Commission for :icongifted-monster:

I thought it would be cool to portray Reshiram as sort a proto-bird. Maybe as like an ancestor to Ho-oh is what I was thinking. He has been adorned with silver bangles which he was worshipped by. He is considerably less mammalian than you may be accustomed to, but I thought it would look strange if I threw a goat head on a dinosaur bird body. Alternative title for the paleo art aficionados could be Macroraptor

i'm sure you will do it ok
it's not like asking you to do Arceus, becuase..well that thing most be really difficult to do in a realistic way..it's...well arceus have a weird desing
but if you manage yourself to do giratina and an epic version of reshiram, i'm sure you will be able to do it
but some of your desings i find them a little weird xD
for example, giratina es more like a bug, dragonite is a salamander...with wing, and n idoking, well he looks like a prehistoric rat-pig...something
well even knowing that..they still look awesome -w-

Rexyky19 Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Microraptor is a proto-bird  therefor a link between bird and reptile and not technically a dinosaur

Daniela0114 Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
well scientists hypothesis about evolution of birds came from dinosaurs and for dinosaurs reptiles so technically u are saying it is a Dino.anyways let's drop this topic ok?

Beautiful, it's amazing how well it resembles the original pokemon! I will never look at Reshiram the same way again, he will always be twice as awesome. I, personally, am terrible at realistic art, so I'm not sure how you did this. Are the realistic versions the way you view the pokemon everyday, or does it take some time to come up with a design?

By describing a Reshiram as "a goat head on a dinosaur bird body", I picture Reshiram as the Chupacabra.
