So, in my rules of this comic, I have a couple characters that will Not Appear. Ash Ketchum, Jessie, James, Meowth, and a handful of other characters from the Anime. But Its really nice to be able to just borrow a hairstyle that is not really copying, but there’s a bit of tribute there.
I might reference some of those characters, but I do need to make this unique.
You might ask about trainers like Brock and Misty. They’ll be in the comic, but as aloof gym leaders, not traveling companions a la anime.
Sometimes, I do a lot of stupid research for this comic, so I can make a joke that not one of my readers will get, but I persevere because A) doesn’t matter either way to the story, and B) because the one guy who gets it might find it hilarious.
D349 in not a random number, is what i’m trying to say here….
I’m always worried about foreshadowing and stuff. Is this too subtle? Too obvious? Too early to tell? no idea.
Setting up secret codes is kind of fun, as it lets me add easter egg type references. But also hard, as I can tell this exchange doesn’t really make sense. So yeah.
Picking voice colors is an art and I don’t have it figured out yet.
