03/31/16: New Artwork

If you're using Modern style, you'll notice it has a new banner featuring the site mascots, drawn by yours truly. Almost everything on this site is created by me, and over the years, I've rolled out my own guestbook, my own polls - ditching the outside art was only a matter of time, and now that I've been drawing every day for three months, I finally felt confident enough to start replacing all the images on the site with my own art. I've started with the Modern style banner and the poll images on the front page, but I expect to get to work on the remaining images on the site (and the other styles) soon.

To be perfectly honest, I was not awake the day I read this and it completely fooled me.

I am still happily angry at that.

Okay, I guess last year I was a bit late with it and didn't put it up until the morning. ~_~

They aren't always dated the 31st! Last year's was on the first I checked!

All my April Fools' Day updates are dated March 31st! I always date updates on the day that it was when I woke up that morning, even when they're made after midnight. This is very useful on April Fools' Day.

(You may say this is cheating. I say look at the last modified date on the front page.)

I can't wait for the hand-drawn screenshots in the movie reviews.

If this isn't a joke, I have no idea how you would do Spectrum Style. O_o

Heh, the way you drew the grooves in Dialga's face plate and positioned the eyes gives Quentin this great "I'm too old for this shit" expression while Charizard's over there all ":D". Looks nice! You've definitely improved a lot in three months (dear lord has it been that long already?).

But then I'm faced with… okay, so it's the first, and we haven't heard anything Daybreak & etc., so this is probably the April Fool's joke, right? But on the other hand, replacing all the art on the site with your own stuff sounds like something you would totally do? And probably wouldn't actually be that onerous? I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of the site, but aside from the banners I don't think there are all that many things you'd need to draw? I mean, most of the images are dynamically generated or ones that it wouldn't make sense to replace with art (e.g. movie screenshots). PLUS this was actually posted on the 31st according to the header, so perhaps it's not supposed to be a joke? Or the joke is it's not a joke and there's more to come? DAMMIT BUTTERFREE GET OUT OF MY HEAD.

OK, this time I pretty much immediately remembered the date… But I honestly think I like this style more than the actual Modern style! The pencil drawings remind me of the various artists in the Pokemon anime, especially Sammy. Fitting, since you've done a ton of research into the older games… Anyway, I hope you're going to keep it around as an option, even if it's not the default.
