Charmander on the nature.

Charmander is a fire type, introduced in the first generation. He is my favorite fire starter pokémon.
Belongs to the Kanto region.

The environment was based from the N64 game "Pokémon Snap", the fire volcano.

Inspired from Twarda's work.

Wow, I really like this style! I can't imagine how cool Charizard would look like in this style.

I'm planning to do that in a different way.

Did you use a reference for this? I have a friend with an image with VERY similar features to this. She does not know what to think of it. (I sort of like this, BTW, but my friend is reluctant to ask about it.)

Yes, cause this was my first digital painting i look closer to Twarda's work, just for my eye can "scan" the work. The rest have no reference.

Ha, I thought so. This is pretty cool, of you ask me. I like your take on this.

Now, I feel a tad silly mentioning this... but she (Twarda) came to me and said that she was a little bothered that you didn't mention this in the comments. She can be a tad shy at times, believe it or not. She wasn't sure how to tell you this in person without feeling like she was being a little rude (or ungrateful that she had inspired someone's work). Would this at all be a problem?

Not at all, and check. Yeah, the desings are completely diferent and i never took class or nobody to teach me digital painting, so, i had to make the rest of work by my own. Twarda's charmander was a really help to start this.

I wouldn't go as far as to say classes are necessary. A little hands-on practice is always the best route, I think.

Well, but i have to take some classes if i'm going to an internship in disney. My level is still low...=/

Yeah, that is quite an aspiration there. But it looks as if you've gotten a fairly decent start. Good luck. Believe it or not, Good ol' Twarda there tells me she thinks her art is crap (her standards sometimes border on ridiculous, but it makes her a damned good critic). So, I guess there's always room for improvement no matter what.

I'm getting my first taste of a real art class tomorrow. But I'm only doing it because I'm interested personal improvement and as a hobby. My art form by far is writing, but having the ability to illustrate for it has been an interest for a long time. I doubt I'll take more than this Intro to Drawing class... I'm an Earth Sciences student, and these generally don't fit into such a schedule ^^;

Thank you.

I do like that you added something new, I like how you did the tail or how you worked on your backgrounds.
If you want to improve quicker, I suggest study real life, still lifes are really useful for learning how to manage colour and light, while animals are good to understand anatomy. All of this is helpful to create convincing pictures from imagination, or, here, to create believable realistic pokemon :)

Thank you for your advice, and actually i'm studing textures, anatomy, backgrounds. Someday i will have your skills :).

Keep doing awesome art. Big Fan.
