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.
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".
I can just imagine the atmosphere and events well enough to see it happen right before my eyes. The only thing I had a problem with is that you didn't put Vigorath(or whatever its name is.) All in all I love this series, and I believe that your work is improving substantially over time. I expect great things from you good sir, great things.
I only wish it had been a full body of Slaking, but very nicely done. For some reason I couldn't take my eyes away from the detail in the teeth/gums and the way his eyes look. Can't wait for the next page.
Ha ha, very entertaining. Just the head of this insane looking Slaking and your gripping description make the normally uninspiring (to me) big guy into a very scary beast. Like how ya went a very clear gorilla inspired direction. Trying to keep the sloth theme 100% would stretch my belief. I can just picture the group scrambling away, the professor looking back that last glimpse as it settles down. Love it.
I want to push the group to the edge of failure. Where the reader gets the feeling that Humans are exsisting along side the Pokemon. That this world is a hard and difficult place to survive. I think I noted above to with my idea about the design of this page. Minimalistic in a sense. I can't wait to release the next couple of pages.
At this point, I prefer the quality over the quantity anyway. Especially since there are over 600 pokemon that I know of, and probably more since I was told the United States isn't going beyond the Black and White series while Japan continues making more.
