    Welcome to my underwhelming art thread! I've been debating whether it's worth putting up for awhile now, but I figure that this is probably the quickest way for me to get feedback on my pics. I enjoy drawing and I'd really like to improve (or at least get more efficient at it)... so feel free to comment and/or criticise!

    PS: Ignore the shitty thread title.

    FEATURED: Realistic woobat! No longer my best piece of work, but still cute and I'm too lazy to change it.

    Grats on making your very own art thread! Knew your art would be great, judging by your spriting abilities. :toast:
    But hey...an artist with varied styles! Likey. The art is so much more interesting to watch.
    JUST LOOK AT THAT DRIFLOON
    SQUEEEEE
    Though Vaporeon looks like he gained the Insomnia ability. He's got dark rings around the eyes o_o
    Luvdisc'd. And there should be more to come.

    Thanks Ice! I know what you mean with the vaporeon, I think I originally had it with eyes like flareon's, then changed it and messed with the shading for... some reason. Let's pretend it represents the sleep deprivation I had back in '09 when it was drawn!

    Anyway, I don't know whether I should just update these into the OP or just leave them here... or whether hide tags are needed. Better safe than sorry, I guess! Here's a couple more pics, an obese jerboa in the round animal set, and something I created in a hurry for the battle FFA thread before Yilx stepped in with his own pic. Let this be a lesson to everyone, reserving is a pretty good idea!

    second ICC's DRIFLOON SQUEEEE because that is just too cute for words omg

    I really liked the stuff you posted for the BFFA thread and the rest of these are pretty great. Eeveelutions aww. Maybe try doing the rest?

    Anyway I am quite satisfied with this thread.

    Yeah... lots of my pics have issues with uh, soulless creeper/raepface. Seems on par for any pic involving lopunny though, tbh.

    Also, thanks Kipp! I had originally planned to do the entire eeveelution set in that style... but each of the pics takes forever to get through, since I basically just use photoshop like MS paint with layers. Here's where I got to on jolteon before giving up.

    Jolteon has since been confined to a wheelchair after breaking its neck turning at that angle (open)

    [​IMG]


    I've also got another oooold pic, this or flareon was my first tablet pic (though I'm 90% sure it was flareon). While I was pretty happy with how the fur turned out, almost everything else went horribly wrong. The legs... the ears... the head sitting at a bizarre angle... the complete lack of soul in it's eyes. /sadfase

    SOULLESS JERBOA WANTS TO EAT YOUR SOUL (open)

    [​IMG]


    Finally, here's a few more in the fat pokemon/animal category. I really like making these since they're simple and tend to turn out fairly cute. Not all of them can escape the raepface, though (the togekiss I'm working on atm seems to have that issue).

    Kind of wanted to get some opinions about the last two, personally I like the cow without the hooves (even though it needs some cleaning up), but I need a plainer background (think along the lines of shirts). I was thinking a solid yellow but with a simple brown fence around the cow. Thoughts? Which cow is better?

    Well, I completed the fattest purugly around and a couple of other 'mons. Enjoy!

    Ugh, been falling off the bandwagon as far as posting goes lately (not that anyone really cares). But yeah, I've done a few more things lately (mostly non-pokemon related) that I find carries a certain level of shame for some reason I can't quite fathom (I'd understand it, maybe, if drawing pokemon felt similarly shameful).

    TL;DR: Woobat for that crazy meme and obese-style A Song of Ice and Fire heraldry.

    Thanks all. :D

    Dingram, sorry for not answering earlier... didn't want to bump the thread without pics to post (and of course I got a new desk so I can't draw for awhile until I can get some sort of extension cable for my tablet)... but anyway. I use a pre-release version of photoshop cs5, but not very effectively. It's more like ms paint with layers for me.

    Anyway, here's an old and kinda shitty pic I did alongside the panda/penguin from earlier. I'd kinda prefer to put up my shitty msn doodles but I'm guessing not many people would be interested in them.

    This skunk used to have hair like Vanilla Ice. /shudder (open)

    Woo. Bumping for great justice. Finally got some new art done. I wanted to work on making feathers/plumage look a bit more realistic and mostly failed, but /shrug. Outline shamelessly stolen from some pic off google with some editing done, rest is all me.

    You know, I did up an ambiloon before realising that you were talking about the obesemons. /fail. Oh well, I'll see what I can do. I'll post ambiloon up in the spriting thread if you wanna check that out.

    Some really good stuff you have here! I really like the style you drew Vaporeon and friends, I'm looking forward to your interpretation of the other Eeveelutions!

    On that note, I would like to see an Umbreon :3

    K, here's that fat ambipom. Simple designs ftw.

    [​IMG]

    Also NatGeo, I'll see what I can do about the umbreon... problem is that it's been years since I worked with that style and it took me forever to get anything done due to it being really bloody inefficient. I'll probably try out a smaller version and see how it goes, though.

    :O! This isn't really the best attempt at the original style, but I tried. I really can't remember how I did this stuff originally. Hopefully it looks decent, at least.
