Been drawing comics since I was a kid and used to be really serious. Now I do it mostly for fun.

Update time! Finally! Thanks for your patience yet again! This is a pretty long one because I couldn't find a good place to divide it so ... took a bit longer than planned. The battle with Koga went fairly well until Muk popped out. Cogito basically whipped the floor with his koffings and the wheezing but Kato got so unlucky and missed with Dig so many times in a row and Muk managed to boost itself with both minimize and acid armour like, IDK how many times in a row now but ... well ... we'll see how things went next time ...

I also have a kinda second announcement to make. Basically, in case anyone's curious, I do have a tumblr blog where I post art and stuff. I've kept it secret though all these years because I felt a bit guilty whenever I worked on anything that wasn't this comic, and didn't want people to see that I spent a lot more of my drawing time on other things. Which is a bit silly really. So I decided to come fourth with it now! It's mostly fantasy-related watercolours (so much dungeons and dragons inspiration), so maybe not everyone's cup of tea ... but anyway. If anyone's interested, it's right here: http://dorkagedoodles.tumblr.com/

And no, I still can't stress it enough: I'm NOT giving up on this comic until I've been able to tie it all together. It may take some time, since I don't get much artistic satisfaction from doing it (hence why the quality of the art fluctuates a lot and it's nowhere near the stuff on my blog), but I WILL finish it.
Before anyone points it out: yes, I aware of the most blatant misspelling in the entire comic here, I just wish I had noticed it before I coloured, scanned and edited the entire thing. xD So 'Sluge' stays right where it is.
@Triangle: Aah, if only! But when I started this comic I knew nothing of printing. So a good chunk of the comic is made in a resolution that would just be a blurry mess if it was printed. And I've not been careful to store the original pages in a proper way so much of it have been lost over the years. :c

I might see if I can put together some pdf-files for free download ... but I'm not sure even that would be possible. :/
Well, would you look at that? I'm still alive doing this. Somehow. xD I know I said "hopefully it shouldn't take 2 months for the next update" ... and I really din't plan for this to take this long. But then again, I also didn't plan to fall so deep down in depression once again (though I kinda should have expected it ... late autumn and early winter months are always the worst ... and I'm petty sure I said something along the exact same lines like, last February after a long break with no updates).

Anyway, I'm a bit better now. Don't think I can make any promises at this point BUT I do at least have the next update drawn out so just need to colour it so who knows?

Also: before someone points it out. I realised too late that Koga's team doesn't actually have a Grimer ... It's what I get for not double-checking my notes because I was CONVINCED this was his line-up. xD It doesn't affect anything that happened in-game and works better with how the fight is gonna be portrayed anyway.

And again: Thanks a lot for your patience and support! It's very much through that I get strength to keep this comic going still!
Just a heads up that the next update will probably take a while. Had a longer than expected visit by a friend and going away again for a few weeks. :/
So, finally an update! Took much longer than I planned but ... oh well. We've had longer droughts. x) Anyway. Puck evolved while fighting some random Rockets' pretty early in the Silph. Co building. Not quite as dramatic as this. Not sure when the next update will be. Hopefully not 2 months though.
Yes I am alive
Welp, it's been a month and I should try to keep you guys somewhat updated at least. Was away for a bit longer than I anticipated and then other things happened. But I've started to work on the next update now - so in two weeks it should be done. Maybe even before that if I try hard enough. x)
And here we go again. Not much to say. Was terrified for Kato when that self-destruct happened, but it wasn't even a close call. Can't say when the next update will be though since I'm going to visit a friend for a while.
@Moonbeast32: I said this was going to be the last arc, not chapter. x)
@derpo: The battle against Koga had things worth telling so I decided to mix him into the Saffron arc. And no, the way my script is now I'll need at least 2 more chapters (so this one + another) to wrap things up.
Aaah, so 4 weeks have passed. My plan was to rest for 2 and then get back to work properly for the next 2 ... But I had a long visit from my mother and after that, went to see my father and so my working schedule was thrown off completely. Really should have taken that into account, but alas. So this cover is all I have to offer for now. Good news is I at least managed to script out the entire chapter + a bit more so ... there's that.

I'm gonna try to work enough to update (properly) in 2 weeks from now. But as it always is when visiting relatives - unexpected things might pop up. :/
@Guest: Bad choice of paper is what happened. And lack of time and motivation to re-draw it when I realised my first mistake. My priority is to keep my deadlines and get the story going and sometimes that means the art will suffer for it. But I'll make sure to at least have better paper next time.
Welp! This is the end of chapter 13. I'm gonna take a little break before I start the next one. Been working on this almost everyday for the past months, and I feel like I need to slow down just a bit for now (and focus on sorting some stuff out). So say 4 weeks until chapter 14. 8D
Update time! And no other comments this week. More stuff will happen next time.
All right, we're 44 pages into the chapter and things might finally start to happen. Remember when I could cram in 2 entire chapter in the same amount of pages? Good times. x)
Not much to say. Next update will be in two weeks ... hopefully. For the first time in years I don't have any buffer at all. But as long as no shit comes up it should be fine.
@Guest: I have a (sort of) drawing schedule for this comic right now. By following it I will be able to update every 2 weeks (unless it's a really long update).
Update time again. Things may finally start to happen. Soon-ish. xD Next update will be in two weeks.
@Malnox: I know you mean well, so sorry if this comes off as a bit harsh.

I have literally been taking a break from this comic for almost a year (or more?) to work on other things. I am pretty stress free at the moment and feeling quite good. And yes, I need to set deadlines and organise it. If I was only going to work on it when I 'felt like it' the comic would end right here, right now.

Because there always something I'd rather draw than this (for someone who has a 600+ pages comic about pokemon, I really DO NOT enjoy drawing pokemon that much).

A long comic will always feel tedious at times - but the satisfaction of having completed something is what pushes me through to continue. To actually have an end in sight have made it easier for me to sit down and work (I've been working almost every day on it for the past 2 weeks!).

And yes, I will probably type up everything I had planned after the end (maybe with little illustrations too). :)
Update time. IDK what to say this time. Next update will be in 2 weeks.
