Re: The Farthest extent of my artistic talents
Welp, Airik, you got yourself a green line of circles there. Very similar to what Weedle looks like in general, I'd say. However... it is a green line of circles with no real shading or the little details that make a Weedle a Weedle. It is super easy to catch stuff like this Pokemon, though, if you just put a bit more effort into your lines and making the Pokemon look as it's supposed to. I did like that you put some color into this, though. One other thing you could do to help you catch Pokemon by drawing is by coloring in the background a bit, even if it's a solid color for the Simple type 'mons. So...
Score: 15/100, which, unfortunately, means that Weedle is not caught. Just give the details some more time and I'm sure you'll catch it if you try again ^^
Overall, I'd say that this is a very impressive piece for a Simple 'mon. I like the depth of shading and gradient here, though the differing styles are a bit confusing.
The lines in this are neat, concise, and consistent throughout the whole picture. I like that you put Surskit in its own environment, perched on a lilypad and looking all adorably innocent. Some things in this are inconsistent, though, including the realism of the water in the background to the cartoony nature of the lilypad, to the complete lack of shading on Surskit that doesn't match even the cartooned lilypad. Other than these controversial differences, I love this image and I find it to be adorable.
The coloring is so pretty! I love the gradients on the lily pad as well as the shading to make it look sort of rippled and wrinkly. The water looks very nice in the background, as well. However, I'm confused as to why Surskit doesn't have any shading... it doesn't seem to match the rest of your image.
Yup, Surskit looks all right to me!
1. Make your shading consistent!
2. Give your Pokemon a more dynamic pose instead of just sort of sitting there. It makes for higher points!
SCORE 45/100, which is more than enough to ensure that Surskit is caught!
