while I started this endeavor in 2009, I was not regularly drawing them when generation 5 came out. that gave me a lot of time to get familiar with new pokemon before I started filling in from letter A.
with gen 6 less than two weeks away, I have decided to put the 150+ project on a 8 week hiatus, meaning the next pokemon will be posted on nov. 24, 2013.
there are a few reasons for this:
this doesn’t mean I won’t be drawing pokemon at all. my main art tumblr is where you’d find that: @barbalarga
thanks for understanding, and I’ll see you on the other side of gen 6.
thanks a lot I’m glad you like my silly drawings! as for the blurbs: I had been doing this project long before it had a tumblr, so I was posting a bunch to catch up, and reflecting on what I was thinking and the reaction it initially got. I was also drawing them intentionally realistic then, so there were more influences to include. I don’t have anything to reflect on when I post them currently, and I have less realism explaining to do. I feel like a lot I could say would be self evident (like the latest one, excadrill? it is like a mole and it is with a construction worker because drills. that’s boring)
plus, I’ve gotten asks trying to argue with me about what a Pokemon REALLY IS and I don’t want to encourage that nonsense.
but I will try to write more when it’s relevant!
