How about some poison bunnies? I remember always being reluctant to evolve my Nidoran because I wanted it to stay cute and rabbit-like, but now I'm quite fond of Nidorina's design. Nidoqueen is a little confusing (I caught a rabbit and now it's a... dinosaur?) but she's pretty tough so I think we can get along.
These three miniatures are available to buy in my online shop!

Here's two of my favourites, and finally a blue version-exclusive, Sandshrew and Sandslash! Their move sets are a little boring in the game (I don't think they even learn any ground-type moves despite being ground-type pokémon, it's all Scratch and Slash and such) but I loved them anyway because they're like cute little armadillos with knives for hands. What's not to like?
These little ones are available to buy in my shop as usual!

Oh gaw, Pikachu! It's only the mascot for the whole franchise and the no. 1 most recognisable pokémon, no pressure! I was quite relieved to have it out of the way! I always liked Raichu better as a child, but I hadn't realised how goofy its design is until I was looking up reference. It doesn't even have fingers, its arms are just little nubs, and its ears barely look like part of its body! I gave it a quick re-design to make it look more dignified.
These little ones are available in my online shop with the others!

Here's something different, old marker experiments! When I first got my marker set I struggled with the limited colour palette (it's only a set of 36), and did quite a few tests before I found a method I liked. I stumbled on these the other day because I was trying to draw Franz (the blonde covered in blood) and I needed reference. Much to my embarrassment, this is really the only picture I have of him that has a good likeness and I have to reference it every time if I want my drawing to look like him. I'm sorry Franz, I try.

Ekans and Arbok are the first version-exclusive pokémon in this challenge! I liked them as a child because I liked snakes, but I never owned one because I had Pokémon Blue, and these two only appear in the wild in Pokémon Red. I suppose I could have traded with my friend who did have Red, but she lived all the way round the corner. Much too much like hard work.
The original miniatures are available to buy in my online shop, as usual!

Ah, Spearow and Fearow. The scruffy and aggressive end of the gen 1 bird pokémon! Fearow was harder than I expected, but it was fun once I found the right bird to use for reference (I tried several but settled on a vulture). It's nice to do some 'rough terrain' pokémon as well.
The original miniatures are now up in my online shop as usual!
