Charizard Orthographic by arvalis Charizard Orthographic by arvalis

A lot of people have been asking to model some of my realistic Pokemon designs.  So I threw together a quick orthographic to help any would-be modelers.  You don't have to ask my permission to model him, just make sure to show me.  I absolutely love seeing my designs come to life in 3D.

It's a strait up Dragon design.
But at least the mega evolutions fix that.

A few questions:
If you did magnemite would you make it robotic or natural?
Will you do any more orthographics?

I think it could be a hybrid. Having the area around the eyes looking organic but slowly getting covered by the metal, having the magnet attachment points looking organic and the area where they fuse together looking part organic, part metallic as it stretches.

This would not take me 2-3 hours, this would take forever. I love your design of the mighty beast, Charizard. When I see the profile of his head, however, I get some Skyrim vibes (mostly because I've been obsessed with the game lately, probably). I would so die to see some Skyrim stuff from you, even if they were just doodles AMAZING job!! :)

Wait, in the series, can Charizard actually fly with wings that narrow? It seems like a heavy uh...crocodilian...and um, I barely remember much of the series now, just FYI in case it sounded like a stupid question.

:iconarvalis:
arvalis Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah these wings would be much too small for flight but I always felt small wings are part of charizard's aesthetic much like dragonite.  If you greatly increase the wing size it just looks like some random dragon and not charizard to me.

Then I imagine that the wings would be used more for mating rituals or possibly short distance gliding, their origins stemming from evolving from a species that could fly but eventually lost that ability, making the wings a vestigial appendage. If you include mega evolutions in your work then it'd stand to reason that the Y version of charizard would gain large enough wings to truly fly, while the X would instead focus on increasing internal body temperature to let loose dragon flame. Honestly I'm just rambling at this point, your work is amazing and it gets me thinking.

I'd imagine that  this version of charizard would be similar to bears in locomotion mostly walking quadruped and occasional walking bipedal.

Out of curiosity what would you say the skeletal and musculature structure of your Charizard looks like? I've been following you for a while now and love everything you've put out, especially this (still excited for your Mega Evolution versions ((not the Monster hunter ones though that series was awesome))). This piece more than any is super helpful to me in the sense that I've been creating and drawing my own pokemon with my girlfriend and seeing it like this has already shown me some places i can definitely improve upon ( trying to go realistic pokemon but still kinda cartoony style, seeing how you draw them in the Orthographic showed me ways i can do that better so thanks :D)
Anyway keep up the awesome work!!!
