Really cool integration of gen 8. Well done on this 😁

I am curious, what made you pair the gen 3 starters with the gen 8 ones?

Originally I paired Mudkip and Sobble just because I'd seen people compare the two, and it fit the idea I had for the piece.

I wasn't sure if I was going to make similar pieces for the other two Galar starters. Once I decided I was going to I did give a bit of thought to who they'd be paired with. I considered a few different things:

Chimchar with Grookey, since they're both simians. But I decided against that because I wanted to keep the pairings focused on a single Type.

With Scorbunny I wanted Torchic from the get-go, since to me it was what best fit the race idea I had. I considered Tepig and Litten as well, but I didn't think they would look as good with the color scheme I had in mind.

Once I'd decided on Torchic for Scorbunny I thought it'd be weird not to use Treecko for the final piece, so I went with it. It fit the idea I had anyway, which was a plus.

Sorry for the long-winded reply. In short I guess they were the best fits for the ideas I had.

Don't be sorry for the long winded replies, I love them! I definately thought the pairing matched, which was why I was curious in the first place. Most might have picked the Gen 1 starters with the Gen 8's, as a sort of passing the torch along kind of thing, which was why I was surprised and really liked seeing the Gen 8 starters with the Gen 3 ones. Each picture was super fitting, and I enjoyed these interactions. You are a great artist!
