Ok to start, daaang this looks cool! It's such a simple concept, yet I feel you were able to capture beauty and meaning in this. I just love how shiny the Pokeball is. It looks like the pokebal is some sort of powerful treasury, that holds something great inside it, instead of how it's shown in the anime and games as being common and unpowerful. Ok I love the background. It just looks so captivating, and it reminds me of the weather it would be when a trainer gets his/her first pokemon. I also just love the reflection of the trees on the top of the Pokeball. It looks like the Pokeball is reflecting everything in the forest off it's shiny surface. So dang nice.
The one thing that I have to say bothers me about this, as someone said before, is the placement of the watermark. I too feel like you could have placed it in the bottom right corner or left corner, as most other artists to. I feel like the eye naturally drifts that way if you want to find the watermark. I feel as though it takes some of the beauty away form the background. Very nice picture other then that :'D
-after writing critique an was about to submit but looked over the drawing once more, I noticed in the reflection of the Pokeball what seems to be someone reaching for the Pokeball. I didn't notice this at first, but I love how you sort of hid that so that someone would have to search for it. Very nice, and made me love this piece even more!
Hi, I recently found a picture of yours on google and I cannot find it here to purchase. I was wondering if I could use it in a metal lyric video. I will give you full credit. I believe the name of the picture is called Beneath. Please email me Cassandra1781@gmail.com Thank you
I got to love this How the water surrounds the pokeball, and the colors of it contrast so nice over that grey background. This makes me think of my childhood and gives me the need of holding a pokeball ones again in my hands. Makes me think of what pokemon would i choose to be in the pokeball for me.
Is this a toy pokeball, or handmade? Cause i got to love it, and would like one like this standing on a mini pedestal, to show with my big figures.
You are very wellcome! So this is the collectible?! T:T... Actually, i should have get one by the preordering of my pokemon X... but the shop cheated on me, and gave them away before the day we could get the game... So i didnt get my pokeball... And i even looked for the shop giving just the pokeball away! I hate them so much... Actually i wanted to use that pokeball for my special figures colleccion i mentioned ^^U... But cause i didnt get it... i guess i need to find another pokeball that looks perfectly like a real one... one day.

Nice pic! One small point of critisism; I don't like the prominent location of the watermark. If people want to know who made it they'll look for the artist. In the lower right/left corner and 50% smaller is big enough.
