Near Pokédex F025 - Pikachu
I really wasn't expecting my next post to be another Pokédex one, but these pics just go by so quickly that in this case I accidentally finished it just while taking a breather from "A Trip to the Past" (coming soon!).
As the mascot of the franchise, it was important to me that Pikachu get added early on to this collection. I kind of struggles a bit with her head, Pikachus basically have a big fat head that goes straight into their shoulders, with their neck kind of melting into both the head and torso. It's a fine design for an animal, but it looked weird with these more human proportions so I had to fiddle around with it a bit. In the end I'm happy with the final result, and I hope you guys will be to.
I've been extremely pleased with the response this project has been getting. Every time I start one of these I'm filled with anxiety, as I have very little experience with furries and I really don't know if I'm pulling off what I want to do. However, most people seem to enjoy these, which comes as a huge relief.
I think the next time I post a Pokédex entry, I'll try switching to the "M" set. I haven't done a male entry yet, and I have a few ideas. While I intend to have some entries for both genders, I'm not quite ready to draw the starters again, so the first Near Pokédex M entry will actually be one most of you probably won't expect.
