Australian Pokemon

People have been creating their own kinds of Pokemon since the start of the sensation decades ago. 
While the recent Alolan Pokemon (based on the Hawaiian Islands) were certainly a breath of fresh air another place that would spawn an incredible set of Pokemon all of their own is of course Australia! Pixel artist Paul Robertson, best known for his work on the Scott Pilgrim game and his part in the popular series Gravity Falls, has taken the challenge to create a set of completely new Pokemon based entirely about Australia. These are based on not just animals, but also plants, food, places, and even sayings. Buckle your seat belts for this one, kiddos, for there are a whopping 151 to go through!

As always, to find more of Paul’s art, go HERE, and HERE!

Redditor Niboswald has also taken the opportunity to add some context to what the Pokemon are based on for those of you unfamiliar with all things Australian. You can check out those nifty details HERE, or even HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Cosmode Posing Tips

Creating a cosplay is challenging enough as it is.
It takes time, effort, and practice to get the job done but when it finally is complete the feeling of stepping out to reveal the fruits of your labor is exhilarating! Then someone approaches with a question that stops many in their tracks, especially the unprepared: “May I take your picture?”

Having a few good poses up your sleeve always helps and if you’re drawing a blank the Japanese magazine Cosmode has you covered! Here are some posing tips and tricks generously shared by cosplayer Firecloak (aka May Guo) from the Cosmode magazine app in their February 2017 and April 2017 issues. The app is available via iOS (possibly for Android as well but this remains unconfirmed) so be sure to show your support for their magazine buying issues via their app!

Are you tired of dragons yet?
Me either! In fact iguanamouth created a mini set of dragons that turned out somewhere between adorable and scary. Being stuck in a rut of wanting to draw dragons “but not the entire body” is exactly how these came to be! Inspiration comes from the strangest places…
