    Default Serebii's Pokémon Art Academy Discovery Thread

    The new game, Pokémon Art Academy, is out on the eShop in Japan tomorrow, and as usual we will be covering the game in full.

    This thread will have all the minor things I discover as playing through the game, which may not necessarily warrant posting directly on the site, though keep an eye there too

    Discuss what is found here: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...9#post17235779

    When you go through all the courses in each rank, you have a final exam to complete.

    Incidentally, each tutorial has the most adorable artwork

    Novice Course 3: Togepi, Pachirisu, Pichu, Gengar
    Learn about drawing full Pokémon and having different outline colours

    After completion, Andry brings up what appears to be 8 guidelines on how to draw Pokémon, and gives real life TCG examples the first one I think is about being true to the source material as in don't draw Togepi as a square etc.

    The next course removes the template from you and gives you construction shapes to use as a base.

    #4: Be sure to draw as living creatures
    #5: Focus on your strengths
