I do sketches and line art mainly, and I wish I could do digital art like that. Alas, I'm too poor to afford a tablet. But really, your an amazing artist. I can't wait to see more of your stellar work.
Outside of the Pokemon world, my interests include:

Drawing[], and... Reading/watching a ton of Fairy Tail.

^Couldn't agree more. Nicely done! :D
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

It doesn't necessarily have to be deeper shades of colors, but more colors might actually help to bring out more form while retaining the style.

Now for this one. I like the understanding of perspective here, particularly the Jumpluffs. Though I think it should blur out the colors I do like how they are getting less detailed as they move back giving a sense of placement. The ocean does kind of lack the perspective though. I think you should try to find a way to make waves other then some lines and show that they are getting closer, as of now, there just is little perspective in that matter. The Background also does look a bit empty, I say work on the foreground first, then start drawing your Pokemon. I'm not sure of your process but a common mistake (that I use to make as well) is that people think you have to place background into the characters when it's actually place the characters into the background. You also have to realize that all the characters should be facing in a certain way to make some sort of interaction. Facing away from the canvas is a no no and will probably effect the overall impact in a bad way. You should also take into consideration that bubbles kind of reflect both light and refract certain objects, almost like little magnifying tools. Those are some things as far as my knowledge of Backgrounds go, I hope it helps out a bit.

All of these look simply amazing, you're good at this! I also like the Litwick, although I'm biased there. Litwick's a cutie to begin with. ;D

Nice job!

Wow I am impressed.


This one is freaking awesome. Do you take requests by any chance? If you do, could you sketch up a Hydreigon for me?

Awesome work definitely better than I can do when it comes to digital art. I do agree with leetcasualgamer though the background is pretty empty. I would try getting all the background figured out before drawing the character in the foreground. Either way though it looks awesone.
With my feet upon the ground I lose myself between the sounds, and open wide to suck it in; I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out; I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me. And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been. We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been. Spiral out and keep going.

Ohhhh Cirno! *V* Your work is so beautiful, I always love seeing your clean, soft and soothing colors. Pretty much everything in this gallery I absolutely adore-- but perhaps this is just a personal preference, but the diagonal lines overlay is really quite distracting on the underwater picture-- It kind of disrupts the flow of the water for me, personally!

I can't wait to see more though, thanks for sharing!
if you gave me a chance i would take it
it's a shot in the dark but i'll make it

Cirno, these are really well done and cute! I really like the Jumpluff one and the one with Mincinno.
