    Thanks! :D suicune is going to be tough ~_~ I'll try to get it up by this year because I'm slow >.> 'slower on the draw' >.>

    Thank you for the 34598734895th time! haha x)

    Haha thanks! x) Well I'm getting more used to MS Powerpoint so the only problems are how long it takes and that I need 12093723894 shapes .-. haha. MS PPT gives that clean style though! and yeah I'm updating this thread now... haha. Thanks for your compliments! :)

    :3 ! That face came about because I saw Oglemi's Eevee avy which had that :3 face so I added that :) Thanks shnen!

    One of the good things about doing smog art is that I can update along with so many other people... haha. So I don't get pushed to page 2/3 or smth. And I get a useful perma link from smogon! :D

    Featured RU Pokemon: Honchkrow

    [​IMG]


    This was NoBlue's request to draw initially. haha. I suck at drawing regular shapes .-. This was done pretty long ago >.>


    [​IMG]

    Ermmm well Honchkrow is enjoying his retirement and is in the 'golden ages' so that's where the sunset comes from >.> Also, Durant because it was a rising threat, even more than Honchkrow and eventually got banned... But it got banned after I drew this though... lol


    Featured OU RMT
    [​IMG]

    I did these 3 and the last one like last minute because no one was doing them ~_~ Exploding Life Orb for and Azelf lol

    [​IMG]
    Choice Band Dragonite... Probably my favorite piece of all the smog art :) I did this quite quickly along with Azelf though >.> Now I know what a Choice Band looks like lol.

    [​IMG]
    ChestoRest Kingdra... I wonder how do sleeping Pokemon eat their Chesto Berries lol!

    Weather in the Lower Tiers

    [​IMG]
    Drew this a day before the release ~_~ haha. Yea I terribly suck at drawing regular shapes so I got the default ones to work with >.> And I can't draw fire too :<

    I drew like 4 pics in 3 days x.x haha. Estimate around 12-16 hours taken to draw all 6 pics. But it was worth it :) Hope you like them!~

    And thanks for the MAC votes guys~~

    Love the Honchkrow! I didn't know you did art sandz >.> but great work here

    (ps: I know your request list is already piled up, but could you draw a Pikachu a Shaymin for me as well?)

    edit: skipped over the pikachu you drew! so I changed the request to shaymin if you don't mind. =P

    [​IMG]

    Water-types are so not winning Electric-types... The reason why Cleffa is crying? Becuase it got frightened by Shinx's Intimidate ;_; idk why Shinxe has Intimidate though :x Well yar Mudkip is protecting Cleffa~ or supposed to at least >.>

    Mudkip / Swampert is a very protective Pokemon iirc :d anyway, I can save the Pokemon here as individual ones if anyone wants them :x

    tl;dr not very happy with the piece but that's all I can do right now ;_; oh and Mudkip is great for nuzlockes lol!

    Hi,
    this was the first art thread i opened (i'm kinda new) and i loved it. The ditto is my favourite of them, but they're all really great.

    any chance of a Phanpy and Jirachi? same image please.

    keep it up!

    *typing on a 3DS is really hard, I'll try to use my iPad in future

    Woooow! Your artwork is both cool, funny and cute! I'm so in love with it :D
    I know you probably get tons of these requests every day, but I was wondering if you could make a Clefable for me with cool sunglasses? :D That would be so funny and cool at the same time :D

    If you can make a Groudon look cute, then you're something special.

    I didn't know that PowerPoint could be used to draw. You should totally try out Adobe Illustrator. It has a similar look, but is made for these sort of drawings.

    Now I'm curious to try out PowerPoint's drawing mechanics.

    Haha thanks xD NO PLUSHIE SOCCER!!! ahhhhhhh... No cruelty to plushies!! >.>

    Thanks!! :D Erm sure haha. though it'll take a long time before I get to it, sorry >.>

    OMG A HHS POST!!!!!! !_! Haha thanks HHS xD I mimic'd my own avy for Groudon :d I don't have Adobe Illustrator T.T And I think it needs a tablet, which I don't have, to work? >.> Thanks for the suggestion though haha!

    You can give it a try if you have A LOT of free time >.> Because it can be quite time consuming haha. It's like drawing out many many shapes and putting them together to form an image :d You'll still prefer whatever you're using now I guarantee haha.

    Hihi! Thanks :D Shellder shouldn't be too hard~ And as what I always say~~~ >.> sorry for the wait~~

    Sorry this update contains no Raikou >.>



    updating this post~~ Here is some smog art as usual!

    Didn't shade for this one because I won't be able to finish it if I did but guess the lineart turned out well :) didn't know the 3 pledges can't be used simultaneously but w/e >.>

    Playing with a Loaded Dice: How to Control Luck


    [​IMG]

    I tried using 2 colors to shade for this one too! :D I like this piece haha. On hindsight I didn't know Gengar has a tail >.> Oh and I finally know what Focus Blast looks like lol.

    How the Heck is that NU?
    [​IMG]

    Ninjask has such a complicated design @_@ It took pretty long but I was happy with the results :) It looks a bit too similar to the original art though >.> didn't dare to deviate too much in case I screw it up :d

    That Ninjask is really something. The shading is very impressive considering you're using MS Powerpoint. The detail is great, and you've done a great job with the anatomy and the pose. You've come on in leaps and bounds Sandshrewz :) The repeated silhouettes do a good job of representing the speed that it is travelling at. If you'd have slightly altered the silhouettes so that the wings were moving slightly, and if the pose was slightly more horizontal, it would've given a super impression of the speed this thing is going at and would've turned a great piece into a superb piece.

    I compliment your dedication to working in Ppt.

    Your art is so crisp, and when I read that you use power point... :O The ninjask is one of my favorites, seeing how much work goes into your stuff is amazing. As far as Illustrator goes you could give the trial version a go, and can be found on the Adobe site.

    Thanks for your dedication to this thread!! :D I love it too haha >.>

    I used the original art as reference :d Didn't dare to deviate too much from it as I was afraid I would screw up something so complicated @_@ But hopefully it wasn't exactly the same as the original art too :d Thanks man!! :DD Sounds like a good idea to me haha. Horizontal does make it seem faster! Well PPT is the only thing I can use xD

    Thanks!! :D I like your traditional art as well! :) PPT isn't really troubling after getting used to it I guess, although it likes to be irritating once in a while haha. iirc I did Ninjask while watching TV >.> haha. Sure I'll go download it soon-ish :)

    I'll see what request I can do with this MAC as well! :D Also Steamroll apparently I was searching for a dog Pokemon and well Growlithe qualifies so you have your request done! ^_^ If you want it shiny as you said last time just say so and I can recolor it :P

    edit: avy size for Steamroll or whoever wants to use it :)
