Sure, why not. I haven’t pokemon-ed since gen 2 but unf, monster drawing is my jam. And if people want to make suggestions to cure my art block, they can, I may or may not draw them depending on if it clicks in my head.
How do you decide how to begin when drawing expressions? Mine always look so forced and i'd love some advice
Exaggeration, that’s usually the first thing that comes to my mind when trying to draw an expression, adding more and more details to the expression itself makes it look more exaggerated and interesting, depending on what you want to convey it helps a lot! Always think why not take it one step further.
It’s important to use as many references as you can too! See how the face behaves and what key features make up the different emotions, you can even make the face yourself to sort of feel how your own muscles and face behaves from it and give you an idea on it.
There’s no obligation to include racism, transphobia, homophobia, and misogyny in your fantasy world. It doesn’t add “realism”. It’s uninteresting and never actually justified in the narrative. If you can’t create engaging conflict in your fantasy story without resorting to the aforementioned shitty things then you’re not a good writer lmao

a/n: I have re-written this part so many times because I originally had two different ideas for the ending - one got people (my proofreaders) screaming at me, while the other had so many plot holes in it which made me unhappy with it. I finally wrote this version down after taking a nap this morning and got a much clear head. Sorry if it’s too sappy and sorry if I made some mistakes in it - I’ll probably come back to edit this later (let’s just hope I won’t change my mind once I do that and erase the whole thing to make an entirely different ending cause I did that once lol). Thank you for reading and please let me know what you think. I’m sorry for the long wait.
