My first Tumblr commission! And I couldn't have asked for a more epic piece. It's for a member of the PAC (Pokemon Adventure Challenge) community, of his character Keye and his Swampert Spriggs brofisting like a boss.
I'm gonna admit right now that I had a lot of fun drawing Keye, though all that curly hair and body hair almost killed me, as did the Hawaiian shirt! But I got it figured and it turned out awesome!
I looked to axolotls, mudpuppies/necturus', toads and newts for the Swampert's design. Axolotl's gills don't look so frilly outside of the water haha
Also decided to try colored lineart and I think it was worth the extra effort! I'm really quite proud of this piece.
If you wanna see details of their faces, check them out here! Resizing absolutely slaughtered the details here.
