Today’s art is that of Ivysaur! When it came to Bulbasaur, I went with my gut instinct and drew out a minimalistic and cute approach for the starter. In my eyes, I see Ivysaur and all stage one evos for that matter, as “teenagers”. They’re in that awkward phase, ya know? This is the middle phase that leaves traces of their youth, but also gives insight to the aesthetic changes their maturity will bring them.
I decided to give Ivysaur a sassy expression and pose. As I said, I had this image of a teenager acting about. To make the illustration stand out, I played with various designs for the leaves emerging from the budding flower, in addition to the various uniform marks on his body. Thanks for looking, hope you enjoyed! See you tomorrow! -Bonny
+ Pokemon One a Day is an art series started by Bonny John in an effort to explore new, interesting, and unique methods of rendering the entire catalogue of Pokemon. The idea is simple - to come up with interesting and distinctive attempts at representing and recreating the pocket monsters we all known and love, one day at a time.
