I can't be the only one who completed a grand trial or a regional pokedex in Sun&Moon and looked at the new stamp in my passport all like "Wow man, that's some damn good art right there."
And that is the story of how I ended up spending two whole days on these babies. There is no HD version of those passport stamps, so the pixelated, blurry and messy screen captures are the only cohesive thing Nintendo is offering us fans who love these designs. I said fuck that and decided to take some screenshots and then trace and vectorize the stamps in printable resolution. Also worn watercolor texture is lovely (although workful) to apply~

I know they're not my designs. But people have shown a lot of interest in high quality versions of the stamps yet no one has been skilled or motivated enough to actually do the work of refining them into better resolution AND keep the traditional style of the originals.
So I vectorized the geometric parts of the designs and hand drew over the characters and smaller details.  I made sure the symmetrical stamps were actually symmetrical. Added details the tapus have but the stamp art didn't have. Interpreted the torn and messy parts of the originals to have the best result in HD. Fixed the colors for each stamp to be in harmony with the other colors in the stamp, instead of going with the over saturated orange they share on the game screen. And let's not even talk about tailoring a matching texture for the watercolor surface and worn out parts.
So yes, they're not originally my designs but what you are looking at is my art and the result of my skills and patience.

And no I did not make these for just myself to enjoy. :aww: GO BUY A SHIRT OR SOMETHING FROM MY REDBUBBLE RIGHT NOW ->> www.redbubble.com/people/skudd…
