Why do I hate myself so much?
Past Me: 'I want to make a page with beautiful, lush meadows and an impressive architecture shot of the first Gym! But ... I have no idea how to draw this. Meh, I'll just let Future Me deal with it.'
Future Me while sketching: 'We learned to draw perspective in art class at school every year, so why can't I draw perspective now? Oh right, we always had to draw the same boring picture with the same perspective no artist ever uses.'
Future Me while drawing lineart: :iconlazycryplz:

Then I added a cheesy lens flare to distract you from the wobbly lines.

Er, now let me tell you more trivia about this page.
:bulletblack: It's not an iPhone. It's a Strawberry Phone. :D Will be properly shown some time later.
:bulletblack: If you don't remember why Nathan was mad at Sara, please read the previous page again. This is one of the key scenes for the relationship dynamics in the team.
:bulletblack: Everyone makes the bird the meanie, huh? I'm using the in-game natures as a starting point for their personalities, so there was no other choice. :XD: But don't worry, he has some interesting quirks. Yes, I did name a bird 'Pilot'. And it wasn't even the first time...
:bulletblack: Rijon has a national flag now. I hope it doesn't look like France's on most monitors.
:bulletblack: Please enjoy Sam's new hipster outfit!

Next time: Battles! And plushies. But mostly battles.

Grass tutorial I followed until I got too lazy: Click.

Well Sara might look terrible, but she's keeping up the tradition of new hats and that's all that matters XD

If there was a large enough diamond, you could drill through it with a fully hardened Metapod!

meh the perspective looks fine
also oh my gosh we're going full mediocre teen show on Nickelodeon with the "strawberry phone" thing. I still remember iCarly (I THINK) and its banana phone (or was it pear? I DON'T CARE)

thank
With the wisdom and the love for terrible Pokémon puns I have now, I would have made it a Cherubi phone.

Pidgey hats are good.

Black Pidgey hats are better.

Man, how cool would black have been as a colour for shiny Pidgey.

On that, we agree.

(It's actually a joke I made in the original attempt of Lucas Pearl Rival, referring to the fact that Kanto had 151 Pokémon originally, but in YTWC's nuzlocke, he caught a Starly. I though how would they miss that, and I simply concluded that it was a Black Pidgey in Kanto language. And thus, one of my longest running gags was born, even if I never use it that much)

The lens flare distraction worked perfectly on me. 
Oh damn, now Benny can't be used as a blunt weapon anymore... but he's a really fancy hat now :D

Btw I really love all the details you put into the backgrounds and Sara herself, like her hair getting mussed up and the dirt on her legs.

Mwahaha : D
Oh... All this time I've been sad because Benny couldn't be a hat anymore, but actually he just needs to hold still and keep balance to be the biggest, fanciest hat ever. :happycry:

Thank you! Putting characters through the mill is fun. ouo

what the heck is with nuzlocks and thier bird being on thier head
Krisantyne's avatar
Krisantyne Digital Artist
Maybe because all the birds are obnoxious little punks who don't know personal space. xP

Using only baby pokemon is never a good choice.
