Pokémon – Poffins

Oh, Pokémon. How many times can you essentially release the exact same game over and over and how many times will I relive the experience, just to be bitterly disappointed by any new species that isn’t the original 150 (or 151 depending on who you ask). I mean, apart from Girafarig who is the best Pokémon of the new generations. Shut up. Anyway, Pokémon love Poffins. They can make them smarter, better, faster, stronger… As a combination of the words Pokémon and muffin I figured this had to be something soft and slightly sweet (just like the Pokémon themselves). I did a lot of research into cakes and breads and came across the delightful anpan from Japan - a type of sweet, milky bun. The classic anpan recipe was the perfect base to create the well known light and fluffy Poffin.

Request: Pokémon – Lava Cookies

Lavaridge Town’s speciality, and now a Gourmet Gaming speciality too! Originally, the Lava Cookie is referred to as a “rice cracker” which frankly doesn’t sound too exciting, so I turned to the awesome poké visual appeal of this trusty status heal for inspiration. Combining the idea of an Asian “rice cracker” and a “cookie”, I was pleasantly surprised by my rash decision to create the Lava Cookie as an “East meets West” fusion of strong, bitter chocolate chips and aromatic, salty nori in a sweet and chewy all-American cookie. Perfectly restoring and unusually delicious, for pokémon and trainer alike.

So I found this comment shazams

I’ll be honest… that is pretty disrespectful. Or maybe not that. Maybe it’s just straight up ignorance. 80 isn’t even half of what Nova pays me for a 1-2 minute animation.

It’s because of stuff like THIS  that way too many artists are under paid and devalue their work. Because so many people don’t understand the amount of work and time that goes into any art piece. Whether it’s animation or illustration.

I’ll do the math for you so you know why this kinda ticks me off. On average I spend about 30-40 hours for a 1-2 minute animation. Now this video is about 11.5 minutes long so I would most likely spend about 345 hours on it if not more. That would be about 14 days straight if I work with no sleep, breaks, eating, etc. Just working non stop. Now if I only made 80 dollars from this and worked 345 hours I would be making about 0.23 for every hour that I worked.

0.23

I’ll be getting your pocket change for an hours worth of work.

This is the problem many artists are faced with. And it is extremely sad and frustrating.
