When I first looked at this piece, I was skeptical. True, the "ice cream" evolutionary line is nearly impossible to make realistic, but when I imagined them as realistic, I never envisioned floating conch shells.

So when I saw this, I wasn't sure what I thought of it at first. I couldn't decide if it was just creative enough to be ingenious, or if it was just too weird. But after digging into the design a little bit, I decided that this really was an incredibly unique take on these Pokemon.

They are obviously extremely original. No question there. And impactful. I walked away from this design thinking, "Wow. Now there's someone who looks at one thing, can turn it into something almost completely different, and yet connect the two almost seamlessly."

Now, the design is not without flaws. The colors are a bit off, the purple and yellow, namely. And the shape of these creatures is just a little bit too jagged...not exactly parallel to the original Pokemon. However, that being said, this remains a powerful and overwhelmingly creative piece. Well done.
What do you think?

creepy faces, I say that people who make realistic pokemon have a good sense of mixing real objects with fantasy

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00am. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

I actually favourited this because  was so impressed with your ability to portray even the more ridiculous, "sub-par" Pokemon as realistic and incredible creatures.

I normally don't like it when "realistic" depictions of Pokemon stray too far from the original design, but this and your depiction of the Gigalith line are just so out there and creative, that you've completely sold me on them.  Great work!

I always found there was something fun in making everyday objects into creatures, so the Ice-cream cones were a great challenge. Once I got the shape, the rest of the design was quite easy.

You could've substituted those earthy tones that carry from the middles of the cones to their tips with white, lighter coloring.

I mean come ON dude, they're already somewhat covered with frost. All you'd have to do is encase the upper parts. And don't get me started on the fact that there are plenty of spiral shells that have white and brown tones.

Ultyzarus Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, could have gone with a coloration gradient. I though that the spiral retaining a layer of snow was a more original idea.

I honestly like Vanilluxe. He looks like an ice cream pokemon but technically he isn't. He has a better design than Muk,Magnemite and Mr.Mime. This picture is freaking creepy but is totally awesome.
