Professor Layton RP page 1 by nattherat Professor Layton RP page 1 by nattherat
So...in the evenings when I'm sick to death of working on Those of No Class or whatever, I usually dabble in fandom as a way to relax.

I mostly RP because it takes a lot less time and is a lot more relaxing to just write after all the painting I usually do, so I've been RPing Professor Layton here: [link]

My and my RP partner have a pretty big plot going on atm though that involves Layton getting a bit screwed up, and I guess becoming the closest that canon Layton could get to being 'evil'. Morally bankrupt are the words I am looking for.

Against my better judgement, I decided the plot really needed some oomph to get it off the ground, so decided to do this plot comic for it. Yep. I have all the best ideas, especially with London Expo and deadlines just around the corner! 8D

BTW in case you're wondering why this is in scraps, I put all of my fanart in scraps so that it is not contending with my original work to be noticed, not because I think less of it.

This is so cool! I love the style you used!! You managed to keep it remarkably Laytonesque, while adding an antique, darker look to it! 
Absolutely Gorgeous!

Oh I'm terribly sorry! You're about 3 or 4 years late. ;A; (Not your fault of course, this only just got added to some groups!)
Most of the story is archived on that linked tumblr though, so hopefully you can still read it and enjoy. :D

WOW! :eyepopping: 
Everything about this is splendid! You emulated the games' style so perfectly, but still managed to add your own touch in detail.
If they ever make a legitimate Professor Layton comic, you should be the one to illustrate it. No doubt.

:D I will be continuing it - I was away (haha in London, no less) for the last 10 days, but I'm back now and eager to do more of this.

(In the meantime though, I made a journal that lists all of my PL comics if you're interested/haven't seen it already: [link] )

Oooh, I'll head over to take a look now.

...Also, I'm really slow but I just looked in your scraps and had no idea you were the same person who did all those awesome StC Sonic pictures! Dude, Fleetway AND Layton/Descole? It's like I'm in heaven. :'D

I love StC-Online! :3 It genuinely feels so much like the original comic, right down to Megadroid. Aaaand they've just added a new issue recently, lots of goodness.

GEEZ! That's some really detailed stuff you got going on there!
The way the page is coloured makes the setting so....realistic. Like a dramatic detective movie.

Are you posting more pages anytime soon?

Since I can only do these outside of my normal work, it may take a while for me to do more pages. I'd say probably in a few weeks. :)

Haha, I wanted to challenge myself to create a believable 'evil' Layton. My favourite thing about the third game was the fact that for a brief while, Layton actually believed there was a possibility he could end up crooked and nasty in the future. I'm leading on from that. :D

Welcome~~ ;3;

That was my favourite thing as well. I was all like " No way. you could never... but damn its so freaking addicting to think about this possibilty~ "
you'll do a great job, Im sure of it.cant wait to see. wonder if he will still as gentlemanly as before just in a more... sinister & crazy way, nyarhar. B3

:iconnattherat:
nattherat Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011  Professional
XD Haha yep! He's more going to go down the lines of becoming embittered and twisted I think, believing he is being malicious for some sort of greater good rather than because he wants to be genuinely nasty or anything. :D

Ooooo. I think I'd like to see an "evil" Layton. No matter how awesome the good Layton is, everyone needs to get down with their bad self on occasion.
