BatteryMunkey Commission by unbadger BatteryMunkey Commission by unbadger
I seriously. Don't know what to say about this. I don't even have a title for it. This is definitely one of the few pieces I put a huge amount of work into compositionally. But something still seems off... I dunno. I'm tired. And I've been staring at this way too long lol.

The two OCs are :iconbatterymunkey:'s characters. The scene suggestion sorta started as just messing around in the Livestream chat room that turned into... whatever the hell this is. I guess a slice of life scene for college/post-college life in the Pokemon world? Yeah, let's go with that.

Now to answer some questions. Yes, Zurusukin is smoking a joint, yes that's a beer bottle, yes the dude's playing Sonic [Classic Collection], and yes, they probably got that couch off the side of the road lol. Oh, and the posters are the commissioner's dog and Megan Fox. derp

And why the silver Gamecube controllers? From personal experience, my original purple controller crapped out on me a few years ago forcing me to replace it with a silver one. That's it really.

Tentatively opening this to critiques. The perspective's all sorts of fucked up, I know. Realistically, that room is waaaaay too small. My bad. Fucking perspective how does it work? Idk. Help me.

Also should this be flagged as mature? I personally don't think so but others might have different ideas. There are far worse things on this site than a Pokemon smoking weed, really.

I have one more commission left but after that... no more. I want a break lol. COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED thank you~

PS- is the new way DA has the descriptions REALLY ugly for everyone else? Jesus.

I like the whole casualness in this work, the trainers and their pokemon all casually just chilling and spending time. It's like a snapshot of a Pokemon anime spinoff or something! Love it!
Zikschive Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Except Pokemon is a kids game and nobody smokes and drinks beer... e-o
AgentA122 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Fine! A mature spinoff a pokemon anime then!

oogaboogaz Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
I always thought the "Hoodlum pokemon" Scrafty would be the type of pokemon to have his pants on the ground and smoke some weed.

Nice job!

I'd say that for the Pokemon, it's life after you beat the champion.

I think it might be best to flag it as mature. We don't want kids seeing a Pokemon lighting up. Conveys the wrong message.

I found this through my 3DS on another website a few months ago and I saved it to my SD card.

It's been my desktop background since. It's that amusing. xD

This is the best Pokemon picture on DA.
lydario Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
To me what seems off would probably be textures. On the human characters you see small spaces with texture, then on the pokemon large spaces filled with more or less solid color. I think they just seem to stand out.

I was going to start off by saying, however, that this was actually a fairly compelling piece. I love the way you've grounded the pokemon/people into their environment, and... there just some sort of lunacy to this that seems uncommon. Everyone usually has their pokemon and trainers out in the woods doing something adventurous, but in a domestic setting... they seem more alive somehow.

Scrafty is by far the most successful, then maybe haunter, and lasty Simisear seems to stick out the most. The way the perspective seems to build upward momentum as indicated through scrafty and the girl, I'd expect the angle of the other characters to be more of an "on the ground looking up" perspective, but Simisear (and the arm of the couch) sort of hamper the continuation of that upward movement.

It's really the couch portion in general. Th dude on it really could stay put, but tilting the back portion of the couch down and then adjusting the arms could even fix it. The top 'line' of the couch I'd keep as it, it just looks like the couch's back legs have magazines stacked under them to tilt the couch forward a bit, and I think since the couch takes up such a huge portion of the composition it's really the only thing contributing the the wonky perspective.

(That grew into something a lot longer than I'd ever have planned.)
unbadger Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Student General Artist
Oh dang, thank you so much for the lengthy response and for all your critique! Especially with the proportions of the couch lol. I really appreciate it, thanks again. c:
lydario Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
You're welcome, and I realize it's like a year late, but with the exception of critiques on work that is in upwards of 3-4 years old... I figure critique doesn't lose its relevance.
Marks-Arts Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Because of this pic, I've gotten very used to and a bit fond of Scrafty, I don't why but besides the fact that he smokes a joint (-_-) he looks like a Pokemon you'd like to be around with and possibly a great gamer!
Count-Vilanova Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Very nicely done
pokediginut Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2011  Student Writer
