Sketchdump - Jay by devliann Sketchdump - Jay by devliann
It's been a long time since I uploaded anything to DA... They've even changed the submission process without me noticing! What is going on?! :fear:

Anyway. After not posting stuff forever, this is my offering. A sketchdump!

...:roll:

Yeah. So... these are some sketches I did in the run up to NaNoWriMo of my main character, Jayne "Jay" Hellmann, and her best friend Forrest Winslow. Almost all the pictures here are of Jay, except the one of the dude with the beard and the little boy in the mud - that's Forrest. I won't bore anyone with details of the story - I'm not entirely sure of all the details myself yet, anyway! But if you do want to know anything, just ask! I may even know the answer!

Characters *devliann etc. etc.

:iconcowboyplz::iconsaysplz:Yeehaw.

Aww! they're both so cute! I like how she's kind of boyish when she's little and grows more feminine as she ages. And the freckles are too adorable! ^^ Though I think that mud play scene is too cute! Gotta love little kids tossing mud. XD lol Love to hear the story around them. :3

And I feel you. I haven't been very active on here lately. >.>"

Ah, the pictures of her in a dress are just supposed to be of when she has to wear a dress - she stays tomboyish even when she's older, she's just not allowed to play in the mud any more! :XD:
I love kids playing in mud too - I think all kids should be allowed to get dirty. Heck, if I had kids I'd be positively encouraging it - I'd probably get in there with them!
The story so far is that Jay has run away from home because her older sister and all the people in town are trying to push her into getting married and generally being more feminine now that she's turned sixteen and isn't a little kid any more (the story is set in the old west, so I figured people would be a little bit more strict on how people acted back then), and she's wound up in a bit of trouble. She's currently travelling with a guy called Logan (he's actually my OC Taylor's uncle but I kind of stole him and sent him back in time, lol), because they had to leave town pretty sharpish after a bar brawl. I have no idea what's going to happen next though! Hopefully I'll actually write Forrest into it at some point - he was in a flashback at the start of the story, but then his family left for some made up county in Unnamed state, USA... :D

At least it's not just me neglecting DA! I do want to do some art, but I just don't have the time, between work and commissions and NaNo...

Gotta ask - is your icon of Gatomon, or is it just my imagination? I miss Digimon...

Oh, that makes sense. Heh it's too cute! ^^ Lil kids all covered in dirt. Heheh I know I always came home dirty from a long day of playing. lol

And that sounds interesting. LOL Stealing your character and sending him back in time XD I've been known to re-assign characters as well, though. And lmao 'some unnamed state in the USA' XD well if it's in the old west, more than likely Wyoming, Kansas, or somewhere around there.

And heheh yep, I know how it goes, man. I'm working on artwork, actually. Just have to finish it. And good luck to you. I know that's a lot to do. >.>'

HAHHAHAHHA Yes!! She's too great! And yep, it was a cool lil show. ;3

Hee! I'm glad you like her! I love freckles - they're just full of adorableness! :heart:
Forrest used to live near where Jay grew up with her dad, and they were pretty much inseperable until Forrest's family moved away when Jay was about twelve. She still misses him a lot though, especially as she has no other friends. She's travelling at the moment, and I'd like for her to be reunited with him again at some point in the story, but I'm yet to figure out how and when because I'm just making things up as I go along! ^^; How's your NaNo coming along?

They are! I actually will be redrawing one of mine and my brother's characters to give him freckles. We decided he should have some-- SO I'm pretty excited about that ~~

Awwww! And that's sad D: I'd love to hear how they reunite when you figure it out ^^ It seems so sweeeet <3

I'm behind on my nano =w=;; BUT I just stayed up and wrote over 2,000 more words. If I try and write 3,000-5,000 a day I'll be fine too SO I'm not too worried. Getting sick this month REALLY threw me off. BUT ah well. I'm staying optimistic! I can still do it!! Yours going well?

Hee! Which character is it that you'll be freckling up? I'm not familiar with all your characters yet but I'll happily hunt through your gallery and find them! I don't have enough characters with freckles...

I have about half a dozen ideas of how they could be reunited... Once I've picked one (or, more likely, made a completely different one up... :XD:), I'll let you know!

Aww... :( It's really frustrating when stuff like that happens and throws your plans off course. You go for it though, girl! :D Mine's going okay. I actually managaed to hit the word count today for the first time in ages! I'm kind of confused about the story though, and I'm almost certain it doesn't make sense any more, haha!

Hah-- he's one of our sort of ridiculous characters XD Tommy-- one of our "emo's". Our character Amelia has some freckles too though (: She's adorable ~~

I can't wait to find out how they are reunited <3 I'm sure it will be wonderful!!

I want to AT LEAST get to 20,000 words. I mean if I write like CRAZY I might be able to get to 40,000 but with all the hours I'm getting at work I don't know if that'll be possible >.>;;

I'll still work as hard as I can ~~

Hee! I don't think I've ever seen a freckly emo before - should be cute! I've tried finding him in your gallery and your joint one, and I can't... :tears: I guess I'll get to see the new design if you upload one though! :D

I'm really excited about it even though I still have no idea how it's going to happen! Jay's on her way to a ranch at the moment, so maybe he's there...? I don't know! It's like the story is writing itself, and I'm just trying to keep up haha!

Bah - work sucks, doesn't it? They always seem to want to give you more hours when you don't want them and don't offer you any when you do... :iconlesighplz: I hope you manage to get enough done that you feel good about it, anyway. :aww:

Sorry for the late reply!! Crazy crazy busy! *____* Can't wait till January XD Things will calm down sooo much.

Um the only pic I have of Tommy is this one --> [link] (The one whose eyes are covered) BUT I am working on a new picture of him with his friends where he will have freckles (: YAY!

Hope nano and your story has gone awesome (: Did you figure out a way for them to meet up or is it still in the works?

OH work... AT LEAST I'm getting paid pretty well so can't complain too much. I'm just sooo tired XD

I shall survive though! :D

Haha - don't worry! As you no doubt have noticed by now, I quite often take aaaaages to reply, so I totally understand!

Ah, thank you! For the life of me I couldn't find him at all! He was hiding... :P

I... have sort of come up with a way for Jay and Forrest to meet, but I still need to iron out all the kinks. And probably start the story again, haha! >.< I was thinking of adding a sort of murder mystery element to the story (Jay did stumble across a couple of quite disturbing corpses during the course of NaNo, but by the time I figured out what to do with them, none of the previous plot made any sense in relation to it... :s), and I was thinking of having Forrest appear as a... lawman, of sorts? Not really a sheriff or anything, but he's looking into the killers and tracking them down, anyway, for personal reasons. Do you think it would be considered cheating if I wrote the same story but properly for NaNo next year? :XD:

Aw, bless you! I hope you manage to have a good rest once the craziness of Christmas has passed! I've worked in retail during the holiday season before, and it's not fun!
