Pokemon Moon Comic 67: Team Update 10 (plus bonus image)

As hinted at last time, Mimikyu has been added to the party, slick, along with Mareanie. This is a bittersweet point–Sludgy-Mouth is gone, who ended up being ridiculously fun to draw in the comic, but she is gone now. On the other hand, now we have Slick. MIMIKYU JOKES FOREVER.

I also have a bonus image. I’ve been drawing these in MS Paint but I’m going to move to Gimp entirely so I can use layers, but because of that it would be easier to start drawing it with smooth edges instead of the pixelly ones I’ve been doing. I made a test drawing with both styles and I still don’t know ahh

And yes this is an Inkling from Splatoon with a Mareanie hairstyle. You can change your hairstyle in Spla2n and I really want a Mareanie hairstyle available.

New Character Profile page: Ropak

There’s a new character profile up for the character introduced in this month’s Wandering Fortunes chapter, Ropak! He is of mysterious origins with unknown parents and is sometimes lazy. Those things are apparently not mutually exclusive. Ropak is the third main character of WF and sticks with Alden and Top throughout the story. He’s also 13 years old, but that’s okay because wrallots mature at like age 10.

As usual, let me tell you about Patreon. You can give creators money at Patreon. You can give me money at Patreon. If you give $3 per month you get to read chapters half a month early! The next chapter is going up for that level in a few moments!

Pokemon Moon Comic 66: Wonderful Trade

FINALLY

It’s a true story, too. I had been trying to get a Mareanie, but Corsola is rare and even when I found one it was a pain to make it call for help so when I finally got a Mareanie but its nature was bad I figured I would just make some Mareanie eggs, that’d be easier! Fortunately I got a female. But I didn’t have a male of the right egg group! I could’ve just gotten a male Wingull or something, but I figured Wonder Trading to get what I needed would be more interesting. Since I almost practically skipped gen 6 I never got to try it much.

By the time I was done, not only did I get this Chinese Mimikyu, but I also got a Litten, a Rowlett, AND a Popplio! (The last of which ended up being the Mareanie’s father.)

Pokemon Moon Comic 65: Pass

The ride Pokemon are so big that you can very clearly be in a trainers’ line of sight but they won’t notice because your hitbox or whatever doesn’t extend that far. Meanwhile the hitbox for overworld objects extends about twice their size.

Wandering Fortunes update Chapter 5: Wonder of Fortune

Wonderful! The fifth chapter of Wandering Fortunes is here, and it introduces our third main character, Ropak! It is he who sets off the story’s main events, and it is he who introduces us to the story’s second species, the wrallot. I’m excited to finally get Ropak into the open so we now have our three main characters for Wondering Fortunes. Let the good times roll! For us, anyway. For our characters, ehhh…

Don’t forget that patrons of $3+ get to read chapters early. Chapter 6 will be available for them in mid-May!

I also should have some Darmenzi news soon. For reals this time!

I’m also working one everything oh gourd I’m so busy what if I just play video games for several hours instead

Pokemon Moon Comic 64: Metamorphosis

Gen 7 was very good for Bug-types, which is good considering the terrible showing it had in gen 6. And Araquanid is kind of ridiculous for a Pokemon that evolves on level 22.

Also, happy I get to draw Ribombee now. Like Cutiefly, its appendages are very fluid and wobbly.

Pokemon Moon Comic 63: Crack in Time

EITHER THAT OR  COUNT BLECK FORCED A MARRIAGE BETWEEN KIRLIA AND BLASTOISE.

Coincidentally, the new season of Doctor Who started last weekend! For a while now I’ve actually kicked around the idea of Pokemon Time Lords, basically Time Lords but they’re Pokemon, with the unique feature that upon regeneration they become entirely different Pokemon. The Doctormon is a Wobbuffet but upon regeneration becomes a Smeargle. It’s a concept I’d still like to do something with someday, but as I have the art skill of… well… *looks up* I couldn’t go about drawing it myself.

Location profile for Mintop

A blast from the past that I promise is in the future, next week I am going to work on getting where I need to be to get Darmenzi to a finished state.

But for today, we have a page on the planet Mintop. I figured now that we have other planets in play there should be some pages on them, as well. The other planets will get their pages when more is shown in the current story.

PS $3+ patrons get to read the next chapter today.

Pokemon Moon Comic 61 and 62

I really like how this one came out. The book, Oranguru considering it was my first time drawing it. Some of the Pokemon were cramped, especially around Dewpider and Wishiwashi, but it worked out well. I also realized the circles on the book should’ve been angled a bit but oh well. I liked it enough to make a version without names.

This one is just silly.

Yooka-Laylee is here (and updates are near!)

Hey! I got a game in the mail yesterday! It’s Yooka-Laylee! I made a video.

I will have many more videos over the next week with more detailed thoughts on my impressions of the game. I went on a bit on Twitter about my thoughts regarding setting it up and I think a bit about the actual rollout of the game to Kickstarter backers, or, I might have only said that on Kickstarter itself.

Unrelated, I was thinking recently I don’t post here often enough. I often say that. Not here, though. I don’t post here often enough to say that here often enough. But if I keep saying I don’t post here often enough then maybe I will have said it here often.

I realized I say quite a bit on Twitter and sometimes have updates there. However, not everyone has Twitter. I do not blame those who don’t. I want to put notable or important updates on my website more, but I realized posting on here is just a hassle compared to Twitter. I have to go through several pages, oh my goodness, but mostly it’s just that WordPress is slow. For some reason it loads and moves slow and slows down my browser. I don’t know what it is.

Anyway I’m going to post simple updates here more often, such as each individual Pokemon comic instead of 10 at once (Next one coming tomorrow!). Nnnnot the YL videos, though. That’s a bit much. If you’re interested I plan to just have a new video once a day in a normal week (and some extra ones this weekend) until I run out of videos to post. I also might try to make posts in here when I sometimes run the risk of going on for a bit on Twitter. I need to make this place look alive, after all. It’s way more important than Twitter. Twitter’s just dumb jokes. This is writing.

Oh speaking of updates I’ll also have a new profile tomorrow or Sunday. I’ll be busy tomorrow with birthday shenaginags (oh yeah today’s my birthday) and Sunday I’ll probably go visit relatives but I’m sure I’ll get it up one of those days.
