Sapphire pounces by PrettySoldierPetite Sapphire pounces by PrettySoldierPetite
I told myself that I really, REALLY wanted to take it easy on the "Poke-spam" for at least one week, but I just couldn't help myself... we finally, FINALLY are getting in official English dub of the Ruby and Sapphire arc of the Pokemon Adventures manga and I read the first volume this week and then this just kind of spilled out of my pencil after reading just the first couple of chapters because I was so happy to finally meet Ruby and Sapphire properly. (Yeah, means that a drawing of Ruby is coming next week...)

I tried really, REALLY hard to focus on getting the hands to look correct here and I'm fairly happy though I'm sure they still look awful. The toes, sadly, were kind of ad-libbed because, like an idiot, I didn't think they could be as difficult as fingers, but I still just HAD to add those "claws" and I tried to keep as much of the dirt(?) and scars/scratches as I could and I made sure not to miss that bit mark on her arm as soon as I noticed it. The grass skirt kind of suffered a little, but I think it's at least passable and poor Torchic (who was perched on her head here) had to be omitted completely because of space and when I did try to squeeze him in he somehow ended up looking like an "Angry Bird". :doh:

Pokemon and all of its creatures/characters, including Sapphire, are (c) Satoshi Tajiri, Nintendo, Game Freak and all other respective owners may have missed/not be aware of. The Pokemon Adventures Manga was written by Hidenori Kusaka and published by ViZ media. I do not own the character in any way, shape or form, I am just a fan!

Wow, what did make her go wild? I don't want to get accoss her in this state.
Good Job on the pose and the right Hand, you really have improved on hands! The fingers of the hand on the floor look great too, but this hand seems to be missing a palm. Naked feet are just as hard as Hands, that's why I often try to avoid them, but you did well here too! Just the smallest toe of the left foot appears a bit to broad. Tha grass skirt turned out very nice, and the expression is the crowning. *Looks around for a safe point* Cool one. :thumbsup: :D

It was Ruby. :giggle:
He was under the impression she was actually a Pokemon when she saved him and he saw her completely covered in some kind of blanket made of leaves (think "Creature from the Black Lagoon" but with regular leaves instead of seaweed) and when she spoke it scared him and he threw his Pokedex at her head.
The palm did not appear visible to me in the image I was drawing from because it is lying flat on the ground though I probably still messed up some of the spacing here that cuses the palm to be completely obscured. I'm glad the rest of the image turned out so well, though and the toes, as I said, were ad-libed for the most part. If I had re-opened the image I may have been able to notice but if this is the exent of the errors here I will still consider it a victory!

These are certainly the features I tried to capture best and I'm glad this comes comes through. :giggle: This image in particular I kept debating on weather or not I was satisfied with.

Still... she looks like she's ready to up and do the battles herself.

Good luck against creatures that, y'know, can breathe fire.
