I only do these as commissions, as in I do them for money. Right now my commissions are closed so I'm not taking new ones.

Wow! That dialga looks deadly! The ferocity of that beast's face really popped out at me here, that thing really drew my attention! There's something about this version which makes this thing look much more monstrous than dialga usually does. I think it's probably that it looks more organic than normal. Dialga normally looks kind of mechanical, but this one's got a look of primal rage, a terrifying force of nature which makes it look much scarier than the official rendition, looking less like a human creation and more like something no human could conceive, something above and beyond humanity. The detailed scales, forehead ridges and razor sharp teeth help improve the terror in its presence, and the glowing eye is literally brilliant. Great job with the neon blue stripes as well, and I like how you've added a few extra ones, giving the spines the look of having luminescent veins coursing through them. 

And as for the other team? Yeah, I guess there are more than them. Sure in the shadow of that dialga though, and rightfully so, it being the only uber legendary among them. Those are some pretty neat-looking shinies. Rapidash and its silver flame mane sure looks nice, your skill at drawing odd-coloured flames is impressive. And I love the muscular detail and potent glare the rapidash gives. You've definitely brought out the horse's imposing side, and I like that. Umbreon's pretty neat too, though the rings don't quite match with the fur texture. If the rings were patterns on umbreon's fur, they probably wouldn't have smooth-looking edges, and even if they were glowing patches right on the skin, I don't think the rings would look that solid. In any case, umbreon's quite well drawn, as is that fierce-looking persian.

You're always great with birds, and articuno here is looking filled-to-the-brim with splendour as ever. Those wings look fantastically delicate and ornamental, and while, this articuno is gorgeous, like an articuno should be, I do like that you've given this one a bit of aggression to it. Articuno tends to be portrayed as something of a fragile beauty, but this one's angry squawk doesn't make it look like the bird one would want to trifle with. Pikachu's well-done too, and I like its ready-for-action stance. You've sure done well making this generally juvenile rodent look badass.

Nice job drawing the trainer too. I like how you draw the trainers as being more human-looking rather than like cute/pretty anime girls. I guess that fits in with how you stylize the pokémon, and all the trainers I've seen you draw before have been based on real people, but I have seen a lot of people who draw stylized, detailed-looking pokémon draw trainers who were relatively glamorous, or even just straight up anime style. You don't seem to make female trainers overtly feminine, and I like that about how you draw. 

Loving this team shot! You sure are good with these!
