Monthly Art Contest 3!!!

Lol sorry guys! False alarm. My Blackberry confused me. The deadline's in 5 days, so you all still have time.

Also, Wickdaggler is right. Anyone who uses more than 2 colors won't have their submission rejected, they'll just lose a few points in the judging round. But remember, every point counts! Good luck to all of you.
Is it just me or is that thing stretched vertically? It'll stand a much better chance in judging if it is rounder...

As well, I suggest adding a gradient from black to white, top left to bottom right, to highlight the lighting.

Aside from that I think you did a marvelous job capturing the textures, and lighting.

Blue and orange is only my favorite color combination ever....! :heart:

Here is Swellow holding a Flame Orb. You all know what happens next:

Too lazy to draw a background so I just used a photo and filters. If it makes you feel better, I took the photo too-- Koke Dera (moss temple) in Kyoto. I had to go through an hour or purification rights and buddhist chanting to get in the garden to get those photos though, so that should count for something! lol

Kyoto is also part of Kansai, where Johto is based off off. I saw a wild Suicune. :P

@Icepick-- bad ass. It would look cooler with a hot pink signature though. :P I'd like a flaming yellow signature on Aragorn's Swellow too.
Well, here's my final submission:

I would have liked to spend more time on it, but then again, I'm not sure there's much else I can do given my skill level. XD; Plus the deadline sort of snuck up on me. Hope you guys enjoy!
That's fantastic, Sanglunaria! I was really hoping you'd make it before the deadline, hooray!!! If I had to nitpick it, I'd say change the white to a bright yellow for the added contrast. It's alright if you don't, but I think you could pull this further if you did. Excellent job though!

Contest ends at today 11:59 GMT -4
