    I'm becoming an artist now and this is my thread. You can request stuff and I'll draw it if it's pokemon related, or tournament/smogon related.

    Charizard in the Blue Skies - teal6, 2017
    [​IMG]

    This piece shows Charizard, a great pokemon, showing his incredible power in the blue skies. It is a metaphor for postmodernism, calling attention to the lack of meaning that has gripped western civilization following the atrocities of the second World War and subsequent rise of international corporatism.

    Professor Focus Blast - teal6, 2017
    [​IMG]

    This work is autobiographical, and shows a bewildered pokemon reporter asking me, teal6, what it was like to hit 8 out of 8 focus blasts and crit one. As you can see, I am giving a thumbs up, which is widely known to mean "good".

    Portrait of a Fan - teal6, 2017
    [​IMG]

    This is a character study on my friend starmaster. It shows his reaction to bro fist using thunderbolt against a Squirtle. Because of the deep nature revealed through my artwork here, I call this piece Portrait of a Fan.

    No problem.

    The Weight of the Crown - teal6, 2017
    [​IMG]

    This work depicts a Machamp who is the ruler of a country, or a dojo, or something. He is angry - his peaceful nature is at odds with the difficult decisions often asked of a ruler (indicated by his crown and cape). It is difficult to wear the crown.

    I was about to suggest some things to work on in the future, but the detailed captions to each one of them pretty much compensates every flaw on the visual side, so I'm at odds as to what to recommend here.

    Hi Bummer, thanks for visiting. If you ever feel you need any tips on your works please feel free to let me know. As a veteran I feel it's important to stoke the flames of younger, less experienced artists and would be happy to do so at any time.
