Blog #029 - Squirtle, Squirtle!

Day #075 of my year in design, I did Squirtle since I've been playing Pokemon white a hell of a lot the last couple of days. Could have done one of the new Pokemon but I have fond memories of Squirtle. My first Pokemon all those years ago in Pokemon Blue. 
 
I have also been playing a lot of Dragon Age 2 still. There's a lot of interesting things in there, especially the qunari. If you take the time to get to know them and talk to them you can already see where the story is going to go right at the beginning of the game. It could be seen as careless, but I like the fact that the seeds for the later storyline is in there. 
 
Anyway, here is the illustration:  View High Res

Squirtle, Squirtle!

i like that. it's a good drawing, illustration of squirtle. i would suggest you put some shades on him. he looks kind of flat on the arms and legs, head. also make one with sunglasses. good time watching pokemon when i was younger. there was a gang of squirtles and they had sunglasses on.

@iam3green: Thanks. The shading I do, or not, is intentionally flat. I'm experimenting with shapes and gradients each day but my 'style' is very flat. Also, I am very anti-shades squirtle.

 I like it so much!  It hits me right in the nostalgia bone.
If you make a wallpaper version, I will add this to my wallpaper rotation.    Would love to see your take on the original three.

@billnyethesciencepie: Hell yeah. I always raise a magikarp in every game. Except the new one.

@AlwaysBeClothing: I might do the other 2 this week and then package them together in to a wallpaper for you.
