PKMNA - Face Your Fears by TamarinFrog PKMNA - Face Your Fears by TamarinFrog
Jill: I do admire Professor Deuxchamps but  I have to admit this survival assignment made me doubt her methods. She wanted us to face our biggest fears. And in my case... *gulp* that is snake pokemon. After mustering my courage, I went to the forest and found a large arbok! Normally I would run away immediately but this time I forced myself to stay in put and I stared the death in its eyes. To my surprise, the arbok didn't attack immediately. Like it was intimated that I stared it back and didn't run. We stared at each other a time that felt like an eternity. Finally, the arbok grew restless and tried to attack. That is when my fear took over and I had to use one of my smoke balls to get away.

I am happy that I managed to win my fear and stay there and stare down the arbok. I am disappointed tho that I lacked the courage to fight it... Maybe someday..."
 

Assignment for Armonia! I really liked this one because I have always wanted to do something related to Jill's irrational fear of snakes. She has gotten a bit more braver around them now but she is no way cured of her fear.

Wow, look at the size of that thing! Heck, even a tiny one is nightmare fuel.

PS: The main picture is incredible, but I think I like "NOPE" doodle at the end better for some reason :XD:

I don't blame her--and I don't think a fear of snakes is irrational. But then again, I am terrified of snakes.... :scared: revamp
Awesome job, by the way! :)

I guess if I were a snake I'd think twice about attacking a patrat. They're slightly meerkat-like, so I'd be wary of a possible streak of mongoose-like viciousness. Though there's probably plenty of squirrel-like deliciousness mixed in too, hence its attacking. Nice going with that arbok, you've made it look like quite the vicious beast.

"Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?"

I seriously cannot look at a snake without immediately thinking of Indiana Jones. And now I am trying to imagine Jill wearing a fedora hat...

That Arbok looks so epic. And Jill managed to stare it down? Good for her. She didn't fight it, but one day.

It's not too irrational of a fear, snakes do eat rodents in real life so I'm sure Arbok tend to enjoy Patrat and Watchog who aren't careful, I mean think about it, it's probably why they are always on the lookout and so focused ^^

I'm really enjoying the lighting and gradients in this... Also, it looks like you made a copy of the lineart and blurred it, am I right? I've always felt that gives drawings an interesting look. =)

Yep, I coppied the whole thing on one layer and then used gaussian blur in it. Then I lowered the opacity of that layer until it looked nice.

She's also a rat pokemon.  Snakes do eat rats. X3;;  So maybe not so irrational.  Still, good job for facing your fears, Jill!
