How many people have been biten in the arse because of some photo and an internet connection? Too darn many. Originally it was going to be another AU comic, except Nini wouldn't take suggestive photos of herself. Nidorina's a different case, but then again she's married.
Non canon, but rather in character. She's competent with computers, so her being into PC games isn't a far stretch. For the record, I don't play first person shooters.
Also, I dislike that commercial. Or any commercial with the sophisticated modern woman and the neanderthal who can't tell his head from his arse. So very tired of them. What the heck happened to all the men in America? Nevertheless, for some reason it was on my mind, and a gag similar to this came up. This isn't a "Take That" towards the commercial (it doesn't bother me that much), but more of a cute sincerity that would come from Nidorina. Done with cool grey Prismacolors and inking pens (I love these items).
She looks like an adorable chubby koala, I can't stand it ahlaksjdhlkah
People sometimes ask where I get my inspirations/material from. Simply put, about 80% of it comes from real life. Case in point, the cafeteria where I get my lunch has flavor syrups you can add to soft drinks/tea/juice. You can also get soda water/club soda/seltzer water straight from the dispenser. So I mixed together caramel flavored syrup and soda water. It made me think about the idea of a caramel drink, and then just straight melted caramel, and I knew which character to assign that thought too. Also, caramel flavored soda is actually very... ah, unique.
The first animated comic on this site! It's wonderfully stupid!
Is this the first time in the site's history that Nina's ever been the focus of anything? Well, at least I can check that off before this site inevitably goes dormant in the future. Nina's fussy but cute, and in fairness, she probably shouldn't have had her ears played with like that. She can't help that they're longer than normal.
It's not that Nidorina doesn't have better things to do than await Nidorino's return (or in this case, meet him there), but Nidorino is her favorite person in the world to be with. The heart wants what it wants, man. This is a little OOC in that she'd never leave her children unattended, and if she left them with Nidoran and Nidoran, this would still have been planned earlier and not last minute.
Inspired by me observing a chicken wing. That's all it takes.
This one is weird because Nidorina's out of character in a different way. If this were based on early Poke Tales, when Nidorina was snappier and defensive, then this comic could work. However, Totodile appeared in Legends, and Nidorina mellowed out by this time, realizing the world wasn't out to get her. Her treatment of Psy seems more like early Tales Nidorina, so while it's not beyond the scope of her behavior, it feels like a regression here. Anyway, the point is that what Nidorina's willing to do for her son's childhood and prolonging that innocence is something she would totally do in any era.
This is perfectly in line with a Poke Tales short. I'm also quite proud of Nidorina's matronly anime look. She looks huggably adorable, if not a little too wide canonically.
