I’ve always been a big fan of the artwork presented on pokemon cards above any other tcg. My personal favorite artists are Himeno, Kizuki, and of course Sugimori. Gotta say though, Kizuki takes the cake for my favorite art with this guy vvv
Goop Gas Attack!!
I’m interested to hear and see what artwork you guys all enjoy!! Please post!
Almost every arwork that was designed by either Ken Sugimori, Mitsuhiro Arita, Kagemaru Himeno or Hironobu Yoshida. These guys are geniuses, and they did an incredible job by converting the idea of pocket monsters into graphic account. What I appreciate most is when illustrations tell a story and not just picture the Pokemon with some random unrelated background. I don’t have one favorite card art so here are a few that I like best…
I don’t know how to paste photos, together but my 5 fave artworks off the top of my head- are:
neo holo ho-oh (that 1st holo ho-oh)
base set charizard
pink bedroom raichu (Japanese promo)
shaymii land form (holo from stormfront set - though it looks better with the Japanese glacidea flower as set symbol)
^ I don’t know what it is about that silly Slowpoke, but the card just does it for me on so many levels. The colours and design are perfect! The orange and purple were meant for each other, and the pink and yellow added in there just bring it all together. Oh and did I say Sugimori stock art
