    Wow, these are all amazing. I particularly like the Tyranitar stomping around in the field, it feels like the super powerful art Tyranitar deserves but never got.

    I had to login just to say how beautiful these are. I'm completely in awe . I don't even know how they can pick a winner, I'd print all of them, and I'd hire all of those artists

    I want to like all but the Genesect firing like the second one? Is my fave. I can't imagine what they look like as a TCG one. Charizard #7 looks have the Promo card potential.

    The one with Charizard helping Timburr is the best.

    Amazing art. The only real axiom on which any of them can score lower is that they're "unfitting for the TCG", and that's possibly just because we haven't seen anything like them before. That said, some of the pieces definitely focus too much on certain parts of the Pokemon, or just cover them with so many effect that they'd look unappealing on the card. My choices are:
    Genesect #3
    Zacian #2
    Tyranitar #3
    Pikachu #5 (but the felt one is also very cute)
    Milotic #5 (or #1)
    Wishiwashi #4 (tough choice though)
    Charizard #9
    Lucario #6
     
  14. Clam Almost decent

    I love this one too. I don't know if it'll win because it needs to be "cool" but this artwork is really special.
