Yup, I'm still alive and still hard at work at a lot of stuff. I just wanted to drop a preview to this and another project (see project links, hopefully I'll have more to show in a separate post later)! If you are interested in showing support for these and more, consider becoming a Patron! Thanks!

Project links, etc:……
I've Yet to See the One Who Can Resist Baby Chicks
This is Kitty, possibly the spikiest Nidorina OC that *still* retains the Nidorina silhouette in existence. Perhaps you've seen her before, she's nearly as old as Aqua Bunny.

An art trade with :iconmetallicumbrage:, and since I seem to be playing catch up with all Nido OCs who've at one point been on AB, it seems like doing one of Kitty is right on schedule. It's always fun for me to draw Nidorina, but I found something quite appealing about doing this one in particular. I can see why you keep her around! Hopefully all the markings are in the right place.

Now, Kitty likes to put up a tough front, but as you can see, she's starting break, and trying not to "daawww". Perhaps one day she'll turn these chicks into metalheads. I figured this pic would be just the right amount of cute. I also left the picture transparent, just in case you wanted to do something else with this, Umbrage. Now you don't have to worry about pesky backgrounds!
Pie Contest
Alternate Title: "Nobody Likes You, Dedede"
I was just waiting for the day someone would finally request something Kirby. I mean, I've only been hinting at it, like, forever. Kirby is the series I cut my artistic teeth on, and got me into drawing stupid comics to begin with. AND got me into animation. So yeah, I'm gonna go a little overboard.

Wait, a little? DragonBlast71 only requested "Dedede about to eat a pie", I think I went too far! I'm out at sea I'm so far off course. But I technically crossed the finish line first, I guess my brakes were just cut.

It appears everybody wants a chance at sending Dedede to the emergency room, either because they're tired of working for him or they're tired of working against him. The only one taking this seriously is Waddle Dee. That French Silk was made with love, yo.
Nothing Says Baditude Like a Cig
"Hey kids! Be cool like me!"
Have I won yet?
A Sneasel/Bulbasaur fusion with "With lots and lots of attitude! ;D", as requested by :iconbafa:. I dunno about you but nothing says baditude like a cig.
Trade requested by :iconderfischy:, it's a really interesting idea. I wanted to try something a bit different. It's not entirely a throwback piece, as the character models are closer to how they should look than not, but I did want to do something with a simple cartoon style, because I thought it would fit the absurdity more.

Also, I've never drawn any of these Pokemon before. Heck, I still don't know how to say or write the name of the final evolution. I'm going to copypaste the name into the tags, thereby learning absolutely nothing.
So I decided to go through with this, even if it'll take me another day to get started as I still have some unfinished AB business. Up top, let me say this:

If you responded to the last thread, DO NOT comment here. I put you all on a list, please message me about what you would like.

If you DID NOT respond to the last thread for any reason (uncertainty, didn't notice, etc) and are interested, PLEASE LEAVE A REPLY so that I can add you to a list, IF there's any availability left.

So here are the rules in bullets:

  • This is my art trade, I have the right to refuse for any reason (that said I typically don't if it follows the guidelines)
  • Clean trades only. I don't draw nor want nsfw stuff.
  • I prefer to draw Pokemon, but it is open to non-humanoid creatures. This includes animals or Nintendo-y things like Kirby, as he's technically a non-humanoid creature. Best to prepare a Pokemon request back up just in case, however. Humanoid creatures include humans, gijinka or whatever you'd call Star Fox and that sort of style.
  • You'll get more mileage with simply designed characters than complicated ones. Compare something like a Goomba to your typical monsters from Monster Hunter. The former may be a little too easy, but I'm not doing the latter.
  • Art from me will be drawn within a range of usual styles you can probably find here, or on Aqua Bunny. That said I'm not drawing anything realistically, or with super-duper anatomical accuracy. I won't draw every muscle the body of whoever has. Streamlined, cartoony stuff is what I do.
  • Whether you request it or not, you may end up with something silly. ; P
  • As it has been done before in the past, if you want you can request my own characters if you want to see them in a different scenario or you just want more art of some of them. Things may be a bit more stringent, here, but I consider most fan art non canon anyway, so just ask if this interests you.

If that sounds good to you, have at it. It goes without saying the number of trades I can do is finite, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? Hope you like the idea of drawing some of the characters featured here... because that's all I'm going to ask for. Happy trading!

Howdy sir, I have a (possibly dumb) question for you: Your website aquabunny has a good number of comics on it. I've been reading around about the original comic known as Poke Island.

Now I might just be blind and missing it, but I haven't been able to track it down any where. Has it been lost to the ages?

EDIT: I imagine you're just gonna gloss over my comment, so... Thanks. That's really all I can say. Thanks for making such great art, of course, but I truly need to thank you for being such a huge inspiration for me.
p-debardelaben Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2017
Yes, I am him, and it's funny reading the other comment on Nidorina S., because at that point you kinda recognized it but didn't quite put it together yet. That moment of clarity, tho.

But anyway, you are most certainly welcome. ^_^
SwerveStar Featured By Owner Edited Feb 17, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
At that point, I had my suspicions, but I was like "Nah, there's no way it's him. =w=" I'm glad my hypothesis was wrong. ^^

Now I need to binge on your art and possibly whatever character/story lore stuff you had back on your old site.

Also maybe I should totally bring back my own Nido-centric fic in the Mystery Dungeon world? This'd be as good a reason as any.
p-debardelaben Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2017
Well, there's a whole wiki now, so it should cover a lot of ground, Aqua Bunny lore wise.

Finally, someone who also enjoys the Nidos as much as me. Good on ya!
p-debardelaben Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2017
"Finally", he says. I'm about as OG as it gets. ; D More like everyone else finally enjoys Nidos as much as I do, since like 1999. Haha, but I get ya.

Hey there Patrick, it's Potato Kirby. Remember those two emails I sent you over a year ago? Gee, it felt like I wrote them a few months ago. :P
Anyways, I just want to stop by and say I really admire your artwork, and always have since I've first discovered that "Sugar Rush" animation you made a while back. I also want to wish you a holly jolly merry Christmas, and a happy new year! I hope everything's going well for you, Patrick. Take care!
p-debardelaben Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2017
Thanks. Hope all was well for you, too.
