Today is First Summer's 10th anniversary! ✨

I posted the cover and first two pages on March 26, 2012. Back then, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I tend to do well with longterm projects, so making a Nuzlocke comic seemed like a good idea. Well, doing this for 10 years (and only being just past the halfway point after 10 years) probably wasn't part of the projection, but it's okay! I love this comic more every year!
I remember hoping that someday a lot of people would read it, of course, and it's so so incredibly great that this has come true. ✌️😭 Big shoutout to Nuzlockes for getting me back into drawing and storytelling and for having an amazing community that I have met many amazing friends in. Glad to have had all this as part of my life for uhhhh a whole third of my life now! In a very satisfying turn of events for number likers, it was also my 30th birthday this month. 🥳

Made a little art to celebrate. uwu It's a callback to the second cover, except completely orange, to nobody's surprise. (I actually haven't made a completely orange thing in a while, I deserved it! (I can stop anytime!))
Moltres still isn't gonna be important, they're just the Legendary who will make the biggest appearance. But they're very decorative!

So here's to another 10 years! ...Probably not a joke. Things are going well, but the comic just gets more detailed at the same rate that I get better at drawing. Is there a limit? Nobody knows. Can't wait to see what it will look like at the end, it will be just as much of a surprise to me as to you! ∠( ᐛ 」∠)_


I usually don't post extra art here, but I wanted everyone to know about the 10th anniversary, in case there's anyone who only follows me here. ;u;
All the extra art for the comic can be seen at dA!

Oh wow, your art is always super pretty! The orange here is very fitting, too, somehow. Congratulations on 10 years! :O
