Gotta draw 'em a-...gotta draw a lot of them

Hello there! Welcome to the world of pokémon! My name is Tobi! People generally don't call me the pokémon Prof, mostly because I don't have the qualifications to show for it. This world isn't really inhabited by creatures called pokémon, but it is of my opinion that it would be pretty cool if they did. For some people, pokémon are pets. Others use them for fights. Myself...I'm going to draw pokémon as a hobby this weekend.

After stumbling on this amazing gallery, where someone tried to draw all first generation pokémon from memory, I got a burst of motivation. Joining me in the festivities is my trusty side-kick, Alexandra, and... What's that? A new challenger appears? Please give a warm welcome to miss Leanne, who also volunteered to partake. To illustrate the pedigree and work-ethic of these fine artletes, I thought it would be fitting to show you good folks a sample of who is participating. Back in 2007 Allie made 100 hands in a variety of styles and different media. Leanne on the other hand did a Daily Doodle challenge, where she made a drawing every single day of 2011. Tobi made a single image of a scooting Sonic and is still riding off its imaginary success.

However since we don't want this to drag for too long, some ground rules should probably be established.

  1. The deadline for this grand event is the end of this week. Results shall hopefully be posted on monday.
  2. We'll attempt to draw as many of the first generation pokémon as we can. This refers to the first 151 types, for those who like to keep count.
  3. We will be doing this entirely from memory. No one may look up pokémon names, designs or listen to Pokéraps (Sorry, Leanne) during the challenge. If you forget a pokémon, that's fine. If you mess a design up, that's even better.
  4. At no point during this challenge may you think of the Inspector Gadget themesong.

Breaking these rules will be punished with frowns.

So now that this has been announced, no one can drop out without being publicly shamed. Best of luck to everyone involved. May your work be inferior to my own.

  2. Better get it all out of your system before you start drawing, or it's frown-town for you!
