Beautiful. The deatail of the Slaking's face is extrodinary. The story provides an amazing image of what s not drawn. The pokemon is drawn very realistically, and if I had no previouse knowledge of its existance, I would have beleived it to be real. Your ability to write realistic accounts of a proffesor that is studying pokemon is simply stunning, and I am captivated whenever I read these journals. Although the time it takes to produce such breath taking works of art can seem very lengthy, it is definitly worth the wait. Please continue these fantastic works of art, for I am always looking forward to them.

Looks really great! This is one of my favorites in awhile.This is in need of only a little grammatical/spelling revision, from what I can tell. I love the Slaking's face! Just like I imagine that he would look in person! :) The minimalism works well for such a large Pokemon, as I feel that if you drew out the entire thing, it would make the page look cluttery, and it would draw away from the Professor's story. I like the Professor's adventures and can't wait to see what Pokemon he runs into next. You are doing really well so far in creating believeable, realistic Pokemon.

Maybe my question will be answered later, but the sudden transition from angry to calm was the part that really confused me... Was he not angry at all or something? =/

The behavior was a reference to the Pokemons "Slack Off" ability. Where the Pokemon rages and is able to attack, then wastes his energy and has to rest for a round. It's more a ploy on the actual game mechanics.

If taking that ability to the real world, the Slaking rages, finds her baby, then is spent. Thus needing to "slack off".

This one's not tagged with the rest of the Field Guide images! The numbering's off as a result, too, though since the numbering is off, maybe you were already aware?

I'll have to look into that!! I've changed a couple of the images (I have redonesome of the pages) so maybe that's why. Thanks for the heads up!

No problem! Bumbazzle from Rare Candy Treatment just ([link]) linked the series using the Field Guide tag, and I couldn't help but notice the weird gap between the Slakoth and the Limpopo Bay pages.
