Near Pokédex M006 - Charizard
Ever since I first started this Pokédex, one entry people have wanted to see was Charizard. So, I finally did one, and in doing so we now have our first fully completed evolution line (and all in the same gender, too!). When I started I wouldn't have guessed that the Charmander line would be the first one to do this, but that's the way the chips fell.
There's been discussion in the past about whether the larger Pokémon like Charizard would still be on the receiving end in this series, and I hope this pic settles that debate. Followers of my blog should know by now that I have no problem with the physically smaller partner pitching to a larger one (or a weaker person topping a stronger one). I've drawn plenty of pictures like that before, and these are no different. That's not to say I won't ever draw Pokémon topping their partners, but when I do it won't be part of this series.
I might be taking a short break from the Pokédex. I really want to finish some of the "must-do" items on my to do list, namely commissions and the NHML for this month. One of those items should be going up tomorrow, and hopefully the others won't be far behind.
