Parasect by DrManiacal Parasect by DrManiacal
The most derp parasect.
I found this thing so hard to draw for some reason. Not very happy with the result honestly, but oh well.

Recording of the process can be found here: [link]

Yeah for sure, one of the very few pokes who learns a sleep inducing move with 100% accuracy. Thankfully it's so slow, otherwise this thing would completely break r/b/y haha.

Ahh, thanks. I haven't worked with texture much before so it was kind of an experiment. That and an attempt at making Parasect a bit more interesting lol. Going to try and use the technique more in the future though, peeps seem to like it.

Why aren't you happy with the end result? I think it's absolutely fabulous!
It is very detailed; I'm in love with the lumps and bumps you put on his claws! The colors are wonderful, not too harsh and not too faded. You have chosen a very decent pose for the Parasect, one that I feel that is unique as people seem to draw him in the same "side" position every time. In this one he's just leisurely making his way through Viridian Forest on a lazy afternoon :)

Thanks!
Basically I wasn't happy with it because I feel like I didn't put enough effort into the plants closest to the viewer, and also because I didn't spend enough time working with the pose. To me his legs and the way they connect to the body are very strange in this, but every reference I could find showed none of his underside. He always seems to be drawn from above with his legs and face sticking mysteriously out from under the mushroom, so I had to guess a little as to how he would look in a pose like this.

I like the plants up front even though you feel they aren't finished. I feel like they give a very good sense of movement because they are so scribbled. And the legs are attached a bit oddly to his underside, but! He IS a insect Pokemon and insect legs always attach a bit strangely. Also his would be attached a bit further up his sides because of how squat he is due to the mushroom.

Thanks! I couldn't think of what to do to make Parasect like, interesting looking so I tried to play with his design a little bit and give him that rough bumpy look. And also make him look like a derpass. lol

Haha XD It look great. What sort of atmosphere did you want to go with the environment? Something peaceful? Or dramatic?

At first I kind of visualized having him bursting out of some underbrush with lots of movement and color, but then I realized that Parasect probably would not be very mobile. So I settled on having him just chilling in said underbrush instead like a giant living mushroom probably would. Didn't want to abandon the bright color scheme I had in mind though.

If you're looking for something bright, then just add contrast XD Red/yellow flowers to contrast the green. Or something that's different in color :D

lol. I was going to scrap it last night but I decided it wasn't that bad. Parasect is just REALLY weird to me. The only thing I really hate about this now is how badly done the plants in the foreground are, haha.
