STCH - Yoko, Jenna + Dolores (Redesign) by Haisai-DBarenzu
STCH - Yoko, Jenna + Dolores (Redesign)
Aloha guys, been a while, hasn't it? Dil or "D Barenzu" here with a batch of design work I was working at for "Stitch Triverse" whilst toiling on the cover of BOOK 1 with my collaborators.

Last time I did one of these, it was for the character Jessica, redesigning her to fit in with the islander cast of Izayoi. In that same vein, I had an OC event that hit home back in January of 2014 that brought in a few newbies too alongside some others. So, in honor of this, I wanted to not only showcase two of those OCs, made possible by STITCH62633 and CatDasher (to which, thanks EVER so much for allowing this), but also throw in another character I salvaged from the remains of... *sighs* Zutto.

Let's start with the first one, Yoko. Yoko is a character whom was created in tandem with Experiment 492, Milston, for an old "Stitch!" story of mine that unfortunately fell. However, Yoko and Milston didn't get scrapped, as they are now in Triverse as new friends to Yuna and Stitch on the island of Izayoi. Milston can be seen below on an older design still kept around:

STCHTTHK - YOKO + MILSTON by Haisai-DBarenzu

However, onto character specifics. As such, Yoko is younger than most of Yuna and Stitch's friends by a year at the age of 9 (and compared to the other two here), but retains her backstory of moving to Izayoi Island with her friend Milston after her one and only parent and father found life anew in the idea of the island from the city of Hong Kong. She has history with Yuna of sorts, after the tomboy and her saved Hong Kong from befalling a "Experiment"-al problem some time ago. Yoko's a cute yet bombastic girl, whom looks a lot into the unknown with a confident heart and in coming to the island, flaunts her cute ideals with her Experiment partner Milston at her side, whom is quite the hothead with the power to burst parts of himself into flames, either flinging himself at foes or even causing sheer mayhem. Of course, given people like Penny and Jessica... that may prove tricky for the both. Yoko, as stated, was created by yours truly and STITCH62633 for a previous story.

Next, we have Jenna, a character crafted as a Stitch OC by fellow user and friend of mine CatDasher, brought into the world of Triverse as a new buddy to Yuna and Stitch. Specifically, Jenna is the same age as Yuna and other friends/accomplices of hers are, 10. In CatDasher's original idea of the character, she was with a family that moved in from America to get a fresh new start in life (seen below is her design), meeting with another OC...

Stitch OC Jenna Lynnman by CatDasher 

However, for Triverse, Jenna is switched up as coming from Osaka for the same reasons, a fresh start after life hadn't been so kind with her folks. Jenna, due to her afro (uniquely exclusive to her in her family tree), was planned with as being reliant yet collected, although she had a particular quirk about her... her abundant use of 70s lingo possibly lied to her hairdo in the story. Perhaps it's the way she dresses or perhaps it's the gigantic afro-like hairdo, but for some reason, she's out of era in personality. Besides this, she's a unique click in Yuna's group of friends. And while her habit of speaking in old lingo seems awkward, the islanders still welcome her in as an "old-school" addition. Jenna, as stated, was created by that of CatDasher and was brought into the Triverse via the OC event past in early 2014 that brought in several characters to Triverse doors.

And finally, here's a surprise. If you know... *sighs* Zutto, you know the character Dolores. As it turns out, I've also managed to rework and redesign her into Triverse too, as she'd been on Izayoi Island prior and a year younger than her other incarnation (meaning she's the same age as Yuna and friends, 10). A tricky sell, but keep with me here.

Dolores had moved to Izayoi Island from that of Okinawa's New Town a while back. However, she hid in the shadows of the beautiful island, often burying her face in a book before Yuna and company found her and decided to try and spark a friendship with the geeky girl. At first, she seemed a bit snobby and hesitant about it, often more concerned with facts and figures than the people in front of her. However, after a few choice meetings, Dolores took a turn and decided to change her ways to become friends, among others in Yuna's circle (i.e Sae, Taro, JJ, Jenna, Yoko), this happening before that of Triverse began. Dolores is a very intelligent girl, one whom knows some incredible facts due to her consistent studying and her own personal book (if you know kanji, that book says something quite peculiar... dare ya to try and translate it). Because of this, she comes off as a bit boring and "by the book", no pun intended. However, despite being rather dry for one her age, she's helpful and ambitious to those she knows and loves.

Dolores' redesign didn't change much from her... *sighs* Zutto one, her hair and body being retained as such. However, there is some unique changes made for her. Her face and glasses especially are one to note, as she's gained freckles in the jump and also managed to take on the unique anime trait of "nerd glasses", or the spiral-eyed sort of glasses seen in most Japanese animation. Including that, her outfit's changed to a forest green shirt with puffy shoulders, a light mahogany skirt and forest green crocs (a throwback to Zutto... or at least one of the only ones you'll be getting from me). The last thing is her personal book, modeled alike another Disney staple, the Junior Woodchuck's Guidebook from "DuckTales". Like I stated, the kanji on that book means something VERY endearing to her character and I challenge friends/followers to try and translate. Other than this, she retains a good majority of her outfits and personality quirks and joins into Yuna's group of friends from around the isle... or by this point in Triverse, has already joined despite us not seeing her yet.

Anyways, that's about it for these designs. Again, these are three characters from the "Stitch Triverse" lore, some introduced already in our grand story, one that... may just make her debut later. For now though, these designs should give you guys an idea on how they'll be presented in the lore. Hope you guys enjoy while me and my collaborators continue at the BOOK 1 cover and another thanks to CatDasher and STITCH62633 for their characters being used! Mahalo and I'll catch you on the wave later...

Small little update 'cuz I noticed, but HOLY TOLEDO!

I passed 75,000 hits on dA here! And on top of that, JUST in time for my five-year anniversary on here... which passed by yesterday, but who cares, it still counts (April 5)!

Seems like just yesterday five years back that I was new here... that kid with the growing artistic talents working on "Stitch!" film stories (man, reminds me of how far I've come when I look back at those old clunkers), being known as the new kid on the block when it comes to the Stitch and even Disney fanbases... Sigh, really takes you down memory lane. 

Times have changed a lot in those years, haven't they? I've gone from scripts to novels, my artwork's improved crazily and my Disney lores and understanding has grown since then. Not to mention, yours truly's gotten older, wiser and much more of a zealot in his fandoms, especially in Disneydom. And also branched out to so much more than you could imagine, Twitter, Instagram and several other mediums included. Even compare my "Stitch Triverse" concept to the older singular film story scripts and it seems like child's play (plus, they weren't all for naught, a lot of the ideas from said older stories still exist in the lore of the former).

But hey, you can only come from humble beginnings, right?

Anywho, thanks to EVERYONE for viewing my stuff and making this 75k landmark happen, either be it friends, followers, or the occasional passerby. Really means a lot and to everyone out there, I L-O-V-E you all. I'll keep chugging along with all I got: art, "Stitch Triverse" + other stories and a whole slew more surprises up my sleeve. Again, thank you all and haisai! <3
Been a while... but I've got a slight update, folks. :)

To all you folks following my opus of "Stitch Triverse", I've got awesome news for your patient selves. Me, ZoraCatone and HappyAggro are finally ready to start on the first of the four book covers, the one for BOOK 1. As such, this will be a close yet long-term project, but one that is really exciting and one that I'm more than happy to be sharing with friends for the ride. I simply can't thank Zora and Clivey enough for joining along in this project. There's no estimated date of completion for the first cover, but upon its completion, the actual BOOK 1: UNION story will continue with its fourth chapter and beyond. This marks two things: one, more story work and two, more artwork. It's win/win for everyone, see? You can peep the slight preview announcement here on Twitter. It's not much, but it's a light nudge into where the BOOK 1 cover is gonna go: twitter.com/Haisai_DBarenzu/st…

While this is going down, I'd like to point the attention to my Instagram (instagram.com/haisai_dbarenzu/), where while I've been doing something else Stitch-related with a hashtag called #TriverseSketch. This is where I sketch out (with pencil and paper) characters, scenes and elements out of the "Stitch Triverse" lore for my Instagram (and Twitter) followers to see (up to certain points in the story, as to prevent spoilers for later), I've done a good two or three so far. So, while the two collaborators and I work at the first of our covers, I may just be sketching as well. Something to keep eye for if you follow me on there.

On top of this, work will also begin soon on ANOTHER cover, which is actually my first one for TheFicDoctor's Taismo Series. You already know I've done a few character sheets much in the vein of what I did with "Stitch Triverse" and its human leads. Now though, I'll be juggling work on BOOK 1's cover w/ collaborators and the work on this one for Brandon's first story, "Sonic X: Eternal Angel". Much like the cover under work for BOOK 1, there's no exact finishing date, but you'll know it when you see it.

Anyways, just wanted to update the dA status since last time I did was a few weeks back. This coming weekend is Easter too, so to all my friends and followers, hope your plans go well if you celebrate the holiday. Haisai!
A minor update: went and saw Kenneth Branagh's take on Disney's princess "Cinderella" tonight, the next in line of Disney's live-action revamps. The short of it is that I loved it, but I also wrote one of my "D Barenzu Drive In Discussion" articles on Twitter/Twitlonger for the film after, something I've been doing on film since 2015 started up or rather, since December and people have dug 'em. Peep #4 on "Cinderella" and others I've overviewed in the hashtag with the Twitter link below. Nothing else but life going on that aside, so haisai!

Name's Dil! Or Dylan in full; known on the internet as "D Barenzu" and even by previous name "TheDarkOfNight" and other variations of the name. The names go on and on; but you'll find me by those two specifically.

I'm a Disney zealot: fan of many Disney works and a fellow culture-crazed Canadian whom takes pride in his work and his friends, girlfriend and family (a la ohana): that may include you reading! I also take my time into several endeavors, drawing, writing, mixing, and so forth: I try my best into what I do; so to speak. I'm also the hugest Stitch fan you probably may come across in Canada, sporting the avatar of Yuna Kamihara no matter where he goes. Ih, meega have no shame for that.

As for other places I'm found, well, check one of my journals for my basic places I'm found at, usually under the very names I have here, "D Barenzu" or again, previous name "TheDarkOfNight-D". For Skype or an e-mail, note me and I'll pass 'er your way! Takka for the understanding!

Feel free to browse my gallery if you wanna: read my stories or comment at my artwork: and moreso, talk at me if you wish to, I'll usually be around to holler back! <3

Oh, and I'm available for collaborations (in terms of art and writing) with people as well, friends! Anytime you want to collab, just ask and I'll see if want to get into the swing of things! It just depends on who and what it is!

You might've been late to the party then, a while ago in February I decided on the idea to change my dA name from "TheDarkOfNight". Mainly 'cuz I've been using my "D Barenzu" name a lot more these days, especially in writing, artwork and in alias. So thus, "Haisai-DBarenzu" was born.

tl;dr, yes, I changed it a while back. :)
