I made this fluffy white dragon last summer and was inspired to name it after Ken Sugimori, he designed and drew all of the original 151 Pokémon himself!

I have always really liked how he drew pokemon and I still have many of the trading cards with his art. My favorite!

So now that you have been introduced, here are my drawings:

Sugimori, the dragon, is a mythical cloud dragon who is seen as a mist by humans. He “eats” moisture from the air through his fur and flies around humming to himself, never opening his mouth… because he doesn’t really have one.

He is clearly in a hurry, floating off to someplace.

Here he is resting on a mountain and valley, while at the same time he absorbs the mist from a nearby river. So sleepy. Of course to us humans, he would only appear to be morning fog.

NOW! For some pictures of Lisa with Sugimori 😀
