Yay, finally! I know I said I'd be able to update faster but apparently not. I had a job that kept me busy for a while and I've also started studying Italian so those two ahve eaten my time quite efficiently. I dare say I can make updates happen faster now, at least they won't take another month.
This part is an obligatory mourning part but it also has a lot of character interactions and also, plot. As you may have noticed, some things have started to clear up, even if just a little. I'll continue explaining a lot of stuff in the next chapter.
I caught a Shuppet at Mt. Pyre and at first I had a lot of difficulties with including it nicely. Then I got the idea of a ghost caretaker, and I must say I kind of like it myself (well, at least it's better than "Hoo, random capture in the graveyard, yay!").
Also, the mysterious mystery Pokemon makes another appearance. Man I loved drawing that Absol, it made this part less painful to draw. <3 Don't ask me how she got on the island, she has her ways.

There are a lot of audios that are related either to this part or to this comic in general.
I found the perfect voice for the Absol: [link] [from 2:58 to 3:11, you can also listen to the whole song since it's awesome. <3]
The song (or rather, the part of a song) Solveig sang is Chasing The Dragon by Epica It's a very beautiful and sad song, definitely one of my personal all time favuroites.
Thorn's and Solveig's duet is Day For Ghosts by Delain. It's one of the few songs that actually fit both Pokemon. You have no idea how difficult it is to find fitting duets for these two. But I think this one was pretty nice.
Also, not related to this part but I found the perfect battle theme for Nessa: [link] I think it fits pretty well.

Also, I don't know if you have noticed but I updated the cover page because miss derpface started bugging me so much. I even made a comparison picture: [link]

That's it for now. I hope I can update soon again!

Hey, when I checked the link to the video for Nessa's battle theme the video had been taken down. do you remember the name of the song cause I am genuinely intrigue to hear it.

I think the song there was:…
I still think it would be fitting but I don't know, I might choose another one today.

Dang, the video link for Nessa's Battle Theme got shut down. Now I'm dying to know what it was.

I think it was this one:…
I might change my mind about it though or at least find different alternatives. I think this one still goes well with general battles. I changed a lot of the character's themes from what I said they were.

:aww: I like the Shuppet. 
I'm liking where this is going. And this chapter was full of wonderful feels, lots of angst, and I have enjoyed every bit of it

I kinda like the character, too. Drawing this made me a bit sad I didn't end up using him.
Thanks! I'm glad you like it!

How did you make it so long? Did you just take different sheets of paper and paste them together?
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah. I draw this comic on A4 sheets, scan them individually and then paste the together with photoshop.
TheScribbler12 Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks. I drew the first four parts of my Nuzlocke comic on Photoshop, but it didn't turn out well. So now I'm trying the draw-it-on-paper method :D

No problem. :> I personally enjoy the the traditional method I use. Digital comics are fun but pencil comics are more like my thing.
