Finally another Pokemon. I was going for a pretty minimalist style with this one. I really like Wartortle - he is probably one of the best mid stage evolutions ^_^

Squirtle was the starter I chose on my second play through - the one where I ended up catching all 151. I have a soft spot for him and his cute turtle face.

One of the most nostalgic badasses out there <3 I liked the style I had going with Charmeleon so I carried it through to Charizard here. I may go back and do a Charmander in this style. I put up a print of Charmeleon and will be posting one of Charizard shortly.

This doesn’t look like a Pokemon! Well, I actually started work on this before I started the PokeChallenge to try and get a feel for designing posters.
Sailor Moon was my introduction to anime and my childhood hero. I am very much looking forward to the new series! Hopefully it is coming for real this time.

Made it to number 5! Charmeleon. That awkward teenage stage where it is no longer quite as cute as Charmander or quite as cool as Charizard. I remember particularly disliking how Charmeleon looked from behind in Red.
I switched styles quite a bit for this one. It kind of came from Charmeleon being so much harder for me to draw than the others have been so far. I might expand on this style for Charizard, but we will see how that one goes.

I choose you! Charmander <3
Charmander was my first starter. I gave it the nickname Ann. I still remember vividly my first few hours with Pokemon - that first adventure into the tall grass with my Ann and how much aww it brought me. Pokemon was probably the first time I was truly wowed by a video game. And that memory of starting my first adventure will always stay with me.

This Venusaur will trap you lure you in with its bedroom eyes and trap you with Stun Spore…though that makes it sound kind of creepy. Venusaur is normally drawn kind of gross - but I wanted to go for something a little cooler. I’m really happy with how this turned out though - it is one of my more successful coloring jobs using Photoshop.

Time for the next one! Ivysaur. This Pokemon stays pretty cute in this evolution. I’ve always liked using Ivysaur and it’s various stat inducing powders. Back in the day, when I basically had no idea how to properly pay the game, I used my level 100 Ivysaur (that had evolved from my level 234 Bulbasaur) to cause all my enemies to fall asleep.

I have decided to embark on a journey. A Journey that I believe has been tried before by others, but that will, at the same time, be unique for me. I want to draw Pokemon, all the Pokemon, in Pokedex order.
The basic idea is that I want to work my way through the Pokedex until I reach the end or it stops being fun. I will only be drawing Pokemon that have unique Pokedex entries (So no mega evolutions (probably)) but that is really it. I want to have fun, and I want to challenge myself. So let’s see how far I can get. I don’t have a set schedule for when I will be posting - I am anticipating some of these to take much longer than others.
So I post this with the first Pokemon - Bulbasaur. I do love Bulbasaur, though he was not my first starter. He was actually one of the Pokemon that showed up for me when I did the Missingno cheat. I think they showed up as level 234 or something crazy like that, and if you leveled it up again it would level down to level 100 and try and evolve.

An exploding Platypus riding a rainbow. Why am I the first one to bring this imagery together?
