Mysterious Mew by Paleona Mysterious Mew by Paleona
I really loved drawing this one, and took my time on the coloring. These colors were sooo nice to work with Emoji24 
Like all my pokemon illustrations- no context given, you can make your own idea as to what's happening~
 

Thanks for looking!


Drawn in PSE 7.

How lovely! :clap: And it makes me wonder what game/region this is set in--somehow the landscape seems a mix of several, in my mind. I guess Mew visits them all. :)

Oh gosh I really love the colours in this one. The glow effect is so cool here.. Gives kind of mystical vibes to this one that I adore.
I always love how you add little background pokes to your pictures to give them more life. Xatu isn't a pokemon you see art of too often and. Not only did you add him to your picture but you made him look so darn cute! :heart:
Lovely picture

Thank you, Reau~ .:Tiny flower:. I'm glad you got some mystic vibes from this, that's pretty much what I was hoping for :')
Xatu is such a great pokemon! It's fun to pick out some lesser drawn pokemon to add to a scene. With how often you encounter pokemon in the games, I imagine there must be really healthy populations of all sorts of them, living in close proximity. Pokemon Snap continues to be one of my fave inspirations, too <3

Oh my gosh it's been so long since I've even thought about Pokemon Snap!
Such a cute game I can definitely see how it could inspire your adorable pictures :heart:
I love seeing your unique interactions between Pokemon that you don't see drawn often.
I think it's one of the things that helps make your Pokemon art so special compared to other fanart.
But your style is what really makes it in the end. Haha. :'D

i especially love the trio of bellsprout in the corner there. such weirdly adorable 'mons hehe
i'm curious, do you decide on a palette before you start, or is it something you work at as you go? they're always so lovely

Thanks! I’ve always thought Bellsprout was really cute; I just love simple Pokémon designs. 

Hmm, it depends. For this one, I knew I wanted to draw Mew, and have a lot of teal shades. Then I chose some Pokémon I like with coordinating colors, and went from there~ I had a light, sort of mint green as the background color, and built up some test colors on top of it before starting the final coloring.

This is amazing! It reminds me of that level from Misery Dungeon, and I spy with my little eye... a mikaruge hiding in the grass.

Mew is summoning a bunch of Ultra Beasts. Xatu is worried what terrors will come crawling out of the portal while the Bellsprout Gang are excited to see the action begin.

Thank you so much! Choosing the colors was probably my favorite step for this one; I'm so happy they caught your eye! Contrast is something I really struggle with, so I tried to up it a little this time. Thanks again, I'll do my best .:Tiny flower:.

I absolutely love your pastel work too! you have such a way with those gentle colors, and it's refreshing to see you up the contrast with this one while still keeping your signature softness intact ;w;
