Pokemon: Kanto Side by e1n Pokemon: Kanto Side by e1n
Click download to see the entire thing.

This one didn't actually take as long as the Johto one [link] but was filled with a lot of distractions and delays because I thought I was going to be sick, so instead of pulling all-nighters to finish this, I ended up sleeping a lot.

Didn't like this one as much as the other one. I think the composition could be better, and some of the proportions are off. Yes, yes, Magmortar was supposed to be at least 5 feet tall. I did not know that until I finished inking the entire bloody thing, by which point there was no longer any way to fix it other than to entirely scrap it and start over, which was never gonna happen.

But hey, it's done. At least now there's a complement to the Johto side.

Now to try to squeeze in one or two One Piece colorspreads before Wednesday printing deadline. I need to somehow work around the fact that half of my copic markers are now dead from these two colorspreads.

WAITT will resume after this. I SWEAR.

The Johto Side:

I love your work, but you think you could do the other Gym Leaders from the other games too?

Great epicness of the Kanto Gym Leaders, you really gave them a cool updated look. Awesome work on your part.

Hey, um, mind if I use this in a 30 day anime challenge on Tumblr...?
It's just really, really good and I would really like to use it. Under your consent of course. If you're okay with it.

Is it bad that this reminds me of Shaman King somehow...?

Gotta admit, Pokemon lost me interest after Gen 3 (Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald). All the stuff after it just felt underwhelming.

I'm with LunarDaughter. Love these as wallpapers.
Any hope for the other regions' leaders?
LunarDaughter Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
Both this and the Johto one now grace my MacBook and I want to say thanks for being so kickass.

Seriously though, if you're not cool with having these used as wallpapers, do let me know!

Great job! ;) I only have two complains:
-Arcanine should be like 2 meters tall and the mouth is too big.
-Raichu should be one of the more agresive since he serverd in war, he killed humans and his own kind.
However this details does not spoil the rest of the composition ^^.
FireCrand Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012  Hobbyist
Oh! and I can't choose between Kanto or Johto, because those regions are conected and both are the best.
classnana Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012
It looks like pokemon meets the style of the old Ravemaster manga.

The very best Johto trainers flock to us in search of a challenge. They like to think they're hot stuff back where they come from. We just smile and shake our heads.

Welcome to Kanto, bitch.

Lol, I didn't make this quote, the guy above did and I have to say, as much as I love Johto they got nothing on Kanto! xD

Although this is based on hgss, the style used reminds me of the original Sugomori artwork from gen I-- especially Sabrina and Blue/Green. Nice job!
pokemonloverx123 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012
are you going to do a sinnoh&unova side?:)
FidosLover Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012
You may have many requests being made, but I would like to see the other three regions done like this as well! these are pretty epic and are currently making my computer more awesome!

Why is there a Tangrowth there?
Jac3905 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012
That would be Erika's. She uses one if you rematch her in HGSS. Blaine has a Magmortar right there in the middle of the drawing, surprised you didn't notice that either.
Zahuranecs Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I should have... Guess I wasn't paying attention, as usual... Never played HG or SS, so I didn't know.

Who is the girl in the white? And the one with the purple hair.
ToonYoungster Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Student Filmographer
The girl in white is Misty and the one with purple hair is either Janine (on the ground) or Sabrina (with the cuffs).

Sorry, I just now have played Soulsilver...
happyametuer Featured By Owner May 28, 2012
Little did most people know (except for Price who was experienced enough to know better), Blaine was giving the Johto side the British "victory" sign.

jgmagicman96 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012
That was only in the original games, and fr/lg, in gold and silver, and hg/ss, Koga is in the elite four and his daughter, jasmine, takes over the gym

I like Blaine and Sabrina

I never thought Sabrina as busty. I love how Raichu and Arcanine look. Misty is in quite a cool pose.

You know, you should start all over. Revise it until you think it's perfect! I will neither watch you nor favourite your artwork until you do. This deviation was clearly not worthy of being a daily deviation.
