Let Me Show You Them


So, here's an exercise in complete self-indulgence. I've been drawing for other people a LOT lately, so this is my brief swim in Lake Me before I get back to that.

Here's Pokémon Trainer me with my loyal band of Pokémon in my current Pokémon Diamond roster. I kept their genders and personalities intact from the ones they're assigned in the game.

-Yetina is a quiet Abomasnow.

-Riot is my Darkrai. Since I got it in a Toys R Us event, I can't really name it in the game, but it's Riot to me. It's described as docile, which is an interesting trait for a legendary Pokémon usually depicted as evil and megalomaniacal. This is MY Darkrai. My NICE Darkrai.

-Duran is my docile Lucario. Also docile! I wanted to depict that differently for him, so I dressed him up a bit like my friend Chris Rockriver . He's reading a copy of Flowers for Algernon, a book he considers a parallel to his rise from being a normal Riolu to a Pokémon that can communicate with humans.

-Aquaboo is a brave Empoleon. He was my starter Pokémon.

-Napier is what I'd name my Infernape if I hadn't received him nameless in a GTS trade. He's described as careful.

-Charap is my Chatot. I wouldn't have chosen that name for her, but that's what she was named in the in-game trade. She's described as lonely... which seems odd. She's saying the Chatter line I gave her, "Hey, y'know something?" It's a line from my favorite creepy hygene film.

Sweet :D

I love your style its pretty awesome :)

Its awesome!

The fact of using the nature of your pokemon to design their appearance is truly original, I'm training and studying a lot of pokemon lately (nature, stats etc) when i finished to make my six-pokemon team i will draw a picture i swear!!

I'm training Lock (Metagross) Slayer (tyranitar) and Reaper (Garchomp)
They are unstoppable!
Your style is great man, Keep up the awesome work


I must agree with Doodleses on this one

your animation takes me back to the days of Ren and Stimpy. Spunco needs to make more Cartoons, alot of cartoons on these days are just crap

Should be on TV!

This is parody-worthy and the idea should be encompassed on film. Each character has its own whimsical or giddy look which adds more to its charm---and Flowers for Algernon (I read an excerpt but) is a lovely book.

HAH! No way! I made one of these, too.

Just finished reviewing your Super Mario pic. I've just gotta say, EVERYTHING in your gallery looks TV-show worthy. This, especially! :D

You shold swim in "Lake Me" more often. lol

Your ability to give every character personality is uncanny.
Don't ever stop! :D
