Realistic Emboar by Phill-Art Realistic Emboar by Phill-Art
Pokemon Folder- phill-art.deviantart.com/galle…

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!)

Why do we need so many fire/fighting pokemon?

I think it was to deal with the Rock-type weakness, since the early Gyms were often Rock-type Gyms, or there would be Rock-types early on.

but the gym leaders in Pokemon black and white don't use rock types so they didn't have to make Tepigs evolutions part fighting.

True. I guess they just felt the combination worked for the Pokemon.

Yeah I guess because fire/fighting is a fun word to say but they say the new fire starters evolutions might be part dark:)

HOLY CRAP THIS IS PURE AWESOMENESS!

I agree, I like realistic Pokemon that are actually true to their drawn form. Great job with the details :)

Great work! :)
Your approach of sticking closely to the pokemon's original design is the one I like to take when drawing them realistic, too
