A new year, but sadly not much has changed as far as my time is concerned. Mostly just posting to say "I'm still around / semi-active." Sorry for not uploading much art lately.


I haven't had much time to devote to Sugimori-style art but I'm going to try to make time to do some soon. Up next should be Chesnaught to finish off the Kalos starters, and after that I'll see if I can focus on Megas or something. There's a lot I want to work on, so I'll try to pick up the pace somehow.

For now I've mostly been recoloring some of my old Generation 6 art to include their shiny versions. Gogoat, Mega Mewtwo Y, Mega Venusaur, and Mega Blastoise all have shiny art, so if you're interested check those out. If there's a specific piece of Generation 6 art (Megas and Kalos Pokémon) I've made that you'd like to have a shiny version for, post it below and I'll get around to adding it to the original art when I have the time.

Xous i was wondering i can use your amazing sugomori altered pokemon artwork for some thumbnails i'm making for vids ?

Yes of course, that's fine with me. All I ask is that I be credited for the artwork somewhere, like in the video description, if possible. It just helps prevent people sending me messages thinking the artwork was "stolen" or something. (If you don't want to provide credit that's fine as well.)

Hi there Xous! Ive loved your work for about 3-5 years now!! I was wondering if maybe u could make these rough sketches of some Fakemon i made look all official/professional. Thatd be AMAZING if you could! (If you are only willing to do one, do the one on the left/Ying)…

Hello, it appeared that your artwork was spread through the FaceBook when I came across to that, and thought I had never seen it; copied/pasted it into my gallery. Schorchingskys pointed me to you since you're the original owner of that picture. I apologized for posting it without your permission.

Therefore, I came here to ask you for your choice; either you allowed me to continue displaying it and directly link it to your original one in your gallery, OR, ask me to delete it and I will have to announcing the fanfavorite your reason of removing it from my gallery in my journal. Either decide is up to you, and I can only respect your, not other that nagged me for your defend - as they are not responsible to making me removing them, as it is for your.

You can answer back in either here or on the Note, I am a-okay with either way.

Thank you for taking your time read this message and consider of what to do with the taken picture. Again, I truly apologized for placing it in my gallery - only without your permission.

Umm... Hi there!

First of all, I'd like to say I'm a giant fan of your work, all of it is immaculate in every sense of the matter. Sometimes I think you do Sugimori better than the man himself ^^"

I'd also like to say thank you for providing many communities with your art, even with you being so busy with your life. In saying that, if you are too busy to for this, then it's more than understandable and thank you for even just reading this.

Anyhow, the reason I'm commenting is because, with you being the number one person at Sugimori art, I was wondering whether you'd be willing to take a look at a piece I've been working on, following yours among other people's guides.

It's currently in progress, hence me noting you instead of just linking you to the DA page, and I've got down everything but high-lights and the grainy overlay-thing. I was just wondering your opinion on the shading most of all as well as everything else you see.

Anyhow, that's all, I just want to say again, thank you for taking the time out of your day to even read this. Please don't feel obliged or anything to respond if you don't want to and have a wonderful day.
