View Full Version : Simulacrum

Here is my darnedest at a modern-day Pikachu Pokemorph.

Pikaboy says: Reconnoiter Psycho's prevalent fanart!
I think that I did pretty well on this one, aside from my atrocious outlining.

Also, I just consummated my latest rendition of Drew:
I'm not too fond of my choice of text style (seeing as it doesn't fit the picture at all) nor do I adore my shading in the least bit. Though, that's just me, I frequently hate the shading that I do in all of my pictures.

This is for all of the Drew/Shuu fans >_>; So be happy.

Your animadversions, expositions, and ego-builders are welcomed.

Beware: I may attack/bite you if unprovoked and bored.

Thank you for your animadversion, but I'm not too predisposed of such short posts, which do nothing to aid me as an artist or add to the thread. Could you maybe tell me why Pikaboy merits that of a eight instead of a ten, or at least, expound upon your conjecture a bit more. One-liners, which are nothing more than additions to postcount, are frowned upon and lugubrious.

Though, I do appreciate your alacrity to post, don't be afraid to let loose, I'm a tough girl >_>

Here are some impromptu sketches, most of which have been done in the past:

Masterdrawing (http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f178/psychoticgeniuskaren/masterdrawing1.png)

For those of you who don't know, Master Drawings, are drawings of the great masters, image collections and essays on old master drawings, including Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Proudhon. They are basically, replications of pieces done by artists considered great masters.

Last, but not least, is my failed attempt at a comic-which I won't be finishing, so no captions are coming anytime soon:

Page 2 (http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f178/psychoticgeniuskaren/1page3.png)

I was fighting with myself on whether or not I should post this, and I decided that I should. I'm not to fond of this exertion, but a little perspective from others never hurt.

Animadversions, expositions, and ego-builders are welcomed once again.

Honestly the only thing I don't like about the second picture

Is your name which is somehow written on top of the picture and not fading in with it.

The first picture I like it, still the yellow of his hand seems to be going on his T-shirt.

Everything else is just fine.
Great pictures
99.9999999999999 % perfect.

And I'm not an ego-builder alright man

I really like your masterdrawings! I don't think I have ever seen anyone here post works based on those of the great masters, so that was very interesting! I particularly like the shoe - the shading is very well-done, and it looks like you have really studied the source material!

Pikaboy is good, though in some areas the shading could be more prevalent - the hair, for example, could use shades of both light and dark. :) I really like Drew, though, and his Masquerain! Masquerain is such a rarely-drawn Pokémon that it's a treat to see a drawing of it!

Your comic is cool - I like the sense of movement you have there! The backgrounds are a bit bland and look a little rushed, but I understand how hard they are to draw so that's not really a problem, especially when they aren't the most important feature (as in a comic!)

Nice work! Been reading up on your Baudrillard? =P

Nifty art. ^^ I love the sketches especially; there seems to be more detail in them. The mastersketch is amazing, the clothes look almost perfect! The one thing that bothers me about the Drew picture is the hair eclipsing half the face in the full-body drawing- it feels like a cop-out, although it's still a very nice picture. ^^ Much better than I can manage with photoshop. XD
