Another update!

Raikou is annoyed. Is it obvious? xD

I don't know who's worse to draw. Raikou or Ho-oh. Okay, possibly ho-oh cause of the shiny shading and feathers... and the head crest thing. THAT IS ANNOYING TO DRAW. ANNOYING.

Anyway- enjoy the page with lazy backgrounds!

@Nekomata-chan: Ah, but it came out very dignified while also beautiful, which I've always felt are both integral to Ho-oh's design and very nature.

Mmm I can see why Ho-oh is quite fustrating to draw, still though never the less it's still a lovely drawing of the rainbow birdy.

And that sinister shadow art of Giratina.. man that's creepy xD

@Lady Darkrina: especially since it's his origin forme

I would assume feathers would be harder to draw than any other fur/skin type.

@littlekirby61524: Mmm, you know I've always loved the origin form of Giratina ^^

Nekomata-chan, Jan 31 2014 10:33 am     Reply

@wugfish: Yay! I'm glad Ho-oh came out that way. I've always pictured Ho-oh as an elegant Pokemon despite some of the goofy poses you see. xD

@Lady Darkina: It wasn't nearly as frustrating as drawing dialga- or giratina properly. Drawing Giratina like that was an excuse to not really draw giratina. -shot-

@littlykirby61524: Origin form is epic!

@Luigi_96: Feathers aren't THAT bad... it's the wing itself that's hard. xD

@Lady Darkrina: Origin form Gira is epic. I love Giratina, so it should be expected to see him in the comic eventually. Any Pokemon I love is likely to appear in the comic.

If Giratina has turned against you in the past...it likely wouldn't hurt to investigate that possibility first. And maybe somehow seal Giratina away for a while to see if it makes the deaths mystically stop.

come on guys Giratina attacking you guys
that's inconceivable
.also i like how all the writers worry about how their work looks aaaaaand it comes out flawless

I really like Ho-Oh's design in this. :D
It COULD be Giratina... :/

It could be Ho-oh. Just saying.

Now looking at panel 3 I notice that IS Giratina in his Origin Forme. (yes it's spelled that way, for Giratina that is).

Ho-Oh looks so pretty here! Those wings! And I dunno Raikou, I wouldn't be worried. Ho-Oh can resurrect people... or the legendaries reincarnate eventually.

Giratina...I hope it isn't him, only because it's fairly obvious. Would be interesting if he's being scammed into it, though.

Nekomata-chan, Feb 06 2014 07:10 pm     Reply

@MoogleSam: I'm sure they're investigating- but Raikou doesn't need convincing that it's him. The other legendary Pokemon, however, don't want to accuse him then be wrong about it.

@T-H-E GUY: Yeah. GIRATINA IS TOO EPIC TO BE EVIL... despite having been evil in the past. =< -hugs Gira- I STILL LOVE YOU.

And it's a writer/artist thing. =< We're always hyperparanoid that our work is horrible.

@hellfire14: That seems to be the consensus- I'm glad people like I draw her- my style of drawing doesn't always agree with Pokemon (Raikou, I'm looking at you!)

@demondragon12: It could be. =P Who knows?

@littlekirby61524: Yup!

@Grassy: Glad you like Ho-oh! ^_^ And Ho-oh CAN resurrect Pokemon, but I'd assume it'd take an immense amount of energy and such- so it's probably not something she can do often.

As for other legendaries- the minor legendaries reincarnate over time- for example a new Entei is born when a new volcano is created... but major legendary Pokemon cannot.

And yeah- Giratina would be the obvious choice. Even the evidence so far suggests he's behind this... you'll hear more about that in the next page. =P

Ho-Oh may be annoying to draw, but you make those feathers look beautiful!

Nekomata-chan, Feb 07 2014 02:50 am     Reply

@HKim: Ho-oh is indeed annoying to draw. ^_^ And thank you very much! One of these days I'll end up having to draw ho-oh flying or something. I haven't planned it yet- but I just know it'll happen. When it does- I am going to have LOTS of fun (and pain) trying to draw those wings. xD

I hope it's not giratina I love giratina. Though it would be awesome if darkrai showed up just cause I love darkrai=D

Nekomata-chan, Apr 07 2014 12:18 pm     Reply

@1800hellmo: I love Giratina as well. You won't get a Pokemon story from me without Giratina being in there in some form. =P

I do dread the day I have to draw him though.

So the Legendaries aren't immortal?

As someone who had loads of problems with wings/feathers when trying to draw I have to applaud your Ho-oh. Pretty bird! :D

...I think it's a bit too early to reveal the main villain when they're being portrayed mysteriously. I sense a twist coming. I'm gonna put a bet on Lugia, Yveltal, innocent looking legendaries, and Echo. I really like both Lugia and Yveltal, but even though I don't really have to explain Yveltal, listen to Lugia's theme compared to Ho-Oh's theme... It's so... Angry.
