E.S.G Art Series: Kitsuakari, Pokémon Digital Artist

Art- the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

The world of Pokémon is undoubtedly one of the most influential media franchises in the world today. Its reach spans to every corner of the globe and has inspired millions in the form of every medium of content and pop culture, including art. E.S.G. honors this creative expression as we feature a community of talented artists, illustrators, and creatives who have used their vast imaginations to create stunning esports and gaming related art.

In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Pokémon, E.S.G. will also celebrate and showcase the outstanding work from some who have dedicated much of their talent to the world’s largest media franchise. In this edition, we look at the work of digital artist Kitsuakari.

This doodle was an experimentation with a new style. Its simplicity is something I really enjoy. I tend to draw this way now when I just want to do something quick and simple. – Kitsu

It may be simplistic in style, but many times, so are the finer things in life. This creation of the magical fox Pokémon, Braixen, is simple in an undeniably beautiful way.

This piece was a commission! It gave me a chance to practice with environments and lighting and overall, it came out really well. – Kitsu

Sylveon is a fan favorite amongst the Eeveelutions in all its gloriousness and luxuriousness. Those crystalline blue eyes and colorful ribbons are portrayed wonderfully in this digital piece by Kitsu.

I felt like Skiddo needed more love cuz I never see any art of them. So, I whipped this up real quick and am really proud of how it turned out! – Kitsu

According to its Pokédex entry, Skiddos are thought to be one of the first Pokémon to live in harmony with people—you could understand why looking at that righteous smile. This is a product of Kitsu recognizing that the grass type gets no love, and that resulted in this stellar creation and a little bit of affection here on the Syft site.

{Art} is the one hobby that ever stuck with me! I went through a really tough time in 2015-2016 and this was the one thing to distract me from that. It brought me some positivity that I really needed. – Kitsu

This is a redraw of something I made last January. I’ve improved a lot in the past year and wanted to go back to something old and prove how much I’ve grown by redoing it. – Kitsu

The psychic Eeveelution Espeon is known for its extreme loyalty and keen sense of awareness. Kitsuakari is known for her extreme artistic talent and firm grasp on creating digital masterpieces such as this one.

This was done for Umbreon Day (February 7th). I got some more practice with lighting while doing this one. – Kitsu

This piece shows the bright side to the dark type Pokémon Umbreon. There are few Pokémon as charming as any of the Eeevelutions, and this creation is yet another dazzling display of their charm from Kitsu. Roses are red and violets are as blue as the shine on this Umbreon. All in all, what you’ve seen here are multiple displays of Kitsu’s talent as well as her mission to bring smiles to faces and make people happy. Mission accomplished.
