-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'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.

: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.

: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

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.

I thought Scyther was a dinosaur or dragon when I firstly saw it, then I saw its Pokedex entry and was all "Bug type!? I've been lied to!" But this looks incredible ^_^

Hope they'll one day make a Mega Scyther that's part dragon. Would be the first Bug/Dragon type pokemon.
Even though Scizor is Scyther's evolution, they have the same base stat total, so I think that's reason enough to give Scyther a Mega of some kind.

Yeah, even though it is an insect there are many features of it that somewhat resemble a reptile. I'm really glad you saw that too and went this route.
