I made these shoes in July 2009, for my friend Krista’s birthday. Earlier in the summer we had spent an embarrassing amount of time watching Pokemon movies together (remember the part where Pikachu cries because Ash is turned to stone? A truly devastating moment, that was), so I decided to paint a crapton of Pokemon onto shoes.
AND THE PROCESS WAS EXACTLY THE SAME AS BEFORE (this is not yelling, this is simply enthusiasm). Simple pimple. So, watch as I violate many copyrights:
This is one of my favorite pairs, although I think it’s less fun drawing characters that other people have made. I don’t remember if I learned any major shoe-related lessons from this pair. I think it was mostly smooth sailing. They did take quite a bit of time though, probably about 15 hours, since they are slightly more detailed than the previous ones.
