Hi everyone :)

So, as many of you know, this has been one of the toughest years of my life... it all really started way back in March 2018: I had just passed my final nursing exam and was celebrating with my soon-to-be in-laws when my mobile phone started ringing, but it wasn't an ordinary phone call.  It was a video call from my dad.  I figured he was calling to say congratulations face-to-face, so to speak.  He wasn't.  That was when I found out my dad had cancer and not just any cancer, but blood cancer... the kind you can't get rid of...
That would have been tough enough to deal with on its own, but just as my dad's treatment was beginning, a shocking tragedy shook my family deeply.  My Uncle Sean, the husband to my mum's younger sister Libby, was very much the life and soul of any family gathering.  Any family event or holiday or occasion, we normally found ourselves in their house celebrating with amazing food that Sean would cook, lots of alcohol and, most of all, great company.  Uncle Sean brought our family closer and he was a fantastic addition to our family.  He started a tradition in our family that we would celebrate Christmas twice a year - once on the 25th of December like everyone else, and once again in the summer... "Christmas in July".  Sean would go all out - cooking the full turkey dinner, decorate his home, dress up as Santa, the full nine yards.  We knew for about a year that he was ill and that his chances were not great, so we planned in July 2018 to do one last big Christmas in July.  My partner and I were on the motorway down to their house to help get everything ready when my phone rang.  It was my mum calling to tell me that Sean had taken really unwell that morning, had been rushed to the hospital and died very suddenly.  We were floored... to lose such a huge part of our family spirit so suddenly... Christmas this winter, and New Year too, just haven't been the same without him.
My dad's treatment was really difficult for him, and for us to watch him decline so far, but he absolutely beasted it and they stopped his treatment 4 months early because he was doing so well!  The next stage involved him being admitted to hospital for 3 weeks for stem cell replacement therapy.  While we were waiting for the good news to continue, death once again raised his scythe...
When I first met Stuart, my partner, we fell in love very quickly.  We are just made for each other, there is no effort and no hard work needed to make our relationship as strong as it is.  I moved in with him and his parents within the year and I feel like I've known his mum and dad my whole life.  I couldn't ask for better soon-to-be in-laws or friends.  Most of all, their little dog Lady, adopted me as her puppy.  She was a brilliant, gentle and so so loving creature.  Over the last few years, we've watched her steadily decline and knew her time with us would soon be by.  She fought so hard right up until the very end, until one day she let us know she was ready to go to sleep.  We miss our special Lady every day and our lives are not the same without her.
Within a week of Lady passing, my dad was finally admitted to hospital.  It was a very difficult few weeks, it was a very dark time for my dad being separated from us all as there were times we weren't allowed to visit or he wasn't allowed to leave the hospital room due to the nature of his treatment.  However, we all rallied to help him get through it and he finally got home just the week before Christmas.
As the year drew to a close, we breathed a sigh... we thought "that's it, we've made it".  This had been a hard year, but we were coming to the end and hoping and praying for a better 2019.  However, as is usually the case, death comes in threes...
On Boxing Day, I was getting ready to start cooking two Christmas dinners when my mum calls me.  I had spoken to her earlier that morning and thought she had maybe forgotten to tell me something.  Unfortunately, she was bearing sad news... many years ago now, when I was still with my ex, we lived together with my brother in a wee upstairs flat.  This was our first flat and, even though we were nervous, we knew we had good neighbours.  My Uncle George and Aunt Shirley-Anne lived in the flat below us and we shared a garden with them.  On Boxing Day, my mum called to tell me that George had passed away suddenly that morning.  So... we are starting 2019 off with a funeral.

However, 2018 hasn't been all bad.  On the up-side - I graduated university (again) with a degree in Mental Health Nursing, my dad beat cancer (until it resurfaces at least) and we welcomed a new puppy into our family just the other day.  Plus, 2019, while off to a sad start, is also very exciting because, in just a few weeks, I'll be marrying the man of my dreams!  I couldn't wish for a kinder, lovelier and sexier man.  I really didn't think I had a shot with a guy as amazing as him, but he agreed to that first date and we've been practically inseparable ever since!  And now we're going to be married!  For all the hard times this year, my man has seen me through it all, he's been my rock and supported me and my family through it all.  Yes, it's been a tough year, but I've also never felt this happy or alive.

So... I think that's my "resolution" for 2019 - to not get bogged down or hung up on the bad stuff and the tough times and the sadness.  Yes, I will cry when times are sad, I'll shout at the universe when life gets a little too hard... but I'll also remember that my life, ultimately, is in a really positive place right now and is so full of warmth and love. 

For 2019, I choose to be happy and fill my life with love.

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2019 everyone :glomp:

(PS... on the Fakemon side of things... I'm going to delay my next batch for a little bit as I need to replace the Budiss line in the Miravel Region.  I have a fantastic idea for it's replacement and I'm actually really glad it worked out this way because I'm planning on using an updated version of the first Grass Starter Fakemon I ever designed and I think that will make a really awesome segue into the Origa Region!  Anyways, that's all from me really this time - Happy 2019!!!)

HIATUS NOTICE - my dad is in ICU and I need to take some time to look after my own mental health. I'm going to keep working because art, especially Pokemon, is therapy and escape for me, but I'm not going to put any pressure on myself. I want to come back with my current projects fighting fit, so I need to take a step back for my own sake. I am so proud that I am able to recognise that now and hopefully that will help me cope better than ever before ❤️
Taking a bit longer to get round to doing my Budiss replacement and officially starting my Fakemon Gen 2, because I've been so busy working on  The Pokemon Gen IV Tribute (Last Update 25.03)
Update 19.03
Wow, 67 of the 107 Pokemon in Round I are illustrated already!
I can still use a lot of help for the Pokemon and Pokemon Move descriptions in our Generation III Tribute ..anyone able/willing to help us a bit?
Update 25.02.2019
YAS! All 107 Pokemon are claimed and if we don't have the USUAL little problems like artists just deactivating their accounts and not sending a short note about it ..or being not able to draw the Pokemon due to all kinds of problems we should have the first round completely done in May :) Right now, around the half of all the Gen IV Pokemon are drawn already, thanks a ton at everyone of you for participating in our collaboration!
----------------------------------
Update 27.01.2019
That was an awesome first week with the majority of the 107 Pokemon claimed already and 8 of them were even drawn now and can be seen in the Journal below!
Right now only 28 Pokemon are left, so be quick and grab 1-3 of them! We also got t
so far I've just finished the line work for 'Budew Use Growth!'
There are 10 Pokemon still to be selected for the project, so if you've got some time and are looking for an interesting drawing challenge, then get involved! 

Also... I got married!!!  Life is settling back to normal now and I'm back at work, I don't think I have ever been this happy in my life!!!!!!!
Just came up with a great concept to replace the Budiss line from my Miravel Region based on the first ever Grass type starter I designed! Getting rid of Budiss is actually going to work out brilliantly because using my first ever Grass type starter Fakemon will make for a great segue into my Origa Region!!
Going to be uploading the silhouettes of the Origa Region Starters for my Fakemon Gen 2 series "Shades of Gold" and "Shades of Silver" (that would be their names if they were real) :glomp:
Sorry folks - been bogged down with lately with my new job, wedding planning, and my dad's treatment.  Things aren't too bleak though, most of my downtime has been spent playing my new Switch and introducing the future hubby to Doctor Who.  Hoping to get back to artwork soon ;)

can Thuddra appear in the Origa region?

PamtreWN Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Unfortunately not. I was thinking of it, but the concept for Dragallow, the final stage, is too similar to Kommo-o. Hopefully I can re-tool the design at a later stage, but I'd rather use a much older Pseudo Legendary line for the Origa Region :)

The old Thuddra design is in my Gallery with my other old designs from 2015.  I only have sketches of its evolutions, but I'd rather not upload them at this time.  I am sure I can augment the designs but think a change of type might be in order for them ultimately.

I have to tell you that there is 2 pokemon VERY similar to your Akitar and Oilampt. Both are made by KY-PHA. A good thing that he didn't steal your idea. He was inspired by something else. You can check his profile to see those similar pokemon.

I had a wee look through his gallery but didn't see anything that jumped out at me as too similar to Akitar and Oilampt, but thanks for the heads up all the same ;) he has some cool designs too, so thanks as well for giving me someone else to watch and support on here :)

I am afraid none of my current Fakemon are available for use (fanart is permitted provided due credit is given) and some Fakemon designs may be for sale in the future.
I am currently available for commissions if you would like me to design some original Fakemon for you. Details available in the following Journal - fav.me/dbdw2r0.

I want to thank you, however, for your interest in my design, it really does mean a lot and I consider questions like this high praise :)
