Corsola!  Pokemon One a Day, Series 2! by BonnyJohn
Corsola! Pokemon One a Day, Series 2!

Day 71 

Reblog on Tumblr: bonnyjohn.tumblr.com/post/1187…

(Remember, Pokemon One a Day updates daily on Tumblr and compiles for the week on the same weekend for DeviantART!)

Coral Pokemon

When I was in elementary school, I had a Lisa Frank folder. Some kids made fun of me for having a “girly” folder and that did upset me, but I was absolutely mesmerized by the colors and design. I sort of channeled that palette and approach for today’s illustration featuring Corsola. Let’s kick off the week with the coral pokermanz! 

The work in progress shots of this Corsola piece are a must see!  Take a look at them here with the rest of the write up here!  Holy crap, that sounds like a Buzzfeed article…Sorry about that hehe

Love and peace,

Bonny

Day 70

Pig Pokemon

Today’s feature is this tiny little cretin that I can’t decide is really cute and should be snuggled to be a football I should punt across a stadium. It’s the “pig” Pokemon, Swinub! As the creature is rather defined in a way that limits how I could reinterpret it for a full illustration, I went in a route that got to fill up the composition with a minor redesign and explore evolution in ways that we haven’t seen in Pokemon yet!

Want more of Swinub?  Of course you do!  Check out the rest of my write up with work in progress shots here! 

Love and peace,

Bonny

Lava Pokemon

Magcargo, the snail that’s hotter than the sun apparently...Yeah, Nintendo/GameFreak didn’t do their research and made this stupid thing so beyond OP when writing it’s flavor text xD

Outside of that, this guy’s got nothing else going on for him. How do you combat working on an illustration for a creature you feel uninspired for? By collaging, of course!

Day 67

(Remember, Pokemon One a Day updates daily on Tumblr and compiles for the week on the same weekend for DeviantART!)

Lava Pokemon

Today on One a Day is lava come to life; Slugma. As a concept, I guess it works…It’s a bit random and it’s design isn’t anything to write home about so I went in for the illustration knowing it wasn’t about making a connection to anything but playing up the style of the day.

Interests

I want to say that I will put my best foot forward and attempt to not miss a day, but I want this series to be less stressful so if I take a day off or two or whatever, don’t freak out.  I’m going to be actively seeking out jobs and putting myself and my work out there in hopes to get noticed of course, so if there are new breakthroughs in my day to day, those would take precedence.  


​That said, I will of course give it my all for each illustration in terms of quality.  I will again attempt to draw each new illustration in different art styles, and there will be plenty of new direction for exploration yet I can safely say that many styles of the already 152 illustrations I’ve done so far will probably come into play in new ways as well.  I can already see myself remixing popular styles for newer works.  

Rather than aspiring for 1 new style per day, (which of course I will attempt) I just want to make sure each new illustration is a fun and/or unique new depiction of everyone’s favorite pocket monsters. 

I also have a plea.  I’m so grateful for my following to have grown with each new illustration released in series 1.  What I’m doing is continually putting myself out there in the hopes that someone who can make moves can find my work and my passion and validate all it is I do.  I need you guys to help me with furthering my reach with this coming series and spread the work.  Reblog and share and help this become a success like you did the first time around…Except we can do better!  I know it!

​So that’s it, I think.  This upcoming series can be considered as both a standalone and expansion to the original.

Just came across your pokemon one-a-day series. They are absolutely awesome! Each one is so unique and I really like the different and bold styles. Would love to maybe see more one day.

Seriously, this is probably the best pokemon art albums that I have ever seen. I don't think I've ever had to favourite so many pieces from one artist before.
