Pokemon Fanart: Lugia - The king of deep sea by Gewalgon Pokemon Fanart: Lugia - The king of deep sea by Gewalgon
It's finally done!
It's a fanart of my favourite Pokemon Lugia in my own version!
I love his melody, his story, how he is flying, how he is swimming... I love all of him!
He was one of my favourite companions trough my childhood!
Especially his melody...
In this YouTube Video you can see how I play Lugias melody on an ocarina... sorry, it's not the best quality, but maybe you like it?

Lugia, the legend of Johto's deep. When we first met lugia in 2000 we were all thinking the same thing: cool. And Lugia has always been that, but never just that. The more story and legend which formed to the creature which was the beast of the sea we learned made the legendary pokemon something else. Beautiful, such grace in it's power and compassion to. Volunteering for a life of isolation so as not to harm anyone with it's awesome power but rising when needed to face a great danger. Lugia is one of my favourite pokemon, it's what a legendary pokemon should be. A legend. And this art does true justice to that legend.

Wow! This is amazing! I love how you made it look like the sun was shining through the water, and into the depths of the ocean.

Lugia seems pretty hard to draw in its regular style, but you could draw it in your own style. Lugia looks beautiful! My favorite part is it's head. The glowing effect of the eye looks perfect. The mouth is slightly open, which is a great touch.

Now moving on to Lugia's body. It is colored very well. The spikes/horns/whatever you would like to call them on it's back and tail, look very nice :D. The hands/wings/whatever you would like to call them, are drawn very well.

I love this drawing so much! You have done a really good job with this. It is very original, and when I saw it I was blown away. This is, by far, my favorite drawing of Lugia.

Overall, I'd give you 5+ Stars :).

Wait...you have an ocarina too!? What kind of?

Lugia's one of my favourite pokémon as well and I've always loved the second movie and lugia's theme. :heart: 
You have captured Lugia's appearance very well in this piece! I love the pose, it gives me a feeling like Lugia would be creating some kind of strong power. :)

Yes, I have! But I don't really know what you mean with "kind"? Are there different kinds?
But if you would like to see my Ocarina, take a look here: youtu.be/9BKX3r70SkQ :3
It looks similiar to this one: images.static-thomann.de/pics/…
Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it! ♥

Yes there are, I've seen so many different kinds of Ocarinas that I can't remember them all. For example look at that:cdn.instructables.com/FZK/PGUH… Well, some of those are obviosly inspired by Zelda games. The game series have also made Ocarinas more common, I think. ^^
I've seen some people even making them out of vegetables, eggs etc.

My fried's first Ocarina was 8-hole. I couldn't find a good picture but it's similar to this if you remove one hole on the bottom right corner so that it looks symmetric. Now both of us have 12-hole Ocarinas, which we ordered from Germany. :D Here's mine: link

Do you know a good way how to clean your Ocarina or how do you do it? I've tried to ask about it, but it's not that common in Finland so only info I've heard goes like: put it underwater for a short while and then wait until it's dry. I don't think it's enough...
You're welcome as always! <3

Oh cool, thanks for the links!
Well, honestly I don't play that much, I didn't have to clean it yet, so I don't know. But I think I would do something similiar, put it under warm water and try to shake it a little bit.
You could also try to use a pipe cleaner. And if you like put some paper towel around it. Just an idea.

I haven't played in years and mine sounds very false. I could practice again (once I've cleaned it) now when I've forgotten almost everything. :XD:
Actually I asked at the music shop keeper and he gave me one. But it turned out as a bad idea because fur from the pipe cleaner loosens all the time and then it's not good idea to make an Ocarina wet. But maybe your idea could work, have to try, thanks for the tips. :]

Lugia was always my favourite Pokemon and it will ever be.
Suicune resonates also a lot with me.
I have a question, do you have a special feeling when you hear Lugia's melody too?
It's just amazing...

I prefer it on ocarina, as it is more focused more on melody!

Gewalgon Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, I didn't mean the medium, the way the melody is played, just the melody, the tones itsself^^
But on Ocarina it sounds really best! I have an Ocarina and can play it! :la:

Awesome work! I really like it!
Even if Lugia isn't a dragon in pokemon, it is for me. But it's attacks in Pokemon Crystal aren't something (played on emulator for Android, don't remember the name).

How did you learn to play it on the Ocarina?

And um, where can you buy one? xD I love them so much! haha

Thank you that you taked a look! :aww:
I bought mine in Germany :XD:
But I'm sure you can find Ocarinas on Amazon.com
I can't read music notes, so I learned through listening to Lugia's Melody and trying to find out the right tones.
But you can find a lot of tutorials on YouTube that can be helpful^^
