*crawls into bed in the fetal position and contemplates what drove me to finish this beast of a drawing*
Dear God, did I misjudge how long this thing would take. I actually starting doing the preliminary sketch back in JUNE
, and with school and everyday life in the way, I still can't believe I managed to get this out before Christmas. Hallelujah.
Nearly a quarter of this project was spent choosing which characters should be included, and in what order. So please don't feel bad if I missed your favorite character (really, did I miss anyone significantly important?). The hardest, and most enjoyable part was doing the Brocklings. I love their unique designs.
Anyway, with XY looking very promising, I figured this piece would be a nice tribute to the anime's old stomping grounds. Granted, the first season isn't even my favorite -go Hoenn!- but it still has special place in my heart for setting the path for 15+ years. I know some genwunners will take this as a bashing of future generations, so I implore
you, please don't go there. Each season has its own set of flaws, and I happen to like all of them in one way or another.
So I gotta ask...who is your favorite character of the day (COTD), or what was your favorite season 1 episode? Pokémon, getto daze!
