    Hi Smeargle's Studio! C&C is invading! After some persuasion from C&C friends, I guess it's time to make an art thread :)

    Random Intro you don't want to read (open)
    I've been drawing since I was young, mostly because it interest me. blah blah blah... Then thanks to exams and C&C work, I didn't manage to dig up some time to draw... Well I'm back! :) So now I'm drawing on MS PowerPoint, thanks to KG's guide. Doing it there gives really nice and clean lines. But it takes HOURS to get something done; so I can't draw anything complicated T.T Anyway, I draw according to my mood. So if something crappy comes out, I'm probably in a bad mood :x


    So here are all that I have right now. Newest at the top :)

    I tried to remove the 'Intimidate' factor that is seen on all Salamence... So it's kind of a different approach :P Also...

    Though I'm no expert, the art style is very catchy--simple, clean, and as cute as can be. Best of luck!

    shrewz I'm just saying but I really like your art so if you have the time could you draw me a cute Purugly? :)

    Only qualms I have are that the way quaggy's tongue overlaps the mouth outline looks odd, and something seems a bit off about mence's pose. Great stuff though!
    And where is the >( ^ )( ^ )( ^ )< magneton :( (jk the magneton looks great!)

    Thanks Terr! :) Can't say about the clean part :x Well, it's the (dis)advantage of using MS Powerpoint! :P

    Thanks shnen! :) woah, I thought Magneton was bad because I c/p'ed some parts :x Sure! Will do that when I can :) Makuhita doesn't seem too complicated!

    Blame MS Powerpoint :( Sometimes it doesn't allow me to get the position / shape I want... I have 400% zoom (the maximum) when drawing D: Different approach to Mence so idk what to do about its pose :/ Stop looking at its tail! haha :P Omg Mag with ^ eyes would freak me out >.> May I simplify Purugly somewhat? It'll take idk how many layers to do it >.>

    THANKS OMICRON! :DDDD You're one oh those who kept getting me to put this up >.> haha credits to you lol!

    Thanks! :) Magneton trapped your Scizor! :O

    Thanks! :D *Quagsire hugs NMx13* *Shame That hugs Quagsire*

    Thanks! Glad you liked Salamence :)


    Thanks for all the comments and feedbacks guys! xD really appreciate it! :3

    I actually rather enjoy the Magneton. It's simple, but stands out. The colors pop out well too because of your colored lineart and smooth shading.

    I made it for a friend of mine :)

    Woah! I'm nowhere near Fate's standard! :x Well probably due to the same lineart style? ?_? Thanks Snorlaxe! Will try to churn out more stuff once in a while if school doesn't make me super busy

    You sure like Fire-types! :P Flareon it is! And will be tying it up with CNY :)

    If I have the time, will do :)

    Thanks Volmise! I like your lineart too! I can't say anything about smooth though >.> I guess metal balls are smooth?? ?_?

    >:O Make sure you earn that back by the time I'm done >:)

    Gosh requests are piling up >.> Thanks Steamroll! Hopefully I can do it :)

    V0x!!!!!! Er... In my avy? :o

    No Prob! And thanks! :DDDD




    So... My bro hand down his old netbook to me and I went ahead to draw with it. Gosh the screen is small and I'm not really impressed with this one :x I can't get to 100% zoom without taking up the whole screen >.> I miss the big screen D: oh well here it is!

    sirn has a competitor :P (shiny makuhita for shnen) (open)

    Gosh I hope you like it! :xxx If there's some weird lines or something, do tell me. Apparently things seem different at different zoom level :d booo anyway, hope you like it shnen! :)

    Haha. Thanks NoBlue :) Does your avy need changing? :)

    Thanks! :D If I have the time to do that one, I'll give it a try :)

    Haha, thanks! :) Now where are all those GP checks?? O:<



    Anyway, an update~

    Latias &amp; Latios for Omicron (open)

    I tried putting them in the Day Care center and nothing happens :/

    X_X I've never drawn Latios before :x So it probably looks somewhat weird @.@ also, I notice all my images are severely oversized T.T

    Omi do you need me to add a background or anything??? Hope you like it :)
