Pokemon Redesign #209-210 – Snubbull, Granbull

So throughout my Pokemon Redesign stuff, the only redesigns I went back and changed really hard were Pikachu and Raichu, twice, and even then, they definitely don’t have the same charm as their mascot-tier counterparts. XD

But the redesigns aren’t really meant to be better, equal or whatever to the original Pokemon. I love Pokemon, most of my brain is devoted to just remembering all of them and thinking about how great they are, and of course my weird ass designs don’t come close to world’s most successful franchise. I did this as a sort of way to express how I feel about Pokemon and to challenge myself with a conceptual-sort of project, viewing each Pokemon as a drawing prompt in a way.

I did some off the cuff, while I was sick with the flu, while I was sleep deprived and while I was having panic attacks. Some are just products of their time and they of course won’t look as good as my newer work, but very rarely do I go back and change a redesign, what’s done is done, but for some reason, my Granbull redesign kind of bothered me. I liked the idea but I felt like it lost how I feel about Granbull, so for the 3rd time I’ve gone back and changed a redesign.

I think now I can safely say I’m fully satisfied with my redesign project. I’ve been really enjoying doing the proto Pokemon as obscure as they are, and I still plan on doing Sword and Shield of course, and we’ll see what happens after.

Thanks for everyone who still follows my work, redesigns or otherwise. You have all my gratitude if you took some time to check out my stuff, and if you enjoyed it, even just a little, means the whole world to me. I wasn’t expecting to get mushy over Granbull but I am so whatever. C:
