You guys are frikkin' awesome :>

Just saying :>


No need for another long journal about life and stuff. I have to make some changes here and there about the frequency of my submissions and what I do submit, because there are projects and such I really want to do outside of Poképeeps. I really appreciate knowing that you all are able to be patient with me :> I wish things were easier XD; Buuuut y'know. It's not 9_9

But thanks for your support, I really appreciate it :heart:

#029-34 Nidoran Family by MagpieFreak
#029-34 Nidoran Family

HOLY MOTHER OF MAGIKARPS! The entire Nidoran family?


Yis :>

I've not forgotten about Poképeeps :> Today's a Wednesday which means it's a legit day for a Poképeep day! \o/ I'm sorry I've not been able to post things regularly recently. There's been a lot on my plate, and I'm not sure when I can post the next Poképeep, so to make up for it here are six of them in one go! Nidoran♀, Nidorina, Nidoqueen, Nidoran♂, Nidorino, Nidoking!

And I'll take this opportunity to make a brief tribute to my wonderful Wacom Bamboo Fun CTE-650, which popped its little clogs halfway through the creation of this piece. I had that tablet for around 6 or 7 years, I used it to create countless pieces, win competitions, ace assignments, create comics, and so much more XD Luckily I had a spare tablet on standby - I actually bought it last year because I was convinced that the CTE-650 would give out at any moment - didn't expect it to last another year XD But now it has passed, and I've got a newer generation of Bamboo (it's so damn tiny XD), so onwards to more arting!

I'm not sure where to start with the Nidoran family :> They're all unique in their own way, and although I started out with one idea of how the design would go, after colouring it things seem to have changed. I used to have Nidorans in my parties, but very rarely did I keep them until they had reached their final form - I guess I found more interesting Pokémon on the way, but I suppose what did impress me was that Nidoking and Nidoqueen could use Surf, among other cool moves, and maybe that's what finally convinced me to keep them - they're strong and reliable. They're big, they're imposing, yet regardless of their intimidating exterior, they're the elders of a large family that they are dedicated to looking after and protecting, as their elders did before them. So here is a large family with a variety of personalities and ages, all grouping together for a family selfie :>

I hope you like it!

The next Poképeep is Clefairy, and I'm not sure when I will be posting that. Stay tuned though! 

You can find more Poképeeps here!

Today at the MCM Comic Con was madness - absolutely stuffed with visitors, awesome cosplays, lots of goodies, lots of fun :> It was great meeting up with deviants and buying artwork! \o/
Hey peeps!  :> Is anybody going to the London MCM Comic Con this weekend? I'm visiting on Saturday :D
Peach Sisters by MagpieFreak
Peach Sisters
And what is this picture? Earlier this year I took part in The Tea Book project with a load of other UK artists. The book is a collection of various tea flavours interpreted into the human form - and I went for Peach Tea, because after my Hungarian experience, Peach is the new Pink B> The book is probably available in the MCM this weekend - it's scattered around various stalls I think, because there were so many artists. I've not checked with anybody yet so I'm not certain how much and where they will be on sale, just look out for this and you'll be ok :>
 The Tea Book by MagpieFreak 


This piece was unbelievably fun to work on XD I started out with just one character (the girl at the top), but there were so many aspects about peaches that I loved, I had to open it up to embrace more characters :> I have a little sketch dump of the girls somewhere, I should post it up some time :> I really enjoyed designing brand new characters and giving them new personalities and dynamics, it all felt so fresh, and an awesome break from what I was working on at the time. I'd love to see them again in a future project XD Honestly there's so much about this picture, I don't even know where to begin, so I'll just descibe the characters who are here :>

On a mission to discover the secrets of Nature’s fuzzy gem, three avid peach fans trundle through the terrains in their stylish caravan. The erudite scholar leads the way; what she doesn’t know about peaches isn’t worth knowing, but that won’t stop her from learning them anyway. Navigating the route is the culinary experimenter who can whip up a flurry of recipes and pharmaceutical benefits from the edible wonders in a flash. And atop the travelling exhibit of eccentricities snaps away the third fanatic, the audacious photographer, with her marvellous viewing gadget recording and chronicling all of the scrumptious sights discovered on the journey.
By the power of friendship, little fluffy sheep things, and their undying love for the prunus persica, the vibrant trio will bring the joys of peaches to the rest of the world!


I hope you like this piece :> It's nice to post something that isn't a Poképeep once in a while, hehe XD I'd love to have more time to work on some more art like this in the future :>

I found you because of Sandslash, which is AMAZING and translated to 'follow me now and give me 75 llamas' but i can only give one but we can all pretend its 75 right? Yeah, sh, that's exactly what happened. 

But yes, your art is amazing!

I immediately began looking for Flygon then noticed you seem to be going in order. I will wait 3000 years don't even test me.

Aww thanks XD The  llamas are much appreciated XD :heart: I'm really glad you like my art XD

And yes, I'm doing the Poképeeps in the order of the NationalDex because it kinda makes things a bit easier for me XD Sometimes if a particular design sticks out, like Lv.62 Old Man Zagoon or Lord Helix, I might deviate from the path for that exception because I am compelled to draw it XD But otherwise it might take a while to get to a particular Poképeep XD Sorry about that, but I hope it will be worth the wait :>

Thank you again XD :heart:

I stumbled onto you completely by accident, I was actually checking out Kill La Kill stuff and your Sailor Moon pic popped up somehow.  But whatever, am I glad I found you!  Your art rocks.  AND you live in the UK!  

If it's not too much trouble, can you "Like" me on Facebook so we can talk over there? I have LUCRATIVE OFFERINGS to discuss with someone with talent like yours! fb.com/JoshClarkeDraws

Ah hello :> Unfortunately I don't have any commission info up right now. My schedule has been all over the place recently, and I'm waiting for things to settle down so I know exactly how much time I can allocate to commissions. I think things will be clearing up in about a week, so hopefully I can post something up then :>
