Luxray by Leashe Luxray by Leashe
THUNDERCAT HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

For :iconbuchi96: who won the "WHO'S THAT POKÉMON" contest that was held (exclusively) on facebook. [link] asked for a Luxray- I think I had one on my team my first run through of diamond., It was named Goku or something. As with most pokémon I design, I don't really like them to look exactly like the animal they are based on, so I tried to stay more true to the sprite with this one. His face is short and tapers to a delicate nose.

I'd also like to bring up my first experience with Corel Painter- which is to say in short- was a NIGHTMARE. I tried coloring this thing 4 different times before I took the base and switched over to photoshop.


AHURHURHURHUR. But don't fret, I'm not giving up. As I have told many of you, the key to anything is practice, and that's what kept me going. You have all been an inspiration to me in more ways than one. So I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone for their support and kindness.

First of all, Luxray's ears are not that big. They are also not even in that angel. The hair of it is bigger and spikier and the nose is just not right. I'm ashamed that you are proud of your gallery.

I personally enjoy the original sketch a bit more. A realistic Luxray looks like a lion to me. It was sort of taken away in the final sketch (particularly the muzzle part.) However this picture is still good. The realism is still there and the proportions are still correct, even though they are less lion like.

Wow, another menacing 'mon! I love the fur, the teeth, the wrinkly snarl, and the crackling electricity in its mouth! Those Mystique eyes are real nice as well, and the unusual nose is cool. It really defines it as a pokemon as opposed to some animal coloured in a kind of pokemon fashion.

May I ask how old you are?
I just like to know, because, well, I'm 15, and I suck at drawing, so I know I have a long way to go... kinda like a comparison thin--WHY ARE YOU SO GOOD?! ;-;
That's ok, you give me inspiration to better myself and my drawing skills :) so I thank you<3

It kind of looks like some predatory cow... thundercow. Haha. But it works really well. Mostly I love the way you drew the ear and eye, and the colors/textures! Which I guess is all of it. But this is really original and definitely the best Luxray I've seen.

I played mostly with the oil/artist's oil and acrylic. I have heard that the watercolor brushes are promising.

im scared to work with it now!haha! i have flat color down like what ive been posting lately, if u care to look, but i tried shading for the first time... its really intimadating... got any tips?

:iconleashe:
Leashe Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
oh, well. I am most certainly not the one to ask for tips, but if I find anything out, I'll try to share. hahaha, but laying down a flat line of color as a base is a really good idea. Then you would lay down your highlights and shadows and go from there.

lol, well i tried very hard to do some shading... and i failed, so hard. so i ended up going back to ps and using gradient overlays EVERYWHERE! haha! i think it works ok, i should have smoothed out everything though, you can see linec all through the hair and shirt :/ but other than that, what do you think? [link] and please be honest, i wanna know if it looks bad or not.

I love how you've painted the fur in the ear, it looks so soft!
Great idea for not basing it completely off a lion. It makes it unique and fascinating to look at <3
And I really like the crackling electric effect it gives you an awesome sense of energy

Thanks!

I realized halfway through the pose wasn't as dynamic as it could have been, so I tried to create some movement in the bg, I'm really happy you picked up on it.

Also, I agree, I don't really like it when people draw the pokémon like the base animal.
