What if Pokemon were Human?

Are you familiar with Shellder the lovable water Pokemon? Or maybe you adore Snorlax, the humongous-but-cute looking cat who like sleeping a lot? Can you imagine if they become alive? What are they going to look like if they were human? Tamtamdi, a South Korean illustrator who currently bases in California, has reimagined Pokemon as humans and to some these human Pokemon look as cute as they might be.

Tamtamdi seems to prefer to stay anonymous even if he has already drawn a great number of Pokemon Gijinka illustrations. That outrageous number of drawing reaches up to 254 different Pokemon characters. And he gave each and every one of them a specific character and distinguished looks.

Bored Panda got a chance to ask him about his creations and he said that it usually takes 30 minutes to 1 hour to finish one drawing. “The most important thing I care when I do the gijinka is capturing the first impression of the pokemon, and then the silhouette and the gesture! Sometimes, I just use them as a fashion reference.”

Tamtamdi confirmed that it could take about a year to draw them all and it for sure he is still going to draw more.
