Comment on Drakxxx's Project Pokemon Box Art / Cover.

First off guys, my Pokeman, look at them please.

Second, this is design will also be an entry into a competition being held by Mr. Axel_Master, were in round one I'll be up against the talented Sentry.

And finally, about this design:
I've always been an avid Pokemon fan, and the inspiration for this idea originally sparked a few years ago when I came across the
artwork of a guy named Jonas Stenius link on Elfwood (an Art Community), who created a series of drawings depicting Pokemon characters with natural and realistic features. Ever since then, I've been fascinated by the idea, and eventually the stream of consciousness lead me to a complete game idea that featured a slightly more mature and edgy take on Nintendo's popular series.

Like a few of my other custom designs, this is one I've been wanting to see come about for some time, and I'm pretty happy with the result. Much like Mr. Stenius, I took reference from animals I believe the certain Pokemon I depicted in the design would share characteristics with if they were real (lol), so before I actually did any drawings, I did a fair amount of animal research. To make sure the
realistic versions I created were more easily identified with there chibi counterparts, I more or less kept the colors the same. I actually drew over 20 different takes of Pokemon for this design, but found that the ones you see here worked best when i started putting together the composition. The human characters are not in fact representations of Ash, Misty and Brok, but are meant to fit there character archetypes to some extend.

I suppose that about sums it up for now. In the future I might put another one of these together were Pokemon have contracted some kind of psycho virus and...nah....hehe.

Anyways...I hope you guys get a kick out of this, as I definitely had a blast creating it!

Looks like Fallout 3 meets Pokemon. ;)

Not saying the irradiated cousins of the pokemon we've all come to love are worse, they look more menacing and really gives the box itself a different feel. I like it!

I love that new pokeball design the main character is holding on the front, only wish you've gone with the same design for the bullets on the back. Fantastic front composition too, btw. Awesome job.

The pokemon look great, the trainers...not so much. They don't look horrible, it's just awkward seeing thirty-something looking people associated with Pokemon.

Good job, though, as usual.

Seriously, though. How did James, Eddy, and Angela (Silent Hill 2) get their hands on some pokemon?

#18, I forget which Pokemon movie it is, but the one with Celebi and the time traveling and everything, there were adults trying to capture and hunt for the Pokemon.

#19, It's the art style that makes it weird, though. The more realistic style.

Something I just noticed, though. Bulbasaur is based on the frog, not turtle.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you guys are enjoying my more monstrous Pokemons.

#13: The idea of Pokemon being scary was a major concept I had going into this. Lets face it, if Pokemon were real, I think theres a good amount of them I wouldn't want to find in my bushes.

#20: Wow, they do resemble the cast of Silent Hill 2, hah! I agree the more grown up protagonists look even more out of place from traditional Pokemon than the more animalistic Pokemon themselves. I actually originally did a sketch of a young boy with the intentions of making all three characters children, but I didn't care for how they looked on the composition, so I decided to go with the older characters to potentially add even more drama to the concept.

The design is extremely professional. You could make alot of money if you sold some of your work or went into art. Because this stuff is just beautifully done and I can't find any thing wrong in it. You have your own distinct style and it's brilliant, absolutely brilliant!

That's very artistic! Although some of those Pokemon look a tad more horrific than I'd expect. I wouldn't wish that Charizard on my worst enemy! But I would like one of those Gyarados.

But, like you said, this is a more edgy and mature representation of Pokemon. So for that, I'd have to say you nailed it. The only thing I'm not liking so much here is the Green color-scheme. Somehow it's not fitting for me.

Outside of that, everything else is superb. Really really nice job here!

The logo shouldn't be transparant in my opinion. Other than that, it's nice looking and you chose a nice look.
8/10

It cracks me up in a good way. I love how they are kinda grotesque. I wanna see you make a rendition of Lucario, lol. I wanted to do something like this as well, except setting up the scene as if Microsoft came up with the idea and released it for Xbox.

I find that Mew is the ugliest one, lol.

Shouldn't Aipom have no hands?

LOL, I smirked so hard when I first saw this.

but yeah though, it's really nice. It looks very official. The drawings don't look anything "pokemonish", but you explained all that. The guy on the left looks like a drug dealer

My only gripe is the logo on the front. I'm not feeling it at all.

Really creative cover :D
