Grab Your Starter by Jalbenn Grab Your Starter by Jalbenn
Title taken from the lyrics of my bands song "the Adventure Begins" found here---> pressstart2play.bandcamp.com/t… :)

This went through a lot of revising. The original idea started like this i54.photobucket.com/albums/g11…

Then I scraped that idea and tried again. After that I went to and illustrators workshop and learned some new composition things I wanted to try out and got closer to what it is now.

When I started this comp I had also picked up the television show where I left it off and now I am completely caught up! Any episode where Charizard came back was always so fun and I'm stoked that he is now on Ash's team again for B/W.

I should be posting a journal in the near future about some other poke projects I have which are getting me pretty excited.

This is great! I love the almost realistic way you drew this and it just makes me go on a nostalgia trip and I just want to giggle with geeky glee. Heeee~


Also, I can't stop listening to that song. Definitely going to buy it soon. (Also, I really want to use it in as my Pokémon Nuzlocke opening...)

I absolutely love the style you used. You made them come to life and look like they could be real which I love!<3 I just love the realism and how you can see their evolutions in the dark background. Mew is a great touch to the background.
