Next: Someday soon!


~: NuzRooke Sun is a collaborate project, incorporating the storytelling and artwork skills of over thirty online artists - a team called Rooke's Army. Check out their work on the NuzRooke Sun group page! :~


It's taken half the year, but a new page of NuzRooke Sun is finally finished!
The hold-up was entirely on my part, with not getting the sketch done quickly at all. My final semester of school, graduation from university, and TWO cross-country moves are what I blame. But now I'm happily settled in at my new job as a story revisionist at Kuku Studios, and of late have had lots of time to work on NuzRooke Sun AND Dragontry (for those of you reading the other comic I do!)

I really wanted to show our boys having fun and being best friends in this page. Taylor kind of got a rocky intro to the comic, especially - he really isn't as much of a jerk as he was in those first pages! Not that he doesn't have his issues that he's working on. But I hope y'all are rooting for him as much as the others. <3
His brother Granite, named after the late Granite the Golem, who goes by Grant, left Johto a year previously to pursue his dream as a contest Pokemon! His manager Millie, as well as his other teammates, are all from an OmegaRuby run that I never finished (but whose characters I adored.) We might see more of them later on, who knows? I'd love to have a little side series about Grant's adventures in Hoenn!

And then we have a mysterious, frightened thief, and an explosion of color. Interesting. That's probably not plot relevant at all.


NuzRooke Sun refers to its prequel, NuzRooke, as well as other nuzlocke stories. Read them here:

Thanks to:
:iconflamebrandt: and :iconfirefly703: for the inking; :iconthetruegge: and Firefly for the coloring; and Firefly also did the backgrounds! Big thanks to her, she really did the lion's share on this page!

I love the colors and interactions with Bark, his Pokémon and Kukui and the bottom with our "mystery thief".

Most action in a phonecall ever!! I love how everything is timed so that Professor Kukui doesn't suspect a thing. Absolutely hilarious! :lol: rvmp

That was...really cute! :D Both phone conversations were well written and executed, good job!

Just a question: I know I've mentioned this issue before (and it's really my issue) but I'm like 99% of the time on mobile, and these updates don't really load on mobile because the resolution and/or the filesize is so huge. Is there any way you could make these more mobile-user friendly?

Oh shoot, I'd forgotton about the mobile viewing issue... hrm. Do you know of any ways to improve that? I don't know much about ways to make things load better on mobile.

Maybe reduce the file size? Though, that can be tricky to do without destroying the image quality...

Another way would be probably by making these comics in smaller resolution - your comics in general have a fairly simple art style without too many details, so we wouldn't miss too much if this was in smaller resolution. I also feel like the updates in Nuzrooke Sun are in too big resolution and I personally find reading comics in big resolution kinda hard to read, so it's probably just another me issue (and you can feel free to ignore everything I say about the matter :'D)

Is that what's causing the time stream problem in the prologue?

Think Nuzlockes are easy? NOPE!

They're as hard as Rule 34 artists. Rule 34 artists!

And the comics are too slow and serious.

So this is...

Nuzrooke's Sun Nuzlocke!

Half a year is always worth the wait. I'm glad things are going well for you and Rooke's army.

I had to laugh when Kukui thought Bark was a furry boy, and then when his own Barberry (great name by the way) took part in the shenanigans. Also, that explosion of colour is so pretty! AHHHHH!

Okay, so Bark, I know you wanted to high five a Wailord but why in Arceus' name did you feel the need to wear your bag when you were bending over the ship?
Wow, FireFly did an amazing job with the explosion in the last shot!

I'm already loving Bark and his team. :)

Also, I gasped when I saw that Rockruff. They're already adorable in game, and you just made one even cuter. I want ten of them :D

It's back! I've been waiting very (im)patiently for this! Glad to hear you can draw more now that you're settled. Praying things go well at your new job!

I love how you handled the video call that begins the game. You even added Rockruff interrupting Kukui! Nice touch there.

Lillie and Nebby... I wonder how they play into what Mew witnessed in the nuzlocke's prologue.
