Pokemon Paperchildren Challenge!

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 13, 2011, 2:51 PM

This is a challenge open to anyone of whatever age, skill or style. The goal is to make a pokedex entirely of Pokemon paperchildren! Or Papermon for short.
We'll be doing the first 151 Pokemon to start with! With everyone's ideas combined, it would really make a fun and original pokedex created by several Deviant artists and a huge achievement for those who participate. There are a lot of Pokemon so the more artists working together; the better! If you'd like to join PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BELOW!

A paperchild is a cut out of a character or monster etc that you have drawn and coloured, usually by hand, and is no bigger than your hand (normally!). Many Deviant artists have made them to look as though they're interacting with how you hold them or the environment around them, making it fun to come up with poses to draw them in!
Here are some examples:
Bulbasaur Papermon by Kidura PPMN 1.3 - Tepig by Dirgenesis Paper Chimecho by pettyartist Hang In There Scraggy by OEmilyThePenguinO Cyndaquil by katieshmatie Magmar Paperchild by tavington

Some people make little tabs or use sticky tape or bluetack to hold them in place while taking a photo, if you're wondering. Paperchildren shouldn't really take too long to make, depending on how you work.

There is a list below of what Pokemon are available to make. YOU MAY DO ONLY ONE AT A TIME. Make a list of your top 5 choices and post your list in this journal. This is so that if your first choice has already been taken, the next on your list (that's available) will be your choice instead. Wait until I reply to you before making it!! . I'll then put your name next to the pokemon that's available from your list, and let you know. This is first come first serve, so please be willing to make the Papermon you have chosen!!! AND DON'T CHANGE YOUR CHOICES AFTER ALREADY POSTING A LIST!! AND DON'T NOTE ME YOUR CHOICES!! I hope that makes sense :XD:

:bulletwhite: No fakemon. This will be a pokedex for the official Pokemon.
:bulletwhite: No shinies. I know I know, shinies are great but let's just stick to how they usually look kay ^^
:bulletwhite: Full body Papermon. Try not to hide too much of it behind an obstacle when posing.
:bulletwhite! No Lineart. It would be more suitable to have it in colour.
:bulletwhite: Only one entry at a time and you cannot do two different pokemon together, but two or more of the same pokemon is fine.
:bulletwhite: It may hold a small item or random things, like hearts etc, but it'd be better if it was holding or interacting with a real life item.
:bulletwhite: The pose is entirely up to you, you may have it just looking happy or biting your finger or exploring your train station or supermarket, stuck in a tree, on the beach, raiding the fridge.. for example, use your imagination! This would make it a fun pokedex. But please be sensible. No rude poses please.
:bulletwhite: You may draw your Papermon in any style but it must resemble the Pokemon you are doing.
:bulletwhite: When it's done, it looks nicer cut out to its outline with no white bits on the outside as this makes it more realistic. Have a look at how other artists make their paperchildren/Papermon if you're not sure. Here's mine (…
:bulletwhite: Finally, take a photo of your Papermon! Make sure that it's a reasonably good close up so it will be easier to see when sized down for the full pokedex. UPLOAD IT AND LET ME KNOW, PROVIDING ME WITH A LINK/DOWNLOAD TO YOUR PHOTO IN A NOTE TO ME.
:bulletwhite: You may make another Papermon if you have completed one or two! I may consider it if you want to use a previous Pokemon paperchild you made in the past, but please ask me first.
:bulletwhite: Most importantly of all, have fun making them!
