As a fan of Pokémon throughout my childhood, I've always been intrigued by the unique characteristics of each little creature, in particular how their traits might translate if they were somehow converted into human form — and I know I'm not the only one.
Pokémon cosplay is not uncommon, especially the humanized kind (officially termed 'gijinka'), and fan art has been popping up all over the place. I was particularly taken with these gorgeous illustrations by DeviantArt artist, Tamtamdi, who creates cool and super-colorful designs that are perfect for cosplay inspiration. Check some of them out below.
The talented illustrator behind the artwork told me she is actually a character designer and was looking for a daily challenge she could use to hone her skill. New creations are appearing almost every day on her DeviantArt, Facebook and Tumblr profiles so be sure to check them out.
