Drawn by: Joe A.
Joe’s Grading: C
In case you never noticed, Ekans is just the word snake backwards. Had Joe truly been witty when drawing Ekans, he would have tried to draw it backwards one way or another, just to fit the name. Ekans may not have received a high grade, but it was one of the Pokémon that was a turning point in Joe’s Pokémon drawing ability. He began to include more shading and improve on tricky features like eyes. Fun fact with this drawing, if you look close enough you can almost see Joe’s smudged fingerprints!
