Finished Winter 2016, Manga Studio EX 5 & Photoshop.

From top to bottom, left to right: Weezing, Charizard, Blastoise, Jigglypuff, Pikachu, Venusaur, and Magicarp.

Why did I draw Pokemon? I don't know! I'm not a huge, avid fan and the only main Pokemon game I've played was the first generation. This image just appeared in my head and I was compelled to work on it to make it a reality.

I wanted to try a unique style to really put my own stamp on these iconic characters and experiment with some painting techniques, but in the end I didn't really know what I was doing so they mostly wound up looking like the usual Pokemon.

Mostly made with Manga Studio EX 5 and a few tweaks in Photoshop.
