Please be aware that everything here is relatively old. I'll update it eventually, after I get enough images together.
[I intend not to post many drawings, but will continue updating with photos/sprites.]
*Ignore the messy spoiler tags. They've been trolling me since I posted this thread. I don't put the extra ones there; they seem to appear on their own!

Photography
(Keep in mind that I have to upload these photos through another website, which kills the quality of them.)

Some plant I found
Spoiler:

Spoiler:


Not particularly impressive, yeah.
But considering I had to walk through poison ivy to get there, it's alright. I was unable to get another angle, considering there were thorny bushes everywhere.


Fogginess
Spoiler:


Yes, fogginess is a word, according to spellcheck.


Sunset
Spoiler:


Nothing more to say.


Rocks/Ice
Spoiler:


Kind of a neat picture, in my opinion.



*Drawings may be added in the future, after I complete some that are worth posting.

Those clouds look like they could a useful stock image for graphics. Do you have any plans on using it, or is it meant to just be a piece in its own?

I love the snowy picture. Snow is beautiful. Also love the cat! I'd like to see a pic of the cat on a snowy landscape. The cat probably wouldn't like it, though. One of mine stepped out onto the snow-covered porch once and became stiff as a board. He hasn't tried touching snow since.

The other sky shot is really beautiful. It may not be great quality, but there's something about it that looks really nice.

Thank you (:

@Akiyuki Aretukasu
Thanks. I don't plan on using it for anything; perhaps I will eventually, though.
It's a different cat, but I do have a picture of a stray cat in the snow- I'll have to dig it up and post it. (:

The drawing is quite old, though- I just am too lazy to post anything decent. I'm going to take it down now and replace it later.

Here's a photo I took a couple of days ago. Kind of busy, yeah. I like it, though.

Okay, well this thread has died.
I'm just going to throw some newly finished recolors up here, though. They're my favorites out of the 12 or so sprites I've completed today.

This is all really great! Keep it up.

The only thing I would suggest is that you save the sprite images as .PNG instead of .JPG.

Yeah, I had noticed that, but wasn't sure what a better way to save it would be haha. Thanks.

You're welcome!

Out of curiosity, what kind of camera do you use?

I actually wasn't sure and had to go find the box it came in.
It's a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, apparently. [: All of the pictures up there are older, though. I probably should update that soon. Most of my recent photos are from a trip, and a lot contain blood (of a goose, to be specific), so I won't be posting them here.

Speaking of updates, here's a Vulpix drawing I finished up this morning.
It's my first completed drawing of Vulpix, though, so it certainly could be be better.

Spoiler:




Might as well throw some photography up here, as well.
Spoiler:


This is one of the stray felines I take care of. His name is Colby.


Spoiler:


Colby again. It bothers me that his ears aren't in the picture, but it still turned out relatively well, considering how much that boy moves.

Slender!
You didn't tell me you had an art thread!
-subscribed.

It's beautiful where you live. Definitely looking forward to more.
Colby looks kinda irritated with you by the way. X}

Those are some great pictures! You have an adorable cat.

That camera sounds pretty awesome! Canons are really nice. I have a Nikon myself, but I've seen Canons in action and they're pretty stellar.

@Roc
Haha, didn't think to tell you. {:
Thanks, but I must say that it only seems that way because I happened to get a decent picture of the sky. It actually is pretty boring here- just trees and corn fields. .__. And the occasional dead deer.

Yeah, he always looks irritated! X) He's very affectionate, though, despite looking ticked off. He actually tried to pet my face once- no idea why. It was pretty adorable haha.

@Cavalreaper
Thanks [:

Ah, okay. I think that might be what a friend of mine has, but I can't remember.

Edit:
Might as well post my latest recolor. I did save this one as PNG. I'm tempted to redo all of my recolors and save them properly!

Hey Slenderman. :) Nice to see you updating again.

I actually like your Vulpix a lot, to be honest. Yeah, it's sketchy, but it doesn't look like it's supposed to be anything more than a sketch so it's really fine. I love how expressive the face is. More often than not, Vulpix end up being stupid happy and cute -- which is great cause cute things are cute -- but I like how you've done something different there, and done it well, no less.

I actually can't see some of your sprites. :( I think it's just my computer but sometimes they don't load for me. Fortunately, I can see that Vaporeon and well, as you can probably see from my avatar, I love it. <3;

Anyway, keep 'em coming! I'd love to see more pics of your cat. n_n;

Thank you.
I was actually aiming to make my Vulpix different from the other ones, because it's always portrayed as being the "cute, weak, lovable Pokemon".
Haha, you aren't missing anything, not being able to see those sprites. They're all messed up because of how I was saving them. The Vaporeon is the only one I've actually saved correctly.
Glad you like it, though! {:

I like this one, it's a nice picture and you caught his eyes really well, such a cutie

Thanks, Jz {:

Here's a recolor of Moltres. Someone I know who seen the sprite while I was working on it suggested that the body be white, so I went with light gray. I really like the way it turned out, actually.

Haha thanks, it does. I hadn't even noticed that.
Quick question to other people- is the Moltres showing up? I can't see it anymore, but I'm not going to bother replacing it, so long as everyone else can see it.

I have plenty of free time today, so I'm going to spend it redoing my old sprite recolors that were saved as JPG and turned out horribly. I'll post some of them later, once they're done.

Don't save pixel art as .JPG file formats, it destroys the colour clarity and blurs the image with artefacts, which just ruins the overall quality. Save them as .PNG files, maybe .GIF if they're animated but MS Paint will also mess up the colour quality of .GIFs, so I'd advise you to use Photoshop for saving .GIFs.
