Pokemon OC - Sylvie and Liuwa by KalineReine Pokemon OC - Sylvie and Liuwa by KalineReine
I drew this for the :iconwelovepokemon: Trainer contest.

This is Pokemon Trainer OC, Sylvie. She’s been my character for a long time, but I’ve never gotten around to drawing her until now, sadly.

Sylvie is from Goldenrod City, in Johto. And that is her Vulpix, nicknamed Liuwa. (Actually, Liuwa was born with only 5 tails, but I drew her with 6 here, for the contest.)

She has silver hair and silver eyes, as you can see. She doesn’t carry a bag like most trainers… Instead, she has a strap around her leg, which she uses to carry Pokeballs. She is also a Pokemon breeder, and specializes in breeding Eevees. ^_^ Her other current Pokemon are: Espeon (Kijit), Umbreon (Aakal), Meganium (Halao), Pidgeot (Svatin), and Dragonair (Niohn). [Nicknames are in parenthesis.] Her dream, however, is to collect all of the Eevee evolutions…

The setting is supposed to be her hometown, Goldenrod City, at night. Liuwa is lighting the way for her. ;P I would have put more detail into the background, but I ran out of time. This is my first time drawing flames, and the lighting was difficult… ^^; Sorry if it’s kind of off. I’ve never drawn Pokemon before, but if people like it, then I intend to keep trying. It’s not perfect, but I worked really hard and did the best I can. The hardest part of this were the flames, but that was also the most fun. :heart:

Thanks to :iconsenshistock: for the pose reference. (She has awesome poses!) I used this one as a reference: [link]

This is amazing! And the effects of the fire are very nice. Where on earth did you learn to do that? You have a magnificent eye for fashion, by the way.

Well, it took a long time. I didn't submit anything for 2 years, but that doesn't exactly mean I didn't draw. I just taught myself, with tutorials and help from friends. :D And thanks, I get that a lot about the fashion thingy. ;P

Thanks... I spent a lot of time on it. The fire was probably the most fun part to do, aside from her clothes. *secretly loves designing outfits* :meow:

Actually there are lots of good fire and flame tutorials on DA. I kind of used some of them but then put my own twist on it, after seeing what worked for me and what didn't... I rarely get the chance to draw special effects and stuff like that. :XD: So this was a lot of fun.

Thank you... I keep trying to improve on this style and do it better each time if I can... I kind of messed up a lot with this one, but I want to draw her again, maybe better next time. ^^

I'm really glad you like it. :D And thank you so much! <3

:) Yeah, after all drawing over and over again makes it get better. lol. I find patters in drawing my own. But you did full body I should try that

Your welcomed. Ah right now I'm watching Pokemon with my baby brother lol, the diamond and pearl one. ah, I can never get over this show lol.

Well I had a really good pose reference. Otherwise I may not have had the courage to try full body. I think using references helps, but some people are really picky about if someone uses their art for reference. I personally don't mind if anyone wants to reference my work but...

I get most of my poses (when I use references) from :iconsenshistock:. She is great, and very open-minded about what you use her stock for. :D

I have a lot of catching up to do if I want to make it to Diamond and Pearl. And I really need to watch it. XD I have no time, it sucks. But I love the show... And the games...

Eli-phunk Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2010
Wow, :iconsenshistock: she really has some really good poses. I suck at full body since i never know what to do with their hands or legs -specially males they are hard- lol But i try to imagine something on my own. But you are right, reference to poses are good. I see why yours are good...:)


Lol. I know what you mean. with school and studying and everything else there is not time to watch anything. I actually starter buying the dvd's of any pokemon i can find but even money is low ><

I have that same problem. And I am really bad at drawing hands if I don't have a reference. But the funny thing is, since I started using references, I think it's getting better. Maybe to the point where I can draw okay without a reference. I might try doing some pics like that soon...

But yeah, her gallery is great. :D I can't take credit for the awesome poses she comes up with. (Even though she says we don't have to credit her for just references, I do anyway.) Though I'm thinking about just putting on my page or in my gallery somewhere that most of the poses are from her gallery, unless otherwise noted. XD I use her stock too much, maybe. But every time I'm looking for a pose, I look elsewhere first and come up with nothing. So it's back to her gallery to find what I need. Lol.

I like DVDs so much better than watching stuff online. I did the same thing with a lot of series... But the way I look at it, I can always buy a series, watch the entire thing until I'm sick of it, then re-sell it and use that money to buy a new series I haven't seen... The only flaw with that plan is that I get attached and end up wanting to keep all of them. :XD: I don't have Pokemon yet, though.

:) lol. I try to use my own hands for reference, but male hands and female hands are all diff and all that >< Ah, that's good it shows that you are improving in your art. Hm, If you do I hope to find it >< I have like 10,070 messages of pics I still have not been able to see lol Im a mess

Yup it is. I think she doesn't want to take credit is cause you can go outside and discreetly watch people and take their poses lol >< I've done that a couple of times ^^; It feels like im stalking sometimes XD But at least she's nice to let you use her stock :)

Yeah me to. So much better from watching on line. Guess we have the same problem, we get attached to our things lol. I only have pokemon ^^; haven't really bought much of anything else. :)

I did that for a while... It works, but with some positions it's just awkward to do while drawing, and I have problems knowing how big to make the hands, and at what angle to have the arms and all of that. It's just really hard for me. ^^; But now that I'm getting more of a sense of how to do it, it shouldn't be as difficult, hopefully. (I still don't even like my drawings, but everyone is their own worst critic.)

I have a lot of message to catch up on too. :O_o: It's crazy.

Yeah, I've actually done a few pics using my own poses like just take a pic with my camera or something. But I'm picky so it takes hours to get it right. :XD: I still do that sometimes.

Pokemon is awesome though. :D

Thank you, I'm trying... :icongwompplz: I'm not totally happy with it, and there are lots of mistakes, but... I'm still proud of it because I think I did well considering how long it's been since I've drawn anything. XD

I think using poses from other people (like this one from :iconsenshistock: ) can really make a difference. Before when I made up my own poses, I don't think it was as good. ^^; It's still a challenge to find a pose reference that's what I need for the pic, and that people will let me use, though. ^^
