The Official (Bumpable) Sugimori and Co. Artwork Thread

Discussion in 'General Pokémon Discussion' started by MegaJunior, Jan 4, 2007.

    I always enjoy Sugimori artwork very much. The pokemon are best when they are drawn by Ken Sugimori, I think. This is to post special things Sugimori made, it don't have to be pokemon. With special, I mean work that not had been made public, such as lost promote art, or wallpapers.

    I have a few examples here.
    Shiny Charizard wallpaper, which includes Gold/Kenta/Jimmy.
    G/S Neo Expedition TCG expansion.
    TCG Neo 3 promotion
    Jirachi, also includes May and Wally.
    Red/Green/Blue starters art.
    Hoenn Trinity
    Pokemon Dash
    Mystery Dungeon Blue
    Mystery Dungeon Red

    I would like to see more, so if you have art like this, you can share it with us here. You can also discuss about the posted art, of course.

    This link contains a zip with most Sugimori art, and was made by CowDude, who also posted some awesome stuff here.
    *Credits to all of the members who posted art here, especially CowDude and Bulbatordile for some of the examples and Murkronos for almost all the renders*

    The zip was newly edited on October 19, 2007.

    The shiny charizard i've seen at the front of the 10th aniversary prima guide pokedex thing but i've never seen the g/s one.

    The shiny Charizard picture is beautiful!!! The Gold/Silver picture is not good.

    Actually the G/S one was for the Neo Expedition TCG expansion.

    There's tons of Sugimori artwork (and other great pokemon artwork) like this that we never see, it's such a shame.

    Thanks, I will edit the first post that the ''G/S one was for the Neo Expedition TCG expansion''. I hope there will turn up more.

    Here're some I've found. Most aren't Sugimori, but I thought I'd post anyway. They're GameFreak trainer concepts. Nice find on Charizard, by the way.

    Here're some unreleased Pokemon.

    And here's the official site with some of it for Movie 8 and Anime stuff.

    ^ Those are simply amazing. The pic of Gold is my background now. ^^

    The Charizard picture is from the 10th Anniversary Pokedex. Also, there are Sugimori pictures of Snorlax, Charizard, Mewtwo, and Venusaur in the first few pages of the book. It says they're "Exclusive Artwork by Ken Sugimori" and then lists the Japanese Soundtrack to Fire Red/Leaf Green. Although I haven't seen them before, they could've been released prior to the book. I might be able to get them scanned, but it could take a while and they won't be very high quality.

    I'm glad I found this topic. Sugimori Art is my absolute favorite. ^_^

    Sugimori is the best. I love his pictures. Unfortunately, I have none of my own to contribute.

    For those of you who haven't already gone through the 8 and 9 movie Gamefreak Pages, I've uploaded all of the concept from them. I'm still darn missing those ones I didn't save, so if you come across any of this concept that I don't already have, I'd appreciate if you posted it. And I'm sure we'd all like more of anything official art related.

    Great finds, guys! I love Sugimori's work, he's really good.

    they are simply awesome. Sugimori rules.

    also, is all of these related to the Pokemon franchise?

    and it's good that there are non-white characters. I don't get why there aren't any skin colours except white in the games.

    There. Now I've recovered all my previous concept art. Doesn't mean I have it all though. Still workin' on that. XD

    Oh, also, this place has most of the Gamefreak wallpapers that Pokemon-Safari used to have. They don't have the Lucario/Plusle/Minun one (The only one I was goin' for...), but it's still better than nothing.

    Yeah. Almost all of the ones I've posted were from the newer movies. Mostly 8 and 9.

    I've got some of his conceptual artwork for the game 'Screw-Breaker' (known as 'Drill Dozer' outside of Japan). He doesn't produce the finalised artwork for the characters that are seen on the box or anything, but he did all the character designs;

    Jill + Drill Dozer
    Jill + Drill Dozer
    Jill + Drill Dozer
    Jill + supporting characters
    Detective Carrie + random police drones
    Some prototype character that never made it into the game.

    Also, if you visit NOA's Drill Dozer mini-site, there's a short 3 page comic strip drawn by Sugimori that introduces the main characters and sets up the game's plot.

    People on Pokesho have also been posting a bunch of artwork from the manga 'Quinty'. I'm assuming these were produced before he went into the pokémon biz, considering the style is pretty old school.
    In any case, I'll just link to the thread in which the art is being posted.
    There's quite a bit of pokémon stuff there too.
