Tangela is a grass type Pokemon.  The drawing of Tangela is very friendly and cute, but I believe Tangela would be a much scarier looking creature if found in the wild.  His hair is ratted, and his feet are only red because they are dyed with blood from walking around on rocks and sticks.

I once again decided to do a real Pokemon chop.  This chop is of Mankey, a monkey inspired fighting pokemon.


My depiction is much closer to a real monkey, but the only piece of a monkey that I used was the face.  I started this chop with a basic sketch, and then filled it with teddy bear fur and monkey skin textures.  Click on the image to make it much larger.

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a pokemon photoshop (or just a photoshop in general).  But I decided to get back into it with my wife’s suggestion of doing the beloved Jigglypuff.

My wife said that she had always imagined Jigglypuff to be furry, but had not yet seen an artists furry rendition of the singing puffball.  Here I show what it might be like to find a wild Jigglypuff sleeping in the shade of a hot day.  Image

I like to imagine that Jigglypuffs, like fancy schmancy dogs, are hairy creatures, but shaved and beautified and put on display, so trainers can show off to the world what a gentle and lovely creature they have raised.


Rapidash Demonstration


How I made Rapidash (about 6 minutes)



So this week is the fire-horse, Rapidash.  Here’s the original


I didn’t change the concept much, but rather just tried to make it visually stunning-


Make sure you click the picture to make it bigger.  Video demonstration soon to come!


Zapdos Demonstration


Some of the initial cutting out of objects was done prior to recording, to spare you of those tedious details and to shave down video length. Enjoy!



So this weeks’ latest project was Zapdos, the legendary electric bird.  Here is the original concept-



As usual, mine was slightly different.  



Hope you enjoy it.  Please leave comments below, and if you have any requests, pokemon or not, just let me know.  I’d be obliged.  

Video demonstration is on its way.
