EDIT: Thank you for the overwhelmingly positive response! Seriously you all are the greatest. Thank you for your advice, your offers of assistance, and everything else. :) Right now, tentatively, I'm thinking that I'll start a group for NuzRooke Sun and those who join the production team will be a part of that group. I think what I'd like, is for it to be an opportunity for a group project, rather than just my own. I would actually really love to do that - so that anyone who'd like to try working on a comic can get the experience, or show off their artwork, or even just try new things without repercussions in their own work. I think if that becomes NuzRooke Sun's focus, it'll become more than just a sequel to NuzRooke, but become something more meaningful. ^u^
For now, I think that starting the comic will wait until after I finish doing Dear Dragon, so that I'm working on two comics at a time. Dear Dragon won't take too much longer, since it's so simple to draw and I work at a relatively fast clip with it. But once that's finished, I'll gather everyone I talked to here, and we can make a gameplan to make an awesome comic.
Together. :)



This is just sending out a call in case anyone is interested.

So - I've been planning, for a while, to do a NuzRooke sequel of some sort. I recently finished a playthrough of Sun that I believe will become the story of the sequel. I had plenty of great characters who I loved in the game, so I'm excited to start the project eventually.

One of the reasons why I haven't started it yet...I don't know. I love NuzRooke a lot, and sometime I wonder if a sequel would be superfluous. Like, I love the ending of NuzRooke, I love the story in its completion. It doesn't need a sequel. Really, the main reason I even considered doing a sequel was because I knew you guys would like it. XD

Another thing is time. I'm working on Dragontry as my main comic project, Dear Dragon helps me bounce between it and feel productive, and then I have a handful of commission pieces I'm working on at any time. Add that to my endless stream of art projects for my university classes, and art wise, I really don't have much creative juice or creative time to spare.

And then, a bit of a silly worry, but one that strikes home to me as a storyteller, is I worry that doing the sequel would put myself further in NuzRooke's shadow. I mean...the story that I truly love and want to share the most, the one that means something to me, is Dragontry. So I want people to love it just as much as I do. And I fear that if I start doing NuzRooke's sequel, then people will love it more than Dragontry, and Dragontry and myself as an original storyteller will end up in NuzRooke's shadow. And I don't want that. I want Dragontry to shine as its own, unique thing. ^^

These are some things I've been wondering about.

Now, because I'm doing NuzRooke Sun for your sake - I wonder - if any of you would like to help me make it happen?

When I did NuzRooke the first time, due to extenuating circumstances in my life, I sent out the call for the help of colorists and background artists, who then made NuzRooke so much better than I ever imagined it would be. There is no time crunch this time, like before, but I'd like to send out the same call, if only if it will help make NuzRooke Sun that much more likely to happen.

I'd like to invite anyone who might be interested in helping me create NuzRooke Sun, and be a part of Team NuzRooke? We'd all work together on the pages, you'd get early access to the story, and you'd help with either coloring characters or painting backgrounds. Those that join Team NuzRooke will also get their artwork showcased and advertised - I could even start a new account that we could all share to make NuzRooke Sun it's own thing. :) Is there any of you would be interested in such a team endeavor?

Tl;dr  In order to make NuzRooke Sun the comic more likely to happen, would anyone like to join a team of artists to color and do backgrounds for it?

I read through the original Nuzrooke (cried a couple time, too) and I loved it! I'm just curious about how Nuzrooke Sun would connect to the original, timewise.

Well, you mentioned that you stalked my favorites, and you said there was an old nuzlocke comic that you wanted to show me, but you never ended up noting me about it and I got impatient so I looked through your favorites and read through nuzrooke silver in a single night.

And I've already read at least most of them.

I'm willing to help out, if you ever need a back up artist. I've been practicing backgrounds with my own comic, so it'll be good practice to test out my skills in various ways.

As for living in Nuzrooke's shadow, though, I honestly don't think you have anything to seriously worry about. The people who watch you come for stories, not just nuzlocke a. Yes, many may have started their journey with you because of your nuzlocke, but they stayed for the tales you tell. Not to mention that new watchers you get could come more for Dragontry or your original works than for your fan fiction. After all, you put more effort into Dragontry on the whole, what with creating an original story, characters, setting, etc., than you ever would have to with a nuzlocke. People will appreciate that. There's also the fact that people who focus on origins comics and stories here on DA tend to get large followings of their own because of their writing/story telling styles. Basically, you've got nothing to fear there. If it's a story you feel is worth telling, then do it. We're all here to support you as a fellow artist! ^^

I can understand your concerns. they are legitimate concerns. I would only want you to do this if you felt commited to such a story, and could enjoy the storytelling. Not sure that I have the requisite skills, but I'm willing to join a coloring team if you decide to do this and need my aid. 
I wish you the best.

I've been a fan of you and NuzRooke for a few years now, and it actually got me into Pokemon!
I'd love to be able to join the team and do coloring/backgrounds!
I'd prefer to do coloring, but I can do a decent background :''0
I understand your concerns about it and Dragontry, and if you need me to I can share some ideas on how to make it work,,
recently I've been super motivated to do lots of art, and i'm thinking it's because I took like a week break from it x'D

here are some examples of my work,, the only one with a background is example 1 :''D
thank you for the opportunity!!

example 1

example 2

example 3 [gore warning]

example 4

example 5

I enjoyed NuzRooke ever since I first joined DA, so a sequel sounds amazing-- but I don't think you should force it on! That being said, I'd love to help with coloring or backgrounds-- I have a ton of experiences with collabs (and how it works) and such so I do think I could help! ; u ;

Examples of BG:
( Note! I'm still learning on how do to proper backgrounds and such-- so I'm not the best, but I think this would be a good experience in helping me with perspective and such ; u ; )

Examples of Coloring: ( Even though this mainly involves just providing what my art looks like-- I do know how layers and everything works! Also, all the collabs have me coloring+shading   c: )
