Welcome to Pokemon R

Izzy and Ricky are about to embark on a great pokemon journey. They'll tackle obstacles, battle trainers, and meet plenty of pokemon. Though, they're just forgetting a few important details... Izzy and Ricky are Team Rocket grunts. These two also just so happen to be the children to the most notorious criminal head the pokemon world has ever seen. But most of all, these two are grounded. Thrown out of their home, they are forced to survive without their Team Rocket luxuries for the next two weeks, alone. How much trouble can two grunts get into in just two weeks? Well, with these two... plenty.

Heh...

Hey, remember me? Remember when I said that I would actually update this comic? Well... I unfortunately lied... I horribly terribly lied.

If you hadn't checked out my deviantart page you all probably didn't know of my major lack of art of any kind. Seriously, I haven't been really able to draw anything for basically ever since I stopped updating the comic. It's been a kind of dark mid summer of soul searching till I finally found my light at the end of the tunnel at the end of July.

After lots of prayer and soul seeking, I'm actually moving out of the state in less than two weeks. I'll be going to school for a year, do some more praying, and of course getting a job that I want to do.

I think the bad thing why I stopped updating back then is because story telling has always been my speciality. I seriously have the entire story of Pokemon R in my head and in scattered notes and know how everything is going to go, but I couldn't get myself to draw it. Insecurity may have been a problem, but just no faith in myself was also a big reason too. I don't know much about how to make a graphic novel look good. But I do know how to make a great story board and written work. These were my strengths in college and what I hope to do in whatever job I take in the future.

The good news is that the next page has been written out and hopefully I'll have some time once I leave my current job this week to finish this page. However, updates after that will be unknown. Since moving and living (basically) on my own for the first time (long story do not ask) I will be dedicating most of my time to schooling and work. But I do plan to come back! I told myself I wanted to finish this comic, even if I have to change up the art format I will.

Actually, I'll ask you who still stuck around. I can always write a story vs drawing if you're just interested in what happens next. I can write much quicker than drawing so this could be an option (it takes around 6-8 hours to create a single page vs maybe an hour or two to write a good chapter). Personally I don't desire to do this, but I don't mind. Otherwise, would you rather see a comic page of Pokmon R or a video of a bunch of story boards instead. A video would mean the art is a bit more sloppy, but will get done quicker and may be an opportunity to have voice acting for characters if I decide to do that direction.

For now I'll try to finish the one page and finally prep to move. I'm sorry again for the long delay, I hope to get back to it soon but with everything that's going on, it may be a little bit.

Sorry all

Sorry all for no update this saturday. I was planning to (I actually have the next two pages drawn out ready to be finished) but I decided last minute to invite an old friend over for the weekend. Sooo if I'm lucky, I'll get something out tonight. Tomorrow by latest :)

So sorry!

End of contest

Thank you all who submitted their character!

I've got 8 submissions in total, which is a perfect amount to review over and decide off of. I hope to get the first page of the chapter out this weekend. I may focus every week to get one page out every Wednesday and every Saturday, but, like I said, depending if I have a life or not this may change. Though I'm telling myself to stick at two comics a week.

It will take me a day to really read through and really think on which of the eight will be best for the main position (and side ones as well). I will make a sheet with the winners on it, so look out for that!

How the story is forming in my mind is that this new character (along with the other one I have planned) will not show up until chapter two. I'll keep the chapters fairly short, so you may see them in the next few weeks.

Again, thank you all so much and if you have any questions please feel free to ask! I may just open up this contest again in the future because of the wonderful turnout :)

Thanks!

Pokemon Character Contest

I will state all of the rules and benefits in order to submit a character to the contest below!

But first a disclaimer or two for all who are interested:

    1) Weather submitting a character via character sheet or written, I will not accept anything that is stolen art. So this means NO role-play characters (unless said rp character has original artwork done by you). These need to be original characters, weather from your own original comic or story. I guess it is fine to submit anything from a trainer creator (example) that was where Izzy's origins came from. The difference is I developed the character into my own after a while. I search the internet a lot for pictures for fun, so if I find that your image was not originally yours it will be automatically withdrawn from the comic.

    2) By submitting your character to this contest/recruit, you are allowing me, the artist and writer, to put the character in any way into the storyline. I will do my best to keep personalities, costumes, and character look to the original, but for story purposes I will have the freedom to put them however I please. You're basically leasing the character to me to draw. All credit will go to you, of course, but please don't ask me when I'm going to put your character in or things why your character isn't doing this or that. For the contest though, I will make sure to make a wonderful effort to contact you and ask for your opinion on things.

Alright good? Good!
I just felt I had to say those things before I continue onto the fun stuff!

For submitting a character remember that this story is coming from an angle of other trainers. Not your typical "Pokemon trainer" you get to play at the beginning of the game. Do feel free to submit a trainer like that, but since the main characters are from Team Rocket, they will end up be rivals if picked for anything. A non-start of the game-pokemon trainer may have a better chance of being picked for the slot on the main character board than a regular one, but hey, if the story blows me away for a pokemon trainer, you'll never know!

Contest:
    1st Place: If your character is picked, your character will be a main character and travel with Ricky, Izzy, and their friend which I have planned. As an added plus, if you like drawing, I will allow you to draw a side adventure story for the comic. If you like writing, I will allow you to write a side adventure story. If you like both? Well, we'll cross that road when we come to it ;) You may just be able to do both!

    2nd Place: If your character is picked, your character will have something to do with the team. Weather a battle, showing them to their destination, or they need to rescue you. This is a guaranteed conversation role than a glorified cameo. As an added bonus, you can have the option to draw a page of the comic.

    3rd Place: If your character is picked, your character will have a "glorified cameo" spot. Weather running for their lives from a rogue pokemon and having a panel of them shouting something silly, or being pushed into the water by accident by Izzy, it'll be a bit longer than a single panel.

    For everyone else? Thank you for submitting your character! You'll have a simple cameo shot and bragging rights that your character made it into an amateur's comic.


Things that may get your character picked:
    1) I just want a good character with a cool/interesting/fleshed out backstory. So it doesn't matter about artistic ability, or story telling ability, if your character is good, it will be picked.

    2) A non-regular-pokemon trainer. I stated this above, but don't let that stop you!

    3) Um... idk, just be cool about it!


Submitting:
    Please either write out or give a character sheet.

    Character's name
    Character's Picture
    Pokemon on hand (I would say please no more than 3 but you do whatever :D )
    Character's personality
    Character's bio
    Interesting fact (Are you always poor? Live in a tree? children of a notorious villain? No wait... that's Izzy and Ricky)


I'll keep the contest open till Friday and I ask you to please send me a message with your submission in it here on smackjeeves. You may ask any questions in the comments here.

I do hope you join me and enjoy this strange comic Pokemon R. I shall now take a break and work on Cherry's Magical Adventure along with sketching out the next few pages of Pokemon R.

Have a good day!

Hello!

Hello all, I'm having a little trouble trying to figure out which panel I should stick with for page 3. I want to get the prologue all done by tonight, so that I can finally introduce Izzy and Ricky.

Two pages left!

Though if anyone could tell me which bottom panel they like, I can get back to work! Link to picture

THANKS!
