Hey, it’s a Natu! Cool! As far as I can tell, Natu aren’t able to open their beaks, but I need it for expression and actions and stuff. Doesn’t make sense, in my mind, but then, i think they’re supposed to be hieroglyphs? Not sure.

Drawing this bird is weird, but I’ll figure it out, don’t worry. It’ll just take me some time.

So, I decided to go from Growlithe saying part of his name to just making a barking type sound. I’m not sure about it and would appreciiate feedback from pokemon peoples. If Growlithe had a name that lent itself to doggie sounds, I may have used it. (like Lillipup) I dunno

Incidentally, one of the cool things about the WordPress stuff is I can tag characters, so you can see when the character has shown up. Granted, that’s not useful if you need to see a specific Rachael strip, but it is kind of nifty. Thought I should throw that out there.

I considered ending the chapter right here. This is not the end of the chapter. I have a bit more I want to do before the slight time jump a new chapter provides. But I could have ended it here. Remember that.

Good comic for a Friday, tho. 😀

I learned a lot about the Rocket Henchman there as I was picking his colors. Not that I had many to choose, but he received a lot of back-end characterization during that step.

Man, I wish I had some program to help with lighting. Also in figuring out how a trenchcoat looks from that angle. I don’t like panel 4 there, but whatever.

‘Redeye’s’ Eye looks less creepy than the last time we saw it. Not sure why. I’ll figure that out when I draw him way too many times in the future, I’m sure.

So, in case you didn’t notice, and in case I haven’t said, MY Team Rocket is actually evil. And rather competent. And scary. Yeah, scary is what I’m looking for…

So the art in this one was rather tricky for reasons. I did not copy and paste in panels 3 or 4. I just drew the same crappy pose almost exactly twice. The first panel gave me the most trouble, though. I originally had Rae’s hair over her eyes, but it would not come out right after an hour of fiddling, so I had her pull the hair away for once and it came together in like 12 seconds. So that’s a thing.

There is a point in any project that has some poorly constructed piece in it, to either stop and take the time to fix it, or to soldier on and accept it. I’ve been very accepting of late. Today’s strip, for example, has two not amazing parts. Some dialogue is less than phenomenal, and the mash up of lineless and lined art in panel four is not doing it for me. I probably could have spent time on fixing them, but I decided that it wasn’t worth my time to do so. So there they are. Enjoy.

And we’re finally leaving the Pokemon Center! Yay!
