Draw me like one of your French Bui by Rapid-the-Hedgehog
Draw me like one of your French Bui
Drawn on my 3DS in Pokémon Art Academy. Stock background, took around two hours in total. 

Had this one in my head for a while but only just got around to it. Was very very close to calling this ''Draw me like one of your Mustébouée" (Buizel's French name), but just about decided against it since it's a bit of a mouthful. P:
I'm not done with you yet~ by Rapid-the-Hedgehog
I'm not done with you yet~
Welp Mark is drawing gay dragons again

Seriously though these two are so goddamned OTP X3 (Dragonite loves it really, not that he'd ever admit it)

Drawn on my 3DS in Colors! 3D. As such, the outlines do look a little rough around the edges (annoyingly they looked fine on the 3DS, but I guess imperfections show a bit more once you export it at a higher resolution (they're almost invisible on the 3DS screen).

So yeah, I've had the idea for this in my head for a while now. Admittedly having a fixed canvas size and shape did make the perspective quite tricky, and I did have to make a few compromises in terms of proportions/ anatomy just to fit everything in the picture the way I wanted. I'd heard some comments on the WIP version that it looked like Charizard was sitting down, but at the same time I couldn't really afford to make him any taller or he'd go off the top of the picture. So I tried drawing a bit of shadow under his foot to make it look more like he's walking away from the viewer (and dragging Dragonite with him P: )

Also, god damn drawing Dragonite's wings at that angle was hard. D: I still don't think I got them spot on.
Pokemon Art Academy - 'My Favourite Pokemon' entry by Rapid-the-Hedgehog
Pokemon Art Academy - 'My Favourite Pokemon' entry
My entry for the current Pokémon Art Academy contest. The category is 'My Favourite Pokémon'... the problem was that there was no way I could settle on just one of these guys. :P

I decided on the pose almost right away. I'd actually considered putting Goomy in the picture as well (sitting on Dragonite's head), but I decided that it'd make the picture a little too cramped and that it'd lessen the composition of the piece (sorry Goomy). Not to mention obscure part of Dragonite a fair bit.

The lighting was a bit of a tricky one, in that it was something of a lose-lose situation. With the Pokémon facing in different directions, I didn't really want any of them to have their face in shadow (since it rarely looks good). Meaning I had to try and make a weird compromise on the lighting without it looking too weirdly impossible.

As the title suggests (and the contest requires), drawn in Pokémon Art Academy on the 3DS, hence some slightly wonky lines in places, as well as the stock background. Yes, it's the same stock background I used for my last picture. >_> But it was the one that fit best with the image and I generally liked this one best. 
Pokemon Art Academy - Swapsies by Rapid-the-Hedgehog
Pokemon Art Academy - Swapsies
Relatively quick, fun piece done in Pokémon Art Academy for 3DS. 

Oshawott and Buizel are my two favourite Pokémon, so I toyed with the idea of them swapping their trademark accessories. (Even if it's been suggested that Buizel's floatation sac should actually be part of his body and he'd die if it were taken off XD; )

Since I derw this in Pokémon Art Academy, the lines are a little rough and wonky in places, and outside of that Buizel's proportions are a little off in places. I also didn't consider the background (which I should probably mention is one of the stock ones provided by the game) when I started, so the perspective of them is kind of off in comparison to it, too. XD

In retrospect this might have made a fun Halloween picture (even though I started it a week or so ago), but eh.

  • Playing: Mega Man 3 (3DS Virtual Console)
Sooo, with Pokémon Art Academy out this week (and my copy hopefully arriving tomorrow), I've been wondering if it's actually worth posting the results to my Gallery.

In retrospect, I probably won't, since I don't really want to clog up my Gallery with identikit pieces that everyone and their mother with have drawn due to following the in-game tutorials. :P If I draw any interesting original pieces with it I might post them here, although I'll probably post the rest to Scraps just so they're up here in some shape or form.

Also, on an unrelated note, I think I'll go back and post some WIP pencil versions of some of my recent stuff to Scraps fairly soon, too. :)

EDIT (Also apparently titles can't contain é so I have to omit spelling Pokémon properly XP)
