Draconic Showdown by chicoARTS Draconic Showdown by chicoARTS
I might not be the best fan out there but I wanted to make a tribute to Yamashita-akaDoragon's last video update. Go watch it. It's absolutely amazing!! (10 months worth of work)

As for how this cover(?) art came to be... Guess who put the video on loop for 2 days straight :'D

Yamashita made a cover for the video and it looked great. So I wanted to give it a go myself. The painting was challenging because it's hard to put two massive Pokémon together. I did some thumbnails because I wasn't satisfied with the first idea I had. So I ended up doing a bit of a compromise and zoomed more on the heads of the Pokémon so the trainers could actually be seen. Otherwise, it would be just general Pokémon fanart of Reshiram/Zekrom lol

I took some artistic license with N and Theo but for the most part Zekrom's and especially Reshiram's looks were based on Yamashita's illustrations. I took several screenshots of the video and had official refs at hand. And Theo is half-nude because of epicness. I think that Yamashita's dirty mind will appreciate that.
Hentai is real.

What else... uh... the rest was render, render, render. And SFX! So yeah, I hope I could capture the feeling of the music and the action of the scenes. Hope you like it! (I personally love how it turned out.)

I always assumed Reshiram would win...for personal reasons. However, they are both much stronger when battling together.

I don't think writing the wrong word counts as a typo, though...
And just by the way, this "typo" of yours was very offensive to me. :/

Sorry Sweating a little... As I said, wasn't intentional. I'll try to be more careful next time.

Great job! I hope you'll do more action scenes someday! Are you open to suggestions? I'd love to see you draw some Pokemon in your style like Futachimaru or Daikenki in your art style doing something cool with their blades~ it's up to you again I'm making a suggestion^^ Keep up the great work!

Oh. My. God.
I had to sit and think a couple minutes what to say because the more I looked at this, my brain slowly stopped from working and I was laughing. Congrats, you broke me with this :'D

Seriously, though. It's so overly badass I'm not even sure if it's epic or ridiculous. Maybe it's both. Man, my brain is still having a meltdown.
Okay, positives. The amount of detail you put here is crazy and coloring absolutely lovely. The way you used red here in Zekrom's eye, Reshiram's Dragon Breath and the glow looks great, red is a color people easily mess up with so I always appreciate when it's done right. I already mentioned the details, but my favorite is definitely Reshiram's face and fur, they look so good. Specially Reshi's face, I love how ferocious and beast-like you managed to make it!
Also, can I say I find it funny how N looks like Jesus and Theo is just hulking out (which is so out of character but still makes me laugh)? :'D

Overall, this is awesome and I can't thank you enough for making it!

Also why would you think I'd appreciate Theo without a shit. I've got some people telling me they find him attractive and I just can't see it at all. ._.

hahahaha omg sorry about that :'D

I love using red in my paintings! Initially I wasn't going to give Reshi the dragon breath but I needed one more source of light. If I were to describe this Reshiram, it would be like the dragon of The NeverEnding Story with a dash of Monster Hunter.

oh yeah, I don't find him that handsome either. In fact, I had to do some sketches of him to see how I would illustrate him (which traits to emphasize). I also needed some colour to contrast the whiteness of Reshiram. I was thinking on giving him a coat instead of the shirt but at the end I chose the rough looks. How he lost his shirt is a mystery tho heh

Thank you for being an inspiration! <3

Huh, cool. I am not familiar with The Neverending Story (tho I know what the white dragon looks like and I can see it now) or Monster Hunter, so I couldn't know.

Also I am not attracted to males as far as I'm aware of so I have no idea. :'P

Oh and by the way, this gave me an idea and if I end up drawing it I am going to blame you for it. So beware :'D
