Yeah... Java programming is killing me...
(Title is a way to extend programs into another one... hard to explain... but it's kind of Java)
Anyway, as you can tell, this is an extension of my last update... yet still a new update in it's self.
It's mainly about the stuff I missed.
Just one comment about this update...
HOLY FACESETS O.O
OH NOES! It's school D:
*WILD SCHOOL DAY APPEARS*
*School used homework!*
*You used 'do homework'!*
*NOT VERY EFFECTIVE*
*School used 'boring classes'*
*IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE*
You fainted. You are out of usable techniques. You paid 7 hours of your time to school. You blanked out!
You rushed to tutoring to recover.
//Enough with the pokemon
^ANOTHER JAVA REFERENCE DFHAHLAJKSH
Anyway... Joking aside, I promise school WILL be interesting... Yeah...
So basically there are a few types of classes. NO TWO LESSONS ARE THE SAME WHEN YOU GROW UP!
This is why it's taking me soooo long. It's really boring to write non-stop.
For the school year, there are 10 units per period, 2 periods, and around 20 lessons per unit...
THAT'S 20 UNITS: 400 LESSONS PER YEAR
What have I done?!
I'm now down to 380 lessons... well... 376 since I've done some of the mythology.
I is smarter for the pre-teen year...
If I do one lesson a day, I wouldn't even able to finish.
Therefore, I need to do around 1 unit a day as long as I have no exams. >.<
Each lesson is unique, with different stories, lessons and activities. I apologize for the homework. I have an automatic think where I can collect homework to take away/add marks, and it's a pain in the butt if you don't have homework.
So... the types of classes: (Sounding even more like Java)
A regular class is what you would call the simple lessons. This is the most common day.
These days follow a lesson plan, where you will learn about the unit you are on. (For example, mythology you will learn about a different figure and story each day) These are the most common types of classes, and you will see these on a regular basis. (Hence them being 'regular')
Your teacher will stand at the front of the room and teach. Nothing special. Just be sure to read closely what she/he says, because you may be tested on it... and not all teachers are as sweet as Suzie and review for you...
Nah, I'm just joking XD We're not ordering coffee...
These days are fairly scattered out, and are the second most common days out of all of them. It's basically like a regular day, but with a tiny twist thrown in. It's just meant to break things up. It's not important, mainly the classmates acting silly.
For example, in one of the school days, (I believe it is Miss Suzie's History lesson, and it was an earlier one) Tyrone starts doodling and she asks him to stop.
Another day, Anastasia claims she is dying...
Yeah the classes are weird. I try to put in a couple small things per unit, but we'll see how it goes... when I actually get working on more units other than two...
This is one of the few events that will be foretold way before they happen. Tests are a regular part of the school year. You basically show what you know... it's not toooooo difficult... they don't take much time either.
These are another set of classes that you will be hearing about before they happen. Basically, your teacher will tell you if there is an event, what period etc. and when you enter that class next, you will go to that event with your classmates. It may be in the classroom or a field trip. It's all up to the event.
There are again, non-random events. You will know about the holidays and you will not have to attend school.
Random events are obviously not known when they will happen. Occasionally, something this will happen that will cause the class to change. Sometimes they are study periods, and sometimes they're more serious. Either way, it means that the regular lessons are cancelled.
Well, I've got quite a little treat for you guys.
I drew a lot of the teen concepts. I will show you the line art (Low quality... sorry ^_^; Too lazy to scan, so I took a pic with my webcam.)
So I'm over my huge creative block and I got my drawing muse back :)
I found out that stress causes me to have trouble drawing, because I'm not able to draw the circles, and the lines become too dramatic... Oh I should show you my pages of failed heads.
If I ever upload full scans of my pages that characters are drawn on, I usually have about 2-8 failed heads on them.
I'm less stressed today, and spent my day finishing school rumble while drawing. I won't be able to work on the game until next weekend due to exams though...
So right now, I have a bunch of them for you~
One of them most likely WILL be redrawn...
So... starting with this:
These are the beginnings of teenage Tai. I was getting bored of drawing and her eyes weren't coming naturally, so I stopped. I'll finish her later :3
EDIT: Scroll down to see completed drawing
Next one, I most likely will either re-draw or do HUUGE edits when doing the colouring.
I apologize for the picture's darkness... but it's teenage Aris! ...kinda...
His arm tattoo will be draw in later.... I just forgot which arm it's on TT_TT
It Teen Kandi :D
Her body is a bit awkward, but I'll fix later. She had lollypops as accessories, and a cupcake sticker on her arm... No, not a tattoo... a sticker...
Sadly... because I can't see through my sketchbook, this picture was a bit slanted, and therefore she looks a tad bit squished.
Anyway, this is her as a teen/adult.
Enjoy your stay staring at the pretty lady.
I know at least ONE person in the world would be happy or... remotely excited to see this drawing. That would be someone who used to work on the game with me, and actually used to VA Cindy before I did...
Er.... long story short we've kinda lost touch ^_^;
Erps he looks terrible. sorry guys :S I'll try to fix him up
Dear readers... this person is Damion. No he is not wearing a shirt under his jacket. Yes he wears that to school.
please avoid staring at this hideousness for as short as possible without going blind.
Next... I'm not sure if I'll be using it... but..
This is going to be... er... It was drawn like two months ago, so Idk. It was supposed to be Andy, but I have Andy done already... so... Tyrone maybe? Not going to use it... Ew.
Next, it's a little pixlated but...
IT KYLER :D Piro's BFF <3 Read the rest of the update to see the coloured verison of it :)
So yeah.... Not much to say. He was drawn quite a while back...
So this is an update since I started writing...
My sketchbook fell when I took the picture, but this is Tai <3 I added on to the drawing (The first one)
I can't believe it's tytannia! All grown up, and wearing dresses for the first time. The picture is low quality, but she does have a tattoo on her arm, and she doesn't look that bad in real life... honest XD
Once again, Low res picture of Kandi! What a cutie :3
So finally, my favorite...
Dis teen Maxie :D
Yes that's Max. His hair is going to be more blonde, not dirty blonde... so I'll actually stay loyal to the character he's based on.
I have coloured him, but for the sake of suspense, I won't reveal ;) I promise he looks good D: He's the best shading job I've ever done ^_^
He's a little bit more depressed in this stage, but he'll always be willing to smile if you're feeling sad :3 take care of my Maxie please <3
Holy crackers! That brings our total to 10 facesets this update! That's GOT To be a record!
July to December Festivals
The reason I'm going to reveal the second half of the calender is kind of a computer memory issue ^_^;
I don't feel like writing up a word doc, so I'll just post it here so I can look for it easily.
The other problem is, I need to set October in stone so that I don't program a school day by accident and have to take out entire lessons etc.

**SLIGHT GAMEPLAY SPOILER**
I'm a total dork who writes too much all the time because I like typing and I used to write novel-length stories and I'm just a weird person who does some things and breathes and stuff.
