These quilled Pokemon art pieces create very realistic images of the Pokemon in a way that hasn't been seen before. While Pokemon art has been done and re-done since the inception of the series and brand, these quilled Pokemon bring originality to the franchise.
The art of quilling is an art that not many know of. It involves using rolled up pieces of paper to create images. In the case of deviantART member Wholedwarf the images happen to be some of the original 150 Pokemon. From Squirtle to Nidoking, the quilling remains true to the original form of the Pokemon it's being use to emulate.
When looked at from afar, it even looks like a flat image or painting of the Pokemon rather than a complex spiraling array of colored paper.
