Finished Marill

By on May 19, 2017

I finished this a couple of days ago. I didn’t want to just post some phone pics of it so it took a couple days to get the opportunity to take some nicer pictures. I had fun doing this one. Some parts were a little frustrating while others turned out really nice. I mentioned in the previous post that I like doing pokemon drawings because they are simple designs that are easy to customize. I picked this guy because my colored pencil collection is still a bit weak. I have the blues all covered and that is the Marill’s main color. It was able to expand my greys and then start my reds. I am still getting a feel for the pencils and the larger areas of blue proved to be more of a challenge. I was anticipating this which was why I started with the snake-like Dratini. I am still thoroughly impressed with the quality of these pencils. Even in the places the drawing became...

Marill Update – Ink

By on May 4, 2017

This little guy seems to be coming along nicely. I cleaned up all the pencil sketches after I took the picture so it is a little cleaner. I’m going to start coloring it tonight. I’m pretty happy the weather is finally starting to get nicer. I was able to get out for a nice 4 1/2 mile run last night. I ran the Pokémon Go app so I was able to hatch a few eggs. I hatched a Charmander and a Squirtle from a couple of 2K eggs and I hatched a couple of 10K eggs too. One held a Scyther (CP 1366) which was pretty cool but the other had a Pineco (CP 580). A Pineco out of a 10K? It only had 5 candy too. I suppose I shouldn’t complain too much after the Charmander and Squirtle but still.Milwaukee’s Best PrintshopOnline Printing

New Pokémon Drawing – Marill

By on May 1, 2017

I’m still building my colored pencil collection so we are sticking with the blues. I don’t know why I’m doing more Pokémon. I guess I like how simple they are and how it is to make subtle changes to make them even cuter. I am still playing Pokémon GO so seeing them everyday probably has something to do with it.Speaking of Pokémon Go, my nephew was confirmed this last weekend so we went on a little road trip to see him. As a surprise my brother-in-law took us to see a play. Being a surprise we didn’t know what to expect. It was a musical based on “Finding Neverland.” It was wonderful. The cast was great. The production was spot on. It has been a long time since I’ve seen a well produced play so the use of screens and moving images in the background was a bit of a surprise.The kids in the performance were amazing. I don’t know exactly what...

Pokémon GO! Update

By on Feb 13, 2017

It has been a little while since I posted one of these. I spent all Friday coding so my head was splitting. I took off a little early and the weather was nice so I went and did some Pokémoning. It was a nice park with a Onyx nest. There were huge signs nailed to the trees cautioning people of thin ice. I saw at least 20 people just out wandering around on the ice. I should also mention the temperature was around 40º.Milwaukee’s Best PrinterQuality Online Printing

New Drawing – Fearow

By on Oct 6, 2016

While playing Pokémon GO I have been obsessed with expanding my PokéDex. The new buddy system has been great. Spearows are rare in my area but because of the Buddy System I was able to evolve a Fearow. I’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks. I needed something to draw so here is the start of my Fearow. Updates to follow.Custom and OnDemand CalendarsMilwaukee Printing

Pokémon GO continues…

By on Sep 26, 2016

I went to visit some family this weekend. It was my nephew’s birthday so I took him Pokémoning. We went to a park in Neenah, WI. I was really looking forward to spending time with my nephew. He was the reason I started playing Pokémon in the first place. Honestly I’ve gotten a little burnt out on playing. The new buddy update was ok but all the spots are starting to seem the same. I haven’t added anything to my Pokédex in a while so aside from hatching eggs it has gotten a little mundane. Neenah was SO much different. It was so much fun. There were all kinds of new Pokémon. My nephew was in heaven. We were super cold sitting on the lake but other than that it was great. He had a smile on his face the whole time.The other thing that was great was seeing the diversity of people. There were all types of people. One picnic table of players looked like extras from The...
