Pokémon Art Academy box art cover

print No Printable Available

New box!

I've had this on the backburner for a while, and I've been wanting to make some boxart for a while now, so I might as well bring it back to life, wake me up, wake me up inside, can't wake up. From what I've seen, Pokémon Art Academy seems like a fun little game, it's basically not more than a teaching tool to draw Pokémon, but I don't know, it's interesting to me.

As always, constructive criticism is welcome and huge thanks to Higashi89, TheTombRaider, murtn32, super-mega-hyper-sonic, Mub, Paper and Matknapers18 for their help and feedback on the forums, it's greatly appreciated. Also, credit to woopwoop11 for his template, and to the artists who made the artworks featured on the front: Ashley, Gosha, Mireil and Xime, winners of the Pokémon Art Academy competition, as well as AsianMixMaster on Reddit and susanlucariofan16 on deviantArt.

Hope you guys like it! :)

This looks great. I love the splash of color. Though, I'm wondering if the outline on the back around the teacher was smaller if that would be better? It's a bit distracting right now.

I think i would of given the pikachu on the front a paintbrush or a tiny beret or something that makes him look more arty.

I dig the design though, the colours and layout are really nice and fits the game perfectly. good stuff franco.

Thanks, Paper! I did try to give it some sort of effect but I'll see if I can make it a bit more paintbrushed. :D

Well, I'm fucking stupid. I just realized you were talking about adding an object to the Pikachu on the front, and not about the texture. Thankfully I double-checked here before updating.

Absolutely love it! I would update it with some text in the back ESRB but other than that it's flawless! Fav+

Thanks, Steve! I looked up online to see if it had some sort of specification on the back, but I didn't find one, I'll see what I can do, though. :D

Hmm, never seen that creature on the front cover. You should have used a more popular Pokémon such as Aron, Jumpluff or Smeargle.

I wanted to go a bit obscure with this one, personally. I know it isn't the first thing you'd associate with Pokémon, but I think it looks fine.

@FrankBedbroken In all seriousness I'll see you once this hits hall. If there is one thing I could say is that maybe the pictures would look cool if they were taped in place on the front but maybe that would look a bit tacky (get it, it's a pun i'm so funny)

@Sarashi Hahaha, thanks, Sara! I personally don't see this getting to HoF soon, but eh, who knows. :D

that front is killer! i also love the back, but damn, that front. the only thing that's a little annoying is the empty esrb on the back, but aside from that minor nitpick, it's really awesome.

Thanks, Nathan! As I said before, I didn't find a specification for the rating, but I'll see what I can do. :D

Alright, here's an update, fixed the stroke on the professor in the back and added a beret to the Pikachu on the front. Hope you guys like it! :)

Just imagine how funny would it be: the first print of the box is pikachu w/o the beret and the new print has it with the beret, the version with the beret costing +$100 dollars just because Pikachu is using a beret like rofl
