I always wanted to design pokemon in a realistic way, it's a fun challenge. I didn't want to go the approach :iconarvalis: did, where some of his realistic pokemon designs drifted from the original look of the pokemon too much, but I still appreciate his work. Plus it's more challenging keeping loyal to their original look, especially for the pokemon that don't look like any animals in the real world.

(Many more designs to come!)

your work is pretty refreshing, i like your take on pokemon
and the artist that you mentioned, some of his work is really cool the rest is just too far from the original pokemon, his giratina bugged me the most since its a centipede but in the descriptions its a half scorpion half centipede Dragon and what his work is HIT or MISS but he IS really talented...
But yours is pretty fantastic, i hope i master the digital drawing as much as my real drawing then i can do amazing stuff like you do
I like this one the most and druddigon too, i hope you do more since you stay true to the real versions...

if you do any more AFTER this comment pls consider minun/plusle, toxicroak, granbull or stoutland....those are my favourite pokés and I bet they would look amazing in a realistic view!
Please keep up the good work!

He really is a great artist, but yea, some of his stuff just bothers me to no end... Thank you for the comment, you should post some of your work!

I totally agree with you.  Arvalis has some amazing talent, but that Gengar line...nope

I like Bastiodon though!

Yea him and I talked a bit on our different approaches. He said he was going more for poke 'animals' rather than monsters. He's made some very clever designs, but I still don't really dig that style over all. Thanks for the comment!
