hi, so since there's an art gallery here, felt like i might as well post some of my own stuff here

these two were done randomly without purpose, just for fun really...and as such, i guess are pretty stylized..
tentacruel
chandelure
kyogre

these two, though...are the beginning of a project (of many, haha...only this one relates to pokemon though) that will end with 6, making up my most current in game team. this is something that i've wanted to do for quite some time but never found the time to...till now.
crobat
cloyster
jellicent
kingdra
chandelure
scolipede

anyway, thanks for looking...and i'll update the thread as i progress through the rest of my current project.

Love your style... especially cloyster. I like how dark and eerie it looks with the minimal lighting and the glowy eyes...

Ohhh I love the smooth colors and paint-y look you use... I particularly like the tentacruel, the red on it's orbs being a little out-of-the-lines is a nice touch. I actually like the stylized look a lot-- it gives a new kind of spin on the pokemon.

Crobat's lines are also really nice, they stand out great against the darkness. *U*d

aaa Gorgeous! The glowy red effects on Tentacruel look great especially, by far my favorite part. I love how you shaded its front claw/beak (as I don't know what it's called lmao...) as well; I think I need to go add one to my team now. XD;;

I don't really have much to critique with these - they're wonderful! Though now I'm curious if you've ever done brighter art? Most of what I see in your gallery are pieces like these five you posted so I'm wondering how often you've tried to go for something different. I'd love to see some more daytime scenes and such from you!

ah...a question i get asked very often...especially by my family haha.

i used to, i think...in traditional media i started out with very bright colors as almost all children did at one point...but when i moved onto digital it just got a lot darker. might be due to the music i was influenced by when i first started working digitally. it's hard to describe but i can't express myself as well with a bright-toned canvas...if that makes sense.

i do have some daytime pieces up in my gallery, though looking through it...i really don't have much brightness. mhm...i will try something brighter for pokemon as well when i'm done, that's for sure...haha

thanks for looking

These are beutiful. The lighting really characterizes the creatures. You can really tell that those water-types are at the bottom of the ocean.

thanks.
although, i think the water type thing is because of the color, because i'm basically doing the same general cloud/fog for BG, adjusting to lightsource. that's a cool effect you noticed, though

updated OP with chandelure...i like this so much more than my first one that i actually started to hate my first one...that was fugly :/

so happy, working on my last one right now...and after that i think i'll do a trainer portrait of myself haha

Wow, beautiful update! I lovelove how you color; it's simply breathtaking and I could stare at it all day. The flames especially are done very well, though I also love the glow of the eyes >: You've really inspired me to try my hand at darker pieces. :D Really looking forward to the trainer portrait you mentioned (and whatever else you're working on)!

ah thanks guys :')

and cirno, that's awesome...i'd love to see some of your darker pokemon when you're finished...haha i think it's funny that someone mentioned how my chandelure gave them a tim burton feel...but while i was painting chandelure the whole time i was just thinking about how tim burton the whole concept of the pokemon's art was to begin with.

dr. octo: thanks :D...always happy to get stalkers because most of mine are from like 2004-5 and no longer even using dA anymore ...what's your tag on it?

updated OP with scolipede as mentioned ...now that my team is done, i've actually went ahead and started the pokemon poster thing i apparently decided to do. i'm gonna go into detail with the trainer portrait after this i think...but i have a cliche action-style promo poster of my trainer and entire team in process. it's gonna have corn all over it haha.

edit: hopefully from my sig you can tell that i did plan the colors right off the bat...haha...they form a sort of gradiant. i purposely shifted cloyster's naturally purple color scheme to teal though because i really wanted the waters to be grouped together
