Cottonweed Pokemon

What's up gang? Here we continue this line of dumb planty things! Hoppip becomes the dumbyhead known as Skiploom!

I really had no idea what to do or how to portray Skiploom. There's not a lot to be inspired by, and it's a simple design that I couldn't imagine in other unique styles. Thus, it was time to look into Gen 1 and see if I could remix anything.

I saw that my Bellsprout was done in a painterly style with canvas texture so I recreated that in a simpler way here. The potted element was brought back as well for a cutesy comical effect too!

I really don't got anything else to say for this guy...This was a simple piece to do that took more brainstorming than executing. I just want this line to be over T.T

Thanks guys for tuning in! Please leave your comments and answer the Question of the Day:

Which Pokemon line could you do without?

Exploring the creatures of Gold and Silver, Pokemon One a Day Series 2 can be seen as both a standalone project and expansion to the original marathon of artwork that sought to present one unique new illustration per day. This project builds upon the exploration of personal technical and philosophical concepts and visual styles under daily deadline to create quality works for personal and professional growth.
