Julie Mourns for Ivory

by Mr.Munchlax

Julie Mourns for Ivory-final.jpg
Mr.Munchlax This weekend, I started my first Nuzlocke challenge on my Black 2 game, and I already lost my first pokémon in a matter of seconds, so I wanted to create a little piece to honor it.

Just like with my character Dale Hudson, I created a new protagonist for my Nuzlocke challenge, this time a spoiled brat & shopaholic girl named Julie who is forced to go on a journey to learn how to be more independent and confident. Though she'd rather stay home and max out her credit cards, she starts to grow attached to her pokémon and is struck with tremendous guilt and grief that she let her Patrat, Ivory (all of her pokémon are named after gemstones), get killed in its first ever battle. This scene shows Julie mourning over Ivory's death as she made a small grave with an ivory gem placed underneath while her Tepig (Rubeus) stands by her side to comfort her.

The way I did this piece was by first drawing the scene on a piece of hot press paper and then painting the background and Ivory's grave in watercolor. Then, after scanning it onto my computer, I redrew Julie and Rubeus on Photshop to give it a similar feeling to traditional cell animation. This is a mixed media style I've wanted to do for a while and I want to try and make this into a series along with my Nega-Mega evolutions

    I remember when Copper died. He risked himself for Lily, Moss and the others. He was saved by Mathew, Moss and Coal, but then Coal died and Copper felt guilt that he could have prevented it. So he risked himself for Moss, Lily, and the others. RIP Copper the Krookodile.

    First of all Nuzlocke is basically pokemon found in areas that they are not found in. I really don't like to waste my time. I can complete Pokemon Y in a week.

    And this, right here, is why I've never done a Nuzlocke Challenge ;____;

    I love the style you chose, the watercolour background is really well done and beautiful, especially the sky. The use of both modern and traditional media makes for a really nice contrast.
