PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE

Boy am I happy to have this monstrosity complete. I came up with this composition as a thumbnail during the work on Way Past Cool . This thing just took forever and ever.

I wanted to complete a poster for Pokemon reflecting the impact it had on my childhood and in turn, my life. I even had my mom dig through photos of me as a kid and scan them so I could use them as reference. These arent necessarily the team i used back in the day, though they are some of the coolest ones from generation 1. For all the joy and time killed that the Pokemon franchise has given me, this is the best I can do. Ill probably be playing your games for another ten years to come.

Easter Eggs:
Ho-oh
Mew
Lapras
Parasect
Dugtrio Cliff

(Looks on site) hmm... I can't seem to find it on here. (If it ever was) is it still available? (Honestly, there's a long spot on my wall where this'd look great on, along with another few pieces I'm trying to get my hands on...)

*Cue Jurassic Park theme*

Hmm...I've found all of the Easter Eggs but Dugtrio...I see something that MIGHT be it, but it's somewhat obscured by the grass.

My god this is...amazing!
I love the realistic style for the Pokemon, and how they are unique, but not to far from the original game.
And the Charizard is beautiful!
