Nidoran (Female) The Poison Pin Pokemon Poison Type Years before my cousin Tony married his now wife Maria, there was an episode of Pokemon that featured a male and female Nidoran couple with the same names. My brother and sister could not believe that Pokemon could dictate the future, or at the very least the future of my cousin :P
Kicking ass and taking names in Pokemon Blue those years ago, I ran a team that included Nidoking. I thought he was of course rather badass, but lamented the fact that the boy pokemon was pink and the girl was blue. Now that I'm older, I'm obviously used to it but I like this color set up better. Apparently during the era of samurai, the color pink was thought to be rather manly.
Going back to the female Nidoran illustration, I used the blue in a softer tone to accentuate the female characteristics...As such, I made the spikes on her ears and back, as well as the horn on her head simple budding buds, since the horn is the feature of the male line. The color set up is a mix of the various colors I've seen represent the female Nidoran between Pokemon cards, the games, the tv show, and figures. She's colored a pale purple or a bluish tone most of the time, so I combined the two for this piece.
And that does it for today! Thank you for reading and viewing today's Pokemon of the day! Be sure to share this work and spread the word!
+ Pokemon One a Day is a series illustrated and curated by Bonny John in an effort to represent the entire catalogue of characters from the world wide phenomenon that is known as Pokemon. The idea is simple - to draw and share one new Pokemon a day (weekends off!) until every Pokemon is completed. This project is an exploration of fine art styles for learning and leisurely purposes.
