I’ve wanted to draw some proper art of Zeraora since its debut, but it seems like the specifics of its design just really clash with my style and preferred media. idk how I’d handle those stupid whiskers, but otherwise, the design basics are really similar to Zoroark, but canine heads are still easier to work with than feline ones for me even though I like cats better than dogs, lol.
Stuff from the Graph’O review.
Didn’t turn out as I hoped, but happy to move past the starters and get onto the other stuff.
I’ve always been annoyed at how the yellow patch of stomach/chest scales moves around in the evos though. Of the starters, I think the Chikorita line turned out the best… probably because it was the one I cared the least about, haha.
Impressed with how well the point has kept on this brown Tombow Fudenosuke.
Gen 9 starter sketches… Fuecoco is the best one but it is hardest to draw. 😔 Sprigatito still feels like a lesser version of Leafeon to me, and Quaxly is what Ducklett should’ve been.
Pokemonathon sketches… having a hard time with Feraligatr line because they’re my favourites and I want them to be cool…
I reviewed the Denik sketchbook a while back. The tl;dr was that it has some of the best paper I’ve seen in a sketchbook since the Punctuate (RIP). I bought a bunch when they were on sale but then decided to go through the rest of my stash of Punctuate sketchbooks to tear off the bandaid of them being discontinued.
Hisuian Zoroark scribbles/studies for the previous… Still want to draw something cooler with this design. It’s not clear that those red things all over its body aren’t eyes.
I know vengefulness is among kitsune stereotypes, but it’s kind of a shame that Ninetales’s purported vengefulness was never highlighted much while Zoroark gets an entire alt form dedicated to the idea? Though I guess resentment isn’t quite the same as vengefulness. 🤔
Anyway, I really like Hisuian Zoroark’s design and don’t feel like I did it justice here, but it was nice to play around with the grey Tombow Fudenosuke for inking.
Bunch of Hisuian Arcanine scribbles from after the official design got confirmed… honestly, I think everyone’s guesses/hopes were much more interesting. Want to do a new scroll with this design, but am having a hard time making it work for me.
Drawings to test out the Newpen Ginza Pro brush pens.
Shiny New Years Hoothoot was really cute. ‘v’ Blick Studio Brush markers are all right.
Hat Wurmple is the best hat mon in the game, don’t @ me.
Have been messing around with all-electric UL and ML teams for a while, but it’s been harder to pin down a GL team because there’s more options. This one’s been doing well in the Holiday Cup though!
Been having a good time doodling event images for local bike party people. 🥳
Where is the fluffy unicorn Arcanine, cowards. I am expecting basically Galarian Rapidash, but Arcanine.
