It's Weedle! The Pokemon you caught because, well, why not? You had no one else in your party and many of these guys got in your way as you tried to capture that rare Pikachu in the area. I can't really think of a time I ever really kept any of the early area Pokemon, except maybe Pidgey in the first game because Ash was running Pidgeotto on his team on the show.
Weedle is a design that's straight forward and not very interesting, in my opinion. He's got a horn and a stinger at the end of his body indicative that his future with pointy thingmabobs only gets better. Other than that, he's colored rather bland, with a pink nose and feet. I had an idea to draw Weedle as a Wiggler, from the Super Mario games, but opted against it because the challenge is to come up with my own unique interpretations. That said, I do want to do crossovers in the future so if the design is really asking for it, then I might bring other properties and their art styles into the mix.
My first attempt at Weedle felt a little too close to Caterpie, so I decided to go with this route which was born out of the fact that I attempted to collage at first. I chose not to because I didn't want to "play" out the style and reserve it for some truly worth Pokemon...No offense Weedle!
+ 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.
