Bad Pokemon Art and OCs

This blog showed up on tumblr’s recommended thing a few minutes ago, and I just thought the idea was sweet. D’:

Pokemon, stop givin’ me feelings.

Can I just say how happy it makes me to see that people are having fun using my base?? Like you're all just such amazing creative and funny people imma crai I love you all. QwQ

Thanks for making it! A lot of people seemed to have a good time with it, lol. |D


The Team Rocket grunt is supposed to be James… (also hates that Weezing)

Hmm… the Weezing is an example of odd artistic freedom. I’m on the fence about it, personally! I like how the medium sized one looks, but the way the gas is, it looks sort of…. uhh…. like shit;;;
As for James, he looks a touch too “manly”.
But yeah, this isn’t “bad” so much as it took a lot of liberties. D:

The most original OC ever omg!!1! <3333
Step 1: Take a Pichu
Step 2: Give it a bow and scarf
Step 3: Name it after yourself
Step 4: Mash it all together and you get TE MOST URIGINUL KARACTR EVUR!!1! DU NUT STEEL
Also, the genius behind this piece is one of those typical people who abuse Photoshop probably for the sake of popularity or having “good art”
Sorry sweetie, but the burn and dodge tool will not make your art look professional in any way. It makes you look like you have no idea what you are doing. What have you done was practically slap on a layer of black and white for crude shading and light source. Also, why does the scarf, arm, and body fade to white randomly?
You tried way too hard to make your artwork look 3D, didn’t you? The head looks fine but everything else looks flat. Do us a favor and go back to drawing stick figures, please.

Woah now, let’s park the harsh train in the station for a sec.
Granted, this type of OC is a dime a dozen (especially on dA), and so is burn/dodge abuse, but let’s pause for a moment.
This looks like the work of a kid, y’know, probably no older than 15. One dA search later, and yeah, she’s 15. That’s a pretty typical age for pretty much everything you see here:
Amateur at digital colouring
Cookie cutter self-insert character
Giant honking dA watermark
There’s plenty of room for improvement here, but telling them to go back to drawing stick figures is not the way to go about helping. Instead of being so snooty about it, why don’t you actually give her a legit critique and some pointers? :/
This isn’t some hilarious recolour nightmare, or anatomical abomination. It’s just… generic (seriously, do a search for Pichu OCs and count how many that wear scarves and/or bows with a fringe of hair).

People sure are baffling, gosh

Can't Team Bidoof and Team Zigzagoons be friends? I'm on Team Bidoof, but there's enough berries to go around.

I want a Team First Route Normal Type Pokemon

While on the topic of scams on trades, one day my sister went on a trade with this guy and they wanted shinies, so she showed one, and they showed a regular polar pattern vivillon, and kept showing pokemon with nicknames like "it's shiny! :D" we laughed and she removed this guy lol

WELL ITS NAME IS SO CONVINCING

HOW COULD ANYONE SAY NO

Don't forget about the "diancie egg for shiny" scamming going on recently too. Be careful with your shinies, trainers!

But… but why would you believe thaaaaat
