Had to register for the online rotation allocation service for my last year today, so now I can spend the next 6 weeks pointlessly staring at the 9 spots they offer at the department I’d love to go to for anesthesiology.
Some of the other shiny tweak explorations that happened
I ain’t complaining, as I said before I can get behind nearly every shiny out there. Most tweaks I’d make can be pretty minor, while others are pushing it to really play around with potentials more than anything.
I think my biggest issues with shiny designs repeatedly comes down to how flat some ended up looking haha
Garchomp - following the initial intention, but a bit more visible about it
Meganium - adjusting the contrast of its petals and antennae so it doesn’t look blanket covered under a single yellow overlay. Very minor change to make me like it a whole lot more
Espeon - how many lime green shinies do we need. Either soften that flat-as-all-heck green if its GOTTA be green, take a nod to its daytime evolving necessity, or take the pink to blue mew/ditto route considering its partnership with Umbreon
Volcarona - love it honestly, but again, apparently I also love contrast. Follow the initial orange to red with a yellow to orange, and give it more dark grey to play off. It was some sort of saviour/feared terror, right? Brighten that baby up to look the part!
Leafeon - Can’t go wrong with vibrancy, but I struggle to see a difference if I’m not looking at a shiny and non-shiny side by side! Anyway, why not take an autumn approach
Smeargle - I’m pretty fond of the bright vibrancy here too, but I can’t help think it would have been fun to make an arty-based pokemon nearly greyscale and really highlight its paint/mark-making theme with something close to neon
