This picture is related to the upcoming page (and by 'upcoming' I mean I finally did the second half of the lineart in some manic nightly drawing fits during the weekend) but I guess I can just upload it now that it's finished.

Hey, everyone looks happy. That's kinda rare, so enjoy it while it lasts.

How do I consistent Pokémon size? ._.

Thank you! :heart: I discovered the magic of vapor trails, making every sky 20% better.

They get fluffier on every page! :boogie:
Let me fangirl a little bit about what you did with Terry's mane (or whatever it is called). It is not a light brown mess, you actually added a lot of structure. It really looks like it is connected with the body. And it does not look dead straight like a lot of evee manes hair look like, it's more messy. Not only that it is lifelike (poor thing, the those battles are not doing any good to his hairstyle) but also it fits to his personality. And it is drawn pretty realistic without loosing its charming cartoon style! :iconclappingplz: I hope he is going to stay fluffy forever.

Butterfrees are still scary to me

Fluffiness > consistency any day :dummy:
There will be much sadness when Nathan loses his fluffy tail with the next evolution. But Pilot can always grow more fluffy feathers, right? Don't even try to observe Sara's hair. It has a life of its own. Nope, I got nothing to do with that.

Oh wow, I would never have expected a compliment on that. Thank you! :glomp:
Any kind of hair looks better with volume, and the structure and 'messiness' of the mane and tail is suggested in a lot of the official artwork (Huh, now that I look at it again, Terry's design varies a lot from the official artwork. He looks a lot more mature, which is probably a good thing?), and I think many people draw it too straight and 'tame' because they're afraid of experimenting with shape. But that's fun! D:

The eyes... Oh god the eyes... :fear: You have no idea how many tries it always takes to make the eyes look only slightly creepy. He might be a killing machine at this point of the game, but actually he's the meekest guy on the team...

D: No fluffy tail anymore?
You are right, he looks more mature! But I think thats pretty logical - Sara was like, 9 when she and her sister got Terry and now she is around 20. And logic is wonderful thing! :hooray:

I had to look up "meek". I just learned a new word! :la: It's so hard to love bug pokemon... Poor guy.
But your Bellsprout always looks very adorable. I guess that means she is the crazy one? :fear:

Unfortunately, I can't imagine a Blastoise with a fluffy tail. It's sad, I know. :cries:
To be exact, she was 12 when they got Terry and now she's 18. But yes, Terry is clearly an adult and his looks make people take him seriously.

The magic of the internet! :la:
Bug Pokémon are cool. But it's hard to make them look not creepy...
Not sure about that, the Pidgey's craziness overshadows everyone elses. :B Let's say Bellsprout is prone to mood swings and can be quite brutal in battle. (As soon as she gets some good moves. xD)

All my pokemon have fluctuating sizes don't worry it's a cool thing

I always get super nervous when people post cute team photos, because it's a sign that everything terrible is going to start happening. EVERYTHING. So I hope that's not entirely the case.

Still forever envious of your backgrounds.

So I've actually been cool the whole time? That's a relief. ... Maybe the size consistency will become easier when they all evolve to be big enough for comfortable drawing.

Ahhhh no worries! In my head, it doesn't make sense to draw a team picture shortly before a death, because then it would become outdated too fast. (But apparently it makes sense to draw one 2 pages before an evolution whoops.)
I've done really well in this game. No one will die until you've grown to love them with a large part of your soul that will proceed to die with them. ^^;

And now wait for the D'awwww feeling that's going to occur when you see what this is for in the context of the next page. :meow:

Thank you! :D
PS.: The secret to my colors is 'Asfdgeafhk turn the damn saturation down!'

so enjoy it while it lasts.......
enjoy it while it lasts......
while it lasts.....

there best not be some death next page girl!!

anyway, loving the happy atmosphere and the shades, and that sky turned out with super fluffy clouds. and pfft, what is pokemon scale? not even the anime follows the proper scale at times (such as gastly), so don't worry bout it.
the soft shades work well, and it's a great stand alone shot of the team

Asfgashj I didn't mean to scare you all! :ohnoes: I just meant to suggest that there will be more bickering and moping in the near future. >_>

Fluffy clouds are gooood. All things fluffy are good. :meow:
I've never cared much about official Pokémon size (lol Kingdra), it's rather that some of them turned out a bit taller than usual. Should have scanned the paper sketch I had instead of making a rushed digital one...
Awww glad that you think so! Everyone says one shouldn't mix soft shading and cell shading, but somehow it works here. Maybe something to do with focus. Thanks for the artistic analysis! :hug:

heh, I know, just messing with ya


fluff power! and ah, I get what you mean now. and yeah, it helps the foreground and focus distinguish from each other, like how you do a focus on the camera
