her into a FTM—maybe the phobia of feminine things kind of reflects that. But she still needs to learn to let other people have their choices too. She has a fierce rivalry with Tom Binley because she has a stubborn sense of justice. She actually likes to be different, but just because she flaunts her uniqueness doesn’t mean she’s not insecure. She hates being mollycoddled and clung to by her stepsister.




Love interests (Just because they are in the love interest category, doesn’t mean that they will become a canon couple with the main character):

Eric Binley - 04/06/2005

Devin Mizushima - 03/08/2007

Delilah Van Vuuren - 12/03/2004


Antiheroes:

Mary Elizabeth “Mari” Bloodborne - 11/08/2005

Tom Binley (may change his name) - 08/07/04




Antagonists:

The Servants of Oblivion - Like a Birthknight, a person can only be an Antiknight by birth. However, they were created in response to some Birthknights being corrupted in the ancient past. Their ultimate goal is to make humans all the same. They use elemental powers to kill from individuals to even thousands of humans at once. When a human is killed by a Servant of Oblivion, they turn into a perfectly obedient droid...with the same power as the one who killed them. Droids can’t be killed by ordinary humans or animals, or accidents. But if the droid dies either by a Servant or a Birthknight, then the original person who was turned into a droid is forgotten forever.

Develop Your Story / Princess Adellina’s Magic Dress
« on: March 20, 2019, 07:31:59 PM »
Hi, I just got this idea fresh in my mind. It’s intended for all/most ages.

There’s a princess who was born with a power to ward off a poison dragon. But if she uses that power, she’ll become weak. She was exposed to the dragon’s poison, so she became paralyzed.

The queen, who doesn’t have powers, but loves her daughter so much, went on a journey herself to cure the princess, but she was put under a spell and fell into a coma.

A fairy comes and gives the princess a magic dress that will help the princess travel even if she’s paralyzed. They go on a quest to find a cure for the queen.

Right now, I don’t even have names for the characters. I think that the princess should be about 8-10 years old, because this story is supposed to appeal to children. And it’s the age where children’s thinking becomes more logical and moral than previous stages. She begins to develop her own morals and a desire to help her mother and her kingdom. I’m going to portray the family as extremely loving, unlike most of the ideas I have that are based on my childhood experiences of being oppressed. I want children to feel like they can help their parents.

The dress is supposed to be a reference to Lolita fashion or EGL fashion, because I’m into Lolita fashion. It’s a type of Harajuku fashion that was inspired by Victorian and Rococo era clothing. And sometimes it has a very kawaii and fairy tale aesthetic aspect to it.

Welcome Center / Hi! Experienced artist looking for more help.
« on: March 17, 2019, 04:59:50 AM »
Hi, everyone. I was taught how to draw from a very early age, and I wanted to be a cartoonist ever since elementary school. I went to the Art Institute to study media arts and animation, but I quit. I then went to finish up community college, but then I quit. I’m done with the American school system for the rest of my life, and I really don’t want to send any children I may have there, if I can help it.

I suffer from PSTD, depression, OCD, borderline, and generalized anxiety. My OCD affects my creativity and my daily activities a lot.

-My most liked J-media is at the moment, Sailor Moon, the Yu-Gi-Oh series, Osomatsu-san, Love Live, Vocaloid, Death Note, and the Kingdom Hearts series. I’m actually finding a lot of things wrong with everything I watch these days, and I watched a lot of stuff from the late 90’s to 2010’s. I usually like series and characters that are less popular. I like character designs that are a bit weird, but expressive. I like storylines that make me think about life, philosophy, and how others should treat each other.

-My favorite live action show is Drunk History.

-My favorite movies are Disney movies, Titanic, and Breaking Dawn part 1 and 2. Bad choices, I know.

To be honest, I hate reading. I get bad memories from elementary school about my reading abilities. I really try to avoid book snobs like the plague. Most of what I do read is non-fiction and news articles.

I don’t ever talk about music. Everywhere I go, there’s a music elitist. It brings me back bad memories about the relentless bullies in high school that only picked on my music tastes and my ugliness.

-My previous Deviant Art accounts were Yami-Dorkus, and then AmaiMochi. I haven’t been to Deviant Art for three years. It’s been a toxic place.

My Instagram is kagahime.

*Link removed* This is my facebook page.

I’m drawing a little after not wanting to draw for years because of my personal issues, and a lot of other experiences that happened to me along the way. I’m still not a professional after all these years, and I never went around to drawing the idea that I had since junior high/high school. I’m afraid that it’s too similar to other series that became popular, but I can’t think of anything else.

I don’t have all the tools I need right now. I’m living on my own, and it’s hard for me to afford anything but the basic needs. I’m trying as quickly as I can, but I’m worried that my work isn’t going to look as refined as I want.
