So yeah, after seeing a couple of people's comics, and finding out what it actually was ABOUT, I decided to give it a try!

Going to try practicing expressions and dynamic movements, while not obsessing about making it really neat. Was very inspired by PurpleKecleon's one, hopefully I won't copy it TOO much :P

The game has already been quite eventful, I hope I'll be able to represent that well in the comic.

When I saw this page I had to think of Papaya's HeartGold immediately! XD I can clearly see that she inspired you! But that's not a bad thing of course! :love:

Hahahaha, I always thought the same thing about those Poké-People: 10-year-olds go on dangerous adventures instead of visiting school, most adult people are at home, telling and giving random sh*t to people who intrude their houses, instead of working! XD The Pokémon world has a pretty messed up society! XD

Haha yes PurpleKecleon's Papaya comic really inspired me with the style and pacing of the comic. It's in part because I know I could never be bothered to do a whole comic quite detailed, but I like the idea of some panels being quite rough and others being a bit more worked on. The main reason for me personally behind the comic was to challenge myself to do different expressions, to work on perspective and movement, etc. A lot of my pictures end up too static imo.

I almost wished I lived in the pokemon world :( Screw going and learning a proper trade NO JUST GO ENSLAVE LITTLE CREATURES AND MAKE THEM BEAT ON EACH OTHER. Is all good.

I know what you mean. When I started my run I was dead set on not putting that much effort in the comic because it takes such a lot of time! But... I guess it's because of my stupid perfectionistic personality that the quality and effort rises with every new page. X'D

Yes, my reason was to learn how to draw (crazy) facial expressions and Pokémon. And backgrounds. Because I suck at them. XD

Hellz yes! Who hasn't dreamt of becoming a Pokémon Trainer as a child? XD I certainly did. And I wanted to become a pirate, a musketeer, a wizard and a Jedi as well! XD
The life of a Pokémon character surely is amazing and carefree! I mean, some little kid will take care of evil groups and terrorists anyway. XD So why bother to form a police at all?

No! it's better to dot the way you are most comfortable with!
once you colored everything, It is very hard to not color everything

True, and I think I'd make my hands bleed trying to colour it all.

Thanks ^_______^ I realised afterwards that actually her colours are a lot like a totodile's, which fits it in with the comic actually.

Thank you! I hope I manage to keep it that way throughout the comic C: I'm paranoid about stuffing it full of too many troll expressions!

Lol, perfect way to start a comic. I have always wondered how people got educated in the world of Pokemon :D

Lol yes, you find out that really.. they don't! I mean if every child has to go off into the wilderness to have their own 'adventure' how are they supposed to get an education? I figured that in this world, no one has a degree, and most of their 'technology' is made from cardboard and masking tape.

Hehe, cardboard Pokedex's XD . Their knowledge must come from magical powers or something.
