Magic Memoir WIP (I don't even KNOW)

#1 Post by MaiMai » Thu Jun 17, 2010 2:40 am

I think there is something wrong with my head. I already have a slow project going along. BUT.

Image

Summary:
"Do you want to be a witch?"

Amelia Steinbeck, a full grown adult witch, reminisces about her younger days as a student of magic-- The days where she struggled with the trials of love, loss, and the burden of responsibility she carries to this very day as a consequence of being bestowed great power.

Genre: Fantasy, otome (because we can't get enough of our silly romances), maybe action
Character Artiste: C'EST MOI C'EST MOI
Writer: SHIIIIIIIIIINJIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII


Too brief? Damn straight. There will be at least three or four guys to pursue in this game as you play a no-nonsense literature loving redhead witch.

First, of the main protagonist girl (more otome!!11 oh how thrilling)
Image
Image
Name: Amelia Steinbeck
Age: As an adult, she looks like her middle twenties, as a teen she looks sixteen. Buuuuut....
Short Bio: Amelia is a teacher at Blackgale Highschool, and teaches AP Literature. (Advanced Placement for you non-American folks!). Her serious straight-laced face isn't the most friendly, but she's known to be a hard working teacher who looks out for her students. She is secretly a witch who has actually lived for a long time, so you can bet she's had her painful adolescent... Pain. Yeah. Basically, the story starts out with her as an adult, but then it will jump to her past self.

As a teen, she looks poker-faced at times, but she's actually rather sarcastic and gets frustrated at others easily. After many years of mastering magic, the younger Amelia has found life boring and mundane even with her incredible powers bestowed upon her. That is until the following events due to certain people starting with Briar...

Image
Name: Briar
Age: YOUNG
Short Bio: Briar is a quiet and expressionless young man... Who actually came from a magic rose Amelia had been tending for many, many years until an overflow of magic caused him to be created. Think Thumbelina, except a guy and full-grown. He basically IS a magic rose being if you wanted to get technical. Amelia names him and takes it upon herself to teach him about the world. You could say he's almost childlike, but he learns pretty quickly from just watching others.

Image
Name: Adam
Age: ???
Short Bio: Adam is the new guy in town who quickly establishes himself as a 'Hunter of the Supernatural'-- that would include witches like Amelia herself who finds that she dislikes this guy pretty quickly since he seems to suspect her of having powers. He's friendly in his own way though, but not used to girls which is why Amelia's snarky attitude can put him off at times.

NEW!!!
Image
Name: Micheal DeRosier
Age: Looks 17
Short Bio: Micheal is a 'full-blooded' wizard unlike Amelia who was given her powers. He is considered an arrogant delinquent by Amelia. Micheal has a tendency to show up anywhere Amelia is (she calls it stalking) to challenge her in spell-casting since she has more skill than him despite her weaker magic. (If you can't tell, he's nursing a grudge basically.) Micheal gets especially riled up when Amelia calls him 'Michelle' on purpose. Despite the silly arguments between them, she doesn't totally hate him, and commends Micheal for his power.

And on that note, I will leave you folks with this terrifying GIF of Shia LeBouf enjoying the men that will be in this game. Because even he can appreciate them 8|

Nice idea. Lately, I haven't seen much VN's revolving around magical themed stories. Judging by characters looks, this will be something similiar to Sabrina or WITCH?

Either way, you've made quite a big progress with art! Nice concepts. I'm not big fan of WIP threads anymore, but I hope you'll suceed with this. Haha, this year will really seem a year of otome games :lol:

Yeah, similar to Sabrina, but with its own serious moments. It should still have some silliness though since I'm going to try my hand at writing humor. I noticed that when I try writing a cool story, I try to do something dramatic and dark when... I don't think that's actually my forte (i.e. Stained One which is why it's on hiatus >.>; )

Your character art is so cute. <3 (And oddly familiar, lol) I am particularly impressed with Amelia.
And I always liked the Sabrina show and I'm a fan of drama, so I definitely want to see where this goes. :D

As always, if you need help, just PM me.

Yeah, might tweak Adam's design a bit, he looks a bit too much like a guy from an 18+ otome game O.O;; Yay, Aleema Approval *__* And I think I will be needing your help! Since I am a subpar programmer ahaha ;;

Rough drafting and Amelia's side sprites starts today! I have no work since projects at school are done +A+

Oh, Shia. Look how much you've grown.

That aside, Adam's design actually reminds me of Harima Kenji from School Rumble, especially after he ditches the facial hair. I very much like Harima, and I think he deserved much better than the girl he was pining after. >.>

Briar screams, "I am sad."

Adam screams, "I am a badass."

Who do you think people will go for~? -shot-

Anyway, good luck. -_- I feel the pain of working on two things at the same time too.

(Actually, Briar reminds me of one of my characters. Then again, every other person seems to be reminding me of someone else these days.)

@lepapillonrouge-- Hm, should make sure that Briar looks more innocent then! He's actually a really affectionate young man ;w;
@sake-bento-- Haha, I didn't notice that! You're right, he really does look a bit like Harima XD (I LOVE School Rumble)

Short character bios are up! And a sketch and character bio for the third and final guy, Micheal will be up :)

This looks interesting~ I'm a sucker for framed storylines like this though XD

I like Briar... His design is adorableeeee~

D: Now I like him moreeeee. Unfortunately if I played this I'd probably accidentally end up with Adam.. because I always mean to go for the cute one first but somehow end up with the one you're most likely to argue with.. maybe that says something about me >_>...

Third and final guy is up! Sticking with three, because anymore and I will die from drawing too much. Also, preview of the side sprite image for Amelia! (teen version, will work on Adult version soon since that should be easy)
