With this thing off my conscience, I might be able to focus on my thesis and not die so much in the last few weeks, right? Right? :dummy: ... Well, you know how that goes.

Oh boy, where do I start.
Since it has been so long again, I won't hold it against you if you forgot everything, so have some reminders of relevant things.
The "Mystery Letter" was received here.
Lachlan is here, here and here.
The lovely shorts club appeared here.
Oh no did I really just ask you to look at my old art please end me

I was looking forward to drawing Rapidash so much. This desire has been stilled for at least 150 years. :'D Dear horse lovers, I formally apologize for everything. I did get the hang of it by the end at least a little y/y? ; u ;
He only has a halter because it seemed kinda wrong to me to put a bridle on a horse that can be commanded by voice and that wants to talk to you?? But it was also awkward to put nothing and I found out that some people DO ride real horses with an ordinary halter, so I guess it's okay with a super tame and intelligent Pokémon??
Yeahhh okay, you will see more rental Rapidash over the course of the story (it's still better than a bike) (NO, they are not in the game), but not for this long again. :V


Cameos!
Origal Maze is the route of the annoying couples ... so I replaced them with some not-annoying ones! :dummy: For a community that's so shipping crazy, I had a hard time remembering many official human couples. But I didn't want to draw more than these anyway, so... xD
:iconfroodals: :icongiantturniparmy: Peanut & Tard, and Peanut's Zebstrika Duplicy (who I butchered terribly)! I'm also sorry about the failed noodle arms. And for breaking Tard's leg. ^^; At least you got to make out before.
:iconky-nim: Kynim & Roark and Haisi & Lucas!
:iconangel-nuzlockes: Sara & Orion! (It happened. The Saras are together in one picture. We can all go home now. But please let me know if there are any more haha)

So what's gonna happen now? They're really going back to Merson City. Yes, backtracking even further, I'm sorry. :iconlazycryplz:
I promise there's a point to all of this, and I'll tell you what happened in-game next time. And after thattttt, we'll get to some delicious PLOT!


Next time: Someone almost dies, but nice things happen as well. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ *☆゚.*・。゚

Just curious: what did Orlando mean by 'no shooting please'

When a horse breaks a leg, that's usually impossible to fix, so the horse cannot survive. In the past, people used to just shoot their horses, which makes a great horror story to tell to a little Ponyta when you want them to be careful.

Nowadays, in our world, fatally injured horses get euthanized in a non-violent way. And in this Pokémon world, they have very advanced medical technology and can fix the leg. Unlike a real horse, Orlando is completely aware of his fragility, but he doesn't actually have to fear for his life. xD

I thought it was something either sinister or a little dark :)

Since it's related to death, I think it counts as a little dark haha

Here I may or may not have channeled my memories of being in a long distance relationship while everyone else could frolic in the pleasant spring weather with their partner every day.

Thanks!! I would die if I had a Pokémon that’s permanently on fire on my team, but drawing them occasionally is fun.

Wow, I really wanna be able to draw like you in the future!! The colours are just right, the art style is adorable and unique, and you know how to give humans clothes that match the pokémon style! It's wonderful!!

Awww thanks so much!
But your style is awesome too, it's just completely different! If I did lined backgrounds, I would want them to look like yours, and the colors are pretty and harmonious. The look of your comic makes me want to read it. Not sure when I'll get to it, but I will! ovob
Adanel's avatar
Aww, you're too kind! *-* It may be different, but it's neither unique nor awesome or charming. Yours are really charming, they feel real, they're creative! *-*

There's that little something I can't describe! It feels like you are able to have a general view of a scene! Mines don't look harmonious, they look like a bunch of details stuck with each other. That and your characters also feel "pokémon-universe-like"! They just fit perfectly!! *-* The proportions, the clothes style, the haircut... It's just awesome!!!! =D

So I'll take notes and remember your awesome drawings to improve!! =)

Don't feel obliged to read it! *///* But if you do I hope you'll enjoy it!

Shhhh, I'm very sure that your style is good ;p
I like the environment in this one: My Trainer is an Idiot: A-48 Most people do one establishing shot and then the rest of the backgrounds are just the sky, but here we have a high level of detail all the way. If that doesn't show a sense for the general view of a scene, I don't know what would. And the colors are ok sign f2u 
Adanel's avatar
Whether good or not, my style doesn't look the way I want it to be, so I try to learn by watching great art like yours! =)
Aww, you're very sweet!!! *-* Thank you for explaining in details, that truly helps a lot!!!^^ When the background is only the sky, it's faster to draw! XD But I still try to vary.
About colours, how do you choose yours? *_* They're neither dull nor flashy, they're just right!! *-*

Oh yeah I know that feeling, it took a while to get my style to look like I wanted. Hope you get there soon too!
Here are some of my somewhat qualified opinions on color: I pick most colors from photos refs, I still don't know what colors a tree can have lmao. When picking colors freehand, it's important that they aren't fully saturated. Putting a Soft Light layer with some orange or something on top at the end helps with tying everything together. Annnd shading tends to magically look better when you make it darker and more saturated than first planned. I currently use #907276 on Multiply for shading the comic.

Thank you very much!!^^ Glad that you could find the art style you wanted! =D

Oooh, nice! So after you put the colours you add a filter on them all to harmonize them?
I did my best to avoid the saturated, "non-printable" colours, but sometimes I feel like they're the ones that could give a nice cartoon look to pictures. Maybe it's something good artists know how to deal with.
Duly noted!! =D So that's how you make your shading looks so good! I'll try to make my shades darker next time!! Thank you a lot for the advice!!! =D

(And thank you a lot for the watch, btw!!! >///<)

Correct! Filters and all the other color adjustment stuff Photoshop has take very little time but help a lot with polishing a piece.
There are uses for very saturated colors for sure, but they shouldn't be large parts of the background and stuff.
I'm glad the advice was useful! :D
