Pokemon: Rising Shadows
Pokemon: Rising Shadows is a Pokemon fan-comic that follows the adventures of an unusual trio who are accidentally dragged into a ancient battle that could upset the balance of the world.
Updates on Fridays and sometimes on Tuesday.
I'm currently taking a very intensive summer course that has me working 8-12 hours a day, 7 days a week. As a result PRS and most art have been on the backburner. I got some work done this week but we'll probably remain on hiatus until mid-August. After that I'll try to kick things back into gear!
Thanks for being patient!

Howdy! To start with, here are this month's raffle winners!
Smackjeeves: Nashew, ArionArts , The JGamer, Plantninja1, TalkingEevee
Prizes this month are the same as usual.
Okay, now for PRS news. There is officially a set date for the start of Chapter 8 now. Updates will resume on November 10th. In the meantime, Patrons of the 5/10+ tier will be getting special sneakpeaks in the form of layouts, WIP, and character concepts. Progress is going steadily on the chapter. I just finished layouts this weekend- next is actually making the final pages! I'll hopefully have a buffer ready by November.
Also, new stickers on Redbubble featuring Chibi Naya and Mega Cero: https://www.redbubble.com/people/Petuniabubbles/shop

As you know, a week ago, PRS turned 4 years old. A while back I announced that I'd like to do a big 'THANK YOU' type thing for the 4th Birthday. Due to life and graduation eating my soul, I wasn't able to get the final list ready for those that were chosen to partake in the group portrait. Before posting the list, I'm going to recap what exactly is happening.
To celebrate 4 years, I'll be doing a group portrait containing the OCs/Pokesonas of 25 readers. Each person who is chosen will have their character in the group picture, get a high-res Desktop wallpaper of their individual character, and if they so choose- will have their character printed on a postcard and mailed to them with my cruddy handwriting on the back!
The selection process went a little differently than I intentionally planned. Priority went to all of the Patrons that had donated anytime in the last year- not just current patrons. So that filled up 11 spots right off the bat (you guys are awesome!). Next in the priority, people who frequented livestreams, the discord server, or just happened to chat with me individually a lot got put in. The remaining spots went to SJ and DA frequent commenters. Yes... I counted the number of times each person commented on a page/piece in the last year. It took a few hours. It was pretty heartwarming going through a lot of the old comments though! We had about 100 people commenting in the last year between DA/SJ and about 600 comments total! Considering I've uploaded about, oh... 40 pages in the last year, that's amazing! THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
So, here's the list of people chosen... Apologies if I don't know your DA account. I'll be posting the list on SJ/Discord as well.
- James the Typhlosion
- Neon Umbreon
That's it! I'd add more if I could, but for reasons, I'm limiting to 25 max. So everyone above may contact me with the following information:
Character they want me to draw: No furries (nothing against furries, just don't want to draw them). Must be SFW. Does not have to be a Pokemon. All drawings will likely be done in a chibi-ish style for the sake of time. 25 is a lot to do!
Mailing Address: OPTIONAL. If you want a postcard mailed to you, then provide this. If not, you will simply get the high-res Desktop wallpaper of your character.
Please send this information to me ASAP so I can get started. The drawings will probably take me several weeks- even months- depending on how busy I get with other things. This is something I hope to completely by the end of the year though. Postcards will not be ordered or sent out until all drawings are ready.
THANKS AGAIN FOR BEING AWESOME, EVERYONE.
Edit: You may send the character references/requests by posting a comment on this journal, through a note on DA, etc. However, please don't post any mailing addresses in a public place! Thanks!

Sorry, don't think I've got time to finish up the next page. I'll post a bonus thing (just some doodles I've done) and Robin will get up a PRSilly page done. It's finals week and I must focus on graduating.
I'll try to make it up with a double update after graduation!

So, after a hellish week, I've got a day to relax. So I figured I'd give my old Wacom Bamboo tablet one last livestream before my new tablet arrives. This tablet has served me for 7 years and has worked on almost every single digital piece I've made. I am saddened that it's dying, but that's just how it goes. Moving on to newer and shinier things, yes? Hopefully, this one can hold out longer than I expect- but since I can't risk waiting for it to die before replacing, the new one will be arriving in 1-2 weeks.
So, tonight I'll be streaming THREE things. I'll be a crazy night.
5 PM central: PRS Ch.7 Cover
~6:00-6:30 PM: Request Stream~!
8:30 PM: Move Night
The PRS Chapter Cover shouldn't take me more than an hour or two tops- so it should leave us plenty of time for requests, food, and movie preparation.
Requests will follow the same general rules. Patron priority. I'll add a less priority to non-patrons who are present for the Cover page stream immediately before it. I may take a 10-15 min break before starting requests.
Requests will go until maybe 8:00. I plan on preparing dinner and all before setting up the movie. The movie tonight will be BFG. I was recommended this movie by my color theory professor- not because she liked it (she didn't, but she didn't like HTTYD either so)- but because she said it was visually gorgeous in color and light. Considering this is a field I'm interested in, I figure it's worth a look if not just for pretty graphics!
SEE YOU THERE!
(I'll post another journal with a link as well as notify regulars and friends via Skype/Discord closer to start time).
On another note, since I've been relatively quiet here on SJ. PRS OFFICIALLY resumes on March 17th. I will be posting the cover for the chapter before that though! I've been hard at work on Chapter seven lately- mostly in the planning stages. As of last night, I've officially begun penciling and hope to do a page a day on pencils. Note: The Cover page is not counted in the below percentages.
Current progress of Chapter Seven:

Okay, I lied. Not -that- important, but I want to make a shout out to a friend and fellow comic artist! Go check out their awesome comic!
