About Me

Hey all, the name's Bananakin, or Anikin. I'm 22 years old and currently in college. I'm learning japanese through self study and WILL go to Japan someday. C:
I've been drawing comics since high school, and started posting here in late 2007.
And if it isn't obvious, I really like pokemon.

The only comic that I am actively working on is Pokemon Break!

Other comics:
Abyssal Ruins- May start up after PB! Is complete.
Atomic Tangerine

@Vye Brante: Thanks Vye, I am looking forward to seeing my family at least. :)

I hear ya, I'm bad with entering contests, too. I was thinking of having two categories just for that reason. One would be more of a raffle, I guess. I was thinking just having anyone who wanted a chance to leave a comment with a certain word or phrase and I'd write down the names and have my cousin pick one out of a hat or something.

@RioBlitzle: Yeah, that's the main problem and why I haven't done someting like this sooner. Maybe I'll do a separate category where the prize would be a drawing for anyone who doesn't what to do that either. That way their prize could just be sent through a smackjeeves PM.

@sconic123: I've seen other comics do contests and I've always wanted to do one, but never had. I'll have to start thinking on how to do it!

@kachi7771: Haven't decided yet! Just wanted to see if anyone would be interested. Right now I have a few ideas, but not sure yet.

I won't beat around the bush, a family member just passed on so I haven't had time to finish the next page yet or the desire to. I'm flying home for the service, so I'll most likely work on it on the plane while I have nothing else to do. Next Tuesday I should be back on track.

In lighter news, I've been thinking about doing a contest. Would anyone be interested? The prize would be some small pokemon plushes and probably some japanese candy.

Wooo-hoo! Loving this cover page. Your coloring is improving a whole lot. The shading on the fur looks so good. Makes him/her look so fuzzy! I'm curious as to that egg now. I hope we find out about that in this chapter and that's not just a tease. :)

@Killerat: Thanks!

@Teal Talonflame: Yeah, is it their way of arguing? ^^

@Pokemanchaz: Hahaha From the look on Squishy's face, he isn't sure either.

@Luigi_96: It has been a while since Missingno's last appearance. :)

@Tiberius(guest): Oh my!

@GrovyleGoodbye128: We'll see. That part is FINALLY almost here. :D

@Patch(Guest): Patch?! hahaha
Tuesday should be the next update! Still working on that page now. :)

Well now, who could that be?
Tried to fit more into this page to speed things up haha Hopefully this is halfway through the chapter.

I still can't get over how different the pages look on my computer to my tablet. Only mildly frustrating that the colors aren't what I wanted haha

Yay! Do you sketch out an entire chapter before you start to post? I'm always impressed when an artist has that much planned and ready.

@Timothy: True, it does have that. haha

@Pokemanchaz: Yeah, that would probably work better. I've never been good at the "noises" part


@GrovyleGoodbye128: Thanks. I just feel with how slow I am to update that these pages just draaaaaag by. Patch is finally starting to be confident! At least with Squishy around..

@Luigi_96: Kind of. :)

Is this week four in a row for updating?

The whole time I was working on this page I wasn't happy with it. I couldn't figure out just what it was that bothered me about it until just now. Nothing happens on this page. That's what bothers me. When there are pages like this, it's hard for me to guess how many pages will be in a chapter, ya know?
