Fifth Gen Chosen Pokemon by fab-wpg Fifth Gen Chosen Pokemon by fab-wpg
With each gift given, there's always the question of whether the recipient will like it or not... This picture, for my dear friend Splash, takes that question up a notch. I wanted to surprise her, but I don't know which of the new fifth generation Pokémon she's fond of so I challenged myself to see how well I could pick a set that she might like. A surprise? Definitely! A pleasant surprise? No telling! Initially I had about 10 or so picked out to choose from. I got rid of a few including Krookodile as too likely (since it seems 80% of all players have it on their teams by default). Anyway, here's hoping I wasn't too far off the mark in my choices.

Gift aspects aside, I actually drew and inked this by hand, six Pokémon I've never drawn before, relative in scale to one another, with minimal erasing and no digital editing on the line art. That's... kind of unheard of for me. I shocked myself, in fact.

Love it!! Hah hah you know me quite well. I know you mentioned if you got one team member correct, you would consider it a success, got...two! Zebstrika and Sawsbuck are both on my team :) Others, for the record, are Samurott, Krookodile (yes, like 80% of people ;) ), Unfezant, and Reshiram (standard legendary XD). I do really like Cobalian, and probably would have added him to my team, if it hadn't already been firmly set by the time I caught him. Hydregion is another cool one that just didn't fit into my team by the time I caught a deino. I also have a fond spot for Galvantula (he's my "flash"-er), but Zebstrika was my choice for electric. Can't say I was ever a big fan of Swanna, hah hah, but that's okay. Anyways, you did a damn fine job guessing, I must say! This whole scene is awesome though. I really like the dramatic lighting background with the angle of the team members you've makes it feel so...epic! Thank you so much; this is set as my background now ^^ :heart: And, for the record, you were so totally on time! As I know this doesn't happen to often these days with either you or myself, I feel like it needs to be said and appreciated, hah hah!

Yeah, Krookodile, haha, I've got one too. XD So considering that, plus the obvious choices of a starter and a legendary, that really only leaves three slots... And I WAS going to do Unfezant, but I feared to choose between the drastically different male and female varieties. XP Darn Swanna. I thought just maybe you'd use it as a Fly & Surf combo.

Anyway, I'm very glad you liked it. It turned out to be a fun picture to work on in all regards.

Lol, Swanna would have been a good surf/Fly combo if I hadn't chosen Oshawott for a starter. I have a male Unfezant, for the record, hah hah
