a/n: I-I finished it! Sorry for the RIDICULOUS wait. After I had to go through that whole miserable day of finding the picture when it got deleted my interest in the pic sort of died out. I was afraid I'd fuck it up big time and lose it for good and just... ick. It was rough. But I SWORE to myself that I would get this finished sometime this weekend and HUZZAH! I did!

It's currently 1440x900 pixels because that's my screen size, but if someone wants one that'll fit their screen perfectly just ask me and I'll make one up. Also, I wanted to put words at the bottom like subtitles to a movie, but wasn't sure what I wanted it to say.

Oh and the whole reason I did this picture is because of Cobra Starships "The City is at War". I was listening to it and then drew Johnny there holding his shovel and started filling in a hideous Phi beside him dressed kind of like a mobster and it just evolved from that idea. Also I made a short playlist to listen to while I worked on this picture! The songs on it were both loud and peppy, and soft and ANGSTY. I don't know why.

I saved it! *Dances*

It's not exactly where I left off (boooooo), but it's closeish! I'm still missing some flat colors and all the shading I did to Franny is gone, but I'm just so happy that it EXISTS!

To celebrate I bring you: Naked Strangetown Boys that are anatomically correct! (... for sims that is) And some bonus sketches of Johnny (with cameos from Ripp, Phi and Tank's sexy bod).

Take It Back To The Place Where You Know That It All Began. We Can Be Anything We Wanna Be! You Can Tell By The Noise That The Boys Are Back Again! )

a/n: ignore Tank's fugged up face (that always happens). Also Buck's bod is way tilty.

I basically drew the first one just to play around with male anatomy because I suck at it. Like, I can make my girls all different shapes and sizes, but my dudes tend to come out sort of similar or get stuck in three main body types and I want to get past that.

Um in the second one, it's supposed to be Ripp's body at the upper left. And Tank's the other headless dude in the upper middle area. The rest of the boys are Johnny, plus that little Ripp at the bottom middle. And then there are two Ophelias to the far right.

Character(s): Johnny Smith!

I can't choose, so confused! What's it all mean? I want my own dream. So bad I'm gonna scream! )

a/n: I-I can explain! Kind of. Maybe.

Okay, so I've basically been listening to/watching Zefron's Scream! all day. Because I'm insane. Also because I'm a total HSM dweeb - they are nonsensical! And have many colors! And RYAN'S ROCKETTES! AND LOTS OF INAPPROPRIATE THRUSTING! Seriously, these movies are golden. And I have such a dorky crush on Zeffers - I'm absolutely IN LOVE with his arms (i-i have a hand/arm kink LEAVE ME ALONE) and his HIPS! And he has the most adorably distinctive walk (which you can see HERE! - just look at him defy physics and gravity with every step he takes!)

And then I was like: NEED TO DRAW SCREAM! JOHNNY BECAUSE OMG HE IS MY FAVORITE BOY CHARACTER EVER AND THIS SONG REMINDS ME OF HIM BECAUSE I AM A NUT JOB. It's just the whole... search for himself? And his future? And how he's all lost and stuff.... And like, the lyrics to this song are totally juvenile, but I don't even care. The vid I linked to has the worst quality, but I can still make out the best parts! When Zef pounds on the lockers and then throws himself against them in time to the beat? A-and near the end when he pulls off all those stripper moves with the ropes? Those moments just go right through me. GOOD GOD SO HOT.

So I drew Johnny emo and screaming and then just some more random anatomy things, because Zef makes me wanna draw boys and that like NEVER HAPPENS.

also i can't be the only one with a crush on johnny, right? reluctant heroes ftw!

EDIT: Also right around 0:32 in A Night to Remember Zef does this thing with his hips and flicks his head to the side all dramatic and lady-like and just - OMG BOY WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?

You know what sucks?

Starting a really fucking awesome picture and knowing that you won't really be able to do anything with it until Monday at the earliest!

Booooooooooo.

But really, you guys - this is gonna be the most badass picture I've ever done. All of the other pictures I've ever made will weep pussy tears when they get a peek at this shit. I even have to fucking research GUNS and GRENADES because this picture is just that badass. Oh, and it's SHWC fanart, so that's always cool too.

But I'm going home this weekend and my tablet won't be with me and WOE! I mean, not too much woe, because I'm going home and I haven't been back in Lebtown for like... ever. End of August, I think? Fucking college being fucking far away. But I'm super excited! I get to see Bear and Favorite Whale! We are going to go watch High School Musical 3 because we are hardcore like that! And I get to go peek in KB Toys and tell them that 'Imma be back for Christmas break soon so hire me back you assholes!'

Yet, I still mourn the loss of time that I could be working on this badass picture. Also, almost everyone in it is either shirtless or in some sort of tight fitting outfit so you might also all cream your pants when it's done. Hottest, most badass shit ever.

But, uhhhhh, don't expect it for awhile, because this is gonna be ten thousand times harder to do than the last group picture. So like... it'll probably be a weekish or more if my inspiration dies partway through. :\

Anyway, this totally isn't supposed to be a journal-journal, so to get back on track I shall post an art!

Johnny is channeling my annoyance at not being able to work on this picture until Monday... )

EDIT: Also, I got bored and didn't feel like sleeping so...uhhhh here:

Ain't he a smug little bastard?

Geh, I wish I had some actual sort of animation software. All I can do is make GIFs in photoshop and I can't change the length of time between frames at all with that. Pooey.
stillthekey: ([shwc] to you i will always return)
NOTE: I've been debating about actually posting this. I actually always feel really awkward about posting art/fiction for Strange's story, because like... she's real, a tangible person that I can have e-conversations with and that's a little frightening on some level. I worry about stepping on toes, especially lately because people have been commenting more here. Not that it takes away from her story, but like... I'm worried that it's going to seem like I'm trying to take the story from her or that maybe I'm pushing too hard for things I want (like Johnny/Ripp stuff). And like, that's really NOT my intention at all when I draw stuff for SHWC. I don't want the story to turn out the exact way I think it should and I don't want her to push characters to places they wouldn't otherwise go to please a fan or fans or anything like that.

And now I feel stupid, because I sound sort of bigheaded - as if my opinion and constant chatter is affecting the plot and the characters. Urgh, I don't THINK I'm swaying the plot, but I mean, I also don't want to add that pressure, y'know? Um.... yeah.

So today I wrote up a sizeable chunk of text about Johnny and why I love him and what he means to Ripp and Phi respectively. And like, this is MY interpretation of him. It may not be the correct one! Parts of it may be close to the real Johnny, but others might be off the mark! And you can agree/disagree with me if you want or just ignore this whole thing all together (probably the best option XD).

REMEMBER - this is all fan speculation! I have no more knowledge of the trio's future than anyone else! This is just me laying out some thoughts and whether or not they're anywhere near the truth is yet to be seen!

So then - JOHNNY!

It makes sense that it should feel just this way that you slowly fade and yet still remain - as if to say: 'Everything matters in such an invisible way' - as if to say: 'It's okay. Fly...away' )

Would you ever be my, would you be my fucking boyfriend? )

a/n: Lol. I dunno. Just bored. I genderbend for fun sometimes. It's just fun to see the differences in design if you switch up gender.

My main goal of this whole thing was to make male!Phi as hot as fucking possible. I feel fairly satisfied with the end result. female!Ripp is kind of awkward, but in a cute way and female!Johnny is pretty and has small boobies. Anybody got any opposite gender names for these guys? I kind of like Janie for Johnny. No idea for Ripp and I feel like Phi's name has to have more to do with Shakespeare and/or drowning.

Staying up until all hours of the morning to: a) write a 4,000+ word story about Don Lothario or b) go batshit and decide to just fucking color something even though it can definitely wait until morning are NEVER good ideas. I AM SO TIRED.

And I could have waited to post! But by this point I'm like: "FUCK IT WHATEVER MAYBE I'LL WAKE UP TO A COMMENT OR SOMETHING I DUNNO."

And, forgive me now if there's any really stupid errors in the text or anything - I'm so out of it.

Okay so comments on the actual picture:

1) OMG MY SHIPS ARE SHOWING HOW EMBARRASSING I SHOULD COVER THAT UP
2) Frances is in purple because of [livejournal.com profile] xel_squirgle_ox. DEAL WITH IT.
3) I know they weren't all kids together. I don't care. It's ~symbolic~.
4) OMG BABIES
5) Sorry if your fave didn't make the cut. I hate old people (CIRCE, CURIOUS BROS, SMITH RENTS, GIRLS WHO AREN'T ERIN). Not really, but whatever. I drew my favorites.

Johnny's Response to a Nekkid Jill Gallery +a bonus picture! )

a/n: Just what I imagine Johnny's face will look like when he first walks into all the smutty Jill pictures (they aren't that smutty). Also - I know that the stripes on Johnny's shirt are not orange. I just like 'em better that way. *shrugs*

The second one was just for fun. I wanted to draw Jill as a kid and then Johnny came along too. I took some liberties with their hair/teeth/clothing obviously. Also, in my mind, every summer Jill gets the tiniest dusting of freckles across her nose that you can only really see when you get right up close. Jill hates them, but Buck thinks each of them is like the tiniest little treasure.

Which, y'know they live in the desert so she should have them all the time, but INDULGE ME.

And even though it's not the first thing you look to, let me point out that they are all holding hands! And Ripp and Phi are so happy, and Johnny is like: "I actually do not hate this *small smile and blush*" and just... Weeee!

Anyway, I finished up that last Johnny/Ripp picture and realized that I had meant to fix this doodle up, but never got around too it. And I really just felt like doing SOMETHING with the trio. So I took the original doodle from here: (It's the one on the bottom right!) and cleaned it all up.

I'm really proud of how much I CHANGED this. It's amazing how much my style grows and changes in just a couple months. I believe the original sketch was made back at the end of May the finished version done just today. Big changes, eh? I even included a little picture so you can see for yourself!

Everything good needs replacing - look up, look down all around, hey satellite )

a/n: For me, one of the saddest things in Shenanigans is that Miles never really gets to spend time with his dad. When Jay dies, Miles hasn't even been born. In fact, Jay never finds out that he's going to have another son (he knows about the first, but is neglectful though he was actually just beginning to change that). And then Tai is just... not a very good substitute. So I drew a cutesy sketch of Miles and Jay, because I'm sad that they lost all that time. Oh and I also drew a ghost!Jay watching Miles try and fail to build towers and being unable to help and SAAAAAAD.

Haha, I've actually had this thing inked and flat-colored for awhile. I kept forgetting to shade it and then just be done with it though. But last night I was reading Strange's interview and she mentioned face grabbing and how she loved it and so I thought: "hell, i ought to just fix it up some." And so I did!

a/n: Okay, definitely lamest thing I've done thus far (I SAY THAT SO MUCH THAT I THINK ITS LOST ITS EFFECT D: ). Honestly, I just wanted to see if I could make a fanmix. I've never done one before and it's taken me forever to figure out how to combine all the songs into one neat little zip file. Though, it's actually REALLY easy to do and I'm kind of a doofus for not figuring it out sooner.

I didn't put every single song I've used as an LJ-cut in here. I cut it down to some of my favorites. Surprisingly the ones I kept all seemed to fit some aspect of the JRO situation.

Mama, why am I so alone? I can't go outside - I'm scared I might not make it home. )

a/n: Fixed up scrap. Johnny/Ripp is my most favorite of possible JRO pairings (ruling out keeping them as a trio). This is actually really strange, because I don't really tend to favor M/M pairings. I don't have a problem with slash and enjoy reading it from time to time and I like how Strange deals with sexuality in the story, but I naturally gravitate towards Het first, and then Femslash second. Boy slash doesn't really tickle my fancy in a fan sense.

But I just adore Johnny/Ripp. Probably because it's all subtext with them. They are very romantic with one another, but they don't really seem to dwell on what that could mean. Also, I just love the turmoil inside Johnny when it comes to Ripp. On one hand this guy is trying to lay claim to something that is Johnny's and on the other hand this is RIPP - his best friend. And these two sides are constantly warring with one another. He wants to both attack Ripp and make him hurt, and at the same time he only wants to protect and hold onto him.

Ripp isn't so conflicted. Johnny is his best friend. Ophelia is his perfect girl. He loves them. He loves them together. He loves them together with him.

a/n: As out there as this seems, it's pretty much normal for me. If I really like something I like having fun sticking Helga in the mix. This is because she is my most favorite character in the history of forever. Also, because I'm ridiculous.

Also, I don't regret making it, because it made me finally realize why I love Johnny so damn much. Angry blond with ridiculous eyebrows? YES FOREVER.

So um (...i still didn't add numbers....doi), there's Ripp hitting on Helga and she's totally not into it. SHE ONLY HAS CHEMISTRY FOR ARNOLD and gerald maybe because it's HOT. Then she angrily points towards some alien spaceship, because uhhh... she can?

Then Helga and Johnny are twinsies, because they totally are. Aaaaand last is Helga with Phi. I imagine she's saying something like: "wow, you're pretty good at that." towards Phi and her flowers.

Oh and while I'm at it let me push some stuff at you:
