Fan Run Feature #3: Tales of Sinnoh & Myths of Unova

05-23-2013

What? Do your eyes deceive you? Did Nuzlocke actually post a new fan run feature??

The answer is yes, loyal readers, once again I've decided to grace you with my meaningless opinions on other people's hard work.

Don't feel afraid to sing praises of my greatness.

...but yeah, since as of now I'm going forward with the whole post-episode-8-in-one-update thing, I'll be posting at least one fan challenge per week to make the wait more bareable. So without further ado, lets talk about the awesome Tales of Sinnoh and Myths of Unova.
 

 
These two runs are by Kynim, one of the coolest cats to grace my forums with their talent.

Her two runs, while both highly enjoyable, are actually pretty distinct in pacing and art style. Tales of Sinnoh, her first nuzlocke comic, is a fast paced ride that speeds you through the craziness of Sinnoh. The art here is pretty sketchy, but in the best way possible. There's so much motion going on in the panels, and she really makes the most of her panels. The whole thing is just fluid as hell, the art and story flow together perfectly. 

Also, amidst the sketchiness, there's some really beautiful panels along the way.
 

Myths of Unova, her latest (and still ongoing) comic, is a very different beast. The pacing is a bit slower, focusing a little more on character  interactions and story than the previous comic.

Oh, and the art. Did I mention the art? Right off the bat it impresses the eye, and it only gets better as it goes along.
 

Like seriously, it's really good. I burn with envy at her abilities.

I'm not sure if she just improved through practice or if she was just holding out on us before, but it's impossible to ignore the improvement. 

I highly recommend this run, especially because it's not finished yet! If you're reading this fan feature and you're intrigued, now you've got one more web comic to follow, and I've done my job right.

Oh, and even though I didn't post any, there's totally video segments, incase you needed anymore reasons to check this run out.

Seriously, go check it out. GO.

(I'll just be crying over my shitty art in the corner.)

Don't be sad, your art are getting better, especially compare to your earlier comic.

Dang! The block on my school laptop prevented me from checking these out for a while. However Freddy and Hale were excellent runs (though it looks like they both were suspended) so I'll be sure to check this out when i get the time. Oh and might as well throw out a plug for my favorite. Quartz: What's Wrong with Me. by Zerodeath. Trust me. It's a screenshot take on one of the most infamous (but not the worst) rom on the web.

btw one of the pros of google chrome is it warns you that refreshing the page will submit another comment.

Go 2012 for two years strong.

Nuzlocke forgot to mention all of the shipping in Myths of Unova.

To quote Kynim, "EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO SHIPPING"

What a coincidence, I just finished marathoning Kynim's runs when I saw this post. She truly has a knack for character interaction and emotional storylines. her art is nothing to shake a stick at, either. Makes me so jealous.

hi
Nuz, you gotta remember that you inpired these people. They wouldn't be doing this without your shitty art (kidding... i love your work)!

I love Kynim! And your art is better than some of the comics on your forums, though.

I was enjoying Kynim's but a bunch of the links toward the end wouldn't work for me, anyone else have that problem?

Just for fun, I'm going to add that if a certain Death Nuzlocke Run gets noted next, I want to hear Nuzlocke's opinion on the cross-run shipping that was violently alive for a while... Nuzgrumps, or NinJa, as some called the ship. Oh, that was a beast that did not go quiet.

Never was a huge fan of these ones personally, but I absolutely get why they'd be featured. I will agree that the art is wonderful!

About halfway through the Sinnoh run, the links send me to deviantart links that no longer exist. Is this happening to anyone else? Is there any other way to read the rest of it?

Read all her comics in 2 days, absolutely jealous or Roark... D: she truly is a goddess amongst mortals in the sense of character interaction, character development, art, and storyline. I really hope she expands past Pokemon and writes actual books and breaks this vampire trend all the people love reading.

@bball Of course there is just go to her Deviant Art page. All of the broken links and extra comics are there. Not to mention other drawings.

Her characterization of her pokemon is so good. It makes me look at my own and go: "ugh... why cant you be more like here!?"

Hehe, but its really inspiring me to look into characterization more. So, thanks Nuzlocke for showing me Kynim, and thanks Kynim for your inspiring comics :)

i have to admit: kynim did a great job in her nuzlock paintings and storyline.
i actually kept her page in my favorites (next to this site).

Tales of Sinnoh is not that good imo...Hard Mode does a much better job at making a comedy-oriented Nuzlocke.

Myths of Unova, however, OH MY GOD! That comic is SO good! Not only do the relationships feel REAL, they're really well made. Not only that, the characters are so nicely written and the art is superb!
Eh, yeah, sorry for saying pretty much what Nuzlocke said...

Mythes of Unovo is so friggin good...

Also, if you're looking for another great one to spotlight, might I recommend OLock's "It's a Hard Life"? The art is pretty amazing and the story is on par with Ky-Nim's runs.

Looks like it could be a fun read ^^
What is the artist like, Nuz? Could you let us know more details on who they are?

And hey, it takes effort to improve your talents, alright? Don't feel beat up, or anything.

The reason I mentioned getting to know the artist above, is because talent's not everything, really. I used to admire work from an extremely popular artist, then shortly I found out that the person was a disrespectful evil lump who was only nice to people who are as disrespectful as that person.

Nuzzy just be wary of people you come across, alright? Just letting ya know from firsthand experience. Plus this Kynim looks good to me ^^

Oh my godddddddd ;w;

Thank you for featuring Nuz! Although I think my Diamond run is okay art and story wise I'm glad you love my work!

@Trevor: I try to be nice to everyone if that helps hahahha;;;
