I'm actually an art thief, I didn't draw this picture:

ZORUA by Jiayi

This was actually drawn by :iconreka-chan:, not me!

Some of you may have also noticed an overload of Zorua fanart in your inboxes on Friday. Some people also realized that none of the artists uploaded their own drawings, they were all switched with someone else's art.

Well, I have just this to say:




APRIL FOOLS'!




Haha, we got you guys. :D And yes, Zorua was chosen since it is the trickster Pokemon afterall. Surprisingly, some people caught on pretty fast!

Anyway, I want to thank all the lovely artists again who agreed to participate in this project. And to those who didn't, but kept it a secret- thank you as well!


Here's a list with the all the Zorua pictures submitted and their actual artists. If you haven't seen some of them, try to take a guess who drew it. :D

hahaha how did people not see through this? your style is so distinctive, and PK's, and ryushay's
as soon as I saw them all in my inbox I knew what was up.
I guess maybe this is just a sign that I've been around on dA way too long and gotten super familiar with your art.
anyway, good one. way better than dA's stupid trollface shenanigans |D
