    Day # 11 of my personal challenge. Today's Pokémon was Spoink, and the details that were supplied to me were: "Shaped like an egg with little ears on its head. It has no feet and it has an orb in its head. It has a pig snout and a bouncy tail."

    Now I have a general idea on what spoink was before she gave me details, but I haven't seen enough to know every detail, so without wasting time, I began drawing.

    Edit / Proccess: Well since it's head was basically it's body, I decided to start with a vertical oval shape. After that, I decided to draw the eyes. I could've gone with the eyes that I'm used to drawing, but I decided to go for something else this time, I know these aren't the real eyes of the spoink, but I went with them anyways (mainly cause I wanted to). Then there was the snout. It wasn't difficult, but I did redraw it a few times cause I've made them too small to begin with. Once that was done, I went with the ears and the orb. Once those were done, I gave the thing some tiny arms and a spring for a tail (I faintly recall the spoink to have one). To finish it all off, I added a bit of shading for some (cough) detail.

    Day # 12 of my personal challenge. Today's Pokémon was combee, and the details that were supplied to me were: "Three hexagons connected like a honeycomb, one in the bottom and two on top, with a face in each one. The bottom one has a bee butt, and the ones on top have one antena each. The bottom also has a upside down triangle on its head. It also has wings."

    I already had a basic idea to what a combee looked like, and I hated it. I didn't have the proper tools to make a decent hexagon. I honestly spent 30 minutes looking around the house for anything that might help me. Sadly, I found nothing. With a defeated sign, I began drawing.

    Edit / Proccess: I already knew this from the start, but the damn hexagons were gonna be a big problem for me. I spent a fair bit of time just making them. After I made three hexagons that somewhat pleased me, I moved on to making their faces. I decided to give them each a different face, but nothing too special. I knew I had to draw the butt, so I had to somehow make it somewhat 3D. Unlike the Charjabug, I didn't enjoy this one due to the hexagons. After the 3D body and the butt, I gave the things an antenna. After looking back at my instructions, I realized that I missed the wings and the triangle. Realizing that I spent actual hours on making this thing, I decided to leave it like this. Could've been better, but my laziness got the best of me.

    Aside from the wings, it's pretty much spot on! Male Combee don't have the triangle, so I wouldn't worry too much about missing it.

    Day # 13 of my personal challenge. Today's Pokémon was Solrock, and the details that were supplied to me were: "It's got a circular body with seven spikes sticking out of it. It's got circles for eyes but it's squinting, with 6 eyelashes on each of them. It's got some rocks going between the eyes, and the spikes."

    Just by reading the name, and description, I already knew it was going to be resembling the sun (Sol means sun in Spanish). But besides that, I had no idea what else was going on, so I grabbed my pencil, and began drawing.

    Edit / Preccess: Drawing three circles were probably the easiest part of this whole drawing. The most difficult thing in this drawing had to be figuring out where I'm gonna put those spikes. I knew they were supposed to resemble the rays of the sun, so I wanted to make it symmetrical. Dear god was symmetry a pain. Eventually I gave up on symmetry, and went with whatever I could. Since I didn't know what my partner meant by rocks, I decided to add small rock patches around the things body and spikes. Eventually I came out with this horrible creation, and if you're anything like me, the more you look at it, the more you start to dislike it.

    That looks pretty good. Really close it's spikes are slightly more jagged normally but that looks neat better than I could do!

    Day # 14 of my personal challenge. Today's Pokémon was Woobat, and the details that were supplied to me were: "Fluffy ball, heart nose, smiling, one sharp fang in the middle of the mouth, bat wings, no ears."

    When I read that last bit, I was a little confused. A bat would look weird without ears, but it's not like I can just add them in now. Without further delay, I began drawing.

    Edit / Proccess: Okay, first things first, the head. I drew the nose, gave it a smile, and two eyes. Now, when my companion said it was a fluffy ball, I thought they were using that as a figure of speech to explain that the bat was fluffy, so I decided to give the bat a body (That's where it all went down hill). Once I got the bodies general shape, I gave it wings. Now I didn't knew how bat legs looked like exactly, so I just gave it weird little stumps for legs. If I'm gonna be honest, I was kind of lazy today, and accidentally created a hideous creature. The only thing I actually focused on was the mouth and the wings (which ended up being a nice practice for me). This was a failure, but at least I had some practice with drawing bat wings.

    I apologize for not posting yesterday. I was very busy, and I barely had the change to draw. Sorry about that.

    Day # 15 of my personal challenge. Today's Pokémon was vanillite, and the details that were supplied to me were: "It's an ice cream cone with one scoops and plop of whipped cream on top with a swirl. It's cone is shaped like a wafer cone. It's got two diamonds on its cheeks and one in the middle. It has round eyes and it's smiling."

    Okay so here's the thing, I was never good at making swirls. So when I read that I had to make swirls, I stared at my partners PFP while giving a defeated sigh. I also had to draw an ice cream while it's hot AF right now. So that was a little bit painful to do.

    Edit / Proccess: Okay, so I decided to start in the easiest of places, the cone. Once the cone seemed passable, I went for the first scoop. I personally thing I did it too big, but that's just me. Once that was done, I had to do the swirls (YAY). I actually spent a lot of time in those swirls. Once I got the to an adequate state, I continued with adding the face. I wasn't sure where to add the face, so I placed it on the swirl. After that, I just added a hit of detail to the icecream.

    These entries are hilarious to read and regardless of how accurately you copy the Pokémon, the drawing always looks pretty good for someone drawing from memory! I really like your shading technique. I hope you keep doing this for a while, it’s very entertaining :D

    Here's the thing though, I'm not drawing from memory. As mentioned in the beginning of this thread, Pokémon is not one of my strong suites. I don't play the games or anything, so I only know a few Pokémon by memory (mainly gen 1).

    All of these drawing are made with bits of details that a friend of mine is supplying me with.

    I usually use a physical reference so I’d consider what you’re doing drawing from mostly memory just because I’m hopeless without a picture to base my drawings off of!

    And I agree with you. Drawing withough a physical referance can be a pain in the neck (most of these drawing take hours to make), but that's the point of this thread. I'm challenging myself to draw without using an image, otherwise, it wouldn't be much of a challange.

    Most of the time, yeah. Just to compare the ones I did to the actual one. Like for example the sentret, I botched the poor fellas arms.

    I apologize for not posting yesterday. My partner was busy for most of their day, and is going through some medical issues. I'm planning on getting a secondary helper, for when my first one is way too busy. If anyone wants to take that spot, just post a reply here saying that you wouldn't mind being my secondary helper (preferably if you have discord).

    Day # 16 of my personal challenge. Today's Pokémon was Swablu, and the details that were supplied to me were: "Circle, Cloud wings, Two little antenna looking feathers on its head, a beak, little feet, eyes, and a bird tail."

    NoooooooooooO!!! I've always tried to avoid birds. Why do you ask? Cause I can't draw FEATHERS!!! I haven't started yet, but you'll see in the end that I can't draw feathers. Let's see if I can prove myself wrong.

    Edit / Proccess: Lemme start with a round body. I'm gonna purposely gonna give it a pointy tip in it's butt, but it'll be a placeholder for the tail feather I'll draw in the end. Once the body shape was complete, I had to draw the face. Due to my (painful) past experience drawing a certain moon, drawing a beak wasn't as difficult. After it's face, I had to think of how big to draw the wings. Normally the wings of a bird aren't so big, so I'll go with that. After taking about 20 minutes of trying to draw clouds for wings, it was time to add the feathers. I decided to start with the antennae first, and it didn't turn out well. After getting a decent antennae feathers, I had to begin drawing the tail feathers. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to make this work, but I've failed every time. I can't draw feathers for the life of me, so I decided to give up on the feathers, now it has a pointy butt. I also noticed that due to the angle of the body, I didn't have enough experience/skill to draw it's feet, so let's just pretend it's legs are under it. Once completed, I looked up the actual swablu. At first I though I made its body too plump, but after looking at an acutal swablu, I noticed that I didn't make this bird plump enough.

    Again, I'm sorry for not posting yesterday. My friend went to the clinic yesterday and got some pretty bad news. They're pretty depressed and I don't know how to help them since I'm bad at comforting. I don't want to bother them while they're sad, so I tend not to ask. Again, I would like to have a secondary helper so that when my current friend's busy, I can avoid missing a day. I don't mind who wants to help, but I would prefer it if they had discord. If any one of you guys wish to be my secondary, just drop me a reply.

    Day # 17 of my personal challenge. Today's Pokémon was Koffing, and the details that were supplied to me were: "It's just... a lumpy circle. It has a circle and a crossbones."

    My friend gave me so little details cause they knew I somewhat know what it looked like. Still, the lack of info was slightly troublesome due to me having doubts with my own memories. Knowing I wasn't gonna get anything out of my friend, I began drawing.

    Edit / Proccess: I began with the most obvious thing, the circle. Normally, I would use a circular item to make a perfect circle, but I was too lazy to go get it, so I made my own circle. After the circle, I made a smaller circle inside the main body ("It has a circle...”). On the inside of the second circle, I drew the crossbones. Imidiately, i felt like something was already wrong. Something about the second circle felt wrong (cause it doesn't belong). Unable to put my finger on it, I had to move to the face. That's when I realized, I didn't know what koffing face looked like. Guess I had to improvise like all the others. Once I drew the basic eye shape, I asked myself, "How do make these look more disturbing?". That's when I added extra lines to the outsides of the eyes. And to top it off, I gave it a somewhat disturbing smile, cheeks and all. After the face was complete, I added the details that koffings are known for. Here's my little disturbing boy.
