Sugimori Gym Leaders by lord-phillock Sugimori Gym Leaders by lord-phillock
I did a fun little project of imitating Ken Sugimori's old painterly style to re-create the original R/G/B/Y Gym Leaders and even using his old sketches he posted on his twitter to shamelessly do line-art over and paint. The only exceptions are Giovanni and Blaine where all I had were the sprites, so I did those from the ground up.

Oh these are precious. I particularly like how the girls came out, but that might just be because I love the girls. XD Blaine and Giocanni came out most excellent imo.

Please, I need to know what program you used for coloring and more importantly what techniques you used to get that water-color art style effect.

Manga Studio - watercolor brush. You can do just as well with Paint Tool SAI.

Thank you very much. I'm also looking at Paint Tool SAI and there are many empty Brush slots and I am missing Water color, how do I get the brushes I need? If it is an issue of not having the latest version where should I go to get it?

Hmmm, I suggest looking at tutorials for brush making on SAI. There seems to be quite a lot and Sai seems to be a really good watercolor emulation machine.

Man, that is some incredible work. Put them all in one frame, and we'd have a glorious group shot.

Glad there's someone out there who shows the original Red & Blue designs of these ladies and gentlemen some proper love.
