Day 59

Fairy Pokemon

There is only one team out there whose prestige has earned them the most coveted championship trophies in the league...The G*Bulls of course! Today’s One a Day features Granbull, the mascot for this baseball team! What’s his name? Babe Ruff of course.

Granbull is loser in the design department. Snubbull had this cute odd charm to him, and he evolves into the most bland and uninspired Pokemon this side of the Johto region. When I thought about what to do with him, I thought about looking for other famous dogs like Jake from yesterday’s piece...Except nothing really stuck.


The closest was Spike from Tom and Jerry but I thought it might go over a lot of people’s head (sad, because I LOVE TOM AND JERRY) so I thought about other interpretations of bulldogs. The next thing I thought about were mascots...For some reason, the bulldog is one of the most popular/visible mascots for sports teams around

I started with a more general pose that looked fierce and intimidating but it wasn’t really going anywhere. I decided to go more “graphic design” and incorporated lettering and more simple shading as if it were a graphic to print on a t-shirt that a fan might wear. Slowly but surely, things were evened out an a nice little “TM” was added for authenticity.

So there you have it guys, another illustration! This week has been crazy for me and I apologize for yet another late piece of art. Everything pre-hiatus hit around 7 so I’ll try and aim for that next week. Thanks for tuning in y’all!
