    it looks fine, scheduled it for tomorrow :)

    since Halloween has passed, a little bump re: a new profile picture! if someone's interested in drawing an Ultra Sun and Moon-themed Koffing picture for a new profile picture, let me know. these were my ideas if you are looking for inspiration but really it can be anything

    willing to do Necrozma, but wanted to make sure we're just talking Base Form before diving into the art?

    You need to be an approved artist. I dont see you on the list.

    I'm afraid we can't use that as the profile pic.

    getting the colors right on the eyes was ludicrously difficult, turns out there aren't a lot of good commonly available traditional art materials that when inverted make red.

    Man, your Necrozma looks insane. Such a cool idea on its own to draw the image in negative and invert it in post, which must have taken a fair amount of forethought to get right. Great use of value too; those scratchy white lines do a nice job defining its contours while simultaneously obscuring some of them, making it appear to melt into the drawing surface. Really cool way of illustrating a Pokemon with such an important connection to light & darkness.
