Pokemon: Rising Shadows

Latest Update


After a strange volcanic eruption, Naya finds herself on a deserted island with no memories of her past... and a bunch of other important stuff. She tags along with an odd bunch of Pokemon who offer to help her out. Together they get involved in a plot bigger than any of them could have anticipated.

Except Echo. Echo probably knows exactly what's going on. They could tell Naya, but where'd be the fun in that?

Nightfall Update!

So it's been a while since I talked about my other story that's in the works- Nightfall. Lately I've been making some good progress on planning out the story, characters, and fleshing out the worldbuilding and I think it's a good time to start openly sharing more about it! So starting today I'll be posting concept art and other images relating to the comic on the official comic site (which is a bit of a WIP). Some of the images posted may be stuff I've already uploaded but I'll be sharing more information along with the images. I encourage people to feel free to ask questions relating to the story/world/chars if they want to!

Need Cameos!

Seriously. I just used every single cameo (that fit requirements) from the ch11/12 call in a single panel. All 89 of them. I do plan on re-using many for various crowd shots but just gonna put this link back out there for anyone who may still want to add some.

Hiatus End!

Just dropping by to confirm that Chapter 12 will indeed begin next Friday, the 25th. Y'all will get the cover for Christmas and the first page for New Years. They just happen to be on Fridays this year! We will be on a Friday-only upload schedule unless I can get significant buffer done to allow the 1st/3rd Tuesday updates to go in without risking missing updates.

Also a teeny tiny minor site update: The "Chapter 12 Progress" text above the progress bar now links to the spreadsheet tracker that the bar pulls data from. This way y'all can look to see the specifics of how far along the chapter is as the Overall completeion % can be a bit misleading/confusing. For example right now it's around 34% or something even though I have 20% of the pages completed. That's because it counts each individual step of the production process and some of those steps- like layouts and scripting- I do for the entire chapter before proceeding to sketching/lettering. So now you can see the overall progress of each individual step for a more detailed progress report. It'll show how many pages and panels are done for each step.

So before anyone asks me about the status of the next page- please refer to that!
