@John Doe: No, she will have footwear for certain terrians. She won't be a barefooter forever.

@LilBruno: i understand for certain times, but still think it would not be a good idea to no longer have her as a barefooter

Maybe it would be funnier to leave her barefoot?)

But still, why she decided to be barefooter? Or it is a norm for her family? Through she wore socks in the begining

@John Doe: her being barefoot is more of an attribute of her stubbornness and childishness. As she ages and matures more (she ages 1 year per region) she will slowly become more accustomed to wearing footwear while traveling but will still go back to barefoot whenever the opportunity presents itself (e.g. sleeping/relaxing, indoors, at home, etc.) As for why she wore socks when younger and barefoot now is more of her transitioning from living with her parents to living with her brother, but I'm not going into her back story because it will be in the comic much later on and its not something I wish to reveal at this time.

@LilBruno: still seems such a shame such it also shows passion and stubbornness isnt always a bad thing. plus there are lots of mature women who also prefer to be barefooters.Some already being pokemon characters already like Maylene

@Match25: Yea, its tough. When I started this comic I never realized the topic would become so polarizing amongst readers but I feel like the description I gave in my comment is a happy medium between staying barefoot and wearing footwear and is closest to my original vision for my character and how I see Sydney. We'll see how the story unfolds, changes are always happening as I write...

@LilBruno: I personally think it's an interesting 'quirk' that makes her stand out a little more from other Protagonists in Pokemon webcomics.

If you want to do something with your story - do it and dont try to cater to audience. Such actions often ruin good stories(look at my little pony for example. Amount of fanservice in later seasons becomes terrifying) Oh, and have your story in notebook. That help in case of forced hiatus) best of luck

@John Doe: Thanks! Yea, I do plan out the next 5 or so pages at a time in a notebook as well as random scenes for much later on as they come to me. I also write a generalized series of events to follow. I have a separate notebook for each of my comics, its definitely something I've put a lot of thought into. I appreciate your comment, thank you :)

I would like to see Sydney to walk freely as long as possible. She is so adorably gorgeous when she is barefoot :)

Just simple question - how many iterations Sydney design had? Was she drawn at one go or was redrawn many times? Have you ever consider piercing/tattoos for her or maybe some pankish staff? Thought about anklets/toerings/painted nails?)

@John Doe: the very basic look was always there; a sideways hat, the two-toned hair, orange eyes and body type. Earlier in development there have been different outfits though and she did have boots at one point. Personality wise, she's been the same since concept and just developed more and more. Early Sydney designs can actually be seen on my Facebook page if you'd like to see them under the Sydney comic album: www.Facebook.com/LilBrunogi although there is an older design not on there where she had sneakers, gym shorts and a different shirt. I may make a post on the amino app to show off her older designs.
And no I never considered tattoos, piercings or nail polish, they are things I didn't associate with this character.

Thanks for link) Yeah, new design is more memorable, couse her being barefoot and this top make a pretty good silouette) First one was kinda too standart))

Just a small advice - when you would start her wearing shoes, try to give her something other then sneakers or she would kinda get very generic "trainer OC"

Story I love the story! Are you going to make this follow the silly stuff from the old gameboy games? I got major nostalgia reading this!

There is a Alternative for sneakers These:

Barebottom Shoes (Highly recommended)
http://suekenney.ca/barefoot/
or Vibram Five Fingers
http://www.edleiveryexpo.com/vibram-five-fingers-vs-running-shoes/

The latter doesn't allow you to be grounded, as well receiving health benefits.

The barebottom shoes keep your feet warm though, which even allows you to walk on snow.
There are also the Earth Grounding Barefoot Shoes which only use simple leather to protect the skin and muscles, but they still allow all benefits as well feeling the ground. Visually however they don't look different from other shoes.

Sydney however should have no problems walking on mountain terrain since she walks barefoot for several years.

There are also barefoot hikers. For example "The Barefoot Sisters" Susan and Lucy Letcher.
http://barefoothikers.org/barefoot-sisters.html

I wouldn't mind for Sydney to become a barefoot hiking Pokemon Trainer. This is something very unique, which make her stand out of the lot of the OC Trainers.

Edit: I started not long ago to walk barefoot myself, I however still need shoes until my feet are completely conditioned.

Accidentally the author has created a barefoot Pokemon Trainer :)

Let Sydney be barefoot whenever she goes, because it matches her character's personality very much.

Disagreement I disagree with the anti Sneaker thing. I love her because she is a Tomboy, but nothing says Tomboy shoes like Sneakers and I am not saying this because of my selective fetish it's one of the least reason theres nothing better then tomboys out there. In this guys humble opinion. Now if I could only a real one to date. By the time I knew I loved a Tomboys I've only one relationship and before I asked a Tomboy and she said yes and her making me cyber her it lasted the longest of my 4 relationships, until she said typed something that was girly and it was like our relationship was a built on a lie and for once I dumped instead of being dumped online all loves and two real crushes. as well my current friends are all online.
