Jet's Black Nuzlocke
fanart_friday__jbn_by_tailsimp_dexq36y-fullview.jpg

First up is this piece for Jet's Black Nuzlocke by @Zero Not only is this comic a big favorite of mine, Zero herself has also helped me a lot as an artist over the years. From redlining my work, to tips on how to pull off effects, to helping me understand artistic concepts, Zero has helped me with it all and more, and I def would have improved this much without her! So naturally, she's the first one I wanted to do fanart for! Thank you so much for everything Zero~

It is born asleep, and it dies asleep. All its movements are apparently no more than the results of it tossing and turning in its dreams.
OwO first! Thanks so much for the fan art! I love how happy Jet looks, and sir Francis is adorable with those giant eyes~ Love how you drew his tusks and jet's floofy bangs poofing out of her hat! It looks amazing, thanks for the shout out tails!

Across The Divide
fanart_friday__across_the_divide_by_tailsimp_dey3j9o-fullview.jpg

Yall I love this comic so much. Nutmeg and Flash are so good together and I love seeing them interact and grow together and I'm so excited to see them progress on their journey. On top of that, @pkmnMasterWheeler is one of my closest friends being around someone so positive and hardworking on her own multiple comics just makes me want work harder on mine! Thank you so much for sticking by me through so much Lyra- and also thank you for giving me so many good children to draw~!💖

Week 3: Folded
fanart_friday__folded_by_tailsimp_deykhd4-fullview.jpg


For week 3 I knew I had to go with fanart for the run that literally made me want to start a nuzlocke comic in the first place. Folded by @Emilianite has such a unique feel to it- soft and comforting and nostalgic with just the right amount of tension to keep you worried about the characters in true nuzlocke fashion. I adore every single character in this locke, and I adore this comic's interpretation of Silver so much that it's still my favorite to this day. (Also, don't listen to what anyone says, I'M his number 1 fan thank you very much!) This nuzlocke has been completed for awhile now, so you can read it with none of those pesky wait-times- and I honestly cannot recommend it enough.


If you wanna read this run, you can find it here:

Week 4: First Summer
First_Summer_4.png


Back at you with week 4's fanart friday! This week I chose to do a piece based on another nuzlocke that inspired me to want to make my own: First Summer by @Krisantyne ! While Folded helped me realize that I wanted to do a nuzlocke- First Summer really helped me realize the sort of story I wanted to tell and got me excited for it. I adored all the characters so much- and the relationship between Sara and Terry was really engaging to see as they clearly had a previous dynamic that was uprooted by the sudden journey they went on. Seeing them work through their issues- and indeed the entire cast working thru other issues both external and internal- kept me hooked and I binged the entire thing in like a night then reread it a day or so later lol. It got me so excited to tell my own story and have my own characters interact and grow- and without the excitement First Summer instilled in me, I don't think I would have made it past the early pages of SbSbS when it really hit me how much work was going to have to go into the comic. So have this pic in honor of that- and for all of you First Summer fans out there, tell me if you know what scene inspired this picture~

If you'd like to read First Summer (and you should), you can find it here: Link

Week 5: Blooming Glory
fan_art_friday__blooming_glory_by_tailsimp_dezdv75-fullview.jpg


This week I bring you another fav- Blooming Glory by @Spacey

Ahhhh there's so much good stuff to talk about with Blooming Glory that it's hard to know where to start. I simply adore Glory's journey from hesitantly accepting her first pokemon to vowing to become the new champion for the sake of a suffering region. And having Zip also start hesitant to go, and seeing the way her and Zip grow together from that shared fear into the duo they became is just amazing and pulls at my heartstrings every time I read through the comic (which I may have done again, in preparation for this piece afhdakjshj). These two are going to change their region with their own blood, sweat, and tears, and I never get tired of reading their story. All of this packed into a comic with so much art improvement it's staggering to think about! So if you haven't already, be sure to read thru this amazing nuzlocke and cry along with all the rest of us!

You can read Blooming Glory here: Link

Week 6: Road Map Not Included
fan_art_friday__road_map_not_included_by_tailsimp_dezucxm-fullview.jpg


This week I bring you 2 good beans from one of my favorite nuzcomics: Road Map Not Included by @ashdrawsarts

RMNI is such a fun Unova run, with possibly the best bond I've ever seen between the main character, Bianca, and Cheren. Most nuzcomics do nod to the fact that the three are meant to be friends, but this trio really feel like tried-and-true friends who have been together for a long time: between their inside jokes, the way they can predict each other, and even how they fight- it's clear these are 3 besties out to take on the world together. Lately there have been many a sad-times in the comic, and we get to see the way the trio come together seeking support/trying to support one of their own through the tough times and it's wonderful to see even if none of the 3 handle it perfectly. Meanwhile you have a great dynamic with Clover (the starter who didn't really want to go on this journey) who has an attitude that can really push their teammates. But despite starting that way, Clover is learning and growing through these tough times to try to be a better teammate and friend as well as figure out what it is they really want to do, and it's just a really engaging character arc to see. I really love this story, from the characters, to the interactions, to the expressions, and the tone the artist is able to set using grayscale so well- and I really hope that if you haven't already, you'll give it a read too!

(Also I hope the colors here are alright cause there is literally 1 colored picture i could find of these 2 and in it Clover was still a snivey and Finely wasn't even wearing this outfit so I had to guess ajhfdjkshfksjadf)

Week 7: Penumbra
fan_art_friday__penumbra_by_tailsimp_df0a2r5-pre.jpg


This week I bring you the dynamic disaster duo from Penumbra by @TwistedEerie ~!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh god where do I even begin when screaming about Penumbra? The wonderful character designs for the OC's, canon characters, and pokemon that keep them recognizable but also distinct?? The story that's deeply intriguing with it's mysteries, while still engaging and exciting to follow along even when not focusing on that??? The character's who are all complex and engaging while enjoyable and sympathetic even when they're doing everything wrong???? The fantastic way Eerie balances their darker moments and humor so that neither feels out of place, and the switch in tone is always welcome????? The absolutely beautiful ways that Eerie continues to push the art of the comic, (including their wonderful videos of important scenes) which isn't just breathtaking to see, but inspires me and others to work harder on their own artwork??????

Do I just scream in admiration of all of it!?!???!

Wait I like that option the best

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YALL PENUMBRA IS SO FREAKING GOOD IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY READ IT NOW AND EERIE THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS STORY WITH US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Please god if you haven't already please read Penumbra Here: Link

fan_art_friday__finding_balance_by_tailsimp_df0p7th-fullview.jpg


This week I bring you the adorable duo from Finding Balance by @ima

Okay so, Finding Balance is one of the newer nuzlockes around town, and it is absolutely fantastic! The protagonist, Precious, is one of the most engaging and entertaining characters I've had the pleasure of seeing! Between her intriguingly strained relationship with her father, her pride and drive related to her family name, and her hilariously dry delivery, she's an absolute delight of a nuzlocke protagonist to follow along with! On top of that we have Pearl, this comic's version of Barry, who is equally loveable and entertaining to watch as he brings that trademark energy to the story while bouncing wonderfully off of Prescious's dry wit. The two really feel like good friends, and I every time I see them in a scene together I'm smiling before I know it! Add to that 2 of the absolute cutest starter designs in the piplup and chimchar that the pair start with, as well as a growing cast of loveable pokemon, and you have an absolutely wonderful read! I for one can't wait to see what Ima has in store for us with her comic, and if you haven't hopped aboard the adventure, then I hope you will now!

You can (and should) read Finding Balance here: Link

fan_art_friday__undertow_by_tailsimp_df12pm5-fullview.jpg


This week I bring you Kai and Fox from Undertow by @Riboo

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh UNDERTOW TIME!

Okay so Undertow has so much good stuff going for it it's hard to know where to start. First off there's the incredibly interesting premise of having a skull grunt going on the island trial once again, which gives a unique perspective to/more sympathetic portrayal of Team Skull. It's really engaging to see Kai interact with other skull members and see more of how the team interacts- as well as see how the islanders treat Kai due to his affiliation with the gang. Then there's the stellar artwork of the comic! Ri's use of bold colors always catches the eye, and gorgeous scenery shots are always a treat to look at! The fantastic use of expressions always sells the emotions in the scene, and their fun character designs mange to be instantly recognizable while still being incredibly unique! And of course, there's the characters! It's no secret at this point that I love characters that come with a full past to consider in a narrative- it's interesting and engaging to me as a reader to see what the characters have gone through and how they're handling it as well as making them feel more 3-Dimentional. Somehow, Ri has managed to make every character so far feel this way. The way Kai and Fox are shaped by their pasts, and the way it both connects them and makes them conflict with each other makes their relationship super interesting to see develop! But everyone seems to bring their pasts with them to the table, from the way the other grunts interact with Kai or the islanders, to pokemon who have been made aware of what trainers think of them- all the characters feel 3-Dimentional, and that makes the world of the comic feel truly lived in!

Overall Undertow is a treat to read and if you aren't already reading it, you should start reading it here immediately: LINK

week_10_ais_by_tailsimp_df1jisn-fullview.jpg


This week I bring y'all the cute trio of Autumn, Nao, and Orion from Autumn in Sinnoh by @Nessi

Okay so I have a lot to say about AiS, but I feel like you should be able to look at these designs and instantly understand how good these children are. Look at them! Look at how cute Nessi designed them!!! How can you not instantly want to read this comic after seeing them!? But it's not just the designs that make AiS a fantastic run! Another strong element is the fantastic humor- prevalent from the very unique start of the comic! Everything about how poor Autumn ends up isekai'd into the world of pokemon has me laughing every time I reread it- and the more comedic take on the legendries is so fun to see! And as the story goes on, the comedy that comes up naturally between the characters is a joy to watch, and makes the hard-hitting dramatic moments hit that much harder! All of the characters in AiS are a treat- as even the side characters are memorable and charming- and the core trio is such a strong cast of characters! I already want to see all of them succeed even when they clash with each other. It already feels like we've started to see them grow, despite not spending long with them, and I am so incredibly excited to see where this comic takes them!!!

Also, if you're wondering why I drew 3 characters instead of 2- it was recently Nessi's birthday! So if you haven't already, be sure to send them some belated birthday wishes (like me: HAPPY BIRTHDAY NESSI!!!) and also be sure to read Autumn in Sinnoh here: Link

(Also if any of u recognize where i got the inspiration for this pose from, i love you)

fanart_friday__pea_shorts_by_tailsimp_df2e25g-fullview.png


This week I bring you the fantastic family from PEA Shorts by @pkmnMasterWheeler ~!!!

Okay okay okay, I know I've already done fanart for Lyra's fantastic Across the Divide Nuzlocke before, but the anniversary of PEA shorts is coming up and so I just HAD to do some fanart for this great family and gush about it!

Let's get the most obvious out of the way first: THIS FAMILY IS SO CUTE I WOULD DIE FOR THEM! For real it feels like every interaction, even ones where they aren't on the same page, are so wholesome and lovely and I just love reading them so much. The way Pulse and Eve bounce off each other has always been great, but the recent addition of Nido to the romance makes everything even sweeter somehow. (I didn't even know that was possible! Hello? Lyra?? How did you do this???) And of course the way all of them dote over Arcadia as their daughter is so good and so sweet and so good for the soul. Before Arcadia I rarely saw cute and happy Mewtwo content and now I can't get enough of it! Seeing her grow and navigate her position as being in charge is so fun and it's so sweet to see how her moms help her navigate her new responsibilities. Beyond just them however, PEA shorts has an ever expanding cast of characters that are all fun and engaging in their own right! From things like 'grandpa' Arceus to a Celebii that's Eve's dad, to the two lesbians of the moon, every new character shown brings a whole slew of great new interactions! The entire universe of PEA shorts is a great time, and it's tied together perfectly by this sweet, loving, adorable family that PkmnMasterWheeler has created. Ever update brings a smile to my face whether its an ask being answered or a new comic page- and I can't wait to see more of this family going forward!

If you haven't read PEA shorts- WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? Head over there and read it here NOW!!!

fan_art_friday__tala_s_nuzlocke_adventure_by_tailsimp_df39if2-fullview.jpg


This week I bring you the duo of Tala and Miyavi from Tala's Nuzlocke Adventure: The Silver Souls by @TalaSeba

Okay so we're reaching back to a classic Nuzlocke love of mine this week! Tala's Nuzlocke Adventure is one of the earliest nuzlockes I ever started reading and I adored it from the moment it begun. It's one of the longer running ones that somehow managed to make the leap from comedy focused to plot focused- and both sides are a great experience to read. The early on gag-style portion of the comic still leaves me smiling upon read through to this day. It keeps a brisk pace, but still made sure to give us character moments that let us get attached as well as intense battles that can leave you on the edge of your seat. As the story progresses there is even more emphasis on the characters, their interactions, and their personal struggles- and it's so engaging to read. Every character quickly feels fleshed out with their own wants, worries, and past- and watching them deal with those and each other as well as what the world throws at them is fantastic every time. Top this all off with Talaseba's incredible growth as an artist and fantastic skill as a storyteller and you have a story that you'll find yourself reading over and over again. Trust me, I say that from personal experience! There's a reason that after 11 years this nuzlocke is still as popular and beloved as it is!

If you haven't already read it- you fool! Read it here asap! LINK
