Edit: Changed the jaw, nostrils, and part of the eyes to match what is seen in clearer images of Volcanion. Parts may still be incorrect.
My artwork for Volcanion, a supposed Fire/Water-Type Mythical Pokémon in X and Y. Following some leaked information not too long ago (their names and possible Type combinations), images of the Mythical Pokémon (often called "Event Legendaries") of X and Y were leaked by a user named Smealum. Whether the images are true or not isn't 100% confirmed but it's highly likely given the circumstances.
Here I went with a very basic head-on pose because I didn't want to just re-draw the pose from the leaked image. Since we don't have many references for it a lot of its design is still a mystery and left up to speculation - this pose made it so that I was able to draw only details I could definitely (or 99%) make out. Even so, there are still things I'm not 100% sure about.
Enjoy. I plan on drawing the other two Mythical Pokémon (Diancie and Hoopa) over the next couple days.
THE BIG MAN HIMSELF! Biggie Steams! No, seriously, I love these drawings, and they bring back so many fond memories of me standing in Santalune Forest completely still for an hour because my friend tricked me into thinking that's how I trigger a battle with it, and struggling around the Kalos Badlands trying to find another key to the powerplants. Also, can we talk about how this man cleared mountain ranges with some water vapor?!
This is very impressivly drawn and looks precisely like the pokemon, you've got talent from being able to draw this pokemon from different sides if it wasnt looking ahead like this in the leaked image ^^
I love its design so much! When people say, "I just don't get what it is" I say "that's the point!". I love the monster design, and the steam idea. I never knew water vapor could be so cool!......And powerful enough to level an entire region-worth of mountain range.....😅 Don't make it angry~
