2014 Update.
A new year, but sadly not much has changed as far as my time is concerned. Mostly just posting to say "I'm still around / semi-active." Sorry for not uploading much art lately. I haven't had much time to devote to Sugimori-style art but I'm going to try to make time to do some soon. Up next should be Chesnaught to finish off the Kalos starters, and after that I'll see if I can focus on Megas or something. There's a lot I want to work on, so I'll try to pick up the pace somehow. For now I've mostly been recoloring some of my old Generation 6 art to include their shiny versions. Gogoat, Mega Mewtwo Y, Mega Venusaur, and Mega Blastoise all have
Post-X/Y Release Update
Not much has changed schedule-wise for me (still working on my portfolio), but I'd just like to mention a few things now that X and Y are out and all of that glorious new Sugimori art is being released. Upcoming Art: With so many new Pokémon to draw, I'm still deciding on whether or not to draw them in-order (as they appear in the PokéDex) like I attempted to with Unova or just primarily focus on peoples' favorites again. The 'Dex being so short this generation is both a blessing and a curse - it's good because it means fewer things for me to draw but bad because more new Pokémon couldn't hurt. I'll probably get around to a few of the more p
Portfolio and Mega Evolution, oh my!
Over the next few months I will be working on getting my portfolio for art school ready. As I mentioned in my last journal entry this will likely mean I'll only be able to work on Pokémon / side art on very rare occasions. I know updates have already been rare, but it's going to be even more rare over the coming months. I'll still be online almost daily (checking various sites for news and getting back to people) so I can still be contacted via Note (and to a lesser extent, profile comments). So if you need me please do not hesitate to contact me that way. I will not have the time to check comments on images (except for a day or two after I u
Slower art turnout and more stuff.
My last Journal entry was getting kinda old so I figured I should write a new one. I want to apologize for the very slow rate artwork is getting completed - this is the busiest I've been in a very long time, and right now it doesn't look like it'll be getting any better for a while. Although I do have sketches done, I don't have the time to outline them (takes around 30 minutes just to outline a sketch, sometimes longer if it's very complex) so I can't even work on them bit-by-bit. With the final months before the release of X and Y versions finally here, we're (likely) going to see an explosion of new Pokémon (unless they decide to keep thi
Generation 6 and Upcoming Art.
I got tired of seeing that Hoenn Pokémon entry, so I decided to write a new one. :P (I do plan on doing something like that Hoenn Pokémon entry in the future, but it'll have to be after this Generation 6 stuff calms down.) The main reason for my slow art turnout is the projects I'm working on, but with Generation 6 looming over us I've also been hesitant to start working on new art. When it hits I don't want to be in the middle of a piece of art. With the Generation 6 news coming this weekend, depending on what we get, I should have something to upload. As October draws closer we'll probably get flooded with news, leaks, and tons of Pokémon
