Random Doom - 5 Year Anniversary by TamarinFrog Random Doom - 5 Year Anniversary by TamarinFrog
Five years ago... On 28th of May 2007. I posted the very first Random Doom comic strip, [link] This simple comic, started something much bigger. Something I NEVER expected.

Now, five years later... I want to thank you all for making RD what it is today. I wouldn't be here and the series wouldn't be all way here without your support. I've developed a lot during these past five years in terms of drawing... And met so many nice people and fans. All because I just wanted to draw silly comics of my pokemon.

I want to thank you all for sticking around these past five years and not losing your patience with me even though I haven't been updating the series as much as I used to.

Thank you all... :thanks:
And remember, "Life is wonderful if you have a cookie.".

Is that the Zorua from the comic I saw on youtube? Where Cotton can't have a child, so their master when she got a pokemon egg  gave it to them to care for, and it hatched into that Zorua?
Chespinite Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2015
A Zorua!!!
Call her Shadow!

Wow, seeing this picture brought back a lot of memories. This comic is one of the best.
Sharpman01 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Seeing this image, I'm to assume a Zorua's gonna be an addition to the clan right?

how long did this take u to make? it looks so awesome that it looks like it took all those five years! ;D
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Heh, thanks. This took quite lot time... It's been a year so I don't remember exactly... But I think I spent at least two weeks with it... Maybe even a month.
McMuffindor Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow, thats amazing! All that work in a month? Thats a bit unbelievable! In the best way, of course. You have done such GREAT work! Don't stop please!
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Heh, thank you kindly. Drawing is my main hobby (and work) so I certainly won't stop. ^_^

Congrats tamarin I didn't expect you to make it so far into this someday I wish for my gōtalings to kick off like random doom. ^^ question though so hat are you gonna do for the 6th gen. How's that gonna effect the comic?
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you!

Sixth gen will most likely not effect the RD comic. We might see some cameos and hints of the new pokemon but nothing major. 5th gen will have their own comic that I've been working on a too damn long time. XD

What would the main human character look like as a pokemon?
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Hmm... I dunno actually... Maybe I'll tackle this idea someday. :)
con1011 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
Maybe a human shape pokemon?
con1011 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
After thinking & looking thru your gallery, i think she would be a Ampharos.

I LOVE your work me (Ichigo) and my friend Blackheart are creating our own collaboration comic called Blue Leaf (NOT like your's of course) We just started so we don't have any thing yet but we're working on it. I'm a HUGE Floatzel fan so your work is an inspiration for my work, IF you want you can read up my stores that I wrote on look for ether 'Floating love' or 'Zorua is born!' or 'Accidentally in love'.

Holy Arceus!!! I didn't know that the RD series started 5 YEARS AGO!!!!!!! :jawdrop:


Anyway, I'll now.... ^^;

I really adore your characters! <3

They all have such unique personalities and I just want to hug 'em! x3

I also adore the way you draw them, they look.......amazing.... :iconiwantitplz:

Anyway, I love how everyone's creative with their Pokemon's personalities and how they would look like - even though they won't look like their game version, still....It's the thoughts that count.... :meow:

I love your work - I think I already said that, but I'm so forgetless that I forgot. xD

And yes, life is wonderful if we have a cookie....though my life isn't wonderful since it's been a long while since I had a cookie. :stare:

Anyway, you deserve a cookie as well... :cookie:
That thing is small, but that's all I can bake because I'm afraid that I'll blow up my oven....o3o<sub>
AikoAkaNeko Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
What cracks me up is your Sableye character (sorry I don't do names XD) because he's so different to another main-or-very-often-appearing-character in another Pokemon group that I'm in.
And It's just so funny. I love to see how different people view or imagine different pokemon and how their types work too!
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you and yes! It is great to see how much imagination people have.
Mangagirl18 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
