It was hard to pick between Bulbasaur or Squirtle, but well, the one that looks easier first, is the rule, so Bulbasaur. I admit it was a bit harder than I thought but I didn't feel lost at any moment, which is a win.

And here is how she made the Bulbasaur bulb:
Screenshot from the video above.

Some final renders!
