Annoying and useless Pokemon #1 and #2 look like they finally have a shred of dignity at last...

You've obviously never used a Dragon Dance Crawdaunt.

Awesome job!  It'd be cool to see your artistic interpretations of other pokemon.  I like how these Magikarp actually look more intimidating (and with some teeth); something that would actually develop into a Gyarados.

Thank you! To be honest the design in this pic was created by the commissioner, who provided me with a base lineart. However I would probably do something similar, though maybe more like an angry koi fish :)

Hooray for bandwagons! :D
I wonder what your interpretation of Gyarados would look like O.O
