-Garchomp- by arvalis -Garchomp- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Garchomp is the best. Probably among the most difficult Pokemon to make look somewhat realistic, those arms man, those arms. Its pretty loose and sketchy, but I thought it deserved more than Tumblr. Here is a joke just for any paleo artists that may see this; you could also call this a Carcharodontosaurus carcharias.

I must say this is one of your better attempts at realistic pokemon but you kinda removed too much of his iconic arms, because they play a huge role in how this creature fights. I would have gone with a more flexible approach, if even to add a lil bat or something.

It's one of few that really captures the pokemon species rather than your often total species revamps. They're great as well, but it doesn't need to be something that existed to look realistic. 
Just my personal two cents

I just keep imagining this guy as flailing a bit before faceplanting. Looks like it's hard to stay balanced!

Sheesh... I'm not sure whether I'm amused or scared by him, but you get major props for doing anything with him. :o That's just really tough to try to force realism onto, unless you removed all/most of the shark elements.

Also, I like the details on the back.

Hey man! I saw very unacceptable  criticism on your work.. but this is almost the thing we would see in real life!, IKR! i imagine that Garnchomp walking on our earth maybe it will more creepy than this !!! Keep on the good work and let your imagination run Wild! Don't let other non imaginary people tell you differ Keep on the good work! just for the fun fact you may change the arms only not the Hole piece. over all I love It!

This is a shark with dinosaur legs.
This has nothing in common with garchomp beyond color scheme. This couldn't even operate in the same manner garchomp is shown to.

Look, I will never not awe at your technical skill, but some of these designs you have put no effort into whatsoever.

This was a 3 hour sketch done on a suturday night at 2am, it was the very first one.  Is it not well thought out, there was no reference involved, no research, nothing.  What it is, is the ground work for the series.  I almost didn't even post it on deviantART because I thought it wasn't gallery worthy.  The only reason I did is because tumblr liked it a fair bit.  If I was going to redo any piece, it would be this one.  It is a nice little sketch, but its no where near the level of almost every other piece.
