Reshiram's Heat Wave by ECrystalica Reshiram's Heat Wave by ECrystalica
I seriously do NOT enjoy drawing Pokemon card artwork. The outcome is at least good, but just trying to get every single detail done made me quite distraught. I admit that Gen. 5 is not really my favorite, actually I would say it is my LEAST favorite. But the more I paid attention to Reshiram, the more I started to appreciate it. I'm not gonna lie, it's got a very clever design to it and I would consider it as one of the better looking legendaries. I just really liked the pose and I guess I just got an urge to draw this. Overall, the drawing took about 3 months (I know that sounds crazy but it's true!). 

Reshiram (c) Pokemon Nintendo Game Freak
Art by me

Ahhh, this one I made before I had a Wacom Tablet so I had to do things in a very complicated way. First I drew the outline on paper, then scanned the drawing onto my computer, and then colored it with a mouse on Photoshop. If you notice, the outline looks really choppy because it's pencil outline, not a digital one. Had I had the tablet back then, it would have looked much better in my opinion. I'm still surprised that so many people liked it anyhow, to be honest ^^;

Oh okay. I don't know if DeviantART's program has as many features as Gimp, Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop, or Manga Studio. I would recommend that you use one of those softwares instead. There you can do a lot more with different brushes, effects, and layers.

Well I checked out DeviantART Muro and it does seem to have some basic tools that Photoshop has. It's not as fancy as Photoshop but I guess for now you can stick with Muro. Since you don't use the Wacom Tablet, I would suggest what I did. Draw a sketch on paper, then take a photo or scan and then make the outlining and coloring on Muro. You can watch the video I sent to you to see how it's done. 

Wishing all the best! Pikachu happy

Do you have a camera or phone with a camera on it? It doesn't matter how good the quality is, you will draw the outline over it anyway and hide the original layer (photo).
