View Full Version : =OMG! Light Azumarill's Art Thread!=

October 25th, 2005, 4:19 PM
Okay, I finally got around to putting up an art thread. ^-^

I know I don't post much in this forum, but I'm gonna try to change that because I really love all of your guys' talent! I swear there are so many great artists on the Internet. I feel honored to have known you all!! Anyway, enough of that, and onto the art! Right now, all I'm gonna have up is computer art that I drew and then colored w/Adobe Photoshop, and Oekaki pics. Hopefully sometime soon I'll have some free time to scan other drawings that aren't computer altered. ^-^ But for now, just enjoy this:

These are pics I did a long while back (a couple years ago) for various people on The PokeMasters.net:

A Banette and Umbreon, and a Houndizard

Well, that's them so far! It really looks like a lot. I really should start a Deviantart account. ^-^; Anyway, comments would be nice, anything else is welcome too.

Awesome stuff, Light Azumarill! ^_^ I have always admired your art! If you decide to start a DA account, you'll have to let me know so I can watch you! ;) I love your use of colour in these pictures - it's very impressive! My faves have to be the Corsola and the Azurill in the rain.

You have a lot of talent, and I know you will go far! Keep it up! ^_^


October 25th, 2005, 7:25 PM
aww those r adorable!! i love them!

October 25th, 2005, 7:30 PM
They're awesome, and really cute ^^

October 26th, 2005, 1:18 AM
Aww...I would love to comment on them all, but there are just to many XD

So in short I will just have to say that they are all amazing, Azu! I have allways been a fan of your work ever since I saw them on the Oekaki...I think the one with Psyduck and Pichu was the first I ever saw of your work...I didn't much pay attention to Oekaki for a while XD

Your style is so unique and there is something that I just love about it. You have a great sense of humour as well if I might say, I'm mostly refering to the Smeargle angering an Exploud one there XD

My favourite would ahev to be the Houndizard one, mainly because it's half of my favourite Pokemon XD

Anyways, keep up the good work and I hope to see more of your great art work soon ^_^

Fantastic is the best I can say, but it barely scratches the surface. AWESOME!!! WOOO!!! All of em! AWESOME!!!

October 26th, 2005, 5:01 AM
Let me say this, I can't draw to save my bloody life!!! BUT I do have a taste for art, and I can be a critic. And I love them, there so colorful and alive XD well this is Clow the guy who really wishes he could draw lol.

October 26th, 2005, 5:34 AM
Very cute, I love the mana one, and that one with Umbreon, youre very talented, keep up the great work! Im now a fan of youres truely ^^

* huggles Takoto and guilmon * aww there the cutest ones ^^

October 26th, 2005, 6:21 AM
All of your art is beautiful. And I recognize some of those oekaki from our oekaki. I think I even commented on one.
I should make my own art thread. Hope to see more.
And I can see why you won the art contest.

October 26th, 2005, 6:27 AM
Those are awesome! and twinkle thinks the growlithe is cool!

October 26th, 2005, 9:28 AM
Fwee! XD Thanks for the wonderful comments guys! There has always been a special place in my heart for art, even though I'm pursuing the world of Biology (an odd combination, ne?).

... why do people on the Internet say "ne?" at the end of a sentence anyway? It is supposed to be the Japanese particle "ne" which translates to "isn't it?"? Hm... I've just always wondered that. ^-^

Anyway, I really think my Oekakis are some of my best work! Oddly enough, I only joined my first one (the one here) a few months ago! Though, I've noticed that my artistc abilities progress in stops and go's. I get in these bouts of doing a ton of drawing, and I improve a ton, and then I slow down and stop improving for a while until the next time I go on a drawing binge again. I am most definitely a firm believer in practice=growth in skill. Through practice, you start to notice mistakes you make a lot easier too. Okay yeah... there I go, talking forever about stuff... 9_9

Anyway, thought I'd respond to you all separately, because I'm just like that. =P

FG: Aww, thanks! You're making me blush you know. ^-^ Oh, and I shall let you know when I decide to make an account. And about colors; I swear I am in love with color. Light, color, really I'm in love with the whole darn electromagnetic spectrum. I was the kid in Jr. High that never matched and wore every color imaginable to clothing. ^-^

..:whitewolf:..: Thanks! Adorable and cute is what I do. ^^; It's a challenge for me not to.

jc_rcw: Thanks to you too! Again, cute things come naturally to me, and I like them, so well, there they are!

~*Strider*~: Ah, the Houndizard. I remember the person I drew it for asked me to combine a Charizard and a Houndour because they had asked every artist to do the same and liked to see the different ways they came out. I'm really proud of mine, I liked it and thought that the two pokemon worked nicely together. Usually the people who requested things just told me what pokemon they wanted in it so yeah, the red paint all over was my idea. ^^ I had this other one of a lineup of all the Eeveelutions looking innocent with halos over their heads, but with obvious impish things about them (ie. Flareon with bird feathers coming out its mouth, one tracking mud, etc.), but I can't find it anymore. Pity too, it was really cute. *looks at response* Eek! I wrote a lot again! Oh, and thank you for you comments. ^^

Cybex: Aw, thankies. ^-^ I hope to impress you in the future too. I was thinking of drawing some more Digimon stuff... and I still have stuff to scan that's hand drawn. Hee hee. *tackle huggles* XD

Clow: You remind me of my Mom (who grew up in a big family of really good artists the poor thing!). She can do little houses with smoke coming out, Fred Flinstone and Charlie Brown, but not much else. ^^ Though, she can love art, and appreciate the efforts of others. I really think that if she devoted time to it, she could be really good. But thank you for your comments Clow! I hope that someday you get better than you think you can. ^^

seto_girl: Heh, yeah, Mana and Yugi are two of the few people I can draw from Yugioh!. ^^;; I've also sketched Kaiba and Joey before too, but I'd rather not talk about how Kaiba came out and Joey's hair never looks as puffy as it should. >.< I wanna learn how to draw Ra, but it's so complicated, every time I think about doing it I suddenly think of something else I need to do instead. ^-^ Takato and Guilmon, they're one of my favorite pairs of tamers/digimon in the whole series. They're just so cute together I had to draw them. Oh yes, and thank you for your comments.

Crystal Clair: Yeah, I think you have commented on one of mine. The Charmander one? Maybe another.... I really like your drawings; you should do an art thread! They're really not as hard as they seem. ^^ Plus, you get to show off. Not to mention, everyone's so nice here, there's really no fear of being made fun of or put down. Oh, and thanks for the comments!

Agent9: Hi Agent9! Ah, more people who've adopted pokemon from me. ^^ I should put a few of them up there too (thought to put them all up there would be too many! XD). My Growlithe was hard for me; I don't draw Growlithe that well, for some reason the head and eye position always screws me up. ^^; It's the same with Pidgey too. Anyway, thanks for the comments, and you too Twinkle *pats on head*.

Okay yeah... my answers kept getting longer and longer. o.o I talk/type too much. What's my Mom call it again? Oh yes; diarrhea of the mouth. XD

All I have to say is ADORABLE!!!!! *huggles all of the paintings* Your artwork is fantastic! I have an addiction to art also, I'm like you somewhat. I am an artist at heart and right now I'm working on my first PaintBBS on here, probably the best I've done! But I love your drawings, they are fantastic. I would love to see a Dragonair.

October 26th, 2005, 8:35 PM
Those are nice pictures. I especially like the Smeargle picture.

October 27th, 2005, 2:58 AM
I envy you! O_O You rock at lineart/colouring your pictures. You also draw Pokémon very very nicely. The first six and the Satoshi Oekaki are my favorite of them all. The Blue Eyes White Dragon also rocks. :D

*is tackle hugged* x.x XD!

You don't have to impress me one bit. you do well right as you are. ^^

You HAVE to love the Plusle. It's just too cute. :3

Anyway, your art is the ULTIMATE pwn. *worships*

October 30th, 2005, 6:00 AM
ZephyrPlusle: Thanks! Plusle's adorable yes, it's one of my favorite pokemon too. ^^

Well, made a new picture, and if you haven't already guessed what it is by the change in both my avatar and my signature, it's this one:

http://img420.imageshack.us/img420/9922/macandsticky2li.th.jpg (http://img420.imageshack.us/my.php?image=macandsticky2li.jpg)

I drew it yesterday right after my family got home from putting our dog, Mac, to sleep. Wow, talk about an emotional roller coaster of a day... we all were going to stand in the room with him while they injected him, but my Mom and brother (as the family predicted, it always seems that way) couldn't take it and had to leave. So my Dad and I stayed and pet Mac as he slowly fell into a calm sleep that never ends. It was really surreal, and very sad. It was strange though, we got Mac from the Humane Society here, and that's the place we took him to be put to sleep. His life as we knew it began and ended at the same place.

Sticky Bird, the parakeet in the drawing, was another pet we had to put to sleep when I was about 12 I believe. He was my first pet besides pet goldfish, we had him for about 3 years, very impressionable years for me too. He was an awesome bird; he could say his name, though it sometimes morphed into "Wicky Bir" or "Wicky Wicky Wicky", he stole tastes of our food out of our spoons/forks, and enjoyed drinking water from the faucet. He once flew into our toilet, and into our Chirstmas Tree, and into a bag of chips by accident. He loved to sit on people's glasses, shoulders, heads, and even once on my uncle's nose. ^^

So yeah, my newest piccy. Enjoy!

October 30th, 2005, 6:10 AM
Aww *Hugs* ;o;

I know what it's like to loose a pet...okay most of them were goldfish, but still...they were still pets. But I did loose a dog when I was about nine or ten and he was awesome, I loved him so much and he died at a good age, fair play to him, thirteen. Well I was in bed when he died and I woke up in the middle of the night and waited for my mom and dad to get home, they told me then that he had died and they had been Burying him up my nan's yard ;-;

But back to the drawing. I was looking at it a moment ago as your avatar and I have to say it is very good (and Kawaii at the same time). Though it did take me some time to make out the beak of the bird XD

But another great piece, I adore the different colours you have used to make up Mac's fur and Sticky's feathers. Amazing shadding as allways ^_-

Keep up the good work Azu!

October 30th, 2005, 4:13 PM
Well, Light_Azumarill, I have to say.... THESE ARE AWESOME!!! Okay, enough spazzing out there, so putting that aside, I move onto the art. I absolutely love it. I've always amired your bright and colourful style, and how full of life your pictures seem. You seem to know how to draw just about anything, especially cute things. (Or sneaky. XD) I worship you! O_O

As for the passing of your dog, I truely am sorry. I've lost plenty of people in my life, the majority of them being pets. Dogs seem to bring out the joy in us all (except dog-haters, so screw them), and always have that little bit of cheer that I find contagious. They're people to share your secrets with, and offer a fuzzy shoulder to cry on. They're people who are companions, guardians, feet warmers, and pillows. 'Tis a sad thing to let go of something so close to your heart. My blessings be with Max.


By the by, I love how you draw bearded dogs. I have three scottish terriers, and can never seem to get them quite right... -_-'

October 30th, 2005, 5:16 PM
Oh WOW, the Pokemon are sooo cute! :3 I LOVE the Togetic/Togepi one! It's so adorable! GOod job! :)

October 31st, 2005, 6:49 AM
Thats a lovely new piece you have here. ^^ Awesome.

October 31st, 2005, 7:04 AM

you got my full approval on the subject of art
*throws cookie*

The pichu and psyduck one ^^ teh cuteness overwhelmed me

October 31st, 2005, 8:04 AM
Aww, thanks you guys! Ah yes Strider, losing a pet is very hard when you feel especially loved by them and give much of your love in return. Mac was my first family dog, so he was special. He was also thirteen. A nice ripe old age. ^^

dark_espeon, it took me forever to draw Mac right with his beard! XD Many hours of scribbled out drawings. Though luckily I had gotten it down before I had to draw this picture. This was my best drawing of him too. Truly brought on by the inspiration of his passing. Sad to say that, but true. Inspiration doesn't always have to be a good thing that happens.

mistywishmaker, thanks for the comment! By the way, that Azumarill flashy icony thing in your signature is soooo cute! I just wanna huggle those two bunnies to death! XD

Cybex, thankies! I wanted it to bring out their personalities with a cutesy cartoon twist. ^^

Blazin Espio, thanks for the cookie! *chomps happily* Ooh! White chocolate chip, one of my favorites! =D And I'm glad you found things cute. Cute is what I do. ^-^

November 2nd, 2005, 2:27 AM
Nice! I love the Blueeyes one..so much detail. And Houndizard! Is it a fusion?

November 2nd, 2005, 1:30 PM
*nods to ShadowMarik* Jup, 'tis a fusion. I should draw another fusion pokemon sometime... *gets idea* Hm.... Oh, and thanks for the compliment on the Blue Eyes. I don't draw too many Yugioh monsters, but I just can't resist doodling the purdiful dragon. ^-^

Anyway, later tonight I'm gonna scan the outline for my next contest entry. So, I should have at least that and a few others things that I've been meaning to scan as well. ^-^

November 2nd, 2005, 1:52 PM
Melissa, you're the master! I love the Flygon/Articuno picture... Now I really want to draw a battle scene! *runs to get pencils*

Your flexibility at drawing different things is amazing. I can draw dogs, cats....that's it. xD

November 3rd, 2005, 8:27 AM
Aww, thanks Charon. ^-^ You're pretty good yourself! And you can do watercolors much much better than yours truly. XD

Anyway, I've taken the liberty of scanning stuff!! Now keep in mind, everything besdies my sketch for the contest was done about 5 months to a year ago. These pictures all currently hang in my room by the way. ^-^

Digimon Drawings=

These are all with felt-tip pen as the outlines, and colored pencil for the coloring. The ones with individual digimon were colored/drawn on printer paper when I was bored one day and had no sketchbook paper. They came out so good that I decided to scan 'em. ^^ The big one was done on sketchbook paper.

November 3rd, 2005, 8:53 AM
Been meaning to comment on this for ages, but it seems like everything I intend to do gets delayed for some reason or the other. *Is far too lazy for his own good* <_<

Anyhow, these pictures are amazing, Melissa. ^_^ I knew you were good...but...wow...I'd love to comment on all of them but I don't have the appropriate experience for that so I'll just comment on my three favourites.

The one with the Smeargle and the Exploud

Ooh...this one's my absolute favourite. Love the expressions...particularly the Smeargle's one, and the whole scene...well, it made me smile the very first time I saw it. ^^

Azurills in the rain

Again, the expressions won me over here. Particularly the indignant one on the one on the right-hand Azurill. Good work with the rain too (I never manage to draw rain right...not that I can draw much anything right but still.), plus, I like the general colours of the pic.

Mac and Sticky

Yup, inspiration can definitely come from various sources. Your work with Mac's furr is really impressive and they both seem so...alive somehow. Again, the expressions are great. It's obvious that you put a lot of effort into it.

As I said, they're all great. Even the Digimon ones...and I don't even like Digimon. XD

November 4th, 2005, 8:27 AM
Thanks AE! ^-^ Lots of people like the Smeargle one. I must have been in sync with the paper when I drew it. And it was the first time I had drawn either of those pokemon too. >.< Learning to draw things is fun though. I always like to learn. Rain is really fun to do too; I've been doing rain for quite some time on computers, though most of it's just messing around. ^^ And I did spend a lot of effort on Mac and Sticky. I wanted it to look good, and make them proud. Speaking of Mac, tomorrow we pick up his ashes... ;_;

Heh, there was a short time where I was really into Digimon, thus why I have so many drawings of them. I have lots of pokemon drawings, but they're from further back, when my skills weren't as good. Also, I have tons of sketches, but they're not very good either. Oh! Maybe I'll put up a few though like this Quilava I have. It was one of my favorite sketches.

November 4th, 2005, 9:05 AM
OMG!!! I just simply love the Patamon and Gatomon! They are extremely cute!:D
The Smeargle is definetly cool!
Pretty nice work there LA! You are sure to be a master!:D

November 4th, 2005, 9:12 AM
I <3 Digimon!

I can't believe they were coloured with coloured pensils x_x The shadding is awesome and I love their poses. It could really pass off as original art for the series!

Anyways, great work, I love Hawkmon so naturally that would be my favourite, but they are all equally as good as one another in quallity ^_^

Great work Azu, keep up the awesome work!

November 4th, 2005, 10:06 AM
Very cool those Digimons! I also like the group pic!

Keep doing it!

November 4th, 2005, 2:57 PM
I love your artwork.The Clefairy looks soooo kawaii <333

November 4th, 2005, 3:06 PM
wow, they are great! you have real talent in art ^_^;

Celebi: *blushes* Aw, thanks Celebi, you're too kind. ^^ Maybe a master someday, but very far from it right now. And I'm glad ya' like the Patamon and Gatomon, they were my favs of the digimon pics.

Strider: Yes, Digimon is teh awesomeness! ^___^ And thanks for the comments; I was truly in the zone that day I swear. Normally I can't draw Veemon and Hawkmon for beans (with few exceptions). Which kinda sucks because Hawkmon is one of my favorites. His Japanese voice is so deep; I love it!

QFred: Thanks! And I shall keep doing it as long as I get inspiration. Which should be quite a bit considering I'm getting subbed Japanese versions of Digimon now. Tee hee...! Hooray for file sharing. ^.^

Shampoo: Yay! Clefairy appreciation! That is still one of my favorite drawings, and I'm really not entirely sure why. I mean, the shading's so-so on it, but I just love the way it looks. And thank you for your nice comments.

Serpenter: Thanks! You guys are so nice here. And I hope to get better in the future as well. ^-^

Now for an update! Two pics, one my finished contest entry, and the other a Dark Magician Girl picture I did a month or so ago. The contest pic is drawn of course, but colored in Adobe Photoshop, and the DMG picture was all pencil and colored pencil. Enjoy:

if you do fusions, i would like a mix of eevee and absol ^^ thanks light azumerill or however you spell it ^_____^

November 5th, 2005, 8:07 PM
I was thinking of doing a fusion drawing actually, and an Eevee and an Absol sounds kinda fun. ^.^ Perhaps I shall. Yes, I think so.

Thanks for your comment!

Oh, and it's Azumarill. Or, you could shorten it to LA, or L_A, or you could call me my real name; Melissa. The choice is yours! ^-^

November 5th, 2005, 9:43 PM
Oo Digimon! ^.^ Very nice. I love Gatomon

ok! thanks light_azumarill!

I just love your art, Azumarill/LA/L_A/whatever the anatomy on all those pics is flawless, the shading is just incredible and the expressions are great =) I especialy like the one with the smeargle taunting the exploud and it made me smile too well, it made me smile the very first time I saw it. ^^
Correction, it made you smile the second time you saw it too, I showed the picture thinking you hadn't seen you yet ^_^

I also like the picture of the sealeo in the ice cave, I just love the reflection on the ice.

The one with the psyduck teaching its child is one of my favourites too, the background looks incredible and I just love psyduck ^_^

Your art looks really profesional I think, I actualy like most of your art more than I like official illustrations.

November 6th, 2005, 11:32 AM
Loving it, as usual! Especially the colours! What programs do you usually use? I can see in some pictures you use Paint BBS...

November 6th, 2005, 11:52 AM
ShadowMarik: Yeah, I like my Gatomon too. She turned out quite nicely. It took me forever to learn how to draw her. o.O She looks easy but she's really not. Thanks for the comment!

Diamond~Star: Well, I did your fusion of pokemon! See below!

Arty: Aw, thanks! I'm glad you think my drawings come off as somewhat professional. That's what I strive for! ^-^ And it's good to know my art can make people smile more than once. =D

Charon: Well, I use Adobe Photoshop mostly, unless as you said they're PaintBBS. And thanks for the comment! ^-^ It's nice to have friends comment on your art.

Now for some more pictures. Because I can. ^-^

EEEEEE !!!! O_O!
:tackles Quilava drawing: OMG Oo; QUILIE!! it looks like what I want my quilava's personality to be ^^ its so cute! Awesome job LA and the shading is very nice, the lines are smooth too =3 i love the eyes.

November 6th, 2005, 5:14 PM
Diamond~Star: Your welcome. Glad you think it's cute! ^^

FNA: Heh, Quilava's one of my favorite pokemon to sketch. I dunno why, but I always draw it standing up too. I think maybe because I consider that it's cutest position. It's also the cutest position for my pet bunny to take. ^-^ It was actually an older sketch of mine, probably two years ago. But it's still one of my favorites. Thanks for the comment!

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG...... *goes on like this for several hours*

Your art is amazing, Light_Azumarill! Flawless, realistic, life-like drawings that practically take on a life of their own and jump out of the screen! They're adorable! *glomps your art and you* ^^

I second that statement. I'm not much a Digimon fan anymore, but I must say, those pictures are impressive. All of them are, in fact. I'm surprised you don't have your own site or something...

I AM NOT WORTHY!!! *falls face-first into ground, sheilding face from the awesome work of Melissa*

November 9th, 2005, 5:43 PM
I sort of spazzed out there... Sorry, I just couldn't help it. ME ISH NOT WORTHY EITHER!!! *kneels down on her knees and bows over and over and over...* And here we go with the spazzes again. >_>

Aww...more cute piccies! ^^ Although I'm not a big Pikachu fan, that first picture does look good methinks. The Ghastly's good too, only the line of that closed eye is maybe a tad on the big side...other than that, great work as always. ^^

Hi Melissa! Plushie has come to visit your thread at last! XD

Yay! You've drawn a Ghastly! 'Tis a really cute Ghastly, too, very fine work indeed!

Actually.. Everything you draw is cute when it's supposed to be. Makes me envy your talent, yes it does. =3

You're doing so well, keep it up! ^.^

November 27th, 2005, 1:48 AM
Wow, LA, these are amazing!

Sketches of Pokemon:

Rukario (Just a quick sketchy):


Charmander (From my Trainer Fic that's on Fanfiction.net):


Charmeleon (A rather cute one):


Comments welcome as usual. I would have more, but the contest picture took up most of my energy. ^-^

December 20th, 2005, 10:36 AM
Oh. Em. Gee.
Mel, I love these! I'm terrible at commenting on drawings, but I love the vulpix! Especially your shading, it almost looks like fur. I love her eyes, too, and the christmas tree. You also have supreeeeeme skill with a pencil, the charmander's eyes are just priceless.

Alter Ego
December 21st, 2005, 11:54 AM
Yay! More artwork! ^^

Well Melissa, you already know what I think about your contest piccie, so I'll just comment on these sketches here...

First of all, they're all very well proportioned and professional looking sketches. Again, great job on the shading. Rukario has never interested me very much so...meh, that's probably the one I like least, more for the motif than anything else. Oh, and there huge blank area on the upper left-hand corner is kind of bad, but there's not very much that can be done about it due to the pose and suchlike. Anyways, it's an accurate representation methinks. And the Charmander...*Squeals* I love it! Especially that expression! ^-^ Although I already love your fanfic so my opinion might be biased, anyways, good job. And the same goes for the Charmeleon (I could picture it being the Charmander from the previous picture evolved, actually). It's refreshing to see a piccie where Charmeleon isn't being all tough and savage for a change. ^^ I mean come on, all the nice little Charmeleons out there must be sick and tired of that demeaning stereotype by now.

Anyhow, great job as always. Thy art pwneth, Melissa. ^-^

December 24th, 2005, 7:19 PM
^Oooooh, the Charmeleon is SUPER cute! =3 I's wanna hugs it *huuuugs your art* Good job! =D

December 24th, 2005, 8:17 PM
Great piccehs Melissi!^^
I love the way you shaded them,even if you said it was quick.XD

The Christmas Vulpix pwnz.XD
The Charmeleon is greatness,I love the extra effects you added,like the smoke coming out of its snout.The Charmander is just plain cute.Love the eyes.The Rucario picceh is Feebas too!!^^Though,you left the top left side blank,its still niceness.^^

January 16th, 2006, 7:40 PM
Really awesome art ^___^ It's all very, very neat. I love how you draw the faces, too!
ANd it's very colourful.

Keep it up =}
