:Ancient Terror: Omastar by endless-whispers :Ancient Terror: Omastar by endless-whispers
Inspired by the artwork for Cloyster δ from the TCG set EX Dragon Frontiers (illustrated by Mistuhiro Arita) and countless sea monster stories.

Omastar could possibly be one of the most overlooked Pokemon - I myself never trained one in my games, and it only got a holographic rarity once in the entire history of the Pokemon TCG. For this picture, I took the liberty of adding an extra set of teeth to make it more menacing.

Possibly my bravest attempt at water so far. It actually looks like its flowing ;P!

As a guy who thinks most rock pokemon are lame, omastar is one of the few exceptions. It's my favorite. Yet I will say: I would make it a hobby if I could to beat up omastar using breloom, torterra, or chesnaut since they have resistance to rock and water. I say this because of my disdain for rock types.

This thing is going to be so broken in Black and White. Literally. Shell Break gives it +2 Attack, Special Attack and Speed. Combined with Swift Swim and Rain Dance... it will rape the face off of competitive pokemon. :D

yes, i would say so too, i have to admit that i've recently forgotten all about Omastar even existing ^^;
with that pair of teeth barred, Omastar looks so much more fierce and menacing than usual :XD:
I love the shading alot, especially on the tentecles and the colours give it a intense and action-y feel too it<3

i add to the people who saya that this guy is really overlooked :D but when you train it, he's one cool monster.

great job as usual. :worship: it feels like he's deep underwater, ready to strike those who wander carelessly into its realm..
