Betrayal of Arceus

Arceus, who had given part of its own life force to Damos to allow the land of Michina to flourish, was betrayed by Marcus - liquid silver was violently poured onto its body, forcing it down into a pit at the bottom of the temple dedicated to its kindess. The silver hardened before Arceus could retaliate, and it became stuck, leaving it open for an endless assault of Electric attacks and more liquid silver...

Finally, this piece is done. This portrays the betrayal of Arceus when Sheena was tricked by Marcus. This was one of my favorite parts of the film, and I really wanted to capture part of it in art form. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Please don't use any of my artwork, including this piece, without my permission. Thank you.

Enjoy.

Lol, it's been a while since the comment xD But yeah, it got pretty angry at everything that happened to it, so someone had to calm it down (I haven't seen the movie in a long time, so I hardly remember it anymore tbh xP)

Wow, from reading the description, this sounds pretty hardcore coming from a kid's series like Pokemon. o.O

This piece basically sums up the whole idea of betrayal. The movie had a great storyline. AND ARCEUS PWNS XD

That part of the movie where Arceus was fully trapped made me cry and it still does. Nice job!

BETRAYAL OF MARCUS TO ARCEUS?
BETRAYAL OF JUDAS TO JESUS ?

Holy cheese. I thought the game designers were Jewish or something! But here they are, implanting little bits of Christianity into their movies. :)

May i use this pic for my avatar? If not I will certainly change it. While I'm thinking about it, can I use any piece of your artwork (except for the LEGEND artwork) for my Fake PKMNCards? PLEASE!!!! :please:

Excellent composition here. The rock structures in the landscape are twisted in an ominous way that gives this picture a feeling of being oppressed. I like that the shading on Arceus is soft, dim, and lifeless- a nice contrast to the sharp and aggressive shapes around him.
