🌠 Stardust Road

an Emerald Nuzlocke Comic
Updates Saturdays

  • All Jamie has ever wanted to do is live a life with Pokémon in it, but her family won’t let her. So when the opportunity to take up a research job and explore the region presents itself, she springs at the chance. She may have bitten off more than she can chew.

    Stardust Road is a reboot of my old Nuzlocke comic: Jam Does a Nuzlocke. It follows the events of Pokemon Emerald with new gameplay, and a revised story.
  • Cartoon Violence, Bullying, Fear, Censored Limb Loss, Drowning

First off, can I just say how amazing and impeccable your run layouts are?? Ugh, chef's kiss!!! I'm so jelly!!

The art is gorgeous but honestly, I think that's to be expected of you. You've always had an amazing eye for lighting and shading, so I'm not surprised the first page is just you immediately flexing your prowess on us.

And I found myself trying to press next since I wanted to see more! So I'm excited for moar!

💬 Hello and howdy, everyone! Today officially marks 10 days until the release of Stardust Road. Thank you all for your interest, I just want to shoot back replies and a big wave because I am SO excited right now.

Thank you! And oh god, yeah the improvement over the years has been insane. There is something really joyful about being able to look back at my old artworks nowadays. it's just interesting, to see something I created with so much excitement and joy and then make new art nowadays I feel the same way about but they're so different now. I guess 10 years just does that.​

Ooh this looking super mad official! Can't wait to see what's up with jamie
She is the same old Jamie as before!.. Sort of! I kept a lot of the core characters from my first attempt at this comic, and their stories, but they've just grown with me a lot. Which is to say, like, an onion. Layers and all that.​

Yesss it’s here! I remember doing some beta reading for your first chapter, super intrigued by what I saw 👀 So excited to see your comic get started!
FINGERGUNS. I was so particular about how I portioned out my beta reading to people to make sure nobody got everything because I wanted to make sure everyone who read it would still have something new to read. Thank you so much for that beta reading, too, I do feel like I'm happy with this final product.​

Yeeesss!! I'm so excited!!! God, the way we all pounced over here as soon as we saw it LOL

I love the formatting and playlist and everything, too!! You've worked so hard on this - enjoy the grand opening!! 🥹
Thank you I am SO excited! Literally, every week of this process I was just trying to sit on my hands and tell myself the wait would be WORTH it. And god, does it feel so worth it right now.​

Your art is stunningly gorgeous!! I love how you've set up and formatted your page here thus far. Will be following and keeping an eye on your updates as they come!
Thank you! It's been fun trying to hunt down a style I felt was both reasonable to make a comic with, but also something I felt I could enjoy for a loooooong time to come. I'm glad to have you tagging along for however long I have you.​

First off, can I just say how amazing and impeccable your run layouts are?? Ugh, chef's kiss!!! I'm so jelly!!

Hey, what can I say, I've spent some time with some people with amazing aesthetic sense over the years. And when it comes to lighting, I actually remember I spent so long in the first draft of my script FOCUSED on the lighting, and the story themes it was going to carry, so I'm a little giddy to hear praise about the lighting. Even if it didn't make it quite to the final draft as I originally scripted (when does it ever), it was a huge consideration.​



Overall, thank you all for taking some time to comment and be excited alongside me. No matter what happens at this point, I've got the next year loaded up and ready to post, and I'm gonna enjoy the hell out of it.

See you all in a few days! 👋

UGH THE LIGHTING. AND THE STYLE???? put these in my mouth THESE ARE SO GOOD

So, so excited to see more! The hook from the first few pages is just super interesting, and that Sonic panel is so cute omgg

Also, Beautifly, my beloved~

QOTW: Cliff would definitely get embarassed! He's not usually the type to stare, so if he's staring at you, that means he thought you looked interesting! (Or you know, it's his wife <3)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
IT'S BEEN SUCH A LONG WAIT BUT I KNOW IT'S GOIGN TO BE WORTH IT AND IM AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
S SO so sosososososo hyped for Stardust Road and im lost for words im just so excited! I remember sseeing some of the concepts and sketches for these pages way back when and some of them even finished and the revamps on some of them jsut aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa So cannot wait to see this story hit the road.
It's been a long time coming and just know this is going to be a great one, Aaron!
Funny little things like that happen from time to time when you're a one-man-band. Or whatever the comic equivalent is.
Would that be a one-man-hand? /shot

And Question time!
QOTW #1 🌠
How do your characters feel when they've been caught staring (intentional or otherwise)? Are they the type to get embarrassed, act like nothing happen, or even double down?
Cass would be embarrassed and look away, scratch the back of his neck and probably make an excuse to leave.
Echo would probably act like nothing happened and look away at something in the general vicinity. Maybe even get up and walk near the person to look at something mundane as if that's what he was looking at the entire time. Depends on his level of embarrassment and need for damage control.
Lotus would hundo just keep staring and probably smile or show teeth cause she gets off on making people uncomfy.
Scant probably would look away, hide and apologize jsdhgksjhge

these are gorgeous Bug!! 🥺🥺🥺 im so excited to see where you'll take us !! ((and aaaaa years-long project :hug: great work releasing your child into the wild!!))

((the sonic panel,, im screaming, it s so well done--everything is so well done aaaaaa!!!))

((also those beautifly,, mine blorbos now,, pretty,,))

QOTW!! Twyla is used to people staring--she'd only be uncomfy if the people staring were malicious and actively talking badly abt her; Raymond is hella bashful, but won't turn tail and hide--he's a professional after all; Mochi loves making himself known to people he's equally invested in--but he gets testy when random people stare
