Ho-oh-speedpaint by topcat-sama Ho-oh-speedpaint by topcat-sama
A Pokemon Speedpaint I did on a snow day (like a month ago XD). I was wondering if Deviant art was a good place to upload speedpaints so I held off uploading it until now.

I really like pokemon, particularly the Johto region because that was where I first started my pokemon journey (not HG but the old 8-bit version X3) and I'm glad that pokemon get's the attention it does now (esp. in Japan). I mean, if you look at sites like this or pixiv the numbers of fanart for Gen.6 is ridiculous for only having 7 pokemon released. But, if one searches Ho-oh or other earlier Gen. pokemon (except Kanto or starter pokemon) then there isn't nearly as much fanart :/

Ho-oh is one of my favorite legendary pokemon.

Love it !!! 
I especially love how you can still see the brush strokes of the painting, so it looks a touch messy, but yet neat and planned. :3

Oh wow, I haven't watched much of Pokemon (I only watched when Ash was in the series) but I'm sure this Pokemon appeared on one of the covers of a latest Pokemon game. Have to say I'm very impressed with this drawing! It really looks like a phoenix :D

Thanks! :D  Actually, even though Ho-oh was one of the two mascots for Gen II Ho-oh did briefly appear in the first episode of Pokemon. So, you might have actually seen it.

Ho-oh! Yeah :D

Very cool fire effect. I like the comb on his head. I'm not too fond of the beak, it's this block of solid colour that just sticks out in between the rest of the speedpaint effects.

0_o I never noticed how much the beak stood out compared to the rest of Ho-oh. Thanks for the insight :)

Thank you, I did the base painting as a grayscale first and then used a "soft light" gradient and "overlay" for the main colors (like Ho-ohs reds and yellows):)

I completely agree with you. Poor early Pokemon and their lack of attention. I've been super obsessed with Pokemon lately hopefully my icon project inspires others to do early Pokemon art cuz there definitely needs to be more of it. And that is a beautiful speedpaint :D

Aww thanks:glomp:, and yeah, I hope you're icon inspires some old-school pokemon art too! I mean, I liked Pokemon Black&White and X&Y looks interesting, but Johto and Kanto will always be the the best.:iconherotimeplz:
