"Road to Glory" is yet another one of those nuzlocke run comics.

This one revolves around Red, an 11 year old boy travelling through the world of Pokemon Yellow.

Accompany him and his Pokemon on their quest to become the very best!

(Be warned that the earlier pages look pretty bad, but I'm slowly improving lol)

@Nashew: Yep! I'm back to draw comic pages and disappear for months on end, and I'm all outta... months? ...Or something lol
Oh hey, it's you again! xD
It's great to see you return :D
@Marchylls: I actually had to do that myself before I drew this page, it has been awfully long haha

Thanks for sticking around! :)
Welcome back
People are still around, though I may have to reread a bit to figure out what happened again.
It's nice to see updates, best of luck getting used to that tablet.
Is Zeke gonna eat his words?
WAIT ANOTHER YEAR TO FIND OUT

is anybody still here whats up guys lol

I could tell you a story about how busy I was with life, but in reality I just stopped drawing for a while because I was mad that I couldn't catch up to ten years of mouse experience with a tablet in a few months. Oops...

I'm still not quite there yet. But it doesn't feel like an unattainable goal anymore, so that's something.
(The next page is gonna kill me though yikes)

I know what it's like to get used to a tablet. It takes time. Good luck!

Up until now, everything in Road to Glory has been drawn with a mouse. Sketches, outlines, colors, effects. But everything changed when the fire nation-- Uh, but a few weeks ago I got my hands on an actual graphics tablet! (I borrowed it from my best friend, IT'S HER FAULT IM NOT UPDATING jk it's mine alone)

As you can see above, it's giving me lots of trouble XD
After more than a decade of drawing digitally with a mouse, it's really, really hard to get used to a tablet. Right now, it sets my art skills back by what looks and feels like several years. I've realized that the only way to improve is to stop using the mouse and only draw with the tablet.

I can, however, see the *potential* of being good with one. You can get smooth, natural looking lines a lot faster than with a mouse and pen pressure is a wonderful thing.

This nuzlocke's orignal purpose was being a quick little project to get better at drawing. But it has long since turned into a story I want to tell, with characters that have grown on me. I'm so happy that there are people who like to read it, so I want to do it justice!
I can't bring myself to draw pages for RTG with my current tablet skills, but for my own sake, I can't bring myself to pick my trusty mouse back up for it, either.

Again, I'm sorry for the lack of updates and hope you guys can understand where I'm coming from :(

In the long run, I think this will lead to shorter update times and possibly better looking pages, although for now it only means more waiting...

I can't tell when exactly I'll be comfortable enough to deliver the next pages (I only got two rough sketches done before i got the tablet), but I keep practicing and am slooowy improving. Maybe it'll only be a few weeks. Maybe longer. But I'll be back - Red and the others won't have to spend yet another christmas in Mt Moon lmao

Thank you for reading this wall of text and for your patience and for being awesome!
So beast. You sir have earned a fave!
Just made an account to keep up with this comic. Keep up the great work!
@Luigi_96: I'm glad you think it looks good, thank you! :D

Well, I've never truly worked with a tablet, so I don't know how much faster I'd be.

It can be time-consuming because I need a sketch so detailed that I just have to trace most of the lines, so I can focus on making them look good/smooth instead of making the DRAWING look good, because I already took care of that in the sketch. (idk if that's understandable lol)

(Also, I do sometimes resort to vectors for long lines or when something has to look very symmetrical!
For example, when Red is facing forward, I often make a vector for his face. iirc those are the only two vector lines on this page though, minus the panel lines of course)
@Laufente: Like, how do you manage to make this look so good with a mouse? It doesn't look like it's vector art, so you must have a lot of patience.
@Luigi_96: What do you mean? :c
@Laufente: How do you manage that O_O
lol
