The Shadow Pokémon
Here is my interpretation of Gengar, aka the greatest Pokeman to have ever existed. I wanted to sort of bring him into the real world, but still keep his cartoony and simplistic design intact.
Gengar - Sugimori Style Mimic
I decided to to try and replicate Sugimori’s watercolor style on his Gengar design using Photoshop, I think I came pretty close. I did this mostly because I think watercolors gave a certain richness and charm to the previous designs, as opposed to the digital method they use now. And nostalgia.
