All 649 Pokemon: Gotta Draw Em All by Fishenod All 649 Pokemon: Gotta Draw Em All by Fishenod
This is FULLY traditional on 5 pieces of 9x12 inch paper!

Wow…guys I did it. I finally did it. A couple hundred hours and two years later, I finally proved to my friends that I could draw all 649 Pokemon(+extra forms). Not only that, but I did so traditionally. Pardon my bragging, but I feel like I have a small right to, at the least.

If you guys hadn’t noticed, I had purposely put water on the bottom of each region so that I could connect them all like this in the end. I think I may have mentioned it in one of the other pictures, but I don’t remember. X’D

For each picture, I wrote out (by hand, it helped with memorizing each Pokemon and stuff) every single Pokemon in that region and their exact heights. I then went through and starred every Pokemon below 3 feet tall and underlined every Pokemon over 6 feet tall. I would also circle Pokemon that could be swimming and put cloud-shaped circles around Pokemon that could be flying. When I had my list categorized like that, I would begin organizing each Pokemon onto the piece of 9x12 inch paper. They all look like blobs to begin with, so I would label them so I knew which one was which. After I finish organizing all the blobs, I would pretty much triple check to make sure I have every single Pokemon.

Then, I would begin to slowly sketch each Pokemon in. Once in a while, when I’m sure that there were no mistakes, I would outline a cluster of Pokemon that I had sketched so that I wouldn’t smudge the pencil. And believe me, I SMUDGED. A LOT. Once everything was sketched and lined, I did another check through before I started coloring. I prefer to go one Pokemon at a time (or an evolution line at a time, since they share colors) and in Pokedex order to ensure that I don't miss a single one. The worst part about coloring is trying to figure out which line belonged to which Pokemon, especially the ones in the background. I spend a lot of time adding lines that I forgot or scrutinizing others to figure out what they were. I always find a couple lines that shouldn’t be there, which really sucks. But it’s all traditional, and I don’t have the luxury of layers and unlimited erases and undoes. I just have to be very, very careful.

It feels pretty great to have finally finished this! When I finished, my suitemates were so excited that they were taking pictures of me and posted things all over Facebook, so I got pretty excited too. Then it really hit me that I finally managed to finish this crazy project of mine. I was really excited when I first decided to start this project two years ago and had told my best friends about my idea. They all thought I was crazy and told me that I would never see this through to the end. I think they were half-joking at the time, but I was pretty insulted that they did not believe me (especially my bestest friend ever). So, excitement turned into determination and I set out on my own little version of a Pokemon Journey to prove them all wrong. Operation “Gotta Draw ‘Em All” was a go.

They were pretty surprised when I first finished Kanto. It was only after I finished Johto that they realized I was actually VERY serious about finishing this. I’ll admit, I slacked off with Hoenn, but I forced myself to keep going. At this point, a couple of my friends were actively encouraging me. By the time I finished Sinnoh, they all thought that I was going to finish and were excited for me too. I had a very hard time with Unova, but from the support of my new friends as well, I managed to pull through.

It seems odd to thank my friends for their lack of support, but really, that’s what drove me to keep going. But seriously, I love you guys! Thanks for all the support you did give me though and to everyone who followed me through every step of the way!

But yes, I TOLD YOU SO. HAH. I GET TO GLOAT. HEAR ME GLOAT.

So that’s it. I’ll be selling each region individually at FanimeCon 2013 and Anime Expo 2013, but you can connect them yourself! When I figure out how to print this out as a banner, I will be selling that too.

Yeah guys, I’m doing Gen VI too. But I’m going to wait until the second game in the series comes out so I can see every Pokemon there is in that region.

Tools: Copic Sketch, White Gel Pen, Copic Multiliner, connected with Photoshop
Here’s the individual regions:
Kanto:
Johto:
Hoenn:
Sinnoh:
Unova:

I really love these arts:-)
What do you think about adding Kalos now (with both megas from XY and OR/AS as it appears that Gen 7 will be released by the end of year (with the Sun/Moon games).
I think also Zygarde forms could be there:-)

Regarding Kalos, it's possible that Zygarde could have new forme or 2.
Would be nice to see your Kalos collection drawing so far and then it can be edited/redrawn to include the new formes/etc. But I doubt that.:(

I'm just worried about having a lot of smaller ones showing up and not having room to put them in. :( I might start it this summer and just leave a lot of room for additions if I need to! In the past I would make mounds of rock to put extra Pokemon on, so maybe I will make extra room for that in case new Pokemon pop up. :) I know a lot of people have been looking forward to it, haha.

I say think of it as including each of the Pokemon "forms" in the photo. Just make sure to capture each form as it is looked at as a "different Pokemon" in many ways. I think that would be cool to see! My opinion!! You are such an amazing artist!

Yeah. Everyone believes that there will be events in due time though, maybe moving the whole number over 70. But still, yeah that's a lot less than 156 from last gen XD

Oh boy, I got the new game and it looks like it's only like 69 new ones. Imma wait for the next game before I start drawing this generation. It's really tiny at this moment.

:iconjpmouz:
jpmouz Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2013
Hey, since your doing extra forms.  It'll be like this:

69 new Pokes + 28 Mega Evos + 3 Unconfirmed But Most Definitely Real Event Pokemon (That the hackers will probably find soon, they're making great progress from what I can tell) = 100 things you can draw, not mentioning the extra forms for some of the new pokes

Unless mega evos aren't your thing

:iconfishenod:
Fishenod Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm debating if I want to do the mega evols or not. Technically they are already existent Pokemon, but I guess all the extra forms I do are existent Pokemon too...Hmmmm. I'll wait and see if they release a second game for Gen VI before I decide how I will approach this region. It's very small at the moment. :/ I really do like those mega evos though. Some of them look REALLY cool.
