Pokemon Manga Project - Some Basic Ideas (and Concept Art)
by, 23rd June 2013 at 06:48 PM (4370 Views)
As mentioned in my last post, I'm currently planning on writing and drawing a Pokemon manga based on all generations of Pokemon games, and serving as somewhat of a reboot/redesign of the anime. This is a basic outline of the concepts I've come up with, and of course, I'll also list the corresponding openings themes if it were to replace the anime (just for fun). Like the Pokemon Special manga and the video games, it will switch protagonists every generation or so, rather than just sticking to one (though old characters will still appear from time to time). In effect of using the Japanese Pokemon canon as basis for construction, it will use Japanese names. In terms of portraying technology, I may take some cues from Dengeki Pikachu.

Here are some doodles I did for Mei, Ai, and "Sayako".
Mei (a direct adaptation of Game!Mei's design)
Ai (Birth of Mewtwo, a direct adaptation)
Sayako (Blue counterpart, her Kanto design is based off unused Sugimori art of a possible female PC - I made some minor liberties compared to her Special counterpart)
The Generation I and II characters will have a "90's" flavor to them and will be drawn with Ken Sugimori's early "Akira Toriyama"-esque style. All other generation will be drawn with more modern anime designs.
...More to come. Any comments and feedback appreciated! I'll even take suggestions.
