Hello peeps, hope everyone is as well as can be, and thank you for indulging my weird Gen. 1 Beta/Fakemon thing. It was definetly something that happened (I had fun anyway).

Tomorrow I’m gonna start on the Gen. 2 Beta which I think will be a lot of fun, which hopefully you guys will enjoy/tolerate as well! Gen. 1 Beta was very scrappy info-wise so I tried my best to come up with meta info to help give you guys an idea of how I imagined they would interact with the world and with other Pokemon, but since Gen. 2 Beta is much more defined I’m going to be leaving that info up to interpretation for those who care to do so. (No more “keep reading” links and walls of nerd text).

I will be changing the names of a few Pokemon to help give them a bit more of an identity for the sake of my redesign project, so again, sorry not sorry to purists!

What I will be doing:

  • Redesiging cut Pokemon who didn’t make it to the main game 
  • Redesiging canon Pokemon with altered appearences 
  • Redesiging canon Pokemon with altered types 
  • Redesiging canon Pokemon with altered names but the same appearence will be case-by-case

What I won’t be doing:

  • Redesiging literally all of them because some Pokemon were unchanged between Beta and release (Natu, Donphan, Steelix, Ho-Oh, etc.)

I know Sword and Shield is around the corner but I figure this would be a fun way to kill time, and also I want time for myself and you guys to get familiarized with the Galar Region as well all the new Pokemon. I think the redesigns will feel more effective if we give the game some breathing room rather than tackling it immedietly. If Gen. 2 Beta is dragging for too long though I’ll put it on pause and we can return to it after Gen. 8 is done. 

If you want some more info on Gen. 2 Beta check out the archive on The Cutting Room Floor!  From my understanding they were the ones who found out all this info as well as gave the Pokemon names based off what they translated so I’m very thankful they have this info out there. 

Also a thanks to AnbuWeegee on reddit for sharing this nice infographic!

ProtoPokemon will have to be bumped over a day.

Pokemon Redesign #209-210 – Snubbull, Granbull

So throughout my Pokemon Redesign stuff, the only redesigns I went back and changed really hard were Pikachu and Raichu, twice, and even then, they definitely don’t have the same charm as their mascot-tier counterparts. XD

But the redesigns aren’t really meant to be better, equal or whatever to the original Pokemon. I love Pokemon, most of my brain is devoted to just remembering all of them and thinking about how great they are, and of course my weird ass designs don’t come close to world’s most successful franchise. I did this as a sort of way to express how I feel about Pokemon and to challenge myself with a conceptual-sort of project, viewing each Pokemon as a drawing prompt in a way.

I did some off the cuff, while I was sick with the flu, while I was sleep deprived and while I was having panic attacks. Some are just products of their time and they of course won’t look as good as my newer work, but very rarely do I go back and change a redesign, what’s done is done, but for some reason, my Granbull redesign kind of bothered me. I liked the idea but I felt like it lost how I feel about Granbull, so for the 3rd time I’ve gone back and changed a redesign.

I think now I can safely say I’m fully satisfied with my redesign project. I’ve been really enjoying doing the proto Pokemon as obscure as they are, and I still plan on doing Sword and Shield of course, and we’ll see what happens after.

Thanks for everyone who still follows my work, redesigns or otherwise. You have all my gratitude if you took some time to check out my stuff, and if you enjoyed it, even just a little, means the whole world to me. I wasn’t expecting to get mushy over Granbull but I am so whatever. C:

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
We will be doing a bundle giveaway during pre-orders! So stay tuned for details when the time arrives!!!

I’m going to be apart of this lovely Breath of the Wild zine! A lot of crazy talented folks are going to be apart of it as well so you should definitely check it!

A lot of folks are working hard on putting this together and in the end it’s gonna be a spectacular collection of pieces featuring our love for this stellar chapter in The Legend of Zelda series. Give it a follow so you can be up to date when you can grab a copy! C:

Hello peeps, this is very uncharacteristic of me and I’m doing it for no good reason but I just wanted to say hiya since despite posting literally everyday I feel like I’ve been kind of distant. 

Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for everyone who actively follows my work and are invested in my dumbo projects. I see most comments (I think) in replies, reblogs, and tags, and I appreciate people taking the time to look and write about my stuff. I’m still flattered that anyone cares what I do on here and all the other places I post my work.

I feel like Tumblr’s changed a lot since the purge and my feed is definitely a lot more barren than it used to be. With how all these websites are fixing stuff that ain’t broke, I really wish there was a safe haven for both artists and viewers alike that wasn’t so wishywashy or unpredictable. That being said, my ass is firmly planted on this website and I’m still very happy people here enjoy my work!

So yeah, wanted to say you’re all rad, and anyone who’s out there trying to make or do their own thing regardless of how chaotic everything is right now, keep on doin’ you. 

Also if you wanna see some cool shit, I would recommend following @goat13, @jboh-art, and @cortoonyart. Their art is very unapologetically their own thing and they’re among some of my favourite artists on the interwebs. I don’t got many mutuals but I see your stuff and you’re doing great!

I dunno why I made this, don’t think anyone particularly cares but yeah, stuff, things. Cool cool. 

Thank you everyone! Your support over the past 3 years has meant the world to me, and now we’ve finally caught up with the National Pokedex. 

I’ll be taking a break from dailies for about a week or 2. I’ll be around and posting art as it’s done and dailies will be back with prototype Pokemon designs until I’m ready to start Sword and Shield.

I can never say thank you enough for being here when you didn’t have to be. This project has helped shape who I am today and I’m blessed to have had all the support I’ve gotten. 

All the best! 

Heya everyone! Hope you’re doing as well as can be and hope you enjoyed my take on the Guardians of Alola! c:

Just wanted to give a heads up that I’m going to be doing the Cosmog line a bit differently then most evolutions. Tomorrow I’m going to do Cosmog and Cosmoem together, then next Pokemon day in the daily schedule I’ll do Solgaleo and then Lunala respectively.

If I do it this way I wont be overwhelmed with daily work and also we’ll get a better design overall since I’ll be able to give each flagship Pokemon their own drawing session, rather then trying to squeeze them all in at once.

I think this makes the most sense, quality over quantity and all that stuff. It’s basically what I’ve done for every legendary that has form changes but this time its evolution stages so I don’t think that’s a big deal. 

Thank you all and I hope you have an amazing week!

Hey everybody! I got a cozy room and I’m back to my daily schedule! Hope you’re all doing well and in for some weird stuff as usual. C:

Hello! Hope everyone is doing as well as can be! 

TL;DR – Alolan Starters are coming at you all in a row and then I’m gonna be on my last foreseeable hiatus for a while unless something dire happens

Long Version – So it probably seems strange I keep taking these sort of frequent hiatuses from my dailies. I don’t go into my personal life too much just because I feel like there are more important things for any of you to worry about, but I feel like I want to briefly explain myself, since I imagine to long time followers it probably seems weird that I’ve been around nearly consistently for a few years and suddenly I’m breaking every couple weeks. 

I spent most of my January dealing with a death in the family, and after that I had to help my family out with a lot of things and now I’m preparing for a big move. The move has been happening slowly but sometime next week I’ll finally have time to settle into the new place. While I don’t think it will take me too long to adjust, I’m unsure how long I’ll be gone– my current guess is a little over a week starting from whenever I gotta vamoose. So I looked at my schedule I decided I would do my best to get all the Alolan starters done so we aren’t leaving that up in the air awkwardly.

 I’m not getting tired of doing the dailies by a long shot so no worries there. Drawing has sort of become my comfort place at the end of the day but unfortunately these couple months I’ve been literally away from my tech and also sometimes I need to turn into a pile of sludge and reform myself. I’m gonna try my best with these starters, deal with what I gotta deal with, find some zen time, then come back. 

 Thank you for being you. c:
