#151: Mew by Ahkward #151: Mew by Ahkward
So rare that it is still said to be a mirage by many experts. Only a few people have seen it worldwide. / When viewed through a microscope, this POKéMON's short, fine, delicate hair can be seen.

- Pokedex R/B/Y



So it seems this is the beginning of some fanart for me. I am starting to build some art to sell since there is a good chance I'll be able to go to Denver Comic Con! I also need to do at least one fanart a month for my Patreon.

www.patreon.com/AhkwardKat

If you'd like the full resolution, please consider pledging! Full size is 11x17 inches or 3300x5100px! That's a lot of art for only 2$! I'll be handing this out, along with all my other artwork on the 1st or 2nd of October! :la:

Hope you like it!

Next is Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur! Any suggestions for the pokemon after that?

It somehow reminds me of that Ancient Mew trading card :)

I love the shape of the mew, It's so cute and pudgy.
I also love the texture of the image

It really is. It's not one of my all time faves, but it certainly has a certain appeal to it, doesn't it? XD

The texture was done with quite a few layers. It was work it though to have it work out as well as it did though.

How nostalgic, MEW ! ;u; 

This really brings me back to that moment early in the first movie where they show that ancient wall carving with mew displayed on it ;u; I think you have captured that moment here so well. I love the textures and the colors you used for depicting mew here ! Also, those leaves look great ! I love the lighter outline around them c:

Yeah! That was one of my main inspirations! I went back and watched this movie since I have it on DVD. It was really fun to go back and draw something that had such as impact on my childhood. The outline was done with a simple layer effect via the stoke effect. XD

Houndoom would be cool! Or Rayquaza! :O or if you want a big evolutionary line, you could consider the Eeveelutions! :O!!!! -fangirlingsohard-

YAS, Houndoom is DEFINITELY on my list to do since it is my fave.

I don't, personally care much for the eevee lines and they are SO OVERDONE, but I know they would do well at a con. lol

Yeah, I get what you're saying c: You should go for Cubone!! They're so cute and sad! ;o; I can't remember their evolved form, but I love Cubone xD It would be different from a fire/dark type like Houndoom. ;w; (Which, I can't wait to see your Houndoom. I may just run around the house screaming in joy because I love your art, and to see one of my favorite Pokemon in an art style like yours would be amazing xD <3)

You should do Scraggy in my biased opinion but I'm pretty sure no one else wants to see one ;n;

If I think of your followers, probably Arcanine or any other canine-y pokemon :3

*whispers* Noibats are pretty cute too right? Right? 
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
I could do a Scraggy if you want one! :la:

I honestly don't like the noibats lol, but I know that they are popular.

Scraggys are actually super popular from what I've seen (not sure about dA but generally) so it wouldn't be a bad idea hahah. I sketched so many of them but then I forgot about them for a bit, I should finish those one of these days *v* But yeah they're one of the pokes made into a bunch of toys and readily available, unlike a lot of others. I mean even Ash has a Scraggy.

Wow, just wow, saw this as a sketch and some BG made, but this!? Wtf girl !! Very beautiful!!! <3

Oh Xerneas and Yvetal would be a nice contrast of life and death in a painting, or maybe Arceus and the creation trio on one memorial. (as in the beginning of space, time and antimater to create the universe. And some Unown hieroglyphs as the story of creation. That would be AWESOME)

Yeah! It really didn't take long at all to finish this picture!


I don't know much about the 4/5/6 gen pokemon, I'll have to do some research! I would love to do one with Entei and the Unown all together!
