Alolan Mewtwo I've been meaning to do a lineartless piece for awhile now. I ran into a BUNCH of super useful tutorials over the past few months and finally just sat down to do it. Really pleased with how this lazy mutant cat turned out <3

This... this is beautiful.

@PJSam: Thank you! :3
I'm here for the comics. September 9th, 2016, 3:12 pm
"Lazy mutant cat." I just enjoy seeing the disparities between Pokemon as according to different comics on this site.

@I'm here for the comics.: Well his full title is "purple fluffy lazy mutant cat Pokemon" but that's just a mouthful!

@Pokemontrainergigi: Pretty sure Mewtwo is hairless.
Pokemontrainergigi September 11th, 2016, 10:03 pm
@PJSam: It's hard to tell with Pokemon honestly. I like to think he's short-haired.

Perfect.

Beside the fact glasses doesn't work like that (I'm just going to assume he is using his psychic powers on those as well =P I guess his nose does help though) it is a lovely piece.

@Zelkova: I imagine the nose helps, as well as the fact that he's got his head back. If he sat up they'd slide down and dangle off his nose and he'd look silly, but with his head back gravity is doing its thing. I think. XD
Pokemontrainergigi September 10th, 2016, 6:04 pm
@Zelkova: Originally he had one of those glasses...holders? That go around the back of your head? (crap, I should have looked up the name while I was at work...we sell them) BUT I liked the look without it better XD He's too cool for gravity.

Thanks! C:

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! :D Mew-mew-m-m-m-MEWTWO! :D So happy cannot articulate Mewtwo in a hammock on the beach eep!

*deep breath*

Sorry about that. You may have noticed that I love Mewtwo. XD

I've missed your cute cartoony Mewtwo, it's good to see him again, and he looks like he's thoroughly enjoying himself, which makes me happy. :) I wonder if this is original Mewtwo on vacation, or some other Mewtwo created by Alola's evil team's scientists, catching some rays on his home beach?

*looks closer* You drew pads on his feet! It's funny, I recently decided that Mewtwo must have pads on his feet because it just makes sense, and right after that I see that sulfurbunny and now you draw him with pads. :) And I love how he's so very lazy that he's levitating his drink with his psychic powers so he doesn't have to take one of his hands out from behind his head. Just a question, though, wouldn't lying on his back put some pressure on his second spinal cord?

And I know this comment is long enough, but as someone who is very new to drawing in general and mostly draws Mewtwo, I have to ask: What, to you, is the hardest part of him to draw, and do you have any tips on how to make it easier?

Anyhow, I love this, this is gorgeous, fantastic job, can I have it on a beach towel?

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: MEWTWO FAN! *fist bump*

Everyone needs more silly Mewtwo in their life =P I've certainly missed him! I imagine this is the original, but if he does something "wrong" then it's DEFINITELY another one.

Haha, honestly I have no consistency with a few minor parts of his design. The start of the foot pads was a "happy accident" while shading XD I liked it, so I kept going with it.

I personally think his second neck is pretty flexible (otherwise, how can he move his head anywhere but straight forward?). So I think he's found a comfortble position (and by that I mean his second hand is slid between his two necks, which would seem uncomfortable to us, but I'm sure he's made it work XD).

Hardest part...hard to say. I honestly draw him so much I'm just use to him, so I'd say his hands, which is just a general difficulty of mine.

Thanks! Oooo it would look good on a towel O: When I finished, it reminded me of one of those "visit STATE_NAME" shirts so much I almost wrote that on it XD
ReaderWriterNerd&Geek (Guest) September 10th, 2016, 7:40 pm
@Pokemontrainergigi: *fist-bump*

Yes, everyone should have more silly Mewtwo! And Mewtwo needs to be sillier, it's good for him to loosen up XD And ah, makes sense. :) I've missed him too!

"We just call these happy little accidents." XD (You are quoting Bob Ross, aren't you?) It turned out really nice, and like I say, it makes sense that he'd have pads on his feet - cats do, and I think Mew does.

That's true, even in the movies it seems quite flexible (there's one shot in Mewtwo Returns where he turns to look at Domino and his second neck twists behind him), so probably he could find a way to get comfortable. One of my favorite things about writing (I mostly write) about non-human creatures, particularly fictional ones, is trying to imagine what would be most comfortable for *them*, even if it doesn't seem comfortable for me.

AUGH HANDSSSS *uses her own to tear at her hair* :P I keep discovering ways of hiding hands, so I don't ever draw them both together, and then I don't practice XD And Mewtwo's hands are hard because he has the little balls on the ends of his fingers and I can never figure out how to make those look right XD Feet are hard to me too; everybody's toes always turn up instead of lying flat.

We should find somewhere to make customized beach towels ;D And T-shirts, T-shirts too! Oh, and postcards! "Aloha from Alola!" or something corny like that XD

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: I meant to only show a friend of mine a clip of Bob ROss (she's NEVER heard of him!?)...we ended up watching an entire episode. That man is beautiful.

All the head-canon! Haha. I have quite a lot more about Mewtwo than I should admit? But it is fun!

Feet are fine...as long as it's not human feet. I've noticed a lot people seem to be more comfortable drawing people or animals...I fall in the latter camp. XD

I've found quite a few sites for t-shirts, though only a few allow copyrighted content. One I did find (RedBubble) seems too pricey for my tastes. But then again, I'm just not a spender. XD

@Pokemontrainergigi: Somehow my dad had never heard of Bob Ross, despite the fact that my dad's older than my mom (she used to watch it all the time when she was a kid). All it took was watching half an episode, though, and he was hooked. Our whole family loves Bob Ross now. <3

Oh, don't worry, I have LOTS of head-canon about Mewtwo! And other things! 8D It is fun!

I can draw...Pokemon. And occasionally an anime-style human (or humanoid creature; I have a little fairy I'm rather fond of). XD But I'll grant that animal or animal-like feet do seem to be easier to draw than human feet. Unless the human is wearing shoes.

I can handle feet, though, but I hate drawing them from the front. -.-

Ahaha XD Well, even if it is pricey, it's nice to know the option's out there if you ever do want to make your own shirt (I have fantasies of customizing my own Mewtwo fan shirt since Pokemon DOESN'T WANT US TO HAVE NICE THINGS :P).

And wait, hold on, you call Mewtwo purple?! :O I don't know if I've ever met anybody who calls Mewtwo purple instead of white or grey! I have spent my entire life looking for you! XD
Pokemontrainergigi September 15th, 2016, 11:04 am
@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: People who have never heard of Boss Ross confuse me. How do you live without that man in your life? D:

Haha, most of mine are "he's a cat, He probably does X". Probably doesn't help that I'd like a cat. Though I wouldn't name the cat Mewtwo, I'd be afraid he'd turn on me, destroy my house, and begin plotting the genocide of the human race before learning the error of his ways.

Shoes are great! Except I usually forget or don't have an imagination regarding them, so they're all pretty similar and mono-color |D

Yeah that front angle...why.

Mhmm, he's purple! The PokeDex says so, so that's good enough for me! Yeah, he's more grey and the PokeDex gets the colors wrong sometimes...but it's a purple-ish grey! And since he's purple-ish grey and purple that makes him more purple than grey. C:
ReaderWriterNerd&Geek (Guest) September 15th, 2016, 2:38 pm
@Pokemontrainergigi: I don't know. I don't know how I did. *shakes head*

Aha, me too :) I hope you can get a cat! And if you raised him with love and Bob Ross, he would learn that not all humans are bad and you could avoid the whole genocide thing. And just think how awesome it would be to ask people, "Do you want to meet my cat?" and have them say, "Sure," and then watch the momentary expression of panic on their faces when you say, "Mewtwo? Where are you?" XD

Mew and Meowth seem like less dangerous Pokemon-related cat names to me, though.

Haha :P I gave my little fairy guy shoes and couldn't figure out what they should be made out of for a little while (his other clothes are made out of leaves). I think I eventually decided on bark.

Yeah, I usually get my younger brother (who understands perspective on an intuitive level that I never will) to do it and he's just like, "Look, you bend them like that, and he's standing on his feet, see?" And I just sit there like, "But - how?"

Yay! I feel validated XD You have no idea how many times since I was three I've yelled at the book/screen, "He's purple!" Sigh. I'm not sure what the Pokedex was saying when I was little. Probably not much XD

Seriously though, even the novelization of Mewtwo Strikes Back got it wrong - Tracey West said he had "white" fur! (Granted, she got just about everything wrong, but still...) Fur is fine, I think he's got fur, but not white.
Pokemontrainergigi September 17th, 2016, 10:00 pm
@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: XD

I could always opt for the generic "fluffy". I'm sure nothing bad will happen that way.

Daw, that sounds adorable C:

Art is magic sometimes, I swear. Heck, I've even drawn stuff and given myself a "how did I just do that" reaction!

From what I can gather, Gen 3 added the color option in the dex. So depending on your start depends if it was there or not! (my first game was FireRed c: )

Actually, he may not be wrong! You look at some old Mewtwo art, and he's pretty darn white! Here's Red/Blue: http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:150Mewtwo_RB.png Depending on when the book was written in relation to the movie (maybe it was written based off the script), it's possible.

Or maybe he was just wrong. =P
ReaderWriterNerd&Geek (Guest) September 18th, 2016, 2:38 pm
@Pokemontrainergigi: But that'd be like naming your daughter "Hannah" or your son "John"! XD (Actually, I have a brother named John. I can also name at least three other people that I know named John. Add in "Jon" and there's even more.)

Thank you! :) And yeah, sometimes I'm just like, "And here's his arm, and here's his leg, and WOW that's perfect! Quick, ink it in so I can't erase it!" XD

Well, I didn't start playing the games for a long time, and when I started, I started with Red, so that explains it, LOL.

She, actually :) But daaaang, Mewtwo, you're all bleached! :O If it was based off the script, that would explain a lot - heck, maybe she was given the English and the Japanese script and told to mash them together, which would explain why the dialogue is often closer to the original version than the dub. And both the dub and the book came out in '99, so hm.

Still, though, the original was out already, and Mewtwo was lookin' mighty purple. It's a mystery *throws hands in the air*
Pokemontrainergigi September 18th, 2016, 6:21 pm
@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: I only learned of the "Jon" spelling of John recently, but I have to say, I really like it for some reason XD

The worst situation is when you're drawing traditionally and the head and body absolutely perfectly! ...then you realize their proportions are incorrect so you have to erase one... D':

Well there you go! =P

Yeah hard to say, who knows what decisions go into these things. But MRF I thought she was a she! Oops! I checked your post to confirm and...Rereading I now see that "he" I saw was referring to Mewtwo, but in my haste I just grabbed the first pronoun I read |D
ReaderWriterNerd&Geek (Guest) September 26th, 2016, 8:15 am
@Pokemontrainergigi: Ha! I was exposed to Garfield comics early on in life, though at first I think I thought Jim Davis was misspelling "John" XD

Fun fact! "Jon" is actually short for "Jonathan", which is much closer in meaning to "Nathanael/Nathaniel" than "John". :)

GAH I hate that! Or how about when you're coloring traditionally, and you make the wrong thing the wrong color? DX

"The Shadow knows..." Um, anyway. Ah, pronoun troubles, we all have them at some point. Don't feel bad; I keep thinking of Tracey Sketchit.
