I Will Travel Across the Land... by ToonYoungster I Will Travel Across the Land... by ToonYoungster
*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. Yeah 

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?

It definitely had its ups and downs (Charizard being a douche the biggest one), but this was a case of First Installment Wins by a longshot!

The first season in a nutshell! Excellent work!

I agree about liking each region in one way or another.
Nice picture :)

This is a great way to cover the Kanto region moments.  I would argue volcano fight but blane in disguise will do and overall you achieve the goal of what you wanted to present.

o the nostalgia. Im not too keen on the overly chibi style here but the sntiment is still great and it still looks well put together.

Holy... This is amazing! It really brings back memories. I love it.
COTD? Um... I liked Duplica. I don't know, there are so many!
Favorite season one episode... Pikachu's Goodbye, it was so emotional! But once again, there are so many good ones.
