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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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! just to clarify: disposition refers to one's personality. so I was saying that the Quagsire's personality is adorable.
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.
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.
