    Softness in the graphite mostly. No.2 pencils are generally considered "hard," where as B-series ones have a gradient scale of softness that effects how the lines appear when drawn. 3B is considered medium and somewhat comparable to No.2s, while 8B is considered extra soft and sort of grainy. I want to say the graininess leaves a nasty dust trail, but this isn't the case. Some examples I'm working on: <-Outlined in 3B; <-Doorway outlined in 8B. I like the effects of both really. Aside from less blurriness from erasing, the varied softness gives it sort of a nice hazy effect that gives the outlined part a nice crude feel. It doesn't feel all mechanically drawn. I still need to finish the second pic, but I still say it's a huge improvement over my old drawing kit.

    Well, I did get a new drawing kit last week. :3 I'm pretty happy with it because I have actual drawing pencils now instead of the plain No.2 pencils I'd been using to this point. The graphite dust doesn't spread all over the place with these when I erase parts of unneeded outlining, so it doesn't blur like it did with my old stuff when I scan things. I've already done a few pics (including a redrawn sketch of my Oposeteer design and a pic of Mangled from Five Nights at Freddy's 2 that I'm still working on).

    Heya! Been a while since I heard from you, Nolafus, so I thought I'd drop you a line. How have you been lately?

    I'm half and half on that movie really. There were parts I liked and parts I didn't. It certainly wasn't Will Smith's best flick, that's for sure.

    Yeah, sounds somewhat like what PMD-GtI was like. Biohazard kind of had its roots in a show called "Life After People," wherein scientists speculated what future Earth would be like if humans suddenly vanished. Also, I do have some indirect correlation with the movie "After Earth," though my fic actually predates that movie. Still, I thought a post-apocalyptic fic where Pokémon have to deal with the aftermath of human experimentation was pretty interesting, even though I never finished the story.

    That's the gist of it. PMD worked on several different ideas with each gen: Gen 3-Humans were absent from the world, and possibly went extinct with how there were off-branching ruins that served as Friend Areas for Pokémon you added to your team (that's sort of how I based Biohazard in a world where Pokémon knew that humans existed long ago and that they went extinct; the prospect being that remnants of human civilization plagued the new world in the form of Doxisite and Doxinox, two manmade Pokémon that disappeared centuries beforehand but suddenly came back unexpectedly), Gen 4 mentioned humans existing in a forlorn future, but there was no explanation about where they were in the present where the story took place (in fact, the only human in the game was the player character and he got turned into a Pokémon after a mishap during time travel), and Gen 5 had it set so that humans and Pokémon existed in separate worlds with Pokémon world only dismissing humans as myth (I loved the whole "Link Between Worlds" concept, both in that game and Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. They were two different concepts, though, but very fun nonetheless). I'm enjoying the RP's setting, though. It really gives me a lot of chances to exercise my Ninetales character Osiris, an 800-year-old sorcerer who's insight is so great that he's considered an oracle of sorts.

    Then again, do you want to effectively have absurdly long years? (I bet lifespans also need to be tweaked...)

    Just basic proofreading. I liken them more to logs than an actual story. The RP's not canon for either of our worlds, mine being PMD/Biohazard and his being a realm hidden away where sentient toys can live peacefully. For some reason it actually seems to gel pretty well, considering my world is devoid of human wherein his has them still existing. I kind of tweaked my own so my characters were aware of human existence, but were generally told to keep away from them to keep with the PMD theme of humans being absent from the Pokémon world. ...this...makes no sense to you, does it...?

About Me

  • About Nolafus
    My guess is that you saw my bold blue name and wanted to know a bit more about me. Well, you've come to the right place!

    As far as pokemon goes, my first game was Black. My parents didn't want me engulfed by the franchise when I was young, so they never let me do anything pokemon. I felt like I was missing out, bought Black on a school band trip my sophomore year of high school, and I've been hooked ever since. A word of warning, since I came into the franchise so late, I have a tendency to mix up my earlier generations, so please be a little understanding in regards to that.

    I do enjoy competitive battling, and I dare say that my grass team and NU team are pretty good! So, if you ever want to battle, drop me a message and I'll do my best to get back to you. Since I don't have wifi at my house, it will have to be on Showdown. I'm almost always up for a battle or two, so don't be shy about asking.

    As far as non-pokemon stuff goes, I also enjoy writing. Well, it's kind of obvious at this point, but I really do enjoy it. I think it would be amazing to become a professional writer someday, and I'm giving my best shot at it. I have yet to send anything out to publishers, mainly because I'm a bit too nervous to take that step, but I hope to send something out soon. Now whether that actually gets published is a different story, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

    If you're interested in writing, don't be afraid to leave me a message! I love getting mail, and it would be awesome to hear from you. If you have any questions about the writing craft, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. I'm still sort of new to writing, when compared to some of you old folk, but I'm pretty confident in my abilities.

    I've been modding FF&W ever since November 8th, 2013, and I really enjoy it. I get to help people develop their skills and be in a community with fellow writers. What's better than that?
    I also like roller coasters and I play the trumpet, french horn, mellophone (a french horn for marching band), and flugel.

Okay, so this is my response to Dakota's blog. I was tagged by Zach, and I thought this would be a fun thing to do. Dakota's blog explaining what this all is can be found here:

Alright, so let's get started!

No longer will you have to continuously visit your blog over and over again, hoping someone has come by and helped you with your essay. Now, you can do the exact same thing, but with a thread in FF&W! Thanks to the new [Nonfiction] prefix, your essays, opinion papers, and creative nonfiction now have their own happy, little home surrounded by other literature pieces where they belong. So, next time you have an essay for school, or just wrote an essay for fun (hey, I can't be the only one who...

Alright, so many of you have noticed that I have started a sign-up for a creative writing class. For those of you that haven't noticed, then read on!

Since I think school does a terrible job of teaching creative writing and several people have expressed their interest in it, I'm going to be attempting to teach a creative writing right here on PC. I certainly don't know everything about writing, so this is just going to be an introductory course. Everything you need to know about this...

Hello everyone!

Some of you know that I have been off at a writing conference for the past few days. I'm heading back tomorrow, but insomnia strikes tonight, so I may as well write about it now. I'm just going to tell you about what I learned about not just writing, but about the writers themselves.

The more and more panels I went to, the more and more I learned something. Now, these panels were about a huge variety of topics ranging from asking how many readers is...

Before I start, I would just like to say that I don't actually want to be a garbage man when I grow up. Before you ask me why I chose the title, let me ask you a question first. Why did you click on this blog? What prompted you to read this entry while you could be doing a thousand different things? There are several answers to this simple question. Some of you clicked on this simply because I'm your friend and friends are more likely to read friend's stuff. However, I hope there's another reason...
