Pokemon Gallery: Nidoqueen!

#31. Nidoqueen. This was my contribution for "PokeArt for Charity" that our program at San Jose State set up. My two friends wanted to have a fun art gallery dedicated to the first generation of Pokemon and we were randomly selected with a pokemon. I ended up with Nidoqueen.

100% profit from this gallery will be donated to "Canines for Disabled Kids". For more information about it, you can visit

The Final (7x7)

The Steps

1. Actually drawing it out
 2. Scanning it in and ink in photoshop

3. Blocking in her colors
 4. Cel shade and blend them together

5. Print out loads of copies and cut 'em up

Final Thoughts: I had so much fun with this pokemon, especially since I didn't know too much about it. It wasn't always my favorite when I was a kid, but now, I really love Nidoqueen. I mean look at those mouse ears. I would love to do this again in the near future.
