Realistic Pokemon-Speedpaints by arvalis Realistic Pokemon-Speedpaints by arvalis

Here are few speedpaints I've been doing using my realistic pokemon redesigns.  I'd like to do a fair bit of these and pick a couple to take to a finished painting stage.  Its greatly liberating to put these designs in environments.  Are there any scenarios you would like to see some of my realistic designs in?

Wow!, these are all awesome!
I'd love to see your version of Giratina in its natural habitat! :O
Prince-Of-Sin Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2015  Student Digital Artist
It's natural habitat is rather "flimsy" per say. cx  

Since she lives in the opposite or flip world.

you art id really good, but it terrifies me D: You are good at drawing but this style (I saw some similar dinosaur-films when I was a child) as always terrified me >///<
warnett Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2015
This is so cool.  Wild pokemon in their natural habitats, and is that a druddigon with the dragonite?  Just curious about that last bit.  
KillerHound Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2015
Just gotta love this so amazing 
squidlifecrisis Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2015   Digital Artist
All these compositions are absolutely breathtaking! Dragonite's is my favorite :D
ShadowKaiserin Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2014
I get the feeling this is very much what the Hoenn region would look like in real life. 
RyuEl13 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That Dragonite's creeepy!!
TheOmegas2 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
I would love to see the Ghost&Dark  pokemon in their enviroments.
ulterno617 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
so wheres druddigon in this.
aoicoppelion Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
I think he/she placed the Druddigon for the Deerling in Dragonite's panel

By the way, is the Dragonite swimming in a swamp or near the edge of a pond?
Imantana Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Either way that Girafarig is gunna be lunch.
aoicoppelion Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014
I thought it was a Deerling...?

Oh well...
Imantana Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Haha sorry! Looking closer, it has the brown-yellow colouring of Deerling. It also doesn't have that chain-chomp tail of Girafarig. ;)
ulterno617 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I think so.
Rainbows-Rule123 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
beautiful... just... breath taking 
s0lidsteel Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You know, pokemon has been ruined for me ever since black and white. But dear God this is so unbelievably amazing.
WeirdoQueen Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014
these are beautiful, do you think you can make some of them available as prints?
arvalis Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014
I uploaded this just for you…
WeirdoQueen Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2014
oh wow, thanks so much!!
GreatJorb Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014
I would love to hang a large version of the top center piece on my wall. 
Starhorse Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Professional General Artist
I'd love to see your arcanine design in one of these, perhaps in an India-like setting? 
TheWatcherofWorlds Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2014
this is very amazing, I like that they look like Walking With Pokemon or something

all i can say is you should do these more often

i suggest maybe the Dragonite springing out of the water like a croc, a swimming Lugia or maybe a Venusaur facing off against a Charizard?

its just something to think about
Tako8Yaki Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014
If I had to choose I'd say Flygon and Dragonite. Flygon just looks the most at home in his environment and has the most personality. Dragonite I love because it's the only picture in the group that actually continues after the moment it conveys. The mind runs wild with what you expect to happen next.

Lugia psychically telling a dick joke to a pokemon trainer.
Kieranto Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Holy moly these are awesome!
GreyIsWeird Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2014
I really want to know what poor Pokemon is about to be devoured by Dragonite?
arvalis Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2014
cHoViiRuuS Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2014
probably a deerling
Kas-F Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014   General Artist
Maybe...since you had the idea of Zubats being a child's first Pokémon, why not a Zubat/Golbat/Crobat in a household setting?
PixelMoniac Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would really like to see aggron in a cave or lugia in that place you find it in soulsilver :3
Chigiri16 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Do you think you do another one of these when you have time?
arvalis Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014
I would like to, yeah.
ZakMan-Pro Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2014
You should do the legendary bird trio as a part of you realistic Pokémon series. I really like Kanto.
Skeletronable Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
This is so amazing! :D
GosutoGhost Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Giratina slowly gliding through a portal from the distortion world. That'd be cool..
fireofflare Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I was thinking maybe two Tyrantrums laying down underneath the forest leaves watching over there baby Tyrunts play?
ShadOBabe Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Realistic Lugia levitating over the ocean!!
And Reshiram!! I don't know WHERE Reshiram could be though... Flying through the sky, maybe?
uauaUahalo Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist
first of all i have to say that i love your paintings in general. you have the great gift to let pokemon appear so realistic they could be real, what for me is stunning because i always was a big fan of pokemon and imagined to live in their world but had trouble to imagine them in another, more realistic way, like they would appear if not drawn in this manga/comic style which in my opinion gets stronger every new generation of pokemon... anyway, now seeing these pokemon not only in a realistic form but also in a realistic enviorment makes me go nuts!!!

so i'd love to see some pokemon in woods, like in the left one with dragonite. doesn't matter which pokemon (well the one who live there obviusly ;) ) and here some pokemon i'd also love to see in there natural enviorment (what ever it is): zoroark, dragonite, charizard, bulbasaur, meganium

greatings and keep up the good work :D
