    Default Souku's Project 365: Pokémon 2



    __________________________________________________ __________
    ________Welcome to Souku's 365 Project: Pokémon ... 2013!________

    For those of us who are new: What is the 365 Project? It is a project where
    you decide to do something every single day for 365 days. You do anything
    from photography to drawing to baking something new every day; it doesn't
    matter what you do, the main thing is that you keep up what you have chosen
    for one whole year.

    For my 365 Project I chose to follow a theme: Pokémon. This year's project is
    a direct continuation of my 2012 one, so I'll be drawing the half of Pokédex that
    I didn't get to do last year. I will be documenting my progress here everday, so
    make sure you bookmark this thread and check back often!

    Now without further ado: let's draw ALL the pokémon!

    Day 58 - Spinda
    27th February 2013





    I'm sorry to say that my internet has started acting
    up again, which prevented me from updating. I did
    manage to update on 3/5 sites where I upload, so I
    did actually finish this pic before the end of the day.
    I don't know for how long my internet will be dodgy,
    so if I don't manage to update again... there's your
    reason.

    That said, SPINDA. I like how its spots are unique on
    each individual... and that's about all that I like about
    it. |D It was a relatively fun Pokémon to draw though.

    Hey there! When you said that you're gonna finish all of this, it made me and I'm sure others pretty happy to know that you'll be doing the rest of the remaining Pokes here. At least it gives you something to do. I agree with you there, we can achieve anything. Noticeably enough, during the last year, as it progressed, there were improvements in your already great artworks and like last year, I'll be supporting you in this project and I'll be checking this out as daily as possible!

    Tynamo - Anyways, off to a good start and It's good that you did a group pic this time. I like the colors used especially their contrast with the background giving it a glowing kind of effect. Great start to kick off the year.

    Great start and once again I'm so glad you're continuing this into another year. May 2013 be just as gorgeous as 2012 was!

    Yay, I'm so glad to see you guys in the new thread! <33 Thank you so much for your comments and I hope you guys will be entertained for the rest of the year. I also hope that my drawing/colouring skills will improve some more this year, haha. Anyways, something new I'll be doing this year will be documenting my daily commentary in this thread as, I believe, a couple of people who don't check back every day would've liked to read them too. Usually my commentary isn't that important, haha, but there you go. That said, here's days 1 and 2.

    Day 01 - Tynamo
    1st January 2013

    ... now as much as I want to say, "we're off to an electrifying start", I can't really since well... Tynamo's pic isn't all that dynamic. :b But it's an electric pokémon so I guess it still works!

    That said, happy new year, everyone! I hope this year brings you all great fortune and happiness, and that you achieve everything you set out to achieve! Remember: don't say "I can't", say "I can -- and I will!"


    ----

    Day 02 - Galvantula
    2nd January 2013

    Here we are, continuing the electric streak with a galvantula! I kind of wonder if tomorrow will also be an electric pokémon ... but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Anyway, I must admit, I've got a friend who is deathly afraid of insects (and especially spiders) so I try not to draw these kinds of pokémon too realistically anymore. I very much enjoy the more stylised illustrations anyway, and Galvantula was no exception. Its electric silk stuns something awful. Don't get caught in its web!

    holy moly! never thought anything based on a spider could be so beautiful.
    totally love it!

    i think it's fun to post what was written for each day too. i always loved reading what you wrote each day. and still remember some of it when i look at the pics again.
    so its nice to have that for late comers.

    I've been a lurker since Project 365 (about mid-way) and I think now is a good time to congratulate you.

    Your art is amazing, I just love so many of them. I would like reading the captions too, and I would miss some the other times. If you're going to post them like that, then the experience is going to be even better. ^_^

    Keep up the great work!

    Aw thanks, you two! I must say, it's really nice to have lurkers post every once in a while because it's great to know who is following along! <3 Glad you like the galvantula, rosierjay, it was very fun to draw.

    For Day 03, we have a spoinkeh. I remember the first time I encountered one in Ruby, I thought "Wow, this is a crazy-looking pokémon."

    Day 03 - Spoink
    3rd January 2013

    Just an hour long pic today as I had a number of things to do during the day. Honestly I've always thought Spoink was interesting because it has to keep bouncing around in order to live. And that is totally what this one is doing.

    Nice to see that you're also posting your comments on the days and the Pokemon. Of course, I'll be subscribing to this thread like your last one. Anyways, on to my comments.

    Galvantula - I admit that I like spiders, but for some reason, I kinda don't like this Pokemon. But you drew this thing so awesomely. One of the best pics you did for a bug-type. Really impressive.
    Spoink - I kinda overlook this thing and I have to admit, it is pretty weird. I'll say this, it is impressive for something done over the course of an hour.

    I am so glad to see this is continuing, throughout the last year i made sure to check the newest pieces to your project at least once a week the quality and creativity in your reinterpretation of them is at times breathtaking.

    I look forward to checking out the new batch you put out as you continue to sketch 'em all (oh god I felt kinda lame typing that).

    Thanks, guys! I seriously can't tell you all how much I appreciate you watching on and leaving comments when you can.

    @ nathandg0924 - Thank you! I'm glad you like the Galvantula as it really was a blast to draw. While I can't say I'm all that fond of spiders, I certainly find them fascinating. Like you, I don't really like Galvantula as much as I like other spider pokémon like Ariados and Spinarak (purely from an aesthetic point of view since those two are a bit too terrible to use in battle).

    Day 04 - Seel
    4th January 2013

    I had a couple of ideas as to how to draw Seel, with one being to have the fat thing sleeping on some iceberg, but in the end I settled with drawing it swimming. It's in its natural element and is a graceful swimmer, so it was fitting. It is also similar to the dewgong drawn sometime in early 2012.

    ----

    Day 05 - Combusken
    5th January 2013

    Hrooaahh! Combusken. Honestly I've always loved this dude's name, it just sounds so strong... like its kicks. Apparently. Since the dex says its kicks have "outstanding destructive power", I figured I should draw it in such a pose. It actually was very difficult getting a decent enough pose and, being real tired, I kind of fell asleep halfway through drawing it. <_< But anyway, here it is: the fighting chicken.

    @ General Nonsense: Thanks! It's never too late to join in watching a 365 project, and there is still the whole of 2013 ahead after all!

    @ rosierjay: Aww, thank you! I'm glad you liked the last few pics. I loved drawing all those pokémon, especially Seel and the flaming foot of Combusken. |D

    For Day 06 we have a dragonair.

    Day 06 - Dragonair
    6th January 2013

    Sometimes I get this really cool idea in my head, and I think it's going to look super nice and everything, but then I go and ruin it when I attempt to draw it out. ): Dragonair's pic was meant to be much nicer, but alas it was not to be. Haha. I think I spent about as much time drawing/colouring it as I did trying to fix it up. Sad times.

    Very nice! The dragonair looks lonely, makes me want to take it on an adventure.

    Nice job on Combusken too! I like how detailed you've been!

    And Dragonair ... Who says you messed up? Dragonair is really great! =D
