-Charizard- by arvalis -Charizard- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE

EDIT
My Charizards do not normally rear fully upright like this. There head is usually held lower and as such are measured at the shoulder, making them 5'7". The trainer is around 6' or so.

Though Bulbasaur has always been my favorite Pokemon, Charizard has always been my favorite fully evolved starter. I even had a Charizard Pokemon card back when that was a big deal. I wanted to make sure he looked reptilian not saurischian, so I pulled design elements exclusively from reptiles. You guys should definitely check out a Kaprosuchus, it certainly wouldn't be a boar. I also made sure to add little wing nubs on the pre-evs so that its not as jarring a transition. As Charizards get older, more or their tail envelops in flame. When a Charizard reaches an old enough age it will completely ignite and burn itself to ash. There are responsible for the occasional brush fire.

Although I was never a fan of the hexapod dragons, charizard one of my favorite (maybe I personifies mine later). I loved the design of the head, Congragulations! :D 
By the way, in the new movie "Detective Pikachu" they use the same model of the lit tail like-yours instead of a floating flame at the end.
By last, is it hair what it has on the edge of its wings?

That Charmander though, his body language has this whole like; "This is mine! and nobody else can have it!" vibe. Made me laugh.

The same person who could see an obvious ghost as a bat (gastly line). Or an obvious dog as a tiger (growlithe line). Or can't tell that Scyther is a mantis. Also my comment was a joke.

...k...? The reasoning behind the “ghosts as bats and insects” and “ice Elementals/plants as animals” thing was that we don’t really have any Elementals or walking dead / ambulatory plants in real life. He was trying to provide a rational explanation for their imagined appearances.

The drawing of the pokemon looks amazing, but you made Charizard too large when compared to the clearly adult sized trainer. 5ft 7in isn't very tall. lol

If Elderly Charizards burn to ashes like the legendary Phoenix at the end of their lives (without coming back from their ashes as babies), then I guess the Mandibuzz (the vulture pokemon) won't be able to devour the Charizard's carcass. No wonder vultures don't eat their food cooked. LOL. Get it? Because vultures eat dead animals raw like all carnivores, omnivores, and scavengers. But more importantly, vultures eat carcasses not only to survive, but also to prevent the corpse's flesh from going to waste before scavenging arthropods like flies start dining on the remaining leftovers (along with the bones depending what kind of insect can slowly bite into bone).
