Catch the Squirrel by Orioto Catch the Squirrel by Orioto
Hum, something new here, not perfect yet :p

I wanted to try something like that for a long time actually. Rather than doing a fanart, why not try to be the FARTHEST possible of the game.

That's where i had the idea of doing some 17th style painting (Obviously i don't have the skills at all, but hey, the boy has a really 17th stence at least^^...) that would evoke a game or a movie in some rather different context. I really like the poetry that could bring the concept, but i'm not completly there yet ! We'll see where this new collection brings us :p

At least, the advantage of doing something like that is that i can sell a print of it ! Despite i'm not sure anyone will want any :p

Update : The reference a little more obvious now with more content :)

I really like this - its totally pokemon.

The style is really a departure, but I think a successful one altogether. I would like to see more of this kind of thing from you.

Well done!

The boy looks perfect but the girl doesn't, something about your art always looks very flat and the perspectives and shading always look off and awkward to me. The squirrel and fox look good but not organic to the environment, they look kind of pasted on instead of actually on the grass. I like the feel o f this though, and the color of the sky. The scenery looks the best to me. The animals and the girl kind of make it look awkward though.

Hahah I was so happy to realize what it was before I looked for the answer :XD: It was definitely a little on the tricky side, but kinda fun to figure out. I like the idea you were going for! Wouldn't mind seeing you try this with something else, so long as it isn't totally obscure to begin with!

Well, I guess I'm not hip enough to get it, but I do like the style you've used. I would definitely believe it was something from the 17th century, so... well done. :-)

A-HA, I *know* why I didn't get the "Pokemon" vibe before! The grass isn't tall! :D Like the new fox. Also, I believe I hadn't spotted the bunny next to the girl before, I thought it was a branch or a pile of stones. ^^; Definitely looks like Pokemon now that I know what game it is, go figure. Great job at fooling everyone!

I see. Have you ever thought of doing a landscape or a scene tutorial? I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in seeing your processes and learning from them! I know you've done a few in the past.

Lovely painting, though I would have made the boy a little more light/faded like Disco Box said (aerial perspective?). Amazing greys on the sky though and I loooove the little detail work on the squirrel.
