Realistic Hydreigon by Phill-Art Realistic Hydreigon 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!)

This looks amazing!! Definitely the best Hydreigon fanart that I've seen, and a wonderful blend of realism and keeping to the original design. It also looks terrifying, but that's the way it should be :)

This, my good man, is awesome. Hydreigon is one of my favourite Pokémon of all time and certainly my favourite pseudo-legendary. I love how you're able to draw these and somehow make them look realistic without deviating too much from the original design.

Congratulations, I am watching the crap outta you.

That is the best Hydreigon draing I've ever seen.  It really reminds me of the dementors in Harry Potter.  I've always loved Hydreigon, and I feel this drawing really brings out the creepiness and darkness of this Pokemon.  This drawing looks terrifying, appropriately.

That is just freaking awesome, I love it! I just think the 'feet' look a tad strange.

Phill-Art Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
A couple people have said that... I might fix it, even though they don't seem like feet to me on the original pokemon lol.

:iconsuperartninja:
SuperArtNinja Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Student Filmographer
Yeah, I'm not sure what they are... I just assumed they were feet. :P It was the only logical explanation for what they could be as anatomically they make little sense.

Phill-Art Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
I don't think that many pokemon make sense anatomically X ) I figure it's a ghost, so it can just float around, like Haunter. They like weird flow-y flippers lol.

Yeah, but you can at least tell what they're thinking most of the time... Until they pull stuff like this and Latios and Latias... Curse their feet... Fluff... Things!
