:Year of the Rat: Rattata by endless-whispers :Year of the Rat: Rattata by endless-whispers
Attempt at an ancient Chinese style painting, though it doesn't really look like one. Yes, it's the year of the Rat according to the Chinese calender, that means Rattata (and Raticate) get their share of limelight. A bit rusty at using Photoshop though...how I hate drawing leaves for backgrounds.

Paper texture composed partly from here.

I used to be an avid card faker myself, and that's why my pics here are actually meant for my own fake cards. However, I don't really mind people borrowing my art as long as ask me beforehand :)
