Gonna toss up a few more from the Pokemon Challenge. None of them aren't as great as Quilava but I can still see how much I've grown with just these sketches. Especially looking back at my Butterfree (which I am not posting here) the first day of this challenge.

Flying
Spoiler:

Totally cheated and I don't care. ♥

Ghost
Spoiler:

Totally went for a different style here. I like how it came out.

Dragon
Spoiler:

Time for the sketchy ones yep.

Ice
Spoiler:

ahaha

Normal
Spoiler:

Today's.

If you look at the calender I linked for the thing above you'll noticed that I skipped Grass. I didn't like how my Grass one came out so I'm not putting it here as an individual piece. Maybe you guys will see it if I do some sort of jumbo thing at the end with all the pieces. xD

Oh gosh I love this sketchy style you're doing. It feels so loose and comfortable, and yet you have really precise control over the direction and it just feels good to look at. I honestly can't point out one favorite of mine. The Flygon and Furret are super cute (well, the Flygon isn't cute so much as it is neutral, and by that I mean it just feels like Flygon in its purest form, you know?), but that Litwick is so clean looking. I especially love the little yellow touches you used to highlight it. I think it makes the whole thing look much more organic. I can easily see someone using that as an avatar/signature. I suggest you watermark it somehow with your pen name, just in case!

Anyway, this work is just fabulous. <3 I can't wait to see what you come up with for the Grass type. I'm sure you'll be able to come up with something awesome. Still the cutest gallery on PC. n_n

Umm wow. Your lighting/shading is spot on, tara. Good job on those two! Crobat looks great. I can only ever draw it like how it looks from the front. Drawing it while it is flying around freely takes some good knowledge of perspectives and how it affects the bodies of the characters involved in the drawing. So yeah, awesome job on zat.

Backgrounds leave something to be desired, doe. You can always use your graphics knowledge to spice it up in case you're feeling lazy drawing it all up, haha.

hahaha yeah. Didn't even bother with backgrounds (a lot of people for the challenge weren't tbh) because I didn't even want to try and spend time doing such a thing when it's the Pokemon that is part of the challenge not the background. But either way my backgrounds do need work (looking at my latest two pieces which were gifts so not displaying them here) and I'll work on them when more required, y'know.

But thanks for the compliments! I'm going to say though that while I'm getting used to shading/lighting it's always in one direction in almost every one of my pieces. So what I need to probably work on next in that area is learning how to shade/light from more than just that one direction.

Small update since I haven't done so in a while. Everything this time around are just icons but I did color about four of em.

Tales of the Abyss


Kingdom Hearts


The Roxas ones are the ones I colored. For these four I don't really want anyone else using 'em but if someone does please ask first and if I say yes you better credit or else I will hunt you down. ♥

Aaaaart.

Both based off of an AU (Alternate Universe) Post-Apocalypse Pokemon Panfandom Roleplay on Dreamwidth. Wow that's long haha. Anyways Roxas and Sora and how they are in that universe at this point in time.

Roxas and his Eevee Sora
Spoiler:


Sora and his Shinx Simba
Spoiler:


And three more colored icons. Same thing as the four above.


If it wasn't obvious already I'm kind of on a Kingdom Hearts kick oops.

I love your art!

I'm not a professional artist or someone who really knows about art so I can't make a comment about your linework or any of that but I really really love your character's expressions. The Eevee and Sylveon mouths are the cutest thing

Wow babe, you make such phenomenally cute art. The Sandile's lineart, texture, and expression are great! Other favorite works on this page are the Litwick, Articuno, and Klefki. Sylveon there is looking rather thin, but I do love the color palette and again, your lineart. <3

Yeah Sylveon did turn out thin that time. Happens when you try out a different style I suppose! But I'm glad that my other attempts at trying something different (Litwick and Sandile) are among favorites!

Also this isn't exactly an update but it's like I just had an epiphany (although I should have realized this long ago lbr) that if you go with a background color that contrasts the foreground colors you get a much better result!



oh and there is this one i guess not as happy with it though i mean there is like a big blank space to the right i could fill with text or something but meh. maybe i'll redo it sometime. maybe.

I actually like both of the above icons, but your contrasting background definitely lends better to the image. I mean, it's not like mandatory that you should always use contrasting colors, but in that case it really makes that yellow pop and gives a way richer tone to the browns/reds/skin. I'd like to see more of what you can do with that epiphany of yours, cause the results so far are amazing! n_n

Yeah, I like the first one in its own but but the second one overall feels like a better composition with the colors and all? just my take and all!

Spoiler:

SCREAM. CUTE.



ADORABLE. <3 I love your drawing skills and am jealous of your lines and color ability. Stunning.

Your Ash & team drawing is also super adorable. Props for Froakie being impossibly more d'aww than usual.

Can I just say that the outstretched hand you did there is absolutely perfect and I envy your perspective skills?
The way his fingers fold and hold up towards me are done so skillfully... wow.

The folded hand along the hip is actually one of my favorite postures to draw, and I can say with great confidence that you did it magnificently.
Your proportions, perspective, and anatomy within his arms and hands are top-notch!

Keep up the great work!

Hands are a piece of work but I think I'm slowly getting the hang of them. Slowly.

Another piece yee. Coloring is more simplistic in this one but it's because the piece was bigger yep.

It's Movie Time!

Again there is a reason for the wings but too lazy to explain why haha.

Drew some other things before this (one that I was quite proud of) but I'm too lazy to fetch them.

Besides I think this one is my favorite anyways.

Ash vs Cilan

Did you seriously draw that?

Because, and I'm not taking this lightly nor being too serious here, but stating as a fact; this is some of the best damn work you've posted here. I'm genuinely surprised. My only critique is that you should try to make the Pokeballs more round, but that's like the most lame comment ever haha. I am just beside myself.. this is absolutely stunning. You really should be proud of yourself.

<3

Wow Tara, that's actually a really great piece you've drawn there! I could have easily mistaken it for an actual scene from the anime with the amount of detail you put into the drawing there. However, the one thing I noticed is that I think perhaps maybe both Ash and Cilan could have looked a little more serious in their face, such as maybe having their eyebrows raised down lower and at a steeper angle, and possibly less of a smile.. unless you wanted them to be portrayed that way as more of a "fun" battle.

Other than that, I also do like how the buttons on the Poké Balls themselves stick out to create a 3D-looking effect.

Please do keep up the great work; I've always enjoyed browsing through your gallery and you have such amazing talent.

Definitely more as a fun battle than a serious battle because this is Cilan and Ash we're talking about here hahaha. Also in the actual XY ones Ash's expression in all of them is just about the same and it's Pikachu with the serious expression in the ones where he's the first/primary Pokemon Ash is using. But again it's meant to be more fun than serious so Pikachu has the same expression as Ash instead.

But yes! I totally agree that the Pokeballs need to be more round (they're my least favorite part) but other than that I really am very proud of this piece myself and still find myself smiling whenever I see it. I'm glad others think the same ♥

It's funny because I look at things i drew earlier this month and then my later pieces from the end of the month (like the one above) and go 'damn i've improved'. I really am quite proud of myself. uwu
