Saw Pokémon: Detective Pikachu last week, and I'm happy to report that it is really good and worth seeing. Took Hollywood this long to make a movie adaptation of a video game that was good.
In tribute I painted a head bust of the titular character. I wanted to go for something a bit impressionist so I had him framed in a spyglass surrounded by lightning and storm clouds. The cityscape behind him, along with his expression, were inspired by promotional material for the original game.
I'm really proud of how this turned out, I think it's my best so far!
