Squirtle by LindseyWArt Squirtle by LindseyWArt
EDIT: At the request of some, here's an alternate version of Squirtle with glasses. Go Squirtle Squad! [link]

Also, steps of this can be found here: [link]



I always disliked Squirtle, it is too cute for me, and the only good thing about is it's final evolution, Blastoise. So why paint him? Because an idea popped into my head to create a realistic Squirtle based off the Alligator Snapping Turtle, the beast of all turtles, and to destroy all of Squirtle's cuteness in one fell swoop.

Mission Accomplished. :evillaugh:

Also, I was seriously considering adding sunglasses like Ash's Squirtle in the anime, but I changed my mind at the last second.

Here is what I am talking about: [link]

Finally, I am trying to work more with color. Let me know what you think and what I could improve on. Thanks for looking and I hope everyone enjoys!

I think what I love most about this is that not only is it a wonderfully realistic representation of squirtle, but it also shows how wildly a pokemon's phentotype can vary since this rendition could be the realistic look as well as some of the cuter turtles!

Haha, this is awesome ^^ I did something similar with a Blastoise, they look like they could have been in family also! I guess we both used the Aldebra Giant Tortoise as reference ^^ Have a look at it [link] . As you can see, mine is a photomanipulation though :)

Yours is pretty good, I actually was using a Alligator Snapping Turtle as my reference but they look pretty similar. Anyways, thank you very much.

simen91 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012
I see, I see. It would be natural that the Squirtle looked more like a snapping turtle while the Blastoise like a giant tortoise, so they could still be some kind of family ;) Haha

I suppose I was trying to copy the ugly aspects of a alligator snapping turtle to kill the cuteness out of the character, it is pretty lumpy isn't it? :lol:

Maybe a little more blue on the skin would be better, but the picture in general view is wonderful! Maybe you can do Wartortle & Blastoise too! MP me if you do, please!
