Holy crap, this is so beautiful! I love that you varied their colors, and the top-down perspective is very nicely done, although one of the horns looks more like a pearl hehe. The details in the flowers and petals, and ripples of the water, it's just all very graceful :)

Hehe, you're right, it looks more like a pearl. I know I still have a long way to go before my lights and shadows look realistic. Anyways, thank you so much for your nice words.

Since I'm getting back into art and experiencing with different mediums, I find I still like watercolour the best and it remains my favourite (not like acryllic, it hates me). I just love the quality and I think it fits with the fantasical world of Pokemon.
Also, I only ever kept one magikarp and it never did any good. :D

Haha, yes, magikarp is really useless. :D Do you play the new games (sun and moon)? I happened to get a Cosmog lately and trained it. One time, there was this magikarp, and it naturally could only use splash. And I attacked it with my Cosmog, which could do splash and teleport. x,D This was such a stupid battle. (Come to think of it - Cosmog might have won if I continued the fight, because magikarp would lack of the attacks PP first and due to that would have to use struggle until it's dead, right? :D)

Anyways, thank you for your nice words! Yes, watercolours are so much fun. <3 I wanted to leave a comment in your gallery but I couldn't find a watercolor-picture there? And don't worry about your acryllic skills. It hates everyone...

My computer broke so I can't really upload new artwork and besides, I may love watercolour but I don't think I'm good with it. :P I'll upload some anyways and get feedback. It was meant for an art contest but I missed the deadline and it made me so sad. :(

And no, I have never played the newer Pokemon games because I don't have the means to play it. I did get a gameboy when I was a teenager and played the fire one for a long time so I heard the music even when it was turned off. Even my sister heard it one time. Scary. :D
My Markicarp was so useless I didn't even bother putting it into battle, I used an exp sharing stone until quiting and putting it into a daycare. I think it only knew splash so it was a hopeless cause.

I'm so happy to see one of these from you again! It's been a while. They always brighten my day. And the Goldeen look very elegant :)

Can't complain! My jobs are keeping me busy, so I haven't had much time to draw for a while. Still figuring out that balance :)

I see. Maybe this might even be a good sign, since my best motivation for drawing is being really stressed out by work and people. So maybe time is kind of peaceful for you right now? :)
But I'd like to see some more art from you.
(Ah, and I hope you could understand me properly. I somehow feel like my second sentence is not written with correct English grammar...)

This is true! I tend to work better when I have time limits. I just need to carve out time for art, and stick to it! The same way I have a schedule for my violin practice time, and of course for work.
I actually thought you were a native English speaker, and did not realize you are from Germany. Your English is perfect. I was born here in the States, but my family is from Poland. Europe is very beautiful -- I wish I could visit more often. I go to see extended family there about every 10 years.
Sending best wishes to Germany from the United States! :DEflag:  :usflag:

Magikarp is a good pokemon
it evolves into Gyrados

Diaris Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, in Pokémon GO you need many many Magikarp to get a Gyarados. But in the regular games one is enough and all the others are just annoying if you try to catch something else. ;)
