Concept Art

Does anyone know where I can find the character concept art of his for movies 1-3? I have from 4 on, but...--BJG

TCG illustrations

The article mentions that Ken Sugimori has illustrated for the TCG, and while this is partially true, it's been worded in a way that sounds like he draws new art for the TCG, and that really isn't the case at all. In nearly every card I've seen where he was credited, the artwork merely reuses stock artwork that he had drawn for the games. There is almost never any new artwork that he had drawn solely for the TCG. The only one that I can think of is "Professor Elm's Training Method", but for all we know, maybe that could have also originally been game artwork.

If he did drew artwork solely for the TCG, then okay, but the majority of the cards he's credited in merely reuses his artwork as stock. They should be mentioned somewhere. Rai Marshall 00:29, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Example 1, example 2. I can find more if you'd like. MaverickNate 00:39, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Okay, we have those. But what about the 90% of other cards that merely reuses his artwork as stock? That should still be mentioned somewhere. Rai Marshall 00:40, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
