2016 Redraw

It’s about that time for one of my art redraws!


…Okay, this one’s a little embarrassing to share. I was looking for an older sketchbook that still had some blank pages in it (because I can’t bring myself to use any of the newer blank sketchbooks I have) and found a bunch of really old drawings. Pokemon, Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, Powerpuff Girls, Neopets…a pretty good representation of what I was interested in as a kid/preteen. I did quite a few crossover drawings, like this “Tuxedo Ash” (which, BTW, I’m pretty certain is not an original idea of mine).

I also drew comics back then, but let’s not talk about those! >\\\\<

SO. This drawing. 15 years (!!) has sure made a difference, especially with proportion and composition. I’m still struggling with color and backgrounds….and I still have no idea how capes (fabric in general, for that matter) work.

2016 was another slow drawing year for me, apart from Tam Team Adventures. Oh well. Just gotta keep doing what I can 🙂


Pokemon 118 and 119

I am actually having fun playing with line thickness and training my eye to see more subtle color variances within each pokemon now haha

Pokemon 115 – 117

I literally took months trying to finish Kangaskhan. I went to it a few times and just put down a line then was over it. It was strange, as soon as I finished up 115 (Kangaskhan)… Mega Kangaskhan, Horsea and Seadra were all finished within about 7hrs. Finallllly things are back on track  😀

Pokemon 114

Tangela – all by its lonesome because it took me forever to get things properly placed haha

Pokemon 111 – 113

Pokemon 109 – 110

Why did it evolve from happy to sad? I think I saw that with another evolution too haha

Pokemon 106 – 108

Pokemon 102 – 105

Pokemon 98 – 101

Yay passed 100 pokemon done!

pkmn challenge: 088-89 + recent doodles

Did these a while ago and was planning to post them with more Pokemon, but then I got stuck on Cloyster (and I am still stuck). So! here are 088 Grimer and 089 Muk in ink!

And while I’m at it, here are some doodles I did recently while trying to get more comfortable coloring in FireAlpaca, a neat drawing program (and it’s free!):

I don’t play basketball or anything, I just needed an avatar for my Fantasy league team LOL

The last one is a (messy!) redraw of this screencap from Sailor Moon! It’s a fun exercise, so if anyone has some favorite screenshots from anime or other cartoons, send them my way and I might draw them 😀
