A World Of Dreams And Adventures Awaits by jbwarner86 A World Of Dreams And Adventures Awaits by jbwarner86
Pokémon is always going to be one of my favorite things ever :) This group shot of Misty, Ash, Brock, and all their teammates is my attempt to mimic Ken Sugimori's coloring style from the early early days. I don't have any actual watercolor brushes, but I still think this looks pretty cool.

Really cool, this brings my nostalgia back. Also great work on trying to replicate Ken Sugimori's style, I'm a big fan too :)

I'd say you pulled it off very well, Jesse. It looks very reminiscent of Sugimori's old watercolor style.

Another show I grew up watching in my youth. Though here's the funny thing, while I still like Pokémon, I'm probably going to love Digimon a little bit more. Pokémon is usually the same story every other region, an immortal 10-year old named Ash goes across the world getting badges and usually has two or more traveling companions as he goes to different gyms. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. Where as Digimon did manage to change the structure every couple of seasons and had a few more memorable moments for me.

How did you ever feel about Digimon and its seasons?

I only ever watched the first season of Digimon, and even then, not religiously or anything - it was very tough to keep up with it because it shared a timeslot with Pokémon, and I obviously couldn't watch Fox Kids and Kids' WB at the same time every week. So it was a constant struggle, and ultimately, Pokémon won, by virtue of not being quite as dark as Digimon often got. I like my adventures a little more fun :)

Awesome work how you tried to go retro like this! As Pokémon approaches its 20th anniversary in the U.S., the timing for this couldn’t be any more appropriate.

I kinda miss the days when I was into Pokemon, before I got out of it and thus lost track of where the series has gone since then.

Also, I could tell just from the thumbnail that you were attempting to mimic Ken Sugimori's early work in terms of the coloring, so I can definitely say you've done an excellent job at it.

Sugimori's artwork was the first thing I thought of with the wavy colors in the background so good job on that.
