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
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?
