A couple months ago while sketching at the Portland Wizard Comic Convention I realized how repetitive all the Latios images I had ever seen were. Especially any of the pokemon card art. I now consider it a fun little challenge to come up with different ways to act and present the design.
Man, there's a lot of amazing Pokemon card art though isn't there? I wish the images were collected into an art book. It's the variety of styles and the imagination that I admire so much about the series. As much as I love the technical skill sets of artists like Mitsuhiro Arita or Kouki Saitou, some of my favorite images are from Kenkichi Toyama and Tomokazu Komiya .
It's too bad Ken Sugimori's use so much filtered photo nonsense.
