001. Bulbasaur.

I kind of half joked one day that I would draw every single Pokemon. Granted it may take several years, heck, it's probably a never ending project, but it would definitely be an interesting. On another note, I always, always drew cute happy things and I think I'm slowly growing out of that. After one or two sketches, this one quickly took on a life of its own.

I don't think I'll really try to draw them all, but I might as well start with the first - my favourite - Bulbasaur.

Awesome piece... the lighting is outstanding. I'm not entirely sure about the lens flare, but otherwise, sterling artwork.

It's facial expression is interesting - did you come up with it yourself, or is it based on one in Pokémon?

Thanks! Yeah I struggled a bit with the lens flare.. at the very least, it's better than the glob I originally started out with.. lol.

I didn't want it to look just like the normal character and went in a more darker direction. I wanted to see how it could possibly look if it was a little less cartoony, and this is what I ended up with after a few sketches.

It's cool! I wasn't bashing the piece, i just thought it might be something to work on in future images. Otherwise, it's a fabulous piece of work... really professional in nture, like the kind of illustration you'd see on toy packaging.

As for the darker twist, i think it came off really well... there's a more 'feral' look to a character which is usually quite cute.
