-Scyther- by arvalis -Scyther- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Edit: I always saw Scyther as a very dinosaur/dragon looking critter with some bug parts. It has come to my attention that others did not see it this way, they saw him as more of bug. This is my interpretation. If you want him more insect-like, you're more than welcome to draw him that way :)

Always thought Scyther was pretty sweet. Always wished he was actually a better pokemon. This is the Scyther I always wanted. You can see the entire process recording over at My Livestream Channel

  I guess going the raptor route makes sense, but it's missing some real working wings IMO.

love scyther since d 1st generation, n always thought that it's evolved version makes it look weaker than b4.
N also i'd read a pokemon manga which Gary is a calm n cool pro pokemon trainer n he owns a scyther which makes me love this pokemon more than ever.

Ehh... Scizor doesn't look any less weak or strong than Scyther, IMO. The metallic coating makes it seem more powerful.

I love Scyther.... not a fan of his evolution though. Yeah he needed to be a more powerful pokemon on his own.
I love your Art, its really well done.

I disagree; if you actually know what you're doing Scizor can be pretty tanky.

i'm guessing that his little scythe hands are retractable for hiding them right? cause id imagine them to be bigger. so is it like he has them retracted in this.

Hm, with the reptilian look that a realistic Scizor would have after this Scither, could he be made as a Hydreigon's relative? I mean, Scizors' pincers are very mouth-like and even have fake eyes.
Btw, I always preferred Scyther design over Scizor's due the dinosaurish look of the first.
Reply
:iconarvalis:
arvalis Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014
Haha back when I did this I wasn't really thinking about how he would look as scizor.  So it would take a few mental backflips to make it work most likely.  I'm still not really sure how I would handle hydreigon, not sure if I would go polycephalic or if it would have arms that mimic heads.  I would definitely do the hand head mimic idea if it werent for zweilous, who pretty clearly has two heads.
Reply
:iconthatpervytrap:
Maybe it could be a seperate organism that has evolved to look like a head and has a mutualistic symbiosis with zweilous? Perhaps they attach to them as deinos and release chemicals into their bloodstream that allows for higher levels of metabolism which allows it to grow into a zweilous while the zweilous protects them? I dunno

:iconvitor-silva:
Vitor-Silva Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014  Student
Yeah, Zweiloius would block this concept. The closest thing I can imagine to justify its second head is a molted neck+head skin that didn't unfastened the animal, but this don't appears to work at all, the skin couldn't maintain a living posture and there is no motivation to Deinos keep this thing (intimidation maybe, but still absurd :P). A multi-headed Scizor sounds interesting too, but problematic to explain how Scyther lost the arms and grew other heads.

I still don't see why they designed him to look reptilian when he's supposed to be a bug-type. Oh well, because of that we got this awesome artwork.
