PKMNC: The Roost by BrainDeadMareep PKMNC: The Roost by BrainDeadMareep
:iconpkmn-crossing:

Sorry for the huge size! It's a lot of detail to cram into one picture. I don't think I've had so many characters in one setting before! I used a quicker, blocky-er paining style for this. Not too sure if I like it, but I wanted to try something new. Sepia tones for practice and also because it's quicker.
Anyway, this is just a little scene of some of the residents of Pokette Town enjoying themselves at The Roost Cafe. I'm upset with myself for missing the Harvest Moon Festival event and wanted to draw a big scene like this for it, but I was preoccupied at the time. Everyone in this is the character of someone who commented on Lawrence's application and welcomed him into the town (plus Bless and a cameo from Aria). He has a hard time making friends, as you can see here. I don't know many people in the group yet, so I thought this would be a nice way to say hello and thank you. :)

From right to left we have:
-My own Lawrence the Blitzle
-Valerie the Tangrowth who belongs to ~PrinceCharmander
-MingMei the Mienfoo who belongs to *asmari
-Bless the Togekiss who belongs to ~Crimson-Jazz
-Leslee the Nidoqueen who belongs to ~DarkestDragon302
-Jenna the Ampharos who belongs to *BehindtG
-Hickory the Butterfree who belongs to *Lhumina
-Samir the Lairon who belongs to ~Twero
-Maddison the Oshawott who belongs to ~Glidel
-Manny the Electabuzz who belongs to ~blueartistry90
-Aria (the human) who belongs to *Cyanide-Tea
-Vincente the Tauros who belongs to ~KaiKooon
-Montreal the Girafarig who belongs to *Synthem

And I had Brewster in this for a while but It was just TOO crowded. xD He's probably in the back getting some supplies...

All the Pokemon here are characters of members in #PKMN-Crossing. And seeing as you aren't a member... no.

How long did it take you take you to make that? I'm still working on my pokemon sheet.

Hmmm, probably about a day off and on? I'm not a very quick worker but I think the fact that it was monochrome and I didn't have to fuss with so many colors helped speed things up. :)

Really beautiful work! I adore sepia tones, they bring just enough color to monochromatic schemes to keep it from being a snorefest.

As for critique... I'd suggest working on the lighting and contrast a little. You've got a couple of really harsh lights in the background, and those look like they'd dominate your eyes if you were actually there in the room. Everything around them would look a little bit more dark in comparison... plus, it may help to get the characters and the scene to pop out more if you worked on that contrast.

Just me being the really nitpicky art student, though. It's really minor and it's not that big of a deal, just something to think about. The rest, including the lighting, looks fantastic! :D

Oh, no, you're not nitpicking at all! That's a really valid point. I mean, having a good sense of contrast in monochromatic images is a really big deal, right? Thanks for pointing that out to me. I haven't done very many pictures without color to rely on so I... don't really know what I'm doing. :'D I'll take what you said to heart and learn from this. I appreciate it. :)

You're very welcome! Monochromatic images look /awesome/, but sometimes if you're too used to color doing all the work for you, the values can kind of pin you into a corner. I struggle with values too, so it's something we both need to work on, I suppose!

Good luck! :D
