This is the first time I’m posting my comic, Courage, as my Digital Artefact for BCM112. For marking purposes, it begins here – not an ideal starting point because it’s mid-event, but that’s where the comic was up to when the subject started. For context, or just for fun, you can read the rest of it here on DeviantArt!
For context purposes, if you don’t feel like reading what I’ve drawn so far, here’s what’s going on.
The team consists of five pokemon: Milo the Croconaw, Bandit the Furret, Beak the Pidgeotto, Cipher the Unown, and Baby the Togepi.
They’ve beaten the first gym, and have one gym badge. They all played a part in hatching Baby’s egg, and they’re close like family now. Currently they are resting in the Slowpoke Well, and Team Rocket is doing something nefarious – they’re using sleeping gas on the resident Slowpoke, and cutting off their tails to sell for profit!
Chapter 5: Something to Protect
Pages 09 to 12
I’ll update once a week at least, or twice if I can manage it (but I do have other projects going on, so maybe not.)
When Baby the Togepi hatched, Beak’s untapped motherly rage was awoken. She’s not so much of a scaredy bird any more – not when someone is threatening her flock!
From here, project-wise, I’ll be doing some weekly research into the phenomenon of community-based derivative works and unpack what place this comic holds in social and digital spheres.
