Together again! by tbolt
Together again!

“Sparks! You're alive!” the Riolu perked up at the approach of the bright Pikachu.


“Guys! Oh crap! What happened to you?”


“See, Piotir, Sparks is a good mon, I told you he'd return.” Sasha tried to raise herself on her last leg, but her other limbs were so deflated, all she could do was raise her corner.


“We found a poison trap in the second room. We all got punctured, and you wandered off.”


“Yeah, the boss thought you got shredded by wild Garchomps or something.” Grigor tried to stand, but he was so deflated, he fell on his front and his tail flopped on top of his head.


“Wild Garchomps? There's nothing but Pidgeys and Weedles on this level, what were you...”


“Nevermind that Sparks,” Piotir interrupted. “We need the Pecha berries now!”


The pikachu squeaked as he shifted his feet and rubbed behind his ear. “Oh yeah, about that, you see there are a lot of pidgeys and weedles here...”


Piotir deflated a little more at that news. “Well, what about the heal seeds?”


“Pidgeys and weedles...”


“Please tell me there are at least the oran berries left?”



Took a while to finish this. I decided to get a little less lazy and change my shading technique a little. One character is original shading, the rest I did differently. Can you tell?

Meanwhile by tbolt
Meanwhile
Silence echoed through the cave as the Pikachu sofyly padded into the chamber.  Or was that silence?  The small mon jumped back just in time as a razor sharp scythe sliced through the air where his head had just been!

"Not fast enough, runt!"  Bellowed the huge Garchome, I felt that catch something!

Sparks let out a yeep, his left ear was notched and the chamber quickly deflated with a puff of air.  He immediately made an about face and started sprinting down the passageway he had just left.

"Run, rodent run!  I'ts always more fun when they run!"  The Garchomp laughed and took off in pursuit.



Elsewhere in the cave, a Riolu led a an Eevee and a Totodile.

The totodile leaned towards the Eevee and whispered into her ear.  "Mishka, the biggest thing we've seen in here so far has been a Pidgey.  Why is he muttering something about a Garchomp and Sparks?  Do you think maybe we should have the boss lay off the Chesto berries?"

The Eevee shook her head.  "No, it is just his way of showing that he cares for us.."



I've had this one done for a while, but was just not happy with it.  I really need to learn to draw Pikachu better, even if he is a pooltoy...

Slow Going by tbolt
Slow Going
The pooltoy riolu looked down, stumbling a bit as another jet of air escaped from his damaged paws.  "We've been walking around this dungeon forever, where the heck are the stairs, and where is that bonehead Pikachu, Sparks, with our pecha berries?  I swear, if he's snacking on them, I'll pop him myself!"

The eevee behind him kept a more positive attitude.  "Don't worry, Piotir, I have faith in you, and in Sparks. You are a good leader, and he is a faithful comrade.  You won't let us down.  We have come this far, we can still go a little further."

A totodile brought up the rear of the trio.  "Yeah, boss.  See if I cover my chest like this I can cover all the holes!  Oops, maybe not that one, but if I move my arm there...  Oh, then that starts leaking...  Mishka, your left leg looks pretty bad, you're really starting to limp, maybe you should..."

"Hush, Grigor.  I am fine.  We will get through this with our tails raised high."



One thng I'm glad they fixed in the newest PMD is the AI ability to keep the party together.  Being too lazy to switch tactics to "wait here" every time a mon peeled off from the party for whatever reason, I ended up going through a lot of dungeons one mon down and watching the dot randomly wander everywhere, except for where I was.   Although, I still seem to have an annoying habit of getting poisoned at the beginning of the dungeon, without a single pecha berry to be found wandering the entire level with no luck finding the stairs at all...

Ride the Lapras Liner by tbolt
Ride the Lapras Liner
... Into the ground! =^^;

Poor Lapras seems a little deflated, apparently circling the worlds oceans every day for a month as my crew restocks oran berries and apples can be a little fatiguing...

I should have made my characters a little bigger, but I have no scaling feature to work with in Mypaint. Overall I'm rather happy with the result.

Well, another year is grinding to a close.  There were some good times, as well as a few bad times.  That is life.  We are not built in character by the clean and clear weather of our live, but how we endure when the inevitable problems hit.  I have a fresh wound on the back of my head where they pulled out a lump about the size of a cotton ball.  I'll find out next week what it was.  Judging by the fact they haven't told me anything in the last week, I suspect that it is harmless.

I'm looking forward to having family over for dinner.  We'll have roast beef, ham, and probably my famous Vat-O-Meat for New Year's.  Heh, I honestly don't care what I get for gifts today.  I'm just happy to have family over to share the meal with.

For all that are travelling, I pray that you have a safe and swift journey, and that you may be able to find some small corner of peace, for even a brief while at the end of this year!

God bless!

Back to work now, 10 hour days kicking my tail, but that means four day week! =^^=

The only bad part is my wrist exploded.  This is the worst pain I've ever felt in my life.  Heh, will have an x-ray up soon!

Thanks for the concern, the issue seems to have gone away for now.  But it is something that could crop up again at any time, so it seems... ^^;
