Come on it's a shit comic

A story about fumbling your way through your life and being picked on by some weird bird thing.
And on DeviantArt


Updates:
-Will always update on Saturday
-second and third updates depend on how my buffer is going
--may update on Weds/Thurs
I try to draw this comic around my life, and sometimes my buffer gets unhealthy so I drop back to 1 page a week.

The concept for the story is based on some other pokemon-universe story idea that I've had since 2009, before I had ever heard of Nuzlockes.

[+] Rules
Rules:
-name all pokemon
-if pokemon faints then it is dead
-catch first pokemon on each route

--modifier: no duplicates on first encounter
--modifier: if duplicate on second encounter, then must catch it or no pokemon from the route
--modifier: special event pokemon are different to catches
--modifier: game corner pokemon is an encounter

-if starter dies: game over
Exception: I allowed a trade (oh no woe is me), conditions were that the actual trade happened late-game, trading a level 40 vulpix for a level 12 growlithe. It's included early in the game instead of when it actually happened. This is because I initially started this idea when I did a partial run on my crystal version and had some similar pokemon.screw the rules I have money

Awesome run so far! I love your art style; the world really feels alive. The detail in these first few pages is truly excellent, like the signs behind the car and the rattata (I think?) skeleton in Elm's office. Your poses feel nice and fluid, and every character has their own distinctive look. Heck, you just use perspective very well in general. I like the dialogue a lot too. It feels very natural.

I'm especially fond of your depiction of Totodile. Orm is awfully cute. I like his long neck and spiky little arms, and his speech bubbles are great.

Awesome work so far! I can't wait to see more!

I'm enjoying this so far! I just read through all the pages, and I like how you pace it. The characters are nice and distinct, and I look forward to seeing how you handle Cass. Orm is adorable, and his facial expressions are fantastic!

The handwriting was a little hard to read in a couple places, but overall it works with the style of the comics and is readable. I'm looking forward to reading more of this.

Good start. The first page works well in setting up Cass' emotional situation in just a few snapshots. And I like your sleeker take on Totodile's design. Should be interesting to see where you go from here.

Hi guys!
I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I am currently enjoying writing it.
Do let me know if you can't read my handwriting at any point, so that I can translate into actual English hahaha.

I'm really open to feed back, so letting me know about stuff like handwriting is excellent (:

I hope I can hold up to expectation!

Great art style, I love when comic creators create their own version of Pokemon we all know. The plot seems interesting as well, consider me a follower .

I really adore Orm's design. Usually totodiles look more stocky but yours is slimmer and more reptilian/lizard than croc ya know? It's really nice (as well as your art style too). I'm interested in your protag's past, especially her arrests. That death must have hit her hard :/ That would make any future deaths interesting to show.

Hi!

I based Orm's design a little more on things like ratcroc and boarcroc, and just probably overemphasised the forearm scutes hahahaha. I didn't want to go for the heavier modern croc design.
Huehuehue, I will probably do a couple of extra background comics for a her at a later time (:

Thanks for following ;P I'll look forward to any feedback you guys have!

Oh hey! I've been following this over on dA and I almost didn't realize that you were, uh, you. I'm glad I found you over on the forums as well though.
I really like how you've been drawing the Pokemon - especially Totodile. I'll continue to be reading this!

This is really cool so far, I like your style a lot! And I'll just echo everyone when I say I really like the design of Orm, and it also seems like our protag here has an interesting background. c:

but you have no pokeballs awwwwwl

Thanks for the positive feedback about Orm's change of design (:

Jade: haha :D I started posting it on deviantArt, I was actually way nervous about putting it up here for some reason. It was kind of like the next step in 'you can't bail now'. Hahah!

Emilia: Thank you! I chewed through your comic, it's really amazing, I have it bookmarked now :D Haha, yeah, she does have a bit of an interesting background, but as long as we all use little words she should be all right.

Aww, Orm! As always, I love the art design here. That has to be the single most threatening Chikorita I've ever seen. With looks like that, it actually makes sense to me that an antagonist would choose it. The expressions are great, especially Orm's, and I love Cass's snark in this confrontation. The little details like Cass's sweat and the sloshing water in the bottle really help bring the scenes to life.

I liked how even though Orm doesn't speak his trainer understands him. I also agree, Silver's Chikorita does look intimidating.

always fun to see people take diffrent spins with the pokemon in art styles. You can still tell which pokemon it is, but seeing how its different is a lot of fun. It brings new perspective to certain pokemon.
holy, just read that buffer size. That makes me super exited. Says that you aren't only doing this for gratification from others (obviously even if you dont have one doesn't necessarily mean that you are, its just I've seen a lot going ' i want to be that cool author with lots of fans' and gets like 4 pages done), which means its a lot more likely to last longer. You probably more confident in your art style, and practiced. And several more things.
if you would like a response from me, its best to PM me. I only check the forums a couple times a month, if that.

Looking forward to see where this is going and seeing your interpretations of some of the other mons!

UPDATE: Chp1p8

Hahaha awww man I hope that you guys weren't expecting an awesome rival battle. Because for serious: nope.

LeopardWriting: 'understands' she'll miss a lot of stuff because a) she's a moron and b) she's not thaaaat good at reading non-humans. :D thanks though! It's interesting making a green bean with giant desu eyes intimidating.

Degree: :D thank you I will try!

PossumFlavored: That's good feedback thank you, I was a little worried that he'd look too different to the normal totodile, but at the same time, I didn't want to draw the normal totodile for like... one hundred pages or something. Haha yeah, buffers. Not gonna lie, I'm freaking out a little that people seem to like it so far. But yeah, I'm doing this story because I've never been able to stick with a long story and see it through to the end, and I want to with this one. Gives me a base to practice character development, drawing people, different expressions, and all that jazz. And also draw pokemon, because unf pokemon are cool bro.

Umberon: huehuehue his widdle raptor face is super cute. This nuzlocke run made me a big fan of totodiles (:

Jadethestone: are you ready for the most underwhelming rival battle ever?
