Well, this was my first attempt in all areas of art, and you can see I had no idea at the beginnig :D Then somehow I collected my ideas into a character and I could finally start drawing. I made many changes but hardly I got to the final piece. I tried so many backgrounds, too, and found that one for the best. I added some effects and the pokeball. Thats it.
I used PaintTool SAI, because this was my first artwork and that was the easiest to learn. I highly recommend it for all starters.
