So I have seen many different fanmade Mega-Laprases, and to me, little to none have given me that Lapras feel. This majestic yet gentle feel that Lapras gives off. Most of them come off as either looking like a brute or just the missed that feel I'm looking for. Lapras is something that rescues human beings and understand them perfectly. Lapras isn't something that should look threatening or high above something towards its fellow humans. So, I decided to tackle on my own version of Mega-Lapras and here's the result. Thumbs Up 

Enjoy~! Pokemon - Lapras 


Type: ICE/DRAGON
Ability: Refrigerate

Mega's Description: The horn on its head will form an icicle with a constant icy mist forming around it. A light will then shine brightly at the horn's tip within the mist. A thin layer of hard snow will form in a smooth wave-like pattern on its frontal fins and a spiky wave-like pattern on its ear-like appendages. A layer of snow will also appear on each spike(?) on its shell. Finally, a thick layer of protective ice will form on its neck.
With this new mega, Lapras should be able to learn Freeze-Dry and Hyper Voice naturally. (By "naturally" I mean it'll learn it by level up)



---Dex Entries---

1: "With its horn shining brightly, Mega Lapras will use it as a guide to escort vessels out of the natural dangers of the sea."

2: "There was once a tale in a deadly storm. A captain and his crewmates once saw a light from the distance. The crew was spooked to think it was a ghost or alien, but the captain saw it as a beacon of hope."

3: "Some had speculated that the horn illuminates by the icy mist reflecting light around the icy part of the horn. People made it known as the "The Beacon of Hope"."

4: "Its horn is so cold and dry, it forms a continuous mist that is capable of reaching temperatures far below 0."

5: "Due to the horn's freezing temperatures, Mega Lapras cannot dunk it's head underwater or the water will instantly freeze around itself. Therefore, it cannot hunt in this form."

As much as I love them, I’m afraid that I could never design an unofficial Mega; especially one that looks so good. Anything in particular serve as inspiration here?

Heh. Thanks~
Well, if ya ever get interested into doing it then I'd say give it a shot.
Besides I did enjoy a lot of what you did with the designs for Lax.



I'm glad you've asked. Well, there is the dex and stories about Lapras saving others from drowning, since ya know, I really kicked it up a notch upon that. From saving people from drowning to saving entire ships from sinking.
But other than that, there is one design in particular that was inspired from a real life experience.

You see the star-like designs on it's neck armor, correct?

Really? Looking way back, I felt like those Lax forms weren’t all that great. (Maybe Sea, but that’s probably it. You don’t draw that frequently, but you’ve got quality which does more than break even.)

That’s a yep, I notice some stars there.

(Oops forgot the second response. ^~^; )

Well that's based on how dripping water freezes and creates these beautiful crystals inside. It's a pretty unique and beautiful formation. I once found those kinds of formations on one of those multi-shelved mailboxes and I was pretty fascinated by it.

Here's a few examples of those formations from dripping water:

Yeah. I think they were all pretty great aside from Land. The line patterns are a neat concept of design, and I would picture Lax as something like that if he was more of a dragon if anything.

Once I can draw a convincing dragon head, I think I want take one more crack at Lax. Would you mind if I asked then?

(Also, I think I’ll just include the second response here, no matter how short)
Well um, there’s a tiny problem there. Sta.sh links lead to a dashed line image. So I’ll get a look on a computer and see if it’s different there. I’ll take your word for it though.

That'll be fine if you did.

Huh...maybe there wasn't enough time for the image load?
It works fine for me.

Been that way for a while, so something’s not totally right; I don’t think it’s a big concern however. I don’t want to annoy you with an old question, but I never really got the chance to ask for some input. :?

Remember when I asked you what Dansun would likely be in the Fire Emblem universe? Well, in order for it to be fully complete, I’d just like to know what your partner (I wish I knew his actual name) Snivy would be too.

Actually you're fine because the snivy's name is just Snivy. He does have a real name, but it has been forgotten.
Snivy would definitely be someone that heals.
