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

Funny because I've always seen Reshiram as a velociraptor-like Pokemon. Though, he would've also looked cool if he looked a bit like Haku from Spirited Away.

The feathery touch really fits Reshiram perfectly, and I really like how you made this.

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.
