A (slightly belated) birthday present for the one and only Katie aka Linkachu - I’m sorry it’s a bit late, but I wanted to fine-tune it as much as I could before releasing it into the wild.
So there she is, in Raichu-themed armor, riding her Mega Houndoom, Galavera, into battle in the wilderness of… Filgaia? Kalos? Somewhere, anyway. Because that’s just the sort of thing Katies do. ♥
It suddenly occurred to me that my avatar aside, there is not a single picture on this art blog of the creature it was named after! This had to be remedied - and I was long overdue for drawing one of the things
Wisteriark, the Deep Forest Pokémon - is a Grass/Crystal-type Pokémon native to the Miato Region and the final stage of what would be considered the region’s ‘Pseudo-Legendary’ line. They (and the rest of their line) are exceedingly rare and are depicted as mysterious guardian spirits. With their keenly honed crystalline blades and claws, their leaflike wings, their multitude of vines and their manes - which resemble drapes of wisteria - they have an imposing presence on the battlefield, as graceful as they are deadly.
They’re also kind of a pain in the posterior to draw considering how bloody detailed they are.
But I love them anyway. XD
I got hit by a random urge to draw a Steel-type Eeveelution with some kind of biometallic plating. This thing happened. ^^

Every once in a while I get hit by an urge to doodle the most phenomenally random shite.
And then I end up filling a whole page with complete and utter what.
This was one of those times.
I admit - I was THOROUGHLY disappointed with the Goomy line. I had high hopes for some kind of awesome Glaucus Dragon… and what did we get instead? Puff the Magic Dragoonite. »;
So I tried to salvage the thing and turn it into some kind of awesome slug dragon with some Prosauropod inspired anatomy - and the little swarm of Goomy (
goomy pls) surrounding it just sort of happened. xD No Sliggoo because I couldn’t really feasibly fit it there.
I felt like drawing Aromatisse in my style because I dunno, I find something fundamentally amusing in the idea of Burlesque Dancer Jim Hanson/Brian Froud Goblin Things, Can-can-ing about and generating clouds of scented vapor like an over-sized powder puff.
And they ended up looking like a pair of quasi-avian witches having a conversation about something. Probably about how retarded their X-version counterpart is.
"Creampuffs." "PFFF. I know, right?"
(They’re Skeksis and they know it)
My favorite Telefang 2 Denjuu line by a long shot, the Tectus line. Probably not difficult to tell why - they’re weird opabinia-cephalopod things! ^^
Because this blog does not have NEARLY enough Telefang on it!
My initial reaction to Quilladin was what the eff?!
It took me a few days to get over the sensation as the design slowly settled down in my head, when I finally figured out that it’s honestly just another case of over-stylization (that is to say, Sugimoritis). After all, the entire line is supposed to have a hedgehog/chestnut theme (And that makes sense - chestnut shells do look like hedgehog quills, kind of) and the Warrior/Knight archetype.
So I drew it as some kind of hedgehog warrior with a thick coat of greenish quills… and it actually works now.
The leafy sword and shield were sort of my own touch, though. Because as a knight it’s almost inevitable it’ll get Leaf Blade eventually. XD
So I drew a Tyrantrum. Because while the design isn’t bad, the terrible case of Sugimoritis it suffers from made it difficult for me to truly like it. Much better now.
Ceci n’est pas une grenouille (or alternately: Oh Crap-aud)
Part of a massive compilation of dumb things I doodled today and felt like quickly coloring.
Many thanks to HL and Richard for the translation.
For the non-French speakers among us, like me, the text reads “When no one was looking, Frogadier stole forty baguettes. He took 40 baguettes. That’s as many as four tens. And that’s terrible.”
(And yes, I know, that’s never 40 baguettes on that cart. There’s only so many I can feasibly stick on there!)
