I CALL IT BOLD AND BRASH
(I don’t know much about this game except for a few choice spoilers and I won’t get to play it until I can scavenge it for cheap so until then I’m just gonna interpret it as a weird sitcom)
Day 9 - Ghost
I already drew most of my favorites last year and I’m trying to avoid repeats… that’s not entirely true though, my favorite Ghost type is literally “all of them. every single one.”
Ghost/Fire was a type combo that was a long time coming and I’m glad it went to something with such a cool design.
when I was a little kid, I had a cheap dollar store children’s book that was an otherwise pretty straightforward retelling of “The Nutcracker”, except I guess the person who did the illustrations wasn’t actually familiar with the story so for some inexplicable reason instead of looking like this:
the title character was drawn as this type of nutcracker:
and it wasn’t treated as weird or even really pointed out in the text at all like it was still written as if he was a wooden doll thing and specifically pointed out his “red jacket” a couple times yet in all the illustrations there’s this faceless emotionless set of metal jaws running around and dancing and wielding a sword in place of the main character and it’s never explained AT ALL and it was all just so incredibly surreal
I wish I still had it, but my parents got rid of all my old kid books years ago :(
Day 8 - Flying
squawk squawk fashion baby
I will forever imagine Mandibuzz speaking in a stereotypical “snooty cartoon rich lady” voice.
If pokemon is gonna keep having an electric-type rodent every region when are they gonna have a naked mole rat whose face and teeth look like an electrical plug
so I tried to make it look a little bit like the actual electric rodents but I ended up with some kinda weird Slowpoke/Bidoof hybrid, OH WELL
their hairless skin is loose and rubbery so they’re protected against accidental power surges also they plug their teeth-prongs into each other’s nose-sockets to communicate in dark tunnels I guess
I need this
