So here's Pikachu getting hit with a Pokeball ! ! ! Took about 1.5 Hrs. W/ pen, paper, Artrage, and MS paint.

TheDagger- I love the idea of shooting Pikachu! You are really good w/ Artrage, I'm impressed. Keep up the good work.

Mr. Mu- This is a very interesting peice you've got here. I like the way the tree behind the guy looks.

zem- Good idea! Pretty impressive for only 5 minutes.

Got to love picachu... I'll post my sketch and comments on Sunday since I cant this weekend. Alas I wont break my resolution yet..!!

before the pokeball...

Photoshop, b/w, approaching 1 hr (tried my hand at AndrewLey's method of blocking in forms with black first)

zem -- simple, but still a priceless expression on the baby's face (the one being chased)
Mr. Mu -- cool, nice atmosphere, really sets a story, like the first panel of a comic or something
TheDagger -- interesting... well if Harvest Moon for the DS can be a fantasy RPG, anything could happen, eh? nice painting, good light.
Wiggin -- nice likeness. for some reason it's just amusing to have it smack him on the back of the head, with the anime "emoticon"-thingy as well
