Sparks and Haku grown up by pichu90 Sparks and Haku grown up by pichu90
This is how I pictured the two as pikachus, however :iconstarwishermidnight: is the owner of Haku so it may be a different interpretation than hers :3

Nevertheless, Sparks is bashful around females at this stage, especially with Haku. Sparks never knows what to say so he usually stays quiet. I can't tell if they are cuter this stage or their pichu selves X3

By the way, the critiques are turned on intentionally as I want to push my limits this year.

First off, gosh how adorable. I always enjoy your cute style and you do expressions on your characters well.

I absolutely love the way you've rendered Sparks as a Pikachu here. He retains the relative youth of his Pichu appearance, while looking a little more mature as well. I can easily see this as being quite soon after his evolution and being surprised to see his friend has grown up a bit too!

I like the relative innocence of it too, he's taken aback because she looks pretty or the change surprises him, reminds me of those early adolescent days when you got interested in people but it felt like there was some crazy mystery or magic to it all. I think a lot of people can relate to that and you capture it in lovely nostalgic fashion here. Of course we all know those heady highs come with moody lows, will Sparks have to deal with those too?

To cast a critical eye on the art itself, I'ld say that as a simple picture this works really well. Your colour choices go well together, and the characters stand out nicely from the patterned background. Really the only thing is that Sparks' left forepaw looks a bit out of proportion with the right, I get it's turned facing the camera but it just seems a little weird. theres also one or two lines (like Haku's mouth) that maybe could of been a bit smoother. But I'm being a touch nitpicky on this point.

I'ld love to see you explore elements like Pokemon attacks. Now Sparks isn't a Pichu, he can use electrical attacks without hurting himself and maybe look out for others or set off on adventure. I think you have a lot of new possibilities for your character now, and very excited to see what's next!

Wow! I really love these piece! The emotions are really portrayed, and it's really pleasant to the eye. I think your lines could be a little more bolder! With a little more boldness on the lines, you could really see the colour jump towards you! I really like how you shaded the "white pikachu's" tail as well. It makes it look bolder! I recommend to shade by using a light source as well! It might help portray the shading a little more! By the way, thanks for letting me critique you! I hope to see more digital art from you! -Samantha

I like how sparks looks as a Pikachu! The only thing I see that doesn't look right is the size of the tuft of fur on sparks' head. Can you make the tuft a little bit smaller next time? Thanks! Oh and I think I like sparks as a Pikachu just a little better!

I think that Sparks looks cuter in pichu form, maybe give him another 2 or 3 years to evolve! :3
