This is the conversation that takes place during page 13
So there might be something of a difference with this page from the ones proceeding it, and that's mostly because I drew it more recently than the rest of the comic. I felt the need to add a scene here to help the overall flow of the comic, its themes and to add a little intrigue to Kai as not much is dropped early on outside the pretty easy to spot facts such as: Hey, this guy is part of Team Skull :P
Looking back on the older pages of the comic, while there is a desire for me to redo them? I rather spend my time improving and making strides on current ones as I'm always experimenting with techniques to improve my backgrounds and overall page composition as I don't want just an interesting story but visuals that can help carry that out as well.
Also! I now have a Patreon for Undertow if anyone is interested in supporting the comic financially, this will allow for some advance viewings months in advance to my weekly uploads, but no worries if its not something you can comfortably do, as the comic will continue releasing a free page once a week, and there are other ways to support me such as commenting, sharing and the like (Which honestly, the good amount of engagement I'm getting on Undertow really FUELS me, NOM NOM NOM, so tasty!)
Obviously Fox is just running on the cat operating system XDAh, the perils of having a pet who hates sleep. And wants you to get up. NOW.
Just put that bad boy as a reference on your resume and you'd be makin' bank money in no time.Hot damn Tapu Koko is the best Defense Attorney that side of Alola. Jail time taken off just b/c of its recommendation hot dang.
RIP, this is my life to a T, NO one seems to want me to sleep around here >:V EVER >8l And now I operate at 6 hours or less of sleep a day. Hooraymorning person meet not-morning person. Antics ensue.
Oh he's still his upbeat self, this is just one aspect of him I thought interesting to explore given in game he didn't really have a reason to be serious around the PC as they always went along with everything he said. However, I found it pretty interesting how dismissive he was of Team Skull in the Tea Garden scene, how he was confident in how quickly he could defeat them and didn't really straighten up until Guzma showed his face. There was some old history there, certainly, so I def think Team Skull is something of a sore spot for the guy.Kukui is usually portrayed as so upbeat and jolly, it's fascinating to see him take this situation far more seriously. Also interesting that Tapu Koko wants Kai to take the trials again! It'll add a lot more meaning and interest as Kai journeys through the trials. It's such a unique set up, and I'm intrigued to see where it goes.
Also, Fox bugging Kai about his posture and waking up is just hilarious. I can tell these two are gonna play off of each other beautifully, and it's good that Kai has someone to keep his sleeping in habits in check.
Ha! Me tbh, I just slouch to the point that my back ends up flat against the couch and my neck is pushed up in a way that'll certainly cause future me some problems XDI'm somehow both fox and kai when it comes to the posture thing. I sit so bad I'm probably giving myself scoliosis but when others sit with poor posture I remind them to straighten their back lol
And that last part is the biggest mood. I no longer have to wake up at 6 in the morning for work so that means its sleeping in until noon!
I used to sleep in until noon a lot some years ago, but I've kind of broken the habit, unless I'm just dead tired, but I still hate getting up anywhere before 8 in the morning. Just ain't human until later in the day I guess.
*Wink wonks intensely* All in the plan >:DOoh loving this so far. Kai seems like a fun protag.
Man, with all those 24 hour shifts? I can't fuckin' blame ya there, I'd be a zombie too.kai u r my spirit animal even tho i am FORCED to rise early i wish not till noon
I love BG stuff, I just hope I can improve to the point that I can include more neat little details like that.the luvdisc are my favorite part of this page
Fuckin' my mood lately about everything. Just me all
No one, nooooo one can tell me Page 13 doesn't have THIS exact energy to it. The sass levels are so high, we're reaching critical mass!
Me: Fuckin' bitch.
Hm, seems the Popplio has gunshot residue on their flipper.... but how could they have pulled the trigger????????"Who shot Ikaika?"
Even if it were the dead of winter, Kukui would still stan being shirtless as fuck, frozen man pecs and all.Well, you heard Tapu Koko, Kukui: You need to start wearing a shirt.
I really like how you can consistently see people in the crowds wishing for koko to strike Kai down, and the tapu goes and gives him a friendship bracelet instead. Really I love this whole character dynamic Kai has with everyone, all knowing him and him knowing the traditions but still all that friction and conflict borne of a complicated past we haven't even seen yet. Such a good meal you've served here. Delicious. Also 7 is the best time to be awake and the seadog knows it.
Just yes. I'm glad the whole everyone knows everyone sort of feel is coming across here. When I was first working on my Nuzlocke, I def found something lacking when it came to having a protagonist that wasn't from the islands and thought that a different perspective certainly could help point out some of the inherent flaws in Alola's traditions and the like. Soooo, in comes Kai, one trouble making local.
:Vc also can't wait to share some BG stuff, you don't even know how hyped I am about it.
Hope you guys have a good weekend!!!!
