-Reshiram- by arvalis -Reshiram- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Commission for :icongifted-monster:

I thought it would be cool to portray Reshiram as sort a proto-bird. Maybe as like an ancestor to Ho-oh is what I was thinking. He has been adorned with silver bangles which he was worshipped by. He is considerably less mammalian than you may be accustomed to, but I thought it would look strange if I threw a goat head on a dinosaur bird body. Alternative title for the paleo art aficionados could be Macroraptor

Oh Wow Cool! But if what you say is true, what are the visible mammal traits on Reshiram ? I couldn't find them!

I know this is getting a bit older now, but I still come across it every once in a while and have to stop and admire it because you somehow managed to turn Reshiram, arguably the best dragon of Unova, into something even greater. You really captured its power and elegance, and I love the concept of it being some kind of massive prehistoric bird or raptor. Truly magnificent.

I caught Reshiram in Pokemon Black!
I know, that's not much of an accomplishment to brag about, but I felt like bringing it up anyway! I paralyzed her with my Archeops first, then threw the Master Ball just in case.

I love the more dragon-like design. Recently, I've been doing research for a personal project on whether dragons in the real world would have feathers. I haven't got any real satisfactory results, that it really depends if dragons are related to dinosaurs or not. What do you think about dragons and feathers?

But I can imagine he would be too difficult or look erratic...
