Welcome to the Pokemon Drawing Project!
What is this project? Basically, instead of capturing Pokemon, we are going to draw Pokemon! And, much like you collect Pokemon in the games, this project allows you to collect your Pokemon drawings to make one physical, homemade Pokedex.
Why is it called a project? A project has a clear goal, it needs to be planned, and it has a definitive start and an end. The Pokemon Drawing Project is a project because my end goal is to create a tutorial for all of you for every single Pokemon in the franchise! And I will do so by starting from the beginning – 001 Bulbasaur – and move on, in numerical order.
I invite you to join me in doing this project! I have made these Pokedex Drawing Cards available for you to download and print for when you do follow my tutorials. If you live in North America, right-click and download this 8.5″ x 11″ sized image.
And if you live outside of North America, your standard paper size is A4. It’s a little narrower and a bit longer. Right-click and download this one:
If you do this project like I do, at the end of it all you should have a stack of Pokedex Drawing Cards which, if you bind the sides, you can turn into a drawing book!
If you don’t wish to download and use these Pokedex Drawing Cards, that’s entirely okay, too! My videos will still function like my normal tutorials do, so if you want to draw them on any kind of paper, that’s totally fine! And if you choose to skip drawing any Pokemon for any reason, that’s totally fine, too!
Think of it as, once you draw a Pokemon, you have captured that Pokemon. And instead of “gotta catch em all” I say, “gotta draw em all!”
So come join me in drawing all the Pokemon! Here’s what to do:
- Download the Pokedex Drawing Card template above! Make sure you have the right image for your paper size.
- Print as many as you want out! I suggest to change your settings to have a print scale of 100%. This makes sure that your drawing cards are in scale and you won’t get any weirdly sized borders. Any blank, white paper will do, Use cardstock if you have any because they make for better cards.
- Grab your drawing tools and watch my video tutorials! Start with #001 Bulbasaur and go from there! The format to my Pokemon tutorials are a little different in that I don’t do an intro. But don’t worry, I will narrate each step. Follow along and remember to pause if you need to.
- Once you are finished, fill out the Pokedex Drawing Card! Head to http://pokemondb.net/pokedex/all to find the information on each Pokemon.
I will be uploading between one to three Pokemon tutorials a week, depending on the difficulty level of the Pokemon drawings. These won’t interrupt my regularly scheduled tutorials, so don’t worry. These videos will come out throughout the week in the afternoons, 2:30 p.m. Central Time.
I hope you join me in this project! Be sure to update me on your progress by posting your artwork or your stack of Pokedex Drawing Cards on Facebook, Instagram, or the Google+ community!
