This is what I did today. It looked clean with the pencil. These past couple weeks (?), I just did proportions and random doodles just to get comfortable for the New Years. I also wanted to work on hair shading again. The “woman” below was last week. It still looks like I can’t fully grasp it yet.
As for what’s next: For 2017, my plan is to draw all of the Gym Leaders of Pokemon, main series only, starting from Red to Blue and up to Sun/Moon’s Kanuha. My initial idea is one gym leader per month. It should give me time. If I go this route, to do all of the leaders, it’ll take over a year 😉 By 2018, I’ll barely be in Gold and Silver. We’ll see after the first couple of months or three. I don’t expect the pictures to be the same quality. I may only do just pen and pencil.
Whether its pen, pencil or color, each gym leader would have a neat pose/impression standing near a signature pokemon that they use.
This is just me doodling. Trying to figure out a style for Brock (AKA: Takeshi), the first gym leader, and to bring out his look. For Onix (AKA: Iwark), the shading will be important. I will try to practice up to the New Years, despite the holidays. Rock shading should be fun.
Here’s my current ideas for the first four leaders:
- Brock – Onix
- Misty – Psyduck or Staryu or Starmie
- Surge – Raichu (he should be fun!)
- Erika – Tangela
