Literature
Species, magic and other VDBiF guides
While I am writing the VDBiF 'series bible' I really should be referring more to the many things I have already written. The many, many, many, many things... so I thought I'd group them altogether for my convenience.  I'll probably not re-read them while I write it unless I get stuck, but I'll have a handy dandy collection for when I at the 'need to reread this' stage.
I need to update some of the info, and I have new guides for giants, dwarves and ogres. 
If anyone can see anything that is lacking, like a major fairytale species I have ignored or something, suggest it in the comments and I will get on that~
So without further ado:

Sou uma criatura estranha com ideias esquisitas.
-------------------
I'm a weird girl with awkward ideas.
Interests
So. It's been a month or so since my last serious post.

I've put some status updates explaining, it's nothing serious. I simply got incredibly busy in December, which came with a surge of inspiration for written stories, rather than comics. Before I could get out of this, mum got us a cute little puppy. She's called Pipoca (means Popcorn), and she's smart, brave and energetic. I already love her to bits, but she does take a lot of my time and energy from us, with her constant pleas for playing and the need to make sure she is doing her business in the right place (she learned pretty fast, but sometimes she tries to catch our attention).

I finally regained part of the energy lost in the last month, and with my parents home, Popcorn also goes after them, making things a little easier on me.

In the mean time, I've advanced in some of my stories and I finally decided how exactly I'll wrap Promise up. I'm ready to finish this story.

About that. People in my streamings already know that, but since most of you don't know yet... The Promise is the last B&V comic (or, at least, the last regular one - I might draw a few scribbly ones in the future, and some more if I print a book with the strips). I need to move on, and my next artistic step is educational comics for my doctorate. I really want to give my all to them, and I prefer to wrap B&V properly rather than leave it dangling in a perpetual hiatus. Plus, everything else I have to say about the boys is too big for comics, it asks more for writing. As soon as I finish the comics, I'm planning to release some very short scenes, forming a patchwork of scenes that I have to exorcise out of me. Then, if I still have the energy, I'll come back to the booklets, but I make no promises on dates.

Of course I'll keep posting things on DA, but it'll probably be writing more than comics. I'm seriously planning on translate The Conservatory into English and publish the chapters here regularly. It won't be easy, but it'll keep my account moving, at least. I'll probably post silly random comics, too. We'll see.

And that's it. Are you ready for the beginning of the end? I am! I'll release the next Promise page today or tomorrow. Stay tuned. Love you all!

EDIT: I've been playing Pokémon Go for one month. I've walked 133 km, 164 pokémon caught and 242 seen. I already have some favourites like Vupix, Ninetales, Eevee and Espeon. All in all, this little game has been making me happy. :D

The promise - page 9
There, I did it. Just a couple of pages left.

This is how the story is supposed to end since Year 1. I did an epilogue so you wouldn't hate me too much.

Prism Redwood
I'm finishing a couple of old drawings to post here before I finish the next Promise page. Most of them are pokémon-related.


This one is a character reference for Prism Redwood. It's no secret that I downloaded Pokémon Go at the beginning of the holidays, and that got me remembering an old-ish pokémon fanfic I had.  I mean, the first fanfic I ever wrote was about Pokémon, but Prism isn't in it. I might talk about this fanfic some day, it was awesome in its awfulness. xD I recently decided to finish my Pokémon Insurgence (awesome fangame) playthrough, which also put Pokémon all over my head.

Prism is from a fanfic in which I tried to write a more 'realistic' Pokémon world. In her reality, people can only get away from home in a journey when they are 16, but most parents don't allow their children to travel before they are above 18. Also, if you want to own any pokémon more powerful than a Rattata or a Skitty, you need a permission (which is only granted after you are 16 for most pokémon, or after you have a set number of gym bagdes for the most dangerous ones). Badges work a little like getting your driving license, they are a way to test a trainer to see if they can handle more powerful pokémon.

And, more important of it all, since big pokémon require epic amounts of food, or very specific environments to live, raising pokémon is very, very expensive. It means that the average person will have one or two pokémon top, with trainers having tree or four. Only breeders or very rich people can have full six pokémon teams or - shudder - inactive pokémon. In this world, you can use the PC to store pokémon, but it's considered cruel, and it can affect their health if they are 'boxed' or even confined on their pokéballs for too long.

Prism comes from Spectrum Village, a small rural village that is actually part of Pallet Town. Her mother is an herbalist who can make medicine for pokémon, but struggles because, while her products are very cheap and well made, people just prefer to buy industrialized potions on the markets. Her family is not starving, of course, but Prism clearly doesn't have the money to go to university, like she wants.

She could become a trainer to raise money, but she loathes professional pokémon battles. This is because it was the ultimate cause of her father's death. He was a promising hardworking trainer who wanted to be a League Champion, but since he didn't had the money to keep six fully grown competitive pokémon, he only got out of Victory Road once in his lifetime. That landed him a stable job in a gym, but he wanted the renown of a championship and was always bitter that money and not talent was the thing holding him back. At the end, he left his daughter and his wife, picked all the money he could carry without literally getting them into the streets and went to Mount Silver to catch poweful pokémon and try the League once more. His body was found there, apparently having died of exposure. His pokémon were donated and his family went to live in the countryside, too poor to afford anything else.

I think that that summarizes what I meant by her world being a "more realistic" pokémon world.

Of course, despite that bleak backstory, Prism is a happy girl with tall dreams of being a Pokémon professor. Her story is actually a prequel of the Red/Blue games, in which she is tasked with testing a prototype pokédex for Professor Oak. She isn't required to catch the pokémon, since she isn't a trainer, just recording data and sending it back. At some point, she meets an old internet friend, Grey, who wants to start a TV show in which they go after paranormal phenomena to determine if it's a pokémon or a true ghost. She joins him, as it doesn't disturbs her research job, and she journeys all of Kanto trying to build enough of a resumé to have her higher education.

She starts with two pokémon: a female Skitty that she took in and raised, called Rainbow, and a male Eevee that she helped to bring to life and end up earning because they had such a bond, called Sunshine. They end up evolving to Delcatty and Espeon during her journey.

I started this idea for a fanfic in a moment that I got tired of only having stories about pokémon trainers in the games. There are so many other journeys and other stories that one could live in the pokémon world! I've never actually written anything, I've just planned what adventures she should have in the place of the gyms. I do like to revisit this from time to time.

Right, I've talked enough. Back to comic-ing.

The promise - page 8
Sorry, guys, for taking so long. It took me my whole life to figure out how to draw convincing trees. In the end, I discovered a tree brush set for GIMP in my external HD. I don't know who did those (a google search didn't help me), but I know they are free to use because I only download free brushes. I used the brushes to create the tree sillouettes, then I more or less traced over them. I guess it looks good enough.

Memory Lane Cemetery is based on a real one here in Brazil (called something like Hope Woods). If there is a real Memory Lane Cemetery, it's not that one.

If everything goes as planned, there are 5 pages left, then we have a small epilogue (2-3 pages). Next page should be up soon. After all those trees, it was a breeze to draw.
