This is a new thread. The old one kinda died a long slooow death. Still, this (hopefully) will have a better run. This thread is primarily for artwork to do with the Daiche Region, both pictures, and the short comics I shall be drawing to illustrate the Daiche Region Adventures (my story thread). Well, as of the first chapter, we have two main players, and their first Pokemon. Oh, and please, excuse the crappy background. I seriously could not be bothered yesterday at 1 am (my time) to try and put better ones in. Most of you will probably recognize Maiha (my character). Mostly because of her crazy blue hair. And yes, that is her insanely long scarf around her neck. And this is Chiyako (my best friend's character). You may not be able to see Chiyako's hair outline very well (darn late night...well...early morning to be more precise...background choices!), but if you look closely enough, you should be able to see the outline of the green. Maiha actually gets her hair colour from her father (real one), and the un-tamable-ness of it from her mother. Her eye colour is also a gift from her mother. If her hair wasn't in it's ponytails, it would be like a lion's mane. Or a REAL big afro. Her hair is shown here with normal hair-ties, simply because I forgot the Pokeball hair ties, and again, at 1 am in the morning I wasn't about to change it. Next piccy maybe. Maiha's first Pokemon was Aine (pronounced EYE-neigh), the Eevee. She prefers to be outside her Pokeball, and hardly ever goes in there, except to be healed or registered for battles and contests. Eirwyn is Maiha's starter Pokemon, and a Koorihiyoko. He considers himself the leader of the group, even though Aine is technically 'the power behind the throne'. Chiyako actually has her mother (and uncle, Prof. Cypress') eyes, but her hair is a mixture of her father's hair colour (blonde), and her mother's, which was forest green, like Prof. Cypress, and is the reason why her hair is a couple shades lighter than her uncle's. Her first Pokemon was the long-suffering Shri, the Ralts. Shri does know Confusion, a must, mainly because it's her job to keep Chiyako from doing...things... Tzurishadai (or Tzutzu (pronounced Zuzu) as he is more affectionately known as), is Chiyako's starter, and a Koutetsugyo. And yes, he was dropped on his steel head right after Chiyako chose him. (An accident with a Tangela and a Haunter. Don't ask.) And it is the reason why he is slightly insane. (Like the budgie I once had which stupidly flew itself into the ceiling fan. It survived, but was never quite...right...after.) So, for now, Maiha, Chiyako, Aine, Eirwyn, Shri and Zuzu are on Route 01, heading towards Kounen no Machi. One final question, should they already have their Pokedexes or should they have to deliver Prof. Cypress' parcel to him before they get it? I think I'll leave it up to you to decide.
