I've always been interested in the idea of what pokemon might look like in their natural environment. In the show and game it's always these super cartoony monsters in really strange situations. I wanted to draw one of the monsters in the original style, but in a realistic environment. This was good practice for my environment sketches.
I imagine that doing nature documentaries in the Pokemon world is super dangerous. "And here is the patriarch, the king of the forest. This is the Nidoking's territory. Further back, you can make out his mate. If anything is detected in the Nidoking's turf, it will charge without hesitation..."
Shoot, why even leave the house? Television in Pokeland must be amazing.
