years, I've had dozens of projects and
Most of them have been worked on
for a while and are still being
Some of these ideas, however, aren't
as lucky and get left behind
on the cutting room floor...
I either didn't like how things were going for them or I got too busy
with some other stuff in my life.
Whatever the case, I decided
to make this page serve as a cemetery
for all of these cancelled ideas.
I hope you find all of this
Alright. Here's one of my
earliest cancelled projects.
Near the time the Pokémon
franchise was celebrating it's 20th
anniversary, I decided to
make a random comic that starred
a few of my favorite Pokémon!
This is the original preview
I was a little rusty at art during the time. But I still managed to
make a few cool things throughout the year. (Like
this artwork of Seadra!)
Now, this comic might look pretty
nice. But this was made in 2016. And
let's just say, I wasn't the most ethical person on the internet back
This comic was traced from an
already pre-existing comic on Pixiv.
This is the traced comic. And THIS is the original version.
If you thought stolen artwork was
bad enough, I also sketched a few pages
for what would've been the first comic in the series.
Besides all of that, I made a few
pieces of colored reference artwork for the characters. (Including a
scrapped Vulpix character who would've been part of the main cast.)
It took a while for me to wisen
up and think that stealing artwork and ideas wasn't the best way to go
in life. And so, Pokémon Lookback was quickly cancelled. (That
and I kind of forgot about it after a while...)
Before I cancelled it, I signed
up for an account on Smackjeeves and published it on there. This is the link for it
If you're surprised by the error
page, that's pretty understandable.
I wasn't aware of it when I was
working on this entry. But Smackjeeves shut down right near the
beginning of this year. Which means that if your comic wasn't a big hit
(Or, you didn't save any of the materials for it), it'd practically be
lost to time.
Just think about that for a
second. There's probably a lot of comics there that can't be viewed
In my case though, I probably
don't have anything to worry about. All I posted there were the initial
There might be a few comments
here and there that might be lost. But I doubt it.
All things considered, I GUESS
this fan comic would evolve into my Pokémon 4Koma series. (It's
got TWO Raichu characters and has completely original art and writing!)
I'd end up creating a new Lucario
character who would have a bit more personality compared to the Lucario
in this series. (I guess the Pokémon Lookback Lucario's
personality evolved into Umbreon's.)
As for the Vulpix, I never really
cared much for her throughout the years since I forgot about
Pokémon Lookback. If I have the time, I'm thinking about making
her into a redesigned adoptable. (Along with a TERRIBLE Eevee I made
around the same time I worked on this comic.)
No, not the Nintendo game.
About 2-3 years ago, I was having
a tough time with my Algebra... The teacher didn't help either as he
never took the time to slow down and was VERY distracted by all the students who
barged into the classroom.
After a few weeks of struggling,
I decided to take the problems I was working on at the time and turn
them into a set of mini comics called Puzzle League!
The pages were all adapted from
algebra problems that I had at the moment. (With a little help from a
tutor.) Each page went over the equations and showed you how to solve
them with easy to understand phrases, paragraphs, and graphics.
Looking through each page, I
thought that I could share more of them with the world and help
children excel in math. So, I decided to turn Puzzle League into an
I had planned to refine all of
the pages once I finally graduated High School so I could submit them
to a successful publisher in my region. I had big plans for Puzzle
League as after Algebra, I thought about handling other subjects like
Science and Literature. (Since I really liked those topics!)
Sadly, work on Puzzle League
suddenly slowed down due to the fact that I began to immediately lose
faith in my math abilities after I continued to get harassed over and
over again by a lot of the students. (The teachers didn't help either.
As they joined in on the harrassment.)
After about a year, I realized
that I wasn't going to get anywhere with this book. (Or, math as a
whole...) And scrapped Puzzle League to work on my other original ideas
alongside my game development career.
I never got around to designing
any characters for the book. And even though I DID manage to finish a few pages before
it's cancelation, my stepmom found them and wasn't too happy with how I
was taking my math.
She tossed all of the pages into
the trash (Along with a few other High School notes.) and yelled at me
Maybe, I wasn't lucky enough to
go to a better school were the teachers and students actually treated
me right. Maybe, my stepmom should've been more supportive of my
Either way, I just wish I had a
This one brings me back!
The project that would give me a
bit more experience in things like character design and writing.
This was to be a series of web
comics that followed the adventures of Rudy Sketchitt and his best
Rudy never really had a last name
yet until I started to draw him some more.
(If you look closely to the bottom,
you can make out the Japanese name for the comic.)
Since this was my first REAL
project, I experimented a lot when it came to things like character
design and writing. Unfortunately, that's where the problems began.
I could never come up with any
good stories for these characters and I also had trouble designing the
supporting cast. It didn't help that I got really busy with school.
After a few months passed by, I
guess I slowly forgot about this comic's existence.
I never really gave it an actual
cancelation. But based on how life's going for me now, I don't think
I'll be reviving it any time soon.
