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!
