That's a chess piece, so you know. A queen piece, specifically. Watch for these chess pieces. They are important. I attempted something like shading on it, but I'm not really all that happy with it. Need to experiment some more.

Awwww . . . Mewthree looks so fatherly. (Ooo, did I just confirm something, or am I just messing with you? Mwahahaha!) That picture looked a bit cuter when I drew it. I think I messed something up when I penned it. Still not too bad though. I just wish I knew what to do with Mewthree's tail sometimes.

I've been abusing big panels lately . . .

Anyway, visit the forums!

An edit. I was just going to make you guys live with the fact that that piece was a queen and not a bishop, but then decided I better edit it. Not everyone reads my comments and stuff, I don't think.

So, I've edited the piece to look more like a queen. At least a queen according to Wikipedia. Hope that eliminates some confusion.

^_^ <3 Mewthree

Hmm... The chess piece, the pawn, could symbolise the Rocket grunts... Could it be Giovanni moving them in part of a strategy?!

klinkhauer, May 12th, 2008, 1:16 pm

It looks more like a Bishop to me... Then again, I haven't played chess in a while... And I wasn't even very good to begin with. XD I did beat my dad and a friend of mine, both whoa re very good chess players, but it was mostly through dumb luck. They had to tell me I won. XDDD

And hey, sometimes big panels are useful, and just what you want for pacing. :3 i usually just cut my pages in half... XD

Junethine, May 12th, 2008, 2:39 pm

Hmm... Looks like we've got ourselves a classic chessmaster watching the pieces... or something. Oh, and could you change the name of my character to Jamie Fae?

Vye Brante, May 12th, 2008, 2:49 pm

IxyofthePixiStix: Yup!

Joshua: Perhaps! That is a very good guess. We'll just have to see.

klinkhauer: Does it? I didn't exactly do research on them before I drew it. I just decided to make them up. I think it also depends on the set you are using, but then I don't know a lot about chess. Very little in fact. I've never played the game all the way through.

Big panels are useful, but then it takes more pages to tell the story. I'm just not worrying about that right now it seems.

Tyto Alba: Ha ha, yeah, I could be.

Glad that panel is still okay!

Junethine: Sure, I can change her name. The chess pieces will be appearing here and there, so keep watching to see if you're right!

CursedBluto, May 12th, 2008, 4:21 pm

Looks like a Bishop without the wedge from his head missing.

Wow. Mewthree is a lot bigger than his predecessor. I always imagined Mewtwo as slightly shorter than most humans, but tending to stand on high points like a cat to give himself a feeling of superiority.

One thing I've noticed about Mewthree, seeing as he's black, is that your pencil etchings are lighter. Is this intentional, or simply a flaw with how the world works? You could probably get by with that, but I think I know how to fix that in photoshop, if you're interested(don't remember what program you use).

kirbyboy102, May 12th, 2008, 4:35 pm

Yay, queen piece~ The bottom look a bit flat, however.

And... NOOOOOO, her (biological) mother's man-servant is ther father!

kay osse, May 12th, 2008, 4:40 pm

no offense, but maybe it woulda looked better out of the way (the tail)

but i dunno. maybe it looks better like this.

and yes. i like ur last page. specially blackie (can i call him that? please?)

it kinda loks like a pawn tho... the chess piece...

are u gonna do an alice in wonderland, where the story is a chess game? thats the entire secind book, a chess game, but ud need to know chess a bit for me to explain it properly. ill explain the game to u if ud like :)

kay osse, May 12th, 2008, 4:40 pm

on another look... it looks like a bishop (sorry, it irks me when im wrong.)

Hanzinator, May 12th, 2008, 5:32 pm

Chess? What's with the chess? There's this ultra nerd in my health class who tries to be funny with chess. Ugh.

kay osse, May 12th, 2008, 5:42 pm

Forums Okay, you have convinced me. I WILL create an account to use on smackjeeves. And I will use it to visit the forums (and to rate all your comics 5)!

Hanzinator@teh library (Guest), May 12th, 2008, 6:10 pm

Hey, the guy with no username might be from my school! I've been visiting the site at school and it stays in the search history. That was my old way of publicising my comic. Until I found out how to bookmark it.

Oranges_and_Pears, May 12th, 2008, 6:37 pm

Aw!! Panel 2 is cute!

The guy with no username (Guest), May 12th, 2008, 6:44 pm

School As far as the comic goes, it looks pretty good. In panel 2, though, Hillaree appears to be bending slightly backwards. Hanzinator, do you go to school at PMA? I'm slightly nervous about blurting the school's name out loud, so those are the initials.

CursedBluto, May 12th, 2008, 7:32 pm

Nah; the school computers here at IMS are interlinked very thoroughly; the most it'd do is remember your guest name and rewrite all Han's posts as "the guy with no username." Steve prolly forgot to reset the browsing history.

Vye Brante, May 13th, 2008, 2:10 am

CursedBluto: Well, it's a queen. This set is different. So there and stuff.

I knew I should have done research . . .

Mewtwo is 6'7". He ain't short. Mewthree is the same heighth or possibly an inch taller, so he isn't short either. I still don't know if I have the proportion right between them, but I'm getting closer.

And the "etching" as you put it is lighter on purpose. I orignally did a test to see how he'd look in the comic and grayscaled him as normal, and it looked fine. But when he actually was about to appear in the comic, it for some reason didn't work as well. You couldn't see the lines for his legs or his arms or whatever. He kinda just blended into himself. I didn't like it, so after I color him black, I go over the lines with a gray. I keep changing my mind about how dark the gray should be though.

kirbyboy102: Yay indeed! Everyone just needs to accept the bishop as a queen. We'll get along better.

Ha ha, who said it was the man-servant thing? And even if it was, who said the man-servant wasn't Mewthree? I'm just sayin' . . .

kay osse: Yeah, I think the tail is weird too. I don't know what to do with it sometimes. But if I don't show part of it at least, it looks like it's cut off or something.

Sure, I guess you can call Mewthree Blackie if you really want . . . Glad you liked the last page.

I don't know the Alice in Wonderland thing you're referring to, and I doubt its like that. We'll see though. And it's a queen, no matter what it looks like. Because I said so.

Your comic looks good so far, so keep it up!

Hanzinator: The chess thing is important, but won't be explained fully for a while, so you'll just have to keep your eyes out for it.

The guy with no username: I saw you on the forum. That's great! Welcome!

I'd let guests rate but I got too many low ratings for no clear reason, so I put took that privilege away. Sorry about that.

Hillaree's supposed to be leaning that way. I don't know why. That's just how I imagined it. Hope it's excusable.

Oranges_and_Pears: Thanks! I agree! Could be better, but I agree.

kingsamurai, May 13th, 2008, 3:39 am

O NOES.

CHECKMATE.

kay osse (Guest), May 13th, 2008, 6:53 am

in alive in wonderland (actually, the sequel to it) the entire book is alive going across the kingdom as a pawn. Cept she knew she was a pawn.

Yeah I doubt its like that.

Thx bout my comic.

maybe one day I'll earn a spot on that affiliates list!

Vye Brante, May 13th, 2008, 2:44 pm

kingsamurai: Yikes!

kay osse: Yeah, it's not like that. Can't explain at this ponit what it is, so we'll see down the line.

Vye Brante, May 13th, 2008, 5:34 pm

Like I said . . . Yes, it was on purpose. That's how I imagined it, and so that's how I drew it.

And welcome to Smack Jeeves!

Cliffyorbin, May 13th, 2008, 5:46 pm

i was Wondering i was wondering if you siad that any of Hillaree's pokemon Would Evolve?

Vye Brante, May 13th, 2008, 5:48 pm

Um . . . I can't remember who I've confirmed. Some will and some won't, but I won't say which ones right now because I can't remember who I've said will.

spudwalt (Guest), December 16th, 2008, 9:01 am

Let me guess: the person talking in the last panel is the evil mastermind, yes?
