Pokemon Theme: Moltres…

So I’m so close to finishing this challenge! It’s unfortunately taken a ridiculous amount of time however (I mean we’re talking two years…), so it almost means nothing now in terms of a ‘challenge’ but I’ve enjoyed doing it.



Pokemon Theme: Magmar…

So unfortunately all I can ever see when I look at magmar is a duck on fire, but I did wonder if that’s how it somehow got it’s name – magma+mallard? Who knows, it’s a silly looking pokemon anyway.

Pokemon Theme: Ponyta and Rapidash…

So, without sounding like a bawheed, I am so happy with Ponyta – I think she turned out so cute!
Rapidash looks weird though, I’m happy with the fire mane, but her head/ears/horn just look odd and I couldn’t figure out how to make it better ( as you can probably see by the mangle of colours in that area from painting it again and again).

I feel like I’ve been on a roll lately with my painting, I was really happy with my Golem and now my Ponyta. I usually always have some critique about them, I’ve been told that I’m too critical on myself and it is nail polish after all, but still! Anyone else a bit too hard on themselves? I worry that I end up coming across as a negative Nelly or as having false modesty or something.

Pokemon Theme: Growlithe and Arcanine…

So I was kind of struggling on what to do for these guys, I had a lot of sketches but nothing was really going to transfer well onto a nail, their fur was going to be a nightmare and they do look pretty similar… It then clicked to me to keep it kinda sketchy looking rather than being so precise so it looks like heat haze, seeing as they’re fire type, and their fur can look wild and unkempt. Does it work, or does it really just look untidy and poorly executed?

(Do you know what I’m starting to get excited about, it’s still a long way off, but putting all the photos together and seeing how they look as a whole collection!)

Pokemon Theme: Vulpix and Ninetales…

So here’s Vulpix and Ninetales. I always felt they were the type that you’d have as lovely family pets or something. I’m happy with both of these, but that Ninetales was tricky!

Pokemon Theme: Charmander Set…

So I did not fancy trying to paint their faces or anything! Therefore thought it would be quite cool to paint a growing flame for ‘Charmander’, ‘Charmeleon’ and ‘Charizard’ seeing as that’s one of the main differences between the different characters.  I hope it doesn’t count as cheating!
