In celebration of Sword and Shield’s release, I dusted off some of my old Fakemon designs and redrew them. Meet Gyleok and Gargyleton the Gargoyle Pokémon! Legends say these Pokémon were once normal Gargoyles. It is speculated that the orb is what gives them life, which is why you never see Gyleok or Gargyleton without it.
How are you so good at drawing??
I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times before, but the old saying “practice makes perfect” is true. I’m always pushing myself to try new things no matter how impossible it may seem. Don’t put yourself in a creative stranglehold; if you mostly do cartoony things then try doing something realistic! It is my firm belief that you should never compare your own art to someone else’s art. Instead, I recommend looking at some of your older works (it doesn’t matter if it’s a year old or even something you did a week ago) and compare it to your newer stuff. You should be proud of any strides; big or small; you’ve made when refining your style. And remember; there’s always room for improvement.
I’ve decided to start posting some of my paintings from my introductory painting class I took last semester. This was my final project from the class, which involved putting magazine cutouts together in a collage and then copying it onto the canvas with oil paints. The theme of this painting is the contrast between natural and man-made beauty. I’m in no way perfect at painting, but I feel like this class really helped me improve.
I SAW DETECTIVE PIKACHU
OH MY GOSH IT WAS EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE! I loved seeing all of the Pokemon and just the sheer scale of Ryme City and the world around it. I enjoyed being able to recognize all of the music cues from the games and anime. I absolutely loved Tim Goodman and Lucy Stevens as characters. The interactions between Tim and Pikachu were incredibly heartwarming. And lastly, it’s amazing how many different emotions I felt during this movie. I was excited, happy, mystified, shocked, sad, and in the end I was cheering. If you’re a long time fan like me or someone who’s new to the franchise, I recommend this movie to everyone.
