Hi everyone!! *Waves*
I guess I'll show you my latest art =3 I don't draw much on paper, because then i don't have all the tools a virtual canvas has..-- UNDO~ REDO! Watercolor tool, besier line and all that =3
Anyway, this first one got an Archive on the oekaki =D(It's also in my sig XD)
Lugia under the mysterious sea (http://draw.pokecommunity.com/pictures/332.png) (Crummy name, i know ><)
Umm... another one... let me see...
I don't really like the anotomy on this one, but i like the pose and Lineart ^____^;
Vaporeon (http://draw.pokecommunity.com/pictures/289.png)
And, once i find more I'll edit this =3
--Doodles--
With this Eevee (http://draw.pokecommunity.com/pictures/495.png), i was trying out a different way of using Halftones... didn't rearlly work out ><' this one was a fairly quick doodle =D
I drew this Mew (http://draw.pokecommunity.com/pictures/506.png) blue because pink is so boring... XD; anyway, I don't like the background or rainbow on this, but i like how i tapered the lines ^-^ done quickly because i had to go to school XD;

Hey there DS! ^^ Nice art you have here! :D The Lugia is really beautiful, and I love the use of the water relfection on its wing, as well as the glowing eyes that make it look really mysterious! Did you get inspiration from the Lugia pic that was drawn at the PokMasters Oekaki once? ^^ That was an awesome pic!

I also love the Vaporeon, it's so adorable!! You do very good oekakis - keep on drawing! And I'm sure that you will get into the intermediate S-R Oekaki! ;) I've seen some of the stuff there and I definitely think you're capable!

--FG :)

That stuff really looks awesome! ^_^ I have no talent on oekakis whatsoever, but you have really good effects, like the Lugia being "frosted" through water.

--FG :) Thanks ForestGrovyle! =D I didn't think I could get a comment from you that GOOD XD;

Jedi Amara: I've been practicing for about six months =3 at first i was HORRIBLE ><' Now I'm okay =D I keep telling my pair to draw, that's the only way he can get better, but he never listens to me XD;
Mewtwoa_150: thanks! =3 I like that one, too.

Oooo those are very pretty. I adore the lugia. No wonder you've used it everywhere. I love the way you use the light as definition on one side and darkness on the other. I adore the way you've made the highlights give the underwater effect. that's so very clever. You've picked up on the definition that the more concentrated water in ripples and the fact that this means they create more concentrated light...it's just so pretty.

Oo you've caught my love of eevee and it's evolutions. The vaporeon is so sweet. I love how you've done the ridge on its back. The colours are so nice and bold with a subtle merge. Same with the cute eevee. I like it's expression. Fab art, cant wait to see more.

Ooh, I think I found the Lugia pic you used as reference. ^_^ I like yours a lot, though. XD And the Vaporeon reminds me a bit of the ones you get on those graphics sites.

I've seen that lugia picture somewhere before, and I think FG has too... and that version I saw was definetly drawn by someone else. The whole composition and colouring is pretty similar.
I don't mean to be offensive, but you really shouldn't use other people's art as a reference - at least, not without giving them some credit.

However, I ADORE the vaporeon. Especially the lineart and the cheeky expression. I like it much more than the lugia picture.

If someone comments me on it i would tell them that i used another pic as a reference ^-^ actually, i noticed that on Community doodle, Orion's trainer card's background is the same as the reference ^-^

That's fair, but I recognise the pic from pokemon itself. It's not like you can ask them if you can draw it (unless your a mulitnational company :p). Besides there are very few artists that draw pokemon in their own stance let alone composition (i try very hard to draw my pics from scratch using only features as a reference). Yet this is very hard to do. I agree if a pic is very similar and you can ask the artist, you should do out of respect (but this does happen very little). But if you know they are using an exsisting well-known reference (like the Lugia) is their any point? Besides if there was any problem with this I'm sure FG would have mentioned it in her post, but she seems happy to enjoy DS' work.

Anyways back to the subject...any more oekaki's your hiding from us DS? I'd love to see more eevee evolutions *coughespeon* ^-^

This is a link to the picture I mean. Drawn on PMO about... two, three years ago? I remember when Renatwo drew this... She was quite proud of it.
I used to be a good friend of Rena's (we haven't spoken for years, though) so I guess I'm naturally defensive of her wonderfull art ^^;

I don't mean to be offensive, DS - I mean, you're a great artist, your other pictures prove that!

igtica: I can do that, I'll draw it just for you!!
I'm back with some new art!

Shiny umbreon (http://oekaki.nightmarevalley.com/pictures/763.png): Really proud of this =3 Time: 296 minutes exactly ;) And the reference pic... *Goes to find* http://pokeden.com/pwo/advanced/pictures/112.png I wub that picture! I hope some day I can draw like that ^^
Second archive- Fursona (http://oekaki.nightmarevalley.com/pictures/682.png):I was so happy when I saw the word (Archived) Under this! ^^ I am SERIOUSLY proud of this one. Time:254 minutes :3
Art trade (http://oekaki.nightmarevalley.com/pictures/660.png): Heheh, took meh 147 minutes ^^ the tail has been mirrorified =O
--Random doodles--
These pictures won't be as good as those two ^^
Another shiny umbreon (http://oekaki.nightmarevalley.com/pictures/531.png):Heheh, done in 80 minutes ^^ No comment.
Oddish (http://draw.pokecommunity.com/pictures/975.png): I was seeing if I could get Suta-Raito's and NV's style down =D Not best quality, though =/ I'm not that fond of it, either, I just like the shading, that's what I was working on, anyways =D
Okies, that's all for now!
=D

Yay! ^^ More art from you!
I really like the second one! :) I can see why it got archived - the pose is very nice, and the background is a cool idea! I think the back looks a bit flat, and the back legs might be a bit too bent forward, if that makes sense - but anatomy is one of the hardest things to get right, so I know that it'll only get better!

I also love the pose of the first shiny Umbreon! The way it's sitting on its haunches looks great! ^^ Nice use of tones, too! The shading looks a little confused - I don't think there would be any light falling between the legs, for example - but I really love your pictures, DS! *hugs!*

Keep up the good work - you're awesome! ;)

It's all practice =D
Yeah, the BG is pretty much flat and the anotomy is really hard ._.
Thanks for the great comment =3
The shiny umbreon: Yesh, the shading got messed up ^-^

Recherché :p

I truly do admire your Lugia picture, which in my oppinion is the best one by far.

However, you do not to work on your anatomy and facial proportions. Yet, as Forest Grovyle has said, anatomy is one of the hardest things to get right. The easiest way to improve would be to practice drawing realistic four-legged creatures, such as canines (since that's what you appear to favor in art). You may also want to work on aligning the nose, eyes, mouth, and ears of your creations; vaporeon's left eye looks as though its being squashed and poor mew has been pillaging the pantry for brownies, I think that its diet time ;D You ought to try to replicate the actual anime pictures to keep them in your artistic anamnesis for reference.

Again I say, Recherché work you have here, just keep practicing and never lose your sense of creativity. After all, what's an artist without indivuality and virtuosity.

Thank you both so much!!
I am always practicing; and crits just help me even more! :D
Thank yee all, I appriciate everything *Hugs* I totally and 100% agree with FG, Anotomy is really hard to get down! ^-^
But, that's just one of the reasons I'm allowing crits and practicing! ^_^

Aww! The fursona picture is too cute! ^^ The only critisism I can think of that FG didn't point out already is that the wrist joint on the front leg might be more pronounced- but that might go against the style. ^^()

So pretty! Your improving so much already with each pic! As if they weren't great to begin with ^-^ i really like the characters you create in your pics. You really get a feeling that you can imagine them doing things in ways their own little characters affects them ^-^ It's so nice to see. I agree with your comment and FG! Atonomy is really hard! It's so hard to not get a twisted limb, or one that just looks wrong. Your doing really well with it.

Ooooo did you say you would *big sparkly eye* really really?
