    OK let's get some art in heere

    [​IMG]
    Main Design Baby CAP1! A more ambitious pose than the side-on, and shows the design better, but less successful as a drawing I think. Mainly because thicker lines cover up bad linework skills better :)

    [​IMG]
    CAP1 design! Hate the colours (and actually most everything else) on this now. But I like his face.

    [​IMG]
    Gen4 CAP11 design! I had to mess him up with that yellow stuff because of the Volt Absorb/whatever abilities he got.

    [​IMG]
    Heracross rules

    [​IMG]
    Eevee (+jolteon) drawings!

    [​IMG]
    HGSS inspired sketches!

    [​IMG]
    And lastly this is what I've been working on today. I decided to finally draw up a poketeam! This is my 9-member team in White. I love way too many pokemon in BW so I had to use them all haha. Scolipede (Rochefort) and Samurott (Ambroise) are both girls so I tried to make them more feminine. They are fist-bumping with Excadrill (India).
    The other names for whoever cares are FinDuMonde (Fraxure), Chambly (Chandelure), Duvel (Reuniclus), Boreale (Vanilluxe), C3 (Eelectrik).. and Fluffee haha (the in-game traded Whimsicott who was modest and had Prankster so I didn't need to breed it!.. but I was stuck with the name Fluffee hah). Bonus points if you get the naming theme I'm using :3

    I'm surprised I am your first reply. Your art work is really good. I credit your cute CAP 1 Pre-Evo design for me sticking to my mediocre design. Hopefully you will win.

    Going to parrot my original comment to you:

    Fantastic! I love it all. And ahhhhhhhhh your CAP11 design is fucking awesome, I love that too. Your style is very rounded and soft, which is fun. I look forward to more, and I hope you win babyCAP as well!

    Thanks guys!

    I've been trying to work on shading and linework.. here is a Ledian!
    [​IMG]

    and here is my team from Mystery Dungeon, Team Lemon-Lime! A work in progress..
    [​IMG]

    Here are a couple tutorials I have been reading
    http://tasteslikeanya.deviantart.com/art/Long-Tutorial-is-Long-204839464
    http://stuff.veekun.com/pkcolor/

    I really wanted to post this mystery dungeon drawing right away because I wanted to share something associated with it. I've always wanted to draw my mystery dungeon team but I got really inspired to do it after seeing the PMD art group on deviantart started by purplekecleon: http://pmd-explorers.deviantart.com/
    I thought other artists would be interested in checking it out. If I join, I won't be using these two, I have another team up my sleeve that I've been sketching :)

    Guh so CUUUTE!!!

    Do you take requests? If so, a Purugly that reaches the same level of cuteness would be amazing, thank you

    I dunno about requests, but tossing out suggestions can't hurt, I might decide to do some! Purugly is pretty great!

    I finished the picture that goes with the Bouffalant - here it is:
    [​IMG]

    I think it could be better, but Corphish gives me such a hard time! Also I definitely should have decided on a colour scheme before hand, the colours here are not the best, too light and not enough contrast or interest.

    Anyway, Bouffalant and Corphish are supposed to be a potential PMD team - Team Surf'N'Turf!

    The Corphish is really adorable, and the Ledian is dynamic, soulful and amazing! I support your babyCAP design. The only one I don't like is that flying monkey thing, but this is really great and a very unique style too!

    Man, not only are all of your PMD pictures super cute, your team names are even cuter! The best I could come up with under pressure was Team Rocket. e_e; The only criticism I might have is that the light source in the Bouffalant picture is a little ambiguous (mostly just on the legs, there's some kind of weird optical illusion where I think the wrong leg is in front).

    By the way, really excited to see how that lovely shade of purple will play out in the Pikachu & Bulbasaur picture. :>

    But I love the washed-out, surreal feel of that picture! It is simple and elegant. You nailed it, for my tastes!

    OK so I haven't made any progress on any of the WIPs in this thread because something possessed me to try spriting Scratchet even though I have never sprited before and his stupid design is so stupidly hard to sprite. And so I have spent all my art time making these sprites.

    Here was my first attempt (too small/not facing the right direction)
    [​IMG]

    And my second attempt which I spent a million hours on and got it to this final stage
    [​IMG]
    which I am honestly quite happy with! I got him to look kinda round on the back which took a lot of persistence and trying different things over and over. And stopping and trying again a few days later with fresh eyes. But I am so happy I don't need to work on it anymore, ugh!
