so, i hope you all are doing well. i got a new pc, and i'm definitely not as active as i was before, but that is fine hehe.
i started working on this during the start of the pandemic. basically, i was browsing for my first time on /vp/ and i started showing some of my designs there. as a pseudo-artist, of course i had to listen to their (most of the time, poorly given) feedback.
the general opinion was centered around the idea of simpler designs > complicated designs, so my dex wasn't really well received there. however, i really was enjoying the whole interaction with other anons, so i tried to simplify my designs by portraying them as GBC sprites (if the design had too many color or too many small details, i had to sacrify those things for the sake of a simpler, cleaner sprite - basically forcing me to make something different).
this was really fun and i hope i can make more sprites or experiments like this in the future. i still wanna finish this dex someday, so if you really enjoying my art for some reason, then stay tuned
and by the way, i really miss interacting with you guys too, so if there is something you wanna ask or say (doesn't necessarily needs to be a good comment), please, say!
Wow, these fit the style really well, while also retaining the Elazulmax style, too.
Keep up the good work!
(My favs are still the not-koffing, egg chick, Zumbran wurmple lines and Hoothoot) :)
by the way, just to clarify - some of these designs are recycled, some are new and some old.
the chicken line is based on chickens and maracatu (nação, rural).
the star thing is a discarded regional bounsweet design based on starfruits and space/disco
the wurmple line is based on iara (brazilian folklore), the hoothoot line is slightly different but still based on the rasga-mortalha and the new meowth line takes inspiration from the legend of the onça-celeste.
