Origins by Primogenitor34 Origins by Primogenitor34
So how 'bout that Pokemon Origins, eh? I just watched it a few days ago (subbed), and I feel it's lived up to its hype. My only qualms about it is that it tried to fit an entire game's storyline into just four short episodes. If only it could've been an entire new series...

I drew this as a celebration pic for its release. And yeah, I know this isn't the Red from Origins (this is Red from the Manga Adventures collection), but I'm not entirely fond of Red's design in Origins... can't explain it. Also, a fun fact: this is my first time ever drawing Charizard.

Okay, my first critique, so I hope I'm doing this right.

The piece does a good job presenting the overall ideas of Pokemon Origins and the first gen. Seemingly simple visuals, yet sometimes that's all it takes.

I have seen this theme (Red and Charizard) done before, but I like the fact that you used Adventures Red.

The style is interesting in itself. I like the use of lighting (light and dark areas are great for atmosphere here). The only thing I can see is it might be a little too dark at the top, although that may be the light source (the fire at the side). The art is stylized (I like it better that way, I like seeing fanart works that are not just all the same style as the source material), but certainly not to the point that you can't see the original influences. The lines are strong and that enhances the anime/manga feel of the piece. The gradient background also helps to set a certain mood. The perspective of the two subjects also gives an additional vibe to the piece.

Just as the series, this certainly evokes the (nostalgic) feelings of the first gen of pokemon, and I think with "Pokespe" Red, it only enhances that. I can almost hear the rival battle theme in my head.
What do you think?

This piece is really enjoyable, especially as a pokemon fan myself. I think that it's very well composed, it reads from the charizard to red, all very important elements to the piece. Also, I love the texture that you added to the poke ball and background, it's enough to not be distracting. There are a few things to fix though (isn't that always the case?). First, red's arm is very short and his hand is really small. This may be cartoon style but the rules of proportion and anatomy still apply, even for things like Arnold's head (hey arnold). Also, the other arm that's hidden is in a questionable position and one wonders what's going on with his sleeve (it doesn't seem to be covering the other arm. Also, red's incredible pale and it would be really nice if you incorporated the oranges and yellows into his overall color. Also, the shadows on him and charizard shouldn't just be BLACK. I would suggest the color of charizard's wing, abeit darker. Shadows are never completely black, but are usually the complement of the local color. And while the charizard is impressive, it's distracting because first, it doesn't continue on the left. Second, it juts out from Red's head which is never a good thing in composition. Overall, still a good piece with a ton of dynamism.

Oh that would just about be the coolest thing ever right there. If they did this good with Red and Blue/Green, they oughta be able to pull off Gold and Silver just as spectacularly.
