Okay, I should explain. This page I worked on for like... ever. And I liked it, but when I scanned it in, because of some stupid mistake I made early in my working process (too long to explain) it made a very bad scan. And I was rather dissapointed. So whilst fiddling about trying to find some photoshop wizardry to fix it I inadvertently ended up... colouring it. Still not sure if its any better, so if you wanna see the plain pencil version it's right here -

Lawl. One good thing about colouring pencil shading is it makes it look like you've attacked the page with pencil crayons.

I was aware that this wasn't the most exciting of pages, so I decided to dedicate it to backgrounds. I kinda felt that all the ones I'd used so far had been somewhat bland and lacking something (and this may be the last interior I get to do for quite a while) so I wanted to make the room... Convincing.

So very busy lately. See you guys soon.

Lookit me, here starting all early with the replies. It's better doing it in bits so I'm not just sat for one long half hour or so lol.

Christen Banks: Aw yes XD I'm glad you were drawn to the backgrounds because they're something that the eye tends to naturally wander over. We're drawn to speech bubbles, after all. Hah... I don't reckon I'll be doing coloured every week I'm fraid. Just... Don't have the time.

Congratz on your first postmanship, here's a badge. Or perhaps a poster would be more fitting.

Antilocapridae: Thanks XD I... like backgrounds. They take more work but they're a lot less stress than drawing characters.

Kitten meat: Well as I said, I wanted this page to be a background page. Make sure the scene is firmly set. And it was also a little challenge to myself.

The Being: Succinct but efficient. Cheers ^^

Kitten Meat the second: They're all roughly the same age at fourteen. I know Atty might look older, but he just has... A long face and a scowl. It's his design. Also, fourteen is a funny age when kids tend to all be at different stages of puberty.

ZachLight: Gah the Light from DeathNote... That's the second time I've heard a similarity. Admittedly Death Note had a huge influence on my manga style, but hopefully I can make him look more different because big similarities, do not want. Fortunately his personality should shine through as completely different. (I hate Light btw lol)

Thelonelyhobo173: That poster is a testament to my love of lame gags.

Chaosmark: I think the case is more that he's a bit dizzy what with being flung up into the air on the last page, along with the bulbasoid and rattata...

BlueLink: Yeahh I think it's cuz he's so tiny, and the fact that he's sat on a bed doesn't help. Glad the colour works.

Kitten meat the third: Hah, sorry to dissapoint your good eye but I completely pulled the design of that computer out of my ass. Along with the majority of the things on this page. As for the jumper as you picked up on, it'll be clear next page. By the way, you are allowed to save up your comments into one big one you know.

Metalicar67: I'm so glad you're enjoying it XD And good luck with your bulbasoid. They can be beastly.

Amante-kun: The credit for the designing of Mana goes to Krazeh, as it's her character XD She actually drew the design I'm using for her here about a year ago and said she wanted to give her a new look, hence the jumper you can just see her pulling on...

BlackCatz: BlackCatz-chaaaaan not at all XD I'm happy to do the work and happy you like it. I MIGHT make the next page purely ink actually... Due to time constraints, and just for a change. I'll see when I get to it.

TheWhiteWabbit92: ... Lolling. I feel honoured that you should share such a gem of information with me XD

ApaFox: XD That really makes my day as when I was working on it... I kinda hated it y'know lol. But I feel better now, cheers so much!

Sweetherring: I know I do.

Katyuki: I mostly put in that poster to amuse myself, I really didn't think it would have such an impact on everyone else too lol.

DragonHat: I'm so happy XD~ ... Gawd, now I gotta live up to this don't I. But raising my standard is a GOOD THING, I'm sure.

Fgamer: Cheers dude!

KittyCHOMP: Oh good XD Thanks for the reassurance. Aye there's a lot of random crap in this page, I'd be suprised if everything was seen XD Did you also see bulbasaur on the third panel?

*Suki*: I'm glad =D Because... I don't draw girls as often as guys, so I was worried I'd get her wrong.

catcatdragoo: Why thankyou =3 <3

Gizuminipichu: Haha the colour really was a last minute addition this time round I'm glad I went through with it. And... I'll admit to used to having owned a pikachu doll.

pwnlil: I haven't forgotten so soon, naturally, the Rattata has flown somewhere that wasn't covered in these shots.

Tayday: Oh my D= I'm... really flattered. I don't know what to say, I hardly consider myself rolemodel worthy. But thankyou, thankyou so much regardless. Really.

SuperBiasedMan: Lol well originally I was just trying to fiddle with the brightness and contrast to make it work. Then I thought I wonder what it would look like if the pencil was a different colour... then went onto, I wonder what it would look like if all the pencil was coloured appropriately... Aw heck, I'll just colour the damned thing.

Amante-kun: Digital. As I said, I hadn't actually been intending on it being a colour page so I just edited the pencil shading I'd already done. It gives a rather convincing pencil crayon effect I feel.

LuluMoon: Well if it's any consolation I absolutely suck at chemistry so I'll leave that to you. But while I doubt I'll ever be good at chemistry I'm sure you can get as good at drawing as you like if you just keep trying at it XD

Venion: Aw shucks now you're just being too kind XD

Emruki: Lol XD Yeah, that bit always was ommited from the games...

LastLostBoy: Ahhh I must admit that's one of the things I just couldn't bother with... Possibly out of indignation that my mum was spending MY money. Cheers.

Korrected: The neatness and precision D= Y'know afore I start any page I always swear SWEAR to myself that THIS time I will use a ruler. I don't know why I bother anymore because I never do and just dive in making a mess of everything XD But I'm glad it's worked out.

Crimson_Fire: Phew! I did not fail at drawing a cute girl for a change.

Mr Aids: Hah XD And what makes it better is that from the looks of things she's getting changed in front of him...

x_Peanut_x: Yeah there has to be some money making oppurtunity in this for me somewhere. That poster was thrown in on such a whim...

lil_shiro: Thanks =3 Man I am SO relived I got her right ;w; When it's someone else's character you sure don't want to screw up.

Fishuu: Lol aye. It didn't take him long to forget who Kahn was. I don't think he's been paying that much attention the whole time through.

Ichipowa: Cept for I think it's tiny. I can fill it full of crap but dimensions is something I struggle a bit with lol.

Yoowl: Thankyou for sparing it, there are a couple of pages afore this that I wouldn't mind you eating. And hah XD ... I would hardly call myself a God when it comes to shading and colouring. I'm just... persistent. But thankyou nonetheless.

JeMiChi: Cool XD Hah I could never do that, I'm terrible (TERRIBLE) at actually making anything. Guess drawing them will have to suffice for me.

Dragon Sphere: Yeah I ain't the biggest fan of pokecomics either, despite there being so, so very many of them. Glad you gave me a shot!

Fmaster: Thanks =3 I love details XD ... Colouring not so much, but what can ya do.

Russia: Lol it was a last minute addition. I think it works though.

Cultra: Cheers =D Hope you enjoy the rest!

Idene: Kinda XD Hey, he can't be expected to remember every single person he only just met that morning. Though no, it is not a Charlie brown shirt. It will be made clear next page.

Nintendosavi: Thankyou =D Real happy to hear you like it.

Dynamic: Okay... Regrettably... And after much deliberation... I really can't pretend to know what you're talking about.

Thanks for commenting guys!

Before I even read your commentary I was eyeing the background. I want a Do you dig it? diglett poster.

Also, I like Atticus' really delayed reaction. And Kahn's little sister's hair. It's ALIVE.

One final thing I actually physically said wow when I saw you had colored it. Very good job with that. Is it all colored from now on?

Edit: First post. I GOT FIRST POST. I have never done this before. :O

July 13th, 2009, 1:06 pm

July 13th, 2009, 2:26 pm
The Diglet made me giggle
Partly because me and my friends have a joke about Diglet being a poo.
(Dugtrio is a Three-flush-mega-shit, FYI)

July 13th, 2009, 2:27 pm

July 13th, 2009, 3:20 pm
Your detail is AMAZING. I am in love with the background and every detail.

I love this page. Absolutely LOVE it.
July 13th, 2009, 3:45 pm
This page is awesome!
July 13th, 2009, 4:00 pm
Why yes, I CAN dig it. (In fact, I'm really digging these colors. Groovy.)

Dragon Thing looks really cute in the last panel. I didn't notice him at first. :D

And don't worry, it's really not that similar to Back to the Future. Like, at all. It's just the whole 'waking up to find someone staring intently at you." :D
July 13th, 2009, 4:31 pm
She's soooo adorable! ;u;
July 13th, 2009, 5:01 pm
D:< <3333 OH MY /GOD/ YOUR ART IS SO AMAZING. D:< <333333333
July 13th, 2009, 5:07 pm
Wow! Your page looks awesome when its colored! I didn't recognize that girl, so it's Kahn's sister. Love the Pikachu doll. XD
July 13th, 2009, 5:29 pm
awwww snap the color is awesome oh btw in the page before this one not only was bulbasaur, dragon thing, and Kahn’s sister in his face while he was sleep but there was a rattata as well so either you accidentally forgot about it or it flew some where were I can't see it
July 13th, 2009, 6:05 pm
YOU'RE SOOO AMAAAAZING~~~ I absolutely adore your comics! Your art is absolutely stunning, the panel layouts are absolutely fantastic, and ugh, you're like, greatness personified.

I've been following your stuff for awhile, but I'm not sure if I commented much. But even so!

I want to let you know.
You. Are. My. Rolemodel.
And my goal is to be as good of an artist as you are when I'm nineteen~!!! -twinkly eyes- |DDD
July 13th, 2009, 6:27 pm
You inadvertently coloured the page?
Damn, you just doubled up your cool points.
July 13th, 2009, 7:58 pm
question though, did you color this with colored pencil or digitally? IT looks like colored pencil but i cant entirely be sure *is a noob*
July 13th, 2009, 8:01 pm
I don't see any mistake.. I think it's fantastic! You know, I tried to draw characters last night... it was fail. I think i'll stick to chemistry and just be a spectator of art
July 13th, 2009, 10:08 pm
I must say, your ability is surpassing the impossible. Did you pierce the heavens with your drill?
July 13th, 2009, 11:04 pm
Heckyeah! Colored AND backgrounds. 8D Doesn't get much better than that.

This page brings back Pokemon nostalgia. The dolls, the rugs, thesleepinginyourrival'sbedLOL. <3

I love Atty's expressions.
July 13th, 2009, 11:28 pm
I love love love that you added the dolls and rugs! I always loved collecting those and decorating the rooms in the games.
July 14th, 2009, 12:07 am
What a delightful page! I am greatly enjoying the thorough coloring. I like how she completely ignores Atticus' "I don't live with you" to continue to use the "our" pronoun lol
I feel like Atticus is going to do some hardcore creepin' "at Kahn's place"...!

The neatness and precision of your art is fabuloussss!
July 14th, 2009, 1:06 am
She's pretty. :o
Mr Aids
July 14th, 2009, 1:07 am
It's the first time Atticus has woken up delirious in a girl's bedroom?

Aw, he's growing up. How adorable =D
July 14th, 2009, 6:03 am

I totally want that poster <3
July 14th, 2009, 5:18 pm
kahn's sis is cute :) nice art
July 14th, 2009, 5:54 pm

I love all the cute little details in her room (and she is also adorable *g*) Hey Atty, little slow on the uptake, eh?
July 14th, 2009, 8:46 pm
:D lol looove the room !!!! :D!! i want a room like that x3
July 15th, 2009, 4:59 am
Oh my god ;w; . This is so beautiful ! I would've ate it, 'cuz such pages are so yummy.. Mmh... But I don't feel like it, since it's sooo amazing *w* You're like a god at shading AND coloring. How often does god's get TWO abilities? XD

Oh, and, did you know? I love Atticus, he's so much fun :D

You draw everything so nicely, I like the details and coloring here, will watch!
July 18th, 2009, 9:41 am

July 20th, 2009, 12:52 pm

Unrealism A guy alone in a cute girls room. The cute girl is his greatest rival's sister. This isn't a doujin.

WITH THOSE THREE FACTS COMBINED...I can't help but feel a little disappointed.

So hilarious. I spat my drink while reading this.

Hm it is certainly good. He wasn't super quick at the uptake but he is marvelous.
June 26th, 2011, 4:52 pm
Our! Oh my, she's looks so sweet. And Atty automatically questions the 'our'. Aww, Bulbasaur is struggling to jump up on the bed. Atticus is surprisingly slow on the uptake. Dragonthing looks absolutely petrified at his spontaneous jumping. I love Atty, he has some moments of grumpy inactivity, and then he suddenly becomes a raging ball of irritation.
Don't worry, this page is amazing. I love the colors, and Mana looks very nice. I love the background, especially the small itty bitty details that make me go 'Awww'. Wonderful!
December 7th, 2011, 9:10 pm
A colored page!!!!!!!!! I feel loved XDDDDDD
