It's nice that [One Tree Hill] shows that," she stated. You forget how nerve-racking that is — the vulnerability of wearing bloomers. Both [are] small towns where high school sports played a big part," she stated. She came off as too angry and bitchy to some viewers.
She's like, you know, this cute little girl. She wants to be all hard and angry. Working with her has been wonderful. For her, [Peyton's] more of the do-it-yourself girl. She's so into music, art, she's such a rich character that there are a lot of different things to draw on," stated One Tree Hill's costume designer, Carol Cutshall.
Some days she'll be in a concert T-shirt. We have to find the right concert T-shirt. I do alter them a lot. We come out of it with kind of a one-o-f-a-kind rock T-shirt. I take something and then turn it into my own piece of clothing," said Cutshall.
In real-life I am [several years older], and was wearing T-shirts and jeans, and Converse sneakers for five years. With the four-year timeline jumpPeyton got to wear more skirts and dresses, and shorter ones.
Peyton was further designed as an artist, in order to add more depth to the character and express what she cannot or does not want to say.
But I still had to try out for the job," she said. They were pretty specific about what they were looking for. I guess my work was closest. I got the job. In describing the process of drawing for a particular episode, she said she would mostly get input from Robbie Beck, the props master for the show.
So Robbie would send me the info and I would initially do some quick sketches," stated Ward. All of their communication was via e-mail. Often I would give a finished version and an unfinished for this purpose. If I remember correctly, it was usually the words that I left undone. I certainly became more comfortable working in her style, but I think her style also evolved to fit mine. Does that make sense?
The drawings were too clean. A little forced and not at all the way I liked to work. In Season 6, it is seen in color instead of in black and white, to reflect the character's happiness. Regarding most people not knowing she is the actual artist of the artwork, Ward stated that although people generally do not concern themselves with the workers behind the scenes, she believes this is how things should be, and that she is appreciative of those who have related to her artwork.

Their relationship does not work out, since Pete is busy with touring. Peyton's father tells her to follow her heart and listen to it, so Peyton, considering Ellie's advice as well, decides to give Jake a visit in Savannah; she knows that she still loves him and feels that this will be enough for her to be happy.
She renews her relationship with Jake and Jenny, and even goes so far as to propose marriage to Jake, who gladly accepts. This happiness fades once Jake overhears Peyton say, "I love you, Lucas" in her sleep. Peyton is then forced to tell Jake about the kiss she and Lucas shared on the day of the shooting. Jake figures that while Peyton loves him, she also still loves Lucas. He tells her to go back to Tree Hill, and to find out if Lucas is still in her heart.
If he is not, Jake promises to still be there waiting. Peyton does as Jake has advised. In the finale, Brooke once again ends her friendship with Peyton after Peyton tells her that she still has romantic feelings for Lucas.
Lucas later tells Brooke about the kiss in the library. At the end of the episode, Peyton burns pictures of herself with Brooke. She then picks up a picture of the three of them herself, Brooke and Lucas and burns it. In season 4, Peyton discovers that she has a half-brother named Derek. With prompting from Lucas, she agrees to meet with him.
Unaware of all this, and in an attempt to be more trusting, Peyton accepts him. Lucas, on the other hand, soon grows suspicious of 'Derek' when he catches him sniffing Peyton's hair during a hug and finds Peyton's jacket, which had gone missing, on the beaten prostitute still dressed as Peyton.
Peyton soon realizes the truth, and, in a terrifying encounter, is manhandled and nearly raped by Psycho Derek. Lucas and the real Derek come to her rescue, pushing him out a window; by the time the police show up, he has disappeared.
This series of events causes Peyton to withdraw from society, becoming scared and even skipping school and getting four locks on her bedroom door. Derek, who is in the Marine Corps and is unwilling to care too deeply due to having watched too many loved ones die, avoids Peyton until Lucas comes and talks to him about her. He and Peyton develop a healthy sibling relationship and he helps her come to terms with her fear, not only of Derek but of confessing her feelings to Lucas.
Peyton is unwilling to ruin the friendship that she and Lucas have, especially until she is sure that he and Brooke are over.

Derek tells her that he is being deployed to Iraq.
That night, Lucas comes over to Peyton's to tell her that it is finally over between him and Brooke. Despite their age difference, it was always easy to root for Andy and Karen. His exit from the show was rather sudden and likely just a result of the writers wanting to pair Keith and Karen. It was nice to watch their relationship unfold the first time around. Although Andy could never replace Keith, it was kind of the writers to give her a happily ever after.
Brooke and Chase It seems strange that interesting characters like Rachel or Alex were pushed to the sidelines, while far more bland ones, like Quinn or Chase, got increasingly more screen time in later seasons of OTH.
Chase entered the scene as a Clean Teen who Brooke fell for in season 4. Sadly though, that was not the case. Chase is nice and all, but in the end he was just a placeholder, and a boring one at that.

Mouth and Millie certainly had their fair share of ups and downs, but most fans were happy that they wound up together in the end. Much of what disappointed fans was the amount of screen time given to new characters Felix and Anna Taggaro.Lucas & Peyton: All At Once
Much of the season was just boring and this couple was one of very few interesting elements. Rachel was a great addition to the series, but the writers were not kind to her after graduation. One of the only core characters to not be a success directly after high school, Rachel destroyed her modeling career as her addiction spiraled out of control.
He lied to Brooke, was cruel to Peyton, and had no amount of tolerance whatsoever, even for his own sister.
Worse still, his ego was bigger than it had any right to be. Most girls date at least one bad boy, but viewers were never onboard with this romance. We all knew that Brooke deserved better. Sadly, she and Mouth both had a hard time facing up to the fact that Felix was just a jerk. Part of what made Quinn so painfully bland was that she had no real flaws and therefore never took shape as a fully formed character.
Lucas and Brooke The love triangle is not the issue here, but rather the reveal at the end of season 2 that Lucas had feelings for Brooke.
Sadly, by the time Brooke and Lucas were finally a couple, the five month marriage between the actors had ended, leaving their onscreen counterparts together, but sharing little screen time. Brooke was so cruel to Peyton that it was just plain out of character.
Aside from that, Lucas spent so much time proclaiming his undying love for Brooke that the sudden realization of his true feelings for Peyton rang a bit false.
