Here's my entry for Jazza's Pokemon Mashup Contest! This one took awhile and I'm frankly very proud haha. This is one of the best things I've made in awhile. Good luck everyone <3
There's the WIP ^^^^


You need to write the names of the two Pokémon you combined in the title!

I love the design of the character. Using two very unique and powerful Pokémon while still maintaining their individual aspects into a single illustration is commendable.

I do however see many issues while anatomy. Such as the positions of the arms, legs, torso and thorax in relation to angles joint locations. Ex. The left leg (portrait left) where the thorax and the thigh connect, should be further back in space if you are basing it on the center line set by the angles in the waist. The same can be said for the shoulder. When dealign with hominid life forms they follow an angle rule. If the shoulders are heading in one directional angle. ex. o/--\= The shoulders are pointing down, so the hips will do a opposite or mirrored angle to compensate.

And since this character is facing us at a slight angle, but is standing straight. The left hip/leg join should not be sitting lower than the right especially since the "knees" are sitting flush. (Note* as I look at it longer, I notice that the hip/leg joint is not lower, but is simply not al large as the one on the right. Design? or mistake?)

Then you have the angle of the chest, which is fine and looks great. But the location of the left shoulder is off.

Again the design is awesome, and unique. The line art is fantastic. Overall its a fantastic piece, I only give this 3.5 stars because of the anatomy issues. If the anatomy was fixed/edited this is easily a 4-4.5 star illustration. You have a bright future ahead of you. Keep up the good work.

wow thanks alot haha xD yeah, I'd say anatomy and working with objects and things in a 3d environment rather then 2d is my biggest weakness right now.

I really like the character design, awesome :) but I don't understand why did you use red as background for a flying pokemon type. I think blue would be better (and then something more purple on the poison side, or at least something less "spacey")

Braivety responds:

oh that had nothing to do with the types lol, it's just for sun and moon. I sort of put nidoking on the purply side because he's purple, but other then that it wasn't supposed to go with the typing cx

Very pokemonly. Love it
