    All I'll say is be careful with your effects.
    I LOVE that chandelure painting - what kind of brushes did you use for the flames?
    That's a great example of where the pokemons typing can really be used to good effect, however I think the lightning on Zapdos really lets it down. There's a lot of really bright light there, along with the pose it made it difficult to work out it was a Zapdos. But maybe thats just me being a dumbass.

    Seriously though those first two are incredible, keep it up.

    X_o it took me like 15 minutes to identify that the First Drawing was Heracross. haha.
    Such perspective. Each poke was devastatingly deadly yet beautiful. You're my hero. >_<

    Really great drawing as usual Yilx, however, I'm having a hard time figuring out what the last pic is...... Not wanting to sound rude, but sometimes in your pictures it's taken me a while to figure out what's going on, or what pokemon is in the pic.

    Good lord, that is awesome Water/Electric! (lol I don't know if you have given it some name) :p
    I'm wondering if you did draw those clouds? I can't really "draw" fog/clouds :S Any tips?

    Studying clouds is one lol. Using cloud brushes is another, but in the end knowing how clouds work by studying them is really the best way

    Love the perspective on the latest pic, you made it really dynamic and there is lots of movement in the composition :)

    Are her hips meant to be as wide as her torso is high? And... mono-nostril?

    Other than that, magnificent use of light and colours as always. Keep up the good work!

    Damn, you're right. I need to learn where I picked up this weird stylization habit and drop it.

    Tried to fix it. Also mono nostril because its cuter than looking up two of them lol

    I draw them with a tablet and it really depends for the specific picture, probably alot of hours for each piece though

    I love the way your style has evolved. Still very identifiable as the same from 3 years ago, but much more refined. It's very full of personality :)

    Those preemptive cap5 designs are awesome. I wish I had that intuitive flare for making mons that look like possible pkmn.

    Ah, what is that in reference too. D: It looks hilarious.

    Also, the image of the lady with the blade on her arm is great.
