Pokemon dump 2012 by ShadeofShinon Pokemon dump 2012 by ShadeofShinon
:bulletgreen: Edit; These paintings are all for sale! Check out the info here: [link] :bulletgreen:

Huge dump ahead!

I did a similar challenge back in 2011 and since it was so fun I decided to do it again. This time I did only 24 pictures since it was an advent calendar (and in Finland advent is 24 days long). I did have the 25th on my list but I forgot about it and when I remembered it, I didn't feel festive anymore so I just ignored it.
But the theme is the same, favourites from each type and such. I modified the list a little so it might be hard to tell which Pokemon is for which theme.
Also, I wanted to avoid drawing dupes so I made a rule that I can't draw any Pokemon I did last time. Technique is the same, simple watercolour paintings.
I posted these all individually on Tumblr and included some explanations and such but I'm too lazy to copy-paste them here.

Well, I hope you like them!

Here's the dump from 2011:

on which animal is lugia based?

Not on a single animal. I base mine very loosely on some cetacea family members and plesiosauria/placodont family. But very loosely, i think Lugia is a very distinctive species on its own and one of those Pokemon that can't be pointed at like "that's definitely a flying squirrel".

The fact that these were done in watercolor paint is what ultimately landed it in my favorites. No questions asked. The drawings themselves are also fantastic. My favorites were Dunsparce & Hahakomori (I never memorized many of the English names from that generation).

Some of the pokemon on here would be terrifying to be around. But they are all awesome, especially that aerodactyl

Holy shit, that Leavanny...! O_O

I love all of these depictions, especially since I've picked up my old Crystal version and am playing through right now with Houndoom, Kingdra, and Aerodactyl on my team. Gotta go bear up Clair soon so that I can take on the E4. :)

My friend lent me her SP so that I could breed/trade with my completed Silver file. So I made sure to get Houndoom, Aerodactyl, Kingdra and Scizor on my team since they're my favorite Johto and fossil Pokémon. :)

I have to give her SP back at the end of the week, so I should probably make more trades before then. My goal is Charizard, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Mewtwo from Red version, then Meganium, Typhlosion, Ninetales, Alakazam and Steelix from Gold and Silver. I plan to make a better team for Kanto after the E4.

Ah, that explains it. I never had a chance to trade Pokemon back then so it was always the same Pokemon I could get
But that sounds like a sweet team. I absolutely love Typhlosion, Ninetales, Alakazam and Steelix. Good luck with building your team!

I've said it before and I'll say it again I love the way you draw Pokemon my favourite of these drawings has to be the Torterra, it is amazing. Your Chandelure or Lampent isn't my favourite but i suppose it is difficult to draw a realistic looking ghost.

I tried something with Chandelure, it didn't really come out as I would've wanted but oh well. I wanted it to look like a gothic chandelier on fire, making the chandelier part completely black to highlight the flames.

I'm a bit lost for words. These are really a sight to behold, some beautiful realistic interpretations of Pokemon. They all fit them really well, although I did find Chandelure's design a little odd - but it works well, though. I also have to give special note to Froslass - you captured the rather possessive anger of the yuki-onna very well - Excadrill, Kingdra and the awesome Crobat up the top.

Thank you very much! I made Chandelure look like a silhouette so that it wouldn't be too messy and that the falmes would seem more clear, if that makes sense.
I'm glad to hear you like them, though. :>
