    I think both CAPs are pretty good.

    On the previous page, the giant deity standing in an ocean is really epic. :D

    Hey your like my favorite artist on here(fanboy hardcore) so I thought I might throw out a request.

    A Steel-type Rotom, ie Rotom has possessed some kind of robot like how he haunts Washing Machines or Lawn Mowers.

    Either way love your work dude, keep it up :)

    I love the expression on her face, it's very creepy.
    What's your inspiration for these girls, Touhou?

    EDIT: the CAP2 entry :0

    I draw alot of girls, which one lol

    This one's my CAP2 entry, inspiration for her came from alot of mediums. This song, this character and this object were the main inspirations for her in general. And the ever popular armpit shrine maiden herself of course.

    Man I love your stuff. Just friggin amazing. I was wondering, if you aren't too busy, may I request a Vanilluxe, possibly using Blizzard on a Garchomp and freezing it? I would really appreciate this, but I understand that you might not be able to do it. Thanks :)

    I don't care which game you referenced.
    It involves shrine maidens and Touhou.
    You got my vote Yilx, no contest!

    talking about the art poll in #cap today...

    <~DougJustDoug> And Yilx has a very big following of admirers from his thread in Smeargle's Studio.
    <~DougJustDoug> He could draw a black box and make the top five, probably.
    <~DougJustDoug> Because that black box would be the most amazing black box you've ever seen

    I think you should draw a black box. :)

    ...In some dramatic fashion, maybe a sableye is hidden in it.

    You are a very talented person and I love every one of your drawings in this thread.

    Your drawing style delivers as usual, but I'm not too fond of that green color (and blue dot). I get that you tried to accomplish a strong contrast, but maybe a color which is relatred to red would work better. Like the yellow in his eye, for example.

    The pixelated font down below is also a nice touch, but I have a hunch that it'd be better off without that outer glow (since the actual image doesn't have anything of that sort).

    Bummer pretty much hit the nail on the head there. I do like the extra edginess of the shading though!

    I thought it was pretty good. D: It seems better than usual, I didn't question the green, lol. I thought green sort of does work with red? In that their opposites on the color wheel.

    Are you still taking requests? I'd love to see a picture of Milotic using Recover, Dragon Tail, or Scald, or activating Marvel Scale :)

    I love that Flygon! Esca is neat and your changes to it really improved it, but damn, that Flygon! *_* The way you do shadows and make Flygon look like it's in motion is very impressive.

    Nice Rin art too, even though I don't know that song~

    how about changing the yellow to white? just a thought~
