soc_puppet: Dreamsheep as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time (Default)
I kinda felt like I was spamming yesterday, so here's a couple more belatedly:

The Pokemon Chandelure

Chandelure (I don't have a good title for this one)

Guess who finally figured out a good Pokemon color match for the Nonbinary Pride flag? This person!

Now a shirt!

Gardevoir, Milotic, and Chandelure say that Trans is Beautiful

Trans Is Beautiful Trio

Updated from the first version, which only had Gardevoir and Milotic. (I absolutely cheated on sizing for Chandelure; I'll probably tweak it a bit for the final version that'll go up on TeePublic, but this works better for coloring, IMO.) I always planned to go back and include the Nonbinary Pride colors as soon as I could figure out a good match for them, it just took a bit longer than I expected - plus there was the Redbubble merge, and I was a bit paranoid about that, so. Anyway, finalized TeePublic art is forthcoming! In the mean time, feel free to print and color :Db

Edit: Shirt now available! It turned out really fantastic too, OMG ♥

At last, the culmination of months of sporadic work: The Pokemon Ragtime Show!

Ragtime-themed Totodile

First is Totodile, originally drawn for Pokemon GO's Totodile Community Day.

Ragtime trio Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile

Here's the whole trio together, all ready for the show. It feels like something's missing, though...

Ragtime-themed Pichu

That's it! That's what we need! We need one more Pokemon to make this...

Ragtime pokemon quartet Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Pichu

...A Pokemart Quartet! Appearing soon at the radio station in Goldenrod City!

Bonus:

Pichu running for a hug

The Pichu I had to draw first so I could get the hat right :P

I decided to go through and simplify my first batch of Pokemon coloring pages, removing the concentric lines to make them easier to color. I've got a few more to post after this, including the conclusion(?) of the Ragtime Pokemon set, but some of them still need some editing, and I don't want to do an absolutely huge image dump right off the bat.

Here we go! Click on the thumbnails for nice, big, printable versions of the coloring pages.

Woo, got these all finished and scanned!

Ditto meets Mimikyu

"Mimic"

What happens when a look-a-like meets a look-a-liker? Instant cute, that's what! Ditto is mid-transformation so it's easier to tell which one it is. I... really couldn't think of any better ideas to display Ditto in all of its Ditto-ness.

Lineart of Cyndaquil, Quilava, and Typhlosion

"Cyndaquil Family Portrait"

Companion piece to the Chikorita Family Portrait, because why not. Starters are popular, and I really liked the way the first one turned out, so I figured I'd continue the theme. Also inspired by next weekend's PoGo Community Day. We'll see how people like it :) (I really did want to do something similar for last month's CD, but it turns out that Beldum is pretty hard to draw!)

Lineart of Cyndaquil with a straw hat and cane

"Hello My Cindi"

Part two of the four(?) part Pokemart Trio set! Another companion piece to a previous Chikorita page. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out; I was really unsure how I was going to pose Cyndaquil before I drew it, but it looks super cute, and a lot more confident than I initially expected. Totodile will be next to round out the set. and then I plan to smoosh them all together into one image for the full effect.

Chikorita in a Mismagius costume

"Trick-or-Treat-a"

In honor of Halloween, and because it's cute and it rhymes. Also Chikorita is surprisingly fun to draw? No complaints here!

Charmander handing an egg to Murkrow

"Return"

One of my local Pokemon Go friends is quite fond of my coloring pages, and mentioned that if I ever had any of Charmander, Murkrow, or Ditto, she would love them, since those are her son's favorite Pokemon. I had actually been vaguely looking/hoping for some more non-Community Day/non-Pride shirt coloring page ideas, and promptly took her remark as a prompt ;) I could only manage these two in one drawing, but Ditto will be following up shortly in a pic with Mimikyu (that I still need to scan).

Bidoof leaning on a log with a bi pride symbol

"Bi Doof"

Speaking of Pride shirts, here's Bi Doof Bidoof! I'd been wanting to do something with that pun ever since it occurred to me, lol. I am a bi doof, and I own it. My only regret is that the purple stripe in the bi pride flag is such a dull shade, even compared to the navy blue; I really wish it popped a bit more. Maybe I'll re-color the shirt if I manage to find someplace other than TeePublic to take my stuff.

Gardevoir and Milotic say that Trans is Beautiful

"Trans is Beautiful"

Holy cats, I almost missed this one! Anyway, [personal profile] redsixwing initially suggested Milotic as a subject, since its colors are basically the same as the Trans Pride flag. After some thought, I came up with Gardevoir as one with colors nearly the same as the Genderqueer Pride flag. Since Gardevoir is commonly thought of as a particularly lovely Pokemon, and Milotic is traditionally only available by making a rather shabby looking fish as beautiful as possible, I thought this was a fitting theme for the two of them. I have yet to come up with a Pokemon who is nearly Nonbinary Pride colored, but I'm sure I will sooner or later. (Pachirisu, maybe...? Turn those stripes purple, lean a bit more on the outline...)

Absol, the Disaster Pokemon

In addition to Milotic, [personal profile] redsixwing suggested tying Absol into the popular "Disaster Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Etc" meme. I loved the idea, but hadn't gotten around to incorporating text or anything before the announcement that RedBubble had acquired TeePublic. If I ever find another site to sell through, I'm planning on doing some recolors of Absol for the Disaster Queer shirts.

I had really hoped to have Absol laying down with a paw over its face, as if hiding from the world, but couldn't make the pose turn out right on paper. Still, Petulant!Absol is a pretty good compromise in my opinion.

---

I think that's all for now. In addition to the upcoming Ditto-and-Mimikyu pic, I've also got a Cyndaquil family portrait I'm working on for November's PoGo Community Day. I've got the rough done already, and really just need to tighten up the lines before I start inking. Hopefully I'll have a new shirts-and-stuff site before I get around to a Totodile family portrait.

More shirts

Three new shirts at my TeePublic account, all with a similar theme:

Trans Is Beautiful, Gardevoir and Milotic

Trans Is Beautiful, Just Milotic

Trans Is Beautiful, Just Gardevoir

I'm probably going to see if I can come up with a Pokemon to recolor for Nonbinary, though it's not currently a priority. (Suggestions still welcome, though!) I'm pretty pleased with how these turned out, either way. Oh, and I'm going to try and get the coloring page version of the duo up after I get some sleep.


Special thanks to [personal profile] redsixwing for suggesting Milotic as a subject!

Lineart of Chikorita, Bayleaf, and Meganium, clustered together as if posing for a picture

"Chikorita Family Portrait"

For lack of a better title :P I didn't exactly go all out looking for an ability or move that fit this one. Anyway, here's the lineart I used to make my first shirt on TeePublic, if anyone wants to color one for themself :3b


Lineart of Chikorita with a hat and cane

"Hello, My Chiko"

Also for lack of a better title 9_9a I made both of these for Chikorita Community Day in Pokemon Go. I've got super vague plans to make the other three Johto starters in similar setups as well, especially the dancing one; I really want to put all three starters together as a team like that for a picture (and probably a shirt). Next one will probably be, "Hello, My Cindi", followed by "Hello, My Toto-diiiile~!", just to help the theme come through ;) I do plan to look for a title more along the lines of my traditional naming scheme once I get all three of them together, though.


Oh, Wish is now a shirt as well, if you care to go check that out :)b I think it looks really great on light blue, myself. "Unaware", the one with Slowbro and the angry Shellder, is next in line, though I'm not entirely sure after that.
soc_puppet: Dreamsheep as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time (Default)
The story is, I drew a couple of coloring pages for Pokemon Go's Chikorita Community Day, and at least two people were all, "I want that on a shirt. Can you put that on a shirt? Because I would spend actual money to wear that on a shirt."

And one of our other local PoGo-ers was already designing themed stuff for our use, so I figured: Why not!

Anyway, you can check it out here. 30% off until absurd o'clock on Friday morning! At which point I'll probably add at least one more of my coloring page designs, because this is surprisingly fun???

Also I'll try and upload the original coloring page sometime soon, because coloring, yay!

Pokemon ideas:

* Fire/Fairy cockatiel, possibly with heart-shaped cheek spots
* Ice/Bug snail with a snowball for a "shell"; leaves trails of ice behind it. Evolved form has one of those Japanese two-ball snowmen for a shell. (Optional: Go completely nuts and add a Western three-ball snowman for a third evo. Dunno how to make it visually balanced, though.)
* Dark/Fairy hummingbird, brightly/pleasantly colored to hide its sinister nature
* Fire/Grass pepper; starts bell pepper shaped with a smoldering stem tip, evolves into more of a curly hot pepper with a burning stem
* Water type coconut octopus; "mimic"/trap Pokemon (same vein as Voltorb, Foongus) that uses discarded Pokeballs to hide from predators. The ball it's hiding in will change appearance to match the one it's caught with. Has "Pickup" ability. Possible evo???
* Grass/Flying spice-themed quail -> pheasant -> turkey line; similar to Farfetch'd, but domesticated for its delicious flavor rather than endangered. (I know pheasants were already covered by the Pidove line, but I really wanted it to be three stage and couldn't think of a better middle stage. And it's not like Pokemon hasn't been redundant before.)
* Grass/Flying fruitbat with emphasis on fruit?
* Steel/Poison sea urchin line: Steel to chow down on anything in the ocean, poison to keep predators at bay; gets pointier/gnarlier when it evolves
* Fire/Water teapot elephant; evolves into a full blown tea kettle elephant. Learns Scald very early.
* Water type two-stage clownfish, emphasis on clown.

*pulls self out of the dregs of December, panting* Okay, I made it!

So I'm officially calling myself "mostly back to normal for me" and have a cute new coloring page to celebrate. Behold!

Cleffa in the moon and stars

"Wish"

I feel like this is a good one for the upcoming new year :3 Also it's just super cute. It was originally going to be Suppi-chan, as a companion to Kero-chan/Guardian of the Sun - then I remembered that Suppi-chan is also sun-themed, but didn't want to erase the pretty darn good moon I'd already drawn, so I decided to use it for someone else. Someday I'll get to Suppi-chan, but it may take a while :P

I may also make a more complicated/detailed version of this with my concentric fill-in lines at some point, but I really liked it as a simple drawing, so I decided to scan a "cleaner" version of it first. This version can hang out with Unaware in the Easier To Color pile. ...Possibly I'll also turn it into an icon; it's got good dimensions for it.

The Pokemon Vivillon with wings that resemble the Puerto Rico flag, lower wings with inverted red and blue

Puerto Rico Pattern Vivillon are complete! I decided to go with my second version, which I liked better anyway, but even moreso after coloring them both in. I also colored a version with all four wings like the flag instead of the bottom ones with colors switched, which you can click to here:

The Pokemon Vivillon with wings that resemble the Puerto Rico flag

And the lineart if you want to color your own can be found by clicking this pic:

I am 100% cool with these being used for general FLPR promotional stuff, if anyone is interested in doing so.

(I know I already did a New Fandom Announcement post, but I really feel like this structure works particularly well for this fandom, so I'm posting this anyway.)

A wild Fandom appeared!

MIRACULOUS LADYBUG used IDENTITY SHENANIGANS; SOCCHAN became confused!

SOCCHAN is confused; it hurt itself in its confusion!

MIRACULOUS LADYBUG used MOBIUS PINING. It's super effective!

SOCCHAN fainted.

SOCCHAN is out of usable Brains. SOCCHAN whited out.

...

If you think my brain isn't also tormenting me with Pokemon AU details, you would be thinking wrong.

(The kwamis are Totem Pokemon and the Miraculouses are Z-stones that are locked to them and have super unique Z-moves. If used together, Destructium-Z and Creatium-Z would summon Arceus or something??? Plagg is an Absol (ask me why!), Tikki is a Ledian, Nooroo is a Venomoth, and I need to stop now send help please.)

So I don't have Pokemon Sun and/or Moon yet, partly because post-car-purchase finances, and partly because I got a secondhand copy of Y and I'm in the middle of a playthrough and don't want to be distracted and completely forget where I left off. Anyway, no game yet, but I'm still quite excited to get a copy, which will probably happen for my birthday at the very latest, and possibly earlier, depending on Black Friday sales.

Since I am so excited, I've been keeping an eye on spoilers at Serebii.net, and decided to go through all the new Pokemon today. And I got to Jangmo-o, and I saw its shiny form and, well.

Tell me it doesn't look like a magical girl mascot/companion animal to you. I mean, a very grumpy one, but gold body color with pink trim and a massive pink heart smack-dab in the middle of its forehead? Definitely magical girl material.

Sadly, the evolutions are not quite as fitting, but the line itself is still pretty dang cool.
soc_puppet: Dreamsheep on the Pokemon GO location background (Pokesheep Go)
New icon, whee! I finally made some Pokemon GO icons. I'll probably be sharing them over at [community profile] dreamsheep sometime in the near future, but not tonight because I stayed up too late making them already :P

I need to make more Pokemon icons as well, but tired, so. (My favorite plan is to make one with Dreamsheep as Mareep, because obvs. But there will probably be others as well.)
soc_puppet: Dreamsheep as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time (Default)
There's an Eevee nest somewhere in my area, but I'm too lazy to go and find it.

On the plus side, I have essentially located two other spawn points for rare and semi-rare Pokemon in my area, so that's nice.

I also intend to make some proper Pokemon GO icons, but that may take a while.

In not entirely unrelated news, here is the story of how my brother proposed to his girlfriend, and how she proposed back :D
soc_puppet: Dreamsheep as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time (Default)
Just caught a 530 Venusaur :DDD

I've been seeing rare and semi-rare Pokemon "in the area" for like a week now, and decided to pass up on them the past few times I saw them, because I figured they'd come around again. Well, the last one I passed up on was a Scyther, and when I saw that Venusaur silhouette today, I was like, No. No, I'm going for it.

And I caught that grumpy flower toad >:D First time I've seen a wild starter or evolution that wasn't a Squirtle (my own starter, incidentally), and I catch the sucker! Between this and snagging a Dratini last night, I am quite pleased :3

That said, it was humid as a frog's armpit out there, so even though I was walking for less than fifteen minutes, I still could use a shower :P

So the big boss of the bad guy team in Sun and Moon has been leaked, and...

Spoilers! )

In other news, I need to make myself a Pokemon icon or two. But probably not until after I crochet some more stuff.
soc_puppet: Words "In Real Life" in green (Now showing in 3D)
Argh, there's a frickin' Exeggcute in my neighborhood, but I don't have the energy to try and find it! Especially since the footprint thing isn't working [for me/anymore]. (Seriously, did the footprint thing just go away completely, or is it just my phone?) There was a Polywag when I got home from work, a Polywhirl last night, and an Exeggcutor and two Pikachu a few nights ago, none of which I've gotten.

On the plus side, I did manage to snag a cp527 Tentacruel on a bathroom break this morning, so that's cool. I'm currently at level twelve and have joined Team Mystic, because Articuno has always been my favorite of that trio. My workplace has three individual PokeStops, at least one of which I can reach from the employee break room, and downtown there's a huge swath of PokeStops in something like a three block radius. Like, over twenty huge swath. I'm also completely shameless about the fact that my GPS is a little faulty and registers me in slightly different places every few minutes or so while I'm relaxing in bed. Very useful for hatching eggs. Or, well, not that useful, but it makes up for that first day when it couldn't find the PokeStop I was standing right next to.


In 3D space news, my car has a fuel leak :/ I took it in about a month ago as soon as it began having trouble starting, but the mechanics couldn't find anything/reproduce the problem. In the time since then, the problem got a little worse, the owner of the shop suggested it was the fuel injectors acting up and that it would probably be fine as long as I just let the car sit in "on" for a minute or two before starting the engine, the problem got a lot worse, and on Friday afternoon I made an appointment to drop off the car on Monday. Friday saw the car eating up twice as much fuel as usual; today it used more like four times as much as usual, and there was a puddle in the parking place where I had been at work. Getting this fixed will definitely be cheaper in the long run, though I really wish we could've figured it out and fixed it when I brought it in the first time. Though at least they didn't charge me anything for that first appointment, since their testing device said nothing was wrong.

Anyway, the money from the Staff Art Table should help with that a bit. And hours are going to be picking up at work as well, since classes will be starting again soon, so that'll help, too.


And now I think it's food time, while I continue to rest my aching feet. More work tomorrow, and then the car goes into the shop.
soc_puppet: Dreamsheep as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time (Default)
Anyone know if the security risk for Pokemon GO has been fixed? Or if it's limited to certain devices? Because I've got my ultra fancy new phone (Moto-G4 with Android), and my brother has reassured me that I have more than enough data to run the game without going over, so that's my final major concern.
