Hey guys! I'm working on a roleplaying Proboards called the Protea Region! It's a brand new Pokemon Region with some awesome mechanics added, such as Fusion and Cloning. There's even a whole new Legendary and new Fusion Pokemon!

For this piece I didn't really have color contraints. I just wanted to create something that looked good and gave the feel of a beach side town. The Protea Lab is located in Port Town, home to the main trading Port in the region.

Ah thank you for the feedback!

- What do you suggest I do to keep Mudkip's readability while also decreasing their size? I was trying to give it a bit of a cartoony effect, similar to how the overworld sprites in Pokemon can make Pokemon much larger than they are supposed to be. I can definitely experiment with removing the pixelated lines in the head ^-^

- What do you suggest I do to show the water and the beach without making a weird perspective? I was struggling immensely with that ^-^;;

- Haha, I love that xD He is actually a Gengar Pokemorph, Gym leader (he can turn into a Gengar and has some Ghost Pokemon abilities like levitation and the ability to pass through walls - Pokemorphs are an effect of the Legendary Pokemon's gift of Fusion), who uses Ghost Pokemon in spooky magic shows when he isn't running his Ghost-Type Gym! <3 His clothing represents how he is always dressed up and ready to perform <3

Oh, I miss the glory days of play-by-post Pokemon RPGs. This is a really cute piece, but there are some bits that are weird:

- Mudkip is one foot tall, officially - I know you have some leeway (and the official games are pretty lax when it comes to having all but the largest creatures take up one 16x16 box in the overworld), but either he's really big or the entire world is really tiny. I think part of the problem here is you've pixeled all the lines in his fins which forces you to make him overly large.
- The background is slanted at a really weird angle so that the coastline is visible - that cute little curve where the waves lap at the shore would make sense if we were looking at that from a birds' eye view, but we're not so it looks like the beach is at a 45 degree incline.

I do like this, though - cozy looking scene. Oh, and is Abraham Lincoln a Ghost-type trainer in this universe? Haha
