6. Mother by RhaedaLeeMire 6. Mother by RhaedaLeeMire
Anyone remember two years ago when I’d just started writing TMRC and said I was going to draw a picture for each chapter? Well, I thought I’d try my hand at it again. This is an illustration of the battle scene from Chapter 2. I thought it fit well with the "Mother" theme because it displays Nidoqueen's protectiveness toward her adopted daughter.

Overall, I’m proud of the end result. Rhyhorn is a difficult Pokémon to draw, especially when there are so few references of how it looks from the back. The setting almost looks a little too alive for the paralyzed future, but then again, so was Dusk Forest. Any dungeon where the Nidos go to forage would have to be somewhat fertile, anyway.

There are a few other nitpicks I have, but rather than bore you with my own perfectionist ramblings, I’ll let you be the judge.

This artwork clearly displays a scene that was well written in your fanfic. The grand details on the two Pokemon, Ryhorn and Nidoqueen, show the emotions expertly. The scared human, obviously yourself, is very well drawn. The scene and the title match perfectly. I would be able to tell what was going on just by looking at it. This drawing not only shows your skills in drawing, but also reflects your skills in writing. You should be proud of this drawing. I myself envy this drawing. You are very skilled, I cannot exactly tell you what my true emotions I have for this artwork. I am nearly speechless. It shows that your are, by definition, a true artist.
What do you think?

This artwork shows how much someone can draw with it looking realistic even though the subject of the art is not a real life thing. The shading and different coloring of this drawing makes it seen like you are right there at the battle of the two creatures. the intense, anger-filled mood of the picture and those features make your mood in real life feel the scaredness of the little girl behind her pet-like creature. This is an awesome drawing of an action packed battle between a rhyhorn and a Nioqueen but i would pick the rhyhorn to hide behind even though the Nioqueen wins at the end.

Oh wow, great shading on the trees. And I guess you've got a point with the background there - I think I remember the trees in Dusk Forest in the actual game itself was green too...

Poor Leah, she looked so scared. You captured her emotions very well. (:

Thank you! :D And yes, they were green, with the occasional flower or grass patch on the floor. I kind of used Dusk Forest as a loose reference for the random dungeon.

Good to know. :)

I remember this scene. Aw, so beautifully written and now beautifully depicted.
I think, as you said, naturally some areas would have to be somewhat fertile in the paralysed future, so of course the background makes sense. And the colours in the trees are so wonderful I can't even tell you. Little Leah is just adorable, and you've done a shockingly good drawing of Ryhorn from behind - it's true, you don't see many shots of those. Overall, another spectacular artwork. I love the way you draw, always have, and it's so good to see you haven't lost those skills. :)

Thanks for your thoughtful comments! :D It's always a joy to hear what you have to say.

You'd think all those long breaks I take would have some kind of negative effect on my drawing ability, but they don't. Makes me wonder how much I'd improve if I stuck with it on a more regular basis. XD
