Another quick doodle done completed in Manga Studio, still needs to be touched up/edited.

Here's a little backstory: upon entering the Kanto region, trainer Edward James surfs to Pallet Town to meet the renowned Professor Oak. Unfortunately he is very preoccupied giving out starter Pokemon to new eager trainers. In the midst of the chaos, a strange looking Charmander is cast out and ostracized by the other children for appearing different; his scales gleam an unusual yellowish color perceived off putting. The children and other Pokemon laugh and kick mud upon him until the flame in his tail becomes nearly extinguished.

The little creature's life is almost over.

Then suddenly, a shadow appears over his trembling form. No matter the force being thrown towards them, Edward stands tall as a barrier between the rowdy crowd and a very surprised Charmander.

With one very gentle sweep, the trainer lifts the fragile shaking Pokemon into her arms.
"Don't mind the others." Edward replies softly. "Often people discard what they do not understand."

Together they walk into the grass. "Come with me," the trainer smiles, "Let's go be strange together."

Comic series coming soon. Thanks for viewing.
