Game Freak’s Pulseman illustration video now Western friendly with English subtitles

Recommended Posts

If you’re a regular visitor to our little SEGA corner of the internet, you probably like to revisit some titles that you might have missed in the 90s and it seems that Game Freak’s Pulseman was pretty slept on in the 90s.

The video above has Pulseman director Ken Sugimori drawing Pulseman as he gives details into the character’s creation, what inspired him and why they made him as a direct opposition to Sonic the Hedgehog‘s design. Kind of funny that Ken Sugimori says that Sonic the Hedgehog had a ‘western look’ when I felt like Sonic the Hedgehog was a mix of classic Mickey/Felix the Cat mixed with a Japanese twist. But I guess Ken is right, its quite obvious that Sonic was inspired by early American mascot cartoons.

Love Ken Sugimori’s Mega Drive jacket. Very cool.

Esse é o meu sonho de consumo, ter uma Wacom Cintiq igual a essa que o cara está usando pra desenhar o Pulseman...por enquanto me viro bem com a Wacom Intuos que tenho aqui, mas uma Cintiq dessas, é a experiência mais próxima de se desenhar e pintar como se fosse no papel!
