You know what this page means? We get to leave this scene. OMG, I think we’re been next to the Yellow building longer than any other sequence ever. I certainly won’t write another super long street side scene like that. (He said, not actually knowing the future.) We first saw the yellow building on strip 20, THIRTY STRIPS AGO! And other than a little bit of Jenny Diversion, we’ve been here for it. And one of Jenny’s pages featured the yellow wall. So yeah, I get to invent new scenery.

Nothing like writing myself an outline for the rest of the chapter. I’m sure it will all happen EXACTLY as Timmy here indicated.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
You know what’s a hard emotion to capture? Conflicted. And regret, with just a hint of desperation.

It’s been 8 pages since this conversation, so let’s sum it up before continuing, hmm?Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
I would love to hear feedback on Panel 3. Did that work the way I wanted? Did I get my point across? In a different style of work, say animation or less static panels, I would have devoted a full scene for it, as I think a physical representation of Timmy’s deception is crucial. But I don’t know how well this played out.
Rachael is a straight forward gal. Lieing to her tends to work. Which saves me another nasty conversation and gets the plot moving again. Huzzah!Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
I reserve the right to change EVERYTHING about the second panel there. Suddenly foreshadowing Lt. Surge is a solid move. Always foreshadow. But to draw up 5 pokemon and decide on his wardrobe? That was foolish of me. I will probably change things for it. That’s a far way away. And I’ve apparently made Surge a policeman?
Look, Lt. Surge has some crazy lore. He’s an American in a world that is not earth. That sounds like it could be an awesome story. More fun than the one I’m telling. Hmm…
Well, I have a while before I get there. Until then, please note that I did not have a filter to draw the lightning bolt. I did that mostly by hand, which is why it looks stupid.

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.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
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…

Hooray for beat panels!!
All this may seem super obvious, but this realization gave me an out from this horrible, horrible conversation. So I’ll take it!Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
Go back to Chapter 1, Page 47, if you don’t remember this context. Panel 1 has a reference to the Pokemon show, if you’re not initiated in it.Check out my Patreon to see these pages a week earlier!
