SELF PORTRAIT: I want to battle! (plus some rambling)

(Sorry for how absurdly tall this image ended up being!)



If you read my blog before, you can probably tell I like Pokémon. If not, well, I like Pokémon. A lot. I decided to draw myself in the style of one of my favorite artists, Ken Sugimori, who does the majority of the concept art for the Pokémon series. I’m not that good of an artist, but I did my best to do his style!

Pokémon is probably one of the most influential series for me, period. It was the first game I could call my own, having gotten it on my 5th birthday along with a Game Boy Color. The series got me interested in sprites, art (alongside Kirby), glitches and programming, and allowed me to meet many friends. I could very well be an entirely different person had it not been for this game!

This is a fairly accurate representation of me, sans Pokéballs (unfortunately). Yes, my hair really is that fluffy at the moment. And yes, I really do need that shave. As I said above, I’m not amazing when it comes to art, but I like to doodle and I do try to improve myself whenever I draw something.

Aside from Pokémon, my other favorite franchise is Kirby, which I’ve also written about before. I don’t seek out challenging games, preferring to keep around what I feel I can play, but that doesn’t mean I like to have my hand held. When it comes to visuals, I’m a fan of creative aesthetic design over raw power. Games like Metal Gear Solid 4 look lovely, but I prefer my Epic Yarns and Raymans.
