Warrior by ShadeofShinon Warrior by ShadeofShinon
All of my pain, tears an hate! This picture took me a lifetime to finish. I thought that I'd finally try to brush up (ehehe) my Photoshop painting skills and do something without any speedpainting elements.
Personally I think I did pretty well. I still wonder how the heck did I have the patience to keep doing this picture for so long. I often found myself cursing this and my slow working pace.
I'm still not quite satisfied with some stuff but if I don't stop working on this now, I'll continue working on it 'till the very end. And I mean it. This is one of those pictures.

Anyway, this is Samurott ofr "Draw Every Pokemon" project on Nuzlocke forums. Someone dropped him so I decided to draw the picture because I think Samurott is really awesome. I really like him.

I hope you like it!

Wow, this is excellent! Wicked shading, brilliant detail (I especially like the fur and ridges of the mouth), outstanding effects, and great foreshortening of samurott's "sword"! I am very impressed with this literally splashing 'shop! Worth all that time for sure!

Woaaaa!!! This is by far THE BEST Pokémon picture I've ever seen!!! Amazing, I wish he were real, and in this picture he really seems to be about to go out the screen XD Really great! (Sorry, I may have made some writing and grammar mistakes, my english is not so good now ^-^")
