Wuddup tumblr! Been busy thumbing out some storyboards this week. I HAVE LEARNED SO MANY THINGS! I promise to show my finished boards eventually but until I get to that point, here, have some of my warm-up figure drawings from this past week! Ranging from 30 seconds to 10 minutes. c:

This seemed like a supa-fun character design exercise, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I ended up getting sword, tall, perky, Chinese, and big cat (went with tiger).

I hope more artists on my list do this! I wanna see what y’all come up with! c:

Yesterday’s sketch_dailies subject was mermaid, so I had to go for one of my favorite fish and draw up a lionfish mermaid. I figured the spikes were kinda punkish, so I tried to go for a sweet mowhawk kinda deal. Also, total change of pace— real media! Markerrrrsss. A panic attack in a stick for perfectionists if there ever was one!

Happy Valentine’s day, tumblr! I hope you’re all enjoying it. Here is a warm-up doodle of how things are gonna go down tomorrow on discount candy day. Just think of me as a dragon, sitting upon my mountain of candy. YOU CAN LOOK, BUT DO NOT TOUCH.

Favorite Pokemon of all time: Meowth AND Nidoking.
AHHHHHHH I’M FINISHED!!!!
Okay so I’m sorry not sorry, but I actually have two favorite Pokemon! Back when I first got into Pokemon as a 10-year-old, I was absolutely obsessed with Team Rocket, and that definitely has always stayed with me— still my favorites. I was actually, believe it or not, a huge CAT fan back in the day. So of course Meowth was high on my radar. I loved his character. As you can see from my collection, I am srs, haha. The only problem is… you can’t really battle very successfully with a Meowth, haha. Not without evolving it, anyway, which I always REFUSE to do on principle, thanks to Meowth’s history with Persians in the first few seasons of the show. >:c
Nidoking, on the other hand, is my favorite Pokemon to battle with. It was completely beneath my radar til I played Fire Red; I was really surprised at how integral Nidoking became to my team, and I actually LOVED using it. When Soul Silver came out, I ended up raising up a new Nidoking, this time named Elvis, with a timid nature who was quick to flee. I fell in LOVE with the idea of a big, lumbering, scary-looking Nidoking afraid of his own shadow. Elvis is my baaaaaby, oh my god I love him so much. I do actually have a Nidoking collection, but it’s much smaller due to the lack of merchandise (bottom shelf, center).
Anyway, here are Meowth and Nidoking, being cuties wearing flower crowns. Elvis is confused and doesn’t know what is on his head or why it is there, haha.

Day 17, favorite steel type: Lucario!

I was totally obsessed with Lucario when the movie came out. I started collecting it and everything! Fun fact, the 8th Pokemon movie is the last Pokemon movie I really bothered to watch or own. After that, I got bored. Haha.
