LOOK AT THIS MAGNIFICENT PIECE OF HARDWARE I GOT NOT SO LONG TIME AGO. For some time I really wanted to own Atari 2600. The wooden system would be even more grand (and expensive) but this one is awesome too! The joystick sucks and I need find a replacement but for now it’s good enough to play the games. It came with 5 games and I enjoy them. Damn, those pixel squares and rainbow blasts.

Another bearded dragon, I tried do it as fast as I can but I kinda failed. A study of this photo: x by dingelientje-stock.deviantart.com I got lazy with limbs keke.

Done in GIMP, dunno about the time because I had many breaks (too long for sure!).

Aaaaaand it sukcs, lol.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice app: it can use up to 5 manageable layers, has many useful tools, supports hard pixels or antialiasing (whatever you like), etc but it has some things that gets in a way.
You can’t make frame page big. You just can’t.
You can’t go into Clean Mode without any frames.
Frames are definitive areas (they works like separated canvases) and you cannot put anything that will cross through them (eg. tail of a bubble).
There is no flip button. I abuse flipping/mirroring and I would prefer it over the undo button.
The file size is too small! I worked with pixels at times, instead working with drawings.
Tools aren’t perfect: text is either too big or too small with no inbetween, simply cuting something and moving around causes quality loss, pencil ‘lags’ and makes straight lines instead of curves when moving too fast etc etc
This app is not for paintings. Sure, you can try and do something nice but you will spend a lot of time on it, just like in MS Paint.
The interface is clumsy at times and the color… “wheel” seems to be buggy.
Add to this my ridiculously inaccurate touch screen and you can be sure you will have some irritating time with this software. But despite all those things mentioned I still think it’s worth checking. Note: it does not support 3D effect.
5/10.

This was done like year ago. Done in GIMP. It was sitting in my drafts for so long time that I forgot about it.
PS, this is one of those NSFW drawings my blog’s description warns you about.

Finished colored sketch. I’m working on this now. Dunno when I finish.

Fail sketches: cars. I draw cars because I can’t draw them, ok?

I did this 2 weeks ago while waiting for a bus. It’s obviously unfinished. Done on Nintendo 3DS using Colors! 3D app.

tentalones said: my sister had a venus flytrap but she didnt make sure to give it the right type of water and it ended up dying….

Yes: clean/pure water is important. I already got the distiled water so I hope it will be ok for it. Too bad that your sister’s plant didn’t make it.

Meet Ferdynand, the recent addition to my family! I bought it this Sunday when I was at Silesia ZOO with Crash. I think I have 2-3 plants in the pot with biggest being ‘parent’. I read a lot about them to make sure I can take care of it and I hope it will make through the dormacy stage. Yesterday it caught two Attagenus smirnovi (unfortunately I’m living with the beetles) and it seems it began digesting them succesfuly. I’m not sure if I should clean the traps though, as you can see they got some dirt, plants and possibly remains of previous hapless meals.

This is my today’s work. Zniw Adventure is still a working tittle but the demo is almost done so I had to make a tittle screen. Even if it looks simple I spent quite long time on this to make it look nice. Initial sketch can be seen below.

Finally! It took me *only* half year, but here it is - SHINY DIALGA.

(Some of you may remember the shiny Creation Trio event (link). I got mad because, as usual, my country got nothing. So I began soft reseting my Canadian version of Pokemon Diamond to get shiny Dialga.) Next: shiny Giratina, and if I still have the patience - Arceus event in my French Heart Gold for shiny Palkia.

It took my waaay longer than my previous (and first) atempt at soft reseting for shiny legendary - shiny Kyurem. All I can say is…

Thanks for your input! Someone already has answered the question some time ago, here on Tumblr. And I got few more vigorous messages over the night, which explanation of the word. I suppose the Treecko picture was featured somewhere recently. 
As I’m answering this in public, for those who are wondering: I was confused about the word ‘GIMP’ (the short for GNU Image Manipulation Program, my main art software) being banned in in Colors! Gallery when typying the word from 3DS (as I paint on 3DS). The original post is located here - x
Again, thanks for the concern.

WIPs and steps for an artwork done for http://pokerole-project.tumblr.com/ because I felt I could do something from their list as a challenge and as relax between commissions. I chose ‘an injured pokemon that barely can keep on fighting’, with Nidorino, later Bisharp and Charmeleon, in mind. It ended with Amaura as you can see. 

The original idea was more landscape-ish, but the picture was getting shorter and shorter as I realised the size. Also I didn’t add cast shadow from the ice cloud because artistic licence. Note: in this version I included watermark.

Like 98% were done in GIMP, only the bottom left corner and the ice cloud was painted in SAI, which was then edited and finished in GIMP.
