Pokemon Emerald Nuzlocke challenge
Started back in 2010, this is my biggest and most ambitious project to date.
I learned about the Nuzlocke challenge via purplekeckleon's Nuzlocke comic and as I loved the games I was intrigued by the different view the challenge brought to the games.
I picked one of my all time favourite games, Pokemon Emerald, and completed the challenge. It was my first Nuzlocke challenge ever and since then I've done several runs.
This is the only one with a comic so far. I started it early in 2011 and started posting it online in February 2011. In this run I didn't finish the game first before starting drawing the comic, but I started the comic when I was in Slateport in-game. I finished the game when the comic process was around Dewford and the game has been complete ever since.
The reason why I started drawing this comic was simply to do something fun. I wanted to illustrate a Pokemon adventure so I could relate to it even more. I was also terrible at drawing people and I had never done any comics so I figured this project would help me improve - and it has helped me more than I imagined.
I chose to do the comic in pencil because I was heavily inspired by a Finnish (comic) artist LEPPU and her work. Pencil has proved to be very simple yet surprisingly versatile medium. I draw the comic on A4 sketchbook, using only a mechanical pencil, ruler and eraser, and I scan the pages and merge them together in Photoshop.
I started doing this comic purely for myself and I am still doing it for me only, but I am really happy by the number of fans it has gained along the years.
Even if the updates have been a little scarce as of late I am very keen on finishing this comic and telling this story from start to end. It has been very enjoyable so far and it's only going to get better.
I hope you enjoy reading the comic!
