more favourites

More pokemon. Today's are random. I do love Meditite and Medicham though. Turned on my Pearl version for the first time in ages and found I had one in my team called Nana.

moar pokemons

I have a long history of naming pokemon after people/characters. Can you guess who my Roseila-soon-to-be-Roserade is named after?
[It's Holiday after Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's]

Quagsire is one of my favourite pokemon ever. I've used one in every game they've been catchable in since GS. My current one is called Odhran; one of my favourite names ever. I first heard it when I met a kid called Odhran Hayes-Brennan; I think he has an amazing name. I'm a bit jealous, even still. So I named a pokemon after him.

My pokemons, let me show you.

Drawing pokemon to waste time take a break from work. Did a Ralts for my facebook page for pokemon week. Then a Nidoking for Hideo because it was his birthday this week and Nidoking is his fav from the original 150.

With pokemon I was always disappointed with my apparent inability to stylize them in the way other artists do and make them cooler/cuter looking; instead favouring accuracy to the designs. SO HEY what you lack in talent and creativity, you can always make up in textures and photoshop, right?
As far as fanart goes, pokemon are pretty interesting to draw. I definitely want to challenge myself to looser, more personal representations of pokemon in the future.
