BFOI R3 P2- OIT-061 by etesian BFOI R3 P2- OIT-061 by etesian

Part 2: Here
Part 3: [link]

And crash. I say this, I realize, in a lot of my artist comments... but this BFOI contest has a lot of firsts for me and I have been challenged to really go outside my comfort zone... this picture was very much out of my comfort zone. and I still weenie'd out and made the trainers tiny. I have never done action stills before, I have never made such detailed lineart, and I have never put this much attention into the coloring before. Seriously, I think this contest may be doing a lot more for me than just giving me something to do... I'm happy with how this came out.

Okay, so here we have Jon's swellow, Martlet, facing off against Nugget, Dan's steelix. The point here is... Martlet doesn't stand much of a chance. There is a type disadvantage, and a huge size difference. (I hoped to emphasize this with the angle but I'm not sure how it came out).

I realize not much is actually happening in this shot as far as "action" goes, but this is sort of the tense stare down before the battle begins.

Hope you like it :dummy:
As always, any comments or critiques are welcome.

Steelix!!! I really like that pokemon! although it was hard to defeat at the game.
However, the mood of this drawing is really good. I like it ><

how long has that trainer had the steelix? He must trust it a lot to be standing on it's head like that...

If Seto Kaiba can stand on the heads of his holographic dragons that explode when destroyed, I think this guy can trust his steelix. but honestly I don't know since he's not my character. :3

... I don't think so... but it may have learned in the time that I drew this to the current day.

I really love this. I like how big and scary the steelix looks.
Steelix vs that tiny swellow? It makes me wonder how this battle is going to turn out! I feel a bit bad for the swellow!

:dummy: I'm glad you like it. Oh don't feel too bad for him. That Swellow may be looking at unavoidable defeat, but his ego is vast and untouchably large and that large head shall leave this battle unscathed. XD

I really like your choice of perspective there. It makes Dan's Steelix looks so enormous and frightening! :clap:

WOOOT!! I knew it'd look amazing when completely colored! I really like the atmosphere in this image. It seems very tense with battle anticipation, yet almost calm because of the trainers' confidence in there Pokemon. c: I'd say this image is a complete success! 100 out of 10!

Basically, I love it. xD Keep up the fantastic work. Ete! C:

Intense stare downs are awesome anyways. I love the way you colored it. C:
The sky looks cool! I don't know why, but it gives off an "IMMA EAT YOUUU" feeling. Yes, I'm talking about the sky. IDK. DON'T QUESTION ME. D:

Intense stare downs are intense. OwO
Thank you very much. :)

The sky? Actually you have no idea how much I tried to get the sky to look right XD , the colors and the tones were all wrong and it either looked too blue or too black or... urgh. But I'm glad you like it ^^

I SHALL QUESTION NOTHING!
