Talonflame

Here is my Talonflame. I haven't decided if it is Bloodwing (my starter in Pokemon Y) or Cardinal (Bloodwing's great grandson). And yes, I consider Fletchling/Fletchinder/Talonflame to be my starter; Chespin was just a temporary main until I caught this one.
Done for the old class blog as well as Pokemon profile picture month.
For whatever reason, the colors don't display correctly here. This link shows the image properly: mikeshachookspday13.blogspot.c…

Holy crap but what an amazing work! it not only has a great detail, colors and realism, but it didn't lose its Pokemon "essence" in the process.

You should do more work like this. There are plenty of pokemon that could really use this kind of detailed realism.
I'm tired of seeing photoshoped images like a yellow mouse or a lizard with a bulbasaur bulb. This is the kind of "pokemon realism" that is needed.

Do you intend to do more, or just ones based on your playthroughs/fanfiction?
Yggdrassal's avatar
I might do more eventually if I can decide which one to do. I'm trying to get away from fanarts a bit though (unless its for a specific contest or something like that). Currently I don't have any pokemon planned.

"And yes, I consider Fletchling/Fletchinder/Talonflame to be my starter; Chespin was just a temporary main until I caught this one."

YOU AND ME BOTH.  I literally did not proceed through the game until I had caught my female Fletchling, and for some reason the game WOULD NOT GIVE ME ONE for a good hour.  I ran into more Pikachu and Dunsparce than I did Fletchling. :|
Yggdrassal's avatar
Yeah, I recall my first fletchling taking awhile to appear, then after I got one, that's all I found.
windfalcon's avatar
It's like the game knows =_=

I will forever be convinced of this phenomenon that games know exactly what you want and choose not to give it to you.
