Boy, think of a really long project: Here it is! 



Almost 5 years in the making, but I'm really happy with the outcome. I started it back in 2011, and the idea was to revamp the original Pokemon Red/Blue sprites but keeping the original lineart (at least most of it), and reshade just the way I imagine it was suposed to look back then (before the TV Show or/and later games, and also not influenced by the original artwork). I also took some color liberties for the sake of creativity.



For presentation, I changed te sequence of some of the sprites in order to let all the evolutions togheter (no line breaks) and to connive with some rumors I heard, like: 



- Ditto was a failed Mew clone. 



- Kangaskhan is the original evolution of Cubone/Marowak.



- Tangela would be somewhat related to Jinx. 



- Venomoth was misplaced with Butterfree.



All in all, it sure has some inconsistence, but it's due to it's project taking so long. So naturally my style changed along the years. Hope you'll like it for what it is though!

Nice Work

Aureliano (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 7/22/2016 05:11

This is so marvellous. Something about the really painterly use of colours on otherwise largely unaltered sprites lends a kind of pathos to the awkwardness and humour of the original sprites. Like your Mario interpretation, reinterpreting entirely from the monochrome sprites goes beyond nostalgia somehow. It makes virtue of the period just before Pokémon became fixed and commodified. + I love that Golem.

albertov (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/8/2016 11:31

DianaDiamond (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/2/2016 04:46

Stunning colors!!! This belongs to the hall of fame!!

Another rumor I heard was that gengar is an evil clefairy or something

BlondeAnt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/2/2016 03:48

I think I'm believing in God again.

PD: Drowzee's pants are dope

Lakelezz (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/2/2016 03:20

Great! I really like that you adapted/converted the original sprite's poses into your style, it triggers my nostaglia xD



I'm happy to see your creativity with the order, it confused me at first, since it was quite a metre to scroll down to the description.


I find it a bit odd, that Wigglytuff suddenly uses dithering, it feels a bit off. Especially since it does not really add any texture knowledge to it, as it does to Primeape.


The colours on Voltorb and Electrode are a bit too orange for my taste. Same goes for Vaporeon.

While Pikachu and Dragonite lacks this orange pitch. There are quite some more of these colour distinctions, therefore I suspect it being on intention : )

This might be all up to your personal preference, of course. I'm only commenting on how it looks compared to the original design.


Huge fan that you used the better-looking Mew sprite reference. It was a worry that occured to me while scrolling down.

I love the motion you put into the Lickitung sprite - especially into the tongue.


Lastly, Drowzee's pants are just too cool and Blastoise is a boss : ) Really triggered my nostalgia.


Greaaat job! Effort paid out!




CritiqueMyWork (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 7/2/2016 03:18

The Venomoth / Butterfree makes sense. Great work!

vazovski (Level 2 Dealer) @ 7/2/2016 02:40

You are my idol.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 7/2/2016 02:25

If Pokemon games looked this good I'd at least like them for their art if nothing else.

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/2/2016 02:02

awesome job dude. I'm glad you managed to finish those :).

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 7/2/2016 01:39


Mega_19 (Level 6 Manager) @ 7/1/2016 22:04
