- For each of the 20 first people answering this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!
- If you answer, you are advised to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place. NOTE: The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!
- If you can, please enclose a review of the artwork you chose as well!

Unfortunate Cofagrigus is, to me anyway, teeheeworthy. I laughed quite a lot, especially because the coffinmon is juxtaposed with other powerful Ghost types. XD (Disclaimer: I don't discriminate against gay people; however, the name truly IS unfortunate. XD) Shadow Darmanitan is quite beautiful and balanced. Hyper Mode is quite limiting, but his other moves more or less make up for the slight loss in power. His more or less hefty 100HP is good; his RC of [c][c][c] is a little limiting. No weakness is excellent! It's something that makes him very useable on most decks. Resistance, though not much of a help generally, is useful. Vanilla-Attacks are good, but unless you have some Rainbow or Miracle Energies, they're going to be hard to set up. I just like the beauty of the dragon-dolphin-things. There isn't much to say for these, just that they're beautifully crafted.

(This one was brought over from another journal. Aki, if you want me to choose another set, I can!)
I really liked the Dragonair. Before Johto, Dragonair was my favourite Pokémon, before Espeon and Umbreon came out. What I especially liked was the simplicity of the pose: like the Sugimori Arbok. It also fits the Valentine theme (for which it was coloured) perfectly. The Meowth too is cute, in a "Nyaa-I-gonna-jump-on-you-sit-on-lap-lick-you-up" kind of way. Er, to put it simply, it looks like a cute little house cat. Ho-Oh is just a simple, non-coloured sketch. (Isn't there a term for that kind of sketch, vanilla-something?) However, Aki has done a really good job of it, and the small details are finely worked out.

I don't know what's Smosh, but I like the Metro hipster personality. He's nicely made, and he looks good. Eh, I don't believe in spending time on appearance, and I really don't like the choice of clothes, but when you look at it, the clothes fit each other and him (figuratively)!
The Ark looks pretty good. I don't know how big people make Minecraft stuff, seeing as I don't own an MC account.Still, looks good!

Meganium is pretty. Aki chose a beautiful green quite close to the original. Meganium is one of my favourite Grass Pokémon (my favourite starter) and I think this art does him justice. While the base of the body towards the tail looks a bit odd, I really like it, especially because of his cute expression! The flower is well done, and the colours are generally well matching. The Byakko cat looks good as well. The lineart is slightly shaky, but the design and conept are good. The design is handsome, and I really don't have much to say after that. Messing with Photoshop 8 looks like a grille to me, like a door grille or something. It's interesting and drawing in!

I like the Charizard. It's shaded well, and it shows an impressive command of anatomy. I, for one, can NEVER do that kind of drawing without a couple of reference pictures.
It's beautiful, as I said! The same goes for Jirachi. It has a beautiful shading, and it has the cutest expression! It's also well drawn! I also like Colouraptoran; he reminds me a a quetzal. He's beautiful in his own way!
