I loooooove this Pokemon. I don't own one because I'm too lazy to make Swadloon 'like' me enough to evolve. And my starter was a leaf.


Flash and Photoshop~

This art is amazing! :)
Would you mind if I used this art on a post background on a site called PokéFarm? Full credit will be given to you, and it won't be used for in-game profit.

Dude what are you talking about. Sewaddle levels around 20, and then my swadloon evolved at level 27. Just use it in a gym battle and make sure it doesnt faint. Oh by the way, thanks for the new backround!

Mind if I ask what you used flash for? I'm used to seeing people combine Photoshop and Illustrator, so I was curious as to why you chose Flash instead.
Kuitsuku Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011
Flash is much, much faster and convenient for drawing in. I drew the entire character in Flash, lineart and all, and just colored it in Photoshop.
This character was drawn entirely in flash, even the coloring: [link]
If I had attempted that in Illustrator, it would've taken me days to finish! :)
Nyxxism Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
In what ways do you find Flash more convenient? I know Flash's interface is more similar to Photoshop's than Illustrator's.

Sorry for asking so much. I'm teaching myself Flash and Illustrator, so I want to see other people's methods of using them. I've always enjoyed your art style, so it interests me how and why you use the program.
Kuitsuku Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011
Well in Flash you can draw freehand vectors, like drawing in photoshop. Illustrator is very limited in that aspect, and you pretty much have to use pen tools and be a lot more exact. I would never suggest people drawing in's just too time consuming. A lot of people think it's amazing how people can draw such detailed vectors, but then I'm like 'you could have done that easily in flash, what's the big deal D:'
I loooove illustrator for graphic design, it's the only program I really need for that. Photoshop is great for detailed works that involve soft shading, and flash is convenient for cell and gradient shaded images and animations. :)
Nyxxism Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I hate to bother you so much, but I'm very curious about it. Could you teach me more, or maybe a small, quick tutorial of some of the different things you know how to do in Flash?

I actually have a project I'm currently working on where I have to do small animals (doggies, kitties, bunnies, mice, etc) for a game. I was asked to do them in Illustrator, but every time I try, I feel like I'm struggling so much with it. I'm wondering if maybe it would be easier for to do it in Flash, especially since these drawings might have minor animations.
Kuitsuku Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011
Well...I don't have a lot of time to do a tutorial, but the only tools I really use to draw in flash are the brush and the eraser. Under the paintbrush is a little circle with dropdown settings to draw only on selected fills, paint behind, etc. I use the selected fills so whatever area I click on is the area I shade in. :) Whala!
Nyxxism Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooh, nvm. A friend of mine showed me where the drop down for selected fills is. Now I just need to practice with it.
Nyxxism Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
You use CS5, right? I just purchased it today but I'll have to wait until I get home to install it. Until then, I'm dealing with CS4, so I don't think I'm seeing some of the same tools as you are.
Makkeman Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Burgh's Leavanny had really awesome voice. I just watched that episode.
Now I'm leveling my Swadloon up to become a Leavanny, too. :)
faster-by-choice Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I really like this. The pinks in the background complement Leavanny's colors really well. Plus, that's an awesome Pokemon right thar :3
rainbowjellyfishlove Featured By Owner May 13, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
there's two easy (kind of) ways to get this pokemon.
(1) dig around in shaking grass at lostlorn forest (5% chance though!)
(2) use a soothe bell, get your bicycle, give the bell to your swadloon, and run all over the skyline bridge (or whatev it's called) several times until you get 15000+ steps, then level up your swadloon!

KirstenChocolate Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011  Student General Artist
I agree with CombuskensFlame, the design you did in the background, along with the composition show that you put a lot more thought into this than some typical pieces of fanart I see. Which makes sense in my head.
And aw! I thought this was the evolved form of Sewaddle!
CactusCandle Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011  Student Digital Artist
That's awesome! 8D I love the shading, and the background, and the pose, and basically everything 8D

I love this!! How did you get that watercolor look to the image?
Samata94 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011  Student General Artist
This game got way to many cool grass pokémon, is impossible to choose one ;_;
although I chose Snivy as my starter and he is awesome.
I love the colors in this, they mix awfully well with each other.
owlity Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011
This Pokemon is AWESOME. I can't get enough of your amazing coloring!

I don't know any of the new pokemon but I love this background and the texture and shading in this pokemon. :)
NextGrandcross Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011
I made sure to catch the lowest level Sewaddle I could find in Pinwheel Forest(LV.14) and pretty much only had it fight Audino's to level up fast. Also theirs a store in Castelia City were you can give your Pokemon a Message and also u should put Swadloon in front of your party and run across the Skyarrow Bridge a couple of times.

Trust me, it works, and a Leavanny and also a Swoobat are well worth the happiness cause both are destructive.

Love the image here!

Awwm cute! I really don't like grass pokemon very much, but I do think Whimsicott is just about the cutest thing ever. Swadloon is pretty cool lookin' too :Ţ
