Natu by Zalcoti Natu by Zalcoti
For the :iconpokedorks: contest 43.

I am very proud of this piece. It brings together a lot I have learned in the past month through tutorials, especially when it comes to value. It just brings my artwork to a whole other level.

Just a little Natu hopping around.

Pokedex Entry - "Because its wings aren't yet fully grown, it has to hop to get around. It is always staring at something. "

I really love the perspective here and the sense of movement. The colours you used, the lighting, the background and just everything in general is beautiful.

I like the way you didn't painted the ground where it's supposed to be. That adds some movement into the whole image...if you know what I mean ^^;
Also nice choose of colours. The green bird catches the eye, but not too much that the viewer would't look at the background. Nice work :)

Yeah, I spent a lot of time on the background alone. It would look fine even without the Natu in the image. Thank you :)

This is definitely one of your best artworks ever! As someone already mentioned, this looks like it aught to be on a Pokemon card. The scenery, color choices, and shading are all amazing. And I love the way you slightly altered Natu's design by giving it more realistic, lively irises and differentiating the patterns on its wings into distinctive parts. The angled horizon and midair pose give the piece overall a wonderful sense of motion that really shows off the intended Pokedex entry nicely.

Overall, fabulous! Perhaps my favorite entry so far, and definitely a :+fav:!

You've taken on an interesting style here! Almost looks as it was taken from a Pokemon card! XD
