I made this picture for the Kelly's Journey
chapter preview banners dA likes you to upload when you upload stories. Obviously the banner version is modified, but this is the full image (with a different background).
This is actually the second version of the image - I chose to put this one in my main gallery because it contains several details (Sparkle's bows and Kelly's choker) that they always have. They don't have them for the first couple of KJ episodes, so the first version reflects that.
I actually REALLY like how this came out, save for Sparkle (but that's because my inability to draw Pikachu - I'm working at it though). I'm quite glad this came out a lot better than the last picture I drew of Kelly
. I think she looks a lot cuter in this one. Probably because of her big eyes.
8D I'm also quite happy she has what I call the "Squirtle Smile" going on.
I call it that because the smile reminds me of Squirtle. Some of the characters do it, especially Ash.
Comparing this to my previous KJ preview pictures, MAN, I improved.
