Get ready to get pinched! Pokemon requests are often some of my very favorite projects to work on because everybody has their own special favorites. Taking those commissions often gives me a chance to paint a character that I’d never choose on my own. Trapinch here is the perfect example of that.
This snappy lil’ fellow is composed of hand-painted 1cm pixels on a 10 x 10in wooden panelboard. The deft use of grayscale tones to communicate dimension in Pokemon box sprites is awe inspiring.
