Pokémon series: #013 - 015

Ahh, we're into the scary side of the early-game bug types. I always liked Beedrill's design because it seemed so intimidating (I'm both terrified of and allergic to wasps), but sadly it's pretty weak in-game. It was much more fun to paint than to battle with.

As usual these are available to buy in my online shop. Due to my country having inexplicably just voted to commit economic and political suicide, it is a great time to order from the USA because the pound is very weak and the exchange rate is good!

Pocket Witches: Humblebee and Liliwen

I said to look out for more Pocket Witches, so here are some! These were designed as a gift for my little sister.

The Pocket Witches now also have a fixed backstory: Pocket Witches are magical creatures about the size of your hand, who gain their powers from positive human emotions. They spend their time trying to make humans happy, and when they're born they take on the shape of something that brings happiness to a nearby human. They choose their names themselves, so they can be named anything from 'Lucy' to 'Paint Water' depending on what takes their fancy. If you're feeling sad, maybe a Pocket Witch will visit you and try to help!

So here is Humblebee, who took the shape of a bluebell, and Liliwen who took the shape of a daffodil.

Pokémon series: #010 - 012

We're out of the starters and into the early bug-types! I always liked this set because they're all very tough, and Butterfree learns psychic moves long before you find any psychic-type pokémon. It's an all-round good choice of bug.

The originals are available to buy in my shop, as usual.

Pokémon series: #007 - 009

The third and final set of starter pokémon for the Pokémonathon! These ones were a little harder because, I'll be honest, an animal that's just a big rigid ball with nubby legs is hard to pose. I'm very pleased with them now they're finished though!

The original paintings are available to buy in my shop, as usual.

Pokémon series: #004 - 006

Here are the second set of paintings for the Pokémonathon! I always choose the fire type starter, no questions asked. This is probably a terrible gaming tactic but I love them too much to reconsider.

The original ACEO-size paintings are available in my shop.
