Betrayal of Arceus by Xous54 Betrayal of Arceus by Xous54
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)

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.

I had tears in my eyes when I first saw this movie, and first saw Arceus' betrayal. I was like, "Damn. I'd be pissed too." And then when Arceus was betrayed AGAIN, because of Sheena's mistake, I was really pissed! And I LOVED the fact that DAN GREEN voiced Damos! Dan Green's gotta be one of my top favorite voice actors.

Anyway, I loved this, and faved it as soon as I saw it. You're very talented! Arceus looks exactly like he does in the movie! Nice job! :)

Um...the chamber is stone, not wood, and the pit is a little deeper than that.
Sorry, I hope you don't mind me criticizing, but the arceus is great!

I'm not going to lie. I hated this scene. :(
Maybe just because Arceus didn't blow up the place and kill them all? I mean, he created the earth for Arceus' sake! :x
Really, I hate how underpowered the legendaries are. "Hey look, I'm Dialga. I control all of effing time but I get my ass beaten by a freaking level 60 Pikachu which means I can be killed by half the trainers in the world HURP DERP." :dummy:

Anyway, my long comments and candid opinions aside, I really love the flow of the... Inside... Cave.. Thing at the top. The inner rooms of the whole area were really neat, especially with the open walled hallway winding down said cave thing. I'm not really sure if it was intended, but the rock formations next to Arceus' pose at the bottom really conveyed a sense of.. Despair? Distress? Either way, that was the height of the drawing, and it really set the mood for the whole scene. Also, is that Marcus standing on the ledge there? :D
(My, what a disjointed and ugly comment :()

As far as the first part of this comment goes, here's my take on it. The legendaries are bored. I mean, you make everything and then...what? Sit on your arse and do nothing for eternity? At least getting caught gives you something to do.
