Yesterday was a very nostalgic day overall. My brother and I spent a lot of the day looking through old drawings and other old ideas we had from when we were younger. We ended up finally finding some of the "episode lists" of the fictional "TV channel" that we created when we were kids, which will be pretty beneficial to our current project: Speedvore.


These are some thumbnail sketches that I did of the Murderous Nays and Stigly. These were done for the piece below, as well as one or two that I plan on working on in the near future.

"Rise of the Murderous Nays"
This is Forlorn, the Nay who went on a "murderous rampage" after the death of Mocha. She is the First Generation Nay in equivalence to Zandra.

"019: Rattata"
Pokemon of the Day!

Commission Time!

So I decided that it's time to start up my commissions. I've posted all of the details on deviantART, in case anyone's interested.


Some thumbnail sketches I did of Wayward Vagabond for the piece below. I plan to do a few more based from these thumbnails in the future, too.

This was a quick piece I did which was originally just going to be a color study. It turned into a bit more than that and actually came out to be a finished piece. I got inspiration with the colors from the actual Homestuck comic, with the way they express color.

018: Pidgeot
This is one of my favorite ones I've done so far. I really had a lot of fun with those wings.

Easing Back In

Yesterday was my first full day back at home, so I didn't do all that much art-related. I'm slowly easing back into my schedule and trying to get back my work ethic.


017: Pidgeotto
Coming right along, back into my Pokemon of the Day sketches.

These are some color scripts I did for an application process. The video I color scripted is from The Incredibles and can be found here.

Back from Canada!

I'm back from my family trip to Canada! It was a really fun weekend and we ended up doing a bunch of cool stuff. Other than relaxing and just hanging out with my family, I also got in a bunch of sketches! Most of these were done in the hotel room or in the car rides.

My Sketch Journal pages that I did daily over the few days.

I decided to re-design Jennie Hamilton, one of my characters, since I WAS in Hamilton in Canada.

These are a bunch of environment studies that I did, most of which were done in the car ride. I did a few in the hotel as well. Unfortunately I only brought a few colored pencils with me, so I was pretty limited on colors I could use.

 I did some gestures while in the car of people in the city. A few of these are also of my family from either in the car or the hotel room. The last ones in pen include some environment studies I did in the car too.

Some little doodles that didn't come out the best. A marker doodle of the fireplace in our hotel and then some fanart and random doodles I did after coming back from Anime North.

Leaving the Country

...For the weekend at least! I know I mentioned in my previous post that I will be in Toronto this weekend on a family vacation. So in turn, that means I will be absent from the internet and will not update my blog until Tuesday. Of course I will be still doing my daily sketch journal, I just won't be able to upload the sketches until I get back. Also I wanted to keep up on my daily Pokemon, so I drew a bit ahead. But anyway, enjoy my last blog post of the week!


"014: Kakuna"
Pokemon of the Day!

"015: Beedrill"
Getting ahead in these sketches.

"016: Pidgey"
More Pokemon!

Getting Ahead

This might be my last blog post of the week, unless I have time tomorrow morning to make one before I leave. I'm heading up to Toronto for a family vacation this weekend, so when I get back I'll have a bigger blog post.


"012: Butterfree"
Pokemon of the Day!

"013: Weedle"
I'm getting a little ahead just so that I will have enough for this weekend.

"Mystic Gohan Doodle"
It was my friend Joaquin's birthday a few days ago, so I drew him this.

Digital Doodles

So I've really been enjoying drawing these quick digital doodles. In addition to my daily Pokemon, I might start drawing some more of these.


"011" Metapod"
Pokemon of the day!

"Guldo Doodle"
A quick little doodle that I did of Guldo from DBZ.

Busy Day Leading to... More Pokemon!

Yesterday involved discussions of plans for the game my brother and I are working on, some practice sketching, more cleaning, and some more playing Pokemon with friends. So it was a fairly busy day overall.


"010: Caterpie"
Pokemon of the day!

100th Post!

This is officially my 100th post on Blogger! I don't particularly have anything super special to post, so it's basically going to just be a normal daily post for me.

So yesterday I listened to some of the Paper Wings Podcast and learned a lot of stuff. I definitely want to catch up on all of these, since they really inspire me a lot. The rest of the night was playing Pokemon with friends, and then my brother came home from Chicago.


"The Fancy Gang Sketches"
Here's Johnny, Vhan, and Arianna. I didn't know what else to call that little group of friends.

"Electric Pokemon Sketches"
I started by drawing Raichu, then I decided to just draw a bunch of electric Pokemon. It's hard drawing ones that I'm not as familiar with.

"009: Blastoise"
Continuing on with my daily Pokemon sketches!

The Cleaning Begins

So this summer my family's planning on cleaning up our house a whole lot and I started that up last night. But it was the typical kind of day otherwise: Picnicing and playing Pokemon with my friends.


"Left Hand Gestures"
So the first row are ones I tried using my left hand for. It didn't work out so smoothly so I just continued onward normally with my right hand after that. I drew these while waiting in the car while my parents were in a grocery store.

So Much Pizza

So yesterday I had a lot of pizza for dinner... possibly a bit too much. But anyway, the rest of the day was practicing drawing from some books and playing Pokemon with friends.


"008: Wartortle"
So I decided to start back up my whole project of drawing a Pokemon a day! I'm not gonna dedicate myself TOO much to this project, but I'll try to draw a Pokemon when I can, in order, in this kind of a style.

A Day in the Park

So I finally got to go outside and sketch after our family picnic. We usually go on picnics whenever it's nice outside, so yesterday was definitely a great day for it. Afterwards, my mom and my brother played Frisbee. The day was overall pretty productive and one of my better days in terms of art.


"Random Requests"
I didn't have anything in mind to draw, so I asked my brother to request two things and this is what came from it. Pupitar as a Junes worker and Hiei as an archaeologist, digging for treasure.

"Park Sketches"
Some sketches I did at the park.

Pokemon Sketching

So the day may have started unproductive, but I ended up staying up a little later so that I could make it into a productive day and actually do some digital work.


"Pokemon Soul Silver Team"
Since a bunch of my friends had drawn out their Pokemon teams the past week or so, I decided to do the same, but with one of my favorite teams: my Soul Silver team! 
And below are all of the individual ones:
