I don't really know what to say about this artwork. I've come across countless of amazing artists on DA, and you're one of them. I truly do admire and look up to everyone I've started to follow, and those who've I've Favorited their artwork. Please continue on doing so with your artwork. I love what you did with each Pokemon as an individual. All the details and effects put into each Pokemon to describe their attitudes and how pumped up they are. Very fitting for a team and for you as the artist. Good ups. Keep it up!!! :D :D
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
46 out of 49 deviants thought this was fair.

I admire your personal touch as well as the appeal of your work. The design has a great impact and portrays a more realistic look to Poke'mon, one that's not always seen.

The detail is great and really adds to the appeal, and gives great attraction to the technique. The scene is also visually appealing but the lighting isn't very distinct. Your sizing is questionable, considering the size and shape of the trainer in the center.

The shading is done well, but the colors are a little flat, and your color merging is very sudden. It should be a more subtle change.

The trainer seams to be a little disproportional. Distinctly in the head and arms.

It's an over all great piece, and is done with good attention on your part. I also love your flame effect for Charizard's tail.

I actually ran into a Fire Red with a perfect attack and speed IV shiny Charmander in its save file. So now I have good ol' Pride to follow me around in my adventures ^^ I really like the battle scars you put on them, it adds a lot of reality to the creatures. As if the beautiful lineart didn't already.

Wolfjaw42 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Amazing picture! Tyrannitar, Garchomp, and Charizard are all in my top ten.
Robrockstar96 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
like your design for charizard. it makes him look a lot more like a dragon then in the games.
doomedarts Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Hey, I liked a lot your realistic pokemon. I actually spent quite some time browsing through your work. I have a drawing of me with some of my faves, but it's not six, it's 4 + 1... (I had to have one free slot for catching the 5th and could not decide for the 6th... lol)

Go to [link] if you want to check it out. I'd be glad to exchange links if you like it.

Chalxsion Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nice, this is epic
Robrockstar96 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012
I think I might just make one, though it probably won't show up for a while
AzureBalmonk Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
You draw pokemon extremely well. I really liked going through your images, my one comment isn't enough to reflect the time I've spent looking through these and your other photos. A cool team I think you could draw really well could be Charizard, Tyranitar, Salamence, Feraligatr, Sceptile, and Aggron. You seem to draw dragons/monsters really well so I just think you could make that one work. Keep up the good work.

So awesome
yokogreyword Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
woaaah! I honestly, just... WOAH! I love how you've got the pokeballs on your belt. It's original but makes for easy access still. And your style sort of reminds me of japanese wall scrolls or ukiyo-e paintings or something like that.
And now I'm trying to decide whether or not I could take your team and on what version. >.<
AnimeLoverAimz Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012
Very beautifully done! :D Can I ask why you haven't evolved the bulbasaur? :) I have a Bulbasaur in my team and I am unsure whether to evolve her or not
Ryanjustbechill Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2012
i love how charizard is shiny.
