Couldn't it just use Recover to instantly heal? Like, it would heal in seconds not days.

The take on that would mean there is no actual danger or threat in the Pokemon world Im "creating". This is a time setting that predates the big stadiums etc. Pokegear's and Pokedex's aren't around. The professor is actually creating his guide to assist with the creation of the Pokedex. The move, Recover, is only taught to Pokemon whom have been with their trainer for a while and have been able to learn such "attacks". Besides, it wouldn't make for such a good story if he just recovered and ran away. :P

THere it is! Wow, Quagsire is one of my favorites of Gen II and this story was very good to go with the rest of the tale and introduce Quagsire.

Your work is phenomenal and you should be very proud. Please, however, be careful if you try to print anything like this. Nintendo is legendary with their vicious attacks against fan works of their IPs.

That said, I look forward to seeing more work from such a mature and dedicated fan.

Your work is phenomenal and you should truly be proud. Please be careful though to keep this low key as Nintendo is near legendary for viciously attacking fan-works of their IPs.

This is just a guess, but it looks like your depiction of Quagsire was based on Koolasuchus

If by Koolaschus, you mean Giant Chinese Salamander, then yes. ;)

Koolasuchus was a prehistoric amphibian predator that lived in Antarctica, during the mid-cretaceous period. It was about 5 meters in length.

I love the 18th century field guide style. Not such a big fan of Pokemon but it's very nice to see them in such an in-depth "study". Can't wait to see more of these.

I just want to thank you. Soupandbetter is probably one of the better known "realistic" artists of Pokemon, but I find most of his drawings are too grotesques. You seem to capture these Pokemon in ways where I would believe I could stumble upon them. Please, keep it going, for the love of Arceus.

Have you ever considered doing one of these on Yanmega? It's my favorite pokemon personally, and I'd be curious to see how you draw it.

Yeah Yanmega is awesome. Ive busy the past couple weeks. I always plan on doing more pages and then I get stuck in other projects. I'll definitely do this Pokemon though.

aww... you did a great job with Quagsire! I honestly couldn't imagine what Quagsire would look like realistically! So this was a surprise to see! That Quagsire's disposition is absolutely adorable! I really would love to have one in real life!
Reply
:iconcasteelart:
CasteelArt Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, my issue was how to make him look somewhat injured here and leave the mind open to imagine what it would look like in a bipedal state. I think the bipedal stance would be awkward but I think he could pull it off. :P

:iconice-blood93:
Ice-blood93 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011
I think you did a good job. and seeing that Quagsire are always a little clumsy looking I think it would work out just fine when it's show to be bi-pedal! :D
just to clarify: disposition refers to one's personality. so I was saying that the Quagsire's personality is adorable.

I know! I watched a show on Animal Planet about "odd creatures" and they had an Azolotl featured. I fell in love! LOL

hanan109 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011
Yeah, they're pretty awesome! Did you see (and this is my herpetologist speaking) how when their water is slowly taken away, they lose their gills and adapt to land, and then grow their gills again? I think that's spectacular! I love your field guide by the way, I had a similar idea, but never got around to it.

CasteelArt Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
They actually have an "adult" Axolotl!! It has lived for I think 3 years as an adult. Basically it looks just like a Salamander. The odd thing is, is that they normally have that gene repressed. Though, I can not really speak in terms of exact facts as I am just a fan and neither a student or an expert on the subject. :P

I heard something about 'them' trying to create and adult one, but I didn't know it was successful! I'm not either, but I would like to be, you know?

Thanks, I wanted to make it look as less "derpy" LOL. I am glad that came across as intended.
