This is my first pokemon that I have done a sideways etch a sketch for. It was difficult, but a good learning experience. I added my own personal touch with the way I designed the aura sphere. I used a new shading technique where his blue tones would be, and I had to get kind of creative with how I would separate the different areas where his fur is black. I decided to make his face a pure black, and then accentuate the rest of his far with the shadows from the aura sphere.
Took roughly an hour and a half.
