014: Kakuna by Rikkoshaye 014: Kakuna by Rikkoshaye
I always thought Kakuna was one of the coolest Pokemon design-wise, which is a pity because it is only around for three levels before it evolves. Still, out of all the original bug Pokemon, Kakuna (in my opinion) is the best. I guess being powerful isn't everything. :)

A lot of people draw Kakuna just standing around or hanging from a tree, which I guess is all that a Kakuna would really do. But I decided to draw mine sleeping on a treetop somewhere. I'm not sure how the Pokemon would get to the top of a tree; perhaps a friendly Beedrill thought it would like to spend a night overlooking the landscape or something. Either way, it seems pretty happy up there. :)

It looks like that Kakuna is wearing a tie.

Kakuna's design actually looks like he has a tie!  Check it out: img.pokemondb.net/artwork/kaku…

Pretty cool imo.  :D

I think it is it's hands tucked in one spot. It's actually Beedrill in a shell, thus a nice dapper look.

I love this a ridiculous amount, even though Kakuna's not one of my favorite bugs.
I really liked how easily you were able to create the illusion of form with that kind of coloring style. oAo

Aww, thanks! :) Yeah, I think it must be those strategically placed white bubbles that help with the illusion, heh. I'm super glad you like it though, it's definitely one of my favs as well. ^.^

Kakuna was my favorite also. It was indeed one of the coolest bug types. Dunno why, there's just something aesthetically pleasing about it. Nice picture.
