I like almost every one of them. Only one I dislike is the Typhlosion (my favorite Pokémon). It doesn't look like Typhlosion to me.
Pidgeot and Gyarados are best of these. I don't like the gem on Gyarados head as it looks too bright.

I hope I can do something like this someday. I have Photoshop CS2 but I haven't learned anything (maybe something little but still...) and I hope I'll understand every ways to draw with it.
Thank you! ^^ And Typhlosion probably looks different because I drew her in my own style. I like to add a bit of personal artistic design to my drawings, even Pokémon drawings. Also, I don't quite get what you mean when you say Gyarados' Life Orb is too bright... I rather like the contrast, to be honest.

----

Anyway, here's something completely different- as opposed to being new, digital, and Pokémon-related; it's old, traditional, and Final Fantasy-related. XD But I figured I'd put it up simply because it's different.



I don't really remember the date when I drew this, but oh well. I think it was between a year and two years ago. I still like it, though.

I think I was home sick when I did this. xD The original is pretty big, though. It's 10x15 or something like that, and it's hanging framed on my wall. It won an award for something at an art show a couple summers ago.

But anyway, this is Genesis from Final Fantasy VII. I like those games, even though I've never played them. xD

Ahhh, some of these pictures inspire me to draw more! Gosh, I wish I was that good at digitally coloring. Unfortunately I don't have the motivation anymore to do artsy stuff. I only get into it... every now and then. Once in a blue moon. I should really get back into it. ;___; And I should draw Minun and Plusle!! <3 ... But yeah, these pics are really nice!

Wow, thank you! ^^ Yeah, drawing is fun, if you have the free time and inspiration, I say go for it~! =D

Anyway, here's a simple drawing I did of one of my dragon characters that I randomly turned into a Raichu. xD Her name is Wraith, and I might post pictures of her in her dragon form later.



But yeah, I had fun with the effects in this. I found some bubble brushes that I like, and otherwise just played around with lighting/effects/texture for a couple hours with this one. Wraith-chu herself didn't take very long to draw.

Here's something I drew for one of my friends for his birthday... he's been going through some really hard times lately, so I drew a quick picture of his Pokésona.



Nothing special, I mainly focused on Zakchu himself and the lightning effects rather than the background. The background ish plaiiiiiiin xD

I use a tablet for my outlines and shading, yes. It's an old thing (5 years old), but somehow still works fine. xD

Thanks for all the comments, guys, and I apologize for not posting anything lately. I don't have any completed new stuff to show you guys, but here's a quick preview of what I'm working on-

I plan on it, don't worry. ^^ Glad you like my stuff!

Anyway, here's my latest piece! I've been working on this thing on and off for the past couple weeks. I originally got the idea in my head over a month ago, and finally got around to finishing it. xD



Basically, it's my team from HeartGold facing a Shiny Ho-Oh above the Tin Tower/Ecruteak City area. Why a shiny Ho-Oh? Because I spent a week SR'ing for one. XD (Finally got it, I might add. It's pwnsome. c: )

So yeah, here's what's generally going on in the picture-

-Jenna (me, the trainer) is riding atop Lani, her Pidgeot, along with her Umbreon, Lucine.
-Pentavius the Alakazam and Topaz the Typhlosion are riding atop Mazyuun the Red Gyarados (Mazyuun is being held up by Pentavius' psychic energy, he's not actually flying. xD), and Mazyuun is firing a Dragon Rage attack at Ho-Oh.
-Raijin the Ampharos is leaping off of Mazyuun's head, ready to hit Ho-Oh with a Thunderpunch.
-Ho-Oh has a sort of shield up (Safeguard on steriods? idk) to deflect attacks while it powers up a Sacred Fire attack.

...yeah, planning this was hella fun. It might not have come out perfect, but hey, it's still awesome in my book.

Enjoy!

I especially love your drawing of the Red Gyarados, Ampharos, and the epic thundering Pikachu , the Shiny Ho-Ho battle drawing was just EPIC, the feathers were so colorful, and the aura surrounding Ho-Ho.

I use an airbrushing effect brush in Photoshop to do the shading. I'm glad you like it! ^^

Anyway, here's a quick overdue art trade of someone's Lucario character as a Riolu in a lab where he was born.



I heavily referenced my 'Birth of Wraichu' drawing that I did for this, as you can probably tell. xD I really do like how it came out, though. The background is a mix of steel-plating texture and a supercomputer stock image I found on a stock website.

It depends on the piece. Something like the Riolu in the cloning tank would be about an hour an a half, if that. Something like the vs. Ho-Oh piece would be between 2 and a half and 3 hours. ^^

These are amazing!! I love the shiny Ho-oh battle! But, the Riolu in the tank... The tank faces forwards when everything else is at an angle. Now, prove me wrong, but the picture makes it look like it should go along with the flow and face the same direction, not at the viewer.



If it's ok with you, I would like to use this on my PC. Yes, it really is that great!

I'm so extremely jealous of your talent I don't really know what to say. I really want to be able to draw but I have no talent at all; I could only ever dream of being as good as you. You truly are amazing and your skill will only get better since you seem to draw so often.

>.>

<.<

If I could steal your abilities I totally would ;p

Omega has Keen Eye ability.
Omega notices Starry!
Omega uses Flatter!
It's super effective! Starry is confused!
Omega uses Copycat! Omega hurts itself in the process!
Omega uses Snatch! It doesn't effect Starry...

This is your and my encounter over your art abilities. Truly phenomenal. I seriously wish I had your abilities. Alas, I can only do stick figures but your art has inspired me to try. :D
