Update III 02.04.2017
The Project and all 100 Pokemon are open now for new faces on Game-Art-HQ, lets see how many of them will participate!
If you know artists that like to draw Pokemon, please share the word about the project and point them to:
Pokemon Gen II Tribute! (34/100) Last Chance!
Less than 40 of the 200 Pokemon Gen II Tribute slots are left, only Game-Art-HQ Contributors can claim these. If you never participate din a GA-HQ Art Collaboration, you can not participate in this project anymore.
The project is organized via now
Over 30 new artists are on board, all around 70 remaining Pokemon Gen II Slots will only be available to artist that participated in GA-HQ Collaborations already from tomorrow on. So if you never participated in a Game-Art-HQ Art collaboration and want to get on board, today is your last chance!
Last year we started our Pokemon Gen I Tribute which resulted in over 300 illustrations of the 151 classic Pokemon and used them to describe the Pokemon as well as their abilities and a ton of background info of the whole Pokemon series and how it started back in 1996. *
This year it is all about continuing this big Art Jam with the 100 Generation II Pokemon from Pokemon
Update II - 24.03.2017
50 of the currently 84/100 Gen II Pokemon are submitted now!
84 of the artists that participated last year in the Pokemon Tribute or in other GA-HQ Collaborations joined this project which is awesome!
Let's see how many new faces will join next month and how many Pokemon will remain for you to claim in May or June
Update I - 06.03.2017
Its almost a week since the Gen II was started and it set new records for the Game-Art-HQ Community! Over 50 spots were taken within 24 hours already and the first 17 of the 100 Pokemon were drawn already as well.
For the first time you can also directly see the progress of this art collaboration via the dA journal,exclusively for the contributor group.
Last time I started working on the main gallery in July, this time I am going to start in April already after working on the galleries for the last Link's Blacklist round this month. This time I also have the help of at least two group members, and from the start and it looks like a few more of you might join as writers for the descriptions of the Pokemon and their moves!
Original Journal (01.03)
Exclusively for you, the Game-Art-HQ Contributors who participated last year in our first Pokemon tribute or on any other GA-HQ Art Collaborations before!
Like last year, it is again all about illustrating a Pokemon using one of its moves or abilities. The moves don't have to be from Gen II, older and newer ones are completely okay.
Like last year² it is enough to draw the Pokemon without a background, and by using a .png file for transparency.
Like last year³ the Tribute will be published on christmas as one of the nicest gifts this year has to offer the Pokemon Community, and I am sure it will take at least a half year until all 100 Pokemon from Generation II are drawn twice by our community.
For the case you did not see our Pokemon Tribute last year, there you go: www.game-art-hq.com/98200/we-a…
For the whole March, only artists that participated in GA-HQ Collaborations before can claim a Pokemon.
Every artist has only one spot in March, and every Pokemon can be claimed only one time to make it fair for newcomers when the project opens for everyone in April.
The number of spots per artist will be raised to 2 in May and to 3 in June if all 100 Gen II Pokemon were claimed AND submitted until May 31.
I try to make it fair for everyone with these rules.
Please do me one little favour and mention it in the description of your submitted Pokemon that the Project will be available for everyone at in April and also that the Gen I Tribute by the Game-Art-HQ community can be seen at www.game-art-hq.com/98200/we-a…
More eyes on our works can't hurt to make it more popular!
That's basically everything you need to know about the project, oh yes, the deadline is again 1 Month from the day on you claimed one of the Pokemon, now choose your Pokemon!
Currently taken are 086 out of the 100 currently available spots (07.04)
