I decided to make a thread in here. With arts.

You can expect:
-heavy, big images
-Sketches, little finished work
-Lots of text and notes in the pictures.

And, without further ado, Pictures!
PS: You can also go to my Deviantart Account (http://umbbe.deviantart.com) and see more pictures.

My avatar at the time of posting, since I liked it so much. :3 I think I'll change my pokesona into a ditto. ;D

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Dittozardstandingcolorcroppedtransp.png
More!

PS: You can also suggest pokemon/pokecharacters to draw, and I might draw them. :3

Because Ditto's already don't kick enough ass as it is, being the sex machines they are.

Requesting Ditto- Machamp in an amazing pose.

Ymedron
09-29-2009, 05:16 AM
I'll try to do it. :P (Im not really good at drawing machop-line though)
Edit: Here it is.

(It's a bit messy, since I did it in about half a hour. <:D)

That's pretty monstrous.

Ymedron

He wants to emphasise his status as a womanizer. :P
(And my screen is so wide that it looks quite normal in that, but the school's much narrower screen shows it a bit scrunched up. Oh well.)

Ummm... how about a monferno ditto, in a manly pose stuck in mid air?
(sorta like the sugimori art)

Ymedron
09-29-2009, 04:26 PM
I can't really do sugimori style, but I'll try the pose.
(PS: You don't HAVE TO ask for ditto-pokemon, if you don't want to! ;D

Kai Lucifer

I have to say that I really like your art style. I won't request if you don't want me to, but I just wanted to say that.

Ymedron
09-29-2009, 05:22 PM
I just thought that people understood that I only draw ditto-pokes... :P Feel free to request something, but it might take a little while since Im still working on that monferno. :3
Edit: Okay, I made two versions. (And Im too lazy to write the copyrights so I just copy them from the charizard-pic. :D)

HELP IM BLINDED BY PURE AWSOMENESS!
Okay the face is a little bit ugly but it's still win. Umm.... shiny rampardos in the TCG pose? (the one that belongs to roark, that runs with one leg on the ground and has its mouth open while looknig forward)

Edit: The right shading looks realistic but the left looks better.

Ymedron
09-29-2009, 07:31 PM
;D I can see that- I had so much trouble with the dittoeyes-monfernobrows combo, I redrew it about five times.

Aww, I don't really like copying poses, but I'll do it anyway. (Maybe I'll learn something? :D)

Lars The Turtwig
09-29-2009, 07:33 PM
WAIT STOP DONT! I CHANGED MY MIND! Please make the same rampardos in the posr you made your avatar, with blue-white light background instead of the yellow-orange lights, but the rampardos still with red instead of blue(shiny!).

P.S. May I use it as an avvy if I like it?

Ymedron
09-29-2009, 07:34 PM
Okay, I'll try. : 3

Should it have it's arms up like the charizard's wings, or not? ;D

(EDIT: And yeah, you can, with credit. :3)

Lars The Turtwig
09-29-2009, 07:40 PM
Yea, please, but not too high, to make it appear a little... T_rex-ish....


Edit: You might want to tell people that will request your incredible art to give serious comment to one of your pictures in exchange.

Here's my smashing critique!

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Dittochampcoloredtransp.png

Okay, the shading is...not that good. Its legs are reallly nice, and the belt and boxers are fine. The shoulders are way too small, and so is the stomach. It seems like the chest is a bunch of high density muscles, and the upper hands are a little bit thin. The face is fine, the eyes are a little low quality, and the lips didnt go so well.

Overall, 6/10.

Ymedron
09-29-2009, 07:58 PM
Thanks! :D
I won't try to give any excuses- I screwed up with it.
I guess it has to do with the hurry I was in- I had about 40 minutes before the schoolbus would come, so I really hurried it up. Plus, Im not at all good with machop-line. <l3
Edit: And I still came up with excuses.
Edit2: And here is the picture:

YOU RULE SO BAD!
May I use it with credits?

Ymedron
09-29-2009, 09:17 PM
Yuppity yup. :D
Edit: PHO. I only now noticed the "You might want to tell people that will request your incredible art to give serious comment to one of your pictures in exchange." phrase. How blind of me.

I usually don't mind people leaving hardly useful comments, as I normally don't get any comments whatsoever on my pictures. The requests also give me a reason to do finished artwork, (These are unusually finished, normally I just sketch and that's it) so Im generally happy with people being happy with my art.

I do like critique, though. :3

Okay, the left one is much better and looks more realistic, while the right one looks like some piece of crap. The shading on the right makes it hard to see smaller details, while the one on the left one is much better, and makes it easier to understand the picture. The face is a bit smashed up, litteraly said, and looks like baba yaga's face after her house made a disco party on her And the hands are fine, although they seem to make the head look, once again, smashed up. The tail and flame are great in the left picture, while they suck on the right one. The red tail part looks interesting.
The legs are fine, and the overall pose is not bad.

My rating: 8/10(face killed the chances for 10).
-------------------------
Anyway, here's my new request- a picture, not avatar formed picture, of a turtwig with extra-big leaves that sits on its back while eating a leichi berry(you can search 'berries' in almost any pokemon site.
Normal Turtwig coloration.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 08:25 AM
Thanks for the critique. :D
Now I am absolutely certain that I won't use the ditto-eyes any more for humanshape pokemon. The brows really don't work with those eyes.
I'll start working on that picture when I get home. :3

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 02:25 PM
YAY! Btw, the face doesn't look as bad as I thought- I just didn't remember it right. Eyes are okay, but ears are way too bat-like. P.S. The face isnt smashed up after all, although I still think baba yaga's face, err, house made a disco on the machamp..

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 02:29 PM
:P Well, we've established that the machamp is poorly done already. ;D
Yeah, I stretched the ears for some unknown reason.

Hey, by the way, here's the sketch for the picture:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Turtwig.jpg
I drew it in school, so that's why it's on a lined paper.

Edit:
Okay, I finished the pic. :D
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Turtwigcoloredkopio.png

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 02:52 PM
Woah, you've got some talent! Its not the exact pose I hoped to get, but nevermind that. (I acctualy hoped to see it sitting like a kid, on its butt)
The leichi berry is done good, and the sketch is also great.

P.S. You use photoshop don't you?

Edit: Anyway, it looks like the character i hoped it would look like- Lars, a supersize head-leaf turtwig that likes to eat a lot. Used that character in a story a year ago but deleted the story. Now I sometimes use him in RP's. Anyway, keep on that way!

How long did it take to create it?

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 02:53 PM
Yes. :D Some times I use Open canvas 1.1, but not for any of these pictures. :3

EDITPS: I thought about making it sit like that, but I understood that you literally meant it was supposed to be on it's back alá shell. ;D
And the photoshop I use is 7.0.
Edit 2:
Just to show that I do something else than polished finished artwork, (actually, this much of well-done art is rare for me. ;D) have a picture of my friend's character as a pokemon, and as a gijinka:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Zsoyvaporeon.jpg

Edit part Tres: (damn, I need to pay more attention to the other people's posts:)
I did the sketch in about five minutes, and then painted in about... I'd say 20 to 40 minutes. Something along those lines. :3

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 03:07 PM
Umm... Any chance a loyal fan might request something new?

1) Is there a chance you could minimize Lars(the leichi turtwig) to avy size so I can use it(with credits of course)?
2) And, may i request a totodile sitting on his BUTT, sorta in the Pt turtwig position(NOT pose):
[sprite=pt]turtwig[/pt]
See it? Not the pose itself, but the 3D effect. That's what I hope.
And, btw, eating a salac berry happily, with a choice scarf around his neck(wow so much detail), holding the berry the way a mother is holding a small kid(hands straight forward with the berry before him), eyes closed and a happy expresion, mouth open, ready to eat.

Hope it's not too hard.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 03:13 PM
Okay, I'll do that. :D
Here is the avatar-sized version: http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Turtwigcoloredmini.png
I had to move the copyright text, so that if somebody steals it, I can prove it's mine. :<

Here is the sketch. I've inked it and am in the process of coloring. ;D

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 03:59 PM
*gasp!* It's good, but, err, Im afraid I said 'totodile', not 'squirtle'(owch).
But I still think it looks good.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 04:01 PM
ACK
I typoed. : O I'll make another one. xwx'''
I don't know what's wrong with my reading right now- First I don't pay attention to a question in front of me, and then I misread a pokemon's name...

At least it's a water pokemon, no? : DDD

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 04:06 PM
Yea, and it's nice, and Im in love with it but I hate blastoise and don't like squirtle much.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 04:14 PM
Well, never to worry! I've already drawn the sketch~!
Plus a bonus feraligatr. http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/TotoFerali.jpg

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 04:17 PM
WAY TO GO!They rule!

Is it possible that the totodile(after colouring) will be used in my control pannel picture?(Like Pokemonaholic(on my contact list) uses that sonic thingy?)
P.S. This totodile's pose it PERFECT. Straight said.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 04:18 PM
Okay, go ahead. :3
After all, you're the only one to comment on this thread since the... Fift post? : D

*INKS IN A SPEEDY FASHION*

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 04:23 PM
Could you seperate the two?
I mean... Well, each one seperately. I'll put the feraligatr in my signature, and the totodile at profile picture once master is done doing her masterpiece(lawl).

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 04:24 PM
Oh, I'll have to ink the Feraligatr too, then. :P
Should the Ferali keep that pose?
PSPS:
I'll say this just as a ref for future:
You may use these pictures in this forum only- I'd like to keep track of them. <:3 Of course, if someone else jacks them and goes posting them all over internet, that's a different story.
(And will make me a sad muffin. :< )

YEA THIS PIECE OF PAPER CONTAINS STUFF WITH (A) FUTURE!
*getting carried away*

Im taking a break to do my homework, but here is a preview of my current progress:

HEEEEEEEEELP MY EYES TOO AWSOME!

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 06:47 PM
Phew! Finally done with homework. I had to write a short text (In my case, one A4) about a subject of our choice in a certain style of presentation... zwz'

But at least I got Totodile done! Starting on Feraligatr now.
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Totocoloredkopio.png
I'll shrink it down once Im done with Ferali. :3

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 06:58 PM
It's really good, although the location of the credits is a little...disturbing. Lol.

P.S. Im not gonna repeat how much I like it anymore.

And if you think You have a lot to do, i have 4 days to write 5 B4 pages.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:00 PM
Yeah. ;D I couldn't think of any other place where it wouldn't be on top of any lines, though. D:

Ack. That's a... Wretched lot. You better get graded for that, no?

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 07:02 PM
Well, yea, my hardest work was answering 49 long math questions, though ones, and ONE of them contained 30 questions in it. Imagine. So 78.

Edit: All these within 5 days.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:03 PM
Damn... DAMN.
*can't even imagine*

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 07:09 PM
Yea, that's what happens when you forget summer work.

P.S. How's that fabolous ferali getting along?

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:10 PM
Well, Im highlighting it, and at the same time wondering, how shiny it should be.
Edit: Allright! Now Im done with them. How small should they be?
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Feralicoloredkopio.png

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 07:26 PM
Leave the feraligatr that size- but, uh, do you know the size a control panel picture should be?
I dont, sadly, and I wonder wether you know, and if you do, could you minimize to control panel size(the toto)?

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:33 PM
Okay, CP size should be around 150x150 max, if I remember correctly...
And I'll have to edit the totodile, AGAIN. Arrgghhh. D:

Here's the shrinked toto:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Totocoloredmini.png

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 07:36 PM
Well, at least the copyright's on the leg, less disturbing. yay and thanks! Gonna fill all of my stuff with it(signature, avvy and profile picture)

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:38 PM
Well, I meant by editing just that; it seemed at first that the image showed the copys on it's belly, but it seems to be correctly on it's leg now. :o

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 07:41 PM
Thanks! They are the only thing I have in my signature/avy/profile picture now!
With credits of course. *finally has a profile picture*

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:42 PM
: D It was fun to do them~!
Now Im out of things to draw... <lD I seem to do better work when it's for someone else...

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 07:47 PM
Uh, one question: Does it really make fun to paint these?

I mean, I spend hours in school painting, so I can understand if one has fun in it.


Umm, aggron in Feraligatr's pose?
With a muscle band around each of his steel rings to hide 'em all, and steel on the chest and stomach.

If it's okay for you.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:48 PM
Yeah, I find it fun to draw and paint a picture, (for someone else too) especially when it comes out looking very good! 83

Do you mean the official feraligatr, or the one I made?
And... What's a muscle band? <:D

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 07:54 PM
The one you made, and muscle band is an orange band, light orange, almost yellow, that makes muscles grow a little, but please dont make big muscles.

P.S. Make it have a snowball between his hands, a big one, as in avalanche.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 07:56 PM
Okay, let's try it. :D

Im not really sure what you mean, so I'll show you the sketch before I start coloring and inking. <l3

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 08:02 PM
Great! P.S. The muscle band looks like a choice scarf only it's a band and orange-yellow striped(okay more or less the same expect the stripe colour)

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 08:13 PM
PS: the choice band seems to have two red eyes on yellow base instead of orange and yellow stripes. 8O As shown here. (http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a7/Bag_Muscle_Band_Sprite.png)
Here is the sketch:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Aggronavalanche.jpg

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 08:19 PM
Wow, THIS looks like something with a future!
(ugh. Anyway it means its good)
Umm, well I think choice one is better(for head).
And, there's that dark ring at the end of the tail, right? Can that become a muscle band for unknown and mysterious reasons?

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 08:20 PM
Well, it'll either have to be a really wide one, or a normal one in the middle of it. (That would be kind of cute..!)

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 08:24 PM
Fair enough, I'll take the second choice, but, uh, could you skip over the black ring that is located (almost) at the end of the tail?

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 08:25 PM
Care to elaborate..?

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 08:29 PM
Er...What'd that mean?

..I mean, im not so good in engilsh(okay im the best in the class but i live in asia), so, uh, I have no clue about what you have said.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 08:31 PM
Well, it simply means "Could you explain a bit more?"

I didn't quite understand what you said about skipping-
Did you mean I should leave the ring or bandana out, or should I put the bandana elsewhere on the tail. :P

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 08:34 PM
Sorta- put the 'bandana'(yellow with red eyes) on the middle part of the tail, and make the rest of the tail 'flat', namely without that black bunch around the end of the tail.

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Aggronavalanche.jpg

See? The bunch on the tail is located where feraligatr had the tail fin.
And that part is good for feraligatr, but makes the poor Aggron look bad. -.-

-----------------

P.S. If it's really fun for you(I won't want to make people created things they don't like!),
Is there a chance that I(,Should I ever be able to) will send a pencil painted pokemon picture and send it here for you to give the 'final touches'?

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 08:35 PM
OH, now I see! Okay, I'll start inking it. : 3 I might have to go to sleep soon, though.

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 08:42 PM
What's your time when compared to GMT? Im 2 hours later.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 08:43 PM
Hmm... Im on the +2 timezone... The clock is 22:43 here now.

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 09:16 PM
Hmm. In winter/summer clock? I guess in summer clock(summer clock is one hour ahead of winter, or you can say winter laggs one hour behind summer clock)

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 09:17 PM
Summer.
Actually, I think Winter time is the normal time, as people feel an increased amount of stress when you have to change into summer time.
Edit: Okay, I colored the Aggron. :D Here it be:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Aggronavalanchecoloredkopio.png

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 09:24 PM
Oh, that explains.

And, it's because most people are fond of winter clock. Like me.

Anyway, that would mean we are acctualy around the asme time(since I moved my clock one hour backwards already)

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 09:29 PM
Hmm, in what country do you live?

And there was a discussion in the TV about summer/wintertime, and they said that it is no longer needed. The S/W time was (from what I know) created at first to preserve more daylight hours for working, but nowadays people work until the dark anyway... :P

Lars The Turtwig
10-01-2009, 09:37 PM
Lets say, im in the rather west part of Asia, close to europe.

Ymedron
10-01-2009, 09:39 PM
Hmm. I guess it's further east than Finland?
PS: I edited the aggron into a previous post earlier. :P

You. Are. Amazingly talented.

Seriously, you're good. I love the poses that you make, especially the one on the transparent Charizard.

Kratos Aurion
10-01-2009, 11:48 PM
This is very nice work, Ymedron! I think the full-body Ditto Charizard and the Aggron are my favorites--they're very dynamic and a lot of fun to look at. The silver parts on the Aggron could probably use some brighter highlights to indicate the shininess of the metal, but overall it's lovely.

The only consistent problem I see with several of your pictures is that the upper bodies of your subjects tend to be very skinny. This is especially noticeable on the Ditto Machamp (Twiggy already touched on it), which should have a lot more muscle definition and, in general, has a much larger upper body than lower body. But it's apparent on some of the other pictures as well, like Ditto Monferno and Aggron... although I guess your Aggron is rather slim overall compared to the official artwork, so it doesn't seem as out of proportion there. Using an upside down triangle to construct the shape of the shoulders and torso (or a larger one, if you're already doing something like that) when doing the preliminary work would probably help with that.

You also seem to get the colors outside of the lineart here and there, but personally I like the way that looks on your art. :) Perhaps it's just me, but I'm fond of "rough-looking" artwork. In some ways it has a bit more "personality" than rigid, perfectly clean lines, you know?

Also, Twiggy, if I may say something: I know you mean well and are only trying to help Ymedron when you critique her work, and I can tell that she understands and appreciates your comments, but I would advise against using phrases such as "looks like some piece of crap" or "the right one sucks". Something like "it isn't as good" or "isn't your best work" means the same thing without sounding harsh--you could just as easily take remarks like that out entirely and just focus on what could be improved, like the comments about detail being lost in the Ditto Monferno. Ymedron doesn't seem to mind, as I said, but wording it that way is rather rude and could be seen as offensive to someone who's a bit more sensitive about critique. Just something to keep in mind in the future, eh? It is nice to see someone who does take the time to leave constructive comments, though. That's so very rare around here, unfortunately.

You're busy enough as it is, Ymo, so I won't request anything. I look forward to seeing more from you, though. Keep up the good work.

Ymedron
10-02-2009, 05:33 AM
Thanks for the comments, to both of you. :33
The thing about upper bodies- I don't even notice that! D: I've always preferred drawing my creatures somewhat bottom-heavy, so I guess that's why I usually mess up with the upper body-size.
I should try that triangle-method, I've been constructing my sketches with just bubbles and lines. :P

Ah, Im not that busy. As of now, i don't have anything to draw, so a request is welcome. ;D It's nice to draw for different people, as they have different ideas and favourites among pokemon. : D

PS: I guess the lines go out, because I don't color on a dark background. I usually color on either white or transparent, so I can't really see the spills. <l3

Oh, Ooooh. You're good. I really like the Aggron sketch (better than the finished version for some reason. hm.), the Vaporeon sketch, and the Toto and Gator 8D The finished Aggron's tail gets a little thick near the end, also.

I think I'll make a request~ Can you draw me a shiny Umbreon, or more specifically, my character Rinna? Her eyes and rings are both pale blue, and her forehead ring goes over her eyes a bit (like this (http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk94/FullMetalCookies/My%20Art/Rinnadoodle.png)). She has a Rosary around her neck usually too. :3 You can put her in any pose you like, and take as long as you need :D

(And if you're ever up for an art trade, give me a shout!)

Ymedron

Okay, I'll start drawing it when I get home from school. :D *off to there*

10-02-2009, 09:23 AM
Hmm.... May I request something new?
If so, may I ask for a gible in the Totodile's pose, but this time with a lansat berry?
(There's picture Here (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Lansat_Berry))

Edit: YAY I NOW KNOW HOW TO WRITE TEXT OVER LINKS YAAAAAAAAAAAY!
*overzealous*


Edit2: Okay, time for my critique!

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Aggronavalanchecoloredkopio.png
-----------------------------------
This is really nice and all, but im afraid there's something I have to tell you about the shading- where the shading is heavy, for example on the face, you make it a stripe of shading, and that looks unrealistic. I mean, it looks good, but seeing that in the middle of the shading there's a bunch of light...Either there is a light source from above and below, or you simply make the shading full and not as a stripe.
(sorry if it was harsh)
The pose is good, and the bands are great, including their shading. The snowball is shaded great, and the colouration is fine. The only thing that bothers me is that, like Kratos said, the metal parts should be a bit shinier to make the watchers understand it's metal.

Pose: 7/10
Shading: 4/10
Colours: 8/10
My overall rating: 9/10(getting better!)

Ymedron
10-02-2009, 10:09 AM
Actually, that is reflected light. The steel reflects the yellow of the bands, the black metal, the snow, and also a bit from the surroundings (In this image, they are imagined to be white.) I may have exaggerated a bit in this picture, as the face reflects a little yellow from the tail's band.

The dark right next to light- shading is also a metally effect, this time simulating the chromelike sheen. Earth is usually darker than the sky, so the metal reflects some of that.
The feraligatr has reflected light too, but it is far less prominent.

Yeah, I should've highlighted more. In my mind the black parts are iron and the silvery parts are steel... :P So I should have highlighted both. *mind wanders*

Lars The Turtwig
10-02-2009, 11:25 AM
You know what I find funny? Your post count grew from 8 to 56 in 2 days. Ironic. And because of this thread....

...Anyway, is the thing I requested possible?

Ymedron
10-02-2009, 01:35 PM
Yeah, it's pretty funny.

Yes, I'll do that after I finish FMC:s request. :D

Edit: Okay, here are the poses:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Rinnaposes.jpg
I couldn't pick just one pose without asking you first- What would you prefer? :3
You can also make requests about the style of the umbreon- here I used the acorn-shape head and simple eyes.

Umm..... Anyway, could you create a garchomp in a jump pose, with his left arm upwards, in a slash pose, with an agressive look on his face(yea male, but don't cut the fin please).

P.S. Could you make several sketches so I can choose? Please?

Ymedron
10-03-2009, 07:39 PM

I might take a while with this one, since Im watching reviews and leveling my pokemon in Fire Red. (I've spent about 200 hours just leveling about... 60 different pokemon I have.)

Your art looks very interesting, Ymedron. I love the way you do shading, and it's especially good compared to mine. What program do you use for the drawings? (Or are they drawn on paper and then scanned and colored?) Maybe I just need to spend more time on mine... I don't know what else to say, though, because everyone's already said it... the poses are very creative, though; they're usually something that I have a problem thinking of.

I'd like to see some art, please. :) How about... an Espeon, sitting down, with very lightly colored eyes... her color is a bit darker and more blue than usual. She has her left paw up, rather like a dog shaking paws with someone, and her tail is curled up slightly.

Thank-you in advance.

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Garchompjump.jpg


Urgh... Im kind of afraid these don't really suit me(first time something you made didn't suit me!). What I meant was with the claw straight upwards, the left downwards, the other claw downwards, the head looking upwards with the mouth open. I hope this is easier to understand...(shame I has no scanner)

Ymedron
10-03-2009, 09:58 PM
Darksong:
Thanks!
About the process...
First I do a quick sketch, then I scan it into Photoshop, ink and color in. I don't use any fancy brushes, but I do use the flow-option at 20 to do the soft shading.
The inking is done with a 3px or 4px brush, with a texture-overlay. (It looks sort of like a plank-wall, because I learned from somewhere that it sharpens the lines a lot. ;3)

Okay, I'll start doing that espeon along with the Garchomp! :D

TwiggyFV:
Unfortunately I don't really get that explanation...
Would it be a bit like the pose number 1, with the right claw from the pose 2 and the left claw from the pose 4 with it tilted a bit upwards?

Lars The Turtwig
10-03-2009, 10:01 PM
Err...Somewhat like aggron's pose, only with the face upwards(a little), chest and stomach the "reader's" way, legs also, and the tail not so much seen.

(I wish I had a scanner to explain...)

Ymedron
10-03-2009, 10:04 PM
And it should still be jumping?
That's quite hard to envision...
Maybe you could do a simple stick-figure in Paint? (Use different colors for all the limbs and the spine, if you would? :P)

Edit: Well, here is a picture I made for myself. (Because I haven't been doing them for myself lately at all. :D)

10-04-2009, 08:03 AM
Umm... While im looking for a way to upload the rough pose I made in paint, could I swap my request?

If so, could I have a a human-feraligatr fusion in the form of a kid wearing a long sleeved shirt, white with black stripes, long, grey pants, with light-blue/tan(combined) skin, a long tail, and monstrous hands(with claws and all).
The figure should be with the back to the one looking at him(or rather, it), looking towards the 'readers' sopicously(darn spelling), and covered in a blue aura, holding a sword in his left hand, and ice covering his right hand. ((somewhat like the Pt male ace trainer, not the ice area one))

Thanks in advance.

Ymedron
10-04-2009, 08:55 AM
Okay, I'll try that. (Though humans aren't my strongest area, but let's see how it turns out.)

PS: Use photobucket.
You'll need to make an account there, though. (And, that way you can upload the pictures you are using into your own account so that my bandwith doesn't run out.)

http://www.photobucket.com (http://www.photobucket.com/)

Lars The Turtwig
10-04-2009, 08:58 AM
I've created an account, but how do I upload stuff?

Ymedron
10-04-2009, 08:59 AM
There should be the gallery link somewhere, and when you get there there is the big upload-button.
And it will request you choose the pictures. (You can choose multiple ones with control, and then press "open")
Don't mess around with the tags, it's just so people can find you better.

Lars The Turtwig
10-04-2009, 09:03 AM
Okay... It's uploading the thing right now.

P.S. If you're going to make the human-fusion thingy, could you make several options?
(in case you didnt understand what I meant)

Edit: I hope this works!

Edit2: Wow this really went out small... And I made it extremly big!
(strange)

Ymedron
10-04-2009, 09:08 AM
Yeah, I'll do.
I'll make just a sketch of the human for now, as Darksong's espeon is second on the list.

Edit:
Photobucket shrinks your pictures if they are really large.
You better take away all the white space around it. (THAT'S AN ORDER!) Khrmrm.

Lars The Turtwig
10-04-2009, 09:30 AM
Uh...take away?

Ymedron
10-04-2009, 09:32 AM
You know, move the picture so far left on the canvas and shrink the canvas so that the edges of the picture touch the garchomp.

There is no use for all that white space, after all.
Edit:
Here is the sketch- Im really bad at drawing people younger than myself, because I either make them too young for their age or too old. : < Don't mind the foolish proportions.

Sorry if Im confusing you.

So, first of all, the turtwig is just there to show how much paint sucks.
The garchomp was meant to show the pose for the previous request, but what im interested in right now is this sketch(the one in the quote!).
Anyway, pose 2 is better, but I dont really think that a kid should be bald...
P.S. When, or rather, If you will paint it, could you make it brown hair and eyes?

Ymedron
10-04-2009, 10:09 AM
Of course it isn't bald. :P I don't need to elaborate the sketch if it's just to pick the pose.
The face on the right was just to test whether or not I can create a satisfactory face for him.

Lars The Turtwig
10-04-2009, 10:17 AM
Hm.... The only face im able to paint is:
a) some low quiality anime style face.
b) Something with a disturbing nose.

Ymedron
10-04-2009, 10:18 AM
Are you satisfied with that face?
If not, could you describe his face a little better?
(PS: I can't color the human, since I need to color the Espeon, draw, ink and color the garchomp.)

Interesting trivia:
While i can draw umbreon quite well, Espeon has always given me a lot of trouble to do right. Why?
Well... While Umbreon is quite clear: Rabbit head with a dog body, Espeon is sort of a cat+desert fox... Depending on what you elaborate.

Lars The Turtwig
10-04-2009, 12:17 PM
Looks good, but, uh, is it possible to make him with curly hair, a less supicous(I guess angry doesn't look so good(maybe more happy)) look, and more stripes on the shirt?
Expect this, it looks pretty much great.
Edit: Err, and the neck is a bit too thick. It's not supposed ot be a super strong wrestler, it's a kid(fused with a feraligatr).

Ymedron

Well... While Umbreon is quite clear: Rabbit head with a dog body, Espeon is sort of a cat+desert fox... Depending on what you elaborate.

The head the Espeon looks a bit small for the body (or how well-muscled it is), and the ears are slightly narrow. Overall, the neck is slightly too long as well, maybe not for the pose... I'm actually not that good at criticism because I haven't had experience with a lot of different poses ...

Espeon always reminded me of a fennec fox.

Ymedron

I think all the suck on that espeon is because of the time I did it- I started drawing it at... 11 PM.

Okay, the garchomp is great, even if it looks a little like some random macho.

Great colouration and shading, so are the face and head.

Overall: 9/10


The first Aggron looks short, and seems to be drunk.
Shading is good.
Looks wimpy.

Overall: 6/10

The next aggron looks 2d, good shading, and strange pose. Don't like much.

Overall: 5/10.


Didn't have much time to write this.

Ymedron
10-08-2009, 08:21 PM
It's a good thing that he looks drunk and wimpy! :D After all, he needs to have a taste at those wines, so that the customers won't get bad ones.

Actually these two were a practice at characterization- To me, Aggrons belly brings to mind a barrel. So, I started thinking, 'What is usually connected with barrels..? Bums, beers, wines...' So, his design idea is that he is a poor drunk.

The second one is the second part of Aggron's design: A soldier/knight. The metallic armors bring to my mind a soldier, and it's restoring nature (dex says that they restore their territory after forest-fires and landslides) bring to mind a peaceful knight.

A third design would have been a middleground- Humiliated knight, who has started drinking. (but still packs a punch!) but alas, I didn't think of it when I drew them.

Im happier with the upper one, too, since it looks a lot more personable than the lower one. The lower one doesn't have any negative points or quirks... I like to think that the drunk beats him drunken fist-style.

Darksong
10-08-2009, 11:57 PM
The Aggrons still look a bit slim, but I guess that's your drawing style. I like the effects on the top one, how the horns and sharp parts of Aggron's armor are more dull to give a somewhat sluggish or loopy look. The expression is great. XD

As I said earlier, for the bottom one, the body and arms look a little too thin compared to the tail. But I love the pose on the lower one, and the fact that it looks like it's ready for anything. I've always admired Aggron, but this is plain cool. :)

Ymedron
10-09-2009, 05:39 AM
Yes, the slimness is part of my style- I often try to make the pokemon more the way I like it- And Aggron's barrely belly really doesn't do it for me. :P
The tail was too thick when I inked it- Why do I always notice the errors AFTER I've done revising it..? Oh well. I guess the proverb 'Art is not finished, it's just abandoned' is true. <:D

Thanks!

... ;;Sees this thread, stops her Art Commenting Train here;;

You're quite good, I must say. Talented~ Generally, this is just on a general thing. Now, let's get more specific.

Feraligatr Dude: The tail is very graceful and slim, I like that. You seem to have mastered how to draw hands! Oh, he's holding that sword quite well. That's something that's rare to see. Good job with the folds of the clothes too, and I can't see anything wrong here~

Espeon: The body's a bit too long. It kinda looks more like a tiger than an Espeon. It has that big cat structure... but I understand that you struggled to draw it and couldn't really tell what it was based off of~ The head appears a bit too small for the body though, and the front paws are a bit... bent at the top. They look more like back paws than front ones, if that makes sense. But you did a really nice job on the colouring, and I really like it otherwise~ So props for that.

Kurobbu and Myuuga - Oh my God. I really, really like this one. They look so sophisticated and graceful, the poses! It looks like they're getting ready to attend a fancy ballroom dance. I love Myuuga especially. Her expression and pose have the poise of a Persian, all right. And her tail only adds to it. As for Kurobbu, I really like how his helmet looks like a mask, it really gives that vibe that they're going to attend a masquerade ball.

Garchomp: Interesting pose, shading, and colours~ I love how you accentuated the abs and muscles with shading.

Bar Owner's Aggron: His expression. X3 It amuses me. He's /awesome/. Seriously. So full of personality. Let me just say that I find your idea about two different kinds of Aggron very interesting, it makes Pokemon more diverse based on how they were raised. Sort of like... dog breeds. They were trained to do different jobs, and have different appearances for their jobs. It seems like the same concept here. I find it really fascinating.

Military Aggron: I think the slimness really does give you the image of the military. He does look like he was trained to do combat, and a more offensive, sleek type. More highly trained than the second one. As has been previously stated, the tail is kinda thick, but otherwise, it is really good. And props on the straight horns, too~

*blush*
I smiled like en fool while reading it- people have rarely given me such a thorough compliment.
Im at loss for words right now, so I just say 'Thank you.'

Lars The Turtwig
10-13-2009, 03:51 PM
Well... Now he seems to have become a pretty-boy. :P I like him better that way, but I don't know about you:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/feraligatorboy3.jpg

Uh... I don't want to nerve, but is there a chance you had free time to color this?

..Also, you don't apparantice my crituqie? THAT'S NOT FAIR I PUT TIME AND THOGHT INTO IT EVEN IF ITS SHORT AND THE FACT IM 12 DOESN'T MEEAN MY CRITUQUE DOESN'T COUNT!
(sneaks away)

Ymedron
10-13-2009, 03:55 PM
Were you joking? :o

Compliment isn't a critique. :P While critique is immensely more helpful, an insightful compliment will make the complimented feel better about themselves.

So, I appreciate your critiques. ;D (But I haven't said that I didn't, have I?)

I'll try to color him, but Im not really experienced with coloring and shading the human body, so horrible accidents may happen.

Lars The Turtwig
10-13-2009, 04:03 PM
Uh... How about you make the skin a mix of the feraligatr's(the pokemon you mad!) and a light brown? Brown-red hair would look nice, and the clothes should be gray(expect the blakc stripes, of course).


And yay!(for making this.)

Ymedron
10-13-2009, 04:06 PM
So you want a steely skin? (It's basically what you get if you mix brown and turquoise, that I have tested. ;D) Unless you want it to have turquoise patches (which sounds kind of strange to me)
Should the red in the hair be present as stripes, red tips for the hair, red tint, or what?

I think you need to elaborate a bit.

Lars The Turtwig
10-13-2009, 04:27 PM
Red stripes on the middle of the head, the rest of the hair brown. Uh, make the skin light blue then(or whatever color you used for feraligatr)

Ymedron
10-13-2009, 04:28 PM
Okay, I'll start doing it. (I might also try out new techniques)

Lars The Turtwig

10-13-2009, 07:17 PM
Well, I've done a preparatory outline and been chilling for the rest of the evening, since I have to go visit a hospital tomorrow. (A 2 h ride to there)
Don't worry, I will do it even if you don't ask me about it. :P

Ymedron

NEW ART! Gasp!
Okay, I was in chemistry class, and we were talking about alcohols. :D When I saw the picture of the three primary alcohols: Methanol, ethanol and Propanol, I thought "Wow, those look like some creatures!" So, these three were born.
I don't have really good names for them yet. D:

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Methanolkopio.png
Methanol
Type: Poison
Ability: Levitation
Genderless
Egg-group: Can breed only with ditto

Dex entry: This pokemon has grown more common after humans have started to manufacture it. It feeds on lead and paint.

It often seeks out painted surfaces to feed on. This pokemon's saliva is known to be extremely poisonous.

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Ethanolkopio.png
Ethanol - Evolves from Methanol at level 30
Type: Poison/Psychic
Ability: Levitate
Genderless

Dex entry: The presence of this pokemon seems to cause strange behaviour in nearby humans. Some people find this state pleasurable.

It emanates a sweet scent which may intoxicate nearby insects and small birds. After drinking water this scent is weakened greatly.

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Propanolkopio.png
Propanol - Evolves from ethanol by leveling up while holding a Vial of Wine (Yeah, I know ;D)
Type: Poison/Dragon
Ability: Levitate
Genderless

Dex entry: This pokemon catches it's prey by spouting a large cloud of steam which makes the pokemon who breath it drowsy and dizzy. The steam is known to catch on fire easily.

It will grow restless when there is fire nearby- firemen use it to detect fires in a building. This pokemon's saliva is used as a solvent for some medicines.


This line's signature move is 'Intoxicating steam.'

Intoxicating steam
Type: Poison
Category: Other
PP: 5
Attack power: --
Accuracy: 60
Battle Effect: The target becomes confused, and after three turns falls asleep.

Super contest category: beauty
Super contest effect:
4 points.
Will appeal first the next turn.



;D I don't know if the move is overpowered or not- I think it's okay.

PS: I made some sprites just for the heck of it.

Lol. Anyway, I'm sure my fakemon could reach this quality if I had either a scanner or photoshop. but i can get access to these once a month.. -.-

Edit: Nice shading though!

Now for something completetly different:
Aeles is enjoying the forenoon hours in a new dimension.

http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Anewdimensionkopio.png

This character belongs to a story where his race (mountain elves) have found a way to breach into a space between the dimensions, Etherspace. Their ships are created from a substance they simply call 'black matter' though it looks more like dark blue gel. The black matter is forced into the veins of a potential pilot, and they have to convert it into energy. Several pilots die in the process, but the ones who survive are well rewarded: They get their very own ship, and are able to travel between dimensions.
At home they aren't allowed to use elemental magic at all, since the forced expanding of their energy pool usually makes their magic extremely volatile.
Aeles was a routine pilot, until he witnessed a brutal murder on one of the motherships. After panicking and escaping the ship, he was deduced the prime suspect and announced to be a criminal. He now searches for the real murderer, so that he can finally return home. (Which is easier than you think, since only a fraction of dimensions are suitable for elven habitation, and the others have no idea that other dimensions even exist.)

FireChao
11-01-2009, 10:08 AM
Love it. I really do.

Is his head supposed to have a weird glow around it - it looks a bit odd...

Regardless, the shading makes it simply gorgeous.

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 10:11 AM
Yeah, the weird glow is supposed to be the reflections on the wing. :P
I fail at trying to make them realistic. <D

The most trouble I had was with the trees- I tried to separate them so that it wouldn't be just a large mass of green... The trunks also.

Thanks for the comment. ;D

FireChao
11-01-2009, 10:32 AM
Please could you draw me a venonat please? I would give more specific instructions but I'm not really sure what I want :P

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 10:34 AM
Only draw or draw and color?
I still have the feraligatr to color, so it might take a longer while to color the venonat. :p

FireChao
11-01-2009, 10:41 AM
draw and colour please, but take as long as you like

thanks in advance.

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 11:07 AM
Allright. :3 I'll try to get it done soon.
Here is the ferali-boy. (I don't know about the quality.. It feels lacking. But on the other hand, I feel burnt out by this picture. D:)

FireChao
11-01-2009, 11:50 AM
definitely not as good as the image 6 posts ago, but it looks good. I'm not so sure the ice effect is that good - I've always imagined an ice punch would be a punch kind of glowing with icyness... whereas that look like he has his hand stuck is an ice cube. I really don't know how this could be improved, however - maybe if the back of the ice (the side nearest to his face) had no outline and faded out instead :P

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 11:53 AM
Well, Twiggy requested that the hand be encased in ice. :P I seriously don't know how to do ice- I tried to make up something to indicate icyness there.

It seems every second picture I make is a good one and then there is a bad picture in between... Ark.

FireChao
11-01-2009, 12:02 PM
well no it looks great for a hand encased in ice - I just though that if twas an ice punch it would look different

p.s. yay my picture is on track to be one of the good ones XD

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 12:03 PM
:P Though if it isn't, you'll still get a bonus sketch. (Aeles insists that he must be drawn more. ;D)

Edit: I did two versions again. The first one with black lines, the second one with gradient-purple lines.

It came out great! Well, the red stripe isn't that great, but the clothes, face, skin, and ice came out incredible! Since you put so much time into it(I asume) I won't critize it(lol).

Previous pic came out good(the elf stuff)

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 01:21 PM
Well... I put a lot of thinking into it at least. <: D
Seriously though, this pic was the most frustating one I've ever done. It took me three weeks just to get started doing it, and all the time I was bothered by the fact that I wasn't doing it. However, school drains you in a mysterious way, and when weekends came, I would rather watch videos and draw easier stuff instead. <D At least it's done now.

FireChao
11-01-2009, 01:27 PM
Love them. I think the one being held here looks better though:
http://i615.photobucket.com/albums/tt235/Ymedron/Dimensionmadness.jpg

I know I'm being a pain, but please could you photoshop up that pose (with colour et cetera)? I might make it my avatar...

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 01:28 PM
Just the venonat, right? :P Okay, I'll do it. Though the shading might be a bit simpler there.

You can put it into your signature or custom title, choose whichever one you prefer.

FireChao
11-01-2009, 05:24 PM
thanks a lot for these, by the way - I went with a cropped version in the end, but I'm still not completely sure which version would look best as my avatar...

11-01-2009, 05:31 PM
Well, the larger version shows off the more interesting parts- The shading etc. :P

Lars The Turtwig
11-01-2009, 06:12 PM
Uh... Any chance I could get you to create me an avatar of Lars as a torterra(with somewhat bigger horns and blue eyes), in a zoom in, somewhat like the pose your current avatar is, only that it is a little closer, the head covering most of the picture and some of the chest being visible? Thanks in advance! And if you accept this, please make a blue background, and maybe add the text I herd u liek torterras "Cookies?".

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 06:16 PM

Lars The Turtwig
11-01-2009, 06:51 PM
Um... well, maybe in the pose of your avatar, with an angry look, and the left leg lifted. His body is towards the left side(somewhat like your avatar, I guess)

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 06:53 PM
I would like to do a mirrored version, since I dislike having a 'series pose' avatar. (As in, several avatars in the same pose, with a different character. It cheapens the effort put into it.)

Lars The Turtwig
11-01-2009, 06:54 PM
D'aaaw. Well, I might make the pose in ms.paint(but it will suck)

Ymedron
11-01-2009, 06:55 PM
Okay. I'll have the left leg lifted, then. :o

Thorne
11-07-2009, 07:13 PM
I would ask if you could draw something for me, but right now I don't know if you're busy or not, and sometimes I get the feeling I sound kinda rude when I do it.

So I shall try to gives some critique first, which is hard when whoever is drawing is a lot better then me and probably know what they are doing, but I'll try.

@ that Hedai picture: It's kinda hard to judge the gender of this gijinka, but my current guess is that it is a boy, seeing that it's Clefairy/Clefable, that's not really something bad, thought. I like how you made the hair look so natural while it's still rather damn unnatural.

Lol actually hedai is a girl. >D I just can't draw girls...


I think the problem is the shape of the face, if you ask me, it's just a bit too round. I was guessing that she was a girl at first, but then I came to the conclusion that you might be one of those people who like having very androgynous Pokémon and guessed that it was a boy.

FireChao
11-07-2009, 07:30 PM
I thought the left one was a girl and the right one way a boy

The problem there is that I can't paste anything to drawchat. ;O; !

FireChao

what exactly is drawchat?

Ymedron
11-08-2009, 10:03 AM
It's a flash-program in ratemydrawings.com site. :D
There are others at the same drawing-board, and you can chat and draw together. Also, if you want to draw with a limited group, you can create a room, with or without a password.

Mwah.

Ymedron... please could you draw me a banner for my site? (http://firechao.com/)

Here's the current banner:
http://firechao.com/Images/main_banner.png
-it's not too impressive. I was thinking of having the next banner with smaller text.

So, could you draw me the fiery chao creature above on an 800px wide by 200px high image with a transparent background (so I could add something behind the image if I wanted)

You could draw the title on the image, or give me the drawing and let me put a title on it.

I wouldn't like the drawing to be cut off on either side (it could be on the top and bottom, though...)

If you do decide to help me, please could you post a sketch of the banner so that I can feed back and make sure you have understood what I was asking for - There's no point in you colouring it in if it's not what I wanted!

If I decide to use the banner draw the chao, you will be credited at the bottom of every page that uses the banner

Thanks.

EDIT: I realised that all you need to do is draw me the chao reasonably big (eg 400px tall?) - I can then resize it and add text/ bakgrounds etcetera, while saving your drawing - then I can easily improve the banner

Ymedron

So, I'll just update the art?
Pretty much, please

Any special requests for shading?
I'd like some shading to be added on to the chao (the chao you can see there on the current logo has no shading at all), and I guess you could make the fire look better (possibly more realistic if you think it would look better that way - it's just a logo so realism isn't necessary), but I have no ideas more specific than that.

I guess it'd be nice if they were a tiny bit more awake... but preferably without making them aggressive.

Okay, shall i have them fully open or a bit more open?

a bit more open, please - you could post another sketch if you're unsure of exactly what I want

I luff the torterra, even if he looks a little depressed and is overshaded.


May I ask for another something?

(Overshaded in what lighting conditions?)

Okay, though I might not be able to complete it... D:

A) Overshaded is when too large parts of the body are shaded, but mainly when a certain part is much darker than it should be.

B) Could i have Lars(turtwig), in a pose somewhat like the Pt sprite's, with a muscle band wrapped around each of his legs?

If so, *asks for a few choice sketches for safety*

Hmm... D: I think I might have been drawing too much Lars lately... xwx'' Maybe some time later, tho.

Firechao, I did a lineart, are these eyes ok?

They look good to me - as I'm feeling rather perfectionist about it, I'll mention that I'd like it if its expression looked a little less stressed, but it's very good like that!

p.s. thanks for putting up with my incessant grumbling XD

Hmm... o,o Would he look better if his upper lid were rounded and/or his lids weren't drawn there?

FireChao

maybe - I think the problem is that the lines above his eyes make it look like he has a "furrowed brow" (couldn't think of a better way to put it)

Okay, I'll do it soon. :3 Im having a break now tho.

EDIT:

-Please could the "CYmo" credit be made smaller so that it fits on to the foot? You will be credited in the footer of all pages either way... maybe you could even just give me a "CYmo" water mark that I could put in the corner of the banner or next to the drawing - its up to you.

-Also, as I'm happy with the whole drawing except the eyes, Pease could you draw it without eyes and then try lots of different eyes on it to give me a range to choose from - or at least save a copy with no eyes so you can easily change his expression if I ask.

Thanks so much for drawing this for me.

Oh, sorry, I didn't see the edit. D:

(The C was just put in there quickly because Im paranoid and I don't want peeps stealing the lineart... ;W; That might happen. I'll put it somewhere else once Im finished.)


I don't really have an idea of what kind of eyes do you want... It's a lot easier for me if you give me guidelines. (The original artwork nor the screen aren't really helpful, since the eyes are just half-circles.)


Im being so slow again, so as an apology, here is an evolving-adoptable bulbasaur:

Uh, CYmo, I've got a question- I've been drwaing a lot lately, and yesterday I had a chance to upload one(okay four) of my pictures on the computer. So my question is: could you by chance 'shade' one of these, errm, creatures?
