The fact that they are crustaceans just blows my mind. I've never seen something like this before. The art style is perfect and you wish you could have one of these. I could not agree with that more. Thank you. ASD FGH JKL ADSSDFGH DFGHJDFGHJK1! That means thanks to you very very veyr very very very very very very very very very very very very much. MUCHO GRACIAS! This has been the most wondrous thing i have ever ever ever ever ever ever seen in my entire life. thank you very very very very very very much. i love your work.
I for one, wholeheartedly agree with the crustacean interpretation. Scientifically speaking, many invertebrates make their shells out of minerals, especially calcite and other materials that are water soluble. Hence, it is a rock type that is weak to water.
Because I wanted to go with a more life-like biological approach. The only animal that could fit the looks of Roggenrola (especailly having a hard shell) and live in a cave that wouldn't just look water-type was the woodlouse. I then imagined the evolutions from the same crustacean concept.
sorry this one i dont agree looks like the pokemon, the actual pokemon doesn look like seafish/lobsters ect..but i dont want you to think im ''trashing'' to work its still amazing and your work makes me want to look at pokemon XD *turn on show,,,turn off* *go back to your pics* lol
It took me a few hours I think. The first challenge was roggenrola. I wanted to use some cave-dwelling animal that wouldn't fall in the Bug Type, and came up with a woodlouse. Then Boldore came on its own. It was with Gigalith that I struggled the most. I had to go on with the crustacean theme, but had trouble with its head/face standing in the middle of the body rather than in front... So I imagined its mock-faced crest
love the Roggenrolla, absolutely perfect as well as a convincing organic design, I would have beefed up Boldore and Gigalith just a little to more closely resemble a rocky texture and done away with the crustacean limbs, or just make then smaller and vestigial and have the number of weight supporting limbs match the anime versions. very well done, amazing work
wow, this is amazing you captured these pokemon in a new light for me. seriously I cant stand the newer pokemon but if I could see more art like this I might just warm up to them. job well done looking forward to more
If you want to see new visions and interpretations of Pokemon, I suggest you visit my group: . It features various realistic versions and interpretations of Pokemon, even in the upcoming 6th Generation (We already have a gorgeous Xerneas).
i highly approve of your interpretation of the more geometric type pokemon. I've always had an issue with seeing them just as blocks, but you really deconstructed and reconstructed them and they look awesome!
