View Full Version : Special: Artist Collaborative Request for a new theme

NOTICE! All places for art are taken, but sit back and enjoy the chance to see what art is thrown into this theme. ^_^


While I take a short time off working on "Rustic Filmstrip" and "The Forgotten" (I delayed much longer than this for Claire's theme, I admit) I do wish to request that any person capable of doing Pokémon art would assist me with images for a new theme. I'm a lot faster with doing new themes made on my own than I am with themes by others.

This time around, I'm looking for a dedicated artist to take time to create images based on characters from the Pokémon Rangers series. The page used in reference is here: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ds/argj/stacha/index.html, and higher resolution images are available in a certain section here: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/game/ds/ranger.html (found on the fourth link of the top, click the characters to view a larger image).

The characters I need art for are the male ranger's (whose name I don't know, he's the guy with the teal-dark blue hair)[/b] [s](taken by igtica~!), the female Ranger Hinata (the lighter-blue hair) (taken by our special community artist Forest Grovyle!), the Ringtown Leader Hayate (teal-green, long hair) (also taken by our special community artist Forest Grovyle!), the Fall City Leader Joe (blond guy with the glasses) (which just got taken by PokéSafari) and Ranger Aria (the blond [cute] girl... <3) (taken by Freenaturearts), and Samarando Leader Kamuri (orange hair) (taken by AuroPervert) and the Wintown Leader Erida (the pink-haired lady) (spotted by Cookie luvs Green). This will certainly take a while to draw (especially since I'm requesting all of them!), and I'll acknowledge that mainly because I just tried drawing one of them by hand. I'd be happy to have multiple people work on different people.

As I said, these images will be incorporated into a theme. So that I can work with them, it'd be nice if they were in 24-bit PNG so I could keep the crisp lines. The images would be great if they were around a 640 pixel by 640 pixel canvas (or scanned on a high resolution if you use a scanner).

Anyway, if anyone can help, post to express interest!

I certainly wouldn't mind contributing to this ^^ I couldn't draw all of them of course, but I would like to try drawing Ranger Hinata if nobody else minds! :) It would be cool to have a collaborative theme! :D

EDIT: Here's what I cooked up! :) I can send you the full-sized version if you like this!

Well it can't help to have another one, can it? Besides, there's two FRLG themes (though they're variations). =D

Hmmm.... Though I have to unzip the other requests from people, do we already need the images done or could they be here by the end of the month for you???

Ranger Aria is one of my faves out of the ranger series and I've drawn her 14 times by hand, so I wouldint mind computerizing one of my handy ones =3. should take about 7 days to recolor from the sketch.

Awesome though O.o I love this idea. However from many times in the past, I'm just taking a "shot" at her, if you would like to. finding another person just incase would be a good idea ^^; Contests just pop up and sometimes they hold me off =/. :jumps: Vee this is so cool X3 Community art made theme.

One thing I was wondering last week * cause of my smeargle themes* is do we have to be web editors to make things for the site like themes? Or could anyone do it o.o?

I know that seems like a silly question to bring up here ^^; just very cerios =3.

That's the rough sketch, I'm going to work on tweaking him, inking him, and then coloring him.

Well there's no rush to gather all the images, so you can take as much time as needed.

When it comes to themes, make me a banner and send it and I might make a theme out of it. But for this theme, the community members' art is being used to make a theme, so it's not all under one person's control.

Also, just so nobody in the forum steals art, PM me full-resolution art if possible.

Ooh looks fun =3 When I was looking around the site, I was planning to try with Ranger Aria but it looks like FNA is taking her. It wouldn't hurt though for me to try Erida :3 I will do both just in case.
Though I'm not sure if I can try to draw and CG 'em. It depends with school and time. ..and my laziness +brick'd+ xD
...Though, by what time do you really need those images?
I will try to praticipate ^^

I don't have a time limit set, as long as it takes would work.

FG: Sure, sending through email will be great. ^_^;

I'd like to do one..if there are any left ^^; I would have liked to have had a go at erifda, but i see she's gone so i can try the nameless ranger if he's free...only question is is style..do we have to draw them in the same pose and style as we see there? I can do it no problem, just doesn't seem very original or much of a challenge ^^;

Why would I be restricting you from having different pose attempts? That would make things very evil. ;)

You guys need a theme with Blaziken in it. I'd be willing to draw something (and not necessarily Blaziken) with my spring break coming up, but probably a pokemon because I haven't had much practice drawing humans, anime-like or realistically. I'll try to draw in a more offical-like style, but without compromising my own.=)

Edit: Need any of the Dragons drawn? Or I could do Plusle or Minun.

I've got a suggestion, y'know those beyblade thingies they've got, well, they could be the online/offline one. Eh? I'm no good at graphics, sorry.
