    Default Project Lavender ('Draw em All') by Quinnzel [Renewed - 6/4/13]

    [ ~ RENEWED as of 6/4/2013 ~ ]

    Well, I said I'd try again in June and here we are! Plenty of time on my hands now
    when I'm not filling Etsy orders. Okay! I'll be changing things up a little bit.
    The style of the line art will remain consistent. I really dig it for what I'm trying to
    achieve here. The coloring methods may differ however. I plan on using the project
    to experiment with blending, brushes, etc. as well as just having fun.

    On a side-note, I am a bit sad to see Souku's project gone upon my return. I hope
    she returns to it someday!

    [ ~ Project Lavender ~ ]
    by Quinnzel

    Greetings and welcome to Project Lavender! I must say I've been thinking
    about doing this ever since the wonderful Souku first started his own one-a-
    day Pokémon project last year. I made several attempts in 2012 to kick-start
    my own project but none ever made it past a few days. I just couldn't get
    inspired and keep up with it. Well, this year I feel very differently. I put a lot of
    money into buying a pro tablet (a Wacom Intuos5 if you must know) last year
    so dangit, I'm going to use the heck out of it!

    So what's my spin? Well, similar to Souku's Project 365, it's RNG based. I only
    know what Pokémon set I'm drawing next after I've finished the current one.
    They will be done one evolution set at a time at my leisure. I'm not going to
    promise one a day like before, but I'll try not to let too much time pass between
    them. My inspiration? Psychedelia. Confusion. Madness. Comedy. Of course,
    it's called Project Lavender after Lavender Town. The Pokémon I'll be drawing
    aren't necessarily meant to be scary or disturbing, but I do hope they can provoke
    some sort of reaction be it a slight giggle or a "wtf?" or even "I hate this thing."

    To answer a question you might already have, yes, Generation 6 Pokémon will
    be shuffled into the mix as soon as X & Y are released (or as they are
    revealed).

    Now, you! You can help by commenting and giving me feedback. My
    inspiration and motivation is more likely to stick around if I have some support
    to back up my efforts! Don't worry, I can take any criticism you throw at me.
    Thank you for even clicking on this thread! May your curious eyes be
    entertained.

    #001 - Exeggcute
    January 1, 2013

    Kicking off the year with Exeggcute. The RNG was kind to me today. Perhaps the eggs could have been a bit more defined, but this thing was already pushing 4 hours as it was. Must get better. Must get faster.

    #002 - Dewott
    January 2, 2013

    I'll admit, I'm not a fan of the way this one turned out. Any attempt to shade it came out looking blotchy and sickly and I tried three or four different ways of doing it until I was eventually forced to settle on the dreaded burn tool. I didn't even have time to fill in a proper background.

    However, I had a lot of fun with the line art. I'd like to go into further detail next time... and I should probably start earlier in the day on these as well instead of waiting until the last few hours.

    #003 - Kakuna
    January 3, 2013

    I think I'll stick with the no background thing and focus on making the Pokémon more psychedelic and ridonkulous. There wasn't a lot to be done with Kakuna since he has a very blocky design, but I like this one better than Dewott. The lineart was again fun and so was his... eh... tie.

    #004 - Cresselia
    January 4, 2013

    Cresselia. What is this thing I don't even know. I thought it's little pink flap things on the front looked like arms although I've never seen them extended as such. Well. If they weren't arms before, they're arms now. Kind of. Big pink blobby arms. Yeah.
    Tumblr Tags: #somebody tell me what cresselia actually is #i really don't know

    #005 - Tynamo
    January 5, 2013

    I was brainstorming this all day and I think I got exactly what was in my mind this time. That's a good sign. It'll make the details on Pokémon later in the project much easier. This is probably my favorite of the lot so far.

    #006 - Landorus
    January 6, 2013

    Phew! I almost didn't make this one in time but I finished roughly 11:30pm. There was a minor family emergency. I also messed up the line art a little bit on the head by drawing directly on my original sketch layer. I didn't have time to just redraw it. Because of all the setbacks, the coloring didn't get the typical time and attention I like to give it. Also, can I just say I really don't care for these stupid genie legendary things? I'm not a fan of the designs nor typing. Even their Therian Forms look stupid. Ugh.

    #007 - Manaphy
    January 7, 2013

    Still dealing with the minor family emergency so I'm thankful that RNG gave me a simple Pokémon today. Shortest amount of time spent on one of these yet. Only took me a couple hours to get it on paper to the finishing touches.

    #008 - Chespin
    January 8, 2013

    Well, obviously this isn't Electrike. I decided to just go ahead and do the three Gen 6 starters for the next few days since they're brand new and pretty exciting! I love all of them, but Froakie is easily my favorite. It's a little hard to get a feel and intuition for things that are so fresh... I didn't get a lot of time to really think about it, but I think it came out alright nonetheless.
    Tumblr Tags: #**** chespin but I have amazing ideas for froakie hahahahaha

    #009 - Fennekin
    January 9, 2013

    Oh, Fennekin... with your tiny little neck and big bushy tail and hairy old man ears. Seriously, in the official art of this thing, it's head is bigger than it's body. Go look at it. Go ahead, I'll just wait here. I had a really rough time on the fur with this piece. Not necessarily because it was hard, it was just so goddamn boring. Gotta find a new way to do it I guess.
    Tumblr Tags: #even in the official art it's head is bigger than it's body

    #010 - Froakie
    January 10, 2013

    Froakie is definitely my favorite of the three new starters and will certainly be my pick when I get Y in October. This is one of my favorites in the series so far next to Tynamo. He's all drunk. And high. And tripping. And lord knows what else. I've been experimenting around with shading and color. Nothing too fascinating, but it might change the way things look in the future.
    Tumblr Tags: #go home froakie you're drunk... and high

    #011 - Electrike
    January 11, 2013

    I went for a simpler outline this time so I could focus on a new fur technique. I think it worked quite well for the first go. I would like to find a happy medium between the two where I can make the outline just as ridiculous as some of the previous in the series and at the same time maintain a good coloring standard. Oh yeah. And I gave him claws. He looked like a royal wimp without them.

    I would say you copied Souku but these look pretty great :3 I love the creepy theme to all of them. They remind me of all the freaky close-up scenes in Spongebob.

    That Froakie is disgusting. Awesome.

    @Skyler 99 - Souku was definitely a huge inspiration to do this. I've been thinking about it for a long time! I swiped his layout because it's perfect and he's got it down to a science. Also, those close-up art stills in Spongebob were always my favorite part of the show. Thank you!

    #012 - Kyurem
    January 12, 2013

    I actually finished this one 30 minutes past midnight. I only had a couple hours to work on it at most so I had to sacrifice the coloring. As a result, Kyurem looks rather... dirty. I really need to stop leaving these things to the end of the day.

    #013 - Gastly
    January 13, 2013

    Yay, I finished early for once! I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do with Gastly though I veered off course and wound up with lots of "happy accidents" as Bob Ross might say. He's a big floating smile of rainbow... stuff. Ended up quite a bit darker than I anticipated... I'll just have to live with that. Always learning!

    January 14, 2013

    I was kind of bored with the style so I threw some flair on it. Silly flair. Really silly flair. I oversaturated the living hell out of him and just let my mind go nuts on the extra details. Yeah. I don't know what happened either... but I kind of like it.

    Bumping this up a little. Just to let everyone know, the thread will always be updated by midnight with whatever that day's drawing was.

    #015 - Taillow
    January 15, 2013

    Okay, this was definitely a little inspired by the Game Grumps when JonTron said "Twitchy-*** Taillow" during their run of Pokémon Emerald. I had a pretty clear vision and this is another one that turned out exactly how I had it in my mind. It makes me laugh, so I hope you get some joy out of it too.

    #016 - Arceus
    January 16, 2013

    What is up with RNG giving me so many darned legendaries? I'm barely halfway through the first month and I've already done five! That's nuts. I've never been a big fan of Arceus. I don't really dig the idea of an all-powerful Pokémon god (akin to my beliefs in real life lol). His design is rather sci-fi... I couldn't really figure out what was up with the big ol' ball in his midsection though. I just made it a mass of tumors.

    Eh. Nuzleaf kinda blows. I was going to do a reference to the Nuzlocke series by drawing John Locke's head on him, but I ultimately decided against it. I was thinking of potatoes the entire time I was drawing him. I don't really know why...

    Thank you guys for the comments on Masquerain! I do believe it marks the end of that particular style from here on out.

    #019 - Bellsprout
    January 19, 2013

    I didn't want to do the Pokémon I was supposed to do today (Totodile) because I lacked the time to make it precisely the way I want it to be. I just had my friend pick a number and went with that. Bellsprout. Spent only maybe 10 minutes on it, give or take. You can really see how little I gave a **** about it so I won't be submitting it to any groups. Maybe nobody will notice.
    Tumblr Tags: #clearly i gave all the shits about this look how wonderfully awful it is omg

    #020 - Totodile
    January 20, 2013

    I'm shifting away from the normal style into sketchy speedpaints. I realize with school starting in a few days and my wanting to blossom in other areas of art, I have to shift around a little bit. The ideas will remain largely the same, I'll just be kicking up the pace. This of course leaves a lot of room for imperfection, but I think they'll only get better as we go along.

    #021 - Weavile
    January 21, 2013

    Trying to refine the style a little more using deeper blacks and such. Weavile turned out better that Totodile but ist still far from perfect. We'll see where this goes in the next few days.

    I actually did this one this morning (on the 24th) because for whatever reason, I was just having a really hard time trying to figure it out last night. I was fighting with myself on the subject of style... ultimately I decided that since I scaled the pictures down a little (there was really no reason for them to be as huge as they were), I still have time to do it the old way. And I like it better. Sorry for the bout of randomness I had there. Ha!

    Another one that I actually finished the day morning after the day I was supposed to do it. Got too caught up playing Lego LOTR last night! I suppose it doesn't really matter so long as it get's finished, eh? Keep a lookout for Skiploom later today too. Also, I will be doing two Pokémon on both Saturday and Sunday due to being busy on Monday and Tuesday (going to see Muse... twice). Whee!

    I really like the maggot-infested looking stomach that Raichu is sporting there. The back bottom teeth on the right actually caught my attention for being wonky, and I think they fit a bit more than straight jaggedscary teeth in this case, especially considering how zombielike this little rat is :P

    Must say, I love all of these, but I think I like the speedsketches more. They sacrifice some of the polish, but they have a funkier style that matches the tone better.

    @IJuggler - I am glad that you like the speedpaint style! But I do think I'm going to stick with the other one through the rest of the project... I don't want to jump around too much or things won't look as uniform. I definitely will be trying to incorporate some of the techniques of the other style though! Thanks for your feedback!

    January 26, 2013

    Diglett's simple design leaves a lot of room for interpretation... that is, what the **** is going on underground. I had a bunch of ideas ranging from drills to a mass of tentacles, but eventually just settled on a big angry mouth. Dugtrio should be even more fun... whenever that comes up.

    @General Nonsense - Diglett has been my favorite of the more simplistic designs so far.

    #28 - Garchomp
    January 28, 2013

    Aaaand, we're back. Muse was pretty exhausting and it didn't help that the first Pokémon I got to do for the catchup process was Garchomp. You might notice this looks a little different from the previous ones... this was done on my iPad and I think I'll stick with it for a while. It allows me to retain a large size (due to the retina display) and the program I'm using just seems to be better for speedpainting overall since it has better blending than Photoshop.

    Garchomp looks awesome, my favorite so far. Horsea looks good too. Rather intimidating with teeth.

    I think I can see a difference between these two and the old ones. Not quite sure the new larger look really suits, though, since at least with Garchomp's/Horsea's bodies it feels like there's empty space, compared to the more featured spikes/scales. Still wonderful, mind, but they feel a little bit too big, or something.

    Maybe it's me, but something about Horsea reminds me of Misty, haha.

    @General Awesome - Thanks so much!

    @IJuggler - Hmm... when you say larger look, do you mean the size of the canvas? When I post to Serebii, I always scale them down to 600px wide. Or do you mean the size of the Pokémon...? And yeah, Misty and this Horsea would get along well.

    I really like Gorebyss, kinda like a "Dr. Seuss from hell" look. I honestly don't like Duosion. It just kinda looks gross.
