EDIT: I fixed the fire. :]
EDIT 2: For some reason I didn't have the actual art files for Heliarcat?? And I didn't feel like looking for them. So I just decided to redo its art anyway. Sabacier's is missing as well, but I don't think its art needs to be redone as urgently.
Computer was mean, else I would have drawn this yesterday.
And it would have different style lines.
That's the only thing I'm happy about as far as my computer's hissy fit goes. I know they're thick now, but I'll thin them down.
So what happened is compy got grumpy and slow, then it refused to let me log on to my account in normal mode, then it screwed it up entirely and I had to delete and remake my account. And then it decided to tell me that my hard drive is failing. So now I'm trying to copy the contents of my hard drive onto an external hard drive. And I'm scratching my head as to whether or not to attempt to a) Ask my parents for a new hard drive b) ask them for a new computer (lol, I'd rather see new gutters and roofing on my house, though) or c) ignoring my computers protests and carrying on as per usual. After all, it is still hanging (tenaciously) to life. I think I'll stick with c until I can figure out how to politely and cheaply obtain option (a) for a computer that's approximately seven years old.
Oh, how I wanted to shoot my computer yesterday. It was slower than molasses and everything kept freezing.
Heliarcat. Like I said, I love the lines. The flames are iffy, I like the ice, and I think If I can thin the lines and focus on shading for a while, then I'll be fit as a fiddle. That and getting all my sugi-style texture thingies back.
I may do Sabacier later if the desire strikes me, but I also really want to get this baby sprited. Something tells me I'll be very happy with the resulting flames.
Heliarcat are pokemon that weather extreme temperatures in order to nomadically search for food. They prefer northern climates, where their fire keeps them warm, but they can also be found less commonly in deserts where the ice aspects of the body keep them cool. They ignite the bottom of their feet to melt through snow, and plants often spring up where they step, which attracts many herbivorous pokemon. Needless to say, Heliarcat often backtrack to find a good meal. They have the widest internal body temperature range of any pokemon, some individuals having temperatures as low as 30 degrees Fahrenheit and others as high as 200 degrees. It is said that of you were to calculate temperature to the thousandth of a degree, you'd find that each Heliarcat has a different body temperature. They increase the size of the ice block on their tail for use as a large bludgeon, and it is possible to see the receding lines on its tail.
Shoot, was gonna upload this earlier, but when shopping. Oh wellz.
