Nuzlocke S3

Nuzlocke S3

by Yuriakashu
Nuzlocke S^3 a pokemon hard mode comic where the protagonist, Yule, cannot catch pokemon; he can only be gifted them. With this ruleset, there are roughly seven pokemon available. The usual second rule still applies: if a pokemon faints, it is dead.

[The comic started in 2012 exclusively on dA; I am currently rectifying that and posting a page here every day until we catch up! I will also be typesetting all dialogue, etc. for easier reading.]

And so, welcome to Arc 3-- or, as I like to put it, the Save Silver arc.

Cl ick here for the original update on dA! Some smears to edit still (and some that I could not due to how the original layers were arranged), but thanks to some tips given in dA comments, I put a piece of paper underneath my hand when drawing, which immediately made a difference. So, fewer extreme smears from here-on.
Silver has been in the crowd of every single gym battle up until this one.

Edit-wise, OOF, welcome to the worst page. Cl ick here to see the original I was working with; I'll wait. I started with cranking up both the brightness and contrast of the piece and then-- as I knew I would have to-- went panel-by-panel and edited out every smear I could. This, before even Eclipse's big gym moment, was the page I was both most regretting to edit and most looking forward to. Because now? This page is fixed. It's all downhill from here.

Just isn't ready.

Cl ick here for the original version of this comic on dA! Interesting edit with Yule's scream (put it over Yule instead of having it cut off behind him or squish it), but other than that, more smear edits. So many smear edits ...

Add this to the list of things I meant to introduce really early on but never got around to because I didn't start scripting until surfing: 1) the game reset at Azelea Gym, 2) nuzlocker perks.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Loooots of clean-up, especially with Yule. White pen at 50% opacity works really well.

Look at my sons!! Yule's new design took a while to get used to. Eclipse is getting all the attention he deserves now that I could finally keep the spotlight on him. One mon left, after all.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Some clean-up and typesetting here, basically delaying all of the edits a future page promises.

Oh, hi, Yule. Nice 'do.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA--! Gameplay-wise, Olivine Gym was easy, even without Fire Fang. Editing-wise, this page didn't have a CSP file?? even though i know that there was editing done with this page before now. Oh, well; just the usual edits here.

We return with a rainy scene.

Cl ick here for the original update on dA! Ah!! Finally, CSP files for comic pages. 2017 was the year I got super serious about S3 (maybe too seriously) and experimented a lot with digital effects. For instance, on this page, I found a rain brush for the droplets. These pages are already mostly cleaned-up, too, meaning just some touch-ups and the usual type-setting here.

A slightly more glitchy void. I used nothing but the shading on the previous page to fill this one up.

No way back but the water.

Cl ick here for the original version of this page. Unique edit here: the last panel originally had, in white type, when the next arc would start (January 15th, 2017, beginning the best year of S3 bar none). Obviously, this date is now wrong, especially with daily updates-- but, I didn't save a layered file, just the .jpg. So, I had to take some shading from the night sky Silver stares out into and cover it up. I then typed up and replaced the original next with a >CONTINUE.

Fair warning: tomorrow's update will be another page of darkness-- and then, Arc 3. Get hyped.

Fun fact, deceased pokemon can learn HMs.

Hey! This page didn't originally exist, but just like with the background in Ifrit's death, it is something I had wanted to do. A break. A pause. A moment to realize just how much happened in the last two saves.

The most painful save I've ever done.

Still one left.

Cl ick here for the original update on dA. This was the page I was dreading to edit. It scanned horribly for no reason, and there were smears everywhere. Eclipse deserves the best, though. I adjusted the levels to give myself less work and then worked through erasing smudges, etc., from every single panel. It took a while but not as long as I thought it would, and I'm really happy with the result.

Cl ick here for the original update on dA. Tried to adjust the levels with this page. I think it worked--?

Two down.

Cl ick here for the original update on dA. Major edit here: the last panel's background. I originally wanted to copy-paste p. 296 - 297's cool background behind Equinox for Ifrit's last moment here, but I ran out of time when originally posting this (was moving into the apartment that I moved out of last month). So, I remedied that here.

Go, Ifrit, go!!

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! One of those "can I just rescan this pls" pages.

This is a double update; go back for the previous page.

Like with most battles, I drew through this gym battle move-by-move. This is exactly what happened.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA. This. was a difficult page to edit. I kept Equinox half-smudged because cleaning him up felt ... wrong.

Double update. The next page will go up at 1 pm CST.

Cl ick here for the original update.

I still love that third panel. I still love this page.

Heads up to those reading as these pages are posted: double update tomorrow! That means one page at 11 am CST, one page at 1 pm CST. Again, this is to match the original posting on dA-- and, honestly, to get to page 300 all the sooner.
