I mostly like this one. Eevee came out well, I think, as did the stones.
10/03/2021: Chapter 20 illustration
The wonky perspective on chapter 18 bothered me so I meticulously measured this unremarkable scene out with CSP's perspective ruler. It took less time than expected for its complexity, though; I somehow managed it in four days (it's being posted a couple days late because I've had no time).

Actually posting the art on time, miracle of miracles!

Chapter thirteen! Drawing all those Scorplack was a lot (and if you look closely a lot of the background ones are just blobs).

Man, I keep thinking I've already posted these when I haven't.

A bit late as ever, but chapter ten.
08/07/2021: Chapter 9 illustration
Not too thrilled with this one, city background hard, but I do like the Mark from the back.
08/05/2021: Chapter 8 illustration
Oops I keep forgetting to post here
I spotted some mistakes in this after finishing it, miiiight tweak it?
07/31/2021: Chapter 7 illustration
This could be better but hhhh.
07/24/2021: Chapter 6 illustration
There are a lot of things going on in chapter six, but the most illustration-worthy of them is clearly Eevee being cute.

Mark bringing Eevee to the Pokémon Center.

06/19/2021: Happy Nineteenth! (a.k.a Prologue Illustration)Happy nineteenth birthday to The Quest for the Legends! I have begun a possibly overambitious project to attempt to illustrate each chapter of the fic over the course of the next year, leading up to the twentieth anniversary.
This is primarily an art improvement exercise, but regardless, I'm going to post the completed illustrations here as I go, because I might as well and it's not like there's much else to post here these days!
Here is the prologue:
10/06/2019: Commentary: chapter 77Chapter 77: Home (commentary)
And with that, the Quest for the Legends commentary is a wrap. Read this final entry for another character who came very close to getting the axe, the cut scene about the fixing of Volcaryu, me somehow forgetting about the people who died, some closure for everyone, and my thirteen-year-old self's amazing epilogue plans.
Thanks to everyone who's followed this commentary with me! I've enjoyed doing this a lot, but now I need a good break.
So how about that next revision? Well, it's not happening now - I've got a lot of other things I'd like to do with my new free time for the moment. I certainly still want to return to it, but I can't tell you when that would be. I expect writing-wise I'd first be going for the sorely-needed rewrite of Morphic, and possibly Scyther spin-offs (even more sorely needed). Also there's this Detective Pikachu the game one-shot that I'd planned out and want to finish. And Groundhog Dave.
But we'll see! I still have a tremendous love for this story. If I do that rewrite of chapter 76 I'll let you know. Thank you all for reading!
09/29/2019: Commentary: chapter 76Chapter 76: Chalenor (commentary)
This week, I comment on the penultimate chapter, where we finally learn what happened before the last War of the Legends, Mew and Chalenor fail to talk to each other about their issues with disastrous results, and everything is people and their bad decisions all the way down.
