The Pokemon Alphabet by arkeis-pokemon The Pokemon Alphabet by arkeis-pokemon
Two weeks of hard work produced this. A series of 26 Pokemon speed paintings, one for each letter of the alphabet.
It was a good practice in trying out new color combinations and a lot of these Pokemon are ones I've never drawn before.

Lighting is an amazing thing. Some of these letters wouldn't have worked if it weren't for the ability to manipulate light in a certain way, particularly K, N, R, and even W.

Furthermore, these has got to be the largest artwork I've ever done. Even when you full view this, it's only 60% of what the original artwork is at, which is around 3000 x 4000 pixels.
I may sell the full artwork as a poster or something, if anyone actually wants it.

Anyways, look through this and enjoy. Don't forget to check out the rest of my gallery!

B-But why didn't you use Xerneas, Yvetal, and Zygarde?
Because this was made long before X/Y were announced.

I think these letter are well made, and great quality, but sometimes it's kind of hard to tell what a Pokemon letter is. Otherwise I feel this is a amazing piece of work!

This is very pretty and very high quality. With these kind of skills you could do some wonderful things in a professional field ^^ your use of colors creates a nice contrast on the whole image, not to mention having the various Pokemon used as the shapes of the letters themselves or even slight insinuation at moves. 

Overall this is a very nice piece, any Typography Professor would certainly agree that this is gold.
