    Edit: Changed a few details.

    I ended up only using spikes, it's the move which best suits him imo. I figured this image could be used for Opening the Door - A Guide to Entry Hazards, while I'll make another image for A Guide to Common Battle Conditions tomorrow which will be showing spikes, toxic spikes and stealth rock within a square split in three parts.

    However, Uber Hazard Guide only has 6 posts, OP included, with new posts taking from weeks to months to be made, so unless that article decides to pick up some speed, I won't be making an image for it.

    The image was good enough before, but that texture really nailed it!

    Edit: Whoops, forgot to mention what I wanted to do next.

    I read the Double Battle Primer earlier, and I like the way it was written and how it managed to give me an appetite for double battles. So I figured I could draw two images for the parts 'Team Building' and 'Battle Strategy'. The idea for the first one would be best described with this PA strip, but with the team lined up in the background (yet to decide which pokes, feel free to recommend some) and the drill sergeant's mouth yelling up front. Idea for the latter would be two pokemon inspecting a map with icons and pointers, maybe even a whiteboard if I feel generous (preferrably two pokes who work well together in double battle).

    Don't know when I'll get down to it, but I should at least have things done 1st February. It's nice to have a date so that I don't let this collect dust, so I encourage others to do the same.

    Here's my ubers stall pic! Skarm ain't gonna take any punishment from anybody. If it's not up to standards for the ubers stall guide, and you want something better than this, I can try some new stuff with this and see if you like.......

    I wanted to try something for the Breeding Guide (Part 2, since it the one that has more to be with the pokemon breeding between each other), so I did this

    Just posting to say I haven't forgotten about the Baton Pass article I said I was doing artwork for. I'll be doing that, as well as the chaining guide art.

    Here's what I have for the DPP Sunny Day article. Is it big/small enough? It's 700x700 pixels.

    Edit: Also may I reserve BW UU Speed Tiers?

    I guess this would go here, but I'd like to request a picture to be done for the Wacky Wi-Fi tournament series.

    The idea is Diversity Cup, so I'd like to have Jynx, Smeargle, Blaziken, Roserade, and Jellicent (Male) all in a row in a picture like this.

    I have an idea for the 5th gen RNG article, though it would work for other RNG articles too (I may have missed them when looking through).

    The idea is simple:
    A trainer is walking through a route and all the pokemon there are shiny.

    I thought it might be a good way of representing visually the ridiculous odds which RNG creates, as it were.
