Gotta catch ‘em all! Coming at you, second day in a row with one of my favorite pieces that debuted at APE. POKEMON! If Sailor Moon was third grade obsession, then Pokemon was the 6th grade. I won’t lie, never knew how to play the card game, but the show and the Gameboi versions were my childhood. I hope my immense love for the series shines through in this piece.
It’s a bit of a colorful mess, which I don’t mind, so you really have to search through the image to pick out the little monsters. I put most of my favorites. I wanted to give the characters a more realistic but still stylized kind of look. Of course some are harder to stylize than others, some are inherently easy. I struggled with this piece before I got it here, and I have to say I’m really happy with how it came out. I did the background separately and it features some larger Pokemon in a rougher style. Most of them ended up getting covered up but you can sort of see them peeking out through the foreground characters. I love getting feedback and tumblr isn’t really built for that, so feel free to reply to the pic or if you reblog, leave a little message with it - I do love those :P
Can you pick out all of the pocket monsters?
