Toothy Triggerfish by KayVeeDee Toothy Triggerfish by KayVeeDee
Now that Tammy has given me her blessing to upload Alola stuff, you might be seeing a wave of art from me that I did for my Tumblr these past few weeks!

unpopular opinion: I love Bruxish

Pokémon and Bruxish belong to Nintendo.

i love bruxish :D  i can't help it, i seem to have a thing for "ugly and / or useless" fish pokemon (i really like stunfisk, feebas and qwilfish, too) xD love the use of colors in your pic, and how you included some other pokemon...corsola is sweet, it looks like it's hiding from bruxish :D

What the hell, I thought this was in my faves already?? I'm working on a pkmn underwater scene and this came to mind. 
Anyway, this is beautiful! I love all the sea-mons you've packed into this, especially that happy little Corsola :') I'm not sure if I'm completely sold on Bruxish, but I do love their color scheme!!

I JUST SAW THIS HAHA SORRYY
thank you so much! Water types are so much fun to draw, even if my heart belongs to the grassies out there. It's so calming to think about how the water affects colors and shadows and lighting. It behaves so differently from air and It's a fun challenge!
(Bruxish is way weird but I still like it xD)

Thank you so much! I'm a big fan of the 'ugly fish' Pokemon too - Remoraid is one I love, even if its evolution into Octillery disturbs the very fiber of my biologically-minded being (fish and octopi aren't even in the same Phylum! C'mon Nintendo) 
But thank you! I loved working on this, and I do think this is my favorite picture of the things I've done lately~ 
Corsola is so cute, I had to add one!

agree, remoraid is very cute... and even though i like real octopi, i really dislike octillery ^^ at first i thought they were two non-evolving pokemon...i mean, a fish evolving into an octopus really is weird ^^ oh well, we better not try to question video game logic xD

Right? RIGHT?? Someone else who understands how weird that is! But all things considered, I do love Octillery. Perhaps not as an evolution of remoraid, but as a cute little octopus nonetheless~
yeah haha, we can't worry about what we can't change

i was actually _that_ close to giving octillery a chance for being used in online battles... but i just couldn't xD i mean, i'm not a pro when it comes to online battles anyway, so i prefer spending my time on breeding and training pokemon i really like instead of the "looks like crap, but maybe it'll be useful"-ones xD but of course there're other pokemon i refuse to use as well, so it's not like octillery is my only no-go ^^

Mannnn this is a real joy to look at, so much going on but its executed nicely and every component is working together harmoniously despite all the colours and shapes. I always really appreciate your use of blending unusual colours together, and that talent is really shown here, but in a nice subtle way. I'm actually working on a coral piece myself atm, I'll definitely be using this for inspiration.
That fish still ugly tho

Thanks ches! I really do love this piece, it's one of my favorite pieces I've done in a long time~ It was super therapeutic to work on. I love the colors of reefs. Underwater scenes are always my favorites :'D
Also oooh, I'm looking forward to seeing it, and I'm honored you would treat this as an inspiration! 
it's trying its best

Hehe, I did a lot of research on reef fish while drawing this! I modeled bruxish mostly after the frog fish here, since frog fish look a lot like coral and are known for camouflaging into the reef.

Omg these things are weird and creepy but I love them anyway. I know they are based off triggerfish but I see them as frogfish because it makes then 10000% more amusing to me!
Also thank you dearie~

I also kinda love them? In an amused what-the-heck-is-this kindof "I could actually see this being real" sort of... way. :"D

Yeah omg, same. I think the fact that they look so weird and colorful and bizarre is exactly what sold me though. There are some weird things living in the ocean!
