Alterity Part 44 by Mewitti Alterity Part 44 by Mewitti

People tend to trust one another as a rule; it's shocking how much you can get away with by taking advantage of good will. Also you would not believe how satisfying it was to draw Dante with an actual TRIUMPHANT expression instead of 'woobie'.

You can also read this comic on on the Alterity Tumblr or the Alterity Nuzlocke Forums thread.

Current team:
Robin the human
Talon the Combusken 
Dante the Dustox 
Trumpet the Whismur

Thank you for this comic! Your characters and the world you're building seem so real and alive. Your story is hilarious at times and deep and emotional at other times. I really enjoy that balance! The way you redesign Pokémon in a more realistic way while still staying close to the original design amazes me.
This was the first Nuzlocke comic I've ever read and now I'm totally obsessed with reading good Nuzlockes! :D
But your comic remains one of the very best Pokémon fan comics I've discovered. Keep up the great work!

Goodness, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so happy you enjoy the story and the designs. It's great to hear that Alterity could help introduce you to the wonderful, terrible world of Nuzlockes! :)

I will definitely try to keep up the good work!

"Welcome to the Dewford gym kid... we're a lot better at martial arts than we are at paperwork."

What a charming end to this gym! Particularly liked how begrudgingly Talon accepted the win. I'm very much looking forward to where this story will lead... Every action has a ripple effect.

Nice update, yesterday Chiakiro, today you, we got content. I think your lines in this update are more clean and crispy than the previous? are you testing new lines?

I accidentally deleted my entire brush collection so I've been doing some serious rebuilding and tinkering - I thought this was the same brush as usual but maybe it is actually different. Either way, I like it, glad you find this update's lines more clean.

Haha, I thought that you changed it because, since months have passed, you developed and it's very beatiful to see artist's development, but I see it wasn't that :P. The differece is that ( if you take a look in your previous chapter) in this chapter you did the lines with big decisive strokes, while in the previous chapter is like you drew with a 0.5 mechanical pencil but you draw the lines like you draw very small hair lines and drawing above the same spot again and again. I don't know if you understand me.

Ohhh I see what you're meaning! Yeah, I have a big problem with doing wishy-washy "hair lines" (that is a good way to describe them) and have been practicing trying to make my lines more bold and less scratchy. So maybe it's a little bit of both.

Your Dewford looks so much better than the actual Dewford in the games. I understand why it was that way but it always bugged me how the town faced away from the beach.

I'm glad you think so. Though now this has me intrigued wondering if someone out there has a fan theory for why every single doorway in the Pokemon world faces south...

They all just want a better chance to be graced by the presence of Nosepass' north facing nose when they step outside.

I just love how well you capture the expressions of your characters! Dante's "SEE!!" is my absolute favourite!
Your art style is just so pleasant to look at!

It's really nice to see Robin showing so much appreciation of Dante and Dante actually getting a chance to shine. I hope that things continue that way.

And the scene with Robin lying through their teeth all "I don't know what happened???" is pretty amusing even though the poor receptionist is getting undeserved flack for it.

(It's easy for Brawly to say that fighting to K.O. is the only fair standard when he's not the one getting knocked around. The fact that his gym Pokémon read as fairly young only makes it worse.)

Robin seems more like a chaotic good character. Her heart is in the right place, but her methods can be a little questionable XD

Robin is always terrible but also perfect and the best. Poor kiddo- I can only imagine how terrifying and awkward it would be to be a young 10-year-old away from home, about to face someone as strong as a gym trainer in battle, and have to face this kind of mix-up. And... and Robin is just... Robin. Robin, no.

Nice work on this page, especially with Dante's little hint of confidence, and Talon wisely keeping his mouth shut when she's so proud. And I love the way you do backgrounds, making them add so much to the scene without being overwhelming or looking cluttered. And I love how many feelings can be conveyed with those simple, tiny expressions you do, ahh~!
