I never paid much attention to Shaymin, because it was only a little silly looking hedgehog. But lately I’ve realized, wow! It’s super cute. Imagine this critter as one of those rock pets that grow grass? I think it’d work out perfectly, and in fact, that’s probably what it’s based on. I should do more quick paintings of Pokemon, it’s mighty fun!
As a bonus:
Here’s the same painting before I slapped colour overlays and a texture over it. Looking back, I sort of like the plain one a little more but I really wanted to make it a little warmer. (The swatches used were from Sugimori’s original artwork and he tends to use lots of dull greys and I…. It’s okey but not for a cute little Pokemon!)
Also like last time, here’s a graph oh my mouse movements while drawing it; the timer is 45 minutes. (That’s a little long for something so small but… ahha!)
