Realistic Pokemon: Torracat
It's been over two years since I drew my last realistic Pokémon. Here's Torracat to continue with the Sun & Moon starters.

After I started my PhD my art output decreased quite a bit. Apart from some Inktober illustrations last year and the base lineart for a few in the works (including this one), I had not completed a digital Pokémon illustration since May 2016! Needless to say I'm very behind on the series but I do have the other Alolan starters ready to go.

I label my Pokémon interpretations "realistic" because I try to re-imagine them with plausible anatomy in a realistic setting, taking inspiration from real-life animals or objects. Torracat was inspired mostly by lynxes, given it's rather large limbs and facial fur. I wanted to add a smooth transition between Litten (house cat) and Incineroar (tiger) so I think a lynx with modified anatomy was somewhere in the middle. The "bell" is essentially an organ that is swollen with heated fluid.

Drawn with Photoshop CC + Wacom Cintiq 24HD, possibly 12+ hours. I hope you guys like it!

Faces of Flinders
This is "fanart" for my University (Flinders University), so the context behind it will be a bit hard for most to understand. What was meant to be a simple sketch for a South Australian University "meme war" ended up being a lot more.

The characters featured are Bevin (a long-time student and lecturer at Flinders that was known to be a colourful character); pacific black duck (Anas superciliosa) which are common on campus and a bit of a meme; and Trim the cat, who voyaged with Matthew Flinders and is a bit of a mascot. Credits to Luke Sparrow and Denis Dmenace for photo references.

This illustration was a reference to the painting "Napoleon Crossing the Alps" by Jacques-Louis David (Charlottenburg version): en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napoleon…

And finally, our friends at our rivalling SA Unis are shown below as a testament to the meme wars that we have. As a disclaimer, this illustration is entirely satirical and does not reflect my personal opinions about any of the Universities shown.

Illustrated with Photoshop CC + Wacom Cintiq 24HD tablet in about 20 hours. 

Was fun drawing something silly inbetween commissions and PhD work.

Elements

This piece explores the wonderful diversity of temperate marine life along southern Australia, and the unfortunate persistence of marine plastic pollution. Walk along our local beaches and you’d agree that seeing marine organisms washed ashore is a familiar sight. Unfortunately, plastic pollution is also getting washed ashore amongst it, even in what we’d call ‘pristine’ beaches. The bits of plastic stuck onto this painting were removed from some local Adelaide beaches. It goes without saying how widespread plastic is in our oceans, and how surprisingly abundant it is on our beautiful coastline here in southern Australia. These plastics further degrade into microscopic fragments that are small enough to pass through food webs and accumulate in tissues of animals even smaller than the ones shown here. Sadly, we now face the reality of observing plastic pollution wash up on our beaches with these beautiful, unique animals, and paints a reminder for this issue at a global scale.

Watercolour, gouache and ink on Arches hot-pressed paper (365 GSM, 102 cm x 65 cm). Beach litter stuck on with removable adhesive. Approximately 60 hours total - animal references obtained from a huge array of marine life books, my own photographs, online museum collections etc.

My entry for the SA Museum’s Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize. I wasn’t successful being selected in 2016, so fingers crossed this year! 

Before people ask - yes the plastic can be removed. They’re been stuck on with non-acidic adhesive glue dots, which can peel away easily and not damage the painting (I also used several varnish coats to protect the front). This means the original can be sold either with or without the plastic message. I also plan to make non-plastic versions available as limited edition prints!

Eeveelutions-Sylveon
The Interwining Pokémon. Sylveon have prehensile ribbon-like feelers that emit a calming aura. This aura has soothing properties, but can also be used to distract and weaken hostility in its prey.

Evolve the Rainbow - Glaceon

The Fresh Snow Pokémon. Glaceon are able to drop their body temperatures low enough to freeze the air surrounding them. Sharp frozen icicles will then appear on its fur, and can be fired at enemies.
