sketches from my sketchbook about Bug Dating Sim where you Date Bugs. I think this is ALMOST all the dateable characters? But we gotta add more. If you like them, I’d appreciate comments and suggestions for non-dateable characters!
Part 1 in a short series of Bug Stickers. Ii think they came out great! I’m considering candidates for a second sheet and possibly a third for non-insect “bugs” like snails and arachnids. Hopefully I’ll have these available to purchase at SPX!!
My coloring book, The Beginner Entomologist, is all printed and completely finished!! It’s chock-full of cool facts and activities about insects! Look forward to picking up a copy at SPX this Fall, after which I’ll be releasing a PDF copy for purchase as well!
Part of the Bug Gym outfit series, the first request done is magnoliapearl’s outfit for Paras!! Paras is such a cute pokemon, and I love how the outfit came out!! I think Magnolia looks really cute with mushroom bao-bao!
The coloring book I’ve been working on for the past few months is done!! All that’s left is to send it to the printers, but I wanted to share the finished cover just because I’m SO EXCITED!! I’ve finally finished a project all by myself!! I’ll be releasing a PDF copy in case you can’t make it to SPX to get a hard copy, but hhhhhhhere you go!!
There was a bunch of talk and thought about my becoming a Bug-Type gym leader in Pokemon, and I wanted to expand a little on it, if that’s okay!
A very serious trainer who emphasizes respect for Bug-types as well as any other type of Pokemon. Most bug gyms are super easy if you have a fire or flying type on your hands, but the strategy of this gym revolves around how bug-types can learn various movesets that can really surprise you! Fire-resistant Pokemon are used frequently, and you ought to keep a ton of status healers on hand!
The gym also serves as a greenhouse and a small sanctuary where bug Pokemon run free. In order to get through to the leader, you have to answer quiz questions about bug-type Pokemon correctly, but if you answer wrong, you face off against a swarm of powerful bug Pokemon. If you can pick them down, you might be able to capture something rare!
If you beat the gym leader, you get the Exobadge, shown on the belt and clasp (preferably one of the later badges- a challenging gym like this shouldn’t be placed at the beginning of the game).
All gym trainers wear armor based on bug Pokemon as a sign of their skill (Samurai Armor looks like exoskeletons, and Mushido [mushi=bug, bushido=samurai life, also kabutomushi=japanese rhinoceros beetle and kabuto=ancient japanese armor helmet] is a great pun) and battle with a good deal of strategy.
Green Amber, my gemsona! Her theme is a conifer, because amber comes from resin commonly found in conifers. Her weapon is a GIANT TREE ARM that can trap her enemies in resin when damaged. She has minimal control over plants, and keeps insects as a hobby.
