So, IT’S FINALLY DONE – I’ve painted all of the original 151 pokemon! (I’m embarrassed to say it’s taken around 3 years to complete) I’ll be putting all the nails together to take a photo of the whole collection, so stick around for that later in the week.
Even though Mewtwo and Mew do not directly evolve from one another, it felt right to paint them as a pair as Mewtwo was born from Mew.
So it’s not just me that found this guy totally unsettling right? I mean I don’t even have a phobia of dolls or clowns or anything like that, but his whole appearance is just really displeasing. I certainly wouldn’t want him in my party.
So unfortunately Drowzee was pretty boring to paint, when I looked at him and tried to draw any sketches nothing jumped at me – apart from his chocolate, custard flan colour combo so that’s what I painted. Hypno however, I’m super chuffed with, I was trying to catch the movement of his pendulum and I think I’ve achieved it. He’s a bit of a creepy pokemon actually, look him up if you don’t know what I’m talking about!
So I was trying to go for a different style with these again. With Abra, Kadabra and Alakazam being Psychic Pokemon I thought a purple background would be great, and because they’re all very telepathic and extrasensory beings I thought it would be cool to have them floating like spiritual entities or something. I don’t know if it worked? P.S (I seem to have forgotten the rest of Alakazam’s mustache whoops!)
