I did this back in 2006 when I was 16, but at that time I wasn't uploading stuff. Also, I feel this is a great piece and isn't so much of an "older style" thing.
This is my version of the picture from a Ninetails Pokemon Card I own, and I thought it was cool because Ninetails was in an ocean wave of some sort, instead of a fire or forest background.
I sketched the outline on roughly 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper from a sketchbook, and then colored everything with oil pastel crayons. I really like how it turned out, especially since I have only done one other oil pastel drawing before this one, a lion cub for a high school art class.
I am willing to do other pieces like this in the future, when I find my oil pastels (hidden somewhere in a closet).
