My entry for the It's Evolving II weekly challenge!

I decided to make a fakemon line based on my username, but with different methods of propelling pigs to flight! I had a lot of fun making this, and learned some good techniques, too!

Fitting an entire trebuchet and a pig into a 56x56 canvas was simply not going to happen, stylization or not, but rest assured that Tuskbuchet's comfy stretch-knit sling is attached to a trebuchet just offcamera. It's stretch-knit because I needed to use texture to distinguish the metal from the cloth, and comfort is important when you're getting ready to be flung over a wall to break a seige.

No pigs were harmed in the making of this contest entry. These are all professional stunt pigs who passed a health check and cleared their flight plans with the FAA before I drew them.

Thank you! They were really fun to make.

Thankies! The icons are just thematic to their modes of transportation; I doodled the leaf while trying to decide on border decoration and liked it, so I gave the other two little icons. But now that you mention it, [Flying], [Flying][Fire], and [Flying][Rock] would be pretty fitting for them, just not a traditional type progression.

Paging r/TrebuchetMemes...

I do like these guys, and the patterning on Tuskbuchet is very cool. Are the icons supposed to their names supposed to represent their typing?

what a joy to see these come to fruition! effective use of AA and patterning here, exceptionally well done on Tuskbuchet.

Thankies! :D

I also wish I could have fit a whole trebuchet. I wanted to fit a more realistic cannon and especially cannon frame into Hamunition's, too. Maybe someone with more skill in perspective than I could manage it with a more adventurous camera angle.

It was pretty cool seeing the progression of this one. While I would like to see the entirety of the trebuchet in the Tuskbuchet, it's not bad.

Nice! I would love to see the Tuskbuchet in action, haha!

Do watch out, there are quite a few duplicate colors in here!!
