Ventus Triathlon- Swimming by etesian Ventus Triathlon- Swimming by etesian
Ouch... He is going to have a lovely water burn in the morning I imagine. If he hasn't drowned yet anyway. XD

So yeah... This is for the Ohana Charity Triathlon mini-contest. Team Ventus style. This is the swimming portion. I'm not all that happy with it, but I'm not really unhappy with it either so... here we are. Critiques are, as usual, welcome.

I had been thinking of how to use some of Jon's team that hasn't been seen yet, but I wasn't sure exactly how others on his team could be useful in this type of challenge. So... it's Roc again, fluttering about in my usual sketchy style.

For this, the participating ventus members are adorned with one of the three legendary bird pokemon. As can be seen on Jon's Articuno swim trunks.

Enjoy. Or don't. Or do.

hahahahaha! :'D

You know, I really love the sketchy outline combined with the bold colouring and shading. It works really well! :0

:lmao: Poor guy, having to come out of the water in his birthday suit...lets hope he finds some seaweed or something to cover up with first. And lets hope an octillery or something doesnt decide to wear the trunks as a hat, like you said further down the page, which will be even more embarrassing. I bet that pidgeot will be getting one heck of a scolding afterward xD

Looks awesome, good luck in the contest!

Yeah... it might take him a while to live this one down XD but I'm sure he'll find something to keep it PG. Yeah... those are nice trunks... but of course then it would be a very fashionable octillery XD Oh I dunno... scolding the creatures that are keeping you from plummeting to a near instantaneous death (when you are riding them) may not be the wisest of moves. More likely he'll be scolding his teammates for "making" him do the swimming thing in the first place.

Thank you very much :hug:

Wow! You finished this fast @A@
Looks great, I love the sketchiness. Also, dem swim trunks XD
I really love the wings on Roc, they're much more like actual bird wings then the style Pokemon draws them in, which is good, because sometimes official Bird Pokemon art makes me question how they fly with such oddly shaped and sometimes short-feathered wings (ex: Pidgeot's HGSS sprite, really narrow wings at the base).

^^; yeah, I basically worked on it on and off procrastinating other more important things for hours. Which is why it was done this quickly. Now I really need to work on my animation or it will never get done on time.

I'm glad 8D the wings are still a bit shorter than I guess would be "real" but yeah... Bird pokemon have amazing levitation abilities to fly whilst defying the laws of gravity and physics.

Thanks :hug: you are too nice.

Lol, I love how playful and fun this is! :3 Not to mention that dash of humor in there; I love art with a dash of humor. x3

Welp, art wise, I gotta say that I really love your style, Ete; I'm a sucker for the sketchy look, and how simplistic yet... Hmm, there isn't really a good enough word that I can think of right now. I'd say simplistic, yet you can see how well you are at anatomy, and how awesomely you capture little characteristic details (such as the character's expressions) and liveliness that is often missed, or attempted to be forced with a lot of unnecessary details. I'd say, this deserves a 100/10. ^^

Fantastic work as always, meh lurve! Keep up the grand arts. C:

d'aww. Thanks earthy. :hug: from you that means a lot.

I'm glad you like it. I'm always worried that my style looks half arsed or sloppy, so it makes me really happy to hear you say you like it.

100/10=10 8D yay
Thank you so much earthly-one :icongwomp: you really made my day.

What will be more distressing, coming out of the water having lost your awesome trunks, or... coming out of the water without your awesome trunks for all to see? :ohnoes:

That's a good question. XD A mixture of both maybe? I think they bounce off of each other quite well.

It may be more distressing when he sees some shark or gull wearing his awesome trunks as a hat.

All n' all I think he will be rather distressed by the end of all this. X3
