Attempt at an ancient Chinese style painting, though it doesn't really look like one. Yes, it's the year of the Rat according to the Chinese calender, that means Rattata (and Raticate) get their share of limelight. A bit rusty at using Photoshop though...how I hate drawing leaves for backgrounds.

Paper texture composed partly from here.
