A Bemurkled Sapphire Nuzlocke

No capture on Route 112 — at least for now.

It's been so long since I worked on this comic that I'm having to re-learn all the little details that I used to know instinctively - like that Zizzy keeps her normal Poké Balls on her right hip and her Ultra Balls on her left hip, or that the tips of Benjamin's wings are darker than the insides. On the other hand, some things come back instantly, like the basic design of Zizzy's outfit or the shape of Benjamin's wings and arms.

One of my joys working on this comic is trying to recreate things that I see in nature in the real world. A little while ago I was down in a valley and noticed the beautiful way that the tall grasses and short leafy plants came together at the edge of the water. So I tried to draw all the details in the way I remembered it. I have the philosophy that there are no backgrounds: the characters are part of the world, not something apart from it.
