"Get in the Damn Ball Already" Progress Pictures!

Last weekend, I worked hard on a piece for a contest held at the Pokemon Daily group in DeviantArt. The rules were simply, "have your team of six Pokemon battle a Legendary in it's lair."

Now, I briefly considered making a Big Damn Painting of a Big Damn Epic Battle. Then I remembered that I tend to stink at battle scenes, especially if they involve more than two characters/figures (one-on-one fights are more dramatically interesting anyway).

But more importantly, I remembered what actual in-game encounters with Legendaries are really like...

1.14.11 - "Get in The Damn Ball Already!" sketches

So I whipped up the sketches you see here. With an end-of-the-month deadline, a big painting was out of the question, but I didn't really want to do yet another digital painting either. Watercolor felt right. I just didn't want this piece to look "too neat", it wouldn't fit the tone I was going for.

Battling the strong trainers (such as the Elite Four) might make a better candidate for "epic" battles, in contrast to the grueling ones often "fought" against legendaries.
