Day 15

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

His four fists dazzle his enemies with great strength and ferocity, carrying enough power to erupt a volcano! His kicks crackle like thunder and whip a frenzy like a roaring typhoon! His gaze is deep and penetrates the spines of cowardly no-gooders the world over! Enter…LED-Rider Ledian!

You’ll definitely want to see the behind the scenes write up and work in progress art of how my sentai-styled hero came to be…Click here!

This project builds upon the exploration of personal technical and philosophical concepts and visual styles under daily deadline to create quality works for personal and professional growth.

After the exhausting sessions spent painting Noctowl, I needed to really chill and get laidback with Ledyba. I used to tape episodes of Pokemon and I remember a whole tape dedicated to Johto. Ledyba was featured in one episode so I guess this creature stands out in my brain. A cute little Pokemon gets a cute little illustration today on One a Day!

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m a fan of owls and already knew from the get go that I would go realistic for Noctowl to juxtapose the cartoony illustration of Hoothoot. This guy took as long as Feraligatr to complete, and was a blast to work on. Style wise, it’s the first of this gen, while Feraligatr is more cartoony in nature with realistic detailing, this piece was meant to be approached with realism in form and function.

Day 12

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

You know how Pokemon names come from the fact that they say their name? I think Professors of the Pokemon world dun goofed when it comes to Hoothoot. Where’d they get their degrees from anyway? Instead, I propose a new name for this guy: Schmoopie. What does it mean? ‘Cute fat round little owl thing' in my own made up language of course.

Day 11

Reblog on Tumblr: bonnyjohn.tumblr.com/post/1085…

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

Today, we find the once squatty Sentret has emerged to be a skinny snake cat thing, as far as ferrets and Furrets go!  It’s sort of a strange evolution, but one way or another, I wanted to get a tad bit fancy and artsy for the illustration of the day utilizing fun patterns!

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.

Hey, I really like your pokemon one a day drawings. I'm actually doing the exact same thing myself for the past month or so. I'm up to nidoking now and have been posting them in batches. Sad to say, I've fallen quite a bit behind by skipping a few days here and there and losing some motivation. I'm going to need to pick up the pace if I want to finish them all in2-3 years! How did you keep up with them? And are you going to keep going to 719?
