Story behind this doodle. On Twitter, I was randomly talking about an upcoming otome game, Brothers Conflict. In this game, you have a shit ton of “step-brothers.” Since you have so many, the game has been divided into 2 versions: Passion Pink and Brilliant Blue (
lol, sounds like a name you’d give a perfume line xD). I related the game to the Poke’mon games, since not only were they divided into 2 versions but also because there are a shit ton of critters to enslave and trap in your balls… ( xD that didn’t sound right). My bud, @myuniques, saw my comment and we began goofing around with the concept of capturing hot guys like one would Poke’mon. That’s when she got the idea: POKE’MON BISHI CHALLENGE
Me: >:D yes!
We both got introduced to Poke’mon at different stages. I’m an old fart and I started with Red/Blue. She started with Ruby/Sapphire. So, the challenge is to draw the starter Poke’mon we started with as cuties <3 I have Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur. She has Torchick, Treecko, and Mudkip ~
I started with Charmander first (because I ALWAYS chose Charmander in the games. F the others xD) but he came out too adorable. When I think of the starter Poke’mon, I think cute little kids. But then somewhere in their life, something goes horribly wrong which leads them astray and turn into delinquents. This delinquent stage is their second evolution – I mean, look at them! They look so angry and punk-ish!
Instead, I decided to draw Charmeleon instead:
I had the themes “delinquent” and “punk” when drawing this picture. I’ll be honest: I hate his hair. However, since Charmeleon has that tumor coming out the back of his skull, the closest thing I could do for his bishi version was tie his hair back into a high pony tail (
bc f if I’m going to draw a tumor coming out of my guy’s head >:U). While he looked cuter with his hair down, he actually looks more deviant with the hair up like that ( actually, he looks more like a rooster but we’ll not go there xD)
No idea why I have him eating a lollipop. Now that I look at this picture properly, it looks like he went to a candy store and stole some candy before setting the place on fire >__>;
Here are some rough doodles I used before settling on the above picture:
This was so I can see what outfit I wanted. Don’t ask why he’s running from the paparazzi xD
Random doodle of Ash as a chick. He’s probably thinking, wtf is wrong with this scenario…
THE PAIN IT TOOK TO GET HIS HAIR!
