Pikachu was among sui's first illustrations

sui (Japanese: ) is a freelance digital illustrator who provides original illustrations for the Pokémon Trading Card Game, with her work debuting in the Arceus expansion. She has also produced an array of illustrations featured in a number of publications, such as guidebooks and CD covers. Sui specializes in depicting fantasy-scenes and animals, and includes animals and gaming among her interests. She particularly likes producing images that have a sense of motion. Sui also indulges in fan-art, which feature characters from many established Nintendo franchises.

sui uses a graphics tablet and a number of image editing software suites for her illustrations, which are created in an airbrush style. She uses areas of highly saturated color and luminosity in her work, resulting in vibrant, atmospheric, and serene images. Light is emphasized in almost all of her original work. Environments often incorporate elements of nature, as well as animals. Thus far, sui has illustrated 187 cards for the TCG. For a list of cards she has illustrated, go here.
