Wow Zipo, I'm amazed by your progress since the start of this thread! Keep it up!
(And maybe draw more digimon, yes?)

Didn't draw much this month because I had to have surgery in the middle of the month.
Also watermarking everything I submit to dA now due to previous cases of art theft, and just people in general using my art without permission or giving credit.

I've actually debated about locking this topic since the art community on CI is pretty much dead.

Happy 2016

I will be editing previous posts due to the fact that many of them contain now-broken links.

Waiting till the start of next month to post any new art (don't really have anything new to post right now anyways).

But I figured it was worth noting that this topic is now officially the most viewed art topic on Chao Island, with 82,803 views as of this post.
Honestly I am quite proud. I started off as a newbie digital artist when I first joined CI, using only MS Paint and a mouse. Never did I once think back then that my art could evolve into even half of what it currently is. I really have to thank everyone who's supported me as an artist over the years, as without it, I doubt I would've been able to keep the motivation to keep drawing. It makes me happy whenever I can put a smile on someone's face from the stuff I've shared. So seriously, thank you to everyone who's posted/viewed my art!

Congrats, Zipo! All of the views and positive feedback are definitely well-deserved; especially with how long this thread has been running, too. Hopefully you'll keep on going, and coming out with more of your really cute art. ^^;

I've been wanting to do commissions in recent times, but I've unfortunately been unable to, due to people having a lack of interest in them (or at least, the people who look at my art have a lack of interest in them). Which really sucks because in my current state, I am unable to hold a regular job, and thus don't really have a way to make money. It's a bit discouraging..

Quadruple-post, oops.

Posting an update in this topic early, because reasons. Seeing as how I am now a part of CI's art team, I kinda feel it's necessary to state this here while it's still on my mind. I'm probably not gonna post art that I do for CI in here, because if it's used elsewhere on the site, there's really no reason to post it here. This topic will be for stuff I do on my own time. Depending on how often I have to do stuff for CI, updates here may be less frequent, and/or contain less art, but we'll see what happens. In the meantime, have a drawing:

I still suck at backgrounds, but you can at least see the huge difference in how my art was 7 years ago, compared to now.

Hi, after you posted on my art post so I decided to come check out yours, and wow, it's so good! Soooo much better than my digital work! xD
I especially liked the Pokemon 20th Anniversary and all your Chao OCs are so cute!

Welp, my tablet is pretty much on its last legs, as it keeps malfunctioning. So I think it's safe to say that it's time for me to get a new one (this one I've had for nearly 6 years, so I shouldn't be surprised). Unfortunately, I don't exactly have the spare funds to buy one at the moment, so this means I may have to go into a forced hiatus (at least for digital art) until I can, which likely won't be until Christmas, unless I become desperate enough to try and take commissions again (with traditional art), which I've never been able to make more than maybe $2 from, due to lack of interest from people. So until I get a new tablet, or I switch to traditional art and/or take commissions, monthly updates will be suspended.

In the meantime, here is [what could be] the last [digital] art I'll have here for a while:

Sorry for the really big necro post, but your artwork is SPECTACULAR! I don't know why anyone would ignore such masterpieces.

Also, on a minor side note: Zipo is super cute! I'd love to know what type she is so I can put her into my game with the Chao Editor.




Also, if you're actually reading this, I'd just like you to know that you are awesome! Don't feel pressured by the fools who ignore you. My only request is that you feel happy and enjoy life!



Lots of warm wishes,

Lucky :chaohappy:
does it sound too friendly? sorry...

I wouldn't say this topic is really "ignored", but it's just not that active. I've been using this topic to post art for over 6 years, so what else is there to say? In all seriousness though, your comment did cheer me up when I read it, so thanks!
_________________________

Anyways, I have some good news: I now have a new tablet, so I can finally get back into digital art, though it will take a little bit of time for me to get used to this new one, as it's about twice the size as my previous one, plus I have gotten rusty with drawing in the past few months. For now though, here's a practice doodle I recently did with it:
Image

And just for the heck of it, I'll also show off these traditional drawings I did a little while back:
Image
Popplio (couldn't reliably scan this one without tearing it out of my sketchbook)
---
Image
Basic Child chao (practicing with new markers)
---
Image
Thorax's transformation (experimenting with multiple utensils)
_________________________

The next few updates may be slow, or not have much new art in them, but keep in mind that I've barely drawn anything since my last update, so I'm gonna need to find my footing when it comes to drawing again, which may take some time. But I have returned.

I actually based that drawing on an actual bootleg figure that I own. It had a bad paint job, but the figure's molding itself was actually somewhat accurate.

__________________________

Only one new drawing for this update, and sadly it's a drawing that was supposed to be in last month's update, but I forgot to post it:

In other news, still suffering from some major art block, which is not helped by the fact that even when I do have an idea for a drawing, or some motivation to at least doodle, SAI doesn't always want to recognise my tablet, and thus won't enable pen pressure or stabiliser. Don't really know how to fix it yet, it just kinda fixes itself when it feels like it.

Lastly, another thing I forgot to mention on the last update, I recently went back and updated as many links as I possibly could on one of my 2009 art topics, as many of them were expired. So if you want to see some art even older than the stuff on the first page of this topic, you can check it out here (but be warned of my cringey 13-year old self):
http://www.chao.hippotank.com/forum/vie ... 13&t=11744

I don't think this really needs to be said, but I'll say it anyways just in case. PLEASE do not bump that topic, I would've had it locked, but I still want to be able to update the links in case they become broken again. I really don't want it to end up locked just because somebody else decided to bump it after almost 8 years...

Trying to draw my Keroro Gunsou FCs, since I neglect them a lot. Don't ask why Kazeze doesn't have a shadow, I'm lazy.

Still struggling with art block, but hopefully I can at least keep the motivation to do small doodles like these.

[EDIT] Forgot this:
Image
Zipo reference sheet. Do note that because I take a lot of inspiration from the Sonic X art style, Zipo is shown with only three spikes (regardless of angle), as opposed to six. Drawing Zipo with six spikes is still technically correct.
