Welcome to Nuzlocke on Ice!

What is this comic about?

Roland Sheppard, a laid-back 20 year old from Dewford in the Hoenn region, has just passed his trainer certification in Pallet along with his classmates. Now he and the others can pursue the League challenge in Kanto, but things aren't as easy as he thinks they will be, especially when he announces to his soon-to-be rival that he will only be using Water-type Pokemon. (And blue Pokemon. But same thing, right?) [A comic of my run with Pokemon LeafGreen: Hard Mode, or rather, a (sort of) monotype Nuzlocke challenge]

Can I read this comic anywhere else?

Currently, NOICE is up on:

Evolution by gaining experience through battling is relatively painless in Pokemon, albeit fairly frightening if they or the trainer aren't aware it's going on. Dizziness, difficulty concentrating, lightheadedness, fatigue, and malaise are all very common and aren't a reason to be concerned. Trainers should only be worried if the symptoms persist and no evolution has happened.

All symptoms disappear after the Pokemon has evolved, with their energy level bouncing right back! :>

The biggest influence to Wartortle BB's final design was... my mom! So, if you think that he is really cute, all thanks goes to her. :'>

Once I got the basic shape down of how I wanted Wartortle BB to look, I changed up different variations of his features to see which ones my mom thought were the cutest to compare to the ones that I thought were the cutest. The result is an agreement on what would be adorable on BB, even though he's getting bigger!

Patreon rewards are up!

Rewards for April are up on Patreon! This month we got:

- Concept art for Magnemite I guess??? (i thought this was a comic about water pokemon and blue pokemon but okay i guess)
- Thumbnails of Chapter 6, pages 10 - 13
- Inks of Chapter 6, pages 10 - 13
- PSDs of Chapter 6, pages 10 - 13
- Two characters acting out this text post
- Someone familiar wearing THIS shirt
- A colored sketch of a spoiler character going :0

...Not to mention all of the spoiler Wips that patrons will be getting until Chapter 8 officially starts! Also, because rewards of thumbnails, inks, and PSDs are still lagging back in Chapter 6, I'll be ramping up the amount of pages patrons get for rewards so we can catch up closer to Chapter 8.

In other words... it's a pretty good time to become a patron, because you’ll be getting A LOT of stuff. ;> If you enjoy "Nuzlocke on Ice" and enjoy bonus content, please consider becoming a patron today!

Or, if you're more interested in a one-time donation, you can donate to my ko-fi account, instead. Every little bit helps!

Thank you to ALL of my patrons, who help me continue to make this comic!

BB’s Wartortle design wasn’t actually finalized until I started sketching the page where his Wartortle form first appears (CH7, P22). I wasn’t satisfied with his design before starting Chapter 7, but since Chapter 7 was so long I thought the design would come to me by then. (Nope.)
