Venusaur by nicholaskole Venusaur by nicholaskole
Here we go! Fist starter set done! I loved this guy...not quite as much as Bulbasaur, but he was my main pokebuddy all throughout my first playthrough. Mmm...good times. Razorleaf forever.
I had alot of fun drawing him...his big grumpy face :)
Onwards!

AAAaah, you did a color gradient with watercolors! Nice. The couple times I've dabbled in watercolor and attempted that, it ended up looking like I spilled diseased coffee or something, haha. ;)

lol. well...yeah...so...photoshop is good at gradients. >.> <.<
I do the watercolor paintings in a single tone, and then add/play with the color in photoshop, which is how I get the gradients :p
I KNOW. I'M A FRAUD.

I hope it's okay, but I featured this piece in my latest journal (you can check it out here: [link]) I love your latest experimental style and was amazed to just now see that you used ball point pens and watercolor to actually create this first before taking it digital? Simply amazing. I hope you will continue to experiment with this style. It has been extremely inspiring to me and I thank you for sharing it with us on Deviant art!

I really love how pokemon look so simple in the game then one person can draw them so differently and it makes you look at pokemon in an antirely different way...
In other words, this is awesome.

Good times with Pokémon :D Bulbasaur was always my favorite starter for Kanto <3

What did you use to color him? It looks fantastic!!

hehe- I used a combo on watercolor and photoshop- but most of the color came in with the photoshop phase!
Glad you like him!
