Welcome to my thread, Home to my new sprite comic "Secrets of Hoenn" Here you'll follow a young boy known as "white" as he gets thrown into the deep end of his Pokemon journey from the word "go", this comic is about how he survives and how he'll soon learn and grow as he strives to be one of the best while he travels the land.

This comic has been done almost COMPLETELY in MS Paint.
(Everything is done in MS Paint, except the "night time" lighting)


COMIC CHAPTERS

Prologue

Chapter One - Dawn of a new Journey!

Chapter Two - One of "those" days

Chapter Three - The Fear!

Sorry it's shorter than the last, I've been a little slack so I'll make it up when I find an actual font I can use and like so I'm no longer placing letters by hand *phew*

I have updated the thread tonight with Chapter 1, while not overly exciting, I find it rather amusing and theres a tiny joke for the fans of R/S/Emerald.

Anyway, I've made the chapter pages "clickable links for those unfortunate enough to have Dial-up (Like myself)

Enjoy, I'll begin CH2 tomorrow

Oh thanks Toxic, I'll check it out!

The night time effect, was basically grayscale, a darkish blue layer blended and alot of tweaking, worked better than expected.

Good comic! It's always nice to see new comics. A few things you should change though:

-Put periods at the end of your sentences.
-Align your panels, it makes it look better.
-In the last two panels, you kind of skipped. Try putting a "Later" somewhere in the last panel.

yeah I kind of thought that too, with the skipping thing, I accidentally rushed haha, oh well... It's my first sprite comic, still early days... it will get more detailed, however I need to find a balance between too slow or too fast.

Not bad! Who would make their kid ride in the back of a dangerous moving van with all sorts of furniture that could fall and kill him?! I either see a jailed parent or a Final Destination parody on the horizon!!! Still, it's coming along nicely.

Haha yeah, It was to poke fun at the fact a lot of people wondered why Brendon in R/S/E had to ride in the back of the moving van to hoenn and what kind of parent would do make their kid do that...

Unlike Brendon...White realizes the idea seems "wrong" somehow haha.

Yeah I did haha,took a little while to do but it looked pretty good in the end, I basically respited the bed to have no blanket, so it was just a pillow on a bed and nothing else, and then just went from there trying to work out where everything would be on the blanket at that angle...

Also, for those who haven't thought about it yet, white is actually based on my D/P trainer sprite I made on my forum Avatar.


All custom sprites like the longer truck and bed etc, are done by me (only started spriting a couple of weeks ago)

If I end up making a lot of custom stuff for the comic, I could possibly make a sheet for those who might want to use them in their own comics etc.

Thanks a lot for your kind words Acha still being a "n00b" with comics hopefully I can improve it even more over time. I do like to pay attention to details, even as far as adjusting the clock time correctly by day and night, because I find it fun to spot tiny little things I probably didn't see the first time, so I want others to be able to say "Ah I never noticed that before, that's pretty cool"

ComoToon
, I did the night time effect in "Paint.Net" it's a free program you can download (All I can get while I'm on dial-up, untill next week) However
any program like Gimp or Photoshop will do, it's a matter of tweaking after you have the basic steps down.

Thanks a lot, yeah things will start going somewhere now that White is "lost" in Hoenn, Third generation game characters will appear at some points in the comic.

Perhaps even appearances of famous Kanto characters eg, Lance, Red, Green etc.
But we'll see what happens.

Yea I have that program and just learn how to do the effect it didn't turn out as well as yours but still turned out nice. Oh and I'm wondering if you have paint.net then why use MSPaint.

MSpaint is a lot more simple to work with, in other words I can do a lot of things faster in it than the other program, I am slowly coming up with more things that require that program though, like the see through sprites of white running around looking for his "magazines"

Hmm you must have complete mastery over it. I personally prefer paint.net its not as simple but i 'm pretty good with it and its superior in terms of features.
