The Strumline [Fakedex Project on 4th post]

Whew, nice mag :D :D. I would read this magazine lol
Haha if only Smogon will publish this...

Popping in to say that your art is absolutely amazing!
Thanks man!

Also an attempt on some digital realism painting commissions for my mom's officemates. [And basically the reason why I can only do half of the current requests I have for last week :P] My cartoonish vibe lingers in most elements of the artwork though so i guess it's more like a caricature than realism?



I kinda like what I did here, although 3-4 hours of experimenting and basically smudging for all these pieces made my tablet look like a scratchboard lol

Magistrum, I thought why not do this the offical way.
Anyway, I would love to ask you if you could draw the following Pokémon.
If you could, in Ken-Sugimoro-esque style, one of which we can later make sprites
All information can be found in the tag below. Things you might be interested in are the height, weight and base color. If you want the body of the Griffin to be brownish, or something else, that can be changed. You get all artistic freedom you need.
Also, for your convenience, the picture for you to base them on:

howdy, I RODAN would like to request a snorlax. maybe even make him hanging out with a combee


combee is an underrated cute-mon




ps do my request first because im the best
 
#80
That Absol is fucking awesome. Thank you. On the front paw the glass effect looks really great. It wouldn't be possible for you to put that in avatar size would it?

But do Rodan's first because he's the best!
 
#81
Hello everyone! just dropping by to say that I won't be taking any further requests for now. I will be doing pkblizzard's, Mack the Knife's, RapidChipmunk's and Rodan's request these following days (Snaquaza and Present you know I'll be posting yours in our group), but after that, requests are on hiatus for now. Sorry! :(

It's because there's a comic project (maybe a 30 page oneshot-ish) that I wanna work on, and will probably be the major updates of The Strumline. Hope you stay tuned! :D

Also, since I hate posting without updates, here is another realism caricature, for my mom's boss nonetheless! Mom you should start to shut your mouth about me in your office

Edit:
GlassAbsol do you mean like this
or this
?
 
#83
Just posting to say that your artwork is AMAZING! I love your shading and coloring, and every picture you do is so beautiful. I'm glad to see your work in the Smog! I gotta say, my favorite piece is the Cloyster Shell Smash picture. It's such an amazing representation.
 
#84
your artwork is great man; luvdisc'd! those faces are so perfect ^.^
Thanks! At the start I didn't know how I'd do since my current style is pretty much cartoony X anime style, so yeah, glad the caricatures turned out okay. :3
Just posting to say that your artwork is AMAZING! I love your shading and coloring, and every picture you do is so beautiful. I'm glad to see your work in the Smog! I gotta say, my favorite piece is the Cloyster Shell Smash picture. It's such an amazing representation.
Thank you! ^_^ Yeah I really liked what I did with Cloyster. Speaking of The Smog, its 27th Issue got released today! I'm sure with this issue's focus on the metagame section (a whopping 16 articles!), competitive battlers will enjoy this issue more.

But the best thing in this issue is that I got featured in the Smeargle's Studio Updates article, written by Bummer! Awesomesauce!:naughty:

So without further ado, on with The Smog artwork update!
First in line is Join the Matrix, Mr. Porygon.

An avatar for Vader in his Interview. Idea based on LOTR's hilariously infamous outtake.

Next is Riolu and Lucario: After Training

Lucario petting his son for a job well done. I like the contrast between blue and orange here, although I think I sorta cluttered the overall lighting of this pic LOL

Next one is pretty much an experiment on flats, which I hope I did right :P
Presenting KyuGeLdeScorMory!

Inspired by Air Gear's Kogarasumaru pose. Going with the flats, I tried giving a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann pop art feel, which I think complimented the artwork well.

And last, but not least, is My neighbor Ludicolo!

Artwork inspired by the movie poster of the Studio Ghibli film "My Neighbor Totoro". I know it's pretty much rushed especially on the rain effects since the article tied with this piece was pressed for time. Still glad it came out okay, and most of The Smog staff liked it. ^_^

Whew, and that's all, folks! 3 of these artworks were inspired by other shows. Now that I think about it, I should've made the Riolucario artwork be based on Karate Kid LOL. Finally, time to finish up the request list! (/^o^)/

THREAD REVIVAL!

Holy crap I can't believe it's been 4 months since I last updated The Strumline! A lot has happened since then. My laptop broke down (with most of my files lost :mad:) then there's the 2 consecutive Smogon tragedies plus my IRL duties which held me up. To those requesting art from me, fear not--- I promise I'll get to it.

So in the meantime,

MASSIVE UPDATE!!!

I'll start with my recent work at Smog #29's article: Why LC Will Get You Laid --- presenting Happy LC Friends!

This artwork was originally inspired by the webtoon "Happy Tree Friends", but unfortunately I have to tone the brutality down to Tom & Jerry-level antics.:( Still looks cute though. :p
Next is A Birthday Present for my Beloved Girlfriend, Kathreen


I know it's far from perfect, but I tried a little softer approach compared to my earlier digital paintings, and thanks to that I think I nailed her eyes perfectly. And she loved it so much when I gave it to her


Next is my current progress on the ongoing CAP 6 Project!:D
First is Frigate Bird ver.1.0 & ValkHarpy ver.1.0!
And then, I followed up next with Frigate Bird ver.2.0 & ValkHarpy ver.2.0 to gain comments and to help me decide which design to go with.
However, since Intimidate became the primary ability, along with the musings of various commenters, it was quite obvious that Frigate Bird is the more enticing option to go with. I opted for a recolor to offset the water-type vibe that people got from it: Frigate Bird ver.2.1
Further developing the Navy theme going on with my design, I added steel platings resembling a navy coat since people have commented that "It doesn't look steel enough". So here is my current design for it: Frigate Bird ver.3.0!
This, along with Frigate Bird ver.3.0 Back View, is my current design.
I also went ahead and made the first set of supporting art for it: Frigate Bird used Bullet Punch and Taunt!
Hopefully my design gets better from here on since I want to make changes on its tailfeathers. Stay tuned for Frigate Bird 4.0!:D

Who said I was finished? :p Time for update part 2!

So I was involved with making a fangame a few months ago where I have contributed in some art for the maps. I tried making my own overworld map and it was fun! Using the BW elements does help get the job done faster, but I couldn't help but add a few elements of my own ;)

Introducing the Map of Tervari!

Yes, I was the one who christened the name Tervari which is seen as a server in Pokemon Showdown. ;) Link

The Tervari Region
Disambiguation: Terra[land, ground, earth] + Varietas[variety, diversity, difference]
Can be translated as "Diverse Land" or "Land of Different People and Places".
Tervari is a very big and diverse region, taking up two map screens (a la Kanto x Johto), however it is divided into a north sub-region and a south sub-region. (If we base on the ds emulator, each screen can show one sub-region)

North Tervari is basically composed of highlands such as a tundra area, a plateau, a mountain range and the pokemon world's highest mountain, the Mountain of Creation, where the region's Creator is said to reside. Compared to South Tervari, the north is more rural, but is rich in tradition and folklore. It features a city composed of treehouses (a la Fortree City) which has the Tree of Knowledge in its core (a humongous Library Treehouse) and a japanese-themed city that is dubbed 'The First Hamlet of Tervari' which is now the most populated area in the region(and possibly the world), taking up a whole plateau in size and housing 3(!) gyms. Three rivers flow from the northern part of North Tervari to the largest lake in the world, the Great Basin, which is rumored to have great secrets within. It is surrounded by a peculiar mountain range formation which makes it look like a literal basin. On the Southeast part is Ash Mountain, an active volcano which spews ash more often than lava. On the southwest is Rune Desert, a desert that was said to be a city that got pulverized when a powerful pokemon rampaged.

South Tervari is mostly urbanized, and is split into east and west by the Tervari Canyon, which stems from the mountains that hold the Great Basin. The long coastline of South Tervari is made up of white sandy beaches, stretching from west to east. On the sea are some islands accessible by boat. Most notable are the Red Feather Island, Yellow Feather Island and Blue Feather Island, in which 3 ancient lighthouses stand. These lighthouses are said to be pokemon-made, and as to why pokemon built them is currently unknown. Local folklore states that Legendary Pokemon sleep within each island.

Formerly in the eastern coast of South Tervari, the Pokemon League is now situated at the center of the subregion, directly at the end of the Tervari Canyon.

The left one is how it looks overall, while the right one is when adding all the map details and the borders indicate how it looks like when divided by the ds screens. Yes, it's a two-part map that goes north-south, kinda like east-west for Kanto-Johto.:) It's a map that houses 12 gyms, and along with the Elite 4 and 1 Champion means that it has all Gen V types covered (17).

Going with the trainer avatars, so far I got 2 schemes on the female trainer:


Also I got the chance to design the Fire Starter of this fangame. Introducing Crotyke, Lavatara and Komolten!

I felt kinda like a dickhead for not contributing stuff to Tervari, but now that I can actually really visualize some of the things that have sprung from your efforts, I'm seriously regretting not taking part in it more. That map is seriously amazing, holy crap. Do you think there's a chance that I could still contribute art and stuff? :p

dude you really did great on the picture of your girlfriend! Even the hair, which looks close to flat black, has depth, due to the shape and the adjacent shading of her face. There may be some parts that you're not happy with, but I think overwhelmingly that you did excellent work at capturing her mood and her face in a 3d semi-realistic form.

Thanks for that @andrew3391 !

Also this marks my 200th post in the forums!:D

Well I did a fakemon on my 100th post so why not do it again?

Introducing Harpling and Valthena!
Some of you might recognize this as my other CAP6 submission, ValkHarpy. However, it was actually a fakemon I already had in advance, which had the concept of oddball BST that exceeds 540 like Arcanine, Togekiss and Volcarona. This was originally designed to be the Tervari Champion's signature Pokemon.

Weight: 103 lbs.

Abilities: Serene Grace/ Wonder Skin/ DW Justified
Stats: 90/100/75/112/75/103 (555 BST)

Gender Ratio: 100% Female
How to evolve: LvUp to 54 (Female only, Males do not evolve)

We are actually quite stuck on artists so every help is appreciated

A CAP update (and a Birthday post for me :D)! Presenting Frigate Bird ver.4.0!
and Frigate Bird ver.4.0 Back View!
This will most likely be its final look, unless some unexpected design-altering ability enters the fray (like motor drive UGH).

So yeah this is the revamp to the seemingly turkey-ish tailfeathers. :) I also simplified the anchor beak's arrows for the convenience of spriters (in case it wins lol) :p. Go Frigate Bird you can do it!!!

lightnings cool. the glow on the black designs could be a little more streamlined. pose is nice and assertive. I like the hair, it's very billowy :P The bricks are well done too but I don't think they fit so well with the rest of the piece...not sure what it is...maybe the color. anyway the lightning is good (i just can't get into the glow effects on the body of raikou, maybe mix more with the adjacent colors? or blur more? idk. or try blurring the glow layer and setting to screen or add, that kind of worked for me once lol)

Ok time for a Smog Art update!

I got my usual quota of 4 articles again this time around

But before that, I can use HM04 Strength now!

<<<---- Yay! Thanks Birkal and Zracknel !

So, on to the artworks:

First in line is Arceus Crystal Power Makeup! (yeah I couldn't resist a Sailormoon reference here)

This is the artwork for Mega Speculation: Mega Evolutions and Their Potential Impact article. To be honest I made quick work of it since I only dealt with silhouettes...I wanted to submit Mega Raikou to this article but Deck Knight didn't speculate one so I settled with Arceus instead.

Next is Wobba Wobba Wobbafail!

For the Best New Moves of Each Generation article. It portrays the movepool behemoths Smeargle and Mew helping Wobbuffet learn TM44 but to no avail.

Next is Alakazwag!

For the A Cyclic Psychic: The Ups and Downs of Alakazam article. An attempt at digital painting that IMO turned out well, but I can't help but think I could have done something better with the spoon's lighting.

And the last but not least is Whimsy Flimsy Why Can't You See?!

For Powerful Plants: The Grass-types of RU article. Although this is a very experimental piece (I don't like doing artworks bordering on abstraction), I think it was necessary to take a semi-abstract/minimalist approach for readers to find "the five of them".

As a bonus, I'll tell which ones to find: Exeggutor, Amoonguss, Sceptile, Sawsbuck and Shiftry. Gotta find'em all! :p

except for the fact that Smeargle can't learn TMs...

In all seriousness, though, your work is seriously amazing; I love your CAP design and that plain badge was long overdue. We both started posting here around the same time, so I guess that kinda makes me feel a sense of camaraderie or something— even though you're better than me at, well, everything really. Keep being awesome :D

Here's hoping you get your plain badge soon enough too Blue Frog! :)

Okay time for a CAP update! I had submitted Frigate Bird as a Final Submission in CAP6.

And after 3 rounds of art polls...

Looks like Frigate Bird soared high enough to get a majority win result in the CAP Art Polls! Awesomesauce!

To everyone who voted for my design, I thank you all very much for helping Frigate Bird win! However, even though my win is marginally decisive, that doesn't mean the other designs pale in comparison. MOST DESIGNS IN THIS CAP ARE WORTHY TO BE IN FRIGATE BIRD'S PLACE. I respect the other artists' efforts and skills, and I am proud to have designed alongside them this time around, resulting with a showcase of CAP entries that can be regarded as some of the highest quality submissions to date in all of CAP. :heart:

So here is how he looks overall:

This Pokemon usually inflates its front to scare off other Pokemon that gets in its way. It then pounds its belly while letting out a shrill noise if the opponent doesn't back down, which Pokemon researchers observed as a last warning before it attacks the foe mercilessly.

There have been sightings of groups of this migratory Pokemon flying steadily through storms, unwavered by the intense lightning and powerful winds. Using its mass and its dangerously sharp steel beak, it swoops down in frightening speeds to pierce and capture prey that swims near the surface of the sea. It was believed that the anchors used by ships and vessels are inspired from the shape of this Pokemon's beak.
Supporting Art
Back Art, Relative Scale, and Flight (Click Thumbnails for enlarged view)

Demonstration of Belly Drum, Bullet Punch and Taunt (Click Thumbnails for enlarged view)


Here's hoping he could get a fitting name too! :toast:

THREAD REVIVAL!

Whew, it is quite unfortunate that I had to engage in another hiatus again; a super typhoon that struck my country during the final months of the previous year did a number on my house --- and along with it, quite a few precious belongings got wrecked. R.I.P. my Vaio Laptop. You will be missed, along with your fucking precious files that I cannot recover anymore...

Sob stories aside, I still have some artworks to post as a way to pick up the slack, since I recently bought a laptop again and am happy I could draw digitally once more. Here we go :)


First up is an entry to Pokémon Showdown Art Room's Voice Contest (Pokémon Retyping). The contest was for everyone who were ranked Voice(+) and below, but a few hours before the deadline of the contest, I was promoted to Room Driver(%) in the Art Room. Needless to say, this entry got disqualified as a result. Such wasted effort... what a shame :/ So without further ado, I give you Shame-min-S...


On the lighter side, Goddess Briyella requested me to give a supporting artwork for her article, Dealing With Setup in XY Little Cup. It was an artwork with a few experiments on lighting styles and a few effects so I'm not that confident about it, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
Presenting TirtouGAR!!! (And thanks to Goddess Briyella for giving me the chance to illustrate the article!!! You're awesome Briyella :D)

I also decided to go solo and spearhead my own development of a fangame, but would probably be a long-term goal. For now, I decided to take it slow and treat it as a fakedex project. So I baptized my fakedex project with this logo:

Regulus is a great word with different meanings (Bright Star, Little King, Impure Metal, Basilisk), all of which fit into the concept I envisioned in this project. The logo shows a silhouette of a lighthouse, which is a fundamental object of the storyline I'm thinking about.

Next up is a spritedex template I designed, although I am an amateur when it comes to spriting lol. The topmost hexagon is the dex number, the hexagons on the side are slots for the typing, a bit below is the nameplate, and right under it is to specify whether the Pokémon is a baby, a non-evolving mon, a basic, a middle evo, or a final evo mon.

Here is the sample of my spritedex (although it's spriteless atm lol)
WARNING: HUMONGOUS IMAGE AHEAD
So yeah, this clearly shows I plan to do a 154-fakemon dex, but in reality, this has 165 separate designs due to some forme-changes. It may also increase a bit more if I decide to design mega evos as well... Whew!

I designed some badges as well :) Overall these are very fun to do.

First row: Gem Badge, Skill Badge, Soaring Badge, Surge Badge, Fossil Badge, Sprout Badge
Second row: Toxin Badge, Grace Badge, Forlorn Badge, Blade Badge, Shed Badge, Magma Badge

Update part 2 will be posted in a bit :)
 
Well I'm glad your back and sorry about the typhoon :( I like these new fakedex things and I can already tell yours is going to be so much better than the one I have planned! Can't wait to see your new art
