Fuck Yeah, Ken Sugimori's Art!
There's this little comic strip with red, green and beta!blue by ken... Er sorry if you don't know what I'm talking about, but can that be purchased anywhere or is it purely digital (initially, I think he did traditional work so I was just curious). One more thing if it's ok with you ; ; ; do you know where I can get any of his trainer Red, Green, and or Blue art? I'm so sorry for the long post!!

The only surefire way to get it physically are to dig up the old Japanese magazines from circa 1997 that they were published in. They may have been re-published in the recent Ken Sugimori artbook as well but I don’t have it in front of me at the moment so I can’t check. Scans exist online though, which I assume is how you know about it. I found a couple pieces of beta Trainer R/G/B art I posted on this blog a while back here and here. It might also be worth your time to dig through this blog and this blog. Good luck!

Big scans of the Nidos’ RBY art, with transparency. Why has Nidoqueen lost her fangs over the years…? The last time she had them was in 3rd gen sprites :(

Beautiful.

I just wanted to say this is one of the best blogs I've ever seen! I started playing Pokemon when Crystal came out and fell in love with Sugimori's work, but I've never been able to find it all in one place. Amazing collecting skills!

Thanks! I originally started it because higher-res versions of some of the earlier Sugimori art are difficult to find. I’ve slowed down posting recently though since the art book was released and pretty much all the newer stuff you can easily find on Bulbapedia. I hope this blog can still be useful as a resource to some people though!
