In Conclusion

It has been a great experience doing this countdown, and besides some weaker offerings here and there, I think it was very successful. I was able to accomplish my goal of completing a color illustration everyday for 151 days in a row. I lost a lot of sleep, but I think it was worth it.

I think my drawing skill have improved a little, but mostly my tolerance for stress has increased. I feel like I'm better able to budget time and stick to a schedule. I'm hoping to translate that to other personal projects, so watch out for those very soon. (I've been feeling terribly unproductive ever since I finished)

I'm going to be concluding this blog but watch my deviantArt account for more artwork, and keep an eye on my new blog Game Over Eater for my next major personal project.

Thanks again to all the wonderful people who've been following!

And as always, your critiques and comments are more than welcome.

But what about the game!

Oh yeah. So the whole point of this has been to celebrate the release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Saphire, so I figured that I should give my thoughts on the game itself.

To be honest, I'm not very far into the game. I've only got 3 badges right now, and I'll tell you why: Dex Nav.  This new feature is insane! I'm spending so much time scouring every route, not just for every Pokemon, but for versions of each Pokemon with all the special attacks they might have. (So many Skitties!)

I feel in the back of my mind that I shouldn't be doing this, because it's just going to make the game even easier (Taillow with Boomburst?!?), but I'm trying to really role-play this game and behave like I would if I were really there. I'm trying to experience it one step at a time instead of thinking about all the epic stuff I know is coming at the end (both in the story and in the post-game).

My only complaint about the game is the same old one you always hear: It's too easy. It doesn't hand hold you as much as XY, but I've still be breezing through all these gyms even with type disadvantaged Pokemon. I know to leave Exp. Share off this time, but it still seems unbalanced.
I don't know much about the post game (no spoilers), but hopefully there's something challenging there.

Again, thanks for reading, and have fun!

Thanks. I haven't had a chance to be very active over at OA lately. I think your art is already pretty amazing. I can't wait to go check out your assignments.

Are you trying to do every Pokémon in order?
EnigmaBerry Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2014
I'll be doing the first 151 at least. I started doing one drawing a day as a countdown to the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire this fall. I don't know what I'll do after that, but I might keep going or come back and do critiques/revisions of these. 

I'm in the process of moving these to deviantArt from by blog:
