This is my finished entry for the CGcookie Pokemon-themed summer contest. 

My first Pokemon game was Diamond version. In fact, it was one of the first video games I ever had. 

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I was an awkward, fumbling newb who could barely even use the controls. It was frustrating, bizarre, and absolutely wonderfull. I was always the type of kid that enjoyed playing outside, and having a Nintendo didn't change that. But, there were still times when I would be so lost in that little pixelated world that people would have to call my name several times to get my attention. 

Well over a decade later, I am still an avid Pokemon player. I've collected almost every game that has come out for the Nintendo, and I bought a 3ds just to play X and Y. And though I haven't been able to get Pokemon Go yet, but I tend to support team Instinct. But even now, grown up, with a job, living on my own and trying to figure out how to do my taxes, every time I pick up a game I feel like that little kid again, picking out my first starter. 


If you are interested in the contest, go take a look at it here, and be sure to support the creators.

I love how this piece combines two different types of art. I'd compare it to the kind of media that 'The Amazing World of Gumball' uses, but I think that your use of art here is far more appropriate given the image you're using. It would be nifty if you used a different type of art here (for example, regular digital along with traditional, or something), but I think that the two types you chose (pixel and 'regular' digital) are the most impactful for those who understand what's going on in the scene. In particular, it does a great job of emphasizing the feeling of being transported into the world of Pokemon itself. Fantastic job!

This is awesome, and super creative. I don't normally comment on any art pieces on here, but I felt that this needed to be praised. :D

This is so cool! I love the blurring of the game and reality. I am slightly biased though - my first game was Diamond too and I love it to pieces.

I really do hope that they make re-boots of it like they have been doing with the other games.
