Alma is still holding Kim's hand cause she was still ranting about the Scrappe ability to her lol

"sad human with her garbage aura" hey now, just because it's accurate doesn't mean you can just go and say it like that >:O​
Marge Simpson Voice: It's true but he shouldn't say it!
Clover: "pics or it didnt happen"​
If clover had a nickel for every time a ghost type tried to tell her there was someone dying nearby...
Jabbers, hmm? I suspect that either this Gastly or perhaps a friend will be the one that Silver adds to his team. Also, I didn't expect this one to be so sassy. Sucky garbage aura, lol.​
They trick you with that cute face then hit you with the rudeness lol​

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.

Fun Fact: Did you know you could breed for a chikorita with echoed voice in gen 6? Kim sure didn't!

Kim being left alone? What, like she doesn't have Clover, Chickpea, and the Bellsprout with her? (I am so so sorry about forgetting your name, you dear sweet plant Pokemon...)

Finally caught up again! I have to say that was the best version of Joey I've seen so far in any Nuzlocke. And interesting to see a Nuzlocke where the protagonist has someone traveling along with them.

Clover was a brilliant addition to the gang (and I had no idea Miltank has Scarppy).

Poor Chickpea! Mama would be back soon enough.

afhdjkhfs It's okay we haven't really talked much about poor bellsprout. (one day my child's day will come!) And she just means with human company. Though I do wonder who set up a rule that she's 'not supposed to be left alone' 🤔

Thank you so much! I won't lie, I love how my Joey came out. He grew his own personality as I drew him and I'm honestly sad that his scene has passed. But one day, maybe we'll see him again.

Same! I never knew miltank could get scrappy but once I saw that they could I HAD to let Clover have it.

Chickpea is still dealing with her brother being stolen by Silver, so she's a lil extra nervous ;;w;;

Someone else feels your pain, Chickpea. 😔

God I love that scene so much. But now I wanna play Sunshine again...

IT'S A JIGGLYPUFF SEEN FROM ABOVE!

But in seriousness, Geodude is not who I expected. Is that a puddle of water surrounding it, or foam or snow or something like that? I can see how a Geodude would get pretty messed up that way.

Congrats on finishing Chapter 2! Waiting until mid-February for more will be tough, but I absolutely understand the value of breaks on long-term creative projects. It's only been six months since I updated my fanfic Good luck and see you in the new year!

Hey, just caught up with the latest page. Been meaning to check this out for a while now. That poor geodude...although I must say, I like your portrayal of damage on the geodude showing bits of shrapnel from a cracked upper crust, and a lighter layer underneath. This isn't your standard fare organic pokemon, so blood/bruising isn't appropriate, but you've still captured the critical nature of the situation. Is it morbid for me to appeciate that? lol

Also I love Clover. :D No nonsense for her, no thank you.

boat_ride_step_by_step_by_step_2021_secret_santa_by_acottontail_dewuv3q-pre.png

I wanted to draw your characters doing something interesting, so eventually I decided on a boat ride by the swamp. Alma is calming down Chickpea telling her that she's there. Kim is amazed by all the sights. Venus enjoys the chill ride, though she wishes Kim wouldn't be so loud. And Clover is mad because she got stuck with all the legwork of rowing the boat. Cyndi is a fire type, so I assume he wouldn't like water. He's waiting for everyone nearby. I saw on his ref sheet that he liked biting things he isn't allowed to. While Alma isn't paying attention it's the perfect time to bite down on a cattail. I was inspired by the meme.

You did such a good job at setting up the beginning of Step by Step by Step. I love how Chickpea tagging along with Alma and the conflict between Kim and Alma's conflicting time goals.

Heyo~! A quick interlude page that sets up something for chapter 3~! Surely this won't cause any major issues, right? We'll be back with weekly updates of chapter 3 proper in March!

Also wanted to toss this up while I'm here-

Thanks to all y'all's support, I got nominated for 2 categories in the ganza! I want to thank everyone so much for reading my work, and thinking highly enough of it to nominate it! I was blown away that I got any nominations, let alone enough to make it into voting in 2 categories! Thank you all for your support: it means the world to me that y'all enjoy this lil comic of mine so much. Regardless of how I place, I've won already thanks to all of you~! 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

A jigglypuff would have been another shocking reveal XD

It's a puddle of water around it! Sadly the poor thing is too weak to get out of that puddle now :')

Thank you~! My break helped a lot, even though I had some personal stuff that made it a bit hard to work on my comic ;;n;; But now I'm back and I'm so excited to be working and releasing pages of my comic again! Thank you for the good wishes, and right back at you for your fanfic!

Oh dear, poor thing...

Congrajlutions on finishing this chapter, and enjoy the break!
;;w;; Yeah....

Thank you! The break was helpful but I'm glad to be back~!

Thank you for checking out this lil comic of mine!

Ahhhhh thank you! I really struggled with a way to show geodude having heavy damage when it's... a rock lol. I sketched out a few ways to show it hurt, but everything felt like too much or too little- so I'm happy what I went with seems like a good balance of critical but not making anyone think it's already a lost cause. (And if nothing else I appreciate you appreciating it ajhfdkjsahfsadkjh)

Also heck yes to Clover appreciation! That girl has no time for anyone's nonsense and she will let you know it!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Yo I ADORE this pic! Yhe fact that you went thru the trouble of including everyone- and the way you thought it out andstuck to everyone's personalities is just so wonderfull! I love the detail of having Cyndi stay off the boat cause he wouldn't want to be near the water- and he's even biting things he shouldn't be afhdsajkhfdsjkhfdsakjhf!!! And I love Kim's starry eyes and Clover's pout so much! And Alma trying to calm a nervous chickpea is so perfect! I just love everything about this pic! Thank you so much for it again!!! 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

NEW SBSBS CHAPTER HYPE
This design of Falkner is so good, I am almost offended that ponytail hairstyle isn't canon. Would love to hold his hand. And 👀 at that commotion, given that Falkner is explicitly shown being told about it, does that mean he'll be playing a larger role in what unfolds?? Super excited to see what happens!
