I draw cards for birthdays and holidays because I’m cheap, but I drop hundreds of dollars on digital garbage for mobile games because I’m dumb.
I’ve been drawing that old Super Mario enemy, the Battle Beetle, and other assorted video game characters for my grandparents a lot and round owls for my dad. It used to just be an assorted Judgement Owl™, an owl with Judging Eyebrows™, but now it’s Rowlet.
Slapping some lines on a traditionally-drawn picture of Rowlet for Pokécember and/or Chrimbus.
Merr Chrimbo, everybody! And Happ Hankuuh, as well! (Are there any other holidays that I can bastardize the names of?)
It was a dead heat, really, between Rowlet and Cyndaquil for my favorite Starter Pokémon, but I ultimately went with Rowlet because I drew one on traditional media yesterday for a Christmas card. I just took a picture with my phone (because my scanner’s given up the ghost) and gave it some real crisp lines for today.
There’s a LOT of Ghost-type Pokémon that I really like. Sableye, Decidueye, Froslass, Rotom, Mimikyu… There’s so many.
Anyways, here’s a shiny Trevenant, of which I have one thanks to Horde farming in Pokémon X & Y for it. I was originally going to include Decidueye on it’s arm but, remembering the “Noctowl is 5 times taller than Rowlet” debacle earlier, I decided to check their heights first. Fun fact: both Noctowl and Decidueye are taller than Trevenant is.
So, I’m doing some tandem pieces as I go through the Pokécember challenge. I was originally going to do the Grass-type with the Ice-type much later on, but I decided to just do Rowlet today and possibly go the whole nine yards when we get to the 14th.
Anyways, I severely underestimated the size difference between Rowlet’s 1 foot and Noctowl’s full FIVE FOOT HEIGHT. Even after shrinking Rowlet down, I still feel that it’s too large. Also not round enough.
I have a fair few Grass-type Pokémon that I like, but I felt that the tandem piece would be best for the two owl Pokémon.
