Steampunk Pokemon by Viergacht Steampunk Pokemon by Viergacht
The culmination of my fondest hopes and most fervent desire is to excel to the utmost of my abilities.

None who have gone before have ever matched my indomitable zeal and stoical fortitude in this test of mettle.

To capture them is the glorious victory which shall achieve the culmination of this, my highest purpose;

To instruct them in the gentlemanly sport of pugilism is my noblest expression of my dauntless perseverance.

The idea of mixing Pokemon with the earliest Victorian concept of dinosaurs is just utterly brilliant. ^^

lol that moment when you're such a dino-nerd you can tell they're based off the old megalosaurus and iguanodon :D Looks awesome!

This. This right here is amazing. In particular your victorian take on the opening. I just about lost my soda at that.

One must indeed, through supreme effort, capture the entirety of extant species.

.....holy crap, I had no idea that my heart was yearning for this. I am going through so much nostalgia just looking at this: I have dinosaur encyclopedias filled with early paleoart like this, and I simply love Pokemon.

My God.  My mind...

Oh yeah, I adore those ancient dinosaur reconstructions! They may not be accurate but they have an awful huge amount of charm :D

Charles R. Knight was my hero as a kid.  Had know idea who he was until I read an article of his work and recognized every single one of his illustrations.

He was a really incredibly accomplished artist. It was amazing to get to see his paintings up close at the museum of natural history in NY!

I have family in NY, so I went to the museum all the time growing up.  It's amazing how dynamic it feels having old and new representations there -- especially as new discoveries are made.

Plus it's so open and brightly lit, especially compared to the Smithsonian (which was the one I went to growing up).

We went to the AMNH for a museum typology study while I was in architecture school. Natural lighting was a huge plus! (as was so many other elements, as per Neo-Classical design :heart:)
