Incineroar (slight) redesign by Kipine Incineroar (slight) redesign by Kipine
I redesigned Incineroar a bit for fun! I dig its regular design, but there's some things in its design I don't really like. So I tried to change its design to something I'd have in my team.
I kept it mostly the same! If I completely redesigned it, it would be quite different.

Also tried to mimic Sugimori-style, after a long time. It's always fun!

Kinda reminds me of a concept from an Obscure anime. Permission to tell you about it?

did you also do this with the circus theme everybody thought was gonna happen in mind? the ring of fire makes me think of that old trope of circus tigers jumping through hoops

Found this randomly and I adore it. Though I love my wrestler tiger just how he is, especially after learning the cultural background for his design, I would have equally enjoyed having this on my team. Looks sleek and powerful, and that smirk! <3 Beautiful design!

While I enjoy Incineroar just the way he is (I love his little sneering animation in Sun and Moon), this is a wonderful re-interpretation of the character. Great job! :D

i prefere this design to the original. much more detailed and cuter! my little torracat could've stayed kind of cute if it just evolved into this guy XD

but instead Nintendo made it from cute little kitten, to baby tiger, to bada** wrestler.. well, Nintendo logic.

i would've preferred this so much over the actual evolution. i don't like the anthro thing, it just looks off on him, especially the five fingers look creepy

Man, this would have been way better. I was so disappointed to find that it was going to be another fire/fighting biped. 
I know it's not TECHNICALLY fire/fighting being fire/dark but that makes it worse because it has blatantly fighting type moves (it's Zmove is WRESTLING) but dark is weak to fighting >:U And like others have said, there were no hints of fighting/wrestling in either of the previous forms. 
And personally I really disliked the shape they gave it, even with it being biped. its hands are awkwardly large, and it just looks weeeird 
/end rant

Lovely artwork, you captured the feel of the official artwork pretty well!

God damm, this looks super cool. :o
Reminds me a lot more of the older style of Pokemon that didn't pander to a specific audience consistenly.
Mind you, Inciniroar is a good avatar for the new Pokemon games but if you look at it from its previous evolution traits,
it just didn't really suit it.
Really would've preferred this imo

Also, do you remember those "leaks" that some fan came up with coming up to Pokemon SM's reveal?
They had the trainers looking like students and had a bear as a fire starter.
It looked super cool and reminded me of what Pokemon could look like if it kept up its originality after Black and White.

AHH this would have been SO much better then the official one. (Well TBA most redesigns are better then the official)
But something I like particularly about your rendition is the ring of flames that extends from the chest. It's really unique to anything I've seen previously remade and makes me think of a lion jumping through a flame hoop like in the old circuses.

I agree, yours is definitely an improvement. ^-^

I wouldn't let me Torracat evolve because I didn't like the final design. I hated the stupid muscle flexing thing Incineroar would do. Like it was anything fire/fighting type. No, I disagree!

something like this wouldve made so much more sense! this is what a fire/dark looks like
the one we got still looks like a fire/fighting and i hate it ;_;

Damn! I would've loved to see my starter turn out like this instead. Much less of an awkward transition from 4-legged to 2. In any case the design looks awesome, what a beast! That ring of fire is such a cool touch!<3

This is exactly what I expected it to turn into when the concept art of the starters was announced. The circus theme thing. The only one to kind of keep it was Decidueye. I still kind of resent that Popplio didn't turn into a clown either.

I really like how this version of the design follows it's basic and first stage more closely, and the ring of fire is a very cool feature! I'm very curious what you would tweak in your rendition of a true re-imagining now though~

Thank you!
Hmm, I decided to sketch something that I would have designed: ´v`

Tiger Fakemon by Kipine

It's a very "improvisation"-style design, so it's kind of basic and too animal-y for a pokemon I think, but something like that! (also didn't design it based on litten here that much)
