Ever wondered how Shellder or Snorlax would look if they were human? Hold on tight because South Korean illustration artist Tamtamdi currently based in California, U.S. reimagines Pokémon as humans (more or less) and it's just as cute as you'd expect it to be.

The incredibly talented artist who prefers to stay anonymous has already drawn 254 Pokémon Gijinka illustrations, giving each and every one of them a specific character and distinguished looks. Tamtamdi told Bored Panda that it usually takes 30 min - 1 hour to finish one drawing. "The most important thing I care when I do the gijinka is capturing the first impression of the pokemon, and then the silhouette and the gesture!" said the artist. "Sometimes I just use them as a fashion reference," Tamtamdi added. It took about a year to draw them all and it looks like the artist is still going!
