Your field guide is amazing ive read every one of them, I just wish you would do Ninetales, Vulpix, Cubone, or if possible Mawile. I would just love to read how you describe how each behaves. I wouldn't not be too much trouble would it?
i have been reading these and were led here by am accidental google search and i have to say, i love these and Professor Boabab's experiences. if i may make a possible request (and i'm sure you get so many of these you just go past them) but may i ask that in one of your future field guide pages maybe a Typhlosion makes an appearance? that pokemon has been one of my all time favorites in the world and to see it in your art work and in a field guide page of your expertise would be simply amazing. but again, i'm sure you get a lot of these silly requests so i won't mind if it's disregarded. i just thought i'd ask and let you know how amazing these are
awesome, whatever you post i'm sure it will be amazing. i know Professor Boabab has a soft spot for fire pokemon like myself and i thought after reading all your currefnt field guides that he may really like Typhlosion, but again, either way, i'm looking forward to any of your artwork
I think this is one of the most nicely illustrated pieces you've done out of the field guide pokemon, but I hope you don't mind me asking; what's going on with its left foreleg? Is it just lifted in motion? Also, where are the back legs? If the front left is indeed lifted, wouldn't the hind left need to be on the ground just to keep it from collapsing on that side? Sorry for my confusion. Beautiful artwork, I particularly love the texture of the scales (or osteoderms?) and the detail put into the carapace. The description was lovely also, I never thought of this pokemon as one of those maps before, but now I almost want to set up a little miniature train track all around the scenery on its shell, like those tables with the miniature scenery props and whatnot. Great job.
Heya! Thanks for comment. As for the left leg, I drew it with the intention of the front being dragged toward with a bend. As for the back, I didn't get to detailed. The purpose of the sketches are more so that I imagine a Professor encountering the beasts then sketching the encounter from memory into his field book. Sometimes this allows for a full drawing and for others more a general image. The most "important" part of the Pokemon... and others, more of what I feel works artistically.
you always do such amazing work. I was wondering if you were going to add any more 5th gen. to the field guide? How about Serperior? That's seem to be a good choice for this kind of environment. Anyway great work.
i am a big fan of your work! i hope you don't mind me making a secondary commentary on this one. professor pine's journal: today i went down a path recently traveled. the footsteps seemed to be heading in the same direction as we were. i decided to take a break and sit down, and then the strangest thing happened! the ground was moving. later observations made by my snappy side-kick Billy i was sitting on a tortera! the rare find had me amazed! it looked at me shook me of with a great display of strength. i thought for sure that i was a goner but it didn't charge at me. to further inspection the tortera had a large gash on its leg! Penelope my blissey was happy to help. when we bandaged the weakened the giant he started weeping and went over to a sharp rock and groomed the bonsai tree on its back. (it was very ragged might add.) i had Persifle my chatot trim it for him. Persifle was always good with that kind of stuff. we started to leave when the tortera started to fallow me. my chatot translated for me that he wanted to join me on my travels. i caught him and he joined us happily.
Oh yes, Pokedex data... Their weight estimates are one of the few things I ignore from them xD" .. waitwaitwaitWHAT it can swim? O_o"" I always thought Torterra was a tortoise (aka living on land), not a turtle (living in water) O_o""
