Woke up this morning and decided to browse Serebii.net just to catch up on the Pokemon of the week. I don't really play the game all that much anymore, but I do like to check up on any new developments.
I was actually pretty surprised to learn that Gen 6 of Pokemon has been announced for the 3DS, plus it will be getting a worldwide release in October.
Initially, I wasn't that interested. I've had my fill of Pokemon during the past 5 gens and I don't really feel like catching them all once again. The new starters looked pretty meh. Chespin? Mmkay. Froakie? lol wut!
Then I saw Fennekin [link]
I dunno why. It's probably because of my interest in foxes, but I really liked it's design and immediately felt compelled to draw it. Albeit in the way I do best. Nekki anthro form. It took me only about 3-4 hours tops to get this done. Also, it marks one of the first images where I inked it completely freehand with my new tablet instead of using the linework tool.
I can see I'm not the only one who likes this new starter Pokemon because within the last few hours, DA and FA have been flooded with pictures of it. I can only imagine what its evolved forms look like.
Zoroark? Forget about it.
Fennekin? Oh yes!
Oh, and the game previews are looking pretty good too. I may just check out the new gen after all. Curse you, Nintendo!
