Hey nov. I like the realistic feel you've got going for your pics! Pretty cool man. As a fellow artist, I have to say, I think you have done one of the best jobs at making a pokemon look realistic. Keep it up dude!
I saw your post in the artist badge thread and didn't want to answer there, so I figured I'd bring it here: you can get an Artist badge by contributing artwork to The Smog (the webzine) or to the Art for Articles campaign!
If you'd like Smog access, head into your User CP (upper left corner) then go to Networking, Group Memberships, and apply for Smog access with the reason of intending to contribute art. I'd also shoot Fatecrashers a VM/PM asking if you can, but from what I've seen of your thread I bet you'd be more than welcome to :)
