The Adventure Begins by cartoongirl7 The Adventure Begins by cartoongirl7
Materials: Copic Sketch markers, Multiliners 003/005, PS for adjustments.
Time: 40 hours.

This will be sold as a print at the upcoming Fanime and Anime Expo!
Also, I'll be doing print sales in July again, so this will be available as well.


Characters from left to right: May (Ruby/Sapphire), Lyra (HG/SS), Red (RBY), Ethan (HG/SS), Dawn (Diamond/Pearl/Platinum)

Because I've been playing since the RBY days, I decided to keep all the character designs old school (ie, Red doesn't look like the revamped one in FR/LG and Brawl). I also went by the official designs, so Dawn's hair is gray and Ethan's is blue.

I included a pretty healthy mix of generation I-IV pokemon, but I focused more on the second gen since HGSS is the current game out. I love drawing pokemon, they're so ridiculously fun :happycry:

As for the Cameron Photography logo, anyone who has played HGSS should hopefully recognize Cameron, the creepy old man/photographer that wanders around Johto and Kanto to take pictures of you and your party. He pops up at the most ridiculous places, like Ice Path and Mount Silver. I don't even know how he gets there 8|

A MILLION THANKS TO :icone1n: FOR MAKING THE MOST FANTASTIC LOGO FOR ME and helping me with the anatomy... and hands... and everything else. The logo is my favorite part of the drawing, srsly :heart:

Needless to say, this is a very well composed drawing.

The amount of detail is not too much, yet not too little. I believe Goldilocks would appreciate this amount of detail the most if you know what I mean.

The color scheme for the trainers works out fine. While I may have some reservations pertaining to the color scheme of the trainers' outfits, those are minor. The most important thing to say here is that it works and it helps them stand out against the Pokemon and the background.

The color scheme for the Pokemon (when put together as a whole) works.

The shading itself is very good. Again, I would use the Goldilocks analogy to describe it.

And as for the choice in Pokemon. Let's just say that my preferred Pokemon will most likely differ from your proffered Pokemon. Of course, it is important to choose Pokemon that will produce a workable color scheme when they assemble together.

That is all i have to say right now. Have a nice day.

This piece is very beautiful, as a marker artist myself I can tell the artist put a great deal of effort and skill into this piece.. The the amount of detail and precision in the textures and shading is alot of work and requires an equal amount of experience to pull off, this artist has accomplished this aspect with perfection. As for the drawing itself, the artist's style is very refined and professional, not only being able to take on the designs of the trainers but the Pokemon themselves creating a picture that fits together perfectly.

The theme is something that the fans of the games will get right away; it being a feature from the newer games in which a photographer takes photographs of the player's character on certain days. As for the characters themselves the artist included at least one from each generation, with a addition being the new female player character from the HeartGold & SoulSilver remakes of the second generation games. Another thing to note is that the artist included at least one starter from each of the four generations and some of the various Pokemon encountered throughout the games.

All in all this is a wonderful piece that allows the the viewer to reflect on the previous generations just in time for generation V. This an excellent piece from and excellent artist!

I love the Pokémon trainer with the blue eyes and black/yellow hat. He reminds me of Lost Silver (my absolute favorite creepy pasta) and charzard *laughs* XD

beautiful! But why is red all fun and exciting? He is supposed to be a lonely hermit who resides on top of a mountain... After a certain time though...

This is so amazing! I love the way you used markers to colour this, and the colours you used! I also love the five characters you drew, these are some of my favourites! You also drew lots of great Pokemon, like Snorlax! This is great, and you can only get better! Good job!!

I personally like Dawn and May's character... Lyra is somewhat too childish ( the original design of gamefreak)

But your drawing made Lyra look much more better ;)

I love those characters, and I love pokemon. Cameron reminds me of the random photographer from Earthbound with the way he pops up everywhere.

I love this, but I do have one complaint. You should have put all the Pokemon each trainer has. But I'll give you that one because it is time-consuming.
