225 Torchic by TrinityWolfDragon 225 Torchic by TrinityWolfDragon
Torchiiic!
My favourite 3rd gen starter and the first one I took in my Sapphire version. I remember when he first evolved into freaking MMA anthro chicken and he was a bamf of the highest level of bamf, I thought it was one of the coolest evolution lines ever!

I referenced the foot touching the ground from the Ken Sugimori artwork :3

Hi there! I use the spread texture on Sai to do the linework
but the texture you see on the pokemon drawings for example are made from film grain on photoshop ^^

I've not had many people ask me for tips before so I'm not sure what to say. Would you like me to give you some tips on how I drew Torchic? ^w^

I'm not good at explaining so I apoligise in advance for terrible explanation X'3 REVEALING MY SECRETS

I use Paint Tool Sai to draw now :3 The good thing about Paint Tool Sai is the ability to change the speed of your brush stroke and I usually use one called S-7 which is the slowest. This helped draw Torchics head so it looks round and smooth.
I'm using the Pen Tool - size 9. It's also set at "Spread" So that the linework is actually not super smooth.

I'm using about 3-4 pictures of torchic to look at while I draw ^w^ I don't trace, I just reference. Sometimes I reference parts of them so that I could make a good pose :3

I use Ken Sugimori's official artworks colours. Recently I don't blend the colours, I just cell shade but make it softer.

Next I move to Photoshop. I put a soft focus on it and sometimes that brightens the colours, depending on how much I use. Then I use a filter that puts 'Grain' on it. Then I duplicate the layer, and use the 'Graphic Pen' filter. This created a bunch of strokes based on your foreground and background. Then I make this layer a "Soft Light" layer effect which blends it into the layer below it and I set the opacity to about 30%
This creates the effect that I've done on all my Pokemon drawings.

And Finally, I merge the layers, duplicate it again, use the 'Minimum' filter set the size to 5. This created the white outline around the Pokemon. Lastly I put a drop shadow effect on the layer.

And thats how I've been doing these! ^^

You're welcome! ^^ Just leep drawing, practice is always good.
If you want something to laugh at you can look at my very first deviations I put up back in 2009, they're really terrible X'3
