mrmpf.... I wouldn't say that the background does much... but I'm happy with Kirlia herself. I was in the mood to draw Pokemon. Hope ya like it dudes! And happy Halowe'en by the way.

the reason you don't like the background is because there is so much extra space! IF you don't plan on doing a scene for the background, then make your applet smaller. One thing i've noticed about your pictures is that you always use the biggest one there is, and you don't really have to. :3
The pokemon is done well though, and i adore your signature. :D
x_x_dragonfly_x_x 2005/11/3 - 12:20:5
I always use the biggest pallette...? I had no idea! Thanks for pointing that out for me!

My computer spazzed for 5 minutes and I almost went crazy thinking my picture was gonna die. >.< Mozilla firefox hates mee~
c&c welcome ^_^
x_x_dragonfly_x_x 2005/10/31 - 15:41:13
Its lovely and neat! I like the background! ._.
p_b 2005/11/5 - 0:11:58
very nice indeed :)
nice clean lineart and awsome BG. I like the color choices as well.
only critique i have is that the line that's suposed to be the middle of her back looks like it needs to be more to the left. But that's such a nit-picky thing it doens't even really matter ^_^

Eevee! He's one of my favorite pokemon. Isn't he cute! ^0^
mika-kun 2005/10/25 - 12:41:49
No doubt about it, Eevee's are pretty cool......but hey c'mon...nothing beats a Snorlax (or that one that sings and then draws on everyones faces while they are asleep)......
But seriously, cool pic!....never heard of Pokemon, is it some sort of kids program?....;)
eevee 2005/10/25 - 15:46:15
I love this picture xD
Nice poke ball background too. ;)
syzygy 2005/10/25 - 18:17:48
Fantastic! The eyes kinda creep me out, but fantastic. Where have you been? Email me!!
x_x_dragonfly_x_x 2005/10/26 - 13:13:58
AWW! It's so cute! You've made me wanna draw poekmon now. I bought Emerald yesterday and its AMAZING! ^_^

That took a while... @__@ Yay monochromaticness! We were doing human face study in art class a couple of weeks ago...
C&C MUCH appreciated!
kougra_girl 2005/10/24 - 23:3:22
ooh the colors are nice :D i like the lips. you did a nice job on the lips. XD the eye isn't too bad either!
mika-kun 2005/10/25 - 12:37:17
Excellent! no doubt about it, and certainly a great start to the wonderful world of drawing fizzogs..
A few pointers- the bottom of the face is a tad round, the chin could do with a bit of defining as basically .......she hasn't got one.
The eye could do with being a bit thinner at the bottom, to see that much white below the pupil would mean your head was tilted forewards (or you were looking up)
The eye lashes generally should follow the shape of the eye.....and artists usually cheat by drawing them en-masse rather than individually......
Of course the above is only applicable if you are trying to veer towards drawing more realistic faces.....if you aren't then I'll shut up and you can ignore me.....hehehe....:)
black_crochan 2006/1/23 - 16:24:46
*Doesn't ignore* *listens intently* *bows* Thank you, O Awesome Criticism Giver! :D

This is my longest oekaki ever and i hope that you like. A picture of Dark from DN Angel. I changed it around a little from the original. I only have the picture on my computure so I'll upload the pic for you to see later.
kougra_girl 2005/10/22 - 17:46:11
ah...dark mousy...how i love him...*daydreams*
you did a WONDERFUL job! :D i luv the coloring and the bg. very nice! <3
syzygy 2005/10/22 - 19:25:46
It looks like you drew him with colored pencil. Thats an *asesome* effect. Keep it up! This is fantastic!
p_b 2005/10/23 - 1:24:56
I really like the hard shadows on everything :)
this is really eyecatching
dark-angel 2005/10/23 - 8:32:31
Thank you everyone and I couldn't figure out how to get the picture loaded so I looked around for a while and here's the link I found [link] . It's not the exact same picture but pretty close mine didn't have any writing and the colors were a bit brighter.
x_x_dragonfly_x_x 2005/10/23 - 15:20:31
AWW! Darkie! I love this pic!
maggie_sue 2005/10/24 - 0:52:59
this loks liek it was made with colored pencils...I like it! :D
mika-kun 2005/10/25 - 12:19:33
Most impressive.....and it actually looks drawn...like on paper I mean....cool!...:)
dark-angel 2005/10/27 - 18:26:7
Thanks for the coments everyone and feel free to critique it as well.
mintyfreshchu 2005/11/3 - 9:46:21
wow, it looks really similar to the picture you linked to~
hmm, the darker shawdowy areas of the vest would look better if it's a darker tone of mahogany. rather than a black. But i looove the coloring on his arm. *saws off & keeps displayed on wall*
ryoanna 2006/4/2 - 21:15:33
wow this is awesome!! great job:-)

lorelai 2005/10/20 - 19:13:19
Wonderful, keep going man - the tones on her body are reeeally coming together!
senobdec 2005/10/21 - 12:14:4
Very cool tones....
p_b 2005/10/23 - 1:26:49
she looks ALOT like my neighbor from back in the day O_O creepy yes
i like the iron hook things on her top that's a really cool idea
mika-kun 2005/10/25 - 12:17:11
Wow!.....not just for the pic, but for amount of improvement you have shown recently.....I'm glad you enjoyed drawing this, as I think everyone will agree we have enjoyed seeing it. well done Phil keep it up man.....:)
maggie_sue 2005/11/2 - 15:36:2

I don't know where to put this. ._____.
Started out as a Redraw An Old Pic (for theme room), but then I got annoyed and turned it into fanart. Huzzah.
Hunter class from the MMORPG, International Ragnarok Online (owner, Gravity; creator, Lee Myoung Jin).
cessy 2005/10/18 - 21:27:59
I really really like this! The hawk (I think?) looks wicked, and I love the simplicity in her face. Great flow of the hair too! :)
lorelai 2005/10/20 - 19:13:43
Gorgeous! I love your lines. ;o;
mika-kun 2005/10/25 - 12:9:4
Great pic, very impressive......but I have to say that is one most awesome bird in the corner....yay!...:)
gleeful1 2005/11/21 - 1:5:2
i like this one a lot! the composition really caught my eye... nice perspective, and that bird just makes the piece very special =) great work!

xhewasnt--x 2005/10/16 - 23:40:5
I am drawing here again, because I felt you didn't get to see the real style I draw. Anyways. This is it. My style.
elleinad 2005/10/18 - 17:29:58
It reminds me of stained glass!
A very uniqe style.
lorelai 2005/10/18 - 19:26:31
Very bold and beautiful :)
p_b 2005/10/23 - 1:30:13
I think your lines need some work. They're kinda jittery and run past eachother and stuff. A little clean up on the lines would give your next picture a more refined look.
xhewasnt--x 2005/10/23 - 1:44:38
Okay, P_B, you're absolutley right. Does anyone have tips on smooth lineart?
mika-kun 2005/10/25 - 12:3:59
I certainly like the style, I think making the background follow the stained glass effect might be cool......IE- keep it the same but break it up a bit with the lines.....
For smooth linework I build up the pic with the pen tool set at low to medium on the opacity, using small strokes (like you would colour) to make it up to the hardness I require...then use the soft erase (1-2 pixels medium to high opacity) to smooth out any bumps - I might throw up a quick sketch room tutorial on smooth linework this weekend.....:D
p_b 2005/10/25 - 20:13:56
Some of the things you should keep in mind while cleaning up line art are 1.) your lines shouldn't cross eachother (like how the line for her chin runs into her hair) and 2.) if the line width varies it should vary for a reason, usualy it's thicker in places where there would be a shadows.
This was drawn with a solid black pencil line just like yours and will show you what i mean if i've confused you

cessy 2005/10/18 - 21:29:11

protego 2007/1/27 - 14:22:54
