If this page looks different, it's because I tried out inking this (and the next page) digitally. Been trying out new techniques to speed up my inking process lately while trying not to lose quality. I know it looks rougher than usual here, but that might just be the case for a while as I try get things right. Attempting to improve tends to have it's bumps along the way. I'll probably go back to traditional though. I generally always do.

Not saying anything here or there about Atty's morality, but I think if I'd planned a big ol' heist and it actually worked out successfully, morals be damned I'd be pretty pleased with myself.

Ah'll sithee later.

Well while I'm happy Dragonthing will be back I'm sad that in the ensuing chaos George will be blamed for this thievery.

Atticus, the most competent Rocket Grunt ever.

Always good to hone your skills, and if there is an easier way to do something that won't hinder the quality or can be honed in time to match or improve it, then it's always worth trying out. An artists mind can flow like water through pipes. the less kinks there are the more you get out.

@H0lyhandgrenade: Let's be honest here, at least 1/2 of that success was due to George's 'trust' in Arty, and 1/4 of it was the Chairman's inability to roll more than a 3 in Detect Motives.

I can practically hear the dramatic, villainous soundtrack that is inevitably playing over a fourth-wall-breaking speaker somewhere off-panel.

He's definitely not regretting it.

Wow. This page looks very different! It's not a bad style though.

First, loved the new page, second, Atty pulling off this heist and his reasons (saving DT being a big one) made me think about how you write well written "villains". I watched this video ages ago about how the villains in the "anime" Rwby sucked and this is like a prime example of doing it right.

@SOABS: Of course! It's H0ly! This entire comic is obviously the coming-of-age story of a villain! Obviously.

@Evilbob_dA: Well part of me is still hoping Atty gets out of Team Rocket eventually. After all isn't he still getting gym badges?

If you going to try a new techniques then now is a good time to be honest. As an artist you can always pull something out of your ass like "the style change is to reflect how Atty is going to the dark side" or something. So don't worry too much about it. =P

Honestly, go for see where it goes. It doesn't look bad, and so it's really up to your discretion.

I think it's because while they only showed them on the surface level which makes them pretty one dimensional. In here we get to see Atty's ups and downs, and how he keeps seeming to screw himself over on a journey he never wanted. A better comparison would be Light Yagami, aka Kira.

Art process What is your art process? I'm an artist that can't do crap digitally, so how do you (or how have you) done the Mokepon pages?

@hardehar: There was a explanation to this awhile back in the comic as this has been asked before. H0ly draws and inks traditionally, scans and then cleans and darkens up the inks in photoshop. I assume this is a penciled panel that was scanned and then 'inked' in photoshop directly.
Doing work digitally is different for everyone, but like any process, takes practice to get the hang of it. ^.^

@hardehar: Sorry for such a delayed response. 'Fraid to say there's really no trick to it though xD When I worked digitally here I literally just went and roughed it out and then drew on top of it tidier, all with the basic brush. Wish I could help more.

For a single moment, despite the heinousness of his crime, despite betraying the one person who trusted him and despite the fact that he is working for an evil group, for a moment, just one moment Atty could smile

And know that he did his job well

I wonder if he'll interact with a "NPC" that ask about a pokemon in his pokedex but finds out that he doesn't have one... the NPC will glitch out or he'll accuse him of not delivering the parcel?
