Critique by Ani-Monster Aug 1, 2009, 9:17:55 AM
This piece lovingly blends rough, sketchy lines and dark overtones with insane detail and beautiful vibrant blasts of color. A lone Ivysaur stomps through the forest, reminiscent of the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. This picture is overgrown with greenery in both the background and the foreground, creating the tone of a dense tropical jungle, while the central figure's bright pink flower bud demands the attention of the viewer. The brightest portion by far is the Ivysaur's eyes, which peer through the darkness, staring just off center as though looking directly past the viewer. As always, joshD1000 has done a wonderful job of blending the imaginary with the real, and for that, this picture earns a spot in our favorites, just as many of this artist's other works have.
What do you think?

Wonderful! I'm glad I found someone who seems to think Ivysaur has a bulldog-like anatomy and a small-ish bulb! Thank you! :3 It's beautiful.

The first thing I noticed about this ivysaur was its eyes. There was a sure spark of human expression in them, maybe a little too much expression for an animal such as this. Don't get me wrong, the rest of the animal's great, and the eyes are actually really well drawn, just a little out of place

Great rest of the picture though. I love the jungle in the background.

Yes they are but there not what you think, they are not vines for vinewhip, they come out of specially designed holes in its shoulders. The ones withi the flower are very sensitive light absorbers which allow it to turn light into energy :) like super conductive solar panels in vine form. So when it gets sunny the flower opens slightly, and charging up its attacks

Awesome =). Shoulder ports for the vines make a bit more sense placement wise, I'm glad thats where you placed them. I always assumed the vines sprouted from the base of the plants trunk myself in some kind of bizzare malboro fashion (FF reference).

In other news I'm about halfway done with that Pokemon Type essay. I should have it done pretty soon.

lol takes me bout 2 hours? My suggestion, use brushes, you dont need to pain stakingly draw all the foliage etc just make brushes and stick them in your work, its a cheat but at the end of the day, if it looks how you want and it looks good, then who cares? :)
