Oh, hey. Nurse Joy. Can’t wait to leave this hairstyle behind. Permanently.
I need to spend effort and get ahead of the game. I am really really glad I had a bunch of speech bubbles to conceal things with in panel 2, because its probably the worst panel I’ve drawn since ALGU 1.01. I wish I wasn’t running so late with it, so I could fix it up.
I really need to change up Joy’s outfit. I thought it was a clever reference, to use a poofy dress thing, but I cannot seem to wrap my mind around it. Jenny I’m mostly okay with, as I have ideas of what is going to happen in the future. Not so with Joy.
I’mma gonna get working on next weeks stuff now. Laters.
That 3rd panel is a thing they do in Dilbert. I’m not as proficient at it as Scott Adams, tho.
I like this tradition of the cast lineup.
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!
I’ve got to play around with odd view like panel 2 so it’s not just the same heads talking back and forth!
Have things been feeling too expositiony? I know this is the beginning of everything and I kind of have to layout some structure for this world. Eventually, my exposition will dry up to small patches of Chapter Specific details instead of the World/Universe Level I’m using now.
It has been a long time since we’ve seen a pokeball effect. I think it was page 18, he said looking it up so it’d be right. That’s like 122 strips! A lot for a core mechanic. But I think everyone having one always out pokemon is very thematic and how I would run a pokemon RPG. So there.
So I decided to try something a little different in the third panel. What do you think of that?
Srsly, I’d love some feedback. Does that ruin things? Does it make you rethink the previous page? What?
