And with this long panel, the morass of Jenny v. Timmy is resolved. On to a new mess!

This week probably has my favorite of the art across a whole week. I’ve taken to using the lineless style every zoomede out panel and I like it a lot. It’s technically faster for me to do, assuming there aren’t any complicated fiddly bits.

omg, this page took a lot of smithing. But, finally, we’re in a position to transtion to the next vital thing in my outline, which is great, as it means everything moves forward.

There is probably 5 more bullet points to do in chapter 2 here? so another 35 pages maybe? that’s about right.

Unless something else comes up…

Edit: Hey, let’s actually ATTACH a comic to this post, hmm?

So here’s my thought process. I don’t know how well it works, but it might be what I go with. Mostly. Trained Pokemon are, more or less, able to communicate with at least their trainers, maybe with any trainer, maybe with any empathetic person. I can’t think of a situation where someone not being able to understand a Pokemon would be beneficial to the story. I mean, sure, I can see someone who has to learn to trust or whatever having a problem stranded in the forest or something. But until then, Pokemon are going to be able to communicate rather cleanly.

Not wild Pokemon, of course. (which I ought to include in the comic soonish, yeah?) Its the training I guess? I dunno. Some wilds, of course…

Look, Jenny and Growlithe are a good team. They have a good chemistry and can understand each other. That’s why Jenny has just a Growlithe, instead of another partner. Pokemon make good teammates. Yeah.

Not pleased with that Poke-Speak in panel one, but whateves. I like the CCTV effect, but I feel like I should have done something with the other monitors? But I don’t want to establish anything that I have to keep drawing again in future shots. So I just went with that.

Regretting the “grabbing the radio to talk” thing. That’s really limited the poses I can do during this conversation. So the future of the story has been shaped by that annoyance. A little.

Of course, I’ve said that about collared shirts in character design, and, oh hey, look at that, Donovan has a collared shirt. Huh.
