It took 3 hours of Word Bubbling (is that a real phrase?) but here it is. The glasses on Gardevoir's other self come from the original piece of concept art Giga made for the series. If you you want a shorter name than "Gardevoir's alternate self" just call her "Glasses Gardevoir".

Now that we're back tell your friends and spread the word. This arc comes to a conclusion of sorts next week.

Dear God that third panel. Especially Liquidus, looking up pictures and realizing that the gargantuan armor is four small gold patches and general variations of grey, at that was just the beginning, I had three other characters after that, two with semi-complicated designs.
I blame Guy for this.
But that last panel Roll made up for everything.
I was told to make Roll's drink a neon blue, like the stuff they drink in Tron, its a bit hard to tell this zoomed out, but to get the effect so it doesn't just look like water, I kind of added a glow effect around the glass.
I also tried to lighten up on my shading a bit so it wouldn't look so flat, but I think I went a bit too far.
Also I apparently wasn't supposed to color the top thingy in Slowpokes mouth white, only the two teeth.
But whatever.

Here's the full-sized version of panel 3, because it's probably the most awesome thing I've ever drawn.

So yeah. Tried playing around with some "3D" in this one. You guys reckon it turned out okay?

Also, Toothy-Derp Slowpoke is my new favorite Pokemon.

Starting next week, expect a significant improvement in art direction.

I just started reading it.
Good jokes, Hats, a BitF reference, the Komika series font, and videogames? And a subscribe button too?
That's all I... Wait a second...
Green eyes? Why there's always a character with green eyes in the show? That doesn't make any sense!

Well, whatever. I'll subscribe anyway.

Roll's a robot so she's allowed to get away with it.

You got it wrong. Just replace "roll" with "everybody", "robot" with "comic character", and "she" with "they". Now that's better.

Look, I wasn't trying to make less of any character for the fact of green eyes; it's just that in (almost) every comic I read, one of the main characters always has green eyes. Not that it's bad or anything, just kind of weird.
Like when you repeat a word so many times that you start thinking it sounds weird.

Like "The hell my avatar picture blends perfectly with this background?" weird.

"Green eyes are striking and sexy, especially when paired with red hair
Individually, they're the rarest natural eye and hair colors — but are more often seen together in fiction than Real Life
. Such a character is usually female, which is Truth in Television as most people with green eyes in Real Life are women. It also signifies a spitfire or an untrustworthy individual, particularly if he or she is also an Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette.

They can mean a character possesses an innate, natural magic, more witchlike than wizardly. Nature spirits often have green eyes."

Oh! Oh... Shows what I know. Didn't know it was a real eye colour.

Why is it that in Webcomics that involve Videogames, my eyes allways seem to automatically search for MGS Characters?
They were the first people I noticed on this page even though there are way more eyecatching characters on it XDDD

Is Glasses Gardevoir a reference to the beta design you made where she had glasses and a business suit?

Yes, I guess the autor post wasn't too clear on that.

I know I should be commenting more to let you know I'm reading this and make you feel appreciated but it's too funny to stop reading for long.
