    Not really been producing much of anything as of late without assistance. Here's another update.

    *Sandshrew Plushie Collab.
    Another Pokemon plushie. Less of my own work went into this than my Dusparce plushie. My mom did most of the work for this, pretty much all of it in fact, but I did have some input. I made the drawing for her to go by and I added highlights to the eyes. Other than that, I did nothing but throw out suggestions. However, that's still enough to call this a collaboration. Besides, this deserves to be shown off and my mom doesn't have a dA or a PokeCommunity account. Made with some left-over felt. Measures about 6.6" tall.

    *Calcifer Gift Art
    Calcifer from Howl's Moving Castle. A Christmas present for one of my friends.

    *Arceus Sketch _working
    Just a sketch of Arceus. My recent 'goofy' Arceus fake inspired me to draw a more serious one. It's far from done, but I think it's turning out nice.

    *SnowManeki Neko
    Not much to do inside today, so my sister and I put on coats and gloves and went outside. I started building something out of snow. I was going to make a snow Pikachu, but I changed my mind and decided to make a snow Maneki Neko. My sister helped a lot, though I'd say we did about the same amount of work (it's highly possible that she did more). The base was done by each of us, though I got it started. My sister made the awesome ears. I made the bell and koban. My sister made the arms. I made the bell. She made the facial features. I made the tail (can't see in this pic). Including the ears, it's about 3 feet tall. Check out my sister's gallery here.

    I love the plushies, Kouga... I have to say that I'm quite sure that I could see myself paying for that Dunsparce one. :D

    I'm also a big fan of that Calcifer - he's my favorite character too - that candy cane makes it awesome.

      Thanks. I really wish real (official) Dunsparce plushies were made... Buuut, I guess The Pokemon Company didn't think it had enough fans... even though I've talked to many Dunsparce fans... and Dunsparce is awesome. Serene Grace + Ice Beam combo <3.

      Thanks again! =D

          Thank you, Trent.

          I agree. Dunsparce is amazing. I personally prefer Ice Beam + Serene Grace, but I'm just an ice fanatic.

          I'm glad you like my works. I will try to finish the Arceus pic soon, though I will probably work on some new stuff before that happens. Actually, I've already started on something different.
          Spoiler:

          A new OC. Possibly Makoto, Kj's cousin who I've been trying to design for quite some time.

            UPDATE: New "Makoto: Coloring Test" pic added to the Hand/Digital section.



            It's Kj's cousin, Makoto! I've been trying to design his concept on and off for nearly half a year.

            Makoto is a special kind of Neko known as a "Nekomata," or twin-tailed Neko. Also, unlike my other Neko characters, he has no element applied to him. Instead, he is a "Blood" Neko(mata) that can change the attributes of his body at will or, in other words, shape-shift. Most commonly, this ability is used to transform into a cat (Xane can do this because he has some 'Blood' Neko blood) or a human, but further techniques can be developed, such as those that allow one to 'shape-shift' individual parts of their body. However, regardless of what the body is transformed into, it is still living. This can result in some horrific and grotesque weapons.

            Don't worry. The pic is incomplete. He WILL have arms, legs, etc. I may add more markings. I dunno what he'll wear as of yet.

            His original design was going to have black hair (right), but that didn't look great in my opinion (though it is starting to grow on me).
            I tried brown (left) and it looked better, IMO. What do you guys think? Feel free to suggest eye colors as well.

            Brown with copper eyes : 9 votes
            Black with copper eyes : 3 votes
            Black w/ green eyes [link] : 2 votes

            Original pic: [link]

              UPDATE: Millenium Puzzle Cosplay Prop

              This is, I think, my third attempt to create a Millenium Puzzle and is probably my best. I created a papercraft (which can be found here) and used it as the base. I printed a second copy of the papercraft and cut out all the pieces (everything that is outlined) and glued some of them to the base to give it some relief. Afterward, I coated it with 4 layers of heavy-body acrylic paint (which helped to smooth it out, to make it look like it wasn't made of paper) followed by a coat of normal acrylic black (for whatever reason). I used a jump ring for the hoop at the top (which you can't see much of in this pic). I then finished it off with 2 or 3 layers of metallic gold spraypaint.

              Sorry about the poor image quality. The only camera I have is the one built into the DSi. My mom has a high-resolution digital camera, but I didn't feel like putting forth the effort to get it. :P

                xD *this sounds so much like my core drill.... especially since the only camera I have was MY Dsi too...*

                Thats really well made though, the acrylic to make it look like its not made from paper was a clever idea (Paper must mean its pretty light still, though?) plus the relief details make it look great~ a really good replica~! from this i assume you're going to cosplay as Yu-gi?

                  I saw. It looks great. :)

                  Thanks. Yeah, since it was made of paper (cardstock), it's pretty light.

                  Haha... I wouldn't be able to pull off a Yugi cosplay. I like the idea of cosplaying, but I don't do it... I may, however, still wear the puzzle during duels. lol

                    lol! Cosplay can be scary. But his hair would be hella difficult to pull off x____X;;;
                    Though, wearing that for duels earns you like, bonus cool points 8)

                        Woah... that's so much drawings. =O A shame my internet hates me so much I'm not able to open all of them. xD But from what I see so far, that's a lot. =O
                        How long have you been drawing? C: And how long does it take you to draw one picture? xD (I think this question has been asked before, but too lazy to look through the comments, haha. xD)

                        I really like it~ C: Do you have a tablet to color digitally? =O

                        (Lol, sorry if I'm asking so much questions, I'm just curious. xD)

                        EDIT:

                        OMG, IS THAT THE MILLENIUM PUZZLE THING? O__O IT LOOKS SO FRIGGIN AWESOME.
                        I agree with you man, that is totally sexy. o3o -loves the shininess-

                          I recently noticed that a lot of those links won't work properly because, apparantly, when I started grouping my deviations, the URLs changed. I'll try to fix that later. I've been drawing for a long time, but I first started getting serious about it back in 2003, but my 'better' drawings have occured since 2007. The time it takes for me to draw a picture depends on what the drawing is of (a human/humanoid character or animal/creature) and the amount of details. I can sketch most Pokemon under 30 minutes, but it takes about 15+ minutes to clean up the lines (which I usually only do when I'm going to color it). I usually spend 1+ hour(s) sketching my original characters, which is probably about how long it takes for me to draw other human/humanoid characters, but I've never timed myself. Time to color the image varies depending on the coloring style I use (one of my favorites, the one used on 'Dark Magician Girl' and 'Kj Again'/'Kj with Banner,' takes 2+ hours while another favorite of mine, digital watercolors, like those on 'Aki Colored,' takes less than 20 minutes, usually).

                          I'm glad you like them. Unfortunately, I do not have a tablet to color digitally. Just a mouse pad.

                          I don't mind all the questions. I'm happy to answer them. :)

                          Yes, that is the Millennium Puzzle thing. Thanks. ^^

                            Ohh... I see. It'd be nice to see all of the works you did. xD haha.

                            That seems really fast...x__x I take hours to decide on what pose, maybe cus I'm so indecisive... You're really dedicated to your work, that's good~ XD

                            WOH. REALLY? Just a mouse? That... that really takes a lot of time and patience... o_o; (And it gives hand cramps doesn't it? X_x)

                            xD No problem, it looks really real and looks awesome~

                              Well, the best way to view all of my works is my clicking here.

                              I occasionally take time to figure out a pose, sometimes even take a pic of myself as a reference), but it usually just happens as I draw.

                              Eh, I'm used to the mouse. I've been using it for years, so it doesn't bother me.

                              ^^

                                  Why do people have the urge to worship me today? You're the second one.

                                  I think so too. Thanks. :)

                                  Here are some more Millennium Items that I've been working on:




                                  The Millennium Necklace needs a chain. The Millennium Key ended up breaking, so I'm going to try to remake it with plaster or something. The Rod and Ring still need to dry and be painted. I like how these are turning out (well, besides the Key).

                                            I would make one for you... but I would need some cash in exchange. I doubt you're willing to pay what I would ask. Even if you were, it's very likely that it would break during shipping; it would be better off if you picked it up personally, another thing that I highly doubt you'd do.

                                            Are you sure you're talking about the Necklace? You mentioned before that you wanted Bakura's, which happens to be the Millennium Ring. Though it works like a necklace, it isn't actually the Millennium Necklace. The Millennium Necklace is eye-like shape on the main right (though it lacks a chain).

                                            Yeah, I used metallic gold spray paint on all of these.

                                            Thanks. :)

                                                  UPDATE: Millennium Rod that my dad and I made

                                                  My dad did most of the work (the wood work portion). I drew the template and sculpted the eye and rings. It measures about 1'03". I like it, but we're currently working on another that, imo, looks better than this one. Now only gott'a make the Millennium Scales. (Note: I've already made the Millennium Key/Ankh, but I haven't posted it here because I'm not particularly proud of it. However, you can still see it in a pic in my dA gallery.)

                                                  UPDATE: Shugo Nekaisu (Click him to view the larger version)

                                                  If you've looked through my gallery, you've probably met Nekaisu. However, if you have not, here's some info about this lil' cutie: Inspired by Peach-Pit's anime/manga "Shugo Chara!" and inspired by my original character, Kj'kun, this is Nekaisu, one of my Guardian Characters. His name is a combination of the Japanese words for cat (neko) and ice (aisu). Unlike most Guardian Characters, Nekaisu is actually a fusion of two of my other Guardian Characters: Maneki and Shimo (look at the link for "My Updated Shugo Charas").
