Whatever this Lunala/Necrozma forme is supposed to be. It has wonky anatomy..
It's fun to do night/space backgrounds, albeit challenging.

Giratina Alt. Forme. Used a different sketching method for this drawing, it took more time, but was more effective.

This month, I will be away from my laptop for about two weeks (I'm traveling to Tennessee for the upcoming Solar Eclipse, and will also be visiting family), and will likely not have any new art for next month, just a heads up.

Okay, so I lied, kinda changed my mind about not bringing it. But hey, at least that means I have new stuff to post. For the first two drawings, I used the same sketching style that I used for the Giratina Alt. forme drawing. I'm feeling like it yields better results, but is quite a bit more time consuming.

So, Hurricane Irma happened, and thus I had to disappear for a while. But I'm back, with a single doodle.

_____________________

:blink: Update regarding this topic, and my activity:
Spoiler:
It's been a while since I last updated, but I'm considering changing up how I manage this topic, what with the site eventually moving forward. I would ideally like to start including more chao art, since that is the main focus of the site, however, I have been feeling conflicted about this, as suddenly only posting sonic/chao art after years of variety within this topic would likely be jarring to say the least. But at the same time, I also didn't like the idea of closing this topic and starting fresh with a new one either; running this topic for almost 8 years, I couldn't just up and abandon it. So I've decided that while yes, I will mostly try to keep this topic more focused on chao, I will still keep up with some of the other things I draw as well, though I think what I'll end up doing is posting non chao-related art during "slow periods", where I'm not currently too active when it comes to drawing (like right now), or if I just haven't drawn a whole lot of chao art recently. I may decide to changing my updating schedule from monthly, to every other month, depending on how active I am, though as of yet, I haven't completely decided on that. And of course, any art I do for this site specifically will not be posted here, as it will likely be used elsewhere. To those who still check back at this topic, I apologise for not be as active as I used to be, but please understand that I am currently going through a lot of stuff in real life, and I obviously also have other hobbies besides drawing, but I do thank you for taking time to look at my stuff (even if it's my older works). Till the next update, thanks for reading.

Mini-Update is kinda in the middle of the month, but I don't care.

Chao group photo. This is my first drawing done in Clip Studio Paint (ignore the duel watermark).

Hopefully with the acquisition of a new art program, I'll get the motivation to at least do some experimental doodles (whether they're chao-related remains to be seen). Believe me, I'd really like for this topic to be art-active again, but then again, the art board in general is pretty dead, so maybe it's fitting. Also, once again, I have to update a bunch of links in previous posts, as many have become broken again.

...what even is an update schedule anymore? I really need to try and be more consistent with when I update things. :no:

Anyways, art:

Valentine's Day drawing for 2019, might not be Sonic or Chao-related, but it includes Zipo, so I'm counting it.

Non-Sonic/Chao art:

Snivy speed bump doodle. Idea taken from an old doodle dump.

Image
Gen 8 starters. Don't ask me who I'm gonna pick, because I honestly don't know at this point.

Image
Happy Zepopo. I guess she's just glad to be her regular colours again. Also, this totally wasn't something that I sketched over a year ago and forgot about.
Can I also just complain about how copy/pasting image links from DeviantART is now? :chaoangry:

Man I see Sertimus everywhere lol. Small world, gameaddict is a friend of mine too. Haven't talked to him (or anyone really for that matter hahah) in a while though! Love the Sonic Adventure style Chao, looks super legit. Love your cel-shaded style too! Salazzle is amazing! You don't happen to be taking commissions or requests for icons in the style of that Salazzle, do you? :o I will totally pay you for one of those hahah

AWWW YISSS. SNIVY. SO CUTE!!! Snivy is my freaking spirit animal hahah

Heh, that's pretty cool that you recognise Sertimus. Yeah, gameaddict30 has been a good friend of mine since I was a wee teen.

Thanks for the compliments on my art! Cel-shading is my favourite style to do, it's a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, I'm not currently doing commissions, though I am planning on eventually setting something up so I can. I'll be sure to provide an update with information once I get stuff figured out.

Well I'll keep an eye out for that! I actually just checked out your DA page and saw a Snivy pic that's super cute! Mind if I use a cropped version of that as my avatar here with credit? Such a presh bab

My zombie-self returns with a single piece:
Image
Third Latios and Latias drawing I've done...that I can remember.

With the Creative room on the Discord server, there technically isn't too much of a reason for this topic be updated further, but I will continue to do so anyways just because I feel this topic does a better job at archiving my works for people who may have missed them. That being said, updates will still be very slow, as I still haven't gotten out of my drawing rut completely. I also haven't been drawing chao quite as much lately, as my main interests (more like obsessions) have changed in more recent years. Currently, I've been practicing drawing humans more, if only to be able to do half-decent art of my OTP. Non Sonic/Chao art I will still keep in spoilers in case people don't care for it on a Chao forum, but I'll probably only do updates whenever I have at least one new Sonic/Chao pic to share.

I'm too stubborn to let this topic rest in peace...
Or maybe I just want to see if I can get it to last for 10 years.

I definitely support you continuing this topic. The problem with the creative channel, its only one channel and artwork often gets bumped up almost as soon as its posted despite the discussion limitations.
At least here your art will be noticed a little more by people who are still using the forums without being bumped as fast.

So post on both, c:

aw keep it running zipo; you're as good as ever c:

and it keeps something on the forums for people to look at and get inspired by to try their own art. easier to see you portfolio here anyway. plus i maybe don't post here, but i always prefer seeing your stuff all in one spot. i just never know what to say except i love it
