November 2016 Challenge of the Month



November 17th 2016


Create an illustration (Traditional OR Digital) showing a ‘mashup’ design of TWO of the original 151 Pokémon. You may ONLY show ONE ‘mashup’ Pokémon, though you may include other Pokémon or people in the scene, the central focus must be the ‘mashup’ character. Pieces will be judged on the creativity of their mashup, the ambition of the piece, as well as technical proficiency in creating their illustration.

Submissions must include the names of the two original Pokémon that have been combined to create their mashup design, in the title of their entry.

PLEASE NOTE: I am aware there are many Pokémon ‘mashup’ designs out there already, based often on the Pokémon Fusion website, as a result the WIP image required for your entry to be entered (see rules below) will be strictly enforced – NO artwork stolen or altered from somebody else will be allowed into the competition. You work must be 100% original.



Upload your finished artwork to the Art Portal

TAG your artwork with the word PokeMashupChallenge’
(That’s it! Scouted or unscouted, I will find your entry,
as long as you tag it
with the exact word above)
