Another dragony thing, who'da thunk!

Although seriously, what happened was that I was going through old sketchbooks of mine, saw something in there, and thought "hmm what would it look like if I tried redrawing that idea". I want to finish it up more, but eh. That will have to wait.

For reference, the old picture looked like this:

From 1999 ah oh god.

Oh gosh that little dragon is so cute. I love the way you drew its wings. It's such a unique style. And I adore its little tail fluffy bits. I can imagine this cutie being super small, like pocket sized, so you can always pull it out to fetch your pencil and a piece of gum from across the room or something.

Little fetcher. :')

Why hello there Aromatisse.

Probably needs more fluff. MORE.

These are quite good and very realistic. I can tell that time and care was put into these sketches. They look like professional dragons and such that you would see in graphic novels. Thumbs up!

Deep Thoughts...
The people of the Pokémon world aren't too creative. They named Pokémon after what sound they make. If we were like them, a cow would be called a "moo".

I'm Reading...
Just finished a volume of Soul Eater, volume 14. At this point, it has become very different compared to the anime, and I kind of like it. Some of the characters have gotten a lot more fleshed out (specifically the meister team of Ox, Kilik, and Kim), and things are happening quite differently. An exciting read.

I'm Playing...
The iPod music game, Cytus. While I may not know very many of the songs, I really like its music, and the gameplay is easy to pick up yet takes quite a while to master. A friend has seen me play it and he says I make it look easy, but I am still having a fun and challenging time. Definitely worth the price.

Eeek. I just looked through all of your sketches... and I am drooling. Your art is awesome. I'm very fond of the dragons, they're gorgeous. I'd really love to see more done based off that Quilava, it's soo cute (and it's one of my favourite Pokemon).

Great job, you've made me miss traditional art a ton. Sketches are absolutely beautiful.

Ahoy~

First pickings I have this time is another thing that's a bit more than a sketch:


Once again, went looking through older stuff of mine, and this was a minor character of mine that I had totally forgotten about. This is Gentian, part nidoran and part mareep.


And then there's this which I doubt I'll ever finish because the muse just is not there anymore, but I still kind of like anyway:


Baby kangaskhan!

Oh happy day! I had hoped you'd post again someday and didn't know you even had a (somewhat) current gallery. I'm loving all these sketches, and it is always a joy to see such creative dragons. Isn't it fun to redraw old things?

It is indeed fun to redraw old stuff. X) I like doing it every so often because I'm interested in seeing just how far I've come (and also because I have idea block so badly lately so uhhh yeah I'm pretty much just fishing for ideas when I do that).

SPEAKING OF FISH (and no I didn't have this pun in mind when I first started this post):



Found in a newer sketchbook of mine, I had totally forgotten I'd drawn this. I believe it was supposed to be a dragon based off one of the goldfish my in-laws keep. Currently in the process of making an actual finished picture out of it, although it's not done yet so not showing it.

It comes with its own notes, too!

Silver Mega Ampharos.

aka what might a shiny mega ampharos look like if it was based more off the colors of the original G/S/C sprite than the pink.

(Was experimenting with a different style of coloring with this one. I kinda like.)

Also drawn mostly from memory so bunch of little errors but heeeeey

So I had a hard drive from an old computer that died back in 2011, and only just last week I was finally able to get the files off the drive. Some of it actually was artwork, so here we go!

Spoiler:

Trying to draw out what I consider "pyrite dragons" to be. Didn't nail it here, sadly.

Spoiler:

Actually older than that drive, but it's from a picture I'm sure i'll never finish, so whatever. Opal dragon (with glass horns, i had a thing for trying to paint those at the time).

Spoiler:

Togekiss/furret cross.

Spoiler:

Smeargle...not sure why I was annoyed though.

Spoiler:

DOODLES. DOODLES ALMOST EVERYWHERE.

Okay I lied half of that is squiggles BUT STILL

I was thinking of just waiting until I had more stuff completed and then just make a new thread, but then I found this in a sketchbook, had totally forgotten that I'd made it in the past few months, and now I want to show it off.



Snowman knight versus snow dragon. This one I definitely want to make into a digital painting sometime.

I am loving that one. The concept is fun, and awesome. The drawing itself is great too, and I would absolutely love to see it as a digital drawing!

Stunning, simply stunning. Your Latias and baby Latias nearly killed me. The pair are so cute, I love them. Your sketches too are inspiring, your dragon pieces conveying such awe, while your feline pieces really convey the personality and movement of the character. I'm jealous, but I know it comes with practise. Keep it up, these are really enjoyable to see!

.... :)


I started trying to get a shiny amaura in my X game, and it hasn't happened yet but apparently my desire for one is overtaking my brain so here's a quick thing of one.


Bun bunnies. Bun-nies. Don't ask. :D


I was asked to design a "fire/poison platypus bear". So I did.

I feel like I had more around here but I guess I never scanned them hmm. Oh well, they'll be for later then.

Aaaah I really like your style!! It's cute, but not overly so.
I tend to go for a more realistic style with Pokemon myself so I really enjoy it to see others' take on them.
Especially your dragons are great, in my opinion :> I also quite enjoy the lines in your sketches, they seem nicely dynamic!
