What's this?

Did I say something about no comic update this week? Hmm... somethings definitely off...

Did I lie to you guys?

Yes. I did. I'm so sorry for that. But you'll forgive me, right?

Especially when I say we're going to have extra updates this week? How does seven sound? Yes- seven sounds good. One a day for the next 7 days. This is the REAL "Thanks for 150+ Fans" gift! That's fun, right?

For you guys. It's terrible for me. Imagine- SEVEN comics put together in one week. Yeah. I'm not done with them. So here's hoping I survive. D=

To increase my chances of survival, I called for backup. Please welcome the comic's new Co-author- SNOWY~! She'll be helping with the coloring and backgrounds- see that lovely distortion world coloring? That's her work. (I edited it a bit- most some hue-saturation levels and a few added effects). Looks neat though, doesn't it?


Do it.

If you haven't done so, I encourage you to do so. I WILL send Giratina after you if you don't. DO IT.

So what does having a new co-author mean for the comic? Well, for one- it'll be less stressful for me to work every week. Two- the increased likelihood of rushed backgrounds (we know I'm not good at those). No- it doesn't mean extra updates every week- but hey- who knows!

She'll be helping whenever possible- so on weeks she's busy, it won't effect the update schedule- so no worries on that. It'll be a bit of a transition to go through as this first page taught me that we have FAR different ways of doing things. I'm sure we'll work out the kinks as we go!

And guys- again... THANKS SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING. All those comments on the doodle page yesterday meant so much. I never expected to get a response from that little doodle and note- you guys really ARE awesome. <3


At the bottom of every page, I'll list what each of us did on the page (give credit where it is due, yeS?)

Neko: Script, Speech Bubbles, Sketch, Lines, Raikou Colors (Last panel only + 2nd panel bg), Sparks, Cleaning, Finishing Touches

Snowy: Coloring (All but last panel and 3rd panel bg), shading (all but last panel).

Oooh Raikou's getting angry... o.o

Well never the less, you needn't stress yourself, and of course dear.. I forgive you ^^ *gives a virtual pony huggle*

I have to say that work of hers is truly beautiful, though I have to say your work's equally as awesome as always^_^ and as they say 'two heads are far better than one alone~' Soo, I hope you enjoy your break for the while Neko because you deserve it *points a hoof at you* ^^

@Lady Darkrina: xD Oh, there's plenty of stress. I WISH these seven comic pages were the only concern of mine at the moment.

Snowy is a talented artist. It's going to be a bit rough for a bit as we adjust to how the other does things. Her background and painting skills are wonderful- I have no doubt that together the comic will have a lot of improvement. ^_^

And what break? We've only finished one page. =< I haven't even lined the last... four pages? xD OHGAWD.HAAALP.

(about Lvl. 41)

That aside, I think that all of it is great! (the art)
I'm not the best at drawing things but I can draw really good things if I put my mind to it and take the time to correct things.

@Nekomata-chan: Heh heh, well I may not be a very talented artist buut, I hope if I can help you out, I'll try my best ^^ *hugs again*

@Nekomata-chan: I love Snowy's art. But I don't want to bow down to Snowy. And I don't want Giratina after me.

I also love the last panel. :)

@littlekirby61524: WELL... I think Shaymin is alive. For now.

@littlekirby61524: Um.... Hehe... whoops. -runs- Glad you like the art! ^_^

@kirby444: Giratina will come after you if you don't bow down. SO BOW DOWN TO THE EPICNESS THAT IS SNOWY.

@T-H-E GUY: I'm pretty sure Palkia is okay... I mean, I'm pretty sure space would have begun distorting my now if something had happened. =P

i want to say to Raikou..
well you know what ? Arceus can create new ones ! so please ? can you just be calm ?

Nekomata-chan, Feb 08 2014 08:35 pm     Reply

@aymerick: Ohdear. Please don't say that to his face. That'll only make him more furious. xD It's like saying "Here's a new brother to replace the one that died."

You simply CAN'T replace them. You can make new ones- but they won't be the same. Though- I don't think major legendary Pokemon can be recreated- if they can, it'd take a while- AFTER chaos breaks lose- and it'd tire Arceus out, I guess. That wouldn't be good if you know you're being targeted by someone.

@Nekomata-chan: on the first of your replies you put accidently put my username instead of Janobii, just thought I should let you know.

@Nekomata-chan: Fine. *Bows down to Snowy*

And I think Smack Jeeves have Malware because when I look up Smack Jeeves on Google and click a link to Smack Jeeves Google says " Malware warning." Go look Smack Jeeves up to see it.

Nekomata-chan, Feb 08 2014 08:53 pm     Reply

@kirby444: There you go! Now I don't have to send an angry Giratina to eliminate you. =D

Anyway- as for the virus thing, I don't think it's Smackjeeves itself- but the ADS. Advertisements on any site can be malicious- I think the ads that are video/flash that play automatically are the ones that usually have malware and such- and I've seen more of those here on SJ lately, so that's probably it.

If for whatever reason you get malware, just give me a heads up- I'm pretty good at removing that kind of stuff, so I can help ya out. xD

@Nekomata-chan: Ok. Thank you. :)

And don't eliminate me.

Oh, hi Snowy :3 This is going to be a great team ^^

Aw, Raikou, people do change. You're going to feel awful if it turns out Giratina was killed and that is what has caused everything. Tsk tsk.

Nekomata-chan, Feb 09 2014 08:52 pm     Reply

@Grassy: Well, missing Giratina is definitely nothing to laugh at. Who knows. Maybe he IS dead. =D

1800hellmo, Apr 05 2014 11:18 pm     Reply

It's totally not giratina, and I'm not just saying this because I love giratina but because yeah so he missing so what maybe he when're shipping or was killed or is just gone and its way to obvious if you ask me it iss probably echo who some really powerful or cunning pokemon (or human that would be interesting though unlikely) that is doing it and is just framing giratina ( and enjoy you better not kill off zapdos or darkrai or I will send giratina after you, you have been warned)

In the last parentheses I meant to say Neko not enjoy it was stupid auto correct

@Guest: I will kill 3.14 cause I can. =D

@1800hellmo: You'll just have to wait and see. Giratina will show up eventually. =D

As for Zapdos and Darkrai- there are no (current) plans to kill them off. Yet.
