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.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.

Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

This is cool! You're so right about the lighting - Ninetales looks so graceful!

Also, good to see pokemon that don't obviously represents their letters (like gen 6 legendaries, despite the other reason you gave).

What process did you go through in deciding which pokemon would represent each letter?

Amazing job. I'm glad you didn't include xerneas yvental or zygarde because that would be pretty lazy
