Pokemon 20th Anniversary- Celebi by Sol-Lar-Bink Pokemon 20th Anniversary- Celebi by Sol-Lar-Bink
Celebi flies in for March!
Celebrating 20 years of Pokemon by drawing each mythical Pokemon each month! To tie into the monthly distributions~
I tried to base it off the Lake of Life seen in the Celebi movie. Pine trees surrounding the area, and Celebi playfully soaring above the lakes surface.

Honestly, I'm really happy with the outcome! A lot more happier than with Mews... but hey. I'd say after doing Mews pic, I learned what to do and what not to do. Mostly fixing composition and shading.

I was listening to Celebi's theme while drawing this~


Last month was Mew!
Next Month is... Jirachi!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

See them ALL here!!!

Mew- February
Celebi- March
Jirachi- April
Darkrai- May
Manaphy- June

(Gahhh! It's about darn time for me to stop being one of those pseudo-watchers, this is just too good not to comment on)

This is simply fantastic! Quite an improvement from the Mew pic, I must say (which was still great, don't get me wrong).

The shading on Celebi is on point, it's so smooth and nice looking~
Background, while quite simple, is looking amazing - I love how you did the trees, and man, that turquoise-colored water with the little line "drawn" on its surface by Celebi - marvelous.

I also love the subtle details, such as the narrow light outline on the onion fairy, the mountains behind the forest, and the Suicune cameo (sneaky).

Great job, as per usual!

Sorry for being so late though ;A;

Ahhh, thanks a lot Spino~! uvu that means a lot <3
I'm pretty proud of this pic, so I'm happy you like it~

Some of the little details just felt necessary~ Celebi needed to stand out a little more c:
I'd say I've learned a lot after the Mew picture, so hopefully the rest should look on par with this one.

Better late than never~ It's perfectly fine uvu

I'm looking forward to seeing what your Celebi picture will be!

You're very much welcome! 'w'
And you really should be, it's beautiful! :dummy:

You certainly did but hey, there's always the possibility that the next ones are going to look even better~!

Oh, whew ;w;

Oh my, now the pressure's on...
...although, at least it's that one pixie whom I used to draw an awful lot back in the days so it shouldn't be that hard to make it look right, hah.

Hehe~

Well I'm planning to really try my best at the Jirachi one! Jirachi the Wishmaker was the first Pokemon Movie that I owned, and I watched it a lot of times uvu so Jirachi is a special Pokemon to me~

You can do it! I know you can! c:
Ahh cool! Was Celebi one of your fave Pokemon back then?

SpinoOne Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I see! Reading this kinda made me want to draw that fake Groudon that appeared in the movie, it was an interesting concept - though I'd still rather it be the real Groudon, him and Jirachi make for a weirdly cute little duo, hah.
And I also like Jirachi a lot, it's definitely one of my favorite pixies c:

I'll try ;A;

Well, it was mainly the personality I gave to that character, which completely didn't fit it's cute appearance, that made me like Celebi so much, it was hilarious :XD:
I still like the little onion fairy a lot though, and I'm happy I'll finally have an actual reason to draw them again c:

Ah really? I thought it was pretty interesting too!
A cute lil couple you think? >v>

I'm rooting for ya~

Ahh I See! sounds really cool >v< I don't suppose you have any of those sketches lying around somewhere do you? I'd be interesting to see!

A c-couple? Welp, that's not really what I had in mind but they could indeed make for one unusual but also an adorable couple, haha!
The size difference tho ;0;

I have no idea where the unfinished sketches are at the moment, but that character did make some appearances in a few traditional drawings that I did actually finish but didn't upload here because, well, they were already too old when I made this account, hah. I suppose I could scan some of those never published pics someday and upload them... in the form of a collage to my scraps, maybe...? Always nice to compare your old stuff with the stuff you're making currently c:

Though I've also just remembered that I've drawn Celebi in these two very old pieces of mine: 
fav.me/d8may8v
fav.me/d90n943
Oh, I miss the little guy a bit, hah.

By the way, just a question: could you maybe consider adding 3-4 more months to this particular series? I feel like Diancie, Hoopa, Volcanion, and perhaps Magiana/Magearna deserve their own pics just as much as the rest of the mythical legends c:
(Though, I'll understand if you don't because those four aren't included in the distribution-promotion-thingy >.>)
I'd also love to see how you'd draw Unbound Hoopa, just sayyyyiiiiiinnnnnnnnn'

Haha~ well maybe >v>;
Lil star child x godzilla
sounds good xD

Ahh I see~ A collage sounds pretty nice actually! uvu

Ahhh there he is~ They're awesome xD

I waaas thinking about doing that honestly! I think they deserve a picture as well! And I know I'd love to do a Diancie one c:
I've been practicing my normal Hoopa's recently, I just can't get the face quite right, but I've never tried drawing Unbound Hoopa o:
He's awesome though~
If I'm gonna do pics for them, you should too ;3c

that way gen 6 mythical pokes and Magearna could at least join in
