Father's Day 2020: Bushy Brows

Expressive eyebrows! Not sure where Kent's eyebrows come from, seeing as Nidoking don't have hair. I drew this to be something of the male version of the "Mom Laugh" mother's day picture from 2018.

Fathers Day 2018/ Summer 2018

Some men just like it hot. This picture is a reference to this pinup here, but I thought this would be funnier.

Easter Fools

Once I knew that these two holidays would fall on the same day, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, with who, and during what timeline (The Dumb Big Sister timeline). I knew there'd be a bit of sacrilege, but coming from Nini, I think we can all forgive it. After all, she's only being herself. The only thing I didn't have hard set yet was the setting, but this seems to be great for maximum embarrassment.

Grillin' with daddio. A "Dumb Big Sister, Stupid Little Sister" inspired piece art for a change.

Now You're Cooking!

Two happy Nido cooks, Arnie and Nidorina, who enjoy making food. The big difference is that Arnie does this for a living and tends towards making gourmet meats or otherwise fancy stuff. I designed the characters based off these ideas: Arnie = short and squat, and Nidorina = “child bearing cartoon mother”. Additionally, Nidoran male has a lot of points, so I sort of built him off of diamonds and sharp edges. Nidorina contrasts by having more curves, circles and rounded edges. The very first idea was more exaggerated and more rigid with shapes, but I wanted the characters to still look recognizable and not take it too far where they become an overstylized generic rabbit and some koala-mouse-rabbit (specifically aimed at Mrs. Nidorina) looking thing. I'd say the characters don't actually look like this (well, Arnie doesn't really).

You can view the rough version of this illustration here, and an overlay of the rough on top of the final here.
