Hey, I know the following were made more than a year ago, but I was just curious about whether or not you intended to color those "Rejected Pokemon Ideas" from Backseat Drawing. They were actually pretty cute. Loving the artwork as always!
TsaoShin Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
Oh thank you! I don't have the files for them any more so probably not but I'm super happy you like those XD
IntegerMova Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student Digital Artist
Oh man, that's okay.

I'd look forward to another episode featuring some more of those cuties when you get the chance, although that's more of a suggestion than a request. My favorites were either Bytheslice-io and Deep Scoops (that one could've worked under the name Sugar Daddy or Sugar Papa just for pun, though).
