This Is What Pokémon Would Look Like In Real Life

Joshua Dunlop is both a Pokémon master and an artist. And for his latest series, Dunlop shows us what Pokémon would look like if they existed in real life.

Titled ‘Pokémon Zoology’, the series features fascinating depictions of all your favorite characters. Discover everything from ‘Bulbasaur’ to ‘Squirtle’, ‘Charmander’ and 'Pikachu'.

“I originally sketched out some rough ideas in Photoshop, using real life animals as reference. Once I was happy, I used a 3D program called 3D-Coat to build and texture the model,” Dunlop tells Mashable.

“I then brought the model into a rendering program called KeyShot which allowed me to get realistic lighting and effects…Finally I brought everything into Photoshop and built the images using a combination of photo-manipulation and digital painting. It takes a while but it’s a lot of fun when you see the finished product.”

“After watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and seeing the fantastic creatures they had brought to life, I was inspired to try and do just that.”

Excited to see more Pokémon brought to life? Dunlop plans to expand the project and, eventually, "catch 'em all".

"I'm actually looking into possibly making a fan website focusing on Pokémon Zoology. Looking at their diets, habitats, breeding and training, accompanied by my 3D and Digital Artwork," he says

“I think it would be a great project and would be happy to work with anyone willing to help (starting with a web designer).”

We hope to see that fan website soon!
