-Eevee- by arvalis -Eevee- by arvalis


Boy this one took forever to get done, it has 8 equally important Pokemon, what a hassle. It was done as a commission for a private client. You can watch almost the entire process over at My Livestream Channel. Now for the flavor text.

Eevees are one of the most unique Pokemon, possessing extreme adaptability. When left in the wild, their surroundings shape their physical form. They are capable of extreme growth in a matter of a few years with radical shifts in their anatomy. When under tutelage of a trainer, Eevee can remain unchanged if kept in a stable environment.

Vaporeon is the result of an Eevee living near a coastline. Trainers can replicate this effect by keeping mined ocean side ore, known colloquially as water stones, around the Eevee while it is trained. Vaporeon are particularly sturdy, capable of living for up to 130 years in one case.

Jolteon is one of the fastest Pokemon one can encounter. They can reach speeds of nearly 80mph(130km/h). Jolteon is excessively dangerous as it is covered in sharp quills in which it is capable of ejecting from its hindquarter at attackers. Jolteon occurs when an Eevee is repeatedly exposed to low levels of electricity, trainers can purchase an electrically charged dense piece of ore and keep in the presence of their Eevee. There have been legends however of Eevee being struck by lightning and evolving on the spot, though the scientific community completely dismisses this.

Flareon are seen as the natural progression of Eevee as they bear the most similarity to them. Flareon occur in the wild when living near volcanic soil and in some cases, hot geysers. Trainers can keep chunk of condensed volcanic ash around their Eevee to encourage Flareon development. Their dense fur acts as a dense barrier against extreme heat, contrary to the popular belief that it would overheat them. Flareon are particularly fond of ground dwelling grass Pokemon, often seen digging up Oddishes and playing with them before they eat them.

Espeon rarely if ever occur in the wild. They are the result of an Eevee being kept in a warm climate or home and being treated exceptionally well. A developing Espeon will require much sunlight as vitamin D is required to aid in the development of a larger brain pan. It can be very unsettling when a trainer's Eevee starts to rapidly lose its coat, but this is normal and should be looked at as a healthy sign of development. Espeon are the noted for their extreme intelligence and surprising speed.

Umbreon are the only member of the Eevee family that is exclusively nocturnal. They are very cautious animals and move very slowly. They are very tough and can fight consistently for hours and take little wear and tear.

Leafeon are nimble forest dwellers. They grow a high density of moss in their fur giving them the appearance of being green. It is the only herbivorous member of the Eevee family, feeding heavily on low lying plants and tree sap. Thanks in part to the sap diet, their saliva is very sticky. When they groom themselves, they often get all manner of plant life and fallen leaves stuck to them. They are also unique in that the paw of an Eevee becomes more hoof-like which lends itself the forest life they lead. They are often the only seen member of the Eevee species in temperate rain forests.

Glaceon is dumb.

This is very nice, but isn't Espeon supposed to have "Velvet-like fur"?

Sorry but, 

Why does everyone make Espeon Hairless in these pictures! It Has fur!!!
Amoryenar Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
actually espeon, going off the fact that eevee is a fox, would be more like a chinese crested with fur only around the ears mainly.

me encanta
Casandraelf Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well, since arvalis won't go into any scientific detail on glaceon since they think it's dumb, i'll take a crack at it

Typically found in cold climates, wild Eevees can become Glaceons over a period of time. The strange appendages growing from its head are actually horns, though what they're meant for is unknown. This is due to Glaceons being difficult to find as they tend to be used for their dense fur.

Quick question did you plan them to look like dogs or cats? I was kind of hoping to see them as Foxes! But this is nice too. I just wanted to see which one you saw them fit as. :3
arvalis Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2015
They arent based on any one thing, the idea was for them to take on traits of many animals.  None of them ever looked very fox like to me.

nice. coming to someone else's art, seeing the artist's opinion, and flying into a hilariously childish rage.

Tech-ca-ni-cally :P The Eevee evolutionary line IS based off of the fennec fox species of our world. :D :P
tyshi Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
My favorite of them all is glaceon lol. I used to have a glaceon at level 89... Until Pokemon Black came out. Lol
MandoJetii Featured By Owner Edited Apr 13, 2015
According to legend, Suicune, Raikou, & Entei were created (i.e. resurrected by Ho-oh) from Vaporeon, Jolteon, & Flareon respectively. It would be cool to add them along with Sylveon.
Sylveon could be a highly domesticated variety.
qwerty123c Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015
Nice Note for all and Glaceon but will you do reboot of this art by adding Sylveon

Arkreon Featured By Owner Edited Apr 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
You made Jolteon look really majestic.
And glaceon.... looks like it has a butt head. Was that on purpose?
Miz-Jynx Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Why don't you like Glaceon?  
randomguye0 Featured By Owner May 2, 2015
Maybe he doesn't like it because of those useless appendages. 
Miz-Jynx Featured By Owner May 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
