    Hi,

    I'm looking to become an approved artist so I can contribute art to the site. I have been playing Pokemon religiously since the UK release of the first games, and have used this site on a daily basis for many years. Aside from being a Pokemon fan, I am a fledgling game designer with art skills that I enjoy practising.

    I was advised on the Facebook page to make a thread here with some of my art work to introduce myself, and then apply to be an approved artist to contribute art to the site and facebook page, so here I go.

    First is a 3D study I did of my interpretation of the Charicific Valley, using Unreal, 3DS Max and Zbrush.

    I have some images featuring different styles and media from different projects that i'll post below.

    I'd love to make some 2D and 3D art of environments and Pokemon in different styles for the site.

    Thanks (apologies if i've done anything wrong here)

    Here are some images featuring different styles and media from various non-Pokemon related projects to demonstrate the kind of work I can produce. However, i'm sure you can see some Pokemon influences in some of the original designs.

    Thank you for the welcome! I'm always a bit anxious about creating an awareness of my presence on forums!

    I appreciate the encouragement! I look forward to creating art for my favourite site.
