31 Days of Pokemon - December 2013

MUCH larger version here.

Created for a Tumblr marathon known as POKEDDEXY. The point was to draw each of your favorite Pokemon of each type, and then some as you'll see down the line. I didn't actually finish it until January, 2014, due to a late start, other obligations, and the fact that a portion of the art actually has some thought in it rather than really fast doodles. Well, of course I was gonna want to use them later, might as well make them at least half-presentable. This picture was created in the style of Pop'n Music/Rhythmic Pop'n.

Patterns from webtreats ETC. Also, inspired by an official piece of PNM promo art, so there's some similarities.

I'm still taken aback by the fact that there's Pokemon beyond Generation III in this picture. Gosh, who'da thunk it? There's also a bit of cosplay for those of you who also revel in obscure Japanese fun n' games, and just for kicks, two extras decided to... Pop'n... for a cameo (who won't be pictured otherwise). :D Not ashamed of that, nope.

December 29th - Sigilyph

I think this one called for scariest. TBH I don't really think any of them are scary except maybe Beedrill for practical reasons, but I'll compromise with "unsettling". When I first saw this thing pop up in Pokemon Y, I literally said to myself "what the hell is that thing~" in a low, uncertain tone.

If MissingNo had a physical form, it'd look like Sigilyph, perhaps crossed with Claydol and Deoxys, which were Pokemon I used to consider weird back then. And that's on top of looking like Double from Skullgirls to begin with. Needless to say, I caught one, and now I'm rather attached to it having gotten past the fact that it just shouldn't be.

Sigilyph was going to appear in a comic that's been canned, but maybe I'll still use him elsewhere. Currently, he is inspired by the Pokemon of the same name in my copy of Pokemon Y.
