ER: DTKAF-176: Illu 2 by Turtle-Arts ER: DTKAF-176: Illu 2 by Turtle-Arts
First of two pics for round 1 in :iconend-run--pokemon-oct:. I chose to start with the second option: a training battle between you and a member of your same side. So, I partnered up with the wonderful :iconvhu: and had my boy Mouse and his deino, Grenich fight Chase and his sneasel, Marika. Mouse and Chase aren't members of the same faction, but we weren't limited to our specific faction, so that was nice. :nod: But gosh, compared to Chase, Mouse is such a little stick. -_-; Toothpick legs... lol Though I was surprised to see that Chase wasn't actually that much taller than Mouse. :I

Both these guys are pretty nonchalant about actually commanding their pokemon in battle, so I figure this fight would be more along the lines of just Marika and Grenich going at it while the actual trainers just sit back and watch. XD Mouse isn't particularly interested in non-aerial battles, so this isn't really the kind of thing that excites him. :I Actually, I would have preferred to not even have the trainers in this drawing, but the rules said we had to. Oh well.

I have to do one more for this round, either an aerial race, or the obstacle course. Probably gonna do the race. :3 And apparently, we're not really supposed to write stories for this round either, so I guess just take this pic at face value. :shrug: I went through a lot of versions of this. Never could quite get something I liked, but this is the one I disliked the least. XD Coloring came down to me just screwing around as well really.... I mean, I worked very hard on this. >_> *cough*

Oh yeah, and since I always need to do this- here's Mouse's original app -> [link]

Those are some pretty sweet battle effects, especially Grenich's. I like the style here, it gives this pokémon battling a suitable feel similar to that of a gritty military movie. Along with a slight manga edge, particularly in those dust clouds, and those spikes of dirt disturbed by Marika's claws.

WAY OVERDUE COMMENT GO. /finally getting to them message stacks

...aaand I don't know what to say.
Or where to start, rather.
This is what magnificence looks like when you make a Pokemon Battle version of it.
I love the feeling of rush you managed to convey, in the poses of the fighting creatures, the angle of the scene and the colors and effects you applied. That is a lot of energy and I am liking every aspect of it. Your shading style nicely complements the fierce grittiness of the clash too.
Also Grenich.
Just- just Grenich.
drallamagons charging lazors bring me much joy. <333

Thank you for featuring Chase and Marika in your battle! And, once again, brilliant job on the picture. One of the stronger entries of this round, I believe!

I love the composition of this piece.The colours and the diagonal and the way you shade are just great, but I think the way you didn't focus on the trainers is the best.

The ink-like frame around make the attack scene looks really striking! 8D I like how you drew the trainers' standing poses too, it reflects their personalities very well.

Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! Yeah, the frame was my way of compensating for the fact that I wanted a diagonal composition, but couldn't really get it and still have the trainers or a pleasant looking shape. -_- But I'm glad it worked! XD

Lol, true that. XD Besides, my professors taught me that it's better to develop your own tool that suits you best. I made this brush as part of an assignment to create a brush that matched our individual style as an artist, so giving it to someone else seems a bit pointless, you know? :I

GraphixS6 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Again true enough, and I defend your right to keeping it, but I'm think it may have been Andrew Loomis who said the best way to learn to draw, was to seek and learn from someone who is better. I can't help but think you're a better artist.

:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Oh well yeah you should definitely learn from artists you consider to be better, but you should never try to be just like someone else. You should never draw like anyone but yourself. :>
