while I started this endeavor in 2009, I was not regularly drawing them when generation 5 came out. that gave me a lot of time to get familiar with new pokemon before I started filling in from letter A.
with gen 6 less than two weeks away, I have decided to put the 150+ project on a 8 week hiatus, meaning the next pokemon will be posted on nov. 24, 2013.
there are a few reasons for this:
- it will allow me enough time to play x or y for myself
- it will allow others to play through the games as well
- I share a sentiment with many others in which I don't want to be 'spoiled' for the new pokemon (meaning the ones not revealed before launch). I don't want to look at a full list right after launch to determine which to draw. and I don't want people to see pokemon they'd rather discover on their own
- it will start now, because I have just finished the letter E, and don't want to start on F until gen 6 is caught up.
- it will allow me more time to work on other art related projects (like my webcomic-to-be!)
this doesn't mean I won't be drawing pokemon at all. my main art tumblr is where you'd find that:@barbalarga
thanks for understanding, and I'll see you on the other side of gen 6.
