Commission: Cris's Team by ShadeofShinon Commission: Cris's Team by ShadeofShinon
Pokemon team commission for :iconcriskenyon:
He wanted his team to be portrayed in a more battle-ready way so I came up with this. The dragonair appears to be asleep since it's a Nuzlocke team member who passed away.
The team was really great, I really like these Pokemon. It was hard work but I did enjoy drawing this and I'm satisfied with the outcome, too. :>

I hope you like it!

Ready to fight, huh? I like this one. Gotta love an epic battlefield rain scene. And Cris sure looks hardcore with his shady hat and all.

I like the lion like look you gave absol. I could totally see that thing spouting some wicked cool lines in James Earl Jones's voice. You're really good at bringing out bright red against dark, those eyes are really striking. Pretty good arcanine too, I like all the fur detail you give it. And I am just blown away by how you portrayed scizor and flygon! Those glowing eyes and the armour detail, my goodness. That scizor reminds me of the predator, and flygon's never looked cooler, love the veins in the wings. And you handled the mimicry of scizor's pincers really well. They really do look like mean faces, which is just perfect. Great work on dragonair too, I love its undulating, weaving body and it's a creature drawn by you that has feathers, need I say more? Excellent work. These guys look ready to get dangerous!

Thank you very much for yet another in-depth comment! I really appreciate it that you take your time and write them.
I'm pretty happy with Flygon's and Dragonair's portrayal, too. The commissioner had a clear idea of how he wanted them to look like and I'm very glad that he shared those ideas with me so I could come up with this. It was a very nice picture to work on.
You said this was a Nuzlocke team? The Commissioner didn't happen to say which game did he? Awesome job by the way. Very cool.

I don't think it's a Nuzlocke team, at least not all of it. As far as I know, Dragonair is from a Nuzlocke, region was Johto if I remember right.
Anyway, thanks!
No prob! Thanks for clarifying. I thought that was weird for a Nuzlocke team.
I only see 5 Pokemon.

It's a team of five.

Arcaninessa on käytetty laitonta pörröisyyttä! * Halitus.* :3
