That lovely picture is drawn by :iconcheshiremon:

Hey, I'm Glen-i! You found my DA page. Go, you!

I used to make Flipnotes, but here you'll find the stuff I drew on Art Academy and Colours 3D.

I'm a hobbyist artist, most definitely. Mainly because I am horrendously slow at drawing. All of my pictures these days are done by hand on my 3DS using Pokemon Art Academy.

Go on, have a look, leave a comment or two. I'll eventually read them all.

Hey there. Yeah, yeah, I'm quite absent these days. Life keeps getting in the way. I assure you, I am working on something a little bigger than one picture. So I hope you can be patient a while longer.

As well as that, I've also started reviewing games for a small site called N-Europe. Yes, it does feel surreal. Anyway, I thought I'd share a shameless plug in the hopes that some of you read it. It's for the Switch version of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

I frequent the forums there often, so you can easily get in contact with me there if you want.
Around the Campfire
Hey there. Long time, no post. I've been pretty busy lately.
I also can't think of a better title for this. Sitting there for 10 minutes with nothing.

Those of you who actually read my descriptions will know that I have a handful of Pokemon characters I draw too often. This picture depicts 2 of them, Jasper the Marowak and Dalbert the Feraligatr.
What you might not have guessed is that I have quite a few backstories (and regular stories) for them.

The problem is, I really struggle with actually coming up with ways to get those stories across to you guys. I don't have the tools or skills to do a comic, which would have been my preferred way of doing so. And it really bugs me.

So I've been thinking of using literature to get it across, or in other words, fan fiction. But I'm kinda concerned that most of you wouldn't want to read it. I mean, most of you don't even read the descriptions on my pictures.

Going for a written form of media would help to reduce the amount of pictures I would need to draw. I would still draw some pictures to go along with it, so I'd still be able to put some pictures to it. But I wouldn't have to draw the large amount a comic demands and I wouldn't have to worry about putting it all together somehow. Which would save a lot of time that I don't have.

But yeah, those are my thoughts on the subject. If you read that, thanks.

Either way, this picture is based on a story that focuses on Jasper, who finds something that could be linked to his past, so Dalbert travels with him to try and find out what that is. I won't go into more detail, just in case I do go ahead with the written story.

Look, I'm drawing fire again. I don't think I'll ever get the hang of it, but it does allow for some really interesting lighting. Not only that, there's a simple background as well! Wow...

Gabumon
Hello again. It's been a while, sorry.

Remember when I said that I could count the number of Digimon I could remember off of the top of my head on one hand? Yeah, Gabumon is the second one.
...And the final one... Yeah, I really don't know a lot.

You know, until I drew this. I never knew that Gabumon is actually a reptile. It seems obvious in hindsight. But doesn't Gabumon evolve into some kind of werewolf? How does that make a lick of sense!? See, that's one of the many issues I have with Digimon. No sense to most of it.

Oh well...

Guess who's been playing way too much Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate? That's right, this guy!

Sorry about the lack of pictures. Inspiration will strike and then I'll be uploading stuff. Hopefully soon.
Agumon
OK, I'm sure out of the few people who do watch me, there has to be some fans of the Digimon franchise, so I'm just gonna pre-empt anyone who might get too excited.

You could literally count the Digimon that I know on one hand. I am not a fan in the slightest, so don't bother asking me any questions about my thoughts on it, my favourite Digimon, etc. You're just gonna get the text equivalent of a blank stare.
So why now? ...No idea... Can't just draw Pokemon all the time, I suppose.

I admit, it's weird that I have the most minimal of interest in Digimon. There's no denying that I'm a die-hard Pokemon fan and I'm certainly open to a good "Monster-training RPG" game. But there's a few things about Digimon that just put me off.

I watched the whole first series of the TV show waayyyy back in the 90's when I was around 9. But it got very, very repetitive much quicker than Pokemon did and I just dropped off when the second one started. So not a great first impression.

And I know I'm at risk of showing my ignorance here, but why are so many of the more powerful Digimon mechanical or human looking? It just gets very silly and nonsensical and it's the biggest barrier to me giving it a go.

Oh well, enough griping. In the mire of nonsense Digimon is, there are some designs I really like. Designs like Agumon, who'd make a perfectly good Pokemon, if it wasn't for the name.
In my pre-picture research, I found some early artwork for Agumon, and holy crap, he was a veiny bugger, wasn't he? Massive veins all over him. Was that supposed to be cute? It was kinda gross. They got rid of those pretty sharpish and he looks all the better for it.
I keep looking at Agumon and he reminds me of Totodile, it's probably the head shape.

I really like how this picture came out, I tried adding more lines to help define the shape of Agumon's anatomy, what do you guys think? Not really what I normally do, so I'm sure there's some mistakes.

Woah, this description went on a bit long, huh? Thanks for actually reading that. Let me finish this up with a request for you awesome description-reading people!

If any of you Digimon fans have a Digimon that you think I'd enjoy drawing, let me know about it. I'm certain there's good designs buried in there, but I wouldn't know where to begin looking.

Yeah, I'm OK. I've been too busy to really get much drawing done recently. And whenever I do, I don't make much progress.
I've actually started doing some gaming reviews on a small little website. So that eats into my free time as well.
Thanks for enquiring though, I have been kinda neglecting DA a tad and I want to try and stop that.

Phew, I'm glad to know you're safe and well at least! And I know the feeling, I'm so swamped with work that whenever I get the chance to just relax I'd rather just play stuff and then nothing gets done (though that will change soon hopefully).
You doing game reviews? That sounds awesome!!! Like, gaming journalism? Or just as a hobby? Either way I'd love to give them a read if you toss a link my way!

But yeah! Really stoked to hear from you again man, thanks for getting in touch! :'D

Thanks, it's always nice to get some reassurance from my followers here.

Actual Gaming Journalism! Which is mad, now that I think about it. I'm one of the article writers for a small site called N-Europe. So far, I've done reviews for New Super Mario Bros. U, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy and the DLC for the Switch version of Captain Toad. I'll leave the links below.

Its nice to see you're still making art after seeing you 8 years ago when Flipnote Hatena was still around. Your art is really good :)

Do you still do requests?

Glen-i Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, I do take requests. Within reason. I'm not the most amazing artist. I can't promise I'll be able to draw what you want.

As long as I believe that I could pull it off, I'll give it a shot. And as long as you don't mind waiting a while.

Send me a note with the details.
