Shining Charizard

Welcome 2021 Pokemon Fan Art time. This is my very favorite and best piece so far – The Shining Charizard. I hope you like it! Charizard was my first favorite Pokemon back when Pokemon Red was relevant. I always breezed through content with Charizard. He was my go to, to finish most games. This is my first attempt of making realistic fire. I love the small details like the scales and smoke. I also like how the playing of light came out.

Skyward Togekiss

My personal favorite pokemon Togekiss. Entry number 3 to the Pokemon Fan Gallery. I was inspired by beams of light coming down from the sky. I thought it would be a nice touch for this next painting. I always started and finished the game with this pokemon, it was always the go to for breezing through content. Please enjoy.

The Death and New Chance at Life

I took a long hiatus due to mental illness. I wanted to spend some time to myself and grow. I decided the best way to get better was to work on my art. I’ve always had a soft spot for a franchise called Pokemon. Where you breed, train and raise wild pocket monsters. I’ve always wanted to create my own pokemon and It always excited me to design something of my own and contribute to the pokemon community. For the past 2 years I was fighting off a mental illness that put alot of doubt into me. I am now back.. and I have new tools and inspiration to create more but something different this time. Instead of poetry and light blogs. I’m going to apply myself to create reimaginations of animals, fictional monsters and folklore mythical creatures. It might be cute and it might come out an abomination.

The two years I took to recover will not be in vain because I am going to get better and better at what I do. Visual story telling and background painting to an all new high. There’s a gold mine of creativity that I’m about to untap this year. I’m going to do something I didn’t think I had in me. I have reflected and I have mourned my brother’s passing due to depression. I’m going to do something with my time; working on what ever form of productivity that may come from this day forward.

This is the first of my art this year. I will be focusing mainly on my favorite pokemon.. Since that is what kept me sane for the last 2 years; playing and replaying the new nintendo series game; Pokemon sword and shield. And now also New Pokemon Snap. Thank you to all who stuck by me when I was at my lowest. Literally I felt like I had died some where along the way.. but i’m back. I hope everyone is well with the Covid rampant every where. Please look forward to new posts and pictures!!
