Emerald Skies Summary


Emerald Skies: A Nuzlocke Comic

Elon is sent to Hoenn and reluctantly starts on a journey through the region with the leftover Mudkip in Birch's lab. Alongside him and her other Pokemon, she confronts death, love, Gym Leaders, villainous teams, and her own, troubled past.


Coming to a close

This is difficult for me to write. As of the next page of Emerald Skies, the comic will be discontinued. A lot of thought and time as been put into this decision I have come to. I've been struggling to keep my motivation for the project for a while now and after 6 years I have come to the decision to move on to a different project. As much as I would love to give Emerald Skies a proper conclusion, I cannot bring myself to continue the project for another 3+ years with the rate I've been going let alone adding another project on top of that.

I plan on doing summaries that include illustrations of major events and characters that would have made an appearance just so you guys know how the story ends and what happens to everybody. You all deserve that much at the very least.

Thank you so much for your support.

Trying something new

So I’ve decided along with revamping my Patreon, that I’m going to try something new with Emerald Skies.

I’m going to spend the next few weeks/months getting a bunch of pages finished so that come the new year the comic can have some sort of steady update schedule (something I’ve been aiming for for a while and somewhat managed while working part-time). My goal is once a week. I would like to do more, but I don’t want to overwork myself since school will be starting for me within the next few months.

Just a Comet

Felt that this kinda needed its own journal thing.

So because of the eviction on my mom's record, we aren't really able to get an apartment. I'm at my breaking point with the whole situation to where buying and living out of a car ala Mr. Universe style is very inviting. Probably cheaper than an apartment anyway. My family and local friends have proven yet again that I can't really count on them when I'm in a bind.
Anyway, I do have my laptop and I have a few places I can go to get internet, but my laptop can't handle the workload that is Emerald Skies anymore (hence why I got my brother's computer when he went into the Navy). I can still do traditional work and I kept most of my supplies out of storage so I can work on commissions if anybody wants them.

I'll try to keep you guys updated the best I can and such.

Feb 2nd 2016

So here's the game plan for Emerald Skies currently. I'm going to continue scripting and sketching and preparing models in sketchup when I can manage it. Once everything settles down with moving and jobs I'll try to keep a steady update rate.

Until then feel free to check out the Emerald Skies tumblr ( and my deviantart page (

June 27th, 2014
Starting in the second week of July Emerald Skies will be switching over to a bi-weekly update schedule. Which means instead of getting 3 pages a week, there will be 2 pages a week.
While I am not working at the moment, I need to keep in mind that the semester starts up again come August so I need to build up a buffer for when that happens. It will take me a while to get used to the work load and to work in time spent on the comic.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. :)
